It's hard to classify what exactly a "d*ck move" is. Really, it could be anything. The only consistency between all recorded d*ck moves in history is the way you feel after it's been done. There's a sense of revolting anger, something that seethes in your gut, and makes you want to say, "Not cool bro."

Fortunately, we can count on the internet to help come to a uniform decision.


Reddit user, u/Apple-Acid, wanted people to dictate what counts as a d*ck move when they asked:

What is something we can all agree on being a "d*ck move" ?

Decide: Free or Deadline?

Not paying someone back or being being difficult when you owe money to someone.

Yeemo

Don't ever give out personal loans. Give out one-time gifts without expectation of repayment. If they pay you back, then you might gift again in the future. Otherwise, it's a one-time thing.

MoobyTheGoldenSock

Just Let Them Off. Be Polite.

Giphy

Getting on the train before letting other passengers get off the train first.

Same for the elevator. I was going down the elevator once. This one isn't too busy, but occasionally there will be someone waiting to get on when I get off or vice versa, but it's like 1/20 uses. Anyway, I'm going down and the doors open and this older, maybe 60's or 70's-aged lady literally has her face at the door, waiting to get on. Startled me a bit, TBH, because she was like right square in the doorway. She moved off to the side a bit to let me off.

Your Time Is Not More Valuable Than Anyone Else's

Cutting in line when there's no emergency

NotWithstandingNick

Although I don't call people out on it, I'm always glad when there is someone else in line who isn't as timid and does so.

Like, Really? You KNOW That's Not Yours.

Taking someone else's lunch from the breakroom fridge.

DeathSpiral321

Had a guy I worked with who was notorious for this. One day he sees me in the break room and goes "I didn't know that was yours, I took a drink from that."

I figured I'd teach him a lesson, so I said "you know I have herpes, right?" He got all bug-eyed and freaked out. Then I thought, I don't want him spreading rumors about me, so I said "I don't. But if I did, you'd be screwed. That's why you don't do that."

If There's No Room, Make Room

Taking up multiple seats on public transit when you can easily sit in one.

(Caveat, it's fine if it's mostly empty.)

This is the worst. Especially if it's someone who put their bag on the seat next to them. I get it, you want your personal space, but we're all in this sardine can together, so we might as well compromise.

You Can't Have Selective Eyesight

Beating another driver to a parking space, even though they were there first (with blinkers on) about to take it.

Back2Bach

Like in the movie Fried Green Tomatoes:

"Face it, lady, we're younger and faster."

rams car

"Face it, girls, I'm older and I have more insurance."

pjabrony

A few friends and I were eating. Bill came to the table, we all laid out our tip money, and my friends boyfriend started pulling money out of the tip for his meal....The look on my friends faces...

XmagnumoperaX

I hope you stopped him.

Standing up to get your bags and crowd the gate door because youre Mr. Bigshot just after flight attendants told everyone to stay seated so medical personnel could evac the guy at the back of the plane who just had a heart attack in front of his kids.

Haven't We Grown Beyond This As A Species?

It's The Awkwardness That Keeps Money In Your Wallet

Ordering expensive food and/or drinks while out with friends and that guy says at the end "let's split it all evenly"

slut4plums

My wife has a lot of pretty wealthy friends, and we'll go out to group birthday dinners with them sometimes. This is especially a problem if we do tapas because there are a few guys that will just order a sh-t ton of food and expensive plates, expensive wine, and then expect to just split it evenly with everyone. My wife just tells them f-ck that and pays for what we ate. It's awkward.

Conspiracy theories are beliefs that there are covert powers that be changing the course of history for their own benefits. It's how we see the rise of QAnon conspiracies and people storming the capital.

Why do people fall for them? Well some research has looked into the reasons for that.

The Association for Psychological Science published a paper that reviewed some of the research:

"This research suggests that people may be drawn to conspiracy theories when—compared with nonconspiracy explanations—they promise to satisfy important social psychological motives that can be characterized as epistemic (e.g., the desire for understanding, accuracy, and subjective certainty), existential (e.g., the desire for control and security), and social (e.g., the desire to maintain a positive image of the self or group)."

Whatever the motivations may be, we wanted to know which convoluted stories became apart of peoples consciousness enough for them to believe it.

I hate ghosts, even if it's Casper. My life is already stressful enough. I don't need to creeped out by spirits from the beyond. Shouldn't they be resting and basking in the glow of the great beyond instead of menacing the rest of us?

The paranormal seems to be consistently in unrest, which sounds like death isn't any more fun or tranquil than life. So much for something to look forward to.

Some ghosts just like to scare it up. It's not always like "Ghosthunters" the show.

Redditor u/Murky-Increase4705 wanted to hear about all the times we've faced some hauntings that left us shook, by asking:

Reddit, what are your creepy encounters with something that you are convinced was paranormal?

A lot of talk going on about women's bodies, isn't there?

Not necessarily with women front and center as part of the conversation, unfortunately.
