In the words of The Lion King:

"There's more to see than can ever be seen, more to do than can ever be done." We as humans cannot possibly know the answer to everything. Whether it's questions we have about the world or questions for people who can never answer them, we have millions and millions of questions that will truly never go unanswered.

u/te_affligam seeked to compile a list:

What question will you never get the answer to?

Here were some of the answers.

But Did It Happen?

When I was in highschool I had to get my gallbladder out but something wasn't great and I had to get another procedure a few days later. As I'm heading in I'm joking around with the nurses and they're joking around with me. They slip in the IV and ask if I've got any tattoos or anything I don't want my mom to know about.

I laugh and just as they seem to be ready to knock me out, one of the nurses turns to me and says, "just so you know I might have to stick my finger up your butt"

And then I was out.

I still don't know. And I will never know. It haunts me

A Few Options

My birthday is November 15th, meaning I was "made" around February 14th, aka Valentine's day.... BUT, my dads birthday is February 13th. I guess my question is, was I a birthday present, valentines day gift, or a mistake?

Haha Yeah!

Some years ago, I was in a bar and a girl said something to me that I didn't understand because the music was too loud. So I answered an automatic "yeah haha" which gave her a huge smile made her reply something like "too late ;)".

Wtf did she ask me?

A Story

My father recently passed away and in his things I found a beautiful gold pocket watch. It looks like it's from the late 19th century and the type you see in the movies being passed down from generation to generation. However, my father never wore a pocket watch nor did his father, to my knowledge.

The watch is lovely and in excellent condition, it works perfectly. Yet, I have no idea what the story is with this wonderful heirloom. Since my father comes from a family of war refugees, I would be additionally interested in even the story of it making it into the country. My dad was the last of all his siblings to pass away and, perhaps needless to say, his parents and their siblings have also passed. So, I guess I'll never know.

Confidence Helps

Which girls would've gone out with me if only I'd been confident enough to ask?

Three Point Guess

In the opening credits for Parks & Rec, there is a shot of a basketball hitting the rim and going straight up. They don't show what happens next before cutting away. Did the ball go in?

Not Mind Readers

If A Woodchuck Could Chuck Wood

How much wood could that woodchuck really chuck?

Rabbit Hole

Just how deep does the rabbit hole go, regarding conspiracy theories being true?

Like, is the CIA running the world drug trade?

Does the Illuminati (or whatever name for a shadow government) exist?

Do people really not like pineapple on pizza or is it just an ad campaign for pizza companies to save money by not having to stock pineapple anymore?

Lost In The Wilderness

I got really lost once exploring the back roads in the countryside and tried to take this shortcut through a dense forest that would supposedly take me straight back to the main country road I was trying to get back to.

I spent something like 40 or 50 minutes following this windy and bumpy road through dense forest lands and large hills, only to eventually come across a large sign blocking the road saying "ROAD CLOSED". I had taken this huge detour for nothing and now I was even more lost.

I eventually got back home after a few hours of backtracking, but that road block was still lingering in my mind. Why was the road blocked that far in? Was it a fallen tree? Was it a flood? Was there some kind of large scale destruction that made the road unusable? Did it lead into private property and this was just a hack job way of rectifying it? Or was it something more out there like a biological contamination or maybe something supernatural?

I tried traveling to where the road was supposed to terminate in the other side some time later to try and see if I could explore the road from the other side and find out what's going on, but I couldn't find it. I've entertained the thought of traveling back there and just exploring the road on foot, but it's waaaay out of the way and honestly not worth it. So I guess I'll never know why that mountain road is closed. And maybe that's for the best, since it's become so mysterious to me that any answer is likely to be hella disappointing.

Sometimes I think back to a teacher I had when I was a kid who demanded to know whether any of us were "raised in a barn" in response to crappy behavior. Namely littering. She hated littering. Can you blame her? It's a horrible habit and some people do it with no sense of shame. She dedicated much of her time to telling students to pick up after themselves and dispose of things properly. For that, I'm thankful.

But why didn't anyone else get the memo? The trash I see on the streets is obscene.

People had lots of thoughts to share after Redditor SneakyStriedker876 asked the online community,

I love presents. I try to hide my enthusiasm, and I do my best to appease the greater public by saying "it's the thought that counts." But that is a WHOLE lie. I don't just love gifts, I love great gifts. And if you go rogue from my lists, please keep a receipt. It's just plain rude to divert from what the recipient has requested.

This thought process has emerged from experience. I have received some trash presents over the years and now I'm too old to pretend you just went crazy while shopping. Like... "do you even know me?!"

Redditor u/sulemannkhann wanted to hear all about the presents some of us have received that we prayed, came with a receipt, by asking:

What's the worst birthday gift you ever got?

I'm still on the fence about this whole extraterrestrial situation. I need more proof. Now I'm not naive enough to think that in this vast, endless universe only the human race exists. I just need proof, tangible, solid, didn't see it from my trailer through beer goggles proof.

I also need proof about the afterlife, another out there topic. Truth be told, I've never been that into this whole conversation. I've got enough daily problems on this planet, let alone worrying about making Will Smith's biggest hits into documentaries and not just popcorn/comedy space farce.

But let's compare thoughts...

Redditor u/ValencikHannibal197 wanted to discuss life beyond this planet, what do we really think? They asked:
