This grandpa kicks serious ass!

Feast your eyes on Denis O'Connor, an 83-year-old great grandfather who refused to let three armed robbers ruin his night of gambling.

Last Saturday, three armed punks reckoned they could easily rob Bar One Racing bookmakers in Glanmire, Ireland. It turned out to be a terrible idea, as Denis O'Connor wasn't in the mood for their nonsense.

He quickly ousted the hapless trio from the premises, bull rushing and shooing them away with a bar stool. O'Connor displayed incredible bravery and impressive hand-to-hand combat skills while beating back the robbery attempt.

The internet responded by declaring O'Connor a certified badass:



These robbers ought to be ashamed of themselves. According to eyewitnesses on the scene, O'Connor yelled, "You're cowards, you're total cowards," as he scuffled with the masked men.

Upon further analysis, it appears to be true. The robbers seemed shocked by the great grandfather's fearless attack, and they soon fell into a near panic and scrambled to escape the bookmakers.

Here's what O'Connor had to say about his heroic feat:

You can either sit down and do nothing, or take a stand. I decided to stand up to these people.

Bravo, Denis! But it's okay if you'd like to sit down after all that action last weekend.

Somebody get this man a recliner and a cigar!

Conspiracy theories are beliefs that there are covert powers that be changing the course of history for their own benefits. It's how we see the rise of QAnon conspiracies and people storming the capital.

Why do people fall for them? Well some research has looked into the reasons for that.

The Association for Psychological Science published a paper that reviewed some of the research:

"This research suggests that people may be drawn to conspiracy theories when—compared with nonconspiracy explanations—they promise to satisfy important social psychological motives that can be characterized as epistemic (e.g., the desire for understanding, accuracy, and subjective certainty), existential (e.g., the desire for control and security), and social (e.g., the desire to maintain a positive image of the self or group)."

Whatever the motivations may be, we wanted to know which convoluted stories became apart of peoples consciousness enough for them to believe it.

I hate ghosts, even if it's Casper. My life is already stressful enough. I don't need to creeped out by spirits from the beyond. Shouldn't they be resting and basking in the glow of the great beyond instead of menacing the rest of us?

The paranormal seems to be consistently in unrest, which sounds like death isn't any more fun or tranquil than life. So much for something to look forward to.

Some ghosts just like to scare it up. It's not always like "Ghosthunters" the show.

Redditor u/Murky-Increase4705 wanted to hear about all the times we've faced some hauntings that left us shook, by asking:

Reddit, what are your creepy encounters with something that you are convinced was paranormal?

A lot of talk going on about women's bodies, isn't there?

Not necessarily with women front and center as part of the conversation, unfortunately.
