Why can't we all just get along? Why do people have to act a fool or try to belittle others with violence?
That is why is can be so delicious to watch a bully or just an ignorant dude get a good comeuppance. Now I don't advocate for violence but, a quick thumping to knock the shoulder chip off or cause to fall from that pedestal they think they're on is sometimes necessary.
Far too many people believe they are invincible so they just act any kind of way to anybody. And every once in a while they meet their match, or they meet their rhetorical "maker." And they cry. And it's beautiful.
Redditor u/ZPM89 wanted to know about the time people made that bad decision to come for someone they should've just ignored, by asking:
What happened when you saw someone pick on the wrong person?
High school is a rough time for many. And bullying doesn't seem to have slowed down. I remember some awful bullies in my school days. And one of the best day was when this one evil kid decided to try and throw this science kid across the room. That science kid knew martial arts. One of them limped to the principal. Guess who?

"Saw a little person bodyslam someone who was about a foot taller than him into for picking on him in high school."
Stay on the field boys...
"During high school the wrestling team and football team shared the weight room where you work out. Some of the football players started picking on the soon to be state champions younger brother. We found out that day that football players while strong can't get out of wrestling holds that make you a human pretzel."
"Watched a guy at a bar pick a fight with a buddy of mine. My buddy is pretty chubby and honestly soft spoken until he gets a few drinks but wouldn't say much to offend anyone. So the fight began and nobody told the other guy that my buddy has been teaching Taekwondo for years. The fight was over very fast."
"Back in 2019, my family and I decided to go on a road trip up the east coast. One night, we decided to stop in Fort Bragg, NC. While there, we elected to head to this small bar to get some dinner before calling it a night. Upon arriving, I notice there's this one really loud dude who's trying to flirt with every single girl that walked into the bar. Anyways, there's this one lady that he's really bugging, and you can visibly tell that she's uncomfortable but he's not stopping."
"That lady then decides to go sit down next to this really quiet bunch of dudes in the corner. Upon noticing the company these men were giving her, he walks up to them and starts losing it. He yells a ton of obscenities and tries to show off the fact that he was a Ranger or something, but these dudes just ignore him. Eventually, he gives up and just grabs the girl's arm."
"At that exact moment, one of the men stands up, grabs that dudes arm, flips him like a ragdoll onto the ground, and pins his arm to the ground. They have a quick chat about niceties before letting him go and that dude is promptly ushered out of the restaurant. Later found out, they were special forces of some type!"
"6th grade, bully decides to pick on the class nerd one more time by pushing his books from his desk to the floor."
"Class nerd grabs a pencil and stabs him directly in the shoulder. The look on the bully's face was pure confusion as the pencil protruded from his shoulder. The nerd was suspended and missed a big overnight trip for our "gifted" kids class, but I like to think he never regretted it."
See there, think before you act. An act like a person not a savage. And maybe get a therapist. Or least takes some deep breaths.
J got it...mma fighter GIF by K_TcH1Giphy
"An incident on the street of our town, too long to explain and not relevant anyway, but a bully of a man grabbed hold of my arms but he didn't realise my six foot son was nearby. J appeared out of nowhere, lifted yer man up by the lapels of his jacket, roared into his face "get your f*****g hands off my mam" and HURLED him across the pavement."
Chad looking guy...
"I was at a Machine Gun Kelly concert a few weeks ago in general admission. We made friends with some people next to us; a dad who took his 14 year old daughter and her friend to the show. He was a really nice guy and his daughter was so excited to be at her first ever concert. 2 minutes after the show starts, a fight breaks out right next to us. We quickly realize it's the dad we met, fighting some late twenties Chad looking guy."
"It lasted only a couple of minutes— we watched as Chad ripped the dad's shirt in half off of him, only for the dad to then clock him so hard in the face that he fell to the ground and scurried away. We later found out from our new friend that the Chad guy had come up to his daughter from the crowd and started touching her inappropriately. He finished out the concert with his daughter, shirtless. It was awesome. lol"
People Break Down The Strangest Rules Their Parents Enforced Growing Up | George Takei’s Oh MyyyThe rules we follow growing up are often rooted in culture and circumstance, but that doesn't mean they always make sense for the world we live in. Or at lea...
