Today, two of my friends condemned me for being "narrow-minded", because I couldn't help but laugh at the thought that someone would believe mermaids actually exist. FML

They actually did exist. They went extinct sometime in the 1500s.

Next thing, OP will be saying that witches, wizards and leprechauns don't exist! Completely absurd!

Originally, "gulllible" was spelled with 4 L's.

60 - It's also not in the dictionary, although "redundant" is in there twice.

12-LIES! Dragons still exist in Skyrim! I saw them myself, but then I took a... Cab to the nearest port and got the **** out of Tamriel.

Seems like the OP failed at logic, because its pretty damn likely that someone who believes in mermaids exists.

Have you seen the show "Mermaids: The Body Found"?!? It's scary proof that mermaids did exist at some point and it's highly possible they still exist today.

Yea, being all female has that effect on a species.

no theyre not extinct. you other idiots, do some research. atlantis & lemuria existed, atlantis still may buy kept off the maps. atlantis was at war with athens. the maya & egyptians & babylonians traded with atlantus, lemuria was an andvanced civilization before atlantis & thats were a number of nephilim children died. it was in the indian ocean. mermaids most certainly existed & still do. mythology isnt fake, its based on a kot of truth. mermaids were even mentioned in egyotian & babylonian txts. they may be a genetic creation like **** salian sapians, a hybrid humanoid.

Yeah. They were all believers in a master-race, so they forced each other to breed for aryan characteristics - that's why they're all sexy and blonde. Unfortunately, they ended up so inbred that they died out from ALL the syndromes. Hitler invented the dugong thing to avoid people associating aryanism with a bunch of dumb mermaids. So sad.

Um have you not seen Little Mermaid or The Thirteenth Year on Disney? That's enough for me to believe they exists; or they wouldn't make movies about it :)

They don't exist. There isn't even a possibility of it. Not any chance. There is a 0.000000000000000000% chance they exist.

75- Can I see the research conducted that led you to that conclusion?

I'm starting to wonder if sense of humor exists now too ...

75- you could have simply said 0% and saved a lot of time

Don't tell me mermaids don't exist until you've explored the whole ocean.

I don't need to explore the world to discover that you're a dumbass.

I really hope the mermaids never read this. It could be considered very offensive. The mermaids are a very fickle people. You never know what they could do.

Question, I never got how a mermaid and merman made a merbaby. My parents just keep telling that merpeople don't exist, but they also said that about the Easter bunny, tooth fairy, and big foot so I know they are liars

Yes 95. I'm the dumbass. Whatever you say... You can't take half a fish and half a human and make them one. Ask any biology person, preferably phd people, and see what they say.

120- They're being sarcastic and it doesn't take someone with a phd to figure that out.

Did you guys see the documentary about mermaids? Once you've seen it, it will leave you wondering.

wlddog 14

Ssssh 122 Now he will think they are not real. THEN who he have nightmares of??

It actually left me pretty creeped out. That

Might be time for some new friends....

unknown_user5566 26

3- Because her friends are open-minded, and aren't quick to condemn other's beliefs? They don't sound like bad friends to have at all, actually.

Well I don't think there's anything wrong with condemning wrong beliefs, how else can a society progress? I'm all for half-believing in crypto-zoology, but anyone who knows anything about biology knows you can't stick a fish ass on a pretty girl and have a viable species. :P

unknown_user5566 26

33- While I see your point, is it really harming anyone that a small percentage of the world's population might believe in Mermaids? I could see condemning people for disagreeing with tried & true facts, but a simple, silly belief? It's similar to condemning those who believe in God, reincarnation, etc. We don't have proof whether or not they truly exist. I just think it's silly to "dump" your friends over something this petty.

Her friends sound like idiots. I think it's stupid her friends were condemning her for pointing out they are idiots. It's obvious mermaids doubt exist.

mduffy08 8

37 - No, no, no. We are not going there. But let's face it, there's a huge difference between mermaids and faith. Mermaids simply don't exist.

Please explain to me how they are different then.

Sorry, I don't see the difference between believing in God(s) and believing in mermaids.

I've seen enough movies to know they exist.

