Skillful Creations of Questionable Taste

Craftsmanship and taste are two different things, and sometimes one gets the better of the other. Sure, you can make high quality shoes out of teeth, but you should also be asking yourself if anyone wants to look at them. It's very possible to make a thing that's impressive but also of highly questionable taste.

Skillfully made but very weird creations

Entitled Parent Demands Public Artist Make Art for Them

The world has its unfair share of entitled people with demanding boldness. In this case it's a parent who hit up an artist who makes art for the public, just so they could demand special treatment for their kid.

Literal Moments and Memes that are Technically Correct

If there's one thing that makes us feel less stupid than we actually are, it's our ability to be technically accurate. Sure, being technically correct about something doesn't make us any smarter, but it helps us further avoid the fact that we know way less than we think. Man is that comforting, just kicking your own stupid-can down the road.

Dry Ice Loophole Makes Mockery of Robotics Competition

There's no solution more compelling than those lazy "it's not stupid if it works" moments, even if they're technically against the rules. A low budget or DIY solution might make a judge mad, but you can't say that your solution wasn't effective.

Most Mindless Things People Have Witnessed

Someone on AskReddit got a thread going about the most mindless things that people have ever witnessed out in the world. The thread was inspired by the late George Carlin's infamous quote about how when you meet someone seemingly stupid, there's also another person out there that's going to be twice as dumb as they are. Just considering that, it's no wonder that the kinds of occurrences in this thread are taking place in the world.
