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.

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.

This is actually a valid question because this director (Bong Joon-ho) has directed two English-language movies, both produced in South Korea.

Tessa Thompson

No, actually, it's not as it stands. If she'd asked why he'd made it in in Korean, and gone on to say something that put her bringing up the language it was made in into an intelligent context, then she wouldn't sound like someone who can't fathom why a Korean would want to make a film about their home country that has the actors speaking Korean.

No, she does have a point. In an international market, films are generally in English if they want to have global appeal. It's not right, but it's how things are. It was a bold choice for him to do a global release of a film in Korean. I'm so glad it won. Maybe the movie world will open up a bit more to other languages and cultures now.

If there were a movie villain equivalent, it would be Xur from The Last Starfighte. I've heard so many people, when referring to subtitled films say, they want to watch a movie, not read. To quote Bugs Bunny, "You uncultured swine!"

Well to be fair 100 miles in three directions and I'm still in the same state. I'm nearly in the same county. Europeans have a much shorter route to many vastly different cultures. And really your comment is pretty elitist. There are quite a few Americans that will never travel outside their state because they lack the financial ability to do so.

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.
