What Is Dystopia?
Dystopia is something many believe to be the imagination of a fiction author. It’s usually an imagined world where people lead wretched, dehumanized, fearful lives.
Something like the worlds created in I Am Legend or The Maze Runner. But could that be our future? Or is it our present? How would we be able to tell?
When talking about Dystopia, many refer to it as the imagination we once had as a child. At some point or another, we all envisioned what our version of the future would look like.
Some may have thought of flying cars, whereas others might have envisioned bionic dogs. But very few have come to the conclusion that our dystopia is already here.
Are We Living In One?
Some people believe that we are already living in a dystopia. It’s just not as fancy as we thought it would be. With no flying cars or bionic pets, it’s been deemed a boring dystopia.
But would you be able to believe that theory? Let’s dive into some real-life encounters of boring dystopia and see if there’s any truth to the theory.
We’ve all been to the drive-thru at some point or another, but none of us have taken it this far. We can’t help but wonder what those paramedics must’ve been thinking or how this patient managed to convince them to do this.
But we sure hope that meal he wanted to get was worth all the effort.
During the pandemic, many people’s lives were turned upside down. But luckily, the staff and owners of this 7-11 were committed to opening their arms to those in need.
It might only have been for people under 18, but at least they were making an effort. And because of that, many youngsters were able to fall asleep with something in their stomachs.
Teaching The Alphabet
Back in the day, the alphabet was taught with the use of songs and rhymes. But it seems like that is no longer the case.
The song we all knew as kids had been replaced by something rather baffling. S for Subway, anyone? How about a W for Walmart? Is it just us, or does this seem harder than the rhyme?
The Worth Of Time
We all know how valuable time can be. But it seems that not all of us see that value in the same way.
You might think free time is more valuable than anything else and thus think that you should be valued for the time you put in. But this company believes that such a mindset is very detrimental.
This seems like a sweet, innocent family photo at first. But did you notice the object in Mom’s hand? That’s right. She’s holding a trusty Alexa.
But that isn’t what the picture is about, either. As it turned out, their baby had just said his first word. Can you guess what it was? It was, in fact, Alexa.
Many people are afraid of facial recognition programs these days, but this is taking it to the next level. Who would’ve thought that Anti-Facial recognition makeup was a thing?
Well, now we know that it isn’t just a thing. It also makes us look pretty cool. It’s almost as if we’re going to war. But we wonder how long it’s going to take to get that off.
Need A Kidney
Our hearts truly go out to this man. Dealing with a condition that requires a kidney transplant is one thing. But having to ask strangers for that kind of help is an entirely different story.
We just hope he managed to go viral, as requested. And that he got the kidney he so desperately needed.
Who would’ve thought that escaping poverty could be so easy? All we’ve got to do is follow those five easy steps, and then we’d be Scott-free.
But doesn’t that make you wonder? If escaping poverty was that easy, why are there still so many poor people out there? Did they miss the point somehow? Did they not see the sign?
Summarizing A Millennial
We’re pretty sure this person was just trying to vent when they wrote that message. But we’re also convinced that they did not see that response coming.
We don’t know who said it best, the poster or the commenter. But both of them had a pretty valid point. This definitely shows how drastically things have changed.
Some Time Off
We don’t know whether this post should make us laugh or cry. It’s great that the company decided to close its doors so that its staff could see the eclipse. But that timeframe is devastating.
Three minutes? Was that really all they got? Couldn’t they just make it half an hour or a bit more?
We all know about the Pokémon Go phase that happened a few years ago. But this is taking things to a whole new level.
This is an actual advertisement from the Navy. A recruitment poster that uses an online game to recruit people. And they even managed to make it sound enticing. Who wouldn’t want to catch all the Pokémon in the world?
This one is sad on so many levels. The pandemic really touched so many people in so many different ways. But this statement is one that is crushing.
We all know that ventilation was key at the height of the pandemic, but for that to be restricted because of something so terrible is gut-wrenching. We can only imagine what this poor teacher must’ve gone through.
