People might argue there are no such things as stupid questions.

If that was common knowledge, it would prevent inquisitive minds from asking anything for fear they may be judged.


There are exceptions, of course.

And as much as there are people who ask ridiculous questions, there are those who make ludicrous declarations about things they know nothing of.

Curious to hear more examples about the things people say or ask without using brain power, Redditor JadoreB*otyNoir asked:

"What's the dumbest thing someone has ever said to you that made you lose respect for them?"

Are people really this clueless? Or are they just extremely unkind. You be the judge.

About Astrology

"Something along the lines of 'If you're a cancer, don't raise your voice against me. I'm a leo and I can make you cry in one sentence.'"

"I mean believe what you want but if you believe in Something so much you need to more or less insult people.. thats a bit too much for me."

Living Recklessly

"'Not my fault I want to live my life.' My old room mate's wife as she justified cheating on her husband who has to stay at home with the kids."

Just One Drink

"I met someone recently and he knows I'm sober."

"He asked me to meet him at a bar and have some drinks. I told him I don't drink anymore."

"He told me just once is fine."

"No, dear, people who are sober can't get away with 'just once.' Would he tell a recovering addict that just once is okay? Good god."

Arrogant Coward

Lasting Insult

"I had really sh**ty teeth as a kid. My best friend at the time once said to me, 'you remind me of the orcs from the Lord of the Rings!' Then she turns to her dad and asks, 'Dad, doesn't kazoologist look like an orc?' I haven't spoken to her in almost four years now. I'm much better off without her."

When there's no vacancy upstairs in people's heads, they might say the following:

An Impossible Surgery

"Someone in my office said that I should have my sinuses removed."

"Say what? I said. How the f'k do you remove an open space."

Rainbow Stroke

"I worked at a paint store mixing paint from 14-19, a lady asked for rainbow paint. Like, with a single brush stroke it makes a rainbow."

Reason For A Breakup

"Had a boyfriend who didn't believe that dinosaurs were real. Thought it was all either fake or misinterpreted fossils. We broke up soon after."

Real Wizards Among Us

"I had a girlfriend who thought Criss Angel could actually do magic. Like bend the laws of physics. Criss Angel released a video showing how he does one of his levitations. When I showed her it she said 'He just released that so the CIA wouldn't abduct him and experiment on him.' She's no longer my girlfriend."

These are majorly inexcusable offenses.

What The Hack?

"Among many other things, he told me about a 'life hack' (his words) where you go into the store, grab a sandwich from the deli, and leave without paying for it... because then it doesn't cost any money."

"It's not petty theft. It's a life hack."

Unwarranted Punishment

"A girl I knew said that she keyed another car, because the driver parked too close to her car in the car park."

"I hate people who purposely vandalise other people's property. I blocked and deleted her contact details the same day."

Deserving Of Cancer

"My ex friend once told me that maybe I deserve to have cancer because my life is too good as he thought..."

The Costume

"They said their KKK Halloween costume wasn't problematic because no one they knew was offended by it."

All-is_void

Sadly, it only takes one thoughtless comment from someone to be seen as dim-witted.

While people saying they don't believe dinosaurs ever existed and that fossils were fake may raise an eyebrow, there are more inexcusable offenses.

Like when someone thinks a person is deserving of cancer.

Those are the kinds of remarks that one Redditor kindly put as a "punchable phrase."

Positive emotions are high among people in the blossoming phase of relationships.

Everything seems more romanticized for people in love due to the amorous joy in their hearts–which also influences their desire to frequently get it on under the sheets–or any other daring location in the heat of the moment.

But for those who've declared "'til death do us part," devoted couples may find that they are not always on the same wavelength sexually compared to when they first met.

There are a number of things people partake in spite of the known possible ramifications they have on their health and safety.

Up to and including smoking, bungee-jumping, recreational drug use, or simply bike riding without a helmet.

Indeed, even though they know that doing any or all of these things could possibly lead to their death, they do it anyway.

Sadly, even though many people go out of their way to avoid doing these things for that very reason, that still doesn't mean they keep themselves completely out of danger.

Sadly, there are a surprisingly large number of things that lead to an even more surprising number of deaths each year.

Frighteningly, these are things that the majority of the world's population does on an almost daily basis.

When Americans visit a foreign country, they tend to notice immediate cultural differences from the minute they step off the plane.

Unique bathroom designs, how you might have to be more specific when ordering coffee in Australia, how many businesses in Spain tend to shut down for a few hours to take a siesta.

Needless to say, this goes both ways, as when people from all over the world visit the United States, they tend to be surprised and amazed by a number of things.

Ranging from the amusing, such as portion sizes and ineffective tea brewing (at least for the Brits) to the truly baffling (HEALTHCARE).

We've all found ourselves annoyed by the ticks or habits of others.

Some of these are fairly common, such as chewing with your mouth open, cracking your knuckles, or whether or not they pronounce the "T" in often.

Some habits are a bit more unusual, though.

Only the people guilty of possessing these habits might not realize that they're unusual until they are told by someone else that practically no one, or literally no one, else does them.

It's an eye-opening, sometimes humiliating discovery.
