We live in a world where pretty much everything has a warning label - except maybe the thing that needs it most ...


Other. People.

Admit it, you're exhausted dealing with people who appear to be one thing but turn out to be something wildly different. Even worse - people who are totally cool until you find out they have one seriously major deal-breaking "quirk." Mine was a guy who was awesome until you were in a car with him and found out he would swerve all over the road to purposefully try and hit iguanas.

He didn't care that he was putting everyone else on the road in danger, he didn't care how upsetting it was for his passengers. He felt it was his "duty as a patriot" to kill them since they are invasive to our area.

I'm pretty sure everyone would have 100% appreciated a warning label on THAT guy.

Reddit user Mypulse asked:

From now on, everyone has a warning label displayed over their heads. What does yours say?

People's responses were surprisingly honest!

How many people do you know battling addictions?

According to the American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM), addiction is "a treatable, chronic medical disease involving complex interactions among brain circuits, genetics, the environment, and an individual's life experiences. People with addiction use substances or engage in behaviors that become compulsive and often continue despite harmful consequences."

Hearing from those who have battled addictions––and come out the other side––can be remarkably eye-opening, as we were reminded once Redditor YoshBotArmy asked the online community,

"People who have beaten an addiction... what's your secret?"

I'm just spitballing here, but it seems to me that pretty much that weapons of war are among humanity's worst creations. Sure: We live in an anarchic world. States can never be certain of another state's intentions. Conflicts are bound to break out. But in a perfect world––and a man can dream––none of this would be necessary.

It seems I'm not alone in this, either. People had opinions of their own after Redditor Questwarrior asked the online community,

"What was the worst human invention ever made?"

Homelessness is an unfortunate and all-too-common occurrence in the world, particularly in the United States. Homelessness has grown to a huge degree, and while most countries have the resources to help their homeless, many choose not to.

It's amazing what the legalities are from place to place. I live in New England, and in Connecticut, passengers are allowed to drink alcohol in the car, as long as they aren't driving. Weed isn't legal there, but open containers in the car? Totally fine. At least we have something to look forward to as we cross the border.
