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..."

"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.

The advice "fake it til you make it," though often said with at least a hint of sarcasm, does carry quite a bit of wisdom.

I'm going to be perfectly honest––I'm a city boy. I'm not a huge fan of hiking or camping. I happen to be a huge fan of running water. Have you heard of it? It's great. Highly recommended.

I've also, on a more humorous note, watched far too many horror films over the years and don't particularly like idea of running off into the woods only to piss off some demon that was perfectly fine until I arrived. I also have immense respect for our friendly neighborhood serial killers and demonstrate this regularly by staying out of their territory.

Those who love the great outdoors had plenty to share after Redditor Your_Normal_Loser asked the online community, "

Hikers of Reddit, what is the weirdest or creepiest thing you've come across while hiking?"

Time is of the essence. And time is not definable. Those are lessons we learn as we get older; as times passes and fluctuates in front of us.

Time is always fleeting yet always catches up to us. I find myself shocked when I wake up on certain days and realize I'm a particular age of my parent that sticks out for me.

Like, how did that happen? I guess I should just be thankful I'm still here to witness it all.

Redditor u/TW1103 wanted to discuss the meaning... of time and all of its affects by asking:

What fact really puts the scale of time into an insane perspective?
