Show me a person who claims they never talk nonsense and I’ll show you a liar. Silly words falling from our mouths is what makes us human.
But preaching ignorance in an attempt to persuade others? Not so much.
Recently, Redditor GuyWithAScuffedLife asked other platform users: “What is the dumbest thing someone has said with full confidence?” And boy, did that question resonate with everyone!
So far, the post has received nearly 1,500 comments, many of which prove how easy it is to make a fool of yourself.
That being diabetic is something you can DO at home, and an addiction that is not suitable to DO when in public.
Yes, someone told me that in full confidence.
“If evolution is true then how did a human man evolve perfectly to match a human woman.”
As if they evolved separately then met up one day.
I was told by a teacher that lots of people have diabetes and I need to get over it, it’s not that big of a deal.
“Informed people don’t make better decisions than uninformed people. That’s a myth.” He wasn’t joking.
I was in a high school history class and we were talking about Freud. Our teacher asked if any of us knew what penis envy was. One student who was straight faced and way too confident answered “it’s when one man is jealous of another man’s penis size”. Comedy gold.
A woman yelled at me for parking a car with a handicap tag in a non-handicap spot. She believed that I had to park only in handicap spots.
“It’s FAA law that there can only be one Christian pilot per plane. That way when the rapture comes, the other guy can land the sinners left on the plane safely.”
This was in college. Not a religious college. She said this like we were the stupid ones.
In my sex ed class in highschool, we had an assignment where we had to name all the parts of the male genitalia and this one girl said (with a nasty attitude, might I add) “men don’t have bladders!”
If you wash your hands in the hot water you don’t need soap. Hot water will kill all germs
“If pregnancy were really that challenging and such a burden, the human race would have died out a long time ago.”
Yes, it was a man. Yes, I still know him.
Not sure if this counts, but one time my little brother walked up to me and awkwardly asked “is the cat dead” as he held our cat, who was purring…
A coworker of mine once told me that any animal could reproduce with any other animal, that DNA wasn’t important and that all sperm was the same.
She believed this because she once saw a litter of diseased, deformed puppies and had decided that they must be half rat.
Was told by someone that Australia doesn’t exist cuz we don’t fit on the flat earth……… we were in Australia
When I was in high school, a girl who sat in front of me in one of my classes asked me what the word “intelligent” meant. I laughed because I thought she was joking.
Someone I was having a conversation with said that Dinosaurs exist in Korea. They said it like it was a fact…
i have diagnosed ADHD. my friend once told me i didn’t have it and was lying because i didn’t bring fidget toys to school
Being Bipolar is a choice. Yea sure it is sweetheart. I don’t talk to them anymore
My grandmother always believed whenever we saw a rain clouds in the distant she would be upset(being a farmers wife) because she thought the clouds were sucking the water out of the ground. My mom set her straight but I don’t think she believed her though
“I didn’t know Hitler was Australian.” If you didn’t get it, I would gladly tell you the full story if you want to.
“I thought the turtle would eat algae. That’s what my koi did.”
The baby turtle was kept in a small glass bowl without algae. It also didn’t have UV light, and was fed shrimp, the turtle equivalent of living on desserts. I got it a perching spot in an aquarium, UV light, water heater/thermostat, and real turtle pellets.
This person otherwise comes off as fairly bright, and sustains himself with his own businesses. The differences between fish and reptiles apparently didn’t really hit him.
One time I was sitting with a patient, he was bit by a dog, his leg was torn up pretty bad, he couldn’t even walk. As I finished bandaging him, he said “it’s fine, I can walk” and he got up, and fell on his face
They just proved the other day the earth is only 6000 years old…
A kid really believed and tried to convince me that in the movie Jaws there were 2 little people inside the mechanical shark peddling to make the shark swim and attack. He truly believed it to
I told a guy a few hours after a terrible date (needed to calm down) that it wasn’t going to work between us. Two days later I get a text saying he had a long hard conversation with himself the day after the date and, long story short, he didn’t think we were compatible to date right now.
Completely confident that it was his idea. Just gonna let him think it and be glad I never have to deal with again.
Maybe the thing about injecting bleach into your system to kill the coronavirus
This one girl was talking to me about a girl who’d had many relationships with other girls throughout her entire life, saying: “We all had that phase, she’s still a little bit confused obviously.”
You don’t have learning difficulties or mental health you were made to think you do by teachers.
This coming from a man who in his youth taught kids with special needs.
I had a guy in middle school spend like two hours over a day trying to convince me that the speed of a fart is greater than the speed of light
He thought there was some special speed for things that have smell and that it’s faster than light… But… You know, it’s just a gas. Also I’d never spoken to the guy before that day, like it was completely unprompted.
Gay people choose to be that way. Yup they wake up and think, well life is good I feel like being abused for no reason.
I made an argument about humans dealing with dinosaurs during a discussion, please don’t laugh at me
A friend once told me that all cancer was a completely man made phenomenon.
Wisdom teeth are there to replace teeth that fall out
Someone told me you could get to Hawaii by boat in 20 minutes because it’s right off the coast of California.
I think he was looking at one of those maps that had Alaska and Hawaii in the bottom left corner and thought that’s how it really was.
My friend told me if you had a test with 101 questions and you got them all wrong, your score would be a -1. Yeah, I’d love to see the grade calculators handle that one.
“You are not getting a single penny out of me” Scammer threw around 14 (civil and criminal) lawsuits against me and my family clearly being on the wrong against a single one of ours and lost all of them basically going bankrupt on the process
My buddy said he’s topped his Mazda Miata at 240mph. I made sure to clarify it was mph and not kph.
I once drove past a car park being demolished with my mum in the car. The demo crew were spraying the structure with water to keep the dust down, my mother, bless her insisted they were doing it to soften the concrete.
Discussing religion with two Christian friends (Brother and sister duo) – I’m a nonbeliever and they were in your face jerks about it. These two are pretty much why I hate discussing religion.
The sister said something like “I bet you don’t even know how many apostles there were!”
I said “Twelve.”
The brother shouts “Ha! Wrong! It was seven!”
To her credit, the sister immediately facepalmed. And I kid you not when I say this is my actual response: “So, was it Doc or Dopey that betrayed Christ?”
I had just moved into a new place and had a roommate told me that women who get raped while drunk deserve it.
I’ve had a few moments like this.
I live in the USA. When I was 5, I watched a lot of stuff about China and heard the word a lot growing up. In my first week of school, my music teacher (for some reason) tested our knowledge and asked us what state we lived in. Everyone else shouted our state name. I, with all confidence, exclaimed, “China!” Everyone was laughing. I’ve been a quiet child since.
Over ten years later, I’m on a vacation with my family and we stop at a hotel for the night on our way home. I was half asleep and had recently seen the movie “Into the Woods” not long before. The opening song was playing in my head (the one where the characters are stating their predicaments and constantly said, “Into the woods~”). My dad turns and asks me a question. I, with very tired confidence and not having heard a word he said, exclaimed, “Into the Woods!” My family still makes fun of me about that today.
Them: “How do you make gulag?”
Me: “Make what?”
Them: “Gulag? Like the soup?”
Took me a few more minutes that gulag is a Soviet labor camp and not a type of soup. The worst part is that this conversation took place in the middle of a world history class. Fml.
You’ll never find anyone who will love you more than me.
If that was love, I shudder to think what hate was like.
Highschool debate class Everyone discussing how every dude jerks offs
Girl: my bf doesnt, ever.

Girl: of course I do long pause …but I’m American
