Thanks to the internet, information is readily available. So it’s crazy to hear some people still uttering false details. It’s so bad that you can’t help but laugh and wonder if they are just misunderstood or sadly misinformed. Here are 10 hilariously dumb things people have heard.

1. Casinos Fear the Incredible Luck of Kids
Apparently, kids are barred from going to casinos because of their astonishing luck. Hence, they can single-handedly make casinos go out of business. At least, that’s what an economics student suggests.
2. Canada Is So Big, You Can Spend a Lifetime in Alaska
It appears that geography isn’t a forte for many people. Someone once said there’s no reason to leave Canada since they could spend their whole life across the country. When asked where they would go first, the response was “Alaska.”
3. New Zealand: The Best European Country
The list of people who cannot read an atlas goes on. One user’s ex said she wanted to visit Europe. When asked which country she would visit, she responded, “New Zealand.”
Another member complains how Argentina would often be confused by people as a European country, while a Guyanian user mentions how folks think they’re from Africa.
4. Mixing up Champions and Prophets
Someone recalls how their eighth-grade classmate confidently said Muslims believe in “Muhammad Ali.” She confused the name of the famous Muslim boxer with the revered prophet. Float like a butterfly, sting like a misinterpretation.
5. Unicorns, Dragons, And…platypuses?
The lines between reality and fiction blur as one member shares how their sister thinks the platypus is mythical. To make it worse, she’s an 18-year-old who has definitely seen a platypus before.
6. Water’s Mysterious Turn
Water parks are a land of wonder. One person shares an overheard remark at the top of a waterslide: “How does the water know when to turn?” Some mysteries are best left unsolved.
7. A Lesson in Common Sense
Social interactions are not everyone’s specialty. Someone shares how someone at the post office asks for a faster way to send a parcel. Upon being presented with the option of overnight shipping, they asked, “How long will that take?” The hint is in the name, my friend.
8. Pugs: Not Real Dogs?
Irony can be a delightful and perplexing companion. Take the case of a pug owner who boldly claims not to like small dogs. The only way this statement makes sense is if pugs are not considered dogs at all.
As one user puts it, pugs are “A combination of a toddler and a cat in the body of what someone who’s never seen a dog in his life thinks a dog might look like.” Canine definitions are open for debate.
9. Cashier Confusion Chronicles
One woman shares how ten days postpartum, she had a swollen belly. The cashier at the store looked at her newborn and asked how old he was.
Upon knowing he was ten days old, the cashier dumbfoundedly asked, “And you’re having another one?” A moment of silence for the loss of basic math and understanding of postpartum recovery.
10. Pegasus vs. My Little Pony
Reality can take curious detours when it comes to beliefs. A user’s relative dislikes My Little Pony since unicorns aren’t real.
However, they do believe in Pegasus, citing its presence in the constellation and its involvement in the story of Hercules as undeniable proof—a whimsical journey through the realms of myth and selective reasoning.
