While life can seemingly offer you challenges and obstacles to overcome, sometimes there's situations when you should probably walk all the way away. No, it's not a metaphorical mountain for you to climb. It's a polar bear and it's running right for you.

Run away.


Reddit user, u/TheHolyNut_, wanted to no what to avoid when they asked:

What should you absolutely never f*ck with?

From The Mouths Of Doctors:

homer simpson surgery GIF Giphy

In surgery we say, "eat when you can, sleep when you can, and don't f*ck with the pancreas".

Edit (for explanation): The pancreas is very volatile. It is difficult to manipulate and sew. It also likes to leak digestive enzymes into the abdominal cavity, leading to self-digestion and organ damage!

Springy Death

The springs that help raise your garage door.

Those things are like a bomb going off if you do the wrong thing !

I just had mine replaced a few weeks ago.

Even the installer was a bit freaked out putting the new one under tension.

Taken Small, Taken Too Far

Benzodiazepines, I had a small prescription for anxiety in college, that lead to buying them on the street because "it's my prescription I need them!" Cant remember an entire year of my life and lost a lot in the process

duluthzenithcity

I bought a strip of those a while back and finished it off in no time. Like vacation up in my noggin'. Immediately understood why they're so addictive. Doesn't give you a high or anything, but the absense of anxiety... I can see why people get hooked. I haven't gotten any more strips, seems like a bad idea

Polar bears are often regarded as one of the only (if not the only) animals that actively hunt humans. No, that doesn't just mean if you get close to one, watch your back-that means even if you get away from them, they will try to smell your tracks, and hunt you. This can reportedly go on for miles. Oh, and it doesn't help that they're the largest bears in the world at 11 feet tall on their hind legs, and weigh about 1,700 pounds on average, not to mention they can run fast, and rip you to shreds. Luckily, they're only in a select handful of areas in the world.

Yep, don't f-ck with Polar Bears.

Trust Your Gut

You know that feeling you get when you absolutely don't trust someone but can't figure why? Well if you're like me don't f-ck with that, it's better to make a wrong assumption and someone turn out a nice person than you end up in a horrible situation for being too optimistic/burying impulsive instincts

NscottM

100% Every time I've struggled to trust someone they've proved me right. I've described it as getting a 'bad scent' off someone. Its rare, twice professionally and once personally, but you should never ignore your gut.

A&F Says, "What's Up?"

Moose, they are mean bastards and are way bigger than most people realize. Also if you happen to hit one with your car you're most likely gonna die as they are big enough you just take their legs out from under them and then they land in your lap.... all 1200 pounds of them.

Not Necessarily Bad, Just Not Well Protected

Electricity that hums

hamrmech

The hum is called "coil whine" which is caused by electrical components in a circuit vibrating from the magnetic force produced by the current flowing through nearby components (magnetostriction also produces noise, but to a lesser extent).

Hearing coil whine doesn't necessarily mean anything, as even low voltage circuits like those in a computer GPU or power supply can hum. It just means that wires aren't well shielded or are arranged in a certain way.

Wait, What?

AM Radio Towers

If you're stupid enough to grab one, you will die. You won't feel it. You'll just hear whatever station it's broadcasting in your brain, because most of your nerve endings will be fried before you feel the pain.

season 3 train GIF Giphy

Trains.

If one rolls over your leg, you won't bleed too much. The sheer weight will just flattens the wounds and pinches off the blood vessels. Unfortunately, it also means everything is so damaged that it would be impossible to reattach.

ksiyoto

I photograph and locate trains as a hobby. This is correct. You 100% do not f-ck with trains. I've seen do many near misses, sometimes because people what to be on that train do badly, sometimes because people are stupid around trains and sometimes because people want one photo really badly and are willing to stand right on the track to get it.

If you don't care about yourself, at least think of the driver. Even a near miss can f-ck a driver up for days-years, actual collisions can make them never recover.

Have you ever been reading a book, watching a movie, or even sitting down for a fantastical cartoon and began to salivate when the characters dig into some doozy of a made up food?

You're not alone.

Food is apparently fertile ground for creativity. Authors, movie directors, and animators all can't help but put a little extra time and effort into the process of making characters' tasty delights mouthwatering even for audiences on the other side of the screen.

Read on for a perfect mixture of nostalgia and hunger.

AllWhammyNoMorals asked, "What's a fictional food you've always wanted to try?"

