The world is a lot bigger than any of us realize. 7 billion people is a lot and, unfortunately, we'll never have the time or opportunity to meet all of them. Fortunately, for us, sometimes we gain an insight into someone's life, a quick glance into their soul.
And sometimes we love what we see so much we share it on the internet.
Reddit user, u/Wide_Stop, wanted to know who we should never forget either when they asked:
Let's Start Off Strong
Trucker that pooped in a burger king sink 'cause you don't forget something like that.
Your #1 memory is also a #2 memory.
Don't Jack My Fries, BroGiphy
I once worked at a tackle shop and one day I ordered a plate of fries for lunch from the restaurant next door.
20 Minutes later and I've just about finished my fries and a customer needs help with one of the rods. I put my plate down on the counter and help the customer. I come back to the counter and there's overweight guy looking to be in his 40s who's just eating my fries. I give him this look as if to say, "bro, Wtf". And he dead-ss looks me in the eyes after eating the last fry and says, "could use a little salt".
That's Some Real Confidence, Right There
Random guy on the buss eating a cucumber out of a bag.
His presence was too powerfull
A Kiss To Start It All Over Again
NYE 2017, I'm in a bar and the countdown to 2018 begins. I'm with a group of my friends and the countdown just ended as everyone screams "HAPPY NEW YEAR!" . I lock eyes with this handsome stranger, and both lean towards each other and kiss. That's it. Never got his number, never saw him again. Just a spontaneous kiss with a handsome stranger.
Helping To Shut You Up
Just a little backstory Several years ago my and my buddy got stranded in California because one of the cars we group road tripped with ditched us to go up to washing. Mind you were from Colorado. Completely broke our buddies mom bought us train tickets back back home. It's was a 3 day train ride five or take at grilling pace of like max 30 miles an hour. We had no money for food and by the 3rd day we were at each others throats out of hunger.
The guy in from of us must have heard us complaining and bought us a little 6 inch sub sandwich to share. Probably to shut us up lol I'll never forget him. Also on that same train ride we asked to bum a smoke from a stranger at a rest stop and when we got back on the train he tossed us a whole pack of cigarettes. He was going all the way to to Tennessee I'll never forget him either. The train ride sucked but on a lighter not people were really nice and seeing the country on a train is a memory I'll never forget.
Random Kindness On A Ferris Wheel
I was 7 and was on vacation with my family. There was a carnival going on at that time with a giant wheel present there. I'd never been on one so decided to go ahead and give it a shot. I seemed pretty confident, but as soon as I took my seat, for some reason I was absolutely terrified. A couple of strangers sat next to me as there was still space to accommodate them.
Once the ride began, I began shivering nervously, and couldn't get myself to look out through the cabin I was in. Then I felt a comforting hand over my shoulders. I looked around and it was a girl probably 10 years older than me at the time. She noticed me vigorously trembling in fear, and started having a casual conversation taking my mind away from it all. As the speed started increasing every round, she held me hand tightly and in no time, the ride was complete. I didn't even get to know her name. That was the last time I saw her. I don't even remember her face now. But I'll never forget that moment.
Maybe You Didn't KNOW You Were Sad?
Homeless dude walking off the bus had his pants sagging down so much you could see his tighty whiteys. I was on the way home from the cinema with my gf. He takes a look down at me, hits my knee with a plastic spoon to get my attention, and says 'cheer up'. The funny thing is I was doing fine.
Rednecks With The Save
I was crossing the crowsnest pass in the Rockies, doing yet another crazy move with my mom. We were driving in an old station wagon loaded with our sh-t, and I was a kid (maybe 13). The car overheated trying to go up the hill and we pulled over, billowing steam. My mom was trying to flag down traffic but nobody was stopping for about 20 minutes. Then a beat up old ford came up the hill and pulled over and two redneck-looking dudes hopped out. A guy with no front teeth popped our hot radiator with a screwdriver (he dodged the cloud of steam) and then they refilled the tank and also clamped a hose back on. He kept calling his truck 'flyjuice' and said he'd stay just ahead of us and watch that we made it over the pass. Both of them sounded like American hillbillies that had gotten lost too far north (this was in bc, Canada).
I still remember those rednecks saving us. They didn't ask for sh-t, either, and they left after we made it over the pass.
The Happiest Place On Earth...?
A mom at Disney World angrily yelling at her son to "Just shut up and have fun!!" after he said he was getting kinda tired.
