Today, my friend called me freaking out because of an online pregnancy test. She was scared because she had no idea that she was pregnant, let alone having a fifteen pound baby. The website is a joke. She goes to an Ivy League school, and I couldn't even get into community college. FML

Common sense is completely different to intelligence. Somebody could be incredibly smart, yet very naive at the same time. It doesn't mean they didn't deserve their place in the College :/

LOL!!!! how is this an FML...I could understand if the friend was the one who posted this but not if you are this doesnt even really have much to do with your life you didnt get accepted to the school...sure but she's the one not smart enough to use common sense to know that the internet wont tell you if your pregnant x.x therefore FHL not yours

It's an FML because the OP, who at least by this anecdote isn't a fucking moron, can't even get into a community college; ie she's applied to MULTIPLE places, even sinking to community colleges which nearly accept just about anyone, and her friend, who at least by this anecdote IS a fucking moron, got into an Ivy-League college; ie she got into a highly prestigious school that usually only takes the absolute best and brightest. The FML is the cruel, cruel unfairness of it all.

Yeah, after writing that comment I did think, "Maybe peeing on the keyboard would have been more appropriate" but I had already made the joke and didn't think it was a big enough of a deal to make the effort to amend it.

this is totally fake. you would have to take a pee sample and send it to the headquarters of the website or whatever, just so they could test it and send the results back to you.

I agree with Icethefrostycat; my brother is super super smart, and could probably go anywhere in life. However, he has no common sense whatsoever. That's my job, and of course, I'm not as smart as he.

Common sense detects jokes, yes, but basic intelligence should detect that you can't take a pregnancy test online. The chick's a bloomin' idiot any way you slice it.

Intelligence and common sense are not the same thing, not even close. Sure a person can be smart....book smart, but has nothing to do how that person will be in real life. Some of the smartest people on paper are often the stupidest idiots ever (ever (ever)) Sadly, that's how the world works. A diploma is more important than having common sense and the know how to ACTUALLY live....pisses me the fuck off, don't worry

That's totally true... and yet I think someone who has enough book smarts, even without a tiny iota of common sense, would know that you cannot take an online pregnancy test, let alone have that test predict the weight of your baby.

I'll go the next step and say that often, intelligence and knowledge is not the same thing, either. This person could've studied hard so they know all the answers to tests, but not necessarily be good at making logical connections on their own.

And on the other hand, there are plenty of bitter idiots who never made it past high school, and now sit around saying, "Oh yeah, he might of went to Yale, but I have STREET SMARTS so I'm smarter than all those fancy college kids." Its funny to see people try to pretend they are some secret genius. No, you are not Matt Damon, this is not Good Will Hunting, and not going to college does not equal street smarts.

well expen, I am not bitter cuz I didn't go to college / graduate high school. I am 20 and pursuing my Bachelors in Business Administration, then to pursue my Masters at a top business school. I don't see the bitterness.... Even though you may have a good degree, it doesn't mean you have to bash on people that didn't graduate high school - it's their own choice to flip burgers and work at mcdonalds their whole life....or work 9-5 on minimum wage and drive all hours of the day in gridlock :)

Yeah, with a 7-9% acceptance rates in places like Princeton and Harvard I don't necessarily believe you can call up your uncle and ask him to accidentally accept you?

I love how you're trying to make yourself feel better for not getting into a place like that! Yeah, I could have made it to Princeton, just a lot of work that I could have done but didn't feel like it! Guess what, I got in Princeton and I've been working my ass off for the last 10 years... so the difference between "could have" and "did" is huge... requires both potential and perseverance, don't know which one you lack...

A radar like screen comes up, and spins around. Then it says "You're not pregnant, but take the test again to make sure!" You take it again "You're pregnant!" It's a boy, blablabla, Then a celebrity is the father. It's dumb as shit.

How is this an F YOUR life? She was the one who should have posted this, not you. It doesn't affect you at all. Unless you're really embarassed to have such a stupid friend. Hehe I probably would be too.

This is just sad. OP's friend sounds like a product of abstinence-only sex education. How else would she not know how a pregnancy test works? Let's all hope she doesn't accidentally get pregnant before she finishes college.
