There are some events and pastimes in life that everyone can't get enough of, and I wish they would just go away.

For the life of me I sometimes cannot understand the things that make people satisfied.

I swear there are people who like newborns, could just stare at sparkly objects.

And for them that could be a full day.

We have to agree that there are some activities that have outlasted their prime.

Let's investigate...

RedditorWinstonChurchillinwanted to hear all the popular things that need to come to end soon, but too many people won't let them die. They asked:

"What do others enjoy that you find painfully boring?"

Sports. All sports. Not my tea. And after all the controversies and injuries, haven't we seen enough?

Going Places

Happy Jennifer Coolidge GIF by HBOGiphy

"Going on vacation and not exploring the area. So many people I know just want to sit at the beach or pool or just shop all the time. If I'm going somewhere new, or even slightly familiar, I'm going to places I can't at home."

Who Cares?

"Anything that has to do with celebrities outside of what projects they are currently working on. Oh god, my friend's wife is the worst. We were watching the Superbowl and she's more excited about which players wife is sitting next to who than we are about the game."

"The whole damn game she's rambling on about whatever the f**k it was the girlfriend or wives or kids of the players were up to over the last year. And it isn't just football, its always about what famous person's kids went to the school her dad's friend teaches at or what local restaurant her friend saw some famous person's girlfriend's brother at. WHO THE F**K CARES!?"

I've Stopped Listening

"Talking about someone I will never meet or get to know well. When the story doesn't even involve the speaker or anyone I know, I most likely will not be able to remember any of the information. I'm just so absolutely not interested in strangers."

Agonist28

"Yes! Especially the minute they start going 'so and so talked to such and such who met him…' You bet by the time they mention the third person, I’ve tuned out."

Delta_Eridani

Same Game

"Sport games like FiFa."

Dark_Angel45

"Same crap different year at its best. yeah how about you guys hype it up for 2 months before the game launches and preorder it then cry how bad the game is giving us more publicity and also pay 10 bucks if you wanna play this new mode."

salt_pizza9491

"I basically play sports games only when there's company around. For me they are for casual playing with the group of friends on the couch. They are not bad (ok few last EA games are like shi*) but i cant play them alone. Thats whats story games are for."

Boring!

Adam Sandler Golf GIFGiphy

"Watching golf."

erichmich

"Like watching paint dry. Ha."

Icy_Opening_8078

HOW did golf ever become a thing? I'm asleep at mini golf, never mind professional.

Nemo Tales

justin moore fish GIFGiphy

"Fishing."

mtwstr

"I only go fishing if I’m gonna be eating it for dinner."

CrispyMilk69

I like Fiction

"Reality tv, especially talent shows. You have the out-of-touch, famous judges trying to look relative and at least one that overdoes the whole angry person schtick, the less talented contestants that try to use tear jerk background stories (with the obligatory sad background music) to win over viewers and some occurrence later on that is supposed to make us feel all uplifted. And for some reason, they all seem to be hosted by presenters with the most punchable faces imaginable."

BudovicLagman

Buy a house!

"Weddings."

Tasty-Bee-8339

"God yes. I am a 50 year old happily married middle class woman and I hate weddings. Boring! What a waste of money. Have a small service of your choice and then a party. And all of the stupid trends with favors and photo booths and the crappy DJs (I live in Oklahoma — they’re all crappy). Feh. Spend it on the honeymoon! Buy a house!"

Mouse-Direct

All of it!!

"Everything pretty much. I've got ADHD. Even most video games are boring to me. The only thing I love is learning new stuff. But sadly, not in the depth. The result is that I know A LOT, but I don't know anything that could be used as a tool to make money, sadly. For example i know basic orbital mechanics, and at the same time how cyber criminals work."

"Also i know history, mathematics, basic chemistry, biomechanics of human body, dietary stuff. A bit of programming and CS. Psychology. Know quite a bit about politics, geography etc. I just wish i could concentrate more on one thing, so I can actually monetize my talents."

Chat it Up

Mean Girls Gossip GIF by Paramount MoviesGiphy

"Small talk, Gossip, or constant social interaction."

REDDIT

"To me there is a huge difference between small talk and social interaction. Social interaction between me and a friend is almost never small talk. And I freaking hate small talk, though I like to socialize with friends."

Comfortable_Novel_89

Immaturity

"Fart jokes... even from middle school, the whole class will crack up if someone does the armpit fart thing, never made me laugh... and its not like I'm too uptight or sophisticated or anything, I'll laugh and have laughed for way more childish and immature jokes, guess I'm just immune to them particularly."

