17+ People Who Figured It All Out

Paddy Clarke 2 Apr 2020

Creative thinking and an ability to intelligently work out solutions to complicated problems is one of the main things that sets us apart from the animals... or, so I've been told, I've honestly never seen anyone demonstrating this kind of critical thinking in my personal life.

However, one place that is a hive of intelligent people putting their minds to complicated tasks and working together to figure them out is the internet. Well, that and pictures of cats, people doing stupid viral challenges, and people generally hurting themselves... however, all of that aside, please allow me to present to you 17+ people who figured it all out!

1. "11 yr old daughter drew this out of the blue. Looks like she's got the future work-week figured out."

Reddit | type_your_name_here

This 11-year-old is wise beyond her years! I particularly like the Sunday face, but I think that is because that is how I look 24 hours a day, 7 days a week!

2. The Creation Of Salad

Twitter | @AkilahObviously

I think that quite frankly, the person who invented salads just generally hated the rest of humanity, teeth and all!

3. "Wife went to a pirate-themed bowling event but she didn't want to dress like a pirate since she figured everyone else would. So she went as a cannon."

Reddit | Mailing_a_Bear

Well Shiver my timbers, it must have taken real balls to go dressed like that!

4. "Wine-o... Polo!"

Twitter | @DulmesKenzie

I can tell you for a fact that this is a lot sadder if you shout "Marco", and then pretend like you heard someone say, "Polo" from the wine section, but really you're alone and just want an excuse to get wine.

5. "My nephew has some things figured out."

Reddit | dpotter05

One thing is for sure, they're not wrong! They should get extra marks for ingenuity!

6. Millennial Problems

Twitter | @EwdatsGROSS

I was actually doing quite well until the last one; I mean, there's no way anyone can do that... it's physically impossible.

7. Amazon Recommendations Are The Worst

Twitter | @GirlFromBlupo

Treat yo self! Why not have a different toilet seat for every day of the week? Keep your guests on their toes!

8. "Today my friend tried axe-throwing. It ended quite unexpectedly."

Reddit | Hypognosis

Throwing axes so that the sharp part sticks into the wood is how amateurs do it, this is how the pros throw axes!

9. The Best Mode Of Transport

Twitter | @AbbieEvansXO

They're missing the most obvious benefit of the hawk method, and that is the fact that you can simply wear a mouse costume outside without being judged. I'm sick of being judged for dressing up as a mouse in public, just let me live my life!

10. Self-Discovery

Reddit | @KevlarYarmulke

Laminating is an incredibly satisfying thing to do, as I think all of you will agree? Who wouldn't want to skip recess to do that?

11. "Four years since installing the 'Scissor Antitheft Device.' Nobody has figured out the flaw yet."

Reddit | Jobyn

How has no one realized yet that you can just disassemble the table, unhook the string, and then take the scissors with you? Idiots!

12. It's A School Night

Twitter | @danielleweisber

I like that there are other adults out there who still refer to Monday-Thursday evenings as "School nights", I feel validated.

13. "I spent 5 minutes trying to figure out who Tom is, and what his onion picking skills have to do with my sandwich."

Reddit | Humblebee89

Did you work out what was going on here? I had no idea until I read the person who posted this' explanation:

"For those that don't get it, it's an abbreviated list of what I ordered on my sandwich. Mustard, Lettuce, Tomato, Pickles, and Onion".

14. Simba The Hypocrite

Twitter | @TheGladStork

You brought this upon yourself son! You should think about what you really want in life before doing elaborate dance numbers about it!

15. "My neighbours an asshole. I figured this note was appropriate."

Reddit | BigJB3

I like the message behind this note, but I'm not sure if it isn't too polite? Although, I guess they did do the classic standing their windshield wipers up at least, which is something.

16. "Couldn't figure out why the snooze button wasn't working."

Reddit | spootay

Is there a reason why you're leaving so much hand lotion next to your bed? You know what, actually, don't answer that.

17. Karaoke Struggles

Twitter | @isabelzawtun

Aside from the length of the song, that is a great karaoke choice. However, the best karaoke song is Wuthering Heights by Kate Bush, end of discussion.

18. "My cat figured out how the fridge works and now he's turnt on fresh, crisp water."


Before you know it that cat will be using the microwave to make itself ready meals and pot roasting a chicken.

19. "This guy can't figure out why the drive thru line hasn't moved for a while..."

Reddit | thedudeabides85

It is surprising how many people actually do this. But, the big question is, if you see someone doing this, do you tell them or let them sit there?

20. Stop Doing Things!

Twitter | @KevinFarzad

Much like school nights, weekends are for relaxing, ordering takeaway, and drinking far too much wine!
