School leaves us marked for life.

We learn more life lessons than we realize.

It takes a little time and distance to look back and assess the insanity that we all endured and survived.

Redditor agalaxyiguess1969 wanted everyone to give us a few tidbits about past school experiences that were on the "odd" side by asking...

What was the wildest thing that happened in your school?



"A 9th-grade kid drank half a liter of moonshine and nearly died from alcohol intoxication. Got taken to hospital, recovered and was expelled. This happened a month after the school year has started, so we barely even got to know him."Sinister_Fish42

After Graduation. 

"I guess this happened after graduation but we had this kid who's life after graduating was just a big ol wild ride."

"I was on the swim team in school, and this kid was on the team with me. He was FAST, but never really meshed with the team. Just a weird mix of weirdness and cockiness but not a bad guy. After he graduated, he was the first from our school to go to straight to a really great program in our service and has a promising career ahead of him."

"After graduating that program he was sent to a really awesome location to work. Then he gets in trouble for making, using, and distributing drugs and gets sent to jail for a few years."

"I obviously don't hear much about him while he's in jail until one of my swim team friends shows me something another friend sent him. Our friend had gotten out of jail early for good behavior and had started doing gay porn. Nothing wrong with that, but obviously a big change in life direction and it was a gay for pay type of thing."

"Then he kind of falls off the radar again for a while, until a different friend from my swim team sends me another article and I can tell its him right away. Now he's in jail."



"Ever had a fire drill mid assembly?" SquidCultist002

The Pool....

"At my school we didn't have a pool but the city pool was a few streets over and we would often meet the teachers over there at the start of the period. When I was in year 9 (14 year old I'm pretty sure) one of our year groups classes went missing on the way. Turns out some of them had pulled the rest of the class aside and forced them all to take K2 legal high (if you don't know what that is it's a really dodgy substance that the nz government thought was ok in 2015 ish and was a legal high. Some kids had hallucinations and they all got taken home. Crazy wild to finally find out what happened."The-Marblecow

6th grade: .....


"6th grade: Someone got alcohol poisoning and had to be rushed to the hospital. They hid their alcohol in a Gatorade bottle 9th: Somone made a paper towel noose that had the n word written on it. Some pretty nasty fights in the cafeteria, in bathrooms and some in classrooms 10th: Someone had a seizure 11th: A girl knocked one of our resource officers flat on his butt."

"Can't think of anymore but I know something will happen soon."MyChemicalBoysPanic

One of the guys....

"One of the guys I graduated with tried to do a backflip over a fire pit the night before graduation. Landed face first in it and melted half his face. So all his day of pictures had his face semi melted and held together with plastic. Alcohol was involved of course. Seems to have healed pretty good though from picts now."MTAlphawolf

Parents Onboard. 

"A kid was busted for growing weed in his closet, but he was using a really sophisticated and well put together hydroponics system. His parents were totally on board with his project too."Anodracs

Med School.


"A guy in my school tried to copy an exam from the dude behind him, was turning around and tore his spermatic cord in the process."

"Ironically, this is in med school."hzrrrow

The senior prank......

"The senior prank. All the seniors pulled their money to buy a three foot dildo, covered it in lube, and glued it to the ground. We got a picture of our school resource officer trying to pull it off. I think Chance the Rapper tweeted about it (not 100% sure) and if you google my school, that's the first thing that comes up."

"If we're talking middle school, the same year as the prank, a middle schooler put some of his "special sauce" in a crepe during a cooking competition- ie he came in it (and pissed in it). The teacher that was judging the competition actually ate it (she didn't know what was inside). I think she ended up pressing charges, and the whole reason the kids involved got caught was because they posted about it on Snapchat... middle schoolers aren't the brightest." juliasaige

The Stench of It.


"My middle school was arranged so that there was one long main hallway that the classrooms all branched off of. On the last day of school before summer break, 5 boys got the grand idea to simultaneously set off stink bombs in the main hall after the last class was dismissed. It was absolute pandemonium. The stench was so bad that kids were throwing up, having asthma attacks, screaming, crying, and rushing the doors to try and get fresh air. Needless to say, those 5 boys got in A LOT of trouble."PartTimeKhajiit

Dangerous Minds...

