MCDONALD'S JAPAN

Curse the whims of fate which seemed to offer us our deepest desire, only to have it torn away! On August 23, big news began swirling around the internet, bringing excitement wherever it went: McDonald's was soon to offer a 48-piece chicken nugget tub that would be guaranteed to satisfy any customer. Unfortunately, however, things were not as they seemed.


The rumors claimed that the massive tub was only going to be available in Japan's Niigata Prefecture as a promotion for pop-group NGT48. People got very excited on Twitter (even those who had no plans of visiting Japan any time soon):





McNugget fans from overseas had trouble containing their envy.




It turns out, however, that this promotion ran in 2015 and people online were simply resurfacing old coverage of the same event. The news was cruel and hard to handle.




Naturally, the bad news didn't spread nearly as quickly as the exciting rumor. Most people, upon discovering the truth, gave up on the internet for a long stretch of time so they could find some peace and center themselves.

But just remember: even if they don't come in a single convenient tub, you can always get 48 McNuggets from McDonalds.





There's nothing quite like a McNugget...





All hail the McNuggets! Hopefully McDonald's will hear our plea and release the 48-piece bucket someday.

You're hungry one night, so you order food. You select your items, go to place your order, and see that the order has an extra $15 in fees tacked on to it, and that's not even including tip!

Believe it or not, there was a time before delivery services. You can very easily just call the restaurant you want and place the order directly. It's pretty easy–and you and the restaurant get to avoid the middle man.

But delivery services have become so ubiquitous over the years that many of us just put up with it. They're legitimate services but honestly, when you see the final price tag, how could you not feel like you've been totally scammed?

"What is a legitimate product / service that still feels like a scam?"

When you really think about it, childhood is actually just rife with trauma.

The things we see as children, are things we are never going to escape. And nobody fully prepares you for it.

Every child born should be assigned a therapist along with a pediatrician.

Life is going to bombard us with memories we'll never unsee, because the actions of humans are random and as a child we're forced to watch.

The mark is left. So let's hear about some trauma.

Redditor Banjoman653 wanted to hear from everybody willing to share some childhood tales, by asking:

"What’s a really f**ked up thing you’ve witnessed as a kid but didn’t realise it was until you were older?"
