Entitled Folks and Their Astounding Boldness

It's absurd, the things entitled people will demand. Most people have a basically realistic view of the things one should expect another person to go out of the way to do for them, but there are a select few who have no idea. Influencers will leave bad reviews for restaurants that don't give them free food. People will post a job listing for a nanny position and end up not actually paying any money. Customers will get mad that the company they buy stuff from also gives some of their product to charity. It's a wild world out there full of entitled people with their absurd audacity.

Annoying Images of Sloppiness and Frustrating Imperfection

We don't live in a mathematically perfect world of right angles and whole numbers, and that's a problem. We're human, so off-center imperfections are the name of our game, and getting used to that reality never gets much easier. Just one "not my job" moment is enough to make something not work in a way that frustrates us completely, but there's not much we can do about it.

Explosive hydroforming is the process of using an explosion to shape metal. The pressure from the explosion in each one of these tanks violently and pretty much instantly turns them into spheres. It's kind of like magic, and it's very fun to watch.

Bragging Brain Lords Who Believe They're Geniuses

There is absolutely nothing wrong with being smart. The world needs smart people. Like a lot. The problem is that dumb people have a tendency to think that they're smart. It could be caused by narcissism. It could be due to the fact that social media gives people a whole lot of space to talk about themselves. Either way these brain tyrants who think they're literal geniuses have a peculiar way of somehow being condescending and stupid at the same time. It's maddening.

Freaky Close Call Decisions that Saved People's Lives

The universe is shifty and unpredictable, and it's impossible to know when an unforeseen danger will be thrown right at you. But sometimes our spidey senses light up, allowing us to make either fast or seemingly precognitive decisions that help us dodge massive bullets. Sometimes a crazy close call is up to chance, but other times people feel a gut instinct keeping them safe.

Tumblr User Spite-posts Mother's Meatloaf Recipe as Revenge

It's one of the more novel and petty forms of revenge we've seen, but damn if it's not compelling. This tumblr user wanted to get back at their homophobic mother in a public show of force, so they landed on sharing her prized meatloaf recipe with the whole-ass internet. It also inspired another user to compile an entire compendium of spite recipes. They say revenge is a dish best served cold, but in this case it's a whole cookbook. There's never a dull moment when it comes to random tumblr gems.

MLM Hun Gets the Facts, Won't Accept Them

Scams are still abundant in this day and age, and one really popular system designed to separate well-meaning people and their money are massive pyramid scheme-like multi-level marketing operations. What makes them hard to deal with is that they're not the traditional kind of scammer that you can just mess with. They suck people in with promises of being your own boss and giving bonuses for recruiting more people, all while siphoning money out of their own "employees" pockets. One big issue with this is that the convinced don't want to be unconvinced, so when given the facts about predatory companies, the duped people involved just double down. It also provides a lot of strange, interesting and frustrating interactions like these, where a near stranger at this person's gym wanted to tell them about a "new and exciting opportunity."

It's everyone's nightmare that some foreign object will find itself in their path while speeding down the freeway, and it's a common enough occurrence that fears of it happening are completely founded. This guy says that the tire was rolled onto the freeway by some guy, which is just about the stupidest cause for any serious accident. Luckily he was able to walk away from it.

Tumblr Thread: The Still On-Patrol Submarines

There's a tradition in the U.S. navy that no submarine is lost at sea, and every Christmas a broadcast is sent out to all the crews of those subs still on duty. Naturally, tumblr took it and made it into a whole ghost ship thing, which is somehow macabre but also heartwarming. Why not, people see some unexplained stuff at sea. For a totally classic navy story, here's a Navy operations officer who pulled the laziest move ever.

Absurd Times People and Things Were Singled Out

We live in an unfair world, but one of the great levelers is the belief that at some point in time, everyone is going to have a bad day. It's a lot harder to believe that when people and things get singled out so unfairlythat reality becomes absurd. It seems like sometimes people and things get singled outto the point that it seems comically impossible for them to catch a break.

Tumblr Thread: Being a Purveyor of Fine Clown Meats

In most cases, someone offering to tell you about a dream they had is the most boring and stupid waste of 5 minutes you can engage in. But when it's from the twisted mind of a tumblr user, and it's about operating an all-clown meat deli, it's really hard not to pay attention. It's got action, crime, drama, science and most importantly a whole lotta clown meat. Here are some more funny, random and shiny tumblr gems.

Creepy Times People's Kids Mentioned "Past Lives"

Kids are weird and they lie a lot, but there's a really strange tendency for three and four-year-olds to mention "back when I flew helicopters in 'nam" or "my previous mother wasn't as nice as you." Is it a weird combination of dreams they had, the power of suggestion, and the fact that kids sometimes don't know what they're saying? Almost certainly. Is it also extremely creepy when a very small child insists that they were a crooked cop who was buried in an unmarked grave? Very much so, yeah. Here's a twitter thread of people's kids saying similarly creepy stuff.

Absolute Weirdest Things That Happened To People

Existence is weird. We take it for granted. It's as if we're conditioned from a young age to overlook the more notably mysterious matters of this thing we call life. Some moments are weirder than others. Like, you feel like you witnessed a literal video game glitch, but it's your life. Sometimes, you encounter an experience that defies the very nature of the reality that you occupy. From there, hopefully you can tell some willing listening ears. Otherwise, you can always share your surreal encounter on a thread like the one we have here.

Company Won't Accept Mortgage Payments, Tells Customer They've Defaulted

There's a type of business that makes itself deliberately hard to navigate just so they can charge weird fees. Some companies will even hide or delay just how much interest they've charged just to bully customers into paying for late fees they didn't even know existed. Navigating the corporate landscape as one person can be an absolute nightmare, but after dealing with the absurd process of paying their own mortgage, this person realized they didn't have to put up with the nonsense. For another tale of financial absurdity, here's a guy who got hounded for a trivial debt and ended up mailing them a dime.

Misfortune Monday: The World Keeps On Turnin'

The world is a merciless place filled with chaos and misfortune of all stripes. It's almost not even worth it thinking about what could go wrong, just because so much can go wrong. Worried your dog will escape your fence? Well he's already chewed up your shoes. Afraid your car will get towed in that iffy spot? Well it's been crushed by a tree. It's clear that in life, things just keep happening and we only have a little bit of control over the menagerie of misfortune that might befall us.
