Most of the time, the internet is a great place. It lets us connect with friends across the globe, shop online for anything we could possibly imagine, and even watch screaming goat videos! But every so often, our bubble is burst when we realize that sometimes the world wide web can be a dark place. Yes, anyone who has used social media will know that people can say... questionable things. And the people involved in the interactions below should have known when to stop. But since they didn't, we might as well laugh at the mess they created, right?
That's Berry Strange
What do you do when you're bored? Stick on a movie? Hit up your friends? Scroll through the internet? Everyone has their own way of dealing with boredom, but have you ever been so bored that you've decided to shave a strawberry? We're going to assume that very few people have actually done this, as it's not exactly a normal way to pass the time. Yes, this is berry strange.
Although we wouldn't do this ourselves, it is pretty intriguing to see what a strawberry looks like without its red skin and seeds. So, we guess we owe this person a thank you.
Not Your Average Pet
What's wrong with a dog or a cat, people? It seems as though more and more people are opting to buy unusual pets, and actor Nicolas Cage even bought a pet octopus a few years. And while this set him back a ridiculous $150,000, we have to say that an octopus seems pretty normal compared to this woman's pet leech. The last time we checked, your pet shouldn't have to feed off you to survive!
Although this woman tried to make her leech look cute and inviting with its pink bow, nothing could take away from the fact that this leech is a literal bloodsucker. This is giving us the creeps.
Please Let Him Pee in Private
We totally get that people love celebrities. They're marketed in such a way that makes them some of the most desirable and enigmatic people in the world, so it's no wonder that people spend their lives hoping to meet a celebrity in real life. But have you ever heard the phrase "never meet your heroes?" Well, that might be because, most of the time, your heroes are just regular people who just happen to have fancy jobs.
This Joaquin Phoenix super-fan was so intent on meeting him that they even followed him into a urinal to watch him pee. And judging by the photos they took of him, he didn't really appreciate it.
Justice for This Sandwich
There are some foods that can be eaten in various different ways. You know, like Oreos! Some people eat them whole, others twist them apart, and then there are some who dunk them in milk. But when this person posted this on social media, there's no doubt about the fact that they divided opinions over their strange sandwich-eating habits. Have you ever seen anything quite like it? Because we haven't.
Sure, we get the idea of saving a sandwich for later. We love knowing that we have a tasty sandwich to go back to! But eating in half like this? This is like sandwich sacrilege, and we can't even look at it anymore.
Hang On, Pump the Brakes
You probably don't need us to tell you that driving isn't easy. There's a reason why there's an age restriction on driving and why you need to pass a test before you're legally allowed to drive on your own! But this tweet just goes to show that maybe there should be tougher restrictions on who is and who isn't allowed on the road. And we can't help but think that this girl needs a few refresher lessons.
Using two feet while driving isn't exactly unusual, but what about using the opposite feet? Well, that just seems a little dangerous if you ask us. And surely that can't be very comfortable?
Let's be honest; social media is the ultimate communication device. Not only can you follow celebrities and friends you know in real life, but strangers can also turn into friends on this app. It's super easy to meet new people on social media, and most of the time, these interactions are wholesome and exciting. Other times, these interactions are downright creepy and could leave some people fearing for their safety.
Has anyone else got shivers down their spine? Nobody wants to have their picture taken, especially when they're taken in secret by someone who has quite clearly been following them.
She Wants to Be Prepared for What Exactly?
If you've ever been pregnant, you'll know that pregnancy cravings are no joke. It feels as though you need to eat or drink your craving immediately, and your brain won't focus on anything else until you have your cravings in your hands. Most pregnant women would happily shout and scream at anyone who stands in the way of them and their cravings - which is why we're not too surprised to see this tweet.
Although we appreciate that pregnancy cravings take over, what makes this tweet even more bizarre is the fact that this woman wasn't even pregnant when she asked about throwing a drink at the Starbucks baristas!