"We had a kid pull a knife in a fight, then proceed to get his butt kicked in. If you are going to throw away your life to attempted murder charges, you ought to at least win the damn fight."

"Then a couple years later a dozen or so kids got busted for black tar heroine. Dumb drug to do, way dumber to deal it on a military base."goodnt-guy

The Favorite. 

"My history teacher was showing us YouTube videos, and while searching how to remove the ads opened his search history. No one would have seen anything if a guy in front of the class hadn't yelled "PORNTUBE" so loud that the classes around us heard it."

"The teacher was red from embarrassment and asked us how to delete it, so we spent the rest of the class showing him how to clean his search history and how to use incognito mod."

"The entire schooled talked about that for a couple days as he was everyone's favorite teacher but nothing happened to him that I know of."Belou99


"A kid jumped over the railing on the second floor and hit his head or something just right so that he was instantly dead. He also landed on top of another student and ended up paralyzing her either from the neck down or the waist down, I don't remember."omglookawhale

The Star.

"We found out that one of our teachers is also a porn star."dangernoodles628

Caught on Camera. 

"In middle school, this kid kept hiding his poop in the bathroom ceiling. The ceiling had those foamy removable tiles. One day, cameras were installed and he was caught because of the time frame in which he visited the bathroom. I'm not sure what his punishment was."BasedRocker

The Wine Grab. 

"In catholic school, they left the storage closet that had all of the communion wine in it open. So a handful of us got in there and stole some bottles. It's essentially a very low alcohol red wine, but we were teenagers and free alcohol was free alcohol. I ran my bottle out and stashed it in my car, but one of the other guys left his in his backpack, walked into math class and dropped his back onto the tiled floor, shattering the bottle. Needless to say it leaked wine all over the floor and the teacher freaked out, causing the kid to freak out and he ran and locked himself in one of the bathrooms."

"They had to call his parents into the school to convince him to come out because he was panicking. The funniest part was, there was a freshman in the bathroom when he locked himself in there and he wouldn't let the kid leave, so it was like a borderline hostage situation for 30-45 minutes."

"The guy was typically a good kid, so he had to do 2 days ISS, and fortunately he didn't rat on anyone else."JudgementalChair


"The principal got caught having a affair with the assistant principal on school grounds in the janitor closet. I don't know who, some said a fellow student while others say the janitor did and reported it."IDevilsAdvocateI


"There was a guy on the football field with a gun headed for the school. This was before school shooting became a big thing, and the principal let us run to our cars if we thought we could make it. Luckily, the guy had a muzzle loader and didn't know how to use it."ladies-pmme-nudespls



"A guy I knew when I was a kid was playing with fireworks and accidentally burned down half the school, he will probably have to pay for the rest of his life."Azhz96

Now these were some serious scandals and experiences.

Do you have similar experiences? Let us know in the comments!

People Reveal The Weirdest Thing About Themselves

Reddit user Isitjustmedownhere asked: 'Give an example; how weird are you really?'

Let's get one thing straight: no one is normal. We're all weird in our own ways, and that is actually normal.

Of course, that doesn't mean we don't all have that one strange trait or quirk that outweighs all the other weirdness we possess.

For me, it's the fact that I'm almost 30 years old, and I still have an imaginary friend. Her name is Sarah, she has red hair and green eyes, and I strongly believe that, since I lived in India when I created her and there were no actual people with red hair around, she was based on Daphne Blake from Scooby-Doo.

I also didn't know the name Sarah when I created her, so that came later. I know she's not really there, hence the term 'imaginary friend,' but she's kind of always been around. We all have conversations in our heads; mine are with Sarah. She keeps me on task and efficient.

My mom thinks I'm crazy that I still have an imaginary friend, and writing about her like this makes me think I may actually be crazy, but I don't mind. As I said, we're all weird, and we all have that one trait that outweighs all the other weirdness.

Redditors know this all too well and are eager to share their weird traits.

It all started when Redditor Isitjustmedownhere asked:

"Give an example; how weird are you really?"

Monsters Under My Bed

"My bed doesn't touch any wall."

