The Internet is a wonderful tool that has changed the lives of millions. There are so many reasons to be thankful that it exists in our lives today. However, it does give everyone a public forum. Everyone. If you want to be heard, you can do so online. And if you want your friends and family to hear every little thought that goes through your head? You get Facebook. However, when stupid people get Facebook, stupid things happen.
1.) How stupid CAN you be?
2.) Someone doesn’t know that Austria is a country.
3.) Well, that’s embarrassing.
4.) They shouldn’t be allowed to use elevators.
5.) I can assure you Marilyn Monroe did NOT say that.
7.) “That’s right. It’s not TRUE.” Okay, kid.
8.) I don’t think those are happy noises.
9.) I think someone needs a new, more informed, nanny.
10.) That kid will correct his mistakes. Mommy will not.
11.) That escalated quickly.
14.) The suspense is killing me!
16.) Oh, how the internet ruined people.
17.) Kids, that’s a “pound” symbol.
18.) I wish I could like that comment.
19.) Has he not been paying taxis?
20.) Someone needs to go to bed or else he’ll be grumpy.
22.) Ah yes, the patriotic “weird looking parrot.”
24.) Mt. Rushmore, the most perfect act of nature.
25.) Did they never question WHY it’s the “4th of July?”
28.) That’s not how it works…
29.) Commas are important.
30.) Someone made the wrong joke at the wrong time.
Via Bored Panda It’s hard not to be violently embarrassed for each and every one of these people. … Except #31. She needs to re-prioritize her life and stop listening to so much Justin Bieber. Make you laugh? Then do your friends a favor and share these hilarious Facebook fails with them.

When a man discovered one of his ex-girlfriend’s pregnancy tests still sitting in his cabinet, he decided to take it. Whether it was just for fun or to symbolically exact revenge on his ex, who knows. But after he ‘tested’ himself, something happened he never expected: the test was positive. But keep reading, this story takes an unforeseen turn. He told a friend about this strange (and frankly confusing) story. His friend decided it was hilarious, so he made the story into a comic in typical Reddit fashion and posted it online.
His friend thought it would be funny to tell the story on Reddit.
But as it turns out, the positive pregnancy test wasn’t just a funny coincidence. It was an indicator of something much more serious.
That test may have saved his life. Other users that saw the comic, which was supposed to just be funny, quickly pointed out what a positive pregnancy test for a male can really mean. The top comment by user goxilo stated: “If this is true, you should check yourself for testicular cancer. Seriously. Google it.” As it turns out, home pregnancy tests can detect testicular cancer. These pregnancy tests detect beta human chorionic gonadotropin. This is an indicator of pregnancy, but also testicular cancer. The man who took the test went to the doctor and discovered that yes, he had a small tumor in his right testicle. What started out as a joke likely saved his life or, at the very least, enabled him to get medical help sooner than he otherwise would have. Pregnancy tests may not detect cancer in all cases (or even in most cases), but if any man takes a test and it is positive, they should go to a doctor. Not that it’s exactly normal for guys to be taking pregnancy tests… Source: Reddit Share this bizarre story with others below.

Actually watching the Academy Awards at a huge Hollywood viewing party is easier said than done.
Inside the party. Not pictured: me. Jamie Mccarthy / Getty
An Oscars viewing party is only as good as the people you’re watching with. Do they know when to be snarky and when to keep silent? (Julianne Moore is speaking. That means you are not.) Do they get appropriately emotional at the right moments? (When David Oyelowo cries, you cry too.) Have they seen most of the nominated films, or are they at least willing to withhold judgment based on a single clip? (I sat through The Judge, and I have earned your respect.)
Which is to say, a lot can go wrong. After all, there’s a reason I’ve taken to hosting a viewing party for one where the only mandatory attire is sweats and the only distraction is my own tweeting. Nevertheless, this year, I ventured out into the world outside my apartment for a chance to check out Elton John’s annual Oscars viewing party, a fundraiser for the Elton John AIDS Foundation, and an excuse to rent a decent tux.
First things first, the Elton John AIDS Foundation does amazing work, having raised more than $45 million, according to a publicist. That’s not really surprising given the fact that the viewing party is punctuated by stars like Alec Baldwin and Sharon Osbourne asking attendees to dig a little deeper into their pockets. Guests’ pledges are also projected onto a large screen, which adds incentive to make a big donation. (I know exactly how much you gave, Chris Colfer, and I’m proud of you.)
I acknowledge the great cause, because regardless of my personal experience at the Elton John viewing party, I’m glad that it happens every year. But since you asked, my personal experience was actually rather uncomfortable. When I first arrived, I milled about trying to go against my better judgment and make conversation with strangers. I did engage Lisa Rinna for a few seconds before realizing I had nothing particularly interesting to say, aside from complimenting her dress. And I managed to sneak a peek at Aaron Paul’s ballot, but only after I’d turned mine in.
Eventually, we were escorted into the dining room where the dinner and viewing party would take place. And that’s when things took a turn. I quickly realized my table was chatty. Listen, I am not an antisocial monster. I think it’s nice when the people around me want to know my name and what I do for a living and where I got my tux. (Men’s Wearhouse, thank you very much.) But this is the Oscars. This is the one night of the year I actually care about watching TV live and sharing my opinions with the internet, because I’m a millennial. The people at my table were more interested in loudly talking about how they hadn’t seen the vast majority of nominated films. Ida is streaming on Netflix, people! Come on.

