Do you know a deep sleeper?


Some people are really good at sleeping. When they close their eyes for the night, nothing gets in the brain's way of recharging. Literally, nothing. Snoozing through the likes of natural disasters and loud emergencies can be dangerous...

When Redditor u/anarachelb asked, "Deep sleepers, what have you slept through?", very lucky people were able to look back with humor on shocking moments and loud sounds that didn't disturb their slumbers.

20. They missed a "polite" wake up call

"I (female) was staying the weekend at my friends house (male), we both had fallen asleep and I figured I'd wake him up in a polite manner (catch my drift). He rolled over in his sleep while my mouth was full, had no recollection when he woke up that it had even happened"

19. A crime in progress

"A car robbery that happened out side the bedroom window in the room I was in (not our car)"

18. Who could possibly sleep through that noise?

"Too many Amber alerts"

17. The earth shaking didn't bother them

"Earthquake as kid, woke up in my mom's lap. Kinda just woke up a little.Then I just yeeted back to slumber."

16. The house was falling apart

"I've slept through the ceiling falling down in my home. I was a kid when this happened, what I'm told is there were some air pockets between the actual ceiling and the plaster and after a year or so of the house being built the plaster felt in one of the rooms. My parents say they thought the house was falling apart because of the noise, and I just slept through that."

15. The biggest firework show

"A firework factory explosion."

14. An actual break in

"My housemate came back with a few friends yelling and screaming at the window. Apparently someone was breaking into the house and I was passed out. There were screws dropped on the outside from where he was unfastening the window locks. I had no idea until he came into my room yelling at me that I didn't stop it."

13. Hotels are so relaxing though...

"A fire truck arriving at our hotel in the middle of the night because of a faulty fire alarm."

12. The smoothie part though...

"My husband was going to stay at a friend's place for the night, but decided to come home instead last minute. I slept through him opening the front door, using his computer for a while and making a frickin fruit smoothie with a blender. I only woke up when he came into the room to go to bed himself"

11. Poor pup couldn't catch a break

"When I was younger I had a tiny closet in my room with a door that opened inward. The dog got in there after I'd fallen asleep and got locked inside and started barking loud. The neighbors heard it and came over to help free the dog. They used a hacksaw to cut a hole in the door panel and they got the dog out about two hours later."

10. Mother nature's most destructive creation

"A tornado. I woke up and my neighbor's roof was gone"

9. Even a fire alarm couldn't disturb them

Giphy

"A fire alarm. My parents thought I had died when they got out of the house and I wasn't there."

8. Poor grandma...

"My grandmother was staying at my house and one night, she got up to get some water, and fell and broke her hip. I slept through the ambulance arriving to pick her up."

7. This huge disaster 

"A house blowing up and then the bull dozers taking the rest down. This happened in the 80s in Philly, so it was row homes. A guy took himself hostage? He was threatening to blow himself up. He had the gas on and was holding a lighter. I guess they didnt think he would go thru with it because a kid in the house nextdoor was burried in the rubble. He was found alive a day or two later. They deemed him the miracle baby."

6. Another sleepy tornado survivor 

"I think the all-time champion was a guy in a motel near Columbus Ohio back in the '70's. A tornado went through the western suburbs, the police were going through the wreckage of the motel, and in what was left of a corner room that had two walls and the roof blown away, they found a guy in the bed. At first they thought he was dead, then they heard him snoring."

5. Giving birth is tiring

Giphy

"A nurse was stunned to find me sleeping while I was in labor. She woke me up to tell me so. Apparently me falling asleep triggered some alarm on one of the machines they had me hooked up to (my heart rate and pulse ox changed or something). I was a bit miffed, because it was like 4am, and I was very tired."

4. What a way to miss breakfast

"Multiple mortar attacks while deployed. Woke up one morning to get ready to go get chow and was confused why everyone was eating MREs...our dining area had been obliterated, maybe 200yds away from my billet"

3. This large impact on their house

"A car hit our house when I was fourteen. It happened at about 2:30am, and the cops estimated the driver (quite drunk) was doing more than 80mph through our subdivision at the time.

There was the impact, the damage to the house, shattering windows, screaming, shouts from the neighbors, staircase charges of my siblings, sirens, everything.

I would have slept through until morning if my sister hadn't woken me telling me I didn't want to miss this."

2. Shaken, not stirred

"The '94 Northridge earthquake, less than 15 miles from the epicenter. I was shaken, but not stirred."

People Explain Which Lessons Aren't Taught In History Class But Should Be

It's highly believed that it is important to learn history as a means to improve our future.

What is often overlooked is that what is taught in history class is going to be very different depending on where you went to school.

And this isn't just internationally, even different regions of the United states will likely have very different lessons on American history.

This frequently results in our learning fascinating, heartbreaking and horrifying historical facts which our middle or high school history teachers neglected to teach us.

Redditor Acherontia_atropos91 was curious to learn things people either wished they had learned, or believe they should have learned, in their school history class, leading them to ask:

What isn’t taught in history class but should be?

So apparently we are in the endemic phase of this nonsense.

We have light at the end of the tunnel.

So what now?

Where do we go from here?

Normal seems like an outdated word.

How do we get back to normal though?

Is it even possible?

What are reaching back to?

Life pre-Covid.

Those were the days.

If only we could bring them back.

Redditor hetravelingsong wanted to discuss our new normal in this hopeful "endemic" phase. So they asked:

"What’s something random you miss about pre-COVID times?"

What do you believe?

Is there a GOD in the sky?

Is he guiding us and helping us?

Life is really hard. Why is that is a big entity is up there loving us?

Atheists have taken a lot of heat for what feels like shunning GOD.

What if they've been right all along?

Maybe let's take a listen and see what they really think.

Redditor __Jacob______ wanted to hear from the people who don't really believe all that "God" stuff. They asked:

"Atheists, what do you believe in?"

The list of what irritates me is endless.

I mean... breathing too loud or dust can set me off.

So let's discuss.