"A buddy of mine got a job at a steel mill after graduating with a degree in chemical engineering (the job wasn't related to his degree). While working there, he made a friend, a guy named Lou, whose job it was to stand on a platform over a vessel of molten steel and use a long heavy rod to bash through the cooling steel crust on the top (please forgive my terminology, I don't know the trade)."
"Lou was an unassuming man, about 5'8", bald and not particularly imposing. But he was crazy strong and tough because of the job, among other things. One night, they went for a beer after work and were standing at the bar drinking and chatting. Some drunk a-hole bumps into Lou and gets aggressive. This guy throws a punch and connects on the side of Lou's head."
"Without setting down his beer, Lou grabs him by the front of his shirt with one hand, lifts him off the floor and seats him on the bar. Lou lets him go and quietly says, "I'm going to give you a chance to reconsider." The guy sobers up really fast and says, "Thank you. Please accept my apology." Lou let him get down off the bar, at which point he turned around to the barkeeper, paid his tab, Lou's, and my buddy's, then quietly left, still looking shaken."

"Was standing in line to get poutine in Montreal. Some drunk dude started harassing a bouncer then a police woman came and he started to get physical with her. She flipped him over on his back and handcuffed him. Amazing!"
"The local sheriff's grandson was a bully and would hide behind his grandpa's name. One day during lunch period in high school, he decided to steal a couple books from a nerdy-looking kid I didn't know. Kid immediately saw through it and demanded his stuff back. Bully said he'd have the kid arrested on false accusation charges."
"Kid grabs a fork from someone's lunch tray and drives it into the bully's leg. Bully screams and lurches out of the chair, dropping the books from under his loose-fitting shirt as he does so. Kid picks up his stuff and goes back to eating like nothing happened."
"This is personal. Me and a friend would walk home from middle school. I was in 8th grade and he was in 7th. There was a 9th grader that walked the same route. He was 5 inches taller and 30 pounds bigger than me. He would pick on us all the time. Throw us down. Punch. Spit."
DON'T MESS WITH HUNGRY PEOPLE!!
"Due to covid, Mcdonald's has had an unusually long line. A gang member thought he could cut the line and throw up his gang sign out the window to the long line of people he just cut in front of. The person behind him (small framed dude with his kid in the car) is furious, gets out of his car to confront the gang member. Gang member also jumps out and starts to square up to this scrawny dude."
"Thinking he is the most dominant of the pair, the gang member laughs and tells him to "F**k off before you get hurt". Within 2 seconds, the scrawny dude throws 3 jabs as quick as lightning and drops the gang member on the spot, jumps in the gang members car, drives it onto the road and parks it, gets out and throws the keys over a fence, gets back in his own car and proceeds to stay in line until he receives his order. As he's driving out, the gang member has half come to and boots the man's car as he drives past."
"Annoyed (I'm guessing because his child is in the car) this dude gets out and drops the fool again. Jumps in his car and drives off. Moments later, the gang member comes to again and realises his car is parked on the road. He walks up to it and before he reaches his car, somebody screamed out to him "Your keys are over that fence". By that time, foods ready and we out. Moral of the story, DON'T MESS WITH HUNGRY PEOPLE!!"

"When I was in middle school one time I saw this boy creepily sneaking up on a girl and he grabbed her butt. She spun around smacked him in the face with her purse and started kicking him in the nads. He freaked out and ran off. Never saw him mess with a girl again."
"When I was in HS, 40 years ago, a megajock started harassing, and basically stalking, a girl I knew from a previous activity. She was dating a man who had relatives in the Mafia, and some of them paid him a little visit and while they didn't do anything to him beyond warn him what they could do to him if he kept it up, he got the message and left her alone."
"One of my friends went to an inner city comprehensive school in a rough part of a big city in the north of England. One of the bullies at the school was known for being a sadistic prick that picked on anybody. One morning some new students arrived at the school, and it was apparent they were of gypsy origin."