"Edit: I guess i should clarify im not rich."

– Practical_Eye_3600

"Gosh the monsters can get you from any angle then."

– bikergirlr7

"At first I thought this was a flex on how big your bedroom is, but then I realized you're just a psycho 😁"

– zenOFiniquity8

Can You See Why?

"I bought one of those super-powerful fans to dry a basement carpet. Afterwards, I realized that it can point straight up and that it would be amazing to use on myself post-shower. Now I squeegee my body with my hands, step out of the shower and get blasted by a wide jet of room-temp air. I barely use my towel at all. Wife thinks I'm weird."

– KingBooRadley


"In 1990 when I was 8 years old and bored on a field trip, I saw a black Oldsmobile Cutlass driving down the street on a hot day to where you could see that mirage like distortion from the heat on the road. I took a “snapshot” by blinking my eyes and told myself “I wonder how long I can remember this image” ….well."

– AquamarineCheetah

"Even before smartphones, I always take "snapshots" by blinking my eyes hoping I'll remember every detail so I can draw it when I get home. Unfortunately, I may have taken so much snapshots that I can no longer remember every detail I want to draw."

"Makes me think my "memory is full.""

– Reasonable-Pirate902

Same, Same

"I have eaten the same lunch every day for the past 4 years and I'm not bored yet."

– OhhGoood

"How f**king big was this lunch when you started?"

– notmyrealnam3

Not Sure Who Was Weirder

"Had a line cook that worked for us for 6 months never said much. My sous chef once told him with no context, "Baw wit da baw daw bang daw bang diggy diggy." The guy smiled, left, and never came back."

– Frostygrunt


"I pace around my house for hours listening to music imagining that I have done all the things I simply lack the brain capacity to do, or in some really bizarre scenarios, I can really get immersed in these imaginations sometimes I don't know if this is some form of schizophrenia or what."

– RandomSharinganUser

"I do the same exact thing, sometimes for hours. When I was young it would be a ridiculous amount of time and many years later it’s sort of trickled off into almost nothing (almost). It’s weird but I just thought it’s how my brain processes sh*t."

– Kolkeia

If Only

"Even as an adult I still think that if you are in a car that goes over a cliff; and right as you are about to hit the ground if you jump up you can avoid the damage and will land safely. I know I'm wrong. You shut up. I'm not crying."

– ShotCompetition2593

Pet Food

"As a kid I would snack on my dog's Milkbones."

– drummerskillit

"Haha, I have a clear memory of myself doing this as well. I was around 3 y/o. Needless to say no one was supervising me."

– Isitjustmedownhere

"When I was younger, one of my responsibilities was to feed the pet fish every day. Instead, I would hide under the futon in the spare bedroom and eat the fish food."

– -GateKeep-

My Favorite Subject

"I'm autistic and have always had a thing for insects. My neurotypical best friend and I used to hang out at this local bar to talk to girls, back in the late 90s. One time he claimed that my tendency to circle conversations back to insects was hurting my game. The next time we went to that bar (with a few other friends), he turned and said sternly "No talking about bugs. Or space, or statistics or other bullsh*t but mainly no bugs." I felt like he was losing his mind over nothing."

"It was summer, the bar had its windows open. Our group hit it off with a group of young ladies, We were all chatting and having a good time. I was talking to one of these girls, my buddy was behind her facing away from me talking to a few other people."

"A cloudless sulphur flies in and lands on little thing that holds coasters."

"Cue Jordan Peele sweating gif."

"The girl notices my tension, and asks if I am looking at the leaf. "Actually, that's a lepidoptera called..." I looked at the back of my friend's head, he wasn't looking, "I mean a butterfly..." I poked it and it spread its wings the girl says "oh that's a BUG?!" and I still remember my friend turning around slowly to look at me with chastisement. The ONE thing he told me not to do."

"I was 21, and was completely not aware that I already had a rep for being an oddball. It got worse from there."

– Phormicidae

*Teeth Chatter*

"I bite ice cream sometimes."


"That's how I am with popsicles. My wife shudders every single time."


Never Speak Of This

"I put ice in my milk."


"You should keep that kind of thing to yourself. Even when asked."