Too Soon, Bro
All is not fair in love and war. It's a tough world out there for singletons, which is why we appreciate that everyone has to shoot their shot in their unique ways. But there are some unwritten rules when it comes to shooting your shot, right? And asking if someone is single in response to a tweet of them burying their boyfriend is definitely breaking one of those unwritten rules.
This guy didn't even give her a chance to grieve before he decided to slide into her DMs, which just goes to show that he's definitely not the right guy for her.
Think Before You Tweet
Can we just take a moment to give these ladies a round of applause? It takes a lot for someone to beat an eating disorder, and it takes even more to share their brave story on social media. So, let's congratulate these two women for their amazing achievements! And while we're at it, let's tell them to block the guy who loves using a fire emoji a little too much.
How about thinking before you tweet? Some things are better left unsaid, and we have a feeling that they probably didn't appreciate that so-called "compliment" at that moment in time.
If you want to hold yourself accountable for something, the internet could be the best place for you. There are so many encouraging and motivational people online, and this is great if you want to lose weight or curb a dangerous habit. This guy decided to do that when he'd been cold turkey for four whole weeks, and he wanted to share his win with his friends and followers online!
And while the person who commented below tried to get into the supportive spirit, we don't think they offered what the original poster was looking for. He doesn't need a cheat day, after all.
Can We Ask Where You Went to Medical School?
You probably don't need us to tell you that everyone on the internet thinks they're an expert - especially in the medical realm! These people watch one episode of Grey's Anatomy and immediately think that they're the best doctor since McDreamy. And we guess that's why this person decided to share their "knowledge" about babies and mothers on social media. The only problem was that it was so far-fetched it was almost laughable!
If moms really did have a natural instinct to kill their babies, we would be living in a very different world. Humans aren't polar bears, after all. We don't kill and eat our young.
We Don't Even Know What to Say to This One
Demi Lovato is one of the most famous singers out there, and it's not hard to understand why. Not only does her music connect with so many people on a deeper level, but her personal experiences have also helped those struggling with their mental health. But we can't help but wonder if she knows how she's helping this person, too. After all, it's not every day you find someone who chews on a photo of you.
Actually, we're not sure if chewing on this photo is a compliment or an insult to Demi, so maybe it's best that she doesn't know what goes on in this house.
A Chew Toy for Humans, Not a Human Chew Toy
When you think about it, an adult chew toy sounds like a nifty idea. After all, life can be pretty stressful and uncomfortable sometimes, and having something to take your anxiety out on could work in a lot of people's favor. So, we actually thank the original poster for posing a very important question. Why don't they make chew toys for adult humans? Well, it might have something to do with the person who responded.
Although we appreciate honesty in this house, we think this woman should have kept this little nugget of information to herself. The original poster was talking about a chew toy for humans, not a human chew toy.
Time to Go to the ER
The beauty of the human brain is that most of us have a filter that stops us from doing stupid things. Sure, we get a stupid idea sometimes - but most of the time, our logic and reasoning scream for us to stop before things get out of hand. However, not everyone listens to this angel on their shoulder. Sometimes they flick the angel off and bring the devil closer.
We don't know why this person decided to drink the contents of a snow globe, but we have a feeling that they took a trip to the ER not long after they took their last gulp.
We Bet His Girlfriend's Real Happy
Nowadays, tattoos are incredibly common. And most of the time, people choose to ink their bodies in words and images that truly mean something to them. Of course, some would say that it's a little risky getting a girlfriend's face tattooed on your body - which might be why this guy decided not to do that. Instead, he tattooed the face of an internet influencer on his arm. And when another user poked fun at him, he came out on top.
While he won this internet battle, he might have another thing coming for him once his actual girlfriend sees the new ink.
