30 of the Stupidest, Most Useless Things To Ever Technically Exist | 22 Words

While there are a lot of things out there with questionable purposes, for the most part, you can realize why they exist.

We’re not really talking about those things today. No, today we’re taking a look at some of the most pointless things that are still being used out there for some reason.

This Gate

via: Imgur

Do not pass go. Do not collect $200.

This Pedestrian Crossing

via: Imgur

Are there really a lot of cars jumping the curb there? Maybe they're just really thick parking spot lines...

These Subtitles

via: Imgur

Well thank you, mon ami. That's super helpful.

This Bench

via: Imgur

Unless you can teleport yourself over the grass to the bench, you're violating the very intimidating sign.

This Staircase

via: Imgur

When you get to the bottom of the stairs, you're supposed to jump onto that wire and continue to the tree where you can eventually shimmy down to the ground. Obviously.

This Building

via: Imgur

Not a whole lot of leg room there, huh? But I hear rent is quite cheap.

These Shoes

via: Imgur

It's a good thing they made the front of the waterproof because there's no way the back of your foot will get wet wearing these, right?

This Fire Exit

via: Imgur

Fire! Run through the door right into another row of cars in the parking ramp!

This Fire Extinguisher

via: Imgur

Speaking of fire, how is this supposed to work? I can't translate, but I believe it just says, "Run for your life because this ain't happening, dude."

This Sign

via: Imgur

It's a bus stop, but no buses actually stop. Makes total sense. Great use of signage. The smiley face is a nice touch though.

This Banana Keeper

via: Imgur

But only if your banana is the exact shape of the container. Otherwise, your banana is doomed to brown on the counter.

This Pole

via: Imgur

I'm just thinking out loud here, but how about you just remove the pole?

And This Sign

via: Imgur

Well, it's not a totally pointless sign because now you can be on the lookout for vending machines without the pointless sign and maybe get a cash reward!

This Translation

via: Imgur

Good thing they cleared that up.

This Gate

via: Imgur

I suppose it does serve as a tiny barrier between solid land and the edge of a cliff, but still... The greenery is quite scenic, you have to admit.

These Drawers

via: Imgur

Someone forgot that whole, "Measure twice, cut once" thing. How did this get past quality control?

This Peephole

via: Imgur

Why look out a huge window when you can have the more intimate experience of using a creepy peephole?

This Water

via: Fit Clarity

Does normal water just have too many negative calories for you? Have no fear! Diet water exists!

This Book

via: Imgur

Instead of actually watching clips on YouTube, you can read about the clips you should probably watch on YouTube. Shouldn't this be an e-book?

This Bus Seat

via: Imgur

Sure, boss. Totally put those bus seat in single file. Mission accomplished.

This Door

via: Imgur

It's actually not totally pointless, seeing as it really makes lunch exciting when someone just random drops in there.

This Gate

via: Imgur

YOU SHALL NOT PASS! Actually, go right ahead. We're not going to stop you.

These Steps

via: Imgur

Don't think of them as totally useless stairs. Think of it as a tiny little stage.

This Watermelon

via: Bored Panda

The perfect snack to eat alongside your diet water. Don't get too full, my friends.

This Bench

via: Imgur

Are you tired and want to take a load off? Just scale the fence and take a seat right here on that bench.

This Warning

via: Twitter

Someone had to necessitate this sign, so I guess it's not really pointless. But I say just let natural selection take over.

This Bike Lane

via: Imgur

Just pedal to the medal, take a right and then catapult over the railing. Make sure to wear a helmet.

This Wheelchair Ramp

via: Imgur

Up one side and...down the same exact side.

This Wiper

via: Imgur

Unless they've swapped out wiper fluid for paint remover, I'm thinking that's not going to really work.

And last but not least...

Hours of pointless fun!
