You don't want to think anyone is truly dumb. People might misspeak or misunderstand things all the time, but that's no reason to assume the person is as dumb as they appear. A conversation explaining what they may have misheard or not understood is the best way to go...

...Until you read the following people's stories.


Reddit user, u/zbooloo, wanted to hear:

What's the dumbest thing someone said to you ?

Perhaps They Needed A Bit More Learning Good

Most often, the people telling you these incredibly dumb things seem to suffer from a lack of education. Maybe they didn't pay attention enough in geography class or perhaps they completely missed the point of the lesson when they were introduced to the concept that the Earth is round. Either way, we're here to enjoy the silliness.

Take A Gander At A Globe

I am from Spain and I once met a girl who came from USA for a school travel project.

She asked me "Why are people here so white? I mean, we are in South America."

I told her we are in Europe and she didn't believe me.

Things Go Round And Round And-

Watching a sunset on the ocean one day when a late teens person asked me why the ocean doesn't put the sun's fire out.

"Have You Ever Seen A Cat Penis?" - Troy Barnes

Cats are Girls, Dogs are Boys. And that they would inter-breed and their children would be cats and dogs by being girls and boys.

Person was very very very dumb.

MAP. Use A MAP.

Someone in my world geography class once asked me if Cuba was Japan.

Sometimes You Can Forgive The Person Speaking To You

There may be times when you have to take into account the person speaking to you. For example, some of the dumbest things you've ever heard could be coming from children, still trying to figure the world out. Doesn't make it any less dumb, but at least you've considered it.

There's Not Enough Math In The World To Explain To You Why You're Wrong

I sat next to a girl in bio who got 40% on our first test. She seemed quite pleased and said that now she only needed to get 40% again to have an average of 80%.

You Want That Flashlight To Kill Us All??

We were on in a summercamp, and when i opened a flashlight during a storm (it was also night) he started yelling at me to shut it off because, apparently, light attracts lightning...

Here's How Words Work...

You become a teenager once you get your period.

Tried pointing out to my friend that the word is made up of the words "teen" and "age", as in thirTEEN , fourTEEN..etc. and that also males would never be teenagers if that was the case, but she was adamant about it.

Of Course, Sometimes It's Simple Stupidity

While a lack of education or being a kid can be excused, maybe even forgiveable, it's the adults, the fully grown adult humans, who utter the stupid nonsense that can really rock your brain and make you go, "You're allowed to be part of our society?"

Sorry Your Parents Suck

The TA for one of my classes in college said his parents didn't let him watch Veggie Tales as a kid because "vegetables aren't supposed to have souls."

Someone Should Take Away Your Keys

"If I got into a car accident I'd have a greater chance of living if I went through the window than I would if I was wearing my seatbelt"

If you live on this earth and you're fortunate enough to form long-lasting relationships with different people, chances are you'll know the pain of heartbreak. It's an unavoidable fact of life.

We are not guaranteed to stay with one person forever, as we were reminded once Redditor disturbance of mirrors asked the online community,

"People whose long-term relationship faded, what was the final straw that made you realize it was time to call it a day?"

There is always that "one." There is always going to be that person.

That person who you will always remember. And when they are the one who you regret losing most... they are the ghost that will haunt you forever.

I have a few escapees. I'll never know how it would've turned out. But that is part of why I'm haunted. I need to discuss....

Redditor u/AssistantNo1733 wanted to discuss all the times we've lost in love by asking:

Who's the one who got away?