Some people were all about the magical foods eaten in the magical places. They couldn't help but wish they could bite into something with fantastical properties and unearthly deliciousness.

Nutritious

"Enchanted golden apple" -- DabbingIsSo2015

"The Minecraft eating sounds make me hungry" -- FishingHobo

"Gotta love that health regeneration" -- r2celjazz

"Pretty sure those are based off the golden apples that grant immortality. Norse mythology I think?" -- Raven_of_Blades

Take Your Pick

"Nearly any food from Charlie and the Chocolate factory" -- CrimsonFox100

"Came here to say snozzberries!" -- Utah_Writer

"Everlasting Gobstoppers #1, but also when they're free to roam near the chocolate river and the entire environment is edible." -- devo9er

Peak Efficiency

"Lembas" -- Roxwords

"The one that fills you with just a bite? My fat a** would be making sandwiches with two lembas breads and putting bacon, avocado and cheese inside. Then probably go for some dessert afterwards. No wonder why those elves are all skinny, eating just one measly bite of this stuff." -- sushister

Some people got stuck on the foods they saw in the cartoons they watched growing up. The vibrant colors, the artistic sounds, and the exaggerated movements all come together to form some good-looking fake grub.

The One and Only

"Krabby patty 🍔" -- Cat_xox

"And a kelp shake" -- titsclitsntennerbits

"As a kid I always pretended burgers from McDonalds were Krabby Patties, heck from time to time I still do for the nostalgia of it all. Many of my friends did the same thing." -- Thisissuchadragtodo

Cheeeeeeeeese

"The pizza from an extremely goofy movie. The stringy cheese just looked magical lol" -- ES_Verified

"The pizza in the old TMNT cartoon as well." -- gate_of_steiner85

"Only bested by the pizza from All Dogs Go to Heaven." -- Purdaddy

Get a Big Old Chunk

"Those giant turkey drumsticks in old cartoons that characters would tear huge chunks out of. Those things looked amazing, turkey drumsticks in real life suck and are annoying to eat."

-- Ozwaldo

Slurp, Slurp, Slurp

"Every bowl of ramen on any anime, ever." -- Cat_xox

"Studio Ghibli eggs and bacon" -- DrManhattan_DDM

"Honestly, any food in anime. I swear to god half the budget no matter what the studio goes into making the food look absolutely delicious." -- Viridun

Finally, some highlighted the things that aren't quite so far-fetched, but still far enough away that it's nothing we'll be eating anytime soon.

That tease can be enough to make your mouth water.

What's In It??

"Butter beer" -- Damn_Dog_Inappropes

"came here to say this. i was pretty disappointed with the universal studio version which was over the top sweet. it was more of a butterscotch root beer. i imagine butter beer to be something more like butter and beer, which wouldn't be crazy sweet, but would have a very deep rich flavor" -- crazyskiingsloth

Slice of the Future

"The microwave pizzas in back to the future two" -- biggiemick91

"I've been fascinated with those for years! They just look so good!" -- skoros

As Sweet As They Had

"The Turkish Delight from Lion Witch & Wardrobe. The real ones I had weren't bad but nothing special." -- spoon_shaped_spoon

"Came here to say this. I know it's a real thing, but I always imagined that it must have been amazing to betray your siblings over." -- la_yes

"You're used to freely available too sweet sweets. For a WW2 era schoolkid, it would have represented all the sweets for an entire year." -- ResponsibleLimeade



Here's hoping you made it through the list without going into kitchen for some snack you didn't actually need.

When a movie rakes in a ton of cash at the box office, the studio that made it has only one thing on its mind: "How do we keep shaking this money tree?"

Unfortunately, that means they make sequels, sometimes sequels on sequels on sequels.

Oftentimes I like to do my best Ghostface impression and aggressively ask people what their favorite scary movies are. Because I personally have a lot! At the same time, I'm also terrified that at any point, I could end up getting my head punched off by Jason Vorhees (Part 8 of the series--best one IMO).

I hate hypocrites. They are the bane of my existence. All you have to do is stand behind your words. How hard is that? You said them. I especially get peeved when people bloviate on a topic and condemn and holler but then when it comes to them doing it... silence.

Redditor u/ErrForceOnes wanted to know about the moments people chose to curiously "pay no mind" by asking... What is a GIANT hypocrisy that no one seems to mind?