Sometimes It Is
There are two kinds of people in this world; those who dream of having children and those who are pretty content with living their lives without them. And while we appreciate that everyone has their own opinions, it seems as though one woman didn't agree with the statement that "hating kids is not normal actually." And this commenter didn't just come up with her response out of the blue. She had previous experience.
You can be as nice as possible to kids, but that doesn't mean that they're going to be nice to you back. And this woman realized this for herself during her flight.
Clean Eating Gone Wrong
In today's day and age, more and more people are trying to eat clean and healthy. You can't log onto social media without seeing people meal prepping their chicken and veggies, and it seems as though everyone has their own personal recipe that works for them. However, we're a little worried about the health of this woman right now. But as we've not heard from her, we can assume that she has her head in the toilet.
Sure, you can eat raw steak and fish if you really want to, but medium-rare chicken? That's quite literally a recipe for disaster. We hope her stomach isn't struggling too badly.
Just Wondering - Do You Ask the Waiter if They're Atheist Before or After Appetizers?
Religion can bring so many people together, but it can also tear people apart. But at the end of the day, you should focus on your personal relationship with religion - and not focus on other people! But it seems as though this religious diner didn't get that memo. They decided to bypass the fact that their waiter was doing a great job and instead focused on the fact that they were an atheist.
While we get that everyone is entitled to their own beliefs, this waiter at least deserved a good tip, didn't they? Not paying their bill wasn't very religious of them.
Fight That Urge
We get it; people have urges. Some people have the urge to eat a whole bucket of ice cream, others have the urge to get a tattoo, and some people have the urge to skinny dip in the ocean. But it seems as though other people get the urge to start fires. Yes, we guess pyromaniacs are living everywhere - and this Stone Roses fan had to deal with one.
Although this guy probably thought he would be getting a kiss at the end of the day, he instead had to deal with the fact that his favorite band poster had gone up in flames. Poor guy.
A Crazy Crush
Love can make you do crazy things, and it's tough to have a crush in the world of social media. After all, it's super easy to see who they follow, who they interact with, and what their snap score is on Snapchat. And while some people can move on from these numbers without a care in the world, it seems there are others who want to put a little more research into their crush.
Not only did this person take a mental note of their crush's score, but they also took a physical note of it! Let's hope that their crush didn't see this tweet.
If you've ever watched the show Catfish, you'll know that what you see online isn't always what you get. Sometimes the people you meet behind a screen are totally different in real life, which is why it's not a great idea to get your online crush's name permanently etched into your skin before you've actually met them in person. But we get it; love is a powerful drug! And it can make you do crazy things.
Although this guy thought he was doing something super romantic when he got his online crush's username tattooed, he soon realized that she wasn't what he thought when she then deactivated her account. Ouch.
Should We Forgive Her?
Hands up if you did something that you regret when you were younger. There's a high chance that everyone has their hands up right now because we all did things we shouldn't. Whether you stole some money from your mom's purse or stayed out past your curfew, being a teenager was all about pushing boundaries and experimenting. But did you ever steal the phone of someone with cancer? Well, this person did.
Although we don't condone these actions, it seems as though this woman is now owning up to her mistakes. And the crying emojis make it seem as though she does genuinely regret it!
He Thought It Was a DIY Vaccine
Going to the doctor is a whole ordeal. You put all of your faith into this one person, hoping that they know exactly what's wrong with you and will cure you of your illness. But perhaps we've become a little too trusting. Or maybe they should keep us in the loop a little more? If this pharmacy tech had simply said, "Wait a second, I'll be back," this situation would have been avoided.
We don't know how this person managed to vaccinate themselves, but we can't help but wonder what's next. Will we be performing surgery on ourselves soon? We seriously hope not.
That Took a Very Weird Turn
Taylor Swift needs no introduction. As one of the most famous singers in the world, she's celebrated for her musical talent and her celebrity status. But it seems as though some people don't see her as a singing superstar. Instead, they see her as a walking egg protector. And this guy was quick to let the world know that Taylor's birthday meant the decline of egg production. Happy birthday, Taylor!
