People Share The Most Legendary Comment Threads They've Seen

We all can admit that some subject matter makes for much better comment boards than others. Here are some comment threads that are of the legendary status.

myawesomeself asks:

Reddit, what is a legendary comment thread that everyone should read?

Wonder what their input was

In this thread a guy mistakenly asks the fantasy football board for relationship advice.

"Make the drop. Next gf will be better ROS."

It seems like that is pretty much established, no questions asked

That one where a whole fitness community started fighting over how many days in a week there are. It wasn't on reddit, and it's about 8ish years old i think?

"If I go every other day I will be at the gym 4-5 times a week, is that over training?

I typically work out for 60-90 minutes, I push my self and raise the weight each week."

Not what he meant

Clubbers of Reddit, what are you tips for People new to clubbing?

Obvious he meant dance clubs but people have him advice on seal clubbing. Some advice actually works for both scenarios, one of the funniest threads I've read.

"Theres nothing to it really, just a few pointers.

  1. Have fun, everything comes down to this. If ur having fun, nothing else really matters.
  2. Go in a group. Its more fun. Other people will see you having fun, and will be more willing to talk to you. You will also have some stories to share.
  3. Dress accordingly. You are going to get sweaty. Sometimes there is spilage. You dont want to ruin your best shirt.
  4. The size of the club doesnt matter. You might be able to get more variety with a bigger club, but smaller clubs are more personal and can be just as much fun.
  5. Dont just watch. Get involved. Talk to people, dance. Theres nithing worse than being the guy who just stands around when everyone else is having fun.
  6. Dance. This deserves repeating. Many guys go out hunting. But if you have fun, and dance, they will come to you.
  7. If given the chance, take it. Dont hope and wait for something better. Enjoy yourself. Lift up your arms, and pound that seal with your club."

This sounds like a juicy story

TIFU by stuffing my face with edibles before dinner with my wife's parents

Had me in f** tears

"The food is too spicy, only to realise we had not eaten anything yet hahahah"

Cross cultural for the win

I loved the one where an American was going to Ireland and wanted to know if it was a good idea to give Snickers bars as gifts to the locals. The responses were a hoot.

"American here. This thread just convinced me to visit Ireland the next time I go to Europe. Will bring Snickers, potatoes and freedom to disperse amongst the locals"

A stress log sounds like a great idea

This one blew up massive a few years ago, but didn't quite get the same longevity that many other of these big posts get. I remember it as the user is a reddit friend of mine, and I was really happy to see her get such a positive response.

College professor has class keep stress log and changed her entire teaching/grading approach from it

"Thank you sooooo much. I work 28 days a month and most of my shifts are 10 hours at least, some are 14. I am 8 classes away from graduation and the writing requirements on me right now are ridiculous. I can't write 30 pages in one week. I can barely take my dog out to poop when he needs to go. Thanks for being an understanding human being. I'm close to dropping out and I'm 145 credits into my 157 credit degree. I'm right f** there and I JUST CAN'T DO IT ANYMORE! I CAN'T I'M DONE! I've been crying for three days now and I don't know why, I just cant deal with the stress anymore I guess."

Now that's entertainment

Jenny the cheating wife .... but it's been removed. I followed it live knowing it was bulls* but what a rollercoaster!

"And Cable guy gets no credit. Sad day."

Great story!

That one time r/legaladvice diagnosed someone with Carbon Monoxide poisoning and saved his life.

"This post was my first thought when my landlord informed me he was having a CO detector installed in the flat. Zero complaints."

Yes!

Please don't ask me how I managed to take this picture... http://i.imgur.com/TAXdG.jpg

This will give you a good laugh

TIFU by pretending to not know what a potato is to enrage my girlfriend's parents

"She doesn't really seem like a keeper if she can't handle a good ol' fashioned potato joke."

It's a party!

"You had my curiosity, but now you have my attention."

You know this is juicy

When My 16 Year Old Sister Tells My Mom, "I want to move in with my boyfriend" at dinner.

"two families in stressful tensions, nearly coming to blows, fighting for days over an unplanned pregnancy. and it's the funniest s* read all week."

Big turn of events

The one by the mormon guy talking about his mission in Mexico Brazil, where he and his partner walked into a bad area and made the mistake of going down a road where gang members started to follow them, and also approached them from the front, boxing them in. As they got close he noticed some of them had Wu Tang symbols and such, so when they walked up to him, the first thing he said was "you guys like Wu Tang?" What followed was a high stakes Wu Tang trivia challenge, and being a big fan he knew everything. So instead of getting robbed and killed, the mormons were made honorary members of the gang.

"If you're going to visit Brazil, get up to speed on your Wu-Tang just in case."

Hilarious!

Steven Seagal's IAmA. A hilarious exercise in character dismantlement by Reddit.

"Hi Mr. Seagal,

Is it true that you punched John Leguizamo during rehearsal while you were filming a movie? If so, why did you do it?"

Roasting is delicious

Just yesterday i read one of the most brutal comments in reddit history from the F*it roast

"If they don't delete the account you're not doing it right."

The exercise program

I'm really surprised no one has mentioned the hundred push up thread. I think I literally fell out of my chair laughing when I read it. Especially when it got to eating 100 treadmills.https://www.reddit.com/r/science/comments/6nz1k/got_six_weeks_try_the_hundred_push_ups_training/.

"S*, I break a sweat eating a Big Mac."

Interesting approach

The one where the guy posted answers before there were questions. Edit -

I eat just about anything, but can't say I'm a fan of okra. Might it have to do with the way it is typically prepared, at least in my experience? It's slimy. It shouldn't be. It would probably taste better fried. But I have friends from the South who swear it is heaven on a plate.

But there's more than food that's disgusting. Like... why do people idolize Joe Exotic, the Tiger King? He's a sexual predator and a criminal. I know we all needed something to watch during lockdown, but damn. Don't tattoo his face on your body!

People shared their opinions after Redditor blackismyfavcolorlol asked the online community,

"What's that one disgusting thing that everybody except you seems to like?"

How do you tell if someone has a crush on you?

It's not always so easy, and many of us will fumble our way through it. Perhaps our only experience with navigating crushes comes from John Hughes movies (which I don't recommend following).

Oh, and while this isn't a Hughes movie, I would not recommend doing to one's crushes what the nerds do in the terrible Revenge of the Nerds.

Looking for advice? Look no further. You can thank Redditor chaitea_lexax who asked the online community,

"What is a dead giveaway that someone has a crush on you?"

There is a lot to hate about the world today. It seems like around every corner, awful news foretelling the end of the world is playing on every screen.

And we are expected to live in the middle of this? 2020 saw the rise of the term "doom scrolling" because the news about the world was so grim.
