While some people are frantic in the midst of chaos, others can keep their cool even when the pressure cooker is turned on high. There is a certain breed of human beings that can handle any bizarre or weird situation with ease, and we don't know how they do it. From letting a raccoon sit on their chest to posing for a picture while their house burns down, we commend these individuals for keeping their cool. Maybe we can all learn something from these people who made the best of anything that was thrown their way.
1. When The Cow Doubles As A Projection Screen
It's the latest in moo-vie theater technology. These guys couldn't find a projection screen, so they decided to use the cow that was hanging around instead. The cow and the people seem really unbothered by the fact that they are watching a movie on the side of a live animal.
We wonder what they will do if the cow decides it doesn't want to stand there anymore. They might have compromised on the video quality, but they can get fresh butter for their popcorn right from the source.
2. "Let's Wait Till He Wakes Up To Eat Him"
This man seems awfully comfortable around these cheetahs, and they seem unbothered by his presence as well. Maybe he raised them, and he is reintroducing them to the wild without abandoning them completely.
However, if he fell asleep there not knowing the cheetahs were lurking, he is about to wake up to the surprise of his life. If you run in front of them, you are prey, but you are their friend if you take a nap with them; it makes perfect sense to us.
3. Moments Before And After Disaster
This man was so excited for his bus tour and had to take a selfie when they stopped on the side of the road. Just a few moments later, the bus crashed, and he decided to take a second selfie telling a much different story. He is lucky that he lived to tell the tale.
How he survived without any scratches is a mystery, but we would love to know how this escalated so quickly. Apparently, the driver was speeding, which caused the bus to flip. It's safe to say that his vacation is not going well.
4. There Are Two Types Of Girls In The World
Some girls like to get dressed up for events like homecoming and prom, while other girls like to keep things more low-key. This must be what happens when a wild gamer girl ventures out of her home and into the real world.
Now that we are older, we would also enjoy staying in our pajamas to eat chips instead of getting all dressed up for a dance that no one will care about in a few years. Does this remind anyone else of their own high school experience?
5. Must. Scratch. The. Cat.
This man has his priorities straight because he is giving attention to his woman while petting the cat, which is really the most important thing he has to please. Everyone knows the cat is the real ruler of the house, so you shouldn't cross them.
It's a typical man move for him to go straight for the cat. One day she will find out and realize he loves the cat more than he loves her, and she will just have to accept that. What she doesn't know won't hurt her for now.
6. Just Act Natural
"Everyone act natural. If we don't act suspicious, they might not notice that we are towing a UFO." This person is way too casual about driving with an alien spaceship attached to their car. What would make this even better is if he was blasting the X-Files theme song.
We wonder where this man is headed and if he knows anything about the secrets inside Area 51. This man is actually named Cayote, and he runs a flying saucer retrieval and repair spot. His junkyard looks like it is the supplier for a low-budget alien movie from the '50s.
7. Lazy River: Flooded Street Addition
The streets might be flooded, but this person decided to make the most of the situation. When he remembered he had an inflatable raft in his house, he blew it up and decided to take it out for a ride. He brought his umbrella just in case, and it was one of the most relaxing afternoons he had in a while.
The news happened to be in the neighborhood reporting on the storm, and he floated by at the perfect moment. While everyone in the neighborhood seemed stressed out by the flooding, he felt like he was on a lazy river at a water park.
8. "I Have A Pretend Gun, And I'm Not Afraid To Use It"
When you lose your gun, but you don't want your boss to find out. We don't know what kind of situation these police officers were facing, but if it were anything serious, this man would be in big trouble without an actual weapon.
What is he going to do if the person they are trying to stop has a real weapon? Will he point his finger gun and say, "pew, pew?" Despite not having a weapon, he seems unbothered by the situation. Unless he is very good at hiding his emotions.
9. Nothing To See Here... Just A Man And His Raccoon
"Does your boyfriend usually bring his pet raccoon everywhere?" "What do you mean? He doesn't have a pet raccoon!" This man encountered a woodland creature while enjoying a day on the lake, and it decided to join him on his tube.
We would be freaking out if a wild animal decided to come that close to our face. Those things have all kinds of diseases, and who knows what it would do if that man makes any sudden movements. Maybe they all drank too much to realize it is a raccoon and not someone's dog.
10. They Finally Found Nirvana
These monks are much more modern than the ones we imagine in our heads, and they seem to have found a different kind of nirvana than we thought they were looking for. Who knew monks were looking for the band Nirvana all this time.
People don't seem to be confused by the fact that there are a group of monks hanging out in public. In some parts of the world, it must be more common for people to see monks hanging around like it is nothing out of the ordinary.
