Ridiculous Individuals Who Believe They're Geniuses

The internet isn't lacking absurd individuals who think they're utter geniuses. It's full of folks who are convinced that they're so enlightened that it gives them an excuse to be a jerk, ruin jokes and call very normal strangers morons. The web is smeared with their cringeworthy bragging. It's like some folks think using a new word they learned yesterday will give them psychic powers.

Incompetent "Karen The CFO" Uses Calculator That Doesn't Follow Order Of Operations, Gets Fired By CEO

Karen the CFO put all the trust in that handy dandy, malfunctioning calculator. Turns out Karen would've been much better served if she'd listened to other people's opinions, and not assumed that a calculator that couldn't even factor in the proper order of operations, was correct. No, Karen. That is not how it works.

Dudes do the Math on If a Fart Could Propel Someone in Zero G

Finally, the answer to the question that's been burning you up inside for years.

Short Tumblr Thread on Centaurs Asks The Hard Questions

Tumblr has a never ending interest in mythical creatures, and naturally, people are inclined to ask difficult questions. Since centaurs aren't a real thing, people just kind of use their imaginations, general concensus, math and doodles to get to the bottom of things. For another interesting one, here's the time a doctor on twitter asked where you would defibrillate a centaur.

Tumblr users ask what centaurs can breed with | volcel-official Then question is, would be morally acceptable centaur mate with normal horse Ma pain-and-missouri And would offspring be like? trashcanbees 50% 75% 100% kompanie-mutter hate all this trashcanbees Bigot
