The US ad website Craigslist has its roots in 1995 when Craig Newmark created an email distribution list for his friends that featured local events in the San Francisco Bay Area.

One year later, it became a web-based service, expanding into other classified categories. By the dawn of the new millennium, Craigslist expanded into other US cities.

As of now, Craigslist operates in 70 countries and more than 700 cities. Wow. The first non-English languages that Craigslist supported were Spanish, French, Italian, German and Portuguese — this happened in 2008.

I worked in an office that kept a typewriter around for when we needed to make corrections to signed forms and other documents. A young attorney asked me if I could show him how to turn it on, so I did. He sat down and then just looked at it—he couldn’t figure out how to put the paper in—and yet he somehow thought he was going to white-out some text to be replaced with other text? I took pity on him and did it for him in just a couple of minutes. Sometimes being old really pays off.

Now, let’s talk numbers because they’re jaw-droppingly huge. Craigslist has over 20 billion (that’s right, that’s a ‘b’, not an ‘m’) page views each month (this one’s an ‘m’, though), and it had more than 49.4 million unique monthly visitors in the US alone.

A lady out my way took in a bobcat thinking it was somebody's stray. I've seen joke posts like this, but this lady was legit not from America and had brought a very unruly bobcat into her house in hopes of returning it to its humans. Some people very gently and kindly informed her that she had a wild animal, but the really terrible part is all the hate and bullshit she got over it. Just because something is familiar to you, doesn't mean other people know it. Don't treat people badly for lacking information. Help, don't hate.

I would have thought this was fake, but recently someone called the police (in germany) and told them he just had an accident with a 'giant hamster', that was now lying dead near the road. It was a wild boar.

The cat's ears and tail are up, so he/she probably isn't bothered. The body language looks relaxed.

I'm guessing he's joking, since foxes are common in North America, Central and South America, Europe, central Asia, east Asia and Africa. Don't know if there are fox species in south Asia and Southeast Asia. Some people keep foxes as pets, and this is probably a picture of a pet fox.

How do you define "common"? I live in Europe and I've never seen a fox in my life. It also may depend on where in each continent.

Craigslist also has 80 million new classified ads each month. The numbers are so stunningly big that it makes perfect sense why there are so many ads that have us laughing out loud.
