A survey (you know, those things that are always totally accurate) recently revealed that of 500 young adults polled, 33% of them were in favor of breaking up with someone via Facebook, email or text. Oh the humanity! Or should I say, rise of the emotionless machines!
It comes as no surprise that with the never-ending influx of gadgetry and tech-nerd advancements you can connect faster with people you loathe and flirt on-line with gross mouth-breathers. You can 'unfriend' and block people or you can find out exactly when and where they're doing their laundry thanks to FourSquare. There are so many ways to slam and slight people or creep them out by engaging in light stalking (which is viewed as harmless because its on-line).
But the absolute worst new habit we seem to have picked up in the digital age is the trend of being completely ball-less (yes ladies, you too) and soulless when it comes to ending a relationship appropriately and memorably. I was born in a bygone era known as "The late 70s" and had to wade through the murky waters of my teen and young adult life without the aid of an OkStupid profile. Folks, breakin' up is hard to do but there is a level of civility and creativity that comes with ending a relationship. We put a lot of effort into it in my day. It was a call of duty and we rose to the occasion.
There's a lot of hype surrounding your city's "must eat" food. I mean let's face it, Americans love to shove food in their faces and so an excuse to travel the country while sampling the local fare is not uncommon.
But a lot of the local signature dishes don't really live up to the hoopla surrounding them. There's some interesting back story to these foods and sure, we'll eat them and then we'll eat them again. But today we are debunking the belief that these foods are totally awesome. In fact, they're kind of dumb, so find out why and see if your precious edible made the list.
It's business as usual at a Home Depot until two cross-dressing shoplifters decide to put more nuts and bolts down their pants. Watch what happens when the store turns into a drag race in this clip from truTV Presents: World's Dumbest.
While the rest of us sit here and do the opposite of work, let's watch some people punch in for overtime and try to get through obstacle courses on Wipeout, a new show that premiered this weekend on truTV! We think this obstacle course is pretty challenging because the contestants sure don't make it look easy.
Let's start with Mr. Excitement!
For someone caught in the act of breaking and entering, this crazy dude sure does think he deserves a ton of favors before he goes to jail. Watch this wild clip of a civilian taking down a chatty cat burglar from truTV Presents: World's Dumbest.
Usually people get run over by trucks on accident. This record-setting dude from truTV Presents: World's Dumbest invites them to roll over his abdomen.
Watch a crazy drunk driver get hauled down to the station in this clip from truTV Presents: World's Dumbest. But just know this one's not going down without a fight- with himself.
Sometimes people just have to express themselves, strip naked and interrupt traffic. Usually it's someone you don't want to see but motorists in Hollywood luck out when a dumb disgruntled adult film actress runs into the intersection in this clip form truTV Presents: World's Dumbest.
If you're going to dream, dream big. Like, real big. Like, boobies the size of basketballs big as you're about to see in this clip from truTV Presents: World's Dumbest.
Try not to get creeped out by a dumb dude who clearly has no respect for the elderly in this clip from truTV Presents: World's Dumbest. Let's just say this guy is not at all afraid to turn into his mother one day.
