Recently, an Askreddit thread explored the following question: What's considered trashy if you're poor, but classy if you're rich? The answers are both hilarious, and sadly revealing.

1. Getting trashed in a cabin in the middle of nowhere. The only difference is the price of the alcohol. And whether or not the alcohol was distilled in the general vicinity of the cabin.

2. Having someone drive you around. Sure, I'm in the back alone and it's a limousine. But you add one stranger and suddenly it's the city bus and I have to put my pants back on.

3. If you are weird and rich people call you eccentric, but if you are weird and poor people call you crazy.

4. Day Drinking. A minimum wage employee can't enjoy a cold beer atlunch. Meanwhile the boss gets to have mimosas during a business brunch,beer at business lunch, and wine for business 'we went home early'.

5. Having a lot of kids. Bonus points for having one named Junior.

6. Inbreeding. Famously done by rednecks and royalty.

7. Having a dinner table made out of a repurposed door. It's arty and classy only if the reason you're doing it isn't financial.

8. Gambling.

9. Having animal skins and parts in your house. It's only classy to keep stuffed dead animals if you also have a lot of money.

10. Revealing dresses. Like what you would see on the red carpet vs. whatyou see at the red light district. Seems like the only differencesometimes is the setting.

11. Florida.

12. Eating snails. Coolif you're doing it in a fancy French restaurant, not so cool if you'rescrounging random slugs from the pavement and popping them in yourmouth.

13. Living off your parents wealth.

14. Multiple cars on your property. A garage full of sports cars is cool, but a front yard crammed with rusting junkers isn't quite the same.

15. And last but not least, Getting financial handouts from the government.

Y'all know that one Hannah Montana song? “Everybody makes mistakes! Everybody has those days!" That's the song I sing to myself every time I accidentally burn myself while making ramen. It comforts me to know, however, that there are a lot of worse mistakes out there than some spilled ramen. Who knew?

When I was younger, it seemed every adult believed that you couldn't swim for several hours after eating. Why did they all believe this? I fought them on this all the time, by the way. I shouldn't have had to, just because I'd eaten some barbecue during a pool party. Guess what, though? That belief is unfounded.

As much as we're not supposed to feel satisfaction upon observing the struggles of other people, it can be hard to resist a silent, internal fist pump when some blunder occurs immediately after we tried to help the person prevent it.

One of the most upsetting aspects of the Covid-19 pandemic––which is saying a lot, frankly––is the number of people who have been so affected by misinformation and disinformation. You know the ones to which I refer: These are the people who are convinced the virus is a hoax despite the lives it's claimed and the devastation it has wrought on society at large. Disinformation kills––there are stories of people who remained convinced that Covid-19 is a hoax even while intubated in the ICU, even up to their last breath.

After Redditor asked the online community, "Doctors of Reddit, what happened when you diagnosed a Covid-19 denier with Covid-19?" doctors and other medical professionals shared these rather unsettling stories.
