Stem Cells

Stem cell science is an area of science not many people might be familiar with, and we can forgive that. Essentially, stem cells provide new cells for the body and replace cells that were lost. There’s a lot more to it than that, but that’s a pretty basic definition.

This poster doesn’t know what stem cells are, which again, is fine. What is not fine, however, is automatically deciding that because they don’t know what they are, they are against stem cells. Fear of the unknown is reasonable, but not to this extent. How can a person decide they are against something without knowing what it is?

Flat Earth Family

People fall out with their family members and friends all the time. It can be pretty sad to see loved ones grow apart. Sometimes the disagreement is warranted, other times it is just ridiculous. This post falls under the latter, for sure.

This post tells us that the poster couldn’t stay married to their wife or in contact with their children because they refused to see the truth about the “Flat Earth.” Because of this, they were spending their Christmas alone. We can’t imagine losing a loved one over something so bizarre.

Flat Earth Pilot

This next post follows on with the flat earth theme, and unlike the last one, which was a little bit sad, this one is just hilarious. This poster claims that they recently ran into an acquaintance who happened to be a pilot. Their pilot acquaintance then proceeded to let them in on a little secret.

Now you can believe the post, or call them a liar, but they claim that pilots must take an oath never to reveal the secret of the earth’s correct shape. Wow, we cannot believe this secret never came out before now! This is amazing stuff.

CGI Expert for NASA

This next post is—yes, you guessed it—another one about the flat earthers! This person claims they were a CGI expert for NASA, which sounds like the coolest job ever. Now, they are afraid that the government is going to come after them.

Why are the government coming after them? Because they are going to reveal proof that the earth is flat. Even better, they claim they were stationed on the sun for 11 years. Surely this is a joke. It has to be a joke, right? Right?

Libraries

Maybe if more people knew about the subject of this particular post, the rest of these posts would not have happened. Libraries are truly underrated institutions nowadays. Think about it—there are thousands of books on display for people to pick and choose from, and we don’t have to pay a single cent.

Libraries are cool, and they’re probably still popular for young and old people alike. But maybe they would attract more tech-savvy folk if they promoted themselves as a book subscription on par with Netflix or Spotify. It might really take something that silly.

The Titanic

This is for sure one of our favorite bizarre posts of all time. Everyone knows the film Titanic, which was about the tragic sinking of the Titanic in 1912. One thing we would also have assumed everyone knew about the Titanic sinking, or even the film Titanic, was the name of the ship.

Asking for the name of the boat from Titanic is just jaw-dropping. We really hope they just had a brain fart, a moment of forgetfulness. We also really, really hope they know that they based the film on a true historical event…

YouTube

YouTube is easily one of the most popular websites of all time. If a person wants to watch a video of some sort, they’ll turn to YouTube. If a person has a video they want to upload to the internet for others to watch, chances are, they’ll post it on YouTube.

It’s crazy to think that there are people out there who still don’t understand how YouTube works. This poster assumed that YouTube comes out to hundreds of millions of people every day to film their videos and upload them to the website. We really can’t process this…

Ice in a Bottle

Yet again, we have another person asking the questions we are all afraid to ask. How does ice get inside a plastic bottle, when the hole in the bottle is so small? This is a true scientific mystery. Can anyone answer?

Luckily for this poster, we just might have the answer. Ice, as it turns out, is simply frozen water. Our education system badly needs to be reformed if there are people out there who don’t know how to get ice (frozen water) in a bottle…

Sugar Daddy?

This post is a bit of a wild ride, and we are still trying to figure out exactly what is going on here. What starts off looking like a post honoring a deceased boyfriend turns out to be… a bit more complicated than that.

He was actually her sugar daddy, and she didn’t like him very much. She was living a double life the whole time she was with him, apparently. And it sounds like his ghost has been haunting her? We have a lot of questions, but honestly, we’re not sure we want to know any more about this extremely toxic relationship post.

