You know how it goes: you're getting ready to shave, all lathered up and about to take that first razor swipe, when you see a sign saying not to use the water because it is literal poison, and also you have the best abs on the entire planet.

We've all been there, right?


No?

Okay maybe not, but that's what happened to extremely hot actor Sam Claflin. And the photographic proof of the bizarre situation has inadvertently taken the internet's thirst to a code red.

Claflin is the 33-year-old actor you may remember from The Hunger Games films, in which he played the character of Finnick, as well as the BBC series Peaky Blinderswhere he plays real life villain fascist and Nazi sumpathizer Oswald Mosleyand the most recent remake of Charlie's Angels.

He is also extremely hot.

He was shaving the other day, as one does, when he came across a sign posted on the sink reading:

" Do not use the tap water – there is anti freeze in the water lines! Use the hand sanitizer provided."

Ominous!

WTF, right? Why is there antifreeze in the water? Is Sam Claflin shaving at a Superfund site?

So, Sam did what any normal person would do in this day and age: posted a photo of the bizarre notice to Instagram.

And absolutely nobody cared...

...about the antifreeze that is, because HOLY ABS GOOD LORD SWEET MERCY WOWOWOWOWOW *drools*

Claflin's post quickly racked up hundreds of thousands of likes and scores of comments.

Not one of which pertained to the odd and possibly dangerous subject at hand.

It was just straight-up, pure, uncut, unadulterated, unfettered THIRST.

And who can blame them?

Who can reasonably be expected to FOCUS on the problem at hand when those delicious abs are staring them in the face? Claflin has no one to blame but himself.

Judgment for the defendants.

Even some of Claflin's celebrity friends were no match for this ab-solutely ab-ominable-in-a-good-way ab-undance of... well, abs.

But perhaps the true measure of the power of Claflin's abs was the fact that Razor company Gillette had to profess its thirst, too.

So, there you have it folks: if you have abs and you're going to post something to Instagram pertaining to a possible threat to your life, make sure you put on a shirt first.

Oh the beginning of the interwebs.

We really thought it wouldn't be much of a fuss.

We'll never know.

Computers rule the world now.

The internet is God.

Let's see where we are in another twenty years.

Those were the days.

People Debate The Worst Ways Someone Can Die

I fear death.

I wake up in cold sweats dreaming about it.

I think about it in my waking hours.

It's an obsession and clearly, I'm not alone.

But there are more preferred ways to exit.

All we can do is hope to be lucky enough to skip the mercilessly awful.

Please just let me go quick and in my sleep.

However, others with a different perspective might romanticize the things that are otherwise commonplace ideas and concepts for US citizens, like going to a diner or riding the school bus.
