Top Ten Unimportant Things Which are Considered "Important"

This list came about when two women sitting behind me on the bus were moaning about how the wind has messed up their hair and how they "look a fright" and having to rush to the nearest mirror to "sort out" their face, like it's the end of the world! They should have seen the state of me to realise that some things are just not that important.

Feel free to add what you consider is an unimportant "important" thing if you like. Or maybe doing so is just not that important :)

The Top Ten


I don't really care about looks, beyond personal hygiene and health. Beyond that, this whole concern about appearance and looks in our culture is not only ridiculous but dangerous, encouraging disgusting things like plastic surgery and whatnot. - Mrveteran

I'm not appreciating myself, But many people like me for my looks But I hate that. I want People to like me for who I'm, for my heart, for my thoughts not for my looks. Beauty is in Soul not in Facial Features - Righteous

Yes I care about my appearance, but I'm not going to go all out and try to outdress everyone. I just throw on a jacket and some jeans and be happy with it - Jonerman

My mom once told me to not go to school until I "fix my looks", and I was already late to school. Why do I have to look pretty? Looks NEVER mattered anyway! - XxDarkStorm_PhoenixMothxX


The airheaded worshiping the brain-dead. And the culture continues to unravel.

People like celebrities too much

I accidently voted, sorry.

Celebrities are all humans just like everyone else, but what would Harambe be? - Mcgillacuddy

Superfast broadband

I don't have superfast broadband. How terrible! I could be homeless, lacking in food, dying and many other more horrible things. But my lack of superfast broadband... that's the worst! - Mrveteran

Other peoples' opinion of you

I liked your comment, V, and I agree. I think the same. I have very few friends and a loving family and it's their opinion of me that matters, not other people I don't care about. But other people do care. It seems to be so important for some people to have their ego massaged at every opportunity, even if they don't care about the people they get it from. - Britgirl

Ever since a little while back, I stopped caring about someone's opinion on me because it, well, wasn't very nice or true and I've realized going about on my normal life is so much easier without caring what people think, - AnonymousChick

Everyone would prefer to be liked, T, but never, ever, at the cost of pretending to be someone else. Works for me. Maybe I can count my friends on fewer than the fingers of one hand, but they're actually friends. Not just people I happen to know. Nuther good list.

Peoples opinions of you could be viewed as important for certain people for the following reason.
-It could help you with self improvement if you have certain issues. This could lead to making more friends, and getting a girlfriend/boyfriend because you can learn to get rid of your annoying tendencies. - guitarwiz1964


Holidays are important, because they can show our human side. They show emotion and celebration. Valentines day is a clear example, because it shows ones love for each other. Another example is Christmas/Hanukah expressing and celebrating ones religious beliefs. - guitarwiz1964

Holidays are important. - Catacorn

Shouldn't be about the holiday per se, but about the people you care about. (Damn. I be deep this mornin'. What the hell happened? :).

V, I was actually referring to those people who moan about only being able to go on one holiday abroad this year instead of the usual two, because money is "tight".
Shall we take a minutes' silence for them? You're right, though, it isn't about where you go or what you do, it's who you are with that matters. You ARE being deep today! :). - Britgirl


While having mountains of money isn't a necessity, the point should be made that a certain amount of wealth is important, because it will pay for necessities like food, shelter, and clothing. - guitarwiz1964

Money is totally unimportant... unless you don't have it.

Remember what we read in schools?
If Wealth is lost nothing is lost
But If Health is lost something is lost
& If " Character " is lost everything is lost - Righteous

Whether or not you or someone else is still a virgin

I hate it when people boast that they've lost their virginity, as if it's something to be proud of.

Oh please. It's rare someone boasts about being a virgin. And don't act like it's worse. They are equally annoying. Point is, people should keep their private life as just that. Private.

Ya got me! I been spoilt.

tru - guitarwiz1964

Let's just say I cain't wear white, which is just as well, bein' a slob 'n' all:).

Marital status

Ya mean, worryin' bout not bein' married, or worryin' bout the gorilla someone else might be married TO? ;).

Being popular

Haha... It is true. Being Popular is boring for me cause everyone love to do that. I'm unique I love being different & Reserve - Righteous

I'm different and proud. I would hate to be popular. - LemonComputer

Ya know, Beege . There were a few subversive lines near the end of "The Wizard Of Oz." The one that here applies is, "A heart is not judged by how much you love, but by how much you are loved by others." Aside from being a rejection of Christian principles, it was a sneaky piece of collectivist propaganda both at the political level, and the personal level, where it inserts the damaging idea that self-worth is derived from others' opinion. Deviously devised to suppress the individual; creating a social need to go along with the herd, over a cliff, if necessary. Giv'er a think, fore ya decide I'm crazy (may be too late for that:)).

The latest gadgets

The latest gadgets are not vital for life, but is viewed important by many. These devices assist people make talk with loved ones from across the earth, view the news, give alerts on heath issues and help people drive more efficiently through gps systems. You wouldn't have even be able to have posted this list without the latest gadgets, or make plans with friends. - guitarwiz1964

Important for me. :P - LemonComputer

The Contenders

Jesus Christ Jesus Christ was born in Bethlehem, Palestine. He was born to Mary, as the bible says "she was found with child of the Holy Ghost" (Matthew 1:18). He was both man and God (John 20:28). According to the bible He is God alone (Deuteronomy 6:4). more.

Someone is going to go burn in the fiery pits of hell and be killed a million times over for putting this here! - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Who put Jesus on this list?

What is important about a random dead guy?

What? - shawnmccaul22


Wow, who added this? Thanksgiving is very important. Ungratefulness and a sense of entitlement are a huge problem in our society. The fact that someone added this just further proves my point. Ugh.

If Thanksgiving is so important, why is America the only country in the world that celebrates it? Thanksgiving is just like every other American-Only holiday - Nothing but an excuse to eat a huge amount, an excuse for extreme life-threatening cases of obesity. - LemonComputer

What idiot thinks Thanksgiving isn't important? - 906389

They're celebrating how they wiped out the native population! Ever seen a native American celebrating thanksgiving?


Really I don't think this is unimportant. - Powell

What other people like


If you consider birthdays unimportant, you must be fun at parties.

In all seriousness, why is this even on the list? - LemonComputer
