People's Biggest Wedding Day Regrets

Someone on AskReddit got a thread going about people's most painful wedding day regrets. It really sucks that so much of the wisdom we can gain in this life comes directly from the hard and unforgiving lessons that regretful experiences teach us. Sometimes we've just got to do certain things at certain occasions to realize we'll definitely never be doing them again. Hopefully none of these regrets ring any bells.

Best Compliments Dudes Received From Girls

Funniest Things People Caught Themselves Mindlessly Doing

Most of us have caught ourselves in the middle of a completely nonsensical act where we basically just wake up, and realize we have no idea what we're doing. It's as if some other completely aloof force possesses the body for a hot minute, and makes it do all kinds of dumb stuff. As long as you can maintain a sense of humility, and the mindless action didn't put you in harms way, it's actually a great chance to laugh at yourself.

Annoyingly Unrealistic Movie Logic Moments

Yeah, if only life were actually like the movies sometimes. But alas, instead, this is the real world baby. People have things like morning breath, gifts can be impossibly hard to wrap, or the outlandish terminology that's dispensed when it comes to describing the shady underworld of hacking. Movies certainly take their liberties when it comes to "portraying" the real world. Oh well, that can make for a great part of the escape from reality.

Managing to rap off an insult that doesn't rely on a gross display of vulgarity is its own kind of accomplishment.

Times People Questioned Their Own Intelligence

Someone on AskReddit got a thread going about the most impressively dumb things people did that inspired them to question their own intelligence. Sometimes you lead a life where you worked 10 years in a kitchen, and still end up trying to microwave a saucepan. Or maybe you find yourself mindlessly blaring your car horn at the guy who you already knew was deaf, but somehow forgot because your brain decided to take a catnap. We've all been there caught up in the middle of an impressively mindless moment, at some point in our lives.

Sometimes, you just get lucky. It's like the universe intervenes on your behalf, and saves you from all kinds of untold suffering.

Craziest Butterfly Effects From People's Small Decisions

It's truly crazy just how much of an impact one small decision can end up having in the grand scheme of things. Or maybe what we merely conceptualize as being a "small decision" on the surface level, is nothing of the sort. The universe is weird, and likes to keep us on our toes. Maybe that's the inherently fun part about living -- is not knowing what's coming around the corner, and certainly not knowing what a minor move will go on to cause.

Horrible Managers That Employees Needed To Quit

The old saying about how people don't quit terrible jobs, they quit terrible managers, is certainly proven true in this AskReddit thread about some of the world's absolute worst bosses.

People's Most Embarrassing Office Christmas Parties

Office Christmas parties have a tendency to spiral out of control quickly. It could be all the aggressive enthusiasm and nerves that are already engrained into the holiday season, or people just letting themselves go a bit too much in honor the season. But alas, sometimes people manage to keep it together and actually have a genuinely, reasonably mannered good time. It's rare, but it can happen.

Most Infuriating Myths About Men

Someone on AskReddit got a thread going about the most frustrating myths about men. Whether it's assuming that the only thing men want 24/7 is just to fornicate, or that men can't express their emotions in a heartfelt, sensitive way as well -- men go through their own battles. Maybe some of these will hit close to home.

Worst Possible Meals People Would Serve Gordon Ramsay

Someone on AskReddit got a wild thread going about the meals that people would serve Gordon Ramsay to torture him to no end.
