When people who made positive impressions and inspired others to do better in their long and well-lived lives pass away, the loss can be profound.


But a person who was taken from us at an early age can be even more devastating.

What other things would they have accomplished? What additional contributions could they have made to improve society?

These are the questions one may have following the death of someone they admired and necessarily didn't know personally.

People shared examples when Redditor therealCapCon asked:

"What famous person died too soon?"

These ingenious minds contributed so much to society. What else could they have given us? We'll never know.

The list was extensive in the thread.

Some of the early losses that gutted me included Prince–who was a musical genius; and the incomparable Robin Williams–whose extraordinary gifts still touch people today.

May all these young souls rest in peace.

I tend to avoid public bathrooms if I can help it. They are terrible places. Few are clean and I admit I am a bit of a clean freak. My beautiful bottom will not grace a dirty toilet seat, no thank you. I have standards.

I'm being only sort of serious. I've been in a pinch before. But have you ever seen a gas station bathroom that was utterly destroyed by the patron (or patrons) before you? It's a horrible sight. 0/10: Do not recommend.

Naturally, some crazy things happen in your local public restroom. We heard some stories after Redditor RuffNBoy asked the online community,

"What is the wackiest thing you've seen in a public restroom?"

People Break Down Which Behaviors Scream "I'm Not That Smart'

One should never be fooled by a first impression.

Certain people might behave in a way that is less than indicative of what they are actually like, and might prove to be far more impressive, or much less friendly, once you get to know them a little better.

However, sometimes people will behave in a certain way which leaves one unable to avoid making assumptions about people.

Namely, their intelligence.

Redditor sparklingshanaya was curious to hear what behavioral traits the Reddit community took as a sign of possessing a considerable lack of intelligence, leading them to ask:

"What are some behaviors that scream unintelligence?"

One of my favorite horror films ever is Black Christmas (1974). It's the perfect slasher film. It's scary. It's uncompromising. It's sordid. It's eerie. It leaves you with a horrible feeling in the pit of your stomach. It features some great acting, too! There are some powerhouse talents in it, including Olivia Hussey, Keir Dullea, Margot Kidder, and Andrea Martin.

But did you know that the film has been remade? It's been remade twice, as a matter of fact. The first remake, which was released in 2006, was so ridiculous. Not even Martin, who showed up in a glorified cameo in the role of a sorority house mother, could save it.

It was remade again in 2019 — this one bore few similarities to the films that came before it. One wondered why this one even had the same name, but there you have it.

Suffice it to say that the original Black Christmas is untouchable. But it is not the only film out there that should never have been remade. Far from it.

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

"What movie is so perfect that if it would remade, it would be a crime against humanity?"
