[rebelmouse-image 18357060 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

[rebelmouse-image 18357061 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

[rebelmouse-image 18348094 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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."

Very useful

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

[rebelmouse-image 18345773 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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

Big turn of events

[rebelmouse-image 18349250 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

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!

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

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."

Your home should be sanctuary, which is to say that we hope that nothing bad ever happens once we move in. Unfortunately, life doesn't always work out that way, and sometimes things happen that unnerve the hell out of us.

Is there anything more creepy than being alone at home... only to get the feeling that you're not alone at all? What if you were being watched?! It's the stuff of nightmares, isn't it? And I haven't even touched on the possibility of paranormal activity yet...

People Describe The Moment They Realized They've Been Doing Something Wrong For Years

It can be very embarrassing when you pronounce words wrong. Let's face it, the English language is super complicated, especially if you're learning it for the first time. You can't always trust yourself to pronounce things phonetically either because of all the different rules!

Recently, a relative pronounced the word "epitome" like "epi-tome." They were embarrassed when I corrected them. I told them that it wasn't a big deal, though they did note that they love that word, have used it for a long time, and that no one corrected them until that moment...

Ouch.

People told their stories after Redditor adeptwarrior asked the online community,

"What's an 'oh sh*t' moment where you realised you've been doing something the wrong way for years?"
