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.

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".

People Divulge The Scariest Thing That's Ever Happened To Them

All of us have fears which some might call irrational.

Up to and including ghosts, witches, monsters.

But more often than not, reality can be far scarier than the supernatural.

And there are very few people indeed who don't have a memory of a moment when they were truly and genuinely scared.

And not by an otherworldly encounter, but by things that could quite literally happen to anyone.

Redditor GodhimselfUwU was curious to hear the scariest experiences people have lived through, leading them to ask:

"What’s the scariest non-supernatural thing that ever happened to you?"

Having to work for a living is hard work.

Some jobs come with difficulty and two extra sides of stress.

So the last thing people need is unwarranted hate.

I'm so glad I work from home. Writing alone.

I have issues with me, but that I can deal with.

I do hate internet issues.

But that is warranted.

Redditor PM_ME_URFOOD wanted to talk about the jobs where a ridiculous amount of vitriol is all part of a days work. They asked:

"What profession gets an unjustified amount of hate?"

People Explain Which Items In Life Should Always Be Free

Short of having a shopping addiction, no one actually likes spending money on stuff.

Why would you ever willingly give it away? It's your money!

Which might be why it feels so bad when you have to spend money of something that should be free from the beginning. People/ corporations are going to chase that cheddar, though, so there's little you can do besides complain, which frankly might be the best thing the internet is for.

The worst part of having breasts is Florida.

I didn't even say large breasts. Just breasts, any breasts. Florida and breasts are mortal enemies sworn to battle one another into oblivion until the end of days.
