"About 25 years ago I was explaining time zones to a 20ish year old intern at a large scientific agency. She wasn't getting it, so i got an orange I brought for lunch and used it as the Earth.

Me: Ok, pretend this is the Earth. The sun only shines on one side, so it's day on approximately half at any given time. Now since the Earth rotates (as i spin the orange)...

Intern: So wait. Hold on. So you're saying the Earth is round?

I wish i was joking."


""If you're an atheist, why don't you go around killing people?" I'm worried now that there are people out there who would just casually kill, but don't because they're scared of hell."


"Why are you spying on me?

I was working in a call center for Dish Network and a guy called in, very upset. He wanted to know why Dish Network was spying on him. I tried to let him know that we were not in fact spying on him. Which he countered with, "if you are not spying on me then why is there a camera in the damn box?" "Sir, a camera? There is no camera in the receiver" I respond. "Yes there is" he screams "I know there is because I can see everything happening in my room on the TV right now."

I sat there and pondered that statement, trying to figure out what was happening. I asked, "sir, is your TV off right now?" In the background I hear the clear sound of a TV being turned on. I then said, "sir, that is called a reflection. Is there anything else I can help you with?" He hung up."

"Why do we need farmers when we have supermarkets. Heard this in real life and blew my mind"


"I used to be a tour guide in a cave and one summer we had a running contest among the guides to see who could get the dumbest question. Keep in mind, we only accepted questions from adults for entry into the contest. Some of the finalists were:

"Is this cave underground?"

"Will the stalagmites bite me?"

"Are the steps natural?"

"What time is the 4.30 tour?"

And the winner: "Does the water go all the way around the island?""

I thought they were like.. extinct""


"Repairing the scanner scale at a grocery store. I have the scale out of the checkstand, on it's side, bottom removed from the scale, one of the circuit boards removed from the scale and placed on the conveyor belt, I have JUST removed the board that the spinner part connects to (that spinning mirror thing in the bottom of the scanner scale), and someone walks up to the checkstand, places items onto the conveyor and asks "Are you open?"

I should be allowed to throw things at people this dumb."



"Was in a maternity class with my wife. One of the husbands was an endless source of amazing comments. My favorite was while on the topic of breastfeeding. “So do you just poke holes in them or what?” There was a very long, very shocked pause from the instructor before she explained it to him."

"I had the neighbors by for a quick chat a few years ago, and we happened to be standing by our goat pen, we had three at the time. For whatever reason, people don't really see goats as pets, and I'm often asked about their purpose, are they meat, etc.

Well, this guy asked if I milked them. I explained that they're all retired breeding males.

He followed that up by asking again if we milk them, and was so affronted by the look I could not help giving him that he left in a huff. I didn't mean to be rude, but I definitely looked at him as if he were an idiot and he was smart enough, at least, to figure that out."



"In retail "Where is the paint in this stupid store? I was sent down here and they lied! " "Right behind you (literally dozens of paint cans 8 feet behind her) " "No they're not!"

“Do the chicken lettuce wraps have chicken in them?”



"Once my mom had to have part of a lung removed due to cancer. Afterwards, the doctor showed us the imaging that showed the remaining cancer spread through the rest of her lungs, which we already knew about. My dad asked him why they didn't remove all of her lungs."

#15 You're an @$$hole. Why would the average person know the difference? You're only in the Reserves because you're too much of a p@#sy to actually fight, but you still want the attention.

And you are an idiot, people sign up for the reserves may serve 2- or 4-years active service before they start the weekend duty. Others may do the entire 6 years on weekend duty. During the Afghanistan and Iraq wars thousands of reservists were deployed in-country with their units or on independent assignment. Naw, the real p@#sy is the dude who has never served but feels they have the right to insult a person who volunteered for duty.

I dont know Rosalyn, they say Putin was actually voted in. Like, some of the most mis-treated people on the planet voted for him.

Just spit-balling here, but I'm guessing he was going to win that "election" regardless of the vote count.

I once had to explain to someone that the moon was many many more than 7 miles away and was not always "behind" the earth. Dude thought the moon made it's own light becasue he thought it was always in earths shadow. He then asked me my thoughts about the dinosaurs living inside the earth.

#4 ... well, dish (and others) do subcontract so called market research companies and do in fact collect various data from boxes. Had to do retrofit on the return boxes for comcast, time warner, verizon, dish etc. It wasn't uncommon to pull out add-on boards between HDD and MB which did in fact dial during inactivity hours back to the data collection place. As a matter of fact you do get discount on your monthly bill if you connect your box to the telephone line or ethernet. I never saw camera units installed, but seen quite a few of them in the trash after previous shift. Reflection or not, data collection is a huge business, take a look at Ipsos for starters...

I think the person was responding to a fool according to their folly, and you obviously didn't get it.
