Have you failed at something recently? Probably. I definitely have. That’s why it makes me feel a lot better to look at collections of other people failing, maybe even slightly more than I am.

As a species, we’re amazingly smart, and astonishingly dumb. And sometimes we just gotta point and laugh at ourselves.

Enjoy this gallery of some of the most facepalm-inducing fails to be found on the internet.