"The bully made an incredibly derogatory comment about people from gypsy origin. Big mistake. One of the girls of gypsy origin charged at the bully and literally just pummelled him to the ground, then just started savagely beating him. She was landing punches left right and centre, and literally going at him like a wild animal."
"She would not stop! It took 3-4 teachers to get her off him, and even then she was still trying to go for him so they had to get him out of the room. She was screaming all sorts of obscenities at him and saying that he better look over his shoulder as he's a marked man. The bully had to change school and house, according to my friend."
Have a night night...Giphy
"I was dating a woman who's about 5'10 and while not really aggressive, you don't want to mess with her."
"Apparently someone grabbed her butt while she was in line at a bar, she turned around and knocked the guy to the ground with one punch. An hour or two later, a cop showed up, asked her what happened and said "Thank you, just wanted to double-check the facts. Have a night night."
Good Day Sir
"When I was 10 or so my grandparents and I were driving back home to Canada from their condo in Florida. We were coming through the Detroit/Windsor border crossing and stopped just before the border at a Walmart. Some dude rudely tried to shove past us into the store. My grandfather tapped him on the shoulder and told him to apologize to his wife and grandson for being ignorant and inconsiderate."
"This guy was 30 or so if I had to guess, at the time.my grandfather was 61. The guy shoved my grandpa, and then miraculously he was on the ground out like a light. My grandfather waited until he woke from his nap, got the apology, and then bought me ice cream and a hot wheels car. Good day."
"okay that's cool, thanks bro"
"My husband. 7th grade, middle school (ugh) - his family moved and he had to start at a new school. The "alpha male" of the school went up to him his first week there and just socked him in the face out of nowhere - to this day my husband has no idea why, he hadn't even looked at him - he thinks the guy was like trying to assert his dominance, show him who was in charge at that school or whatever lol."
"Anyhow, guy throws a hard punch, husband didn't go down, didn't even flinch. He just laughed at him, said something like "okay that's cool, thanks bro" and walked off laughing. This is not how it went down with the other boys "alpha" dude tried to intimidate, and it made him look really stupid and like a fool in front of all the other kids lolol."
"Husband's best friend that he met there is the one who told me this, bc he saw it happen and it made quite the impression on everyone. I thought that was cool AF how my husband basically took this douchebag down and humiliated him without having to lift a finger lol. He's still the chillest dude. :)"
Out Coldfinn balor fainting GIF by WWEGiphy
"The girl in my high school who had a black belt in grade 9. Very few people knew this, but one guy must have heard a rumor or something and harassed the crap of her."
"All the dumb jokes you can imagine if you were picking on someone for being in karate. Screaming HI-Yah, and fake karate chops… He was warned that she could kick his butt and he asked her to prove it. So one day she did. She knocked that boy out cold. It was fantastic."
Go forth with kindness. Nobody likes a bully or a fool. When you lead with violence, karma will find you. Please let me be there!

We've all played the "What I would do if I was rich" game.
You've imagined a trillion scenarios for what you would do (after you paid off your debt, of course) with wads of cash. In your imagination, you've given money to friends, started charities or businesses, and probably bought your fair share of imaginary real estate.
And that's all just the basics. We haven't even gotten into all the rich-people hobbies you could take up like SCUBA golfing, sailboat customization, or learning how to melt down antique jewelry to make gem-encrusted bongs for yoga Wednesdays at the gym-slash-coffeehaus.
Reddit user BabySuperfreak asked:
"What's your fantasy 'rich person hobby'?"
Reddit is absolutely right there with you, folks.
CarpentrySeason 4 Wow GIF by The SimpsonsGiphy
"Woodworking, which I already enjoy. But I'd have a huge workshop with all of the expensive tools."
"It's fun to figure out how you could spend increasingly large amounts of money on a hobby."
"$10k? Sweet garage shop."
"$100k? Build a huge shop and tweak it out. Loan it out to people who don't have access to shops."
"$1M? I have no idea. Train under the best woodworkers in the world? Visit exotic locales to see how materials/supplies are produced?"
