Everyone likes to think that they’re pretty smart and at the top of their game all the time, but the truth is, we all do and say some pretty dumb things sometimes. Like eating an entire bucket of KFC or looking everywhere for our glasses while we’re wearing them (true story). However, sometimes people mess up so badly that they end up on the internet when it looks like brain.exe stopped working for them.

Most of us know that embarrassing memories of dumb stuff that we did back in school/work/last Monday tend to resurface at the worst possible moments. So to make you feel better about yourself, Bored Panda has collected a list of some awesomely dumb things that people have said and done.

There’s nothing like other people messing up to make us forget all of our mistakes for a moment, right, dear Pandas? Scroll down, upvote your fave pics, and if you feel brave, let us know what the stupidest things you’ve ever done were! You can check out our earlier articles about stupid people doing stupid stuff here and here. Oh, and here's the coronavirus edition of dumb people acting dumb.

I was just going to comment the same thing. Technically a panther is not a species of cat but an archaic alternative word for all big cats (pan-thera aka hunts-all). In modern times we only apply it to black big cats, but they can be leopards or jaguars.

There is actually no such thing as a Panther. The word Panther is a Corruption of Panthera which is the Genus of 5 Big Cats, Lions, Tigers, Jaguars, Leopards and Snow Leopards. Cheetahs are not Panthera. I assume the Pink Panther in a Leopard. It's a terrific conversation tho' I can imagine the partner starting to froth at the mouth.

The answer is YES. Panthera is the cat genus which includes tigers, lions, leopards. What is called a Black Panther is really just a black leopard .

Hi, guys. I´m George and I need your help to buy a handcam to our church. Could you help me? Why am I asking it? Because: •In Brazil, its very very expensive, costing around R$ 3000.00. •Our minimum wage is R$ 1045.00 per month (44hrs/week). •$ 1.00 is almost R$ 5.50. •One handcam costs in USA or EU around 300 dollars or euros, while here is almost R$ 3000 (3x minimum wage). I frequent a Baptist church with no $ condition to buy one. Because this pandemic, we are recording our worships to post it in Facebook (facebook.com/ibjcrn) and YouTube (youtube.com/ibjcrn). The recording quality is not good because we are use cheep smartphones (see in the videos). We would like very much to acquire one handcam to improve the quality of ours videos. Could you please help us donating to our online fund at http://vaka.me/1009409? With a very few value, around $5.00 / $6.00 minimum (site’s minimum limit), we can reach our goal and make some better recording. God bless you all.

There are two kinds of stupidity. The kind where we don’t know that we’re being stupid. And the type where we definitely know but don’t want to stop. No matter how important and wise we might be, we’ll still make mistakes.

But there are reasons why human beings do stupid things, even if we’re aware that what we’re doing is wrong.

There are two kinds of pleasure. The first one that some call ‘liking’ is happy satisfaction that we get from eating a good meal, having a drink of water after a fun game of basketball, or getting a hug from a friend you haven’t seen in ages. Simple, wholesome things that make life wonderful.

The second kind of pleasure, ‘wanting,’ is associated with thrills and desire. It’s the second kind of pleasure that makes us do stupid things that can have lots of negative consequences.

Sometimes, we say, “Damn the consequences” and do something small that’s stupid; no real harm done, right? Wrong. This can have a snowball effect and we’ll start doing dumber and dumber things. The next thing you know, we might end up on the internet before our brain.exe could reboot and save the day.
