Respect is a two-way street, and it's much easier lost than gained. Redditors share their favorite instances of when their respect for someone completely collapsed.

Looking at you, Kanye.

People who dont listen to you and dont care about what you are saying and interrupt you to talk only about their things.

AnaSil

Ima let you finish, but George Bush doesn't care about Beyonce deserving the best record grammy.

The_Quibbler

God my brother will literally ask a question then leave the room halfway through answering it is so annoying.

RhinoInAHat

Unjustified snobbery.

When someone is nice to someone who has high social ranking or some other importance, but they treat regular people, or people they deem to be beneath them, with disdain.

MomNeedsCoffeetoo

"If you want to know what a man's like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals."

jcrreddit

Picking on the weak.

Mistreating people, especially those who can't defend themselves.

The_Superfool

This. Going after a co-worker for an easy laugh is f*cked.

dookieshoes1

There's an art to being direct. Meanness isn't part of it.

Anyone who tries to use being blunt or "random" as an excuse to be an a**hole.

varnell_hill

Or insults/personal attacks disguised as "jokes" or random comments. That passive aggressive shit is clear as day.

conquer69

Ok to be fair there is a time and place for this kind of banter usually between two people who know each other well.

Gloryblackjack

Don't.

Littering.

lexara342

Oh man, I've gotten strange looks when I get home, and empty garbage I've had in my pockets for hours. I avoid littering whenever possible.

FreedTMG

I just can't get myself into my mindset where you just drop your sh*t on the side of the road. It is so easy not to litter.

VeganBigMac

Stealing ideas and then screwing them up.

Taking credit for other people's work. Bonus demerits for simultaneously being incompetent in your own work.

andremensch

Eugh, this drives me insane. I used to work for a guy who did this endlessly while also being the biggest brown-noser and rat. He was the absolute worst person I've ever worked with.

TheQueenOfFilth

This isn't something to brag about.

If they brag about a DUI or how much they blew over the legal limit when they got caught drinking and driving.

sophaloaph13

People who aren't still in college actually do this?

GetUpAndGoGorl

I had a university lecturer who, in a class full of future teachers, bragged about getting away with drink driving and criticising how he couldn't do it anymore.

So yeah, people still do this.

mstrimk

Judging others - you're being judged too.

Making offhand remarks about strangers in public, when they are in hearing range. You don't know their life.

gonaforgetmypassword

My mom does this and it's made me realize why I assume everyone else is saying horrible things about me, too

bowbowhey

This works both ways, if you think something nice about strangers instead it helps with the social anxiety.

meowsticality

This is evil.

Treating animals badly.

Just_my__luck

People who abuse animals are pieces of sh*t.

beardsandwiches

Belligerent ignorance.

When they are bragging about being uninformed or misinformed, and not changing their views when confronted with facts. To me, this is the difference between a stupid and ignorant person -- an ignorant person doesn't know something, but is willing to learn or change their view; a stupid person has no desire to learn or evolve in any way, and they think it's admirable.

CoaxedbySnafu

Anti-intellectualism is a pox on our society. So disappointing to see it in someone.

draeth1013

Totally agree but I think ignorant literally means they ignore things, meaning they aren't willing to learn/change their views. I see what you're saying but I feel like it's the other way to be honest.

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?
