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.

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."

It's highly believed that it is important to learn history as a means to improve our future.

What is often overlooked is that what is taught in history class is going to be very different depending on where you went to school.

And this isn't just internationally, even different regions of the United states will likely have very different lessons on American history.

This frequently results in our learning fascinating, heartbreaking and horrifying historical facts which our middle or high school history teachers neglected to teach us.

Redditor Acherontia_atropos91 was curious to learn things people either wished they had learned, or believe they should have learned, in their school history class, leading them to ask:

What isn’t taught in history class but should be?

So apparently we are in the endemic phase of this nonsense.

We have light at the end of the tunnel.

So what now?

Where do we go from here?

Normal seems like an outdated word.

How do we get back to normal though?

Is it even possible?

What are reaching back to?

Those were the days.

If only we could bring them back.

What do you believe?

Is there a GOD in the sky?

Is he guiding us and helping us?

Life is really hard. Why is that is a big entity is up there loving us?

Atheists have taken a lot of heat for what feels like shunning GOD.

What if they've been right all along?

Maybe let's take a listen and see what they really think.

Redditor __Jacob______ wanted to hear from the people who don't really believe all that "God" stuff. They asked:

"Atheists, what do you believe in?"

The list of what irritates me is endless.

I mean... breathing too loud or dust can set me off.

I'm a bit unstable, yes.

But I'm not alone.

So let's discuss.