[The] kid was like 6
I'm on a cruise. I'm washing my hands in a bathroom and this large Andy Reid-lookin' dude with a thick Pittsburgh accent comes out of the stall and says to me, "If you put your left hand and right hand under two different soap dispensers, you get double the soap!"
And I'm like, "Yeah."
Random Acts Of Kindness
I was playing laser tag one time and I accidentally tripped and twisted my ankle. It hurt so bad that I struggled to get up. A guy who was playing laser tag with me saw me and asked if I was ok. I told him what happened and he helped me up and out of the laser tag arena and into the main lobby. He even told an employee what happened and the employee got me an ice pack for my ankle. I still remember that stranger because it was such a nice thing he did for me.
Random hungover/drunk Scotsman approached me and my mother one day and asked
"Excuse me, where can I find a phone charger? I went out in Glasgow last night and woke up in Sheffield"
To which my mother replied "this is Lincoln"
He looked a little worried, then walked off saying "aye, it's been a long day"
It was 10am, he was 270 miles from home, and over 50 miles from where he woke up. I will forever remember this hero.
...The Happiest Place On Earth.
Oh god this reminds me of another horrible person in Disney.
So we were on the Carousel of progress. It's a ride that's more like a show, and the whole audience seating area rotates. You aren't supposed to stand during the show because it moves.
There was a baby in the front row. Had to be about a year old, with a light up toy (the ones that spin). Well this little boy was playing with the toy the ENTIRE show. It was a little annoying, but I saw the mom had attempted to take the toy away earlier and the child started crying. And since she couldn't take the child out because of the moving floor, she decided the toy was the least distracting for everyone else. Personally, I'd rather have a little light than a baby crying in a show. It wasn't that bad. Whatever. It's a baby in Disney world.
Well, this adult man behind me stands up halfway through the show, and screams at this baby and mom. "SHUT THE F-CKING TOY OFF." In a room. Full of small children. On a ride. In Walt Disney World.
I feel bad for that dude's children.
R.A.K. (Random Acts of Kindness)
Background: I've struggled with my weight since I was a teenager. My hormones worked crazy fast at growing me up. In the 7th grade, I could almost pass for a 17 year old. I was tall and I had filled out early. I was relentlessly teased, ridiculed, and bullied about being fat (which I was actually not). At any rate, I started to eat my feelings (self-fulfilling prophecies much?) and did start gaining weight. Before I had my weight loss surgery, I weighed 365 lbs. I also suffer heavily from Body Dysmorphia and BPD. I have never thought of myself as pretty or beautiful.
Story: A short time after my son was born, I went shopping with my ex husband (we were still married at the time) to buy some clothes at Lane Bryant. I was probably around 300 lbs at this time. I just remember looking at a top, and the voice of a woman caught my attention. She said, "Excuse me, sir." She was in a motorized scooter, so my husband made to move himself and our stroller out of the way, thinking he was blocking her path and even apologized for being in her way. I turned to witness the exchange, and this caricature of a wild-haired older woman wearing red-rimmed glasses was reaching up to touch my husband's elbow. She smiled up at him and said, "I just want you to know that your wife is absolutely beautiful. You're very lucky!" She turned and leveled a smile at me and I walked over to stoop and give her a hug to thank her. We exchanged pleasantries and she turned and went about her day after wishing us a nice day.
That woman, for no reason whatsoever, felt the need to point out something I was more or less ignorant of. And she didn't say it to me, she told my husband. I dunno, it just always really stuck with me.
Stepping In For The Save
A customer at work a few years ago! I was 19 and it was around 11pm on a close shift when I cut myself very badly on a deli slicer. A lady walked up to buy something and there I was freaking out and bleeding everywhere... Turns out she was a nurse, and she dropped everything to come behind the counter to patch me up. She was so lovely, not only did she help me, but she also made a point to the company that there should be a qualified first aider on at all times. Thanks to her they did just that!
A Peak Into The Soul's Window
I was 36 hours away from leaving a very toxic relationship forever, and I was picking up a few items at the local convenience store near my house.
A woman whom I've *never* seen before in my life walked in, looked at me, and it was like she stared into my soul. English was her second language, and she was visibly intoxicated.
She walks up to me and gets pretty close to my face, then asked me, "Are you okay?" I said yes, and went about my business. She gently grabbed my wrist and looked into my eyes a second time, and suddenly appeared quite sober. She said, "I'm serious. I see you. You're not okay. You must go. You know this."
