ok, mob has me on a roll today...

this is the thread where you post completely obvious and well-known facts that someone did not know.

for example:

me and some friends were standing around. a girl complemented me on my big white sunglasses. i thanked her and told her that on amazon, they were actually called "jackie o. glasses".

this guy asks "who's jackie o?". everyone stopped what they were doing and looked at him in shock. "what, don't look at me like that, am i supposed to know?"

i mean, come on. that's like living in the UK and not knowing who princess diana was.

ok, your turn :)

A bunch of us were playing the game Apples to Apples. For those who don't know, quick explanation:

-One person throws down a green card with an adjective on it
-everyone else throws down a red card with a noun on it
-the person that threw the green card picks the noun the adjective fits best in his or her opinion

so...the green card was "Cool" and was thrown down by this guy. I was like "perfect...I'll throw down Miles Davis"

So he picks up the pile of red cards and goes through them. He gets to my card and says "I don't even know who Miles Davis is."

I was shocked and got all "you don't know Miles Davis?!!"

I was the only one though....

I think I mentioned this somewhere before...but we were discussing holidays one day at work (more specifically the ones we are allowed to take off with pay), and one co-worker said, "I can't wait till next year when Thanksgiving is on a Friday. That way we get a three-day weekend." We actually thought she was joking at first, but someone else finally said, "You do realize that Thanksgiving falls on Thursday every year, right?"....she had no idea...

Ha! Nice! Even better, on more than one occasion, I have heard someone ask, " What date is the 4th of July on this year?".

adamnikyo didn't realize that toilet paper was used after pooping to clean his butt. he said to me, "oh, i always wondered why there was a cylindrical tube with paper surrounding it next to me. I figured it was for grabbing onto when I had to squeeze out a tight one."

I used to work with this rather dingy lady named Karen. She was really sweet but just kinda dumb. Anyway, she was on her senior trip in high school in Washington DC and they were waiting in line for a tour of the White House. Here's a rundown of the conversation:

Boys in front of Karen in line: "Man, I can't wait to get in there and see the blue room-that's gonna be so cool."

Karen: "What's the big deal about the blue room?"

Boys in front of Karen in line: "You mean, you don't know? It's where all the first ladies are stored."

Karen: "What do you mean, first ladies?"

Boys in front of Karen in line: "It's where they keep all the past first ladies that are dead. They keep their bodies on display in there. They call it the blue room, well, cuz they're dead."

Karen: "ewww...gross".

So they get into the blue room, she looks around, and screams "Hey, there's no dead people in here!"

True story.

I go to a Catholic high school and I used to have this asshole religion teacher in 10th grade (I'm a senior now). He was about 58 years old - pedoesque - ponytail - hunched over @ 6'1

So one day, he's telling us about how important it is to help disabled people and all this shit. Then he asks the class if we know any disabled people.

I raise my hand and honestly tell the guy that my older brother has severe learning disabilities.

In all seriousness, he asks me if my brother wears a helmet.

I started to laugh and asked why?

He's totally offended by my laughing and says, "so he won't hit his head against the wall."

I had to get a temp in to help with a large shipment one day. A few of the packages were going to Alaska. I showed her how to use our FedEx account online to generate shipping tickets for domestic shipments and told her to come get me if she had any questions. She walked over to my desk 15 minutes later and asked me where the "International Shipments" section was on the website as she couldn't find it. I informed her that we weren't set up for international shipments and that it wouldn't matter because all of the shipments she'd be working on were domestic. And then she responded, "But what about Alaska?"

Giving her the benefit of the doubt, I assumed she was concerned that Alaska was not part of the Contiguous United States and would be considered an international shipment. I assured her that since Alaska was a US State it was considered a domestic shipment and she would be able to select "Alaska" from the drop down menu.

And she said, hand to God, "Alaska's a US state? When did that happen?" Oh, it should be noted that she was a business student at UCI.

Also, I thought that thing about orthodox Jews and bedsheets was true for a long time. My mother told it to me when I was young enough not to recognize what a sponge for misinformation she is, and I never thought to consciously reexamine it because it never came up in conversation. Until one day it did.

I think when I was in 1st grade, my teacher had been talking about slavery, and at one point, I asked, "Would we have been slaves back then? Wait... We're black right?" My classmates went on to inform me that none of us in the classroom were black. The whole Hispanic thing was really confusing for me.

There was this kid we knew in school for years & he got along with just about everybody. It was either freshmen or sophmpore year. He & some buddies were talking about sexual conquests & what not. He made some comment about how he was gonna stick his balls in this chicks pussy so he could cum inside her. DEAD SILENCE. They all looked at him real fucked up of course. All akward he replied something like What don't you guys know thats where your sperm come from. One of his close friends set him straight with a porno to borrow the next day. Of course he was the object of ridicule for a very long time afterward. To this day I sometimes wonder where his mind was during sex ed class in junior high.

Jokes on me for this one... I was working at a Starbucks in Target for 2 years, before walking to the store one day before work I stopped and looked at the logo.

Before that moment, I never quite connected the bulls eye with the name... I felt incredibly smart for a few minutes... Until I realized I was mostly incredibly lame. lol
