Go nowhere, see nothing in today’s mantra for an estimated 20% of the world’s population. But let’s be real. Nobody saw the global lockdown coming. All the more so, nobody could expect how drastically it would change our daily lives.

When the home becomes your only playground, simple things get really damn complicated. From your TV dying on the first day of stay-at-home quarantine to having the worst luck to walk around with a tooth knocked out because all non-essential business is closed, there are too many things that could cause the worst day ever. But hey, at least you can take some hilarious photos of your misfortunes.

Tune in for Bored Panda’s compilation of unlikely everyday struggles and funny accidents below to see that some people are having a bad day that's way worse than yours.

With the coronavirus outbreak in full swing, phrases like “lockdown,” “flattening the curve,” and “self-isolation” have entered our daily vocabulary. Since these terms are new to the general public, let's see what they really refer to.

"Lockdown" isn’t a typical term used by public health officials, but it represents an order to stay indoors. Lindsay Wiley, a health law professor at the Washington College of Law, explained that “lockdown could be anything from mandatory geographic quarantine, to non-mandatory recommendations to shelter in place that can be issued by health officials at the federal, state, or local level.”

Most of us are currently staying at home, while some are in "self-isolation." Self-isolation is mandatory for people positive with coronavirus who don’t have critical symptoms that’d require hospital intervention. It’s also a precautionary measure to avoid the spread of the virus.

You've probably heard of “flattening the curve”⁠—a widespread mantra of many health officials and politicians. It refers to flattening the curve in the chart graph that staggers the rate of coronavirus cases. If the curve is flattened, medical facilities will be able to provide tests and treatment to anyone who needs them.

Mine did that whilst I was opening it. Managed to hold it up so the freezer door stayed on. Then did some nifty moves to reach tools to re attach it (whilst still holding it up) Only the top hinge unscrewed so I was luckier than this person (the top door holds the hinge for the bottom door)
