One thing that a lot of young book and movie nerds can relate to is falling in love with a fictional character. That may sound weird to the normies, but it is a very real side effect of being a fangirl/boy. It's just a part of nerd culture at this point. Here are some examples of fictional characters that real life people have fallen for.


u/NFDBTCREPo asked: Which fictional character did you fall for?

He is a cutie.

My 3 year old is absolutely in love with Kristoff. All I hear, "Who does Kristoff love?". Anna is never the correct answer.

There are few conspiracy theories that annoy me lately as much as the QAnon conspiracy theory. Other than it posing a grave threat to our democracy, I can't imagine why anyone in their right mind would take any of it as gospel. It's also remarkably easy to debunk––I'm still waiting for "the Storm" amid the ever-changing goalposts, by the way.

Turns out there are quite a few other conspiracies out there annoy the hell out of people, as we discovered once Redditor Sonic-the-edge-dog asked the online community,

"What's a conspiracy theory that annoys you due to how easily disprovable it is?"

Redditor u/XxXNoobMaster69XxXx was hoping the formerly hearing impaired would sound off a bit by asking:

Ex-deaf people of reddit, what was the most underwhelming sound, respective to your expectations?

Schools are like their own little universes. A whole mini-society, complete with its own specific rules and customs, some of which make absolutely no sense whatsoever. You can't help but wonder what the faculty was thinking in some of these cases, or why no one stopped to think about why they were so weird.

People lie. The tagline of the popular TV series House, MD, was "everybody lies." That includes my parents and yours, folks.

Sometimes parents lie to their children to protect them. Sometimes they lie because it's easier than telling the truth. But unfortunately, not all parents are good people. Some lie to manipulate their children, or hold control over them. And that story is way more common than any of us would like to think.
