We all have those moments, times when reason and logic are temporarily suspended and a brain fart occurs. If you are lucky, you are alone and the only negative consequences are the slightly bruised ego that comes with the realization that you aren't quite as clever as you thought you were.

These people however, were not so lucky. Not only were there witnesses to their mental hiccups, but there were recording devices on hand to capture them in all their glory, for all of us to enjoy. Compiled into a list by Bored Panda, what we have here are genuine head-scratchers, hilariously silly moments of people being dumb to the point that you just gotta ask yourself, what the hell were they thinking?

Scroll down below to check them out for yourself, and let us know what you think in the comments!

I only saw the top part of this at first, so I thought this was a woven-seat chair that she fell through, and I was like, "OK, that looks really silly, but could happen to anyone, defective chair, whatever"--then I realized what was actually happening. WTF was she expecting? Even if she fit through the hoop, she'd then fall 10 feet to the ground and land on her butt.
