Who doesn't love a theme party?

When you not only get to dress up in something completely over the top, but also get to bear witness to everyone else's zany outfits in-keeping with the party's theme.

Be it Regency era, glam rock, or fairy tale villains.

Or what if the challenge is just to be blatantly inappropriate?

A theme which got the imagination of Redditor StockD0ctorStockD0ctor running wild, resulting in their taking to Reddit to ask:

"You are going to a party. The theme is dress inappropriately. Who or what do you dress as?"


And not on your foot, one imagines...

"Nothing but a tube sock."- Sanguiniutron

Reverse Psychology

"Dress normally, because if the theme is to dress inappropriately, and you dress appropriately, technically you're the one being inappropriate for the occasion."- GoAwayImHereForMemes

"I've actually been in a completely opposite situation."

"Was invited to a art exhibition, came in well dressed. It was basically porn but the person I went with forgot to mention that."

"I felt very malplace standing around people wearing next to nothing."

"So I would probably do that again because what's more inappropriate than being appropriate at an inappropriate event?"- cccantyousee

"I mean, if dressing inappropriately is the appropriate attire, then dressing appropriately would be inappropriate for the party, thus, making it appropriate."

"Now that I think about it, it's an unsolvable paradox."

"You could never appropriately dress inappropriately."- MUNKIESS

It's all in the details

"A suit."

"With the pants cuffs rolled up, wearing tevas with gym socks."- BitPoet

And they say you can only wear it once...

"Bridal gown."- fromhelley

Depends on your surroundings...

"Imma wear a parka."

"In South Texas."

"In August."- Ahshalon_Tenisk

The question is, what aren't you wearing...

"Nothing I'd just show up in lingerie."- cloboehobo

Wrong on so many levels...

"A two sizes to small wrestling singlet, and crocs."- thirdtimer_2020

There's little more fun than facing the challenge of dressing to impress.

Or, in this instance, un-dressing to impress.

And if you are greeted by a round of shocked expressions, you know your choice of outfit was a success.

A truly stressful job can destroy your self-esteem and confidence. It's been said that people don't necessarily leave jobs, they leave management.

Indeed, bad management can leave you feeling unmoored and unsupported.

There has been a wider conversation about hostile work environments over the last couple of years now that the COVID-19 pandemic has afforded many people the opportunity to switch careers and/or call it quits with their awful jobs.

No job is worth your mental and physical health.

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

"Redditors who changed careers from a high paying but stressful job to a lower paying but low stress job, was it worth it, why or why not?"

People Share The Most Amazing Facts They Know About The Universe

There is so much we don't know about the universe.

So much, in fact, that everything there is to learn about the universe will probably never be discovered.

Mostly because the universe is constantly growing and evolving, leaving us with new things to learn about the universe literally every day.

Constantly filling our minds with uncertainty, sometimes fear, about the otherwise vast unknown.

All of this makes all facts we've discovered about the universe all the more fascinating, whether or not we have even the slightest interest in science.

Romantic relationships have evolved considerably over the course of time.

Today, more and more couples who are otherwise committed to one another, in marriage or in word, have "open" relationships, where they are permitted to see other people on the side.

Also, many people are open about being in polyamorous relationships, where they might be equally committed and loving to more than one person.

Which isn't to say, however, that monogamous relationships are a thing of the past.

As many people continue to commit, body and soul, to one person and one person only.

And should one half of that couple break that commitment, it could be the effective end of that relationship.

The mark of a good piece of fiction is when one feels as if they actually know the characters.

Be it a film, television series or novel, there are some beloved characters we wish were actually our friends in real life, or whom we feel as if we've actually known all our lives.

As a result, when one of these characters dies, we sometimes feel as if we've actually lost a loved one.

Sometimes finding ourselves in a state of literal grieving.
