Easy death defying tricks

The good ol people on have made quite an interesting list. Basically it's a list of things you would have to be pretty dumb to even attempt because it looks like you could get killed despite it being very easy. It all is based on simple psychics like how if you lie on a bed of nails your weight is spread out. Though if you lie on just one nail you quickly realize how sharp a nail can be. This article is a pretty intressting one and something i would expect from cracked it's worth a view.  It gets a 7/10 on exploring the internet

The best of not always right is a funny site where normally employees talk about some dumb things their customers done from being obnoxious, to illegal , to just dumb not always right has a great collection of some really funny stories so check out the very humorous site. Here are some of my favorite stories-

Give One, Get One Free

Restaurant | United Kingdom
(I’m waiting in line after ordering a cheeseburger. Another customer is being particularly annoying.)
Server: “Your cheeseburger’s ready sir. That’ll be £2.80.”
Me: *handing over money* “Thanks.”
Other customer: “Hey! Why’s he getting his first? We were here first, that’s mine!”
Server: “He ordered a cheeseburger. They’re quicker to make than double bacon burgers. Yours will be done in a minute.”
Other customer: “I want that one! That one is mine!”
(I nod to the server, and they hand the woman the burger.)
Other customer: “This has got cheese in it! And no bacon! Are trying to rip me off?!”
Server: “You said you wanted that one rather than what you ordered.”
Other customer: “This is appalling! I’m going elsewhere. You can’t get your orders in the right order!” *slams cheese burger on van shelf then walks off*
Server, to me: *smiling* “Would you like a free bacon burger with your cheeseburger?”

Loony Over A Loonie

Gas Station | Ontario, Canada
(I am ringing out an American girl. Keep in mind Canada uses coins for $1 and $2.)
Me: “…and your change is $3.64. You have a wonderful day.”
Customer: “Excuse me, you didn’t give me the right change.”
Me: “Yes I did.”
Customer: “No you didn’t. You only gave me coins, no paper.”
Me: “Ma’am, we’re in Canada, and here we use coins.” *I hold up a $1 coin* “This is a loonie, and is worth $1.”
Customer: “What’s a Canada?”

Don’t Ask Her What Size She’d Like

Grocery Store | California, USA
(I am ringing up a customer. She has bought one large jug of ice-cream, a bag of chips, and dip.)
Me: “Did you find everything okay?”
Customer: “Just fine…. just fine.”
(I notice she’s looking me over up and down, but I try to ignore it.)
Customer: “How are you so skinny?”
Me: “Sorry?”
Customer: “How are you skinnier than me? It’s so unhealthy!”
Me: “Uh, well I’m normally like this. I exercise, and I try to stay fit.”
Customer: “Oh, so you’re saying I’m not!? I can’t believe this. Just because I’m buying ice-cream and chips, doesn’t mean I’m unhealthy!”
Me: “I know it doesn’t ma’am. I eat ice-cream too.”
Customer: “Wait, you do?”
Me: “All the time, ma’am.”
Customer: “Oh… no wonder why you’re more bigger than me. You should take care of yourself more.”

Watashi Whaaa

Music Shop | United Kingdom
(I really like Japanese animation and am learning Japanese as a second language so I listen to a lot of Japanese songs.)
Customer: “Excuse me, what kind of music would you recommend? I want to know what CD I should buy.”
Me: “Oh, I don’t think I listen to the kind of music you’d be interested in.”
Customer: “That’s not very helpful. Just tell me what kind of music you like.”
Me: “Well, I listen to a lot of Japanese songs.”
Customer: “I love that song!”
Me: “It’s not just one song. There are a lot of songs in Japanese.”
Customer: “Really? How many.”
Me: “Oh, far too many to count. There are thousands!”
Customer: “Well that’s a bit silly, isn’t it, what’s the point in making songs in a language that no one can understand?”
Me: “A lot of people understand Japanese.”
Customer: “Like who?”
Me: “The people who live in Japan?”
Customer: “You mean Japan’s a real place?! Well, you learn something new every day!”