Not_Titan_Ananth

Silence is Golden

"Workplace small talk. 'Hey, it's Wednesday.' 'Yep, two more days until Friday.' 'Haha, yeah. I have coffee.' 'Me too.' So relieved I work from home now and don't have to listen to that inane prattle anymore."

HawaiianShirtsOR

"Same. I find it very hard to strike up a conversation but I can keep one going as long as everyone has something to talk about. I love talking to new people but I'm awful at starting up the chat."

Northerleyfire

We're Sort of Listening...

"Podcasts. So often it's just people chatting who have an opinion. Yes, the creators read something about the topic they want to talk about, but it often is dumbed down/an interpretation by them. And it often becomes just a stream of thoughts. I'd much rather hear a good audiobook (and I do that a lot). And yes I realise there are podcasts that are well structured and sourced, but then they are so close to an audiobook again, that I don't really see the purpose of a podcast."

Heart Day

Valentines Day Love GIF by CBCGiphy

"Valentine’s Day."

welshegg

"I only like the chocolates. Anything els about it is boring. You can do whatever you do that day every day."

Luuk__5736

Out of Attendance

"Church services. Specifically, catholic mass. My family LOVES attending mass, not just on Sundays, but on obscure high holy days, on weekdays, on vacation weekdays - I find mass incredibly dull, snd boring, snd slightly gross ( coughing lady giving out communion, having to shake hands with people who just sneezed or were scratching, ewww)."

Appropriate-Access88

LOL - NOT!

"Sitcoms."

Tremor_Sense

"There was a sitcom that looked really funny to me. Watched half of the first episode with laugh tracks. And it just made me feel nothing over jokes I would normally be laughing my ass off at. They ruin the show I don’t get why they used to be so common."

Kye_ThePie

Let's Play Card

"Chess. I'm an avid board flipper with my son. I make 6 moves, then flip the board and pieces in the air, and say 'Jesus Sam! You win! I can't f**king stand it anymore!'"

Hebshesh

"I started playing speed chess when I got bored of regular. You have 10 seconds to make a move or its the other person's turn. <My own version.>"

willb003

Spewing

"Tik Tok."

Spiffynitsua

"I hate Tik Tok with a passion. My wife recently discovered it, and is hooked. I don't understand the fascination with watching random people spewing their bulls**t. I wonder if our marriage will prevail."

Toilet Waters

Dance Dancing GIF by Carnival Cruise LineGiphy

"Cruises."

macaronsforeveryone

"Lol... went to one 2 years ago that left from Miami to the Bahamas, it was a floating toilet with golden corral food, I didn't really enjoy much really except for being in Nassau for like 6 hours."

manlyheman

So Dumb...

"Watching The Bachelor or Bachelorette. I am always dumber after attempting to watch those shows."

Thick_Panties_Tatas

"Ha! 100% agree! But, I have a lovely wife, who is intelligent, who watches this at times. We share the tv and watch things together. I watch football and sports. She watches HGTV and this stuff. It’s a give and take to a lovely marriage."

Thick_Panties_Tatas

Sorry, but gossip will never get old. I love it. I live for it. Tell me more...

When looking at a resume, it's easy to understand how prospective employers will assume someone is very intelligent based on their education and past experience.

But one shouldn't only assume someone's intelligence based on what they read.

More often than not, one can tell rather quickly that someone possesses above-average intelligence, based on how they speak, how they behave, or other telling details.

With each passing year of a marriage, couples will often discover that while they don't love each other any less than they once did, that spark their relationship used to carry has faded.

This will often lead these couples to look for ways to spice things up a bit.

Among the more popular experiments is inviting a third member to their bedroom.

Enticing as this prospect is, however, it's also easy to be intimidated by the reality of it, or even the mere suggestion of it.

People Share Their Best 'You Either Die The Hero Or Live Long Enough To Become The Villain' Experiences

"You either die the hero or live long enough to become the villain."

Though not necessarily a universal truth, all of us have witnessed unfortunate moments in our lives where we've seen this saying become a reality.

Be it seeing our favorite public figures take a serious fall from grace, someone we know and admire eventually disappointing us in a devastating manner, or even seeing ourselves turn into someone we promised we'd never become.

People Describe The Darkest Thing They've Ever Done That They Don't Regret
Photo by Ashley Jurius on Unsplash

Sometimes we do things that have to be done.

And some of those things live in life's gray area of right and wrong.

What comes as a surprise to some is when we don't care if we're wrong.

We may still technically be in the right.

But morally and ethically, there may be some issues.

But still, many people don't care.
