We're all occasionally guilty of caring too much about things that don't matter while neglecting important responsibilities that seem boring by comparison. The upcoming midterm elections on November 6 may be the perfect example of this—we may all know the status of Ariana Grande and Pete Davidson's relationship, but registering to vote and preparing for the polls will have far more impact on all our lives. To try and course-correct the media-obsessed men and women of Twitter, some crafty trolls are spreading around a prank that also serves an important purpose.


The prank is simple: use a gossipy story and enticing picture to trick Twitter users into clicking the link, which every time leads them to a voter registration website.

This is one of the first ever examples of classic clickbait being used to further the common good. By taking people to vote.org, these pranks will help increase voter turnout, which is ALWAYS a good thing.

The prank spread far and wide!



Historically, only about 40% of eligible voters exercise their Constitutional right during midterm elections, a shameful turnout compared to other countries with more convenient, well-thought-out polling systems. Hopefully these trolls will help bring out the vote even more!


Victims of the prank weren't even mad.


Some even went along with the lie to make sure more people would click the link!


Once people realized they'd been set up, they couldn't help but admit their mistake and register to vote!


The more people vote, the better our country runs.


Oh, by the way! A tourist in France just took this photo of a tiny monkey riding a French Poodle through a fancy restaurant. Click on that link—it's adorable.

Well that was a close call. That is everyone's main life mantra. If you really think about it, you'll know it to be true. Everyday we live, is another day we've survived, and death isn't the only thing we frequently sidestep. I have lost track of the amount of times my heart has almost gotten me into trouble. If I had been able to be with the people I thought I wanted in the past, I'd be in a mental ward right about now. Dodging a bullet doesn't even begin to cover it.

Redditor u/Not-an-Ocelot wanted to hear about the times that have made people give some extra thanks by asking... What's the biggest bullet you've ever dodged?

When your time is up, your time is up. And when we march off into the afterlife it feels like everyone wants one of two or two things. People want to go out in a blaze of glory and/or in peace and without pain. I don't know if both is possible but I'll choose option two please. What I know for sure is I definitely don't want to be smoted by a stupid death. Like, Lord, please don't let me die choking on fried chicken and an XL frozen Appletini at the Dallas BBQ because I was laughing to hard at my own jokes. Please.

Redditor u/BlueD_ wanted everyone to fess up about the times they almost met their maker in a less than dignified manner by asking... What's the dumbest way you almost died?

We may not know it, but sometimes things that seem routine or are just one of our personal habits can really hold back our lives.

One little change to cut those things, or to include new things, can really change the quality of our lives for the better. We have to be willing to drop old routines, which is hard and scary; and we need to be willing to accept new ideas into our space, which is also hard and scary.
