When the global pandemic hit in March of 2020, everyone hoped that after two weeks or so of social distancing, cases would begin to drop and things would quickly get back to normal.

And though life is slowly getting back to what it once was, cases of COVID-19 continue to ebb and flow.

It almost feels like everyone must have caught COVID-19 at least once by now.

But even three years in and with multiple variants, there are still a very lucky, select few who have yet to test positive for COVID-19.

Redditor jwa8808 was curious to hear how those who have yet to see two red sticks on their rapid tests have managed to avoid catching COVID-19, leading them to ask:

"For people who have never caught covid even once, what's your secret?"


Having no social life comes with its advantages.

"I'm not very social even without a pandemic."- phorq

"Have no friends, lol."

Best perk of a home office!

"Working at home and having no social life or sex."- I-P-Freely4ever

Pure, dumb luck!

One can't help but sympathize with those too afraid to partake in outings and activities they enjoyed prior to the pandemic.

But hopefully the fact that they've avoided catching an illness which has taken the lives of over six million people worldwide is the comfort they need to feel good about their decisions.

"I'm too old for this sh*t"

The iconic words of Roger Murtaugh, portrayed by Danny Glover, in the Lethal Weapon movies.

A thought that all of us have with each passing year, both about things we're now tired of doing, and things we once loved, but don't find as much joy in any more.

After hitting the big 3-0, we find ourselves increasingly surprised by the things we used to find fun, but now might find almost intolerable.

Redditor nonchalannt was curious to hear the things people lost their taste for after their 30th birthday, leading them to ask:

You never know when you may end up in an ER.

"People who were fine one minute, then woke up in the hospital, what happened?"

All of us have something that we tend to "geek out" over.

This could be a book, television show, actor, singer or sports team.

But some shows or celebrities have a considerably wider fanbase than others, as evidenced by the terms "Trekkies" or "Beliebers".

Some times, members of these fan bases are so passionate, that they often come off as obnoxious or aggressive, possibly even hurting the reputation of the people or product they go wild over.

Redditor vejack was curious to learn which fan bases the Reddit community tends to find the most off putting, leading them to ask:

"Which is the most toxic community/fan base that you know?"
