People Explain Which Aspects Of Everyday Life Only Exist To F*** With Us

I can't count how many times I've come across amount where nothing makes sense and it feels like it's by design. Like, politics... WHO THOUGHT THAT WAS A GOOD IDEA?!! There are pratfalls ready to take us all down at every turn and they are built into the everyday moments of life. Very cheeky God. Well played.

Redditor u/NiceCasualRedditGuy wanted to compare notes about what part of the ordinary we all feel is playing tricks on everyone by asking...

Why do snakes exist? Seriously, or alligators. Someone explain it truthfully. Because what science tells us, I believe is a farce. There had to better ways to catch and take down rodents and... humans. Who thought creepy beasts that could take you out with poison or a hundred teeth sounded like fun?

Mcafee antivirus.


Man that thing is a virus. makes a new computer feel like a 7 year old computer.


be selfish...

The "Share" button on porn sites.


LOL!!! Has anyone ever pressed one besides that government guy a few years back? Can't remember his name. Oh and asking for a friend.


Hang Up

Robocalls about your car's extended warranty.


I started messing with the callers. Acting like I'm hard of hearing, speaking broken English, getting confused and having things repeated are great time wasters. Then they take me off the list because I'm an a-hole they don't want to deal with.

Mosquitos. Wasn't even that long ago that a study proved that you could wipe them all out and it would not actually negatively impact ecosystems as much as previously thought and there is now a real effort to exterminate every last one of the bloodsucking fools.


Not the X

The ads that have the X inside the ad, so that when you click to close it, it takes you to the linked site.


Honestly wtf do they think will happen "I wasn't going to download your crappy mobile game with an ad that has nothing to do with gameplay but wow you tricked me into going to your website, I think I will give it a try."


See there? Now that is what I'm saying. How do any of those things add to the greater experience of life? At least in a positive way. It all seems unnecessary unless it's about driving people crazy. Let's see what else is keeping us up at night.

lacking wisdom...

I know they weren't meant to and once had a reason to exist, but by now: Wisdom teeth.


I don't have a single wisdom tooth. My dentist said he could count on one hand how many times he came across that.

Edit: This is now my top comment. I tried replying to everyone but I just couldn't do it. I'm sorry for every one that does have complications with their wisdom teeth.

There are some real horror stories in these comments. /u/Satures was completely right saying that they do mess with us now. I have to point out /u/anarrogantbastard because this person has 8 wisdom teeth and room for all of them. Can you believe that?! There was an unfortnate soul how had 4 sets (yes 4 sets) of wisdom teeth. And finally thank you /u/dcp0002 for the award.


Stay Awake

Bedbugs. They have no ecological benefit; and target only humans, almost exclusively just when the human hosts are sleeping, armed with natural anticoagulants and painkillers for enhanced, stealthy blood-sucking. Did I mention that bedbugs normally strike only in darkness, they're nearly invisible when young, they've mastered the art of hiding, they're immune to common insecticides, and they'll wait months (more than a year in some cases) without any nourishment while patiently waiting for feeding opportunities? Doomguy has never faced an enemy with such exceptional clandestine tactics.


Shrimp Instead...

Clamshell packaging. Forget that crap.


It's doubly annoying when the item that you just bought is a pair of scissors.

Why would you package something in such a way that needs the actual same item to open it?





Seriously. It's not something foreign, like an animal or poorly made printers. It's the own body's system completely loosing control of cell management. Our tech and advancements in science has only touched what a cure might look like. Cancer is the only answer here.

RIP Mama.


Butt Issues

Single ply toilet paper.


Might as well wipe your butt with your bare hand, TBH.


And why are there so many buttons on cars and planes that do nothing? If there is a button that has no use, lose it, it's only a distraction. And while driving and FLYING... no one should never be distracted. I forgot about those two. Food for thought.

People Who've Survived Being Shot Explain What It Really Feels Like

It's another ordinary day in America.

So of course that means we've already had a mass shooting or two before brunch.

And aside from the mass shootings, the number of single gunshot wounds or deaths is too high to count.

So let's discuss the aftermath.

Let's hear from the people who have faced the barrel of a loaded gun, or were just a casualty going about their day.

What happens after the bullet lands?


Redditor notaninterestingacc wanted to hear from the people who have lived the nightmare. They asked:

"Gunshot survivors of Reddit - What does it feel like to get shot?"

It's never attractive to gloat.

Nor does superiority ever come off as a particularly attractive attribute.

But, consciously or not, some people speak or behave in a way that immediately suggests that they think they deserve to be treated differently, i.e better than others.

Or that they believe they simply are better than other people.

A recent Redditor was curious what sort of behavior struck other people as elitist or arrogant behavior by asking:

"What screams "I am entitled"?"

There's something about the woods that creeps me out. Listen here, people: I'm a city guy. The idea of getting lost out there freaks me out. No thank you. I wasn't made for that. The rest of you who like to go camping and stuff? You do you. I'll stick with my running water.

But maybe I've seen too many horror movies. After all, if I saw some creepy stuff in the woods I'd definitely run in the other direction. And so would you, right? Right?

People shared their best stories with us after Redditor shantics asked the online community,

"What have you seen in the woods that you can’t explain?"

We're all not geniuses.

Everybody has varying degrees of knowledge and brain power.

And that is ok.

Though some of us are really lacking in any sense and every once and awhile people like to sugarcoat that fact when they call us out.

"Bless your heart."

That's a big one in the South. Means... "I like you, but Lord are you missing marbles."
