40 Things Basically Everyone Does But Doesn’t Talk About

Have you ever aligned your feet to the tiles so you won’t die? Me too. Now let's see what everyone does but no one talks about in this hilarious list compiled by Bored Panda.

40 Things Basically Everyone Does But Doesn’t Talk About

There’s nothing quite like being in your own company. It’s a pure judgement-free zone⁠—no pressure to show off, no expectations met by reality, no strange looks given as you’re voicing all the nonsense out loud in an empty room.

And interestingly, some of the most unusual behavior happens while we’re on our own. In fact, the things we do are so random, we don’t really talk about them. Ever. Like doing a remote trace or aligning your feet to the tiles so you won’t die.

Bored Panda has compiled a list of all the odd things we all do but never dare to tell, not even in truth or dare. And you know what? It's better off that way.

Humor plays a vital role in younger generations’ communication and media consumption. But Gen Z and millennials are renowned for what’s called absurdist, surrealist, and often dark comedy full of dank memes and observational one-liners.

In order to get this sense of humor, one has to understand the context in which the youngest generations came to live. In the past decade, the world has been bursting with information which is “both more accessible and less reliable,” writes The Washington Post. “Brands pose as a friend on social media to millennial consumers, and the line between real and artificial matters less than it once did.”

Another explanation is that such surreal humor is a response to a world that has stopped making sense. According to Andrew DeYoung, the director of 555 and editor on The Eric Andre Show, the Adult Swim school of comedy is designed to “reflect the frenetic distribution of information on the internet.” And that’s why most of their shows are so chaotic and absurd.

Since there’s no time for a narrative joke to be said online, traditional punchline structure doesn’t work. “Instead, things are funny because they are willfully jarring and strange,” writes Rachel Aroesti for The Guardian. Weird Twitter and bizarre dank memes are perfect examples of how millennials break down the joke, decontextualize it, and create utter randomness.

Person Tests Scammer’s Patience By Pretending To Be Not The Sharpest Tool In The Shed

Jicamarcababy took the swindler on a wild ride that involved Farming Simulator and pocket fries, wasted his time by pretending to be dumb and melodramatic, and posted the entire back-and-forth for us to enjoy.

Person Tests Scammer’s Patience By Pretending To Be Not The Sharpest Tool In The Shed

Scammers can be very imaginative in how they try to bamboozle people out of their hard-earned cash. But the people who fight back against scammers and give them the runaround have the patience of saints and are the true masters of creativity.

Take Imgur user Jicamarcababy’s story as a great example—when a scammer tried to swindle him out of his money by pretending to be his boss, he didn’t panic and he didn’t ignore the messages.

Instead, he took the swindler on a wild ride that involved Farming Simulator and pocket fries, wasted his time by pretending to be dumb and melodramatic, and posted the entire back-and-forth on the internet for us to enjoy. So scroll down, feast your eyes on how some people deal with brigands and cads, and read Bored Panda’s interview with Jicamarcababy, dear Pandas! And if you want some more stories about people trolling scammers, check out our posts right here, here and here.

Jicamarcababy shared the conversation between him and a scammer pretending to be his boss

The Imgurian clarified a few things before posting the rest of the conversation

According to the Imgurian, the whole message exchange with the scammer took 3 to 4 hours, but he used a burner phone number for the conversation and took screenshots of it which is why it looks like the conversation took only 11 minutes. He also pointed out that he didn’t actually do any of the things he told the scammer about: he simply sent them photos that he found on Google.

Jicamarcababy told Bored Panda that his first reaction when he got the scammer’s email asking for his phone number was a massive eye roll. “They were pretending to be my CEO but the sender’s name was completely wrong, so it was apparent from the start that it was baloney,” he said.

We were curious whether Jicamarcababy shared the story with the scammer with his colleagues. “I actually got laid off temporarily from this job due to the pandemic but was kept on file for potential contracts/freelance work, so I didn’t tell my coworkers, but the fact that I was laid off and the CEO wanted to talk to me was… suspicious.”

It’s not the first time that somebody tried to scam the Imgurian. “I actually got one of these emails a while back, and I actually went to the store. When I got there they explained that they wanted gift cards, and I knew it was a scam and felt immensely stupid for going to the store in the first place. This was sort of revenge for my past self as well as others who get these messages.”

The Imgurian’s conversation with the scammer got a lot of people’s attention. In less than 13 hours, more than 129.8k people saw the post and over 3.2k people upvoted the story.

Scammers will say just about anything to trick you out of your money

The Federal Trade Commission warns that gift cards are the “number one payment method” that imposters demand from their marks. Scammers can pretend to be anyone just to trick you: from family members who supposedly have an emergency on their hands to government officials or even public utility company representatives. Or they might even try to swindle you by saying that you won a contest.

If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Scammers will try to manipulate you by appealing to your hopes and fears, trying to make you act emotionally. Remember—they will say _anything_ to get your money.

The best thing to do would be to ignore scammers, block their numbers, and report them if you don’t feel like wasting their time for some laughs. But if you made a blunder and paid a scammer with a gift card, the first thing that you should do is call the card company and report that it was used in a scam.
