You gotta hand it to humans--find an outlet to be funny and creative, and they'll find it.

When wireless companies allowed you to start creating your own funny wifi names, creatives took the bait.


u/K4NZ0 asked:

What's the best Wi-Fi name you've seen?

Here were some of those names.

A Little Too Telling

"Crack Shack" which wasn't exactly creative but we later found out that the owners were arrested for selling drugs.

I'm All Signals

My younger brother set his mobile hotspot to "Hot Singles in Your Area" and I'm never gonna get over it.

We're not allowed to have our own routers on campus, so I named mine AT&T Mobile Hotspot.

Ping Ping!

For the longest time, I had my phones hotspot name as 'Police Surveillance Tricycle'.

Turns out, its a good way to get some people paranoid and have others amused over the whole thing when having it active during classes.

One of my son's (probably about 12 or 13 at the time) friend's father set added a Wi-Fi channel named "Free Internet Porn" when his son had a birthday sleep-over. The father then sat outside the area where they were sleeping and listened to them spend hours trying to figure out how to connect. My son called me that night asking how to connect to a Wi-Fi channel when you don't know the password because his friend forgot their password. I told him the only way was to guess. Evidently it kept them busy and out of trouble all night!

Grandma's Got Jokes

When my grandma was getting her WiFi set up, we asked her what she'd say to people who asked for her WiFi. She said that she would tell them to "Go to Hell", so that's now her password. So whenever people ask for the WiFi password, she tells them, "Go to Hell".

The world is a beautiful place. From natural scenery like the Himalayan Mountains in Asia to the appearance of the Aurora Borealis at various times, awe-inspiring sights are never too hard to find.

Every country can boast a few different areas of jaw-dropping beauty. Some offer more gorgeous scenery than others. It makes us wonder, what makes one country more beautiful than another?

Is it the variety and sheer number of beautiful sights or is it the magnificence of one area? And what is the prettiest country in the world?

Curious to find out, Redditor Dream4Cats asked:

"In your opinion, whats the prettiest country?"

People Share Times They Knew Something Was Off About Someone But Couldn't Prove It

There are just some people who always trigger the spidey senses.

The problem is that we don't trust our instincts enough.

How many people have just left you feeling... ill at ease?

Probably more than we care to admit.

We don't want to be wrong about someone.

That is the main problem. Then we'd be embarrassed.

That feeling changes to relief when we see them on the news or a Dateline NBC episode.

Redditor Lucky_Solution7999 wanted to hear about the people who inexplicably rubbed us the wrong way. They asked:

"Hey reddit, what is one time you knew something was off about someone but couldn't prove it?"

People Break Down The Things Only Someone Who's Been Poor Will Understand

When you have no money, you have no other choice than finding ways to survive.

It can be sort of like a club.

Only people who understand being poor will recognize other poor people.

There are things you learn about stretching every penny that some will never be able to comprehend.

Of course right now in the throws of this ridiculous inflation problem, pennies are useless.

But that is a different conversation.

Let's make some notes about lacking funds.

Redditor cannonstotheleftofus wanted to hear from people who have struggled with the coin. They asked:

"What’s something people don’t know unless they’ve been poor?"
