Proof that Children are Strange and Stupid

Kids are weird, dumb and easily tricked. All we can say is that we were this stupid once too, but that doesn't make kids not stupid. They make irrational demands, have unrealistic dreams, and believe just about anything. There's a lot of evidence out there that goes to show how kids are stupid and weird.

Real-Life Glitches People Experienced

Sometimes everyday life gets altered in a way that makes us think we're living in a simulation. Sometimes it's just a creepy moment, sometimes it's a strange coincidence. Either way, sometimes something so strange or unlikely happens that we just have to wonder if we're living in a boring, crappy matrix.

Horrible Names People Encountered

You'd think parents would have better judgement, but sometimes people get stuck with incredibly silly names. There are some parents out there who either didn't give a name enough thought, or tried to get too clever with it. Man it would really suck to be named after a transformer.

Obvious Stuff People Learned Way Too Recently

We often take the names of things, and certain processes completely for granted. We often overlook the logical process of how something came to be just because we've never had to actually think about how it got that way.. It makes us feel smart to finally figure something out, but stupid that it took that long. There are a lot of obvious things people realize way too late.

Obvious stuff that people realized way too late | posted by weakenedstrain 42 here song Jingle bells, Batman smells, Robin laid and egg never knew why Robin would lay and egg seemed so random and weird Just this winter, walking down hallway at work finally clicked into place: Robins are birds. Birds lay eggs. Yep. Sharp tack over here.

House Rules People Thought Were Normal Until They Grew Up

It's the natural development of almost every kid that you think your home life is pretty standard until you visit a friend's house or live with someone else. People just believe dumb things as kids. Some some folks realize how good they had it while others just have more questions about their strange parents. Other times rules were just creatively pragmatic.

When People Realized Their Boss Was Dumb

It can be really frustrating to realize your boss is a goddamn moron. Some bosses are just good at hiding the fact that they have no idea what they're doing, but some are not quite so good. Don't get us wrong, many bosses are competent, but these ones really let the stupid cat out of the idiot bag.

Wildly Dumb Things People Were Told

Not everyone has a very good brain. Some people have decent ones, but they're not exactly working for them all the time. We live in a world where people can sort of believe whatever they want, and sometimes people have a personal resistance to wanting to learn, which leads to all of us hearing some really dumb things.

People Who Worked Smarter, Not Harder

Some of the greatest innovations at work come from human laziness. It's just not a good idea to work extra hard when you can think of a way to do the same work more efficiently. That said, don't do too good of a job or your boss might find out that you don't need to work there anymore. One or two of these definitely backfired. And a few definitely weren't as smart as the person first thought.