"I just want my own bandsaw and I'll be happy, but yeah it's my dream to have my own little shop in a quaint little building in my backyard. It would be the cutest girliest little grandma-core workshop out of a fairytale picture book."
"I'd have little organized stations for everything and it would be so satisfying!"
"I've built a pretty decent 'shop' through marketplace and estate sales. Taken a while but I have most of the major tools I need. Affording wood is another story"
Want To Grab Lunch?
"I want to be a 'lady who lunches'."
"You could even step up your game and do 'Brunch' on Sunday! They would say 'wow she is so rich'.”
"Word. Except I think I would hate those people and just lunch w people who are self-employed artists and/or homeless."
"Those are the only two groups you'd eat lunch with?"
MiniaturesStartup Miniatures GIF by Mighty OakGiphy
"I love building miniatures. I helped my dad build a few models as a kid. Then I stumbled onto those miniature rooms you can buy on Amazon. Surprisingly cheap for the decent quality. I've done about 10 of them and have another 20 on my wishlist."
"I went to a hobby store the other day in search of a material for a custom mini, and my friend brought to me a giant box of a model of the Enterprise. For $1200. 3 months' rent."
"I know my first stop after winning the lottery"
"As a gamesworkshop fan I feel you. I’ve got a wishlist too."
"Being rich, you could build 1:1 scale miniatures."
SailingSewing Bee Hello GIF by The Great British Sewing BeeGiphy
"Sailing sounds fun as hell"
"Sailing is fun as hell. I’ve been crewing now for about 7 years."
"Sailing is cheap. It is owning a boat that’s expensive. I pay $350 a year for access to my local club’s boats if I do want to go take a boat out myself."
"Boat owners frequently spend $350 on parts for a single event, and people always need dependable and reliable crew."
"I’ve even gotten flown out to tropical places and had my accommodations paid for at bigger events! I don’t even own a boat, just pull lines!"
"If you live near a racing community, you can get into sailing at the cost of maybe some sandwiches for the team, or occasionally replacing sunglasses you drop in the drink, you just need the right attitude."
"I agree, but only during the day as the ocean according to videos seems pretty terrifying looking at night"
"Sailing is it for me too, particularly cruising. I'd like a nice, 45 ft catamaran that I could cruise around on with the family."
"I have more immediate ambitions to get a little beach cat (Hobie cat, etc) or a dinghy and improve my sailing skills."
"My local 'yacht club' has a learn to sail class that's pretty affordable for a two day introductory class and going out sailing twice (~$100). I did it last year, but I'm considering doing it again as I didn't exactly consolidate my skillet with practice in between."
"Traveling. I know it isn’t much of a hobby, but traveling can be very expensive, and I’ve always wanted to travel the world."
"Beside the cost, getting time off from your full time job can be very hard. I want to spend the summer traveling in XYZ, not fly in, have a couple of days looking around then fly back to work. There's no time to really relax and enjoy the experience"
"Be one of those people perpetually on vacation."
"I'm with you on that. I see all the wonderful places to travel and will never be able to go to them. At least many are on streaming channels now."
"Traveling without budget or ANY money worries. I'd like that. No more sh*tty third-grade hotels and public transportation *joys* and just enjoying the trip."
"I'd travel the world till I physically can't lol that sounds fun"
Esthetic Farmingcalfs GIFGiphy
"Owning a hobby farm/garden with *small breeds of farm animals (mini cheviot sheep, serama chickens, bantam call ducks, miniature jersey cows) *lush vegetation (english garden/new cottage style landscaping) *an orchard with a huge range of different kinds of each fruit and climate controlled greenhouses for plants that wouldn't grow in my region"
"Would they be miniature fruit trees? I want the small animals walking amongst the small trees with small fruit."
"I would love it to have ducks, cats, dogs, rabbits anything to be honest and just watch them enjoy their time and play around. A small pond for the animals to cool down, big trees for nice cool shadows and also some fruits that drop for them etc."
"I'd like to have a large collection of really cool fossils. The really neat ones are expensive."
"Oooh, good thought. You know there's a tech billionaire somewhere (I'm blanking on which one) that got really into collecting gemstones after he got swindled into buying some fakes."
