We all had days when we dreamed that 2020 would end as soon as possible and everything would fall into place. Many of us have experienced so many setbacks this year that we have begun to wonder if we should visit an exorcist and cleanse our karma. To improve your mood, we've put together some of the most epic examples of people having worse days than yours.
In fact, Gary loves Doris, not what you think
This snake really saw some sh*t
The team poured concrete into the driveway next to the new house and were unaware of the ducks living nearby. The workers left for lunch, and when they returned they saw it
"I was wearing a sweatshirt over my head and the zipper caught on my eyelid. This could only happen to one person ... to me."
"I ordered a blackhead remover and this is how it was packaged. I had to pick it up at the post office and it was awkward as hell."
Looks like someone put too much powder in the washing machine.
"My mother-in-law just put me this piece of cake. She seems to dislike me."
"I got up in the middle of the night to drink some water, and when I opened the refrigerator, the door remained in my hand."
"Remember to close the dog door in the pouring rain. I forgot."
Photography speaks for itself
"Made a turmeric face mask without examining its properties. She painted my face and now I look like Bart Simpson."
"The wasp stung me right in the lip. Does anyone know 2020 will ever end?"
"This morning I walked to my first job with a fresh cup of coffee. It's not cream, it's crows."
"The moment when the perfume you bought for your wife for Christmas moved to the toilet as an 'air freshener'"
"I put on two different shoes to get my wife's opinion and forgot to change shoes before going to work. I went through the whole working day like this."
This guy bought a smartphone online and got a stone instead.

Mankind is developing exponentially, and time, as well as the ever-increasing number of people, gives us a chance for development, accumulation of experience, and evolutionary development.
However, not all people in history leave behind the eternal, the good; some do not want a bright future at all, and on the contrary, they drag many generations back.
People who have not changed the world in the best way
Perhaps all of us living on planet Earth could be much more advanced if it weren’t for these 20 guys who didn’t change the world in the best way or at least influenced the world. Here are a few famous names that slowed down our common evolution.
1. Thomas Midgley Jr.
American chemist and mechanical engineer who invented tetraethyl lead to be added to gasoline and chlorofluorocarbons for use in refrigerators and deodorants. Author of over 100 patents.
The production of Midgley's inventions had a devastating effect on the ozone layer. According to historian John McNeill, the inventor "had the greatest impact on the atmosphere than any other living organism in the history of the Earth."
2. Robert Maxwell - the creator of the meme "British scientists"
This man commercialized research articles in British journals. Before him, articles were published in free scientific journals and were available to schools and universities. Robert Maxwell also proposed the practice of paid subscription, and for each individual article. As a result, many educational institutions could not afford expensive information, and the level of education in foggy Albion decreased.
But Maxwell got even richer. However, he was already a media mogul and a lord.
3. Guy de Chauliac
An outstanding French surgeon of the 14th century, who, despite his many merits and in fact the official title of "father of surgery" among modern surgeons, has one unpleasant incident that pushed the development of antiseptics back centuries.
He was the most famous surgeon of the 1300s and part-time a fierce opponent of the work of another surgeon, Theodoric Borgognoni. Theodoric was a surgeon who wrote about his theories of proper wound care and believed that the best thing to do with a wound was to keep it clean.
Guy de Chauliac literally hated what Theodoric wrote, because it directly contradicted the teachings of Galen, the ancient Roman surgeon, who believed that pus is the body's desire for self-healing.
The teachings of the medieval Aesculapius were widely accepted, and it is believed that his delusion set back the development of antiseptics in surgery by about 600 years.
4. The Mongols, the army of the Mongol ruler and commander Hulagu
When they destroyed the libraries in Baghdad that contained much of the past knowledge that set humanity back hundreds of years.
5. Tiberius Caesar, who ordered the execution of the inventor of flexible (vitrum flexile) glass
As a result, the secret of flexible (non-breakable) glass was lost forever. And the story was like this.
The glazier, whose name has not been preserved by history, came to the reception of Emperor Julius Caesar. The craftsman presented a unique bowl - seemingly made of glass, but which, as he claimed, could not be broken.
The emperor tried to do this, but to no avail. Instead of being shattered, the bowl only dented as if it were made of bronze, and the glazier simply took out a hammer and straightened the dent.
Then Tiberius asked if anyone else knew how to produce this type of glass, the inventor replied that he was the only one in the whole world. It was a sentence - by order of Caesar, the inventor was executed.
Why did the emperor act so cruelly and unjustly? He was simply afraid that such an amazing material could devalue gold and silver in the future.