– We-R-Doomed

"There's some disturbing sh*t in this thread, but this one takes the cake."

– RatonaMuffin

More Than Super Hearing

"I can hear the television while it's on mute."

– Tira13e

"What does it say to you, child?"

– Mama_Skip


"I put mustard on my omelettes."

– Deleted User


– NotCrustOr-filling

Evened Up

"Whenever I say a word and feel like I used a half of my mouth more than the other half, I have to even it out by saying the word again using the other half of my mouth more. If I don't do it correctly, that can go on forever until I feel it's ok."

"I do it silently so I don't creep people out."

– LesPaltaX

"That sounds like a symptom of OCD (I have it myself). Some people with OCD feel like certain actions have to be balanced (like counting or making sure physical movements are even). You should find a therapist who specializes in OCD, because they can help you."

– MoonlightKayla

I totally have the same need for things to be balanced! Guess I'm weird and a little OCD!

Experiencing death is a fascinating and frightening idea.

Who doesn't want to know what is waiting for us on the other side?

But so many of us want to know and then come back and live a little longer.

It would be so great to be sure there is something else.

But the whole dying part is not that great, so we'll have to rely on other people's accounts.

Redditor AlaskaStiletto wanted to hear from everyone who has returned to life, so they asked:

"Redditors who have 'died' and come back to life, what did you see?"


Happy Good Vibes GIF by Major League SoccerGiphy

"My dad's heart stopped when he had a heart attack and he had to be brought back to life. He kept the paper copy of the heart monitor which shows he flatlined. He said he felt an overwhelming sensation of peace, like nothing he had felt before."



"I had surgical complications in 2010 that caused a great deal of blood loss. As a result, I had extremely low blood pressure and could barely stay awake. I remember feeling like I was surrounded by loved ones who had passed. They were in a circle around me and I knew they were there to guide me onwards. I told them I was not ready to go because my kids needed me and I came back."

"My nurse later said she was afraid she’d find me dead every time she came into the room."

"It took months, and blood transfusions, but I recovered."


Take Me Back

"Overwhelming peace and happiness. A bright airy and floating feeling. I live a very stressful life. Imagine finding out the person you have had a crush on reveals they have the same feelings for you and then you win the lotto later that day - that was the feeling I had."

"I never feared death afterward and am relieved when I hear of people dying after suffering from an illness."



The Light Minnie GIF by (G)I-DLEGiphy

"I had a heart surgery with near-death experience, for me at least (well the possibility that those effects are caused by morphine is also there) I just saw black and nothing else but it was warm and I had such inner peace, its weird as I sometimes still think about it and wish this feeling of being so light and free again."


This is why I hate surgery.

You just never know.



"More of a near-death experience. I was electrocuted. I felt like I was in a deep hole looking straight up in the sky. My life flashed before me. Felt sad for my family, but I had a deep sense of peace."



"Nursing in the ICU, we’ve had people try to die on us many times during the years, some successfully. One guy stood out to me. His heart stopped. We called a code, are working on him, and suddenly he comes to. We hadn’t vented him yet, so he was able to talk, and he started screaming, 'Don’t let them take me, don’t let them take me, they are coming,' he was scared and yelling."

"Then he yelled a little more, as we tried to calm him down, he screamed, 'No, No,' and gestured towards the end of the bed, and died again. We didn’t get him back. It was seriously creepy. We called his son to tell him the news, and the son said basically, 'Good, he was an SOB.'”



"My sister died and said it was extremely peaceful. She said it was very loud like a train station and lots of talking and she was stuck in this area that was like a curtain with lots of beautiful colors (colors that you don’t see in real life according to her) a man told her 'He was sorry, but she had to go back as it wasn’t her time.'"


"I had a really similar experience except I was in an endless garden with flowers that were colors I had never seen before. It was quiet and peaceful and a woman in a dress looked at me, shook her head, and just said 'Not yet.' As I was coming back, it was extremely loud, like everyone in the world was trying to talk all at once. It was all very disorienting but it changed my perspective on life!"


The Fog

"I was in a gray fog with a girl who looked a lot like a young version of my grandmother (who was still alive) but dressed like a pioneer in the 1800s she didn't say anything but kept pulling me towards an opening in the wall. I kept refusing to go because I was so tired."