"He found the geology of them fascinating and now he has the biggest jewel collection outside of a royal family and was in a documentary talking about them."
"I think pure geekery unfettered by financial restraints may my favorite use of a large fortune."
"Like a complete T-Rex skeleton and a complete Triceratops skeleton and make them fight like action figures... I'm not going to judge."
Preservation Of WildlifeHappy Feel Good GIFGiphy
"I'd really like to hire a ton of experts to help me find and preserve a wildlife habitat with all native species."
"Get rid of all the invasive plants and whatnot and make it how it was before we got here. I'd be the anti gardener."
"Same goals club! I’ve got a good 100 acres chugging away just woods. Have had several offers to buy it but they’re gonna have to wait til I’m dead."
"Last guy asked me why I wouldn’t sell. 'Because somebody already lives there sir.' Him-' but your house is way up there.' Me- 'yea but the birds and bugs live here.' Also learned that old people get pissed off when young people own land and don’t develop it into housing editions. 'People could live here!' People could live somewhere else too."
"Mine is similar: I want to make a huge bee sanctuary filled with all sorts of wildflowers and plants, with an absolute ton of pollinators like bees, butterflies and moths."
"Also all sorts of other interesting plants like oak trees and wild grass."
"Yours is my favorite I think :)"
'Paying' It ForwardTalking Season 3 GIF by The SimpsonsGiphy
"Anonymously paying debts or giving things to people in need."
"Robin Hood, that you?"
"I'd help with that if I could!"
"I think it would feel pretty amazing to sit in a bankruptcy court and pay off a defendant’s judgment. Idk how it works, though, like whether you can make a payment anonymously on someone else’s behalf."
"I wouldn’t pay off debts (other than to immediate family members), but I like the idea of randomly paying for groceries or gas for strangers."
"Especially at the last week or so of each month. Have some type of set up so I could have an arrangement with a store’s manager to call down to the cashier to just tell the customer after they scan everything, 'It’s your lucky day! You don’t have to pay!'."
"Operating a maker space that enriches the community and enables everyone to have access to tools and space to create anything they need / want."
"oh yeah my husband and I have talked about doing this"
"I'd love to have this for music. Like a rehearsal complex for certain younger artists I see potential in."
"Also have a recording studio nearby as well. Just try to develop some sort of niche community of musicians that focus on certain aspects of music"
"Have all the stuff like drumkits, guitar amps, all that in each room already (kind of like a normal rehearsal space you pay for). Maybe even some cheaper guitars so that even if you don't have money you can use them"
"Maybe do some community events with all the people, and who knows. Maybe some amazing bands or groups could come from it."
Alright bougie broke friends, it's your turn at the mic.
We know what Reddit would do for hobbies if they got rich, but what about you?
Anybody suddenly feel like funding a documentary into Tevin Campbell's life, music, and how homophobia robbed him of a bigger career and the community of a cornerstone personality?
No? Just me and my love for Mr. Campbell acting up again?
When it comes to expressing love, there is a multitude of ways to go about it. Most people stick to the classic: using the words "I love you."
But that's not the only way.
Using thoughtful gestures, love languages, special messages, or even just remembering little details about another person are all great ways to express love.
Curious about all the different ways of expressing love, Redditor sadesspresso asked:
"What is the best way to say “I love you” without actually saying “I love you”?"
"The moon is beautiful...."
"Some old japanese man told me some story and 'the moon is beautiful ' is supposed to mean I love you...."
"Minä rakastan sinua"
"Just say it in another language, and keep learning new languages."
Through Their Stomach
"I made your favourite food"
"This is the way. I bake my husband his favourite treats even though he’s the only one who likes them. That way if he’s having a blah day at work he opens his lunch and feels love"
"Definitely the way! I would love to just receive some homecooked food without having to ask first!"
Pride And Pride
"I’m proud of you"
"My wife pulled me aside after an especially brutal day at work and hugged me and whispered this in my ear. This was two weeks ago. I'm still floating."
Appreciating The Superstitions
"Kissing my husband goodbye before he goes to work."
