2006-03-25 [Morrigon]: awesomeness
2006-03-26 [Urmando The Elfling]: Amazing hah, how stupid people can be in Sheep behaviour...?
2006-03-26 [NamelessMerc]: *Steals banner to place in diary*
2006-03-26 [Dark Side of the Moon]: Steal away! Tis why it's there m'dear! Yes, the stupidity of people is unreal sometimes, especially that last one. O.o
2006-03-26 [NamelessMerc]: I'm quite partial to the train one, having had the same problem when I went to Manchester last month to look at Salford University... Damned commuters, think they own it because they wear a suit and carry a briefcase >.<;
2006-03-26 [Dark Side of the Moon]: So very true...
2006-03-26 [The real life Bella Swan]: Its not just trains that they do that on. I hate how people, instead of moving off to the side and staying there, as would be beneficial to everyone, decide to congregate right in the middle of the hallway until the whole hallway is so blocked up you literally have to pull about 10 people out of your way to get through the hallway just to get to class on time. It makes no sense. And why do they do this? Just to sit around and talk, which eventually makes them all late anyway, so then, the next day while trying to get through you have to listen to them moaning and griping about how the passing periods aren't long enough . . . It frustrates me
2006-03-26 [NamelessMerc]: Interestingly, this happened at work today. Trying to pull stock out of the warehouse, I was beset by a gaggle of middle-aged housewives who had nothing better to do than stand there, trolleys in hand (all to aid the blocking process, I assume) and gesturing so wildly that I quite literally had to duck. The look on their faces when my store manager asked them to move, quite politely might I add, was hilarious. I instantly thought of this wiki.
2006-03-26 [Cyto]: You see if I try to get past people either in the hallway or even trying to get up so I can walk off the bus i just get pushed down. So they block by force for me.
2006-03-27 [Dark Side of the Moon]: This is where lack of common sense crosses over into lack of common courtesy. It would make sense to make a pathway so that others can get by, but then they ask themselves the question "Why should I move when they can very well go around me?" One can get around much easier if the blockers would simply MOVE! O.O I feel a little better now.
2006-03-27 [Cyto]: That song isn't new to me. I memorized it berfore it came on this site
2006-03-28 [moonscale]: I have actually had people say 'Why don't you use the other door' when I (very politely) asked to go through.
2006-03-28 [moonscale]: All of my friends and I memorized the llama song, but then we are rather *cough* eccentric to put it mildly. :)
2006-03-28 [Cyto]: Ya. Doesn't just kinda haunt your mind after you memorize it. It's funny accually because word got out that I memorized it and a month ago I sang it ove the PA of my school. It was fun.
2006-04-03 [Dark Side of the Moon]: This song brainwashes people. I had that one part about an orange slaying a rake stuck in my head all weekend. After a while I really wanted to see it happen.
2006-04-04 [Cyto]: Oh I've already see it happen. The orange fell from a the oragne tree my uncle has and it hit the rake toppling the rake over onto its side.
2006-04-04 [The real life Bella Swan]: I don't remember who it was, all have to look it up, but one of my favorite quotes of all time is, "Stupidity is forever, ignorance can be fixed."
2006-04-04 [Dark Side of the Moon]: That is so true. Ignorance just requires a little learning and a bit of change in the thought process. But someone that sucks gasoline through a tube is just stupid. Oh well, no one has to worry about him anymore. He's dead. O.O
2006-04-07 [moonscale]: I think you might be wrong with the safety rules. Yes they are important to protect you, but there are some very stupid labels/ instructions. On a bar of soap: use like ordinary soap. On a hairdryer: do not use while sleeping. On sleeping pills: side effects may include drowsiness. (Why should I take these remind me again?!)
2006-04-07 [NamelessMerc]: I prefer the one on Sainsbury's Cashews: "May Contain Nuts". Well, yeah, I thought that was the point?
2006-04-09 [iippo]: Has anyone actually seen those instructions? I tend to think it's just another email legend (like this 6-year-old girl with cancer... or "Hotmail will cancel your account if you don't send chainletters" *rolls eyes*). The email "stupid instructions" is either made up or there's a 'lost in translation' -factor. (the nut-thing is law, they have to put allergy-info on everything, no matter how ridiculous it might sound.)
2006-04-09 [iippo]: But this wiki is priceless.
