The Funniest Stupid Questions People Ask Online

We live in an amazing time where all the knowledge of the world is right at our fingertips. If we choose to do so, we can learn about the disappearance of dinosaurs, make a custom tiny robot in under an hour or chat with your long lost cousins a couple of continents away. However, what most people choose to do with this power is ask some rather stupid questions and make us all lose a little bit more of our faith in humanity with each one. Whether they’re just trolling or really don’t deserve to be called human beings is questionable, but there’s one thing we’re quite sure about – they’re as funny as hell and more often than not slightly disturbing. Take a look at some of the stupidest questions people asked on Yahoo.
Turtles and Orange Juices
We’ll start things off with one of the most random questions out there that is still as popular now as it was the day it was posted. So, in a careless act, this somewhat older lad managed to get bitten by a turtle back in the days, which made him contemplate life and think about his diet choices. Apparently, there’s a rumor going around that you mustn’t drink orange juice if you’ve been bitten by this ferocious slow green animal or it will cause you to mutate. While we’d really like to think that this is just a random troll with way too much free time on his hands, you should never question the potential for stupidity among the Yahoo users. We hope the lad is feeling better now.
Teaching Dog about Sex
For this Yahoo user, there’s no such thing as boundaries when it comes to human-animal relations. This genderless user obviously feels that he is responsible for his dog’s sexual education, but needs help from the invaluable Yahoo community on this. One of the main questions that will inevitably come up here is whether you should use the birds and the bees analogy or does it need a change? Another important question that we also need to ask ourselves is whether the user asking the question should be taking some pills.
Now, here is a great example of what happens when you combine religion and video games. One of the pillars of every fantasy video game is summoning various creatures to do your bidding, but sometimes people think it can also be implemented in real life. This guy decided to take matters into his own hands and single-handedly cure cancer by summoning one crucial figure from the Christianity. Needless to say, he might be a bit delusional, but hey, there’s no harm in asking, right? Right?
Picture of a Sun
Speaking of stupid questions to ask, here’s one dude who took misunderstanding to a whole new level. Obviously, someone told him when he was young that staring directly at the sun is bad for the eyes and that he should in no way attempt to do it. What that someone, however, failed to do is tell him exactly why. Because of that, this person (or maybe a troll, who knows?) started to believe that even a picture of a sun can be quite harmful. You could see the logic behind it as the computer screen really radiates light and hurts our eyes in the long run, but for all the different reasons. Thankfully, Yahoo advisors are there to put his worries to rest.
Sometimes the technology goes so far that people forget the most basic of things. While turning the computer wallpaper into a mirror sounds ridiculous enough, it’s actually the second sentence this user uttered that really put him on the list. First of all, why would anyone even want to turn the monitor into one giant mirror? The idea is to see pictures, videos and other stuff, and not yourself. Besides that, this magnificent human specimen even claims that he has tried to scan a mirror and set it as the desktop background. Obviously, this didn’t go as planned.
While most of these stupid Yahoo questions are just extremely funny, some of them are also rather upsetting. For example, this weird user asked a question about the lung capacity and got everyone worried. While the purpose of this question can be both of sexual and of criminal nature, either way, it’s disconcerting. While some of the users on the platform tried to offer an honest answer, others went a step beyond and suggested the use of chloroform. The main problem with this is that you can never know who’s joking on the web and who’s just being his demented self.
Black Crotch Problems
We’ll end this amazing compilation with one rather silly question that has crossed everyone’s mind at a certain point. This concerned young lad seemed agitated by the dark hue of his nether region and decided that the best course of action would be to ask a bunch of random strangers on Yahoo about it. He even goes on to blame his different (?!) masturbation techniques for it. However, the cream of this cake of craziness is the fact that he’s worried about what his wife would say when he gets married sometime in the (distant) future. One could even say that the entire question is actually racist, but we shouldn’t go so far.
There you have it – the Yahoo’s brightest strike once again. Which one of these stupid questions do you feel deserves the very top of our list? Let us know if you’ve come across some that may rival these ones.
