I believe The Refreshments said it best: "Everybody knows the world is full of stupid people." You work with them, you date them, you live with them, and you meet them every time you get on the Internet. Recently AskReddit users shared stories about when they realized the people around them were complete, 100% idiots.
When my girlfriend got jealous on 9/11 because the Twin Towers were getting more attention than her.

In my exchange year in the USA.
I came from Germany, and in class we had this thing where I introduce myself and everyone asks their questions about me and my country.
So this one girl raises her hand and seriously asks, ‘Do you have airplanes over there?’
I was completely stunned by this question and had to calmly explain that i actually flew there by plane…but to this day im not entirely sure if she maybe just trolled me, I mean, you cant be THAT uneducated?!
