22. I'm hooked on garage sale Youtube videos

where eBay resellers wear a GoPro camera and film their negotiations with people running their garage sales.

The number of ordinary citizens that get a deer in the headlights look when asked to do simple mental math problems like "What's two times thirty?" is really, really scary.

One women had agreed to about six items up to $15 and when the buyer asked to add one more small thing she reduced the price of all of it to $10. A lot of people would rather lose a few bucks than spend ten seconds adding them up correctly.

Makes me wonder what all the other kids were doing in elementary school if they weren't learning civics, history, geography, basic science or math.

And these are the same people who think they know more about vaccines than Dr Fauci.
