The "Right" Click

Anyone familiar with computers knows what happens when you "right click" on the mouse; you get to see all the hidden options for a file. But what if there was a right click in life?

Reddit user Coast_2_Coast asked "What options would come up if you could 'right-click' people?"

Here are the creative replies.

Do I know you?

I'd hope nametags because I don't remember anyone's names

Under "properties", along with age, marital status, etc.

Friends in common, to see where you know them from.

No more arguing at bedtime

"Send to..." would be interesting

That would be amazing for parents. Right-click, Send to, Bed.

Relationships are hard

Asking for a friend

:(

Did you hear something?

Ignore

Yes. Ignore permanently-until-removed, or ignore-for-preset-duration would be great

"Other Permissions..."

Add to Contacts --- if this person has granted you permissions to do so, puts their email address / phone number / home address / etc. into your contact list.

Grant Permissions --- allow this person to access your information; also grant other permissions.

Snapshot --- record the thing this person is currently doing. Does not require permissions; can be used to document bad behavior.

Volume --- raise or lower your perception of this person's speech volume. Useful for that coworker who doesn't know how well their voice carries; or that person you're trying to make conversation with over loud music.

Block --- raises a hazy forcefield barrier between this person and you, preventing physical contact and muffling sound.

Have we met?

'Find related conversation...'

To find prior conversations you've had with or about the person.

It would save me a lot of embarrassment... "Nice to meet you, you must be ." "Nooo, I'm , we've met several times before..." /dies

Just in case

Or use the alternative meaning of snapshot, make a complete record of the person as they are now and revert them to that if anything goes wrong.

There's no way this could end badly

What about copy, then paste. Now you have 2 of them. Delete, removes them from your life. Shift + delete removes them from existence. Cut then paste, cut them out of existence and move them someplace new at the exact moment they were cut out. Example, door to door sales person or religious/political knocmer shows up. Cut, walk over to annoying neighbor's house, knock on their door, paste, run.

I need an adult

report.

I don't know to who but I'd imagine it would go to the developer.

Mum & Dad are getting a lot of notifications that they never wanted...

So tasty

Refresh

-a lemonade appears in the person's hand

Teleporter Alternative?

If you could right click yourself that would be amazing, who needs cars when you just right click then "send to: C:Windows/user/(insert your name here)/home"

There are few things more satisfying than a crisp $20 bill. Well, maybe a crisp $100 bill.

But twenty big ones can get you pretty far nonetheless.

Whether it's tucked firmly in a birthday card, passing from hand to hand after a knee-jerk sports bet, or going toward a useful tool, the old twenty dollar bill has been used for countless purposes.

I realize that school safety has been severely compromised and has been under dire scrutiny over the past decade and of course, it should be. And when I was a student, my safety was one of my greatest priorities but, some implemented rules under the guise of "safety" were and are... just plain ludicrous. Like who thinks up some of these ideas?

Redditor u/Animeking1108 wanted to discuss how the education system has ideas that sometimes are just more a pain in the butt than a daily enhancement... What was the dumbest rule your school enforced?

One of the golden rules of life? Doctors are merely human. They don't know everything and they make mistakes. That is why you always want to get another opinion. Things are constantly missed. That doesn't mean docs don't know what they're doing, they just aren't infallible. So make sure to ask questions, lots of them.

Redditor u/Gorgon_the_Dragon wanted to hear from doctors about why it is imperative we always get second and maybe third opinions by asking... Doctors of Reddit, what was the worse thing you've seen for a patient that another Doctor overlooked?

When we think about learning history, our first thought is usually sitting in our high school history class (or AP World History class if you're a nerd like me) being bored out of our minds. Unless again, you're a huge freaking nerd like me. But I think we all have the memory of the moment where we realized learning about history was kinda cool. And they usually start from one weird fact.

Here are a few examples of turning points in learning about history, straight from the keyboards of the people at AskReddit.

U/Tynoa2 asked: What's your favourite historical fact?
