Top Ten Things People Should, but Probably Will Never, Learn FromHumans are supposed to be the most intelligent creatures on Earth...so why do we hardly ever learn by our mistakes. Pretty silly, huh?
This list may seem cynical but it's just how it is and I'm sorry (a word I'll probably repeat again at some point)
The Top Ten
History repeats itself and we know it. Humanity has fallen for many mistakes that had already been made, and it will probably fall for more. - Martinglez
Why do we never learn? Making the same mistakes time and time again. Why can't we just say "okay...that was bad. Not going there again." But we don't. - Britgirl
Gah! All the time! We say some pretty stupid, tactless or embarrassing things sometimes and as soon as they leave our lips, we regret them! But does it stop us from committing a verbal catastrophe again (possibly even later in the day)? I don't think so... - Britgirl
Every time I say something stupid, I just wish I can learn to shut up. - Delgia2k
This is why I find love hard. - Userguy44
We say sorry all the time. But do we always mean it? If we did, we wouldn't have to keep repeating it. - Britgirl
We forget when we said sorry and we do things wrong again. I said sorry a lot, but I never meant it. - Userguy44
It's true everyone say sorry but they actually didn't mean it - Righteous
Everyone makes mistakes. We even have to deal with other’s mistakes. - Userguy44
Surely if we watch other people fall something will kick in inside of us to not follow in their footsteps - but no, we not only try their shoes on but we trip over our own feet because of it.
A lesson: Never try on other peoples' shoes... - Britgirl
This NEVER happens to us higher-order thinkers, because...I'd like a Whopper, fries and an...oil change, please... don't... feed the monkeys, madam, but in the morning, I'll be sober.
We will surely never learn if we constantly rely on others. We need to stand alone to make our own mistakes (again and again and...see a pattern forming here)? - Britgirl
I absolutely hate it when people break promises.
I don't break promises, I merely have a rethink. - Britgirl
I put this last because some of us actually do learn from this after we watch the affect it can have on others...
But there are still some foolish people out there who will NEVER learn. - Britgirl

He has a point. - Britgirl
