With the evolution of humanity also comes the evolution of invention.

From the invention of the wheel to to electric cars, there are countless inventions which have no doubt made the world a better place.

But are there some inventions which we might have been better off without?


Redditor DJWP137 was curious to hear which inventions the Reddit community thought may have done the world a disservice, leading them to ask:

"What, in your opinion, is the worst thing humans ever created?"

I've got nowhere to put anything!

"Fake pockets."- kibalev

Giphy

My kids couldn't grow up soon enough

"Caillou."- Cerinthus

Benefits absolutely no one

"Torture devices."

"All of them."

"A tool with no other purpose than to inflict misery is about as far from humanity as humanly possible."

"I’m referring to the definition of humanity which means 'humaneness or benevolence'."

"Not 'having to do with human kind'."- Willzyx_on_the_moon

"Chemical and biological weapons."- SuvenPan

Always remember to hold your breath when pumping gas.

"Leaded gasoline."

"It's believed that in the U.S. alone, leaded gasoline caused the loss of about 824,000,000 IQ points."- DeletedImmediately

Just round up the measly penny!

"Items that end in .99 cents."

"Pure evil!"- CarloTheGoat

One less step to damage your lungs!

"Pre-rolled and packaged cigarettes."

"In the 1950’s, a pack of cigarettes was just 25 cents."

"Cheap, convenient, and easily available, even to children."

"While a responsible store might not sell them to a ten year old, supermarket vending machines didn’t care."

"The public didn’t know much about their danger back then and ads even told the public about how Doctors loved to smoke, implying that smoking had the blessing of the medical establishment."- Sxzym

Hours wasted in front of a screen

"League of legends."- _Duckling04

"Social Media in some ways."

"Social media has had an amazing amount of influence, but for all the good that it does, it also creates a 'toxic mirror' effect."

"This is the concept of making people feel bad about themselves by constantly being exposed to information that would make them create negative opinions about themselves."

"The toxic mirror makes anything that isn’t physical, emotional, and mental perfection, ugly and bad for that person."

"Beyond the toxic mirror, many people use social media in ways that hurt the people around them."

"The manifestation of a social persona can often present the opportunity for a user to put out very public misinformation."

"This break from reality further muddies people’s ability to properly identify risk, putting them in harmful situations."

"The Internet is filled with trolls, stalkers, and bullies."

"These groups are allowed to run rampant, as people don’t have a lot of resources to ward against them."

"These individuals hide behind their Internet persona, making civil action against them extremely difficult."

"Cyberbullying, specifically, can cause great harm to people of all ages."- KnotKarma

They achieve nothing except making me feel bad about myself

"Credit scores and algorithms that value engagement over quality of content so that sh*tty provocative things which get 100s of hate responses and volatile comments are all anyone sees and thinks we're all the worst of humanity."

"It's like that South Park arc about the Danish trolls coming to fruition, a posts something to get a rise out of b who responds which makes c and d respond and so on."

"Only it's like all the internet is."

"A pyramid scheme of rage clicks."- renaaria

Only time will tell what else modern inventors have in store for us.

For better or worse.

I tend to avoid public bathrooms if I can help it. They are terrible places. Few are clean and I admit I am a bit of a clean freak. My beautiful bottom will not grace a dirty toilet seat, no thank you. I have standards.

I'm being only sort of serious. I've been in a pinch before. But have you ever seen a gas station bathroom that was utterly destroyed by the patron (or patrons) before you? It's a horrible sight. 0/10: Do not recommend.

Naturally, some crazy things happen in your local public restroom. We heard some stories after Redditor RuffNBoy asked the online community,

"What is the wackiest thing you've seen in a public restroom?"

People Break Down Which Behaviors Scream "I'm Not That Smart'

One should never be fooled by a first impression.

Certain people might behave in a way that is less than indicative of what they are actually like, and might prove to be far more impressive, or much less friendly, once you get to know them a little better.

However, sometimes people will behave in a certain way which leaves one unable to avoid making assumptions about people.

Namely, their intelligence.

Redditor sparklingshanaya was curious to hear what behavioral traits the Reddit community took as a sign of possessing a considerable lack of intelligence, leading them to ask:

"What are some behaviors that scream unintelligence?"

One of my favorite horror films ever is Black Christmas (1974). It's the perfect slasher film. It's scary. It's uncompromising. It's sordid. It's eerie. It leaves you with a horrible feeling in the pit of your stomach. It features some great acting, too! There are some powerhouse talents in it, including Olivia Hussey, Keir Dullea, Margot Kidder, and Andrea Martin.

But did you know that the film has been remade? It's been remade twice, as a matter of fact. The first remake, which was released in 2006, was so ridiculous. Not even Martin, who showed up in a glorified cameo in the role of a sorority house mother, could save it.

It was remade again in 2019 — this one bore few similarities to the films that came before it. One wondered why this one even had the same name, but there you have it.

Suffice it to say that the original Black Christmas is untouchable. But it is not the only film out there that should never have been remade. Far from it.

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

"What movie is so perfect that if it would remade, it would be a crime against humanity?"
