    He Pooped In The Shower 

    From Redditor /u/VictorBlimpmuscle:

    There was this guy I went to college with - when he was in the shower, if the urge hit him, he would just take a [poo] in the shower instead of getting out to use the toilet. He did this the whole time he was a kid apparently, and it wasn’t til he got to college and had to share bathroom facilities that he found out other people showering in adjacent stalls weren’t cool with smelling [feces] as he waffle-stomped a log down the drain.

    Is this ridiculous?

    He Washed Clothes On Every Cycle 

    From Redditor /u/sooner_or_later:

    My roommate in college thought you washed clothes on every single cycle on the washing machine. Our machine had a delicate cycle, a cotton cycle, a solo rinse cycle, a permanent press cycle, etc.

    He always complained about the washer taking forever...its because he was washing his clothes 4-5 times every time he did laundry.

    Is this ridiculous?

    He Didn't Realize The Sun And Moon Were Totally Different Celestial Bodies

    From Redditor /u/nevar021:

    My sister’s ex husband thought the moon was the sun but in “night mode” so it’s more dim.

    The man was 43 years old.

    He Thought Enemas Helped The Common Cold

    From Redditor /u/Dammit_MoonMoon:

    In college, a bunch of friends and I were sitting around talking about things we did as a kid. One of the guys in the group said, "Didn't you hate when you got a cold and your mom would give you an enema?" He soon found out that he was the only one.
