Growing up and getting older is just an ongoing process of realizing that common sense is not nearly as common as you thought it was. In fact, there are a lot of people out there who could use a little help in the "brains" department.
For example, here are some people who might not be the brightest bulbs in the shed.
Some DIY Projects Actually Shouldn't Be Done Yourself
When taking on a project by yourself, you should always make sure you're double-checking your work, especially if it isn't your area of expertise.
In other news, I hope the cat can jump.
I Hope This Is A Joke
Have you ever seen something so unbearably stupid that someone has said or done that you, from the bottom of your heart, hoped that they were joking and are not seriously that unintelligent?
This is one of those times.
Just Wait Until They Hear About Mittens
Some ideas for inventions are just so simple and amazing that you wonder how no one ever thought of them before.
Some ideas you come up with have actually existed for centuries.
Ma'am, A Snorkel Is Not A Solution
When it comes to health, people naturally want to protect themselves when out in public areas.
While there are many different masks that can help protect your airways, a snorkel is not one of them.
Popeye's Favorite Food: Spinch
The difference that a single missing letter can make truly amazes me.
I have been sitting at my desk saying "spinch" and laughing for 10 minutes straight. I highly recommend it.
If I Can't See The Virus, It Can't See Me
When I was a kid, I truly believed that if I couldn't see someone while playing hide-and-seek, then they couldn't see me.
However, I outgrew that mentality by the ripe age of 7.
That Is Not How Math Works
I know that most of us stopped doing basic math the second we didn't have to for work or school anymore.
But I think everyone should know how to count after the age of 6.
I Wonder How Long It Took Him To Find Them
Misplacing your keys is something just about every person does from time to time.
The important factors are a) where you left them, and b) how long it took you to find them.
Health Education Has Failed The Kids
I understand that health education classes weren't always the most useful in teaching students the basics.
But I didn't realize that things were so bad that someone doesn't understand how pregnancy tests work.
"Why Is My Laptop Still Dead?"
Charging any electronic device is generally a two-step process: plug the charging cord into the device and also into an electrical source.
The occasional third step is to plug the power bar into the wall instead of itself.
Did They Even Look At The Photo Before Commenting?
It is physically impossible for that many people to look exactly the same.
And it's highly unlikely that eight people would all wear the same outfit, which would lead any rational person to notice this was photoshopped.
Arthur Write What?
In this person's defense, it took me four tries to spell arthritis for this article, so I understand where they are coming from.
On the other hand, how do you mess up that badly?
Today's Lesson Is On How Reflections Work
For the sake of this person's own mental well-being, I hope they never find themselves in a house of mirrors trying to navigate their way out.
I fear they'd have a meltdown.
Ask Permission Instead Of Forgiveness
What came first: the chicken or the egg?
It was actually the permission the chicken gave you in order to bread it, bake it, and lather it in marinara sauce.
Now Where Is The Logic In That, Dad?
There were few things worse than being forced to run laps alone at practice when playing a team sport.
Except maybe having to run laps because your coach/dad who drove you made you late.
Please Tell Me Someone Set Her Straight
Unlike cooking, baking is a science with precise measurements, timing, and temperatures needed in order for your food to turn out properly.
I just hope she didn't actually try to double the time and start a fire.
It Took Two People To Make This Decision
Whether it was the tattoo artist's fault or the client's, they should both be ashamed of this one.
This man now has to walk around with this on his body forever, and the artist has to live with knowing he put it there.
I Would Like To Go To This Garage Sale
Mock this horribly spelled sign all you want, but I have never been more enticed by a garage sale.
There's either the greatest collection of items ever or the worst. Either way, I'd show up.
I Bet He Feels Dumb Now
Take a moment and put yourself in his shoes: you've spent at least an hour trying to perfectly cover your car in order to paint the wheels.
You post on the internet and someone immediately tells you there was an easier way.
Sharon, How Is This Debbie's Fault?
Facebook Marketplace is a great way to save a dollar by buying used items from people who live in your city or neighborhood.
However, you cannot tell your son he's getting the Xbox before even asking about it.
Please Stop Confusing Dumb People On The Internet!
Posting bad DIY advice on the internet sounds like fun and games since you believe everyone will understand that you're just kidding.
But there is some idiot out there who will try it.
"Tidy Milk" Is The Best Thing I've Ever Read
This entire post is a total disaster.
Not only did this person manage to horrifically mangle the term "lactose intolerant" but they also came up with the worst reference to breast milk I have ever seen.
Maybe Check Their Brain Too While You're At It
Perhaps this person really does have tinnitus.
But perhaps they should also be checked for brain function and perhaps also be put through a 3rd-grade spelling bee for good measure.
