I failed because …

Did a quick Google search on the reasons people give for failure and let my researcher app gather them up. The result is really interesting, when you read through it you see so much into the human psyche and the way that people think, then you come across the absurd now and then that makes you think again.

As probably one of the most useless posts I have ever made – here they are, have a read. Some are repeated in a sense and they all appear out of context which helps a great deal because it makes you wonder what on earth they were doing and some are just classic…

What do you think, is this list comprehensive? Are there any missing that you can think of or have ever used?
