We all have some innocent secrets we keep from our parents. Twitter user Sydney Allenn's is that, back in June, she had her nipples pierced as a birthday gift from her sister. After a trip to the doctor, however, an unexpected chest X-ray awkwardly outed Sydney in front of her mother.


Sydney wasn't expecting her mom to pick up on her new bling:

Since I don't usually have my shirt off I thought it would be a very easy secret to keep.

Apparently, Sydney and the doctor found the situation a lot funnier than her mom:

My mom [sic] saw my piercings as soon as the X-ray popped up and the doctor and I started laughing hysterically.

Sydney's mother had only this to say:

We'll discuss it later.

Twitter users wanted to make sure Sydney was ok.

Twitter had a lot of questions. Did getting the piercings hurt?

It turns out Sydney wasn't the first person to find herself in this situation.


One Twitter user tried his luck...to no avail.


There were also some quick science discussions to be had!


So remember this if you're going to the doctor's office with your mother anytime soon: take out those nipple piercings!

Sometimes I think back to a teacher I had when I was a kid who demanded to know whether any of us were "raised in a barn" in response to crappy behavior. Namely littering. She hated littering. Can you blame her? It's a horrible habit and some people do it with no sense of shame. She dedicated much of her time to telling students to pick up after themselves and dispose of things properly. For that, I'm thankful.

But why didn't anyone else get the memo? The trash I see on the streets is obscene.

People had lots of thoughts to share after Redditor SneakyStriedker876 asked the online community,

"What seemingly uncivilized thing is commonplace in society?"

I love presents. I try to hide my enthusiasm, and I do my best to appease the greater public by saying "it's the thought that counts." But that is a WHOLE lie. I don't just love gifts, I love great gifts. And if you go rogue from my lists, please keep a receipt. It's just plain rude to divert from what the recipient has requested.

This thought process has emerged from experience. I have received some trash presents over the years and now I'm too old to pretend you just went crazy while shopping. Like... "do you even know me?!"

Redditor u/sulemannkhann wanted to hear all about the presents some of us have received that we prayed, came with a receipt, by asking:

What's the worst birthday gift you ever got?

I'm still on the fence about this whole extraterrestrial situation. I need more proof. Now I'm not naive enough to think that in this vast, endless universe only the human race exists. I just need proof, tangible, solid, didn't see it from my trailer through beer goggles proof.

I also need proof about the afterlife, another out there topic. Truth be told, I've never been that into this whole conversation. I've got enough daily problems on this planet, let alone worrying about making Will Smith's biggest hits into documentaries and not just popcorn/comedy space farce.

But let's compare thoughts...

Redditor u/ValencikHannibal197 wanted to discuss life beyond this planet, what do we really think? They asked:

What's the best theory on UFOs or aliens you've ever heard??
