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!

This makes me uncomfortable just looking at it. I have a weird fear of being trapped, I don't know how to explain it. But I panic when I can't use my arms or free myself from something. Not being to get these shirts off would make me panic and cry and probably lose my mind a bit.

Last week a woman was killed in Corfu because people were firing shots in the air to celebrate the christening of her nephew. She was in her 40s. Unfortunately there are regions in Greece, were it's tradition to fire shots in the air even with real bullets, for celebrations. Too many people have lost their lives, and yet it's still practiced... :(
