Teen Chops Off Own Hand China

What does a normal person do when they can't step away from the computer? Going out with friends, to the gym or just for a walk around the neighborhood all sound reasonable, but a 19-year-old from the city of Nantong, in Jiangsu province, China decided to take things to the next level. In a nutshell, he left a handwritten note on his bed stating "Mum, I have gone to the hospital for a while. Don't worry, I will definitely come back this evening," snuck out of his home with a kitchen knife and then proceeded to sever his left hand in a public park. Next, a taxi was called to take him to a nearby Emergency Room, with the hand still lying on the ground. His mother said: "We cannot accept what has happened. It was completely out of the blue. He was a smart boy." Continue reading for the news report and more information.

Unfortunate Spelling Error

It's no surprise that many schools have sophisticated surveillance systems, complete with infrared night vision, but when you tell someone to post signs around campus, make sure that "Smile You're on Campus Camera" doesn't have a glaring typo. Also, it would be smart to not install cameras directly behind a display, that is unless...the placement was intentional, and the front lens is a decoy with a real one pointed downwards. Continue reading for more unfortunate typos spotted by geeks in the wild.

Craigslist Funny

Let's face it, finding an honest seller on Craigslist isn't the easiest of tasks, and sometimes, you'll have people who are out to purely waste your time. For example, this person posted a "wanted" ad on Craigslist to score a multi-disc changer, but ended up with much more of a headache than he bargained for. As you can see, the seller had no intention of off-loading his device, or at least in one piece. Click here to view the first image in this week's funny school pictures gallery.

Watch the World Burn

There are internet memes for just about everything, including one called "Some Men Just Want To Watch The World Burn", which is an expression often used to feature a rude gesture, faux pas or blatant ignorance of instruction, like putting up reward sign that one-ups the original. Did you know that the phrase surfaced online after it was said in the The Dark Knight by Bruce Wayne's butler Alfred Pennyworthwhile explaining to Bruce Wayne that his nemesis, the Joker, is unlike any other criminal Batman has faced?

Kids Think Animals

Kids really have no idea what they're doing, so when placed around house pets, they follow their lead, and in this case, drinking spilled milk from the floor. On a related note, did you know that cats and milk usually don't mix well. Similar to humans, cats often develop lactose intolerance over time because they're born with lots of lactase (enzyme needed to digest lactose), but it diminishes with age. That's why it's best to stop feeding your cat milk after it is fully weaned. Continue reading for more kids who think they're animals.

Printer Prank

If you just can't wait for April Fools' Day and want to kick off the festivities early this year, just print out this sheet (HP / Xerox / Epson / Kyocera / Brother). Next, place this on the copy machine and watch the hilarity ensue, that is unless...someone has already beaten you to it.

Social Media FAIL

There are some people who should probably stay offline, and the person above, is one of them. On a side note, did you know that prior to Facebook's homepage redesign back in 2007, the front page used to feature a mystery man's face that was partly obscured behind a cloud of binary code? Well, the "Facebook guy," was actually a manipulated photo of Al Pacino created by a friend and classmate of Mark Zuckerberg. Continue reading for more.

Last Laugh

People hate being the butt of jokes, especially if they are the ones telling them. For example, this person wanted to convey that there must be ugly in this world for there to be beauty, but one of their friends decided to go in for the burn. Mastering comebacks - the art of replying to an insult with a witty word, statement or sentence - can take some thinking to say the least. Continue reading for more.

Laptop FAIL

Laptops come in all sizes, but there are a few things they probably shouldn't be used for, like selfies. Or, should you get the urge to tear apart an older laptop, a pizza box is not a smart alternative to use as a case. If you just so happen to be burning a candle, make sure it's far away from where you're sitting, or else "hole in display error" may occur.