I played it off and thanked her for her concern, and let her know that everything was fine. She kept trying to give me her phone number, but the shopkeeper waved her off. I found out later that night that she's a domestic violence advocate/lawyer.
How she "knew" ... I'll never know. What made this even more complex and weird is that my soon-to-be-ex was standing within earshot, and I had to be very careful/play stupid in case he figured out that I really was planning to leave. Thankfully, he was talking with someone else and didn't overhear what she said.
We just played her off as a drunk/crazy woman, but that wasn't the case at all.
I was on a plane and out of the country the next morning.
Singing For The World's Enjoyment
I used to work a 24 x 7 Network Operations Center. I had a midnight-noon shift. It was 5am, and I was in a toilet stall in our building, and there was a guy humming to himself in his stall. Imagine a deep, booming, baritone voice echoing everywhere because there were a lot of stalls.
"Durrr der dum... da dum... da duh dum da...."
But every once in a while, he'd have to strain.
"Durr dum deh deh de-HNNNGGGGGRRRRRrum... dum dah dee, doo dum..."
And sometimes, he's sigh contentedly after a strain, like an impromptu jazz moment.
"Durr dum doo de-HNNNGGGGGRRRRR-- aaahhhhh... ... dum dah dee, doo dum..."
It's been like, 21 years, and I never forgot that moment.
And Now, We All Can Use It TooGiphy
The old man using the urinal next to mine in a Denny's bathroom and said to me, "Ahhhhh. It makes the bladder gladder."
My SO and I still use that phrase to this day.
We've all said something stupid, let's not lie to ourselves.
It's okay to say something stupid. It showcases the real person on the inside, that we're all flawed, imperfect, and made of cooky combinations of words that don't necessarily line up to make sense. Sometimes we're nervous in a situation, other times we're just hitting 'Quick Reply' in our brains and what comes out doens't work, but whatever the reason, you for sure are going to remember it, late at night, for the rest of your life.
What is the stupidest thing that ever came out of your mouth?
You may not have to change your home address because of these moments, but you should probably reconsider how many public outings you go to afterwards.
Should Probably Never Shop At That Store Again
"When the cashier said "Have a nice day", and I replied with "No, thanks".
"Background: I wasnt thinking straight that day, and thought they said "Do you want a bag"
That's. How. Twins. Work?
"Her: the twins are 3 years old"
"Me: Both of them?"
"Oh no this unearthed a memory i had buried from kindergarten lmao"
"We had a set of twins in our classroom and once on their birthday party I said "your brother got such a cool party, i hope yours is nice like this too" to one of them and he was like "yeah, this one"
"4 year old me was not a very bright kid"
That's. How. Death. Works...
"Watching the documentary 'The Last Dance' when a Kobe interview pops up -"
"Me: "Wow, they must have filmed this before Kobe died."
"My wife: "Yeah, obviously…."
The cringe comes out of nowhere, and you're not even sure how you were able to ask something so incredibly stupid, but here you are. Lounging in the stupid air.
You Should Have Asked What "Nothing" Tastes Like Next
"In my head I was wondering what one pound of water would look like in terms of volume. What I said out loud however was "How much does a pound of water weigh?"
Keep Up With Me
"A couple of months ago, I got up and drove to work as usual. Later, my girlfriend texted me from home to ask me if she had left her sunglasses in my car. I told her I wasn't sure, but she could grab my spare key and go check."
"In my car."
"Which I had driven to work."
Black Is White, White Is Black
"I don't understand why people place bets on who wins, why not just place bets on who loses?"
"Yeah took me a minute to register what I said..."
And then there's these stories, where the person is probably better off cutting off any human contact henceforth going forward. These are rough to get through, folks.
Should Probably Have A Chat With HR After This
"I was about 4 months into my current job, feeling confident being fresh off the contract-to-hire period, now moved into a coveted full time role. While walking back to my office from the morning kanban I was stopped by my boss, head peeking out of the office:"
"Boss: "Hey TheMediator, do you have a sec?"
"Me: "For you, I've got lots of secs!"
"Boss: wide-eyes, mouth dropped"
"If you're curious why this was incredibly stupid/embarrassing, try saying the phrase "lots of secs" out loud. Preferably, not to your boss though."
You Don't Need College Anymore. Go Home. Bury Your Head In The Sand.
