Sometimes on our stressful lives it's nice to just sit back and think about all of the more wholesome things in life. Like the fact that just living with pets is enough to lower a person's blood pressure and stress levels. Or every single part or Fred Rogers' existence; seriously, the man was amazing and an inspiration to many, many children.


In that spirit, Reddit user u/PM_YOUR_HAPPY asked:

"What is the most wholesome fact you know?"

A bunch of doctors were subjected to an A-B test. The clinics they were working had two signs posted, on the doors leading to the examination rooms (immediately above the wash stations). One sign said "Wash your hands between examinations. You are less likely to pick up disease from patients." The other sign said "Wash your hands between examinations. You are less likely to transmit disease to patients."

The second sign boosted hand washing 57% greater than the first sign.

Canada and Denmark have "Fought" over tiny Hans Island, between Greenland and the Upper Reaches of what is now the Canadian Territory of Nunavut. It's technically where their out-to-sea borders overlap, and there is no official ruling anymore as to whose it is.

The "Fight" simply involves one side going over, changing the flag, collecting the bottle of alcohol set there by the previous party (Schnapps from the Danes, Whiskey from the Canadians), setting some of their own in its place and leaving.

This has been going on for decades.

What's on the menu? What are the specials? What's popular? What's your favorite item?Tell me everything.

I didn't have a lot of answers, due to the fact that I find American food pretty run of the mill. I'm going have to be schooled on what is considered extra yummy only in the states.

Although I must admit, the shoe definitely swaps feet when I travel. Tell me everything. The rest of the world is far more compelling with their menus.

Redditor u/Well_shi__-_- wanted to discuss what menu items we all need to discuss by asking:

What common foods in your country are considered delicacies by foreigners?

Standards for dating people are definitely very varied, because we as people are varied, and we as people are flawed. Little things might get to us from the get go, causing us to be very very picky about who exactly we let through a couple rounds of dating.

There's nothing funny about having an employee show their true colors after you've already hired them. Upon hiring, they seemed completely normal, pleasant, like they would be a good worker. Then as they get the lay of the land, they show that they actually have a different personality when the manager isn't around to see.
