Sometimes the truth hides in plain sight. While we're all wandering around looking in difficult places, assuming all needs to be complex to work, some bozo is sailing to victory because he's thinking one step behind the rest of us.


This, in part, accounts for literally everything in the sky mall catalog you see on airplanes.

Who really needs a phone notification for when the toaster's done? It already physically spits the food out.

But some dingbat was willing to go the distance, and totally won in the process.

What ever happened to the Snuggie? I remember laughing at the mere existence of those sleeved blankets. Then I was joke-gifted one, and I fu**ing loved it.

Being Tech Savvy: The Kiss of Death

Being really bad at things like fixing iPads.

My dad and uncles need help with their tech stuff all the time, and they always come to me because my sister is "hopeless with that stuff".

She's not, but she's got them believing that.

Conspiracy theories are beliefs that there are covert powers that be changing the course of history for their own benefits. It's how we see the rise of QAnon conspiracies and people storming the capital.

Reddit, what are your creepy encounters with something that you are convinced was paranormal?

Not necessarily with women front and center as part of the conversation, unfortunately.