2006-04-09 [SilverFire]: Just so someone doesn't make a huge deal of it later, and try to rub it in your face, you spelt 'genius' wrong. o.<
2006-04-09 [Cyto]: and spelt isn't a word, you should use spelled
2006-04-09 [iippo]: Actually 'spelt' is a word. it's an English word. 'Spelled' is American (whatever that language is...) because apparently they don't like cool verbs.
2006-04-09 [Cyto]: Acually Americans speak English too.
2006-04-09 [iippo]: *sigh* I know I was being sarcastic. "Two nations separated by shared language", that deal, you know..? Anyway, irrelevant. Both American and English spellings are correct online (not in academic writing though; so in an English essay in England, 'spelled' would be a mistake...)
2006-04-09 [SilverFire]: <3's La iippo. :)
2006-04-09 [Cyto]: ...
2006-04-10 [Dark Side of the Moon]: Hold on then! I use a LOT of English spelling, though I'm American! And English slang. I just love the Brits. But as for instructions and how to use them safely, I think the dumbest one I ever saw was on a can of deodoroant: "Do not spray into eyes." Look, if your eyes stink that bad, you should see a doctor.
2006-04-10 [Cyto]: Ya I mean if you eyes have some sort of nasal cavetie that allows them to smell that really should be checked out.
2006-04-11 [iippo]: But it sounds like there has been a really crappy translation thing going on in that can. Usually they say something to that effect, like "don't allow the spray to get into the eyes" or "if spray gets in contact with eyes, rinse with cold water" or something like that. It's just that those instruction-th
2006-04-11 [Dark Side of the Moon]: Unbelievable, but true [iippo]. People would rather sue over the way instructions were stated on a product rather than using their damn brain and figuring it out. It's like the time I heard of a guy keeping the rear guard off of his lawnmower because he couldn't be arsed putting it on there. Well, when he backed the thing up it chewed up his foot. Way to go, genius. People know what things say and what they mean. It's just that some would rather be stupid about it.
2006-04-11 [iippo]: I wonder if sometime in the future there will be some kind of common sense tests on people. Like "are you un-stupid enough to have a child" and then if you don't pass the test, you're not allowed to reproduce...? *imagines what a perfect world that would be* :P
2006-04-11 [Dark Side of the Moon]: *groans* I wish there would be. I soooo wish there would be... :^/
2006-04-13 [sequeena_rae]: *worships the llama* >_>
2006-04-19 [moonscale]: Only problem is, sometimes stupid parents have intelligent children, and vis. versa.
2006-04-19 [NamelessMerc]: *Ish living proof* :P
2006-04-19 [iippo]: Now now, Merc, you're not that stupid...
2006-04-19 [NamelessMerc]: Yeth I am *Drool* Meh babbeh ish smarts tho... Gotta be, he gots all his teefs!
2006-04-19 [iippo]: You're just special.
2006-04-19 [NamelessMerc]: By the way, the 'babbeh' isn't real, I'm not a teen parent XD
2006-04-19 [Dark Side of the Moon]: :^)
2006-04-19 [NamelessMerc]: Like the page says "Stupidity Kills" and I know a babbeh would kill meh XD
2006-04-20 [Dark Side of the Moon]: They're more powerful than you think. A baby will work you to death. I don't know how anyone that has three or eight at once ever manages to live. O.O
2006-04-21 [kittykittykitty]: hahaha 'screw the title' made me laugh ^_^
2006-04-21 [Dark Side of the Moon]: XD
2006-04-22 [iippo]: I like that one. At least it shows that you can get sued for being stupid.
2006-04-25 [moonscale]: The rest of the website is funny too, or at least some parts. At the bottom there is more funny stuff.
2006-04-27 [Clairey]: This stuff is funny because its true...hehehe Farding...LMAO
2006-05-02 [Dark Side of the Moon]: Amazing isn't it?
2006-05-02 [NamelessMerc]: Yum... Chickeny good.
2006-05-02 [kittykittykitty]: -_e he must have been greasy and smelling of chicken for days!
2006-05-02 [Dark Side of the Moon]: And finger lickin' good! O.o I should slapped for that...
2006-05-03 [Dark Side of the Moon]: ow... too hard...
2006-05-03 [BinaryPhoenix]: o_O
2006-05-04 [kittykittykitty]: sowwee! *hands her a big tub of ice-cream and a spoon*
2006-05-05 [Dark Side of the Moon]: woo-hoo! Mint chocolate chip!
2006-05-05 [moonscale]: I like Butter Pecan *pulls out magic spoon*
2006-05-05 [Dark Side of the Moon]: A magic spoon? What's it do then? *looks at her own spoon* Mine's only made of plastic. O.o Well that sucks...
