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 really think all road construction should be done during the night or during times where there isn't a lot of traffic. Things like this will continue to occur as well as inconveniencing people who are trying to get to work or an appointment.

BlackestDawn
Community Member
3 years ago

The inconvenience may still be there since not all road work will be in such a state that it can be safely (or at all) driven on when they don't work on it. Plus there is the financial aspect where working at night usually costs more than day, and then add in the extra costs for floodlights or similar so that they can see what they are doing in the first place. On the whole it's just not practical to do road work only at night.
