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.

Finnish, Hungarian, and Estonian are their own language group. No exceptions!

Yes, and they're in one group together basically because they're so weird they don't fit anywhere else within the European language group. (At least that's what I was taught.)

I’m upset I can’t get the full picture to load. I want to see the baby chinchillas! One minute later: I just looked them up online. OMG! When they’re babies they look like they’re all head with a little body! Cuties! And they’re so fluffy I want to die!

Hello TINA, I am publicizing this amazing testimonial of my life to you because. i knew of so many people who will still be having this same issues, which you are finding so difficult to solve. I and my Wife,  have been suffering from HIV for the past 2 years. we have visited doctors but they couldn't get the permanent solution to my sickness. I almost loosed it until one faithful day when i saw so many amazing testimonials about DOCTOR, RENE how he has cured patients infected with HIV. So i  told my HUSBAND and we both decide to give it a try and contact him, here we are now. All thanks to DOCTOR RENE for curing our HIV permanently. Now we are both  perfectly fine, and we are both  HIV negative. you too can get cured today by contacting his email address now on  (doctoorrene@gmail.com) WhatsApp (+17653609749)

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.

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.
