Things That Matter

People Are Sharing The Most Stupid Things They’ve Ever Heard

People say a lot of things. You’ve probably been guilty of it, too: telling an exaggerated story to seem cool on a first date or citing a meme like a scientific article. Sometimes we just fumble our words, or something gets lost in translation—pero no hay pedo, it happens to everyone (communication is hard, tbh). Even still, occasionally we find ourselves in a truly shocking interaction, where someone shares a questionable idea or makes a bizarre statement that leaves us thinking . . . what just happened? The internet is teeming with these strange and disorienting tidbits, and we are totally into it.

When asked “What’s the dumbest thing someone has told you?” Reddit users responded accordingly:

This person had too much faith in the power of floppy disks, and also didn’t understand the concept of the internet. But it was probably the 90s, so we’ll let it slide.

“Someone once told me they saved the Internet on a floppy disk. They actually saved their dialup connection shortcut but they truly were convinced that it contained the whole Internet.” –timetraveller1977

Someone who doesn’t know history very well thought one of the Beatles was the first president of the United States to be assassinated (the truth: the first US president to be assassinated was Abraham Lincoln, and no Beatle has ever been president).

“John Lennon was in fact the first president to be assassinated.” –Dame_Mort

This young person asked an existential (and actually kind of poetic) question about the relationship between the sun and the ocean.

This person must have REALLY sharp vision.

“That windshield wipers wear out faster in the middle, because that’s the part you look through the most often, as if your sight is an energy beam that degrades the rubber or something.” –Habaneroe12

This woman didn’t quite comprehend the concept of a tire.

“My ex wife (wife at the time) came home late, said she had a flat tire and that her and her girlfriend were able to put the spare on (I taught her that) then she said there was something she didn’t understand. She said she saw a screw in the tire and wanted to know that if the screw was in the top of the tire, why was the bottom flat.” –Tool_Time_Tim

This interaction speaks for itself (smh).

“Her: I think the law that requires you to wear a seatbelt is sooooo stupid. My body, my choice.

Me: Well what about your five-year-old son? You wouldn’t want to hurt him if he was riding with you, right?

Her: (shrugs) When it’s your time to go, it’s your time to go.

Me: Really? That’s how you feel about that? I mean…why even look before crossing the street, if ‘When it’s your time to go, it’s your time to go’?

Her: Actually, I usually don’t look when I cross the street.

Edit: She is under 30, but already has terrible knees. Why? Get ready…she was hit by a car in her teens while she was crossing the street. –Gween_Waynjuh

This person might not have gotten enough Parental Guidance…

“My step sister told me we should see the PG13 movie because PG meant ‘pretty good.’” –itti-bitti-kitti

This person may not know how to count (and may want to study A LOT before trying to complete the math section).

“Friend in high school told me he didn’t take the SAT because he heard it’s easier the second time.” –ImReallySorryMom

This person might have skipped biology too many times in high school.

This person really, really needs a geography lesson. And a social studies lesson. And a critical thinking lesson.

“I was teaching about hurricanes shortly after Christmas break a few years ago and when I brought up the Caribbean Sea, I asked if anyone went there over their break. A couple of hands went up, and one boy shouted out ‘yo, we went to Fake Mexico, and nobody even spoke Mexican.’

When I asked him what he meant by Fake Mexico and where he actually went, he said ‘Man, I don’t even know.’” – Gneissisnice

This person does not know much about etymology, but these words do sound similar (and we have to admit, the idea is kind of interesting):

“The root word of infant was ‘infinite’, therefore, infants have infinite wisdom.” –She_Likes_Cloth

This person needs a calendar (though it really shouldn’t be necessary).

“Someone once asked me and I quote, “When is 9/11 again?” I didn’t know if they were joking or not so I laughed. They were serious.” –OfficialAzif

This Man Posts A Video Highlighting Mexican ‘Avatar The Last Airbender’ Characters And It’s So Accurate

@nacho_libro_ / TikTok

Who here loves “Avatar The Last Airbender”? It is one show that has been around for so long that the fanbase can only grow. The show is a fantasy ride that will take you to some of the most imaginative places. However, one fan realized something no one else did: some of the characters are Mexicans. Here’s what he found.

