40 Posts That Make Us Worry About The Future Of Humanity

11. Geology And Geography

Here is another case of someone not understanding geography very well. This person doesn’t even realize that New York is actually still in the United States of America. However, when corrected, they double down and “correct” the person they took a geology class, so they know what they’re talking about.

Another case of someone getting it completely wrong. It isn’t as bad as the other poster not knowing San Francisco isn’t in California.

10. Not Covering Your Tracks

Some people try to act like geniuses and share posts that they want other people to believe are valid. There’s a clear difference between telling a little white lie and pulling a tale out of your rear end. This poster definitely spun an account that already seemed farfetched from the beginning.

Nevertheless, the falsehood is made perfect by the comment below their story. The response puts the poster on blast for telling such a big lie.

9. Socks On Your Hands

What’s better than having warm hands during winter by wearing gloves? Apparently, this person isn’t aware of that concept. They want to invent something that keeps your hands warm.

However, when someone suggests that such an invention already exists, the answer goes right over their head. There are just some people whom you can’t help, no matter how hard you try.

8. You Can’t Please This Vegan 

Vegans seem to be very headstrong about other people using animal products, to the point of belittling them for it. This person dared to give a bad evaluation to their Uber driver simply because they had leather car seats.

Their review had nothing to do with their performance as a driver. Talk about having their head so far up their own self-righteous rear end.

7. More Bad Math

Here is another person who definitely skipped sex ed class back in high school. Pregnancy usually lasts for about nine months, regardless if you’re having one child or twins or triplets.

Apparently, this person thought that multiple babies meant that each one had to be carried to term consecutively before they could be born. Can you imagine how big a mother would have to be pregnant for that long?

6. Libraries Do Exist

Libraries are some of the most overlooked places when it comes to finding something to do. People forget that they’re funded with public money and provide many resources to people who need them. Evidently, this person has been in the digital age for so long that they forgot or never heard of a library.

Because their question describes one exactly. Let’s hope they discovered their local library and treated themselves to everything it has to offer.

5. How YouTube Really Works

YouTube is rife with videos from a myriad of diverse people from all walks of life talking about different subjects. However, they do it all themselves; YouTube doesn’t do the work for them. Clearly, this person needs to explain that YouTube is not a film crew. 

They don’t travel around the country, recording anything and everything for people to see. If it did that, then there would be much fewer videos of cats and DIY crafts.

4. The Worst Logic About Vaccines

Analogies on social media tend to be, well, not that well thought out. People will use anything to make their arguments more sound. However, they forget that their analogies don’t even make sense to begin with.

Thankfully, this commenter rightfully put them in their place by pointing out the fallacy in their logic. Knowing the Internet, however, the original poster probably didn’t learn their lesson from these insane posts.

3. Doesn’t Come From Pluto

There’s one thing to be wrong about something and not understanding why, but it’s another thing entirely to insult the person who’s giving you the correct answer even after you’ve still denied it. A naive mother thought that plutonium came from Pluto because it sounds similar.

However, plutonium is really a manufactured substance. Someone needs to go back to school or at least not treat their daughter like an idiot.

2. The Awful Girlfriend Test

There’s a list of things you really shouldn’t do in a relationship, and this guy broke one of the big ones. He invited his girlfriend over to his place for the first time and expected that she would clean his entire home for him.

Moreover, when she didn’t (because she doesn’t live there!), he declared that she had failed the girlfriend test and wanted to end the relationship. Talk about a selfish pig.

1. Dinosaurs Are Not Dragons

It doesn’t matter if you haven’t taken a science class lately. People should already know that dragons and dinosaurs aren’t the same animals. They’re both giant lizards, but dinosaurs existed, and dragons didn’t.

However, one conspiracy theorist took it upon themselves to make crazy posts like this one. The person declared that “dinosaurs” are actually dragon bones that people buried to hide the truth. Their theory is definitely a stretch of the imagination, to be sure.
