Things that don't exist

Things that don't exist is a website that maintains a rapidly growing list of things that, well... don't exist. The site is populated by reader contributions and allows for comments to be left by others to agree with or dispute a claim. Ratings can also be applied to each contribution.

The idea for this site originated from a comic and later a movie. And even though it has only been actively seeking contributions for less close to a month, the list already has almost 12,000 entries. They range from the nonsensical and completely improbable to general observations. Hell, there's even a song.

Things I've found on the list that actually do exist:


The sound of one hand clapping

Chocolate-covered bacon - This is something you could probably get at any waffle house.

Here are some interesting, non-existing things I found:

the last digit of pi

a free lunch - heavily debated

An air freshener that smells like marker pens, only non toxic. - A million dollar idea waiting to happen.

October 5-14, 1582 - This was true only in Catholic countries. In Britain, September 3rd-13th 1752 never existed. (via the wiki)

Tyler Durden - I am Jack's medulla oblongata.

Of course I had to add my two cents:

exact number of licks it takes to get to the center of a Tootsie pop

a lawn that doesn't need mowing

answer to the operation of dividing by zero

a self-emptying trash can

the mauve screen of death
