I used to think that losing faith in humanity was really dramatic. As I've gotten older, I've realized it's really easy to do. As much as the internet tries to boost our faith with cute pictures and feel-good stories, cringeworthy disappointment is never too far away.

1. Face to the palm

Is this for real? I actually might start to cry. This youngling needs a music history lesson and an introduction to Queen, stat!

2. Save them, grammar police!

The English language is hard — I get it. However, we learn this by the age of 5. I'm pretty sure Google could find a refresher course.

3. Me too

This was worse than a horror movie promo. Even scarier, my kid sister wants to see it. My mom can't even use emojis properly. Please, not a movie!

4. What?

This is a cool buy, I'll give it that. However, with that much money to dish out, you could probably get a matching set for much less. Buyer beware.

5. She doesn't even catch here!

I know not everyone can be the very best. 18 seasons later, Ash Ketchum is still trying. If you don't get the reference, restart the game.

We don't need any more of those. We need more women who can think outside the box. For example, someone to figure out teleportation and automatic cooking robots, please!

No one should ever lie about food. It holds a special place in too many hearts. There is nothing worse than anticipation followed by such a low blow.

Now this Nutella treat will never get through its circle of life. It's like a horror version of Toy Story with food. Don't worry, I still love you!

Now, this is a story all about how her head got flipped, turned upside-down — I'd like to take a minute, just sit right there... I'll tell you about how Will Smith IS the Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air.

10. Noooooooooo!

Does cruelty know no bounds? Bubble wrap has been there for me when no one else has. It's joy in the purest form. This awful new kind will pop my soul.

When I was younger, I used to think that swallowing a watermelon seed turned you into one. I probably would have believed this, too. Hey, Hollywood! Next movie?

13. I honestly had a good chuckle over this, and then a sad feeling crept over me as I realized something...

I once asked my mom what night Saturday Night Live was on.

14. At first glance, your faith in humanity may waiver ever so slightly, but upon further inspection, it almost doesn't seem to be that dumb of a question.

15. Awww, baby girl, naw.

Them's called books. You can do some good readin' with those, with all the words and such. Besides, $30 for three VHS tapes in this day and age is ludicrous!

16. Talk about being "reborn."

How embarrassing. Although this doesn't even come close to that Tinder poo story, it still makes my top 10 list of incredibly humiliating things that have actually happened to people.

17. Before you go thinking this is a dumb question, I bet it could literally be a Jeopardy question posed to a group of Geography teachers and they still wouldn't know.

18. For the love of all that is good in this world...

Are we seriously that far removed from a landline? Actually, wait. CELL PHONES still have the pound symbol. Welp.

Okay, so this list can go on and on, yet apparently the question posed below was much too difficult.

20. If that got your attention, you should also read about Youth in Asia. 

Bless this guy's heart for trying to stay woke. Let's keep reading in schools. You will use it in the future.

I would feel guilty for taking up so much space. I also wouldn't trust this as a sanitary place to nap. I guess some people live dangerously!
