Chances are, you've been told to try new things ever since you were a little kid. I know I was.

Sometimes, certain activities or experiences seem crazy, and you don't even want to give them a chance.

This could be true of some things. For example, there is no reason to ingest tide pods.

Sometimes an activity or experience that seems crazy only seems that way because you haven't tried it yet.

I thought nothing good could come of mixing buttery popcorn with Swedish Fish, but now it's my favorite snack!

Redditor TheUnthinkableVids wanted to know about other things that seem crazy, but should be given a chance.

He asked:

"What’s a “don’t knock it till you try it” experience that you would weirdly recommend?"


Having Fun Doing You

"LARPing."

"It has a bad reputation of power tripping nerds deluding themselves in public with seemingly no self awareness, but give it a go."

"I found it was more like sparring with a stunt troupe. It was harder than it looked, and everyone was having fun doing their thing while ignoring the haters, which was pretty cool I must admit."

The Perfect Sauce

"Balsamic glaze on pizza."

– Advanced_Nerve_7602

"Have it on Vanilla ice cream. Amazing."

– henri915

"Basalmic on watermelon is refreshing!"

– spacemantrip

Aim High

"Climbing onto your roof"

– Responsible-Fold1755

"I like how most of the responses in this thread are "try psychedelics" or "go skydiving" or "see a therapist" but you're like, "have you ever been on your roof?""

"Gotta admit though, I've been on my roof and it's strangely satisfying. You get a vantage point to see something that you see everyday, just a little higher up."

Multiple Screens

"A lot of computer noobs think that they would never use more than one monitor, and they don't see the purpose behind it. Bruh. It's magical, trust me."

– Rogue_Like

"I could use a third tbh"

– halfcookies

"I was one of those computer noobs for the longest time. A second monitor changed my life. Then I eventually got a third.... And I can't lie if every now and then I didn't tell myself "a fourth monitor would be quite convenient in this situation....."

– furbit73

Cheese And Everything

"Fresh Mozzarella and honey"

– duskhelm2595

– accountability_bot

"Cheese and jam on toast"

– Fickle_Landscape6761

"Cream cheese and grape jelly sandwiches! (On toast)"

– itsstillmeagain

Pampering Is Always Good

"Pedicure for men."

– woodbarber

"My mom made me get one with her when I was a teenager. It rocked. Adult me gets a pedi at least once a month now. $25 to sit in a massage chair while someone cuts my toenails and massages my feet/legs? Yes please!"

– Sichael

The Magic of Salt

"Black pepper and salt on watermelon"

– curiousy_tea

"Salt on pineapple!"

– UnSuccessfulTree61

"A little sprinkle of salt in your coffee"

– Vanilla_Tom

"Salt in Fanta"

Uh...What?

"Draw a bath, turn the shower on, turn the lights off, prop up an umbrella, have a headlamp, a beverage and a good book."

"You look crazy, but try it, you’ll like it."

– ThinkIGotHacked

Be Your Own Best Friend

"Go to a restaurant on your own. Cinema on your own."

– Painting-Powerful

Jumping Out Of A Plane...Safely

"Skydiving. I did a tandem for my 60th I wish I had of done it when I was younger and learnt to do it solo."

– shazj57

"Tandem skydiving instructor here - I wish everyone would try it at least once, it isn't as bad as most people expect, and is much safer than the general public is willing to admit! Glad you had fun :)"

– JustAnotherDude1990

You don't even have to try something if you feel uncomfortable or unsafe, but sometimes pushing boundaries and stepping out of your comfort zone can be the best thing for you.

Give seemingly crazy things a chance, and who knows what could happen? You could end up finding a great new hobby... or at least something delicious to eat!

Reasons to be single #1... you avoid monkeypox, apparently.

#2... all your money is yours. And Uncle Sam's.

#3... more room in bed.

#4... the list is endless.

Not to be down on love, love is great.

But love doesn't have to be the full journey.

Feel-good dramas and hysterical comedies can leave an indelible impression on audiences and make them want to come back for multiple viewings.

The films with inspiring storylines, brilliant cinematography, or Oscar-worthy performances are the most memorable.

But there are films that have the opposite effect on moviegoers, making them wish they never saw them in the first place, despite critical acclaim in their respective genres.

There's nothing more unsettling than waking up in the middle of the night.

Particularly if what woke you up was a loud, unsettling creepy sound.

The only thing that could make the experience more nightmarish is opening your eyes and seeing something that makes you jump out of bed.

Most of the time, what ends up scaring the living daylights out of us is nothing more than a pile of laundry we forgot to put away or a cat's shadow, and find ourselves laughing about it weeks or even days later

Others however, haven't been so lucky, waking up to discover they were actually in legitimate danger.

People Break Down The Times A Bully Absolutely Went Too Far

Bullying seems to be a concept that has always been around. It comes in all forms, and in varying degrees.

Sometimes, the bullying can be mild and temporary. That doesn't make it okay, but it does make the bullying easier to deal with.

Other times, the bullying is harsh, and can even go too far. Sometimes, that can mean relentless teasing. Othertimes, it can mean that a bully took their torment to a new level, even proceeding into physical violence.

Whatever the case, when bullying goes too far, it sticks with you. Sometimes, you get revenge. Other times, you just deal with it until you can find a solution. Whichever method you choose, you will never forget it.
