Tumblr Thread Says Movies Fuel Unrealistic Physical Standards

This Tumblr thread called out the impacts of movies in terms of fueling unrealistic physical standards, when it comes to fitness. It addresses how bodybuilding culture can manifest in convincing people that they should look a certain way (or that it'd be nice to), when in fact those very images are of folks that are sometimes severely dehydrated.

Doctors' Best "Asking For A Friend" Stories

Someone on AskReddit asked for doctors to share their best stories of people coming in, and seeking them out to ask for professional medical advice for their "friends." Folks have a funny blindness they apply toward not knowing how obvious it is that they're asking advice for themselves, from doctors. At least the doctors seem to take it in stride, and exercise an understanding of the process.

Quarantine Moment: People Vent About Wanting Haircuts

Due to the Coronavirus barbershops and salons across the globe are shutting down. Makes sense. With that development, people are coming to the terms with the inevitable nature of their hair, and that it will grow, grow, and grow some more.

Medical Professionals Share the Dumbest Things They've Had to Explain To People

Doctors, Nurses, certified nursing assistants, pharmacists, and anyone even  tangentially related to medicine constantly have to talk to people who have no basic understanding of how their own body works. Patients will do stupid things, lie, and even deny the most WTF stuff. It's kind of sad to think about where we'd be without medical expertise, and it's flabbergasting to see what people think is healthy behavior.

Medical professionals share stories of times they had to explain basic medical knowledge to stupid people.
