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.

"Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the hottest and dumbest of them all?"

I know that is not verbatim the original quote, but it is close to the original.

Brains and beauty are always intertwined.

So often people confess about wanting to be more of the other.

No one is ever happy where they are. Why are we like that?

If given a chance, like a Disney movie, how do you trade?

Is it superficial to want looks over knowledge? Or vice versa?

Let's get deep....

Redditor BroodyBatman wanted to know who was willing to give up a little bit of brains for a whole lot of beauty, so they asked:

"Would you give up 15-20 IQ points to be really, REALLY ridiculously good looking? Why?"

The world is not so big a place, is it?

While we like to think of ourselves as isolated in this billion plus planet, there can be a lot more crossover than we think. We call these instances coincidences, hoping to find the right word to explain what happens when a one-in-a-million chance occurs.

If there's over seven billion plus people in the world, turns out you can run into these 'coincidences' more often than you think.

Let me make a quick point about conspiracy theories: Do people understand just how difficult it is for many of the conspiracies they claim to believe in to come to fruition? We're talking global levels of cooperation here, by the way, and it's clear the world can't even get itself out of a pandemic sooo...

But thankfully, there are some more innocent comnspiracies out there. For example, a former classmate once told me that he was convinced he couldn't remember all the items on his shopping list because of shopping elves distracting him to buy other things he didn't exactly need.

To be fair, he was a little stoned at the time and I told him he might want to consider just writing and referring to a shopping list.

People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor ConcentrateNext1734 asked the online community,

"What’s a conspiracy that you believe, but the majority of people don’t believe or know about?"

Children are very impressionable. They're also little humans, remember, and all quite different. Some are more afraid of some things than others. When I was a kid, some of my classmates were utterly terrified of Chucky, the killer doll.

I think he worked the best in the first film and to a larger extent in the second, but after that? Those movies got a bit ridiculous, wouldn't you agree?

Well, the memories linger, as you can imagine.

People took us on a trip down memory lane after Redditor teacatpeng asked the online community,

"What’s something you saw (as a kid) that gave you nightmares for a long time?"
