If someone knows that an upcoming meal is to be their last, the specific food choices would appear to be the least of their problems.

Execution, the final days of a dreadful illness, or a psychic understanding of catastrophe in the making would likely be involved.

And yet, countless people on the internet thoroughly enjoyed discussing what they'd like to eat for their last meal in a recent Reddit thread.

Some were dedications to home-cooking and fond memories. Some showed commitment to out and out decadence. And others were sneaky ways to cheat death.

MunchkinsOG asked, "What would your last meal be and why?"

There's something about seeing a person litter that drives me up the wall. I remember being younger and being explicitly told to hold on to my trash and not just throw it in the street.

As a kid, I distinctly remember being made fun of for not just throwing the bag of chips I'd just eaten or an empty soda bottle into the gutter.

I can't imagine doing that. Why?! We truly treat this planet as if we have somewhere else to go. And yes, it says a lot about people who do that.

Turns out I'm not the only one with strongly held opinions. People shared their thoughts after Redditor Acrobatic_Western_67 asked the online community,

"What's something that makes you instantly dislike someone?"

The world has changed significantly in the last twenty years. Back in the day, you could just step out of the house and be gone all day and no one could contact you unless they were back home or used a payphone.

Nowadays, people expect us to be connected all the time, which is super frustrating in its own way. But it's hard to imagine the world as it was before, right? And it's pretty wild that we just accepted it for so long, that is until technology advanced enough!

Society has changed... for better or worse. People shared their observations after Redditor Silkhide asked the online community,

"What was the most f**ked up thing that was generally accepted twenty years ago?"

Is it ever okay to keep a secret from your parents?

It's been said that what people don't know won't hurt them, and that can certainly depend on the circumstances. But some secrets aren't all sad, dark, and depressing. Some are quite wholesome, believe it or not!

And sometimes your parent might be in on the secret. That's right. One parent.

People were keen to share their experiences after Redditor TheCripdalorian asked the online community,

"What’s one secret you and a parent have kept from the other parental figure?"
