In this day and age of hacking and piracy why we even bother with codes and passwords is beyond me. Plus internet is so state of the art right now who cares what frequency you're on.... just share your webs. But not everyone feels that way. Most of us like to get creative with naming our frequencies. Well creative can be a stretch, some people just get flat out nuts

Redditor u/KatieB_Erickson wanted to see who was the most creative with their wi-fi identities by asking.... What's the best Wi-Fi name you've seen?


Louder!

'Yell penis for password.' Had a handful of funny encounters out of that, especially on the train.

This was the wifi in my college house and we had the password set as yell louder. We would have people screaming it over and over again, sometimes taking hours to figure it out. One guy never even got it, he just gave up and went home, poor guy.

CEXUK. 

In the UK we have a second hand games/electronics store called 'Central Entertainment Exchange', which is shortened to CEX.

Their staff WiFi is called ProtectedCEX and their public one is UnprotectedCEX.

Pay Up! 

When my school lost Internet for a few dozen minutes you'd see a few mobile data hotspots pop up. My favorite was, translated, "I PAY TUITION AND GET NO NET."

I pictured this as one of the yelled statements before "Goodness gracious great balls of fire."

Fools. 

Ours is 'Lord of the Pings' And the password is 'wifi you fools.'

KatieB_Erickson

Oh wow. My 2.4g network is "Lord of the Pings" and my 5g network is "Return of the Ping".

G'Day.

"I come from a LAN down under."

This was in Australia.

Love. 

Tell my WiFi love her.

Ma. 

Mom this one.

Password: mom's name + birth year.

Spontanemoose

When I visit my parents I love setting theirs to "Mom Click Here." It pisses her off so much.

519....

519WillFlickYourBean

519 was the house number on a street for college kid housing.

JasonMHorn

Short of asking OP which i guess you are doing. Go past Every college campus checking your wifi for the name specified in the post (this may take some time) until you find that room then knock on their door and enjoy your flicked bean.

Hey Pat.

Wifi name: Is this the krusty krab?

Password: no this is patrick.

Conspiracy theories are beliefs that there are covert powers that be changing the course of history for their own benefits. It's how we see the rise of QAnon conspiracies and people storming the capital.

Why do people fall for them? Well some research has looked into the reasons for that.

The Association for Psychological Science published a paper that reviewed some of the research:

"This research suggests that people may be drawn to conspiracy theories when—compared with nonconspiracy explanations—they promise to satisfy important social psychological motives that can be characterized as epistemic (e.g., the desire for understanding, accuracy, and subjective certainty), existential (e.g., the desire for control and security), and social (e.g., the desire to maintain a positive image of the self or group)."

Whatever the motivations may be, we wanted to know which convoluted stories became apart of peoples consciousness enough for them to believe it.

I hate ghosts, even if it's Casper. My life is already stressful enough. I don't need to creeped out by spirits from the beyond. Shouldn't they be resting and basking in the glow of the great beyond instead of menacing the rest of us?

The paranormal seems to be consistently in unrest, which sounds like death isn't any more fun or tranquil than life. So much for something to look forward to.

Some ghosts just like to scare it up. It's not always like "Ghosthunters" the show.

Redditor u/Murky-Increase4705 wanted to hear about all the times we've faced some hauntings that left us shook, by asking:

Reddit, what are your creepy encounters with something that you are convinced was paranormal?

A lot of talk going on about women's bodies, isn't there?

Not necessarily with women front and center as part of the conversation, unfortunately.