I tried to focus on the show, but it was increasingly difficult to hear. (With each drink, the woman next to me was becoming drunker and drunker and louder and louder, which might have had something to do with that.) I took note of the fact that Gillian Anderson and JC Chasez were sitting at a table together, and I desperately looked for reasons to join them. Can you imagine how well-timed and expertly delivered Gillian Anderson’s barbs are? I can just see JC Chasez throwing his head back with laughter.
I continued to live-tweet the drunken exploits of my neighbor and tried to mentally will Sir Elton John to turn up the audio so I could actually hear the broadcast. Things reached their nadir at my table when John Legend and Common performed “Glory” — which was, to be clear, the highlight of the Academy Awards themselves — as another woman at the table rolled her eyes, accused people of fake crying, and loudly lamented the public conversation about racism in Hollywood that Selma‘s snubs had inspired.
I wish I could say I handled this all better than I did. I asked her what her issue was with “Glory,” and she claimed she didn’t have one, just that it had to win the Oscar for Best Original Song because people were so angry about the film not getting other nominations. And when it did win, she kept repeating “no surprises here,” before muttering something to her friend about having to give the blacks something. “I’m not going to sit here with a racist,” I said to no one in particular, before getting up and walking away. (I am a man of honor, but one who is also terrified of confrontation.) I never returned to my table, watching the rest of the broadcast from the cocktail area. My biggest regret is that I didn’t actually try to engage with that woman over her racism, and my second biggest regret is that I left the table before dessert was served.
That uncomfortableness at my table was luck of the draw: I happened to be at a viewing party with the wrong people. (And to be clear, not everyone at my table was terrible! But as with any family gathering, the drunkest and the most racist attendees always get the most attention.)
Once the show was over, I quickly discovered that the Elton John Oscars viewing party is a lot more fun once the actual viewing portion ends. As is the case with any Hollywood party, I spent most of my time walking around, silently acknowledging the presence of various actors (it was basically a shit ton of TV people, who are often considered to be less important than movie stars; but I happen to watch more TV than movies, so nyah), and wondering how long the valet line would be (it ended up being not so bad. I stood next to Dance Moms star Abby Lee Miller, who is always a hoot, bless her heart).
Ultimately, I feel very lucky that I was able to experience a glamorous Hollywood night, but I was also comforted by the fact that my sweats were waiting for me at home.

How did a tough-on-immigrants sheriff wind up convicted for conspiring to harbor illegal aliens? Jimmy Metts, the longest-serving sheriff in South Carolina, exploited the contradictions between anti-immigrant sentiment and the need for cheap, undocumented labor.

Have you ever met a person that looked familiar, but you couldn’t quite place why? Maybe you even searched the Internet to find which celebrity they look like and came up with nothing. Well, maybe instead of looking at real people, next time you should expand your search to cartoons as well.
Sometimes, people have cartoon dopplegangers (just wait til you see it).
1.) Grandma from Tweety Bird Cartoons
2.) Linda Belcher from Bob’s Burger
4.) Mr. Burns from The Simpsons
5.) Linguini from Ratatouille
6.) Comic Book Guy from The Simpsons
7.) Bobby Hill from King Of The Hill
8.) Boo from Monsters Inc.
9.) Consuela from Family Guy
10.) Ned Flanders from The Simpsons
13.) Cartman from South Park
14.) Meg Griffin from Family Guy
15.) Peter Griffin from Family Guy
16.) Dora from Dora The Explorer
17.) Mr. Johnson from Sesame Street
… so which came first, the human or the cartoon?

Shameless. But, it’s totally OK, because it was the “non-partisan” and “independent” Organizing for Action, right?
@amandacarpenter IT’S NOT OBAMA IT’S ORGANIZING FOR ACTION YOU KNOW THAT ORGANIZATION THAT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH OBAMA
— Kevin Eder (@keder) March 31, 2013
@keder Right. It’s just from BarackObama.com. Totally different!
— Amanda Carpenter (@amandacarpenter) March 31, 2013
That’s right. Twitter users have asked why this “independent” organization still has the verified @BarackObama Twitter account. The org is also located at BarackObama.com.
Twitter users were disgusted. What would Jesus do? Not that.
Obama sends out a fundraising email on Easter??? #comeon

Strange Obama campaign fundraising email today, bashing capitalism and ignoring Easter.
— SEA-QUEST’er (@Hermione_Hero) March 31, 2013
Like Google RT @amandacarpenter: Fundraising email from Obama at 11:43 church time on Easter AM. I guess they weren’t targeting churchgoers?
— Steven J. Duffield (@StevenJDuffield) March 31, 2013
Yes. As Twitchy reported, Google celebrated Easter Sunday by honoring Cesar Chavez.
Happy Easter: so far I’ve received 2 fundraising emails from #Ofa

I’ve gotten multiple fundraising requests today via e-mail from OFA. On Easter!! No wonder Dems are getting clobbered in the South
— Allen Klump (@AllenKlump) March 31, 2013
First google chooses to overlook Easter, then OFA sends a fundraising pitch….not sure which is worse
— Sean Spicer (@seanspicer) March 31, 2013
I find it really repulsive that OFA is pushing an artificial fundraising deadline on Easter.

Two emails from Obama’s OFA today asking for money…on Easter.
— Gregoré (@greg_zemaitis) March 31, 2013
Pelosi was in on the repulsive, too. The DCCC sent out a fundraising email on her behalf and that one didn’t even mention Easter. Easter Shmeaster! Cough up the cash.

Hey, why is ‘non-partisan’ OFA ‘FACT’ trolling GOP using @BarackObama Twitter account?
Note to Obama: The media believe your Twitter account retweeted a photo of John Lennon’s bloody glasses
Good question: Should Twitter de-verify @BarackObama?
