As a kid, you can always rely on your dad to tell terrible jokes and yell at you when you touch the thermostat, but it turns out dads also make the best pillows.


Being a kid is exhausting. The whole world is new and every day you just want to run around and take in as much of it as you can.

But by the end of it all, you are wiped. Fortunately when it's time to crash dad's got you covered.

We may never know what makes dads the perfect napping spot but it seems almost everyone has shared that classic moment with their dad at one point, and somehow, they always manage to get a picture.


Lucky for us Twitter user @Qool_Runnings decided to send out a "calling all dads" asking other fathers to share all of their "passed out on dad" pics. Dads came out in force to answer the call and created one of the purest threads ever on Twitter.

The pics were almost too adorable for words.






While some dads shared the hilariously awkward way their kids like to get some shut-eye.





And others you could definitely tell which kids take after their dads, at least when it comes to napping.








Now we're just hoping the follow-up thread takes off, dads napping on kids.

Some years ago, I had to advise a college friend to stop chasing the girl he was interested in at the time. She'd already turned him down. Explicitly. At least two or three times.

He wouldn't take no for an answer and didn't see anything wrong with his behavior.

Perhaps he'd seen too many movies where the guy eventually breaks through the girl's defenses and essentially coerces her into going out with him?

Parents make mistakes. We want to believe that parents are doing there very best to raise their kids, but sometimes they do more harm than good.

Research into childhood trauma didn't actually begin until the 1970s, so we don't have as much knowledge about our mental health as adults as we might like.

However, a study that followed 1,420 from 1992 to 2015 found conclusive results about childhood trauma:

"'It is a myth to believe that childhood trauma is a rare experience that only affects few,' the researchers say."
"Rather, their population sample suggests, 'it is a normative experience—it affects the majority of children at some point.'"
"A surprising 60 percent of those in the study were exposed to at least one trauma by age 16. Over 30 percent were exposed to multiple traumatic events."

Not all of the things our parents do that were not so helpful technically classify as trauma, but it definitely has an effect on us as we get older.

On the outside, so many professions and careers look glamorous, financially enticing, and fun.

Often we sit back in our own lives and wallow in our dead-end jobs with that "wish I could do that for a living mentality!"

But if you look a little closer or, much like Dorothy Gale in OZ, just wait for a Toto to push the curtain back, you'll see that a lot more is going on behind the scenes.

And the shenanigans we don't see, make all that fun... evaporate.

So many careers and high power industries are built on a foundation of lies, backstabbing, and stress. And not in that fun "Dynasty" way.

That quiet, dead-end gig may not be so bad after all.

Redditor MethodicallyDeep wanted hear all the tea about certain careers, by asking:

What is a secret in your industry that should be talked about?
