"Is there an airport nearby, or was that just my heart taking off?"

The art of the pick up can be cringe-worthy. Desperation for a date can lead to people saying strange things. It could be to get a laugh out of a potential partner, or a genuinely bad attempt at flirting.

Redditor u/OGVenon123 asked people, "What is the worst pick up line that you have heard/used?" And the lines that were shared ranged from funny to downright disgusting.

10. A fair exchange

"I was at a concert and I overheard a girl ask a guy, 'Hey, can I borrow your lighter?' 'Sure, here you go. Can I borrow your number?' 'Sure, here you go.' That actually worked?!?!?"


9. Old school

"'You know that dress you're wearing would look even better laying on the floor next to my bed' said to me on the early 80's"


8. I think that's charming

"'You look like trash. Let me take you out.' Said by me to the woman who is now my wife."


7. Impressive, but disgusting

"No ****, about 12 years ago, a buddy and I sat down at a dive bar. He looked at the chick next to him and just said 'Wanna bang?'.

She looked him up and down briefly and went 'Yea... alright, let me finish this beer first.'

It was impressive and disgusting."


6. Don't use Honest Abe's name in vain


"Are you Abraham Lincoln?

Because you're causing an uprising down south ."


5. This line caught my interest

"are you a bank loan? cause you got my interest"


4. Does this work?

"I'm a woman. when I see a guy with a cool shirt I say nice **** as an opener."


3. TMI

"My friend was once hit with:

Do you work at Subway? Because I'm pretty sure you gave me a $5 footlong."


2. I want to hold your arm

"A friend of mine has a prosthetic arm because he was afraid girls wouldn't like him if he just had a stub for an arm. He walks up to a girl, says 'Hey, can you hold something for me?' The girl says, 'What do you need me to hold?' Then, my friend says 'My hand...' as his prosthetic arm falls off. The girl picked up his arm and said 'This arm?' Now they are married."


1. Absolutely not


"I **** my pants can I get in yours?"

Y'all know that one Hannah Montana song? “Everybody makes mistakes! Everybody has those days!" That's the song I sing to myself every time I accidentally burn myself while making ramen. It comforts me to know, however, that there are a lot of worse mistakes out there than some spilled ramen. Who knew?

When I was younger, it seemed every adult believed that you couldn't swim for several hours after eating. Why did they all believe this? I fought them on this all the time, by the way. I shouldn't have had to, just because I'd eaten some barbecue during a pool party. Guess what, though? That belief is unfounded.

As much as we're not supposed to feel satisfaction upon observing the struggles of other people, it can be hard to resist a silent, internal fist pump when some blunder occurs immediately after we tried to help the person prevent it.

One of the most upsetting aspects of the Covid-19 pandemic––which is saying a lot, frankly––is the number of people who have been so affected by misinformation and disinformation. You know the ones to which I refer: These are the people who are convinced the virus is a hoax despite the lives it's claimed and the devastation it has wrought on society at large. Disinformation kills––there are stories of people who remained convinced that Covid-19 is a hoax even while intubated in the ICU, even up to their last breath.

After Redditor asked the online community, "Doctors of Reddit, what happened when you diagnosed a Covid-19 denier with Covid-19?" doctors and other medical professionals shared these rather unsettling stories.
