Humans have come a long way since our Neanderthal forefathers, but sometimes something happens that makes you wonder just how much we've evolved. Are we really so crazy about our health, that we need diet water? Unbeatable eggs? A case for a banana that is already equipped with a perfect guard called a peel? Though you would say that those are useless things we say it's marvelous! These utterly weird things perfectly depict how creative we are in every sphere imaginable. Yes, sometimes the useless inventions a bit over-the-top, but hey, stairs that seemingly lead nowhere might be a portal to some other dimension. You just have to take a proper look. And the road sign containing a message that it is not a road sign might carry a more profound message and is not some measly design fail at all.

Check out this list of utterly crazy things and unimaginably bad designs compiled by Bored Panda and don't forget to turn on your imagination when trying to understand what purpose they could have. Although, we are pretty sure that if this list of funny things would reach Darwin's hands, he might be a little disappointed in the evolutionary processes.

Well it's pointless now that they took out the fence that used to be there... look near the bottom of the gate and you can see there was something there at one point. They probably couldn't take that out because it's either city-owned or there's some regulation that needs to be followed or some dumb thing like that.
