It’s Official, Human Beings Are Retarded

Honest to God, I actually read the words below just now on a real website while unsubscribing from a real newsletter.

“if you are unsure what your email address is that you are subscribed under, this is located in your ezine below the Unsubscribe Link.”

Let’s give these people a pass on the poor wording and read that sentence again, and let its meaning truly sink in.

“if you are unsure what your email address is that you are subscribed under, this is located in your ezine below the Unsubscribe Link.”

I hope that all of you realize what this means. The people who run this website felt that they had to put that statement there either because they are stupid, or more likely because somebody had trouble with this concept. This means that for there to be no mind-bending stupidity involved here, we are expected to believe that it is entirely possible for the following to take place innocently and completely by accident.

Somewhere out there in the world, the same world in which you and I live, there is a person who is wanting to leave a mailing list that he somehow signed up for that is being sent to an email address that he doesn’t remember having, and the only way to do that is to check that address, find the right email, and then click a link that says unsubscribe on it. Or if he starts out knowing what the address is, he would have to forget it completely between the time he clicks the link and when he is asked to enter it into the confirmation box. He then has to send an email to the webmaster presumably from another email address alerting him that he is having trouble unsubscribing from a newsletter at an address he can’t remember through a link in that very newsletter that he just finished clicking on. Or if it was option 2 and he forgot his email address while waiting for the page to load, he would have to forget how to read, making him unable to check which email address he is currently logged into, in which case he’s got bigger problems than some jokes he doesn’t want anymore. Yes, my head is spinning too.

I don’t believe in God, but it’s becoming more and more apparent to me as the years pass that we were definitely put here simply for the purpose of amusing someone or something. There is simply no other way to explain something like this.
