50 Impossibly Dumb People Who Will Make You Feel Like a Genius | 22 Words

We all make mistakes, and sometimes we end up feeling pretty silly as a result. But if you’ve ever had the feeling of worry that every other bulb in the shed is brighter, never fear! A recent Reddit thread quickly pointed out that, no matter how dumb your mistake can be, there are people who’ve made worse.

Did you know that dinosaurs were extinct? Or that you need a drivers' license to rent a car? If so, then you're miles ahead of the people on this list! Most of these things are common sense, but there seem to be a surprising lack of that in the world. It's equal parts worrying, and hilarious.

Check out these 35 incredibly dumb things people have said or done. You’ll be amazed—and kinda relieved!

That’s not how dogs work…or language.

A girl in one of my college classes didn't understand how dogs in Spain understood their owners. She thought dogs only understood English and were just lost as hell in any other country. -nate800

Sometimes we just need to be better prepared for the adult world.

Another friend, now 27 and in the working world, recently called to ask me what interest is because "they keep charging this 'interest' thing on my loans, like what even is that?" -nate800

And sometimes, you’ve just gotta feel bad for people.

I had an ex that financed all her furniture for a new house. I got a call from her a few months later saying "did you know when you finance something you end up paying WAY more than an item is worth." Felt bad for her. -Badatthis28

Driving is driving, people. We just learn differently.

I once had a Lyft driver who could not wrap her mind around the fact that people in Australia drive on the left side of the road. "How do they even do that without getting into an accident?!" I lost some of my faith in humanity that day. -LosGatosMalos

Um…what?!

Worked at a Starbucks in a mall a few years ago. Some of the stores were going to be closed for Easter, and they had a list of those stores on signs all around the store way ahead of time. Lady walks up to me at the register and asks if I know what stores will be closed. I tell her I don't know them all but that there's a sign right behind her with a list to which she promptly responds with "I don't read signs" then expects me to tell her what she wants to know. I couldn't hold my laughter after that. -tjcoolkid

Seriously, how is this real?

I’ve met this lady. I worked at a tea house. We closed for private events. When we did, it usually meant we closed early. The catch was that the guests still needed to get inside, so we closed the doors but didn’t lock them. Signs were posted outside, directly in the path of the door, on big sandwich boards, explaining we were closed for a private party. The party gets going, and everyone has arrived. They have their tea, they’re having a blast. Two hours in, this lady trips over our sign, moves it out of the way and drags the door open. I’m watching her do this, feeling what little faith I had left in humanity drain away, pray she’ll get it together and stay outside. But no, she’s determined. She’s getting her $7 coffee even if she has to chip a nail to do it. She gets inside, straightens her coat, huffing at me. “You’re so unwelcoming, making it so hard to get inside! Anyway, I want—," Jesus, she’s actually trying to order. At this point, the party is starting to notice. She doesn’t belong, she isn’t here for their baby shower or bridal shower or whatever. “Oh I’m sorry, we’re closed!" I’m trying to be nice. I’ve had the face on all day, surely it will withstand her and my inner anguish will stay under the surface, right. “No, I want my latte," she just brushed it aside. Maybe she didn’t hear me. “I can’t do that for you, we’re closed for a private party, I’m sorry!" “Um, what?" Disbelief. Shock. It’s starting to sink in through her inches of make-up and cloud of self-entitlement-scented perfume. She’s being told no? Perish the thought. “Yeah, like the sign you moved out of the way said, we are closed for a private party. I will not serve you today." Polite. Firm. Passive aggressive. I’m supposed to be the one staff here that’s good with the difficult customers. Keep it together! “Ugh, whatever! Like, I don’t read signs! Your coffee isn’t even that good anyway, I was just supporting you people because you’re foreign!" She left in a huff, stumbled around the sign again, and walked down the block to Starbucks. What a piece of humanity. -m4ttr1k4n

"I'm sure it'll be fine."

Customer: I'll have your veggie plate. Me: Would you like to add cheese for $1 extra? C: No, thank you. I'm vegan. Me: Well, sir, if you're vegan you should know the bean soup you ordered as a starter has a ham base and is not even vegetarian. C: Oh, that's fine. I can just eat around it. - ferballz

Sure, the government wants you to believe tuna is a fish...

