Time and time again, we see humans doing the most outrageous stuff in the world. Normally, we associate the phrase “outrageous human” with famous people performing off-beat antics on television, leading us to point to people like Tom Cruise, who outrageously danced on Oprah Winfrey’s couch sometime in the last decade, or singer Solange Knowles, who was recently caught on camera beating Jay-Z up in an elevator. Or this guy’s outrageous music video.
No doubt, those three examples are outrageous, but there are humans in the 21st century who have done WAY MORE outrageous things than any of the aforementioned examples. From people who have a deeply profound love of P. Diddy to a grandma who fell in love with an extremely strange mate, without further ado, here is our list of the ten most supremely outrageous and ridiculous things humans have done in the 21st century.
10. There’s a Guy Who Has Written 100,000 Songs, Filled Over 1,000 Journals, and Uploaded Hundreds Upon of Videos, All of Which Are About Him Wanting to Meet P. Diddy.
Formerly known on YouTube as Humanbeing151, this former internet phenomenon had his YouTube account terminated due to, according to this page on YouTube, “repeated or severe violations of our Community Guidelines…” Yikes! Well, I guess I don’t blame YouTube for getting rid of the guy. Although unfortunately you can no longer look at his account, if you type Humanbeing151 into Google, you can find plenty of archived images, videos, and hours worth of creepy entertainment from a man who really, really want to attract P. Diddy into his life. Maybe it just wasn’t meant to be, Humanbeing151.
9. In 2010, A Grandmother and Grandson Fell In Love and Had a Child Together
According to a story in the Guardian, in 2010 a man tracked down his long-lost grandma 22 years after he was born. Just a few years later, the two have decided to pay a surrogate mother 20,000 euros for them to be able to raise a child together. Although they apparently, according to the article, “could face prison for incest,” the couple states that they are extremely happy together, and they both feel like this is a second chance for them to find happiness. A part of me is always happy when a couple finds themselves to be happy together, but man, this one is just a little too creepy for my taste.
8. A Famous Investor Made Over 20K Per Minute
The highly beloved American Investor Warren Buffett makes, according to a Forbes Magazine article, approximately $23,000 – $25,000 per minute, which amounts to around $11,000,000,000 per year, give or take a couple hundred million dollars. When some people in America go to college, gain advanced degrees, and still find themselves winning a salary of approximately $25k or less in full-time custodian positions, or even less considering the state of our economy, this figure has to make you wonder if the distribution of wealth makes any sense at all in America. Even more compelling, if you make $33,000 per year, according to this article, you are in the top 1% of the richest people in the world! So that means Warren Buffett hits the equivalent of the richest 1% of people in the world every minute and a half. Buffett is a charitable, likeable man who gives away a great deal of his income in philanthropic activities – if only every man who makes twenty grand a minute were like him.
7. Two Writers At a Website Dedicated to Healthy Living Listed McDonalds At #8 On a Top Ten List of the Healthiest Fast Food Restaurants
In 2009, Two writers for the website www.health.com published a curious article that claims McDonalds is the 8th healthiest fast food restaurant in America.
Hmmm….Is it just me, or is this kind of completely ridiculous and outrageous?
I understand I probably don’t have to even go into it, but I suppose I will – McDonald’s has been a countless target for food addiction issues, frying all of their foods, not using well-sourced meat for their beef patties, using questionable materials in their chicken nuggets, and for exceeding caloric limits for a healthy meal by disgusting margins in nearly every single order. Sure, it tastes delicious, but is anyone going to say it is healthy? Maybe this is more of a commentary on the state of fast food, and by putting McDonald’s at #8, they are saying that there is virtually no option for eating healthy at a fast food restaurant. But when you read the article, their words suggest otherwise.
6. Four Strange Men Claimed to Be the Reincarnation of Jesus Christ
In reality, I am sure there are 1,000s of people who think in their minds that they are the Second Coming of Jesus Christ, but in the 21st century, four notable examples stand out: Apollo Quiboloy, Alan John Miller, David Shayler, and Oscar Ramiro Ortega-Hernandez. So why do these four stand out? Well, they are the four who have probably gained the most recognition for their claims to be the Second Coming of JC himself. For example, Alan John Miller has successfully started a new religious movement, the “Divine Truth,” revolving around himself as being Jesus teaching his followers all sorts of moral principles from the Bible. Other notable accomplishments from this group of people include David Shayler, who was a former security officer in Britain turned journalist who believes himself to be the Messiah.