What Is A Job?
This is by far one of the most astonishing recruitment advertisements we have ever seen. Back in the 1980s, a job was so much more than just a job.
It was a career. A path you chose because you loved what you did. But it seems that in recent times, a job isn’t what you do. It’s who you are.
Telling your kids about Santa Claus is one thing. It’s a tradition that has been passed down through generations. But making them believe that he’s constantly watching them is a whole different story.
We don’t know what the advertisers had in mind with this one. But it’s definitely giving off some creepy vibes that could end up terrifying a child.
We’ve got to admit that retiring in a place where all the amenities are close by could be a blessing. You don’t have to walk too far, and you could even make a trip out of it with some of your friends.
But this ad campaign is sure to have quite a few people in stitches. It’s by far one of the funniest things we’ve seen.
Value Of Cash
Imagine receiving this receipt when you draw some cash. There are a lot of contradictions going on here. And we’re still trying to find out what the poor dog has to do with any of this.
We don’t know what to make of this image. Or what point the company is trying to make. But maybe that’s the magic behind it.
With the world being as vast as it is, there are a whole lot of places to visit. There are countless catalogs talking about the reasons why you should visit specific places, but this magazine tops them all.
We’d like to buy it just to see what places it’s talking about. Would it tell us when and why they will disappear?
Siri is capable of many things. And there are probably a few things only experienced owners will know. But we don’t think this one is common knowledge at all.
Did you know that Siri had this feature built-in? And just to clarify, it’s nothing special. It actually comes as a standard part of the product.
So Many Luxuries
It seems like many of us had this idea of free time all wrong. Some, if not all, of us, saw it as a usual thing. A time to break away from the stress we face on a daily basis.
But this bank wants to assure us that our assumption was wrong. Always remember that free time is a luxury, not a given.
Just A Teacher
We can’t help but wonder what happened to this poor soul for them to take such drastic measures. And it’s not just the note, either. They actually opened their glove compartment to prove there was nothing in there.
This person sure has a great sense of appreciation and humor. And we can only hope any potential thieves take the advice.
This is a strong message for the sales representatives that work at this company. But it kind of has the opposite effect on those trying to purchase products there.
Maybe they should’ve opted for a more hidden position instead of putting it in a spot where it could be seen by all. That way, they might not have to push those sales so hard.
Gang Boss Or Hero?
We don’t know what to make of this story. We’d like to start by saying that kidnapping should never be condoned, even if it’s for the good of others.
We’re 100% sure there was a better way to deal with the situation. If the nurse knew what was expected of her, she might’ve even agreed to help those people.
The title of this novel really had us scratching our heads. We can’t help but wonder what message the author is trying to convey. Or what God and a CEO have in common.
Is it because they’re monitoring our progress? Is it because they punish us for our wrongdoings? We guess we’ll have to read it to find out.
This person really has a way with words. But it seems like they hit the nail right on the head. There is a clear difference between the rich, middle class, and poor. And it’s no laughing matter.
However, there are always conditions and methods that need to be taken into account. Could the company afford to pay that extra wage? Or is it just wishful thinking?
Media Vs. Reality
The topic of media and the truth of matters has been a hot topic for quite some time now. And it isn’t always the easiest issue to address.
Many people believe that the media outlets are misleading us in some way or the other. But is that really the case? Or does it have to do with what they feel is the highest priority at any given time?
This is another sad case of citizens feeling like the system is failing them. There are many people out there who are forced to choose between marriage and healthcare, and what this couple did seems to be the only logical option.
But do things really need to be that way? Isn’t there a better alternative?
Just A Blanket
This is by far one of the most ridiculous things we have ever seen. All the man asked for was a blanket, which couldn’t have cost so much.
But instead of going with the cheaper option, the state spent approximately $20,000 fighting him. Was that point really worth proving? Couldn’t they just give him the blanket instead?
