Donate a kidney.

Getting married. I don’t regret getting married, but if my wife were to pass away or our marriage otherwise ended, I doubt I would go through the dating and getting to know them and getting married and such again. I’m too old for that, and I’m not even that old.

Farted in a board meeting.

Leaned over to get a pen out of my purse on the floor. Completely unexpected BRRRRRAAAAAPPPPP

Shocked silence from a group of uptight executives.

Haha can’t beat a good fart story. Did it smell?

I don’t remember. I was so paralyzed with embarrassment afterward.

Pepper spray, did it once on a dare. I can say with 100% conviction that it works exactly as intended.

I came home hammered one night in my early twenties and decided to cook some ramen noodles. Before I set down to eat the bowl I put some Daves insanity sauce on the noodles. I had to piss real bad, so I went and did my business, forgetting to wash my hands off beforehand. I wish I would’ve because I had gotten some of the hot sauce on my fingers when I opened the hot sauce bottle. A shower didn’t help. Hell I poured milk on my junk in a last ditch effort to ease this horrible pain. One of the dumbest things I’ve done.

Random Fan Theories – AskReddit

What fan theory do you 100% accept as true? from r/AskReddit

JesusDiedForBaron
Kermit caused 9/11, not really much of a fan theory though since it’s unintentionally canon

Edit: Realized this should be explained, in the 2002 TV film “It’s a Very Merry Muppet Christmas Movie”, there’s a part where an angel shows Kermit an alternate reality where he was never born. For whatever reason, the editors didn’t really think about it, and continued to use footage with the twin towers still standing for this scene, however they aren’t there in his original universe. Therefore, something that Kermit did in his life, did in fact cause 9/11 in Muppet lore.

Scooby Doo is a show about draft dodgers during the Vietnam War

The Last Airbender is not, as many have suspected, meant to be a big screen version of the TV show of the same name. It is, in fact, a subtle but clear adaptation of the show’s episode “the Ember Island Players,” in which a poorly informed in-universe theater troupe recap the events of the series in an inaccurate and comedic style.

This was a Reddit post awhile ago actually but the theory was : In Empire Strikes Back, when Luke tells R2 to stay in the ship at various times, he doesn’t stay put, because the last person to tell him that was Anakin and he never came back

James Bond’s primary purpose is to be a distraction to keep attention off the spies who actually spy. Villains and other spies know him, he rarely takes an alias, he makes his presence known early on and keeps messing up operations for the villains, but other spies have already infiltrated their ranks and work while Bond does as much visible damage as possible to keep the others safe.

Peter Pan kills any lost boy that grows into adulthood. Captain Hook and his pirates are all lost boys that have escaped and aim to stop him

Some of my favorites:

/r/UnresolvedMysteries – One of my favorite subs about mysterious cases that have yet to be solved

/r/AMADisasters – A sort of museum for AMAs that have gone totally wrong

/r/AteThePasta – When people fall for copypasta in the wild.

/r/DepthHub – A bit like /r/bestof for for really in-depth discussions.

/r/redditwritesseinfeld – A fun little sub where people write scenes from Seinfeld based on prompts

/r/TheGrittyPast – a great little subreddit about accounts from history not often talked about because of their tragic and often violent nature.

/r/HistoryAnecdotes – Pretty much speaks for itself, mostly content from the creator of the sub who also does TGP, but others contribute too

/r/FanTheories – A great sub full of some pretty great theories about movies, shows, and books

What is the strangest mystery that is still unsolved? – AskReddit

What is the strangest mystery that is still unsolved? from r/AskReddit

An unknown group of people broke into an FBI building, and no one has found out who they are. But the best part of the story is, they did it by leaving a sticky note that said “Do not lock the door tonight” and it worked.

Imagine being the guy who left it unlocked

I think that would be everyone that day…

Last one out was the most rotten egg, though.

ohshawty
This is my favorite weird and barely known one:

Back in 2013 an unknown group assaulted a power substation in California. By all appearances it was pretty sophisticated: scouted firing positions, all casings wiped of prints, they targeted transformers so they’d take time to overheat before triggering any alarms, also knew exactly when the police would arrive.

No suspect or motive to this day, they also cut some fiber optic cables in a vault nearby. Conspiracy types think it was a dry run by Russia or possibly China to see how effective an attack like that might be.

What kind of Transformers, Autobots or Decepticons?

Since the mystery was never solved, I’d say it’s the perfect Optimus Crime.

Acts of Kindness, examples


What’s a small act of kindness you were once shown, that you’ll never forget? from AskReddit

I missed my train to go home for Christmas from uni due to a crash near the station. I was completely broke and knew I wouldn’t be able to afford another ticket. Life just got on top of me knowing I’d have to spend Christmas alone in my shitty student house and not being about to see my grandad who was in rapidly declining health. I was bawling my eyes out on the platfrom when a janitor(?) appeared out of a hidden stock room under a stair well and brought me some tissues.

He found out why I was so upset and said leave it to me. Took me to the customer service desk and got them to reissue me a ticket for the next train home. I was so thankful I started bawling again and he went on his way. Then just before I was about to get my train he found me on the platform and gave me some snacks and a can of coke and its just the nicest thing anyones ever done for it.

I broke my foot and was trying to limp my way across campus with crutches in the pouring rain. Someone ran over with their umbrella and walked across campus with me so I wouldn’t get rained on.

I was in NYC taking a lunch break at a job I absolutely hated. I was sitting eating alone at a McD’s and after about 15 minutes this man in his 40’s or 50’s (I’m a 28 yr old male at the time) goes up to me and says something like “Hey man, you look really sad. Things will get better.” and just shook my hand. Takes a lot for one adult man to offer that up to another strange man. Really cheered me up.

After my Dad passed away my depression kicked into over drive. I went to the Doctor and got a prescription for anti depressants. While I was picking up my prescription I started crying. When I apologized to the pharmacist for crying like a child the pharmacist said, ” You don’t have to apologize. You recognize you have a problem and you are trying to fix it. That is a brave thing.” It changed my perspective on treating my mental illness.

At work I was complaining about heartburn once. I was still pretty new to the job. Didnt really have any work friends. Felt like an outsider. My life outside of work was pretty shit as well.

The bartender on shift overheard me and ran to a nearby coffee shop to get me a chocolate milk. It definitely made the heartburn go away but it was such a needlessly kind act. I dont think ill ever forget it. 2 years later we’re still friends and she is definitely one of the kindest people I’ve ever met.
