Yahoo Answers, aka: where the dumbest people on earth congregate

Seriously.

No, seriously.

I thought the nest had dumb people.  BOTB is a freaking Mensa meeting in comparison to Yahoo Answers.  Never in my life have I had such a constant feeling of “oh my god what on earth are they going to say next?”

This is a rundown of a half hour spent on Yahoo Answers TTC board.  Please note that I have written it in actual proper English- do not fool yourselves into thinking this is what the questions and answers actually look like.

Can you get pregnant without doing IT?

I’ve been TTC for three years and I’m only 19- why aren’t I pregnant?

Go get a blood test done (usually in response to anyone who thinks they might have the slightest indication that they may possibly actually maybe could it be maybe pregnant.).

You need to go to a fertility doctor. (usually in response to anyone who mentions trying to get pregnant for any amount of time under a year.)

Just adopt.  (usually in response to anyone who mentions trying to get pregnant for over a year).

Relax.  (this is found in pretty much every single post.)

I have a ______ who ________ and she has this ________ who went on vacation and she got pregnant.

Can you tell if you are pregnant the day after you have sex?

This is just a sampling and as you can see the answers are just as asinine as the questions.  No joke.  It is like the ultimate train wreck.

Which brings me to my dilemma.

Every time I get on there I want to rip out my eyeballs and shove them down my throat in the hopes that I stop breathing.  However, even though I may not be all knowing in the TTC arena, at times I am the only person who is giving answers that a.) make sense or b.) are actually good and correct advice.  The best part is you can vote on people’s answers and almost every single one of my answers has a “thumbs down” meaning people do not think it was a good answer.  Right.  So I feel that if I leave it will continue to be the blind leading the freaking blind.

What is a woman to do?

About Amanda Broyles

Amanda is amazing. Amanda is spectacular. Amanda is humble. Amanda is also a full time college student so take pity on her and don't complain when her TV reviews aren't up immediately following an episode.

    I nearly peed in my pants when I saw the tags you put in this entry. Thanks for the laugh. I needed that this morning. Sorry you keep getting thumbs down. I wish I were knowledgeable enough to put a “thumbs up” graphic in this comment, but I’m not. Oh, well.

    OMFG, yes. Thank you
    The people on yahoo answers are the stupidest motherfuckers on the planet.
    The problem seems to be that IQ is normally distributed, so fully half the pop. is on the left side of that ol curve…notice that an IQ of 100 is pretty insufficient … and 50% are less than that….yahoo answers really lets you get to see the left half of that curve in action, fuckin’ scary!
    I’m beginning to be afraid to leave my house. We are surrounded by idiots.

  4. Randall Munroe got it perfectly right with the linked cartoon (http://xkcd.com/386/). “I can’t come to bed: Someone is WRONG on the internet!”. Just leave the Yahooligans to their folly – it keeps them happy. You might find less frustrating material at Snopes and Wikipedia.

  5. The Yahoo morons are also tremendously stupid when it comes to credit issues as well. I wrote a scathing piece on these people back in September.

    Yahoo, in general, is sickening. Their headline stories cater 100% to America’s morons. ex.- “Akon plays dumb about age. The rapper says he isn’t sure how old he is — and he doesn’t want to know.”
    This has been the #1 story for over 24 hours now. I’m so embarrassed that i still have a yahoo e-mail address. Yahoo is the #1 contributer to the “Dumbing of America”.

    Yes lets loath on these stupid people to feel better about ourselves. We shall sit here and prove how much bigger intellectuals we are than them by posting and sharing opinions on a less known website. Bwaha-hahaha. The productivity of our time in doing so is oxymoron. Your not so different, you and them. Their stupidity is just more obvious, while yours takes a little more time to process.

    I’m never visiting this blog again, to prove what an intellectual does. No more time shall be spent on bad mouthing or revisiting a website i dislike. Such unproductive management of time on your part.

  13. serendipitie says:

    Rule #1 of being an “intellectual” is don’t actually refer to yourself as an intellectual when you misuse the word “loath”

    loath
    adj \ˈlōth, ˈlōth\\ˈlōth, ˈlōth\
    Definition of LOATH
    : unwilling to do something contrary to one’s ways of thinking : reluctant

    And now I will spend the next 10 minutes or so giggling at the moron, uh I mean the “intellectual”

    They’re not stupid, they’re just a bunch of 12 year olds.
