Love can make us all do some stupid and ludicrous things. When we're in the throes of romance, whether it be a perfect relationship or a toxic disaster we all have those moments where we act afool. It's unfortunate when we can place the blame solely on ourselves because of poor judgement. When we look back it can be daunting to see the staggering amount of loss before it even got started just because we weren't thinking.

Redditor u/j__knight638 wanted everyone to fess up to so past deeds that were not some of life's finer moments by asking.... What is the one instance where you f**ked it up with a crush, that you still dwell on to this day?


You tell me....

I had a crush on this person for several years but never made a move.

One day we ran into one another in a cafe and after saying hi they looked straight into my eyes and said "hey, how come you and I have never gotten together?"

For some reason out of nervousness and surprise I just said "I dunno," grabbed my drink and left. To this day I don't know if they thought it was sarcasm or just gave up thinking it wasn't worth pursuing someone so brusque and oblivious as me. Salt-Pile

Hear no Evil... 

In junior high. Literally the only girl in the class that just acted nicely to people and always smiled, I had a huge crush on her for over a year. Toward the end of our last year in J.H. I passed her in the crowded hall after school, like i had 500 times before, and one of her friends goes "hey x wants to go out with you" and i literally pretended to not hear anything. she starts saying my name to get my attention but my back is turned. I keep acting like I didn't hear anything and walked into the crowd. 15 year old me was dumb enough that day, to fill 10,000 black holes with stupid.

The next year she had moved to a different district and i never saw her again. penny_eater

Shameless..... 

I actually got together with her, she was a bit more grown than me, and i was embarrassed about my Star Wars posters and other child stuff in my room. So i never invited her to my home, and she got that wrong and broke up. She thought i was embarrassed of her and didn't want my parents to get to know her. I regret everything. AlfredTButler

The Way of the Samurai.... 

Age 11. Birthday Party, Summer Crush and Pinata Time. She spun me around and put the blindfold on me. You can guess what happens next.

That Pinata was about to receive a Samurai worthy Strike from Heaven itself. And when the blindfold came off there was blood everywhere. I had struck her on the head. I was honestly traumatized. Nevermind her!

I forgot about it until 20 years later my brother brought it up. In my mind, it was HE who struck her in the head, not me. My mind had developed a reality where it did not accept I had done it and I had to ask other family members to confirm this, to make sure he wasn't just f**king with me. Labamba4you

But it's our history....

Accidentally sent him a screenshot of our conversation. Every time I think about it I want to die. 69creative_person69

I did this last summer. She was friends with my cousin and we had a great night out. I was talking to my brother about it the next day and he couldn't remember what she looked like (they've met before) and he doesn't have Facebook. So, of course, I sent her a screenshot of her own Facebook profile picture...

I want to jump out my office window just thinking about it. WHAT DID MY ANCESTORS DO TO BRING THIS SHAME UPON THEIR SEED!!! erlydecision

I'm not a tissue... 

Was hanging out in spring and I had a little bit of hay fever. At one point we just stared into each others eye and I sneezed all over her face like there was snot on her. She was grossed out but once I got all my snot off her she laughed about it she did get her revenge a few days later. daibz

Too Soon?

I confessed WAY too early :// I could tell he was into me but I think I got overconfident and confessed too early and weirded him out and he rejected me. We still good friends now tho so it's cool. I have a strict 10 date policy. Don't reveal the murders until the 7th date, don't reveal the lasagna-making elves in your basement till the 8th date, don't reveal the bodies under your floorboards until the 9th date, and only ask him if he wants to join the bodies under the floorboards on the 10th date. denatured_enzyme_

But I was tired! 

My first crush went to prom with me and late that night (or morning) when I was dropping her off, she kept asking if I wanted to go in and watch a movie and that her parents were away for the weekend. I kept telling her it was late but she kept insisting. Anyways I told her it was late and I was tired. I still cringe at that moment. Whenever I'm back home now and my old high school friends and I meet up, they still give me crap for it. frostyaznguy

The Hot Mess.... 

Crush invited himself over, we hit it off and talked for 5 hours straight. He then asked if he could sleep over.

My bedroom was literally so messy that I couldn't have anyone in. I was in the middle of moving a lot of stuff out of my place. Boxes on boxes everywhere, used clothes and random objects all over my bed.

So I said my room was too messy and booked him an Uber home.

I realize how this may have sounded like a fake excuse/that I wasn't interested. Hahaha tamagobb

Turn around bright eyes...

This was in high school. I sat behind him and had the feeling all day long he was gonna ask me out. Plus some of my female classmates told me they heard from their friends of friends of friends that he would in whatever period it was this incident happened in.

Anyway, he turned around when the bell rang and out of nervousness I blurted out "turn back the f**k around." ...and he did. And never turned back around...

