People tend to think of Barbie as a role model.

She's both a medical doctor and an astronaut, after all! Of course, so is Mae Jemison.

But just because Barbie is among the most accomplished dolls in the world doesn't mean she doesn't have some skeletons in her closet.


The hashtag #BarbiesDarkSecrets has been circulating around Twitter, with users sharing the bits of Barbie history the doll never wanted you to know.



Barbie's secrets range from innocent to criminal...



Who is Barbie really behind the facade of her public image?



There's a lot of things you never realized while playing with Barbies as a kid.


Barbie is wanted in multiple states.



In a past life, Barbie was one of the Earth's most terrifying villains.


And of course, she knows how to party.


Barbie has clearly done a few things she regrets...

...but some sins are truly unforgivable.

Never be too sure you know your dolls!

They had their own lives before they met you, after all.

Sometimes I think back to a teacher I had when I was a kid who demanded to know whether any of us were "raised in a barn" in response to crappy behavior. Namely littering. She hated littering. Can you blame her? It's a horrible habit and some people do it with no sense of shame. She dedicated much of her time to telling students to pick up after themselves and dispose of things properly. For that, I'm thankful.

But why didn't anyone else get the memo? The trash I see on the streets is obscene.

People had lots of thoughts to share after Redditor SneakyStriedker876 asked the online community,

"What seemingly uncivilized thing is commonplace in society?"

I love presents. I try to hide my enthusiasm, and I do my best to appease the greater public by saying "it's the thought that counts." But that is a WHOLE lie. I don't just love gifts, I love great gifts. And if you go rogue from my lists, please keep a receipt. It's just plain rude to divert from what the recipient has requested.

This thought process has emerged from experience. I have received some trash presents over the years and now I'm too old to pretend you just went crazy while shopping. Like... "do you even know me?!"

Redditor u/sulemannkhann wanted to hear all about the presents some of us have received that we prayed, came with a receipt, by asking:

What's the worst birthday gift you ever got?

I'm still on the fence about this whole extraterrestrial situation. I need more proof. Now I'm not naive enough to think that in this vast, endless universe only the human race exists. I just need proof, tangible, solid, didn't see it from my trailer through beer goggles proof.

I also need proof about the afterlife, another out there topic. Truth be told, I've never been that into this whole conversation. I've got enough daily problems on this planet, let alone worrying about making Will Smith's biggest hits into documentaries and not just popcorn/comedy space farce.

But let's compare thoughts...

Redditor u/ValencikHannibal197 wanted to discuss life beyond this planet, what do we really think? They asked:

What's the best theory on UFOs or aliens you've ever heard??