Vaccines

One of the worst things about social media is the staggering number of people who use ridiculous points to make arguments, and then stand by their points because they’re actually too stupid to argue against. This is one of those posts.

We have to agree with him—eating a vaccine could kill you. What we like most about this post is someone using this logic against the poster in the comments with the comparison to broccoli. We hope the original poster proceeded to see their own illogic after this.

Tampons

It’s kind of crazy how many people get up in arms about menstruation and female hygiene products. It is a normal bodily function and yet it still manages to offend so many people… including this woman below, who just wishes the whole topic could be kept hush-hush.

The fact that this woman is reacting to a positive post about free products for school students is probably the worst aspect of this. All because she finds a picture of a tampon offensive. We really don’t understand this point of view, no matter how hard we try.

Sanding Tires

It’s important to take good care of your car. Simply solved problems can pop up if we don’t monitor things like the car’s brakes, tire pressure, and engine oil. Even the best cars will have problems from time to time.

This, though? This is bad. This is something that we definitely don’t recommend. We are almost certain this is a joke, but there is always the possibility a naïve person could see this post and decide they, too, like this look. Take care of your vehicle – this is not how your car tires should look.

Breast milk

Looks like we have another person who skipped their high school biology classes. There are a lot of people out there who have a strange opposition to the concept of breastfeeding, mostly because they just don’t want to see it in public. This person, however, is opposed to breastfeeding because they think it is unnatural.

Unnatural? It is one of the most natural human processes! All mammals produce milk and we, as humans, are mammals, too. Human milk is just as real as cow milk, or goat’s milk. Please, just once, open a science book. Please.

Jay-Z and Beyonce

A few conspiracy theories have popped up in some of the posts we have already seen, but this post refers to one of the craziest theories out there. Constantly in the limelight, celebrities and social elites frequently feature in these theories.

A few years ago, theories spread like wildfire around online forums about different celebrities and elites, claiming they were members of the Illuminati, or Satanic Cults. According to this post, major celebrities Jay-Z and Beyonce are not only participants in these Satanic Rituals, but are cannibals, too. Scary stuff!

Leonardo

This is definitely one of our favorite posts. We are all of course familiar with legendary artist, inventor, sculptor, engineer, and architect, Leonardo da Vinci. This Renaissance-era genius is easily one of the most famous men of all time.

We have to be careful not to confuse this magnificent artist with award-winning actor of Titanic fame, Leonardo DiCaprio. This famous movie star is also the inspiration behind Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle, Leonardo (not – that’s after the artist, people!). We wish we could forgive this slip up, but it’s just too funny.

Tax Dollars

It is always reassuring to know that your tax dollars are going somewhere where they are of benefit to somebody. We pay our taxes to put in place better roads, good infrastructure, a sound education system, and to fix… the weather?

This post complains that rainwater has the audacity to form puddles at the end of their driveway, and the local government have done nothing about it, despite all the taxes they have paid. We would love to know exactly what it is this person wants their government to do. Stop it from raining?

Women Shaking Hands

Now, we can admit that we aren’t too familiar about the origins of the handshake, but regardless of how the act of handshaking started, we no longer shake hands to show that we’re not holding a weapon. It’s just become a gesture of greeting.

This poster claims that shaking hands with a woman feels patronizing, but we can guarantee the only patronizing thing we can see here is this post. It is truly baffling that there are not only people out there that think along these lines, but even worse, that there are people out there that feel the need to share those thoughts.

Healing Oils

One of the big issues with the internet nowadays is the rising number of self-proclaimed health experts. Anyone with access to the internet can self-diagnose themselves with any manner of illness or disease, which by no means should be a replacement for going to see a qualified professional.

Now, we aren’t sure why exactly this parent poured oil in their daughter’s ear, but we aren’t surprised, either, that it led to the daughter’s eardrum rupturing. Not only is this scary and extremely dangerous, but it’s also just plain bizarre. We can’t emphasize this enough—don’t take medical advice off the internet. It never leads anywhere good.