2006-05-05 [kittykittykitty]: you... don't like the spoon I gave you? *cries* What's so magical about the magic spoon?
2006-05-08 [Dark Side of the Moon]: It's magical! That's just it! A plastic spoon is just, um...plastic. *ahem* yes...
2006-05-08 [moonscale]: the magic spoon will make the ice cream...ummm..
2006-05-08 [The real life Bella Swan]: *stares at the spoons* Now how so they work exactly? Do you tihnk a flavor and poof! It's on your spoon or do you have to make a formal request?
2006-05-09 [moonscale]: why are you asking me? sheesh, use some "common sense". ask the spoon. *looks superior and walks into a door in the process.*
2006-05-09 [Dark Side of the Moon]: I have just discovered that my plastic spoon is indeed magical! I was eating some rocky road ice cream and thought, "Gee, I'd really love some mint chocolate chip also..." and *poof*! It appeared on the spoon! They like to disguise themselves as plastic spoons and sporks. At least that's what the green elf I keep seeing on my desk told me.
2006-05-10 [The real life Bella Swan]: Well, see? Question answered.
2006-05-10 [kittykittykitty]: oh spooonie? *holds the spoon to her face* Will you make me some marshmallow and peach flavour ice-cream please? *ice-cream appears, then falls off the spoon onto the floor* Oh, not again...
2006-05-11 [moonscale]: YOu have a green elf on your desk? I have a purple dragon! and a green one, and anotyher green one, and a yellow one....and....
2006-06-06 [moonscale]: Yes, Congradulation
2006-06-07 [Dark Side of the Moon]: muchas gracias!! Ooh, and sorry I've not been round to update this. I've been very busy and can only poke my head in for a minute or two here.
2006-06-08 [kittykittykitty]: We'll still be waiting until you add your next anecdote ;)
2006-06-08 [moonscale]: If someone else finds one may they suggest it to you?
2006-06-09 [Dark Side of the Moon]: Oh, I don't mind suggestions! But, there is a place for those willing to post a rage against common sense: Common Sense Llama Vent. I'd like to see someone else's ire at idiocy.
2006-06-10 [moonscale]: i meant if someone found an ancedote actually, but no matter. I haven't.
2006-06-10 [The real life Bella Swan]: Oh, I've deffintely got one of those. It happened at my school too. The sophomores were right in the middle of testing, which meant we had to stay in our first period class for and hour and a half longer than usual. That makes it a total of two hours and twenty minutes that we were supposed to be in first period. Ten minutes before they were supposed to finish the fire alarm goes off and the whole process starts over again. Now I wasn't too phased about it, as I'm a junior and didn't have to take the writing test, however, every single sophomore had to start over with a new subject and format, even if they had finished. Why? Our french teacher decided she wanted some popcorn.
2006-06-10 [The real life Bella Swan]: Instead of pressing the automatic pop button like most poeple would do, she decides to leave the bag in there for 7 minutes.
2006-06-14 [BinaryPhoenix]: o_O
2006-06-15 [kittykittykitty]: Wow. That must have royally sucked for all involved
2006-06-17 [The real life Bella Swan]: Like I said, I wasn't test-tacking, but every single sophomore was pissed.
2006-06-29 [Fireblade K'Chona]: ...hello! I took the liberty of adding myself to the list.
2006-06-29 [Dark Side of the Moon]: Welcome! Make yourself comfy!
2006-06-29 [Fireblade K'Chona]: Oh, thank you!
2006-08-25 [The Scarlet Pumpernickle]: Ha! Finnaly! Some Common Sense! Woot!
2006-08-26 [Dark Side of the Moon]: It's a nice thing to have isn't it?
2006-11-22 [moonscale]: woot! first emoticon on this page! I think that last one is the best so far... arrested with a joint behind his ear?
2006-11-22 [Dark Side of the Moon]: Yes, what an idiot, huh?! Emoticons, woo-hoo!
2007-01-04 [PredatorX]: Hey, I want one of those crappy .gif T-shirts too! :D
2007-01-04 [Dark Side of the Moon]: Hang on, sending one to you now. :)
2007-01-04 [PredatorX]: W00t!
Looove the rants, by the by! Haven't read them all, but I'm enjoying them!
2007-01-04 [Dark Side of the Moon]: Oh good! Glad you're enjoying it. I really need to find some more material to add to this thing.
2007-01-04 [PredatorX]: I'll ga-ladly give you ideas.
