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.

Andrew Gibb

The lyrics in full: Broken lines, broken strings, Broken threads, broken springs, Broken idols, broken heads, People sleeping in broken beds Ain't no use jiving Ain't no use joking Everything is broken Broken bottles, broken plates, Broken switches, broken gates, Broken dishes, broken parts, Streets are filled with broken hearts Broken words never meant to be spoken, Everything is broken Seem like every time you stop and turn around Something else just hit the ground Broken cutters, broken saws, Broken buckles, broken laws, Broken bodies, broken bones, Broken voices on broken phones Take a deep breath, feel like you're chokin', Everything is broken Every time you leave and go off someplace Things fall to pieces in my face Broken hands on broken ploughs, Broken treaties, broken vows, Broken pipes, broken tools, People bending broken rules Hound dog howling, bull frog croaking, Everything is broken

Yeah, I've done stuff like that. I have a file called Maker after the Dragon Age creator. And one of the macros in there is called "broadleaf forest". Because it creates more sheets (leaves). And I have a small macro for when people mess up an excel and write into cell XY250, messing up the last cell. What it does is reset to the last cell that currently has something in it. It's called 'kill the boy' (which is a Song of Ice and Fire reference). My error messages are similarly random and hard to understand without knowing me. I never expected anyone to use my programs, let alone make some of them standard tools for THE IT at large. I have acquired a certain reputation. Not necessarily a bad one, but certainly a weird one.