Try Looking A Little Harder, Buddy
I think this guy needs to start taking classes on what "synonyms" are and then also maybe take a course basic human sexuality.
Maybe they also need someone to vet their social posts before they put them online.
Corona Sales Are At An All-Time Low
Repeat after me: Corona beers have nothing to do with the current virus. Now repeat it a few more times.
On the bright side, I bet I can snag some bottles on sale soon.
Oh No... OH NO
One of the coolest things about traveling is that you get to learn about how people all over the world live and their customs.
Just make sure you know the difference between a bidet and a water fountain.
...And That's How Identities Get Stolen
Most people in this day and age know that you probably shouldn't give strangers your social security number, so scammers have to be clever in how they get the information.
On a different topic, what's your mother's maiden name?
Well, He Might Be A Veterinarian
He might really hate eating chicken, and he also might be a veterinarian.
But I don't see how those things would ever really correlate with each other unless he was also a vegetarian.
Perl Horber Was A Very Important Moment In History
I don't mean to disrespect this man's love for his country.
But I'm just saying that if you feel this passionate about a historical event, you could at least spell it right.
Funny He Would Compare It To Candy...
Jokes aside, having a PEZ dispenser in the grade school playground during recess was like being the elite dealer of the yard.
You held all the power while the other kids begged for just one PEZ candy.
Some Words Are Just Tricky
You might be feeling stupid after typing "quasont" into Google but one thing you can feel good about is the fact that Google knew what you were talking about.
Clearly you aren't the first idiot to google it.
Under The Sea
When the experts told everyone that we should wear masks in public in order to protect ourselves, this is not what they meant.
They didn't mean any old mask (or snorkel) that you found buried in your basement.
Put It IN The Rice
When someone tells you to put your computer in rice after you spill a cup of tea, they're not suggesting you cover it with a package of microwavable minute-rice that you brought as part of your lunch.
Someone should tell them it's not going to work.
This is why you should always have someone else look at your design before you hit "Send to printer."
You took your engagement announced and turned it into something dirty all because you didn't realize your design didn't make sense.
She Had All The Right Koalifications
It was still a nice deed but we can only imagine her disappointment when instead of a real koala bear, she got sent one of those little stuffed ones along with a certificate.
This is disappointing.
Taking The Hard Way Out
Okay, we get that you put the coffee grounds in the wrong container, resulting in you having to put the tea in the wrong container, but why make it permanent?
There was no critical thinking involved here.
Chicken Or Beef Flavored?
Sure, Roman numerals manage to sneak their way into our everyday lives sometimes.
But lunchtime usually isn't the prime time of day that people would think they'd come into play.
Just Wait Until He Finds Out About Televisions
If you think that is a crazy concept, just wait until this person finds out about televisions or even phone calls.
It's going to be like a whole new world for them.
A Questionable Marketing Slogan
Momma didn't raise no quitter, but she did raise an obedient child.
If anyone asks, we'll be sitting at home, following instructions, and doing exactly as this shirt told us to do.
Just Let It Happen
They're going to be disappointed when they go to get the photos printed from their camera and the photo lab gives them back an envelope full of close up, blurry shots of their eyeball.
But it's a lesson they have to learn.
That's Enough Of A Deterrent
A fence is really more of a mental deterrent than a physical one anyway, right?
Anyone who was looking to come into your backyard will see the one large piece and find a new fence to jump.
Looks Like Someone Was Out To Lunch
Someone probably was actually out to lunch at the time that they were supposed to be putting locations on this graphic.
At least 3 mystery places are set up to have good weather this week!
"So How Was Your Day At Work Honey?"
At this point, he would probably rather these men just let the rope go and accept his defeat.
Because there's no coming back from the embarrassment of whatever is going on here.
This Could Have Been Prevented
If you're old enough to own a car, you should be old enough to know that putting a dashboard decoration made of jelly on the inside of your car in the summer is not going to end well.
Never Walk Alone
If you're going to do something ridiculous in public, you might as well do it with another person so you have some moral support.
You want to take a piece of fruit for a walk? Phone a friend!
Always Wash Your Vegetables
We've always wondered who would need to make frequent use of the bulk load setting on their washing machine, and now all of our questions have been answered.
We've been washing our produce wrong this whole time...
Driving Shouldn't Be A Two Person Job
While a rearview mirror is an important part of driving (arguably, a crucial element), usually the driver is the one who would benefit the most from being able to see behind them.
He Has At Least One Regret In Life
It's hard to guess what he regrets more: buying such a small car, or thinking that he was going to be able to fit this extra long wooden beam inside that car.
This isn't going to happen.
No Giants Or Transport Trucks Allowed
Honestly, this looks like it would be too high up to even stop a transport truck.
So we're not sure what the person who installed the gate thought was going to happen here.
