List Rules Vote up the things that other people love to talk about or do... but you just don't think are that cool.

Jorts are the dumbest things I've ever seen. Next to Toms shoes. Next to the Toyota Prius. Next to d-bags taking pictures of their food. There are so many things that suck that people think are cool. For real, some of the supposed best bands ever and the greatest movies of all time are just overrated bunches of garbage.

So add the things that you think have run their course or never had a leg to stand on to begin with, like people that use their children as their profile picture. Unless you were permanently scarred and no longer recognizable after giving birth, this is not okay. (UPDATE: it has been determined this is never okay).

If there are other things that society has deemed acceptable and/or cool that are missing from the list, make sure to add them so other people can finally realize that the things they are doing (like the Harlem Shake) are just not okay.
