One In A Million Life Moments For Lucky People

Someone on AskReddit asked for people to share those miraculous moments they experienced that defied the odds. We live in the middle of chaos, and it's easy to will ourselves into believing that a life of routine is shielded from moments of complete unpredictability that simply defy rhyme and reason. These people lived down their miraculous moments, and some of them sound like they got just the kinds of second chances they needed. Got to be careful out there!

Advice From Parents That Was Total BS

Someone on AskReddit asked for people to describe those tidbits of advice that they received from parents that ended up being total BS. While the advice from some of these parents might have been crafted with good (but deceptive...) intentions, the kids definitely went on to grow up into adults that saw it for what it was. Just a load of BS!

People's Experiences With Doomsday Prepper Parents

People are sharing their experiences with growing up with doomsday prepper parents, or people they've crossed paths with that were just convinced that the apocalypse was looming heavy around the corner. Can't imagine how that could affect a child's outlook on life, if they're growing up around stockpiles of food and other life essentials like the world was about to cave in on itself at any moment. Definitely a stressful environment.

You'd think parents would have better judgement, but sometimes people get stuck with incredibly silly names. There are some parents out there who either didn't give a name enough thought, or tried to get too clever with it. Man it would really suck to be named after a transformer.
