When people show you who they really are... be ready to run. That is a mantra of life. We have all been bamboozled by the art of the grift. When the grift is humanity it's hard to hard to recognize. A best friend is chosen family, that chooses you as you are, so, that is why it is that much more heartbreaking when a BFF is exposed in cruelty. When someone is a no... then no.

Redditor u/cbvv1992 wanted to hear about the times we've all realized our ride or die was a problem by asking.... What was your "oh fuck, my best friend is a bad person" moment?

She Crazy

She showed me a heartfelt letter a neighbor wrote for her, mocking the neighbor the whole time. Then would talk for hours with same neighbors boyfriend on the phone. In a giant twist, she cut me off out of nowhere and went back to being best friends with the girl she mocked. I should've acknowledged the red flag when I saw it. Also she never put shopping carts back in the return spot.

bad kids

Not me; my daughter. Best friend for grades 2 to 7 laid in wait with others and ambushed and beat her. No reason given.

This happened recently in my local town. Group of friends had known each other for years. One friend shows off $200 in cash he was planning to use for drugs. Others friends proceeded to beat the crap out of him, even pulled a gun, to steal his money. Now they're all being charged as adults. All over for a measly $200.

Keep your Xbox

Bad person, yes, but also hot mess. He was dating a mom (not a problem), then she got a restraining order against him because he beat her up after she broke his Xbox because he was playing it too much. Then they both decided to ignore the restraining order and get married and have a kid together. They're divorced now.

Thieves

This afternoon when I discovered her and her husband were taking my money for our insurance policy even though they cancelled it back in October. They actively hid my notices I had received in the mail from the dmv as well. I'm honestly still trying to process it all.

She Trash

My brother told me about a girl he had been dating for a while and one evening they stopped for food on the way home. I think it was KFC. he said they had parked nearby in a parking lot and when she had finished she thew her packaging right out of the window. He demanded she got out to pick it up, and when she did he locked the doors and drove home without her, and she had to walk home, a good hour away. He had so many missed calls when he got home but he blocked her after that. (it wasn't late and it was a busy public place, so he didn't endanger her, just massively inconvenienced her).

That Night...

The night my husband (fiancè at the time) got home from a deployment, and a bunch of us were out celebrating. My friend had been pressuring her bf to propose to her for ages, but he wasn't ready. She followed me into the bathroom, started sobbing and declared she wanted a ring so bad she wished her bf would get deployed. I told her she didn't mean that but she insisted she did. She said she didn't care if it was dangerous, she just needed a ring.

I visited a different friend on a big drinking holiday. She started loudly commenting on other girls bodies (i.e. she doesn't have the butt for that dress, she's too fat for that, etc.) and wouldn't cool it. When it was time to catch the train back to her apartment, she declared she planned to stay at the bartenders apartment and wouldn't give me her keys so I could go to her place. (I hadn't known of her plan beforehand, and was not comfortable with it.)

We finally left, but she would not go to the metro. She acted like she didn't know where it was, and kept walking back to the bar. We eventually caught the last train of the night and she spent the ride whining that I made the holiday boring and making fun of a drunk guy near us who was trying incredibly hard not to puke. When he did (into a bag his friend held) she laughed ruthlessly.

We bad

I knew we were all "bad people" but I realized my best friend was fundamentally different from me when he started bringing his teenaged son with him on drug deals and smoking around him. Even at my lowest, I did everything I could to keep my kids away from that.

The Spot

When he slashed the tires of another driver just bc "they took his spot." He wasn't my best friend to start with, and instantly became a non friend at that very moment. When he slashed the tires of another driver just bc "they took his spot."

I became friends of this guy about 4 years ago, he seem pretty normal, then he had a horrible fight with his roommate and police had to get involve, his roommate was bipolar and refused to take his medication, so I assume my friend was one right. Years has passed and this person has had a fall out with every single person that has lived with, police has been involved multiple times and this person still doesn't realize that HE IS THE PROBLEMATIC ONE, I'm sorry but if in 4 years 7 roommates or so have been awful and police had to intervene with at least 3 of them, maybe just maybe you are the one with the problem.

Freaking littered, just chucking garbage on the streets like it's nothing. I'm not friends with barbarians.

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?
