The moment that you think you’ve got life all figured out, the universe throws you a curveball. Possibly in the form of an interesting opportunity, but (if we’re completely honest) most likely in the shape of a funny or surprising picture that makes you snort into your cup of tea. You see, despite all of humanity’s flaws, people are actually very creative and come up with some extremely bizarre things.

One place that documents the funny, creative, and sometimes plain downright weird things that humanity has done is the ‘Of Course That’s a Thing’ subreddit. A community of just over 723k people, r/ofcoursethatsathing does exactly what it says on the tin: it invites people to share pictures of things that make you think, “Of course that’s a thing.”

It’s more a feeling than a phrase, and you’ll find the very best examples of just how peculiar a world we really live in below. Remember to upvote the pics that made you go “what?” and be sure to share this list with your friends. You and I both know that they’ll enjoy some of these images! Personally, as a huge D&D nerd, I’m a big fan of the bread alignment chart, but be sure to let everyone know which one’s your #1 pic.

Creativity is an intrinsic part of being human. It might not always produce something that’s objectively good in aesthetic terms, but it’s still one of the things that drive us forward. Beauty, after all, is in the eye of the beholder (even if that beholder should really read up a bit more on what’s actually stylish).

National Geographic spoke to Agustín Fuentes, the author of ‘The Creative Spark: How Imagination Made Humans Exceptional,’ about art and its relationship to our evolution.

“We tend to think of these beautiful cave paintings of the big mastodons and wild oryx as art. But that’s only about 40,000 years old. We know that 85,000 years ago, in southern Africa, our ancestors were carving on ostrich eggshells. Twenty thousand years earlier than that, they were drilling holes in small shells and wearing them around their necks,” Fuentes told National Geographic.

“One hundred thousand years before that, they were crumbling ochre and rubbing it on their bodies. Five hundred thousand years before that, half a million years ago, they were making tools that were incredibly beautiful and more symmetrical and aesthetic than they had to be to do their jobs. Art is very deep in human history,” Fuentes explained that art is fundamentally a part of who we are. Then and now.

The ‘Of Course That’s a Thing’ subreddit has been around since 2013, so you know for a fact that its content is something that captures people’s attention. No doubt, sometimes, because the pictures are very errr imaginative. Otherwise, without this quality content, the subreddit wouldn’t have survived and thrived for so long. The community will also be celebrating its eighth birthday in a couple of weeks. So, if you like their stuff, think about joining the subreddit or just popping in with a quick, ‘Hi, congrats.’

Before joining the subreddit, though, there are a few rules that you have to be aware of. They’re all common sense things anyway, so they shouldn’t be a problem for anyone who isn’t an internet troll or a massive bigot. Obviously, there’s no place for racism, sexism, or bigotry on the r/ofcoursethatsathing subreddit.

What’s more, the subreddit moderators ask their members not to post any memes or image macros and to avoid self-promotion posts. Furthermore, all members should strive to be polite and void rudeness. “Everybody has a line; if you feel yours was crossed, this is your report option,” the moderators explain. And that’s how you keep an online community wholesome and healthy. All so that people can keep on saying, “Of course that’s a thing.”
