Cheaters never prosper. That's a lie! Cheaters often win and often walk away with no remorse and sometimes that's ok. Life is one long, arduous game of survival. And more often than not it's imperative to find your way around by maybe cutting an edge out for yourself. When you know a few things about the outcome prior to the finish you can handle the terrain with a touch more ease. And I'm not ashamed to championing that!

Redditor u/SunZuu wanted everyone to fess up and admit to a thing or three by asking... What are some cheat codes you've found in the game of life?


You're Saved!

When my daughter was little and still believed band-aids cured things, one time she had a belly ache so I put one on her belly and it made her feel better. Power of placebos! tres_chill

I think this advertiser was working on the assumption that most of his consumers did not know what placebo meant. Of course, either way it could still work.

when my wife was raising her kids on her own her little boy was having nightmares about a monster. She asked him which of his stuffed toys was the strongest and the toughest. He indicated his stuffed dog. She then told him to put the dog on the edge of the bed and that he would protect him from the monsters. It worked like a charm. At this point I realized that some magic is real. Cheeseand0nions

Run don't walk! 

When I was in my old 500+ person building, I kept a stack of papers on my desk. When I was bored, or got tired of sitting down, I'd get up, grab my stack of papers and walk around. I called them my "walking papers" and did this for months. Got a lot of head nods and not one question the entire time. People always assumed I was on an important mission, but nope. Not in the least.

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:

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.

What do you believe?

Is there a GOD in the sky?

What if they've been right all along?

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