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.
"Being the type of person..."
Being the type of person who is kind without trying to get recognized for it.
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 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.
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.