"I read somewhere that men who kiss their wives before leaving for work live five years longer than those who don't. So even if I'm not a morning person, I drag myself out of the bed to make sure that I give him a kiss before he leaves for work. It might or might not be true, but I wish to do everything I can so he could live longer because I kinda like him."
"I kiss him when he arrives at work. He will live long."
Using Their Love Language
"There are different kinds of love languages aside from saying I love you. Giving gifts, physical touch, doing acts of service or nice things for them, and spending quality time. I think for me, time is such a selfless love language, because you’re showing that person that they are actually worth your time. And it doesn’t have to spent doing anything extravagant."
"Figuring out their love language and doing something that speaks to them most."
"Depends on what their love languages are. That shi* works."
"Remembering the small details."
"Remembering their likes and dislikes, favorite color, personal style, etc. Using the knowledge to please them often."
"The best way is to show how you care."
"Eg, you're making a coffee or cup of tea and you make one for them without asking, because you already know they'll say yes if you ask."
"Or they're working outside in the sun and you come out with a cold drink for them."
"Small things that show you're thinking about them."
"Surprise them with their favorite food or snacks/dessert. Ask them how their day is. Do their chores before they notice."
"Making sure their phone is fully charged for them before they leave the house."
Getting Home Safe
"Text me when you get home"
"This. My BF and I say this every time and do text each other when we do get home."
I Choose You
"If I had to choose between rescuing you or my PC from a fire, it'd only take me 10 seconds to choose you."
"I cleaned out the cat’s litter box so you don’t have to."
"According to my wife... Doing the dishes."
"Came home from work yesterday knowing I had to do laundry."
"In my apartment complex that just means walking up a flight of steps, walking down an outdoor hallway, and unlocking a door to the laundry room. But it's such a pain in because you have to set alarms for yourself and come back out to move the clothes to the dryer and collect them before you even get to worry about folding them."
"So yesterday I came home from work and my bf had done my laundry for me. He didn't fold it, but it was sitting, clean and done, by our bed ready to be folded and put away. No alarms, no trips, just a quick little in-place chore and it was over."
"That to me is love."
Well, after all, actions speak louder than words.
It doesn't have to be all about action, however. Just finding a new way to say, "I love you" can do wonders for you and the people you love.
Humans, we fall in and out of grace with one another constantly.
But there are reasons.
People change one another's mind through behavior.
At first you can really like someone.
Enjoy their company.
Spend tons of quality time with them.
Then one day, they drop the facade of their character and show you some true colrs.
And those colors can be stomach turning.
Then respect goes out the window.
And all you can say is...
"I can't even look at you anymore."
Redditor MissMona_69 wanted to talk about all the people we can longer be face to face with. They asked:
"What types of people have you no respect for?"
I can't stand hypocrites. I lose all respect there.
"People who fake mental illnesses for attention."
"SO TRUE. In middle school, I had a friend who faked mental illnesses (not 100% sure but at least 99.9% of the things they said were self-inconsistent). Screwed up my perspective on mental illness and I'm still trying to change that."'
"People who don’t understand the difference between opinion & fact and assume that their opinion is a fact."
"For some reason I see a crap ton of this in a horror movie group I'm in. Horror is such a subjective genre with many various subgenres and the amount of people that just absolutely crap on movies and state their opinions as fact is annoying as hell. Of course the music groups I'm in do the same thing too."
"People who can't admit they are in the wrong and sidestep by blaming you for something that happened years ago."
"My mom does it to me too. If she screws up, she blames me, and once proven wrong, she immediately brings up how I screwed something up from like 14 years ago, and somehow uses that to make me feel like it is my fault."
"People who take advantage of old, senile people. What caliber of piece of crap must you be. Fucking cowards, I spit on you."
"I used to work in supportive housing for folks with various disabilities, one day a client came to be crying because he didn’t have rent for the month. The reason?"
"He was scammed by someone pretending to be from social security. They called him to say that he had to pay back money from a (fabricated) overpayment or he would go to jail. It was extremely sad. Also saw lots of lonely elderly folks get scammed by internet 'girlfriends,' F**k scammers."
