There's something about traveling to some remote corner of the world that never stops being cool. I remember ambling through the English countryside last year... there was no one to be found for miles around. It was incredible. The weather was crisp and clear and everything felt imbued with a kind of magical aura. I felt as carefree as you can imagine!

After Redditor apairofpetducks asked the online community, "What never stopped being cool?" people weighed in with their own observations.


"Just go with the flow."

Life is genuinely not so complicated as we think; just stop becoming more serious about it. Just go with the flow. The time is uncertain no one knows what's gonna happen next. So, keep your calm and enjoy each and every moment carefree.

"Doesn't matter."

Finding money... on the ground, in a pair of pants... Doesn't matter. Finding money is always cool.

"When the extroverts..."

When the extroverts notice the introverts and make it a personal mission to understand what goes on inside an introverts head, just because.

"Some people..."

Pokemon.

Some people may have stopped openly admitting it was cool, but it never stopped.

"Whether it's the theme..."

Bill Nye the Science guy.

Whether it's the theme we all jam out to when in class (or anywhere), or the current Tik Tok he has where some cool science experiments and explanations have been given! He's been cool with sharing science to everyone!

"Being a humble guest..."

Giving your friends a case of beer for helping you do stuff around the house. Paying full price and more to family members/friends that are giving you a hook up, because you want to support their success. Listening to someone when they need an open ear. Being a humble guest and a gracious host. Staying level headed when you disagree. That one friend that you can talk to after 6 months of radio silence and pick up right where you left off. Being understanding when people have different struggles, and doing your best to empathize. Idk... Just being cool.

"Somebody throwing an item..."

Somebody throwing an item into the bin from an impressive distance, and shrugging it off like it's nothing.

When I was five it was just as cool as it is now.

StonedGibbon

"That person..."

That person who doesn't care who anybody is and is just friends with everyone.

"Guys being good to women..."

Guys being good to women (and people in general) and doing good things for them without expecting anything in return.

Sometimes I think back to a teacher I had when I was a kid who demanded to know whether any of us were "raised in a barn" in response to crappy behavior. Namely littering. She hated littering. Can you blame her? It's a horrible habit and some people do it with no sense of shame. She dedicated much of her time to telling students to pick up after themselves and dispose of things properly. For that, I'm thankful.

But why didn't anyone else get the memo? The trash I see on the streets is obscene.

People had lots of thoughts to share after Redditor SneakyStriedker876 asked the online community,

"What seemingly uncivilized thing is commonplace in society?"

I love presents. I try to hide my enthusiasm, and I do my best to appease the greater public by saying "it's the thought that counts." But that is a WHOLE lie. I don't just love gifts, I love great gifts. And if you go rogue from my lists, please keep a receipt. It's just plain rude to divert from what the recipient has requested.

This thought process has emerged from experience. I have received some trash presents over the years and now I'm too old to pretend you just went crazy while shopping. Like... "do you even know me?!"

Redditor u/sulemannkhann wanted to hear all about the presents some of us have received that we prayed, came with a receipt, by asking:

What's the worst birthday gift you ever got?

I'm still on the fence about this whole extraterrestrial situation. I need more proof. Now I'm not naive enough to think that in this vast, endless universe only the human race exists. I just need proof, tangible, solid, didn't see it from my trailer through beer goggles proof.

I also need proof about the afterlife, another out there topic. Truth be told, I've never been that into this whole conversation. I've got enough daily problems on this planet, let alone worrying about making Will Smith's biggest hits into documentaries and not just popcorn/comedy space farce.

But let's compare thoughts...

Redditor u/ValencikHannibal197 wanted to discuss life beyond this planet, what do we really think? They asked:

What's the best theory on UFOs or aliens you've ever heard??