We have a feeling that Taylor would probably just have preferred a normal happy birthday message. After all, she doesn't seem too worried about the status of her eggs. So thanks, but no thanks.
Time for Jail
People have strong opinions on pizza. Some people believe that pineapple on pizza is criminal, others swear by a thick base, while there are others who don't like the crust. And while we believe that everyone is allowed to have their own pizza beliefs, surely this person just shouldn't eat pizza in the first place? Sure, the crust can be dry and crunchy, but it also forms a huge part of the pizza.
Of course, we agree that the tastiest part of the pizza is the top, but how can you waste the rest?! This person needs to go to pizza jail immediately.
Now This Is Alarming
If you're a good sleeper, spill your secrets! There's nothing more annoying than laying awake at night and tossing and turning until you eventually fall asleep. And for bad sleepers, the relief of actually getting some sleep can make or break the next day. So, we can totally understand why this guy's wife would be annoyed that her successful sleeper husband would put on unnecessary and annoying alarms throughout the night.
If he's not getting up until 6 am, why is he putting on alarms from 2 am? That just doesn't make sense, and we have a feeling he might be headed for divorce.
Not Exactly Tree-Mendous
We didn't think we'd ever need to say this, but can everyone please stop chewing on things that aren't meant to be chewed? And yes, bits of Fir lumber are in that "do not chew" category! But it seems as though this person didn't know that, which is why they decided to not only chew on bits of wood but also call out builders who use this wood to build houses.
While this was a great experiment to see that lumber is pretty soft, we don't think someone needed to chew it to find that out. That must have completely ruined their teeth. Their breath might smell nice, though.
Stuck in a Lie Spiral
Okay, we have to feel a little sorry for this person. We've all been in a situation where we've been caught up in our own lies, after all. Sometimes, it can be easier to simply carry on with your lies rather than embarrass yourself with the truth. And it seems as though that's exactly what this person did when they made up a fake girlfriend for a joke. Before too long, the lie had gotten out of hand.
You have to commend them for eventually coming out with the truth, right? They could have kept it going for years, so at least that's something. They did the right thing in the end.
Thanks, Language Expert
If you don't laugh, you'll cry, right? Yes, the internet can be a really silly place, especially as there are so many people online who want to gatekeep things for themselves. And while we applaud anyone who has watched anime to the point of being an expert in everything related to the characters and the storylines, nobody can be an expert in another person. And they definitely can't tell them what their first language is or isn't.
Although this person may watch anime, that doesn't mean that they automatically know when someone's first language is Japanese. But we guess this person didn't get that memo when they posted this online.
Getting Way Too Involved
We get it; celebrities are entertaining. Most people have their favorite celebrities, and they spend their lives devoted to them and their craft. But leave the celeb research to E! News and The Hollywood Reporter, okay? This guy obviously didn't get that memo and decided to do a deep dive into the intricacies of John Mulaney and Olivia Munn. On the one hand, we're slightly impressed. On the other, we're a little horrified.
We could spend days going through the specifics of this celebrity relationship web, but we're not going to do that. We've got better things to do with our lives, you know? Plus, it's a bit weird.
It's a Phase, Mom
Every child goes through phases, right? Some go through an emo stage, others go through a sporty phase, and then there are some who go through a phase of trying to kill their grandma, right? Erm, not quite. Although the internet is no stranger to jump-scare videos, they're normally made with the intention of giving the viewers a good laugh. In this guy's case, he went through a very different phase.
Although we're slightly horrified by his actions, it seems as though he's since come to realize that what he wanted to do was a little crazy. And acceptance is the first step to change, people!
We have so many questions. Firstly, who is mama ghost? And secondly, who only eats the white part of a watermelon? If we were to hazard a guess, we'd say that this person thought that the ghost of their mama brought them a plate full of just the white watermelon, but even that poses even more questions. But no matter what really happened here, we don't think we're going to be able to bypass this watermelon quirk.
