Triumphant Times Liars Got Called Out

Nothing quite gets us going like the blatant liars of the online world that insist on trying to pawn off their bundles of lies on people that they just don't think will call them out on their dishonest antics.

Dumbest Things People Have Said In All Seriousness

There's nothing so discouraging and mystifying as someone who is completely off their rocker with pure dumbness, spewing off something that they think the rest of the world should take seriously.

The Weirdest Things About America

Someone on AskReddit asked for non-Americans to share the weirdest things about America that Americans don't even realize are weird. It's amazing how weird your country's normalized behavior can seem to the rest of the world.

Tumblr Thread About Horrifying Monster Mold

So, the Elephant's Foot mold sounds like some sort of mythological Medusa-level monster. Sounds to me like a big heap of forbidden pudding. Seriously, no thank you. Here's to hoping we don't find ourselves one day in the future, being enslaved by black mold overlords. 

A quick Tumblr thread shares the story of a terrifying monster mold in Chernobyl | Text - The image is of a reactor core lava formation in the basement of the Chernobyl nuclear plant. It's called the Elephant's Foot and weighs hundreds of tons, but is only a couple meters across. Oh, and regarding the Medusa thing, this picture was taken through a mirror around the corner of the hallway. Because the wheeled camera they sent up to take pictures of it was destroyed by the radiation. The Elephant's

Dirtbag Customer Tries Returning Painting After 4 Months

It starts with this old client trying to dispute a cleared charge on an item they bought 4 months previously, lying about it, admitting it, then holding the transaction hostage. Where do such kind customers get it in their heads that this is the right thing to do? Who are these entitled people with their absurd audacity? It just never stops.

Boss Forbids Use of Work Truck, Surprised When No Work Is Done

We've all had penny pinching bosses who ask too much, but sometimes they set themselves up for failure. It's not a lot of fun to have a boss who tries to enforce contradicting rules. He didn't really give these guys a choice, and to top it all of, went totally incommunicado. Here's one where management illegally banned overtime pay but IT got it all back.

Intense Warning Signs That Should Likely Be Followed

There's no beating around the bush when it comes to spectacular hazards and ominous signs. It's pretty hard to ignore a sign that says "watch your step: open mine shafts" or "radioactive zone" or "step past this line and your mistakes are your own." The creepiest and most sinister signs often mean the most business. It just goes to show that paying attention is usually a good idea.

As explained in this video, the mouth movements you see can influence how you hear a particular sound, even if it's the same sound. It's the McGurk Effect at work, and much like Yanny/Laurel or that damn blue/gold dress it just makes us feel stupid to know how dumb our brains are.

Horrible Things That Are Somehow Legal

There exists a crappy balance between legality, convenience and profitability that we run into every day. Whether it's a company making their infrastructure deliberately confusing, someone making claims that are technically not unprovable, or slight miserable inconveniences, some stuff just feels like it shouldn't be allowed. For some intriguing adventures, here are things people later found out were illegal.

Skolkovo Dynamics. It's like Boston dynamics but with less budget and direction, but a lot more noise. We'll always have a soft spot for useless, noisy and horrible machines. Maybe it's because they remind us so much of ourselves. Either way, these things are a tour de force of crap. Is that a stick?

Infuriating Double Standards People Can't Stand

We live in a culture that at least claims to be sort of merit-based, fair, or at least fair-er than others. That said, we all have to deal with glaring double standards when it comes to work and relationships. Life is unfair, but a lot of this unfairness sure seems like a bunch of BS. Sometimes the unfairness we find ourselves in dips into the absurd, which produces memorable "screw this, I'm out" moments.

Stupid Mistakes Tattoo Artists Witnessed

Tattoos can be tricky business. One typo or slip of the hand can have someone wearing "I love moom" on their bicep for the rest of their life. Tattoo artists take multiple precautions to idiot-proof the process, but we still end up with tattoo choices that have people asking questions. Sometimes the customers themselves are uncontrollable, like in the case of this male Karen who didn't believe a tattoo shop owner.

Sorely Mistaken People Not Getting Satire

Even though satirical news has been around for decades, people still have a really hard time parsing out fact from fiction. Sometimes they'll write-off a absurdly funny headline as fake news. Other times they'll react with appropriate shock after reading a "report" that the gates of hell have been opened. It's funny, but also kinda really disappointing when sadly mistaken people don't understand satire.

People who mistakenly believed satirical news | THEHARDTIMES.NE Friends Tearfully Loot Gamer's Corpse at Funeral Pay Respects Nobody should be touching deceased persons belongings other than next kin is HUGE disrespect family.