I can laugh about it now but at the time, NOBODY asked me out. Not even for prom. He was a well liked guy so others sided with him and called me all sorts of names haha. luck008

Have you ever been reading a book, watching a movie, or even sitting down for a fantastical cartoon and began to salivate when the characters dig into some doozy of a made up food?

You're not alone.

Food is apparently fertile ground for creativity. Authors, movie directors, and animators all can't help but put a little extra time and effort into the process of making characters' tasty delights mouthwatering even for audiences on the other side of the screen.

Read on for a perfect mixture of nostalgia and hunger.

AllWhammyNoMorals asked, "What's a fictional food you've always wanted to try?"

Some people were all about the magical foods eaten in the magical places. They couldn't help but wish they could bite into something with fantastical properties and unearthly deliciousness.

Nutritious

"Enchanted golden apple" -- DabbingIsSo2015

"The Minecraft eating sounds make me hungry" -- FishingHobo

"Gotta love that health regeneration" -- r2celjazz

"Pretty sure those are based off the golden apples that grant immortality. Norse mythology I think?" -- Raven_of_Blades

Take Your Pick

"Nearly any food from Charlie and the Chocolate factory" -- CrimsonFox100

"Came here to say snozzberries!" -- Utah_Writer

"Everlasting Gobstoppers #1, but also when they're free to roam near the chocolate river and the entire environment is edible." -- devo9er

Peak Efficiency

"Lembas" -- Roxwords

"The one that fills you with just a bite? My fat a** would be making sandwiches with two lembas breads and putting bacon, avocado and cheese inside. Then probably go for some dessert afterwards. No wonder why those elves are all skinny, eating just one measly bite of this stuff." -- sushister

Some people got stuck on the foods they saw in the cartoons they watched growing up. The vibrant colors, the artistic sounds, and the exaggerated movements all come together to form some good-looking fake grub.

The One and Only

"Krabby patty 🍔" -- Cat_xox

"And a kelp shake" -- titsclitsntennerbits

"As a kid I always pretended burgers from McDonalds were Krabby Patties, heck from time to time I still do for the nostalgia of it all. Many of my friends did the same thing." -- Thisissuchadragtodo

Cheeeeeeeeese

"The pizza from an extremely goofy movie. The stringy cheese just looked magical lol" -- ES_Verified

"The pizza in the old TMNT cartoon as well." -- gate_of_steiner85

"Only bested by the pizza from All Dogs Go to Heaven." -- Purdaddy

Get a Big Old Chunk

"Those giant turkey drumsticks in old cartoons that characters would tear huge chunks out of. Those things looked amazing, turkey drumsticks in real life suck and are annoying to eat."

-- Ozwaldo

Slurp, Slurp, Slurp

"Every bowl of ramen on any anime, ever." -- Cat_xox

"Studio Ghibli eggs and bacon" -- DrManhattan_DDM

"Honestly, any food in anime. I swear to god half the budget no matter what the studio goes into making the food look absolutely delicious." -- Viridun

Finally, some highlighted the things that aren't quite so far-fetched, but still far enough away that it's nothing we'll be eating anytime soon.

That tease can be enough to make your mouth water.

What's In It??

"Butter beer" -- Damn_Dog_Inappropes

"came here to say this. i was pretty disappointed with the universal studio version which was over the top sweet. it was more of a butterscotch root beer. i imagine butter beer to be something more like butter and beer, which wouldn't be crazy sweet, but would have a very deep rich flavor" -- crazyskiingsloth

Slice of the Future

"The microwave pizzas in back to the future two" -- biggiemick91

"I've been fascinated with those for years! They just look so good!" -- skoros

As Sweet As They Had

"The Turkish Delight from Lion Witch & Wardrobe. The real ones I had weren't bad but nothing special." -- spoon_shaped_spoon

"Came here to say this. I know it's a real thing, but I always imagined that it must have been amazing to betray your siblings over." -- la_yes

"You're used to freely available too sweet sweets. For a WW2 era schoolkid, it would have represented all the sweets for an entire year." -- ResponsibleLimeade



Here's hoping you made it through the list without going into kitchen for some snack you didn't actually need.

When a movie rakes in a ton of cash at the box office, the studio that made it has only one thing on its mind: "How do we keep shaking this money tree?"

Unfortunately, that means they make sequels, sometimes sequels on sequels on sequels.

Oftentimes I like to do my best Ghostface impression and aggressively ask people what their favorite scary movies are. Because I personally have a lot! At the same time, I'm also terrified that at any point, I could end up getting my head punched off by Jason Vorhees (Part 8 of the series--best one IMO).

I hate hypocrites. They are the bane of my existence. All you have to do is stand behind your words. How hard is that? You said them. I especially get peeved when people bloviate on a topic and condemn and holler but then when it comes to them doing it... silence.

Redditor u/ErrForceOnes wanted to know about the moments people chose to curiously "pay no mind" by asking... What is a GIANT hypocrisy that no one seems to mind?