11. A Regular Day In Central Park
What? Don't act as you have never seen someone dress up as the bolder and Indiana Jones and run through Central Park before. In New York, weird things happen all the time, so this is probably nothing new for the people hanging out in the park unless they are tourists.
These people were probably putting on one of those interactive performances where they try to get the crowd to join in. Those are always so awkward because no one ever wants to participate, but the actors are beyond insistent. We wouldn't want to take part in this Indiana Jones reenactment.
12. The Joys Of Home Insurance
When your house and all the belongings inside are burning right before your eyes, but then you remember that you have great home insurance, and it's all going to be covered. If our house were burning like this, we would be freaking out about all the things that couldn't be replaced by insurance.
Are these people related to that girl from the meme where she posed in front of a burning house? They look like they would get along well because few people would happily stand in front of a burning house and smile for a picture.
13. Modern Problems Require Ancient Solutions
While we can't say what was really happening in this situation, it seems like two different time periods have come to duel. The small group in the middle looks like they are from ancient Roman times, while the large group of riot police is from the present day.
It's possible the group of ancient Romans figured out time travel and accidentally dropped themselves into the middle of a present-day riot. If that happened, it would explain why they put themselves in that shielded formation.
14. That's An Expensive Way To Put Out A Fire
We always thought firefighters used fire hydrants for their water supply. However, this picture is giving us another explanation. Maybe in wealthy towns, the firefighters use bottled water to put out fires, even though that would be a costly and ineffective way to save people.
If we saw a firefighter standing in line with all that water behind us, we would let them go first in case he had to get to an emergency. We are surprised no one else is staring at him as if that is out of the ordinary.
15. As Long As He Makes It To Prom
If we try to dissect this picture, we can see that the UPS driver knows he is going to be fired, the police have no idea what happened, and this boy is bringing his sewing machine to the prom. Maybe he loves fashion design, and his Singer sewing machine is the love of his life.
While we could figure out most of the situation in this picture, we still don't know why he is posing in front of the disastrous scene. Maybe he was walking to meet his actual prom date and happened to stumble across this and thought it would make a good picture to remember the night.
16. Hello From The Other Side
There is always that one friend in the group who always seems to be like the fifth wheel because they have another group of friends but occasionally decided to hang out. The person on the outside of the glass is definitely that friend.
It's possible that he is the only one out of his friend group that forgot his mask, so he couldn't go inside the store. This was the only way to sit with his friends without getting in trouble.
17. The Demon And Her Children
Is that Mystique from X-Men, or are those children being watched by some kind of demon lady? They don't look like they are afraid of the woman, but we can't say the same for ourselves. It's creepy that you can only see her eyes and nothing else, even though it looks like this picture was taken during the day.
Does anyone else have the irrational fear that if they stare at this photo long enough, the demon will focus on you? Hopefully, you aren't reading this in a dark room in the middle of the night because that would make it even more terrifying.
18. She Must Be Watching A Triple Feature
When you have finally given up on caring what people think and decide to watch a movie at the theater the way you have always dreamed. It seems like this girl bought tickets to a full day of movies and wants to be fully prepared with enough popcorn and soda to satisfy her for hours.
If this isn't your ideal way to watch a movie, then you probably aren't dreaming big enough. If we could get away with bringing this much popcorn and soda into a movie theater, we would also stay there for an entire day to enjoy as many movies as possible.
19. When You See The Shadow...
Although this boy looks completely happy while sitting on the swing, his shadow tells a much darker story. It's like when you make plans with friends when you are feeling social versus when it actually comes time to go through the plans.
If only he knew what his shadow looked like. He would probably be terrified by the thought that this is on the internet. Hopefully, people knew this was just an accident and this was not a serious picture.
20. That Must Be A Very Engaging Book
Whatever book this guy is reading, it must be riveting because he is completely ignoring the group of riot police behind him. They are obviously headed towards a tense situation, but that isn't phasing this guy.
It must take a lot of concentration to ignore what is going on behind him because that is definitely not a quiet situation. It's possible he is wearing tiny noise-canceling headphones that we can't see in this picture.
21. "Everyone Slither Around For A Selfie"
If you are anything like us, you are probably afraid of snakes in pretty much any capacity. Even seeing this picture freaks us out, and we don't know how this man is so calm when four snakes are slithering around his head as he takes a selfie.
He must be a parseltongue (someone who can speak to snakes) because that is the only way he would be able to tell the snakes to gather around for a sss-elfie. This man is way too casual for us to believe it's real.
22. Sir, This Is The Ladies Room
In the famous words of Jack Nicolson, "Here's Johnny!" Did this man want to see this inside of the woman's bathroom so badly that he decided to ram his head through the wall? Even though some random guy's head is in the wall, these girls don't seem phased.
