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."

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."

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."

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."

People Break Down Which Foods No Longer Taste As Good As They Used To

Like lots of kids growing up, I did love my candy and my sugar. Truth be told, I wasn't allowed to have as much as I would have liked, but that doesn't mean I didn't sneak some candies whenever I had the opportunity.

Now that I'm older though? My taste buds just aren't the same.

I can't stomach too much of anything super sweet and the idea of chowing down on candy and chocolate the way I see some kids do pretty much grosses me out.

My body thanks me, though!

"What food doesn't taste as good as it used to?"

It's really no secret that most children think their parents are super uncool.

Because of course they are.

Parents didn't have lives or dreams of their own before they had children, right? How could they possibly ever have been fun?

That's sarcasm, by the way. Most people grow out of this attitude, and it usually disappears by the time a kid gets through their teenage years, when pretty much anything their parents do turns their faces red with embarrassment.

But suppose you, the parents, wanted to embarrass your kids anyway, say by reviving a slang term or two?

People shared their thoughts after Redditor the-tinman asked the online community,

"What are some slang terms a 50 year old dad can say to his daughter to embarrass her?"

It's always sad when people don't have anything better to do than throw insults at people.

And yet it happens far too often, between people who see each other on a fairly regular basis, as well as complete strangers.

It's always a good idea to avoid sinking to their level when this happens, and just ignore them and walk on by.

That being said, there is very little more satisfying than coming back at them with just the right choice of words, and leaving them in stunned silence.

Being diagnosed with cancer is news no one ever wants to hear.

For some people, the diagnosis might come as a surprise, with no signs or warnings whatsoever.

Others, however might have detected some irregularities, or suffered from symptoms which led them to believe something wasn't quite right, leading them to run to a doctor.

Only to have their worst fears realized.
