Sometimes we make decisions that seem hilarious in the moment but end up being not so cute in the real world.


That is exactly what happened when Reddit user bradimal decided that, when he got his new license in the state of Washington, he would sign his signature as three cat heads. Literally. He drew three cat heads and by some miracle it passed through the system and he received his license with the hysterical signature.

Things weren't as funny a few years later. Here's how it all went down:

"In 2015 I had to renew my license and thought it would be funny to do cat heads as my signature, so I did. For the past 3 years I just forgot about it unless I had to show my ID and they pointed it out. They would laugh and say, 'haha I can't believe they let you do that!' and I would be like, 'yeah, yeah, yeah, let me in the bar now.' I have always signed my name with my regular signature/scribble, not cat heads. This hasn't been a problem until today when I had to sign my mortgage papers. The signing agent looked at my ID and shook his head, he was not amused. I tried to explain that 2015 Brad never imagined he'd own a house. So the dude has to call the title company headquarters and explain the situation all while my real estate agent is laughing her ass off. I had to sign 3 cat heads over 30 times today. Here is pic http://imgur.com/I6olEcY and here is my ID http://imgur.com/xmOmU5n TL;DR had to sign all my mortgage papers with my legal ID signature, which is 3 cat heads."

Not everyone was buying the cat story.

Euthanasia and physician-assisted suicide refer to, as defined by Medical News Today, as the "deliberate action taken with the intention of ending a life, in order to relieve persistent suffering." It's a controversial topic. As of 2021, active human euthanasia is legal in the Netherlands, Belgium, Colombia, Luxembourg, Canada, and Spain. Assisted suicide is legal in Switzerland, Germany, the Australian states of Victoria Northern Territory, and Western Australia.

But this issue has many passionate supporters who often know what it's like to care for someone who would have benefited from the practice. They told their stories after Redditor Random2328 asked the online community,

"What are your thoughts on medically assisted death?"

Privilege is discussed quite a bit these days, and for good reason. So many people are able to live life longer, more peacefully, and freely than others thanks to factors they had no control over.

The law is a fickle mistress, and it varies from state to state and county to county sometimes. And then there is the blatant hypocrisy of it all.

There are some things that feel like they should be allowed to pass but you get scolded for, like jaywalking, and then there are things like actual robbery in broad daylight, like telemarketers and nothing happens to them.

Make it make sense. It's like taxes, the wealthy know loopholes and the poor go to jail. Shameful.

Redditor u/Xanduh wanted everyone to chat about legal life fails by asking:

What do you wish was illegal?

While the world is a dark and scary place, there would not be a world, or a human race, without inherent kindness.

Kindness always gives you a little thump to your heart that nothing else can truly provide. A rush of knowing you've made someone's day better. And you may change the trajectory of that person's life because of it.