He must've been plastered in more ways than one. He probably tried to recreate a Kool-Aid man moment, but the wall was too strong for him to burst through with his whole body. We can guess that his head was killing him the next morning when he started to remember what he did.
23. "I Can Fix It"
We aren't car experts, but we know enough to say that this man probably shouldn't be standing by the burning car. We understand it is a vintage car, but there is no way he can save it by looking under the hood. He should grab his groceries and get out of there.
What's even more concerning about this situation is that no one else seems to be worried that there is a car on fire in close proximity to them. Hopefully, no one was hurt in this incident, and the man got away from the car before the fire escalated further.
24. How To Sneak Your Dog In Anywhere
"Oh, this? That's not a dog; it's my new scarf that happens to closely resemble a live animal." They didn't want to leave their dog at home, so they tried to smuggle him into the movies in the least discreet way possible, but it looks like the movie theater let him in.
He is such a good boy for standing still like a statue, so people would think that he is a scarf and not a real dog. We would be nervous that our dog would get distracted, jump off, and run away.
25. Caught Red Mouthed
Although everyone at the club is probably too drunk to notice, this girl clearly made out with the guy in the background. How else would they have the same shade of smeared red lipstick on their faces? We wonder how long it took her boyfriend to notice that she made out with another guy.
Her boyfriend probably looked at her and said, "Why is your lipstick smeared all over your face? And why is that guy wearing the same shade?" It's safe to assume that their relationship didn't last long after this night.
26. The Dark Side Needs To Fish For Dinner Too
Even Emperor Palpatine needs a break sometimes to go out on the lake and fish. Can't he just use the force to get the fish to bite his bait? Maybe this is another way to get people to join the dark side because they have fresh fish, unlike the other side.
In all seriousness, what Star Wars convention were these two coming from, and why did they decide to go fishing while they were still dressed up? Wouldn't you be concerned if you passed these two on the lake without any context behind their outfits?
27. Hitching A Ride
At first, we thought, this man has to be from Florida because there is nowhere else in the world where this would happen. However, upon closer inspection, we noticed the phone number on the tire is from Australia, which makes just as much sense.
We wonder what kind of drugs did this man take before he found himself hitching a ride on the back of this camper. His face says, "How did I get up here? I took the ramp, and now I can't seem to get out of this traffic."
28. Busted Big Time
This boy is about to get the scolding of his life, and we can only hope he realized his mom was standing behind him before he did anything too embarrassing. It was a rookie mistake for him to set up his computer with his back facing the door.
It's just a matter of time before he looks up and realizes his mom is standing behind him with a disappointed look on her face. That's going to be the most awkward conversation he has, and you can bet that he will never make this mistake again.
29. When Your Big Gong Solo Is Coming Up
This guy only had one part out of the entire song, so he made sure everyone in the audience noticed his part. Even the drummer next to him took notice of his big solo, so he clearly accomplished what he wanted to with the giant mallet.
We hear that the highlight of the symphony is watching the hammer-wielding man that only gets to play once per show. He would make a very good judge because he would be able to command the courtroom with his incredible gavel skills.
30. Wakey, Wakey!
"It's time to wake up and feed me, sir. You have slept enough, and now it is time to pay attention to me whether you like it or not." It would be a huge twist if this guy doesn't even own a cat, and it snuck into his bedroom window.
If you own a cat, is this normal behavior? Or is it secretly plotting his death? We can never tell the difference because we are pretty sure that all cats are trying to take over the world and make humans their personal slaves.
31. Tiny Soldiers Reporting For Pool Duty
This is what happens when you add penguin DNA to the genetically engineered super soldiers. They will be waddling to the battlefield, and it might take them some extra time to get there because their legs are so small.
We didn't know Navy SEAL training made them shrink. They must have a top-secret shrink ray that allows them to move around without being seen. We thank these tiny soldiers for defending the country and doing their pool duty.
32. A McNightmare That Will Haunt Your Dreams Forever
It seems like McDonald's wanted to sabotage the new KFC that opened up next to them in the food court, so they hired a bunch of people to dress up as Ronald McDonald. The Ronalds stood in front of the KFC and directed people towards McDonald's instead.
This seems more like the latest installment of the It movies. A bunch of clowns gathering in the food court would give anyone nightmares. If you look at this picture long enough, you might even be able to hear the sound of distressed chickens in the background.
33. Is He Attempting To Commit Mass Murder?
Wherever the picture was taken, they must have really lax health and safety rules. Most people with common sense would know that they shouldn't start jackhammering the support pole under a packed patio. If we were sitting there and heard this man working, we would get out of there ASAP!