6. Andrew Wakefield
Our contemporary, a former British doctor who made a name for himself after a rigged 1998 study that falsely claimed a link between the measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) vaccine and autism, and for his subsequent anti-vaccine activity.
To a certain extent, his “work” is directly responsible for what happened around the world with the advent of COVID-19 – distrust of vaccines, a decrease in vaccination rates (especially in the West). Opponents believe that he is directly responsible for thousands, tens of thousands of deaths.
Wakefield is believed to have intentionally rigged the results to fit his hypothesis. What for? For money! To sell "safe" vaccines and diagnostic kits.
7. Sultan Selim the Terrible
It was believed, for example, that the Holy Quran could only be copied by hand. Printing was declared blasphemy, and in 1517, during the era of the Ottoman Empire, Sultan Selim the Terrible, on pain of death, banned printing presses in the territory of the empire. The ban lasted 300 years.
The development of printing in the East stopped, but at the same time, the development of calligraphy was at a great height in the Islamic world!
8. Emperor Yongle of the Ming Dynasty in China ordered the burning of Zheng He's fleet
The largest trading and exploratory fleet of the time during his reign in the early 1400s fell under the onslaught of flames. This was the beginning of an era of isolation of Chinese imperial lands that would eventually lead to the collapse of imperial China.
In addition, the wealth of the world as a whole has decreased as a result of reduced trade with China, and if China had continued exploration, it is possible that they, and not the Europeans, would have colonized North America (instead of discovering it and then simply not telling anyone about this)…
9. Muhammad bin Bakhtiyar Khilji
In the 12th century, India had the largest university in the world called Nalanda, where intellectuals from all over the world studied. Then the Turks invaded India. They destroyed almost all the intelligentsia and destroyed the university. They burned the library. According to witnesses, the library continued to burn for 3 MONTHS. This must be the biggest loss for humanity.
10. Sir Mark Sykes
During the First World War, he was considered the greatest British specialist in the Middle East. Known for the fact that, together with the French diplomat Francois Picot, he signed the Sykes-Picot Agreement, according to which the eastern territories of the Ottoman Empire were divided mainly into British and French spheres of influence.
The problem is that the division of borders has passed along religious and tribal unions and formations. Differing cultures, languages, everything mixed up then, inevitably pushing nations into disputes and wars, the echoes of which we still hear.
Imagine the progress, level of education and cooperation that could become a reality if the Middle East were allowed to flourish unhindered, without divisions, naturally?
11. Edward Bernays
He created modern PR, which determined how to control the masses through deceit.
He made a significant contribution to the creation of the modern science of mass persuasion, based not on reason, but on the manipulation of subconscious feelings and impulses.
Bernays combined the ideas on crowd psychology of Gustave Le Bon and Wilfred Trotter with the psychoanalytic ideas of his uncle Sigmund Freud.
12. Cyril of Alexandria
He organized bands of assassins who went around Alexandria and killed everyone who was not a convinced Christian. This included almost all the great minds of that era. Among them, in particular, was Hypatia of Alexandria, one of the greatest minds in history.
13. The one who gave the order to burn the Library of Alexandria
14. Exxon scientists (one of the largest oil companies in the world) who first learned about man-made climate change in the late 70s and decided to hide this fact
15. The top should be Diego de Landa, who burned all the books of the Maya in the name of Christianity on July 12, 1561
16. Ea-Nasir, copper merchant
Our first written texts could have been amazing stories about what life was like at that time. Instead, the records contain people's complaints from the Bronze Age.
17. Queen Victoria is responsible for the deaths of about 60 million people in Brazil, China, India and Ireland
In all these cases, the British crown was involved in the removal of goods from starving areas and led campaigns to spread and aggravate poverty.
18. The one who took possession of all the chests and papers of Nikola Tesla after his death
19. In terms of sheer devastation, perhaps Genghis Khan… is estimated to have killed about 11% of the world's population in a very short period of time.
It's like killing 800 million people in modern times!
20. Charles Babbage - English mathematician, inventor of the first analytical computer
It is unlikely that he did this maliciously, but experts say he was the initiator of hindering the progress of computers for almost 100 years.
In the 1800s (Industrial Revolution), Babbage developed a working prototype of the computer, the Universal Digital Computing Machine. He had interested buyers, but no entrepreneurial spirit.
And what did he end up doing with all this? Nothing! The end product was not produced or sold, and the first prototypes of computers did not appear until the second half of the 1900s. Imagine what would be around us today if we were developing computers for another 100 years?
