"I'm never doing that again," they said, after drinking too much Moonshine and waking up on top of a garage. Some things you only need to do once.

-Schino- asked Redditors that have learned their lesson: What are some of your "Well, I'm never doing that again" moments?

10. Moonshine. 'Nuff said.

I was about 30 and it was St Patricks Day.

I was watching the Six Nations Rugby, Ireland V England, at an Irish pub in the U.K.

There was a bottle of "Holy Water" with a picture of the Virgin Mary on the front. That had been brought back from Ireland. Apparently from the shrine at Knock, county Mayo.

However as became apparent, the "holy water" was in fact poteen, and not from a shop, if you get what i'm saying. People were sharing it around, having a little sip. "Just wet your lips" was the phrase. Well i had a couple of glasses at about 3 p.m. I woke up at 6 a.m. the next morning ON TOP OF A GARAGE ROOF.

I got home around 7 a.m. and slept all day, was sick every hour or two and didn't recover for two or three days.

Don't drink moonshine. Ever.


First time I ever had moonshine O got into a state where I didn't realize how drunk I was and kept going back for other things. I remember thinking the buzz was wearing off so I should have just another shot to sip while it does. Totally caused me to miscalculate and drink more than I ever drank in my life.

Had the only hangover of my life after that. Never again.


9. "No I won't show you my Grindr."

Telling my friends whom I have a crush on... they're "trustworthy."


My brother made the mistake of telling a friend he was gay in high school. She asked his best friend if he had told her. The next day, literally everyone knew because the "best friend" was a loud mouthed c*nt.


8. Go big or go home.

The very first time I tried Marijuana was in the form of an edible.

A 500mg edible.


This hiking thing looks pretty fun, maybe I should start with Mount Everest


Worst thing is when you try an edible for the first time, go in with a low dose to play it safe, a couple hours go by and it's nothing big, so time to double that dose, another hour goes by and oh wait, it's that first dose kicking in.

7. Pass.

We have ocean kayaks which are built for riding waves. We lived on a dangerous stretch of the Pacific, which was great for riding waves. Your paddle is tethered to the boat like a surf board is to your ankle, so if you wipe out it doesn't get lost, you just hang on to the paddle. Well, I'm coming into a wave, the kayak flips and the wave makes it smack into my head as I hit the water. the paddle tether wraps around my neck and I get dragged to shore by the noose and buyout boat. I never surfed with a kayak again. A board is a lot safer.


Start of this year I kayaked in the ocean too against the waves. I underestimated one of the waves and unfortunately, the kayak topped forwards nose diving into the water. This water was shallow too.


6. Nope nope nope.

I uhhh tried to wax my own armpits. I've been doing my own eyebrows for years and have had other parts professionally done with no major issues so I figured, hey, I know what this feels like, I can make it happen, and then I don't have to shave for two weeks. Cool. So I applied the wax and the cloth strip you use to rip it off, but when I went to rip it off, I...couldn't. I don't know if it was the angle of my arm or the size of the patch, but that shit was stuck on there like superglue.

I ended up having to call my partner at the time in from the other room to do it for me. I shrieked so loud or neighbors came knocking on the door to make sure no was actively being murdered, only to find me doubled over in the bathroom with one arm in the air bleeding from the armpit and my partner on the floor in the entryway howling with laughter.

...lesson learned.


5. What were you expecting?

Going to see Plymouth Rock.

It's a f*cking rock.


Wait, what did you think it was going to be?


At the very least, a bigger rock. It's like the size of a beanbag chair.


My dad loves the American Civil War and him and mum took a trip around the battlefields.He came home and showed me all the pictures he'd taken. 80% of these were just fields. Just pictures and pictures of fields. Exactly like the ones we have here. Fields.

It was then I realized the true depth of my mother's love for him cos there's no f*cking way I would have gone on that trip.


To be fair I've been to the battlefields before and pics don't do them justice. It's definitely something you have to be there for to get the full scope of the battle.


4. This was a poor plan.

Another post reminded me: I snorted Pop Rocks. You could hear my sinuses popping. Spoiler alert: it f'ing hurt


A bunch of kids in my middle school back in the 80s snorted Pixie Stix. I'm not sure I understand even now.


Pretty sure kids still do that.


Smarties were banned at my school because kids would crush them me and then snort em.


3. Okay yeah no.

Washing my balls with hand sanitizer.


In the Navy we dared someone to rub one out with icy hot. He started and was like this is amazing, why isn't everyone doing this it's so nniiiiiii see why. God it burns it burns.


2. Where tf were you hiking dude?

Grabbed an electric fence, hurt like sh*t, went to climb under it, scraped off my back, decided to never go off course when hiking again.


Were you hiking in Jurassic Park?


1. Same. Never again.

When I was a little kid, I stuck a finger into the cigarette lighter in my dads car. He wasn't a smoker and I didn't know what it was for. I seared my fingerprint crispy.


