History isn't written by people who know when to quit.

I don't know if that's actually true, but it sounds good, so I'm going to stick by it. Plus, it fits the whole schtick that I'm going for with this article — looking at people whose actions and behaviors maybe take things a little further than we'd normally expect.

1. There are different kinds of moms.

2. Hey listen, Wikipedia, don't promise if you can't deliver.

Goodness knows I spent a lot of time on Wikipedia learning about obscure things, or researching musicians I don't actually know anything about, and this is the first time I've ever seen them stumped.

3. When you really want to get that "paper plate at the picnic" vibe, but you've got a ceramic budget.

I bet that if you look in this person's cupboards, they've got artisanally crafted glassware that's designed to look like a red Solo cup.

4. This is seriously painful to look at.

We've certainly looked before at cringe-worthy times adults have tried to relate to kids, but I think this may actually be the worst text message that's ever been composed.

5. I'm certainly no barber, but I'm really feeling like something's a little bit off here.

Then again, we all need some kind of trademark to stand out, right? So who am I to criticize this guy for having possibly the most recognizable hairline of all time?

6. Sometimes a bargain is just way too hard to pass up.

And a bargain that's followed up with an extremely dad-level pun is just about the peak of what humanity is capable of.

7. I don't know whether this is true or whether someone's just lying to get attention on the internet, but either way, I'm here for it.

Don't you think that the teacher would think it was suspicious to have someone just staring at a poster on the wall all the time?

8. Apparently, this rental has something called a "shower room."

Reddit | dipitinmayo

Now, I don't know what kind of fancy bougie lifestyle you're living, but I've never even heard of a shower room before, let alone one with a fireplace in it.

9. This is taking that kind of older sibling "stop hitting yourself" bullying to an extreme.

Or maybe when you're an only child, you have to kind of take on this sort of role for yourself.

10. Suddenly, the person sitting next to you in class chewing their gum loudly is no longer the most obnoxious person in the room.

Reddit | girolski07

This is honestly the most hipster thing I've ever seen, and I'm not sure whether I love it or hate it.

11. Human creativity can be a truly incredible thing. Other times...

Reddit | MarySueSide

Well no, it's still truly incredible. It's just that "incredible" can mean a whole lot of different things.

12. "My autistic son hates his photo taken, so I let him wear a t-rex suit for family photos." —RoamingMagnolias on Reddit

Reddit | RoamingMagnolias

Now I'm thinking about all of my old family photos and regretting that none of them went like this.

13. This guy is absolutely raising the bar for what kind of shenanigans people get up to when they're drunk.

Reddit | anoobsters

Usually I'm out here making an idiot out of myself, not contributing parts of my body for people who are struggling with cancer.

14. This may seem tragic, but I'm choosing to believe that it's actually fulfilling this guy's lifelong dream to be tackled on a professional football field.


I'm not here to judge people's dreams. I'm just here to help them come true.

15. I'm not sure whether this woman needs an OB-GYN or an exorcist.

Reddit | I_AM_HE_WHO_IS_I_AM

Or, y'know, I can just relax and let people have a good time. But I think we both know that that's not going to happen.
