Believe it or not, we all have interesting stories to tell. There's always something to share with everyone. Why, just take a stroll down the lane of your family history sometime. Chances are you'll find something worth telling at parties. If not, then that story about how a horse fell on you once and you broke absolutely zero bones should do.

After Redditor SuicideSBWolfe asked the online community, "What's a fact about you that sounds completely unbelievable?" people shared their tidbits.


"My father..."

My father was a communist who tried starting a communist revolution multiple times throughout his 20s and 30s, while my mother was an anti-communist refugee from the then Soviet Union.

"If you think about how a grape splits open..."

I have seen my own intestine.

Since somebody asked: Semi-Truck blew a red light as I was pulling out of the hospital I worked at. The ED crew ran out, shoveled me off the asphalt, and ran me inside. If it had been anywhere else I'd have bled out before an ambulance arrived. It broke my left everything, including ten ribs, many if which wound up in my lung, one of which is still unaccounted for. I was fortunate enough not to suffer any spinal damage, but I did lose my left leg below the knee. I've made a mostly full recovery, less the.leg and significant lung functionality.

If you think about how a grape splits open when you squeeze it too hard you'll have the right idea.

"Was once..."

Was once knocked unconscious by a territorial alpaca.

"Two teenagers were locked out..."

Two teenagers were locked out of their car and I had nothing in my car to use, so I got it open using a tree branch to hit the unlock button on the key ring (on the ground of the passenger's side floorboard). They called me MacGyver. Best compliment of my life.

"I have no sense of orientation..."

I have no sense of orientation, at all. Every single time I cross the street or follow a road in any direction, of take a turn, I get lost. Every street is completely new to me every time, even though I lived in the same city for 36 years. I get lost at least 2 or 3 times a day. My mother had the same. She always had to use a compass and a map and ask directions every turn. I have Google maps haha luckily for me.

"Neither my mother nor my father..."

Neither my mother nor my father have wisdom teeth, and no one on either side of the family has had wisdom teeth as far back as we know. My sisters also don't have any wisdom teeth.

Somehow, I ended up with eight...t

"McDonald's..."

McDonald's removed part of their playground because I got my leg stuck in it and was hanging upside down.

"A horse fell on top of me..."

A horse fell on top of me and I broke 0 bones, and then rode that horse home.

"I've been shot twice..."

I've been shot twice by the same guy, 10 years apart; been robbed at gunpoint by police in Mexico; stabbed; teargassed; and I once partied with Anthony Kiedis.

"Not all that interesting..."

Not all that interesting but instead of having a cycle of four weeks like most woman do I have a cycle of two months. So instead of being on my period every four weeks I am only on my period once every two months. I am a healthy 21 year old and don't know why this is.

It's highly believed that it is important to learn history as a means to improve our future.

What is often overlooked is that what is taught in history class is going to be very different depending on where you went to school.

And this isn't just internationally, even different regions of the United states will likely have very different lessons on American history.

This frequently results in our learning fascinating, heartbreaking and horrifying historical facts which our middle or high school history teachers neglected to teach us.

Redditor Acherontia_atropos91 was curious to learn things people either wished they had learned, or believe they should have learned, in their school history class, leading them to ask:

What isn’t taught in history class but should be?

So apparently we are in the endemic phase of this nonsense.

We have light at the end of the tunnel.

So what now?

Where do we go from here?

Normal seems like an outdated word.

How do we get back to normal though?

Is it even possible?

What are reaching back to?

Life pre-Covid.

Those were the days.

If only we could bring them back.

Redditor hetravelingsong wanted to discuss our new normal in this hopeful "endemic" phase. So they asked:

"What’s something random you miss about pre-COVID times?"

What do you believe?

Is there a GOD in the sky?

Is he guiding us and helping us?

Life is really hard. Why is that is a big entity is up there loving us?

Atheists have taken a lot of heat for what feels like shunning GOD.

What if they've been right all along?

Maybe let's take a listen and see what they really think.

Redditor __Jacob______ wanted to hear from the people who don't really believe all that "God" stuff. They asked:

"Atheists, what do you believe in?"

The list of what irritates me is endless.

I mean... breathing too loud or dust can set me off.

I'm a bit unstable, yes.

But I'm not alone.

So let's discuss.

Redditor Aburntbagel6 wanted to hear about all the times many of us just couldn't control our disdain. They asked:

"What never fails to piss you off?"
