"What is lame when you're young, but cool when you're older?" –– Plenty, believe it or not. This was today's burning question fired off by Redditor FiredUpRedHeadRock, who reminded us that there's no shame in growing up. Life is bound to get a bit easier when you're feeling more self assured!

To those of you concerned about being "lame" now: There's hope.


"Sitting around the table..."

Sitting around the table talking with friends. As a kid I never understood how my parents and their friends could just drink coffee and talk. Now, I get it.

"Man, now that I'm an adult..."

Home Depot. Man, now that I'm an adult, every time I go in I see stuff I want to buy. It's like grown up version of Toys R Us.

"Museums."

Museums. I used to hate being forced to go to museums. Now whenever I visit a new place the first thing I look for are art and history museums.

"Staying in..."

Staying in on a weekend night. Relaxing at home and watching a movie is now my perfect Friday night.

"Going for walks..."

Going for walks in nature. I love being among trees. As a kid I just wanted to play Kirby Superstar.

"Having dinner..."

Having dinner and hanging with your parents. I'd give my right arm to have, not only a home cooked meal, but to just hang with my parents.

"Boring..."

Boring summer days when your parents were at work and you had nothing to do. I used to feel all bummed out on those days.

Now, I live for the days where the house is clean, errands are done, and no one wants to hang out.

"Having fun..."

Having fun, even embarrassing yourself to do so, in public. I remember being really young, like 11, and refusing to have normal kid fun because I thought it would look silly. Which looks the exact opposite. Who cares what you look like.. have some fun before you die.

"I'll even take..."

Slippers. Love kicking off my shoes and putting those soft squishy things on my feet when I get home. I'll even take the trash out in 'em, I don't care.

"Hanging out..."

Hanging with parents. Used to hate it as a kid but when i got older I realized there's limited time for it and you'll definitely regret the moments you didn't take when they're gone.

It's another ordinary day in America.

So of course that means we've already had a mass shooting or two before brunch.

And aside from the mass shootings, the number of single gunshot wounds or deaths is too high to count.

So let's discuss the aftermath.

Let's hear from the people who have faced the barrel of a loaded gun, or were just a casualty going about their day.

What happens after the bullet lands?

***CAUTION - SENSITIVE MATERIAL AHEAD - TRIGGER WARNING***

Redditor notaninterestingacc wanted to hear from the people who have lived the nightmare. They asked:

"Gunshot survivors of Reddit - What does it feel like to get shot?"

It's never attractive to gloat.

Nor does superiority ever come off as a particularly attractive attribute.

But, consciously or not, some people speak or behave in a way that immediately suggests that they think they deserve to be treated differently, i.e better than others.

Or that they believe they simply are better than other people.

A recent Redditor was curious what sort of behavior struck other people as elitist or arrogant behavior by asking:

"What screams "I am entitled"?"

There's something about the woods that creeps me out. Listen here, people: I'm a city guy. The idea of getting lost out there freaks me out. No thank you. I wasn't made for that. The rest of you who like to go camping and stuff? You do you. I'll stick with my running water.

But maybe I've seen too many horror movies. After all, if I saw some creepy stuff in the woods I'd definitely run in the other direction. And so would you, right? Right?

People shared their best stories with us after Redditor shantics asked the online community,

"What have you seen in the woods that you can’t explain?"

We're all not geniuses.

Everybody has varying degrees of knowledge and brain power.

And that is ok.

Though some of us are really lacking in any sense and every once and awhile people like to sugarcoat that fact when they call us out.

"Bless your heart."

That's a big one in the South. Means... "I like you, but Lord are you missing marbles."
