Back in the day, I used to see things so neat that I wanted to just stop in my tracks to try and comprehend how someone could think of such a thing — but I never did. But nowadays when I see a display of something that amazing, I just pause and give a respectful smile and a slow nod of respect. Try it sometime!

Here are 16 people who nailed it and deserve the ol' slow smile and nod!

I've always wanted to try this at least once, but I think you have a finite amount of time to try it out before it becomes a bit too obvious.

A few glasses of wine at an paint night can lead to a few squiggly paint strokes. But Bob Ross taught us all one thing: you can fix all mistakes by adding a happy little Godzilla.

3. Why use scissors when you own a turtle?

I never thought about using a turtle as scissors before. You know this guy grew up on a healthy diet of Flintstones cartoons and pet turtles.

Halloween costumes are not my forté — I think I've only had one successful costume in all my years on Earth. Then you have this guy out there crushing the costume game 8 years in a row! Y'know what, I don't even need to know why.

When you stretch your lobe out to this gauge you have few tattoo options. I think I would have leaned towards something Portal-related, or maybe something to do with Narnia — hey, maybe a magic 8-ball! Okay, okay, maybe there are more options than I thought.

6. The game of baseball is no joke.

Although this looks surprisingly cool, I wouldn't want to be the kids that have to lug this thing in and out of a pickup truck. You just know on some future father's day they're gonna get him some folding chairs.

I think we all dislike looking for parking spots. I particularly get annoyed when I get hyped that I found a spot only to see it's just too small for my car — I guess this person doesn't have that problem, though.

Y'know what, this looks ridiculously creative and fun — I want to be friends with this crew. But I bet they're still trying to find this guy, or gave up and started placing missing posters around town.

In my opinion, this dude has already won this year's ugly Christmas sweater contest — and every future ugly Christmas sweater contest ever! Better yet, just cancel the contest entirely and give him a big Christmas bonus.

I respect the work that went into this witty message, but if I can't text and drive, don't force me to read and drive. I'm not too sure what counts as a ticketable offence nowadays.

11. There's no safe place to sleep around your best buds.

I've made it a rule to never fall asleep around friends — to this day, nothing silly has happened to me. But I think I'd be cool with being the half-time show for an entire arena.

We'll run a high-end art show, asking the world's top designer brands to redesign AR-15s to be cool and fashionable. Then when we charge top dollar for a ticket, we'll make a killing.

I want to believe there's a secret fight club for burgermeisters, and this Burger Biker lost in a great burger bake-off to the Burger King mascot — and Burger Biker's consultation prize was this sweet tricked-out bike.

14. I think this future dentist is on to something.

I don't mind going to the dentist, but I think we would all go to our dentists a lot more if they used cute little birds to do all the dental work.

Sometimes, it's hard to find a nice place to catch a nap along a bike trail. Good thing this park installed bear statues for its tired riders to catch some z's — and a perfect pic for insta.

16. Next-level roller skating at the rink.

I've roller skated multiple times in my life, and all I did was go in circles hoping I wouldn't eat wood in front of my crush. Then there's this sly guy effortlessly working the rink! But like, why?
