I can't anymore, I just can't. Sometimes I feel like I want to turn my ears over to God and say..."I'm done... thanks."

I just can't believe what I'm hearing when among company, or listening to the news. I can't tell if society is crazy, dumb, naive or all of the above.

Too often I'm truly left speechless by the things that fall out of the mouths of others. Either education has fallen to the bowels of life or the human brain has deteriorated through time.

I just always want to ask... "Do you hear you?" Maybe I'm the crazy one.

Redditor u/PrettyRefrigerator83 wanted everyone to share some of the things our ears I've heard that left us... speechless by asking:

What's the dumbest thing you've ever heard someone say?

I've had to stop watching CNN because they keep slipping in comments by Marjorie Taylor Greene and I'm sorry but that woman, I am stunned, STUNNED by what she says.

Oh Birdy!

"Watching an old movie and a bird comes on the screen. 'I didn't think birds were invented back then.' Literally the dumbest thing I've ever heard and not sure it will ever be topped."

Colors...

"When I was a little kid my older sister told me color didn't exist until Wizard of Oz came out and that's why everything before then is in black and white. I was so confused about how everyone was able to start seeing color. Then Pleasantville came out and I love that movie so much because it brought to life a question I had pondered for years."

And H40?

"College level chemistry. Legit asked in front of everyone what H20 was. Teacher laughed a bit until she saw his embarrassment."

- Yogurt_Slinger_

"H20 is a kinda okay Halloween movie that was considered canon for a while. Was made 20 years after the original and had Jamie Lee Curtis back playing Laurie Strode using a different name."

- Tempestw0lf

It was Me...

"I'll fess up. Once I was searching for a word to describe a length of time and I finally gave up and said 'a half a fortnight'."

- theshizzler

"If I get a free reward anytime in the next 12th of a year I think I might give it to one of the commenters on this. Laughing for a solid 50,000 milliseconds is nice."

- YHDiamond

For Queen...

"England shouldn't play in Euro 2020. They're not in Europe." Wow, just wow."

"Is this saltwater?" We were at the beach. Swimming in the ocean."

I can't stomach it...

"Omg I have been waiting for this question. My boyfriend who, in general is a smart man with common sense. But today he told me humans have 2 stomaches. Apparently, in his mind, the small intestine is 1 stomach and the colon is another. We even had a disagreement about it. So if you are reading this my beautiful idiot I posted your shame bahahaha..."

A 12 Inch

"Way back, I stopped at a Togo's to get a 12-inch sandwich to split with my wife. Asked for half without olives (I don't like them). The young blonde sandwich maker: "Do you want half with olives or half without?" Uhhh... that's the same..."

- RealisticDelusions77

"I could see why they might be clarifying tho. The general public, especially in fast food or retail, can be stupid. Sort of a "just to make sure I heard you right so you won't yell at me later" kinda moment."

- GodsGenome

In Space

"A woman once asked me if Mars could be classed as a country."

- Mckenzie98

"What 😂? Ah yes, we have so many countries with diverse cultures on our planet. Romania, Scotland, Canada and Mars are the first ones to come to mind."

- PrettyRefrigerator83

Can we send some of these people to Mars? Earth is really stressing me out. And humans, well I give up on y'all. Please keep reading people, and not about Kardashians, read about science, and philosophy, etc.

All of us have fears which some might call irrational.

Up to and including ghosts, witches, monsters.

But more often than not, reality can be far scarier than the supernatural.

And there are very few people indeed who don't have a memory of a moment when they were truly and genuinely scared.

And not by an otherworldly encounter, but by things that could quite literally happen to anyone.

Redditor GodhimselfUwU was curious to hear the scariest experiences people have lived through, leading them to ask:

"What’s the scariest non-supernatural thing that ever happened to you?"

Having to work for a living is hard work.

Some jobs come with difficulty and two extra sides of stress.

So the last thing people need is unwarranted hate.

I'm so glad I work from home. Writing alone.

I have issues with me, but that I can deal with.

I do hate internet issues.

But that is warranted.

Redditor PM_ME_URFOOD wanted to talk about the jobs where a ridiculous amount of vitriol is all part of a days work. They asked:

"What profession gets an unjustified amount of hate?"

People Explain Which Items In Life Should Always Be Free

Short of having a shopping addiction, no one actually likes spending money on stuff.

Why would you ever willingly give it away? It's your money!

Which might be why it feels so bad when you have to spend money of something that should be free from the beginning. People/ corporations are going to chase that cheddar, though, so there's little you can do besides complain, which frankly might be the best thing the internet is for.

The worst part of having breasts is Florida.

I didn't even say large breasts. Just breasts, any breasts. Florida and breasts are mortal enemies sworn to battle one another into oblivion until the end of days.