He must be sad he couldn't attend the party, so he is bringing the party down instead. In most other countries, people wouldn't be allowed in the building if they were tearing down the patio. It just makes sense not to have people there.
34. Preparing For A Swarm Of Hungry Monkeys
This man must be preparing for guerrilla warfare, and the bananas are to distract all the apes from attacking him. It seems that he bought enough to make sure they will be full before they reach him. How much do you think he spent on this banana shelter?
Maybe he bought them for a low price and plans to sell them for a profit. Whatever the situation is, it probably took a lot of time to build this banana fort that doesn't even cover his head. He isn't protecting his most vulnerable parts.
35. Is She Okay?
We are hoping and praying that this girl decided to sit on the only one without one of those metal things. It would be very concerning if she sat on top of the egg-shaped object because that would be highly uncomfortable.
We have some serious questions for this woman because this picture made us all wince. It reminds us of the saying, "If there is a will, there is a way." Therefore, she must have had the will and found a way to sit.
36. "Why Isn't My Bucket Full Yet?"
"Day 127: My legs are cramping, and I cannot stand up, but my bucket is still not full." This is the perfect visual representation of us trying to get our lives together. Is this man is actually trying to fill the basket, or is he actually cleaning it?
He looks like he has given up on life, and this is the straw that will break the camel's back. If this basket doesn't magically fill with water, this man is going to lose his mind. It would be a good way to waste time if he knows it won't fill up.
37. There's A Guy Fieri Watching You
Imagine sitting in a restaurant and trying to enjoy your food in peace, only to look up and see Guy Fieri staring at you through the window with a sad look on his face. The camera in his face indicates that this is probably for a clip for Guy's show, but it is still bizarre.
Did Guy Fieri get exiled from Flavortown? He looks like he wants to reach through the window and steal a fry, but he knows he can't. We almost feel bad for him because the look of longing and sadness on his face is so strong.
38. And The Teacher Never Noticed For The Entire Semester
When you want to fit in with your friends, but all you can afford is a George Foreman Grill. This student brought in the grill for an entire semester instead of his laptop, and the professor never knew the difference.
Although students would laugh when he pulled it out every day, the professor never figured out that he wasn't typing his notes. Hopefully, they let the professor in on the joke on the last day of class.
39. When You Don't Do Your Homework
We wonder what this group of school children did to get themselves arrested. Did they collectively fail to do their homework? Did they refuse to go outside for recess? Whatever they did, it was bad enough to get them taken away in a police van.
Do you remember when you were in grade school, and the police would give presentations and allow you to go in the car to see what it is like? That is probably what is happening here because they look too happy to be in any real trouble.
40. "The Safety Is On, Right?"
In the middle of a protest, this photographer asked one of the police officers to pose for a picture, and we hope he had the safety on his rifle. We would be nervous to stare down the barrel of a gun, even if it were a posed picture.
Do you think the photographer was nervous about taking this picture? It seems like an unordinary situation, so he was probably pretty freaked out.
41. What Boys Really Do At Sleepovers
People always wonder what happens at boys' sleepovers because we only know what we see in the movies. However, this picture finally gives us the insight we wanted. We can now confidently say that boys just sit in a dark basement and play video games when they hang out.
The only thing that doesn't make sense is the boy taped to the ceiling. How much duct tape do you think they used to ensure he was secure and wouldn't fall. It probably took a lot to hold up his weight.
42. A Very Peaceful Protest
There are many different types of protests, and this has to be the most peaceful one we have ever seen. These people decided to bring a couch and TV into the street to protest traffic possibly. However, that would be counterproductive because they are causing more traffic.
It's unclear what they are trying to accomplish, but it would make a cool album cover. If this is what people mean when they say, "Stop watching TV and get outside," then we would do that.
43. How To Give Your Child Nightmares For The Rest Of His Life
As if being in the hospital wasn't bad enough, the creepiest version of the Teletubbies showed up to "cheer up" this boy, but it probably scared him more than it helped. This boy probably needed some serious therapy after this horrifying experience.
Although it seems like a scene out of a horror movie, the boy looks fairly calm. Maybe he has only seen knock-off versions of the Teletubbies, and this is what he thinks they are supposed to look like. That would explain why he isn't screaming in fear.
44. BYOC: Bring Your Own Chair
When the bus is full and you don't feel like standing, so you bring your own lounge chair for the commute. We wish they would replace all the seats with comfy chairs like this because it would make a much more enjoyable experience.
The only thing he is missing is a flatscreen TV, and then he will have the perfect setup. The only problem is that he is sitting right in front of the door, so people will have a hard time getting on and off the bus. Not the best place to put it.
