Randomness is awesome because it's fun to keep people on their toes. Who cares what people think; be spontaneous just for the reactions.

LobotomizedThruMeEye asked: What is the weirdest thing that somebody has said to you out of the blue?

What if all your teeth were beans?

"What if we replaced all the beads in bean bags with teeth?"

SpartanSPI

You would get an "a** chewing."

willest0

Were you sitting on a bean bag at the time?

LobotomizedThruMeEye

Nope, it was completely out of the blue.

SpartanSPI

Obviously yes.

Got stopped on the streets of Nice by an old asian woman, who asked me 'Are you the dancer?'

To which I said 'Yes.'

She said she was a big fan, I thanked her.

I am not the dancer.

jackalope5225

So you're the human?

elgatodorado

Yes.

heatherthehuman

Uh thanks.

"I like your eyeballs."

UnlikelyReference

A good friend of mine was notorious for handing out very strange compliments where I remember we were at the comic book store once and he just stared at the cashier and said "You know *extends arm so it is barley touching the cashiers face* you have very nicely sculpted eye brows."

ChunkyMunky666

Everyone looks good in bright yellow pants, right?

A priest walked up to me and said: "you have a great figure for golf" and then walked away.

Welcome to the club.

Those damn ducks.

I had just gone for a run, and was in the apartment elevator. An old man in the elevator said 'i don't go for walks because there are ducks.' I was like 'yeah,' and then his wife was like 'there is nothing wrong with ducks!'

Anatidaephobia: the fear that somewhere, somehow, a duck is watching you.

SpyTrain_from_Canada

Not that there's anything wrong with that...

Someone drawing my blood during a blood drive asked if I was a Mormon. I was not. Neither was she. She didn't explain why she asked that. This was my only interaction with this human.

olemiss18

Maybe she was confusing Mormons with Jehovah's Witnesses, who believe the Bible prohibits donating blood? Still weird either way.

yourjacketthough

Another eyeball admirer.

"Can I lick your eye?" And then she did.

Greycupcake

Context please.

LobotomizedThruMeEye

In high school a girl I knew introduced her female friend. The friend looked at me (also female) and asked if she could lick my eye, which I replied to with utter confusion. A few moments of my stammering and her persistence, I challenged her with a yes. It was a mistake.

Nailed it.

I was shopping in a bookstore and an Asian woman comes up from behind me and starts talking to me.

I turn to see who this person is, and she says, "I'm sorry, I thought you were my son."

I am a white female with long hair. I later see her son who is about 7-years-old with short hair and is Asian.

OneCraft

I wish you would have said "I thought you were my Daddy."

Wowkesleymynamesucks

This is a great compliment tbh.

An old lady sitting at the table behind me in a coffee shop once tapped me on the shoulder and asked if I'd ever done radio, because evidently I have a wonderful speaking voice and enunciation. I was high for a week on that compliment.

Booji-Boy

People tell me I have a face for the radio!

mb1293

That is so sweet.

LobotomizedThruMeEye

Best one here! So cute.

bornwithatail

Just to raise eyebrows.

"What a cute kitty!"

I was walking my dog.

elemonated

And just how... old was this individual?

to_the_tenth_power

Like 45-55! Like a slightly older than middle aged woman thought I was walking a cat on a leash in New York City.

It wasn't even a residential area. I had taken my dog to work so we were in Chelsea.

elemonated

Ahaha I do that whenever I see a cute dog on the street, sometimes I'd just go "aw what a cute armadillo" and it either gives a laugh from the owner or a look of absolute confusion.

People Explain Which Lessons Aren't Taught In History Class But Should Be

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:

What isn’t taught in history class but should be?

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.

Redditor hetravelingsong wanted to discuss our new normal in this hopeful "endemic" phase. So they asked:

"What’s something random you miss about pre-COVID times?"

What do you believe?

Is there a GOD in the sky?

Is he guiding us and helping us?

Life is really hard. Why is that is a big entity is up there loving us?

Atheists have taken a lot of heat for what feels like shunning GOD.

What if they've been right all along?

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

Redditor __Jacob______ wanted to hear from the people who don't really believe all that "God" stuff. They asked:

"Atheists, what do you believe in?"

The list of what irritates me is endless.

I mean... breathing too loud or dust can set me off.

I'm a bit unstable, yes.

But I'm not alone.

So let's discuss.

Redditor Aburntbagel6 wanted to hear about all the times many of us just couldn't control our disdain. They asked:

"What never fails to piss you off?"
