Knowledgable Boss Is Underestimated, Proceeds To Win Tech Support

We've seen our fair share of bosses that never should've been put in their places of power in the first place. With that being said, it's nothing short of deeply satisfying to see a boss show the rest of the world why they were given the reins like they were. This boss pulled off some straight up tech support magic, and left everyone else in speechless awe. Pretty awesome that she was able to extract that number in under 8 minutes. You don't even need to know what that means to appreciate the timely manner with which she pulled it off.

Forget frozen pizza; science has finally created a slice that can last three years on the shelf before going bad.

No, it's not DiGiorno. It's a ready-to-eat meal — known as a MRE — created for the military. In combat zones where field kitchens are not an option, soldiers rely on these meals, which don't need to be refrigerated or frozen.

Belligerent Customer Won't Cooperate With Tech Support

Sometimes you're having a conversation with a human being that you otherwise thought was perfectly rational, and not prone to fits of blind and entirely irrational rage, and then they pull a fast one on you. This particular customer opted for being a waking nightmare. Fortunately, the tech support employee who fielded the situation kept their cool, and it all worked out in the end.

Tumblr Thread: Roombas Are Beautiful Beings

It's weird. Humans have this ingrained proclivity to attach themselves to the most unexpected objects. Like, for instance, a Roomba. You never know. You find that Roomba cleaning up your perfect mess and suddenly you're infatuated with this beautiful piece of technology.

17 Past Proclamations That Aged Like Milk

Everyone's got 20/20 hindsight, but many are blind when it comes to predicting outcomes and sharing takes that stand the test of time. It's not always fun to look into the past, especially when you're the one with the embarrassingly wrong analysis immortalized forever on subs like r/agedlikemilk. For us passive observers on the other hand, this stuff is mad entertaining.

And that wasn't the only sad fact the study found:

- 77% of respondents could not identify what SEO means. SEO stands for "Search-Engine Optimization"
- 27% identified "gigabyte" as an insect commonly found in South America. A gigabyte is a measurement unit for the storage capacity of an electronic device.
- 42% said they believed a "motherboard" was "the deck of a cruise ship." A motherboard is usually a circuit board that holds many of the key components of a computer.
- 23% thought an "MP3" was a "Star Wars" robot. It is actually an audio file. - 18% identified "Blu-ray" as a marine animal. It is a disc format typically used to store high-definition videos.
- 15% said they believed "software" is comfortable clothing. Software is a general term for computer programs.
- 12% said "USB" is the acronym for a European country. In fact, USB is a type of connector.

We smrt tho. Wee promiss.

Company Won't Hire Employee Directly, They Live To Regret It

The most mind boggling part about this scenario might be the fact that the boss had the audacity to call and ask questions about something their ex employee used to do for the company before they were asked to leave the company. Like, you burn a bridge, you can't proceed to walk over it. Check out another professional revenge with this customer who flooded an unresponsive ISP company with tickets

25 Cringeworthy Posts People Thought Were Deep

Social media can be a good thing. Sites like Facebook and Instagram allow people to keep in touch with family and friends - a luxury that people are learning is incredibly important as the world copes with the Covid-19 pandemic. But there's a darker (and untintentionally hilarious) side to being able to share images with your followers. We're talking about the fact that people can hit the "share" button and share convoluted memes and posts that they seem to think are ultra deep. You know, "We live in a society" type sentiments. They often have to do with some very teenage feelings about loneliness and dating, and, even worse, the negative effects of the same technology they're using to share their "deep thoughts." The r/im14andthisisdeep subreddit is an impressive archive of these kinds of posts, a veritable hub of cringey thoughts that, frankly, we can't help but eat up. We've put together some of their latest and greatest offerings, but you can enjoy some more of this content here if you end up craving more.