When I was in high school (before smartphones) we got on the topic of fish and I said something about tuna. Then a girl said, “tuna isn’t a real fish." And everyone was like, “wtf are you talking about yes it is." Then she said, “then why is there a marlin on the front of tuna cans?" And we were all like, “THAT'S A TUNA." The she said, “tuna is the stomachs of a bunch of fish combined." Then we called the meat department of the grocery store and had the butcher (who was extremely confused) explain that tuna was in fact a fish. All in all she still didn’t believe us - Thatdamnalex

Now he has the advantage.

Gotta love the guy that will speed up, cut you off, just to sit four feet farther up in the gigantic line of traffic. - DuhMayor

You see, the sun is like a battery.

Probably when a town in NC rejected a plan to install solar panels because they thought the panels would “suck up all the sun’s energy and not leave any for plants." - Studio_Life

Smoke 'em if you got 'em.

The first time I walked into a patient room on a cardiac floor in a tertiary care hospital and the patient was sitting there smoking with 8 L of oxygen going into their nose. And got all pissy with me when I told him to PUT IT OUT. - mom3coffee

Read the rules, guys!

When I was at kindergarten, our teacher asked us to name one game to play and I suggested Hide and seek. Then the teacher said, "Okay, since you suggested the game, you will count first." I wanted to hide (as you do) but fair enough. I closed my eyes, started counting, and everyone hid. After I finished counting, I opened my eyes and after a quick look around I saw one of my classmates running around like a damn idiot. So I called him out: "I found you, you're out" but then he answered: "I'm not out, you didn't catch me yet". Right after he said that, ALL of my classmates came out of their hiding spots and started running around the campus. I was so baffled with the situation, I just stood there and watch them run around. One of the best display of the Herd effect I've ever seen. - TheJustGordo

"What up fam, me and my homie here just chillin.'"

"Let me take a selfie next to this wild animal." - InternalMovie

I've done a three-minute workout before.

I work at a health club and on Labor Day we close at noon. This has always been the case and there is more than ample notice. This was the conversation that went down this past year with someone who came in the door near closing: Staff Member: “Sir, we’re closing." Patron (in the most arrogant way possible): “Well, not until noon!" S: “...um it’s 11:57..." P: Stares blankly at the about 10 of us watching this unfold for five seconds before slowly turning and walking out. - dwoller

I hope this is a veterinarian...

The number of people that I've had to explain to that: 1) Neutering doesn't involve cutting off your dog's penis. B) No, the uterus will not grow back. III) It's technically illegal to dig through our dumpster to try and find your dog's uterus/balls so they can be reattached, not that they would work anyway, but go right ahead (while I film it). - FuzzehDeath

Oh come on!

I knew a couple in my hometown. They were both out drinking and he decided to drive them home. Both drunk. He gets pulled over and they impound the car and take him to jail for a DUI. The officers decide to drive the girl home. She gets home, gets in her car, and drives to the police station to pick up her boyfriend. The officers notice it's the same girl they just drove home and arrest her for drinking and driving. - SmithiZit

The whole thing is one big zone.

My grandpa's cleaning lady was making fun of me for believing that the ozone layer exists. She laughed out loud at me and said, "Then how do the rockets take off from Earth without crashing into it?" And continue to laugh and make fun of me for it for a good 10 minutes straight. I was so baffled that I just let her go on. - [account deleted]

Time-travelers like making TV shows too.

My family and I were watching a program on TLC about cavemen. There were actors dressed up like Cavemen, doing cavemen things, as the narrator explained the scientific theory around what they thought their lives were like. My Sister was just in awe watching this. Mouth slightly open, eyes open wide. During a commercial break she asked the room, "How did they get the cameras back there?" - openletter8

"I don't want to think this through! I just want donuts!"

I had a customer yell at me that their donuts were supposed to be buy-one-get-one-free instead of half price. I had to explain how 1/2 + 1/2 was 1. Never understood it and just sneered "whatever" and had me cancel their order. - whoevencaresrly

One thing about causes is that they don't have effects.

This middle-aged woman I work with at a fast food place was drinking a glass of superrrrr sweet tea when these words came out of her mouth: "My doctor said that I may have diabetes. I don't understand how, I never eat sugar" - angdawnk

The banks work hard for their money.