"In my freshman year of college I was dorming next door to a couple cute girls. About a week into the first semester one girl walked from the coed showers to her dorm room in her towel still wet. We were both unlocking our doors to get in our rooms when she looks at me and says…"
"I know I look stunning…(sarcastically)"
"To which I replied, "don't flatter yourself."
"I had to slid a note under her door explaining I was tongue tied as she was beautiful and I meant to say "don't be hard on yourself, you look great." (Or something to that nature). We became good friends."
It's In The Descriptor?
"Chatting to a homeless guy on the street and he told me he was feeling unwell. I told him he should be at home, resting."
"It's been 20 years and the memory of it still brings me out in a cold sweat."
Oh Good Lord...
"Asked my friend how his mom was doing at his moms funeral."
"Jesus Christ this is the worst one on this thread. What was his response?"
"He looked at me and then the casket and kind of smirked. I awkwardly started to try and explain and just said "I'm an idiot. You know I love you. Talk to you in a bit." He makes fun of me now and I can't stop laughing. It's a positive painful memory."
Own up to your mistakes. You'll garner more respect by acknowledging the awkward things you say, however, it's perfectly fine to laugh about it in the moment. That's probably the easiest way to escape the deep, deep shame.
The advice "fake it til you make it," though often said with at least a hint of sarcasm, does carry quite a bit of wisdom.
By simply putting one foot in front of the other, weathering the chaos of not knowing what's happening as you learn as fast as possible, we can find ourselves further than we expected.
Once we're there, reaping the fruits of all our "faking," we somehow begin to take on a new identity in people's eyes They assume we've always been in control and known what was going on. They defer to us for advice.
But that couldn't be further from the truth. So we keep on faking it.
Redditor espectro11 asked:
"What's your 'I don't know, I didn't think I'd get this far' moment?"
Many Redditors discussed their experiences navigating the intimidating environment of job applications, interviews, and offers.
Oh Right, Getting Paid
"I gave my resume to fancy private school (I'm a teacher, but new to the field) and I didn't expect a call back. But they called me today to ask my expected salary and I said 'I don't know what the average is. Let me Google it.' "
"Ya girl was not prepared."
"When I went for a walk-in interview looking like crap and they hired me on the spot. I get they were hiring for a new store, but they up and said 'if you want the job it's yours, when can you start?' "
"Deada** didn't think I'd make it that far."
Outside the Box
"Years ago I was applying to a bunch of copywriting jobs and feeling frustrated because I wasnt hearing back from any of the places I was applying to."
"It was especially frustrating because I was putting in all this time on cover letters and I felt like nobody was even reading them, so I said, 'Fu** it, I'm gonna write one that is more me.' I thought it was a dumb idea and never imagined that it would work, but somehow it did."
"I applied with this cover letter and the subject line "Copywriter: Will Work for Beer" to a job that I was very underqualified for. It managed to catch the eye of the headhunter for the ad agency and was enough to get me an interview. Shortly after that I was hired and ended up working there for a few years, but I remember thinking on my first day, 'I can't believe that actually worked.' "
Just Not the Right Fit
"An interview at Google. The 20 years younger than me was describing the peer review system."
"I responded with 'Jesus, that sounds awful.' "
"I did not get the job."
Others also shared experiences that centered on their working lives. But these stories weren't about being hired or interviewed.
These were accounts of long-developing success stories that they never would have predicted.
A Winding Road
"My entire legal career"
"I have four degrees and a 10 year career in commerical litigation. I just wrapped up a $200mil trusts lawsuit."
"I started at uni doing theatre and stand up comedy. I have no fu**ing idea where I turned to get here."
"Started at a very small company doing sales straight out of college. I went about messaging big corporate players (who obviously would never do business with us since our size) and was laughed at by my new colleagues for even trying."
"2 weeks later My boss was asking me what we (a team of 6) should say on the conference call with Toshiba Buyers."
Putting Fires Out
"Me at work. I feel like every issue that comes up has me unprepared. But I am always praised for my good work."
"So, I assume I have imposter syndrome and keep doing what I am doing."
So next time you find yourself ruling a possibility out completely, maybe take just a few seconds to imagine it actually occurred and prepare.
You just never know.
I'm going to be perfectly honest––I'm a city boy. I'm not a huge fan of hiking or camping. I happen to be a huge fan of running water. Have you heard of it? It's great. Highly recommended.
