Top 10 things that went wrong and it’s good, failures that feel good

As someone I just made up said, “Success in life is good, but sometimes it’s not bad to fail when you had a bad idea at the start”. It’s a real-life lesson that happens to be confirmed when we look at all the things that almost changed our existence in the wrong direction, but luckily failed.

The Metaverse

The Metaverse was supposed to be our new virtual world, the one where we would all live in harmony and explore infinite universes… but it fell apart. Why ? Because we all realized that it was cheum, and that on top of that we still had to give up fortunes to pay for avatars, houses, and services, and that ultimately it was still a created world only for the wealthy. If it’s to reproduce what was already rotten in reality, it’s not worth it.

Google glasses

Google Glasses were supposed to be the next technological revolution, but they flopped. Not because people found themselves walking through walls trying to read their WhatsApp messages, not because they were scornful of looking shit, and not because dogs were staring at them, a wondering look on the street. No, we simply understood that filming one’s life in its entirety could lead to a lot of problems with image rights and the right to privacy. In short, we avoided a rather small dystopia.

The hoverboard

Emulating Marty McFly on his hoverboard was the futuristic dream of every 80s kid. To see the horror it was to be disillusioned. The ridiculous machine was therefore only adopted by children of the 2000s who, if we were lucky, broke their faces in shame on the asphalt before our eyes. Even the scooter is better than this thing.

Zemmour’s campaign for the presidential election

The guy played on people’s racist strings for months and it almost worked. But if he rose very high in the opinion polls, before it was falling very low. Like a kind of yoyo, but an evil yoyo that never comes back up. We still escaped a damn nightmare.

The invasion of the Capitol by Trump supporters

Imagine if it had worked: Trump would have become a dictator and no one in America could ever say anything bad about him. But how twisted, we all realized again that this guy was a sick man who was ready to do anything to stay in power. Finally, “everyone”, no. He still has a good shovelful of supporters who obviously don’t care about the concept of democracy.

The invasion of Ukraine

Well, I won’t go too far, because the story is not over yet, but beforehand, Putin was wrong to think that he would succeed in annexing Ukraine. The Russians have sunk into an impossible quagmire, and so far they have lost far more than they have won. Is it good for their face? Mmmmmmmm yes of course.

The relationship with my ex

The girl farted too many dishes against the walls and tried to reach my face so it started making a big plate budget. It’s not so bad to have put a few hundred kilometers between us.

Vanilla cola

Imagine if this flavor had become very successful and had ended up infiltrating itself into our daily lives? That would have been terrible. Personally, I should have cut some of my friends out of my life because they would have liked this horror. Maybe I would even report them to the police. I’d rather limit them to smoking crack.

Christine Boutin’s book

With only 38 copies sold in 5 years, the book What is Christian Democracy? by Christine Boutin has made what you call a monumental flop. But isn’t that the sign of a France that is doing well? Is a France that doesn’t care about Christine Boutin not a happy France? This is what I personally believe.

This top

If this top had been a hit, everyone would have started adoring me, the media would have hounded me to answer their questions, fans would have tracked my address and broken into my house, and one of them would have even killed me of love… really lazy.

On the other hand, I regret the failure of the bouncy ball as a means of transport in the cities.
