Oh the secrets we tell when we have no idea anyone is listening. Once we are deeply ensconced in our R.E.M slumber we surrender our wits and our will to our imagination, or to the dark crevices of our mind that extols truth. The things we mumble to the lover beside us can garner us a hardy chuckle for years to come or.... 10-20 in the state penitentiary. Our imaginations run wild in sleep, so have your affairs in order.

Redditor Jhaydun_Dinan wanted to hear what sort of things get whispered in the night whilst in slumber from loved ones by asking.... Hey, Reddit, those of you with partners who talk in their sleep; what is the creepiest/weirdest/or most random thing they've said?


The Local Touch....

Giphy

I was told by my fiancé that he came to bed one night after I had fallen asleep and started rubbing my back, which apparently prompted me to sleep-say "This just in! Local boy massages.. other local boy!!"

I am a 26 year old female but that night I was a young 19th century newsboy at heart. cardedformilk

That's one Spicy Meatball! 

Completely at random: "OPEN THE WINDOW ABIGAIL I'M BURNING LIKE A MEATBALL" we don't even know an Abigail. thoughtcasserole

YOU don't know an Abigail. elmo39

Too Loud! 

My wife once in the middle of a dead sleep just did like a possessed scream/yell. It was from quiet to loud. Kind of like aaaaaAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHH. And then she started snoring immediately after. I didn't go back to sleep for a while. Tangata_Puhuruhuru

WOOOOOOO!!! 

Once, me and our roommate were downstairs, while my husband was sleeping upstairs. We heard him yelling in his sleep and I figured he was having a nightmare and went to check on him.

Turns out he was, in fact, not yelling. in his dream he had a bunch of creepy ghost children trapped in a hole and was mocking them by saying "WoOoOoO~ WoOoOoO~... B***hes." zikeel

Then get some Tide....

"Bleach your a**hole already, would ya?"

He sleeps very hard, we can have conversations while he's asleep. I've got several of them on video and they're some of my most favorite things. TheBottleRed

We're so Woke!

One time while sleeping I grabbed my partner by the shoulder and told her "hey, people are just stacks of years" like it was the most important thing in the world. ewhit276

Meet George Jetson....

My wife doesn't Reddit but she would jump to tell you that I said; "How come you get the cool spaceships and i get the Jetsons?" Then made the Jetsons flying car sound and went back to sleep. Taodragons

Yes. Coupons! 

I have two great ones:

  1. I had stayed up late and husband was asleep in bed. We had creaky wood floors, so I was walking slowly into the bedroom trying not to make too much noise. I stepped on a creaky spot, and husband shifted in bed and then said, in a very cheeky/smiling tone: "I have a machine... that will shoot you.. if you move around. It'll shoot you right now!" Then he was back to be being dead asleep.
  2. I was reading in bed, husband turned to snuggle into me and then this conversation: Him: (in a cutesy, flirty tone) "Coupons." Me: "Coupons?" Him: "Yeah, coupons." lalammle

Off with the Head! 

My roommate sleep talks almost every night and I once walked in on him sobbing. Full on bawling.

I asked if he was good and he said in the calmest voice "yeah sure I just wanted to see it to the end".... he doesn't remember it one bit. The runner-up was when he burst into laughter and then said "why did none you try to chop my head off just then?" spurtz_

Should've hid it in the banana stand....

Giphy

"The money is hidden off the road by the Indian Reservation." I tried to get her to talk more but she mumbled something I couldn't understand and went back to sleep.

She doesn't remember her dreams after she wakes up so it's this mystery of whether or not she hid money in the desert. nicefineapple

Being overweight comes with numerous challenges.

And not only challenge's to one's health.

Unfortunately, overweight people are far too often a target for judgment and ridicule, often owing to misconceptions.

Even worse, sometimes simply being bigger than other people leads others to assume that they must also be less than or inadequate in general.

Redditor Rude_Guarantee_1479 was curious to hear what people felt is the worst part, or most common misconception about being overweight, leading them to ask:

Don't forget to hang up or turn off your phone.

It seems simple enough to remember.

But more and more people seem to forget this simple little step, and find themselves saying things which weren't meant to be heard by the person on the other end of the phone.

Or worse, if it's a FaceTime or Zoom chat, the person on the other end might see something that wasn't meant to be seen.

Redditor ScarTissue5 was curious to hear the many wild things people overheard when people thought they'd hung up, but didn't, leading them to ask:

"What’s the craziest thing you’ve heard someone say after they thought the phone call had ended but they forgot to hang up?"

Religious People Explain How They Really View Atheism

The joy of living in a pluralistic society is the ability to practice any religion one so chooses.

What is often forgotten is that this includes not practicing any religion at all.

Making this hard to remember is when American politicians espouse their conservative views owing to "religious reasons", seeming to forget about the first amendment, and unable to understand others who don't practice their own religion.

Others, however, are more tolerant of those who do not have any divine beliefs, however religious they might be themselves.

Redditor _DSYR was curious to hear views on Atheism from people who were devoutly religious themselves, leading them to ask:

"Religious people, how do you view atheism/atheists?"

Reddit is one if those internet things that either you totally get, or you absolutely don't.

To some, it's a ridiculous echo chamber of people who live to egg one another on.

To others, it's a supportive community with its own sort of rules, culture, superlatives, and even language.

Whichever camp you fall into, there's some stuff you need to know if you're gonna survive.