"But the lighter isn't red, it's black. It's probably not hot." *sizzle*

Why yes, I've done this.


My exact thought process the one time I tried it. Smelled terrible too.

Have you ever been reading a book, watching a movie, or even sitting down for a fantastical cartoon and began to salivate when the characters dig into some doozy of a made up food?

You're not alone.

Food is apparently fertile ground for creativity. Authors, movie directors, and animators all can't help but put a little extra time and effort into the process of making characters' tasty delights mouthwatering even for audiences on the other side of the screen.

Read on for a perfect mixture of nostalgia and hunger.

AllWhammyNoMorals asked, "What's a fictional food you've always wanted to try?"

Some people were all about the magical foods eaten in the magical places. They couldn't help but wish they could bite into something with fantastical properties and unearthly deliciousness.


"Enchanted golden apple" -- DabbingIsSo2015

"The Minecraft eating sounds make me hungry" -- FishingHobo

"Gotta love that health regeneration" -- r2celjazz

"Pretty sure those are based off the golden apples that grant immortality. Norse mythology I think?" -- Raven_of_Blades

Take Your Pick

"Nearly any food from Charlie and the Chocolate factory" -- CrimsonFox100

"Came here to say snozzberries!" -- Utah_Writer

"Everlasting Gobstoppers #1, but also when they're free to roam near the chocolate river and the entire environment is edible." -- devo9er

Peak Efficiency

"Lembas" -- Roxwords

"The one that fills you with just a bite? My fat a** would be making sandwiches with two lembas breads and putting bacon, avocado and cheese inside. Then probably go for some dessert afterwards. No wonder why those elves are all skinny, eating just one measly bite of this stuff." -- sushister

Some people got stuck on the foods they saw in the cartoons they watched growing up. The vibrant colors, the artistic sounds, and the exaggerated movements all come together to form some good-looking fake grub.

The One and Only

"Krabby patty 🍔" -- Cat_xox

"And a kelp shake" -- titsclitsntennerbits

"As a kid I always pretended burgers from McDonalds were Krabby Patties, heck from time to time I still do for the nostalgia of it all. Many of my friends did the same thing." -- Thisissuchadragtodo


"The pizza from an extremely goofy movie. The stringy cheese just looked magical lol" -- ES_Verified

"The pizza in the old TMNT cartoon as well." -- gate_of_steiner85

"Only bested by the pizza from All Dogs Go to Heaven." -- Purdaddy

Get a Big Old Chunk

"Those giant turkey drumsticks in old cartoons that characters would tear huge chunks out of. Those things looked amazing, turkey drumsticks in real life suck and are annoying to eat."

-- Ozwaldo

Slurp, Slurp, Slurp

"Every bowl of ramen on any anime, ever." -- Cat_xox

"Studio Ghibli eggs and bacon" -- DrManhattan_DDM

"Honestly, any food in anime. I swear to god half the budget no matter what the studio goes into making the food look absolutely delicious." -- Viridun

Finally, some highlighted the things that aren't quite so far-fetched, but still far enough away that it's nothing we'll be eating anytime soon.

That tease can be enough to make your mouth water.

What's In It??

"Butter beer" -- Damn_Dog_Inappropes

"came here to say this. i was pretty disappointed with the universal studio version which was over the top sweet. it was more of a butterscotch root beer. i imagine butter beer to be something more like butter and beer, which wouldn't be crazy sweet, but would have a very deep rich flavor" -- crazyskiingsloth

Slice of the Future

"The microwave pizzas in back to the future two" -- biggiemick91

"I've been fascinated with those for years! They just look so good!" -- skoros

As Sweet As They Had

"The Turkish Delight from Lion Witch & Wardrobe. The real ones I had weren't bad but nothing special." -- spoon_shaped_spoon

"Came here to say this. I know it's a real thing, but I always imagined that it must have been amazing to betray your siblings over." -- la_yes

"You're used to freely available too sweet sweets. For a WW2 era schoolkid, it would have represented all the sweets for an entire year." -- ResponsibleLimeade

Here's hoping you made it through the list without going into kitchen for some snack you didn't actually need.

When a movie rakes in a ton of cash at the box office, the studio that made it has only one thing on its mind: "How do we keep shaking this money tree?"

Unfortunately, that means they make sequels, sometimes sequels on sequels on sequels.

Oftentimes I like to do my best Ghostface impression and aggressively ask people what their favorite scary movies are. Because I personally have a lot! At the same time, I'm also terrified that at any point, I could end up getting my head punched off by Jason Vorhees (Part 8 of the series--best one IMO).

I hate hypocrites. They are the bane of my existence. All you have to do is stand behind your words. How hard is that? You said them. I especially get peeved when people bloviate on a topic and condemn and holler but then when it comes to them doing it... silence.

Redditor u/ErrForceOnes wanted to know about the moments people chose to curiously "pay no mind" by asking... What is a GIANT hypocrisy that no one seems to mind?
