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."

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 ."

Adults Explain Which Things Every Teenager Should Know

We often look back on our teenage years with mixed emotions.

Our final years where we could enjoy our youth, and live largely without responsibility and just enjoy being a child and all that came with it.

Of course, we might also look back on things we did as teenagers which we are less than proud of today.

Or things we wish someone had told us, so that we may have avoided falling into those unhappy situations.

We all pretended to be sick at least once when we were children to get out of going to school to avoid a test, game, or assembly we'd been dreading.

Some people still might not have given up the habit of feigning illness, as a means of avoiding work or other occasions that they are less than eager to attend.

Sometimes, simply telling people that you're "sick" is all the information you need to share to get out of it.

Whether or not more concrete proof is needed, others might go a step further in faking their ailment, be it a cold or fever, and often pull off fairly convincing performances.

Sometimes even fooling a doctor.

Every kid has their own strengths and talents. However, in school, some of us are singled out as being ‘gifted.’

This could mean a variety of things, from getting exceptionally good grades to having a unique way of thinking or understanding topics that aren’t seen in other students.

Often, when a student is labeled “gifted,” it is assumed they will be successful in later life.

However, Reddit has proven that this is not always the case.

Sometimes gifted students are successful but to a normal degree. They have the same careers and achievements as students who weren't labeled gifted. Other times, these students are not successful at all and being labeled “gifted” ended up damaging.

Non-disclosure agreements, or NDAs, are legally binding contracts that establish confidential relationships.

For most people, it’s not a big deal. NDAs are often signed at the start or end of an employment opportunity or during a sale of a product or technology you own. They mainly protect creative, business, or intellectual properties.

However, another function of NDAs is to guarantee silence on more high profile or nefarious events. For example, Stormy Daniels was asked to sign an NDA so that events that transpired between her and former president, Donald Trump, would be kept a secret. In most cases like these, the person who signs the NDA also gets a sum of money for their cooperation.

In these cases, the reason for the NDA is usually wild.
