"What's the biggest plot hole in history?" –– This was today's burning question from Redditor itsaspecialworld, who reminded us that some things about our world just don't seem to make any sense.

From the creation of the universe to eclipses, there's plenty of reason to wonder how the hell certain things actually happened.


"The creation..."

The creation of the universe. I mean seriously, that just came completely out of nowhere.

"Humans surviving..."

Humans surviving for any length of time given the bizarre duration for which our children are completely defenseless. Obvious BS.

"It's too...

Eclipses.

It's too contrived that the Moon is exactly the right size and distance away to completely cover the Sun from where we look at it on Earth.

"Not so much..."

Not so much a plot hole but a plot point left open for future episodes. All life is carbon based, you can just as readily call it plain old life but we don't. Carbon based implies there's life other than carbon based life that we'll eventually be introduced to.

"A lot of books..."

The Cognitive Revolution.

How? When? What? Why?

A lot of books did try to answer the questions, but I'm not entirely sure why humans of all creatures got such great thinking boxes.

"The crazy part..."

Dark matter.

The crazy part is their likely to fill in the rest of the story later. They usually do.

"Atilla plundering..."

Atilla not plundering Rome because it was needed in a later season. They handled it off-screen by having him talk to some bishop in a tent but it's pretty bad writing if you ask me.

"The writers..."

The bronze age collapse. The writers just pulled these mysterious sea people out of their asses, they destroy everything and then we never hear from them again. Sloppy writing that is.

"Like how??"

Humans become the dominant intelligent species. Like how?? It takes months for a newborn to walk and do sht and somehow we run the whole earth?

"Everyone is walking..."

Everyone is walking around with devices that can access the whole of human knowledge and so many people are still dumb.

We've all said something stupid, let's not lie to ourselves.

The advice "fake it til you make it," though often said with at least a hint of sarcasm, does carry quite a bit of wisdom.

I'm going to be perfectly honest––I'm a city boy. I'm not a huge fan of hiking or camping. I happen to be a huge fan of running water. Have you heard of it? It's great. Highly recommended.

I've also, on a more humorous note, watched far too many horror films over the years and don't particularly like idea of running off into the woods only to piss off some demon that was perfectly fine until I arrived. I also have immense respect for our friendly neighborhood serial killers and demonstrate this regularly by staying out of their territory.

Those who love the great outdoors had plenty to share after Redditor Your_Normal_Loser asked the online community, "

Hikers of Reddit, what is the weirdest or creepiest thing you've come across while hiking?"

Time is of the essence. And time is not definable. Those are lessons we learn as we get older; as times passes and fluctuates in front of us.

Time is always fleeting yet always catches up to us. I find myself shocked when I wake up on certain days and realize I'm a particular age of my parent that sticks out for me.

Like, how did that happen? I guess I should just be thankful I'm still here to witness it all.

Redditor u/TW1103 wanted to discuss the meaning... of time and all of its affects by asking:

What fact really puts the scale of time into an insane perspective?
