16 People Who Won't Let Anything Stop Them

Diply 12 Mar 2018

We've always heard that perseverance is admirable and we should never give up on something, but is this really true? Or should the saying go, "If at first you don't succeed, do something else?"

To answer this, I researched the problem in the best way possible: scrolling through random pictures.

And what have I found? While there's an exception or two (and we're gonna get to those), not being a quitter is a good thing.

1. I think that a lot of us would try out some tech that we found on the ground, but this guy went even further with it.

Most people facing this situation would think, "Oh, I guess it's busted," or "This is actually a calculator," but not him!

2. Well, I suppose there should be at least a couple of upsides to the trials of adulthood.

You may have to deal with work and taxes, but at least you're free to make a Gushers by the Foot monstrosity without mom throwing it away.

3. No matter how boring a class gets, this young man will never stop keeping his eyes on the prize.

You might have noticed that he has his headphones in, but come on, he's not a robot. Plus, one ear is still listening to the teacher.

4. If they're anything like my friends, these two are probably unlocking lost knowledge of like, 50 inside jokes right now.

It's gotta be tough spending 40 years trying and failing to explain why each one was funny in the first place.

5. I'll bet that everyone this guy shared his idea with told him he would get tired of it before he even finished the first one.

If they were talking to me, they would have been right, but that's probably also why there's no meme about me.

6. Yeah, if burning a tobacco pit into their seat doesn't inspire someone to quit smoking, I'm not sure what will.

I don't know, maybe they'll realize that being a quitter isn't always so bad when they try to resell this car.

Good luck with that one.

7. Well, I suppose we can applaud this guy for wanting to do right by the new family. It's hard being a single mother.

And so, I guess it's best to just ignore the fact that a cat can't really understand that concept and take the support.

8. I guess the old saying holds true. When a stranger texts you about her dress, make sure you have a wife, or at least five kids.

And it's a good thing too, because I had no idea what my grandma was talking about with that one.

9. Haha, I get the feeling that this kid is treating that "you're done" as a "you've won."

Instagram | @will_ent

After all, I get the impression that the parents aren't getting this dog back without a fight. Not after this kid made such a well-reasoned and impassioned argument.

10. Yeah, that art degree won't seem so ridiculous when this person uses it to start a new wave of hand-drawn memes.

Although I can't help but wonder if drawing them really badly makes them danker or less dank. 'Cause mine ain't looking like this.

11. If you're wondering what obstacle was getting in the way of this couple's selfie, I want to know what it's like to live without gravity. 

Instagram | @meme.w0rld

Whether they somehow got this on the first try or not, they beat that menace. This is for every lost balloon.

12. I can't say I've ever been so determined about something that it inspired me to tunnel into the ceiling.

But I guess you can't put a price on your students' paranoia. Now they'll behave even when they get a substitute because they'll think it's a trap.

13. Yeah, this is one rule that I can't see too many people trying to enforce.

I don't know what distressing reason this place could have for not allowing dogs, but the idea of someone being hard-hearted enough to say no to that face is scaring me.

14. Not only has he got the chair down perfectly, but he's probably nailed this even better than Pee-wee himself.

Instagram | @meme.w0rld

Let's put it this way, did we ever see Pee-wee rockin' those rad heart sunglasses? Yeah, I didn't think so.

15. Yikes, I'm suddenly reminded of how valuable it is to know the difference between not giving up and not taking the hint.

Just because somebody's invested several thousand dollars into their stalking, that doesn't mean we're suddenly OK with it.

If anything, it makes us more uncomfortable.

16. None of these guys were trying to hear anything like "You're too big for that now" or "This is a really bad idea."

They set out to recreate their childhood photo and that meant they were gonna do it, no matter how painful the experience obviously was.
