After wading through the onslaught, convincing that your personal and professional elements make you worth thousands of dollars per year, days off, and a healthcare package, the tables turn.

But when given the chance to ask a question of their own during a job interview, many people don't seize the opportunity as well as they could.


For many, the interview process is an excruciating pocket of time dedicated to impressing somebody that's more experienced, far more embedded in their comfort zone, and has a dope name plate.

That attitude holds firm when the interviewer asks of any questions the prospective candidate may have.

Thus, a unique opportunity to learn about any problems, concerns, or get an accurate picture of the job and the work is given away.

Usually, folks just ask something that, again, impresses.

Some Redditors shared their ideas for empowering interviewees to do right by themselves despite the intimidating context.

And some, of course, just got plain silly.

Conspiracy theories are beliefs that there are covert powers that be changing the course of history for their own benefits. It's how we see the rise of QAnon conspiracies and people storming the capital.

Why do people fall for them? Well some research has looked into the reasons for that.

The Association for Psychological Science published a paper that reviewed some of the research:

"This research suggests that people may be drawn to conspiracy theories when—compared with nonconspiracy explanations—they promise to satisfy important social psychological motives that can be characterized as epistemic (e.g., the desire for understanding, accuracy, and subjective certainty), existential (e.g., the desire for control and security), and social (e.g., the desire to maintain a positive image of the self or group)."

Whatever the motivations may be, we wanted to know which convoluted stories became apart of peoples consciousness enough for them to believe it.

I hate ghosts, even if it's Casper. My life is already stressful enough. I don't need to creeped out by spirits from the beyond. Shouldn't they be resting and basking in the glow of the great beyond instead of menacing the rest of us?

The paranormal seems to be consistently in unrest, which sounds like death isn't any more fun or tranquil than life. So much for something to look forward to.

Some ghosts just like to scare it up. It's not always like "Ghosthunters" the show.

Redditor u/Murky-Increase4705 wanted to hear about all the times we've faced some hauntings that left us shook, by asking:

Reddit, what are your creepy encounters with something that you are convinced was paranormal?

A lot of talk going on about women's bodies, isn't there?

Not necessarily with women front and center as part of the conversation, unfortunately.
