When it comes to exploding rats, Russians infiltrating a suburban mall and a psychokinetic girl fending off otherworldly monsters, Stranger Things is never in short supply of unusual phenomena.

But you know what?

There are no stranger things than being on the internet.


Fans of Netflix's Sci-Fi hit that takes place in the 1980s are getting their acid-washed jeans and scrunchies in a bunch over a jaw-dropping phenomenon that is weirder than the Upside-Down.

The unlikely bromance between Dustin and Steve – portrayed by Gaten Matarazzo and Joe Keery, respectively – has become what many viewers regarded as a highlight from season two.
Now one amazing observation regarding those two is becoming a huge trending moment.

Twitter user Trevor White uncovered old photos and pointed out that a younger David Harbour – who plays the chief of police Jim Hopper from the show – looks just like Steve, while an adolescent Patton Oswalt looks exactly like Dustin.

Harbour, 44, and Oswalt, 50, are friends in real life.

And based on the juxtaposed photos above, the younger gentlemen perfectly rocked their 80s coifs just like the characters they are being compared to.

So far, Oswalt responded to the viral madness.

Twitter is eating this up like a hot dog on a stick.








Fans have but one request of Harbour and Oswalt.



Eleven has only this to say.

There's only one way to recover from this Stranger Things mania: gorging on the USS Butterscotch from Scoops Ahoy from the Starcourt Mall.

See you there!

You can get season 1 & 2 of Stranger Things in retro packaging designed to look like VHS tapes here.

If you don't have any experience with construction, it can be pretty interesting to watch those reality HGTV shows (I know I'm addicted at this point). Some of the best episodes can be the one's where they open up the walls to find the builder didn't do anything right, causing a huge blow to the budget. The drama!

As someone who doesn't know much about building, and is dreaming of homeownership, Redditor Vast_Recognition_682 asked a question I wish I had thought of first.

Unless you've been a member of the armed forces, you may only know drill sergeants as uncompassionate leaders who yell at privates all the time.

Years ago I had a classmate who was a total daredevil... so much so that he would often injure himself. He once drove a bike in the direction of oncoming traffic, just for the hell of it. He got out of that episode unscathed––luckily. By contrast, I prefer keeping all my limbs, and still have them all. I wonder where he is now. Hopefully not too banged up. I did do some stuff unwittingly––like the time I stuck a fork into an electrical socket. I thankfully wasn't shocked too much. I was young and naive.

People told us all about the dangerous things they did when they were younger after Redditor Not-an-Ocelot asked the online community,

"What's the most dangerous thing you did as a kid without realizing?"
