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.

May all these young souls rest in peace.

Being rich looks fabulous.

I know, money isn't everything.

I've seen the super rich literally throw money away, because they could.

They never see it as waste.

I want to be able to waste.

I wouldn't, but I'd like the option.

Redditoralexduvalowanted to know what rich love to throw money at in bundles.They asked:

"What do insanely rich people buy that poor people have no idea about?"

Don't you hate it when you get deceived by something pretty?

Like... "fooled you."

Those are the thoughts you get when you grab a rose and a bee jumps out and stings you.

Every group or community has its bees.

Or the more you learn about said groups you realize it's one big beehive.

Nothing is ever really the same from the outside in.

"What community seems really nice from the outside, but is actually really toxic?"

Have you ever wished you could pee a different liquid?

No?

Well, just give it some thought.

What if you could urinate something which could actually help others, or something which could ease your financial burdens, akin to the goose who laid the golden eggs?

Then too, what if you could change things up, and pee something a bit more interesting than the customary pale yellow urine we currently produce?

Redditor aggles_N533PA encouraged the Reddit community to allow their imaginations to go wild, when they took to Reddit to ask:

"If you have the ability pee whatever liquid you want, what would you like to pee?"