I've also, on a more humorous note, watched far too many horror films over the years and don't particularly like idea of running off into the woods only to piss off some demon that was perfectly fine until I arrived. I also have immense respect for our friendly neighborhood serial killers and demonstrate this regularly by staying out of their territory.
Those who love the great outdoors had plenty to share after Redditor Your_Normal_Loser asked the online community, "
Hikers of Reddit, what is the weirdest or creepiest thing you've come across while hiking?"
"The only reason..."
"When we were exploring the Australian Outback as university students, my friend and I found an old, tightly wrapped plastic bag with five or six damaged wallets along shrubbery at the base of a cliff.
The only reason we opened it up was because we were so remote - hundreds of kilometres from any town or tourist attraction - that it was strange to see garbage out there. All the cards were in female names and birthdates placed them in their late teens to early 20s. Some lived in the Northern Territory but one was in Sydney and another from Queensland. At the time we figured rock climbers must have stored their valuables in the bag and then lost track of it. I'll never forget the strange look the police officer gave us when we handed them in."
You see... this is why I wouldn't go mess around in the Australian Outback.
I also may or may not have watched Wolf Creek one too many times.
"A recliner on a small hill with a hole dug out in the middle and water bottles all over the place."
"A trashed campsite..."
"A trashed campsite complete with the tent cut open...
...do you report these things, or what?"
Or maybe not... you might want to turn back.
"The walls were completely plastered..."
"I was walking in a thick forest and came across an opening. In the center there was a shack made of lumber, with a bench built into it that was slightly leaned back.
The walls were completely plastered in porn."
Well... that's one way to get off.
"The man stopped talking..."
"I was backpacking with a few friends. A few days in the middle of nowhere, a man approached our camp as we were cooking dinner to say hi. We talked about our routes for a few minutes. Out of nowhere, he told us that he had had a vasectomy in his 30s after his 2nd child. Then somehow his wife had gotten pregnant with his 3rd child. He didn't believe this was possible, so he demanded a DNA test to see if he was actually the father. He was. Still, he explained that he had his doubts and thought that his wife must have fixed the DNA test.
My friends and I were in our 20s and had no idea why this guy was telling us this. We all just nodded and smiled.
The man stopped talking and then just walked away into the night."
"I stepped in..."
"I stepped in and fell over a cow carcass on a night hike. It was a bright moonlit night but I didn't see it in the shadows. Thankfully it was mostly dry."
"We still have no idea..."
"I was in the woods with three friends at night. A friend's house was nearby and I was getting hungry so I went inside to find some food. Another friend came inside with me. Two friends were still outside.
Later on, one of the two who outside came in and sees the indoor friend on the couch next to me. They panic and immediately run back outside.
I poke my head out the door asking what's going on, only to hear them yell as loudly as they can, "THAT'S NOT KEVIN"
Everyone comes inside and calms down a bit, and the story comes out. They thought the friend who was indoors with me (Kevin) had been outside with them this entire time. Why? Because in the darkness of the woods they saw a silhouette about the same height walking alongside them silently, then at some point it ran away and they were chasing it thinking Kevin was running off for some reason. The reason my friend yelled, "That's not Kevin" was to stop the last outdoor friend from chasing whoever was out there deeper into the woods.
We still have no idea who that was or why they didn't even speak."
This story sent a chill running down my spine.
Who was that?!
Perhaps figuring it out would be even scarier.
"Went hiking with my dad..."
"Went hiking with my dad one day over a ridge. A girl from the group in front of us tripped and slid down one side and was just able to hold on to the tiniest branch from the only tree around. Had she slid down all the way she certainly would be dead or massively injured!"
"I was trying to make my way across..."
"I was hiking in Washington sometime in December. I was trying to make my way across a river but the bridge was out. I was walking along the shore looking for a shallow spot but couldn't find one. I saw some footprints leading down the bank, my thought was that someone was trying to do what I was doing and decided to track the prints to see if they crossed. It was not easy but I followed the prints for about a mile. As I approached what looked like a crossing I heard a loud BANG like a stick hitting a tree. I froze for a few seconds and heard no other noises. I just slowly back up keeping my eyes on the other side of the river. Could not shake the feeling that I was being watched. Got the hell out of there quick as I could."
There are few feelings creepier than the feeling of being watched. It makes you feel like you've been violated in some way.
