It's Only January, And Here Are All The Bizarre Things People Have Done This Year!

The mindlessness of the human race knows no bounds. I don't mean to be condescending, even if I sound like that, but sometimes, people do make me question their (and my own) level of smartness. To prove a point, we're only about 20-something days into 2018 and people have already done enough stupid things to last us the year. Here's a list of all the things that only go on to show that evolution sure is coming for the human race!

1. Our Nation Lost Their Chill Over Padmaavat

The whole nation lost their collective cool over a movie that is supposed to be a work of fiction anyway! The movie was banned from certain states and the matter was taken to Supreme Court. Women from Chittaurgarh also threated self-immolation if the movie was released and Sanjay Leela Bhansali had to use VFX to cover up Deepika Padukone's waist in a song. *sigh*

2. Tide Pod Challenge

After the cinnamon challenge and the choking game, the teens are back at it again. This time with the Tide Pod challenge. People all over the internet are challenging each other to bite into these detergent pods and then tape themselves eating it. Do these kids not realise it's poison? Really?

3. Candy Cane Pizza

We were horrified by pineapple on pizzas and biryani with ketchup. But nothing comes close to the horror of seeing melted candy cane on a pizza! Why would you do that, why?!

4. US Government Shut Down

The United States Of America might want to cancel 2018. The US Government shutdown, which began on January 20, 2018, happened over the failure to pass legislation to fund government operations and agencies. Just a bad phase, eh, guys?

5. Ridiculous Baby Bangs


He got nominated. I got bangs. #criticschoiceawards 💙

Emma Roberts debuted her baby bangs on the red carpet of The Critic's Choice Awards and let's just say, this is the last time we'd like to see this trend!

6. Thigh High Uggs For Men

I cannot even begin to describe them. What? Why? How? Just look at them and see for yourself!

7. H&M Posted A Really Racist Image

H&M really dropped the ball this year when they posted an image of a young black boy wearing a hoodie with the words 'coolest monkey in the jungle'. No cultural sensitivity or what? Even The Weeknd called them out for the lack of judgement.

8. An Undercover Journalist Managed To Get Aadhar Details Leaked

Think the government has your information safe? Well, you are wrong! Aadhar details of one billion Indians were sold for a measly five hundred rupees to an undercover journalist in a sting operation. What a sad, sad day!
