Stupid Science Question

SSDs don't have any moving parts, so they're nearly invulnerable to failure in high shock / vibration environments and extreme temperatures. This latter, operating in extreme temperatures between 0°C to +70°C, allows an SSD-based system to handle more applications in difficult situations where the traditional hard drives fail. However, when heated to a gaseous state (if even possible), it would not enable cloud computing, like this person has asked. Unfortunately, that is just one of the many dumb science and tech questions people have actually posted online. Continue reading for more.

Only Had One Job

Sometimes, people are given simple tasks, maybe even just one job, but they still manage to fail miserably. For example, the Dick Smith cell phone was supposed to float on water, but as you can see, it sank all the way to the bottom, which is probably why we've never heard of any new models after this one. Or, stocking a school supply section with pencils, etc. and not knives. Continue reading for more.

Funny Letter Spacing

Just about any designer can tell you that letter spacing and fonts are extremely important on signs, or else you may end up with disasters like the one above. However, some may have actually been done on purpose, and the reasoning behind it is to get free exposure online. "If these mistakes are not the result of an errant space, then they might be result of automatic 'kerning,' which is the process of adjusting the spacing between characters," says Bored Panda. Continue reading to see more funny and bizarre examples that will make you cringe in horror, or so we'd like to think.

Man Cuts Everything in Half

Divorces are never pretty, especially in the case of this German man, who appears to have cut all of their belongings in half, literally. The disgruntled ex-husband goes by the internet alias of Der Juli decided to post a video showing him cutting chairs, beds and phones in half, with the description: "Thank you for 12 'beautiful years,' Laura! You've really earned half. Greetings also to my successor." Everything from phones to laptops, and even teddy bears, he split them. One of the descriptions on his eBay page translates as: "From my half I must now separate, fond memories you can not remove." Continue reading for more pictures and the video.

Funny USB Drive

USB drives come in all shapes and sizes, but despite how easy they are to use, people still end up making funny mistakes. For example, this person spent 15-minutes fiddling with their drive wondering why it wasn't working, only to discover that it was plugged into a neighbor's computer. That is just one of the many internet users who should probably spend a little less time online posting about everything, and more time learning a thing or two. Continue reading for more.

Funny Windshield Note

Why are these photographers geeky? Well, they were smart enough to capture these windshield notes left for inconsiderate drivers (plus a few others) and then upload them to the internet for everyone to see. Starting off, we have someone who assumed the person that parked must have been blind-folded as well as clawed at by a crazed ferret. Continue reading for more interesting notes you probably haven't seen before.

Dumb Internet Users

There are those who only post on Facebook when it's someone's birthday, and then others that document their entire lives, right down to the tiniest details. For example, this person has obviously never used a power strip before and rather than plug it into a wall outlet, they used one of its own outlets and then proceeded to post the above image online. Continue reading for more internet users who should probably think twice before posting something - plus a bonus user.

Bathroom Computer Setup

Your eyes aren't playing tricks, someone actually setup a secondary computer workstation inside their bathroom for use when they're on the can. So now this geek can skip playing mobile games and attempt marathon sessions while relieving themselves, complete with a 5.1 surround speaker system as well as three displays. Continue reading for more examples of clever geeks who take laziness to the next level.

Funny Designer Client Message

Any designers who freelances online (and offline) have probably come across their fair share of annoying clients. Whether it be asking for hundreds of revisions on a $5 project, or just being downright rude when requesting things, these requests will drive anyone crazy. For example, people who try opening Photoshop files in Power Point and then emailing the designer rather than Googling it first. Continue reading for more.

Unfortunate Starbucks Sign

Sometimes, the people who design signs and ads don't think things entirely through, and that results in some unfortunate placements that will make you cringe (or laugh). For example, this Starbucks delivery van didn't take into account the sliding door that would cover up some of its logo when opened, and the result? It "sucks" of course - could have been intentional as well to get internet users talking. Continue reading for more.
