The world is full of interesting experiences, ready for you to go out and take in. Unfortunately, most days you're tired after work and all you want to do is go home and relax on the couch with some Netflix. Fortunately, to really tap into what the world has to offer, sometimes it's as close as your own shower.

Trust me.


Reddit user, u/delayedinstantkarma, wanted to know what you might have missed out on when they asked:

Whats a good example of "Don't knock it till you try it"?

That. Extra. Crunch.

Putting chips on a sandwich for that extra delicious crunch

Not Gonna Lie: I wanted to do that for so long but always forgot, thanks for reminding me

Going to the movies alone.

Going to a movie alone in an empty cinema is a spiritual experience

Going In Blind

Watching a movie ONLY knowing the title, Dodge all previews , dodge all mentions of who is in it.

Depending On Where You Live

Walking instead of driving if it's possible on a lovely day.

Live in US so everything is exceptionally car friendly and always figured a walk was a waste of time. Then moved to a new city without a car and decided to spend a few weeks walking to learn the new spots and would just cab when I had to. I learned the city more intimately, lost weight, felt better about leaving my safety net, and was happy especially with weather. Just never understood how great a walk could be and now walk as far as time allows to get places. Ita great.

Again, Don't Knock Until You Try It

Showering in the dark, it's pretty therapeutic and safe if you're not an idiot

Cinnamon Perfection

Cinnamon applesauce on pancakes or waffles instead of syrup.

It's amazing! Kinda like an apple pie.

Here's A Two-For-One

Brush your teeth in the shower.

Don't have to be tidy, just brush like a maniac. Then just spit wherever! Rinse with mouthwash too. It's liberating in the same way as taking your pants off your ankles when you're on the toilet.

Seems Like You Can Have A Lot Of Fun In The Shower...

Shower beer. Wash a little, drink a little, rinse and repeat. Improved my quality of life.

The contrast of the cold beer and the warm water running over you is amazing.

Don't Worry. Let Them Struggle.

Letting your kids figure out problems on their own every now and then

I once saw a dad who let his baby struggle to reach for a toy that was just out of her reach. She spent about 15 solid minutes wiggling her way to that toy.

I almost amazed because most parents never let their children think or solve anything on their own. They just hand them what they need. Or stand them up the second they fall over. Or jump in the minute an argument breaks out. But the kids never learn to do anything on their own

It's Long Form Storytelling!

D&D.

I had a friend at university who would constantly suggest playing, and I always brushed him off. Spending my weekends pretending to be an elf was not my jam, thank you very much.

Then I tried it, and it turns out it's awesome. Who would have thought that drinking beers, eating cheese and killing fake goblins with maths could be so much fun?

There are few things more satisfying than a crisp $20 bill. Well, maybe a crisp $100 bill.

But twenty big ones can get you pretty far nonetheless.

Whether it's tucked firmly in a birthday card, passing from hand to hand after a knee-jerk sports bet, or going toward a useful tool, the old twenty dollar bill has been used for countless purposes.

I realize that school safety has been severely compromised and has been under dire scrutiny over the past decade and of course, it should be. And when I was a student, my safety was one of my greatest priorities but, some implemented rules under the guise of "safety" were and are... just plain ludicrous. Like who thinks up some of these ideas?

Redditor u/Animeking1108 wanted to discuss how the education system has ideas that sometimes are just more a pain in the butt than a daily enhancement... What was the dumbest rule your school enforced?

One of the golden rules of life? Doctors are merely human. They don't know everything and they make mistakes. That is why you always want to get another opinion. Things are constantly missed. That doesn't mean docs don't know what they're doing, they just aren't infallible. So make sure to ask questions, lots of them.

Redditor u/Gorgon_the_Dragon wanted to hear from doctors about why it is imperative we always get second and maybe third opinions by asking... Doctors of Reddit, what was the worse thing you've seen for a patient that another Doctor overlooked?

When we think about learning history, our first thought is usually sitting in our high school history class (or AP World History class if you're a nerd like me) being bored out of our minds. Unless again, you're a huge freaking nerd like me. But I think we all have the memory of the moment where we realized learning about history was kinda cool. And they usually start from one weird fact.

Here are a few examples of turning points in learning about history, straight from the keyboards of the people at AskReddit.

U/Tynoa2 asked: What's your favourite historical fact?
