Most Pointless Things In Life


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 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 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

4 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

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

7 Eyebrows

But you would look really ugly without eyebrows...

They stop sweat going in your eyes!

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

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

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!

17 The Tailbone
18 Pinkie Toe
19 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!

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
