24 Times People Had No Clue What They Were Looking At And The Internet Came To The Rescue

You’ve surely come across something that doesn’t look like anything you’ve ever seen before.

If you have, you’ll be happy to know that there is an entire subreddit called “What Is This Thing?” where people post photos of unidentifiable objects, and the internet comes to the rescue to tell them exactly what the object is.

Here is a collection of people’s most interesting finds:

1) Reddit user the_silly_fish posted a photo of their band-aids which look as if some green substance has grown on them. They wanted to know if anyone could tell them what the green stuff was. Reddit user I_Me_Mine came to the rescue and answered, “My guess, as a former R&D director at an OTC drug lab, is that the acrylate in the adhesive has absorbed too much ambient moisture over the last five years (or has been exposed to higher-than-usual temperatures and lower-than-usual humidity) and is precipitating out of the adhesive solution that keeps a band-aid stuck to your skin. The green is likely a result of that precipitation leaching some component of the bandage color that’s green at the right pH. These both explain the uniformity of color and crystallization, but since medical devices like bandages don’t require ingredient lists on their packaging, I can’t say what it might be specifically. Edit: Or they’re sprinkles.”


3) Reddit user BundleOfSticks556 posted a photo of a horrifying massive alien-looking creature and wrote, “What is this demonic looking creature.” The response came from Reddit user spooky_spaghetties who wrote, “Male Creatonotos gangis moth with its scent glands out to attract females.” It’s unclear where BundleOfSticks556 found the moth, but it is certainly the stuff of nightmares.


4) Reddit user ianf2k17 posted a photo of an ancient keyboard and wrote, “An old Samsung PC Keyboard… What is the coffee cup key for?” Reddit user mrrp responded with “It activates the screen saver.” Which makes sense if you think about it, but it’s the jokes that took the cake. One Reddit user responded “Cookie Dispenser”, another commented “Santa Claus”.
