We all have our bad days, and that's completely normal. In fact, going through the occasional misfortune can effectively shape us into better, well-prepared individuals. We get to be more aware of our surroundings and learn valuable lessons we wouldn't have acquired otherwise. However, everything the following people have endured is something we wouldn't wish on anyone. That said, they have brought immense joy and smiles to millions of people on the internet, so these misfortunes can't be all that bad, right?
It's hard to say exactly what led to such a disaster, but the owner of this vehicle sure as hell cursed like a sailor that day. And who could blame the poor fella? Every other car is perfectly safe and sound. Mother Nature simply decided to bully the crap out of him and no one else.
Let's all have a moment of silence, as this poor child's memories will forever be clouded. A lifetime of PTSD and trauma because some asshole (no pun intended) decided to make its way onto her face. We're all here for you - from a considerable distance - but still here for you.
If you're an Apple product user, then you surely know how much their items typically cost. This poor soul was reminded of this as soon as the front of his screen started dying one pixel at a time. And once the entire laptop went to shit, so did his dignity.
Imagine this: You're with the boys showing off your skills next to a big crowd. The ladies are so thoroughly impressed that one of them considers going for a ride. But then all hell breaks loose the moment your face shifts toward the ground and kisses the pavement. Ouch, we truly feel for you.
When this person decided on a paint job, this is clearly not what he had in mind. The question is, how focused was he on the road to have missed all the liquid splashing all over the back? Let's just hope that paint hadn't dried up just yet.
We all do some crazy stuff to claim a hot chick. We fight bigger men at bars, purchase items that cost much more than we earn, and bend over backwards on occasion. Apparently dogs have the same mentality when marking their territory, albeit in a much simpler fashion.
Dumpster diving can lead to finding highly valuable items, and homeless people actually depend on this for survival when things are tough. What this guy never expected, though, was to make frontpage news for his wild adventures. Was the some dirty baby diaper in there, too? Fingers crossed.
Professional baseball players experience this kind of pain on a daily basis, but that doesn't make things any easier. This picture in particular shows just how sick and tired he is of the constant abuse, even if it means earning millions of dollars to put up with it.
The guy inside the casket must have finally felt at peace, perhaps getting ready to transcend to another plane of existence away from the horrors of his past life. But nope; fate just had to screw him over one last time, didn't it?
Ouch, we feel bad for whomever is forced to give her the bad news. Not so sorry for the victim, though, as those glasses should have clearly helped her read the two big signs on the floor. Oh well, at least the red shirt matches the rest of her back.
Dropping a single egg is enough to send anyone in a blind rage. The floor gets sticky, the entire kitchen smells, and your breakfast plans will likely go down the drain. Now just imagine a dozen eggs taunting you at once first thing in the morning.
It's tempting to ignore the signs that clearly tell us what NOT to do, and this guy is now paying a hefty price. Actually, the entire city is paying the price. We now wonder how anyone could possibly get this thing out of there, considering that very machine is typically the one in charge of doing such jobs.
Let's face it, this is the type of thing you only see in a horror movie. In fact, these cabinets just put the movie Inception to shame. In all seriousness, we can't help but feel for the people that were abruptly awakened by all the broken plates as all hell broke loose.
Okay, so maybe this girl isn't having such a bad day compared to everyone else. But you have to understand something: Nobody can mess with our ice cream! There's a reason America has gotten so fat, and it's because we take our favorite snack very, very seriously.
Our hearts go out to everyone who appreciates a good cup of coffee. Just when you think there's a deal finally available, the coffee shop ends up screwing you over once again. But hey, we gotta admit this is some genius marketing tactic -- after all, do you think it would have even made it to this list?
Celebrities are no strangers to changing their looks for a role. And in some instances, they have to get pretty extreme. From 500-calorie-a-day diets to drinking pints of ice cream, Actors and actresses know what it takes to change their bodies in preparation for a new film.
Charlize Theron is no stranger to gaining and losing weight for movie roles, as we remember her transformation in Monster. Charlize Theron gained close to 50 pounds for her role as Marlo in Tully. Theron said that “for the first time in my life I was eating so much processed foods and I drank way too much sugar. … I remember having to set my alarm in the middle of the night in order to just maintain the weight.”
You’re used Chris Hemsworth's hulk-like figure in Thor, but In the Heart of the Sea required a totally different diet. The movie required the cast members lose a ton of weight to make their stuck-at-sea plight more believable. Chris Hemsworth said there were days when all he ate was one boiled egg, a couple of crackers, and a celery stick.
Anne Hathaway wanted to get serious for her role in Les Misérables, as she was playing Fantine, a starving prostitute with tuberculosis. So Anne Hathaway went on a diet of “rabbit food” to drop 25 pounds. Hathaway explained her diet was essentially just starving herself, but she didn’t want to give details, as she doesn’t want to encourage anyone to copy her emaciated look. She did note that she “just had to stop eating for a total of 13 days shooting,” however. And at one point, her bones became so frail that she reportedly broke her arm.
Matthew McConaughey's portrayal of Ron Woodruff in Dallas Buyers Club, a man with HIV/AIDS, was spot-on, earning him the title of best actor at the Oscars. But it also required a serious physical transformation. Matthew McConaughey said he lost 38 pounds for the role. During filming, he said he lost a lot of energy from eating so little — and he hit plenty of plateaus along the way. Finally, with a strict diet, he got down to 143 pounds. And while he did cardio to help with the weight loss, he said it was 90% what he was eating and portion size.
Hilary Swank had to put on 23 pounds of pure muscle for her role as a boxer in Million Dollar Baby. The process doesn’t sound easy, however. “I started working out five hours a day — I had to eat 210 grams of protein a day,” Swank said. She also mentioned that she had to consume 60 egg whites per day, and when that proved too difficult, she had to drink them. And to keep the muscle on, she would get up and drink protein shakes in the middle of the night.
