I have to I don't think #42 is all that dumb, it might take me a while to figure out if it was just Family Guy cut scene humor.

I feel better after seeing that one about how Obama isn't a billionaire, and can't pay for the bailout.  #4

I just read the first one.  It's clumsy, but I think the person is asking if the Pink Panther is a Mountain Lion, which it is.  A panther, puma, cougar, catamount, and mountain lion are all the same animal.

The one dealing with the guy trying to get a pickle out of the jar was pretty funny.

I thought those were all good except for the guy who is trying trying to be an obvious asshole wearing the mask over his eyes on the plane.

Came in here to say this, but you're a little off the mark.  A panther isn't a specific species, it's a several species of cats (leopards, jaguars, and cougars).

They used to be classed as felis concolor. Now, they're puma concolor. I say "used to" so I looked up when the change occurred. It was 1834. I have no idea where I ever learned that it used to be "felis concolor".

On a related note at lunch today I was told I should be a history teacher because I knew with certainty what the Revolutionary War was.

/Someone tried to say they were thinking of the French revolution.
//I wish I'd asked which one.

Seen a few of them before, but they're still funny. Most people out there aren't as smart as the average person.

The genus Panthera is not what I was pursuing the specific North American concept of using panther to describe a what some call a mountain lion and other call a puma or a cougar.

If I had to guess what the person was getting at, it wasn't "is the Pink Panther a member of the genus Panthera like lions" because you can be a member of Panthera and not be a lion.

But we're reading text conversations from morons about cartoon animals so we've already put more thought into this than they did.

We celebrate it because people like having excuses to drink overpriced margaritas at 9a.

I actually did this when I was setting up my TV with an OTA antennae. Everything was in Spanish and not being familiar with how channels work on OTA TV I just assumed I was going to the wrong ones. After a few minutes I saw the SAP button and facepalmed.

This site may be better than the man-hating BoredPanda. It can be entertaining but the amount of man-bashing on that site gets outrageous sometimes.

I watched a few minutes of The Expanse with the subtitles set to god knows what. I thought they were speaking Belter until I figured out what had happened.

I was watching a Hindi drama, after a while I realized I wasn't reading the subtitles and I still understood most of what they were saying. "Holy cow!" I thought. "I've learned Hindi through immersion!" Then I paid attention and realized they were mostly speaking English with a few Hindi words mixed in. I felt like a total tool.

A kid's mystery book I read long ago, set in the 1960's, had a scientist use the term 'Felis Concolor Kaibabensis', though he may have been joking with the last term, since they were on the Kaibab plateau near the Grand Canyon.

There's a reason Trump delayed the initial stimulus checks by a week to get his name on them - nobody knows his supporters better than he does.

I once overheard two adults at the zoo trying to puzzle out whether they were looking at a tiger or a lion. A little kid told them that tigers were striped. The adults were amazed.

#2 has some context. The Korean director in question had just made the movie Snowpiercer, with some Korean actors, but most of the movie was in English. So why did he switch back to making a Korean movie where everyone was speaking Korean?

I don't want to believe this is true.

I don't know how one makes it through life not knowing that information. Like, it isn't mere willful ignorance or lack of curiosity. I'm not even sure it would even be possible to raise a kid without them knowing that fact. It would take a conspiracy like The Truman Show.

You can't even get mad at the adults in question. Either they legitimately had incredibly strange lives, or they'd have to be so dumb that a lifetime of being presented with tigers and lions never resulted in learning.  That would require like a 1 percentile IQ.

So weird. I'm genuinely curious now and wish I could meet and interview them. One could do a radiolab type show about people who somehow managed to have such common knowledge completely pass them by.

This was at the Taipei Zoo. The child knew, the adults didn't. Taiwan developed really quickly, so the typical level of education changed rapidly as well. That is, it was common to meet adults who were illiterate because they didn't get much schooling, whereas now the children are expected to go to university. Still, I was surprised. I would have expected that even people with little formal education would know what a tiger looks like.
