Misfortune Monday: It Goes On

Life is like a crayon box, and each color represents one of the many flavors of chaos. It's hard to predict what the next thing will be. Maybe you'll get a call that your home is flooded. Maybe you'll wake up to find that a steamroller has parked on your car. Maybe you'll just drop a cake. We learn to tolerate the misfortunes of life because we just kind of have to. So there's that.

Misfortune Monday: Of Course Things Are Like This

Life is a journey. That means there are ups and downs, twists and turns, mistakes, failures, errors and blunders. Expecting everything to go perfectly all the time is just a recipe for disappointment, especially when the only certainty is that life is uncertain. That's not to say we should just expect things to go terribly all the time. Far from it. We just need to realize that windows will break, toilets will explode, trees will fall, and that's just part of the merciless nature of the world.

Misfortune Monday: Why Should Anything Go Right?

Not trying to be a Charlie Brown here, but it's not like there's a natural law dictating that our lives must go perfectly. We just kind of have to hope our lives play out better than horribly and not let the setbacks get to us. That's a hard thing to do in a merciless world where things just keep happening, but we're basically out of options. The world is home to misfortune and chaos, and we are its roommates.

Misfortune Monday: Chaos is Unavoidable

They say that life never gives you more than you can handle, but isn't that a bit of a logical fallacy? We're sort of built to withstand punishment, so just seeing how much we're willing to take is an exercise in futility. Like, of course people "handle" the merciless world around them if you count "handling" as just standing there and taking it. Sounds like some survivorship bias. Whatever chaos occurs, the world keeps on turnin'.

Unlucky Moments of Misfortune and Chaos

Our successes wouldn't seem so great if we didn't have moments of failure and chaos, or so they say. It would probably be just as nice to enjoy a promotion or lottery win without having to deal with all the exploded toilets and dropped eggs that life tends to throw at us, but that's just a personal opinion. Either way, the world is merciless.

Misfortune Monday: It Never Ends

There's no question that the world is merciless. Water damage will destroy ceilings, shelves will collapse, and laptops will explode There's no good way to mitigate every single mistake, failure, error and blunder so we all just have to learn to deal with them. Knowing that life is uncertain doesn't make it less perilous, but it makes it slightly easier to live with.

Misfortune Monday: Life Is Uncertain

For every small thing that can go right, there's about a hundred things that can go wrong. Trampolines get blown away, septic tanks explode, cars drive into lakes, and frisbees get caught in trees like way up there. We know that the world is unpredictable but that doesn't stop us from continuing to try to get things right. That said, bad things just keep happening.

Misfortune Monday: Things Just Keep Happening

There's never going to be a time when things are perfectly alright, but it would be nice to have a few moments of peace. Sadly, this being life and all, that's kind of impossible. Misfortune is abundant and chaos has many names. It could be something as small as a dropped plate of spaghetti or as big as a tornado whipping a house away. A lot can go wrong.

Stephen Piscotty might be one of the unluckiest guys in the MLB. The poor dude was hit three times in the fifth inning. By the end of it he must've been unimaginably fed up.

Misfortune Monday: Chaos Has Many Names

Any resident of this planet is well aware that a lot can go wrong. Spaghettis will be dropped onto carpets. Dump trucks will explode. Frisbees will get stuck on roofs. At a certain point, all we can do is sit back and take in these many flavors of chaos while reminding ourselves that at least it doesn't happen to us every day.

Man's Day Is A Rollercoaster Of Fails

Sometimes life gets inspired and decides to throw us all the curveballs, and we just can't keep up with them. This poor dude ended up fielding a mess of a day. It's the unlucky days filled with struggles that make the actual, rare good days taste that much sweeter though. This dude's struggles might help keep your own in perspective; or at the very least, help you forget about what kind of unfortunate nonsense could be plaguing your existence.

Most Important Things People Broke

Someone on AskReddit got a thread going about the most important things that people broke, with the aftermath. Just imagining the amount of panic-charged adrenaline that must've been coursing through these people after their failures, is enough to give us a case of the clammy hands. 

People describe the most important things they broke, and the aftermath | Sparkselot 12h broke 3,000 diamond at work once wedding ring tightening little princess cut square one with sharp points and all sudden turned into broken "milky/frosted" mess, lol would be surprised on easy is break diamond; especially they have super sharp points can't scratch them, but they will break.
