Stupid Things People Do

Postby Vonum » Sat Jan 27, 2024 2:55 pm

This is a topic to discuss stupid things people do and NOT THINGS STUPID PEOPLE DO. Maybe it's funny or annoying? Either way, post it.

For example, people looking for a battery in the fridge (it's been done...)

My teacher, I remember, used a calculator for '18x0' and I thought 'Mate...'

Believing without question what a guy with a funny looking hat says about a being many believe in but none have seen, to the point that they scare their children into believing the same thing or else they'll go to hell (this is basically child abuse).

Part of becoming a truly well rounded human is at least considering the possibility that the rabbi, preacher, imam or priest may be lying to you, or may just be wrong and not realize it.

When you accidentally ran over that Uzbek family of 6 while driving through Asheville, NC on September 10, 2001.

Oh, I thought everybody has done this silly cringey thing on Patton Avenue, Asheville, NC. Bro, and then the moment when the local police asks you, "Sir, have you been drinking?" So stupid.

Opening the fridge or a press expecting something new to have appeared, even though you checked an hour ago and nothing has changed.

No, Massachusetts is definitely worse. I'm less familiar with Florida and Arizona, so it's hard to give an informed opinion on that, but Mass is definitely worse than Appalachia.

It's like they think the Lucky Charms leprechaun jumped out of the box, ran to the store and came back with danishes to put in the fridge while they weren't looking.
The alternate official name is Tír na nÓg. Elves, leprechauns, dragons, and a bunch of other fictional creatures are real. The nation name is technically "Adharcáilí," (pronounced "ay-er-KOH-li") with accents over the third A and second I. However, Nationstates doesn't allow accents in nation names, so that's why I don't have them in the nation name. If you would like to refer to Adharcáilí correctly though, use the accents.