"YES! Here is where the true rage comes in! I live in a beautiful city and the amount of litter is revolting. It makes me so angry. I never chuck anything on the damn floor as there will undoubtedly be a bin nearby. It’s just laziness and carelessness."
Why do people litter? It's so gross. Save the world.
The Real Truth
"People who speak 'truth' without trying to understand perspectives outside their own."
"Along those lines, people who describe themselves as 'brutally honest.' Nah, chances are you're just an a**hole."
"People who are rude to wait staff and people who leave their shopping carts around the parking lot."
"I have always believed there are two types of people, those who return the cart to the corral and those who don’t. And this simple action tells me more about a person than a 2 hour long conversation."
"People who have no introspection and always play the victim."
"So I see you have met my brother. In the process of being sentenced for armed robbery but he still blames his pregnant dope head gf with some bs about how it was to support them and regularly busts out the alligator tears to get our mom to put money on his books."
"People who crap on retail workers or lowest wages just to feel better than them with no reason, screw them all."
"I had a coworker like this, dude was brainwashed into believing the franchise license and stock when the giant corporation had very negative company health and it reflected... Most popular chains in retail encourage low wage and try to establish an odd seniority hierarchy."
"People who smoke around children, especially in the same car."
"I 100000% agree with you and I’m a smoker. I don’t care if it’s cold, raining, windy, hot I’m going to stand my a** outside and have a smoke. I don’t smoke inside my house and I never have."
"I think you’d like to meet my neighbor that lives downstairs. She smokes all day long with an infant strapped to her chest."
Well this is a long list of nonsense people. Steer clear.
So many animals are only dangerous because of their need for survival or hunger.
Humans make the relationship with the animal kingdom worse.
Is there no way to co-exist?
One Redditor wanted to discuss aspects of the animal kingdom.
"Which animal gets undeserving hate?"
Tigers and lions. Have you seen the videos of the tigers and lions who have bonded with their human? It's possible.
Bless Youbat flying GIF by eve_agramGiphy
"Bats. They eat billions of insects. You should be thanking them."
"Vultures, eating dead bodies might seem ugly to some but other animals do the same thing but also murder them so how is just finding something that’s already dead and eating that worse, also eating a carcass removes deadly diseases like botulism from the environment."
"I always show my appreciation to the local goth turkeys."
"Blob Fish... they just get yeeted out of the water and the massive pressure difference makes them look 'strange.' Kinda rude I guess. Like if we get yeeted into space and Aliens would laugh at our disfigured forms and print T-Shirts of it."
"I think I read somewhere that the pressure change causes their cells to explode and that’s why they look so horrific after being pulled out of the water. Dunno how factual that is."
Not the Villain
"Hyenas, partially because a whole generation grew up watching them help kill Mufasa lol."
"I've seen people arguing this before but people hate hated hyenas years before the lion king came out. They were constantly used in folklore as villains and opportunist and were often considered unlucky in most african cultures."Eaglekingoftheskies

"Crows. Yes, I understand the caws can be annoying, but they're far more intelligent than a lot of people give them credit for."
"Possums! They eat pests and won't typically bother you unless rabid or provoked."
"Quick reminder then you need to specify which kind of possum, because not everyone here is from America. There a lots of possums here in Australia but they are completely different from the American kind in temperament! Only annoyance with possums here is if they get into your roof. Meanwhile in New Zealand, possums are ALWAYS a pest."
Bad Movie Vibes
"The guy who wrote Jaws ended up writing another book explaining how misunderstood sharks are. Because the movie Jaws scared everyone, and fishermen began to hunt sharks, making them endangered."
"I was gonna say this! They're not bad guys they are just doing shark stuff! It's the freakin' dolphin types you gotta watch out for. Orcas will kill for fun. A shark is just trying to eat and don't see that well."
"Black Cats.They aren't evil and they don't bring bad luck."
"It's a frequent mistake, but black cats actually bring good luck and blessings from The Void!
"Be sure to tell all your friends. If we work together to insist that black cats are good luck, we can help turn over the discrimination. Also, I have proof that they are good luck - whenever I see a black cat I become happy. Coincidence? I think not!!"
