Apples didn't work out so well for Adam and Eve or Snow White, but the saying goes that an apple a day is good for you. Of course it's only supposed to keep away doctors, not snakes or evil stepmothers.

Reddit user SpacedJ asked "If garlic keeps vampires away, and apples keep doctors away, what do other fruits and vegetables keep away?"

Here are the suggestions.

I recently brought hard boiled eggs to work and my coworker (older than me by 40 years) got super confused and freaked out because my eggs were brown. He had never, in 65 years, seen a brown chicken egg. "Aren't eggs supposed to be white?" He kept asking. I explained that chicken eggs can come in all kinds of colors and I swear I blew his mind. He then went into a tirade, demanding to know why the brown eggs "cost more." He literally didn't know they existed a moment before, but just assumed they cost more than white eggs. He got so upset he left and didn't come back to the water cooler for the rest of the day.

So, brown eggs keep the confused baby boomer away, I guess.

White is Just Bleached Wheat

When traveling and seeing the world, it is always best to also understand the lay of the land.

That seems to be something we forget.

As tourists, it's suddenly, "All bets are off. I have no manners. And I'm here to burn down the town!"

You know people still live and work there right?

And that a touch of decorum is much appreciated.

So let's see what the locals would like from us while we visit.

Redditor Winterbeers wanted world travelers to listen up to the locals for a minute before you run off to your destination. They asked:

"People who live at tourist destinations, what is it you wish tourists would stop doing when visiting?"

People Explain Which Jobs Have Become Woefully Over-Romanticized

Movies make so many jobs look cool to a point where we're like... "I want to do that!"

But in the end it's some of the most tedious, boring stuff we could do and then of course the danger factor always looks sexy until... you're in danger.

Being frivolous with our lives is romantic on paper, but makes you cry in reality.

And most of the time, the jobs don't pay.

That would be nice to know sooner.

People Divulge Which Questions They'd Like To Ask Trans People Without Judgment

Humans are naturally curious creatures - it's a primate thing.

As kids, we tend to explore those curiosities and ask whatever random question popped into our heads. As adults, we learn that some stuff just isn't our business. Some questions are intrusive or uncomfortable.

We don't necessarily "mature" beyond ever having an inappropriate or intrusive curious thought. We are just mature enough to know we aren't entitled to those answers, and that it's unfair to make someone uncomfortable by asking those questions.

But then there's Reddit...

The day Joe Biden won the 2020 Presidential Election, people literally took to the streets to celebrate, giving an idea that people weren't so sad to see his predecessor leave office.

Indeed, many think so ill of the 45th President of the United States, that people have a hard time even saying or writing his name.

Throughout his tumultuous, often headline-making four years in office, he was frequently referred to as the "worst President of all time."

But was he?

Redditor Unaball3r was curious to hear who the Reddit community considered the all time worst leader of the free world, leading them to ask:

"Who was actually the worst President in US History and why?"
