Do we give human beings too much credit sometimes…?

I’m beginning to think that the answer to that question is a huge YES.

Why? Because the more time I spend with people, the more I realize just how dumb they really are.

Hey, I’m not talking trash! Maybe a lot of people think I’m a dumb person…but I hope not…

Here are some pretty DUMB stories about our fellow humans from AskReddit users.

1. Ouch.

“My friend once told me he wasn’t too concerned about using birth control because everyone knows the girl can only get pregnant if they both c*m at the same time.

His GF was pregnant 3 months later.”

2. Can I open this?

“My sister panicked while on a plane and asked if she could open a window as she was feeling really hot.

The guy in the seats across from her lost it, it made his day.”

3. Brilliant.

“”If you could adopt a child from a third world country, which country would you choose and why?” “I would choose Alaska, because it’s really cold there.”

A member of the prom court being asked a random question on our school’s live news show that was being broadcasted out to every homeroom.”

4. But, why?

“A girl in my class asked why do farms exist if she gets her food from the supermarket.

The teacher had such a disappointed face and everyone looked at her and wondered how did she pass the all the way through the 8th grade.”

5. Mom needs help.

“My mom frantically called me one day and said she had seen a piece of the sun fall off while taking a picture of the sky.

She was incredibly adamant that it was indeed real and that the picture would prove it

It was just a glare.”

6. History buff.

“I knew a girl who said ‘what’s the big deal about Obama being elected president?

Our first black president was Martin Luther King.'”

7. That guy must be loaded.

“Y’all really gonna make me remember the time my coworker thought Willy Wonka was a real person and wondered how much money he was making on Nerds and Gobstoppers.”

8. Wait, it’s not?

“That Japan was the capital of Australia.”

9. Oh, boy…

“A customer came in today and apparently had a an excuse for not wearing a mask.

We offered curbside pickup for their safety and the safety of others.

They let us know that they work at a covid clinic, so they had “literally 0% chance of contracting it”.”

10. It’s not real!

“A few years ago leading up to the great American eclipse a coworker overheard us discussing it and said “Y’all don’t actually believe in that sh*t do you?”

I figured he misunderstood whatever we were talking about and thought we were talking about mysticism or something regarding the eclipse but no he followed up with “Don’t you know if the moon went into the sun it would melt, that’s why the eclipse can’t be real.”

I genuinely felt like humanity should probably start over from scratch after that.”

11. This guy…

“Co-worker at my last job during lunch:

Him: “The moon landings obviously didn’t happen”

Me: “Thats awkward I was bouncing lasers off the mirrors we left there at University.” (Physics Graduate)

Him after pausing: “Theres loads of ways they could have got there, aliens could have plonked them down”

Man literally believes in aliens but not the moon landings and is a manager at a large company.”

12. Good question!

“In 8th grade this girl, dead serious, asked, “how did people breathe before there was electricity?””

13. Sorry, wrong country.

“A few years ago I got a job offer in Japan and decided to take it. Some friends from my then office threw me a farewell party.

The girlfriend of one of my co-workers came along and told me that she’d always wanted to go to Japan and that her number one thing to do there would be to take a camel ride.

My co-worker and I just looked at her to see if she’d explain more— maybe there was a camel cafe she’d heard about or something.

But no, she just honestly thought camels were a common mode of transportation in Japan.”

Okay, now it’s your turn!

In the comments, please tell us about the dumbest thing you’ve ever heard another person say.

Thanks in advance!
