Just imagine if they had two monster smoke rings collide. Like actually what would happen? Maybe nothing at all. That being said, this massive contraption would be way too much fun to play around with.

Craziest Things Deep Sleepers Slept Through

Someone on AskReddit got a thread going about the craziest things that people have slept through. Many of us have known (or are that person ourselves) someone who has an uncanny knack for being able to drift off to the dreamland, and remain there, through moments of absolute chaos. Could be sleeping through multiple fire alarms, or maybe something like remaining unstirred when a literal lightning bolt strikes the airplane.

Times People Unexpectedly Struck Gold

Sometimes, you're down on your luck and the universe seems to throw you a bone. You could be stepping out to take the trash out, preoccupied by one of a million stressful thoughts, and then suddenly, you spot a fresh $100 hanging out on the sidewalk. Or maybe you're just going to fill up the car with gas and after spontaneously deciding to buy a lotto ticket, you're up a few grand. These stories of folks striking gold when they were just "hunting for copper" are a boost of secondhand positive feels at the very least.

Twitter Thread: Our Vision Systems Are Lying

Wow, that's certainly enough trippy for the day. This fun Twitter thread from @Foone shines light on some bizarre things that our eyes are (or aren't) doing. It is troubling to think about a hostile alien race showing up one day that exploits our eyes' saccades, and manages to wipe us out because we can never see them, and all along our eyes have just been taking their best guess at what's around us. Maybe they're already here. Maybe that's why we can't see them. What an eye-opening thread.

Non-Americans Biggest Culture Shocks When Visiting America

Someone on AskReddit got a thread going about non-Americans biggest culture shocks upon visiting America. It can be easy to forget how strange of a place America is, when you're living inside the bubble of chaos. A perspective from the outside looking in picks up on strange and normalized things like the sheer scale of food portions/drink sizes, or the over-sensationalized news, or those condescending commercials.
