There is always a way to get back at life. Though just because we all deserve some personal karmic justice from time to time, doesn't mean we should always go the devious route to get it. That will just continue the besmirchment of our character. However if you're really feeling a need to to get one over in a peaceful way opportunities will always arise.

Redditor u/NotAPoliceOfficer68 wanted to know how others have ways to avenge themselves in life without going to jail by asking.... What is completely legal, but still a d**k move?


Lights Out!

Giphy

Turning the light out in a public bathroom while people are in the stalls. Scamperillium

I worked in an office with an auto turn off light and the motion detector couldn't reach into the stalls. If you took longer that 5 min to poop it was in the dark. squishles

The Naughty Shoppers! 

Taking something out of someone's shopping cart. akoriousthing

My wife once had her entire shopping cart stolen. She picked up an item and turned around and the entire cart was gone. Why? Just why? My wife was still in the store and hadn't paid for anything yet. She got an empty basket and shopped all over again. DoubleEagle25

YOU! 

Eating everything in the bag except the last one so YOU don't have to throw it out. KlutzyAir

Using all but the last ice cube in the tray so you don't have to fill it.

"Mom likes filling the trays" is bull, and you know it, so knock that crap off boys (my kids). Tigergirl1975

No Space for You! 

Stealing a parking space someone else was waiting for. dawgittydog

Once I saw an empty spot and turned my signal on. Some douche came around the corner just as I was turning into the space and he got all pissed off at me. Excuse me that I saw it first and I had my signal on. No reason to be a d**k. kittycatdude

Guilty as Charged!

Giphy

Also when a new cashier opens up their register and says "I can take the next person in line." And then some oaf way back in the queue scurries over there like the rat they are! ericasin

Speak Up! 

Listening to music without headphones in public transportation. MissingNerd

They talk loudly and have the speaker so loud you clearly hear their conversation several seats away, but then get pissed when you try to join the conversation. Nyxalith

Imma rest here! 

Sit in a parking spot and just tap your brakes every once in a while so people trying to park think you're leaving, then just lay back and watch their reaction. Langhof

Dirty Business....

Hoarding as many patents as you can with no plans to use any of them. Then suing companies for patent infringement. bobtheflob

Companies could do something about this, but don't because it often costs less to pay than fight in court, and also these companies hold a lot of patents of their own, and don't want to create any legal precedent that will work against them in the future. So they see this as "the cost of doing business." DrHem

No Name.

Being the one person in a group project that doesn't contribute anything and still putting your name on it at the end. -eDgAR-

I'd actually prefer that than the person who half-a**es it so badly that it pulls your grade down. I'd rather just do the whole damned thing myself so I know it's done right. eddyathome

Omission is Sin.

Giphy

To intentionally mislead people by taking something out of context or omitting some relevant information/facts. fromRonnie

Still a crime when you're under oath. Lies of omission are the most commonly prosecuted type of perjury. notveryoriginalname2

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?

The past year brought about much anxiety and it's been a challenge to find the light in what has felt like perpetual darkness.

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.
