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.

"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

People Divulge Which Brands They Absolutely Swear By

Don't be alarmed: There are some terrible corporations out there (looking at you, Nestle) but there are also some great brands that are selling decent products.

I know, surprising, right? Maybe we've all just gotten used to brands selling things of questionable quality that when we stumble across something worthwhile it stuns us.

Hold on tight when you find a brand deserving of your loyalty!

People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor spwf asked the online community,

"What brand(s) do you swear by and why?"

You know what would be great?

If society could just stop with arbitrary dress codes. If you're not working with the public, why should you have to dress up so much? If you're a police officer, then it makes sense that you'd wear a uniform that identifies you as a police officer. If you're Ted from IT who sits in the backroom all day, I really don't see why you have to come in every day in a suit and tie.

Let's just toss them out, shall we?

"What should be socially acceptable but isn't?"

People Share Their Best 'F**k This, I'm Outta Here' Experiences

As much as many of us don't like to disrupt the status quo, there is only so much time a person can tolerate a miserable situation before things become so unbearable that they ultimately have to peace out.

For some people, it takes a while for them to reach a breaking point. Eventually, there comes a time when they realize their self-worth is more important than continuing to please others who don't appreciate them for the sake of keeping up with appearances.

As we enter into the summer months, people now have to decide whether or not they want their morning coffee to be hot or iced.

Lucky for them, it's delicious either way.

One could make an argument that foods that are equally delicious hot or cold are perhaps the best, or at least the most reliable.

And this can include foods which are not customarily sold both hot and cold (cold pizza anyone?).

Redditor NectarineOther4989 was curious to hear which foods people enjoy either hot or cold, leading them to ask:

"What is something that tastes good both hot and cold?"
