Sometimes you come upon a situation or creation that stops you in your tracks and makes you think, “but why?” It can be of your own doing and something went awry, usually in a DIY project, or it can be the product of skewed logic from another person. Yet, either way, it will always give you a moment of pause in confusion and utter bewilderment. Here are 70 situations that will have you questioning, “but why?”
1. Crocheted Nails
These nails are meant for those that love fabric crafts, but is putting crochet on their nails really necessary? These nails must get ruined with ever hand wash. Hopefully, she is still washing her hands regularly in spite of her nails.
2. Jean Chair
I am always one that supports recycling as much as you can, but this is where I would draw my limit. She upholstered a chair from an old pair of jeans. They must have been her favorite pair, to go to such lengths to keep the jeans in some capacity. Now she gets to sit in those jeans everyday if she wants.
3. Fashion Statement
Did you ever think that a Sprite liter bottle could make such a fashion statement? It is not the most friendly of materials to have on your face though, seems like it would be a bit scratchy. He does not seem to care, he just made his own “fashionable” glasses for cheap and he had some Sprite to drink during the DIY project.
4. Sid Is All Grown Up
Remember Sid from the original Toy Story movie? This is the type of Valentine’s Day I could picture him giving to his future wife. That lamp is just asking to give nightmares to anyone in the house. There is nothing more terrifying than needing a lamp in the dark and turning on this lamp. Those lit up eyes could haunt you.
5. Camping Inside
Who needs to buy a nightstand, when you can just bring in a log? That was the thinking for this person. If their stuff, glasses, wallet and phone, can be put on it, it’s functionality works just fine. This is a way to bring the outdoors inside your home, if you want to find a silver lining about this log/nightstand.
6. Tricked Ya
This has to be the meanest trick played on every shopper in this mall. They made their stairs look like it would be an escalator, but nope it is just stairs. This is one store that is forcing everyone to get their steps in. They said you need 10,000 a day after all.
There’s the right way of doing things, and then there’s the wrong way of doing things. But how can a solution be wrong when it’s faster? This is how.
Every day, we go through small internal battles. We argue with ourselves over doing things right or doing things fast. The 40 people ahead all opted to do things fast. And the consequences came even faster as a result!
It’s as good as new.
If you look closely, you’ll be able to see that some of the column uses new wood. Thanks to this restoration, the roof that the column’s holding up should stay in place for weeks. Warning: Do not play Jenga with this!
For once, the sockets are making the right expression
Drilling metal screws into the plugs? What could possibly go wrong? The weird thing about this one is that it actually took some effort to do something so stupid.
Calm down, there’s some plastic tape. No one could possibly walk over the gap with that tape in place. Right?
Sometimes when your health is out of balance you can’t see yourself clearly. When people struggle with something physical, like weight, they can’t always see how beautiful they really are. These people didn’t even realize how attractive they were until they worked on themselves, but now they can celebrate their appearances every day.
These 30 people have powerful stories, and their transformations are absolutely amazing. Their messages are so inspiring.
“I lost 100 lbs, and I feel great.”
“It took me 2 years and 3 months to get in shape. It sounds like a lot of time, but it was well worth it.”
“I made true friends, and they helped me to have a more active lifestyle. That’s how I managed to lose weight. Now I can communicate with any person.”
“The difference between these 2 photos is 4 years. And I was even used to not enjoying what I looked like.”
“Me when I was 19 and 21.”
“I was depressed because of the way I looked. I didn’t even want to live. But I decided that I was able to change everything, so I started losing weight… I feel great, and I’m enjoying my life!”
“I didn’t use to be really fat. I had a hard time choosing the right hairstyle.”
“I used to weigh 60 lb, now I weigh 90, and I keep working on my body.”
“3 years between these photos. Some people don’t believe that it’s me.”
“So much has changed in 3 years! Before, I didn’t get out much. I was very shy. Now we live in a time when changing your appearance is very easy.”
“Just 4 years, and this is what I’ve become (I’m on the right).”
“I started reading all the time. I read a lot. This is how I started changing psychologically and emotionally… This is how I found the answer for me.”
“I felt overwhelmed, but I decided to take one day at a time. I didn’t know if I would live or die. I just knew that I had to focus on the day I was living. I had a ‘lose weight or die trying’ mentality.”
“I knew I owed it to my son to try to break the family tree of obesity. There are so many compromises to being an obese parent: I was simply forfeiting the ability to participate in so many wonderful moments.”
Not all of us are fashion experts. This is why we try to experiment and mix and match clothes to see if we can look more stylish. Unfortunately, the more we try to look more fashionable, the more we end up failing. The risky fashion choice we make often leaves us looking ridiculous and weird in other people’s eyes.
Fortunately, fashion disasters aren’t always bad. In fact, they can be transformed into little entertainment and also a warning for others to never try to copy them.
Here are the most cringe-worthy fashion fails you need to see this year:
1. Brown logo on white shoes
In theory, putting a brown logo on a white background will make a product look classy. In reality, a brown logo on white shoes just looks like bird poo from afar.
2. A not-so-comfortable evening dress
This is probably one of the most uncomfortable dresses you’ll see. I don’t think you’ll have a great time wearing this to a party or anywhere.
3. When you accidentally stepped on something
This is actually a good pair of shoes if you always walk on mud or dirt. You won’t have to worry about cleaning your shoes. Plus, its design can work as camouflage for when you accidentally stepped on your dog’s poo.
Will you give up or will you never give up? Well, it’s a good shirt to wear if you still can’t decide. At least, you’re letting other people know where you stand.
