Whether it was punching trees to try and impress a crush, or maybe Naruto running through the halls; it'd seem the harder people tried to be cool, the further away they fell from being just that.

Lawyers' Best Gotcha Moments

Movie Cliches People Never Really See

If only life were like the movies, but most of the time, no such luck. Yes, it'd be nice to cruise carelessly down freeways with no traffic in sight, in the middle of rush hour. Yes, it'd be beautiful to have a flowing conversation between a group of people, where nobody is talking over each other. For now, we get to experience those pleasant moments on movies. If we're lucky, we see some of it carry over into our actual lives.

Gaping Plot Holes In Movies People Can't Get Over

When the flow of logic in a film is disrupted in such a way that it takes the viewer of the film out of the experience, and into a mental roadblock, it's a bummer. Some plot holes are just too big for people to look past, and ultimately be able to enjoy the film. Consistency can go a long way in immersing the audience in the storyline, as it was meant to be experienced. Another plot hole covered recently, was that plot hole we can often see in zombie apocalypse movies/shows. Tumblr did it justice.

The world is a strange place, and sometimes folks with the craziest stories are actually telling the truth.

Jobs So Bad That People Quit On The First Day

Someone on AskReddit asked for people to share their experiences with working jobs that were so bad, that they quit on the first day. Sometimes, one ends up working a job that they feel is so polluted by negativity and ridiculously unnecessary BS, that they ultimately decide to remove themselves from the environment.

Most Unnerving Sights That Sailors Witnessed At Sea

Sailors see some haunting sights while out at sea. There's a whole lot of unexplored space out in those oceans, and mysterious creatures that look like they swam right out of a fever dream can present themselves at spontaneous times, to sailors. The thought of being out in the middle of nowhere on a big body of pitch black water, and suddenly seeing some unexplainable phenomenon that looks like a monster from the underworld itself, is enough to send chills down the spine. Nope. I'm good.
