Turns out, there's a whole subreddit dedicated to celebrating software acting outside its parameters and its unpredictable malfunctions. It sounds geeky, but believe me, you don't need to be a hacker to appreciate it.

Nearly 1 million members belong to the online community, sharing pics and videos of the biggest glitches in the Matrix, including the time Netflix praised the Nazi party and an Uber driver went exploring in the sea.

"The failures that go viral within our community are usually those that have some humor in them," a moderator of the subreddit told Bored Panda. "For example, the description for the 'Hitler and the Nazis' documentary being displayed under the Spongebob movie."

The moderator said people who follow the subreddit seem to be really invested in it. "From the interactions I've seen, people often have an interest in programming and will try to theorize why the software failed. Some will also often meme the failure if it's funny."

But don't think that only regular home users experience software disruptions. For example, more than 100 flights to and from London's Heathrow airport were disrupted on the 16 of February 2020, after it was hit by technical issues, affecting departure boards and check-in systems. A spokesperson for Heathrow didn't say much, just bleated that it happened "due to the sensitive nature of those processes."

Another memorable software hiccup happened a few years earlier, in mid-January, 2016. Then, the Nest smart thermostat (owned by Google) experienced a glitch after a software update went wrong, forcing the device's batteries to drain and leaving it unable to control temperature, meaning that American users were unable to heat their homes or get hot water on one of the coldest weekends of the year. The company said the fault had been caused by a firmware update and quickly rolled out a new one to solve the issue.

You can't live without technology but sometimes you can't live with it, too.

Ok, this really made me laugh out loud! And now I want to listen to it, just to know what it sounds like. Did the program really interpret system preferences like an audio file (that would be so cool and weird)... or did someone make an audio file with that title and matching thumbnail for the laughs? Now I come to think about it, probably the latter...
