Diply 13 Jun 2017

It's no secret that there are some stupid people in this world, but are they really all that dumb? Isn't it all just relative — you know, a matter of perspective?

Well, yes and no. These posts are probably some of the dumbest things I've seen on the internet, which is saying something, but my challenge today is to bring you a different sort of view.

Let's see if we can't find the light in these dim posts...

Look, he's not wrong. Maybe instead of "kinda," he should have said "exactly," but ultimately, yes, he does look like Will Smith — because he is Will Smith.

17. Does subtweeting count as an extracurricular? 

Reddit | mxdtrini

If so, then this person has something extra to beef up their Ivey application. If not, maybe cite theatre, 'cause that tweet was pretty dramatic.

18. The fewer steps, the better.

Why waste precious time unpackaging a doorstop when you can put it straight to use?

Bonus: This also keeps your highly valuable doorstep in mint condition.

Look, nature does do some pretty magical things. But um, carving George Washington's face into a mountain is a little out of nature's wheelhouse.

But humans are natural beings and we created this, so technically, Anthony, you are correct.

22. That is a weird looking parrot, Kevin.

If we were to assume that bird was a parrot, it would be pretty strange-looking for a parrot, no?

Kevin sure has an eagle eye for detail.
