We don't give a second thought about beautiful flowers on display. So innocuous. So simple. So...creepy?


When you really think about it, the concept of exhibiting something that once used to live – although not quite as dramatic as taxidermy – can be unsettling.

That was one of several observances strangers on the internet shared when Redditor ZzzSleep asked:

"What's creepier the more you think about it?"

Still Out There

"The number of people out there who intentionally killed a person or two who went under the radar and never got caught."

Just Passing Through

"The amount of living things separate from us that are inside our body."

CrystalHoland

Mind-Blowing

"The human brain and the numerous, incurable things that can go wrong with it for NO reason at all."

Marketing

"Advertisements where they pretend the company 'cares about you' or 'believes everyone deserves the perfect (insert product here).'"

For Example

"I love the new H&R Block commercial where they say they're on your side. It's their fault that we Americans have to do our taxes and not our government. It's a f'king business."

How Our Mind Works

"How only we will ever truly know our thoughts and feelings, interpretations of the world -visually, emotionally, mentally. No matter how much we try to describe it to someone else or how close you are to another human, its still just you in so many ways."

Appledarling

Left To Our Devices

"How my phone seems to know what I have thought and not spoken about ."

Vastness Of Space

"The unfathomable size of the universe, its extreme emptiness, and the unknown reason why anything exists at all."

DustMan8vD

Nearing The End

"Dying. We all live these lives and work really hard to get somewhere and all we do is just die. No way out of it. And we have no idea what happens."

After Blossoming

"Flowers. They are essentially plant genitals that we like to cut off and put on display."

Too Young?

"Beauty pageants for kids."

Fam. Weighted blankets.

If you (or your kids - I see you, exhausted parents) struggle to stay asleep at night, weighted blankets might be a game changer for you. We got one for our 1-year-old after a week of her waking up at 4AM for baby jam sessions.

Best $31.99 we have ever spent. Ever.

As kids, we spent about 8 hours every day in school for 10 months of each year. Not surprisingly, a few useless lessons made their way into the curriculum.

Well, maybe more than a few.

Kids say some seriously whacky stuff sometimes, it can be disturbing, especially when they tend to discuss people who are not there. When the imagination is heading into "The Sixth Sense" territory, it may be time for a visit to the therapist. Now almost all of us had imaginary friends at one point in life. It is a very normal, common part of childhood. But much like the real friends in corporeal form we make in life, sometimes certain relationships are toxic and not a good influence. And separation is called for.

Redditor u/xX_ENTROPY_Xx wanted to hear about people's children's besties that they haven't laid eyes on by asking..... What's the scariest story you heard a child tell about their "imaginary friend"?

Be careful what you wish for, you just may get it. That is one of the wisdoms of life that people are always throwing around. It can be especially true when meeting your idols, finding your dream job and searching down blood relatives you knew nothing about. The DNA discovery craze has been all the rage the past decade or so. Everyone is running around contacting family they never knew they had. That can be quite the Pandora's box of family secrets and scandal.The outcomes have been all over the place. Though one of the best led to the discovery of the Golden State killer so that's a win.

Redditor u/VideoFork wanted to know who would be willing to give up some salacious tea about their blood tie discoveries by asking..... People who have taken an ancestry DNA test and accidentally uncovered a family secret, what was it?