Me while watching a semi-friend do 10 separate ATM transactions: "Why are you taking out $200.00 from the ATM in $20.00 increments? You are just adding up the $2.50 fee?" Semi-Friend: "It all adds up in the long run" Me: "No duh, it adds up to you wasting money" Semi-Friend: "No, trust me, it adds up." - [account deleted]

Which one is me again?

Someone once asked me and my twin sister if we don't mistake ourselves for the other one. I like to think she was joking but I don't think she was. - Nohface2

Just stuff the bills in the little holes in the speaker.

Phone Customer: Can I pay with cash over the phone? Me: ... - MotaTattoosGatitos

Would you rather go to the Olympics or the Triwizard Tournament?

During a trivia game at summer camp, we were asked to name places the Olympics has been held. Someone mentioned Athens and the girl next to me started to lose her mind laughing. I asked her why and she responded "Isn't Athens that place from Harry Potter?" - starsd2299

All animals are ham, and ham is all animals.

A surprising amount of people in my life have thought that ham came from its own animal and had nothing to do with pigs. At least two of those people had this conversation while eating a ham sandwich after claiming not to eat pork. - spaceman_slim

They sure do, Jessica!

"Do girls in your country get their periods?" - mjftlf

"Well there's no Great Wall of JAPAN, Jessica!"

While in a really long car trip with my parents, we were discussing countries we'd like to visit. My mother said she'd like to visit Japan to see the Great Wall of China. My dad and I don't let her forget. - ElementalDinosaur

Some people just live in a bubble.

The following exchange is offered verbatim (or as near to it as I can remember): HER: That suit would look great on you. ME: (Checking the price) Too bad I don't have nine hundred dollars. HER: Just use your credit card. ME: I still wouldn't have nine hundred dollars. HER: What are you talking about? ME: I try to pay off my balance in full when I use my credit card. That's more than I can afford right now. HER: (Irritated) That makes zero sense. Nobody pays for credit cards! They give them to you! ME: Not the card; the balance. The bill. HER: What "bill?" ME: ... The credit card bill? The one you have to pay every month? HER: No, you don't. ME: Okay, well, I guess you can make minimum payments, but... HER: (Interrupting) What are you talking about?! You are making zero sense. If you don't like the suit, just say so! ME: I do like the suit, I just can't afford it. Using my credit card wouldn't magically make it so I wouldn't have to pay. HER: You don't pay for credit cards. God, what is wrong with you? ME: Wait. Do you mean that you've never paid your credit card bill? HER: There's no such thing! Credit cards are so you don't have to pay. It eventually came to light that the young woman had been given her credit card by her parents, who paid the balance for her whenever they received a bill. - RamsesThePigeon

Would make pet ownership easier...

I work at an animal shelter and a woman asked me if we had any dogs that didn't poop. I told her no, all dogs poop. So she asked about cats. - dazzleduck

"Try harder to make your breath helium, honey!"

Blowing balloons up with my own air (no gas etc) with my wife prior to a party. Wife: “No no no. Don’t blow the balloons that fall to the floor, blow up the floating balloons" Me *Look of disbelief* “What? You need to use helium for that?" Wife: “No, you’re just not bothering, that’s what it is" - [account deleted]

The logic tracks.

A woman once asked me if Antarctica was really hot, because Mexico is south of us and it's really hot, and other countries are south of us and they're really hot too. - TripperDay

"There's always a 50% chance of rain. Think about it, it will either rain or it wont so that's gotta always be 50%." - THRASHER_69

How about "quiet"?

When I worked at a call center and someone said "Q for cucumber" to me. - pixelgames

I worry I might one day erode.

At 17 years old I assumed this girl couldn't be that dumb, but honestly, the stuff she said made me think she should be watered once a day. Some of the best included: "Solar panels wont work in space cause there's no sun light out there." "Copper smells like a wet muffin." "If you stood under a really strong waterfall would you erode or would the water just move out of the way?" - dvmxena

Text-talk isn’t appropriate for every situation.