There's about 10 little things I could mention as evidence for their existence, but something that usually intrigues people is that a video of a mermaid was allegedly posted on, but if you visit the website you'll see that the government has sanctioned the page and removed its content. I also would like to point out that I'm not some oddball and I don't blindly believe in any mythical creatures, it's just interesting to think about.

73- why did you post that comment on two different comments?

92, how are those government conspiracies going there? Because every Internet video is real...there isn't photoshop, costumes, and all the tools to fake anything. Nahhhh nothing like that exists.

lol, 121 shut the **** up. all you've been doing is spouting the same crap each comment. does it really tick you off that people accept the possibility of something "mythical" (or some form of it) being real? do you dream of merpeople and cry at night? do peopwe with fish taiws scawe you? aww, poorbabywannacookie?

Pretty_Pink_Lady 10

121- I'm not saying everything on the Internet is real. I'm not even saying this is real. What I am saying though is that it's kinda cool to think about and brushing something off as fake without further investigation is sort of dumb.

Comment moderated for rule-breaking.

Show it anyway

Huh? The World Champion Chicago Cubs don't exist.

I_Hug_Cats 26

47 I think that was the point...

I was going to say something mean but I had time to edit so I won't ...

olpally 32

Cubs fan here... 105 years of misery starting next year without a World Series title...

#80_Looks like it's going to stay that way. My condolences. Love Wanky Dog, from the home of the World Champion SF Giants!

olpally 32

Thanks.. Haha cute dog! And we share the same birthday. Interesting. Congrats to your giants! They earned that!

No, no. Santa IS real. Don't you dare tell me he isn't.

68- never hold back... What's the worst that could happen? You'll get thumbs down? Just so you know that happened with your current comment

I'm not against this, but seeing isn't believing, just because we haven't seen it doesn't mean it's not there.

BoredReader88 5

How can you say they don't exist considering we haven't explored about 80% of our oceans. For all we know Atlantis and Bikini Bottom could exist

Yeah, it's exactly because of that unknown quantity that it's stupid for anyone to believe they exist, because there's no evidence one way or the other. Honestly. -_-

BubbleGrunge 18

There's no concrete evidence of God either, but religion is heavily followed.

So Bikini Bottom exists in Bikini Lagoon after all the bombs dropped.

Well, when you really think about you can't definitely prove that something doesn't exist.

If you're not making the claim, then the burden of proof doesn't rest with you. Onus is on the believer.

winkydog4056 16

#6_I have on good authority happen to KNOW Bikini Bottom exists. The problem is that Mr. Crabs lives in Bikini Bottom. No one wants to suffer the same fate. I mean do YOU want crabs in your bikini bottom!?

*NOT TALKING CHEESE. Talking sponge. Get your facts Straight.

winkydog4056 16

#39_Fellow grammar nazi. Wanky Dog intentionally misspelled 'Krabs'. Many apologies if you cannot get past it.

9- You're right. I never commented on this FML. This comment is a figment of your imagination. No one else can see this comment but you.

But I'm reading this. Does this mean I am you?

I don't know about that. The little mermaid made me cry, and make believe things never make me cry.

Hiimhaileypotter 52

First, I love your name. Second, I feel your pain. (Hey, that kinda rhymed! No? Okay). A girl I know still believes in vampires, and she's 17.

I_Hug_Cats 26

HP- that's because she wants to believe that a pale gentleman will save her from a wayward van. Silly fangirl.

vampires are real to an extent. I had a friend who was brainwashed by his parents. the whole family truely believes their vampires. they drink blood and everything. Do they really exist? no,but people do believe they are really vampires. nice little story there.

People who can drain psychic energy from others' bodies MAY exist, but look at the subject matter: psi energy is little more than pseudo-science to begin with. The Hollywood blood-suckers we all know, however, are no more than imaginative products of religious dogma and outdated superstitions. The only reason 113's friend's parents believed they were vampires were because they believed their own little fantasy that they conjured. They would not require drinking another's blood for sustenance. Not saying I'm disagreeing with you, 113. :)

unknown_user5566 26

What will come up missing next? Your grammar skills, apparently. Will the madness end? Stay tuned!
