I've done some pretty silly things in my life, but nothing compares to what I've seen people do on the internet.

I've also considered myself clever from time to time, but nowhere near as clever as some people I've discovered online.

Basically, I'm trying to say that I'm both intelligent and, well, not, just like the people below.

3. Colgate has zero tolerance for people who call it "teethpaste."

I think they do know it.

4. "Work smarter, not harder." —Riley, age 12.

I'm more concerned about six-year-old "Jac" (or "JQC," kids could be named anything these days) and his military-grade "Shooter B40." 

The kid's dreaming up international defence weapons before he can spell his own name.
