People Break Down Which Fictional Dog Is Their Absolute Favorite

Y'all I love Scooby-Doo so much that I watched a marathon while in labor with my first kid.

It's THAT serious.


Reddit user Fearless_Link_3464 asked:

"Who is your favorite fictional dog?"

So of course the memory of me pain-singing the theme song to What's New Scooby-Doo? immediately came to mind. That theme song might be my favorite thing Simple Plan has ever done - and that's me speaking as a fan. I never moved beyond my emo phase and there's nothing wrong with that.

Just like there's nothing wrong with loving a sort-of-talking cartoon dog.

Or loving any of these dope doggos; and yes, Scooby shows up on this list - as well he should.

Wishbone

People Break Down The Best 'Don't Knock It Until You Try It' Experiences

Chances are, you've been told to try new things ever since you were a little kid. I know I was.

Sometimes, certain activities or experiences seem crazy, and you don't even want to give them a chance.

This could be true of some things. For example, there is no reason to ingest tide pods.

Sometimes an activity or experience that seems crazy only seems that way because you haven't tried it yet.

I thought nothing good could come of mixing buttery popcorn with Swedish Fish, but now it's my favorite snack!

Redditor TheUnthinkableVids wanted to know about other things that seem crazy, but should be given a chance.

He asked:

"What’s a “don’t knock it till you try it” experience that you would weirdly recommend?"

Wise people tend to glorify the past for good reason. Simpler times seemed to indicate just that. Less life drama.

People Divulge What Makes Their Significant Other So Amazing

Having a dope supportive partner is seriously a game changer, fam.

I'm not suggesting that a person can't achieve success without a relationship. Not at all. What I'm saying, is if you're going to choose to do a team project, it helps when your teammate doesn't suck.

But a moment of honesty - a lot of us have no idea what an amazing partner looks like. If relationships of obligation or convenience, are all you've ever seen, then how could you?

Amazing doesn't look like that at all.

People Break Down Which Things Always Take Way Longer Than They Should

Have you ever gotten ready to do something that you think will only take a minute or two, but end up taking a lot longer?

Like when you try to print a paper at the library before class, only to find out several other students had the same idea. Or when you decide you can finish the Powerpoint for your work presentation during your lunch break, only to realize it needs to be way more in-depth than you first thought.

Chances are, you've been in this situation before. I certainly have! I can't even count the number of times I have given myself two minutes to microwave a meal only to realize my roommate needs it too (and got to it first) and I don't actually have the meal I planned to eat, meaning I need to spend some time figuring out what to eat instead.

Redditor hungrytiredandbored was curious about what other things take longer than they should, and asked:

"What always takes way longer than it should?"