The white part of a watermelon is arguably the worst part of a watermelon, but whatever float's this person's boat! At least the watermelon wouldn't be wasted if you lived with this person.
All Charged up
Anyone who has an Apple iPhone will know that once you're in, you're stuck. Switching from Android to Apple is easy, but switching back from Apple to Android? It's impossible. But this poses a bit of a problem when Apple chooses to release new phones and update existing processes every five minutes. Apple customers have no choice but to adapt to these changes, and some people just really don't like it.
This person wasn't afraid to go off on the fact that their charger was no longer working. And instead of saying that they were all fired up, we'd have to say that they were all charged up!
Stay Woke and Broke
It's no secret that university will clear out a person's bank account. Student loans quickly add up, and most people spend the next few decades paying them off. But it seems as though university doesn't just make you broke - it also makes you woke! Well, according to this person, anyway. Apparently, dying your hair a different color and experimenting with your clothes just isn't allowed anymore, especially if you want to become a teacher.
Sure, everyone can have their own opinion, but that's the whole point, isn't it? This girl decided to go to university and experiment with her style, and that was her choice! We think she looks dope.
All in the Family
They say that blood is thicker than water, which is why people will do anything to help out their family members. Sometimes, they'll even go to the extreme, like donating a much-needed kidney or even adopting their child and raising them as their own! That's what this woman did when her brother and sister-in-law needed help with their kid, and she didn't even think twice about it. That's sisterly love, right?
However, we can't help but think that this has caused all kinds of problems down the line. We don't even want to think about how awkward their family dinners are.
Please Mind Your Own Business
There's nothing quite like sharing a momentous achievement on social media and receiving compliments from friends, family, and complete strangers. This can help you feel extra proud of your achievements - especially if it's not something you could have done years ago. Because of this, we want to give a major round of applause to this woman, who ran an entire mile in under 10 minutes! What an achievement that was.
However, it seems as though the "body positive" commenter didn't quite understand the meaning of body positive when they wrote this. If this woman is working on a healthy body, she's nailed it!
When You Assume
You know what they say about assuming, right? In nicer terms, it makes you look silly. Sometimes, doing a little bit of research goes a long way. Or maybe just ask a few questions! But instead of doing that, this person immediately assumed that their small town in Texas was the home of some serious voter fraud. But we guess the bigger question is: why were they looking at their phone anyway?
This whole thing just goes to show that the internet isn't for everyone, and we can't help but think that this person was inundated with comments when they posted this online.
The Internet Knows Everything
What do you do when you need to know something you don't already know? You turn to the internet, of course! You can always guarantee that there is going to be someone who can answer your question online, even if it is an extremely niche and bizarre question. And while we've never wondered what happens when someone is shot with a rock salt shotgun shell, now we know, thanks to the internet.
Although this is a little terrifying, one thing we do know is that we'll feel pretty safe going to Walt Disney World for a family vacation. Apparently, the security staff knows their stuff!
The Religion Debate
If you put ten people in a room and asked them to debate the many intricacies of religion, there's no doubt about the fact that they would be there for days. Everyone has their own opinions and beliefs, but while they should bring people together, these beliefs tend to divide people. This is especially true on social media - and most people can't go a day without seeing someone's post on religion.
But if you ask us, this person should have pressed "delete" when they wrote this post on Facebook. Surely they would have known that this would have caused a ruckus?
Once Upon This Island
The conversation around trans people has really heated up over the years, but many of the arguments that people use against trans people are normally bizarre and completely unlikely. You know, like this one! Why would you put 110 people on a deserted island, anyway? What would be the point? But if you ask us, having a community of people all descended from the same 10 men would cause all kinds of problems.
So, why does their gender identity really matter in this case? Well, it doesn't. Let's just hope that they all managed to have a good time on this island instead.