Thankfully you got out of there!
"I thought it was a magical, beautiful moment..."
"I was hiking with some friends, and I saw a cluster of butterflies on the ground. I thought it was a magical, beautiful moment until I realized they were congregating on a pool of blood. It turns out that someone had been hiking on the bluffs above earlier that day, and had fallen off and died."
Sooo... still want to go hiking or camping? None of this changed your mind? None of it?
It was nice knowing you. I'll stick with my running water.
Have some creepy stories of your own? Feel free to tell us about them in the comments below!
Have some experiences of your own? Have you also survived the hospitality industry? Feel free to tell us about it in the comments below!
Time is of the essence. And time is not definable. Those are lessons we learn as we get older; as times passes and fluctuates in front of us.
Time is always fleeting yet always catches up to us. I find myself shocked when I wake up on certain days and realize I'm a particular age of my parent that sticks out for me.
Like, how did that happen? I guess I should just be thankful I'm still here to witness it all.
Redditor u/TW1103 wanted to discuss the meaning... of time and all of its affects by asking:
What fact really puts the scale of time into an insane perspective?
Ok, who is watching the clock? Those seconds aren't going to count themselves. The only way to understand time is to be its witness. Although that can get depressing. Let's focus on the light and cool.
History...Calculate Figure It Out GIF by OriginalsGiphy
"If you are an 80-year-old American, you have lived through approximately 1/3 of our nation's entire history."
"The 80s were 40 years ago."
"This is what messes me up because I was born in 82 and graduated high school in 2000 so for some reason my brain is stuck on the 80's being twenty years ago. The 70's thirty years ago etc etc. I have to stop and realize sometimes that my concept of how long ago things happened is way off."
Time goes by...
"We observe that light travels at 186,000 miles a second, but given the vast size of the observable universe, that's a snail's pace. But from the point of view of a particle of light, time doesn't even exist."
"Time slows down as you approach the speed of light, and theoretically stops completely when you reach the speed of light."
Years Gone By...
"MLK Jr. and Anne Frank were born in the same year."
"Betty White was born in 1922. Automatically pre-sliced packaged bread loaves became commercially available in 1928. Betty White is six years older than sliced bread."
Long Live the Queen!queen elizabeth images GIFGiphy
"The queen and Marilyn Monroe would've been the same age."
I swear Liz is going to outlive dirt. Wait, I believe she already has. Well she won't be alone, she'll have Betty White. At least she better have Betty. Time is nothing without Queen Betty.
TV TimeSeason 2 Omg GIF by Paramount+Giphy
"Happy Days was a TV show made in the 1970s-80s about teenagers in the 1950s. Similarly, That 70s Show was made in the 90s-00s about teenagers in the 70s. If a similar show were to be made today, it would be about teenagers in the 2000s."
"If a T-Rex imagined a creature as ancient as the T-Rex is to us, it would be a Stegosaurus. If that Stegosaurus imagined a creature as ancient as the Stegosaurus is to us, it would be a Crocodile. If that Crocodile imagined a creature as ancient as that Crocodile is to us, it would be a Shark."
On the Clock
"On a twenty four hour clock the amount of time that humans have been on the earth would total around five seconds."
"How about this one: If Homo Habilus first appeared at midnight, 24 hours ago, that means the first Homo Sapiens appeared at 9:25 PM, or about 2 and a half hours ago. The first human civilization, in lower Mesopotamia, appeared at 11:57 PM, or about 3 minutes ago."
"The Western Roman Empire fell at 11:59 PM, or 1 minute ago. Everything that has happened since - the Crusades, the Plague, the discovery of the New World, the world wars, all of it - has happened in the last minute of human existence."
And that's just OUR Sun...
"The span of our lives are so insignificantly small that our Sun will last another 5 billion years. That's 9 zeros people. Our eldest live to around 100 in the best places. That's 50,000,000 (50 million) times longer than any person can reasonably expect to live. And that's just OUR Sun. The universe as a whole has probably existed for magnitudes longer than that already and will continue to exist until the end of time as we know it."
Tell Me a Storywilliam shakespeare GIF by will herringGiphy
"We know what a good storyteller Shakespeare was but there were Greek playwrights who wrote shows nearly 2,000 years earlier that are pretty good, too."
I hate time. Only because I'm petty and irritated of the amount I squandered. That's neither here nor there though. Time marches on and continues to amaze. I'll keep watching.