Trained up a new girl at work, over the period of a few weeks. Emphasized that one of the most important things in the role is attention to detail. Wording things correctly, showing pride in your work etc. Day 1 without me, begins sending emails to customers that look like they were written by a 6-year-old. Using the letter 'U' instead of 'you', 'thx' instead of 'thanks' & xoxo at the end of her signature. I laughed so, so hard. She was fired two days later. -TISM_riverphoenix

How to make a horrible first impression at a new job:

We had this brainiac once: Training Manager: "Hi new guy! I'm [name] from the training department. How's your first week treating you?" New guy: “Not good honestly. They have me going through all this fucking garbage training that's a waste of time." Training Manager: ".........ouch." That actually wasn't what got him fired, but by two weeks later he was chopped for similar attitude. -bread_berries

This was a disaster waiting to happen:

Last night, driving home from a friend's place, this dude on a bike—no helmet, no lights, no reflective gear, wearing black, at night, riding in the fast lane of a multi-lane highway where bikes are prohibited, turning at a light against the red, while talking on the phone. -Yoglets

Yeah, that’s not what ‘diet’ means.

Someone who had been trying a ‘Mediterranean diet’ on the advice of their doctor managed to put on 15kg in the 4 weeks since they were advised to do so. The classic ‘fish and vegetables’ approach they had fervently adhered to had comprised of eating nothing but deep-fried fish and chips from the local chippy. Every day. For four weeks. -barneylow

Did you know that this crazy (and horribly planned) event happened?

The Cleveland Balloon Disaster of 1986. At that time, the City of Cleveland attempted to set a Guinness World Record by releasing over one-and-a-half-million balloons into the sky from one location. The resulting cloud was so thick that it temporarily shaded out the sun over part of the city. Many of the balloons went straight into Lake Erie, which interfered with a very urgent Coast Guard search and rescue mission. The victims were found dead several days later. Most of the remaining balloons drifted up to Canada, where they promptly deflated and littered natural areas en masse. For weeks, the shoreline was covered in pieces of rubber. The Guinness Book of World Records refused to recognize the stunt due to its severe negative impact on the environment. Many of the participants seemed genuinely shocked that the balloons eventually fell back down to the ground. -HighDingyDoo

Who thought this was a good idea?

This reminds me of the beached whale in Oregon in the 70’s that was blown up with dynamite and it went so much worse than anticipated. They used way too much dynamite and it rained down decomposing whale bits all over beach-goers and even flattened a car or two. Not sure what they were thinking and now, they dispose of whales in a much safer fashion. -randominiquelouise

Some people should really retake their driving tests.

I was driving on the interstate yesterday evening, traffic wasn't that heavy. There was a semi that was on the shoulder ready to get back on the road so the car in front of me comes to a complete stop to let this truck on the road. Naturally, I had to come to a sudden stop and so did the semi behind me. Thankfully, there was no one in the left lane, so the semi was able to get around me, but if there was someone in the left lane, an accident would have happened, and I likely would have taken the brunt of it. DON'T STOP ON AN INTERSTATE! -She_Likes_Cloth

Sure, Jan.

I'm a server and one time a woman made me get her another glass of ice water because the ice had melted and watered down her drink. -cowsworsethancoppers

This person might not know how life works.

Watching March of the Penguins in high school Biology next to the dumbest girl I’ve ever met. First, the DVD had a trailer for Happy Feet before the movie so she immediately goes “Oh my god, how did they get the penguins to dance like that?" thinking it was part of the documentary. Then, later on, there is a scene where one of the penguins gets eaten by a sea lion. She gasps and asks her friend how they’d gotten a dinosaur on film. -undeadgorgeous

Read the writing!

First responder here. One thing that always gets me is when I put a "ROAD CLOSED" sign up for one reason or another. Red flares and orange cones are also used to block the road. Yet we ALWAYS have to have someone stand there too, because inevitable some dumb a** will either try to drive through it anyway or will come up and block other traffic nearby to ask "Is this road closed?" -Plainas_Tay

Why would you risk your kids—or yourselves—like this?

Finding out people who can't swim will take their children who also can't swim to water parks and get into the wave pool expecting tubes and floaties to keep them alive. Wave pools are dangerous enough, even for people who CAN swim. Why would anyone who can't swim, willingly get into one? Go to a waterpark, sure! But stick with the shallower rides that aren't full of waves designed to knock people around. -beepborpimajorp

Some things just aren’t possible.

"How do you convert meters to pounds?" This was in high school but it still hurt that it was wrong on so many levels. -FailureFourLife

This is why we follow directions.

