Who can really trust their body? At the end of the day we're all just ticking time-bombs, waiting to go off the moment we hit 30, when our backs suffer something traumatic enough to warrant a complaint every opportunity given. However, there are some aspects of being human that stink a little more than others.


Reddit user, u/anam__cara, wanted to know what should have been caught in the Beta testing phase when they asked:

What is the greatest design f-ck up of the human body?

This...This Feels Like It Should Have Been Caught In Alpha Testing

The breathing hole and the food hole are stupid close.

Their Protection Is Minimal

Probably fingernails, especially toenails.

They are barely useful and if they break in half it is pretty painful

What A Useless Tool

The spine.

You get used to standing/sitting/laying down a certain way and then just like that you have bad posture and is really difficult to correct after a while

Square Peg Into A Pea Sized Hole

Babies have way too big heads for them mum holes. That's just ridiculous. Why can't we be marsupials or smth and give birth to tiny jellies? At least we'd have an extra pocket, that'd be useful with most women's clothing lacking them

Our Bodies Are Cursed Traps

Narcolepsy. Oh, you have it? Whelp, guess you're tired for the rest of your life. But wait, even if you manage to sleep for say, 14 hours you feel as if you only had 3. Also enjoy those periods of insomnia.

And hey! You'll probably fall over too, risking head, neck and other injuries depending on your surroundings and how you fall.

Your brain also immediately into REM sleep when dozing off, so there is the potential factor of either visual or auditory hallucinations.

Why?? Because brain can't produce enough orexin due to destroying the neurons making it! How fun!

(Also pair it up with PTSD? Guess your life is a constant state of nightmares and panicking over the loss of control of your body because of cataplexy.)

Make Up Your Mind On Your Miracles

The fact that the human body can create an entire human inside it, full organ system and everything, but can't get rid of that one scar I got when I was 12

You can bite the inside of your cheeks and your tongue.

What A Useless Body Part

The knees.

For a body part that needs to endure so much stress, they are also very delicate. It's one of the most commonly injured body parts, and it doesn't seem to heal well without surgical intervention. Tear a meniscus? Probably going to need surgery to get part of it cut out, since most of the meniscus doesn't have a blood supply and can't heal itself.

I'll Keep You Alive, Even If It KILLS You

Anaphylaxis. Your body will choke itself to death in an attempt to protect itself.

Yoda2000675

Your body will do anything to keep you alive, even if it kills you.

For example, fevers

Your body has an infection, so your body heats itself up to 40 degrees in an attempt to kill the infection but, your body can't survive at 40 degrees

Like A Testi-Shield?

Testicles, I understand the reason they're not inside the body but damn, could we not have evolved some type of bollock armour by now?

...we need to send a written complaint to the male design department to design some kind of scrotal ribcage.

People Explain Which Lessons Aren't Taught In History Class But Should Be

It's highly believed that it is important to learn history as a means to improve our future.

What is often overlooked is that what is taught in history class is going to be very different depending on where you went to school.

And this isn't just internationally, even different regions of the United states will likely have very different lessons on American history.

This frequently results in our learning fascinating, heartbreaking and horrifying historical facts which our middle or high school history teachers neglected to teach us.

Redditor Acherontia_atropos91 was curious to learn things people either wished they had learned, or believe they should have learned, in their school history class, leading them to ask:

What isn’t taught in history class but should be?

So apparently we are in the endemic phase of this nonsense.

We have light at the end of the tunnel.

So what now?

Where do we go from here?

Normal seems like an outdated word.

How do we get back to normal though?

Is it even possible?

What are reaching back to?

Life pre-Covid.

Those were the days.

If only we could bring them back.

Redditor hetravelingsong wanted to discuss our new normal in this hopeful "endemic" phase. So they asked:

"What’s something random you miss about pre-COVID times?"

What do you believe?

Is there a GOD in the sky?

Is he guiding us and helping us?

Life is really hard. Why is that is a big entity is up there loving us?

Atheists have taken a lot of heat for what feels like shunning GOD.

What if they've been right all along?

Maybe let's take a listen and see what they really think.

Redditor __Jacob______ wanted to hear from the people who don't really believe all that "God" stuff. They asked:

"Atheists, what do you believe in?"

The list of what irritates me is endless.

I mean... breathing too loud or dust can set me off.

I'm a bit unstable, yes.

But I'm not alone.

So let's discuss.

Redditor Aburntbagel6 wanted to hear about all the times many of us just couldn't control our disdain. They asked:

"What never fails to piss you off?"
