“Stupid people don’t always know that they’re stupid. They might be aware that something is wrong, they might notice that things don’t usually turn out the way they imagined, but very few of them think it’s because of them. That they’re the root of their own problems, so to speak. And that sort of thing can be very difficult to explain”.―Jonas Karlsson.

People are dumb. Wait, no, the phrase I’m looking for is actually “people are strange”. Well, how about both? There is no denying that there are some pretty dumb people out there—that’s something pretty obvious for those of us who spend a lot of time in public. There aren’t many things worse than overhearing people say something jaw-droppingly dumb and not being able to have a rebuttal. But, it happens to us all, and we’ve just got to accept people for who they are. And, maybe, just maybe, try talking them through their words. Here are some of the dumbest things people have heard someone else say, as told by Reddit.

1. What is the Closet Star?

I was at a trivia night, and the question was “What is the closest star to Earth?” As I’m writing the answer down my coworker says “Well it’s either Venus or Sirius”. I was stunned. “Well, one of those is a planet, and I’m pretty sure if there was a closer star than the Sun…. we’d know”.