On my last trip to Disneyland, I was waiting in line to enter the park. Recently, due to bad people doing bad things, Disney has implemented a security checkpoint. This includes a bag check and a metal detector. It moves fast, it's easy, it takes maybe three minutes out of your day. As I was standing there, from behind me, I heard the telltale sound of someone running in flip-flops. I turned around and there was a family of five SPRINTING towards the checkpoint, all in matching shirts, looking like they were running for their lives. I think a parade was about to start, or something. Clearly, their lives would end if they didn't make it inside in time to see the old man from Up waving on a float. The mom and the three kids slowed down a little to find a security line. The dad didn't. Desperate times called for desperate measures. If he didn't get Little Jimmy inside in time to see Moana SH*T WAS GOING TO HIT THE FAN. The dad blew straight past the bag check, jostling a few people, and continued right through the metal detector. The alarms went off, but he didn't stop. Not yet. A security guard jumped in front of him, threw out an arm, and clotheslined his ass. By the time I got through the line, they had pulled the guy and his completely MORTIFIED family off to the side and were attempting to escort them out of the park. The guy was confused, angry, and volatile. What did they MEAN he couldn't go in?! What did they MEAN he was now a "security risk?!" He's here on VACATION. I ended up walking away, just close enough to hear an angry "BUT WE BOUGHT TICKETS!" If I had three days and a PowerPoint presentation I still don't think I could explain to that man what he did wrong. By the way, the parade was a baller. -SpelledWithAn_H

The lesson here? Pay attention in geography class.

When I see girls posting on social media 'Going to London with my friends! Bye, England!' -depressedboys

How dare a children’s toy act unrealistic (even when it’s not)?!

I used to work at a zoo. I saw a woman grab a spotted plush seal out of her son's hands. "You don't want that, it's unrealistic," she said. "What is this eve, some sort of seal leopard?" Huh, I thought to myself. Leopard seal would be a good name for a totally mythical animal that happens to look just like that plushie. -Hopeful_Penguin

Some people should re-learn measurements.

That thing about when A&W advertised a 1/3-pound burger and it flopped because people thought McDonald's 1/4-pound burger was bigger because 4 is bigger than 3. Also, I've been watching a lot of Flat Earth videos lately. -Embarrassed_Buy

Ah, if only cell phones worked this way.

I listened to a call at work yesterday where a grown adult man called in to say he left his charger at home and wanted us to send a charge to his phone. I just don’t…what...? -AlliCakes

This is strange on a few levels.

I thought of another one. A woman called complaining that when she went to her Facebook profile, it was someone else's picture and she was convinced someone stole her Facebook. Turns out, she was typing "your profile" into the search bar and someone named Your Profile was coming up. -AlliCakes

Wow. Just…wow.

During the last solar eclipse, local hospitals reported people showing up to the ER for putting something in their eyes. That something? Sunscreen. -nebshits

Don’t kill progress!

Anti-vaxxers. Science brought us to a place where within 100 years or so we could have seen the worldwide elimination of deadly viruses. We killed smallpox. It doesn't exist anymore! And then there's this single debunked report and Jenny McCarthy and suddenly we have measles outbreaks. -Manofthedecade

There really is a logical scientific explanation.

CBC did a bit on the first Flat-Earther National Convention in Vancouver. One of the guys they interviewed said: “If the earth is round, how come water in lakes isn't round as well??" -thebriss

Thank goodness for Wikipedia—some of us should definitely look things up first.

The people on Reddit who thought that having babies adds total mass to the earth. It literally blew my mind anyone could be so stupid. Do schools not teach the law of conservation of mass anymore? I thought that was literally like 8th-grade science. -Sherwood16

A lot of U.S. citizens would probably fail the citizenship test.

My professor made us take a US citizen sample exam and a question asked, “who was the president during WWII?" And someone put George Washington as an answer. -_Alphabrah

If you have to ask the question…

My boss asked me once how I managed to get so much work done but was on Reddit every time he came to my desk. The real question should have been "How does everyone else get so little work done?". -darth_ravage

You mean I won’t learn my daily horoscope?

On the first day of Astronomy I, prof gave us the syllabus and short lecture on exactly what he expected. He finished with "This is no astrology. This is real science." Two girls got up and left. I was shocked. -judasmachine

Seems like scammers should be obvious…but not to everyone.

I've known people who lost thousands in MLM schemes. -lifeisasongyouknow Multi-level Marketing, that is.

