20 People Who Ruined It for the Rest of Us
It would be great if we could live in a world where everyone was intelligent and considerate; but sadly, we don’t. All it takes is one selfish person to ruin things for the rest of us. Here are 20 people who are the reason why we can’t have nice things.
People Who Take Animal Selfies
We get it. You want everyone on Instagram to see how much fun you’re having on your tropical vacation so you post a million photos. But lately there’s been an awful trend among tech-loving travelers: animal selfies. Vacationers have been caught pulling dolphins out of the water, dragging swans around by their wings and plucking feathers out of peacock’s backsides just to get a photo-op. Please stop before we’re all banned from every beach and zoo on the planet.
The Shoe Bomber
Once upon a time, you used to be able to pass through airport security without smelling hundreds of pairs of feet. You could wear sandals on your flight and not have to worry about picking up a foot fungus in the terminal. Now thanks to the infamous Shoe Bomber, a British terrorist who smuggled explosives onto a flight in his shoes, we all have to take our shoes off at airport security. Way to go!
The Guy Who Created Pop Up Ads
Even though Ethan Zuckerman has since apologized, but he is not forgiven. In the mid-90s, Zuckerman worked for web startup Tripod.com, when a car company complained about its banner ads running on racy websites. Zuckerman was asked to find a way to place ads in a separate window to avoid association, he wrote the code and — voila! Pops ups were born.