As... soon as I get them that is >.>
2007-01-04 [Fireblade K'Chona]: You know, whenever I hear the Bible referring to people as sheep (I go to a Catholic school. 'nuff said.) I want to stand up and go, "I am not a sheep! I am a llama!"
...besides, I have never liked sheep. Ever.
I do like goats, though.
Wow, clearly I'm still not awake yet.
2007-01-04 [The Scarlet Pumpernickle]: lol and clearly you're missing the point of the reference. The "Sheep" in the Bible refer to the people of God and how they follow him because he is the Good Shepherd. It's an extended metaphor. There's the parable of the Sheep and the Goats as well. Matthew 25:31-46.. just in case you wanted to know. :P
2007-01-04 [PredatorX]: Aye, but nowadays the Shepherd leads a herd of wolves if you ask me...
2007-01-04 [Fireblade K'Chona]: No no no, I know it's a metaphor! I've been going to Catholic school since KINDERGARTEN, I know more about the Catholic Church than I ever wished to know. >.< Bet you don't know how many books St. Augustine wrote! He wrote 3 major works of Catholic literature! These and other useless facts are things I must learn for my Catholic History class. Bleh.
....I have gotten no sleep whatsoever.
But anyway, I don't like the metaphor because I hate sheep.
2007-01-04 [Dark Side of the Moon]: The metaphor that I used, comparing people to sheep, applies to human behaviour. Have you ever watched sheep? They're absolutely ridiculous and will all move together in a deranged wad if someone says 'boo'.
2007-01-04 [The Scarlet Pumpernickle]: pretty much. That's why they need a shepherd. It's pretty funny if you ask me. ...my mom has this thing for sheep. .. it's odd. :P
2007-01-04 [Dark Side of the Moon]: I think they're cute, especially lambs.
2007-01-05 [moonscale]: I was attacked by a killer sheep! I was sitting innocenlty on the top of a mountain eating my sandwich when a perfectly ordinary sheep sideled up. It glared hungrily at my sandwich I I realized, this is no ordinary sheep! This was an attac sheep of doom! And I was right. Within moments it charged and nearly pushed me over the hundred foot cliff.
heh. *cough* yes...absolute
2007-01-05 [iippo]: A sheep that wouldn't run when something scared the flock would soon be an ex-sheep and a current dinner for a predator. And that would be one really stupid sheep.
2007-01-05 [PredatorX]: "...and a current dinner for a predator"
I don't like sheep... =/
2007-01-05 [iippo]: What, to eat sheep or to wear sheep?
2007-01-05 [PredatorX]: Neither. I don't like sheep cheese either...
2007-01-05 [The Scarlet Pumpernickle]: ewww... never heard of it. I only like Cow cheese. :P
2007-01-05 [Hiuko]: I like blue cheese. especially the blue cheese with fuzzy stuff on it. The fuzzy stuff makes it cuddly
2007-01-06 [moonscale]: Goat cheese is good.
2007-01-06 [Fireblade K'Chona]: I love goat cheese!
...I love most cheese, actually.
2007-01-08 [Dark Side of the Moon]: I saw a guy feed a cheese sandwich to a police horse once. It didn't knock the guy over getting it though. Never had sheep's cheese [PredatorX], though I imagine it would taste much like goat cheese. Kind of "barnyard" flavour about it, but really good stuff. tee-hee, fuzzy cheese! *pets it* Anyone know who Wallace and Gromit are?
2007-01-08 [iippo]: Wallace and Gromit are awesome, that's who they are :P
2007-01-08 [Dark Side of the Moon]: I've got the Wallace and Gromit theme running through my head now...
2007-01-09 [The Scarlet Pumpernickle]: lol...ever seen the curse of the wer-rabbit?
2007-01-09 [Dark Side of the Moon]: Yay! I LOVE that movie!
2007-01-17 [Cyrano meets Merso]: lol.contact me if you want to.I have a bunch of those!
2007-01-18 [moonscale]: Moon cheese is easily the best.
2007-04-01 [Hiuko]: What's with the stop? What no more funny stories on the reduced common sense of people?
2007-04-02 [Dark Side of the Moon]: I'm very sorry. I've been busy lately with many things and haven't had the time to beat up on the intelligently unsound. I haven't forgotten this wiki though! Will try to put something up here soon. :)
2007-04-03 [Hiuko]: okay, just wondering what happened.
2007-09-03 [Death Dragon]: These are . . . not funny, persay . . .
You could submit these to the Darwin Awards! I love that website.
