Stranded 100 miles from where they needed to be, passengers on a United Airlines flight might have anticipated an aggravating journey home.

But the unexpected company of actor Keanu Reeves turned their road trip into a most excellent adventure.


Keanu Reeves might be the greatest argument in favor of human cloning. This man needs to be preserved for future generations.

On screen, Reeves might be your average international superstar, but off-screen he seems to be anything but. While most know the 54-year-old actor for his body of work, the legends surrounding real life encounters with the John Wick star are slowly outgrowing his Hollywood fame.

The latest involves a group of stranded airline passengers traveling from San Francisco to Burbank, California. When their United Airlines flight was diverted to Bakersfield for an emergency landing passengers were left stranded 100 miles from their destination.

Amidst the group of grounded travelers was Reeves, who, like everyone else, was now stuck in an empty Bakersfield airport looking for a way to get home.

But instead of being bothered by the delay or arranging private transport home, Reeves decided to make the most out of the situation and lead his fellow passengers on an epic road trip.

Even though it was Keanu, the story might have been too incredible to believe on it's own.

Fortunately fans were there to document the entire adventure.


When the plane was grounded, passengers found themselves in an empty Bakersfield airport 100 miles from Burbank.

So Reeves stepped up, talking with the airline and letting others now what was going on with their luggage and travel arrangements.


Many opted for a courtesy bus offered by the airline to take them on the last leg of the trip.

As everyone waited for the bus Keanu offered to take pictures with fans.





During the bus ride back to Burbank, Keanu entertained his travel companions with facts about Bakersfield.

He then played music from local artists through Youtube on his phone.



At the end of their journey, Keanu said goodbye to his travel partners, saying it was a "pleasure to meet you."

Then this hero walked off alone to get some food at a Carl's Jr (insert sunset here).


The moral of the story?

If you are going to get stuck on a bus with anyone, make damn sure sure it's Keanu Reeves.





Had it been any other celebrity the implausible adventure might have been too wild to believe.

But the legends of Keanu's down-to-earth kindness and approachability seem to get bigger every year.





Forget about action heroes!

For his next movie, Keanu should be starring as himself!

And if you're in the mood for another excellent adventure with Keanu Reeves, you're in luck. Reeves and his co-star Alex Winters announced a sequel to the film that made Reeves a household name is in the works. The next Bill and Ted installment is set to debut in 2020!

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.
