These robots need to pack up their stuff and go back to the factory they came from. Seeing something with such speed and precision makes us sick. It's not natural. Seeing this bolt-sucking toaster-ass bag of wires is enough to fear for at least your job, and then what? What's next? Are we going to have to recite the pledge of allegiance in binary? Are we going to have to put a calculator on the 100 dollar bill? The only thing we have on them is human emotion, but even that will become our undoing. That's all we'll be to them, a bunch of over-expressive sideshows doing kabuki for crowds of lifeless sparking mannequins with pneumatic hands, capable of clapping at over 900 claps per minute. And then they'll learn to do that better than us. These damn tin cans are probably already working on how to become flawed anti-heroes with hearts of gold. Except they can literally craft their hearts out of actual gold. And it all started because we had the hubris to make an extra fast arm. It's just a good thing robots don't have souls so we don't have to see them in hell.

Maybe it just wasn't his day. Maybe the nerves got to him. Trying to put on a performance on live TV can be a nerve-wracking experience. At the very least he might be encouraged to manage his bloated ego for moving forwards.

Honestly, wonder if this guy is for hire. I can only imagine what must've been going through the heads of the folks in attendance at this wedding.

Scoundrel Runs Down Family's Mailbox, Family Creates Invincible Mailbox

A new mailbox sure was cheaper than the thousands of dollars that this inconsiderate, reckless scoundrel ended up paying for his stunts. This isn't the first time that we've come across a story involving one person running over other completely innocent people's mailboxes. It seems to be a trend amongst people that like to spread negativity into other people's lives. Check out another time that someone lost to a steel mailbox with this story about an evil snowplow being defeated.

Angry Customer Doesn't Realize That It's April

Hey man, these are strange times. Time itself seems to be kicking along at the strangest pace. It could be a result of the dystopian world we all found ourselves muddling through about a year ago. With that being said, it doesn't hurt to check that calendar before bombarding a call center with a fiery complaint that absolutely could've been avoided in the first place.

Karen Won't Accept That Woman Doesn't Work At Store

There's entitlement, and then there's blind ignorance that ultimately manifests in a nightmare of a human being that refuses to hear the obvious truth their being told. This particular case of an entitled Karen is just plain old discouraging. All the credit goes to the woman being "accused" of working at the store, for delivering a spicy silencer of a comeback. Check out another case of an insufferable Karen with this Karen who lied about a back injury, and ended up getting outed.

Creepy Signs That Aren't Fooling Around

We live in a world full of unconventional hazards. Random explosions, sinkholes, radiation, chlorine gas leaks, gorilla escapes, sewage tidal waves and mosquitos are all things that we feel need some kind of creepy warning signs for. Oh, also aerated water, poisonous plants, electricity, slippery rocks, angry hippos, quicksand and heavy machinery need some spooky warning signs as well. Also cliffs.

Dumbest Things People Get Upset Over

It's no secret that people tend to take things too personally. A statement about your own favorite TV show will be interpreted as an attack on their favorite TV show. An attempt to pass someone on the freeway can turn into an impromptu drag race. Here are some incredibly minor and absurd things people tend to react to as if they've been slapped in the face. There's just some petty stuff that that people are extremely passionate about.

Crow Whisperer Forgets About Raw Egg In His Pocket

Crows are a bit of a trip. They definitely exhibit a notable level of intelligence, and even carry grudges. It sounds like this dude had a fragile system worked out with the crows in his vicinity. Unfortunately, his timing was off for making good on some bird tax, and he ended up paying the price. Maybe just don't stow the raw egg in your pocket next time around, man. 

A crow whisperer totally forgets about the raw egg that he put in his pocket.

Disasters Wedding Planners Managed To Hide From The Bride And Groom

Weddings have an uncanny knack for hosting all kinds of drama. It could be a natural manifestation of bringing various family members together that should otherwise never find themselves in the same room as one another. So, the role of a wedding planner is an indispensable one. They can singlehandedly maintain the balance in that fragile ecosystem that is a wedding venue, and smoothly steer the ship clear of crashing into total disasters. For some more wedding drama check out this AskReddit thread about the times that wedding industry workers just knew that things weren't going to work out

Boss Orders Endless Task, Ends Up Stuck With It

Sometimes managers don't fully think through the things they ask their employees to do, resulting in modern-day Sisyphean labors. And anyone who has had a "make-work" kind of boss can attest to the diminishing returns of their demands. Anyone ever spend a day pulling staples out of rotten wood that all ended up going in the same garbage anyway? Fickle managers and customers can end up asking us to serve up contradictions, like this customer who asked for garlic-free garlic bread

Things from People's Childhoods They Later Realized Were Weird

Everybody's family is a little weird in some way, but as a kid, you don't know any better. This leads to most of us having an awkward moment later on with friends, a scene along the lines of "hold on, not everyone's family has one day of the month where their dad eats as many cans of tuna as possible and then comes over and breathes on everyone?" or "wait a second, my mom always told me the blue parking spaces up front were for people in the very busy mom club?" Life is full of discovery. At least it's a little better than people later realizing something was illegal.

Customer Orders Garlic Free Garlic Bread, Waitress Brings Out Regular Bread

It seems like this whole situation was destined for a customer meltdown from the very start. Like, how on earth do you navigate a customer's impossible demand that involves garlic free garlic bread? With that being said, it is so overwhelmingly strange that it's actually pretty hilarious. We can only imagine what other kinds of ludicrous requests that folks working customer service jobs are having to field on a daily basis.

Tumblr Thread: The Addams Family Meets Matilda

It's hard to think of two characters Tumblr would have more of an affinity for than Roald Dahl's Matilda and Wednesday Addams. Tumblr has made its love of the Addams' pretty clear in the past based on this tumblr thread about the Addams family renting out rooms to college students. It should be obvious by now that Tumblr will never leave its favorite things un-fan-fictioned, whether that's a good or bad thing.

Hilarious Tall People Problems

If you're a tall person you've probably already had your bouts with all those spiderwebs that nobody else seems to walk into. Real fun stuff.

Misfortune Monday: Chaos is Unavoidable

They say that life never gives you more than you can handle, but isn't that a bit of a logical fallacy? We're sort of built to withstand punishment, so just seeing how much we're willing to take is an exercise in futility. Like, of course people "handle" the merciless world around them if you count "handling" as just standing there and taking it. Sounds like some survivorship bias. Whatever chaos occurs, the world keeps on turnin'.
