Dude's Dad Uses Legal Loophole To Speed For Years

Everyone loves a good loophole they can exploit for years. While speeding is an inadvisable thing to do, this dude was able to navigate a legal gray area that allowed him to avoid getting a ticket for half a decade. Who knows if he saved enough time speeding to make up for all the time he spent in court, but still, it's an intriguing misuse of the law. For another amazing loophole, there's this person who made a mockery of a robotics competition

Twitter Thread: How Taylor Swift Cut Out Her Predatory Label

Whether you're a fan of Taylor Swift's music or not, it's interesting to learn about the long, long history of musicians signing horrible deals early in their careers and getting completely shafted later on when it comes to the rights of their own music. It's crazy to think that there are recording artists today don't own their own music, like we're still living in some old-timey Motown story of forgotten legends and cartoonishly evil businessmen. @ThatsMauvelous details the weird legal stunts Swift had to pull to get the rights to her music back from her old label.

Student Corrects Teacher, Teacher Can't Handle It

While it is a teacher's responsibility to know things, they're still human and are capable of getting those things wrong. It's when a teacher says something wrong and doesn't own up to it when things get weird. What's the value in lying to kids just so that you can maintain a false sense of authority? Sometimes teachers don't give their students enough credit, like this tumblr thread about a teacher underestimating their students for a social experiment. With the veritable weirdness some educators display, luckily there are also teachers who pulled total bro moves.

Wild Junk People Tried Selling on the Webs

We live in a world defined by stuff. There's just so much of it all, and sometimes we have so much that we don't know where it should go. We ascribe value to that stuff, whether it be in sentimental, monetary, or in joke form. People end up trying to sell that weird stuff online. Does anyone really want a repurposed couch bicycle or "rare" Dorito? No. Nevertheless, people keep trying to sell their weird and ridiculous junk.

Lingering Customer Can't Use Facilities After Close, Throws Tantrum

Closing time can be a dodgy period for employees. This lady brought her tea from home so it's unclear if she was even a real customer, but expecting to just stay as long as you want when all the employees should be off work anyway? What a way to live your life. Too many customers don't seem to get that closed means closed, like this entitled customer who expects a place to stay open late but can't handle rejection.

Double Take Moments of Warped Perspective

It doesn't take too much of a shift in perspective to totally change what we think we're looking at. In the land of weird perspective, the sky becomes the earth, people have dog faces, plastic bags become fauna, and people's hands get all weird. It's at least fun to believe for a second that a truck could haul a massive building thanks to the magic powers of perspective confuzzling double takery.

Karen Expects Prompt Service For Her Party of 35

Anyone who has ever worked service or retail knows full well the absolute devastation an entitled Karen can wreak on your shift. This one in particular felt like a bustling bar should have no problem suiting the needs of a party of 35, and felt the wrath of a staff overworked. Sometimes the Karens aren't just inconvenienced, sometimes they're defeated by overwhelming kindness.

Inconvenient, Weird and Stupid Interior Design

Building a house is hard. Or at least it seems like it when you see all the "not my job" moments of dubious professionalism that go into building anything. People really have a knack for putting toilets in inconvenient places. Who knows, maybe it's nice to have a toilet at the top of the stairs? It becomes a place to survey your domain. Either way, there's no project that goes on without a few moments of professional ineptitude.

Impressive Creations of Dubious Taste

There's no denying that people are very creative as well as incredibly skilled at making such interesting things. That said, who really wants a toe bed? Maybe this stuff resonates with at least a few people out there, but on the whole, a toilet guitar isn't gonna be something that a lot of us want to buy. It's just a drop in the bucket of the many impressive creations of questionable taste.

Error Grants Person Free Netflix for Years

What do you do when a company makes a mistake and then undermines all of your best efforts to undo that mistake? Apparently you give up and say "fine, I'm watching movies if no one is gonna complain about this." And that movie watching went on for the better part of a decade, so not bad. For some more company shenanigans, here's a dude who got hounded for trivial debt and ended up paying them a dime.

Staff Makes Student Patiently Wait to Report Fire

The hierarchy of school can be strange, especially when there's some miscommunication going on between staff and students. In this case, the staff didn't understand the full scope of what was going on, and had themselves an absurd situation on their hands. Here's a tumblr story of a teacher who underestimated their students in a social experiment, and here are some "that's amazing, but please stop" school stories.

For the love of practical effects and trick-cinematography, here's an ad for Pocari Sweat (a Gatorade-like Japanese sports drink) that has no actual computer generated images but sure-as-hell looks like it does. Yeah, it's an ad, but who cares man. If it takes Pocari Sweat money to make such an interesting and cool thing, then so be it.

Weird and Wild Things Kids Did At School

When you get a few hundred to a thousand developing adults into one building and try to get them to follow rules for 7 hours a day, you are setting up a recipe for weirdness. Some kids wanted attention. Other kids (most of us) were trying not to be cringeworthy and failed. Other kids (also most of us) were just bored. We all remember a day at school, trying to get through some drab math exercises when another kid would lean over and say "dude, did you hear about what Jeremy did?" And what an interesting time we'd all have recounting Jeremy's shenanigans. It's not just the kids, sometimes teachers say weird and wild junk too.

Dude Shows Up At Wrong House for Party, Looks Like Weirdo

It's pretty much every grown man's worst fear to look like an absolute creep. Like, in the top ten "things guys shouldn't shouldn't do" at least numbers 4 through 8 are some variation of "make it seem like you're friends with stranger's kids." It goes without saying why that precedent is in place, but there are good reasons for it. This guy had the less than comfortable experience of accidentally talking his way into a random girl's house. Interesting choice from the mom to just let the whole situation play out just to watch him suffer, but alright. Small errors can snowball out of control, like this guy who accidentally ate 420 dollars worth of beef.