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice…

One of my acquaintances from high school is a regular with this. Each year she gets scammed into another. First, it was Plexus, then ITWorks, then the toothpaste, then Younique. Then every time after she quits, she puts up a long Facebook post about how it was a scam and won’t be fooled again. Oh, honey. -hhurdd

License before cars, ma’am.

I rent cars, had a lady try to rent a car from me, she didn't have a driver's license and got mad when I didn't rent to her. -greythicv

Thank goodness for safety standards.

At Universal’s volcano bay, there is a ‘fast’ lazy river. It’s so fun! You have to wear life jacket style floaters. My Dad was like ‘I’m not going to wear that! I don’t need to!’ Fortunately, you are forced to. He did need to. -Adam657

If you live in the southern hemisphere, hold on tight!

My friend's high school girlfriend asked why people in Australia don't fall off the Earth since they're on the bottom of it. She also said that two triangles can't make a square. -IsolatedSystem

Make it rain!

My cousin. He didn't understand how ATMs and overdrafts worked and thought he was getting free money. -tanew231

Flat earth isn’t a thing.

I’m a bartender and a guy has recently started frequenting my bar. He’s about 40. A conversation led into conspiracy theories and this fella gives me a peek into how his mind (doesn’t) work. He’s a flat earther. To prove his point he asks for a glass of water and upon receiving it, he challenges me to “curve" the water. He also states that if the Earth was round, Australia would be flooded. Obviously. -Missat0micb0mbs

The key to any survival scenario: delivery.

In high school, we were discussing the movie Alive (about a soccer team whose plane crashed in the Andes Mountains) because it came out as we were reading Lord of the Flies, and the similarities to being stranded, self-rule/anarchy, etc. Anyway, this one girl in the class asked why, if they were so hungry they resorted to cannibalism, didn't they just call Domino's and order pizzas to be delivered. -blipsman

Ouch!

This is a true story. I worked with a guy who made a bet that his steel toe shoes could stop a freight elevator, and tested it with his foot in them still. Exactly what you'd think would happen happened and now his toes are gone. That's the dumbest person I know. -jelacey

This was never going to work.

Once my roommate finished ironing his clothes, he wanted to put the ironing board away so he put the hot iron on the carpet and put the board away. I came home to find a large speaker from our old entertainment system sitting in the middle of the living room. When I went to move it back, I found the giant patch of melted carpet, shaped like the iron. He thought he could hide it with the speaker. -askthelogicowl

…How?

He asked "Didn't tornadoes go extinct?" -Tmanning47

Don’t electrocute yourself!

This guy back in high school... In the electronic class he was playing with a pair of scissors and started cutting into everything. He eventually cut the cord to the soldering iron and nearly electrocuted himself. Today, he's a police officer. He pretty much got carried through high school by a friend that ended up as a chemistry PhD. They were known as Pinky and Brain. -rolfv

Watching Jurassic Park: “Hey this movie is pretty old right?" Yeah I guess… “Yeah, because all the dinosaurs are dead now right?" He was serious. -dawsonluke9

This guy wanted to throw hands over a really weird thing.

The guy who wound up wanting to fight me because I was explaining to him that calamari was Italian for squid. He insisted people do not ever, ever eat squid... The delightful conversation with a man who insisted all zebras in Africa are extinct, although I had just returned from there with photographic evidence from just two weeks before. -sombololo

And what continent is China a part of?

I was in 8th grade and I was like I'm germasian because I'm half Asian half German. Some kid was like “You're Asian?! I thought you were Chinese!" -graciepaint4

There’s a recipe for everything, apparently.

In high school, there was a girl in my friend group that wasn't too bright. One day at lunch she was eating an apple and told us all "I wish I knew how to make these." We were very confused and asked her what she meant. She honestly thought they were made by recipe and baked in the oven, like a cake. Yep... -SaebraK

No, America is not the only country with electricity.

One of my American friends asked me: “Do they have eeelectricityyy (electricity) in Germany?" To which I replied: “Your car (BMW) is made in Germany." Was pretty funny to be honest. -supertecnoboff

No impulse control:

He had told me he broke his camcorder after putting it in the microwave and then turning it on. I asked him why he did that. His response was "I didn't know." WHAT. WHAT IS THERE TO NOT KNOW. -Pinoynac
