Most Pointless Things In Life

Britgirl

The Top Ten

1 The Other Half of the Countdown Clock

It NEVER gets used. Well, does it? - Britgirl

They use it to reset the clock

Yeah this is so true!

2 Boring TV Adverts

B.G. not to be pedantic, but people do watch them. It's just that they force them onto us via T.V. and nobody WANTS to watch them. Everyone in Britain knows Confused.com thanks to the most stupid ads on British Broadcasting. They are seriously pointless, though. - PositronWildhawk

This gets my number one - fuadmondeo

No one wants adverts!

I totally agree. T.V. adverts are just a huge waste of time. It is just the main reason why T.V. channels earn money. They are totally pointless and no one actually wants to watch them, unless you are retarded. - dorothydaawesome

3 Middle School Popularity

It's in every school... But it is kind of annoying, it's like "We're better than you" and I'm like walking past them like:"laugh out loud derp"

Yeah, it's desirable to become popular, until you're on the streets working as a sign holder in an itchy costume, as I'm told. - ethanmeinster

I am sort of popular due to my unique name, but actually being popular stuffs u under tons of responsibilities if you really figure out

I'm so glad I'm in my last year of Middle school

4 Moles

Just ruins your appearance! No benefit, no harm. They're more pointless than sickness...just useless. - emraldYE

They Pop up on your skin and hang around like an unwelcome Aunt - Britgirl

Your so right

5 Racism

I find this not only Pointless But Stupid! - Curti2594

6 Marmite

Hello person with no name yes I've seen the Marmite advert; it's clever and funny. Give Marmite a good home - just don't send it to mine! - Britgirl

What? I love Marmite! If Marmite is pointless, then so is food. - PositronWildhawk

Hello person with no name. laugh out loud britgirl. - DunnaNunnaBatman

I hate Marmite but love the advert for it. Have you seen it, Britgirl?

7 Homework

You already learn enough crap - hockeykid58

Pointless enough. No use, never helps me learn. Waste of time - wren6

Cause as if six hours of school wasn't enough. - LordDovahkiin

We are to stressed by school popularity (which is a so pointless)and school grades so we don't need more work humans need more. Fun at least stop home work

8 Eyebrows

But you would look really ugly without eyebrows...

They stop sweat going in your eyes!

Tiny bugs live there!

Eyebrows make you look good also, and weird also..but shaving them is a biggest mistake someone can ever do

9 Mirrors

You look in them and hardly ever like what you see. Why bother with them? - Britgirl

Yes. I think that everyday

Mirrors ARE the best...helps a lot in
makeup
hair-styling
adoring beauty
seeing spots and pimples and curing them
love dem

10 High School Popularity

Basically at my school if you are a girl who owns those black Nike shoes, white black-striped Adidas shoes, white or black hi-top Converse All-Stars, and Keds, texts and goes on social media all the time when there are strict rules about phone usage, talks all the time in class, laughs high-pitched in a very annoying way, have blonde ombre hair if you have dark hair, worships Kim Kardashian, Kylie Jenner, Drake and any popular rapper, listens to only rap music, occaisonally wears those dad caps and has the current model of the iPhone, you are a real student. And that's stupid. I wish people like those actually understood people with social anxiety and sensitivity (like me).

What's the point when you're there for 4 years... - iimidnightstarz

Best experience ever... you get popular if you are good in nature with frnds, smart enough with boys and attituditional to enemies

The Contenders

11 Heavy Metal

But... I like metal );

Rap is pointless not heavy metal

Yes, it gives me headaches, and is incredibly annoying. - moonwolf

RAP AND HIP HOP IS POINTLESS!

12 Coasters

Who actually uses them? - Britgirl

There not pointless they are there for you to have fun. That’s it. - ThemeParkChasers

13 Stuffed Animals

My 14 year old cousin is still in love with hers. - moonwolf

Love them forever

14 Rust
15 American Remakes of British TV Shows/Comedies

Sorry, USA, but what's the point? - Britgirl

16 Smokers

Smokers aren't pointless but the act of smoking is. And pretty disgusting. - Britgirl

When I'm at spode and I want to get out, there are always smokers hanging out at the door. It's so annoying!

Well your basically calling 99 percent of my family pointless.

17 The Tailbone
18 Pennies

Next time I see a penny, I will not pick it up from the ground. What's so great about pennies? Each one only cost one cent & what do you buy with only one cent? Nothing! I hate pennies. If I own a penny right now, I'm going to give it to someone else.

They aren't that bad!

19 Pinkie Toe
20 Paintings by Picasso

A Britgirl after my own heart. This chap is deluded to think this is art. It's all about the Monet, Monet, Monet for me. - Barry2013

His "art" looks like a three year old's.

I appreciate art like Monet but agree about Picasso. Would you rather have an eye for a chin or a nose for an ear? It't rather confusing and blatently bizarre. I, too find this pointless. - Britgirl

Picassos mom: what are you doing
Picasso: painting mom... oh! Oops my ear just fell off - hockeykid58

21 Digimon Digimon “Digimon” is a term commonly used to sum up several Japanese anime series based on the Bandai virtual pet brand “Digimon” (Dejimon). As of 2017, there are 7 series: “Digimon Adventure” (1999), “Digimon 02” (a.k.a. “Digimon Adventure 02”) (2000), “Digimon Tamers” (2001), “Digimon ...read more.

Digimon did not come before Pokemon! Pokemon was created in 1995, while Digimon was created in 1997. Both are great though!

Digimon is pointless ripoff of Pokemon - dinosaur

Actually, digimon came BEFORE Pokémon

22 Horror Movies

Horror movies are awesome they provided great villains amazing stories (silence of the lambs anyone) and of course to scare people - samanime

There is one point is to get scared. But other than that there is no point. - funnyuser

23 Broken Pencils

In two ways, broken pencils are pointless. Particularly the blunt half. - PositronWildhawk

24 Rap
25 Religion

€�Evolution, baby! ”

26 Frustums
27 Two-Part Movie Finales
28 High School Exams/Tests/Quizzes

Actually results in more dropouts than graduates, as proven by expert studies. Lupe Fiasco was lucky enough to graduate it. Even Eminem dropped out of high school... - SelfDestruct

Tests actually are a big part of your grade. - Pony

29 "Vegetarians" That Eat Fish

During lent, Christians avoid eating meat of a Friday. But they can eat all the fish they want. That is silly. If you're gonna avoid meat, at least keep fish out of your diet. Please, fish is just as much meat as steak, pork or chicken. You're not a vegetarian in any way if you eat fish. End of story. - Lanturnizer6

30 Creepy Ads

It creeps the heck out of me

31 Physical Education

Hate P.E. so much. It is unfair and murderous, and was designed to destroy your dignity. - PositronWildhawk

34 Discrimination

It's pointless to discriminate & it's down right mean! - Curti2594