Roku

Roku, a.k.a. “El Espiritu,” is one of the Mexicanos rocking it in the Fire Nation. Roku’s memory served as a guiding force for Aang along his long and storied journey. It is like that one compa you have who is always able to help you out of a jam. You never know how he will do it but he always does.

Sokka

You might know Sokka as the defacto leader of the Water Nation for a time. When he was younger, Sokka wanted to join his father in the war. He tried his best and left with all of the men to join the fight. However, he was too young to fight and was sent back but was the oldest male and became the leader of the tribe. Much like that primo we all have who is the oldest of the primos and teaches us everything. Where would we be without that primo?

Zuko

Zuko was born into the royal family of the Fire Nation. The prince abdicated his throne and lived in exile. For years, Zuko tried his best to catch the long-lost Avatar to get back into his kingdom. We all know that one friend that is trying to make up for something. At the end of the day, he is a good dude but he just has some things that he has to work out.

“Avatar the Last Airbender” fans are asking for more.

Credit: @nacho_libro_ / TikTok

There are so many more people that can be made into Mexican airbenders. The first three are already a success for the TikTok user with more than 234,000 views. Fans want more and it just seems like the perfect time to create more.

And it wasn’t just the setup.

The TikTok user came through with his joke. Not only was the haircut so on point, he included a bunch of easter eggs. One of them was the América jersey that left some viewers screaming. Watch the video here and enjoy.

Julio Torres Gives Us An Update On What He And His Shapes Have Been Up To In Quarantine

Julio Torres Gives Us An Update On What He And His Shapes Have Been Up To In Quarantine

Paper / YouTube

Julio Torres is one of our favorite comedians. We first learned about him when he started to share his unique comedy on “The Late Show starring Jimmy Fallon.” Torres’s delivery is what gives him comedy that extra punch.

“I am Julio and this is what my shapes and I have been doing during the quarantine.”

Like all of us regular people, Julio Torres has been in quarantine to combat COVID-19. His quarantine included him being stuck with people he thought he knew well. Fortunately, Torres gave a little video to Paper Magazine to let us all know how he is doing in quarantine and what he and his shapes have been up to since the quarantine started.

The one shape that has been doing the most is Krisha.

Yes. That Krisha. According to Torres, she has really gone wild since she was forced into a quarantine. Not in a good or bad way. She is just really doing the most and it is all catching up with her. But don’t worry. Krisha is still filled with confidence. She has an OnlyFans page and is supposed to be donating the proceeds to charity. However, we are still in the dark about the charity.

“Krisha, you know, Krisha, true to her Scorpio nature, has been… I mean, I don’t want to generalize on all Scorpios, but she’s been waking up at around 2 p.m. and then being awake for a little bit,” Torres says. “Then taking a nap. Then waking up again and then taking another nap from 10 p.m. to 4 a.m. Then waking up again and going to bed for good at 5 in the morning. She hasn’t been removing her blue contacts lenses the whole time, which is causing her this infection I think. At first we thought that it was something serious but it was just an eye infection caused by her not moving her blue contact lenses which I didn’t even know that she wore till I was quarantined with her.”

To be fair, we all assumed a lot about Krisha when we saw her in the HBO special.

As for her love life, well, let’s just say that Krisha is not where she wants to be. Who would have expected that being in quarantine would be so detrimental to your love life? Seems Krisha might be the only person who didn’t realize that she would be lonelier than normal at this time.

“She has been DM’ing up a storm just like flirting all day, which is great, but then when they don’t respond quickly enough,” Torres says. “I can tell when her suitors are not responding quick enough because she’ll just like throw her phone. Then she’ll look at me and goes, ‘What?!’ So, that’s what Krisha’s been up to.”