"I finally got tired of her nagging and went and that's when I came to. I had bled out during a c-section and my heart could not beat without blood. They had to deliver the baby and sew up the bleeders. refill me with blood before they could restart my heart so, like, at least 12 minutes gone."


Through the Walls

"My spouse was dead for a couple of minutes one miserable night. She maintains that she saw nothing, but only heard people talking about her like through a wall. The only thing she remembers for absolute certain was begging an ER nurse that she didn't want to die."

"She's quite alive and well today."


Well let's all be happy to be alive.

It seems to be all we have.

Man's waist line

Trying to lose weight is a struggle understood by many people regardless of size.

The goal of reaching a healthy weight may seem unattainable, but with diet and exercise, it can pay off through persistence and discipline.

Seeing the pounds gradually drop off can also be a great motivator and incentivize people to stay the course.

Those who've achieved their respective weight goals shared their experiences when Redditor apprenti8455 asked:

"People who lost a lot of weight, what surprises you the most now?"

Redditors didn't see these coming.

Shiver Me Timbers

"I’m always cold now!"

– Telrom_1

"I had a coworker lose over 130 pounds five or six years ago. I’ve never seen him without a jacket on since."

– r7ndom

"140 lbs lost here starting just before COVID, I feel like that little old lady that's always cold, damn this top comment was on point lmao."

– mr_remy

Drawing Concern

"I lost 100 pounds over a year and a half but since I’m old(70’s) it seems few people comment on it because (I think) they think I’m wasting away from some terminal illness."

– dee-fondy

"Congrats on the weight loss! It’s honestly a real accomplishment 🙂"

"Working in oncology, I can never comment on someone’s weight loss unless I specifically know it was on purpose, regardless of their age. I think it kind of ruffles feathers at times, but like I don’t want to congratulate someone for having cancer or something. It’s a weird place to be in."

– LizardofDeath

Unleashing Insults

"I remember when I lost the first big chunk of weight (around 50 lbs) it was like it gave some people license to talk sh*t about the 'old' me. Old coworkers, friends, made a lot of not just negative, but harsh comments about what I used to look like. One person I met after the big loss saw a picture of me prior and said, 'Wow, we wouldn’t even be friends!'”

"It wasn’t extremely common, but I was a little alarmed by some of the attention. My weight has been up and down since then, but every time I gain a little it gets me a little down thinking about those things people said."

– alanamablamaspama

Not Everything Goes After Losing Weight

"The loose skin is a bit unexpected."

– KeltarCentauri

"I haven’t experienced it myself, but surgery to remove skin takes a long time to recover. Longer than bariatric surgery and usually isn’t covered by insurance unless you have both."

– KatMagic1977

"It definitely does take a long time to recover. My Dad dropped a little over 200 pounds a few years back and decided to go through with skin removal surgery to deal with the excess. His procedure was extensive, as in he had skin taken from just about every part of his body excluding his head, and he went through hell for weeks in recovery, and he was bedridden for a lot of it."

– Jaew96

These Redditors shared their pleasantly surprising experiences.


"I can buy clothes in any store I want."

– WaySavvyD

"When I lost weight I was dying to go find cute, smaller clothes and I really struggled. As someone who had always been restricted to one or two stores that catered to plus-sized clothing, a full mall of shops with items in my size was daunting. Too many options and not enough knowledge of brands that were good vs cheap. I usually went home pretty frustrated."

– ganache98012

No More Symptoms

"Lost about 80 pounds in the past year and a half, biggest thing that I’ve noticed that I haven’t seen mentioned on here yet is my acid reflux and heartburn are basically gone. I used to be popping tums every couple hours and now they just sit in the medicine cabinet collecting dust."

– colleennicole93

Expanding Capabilities

"I'm all for not judging people by their appearance and I recognise that there are unhealthy, unachievable beauty standards, but one thing that is undeniable is that I can just do stuff now. Just stamina and flexibility alone are worth it, appearance is tertiary at best."

– Ramblonius

People Change Their Tune

"How much nicer people are to you."

"My feet weren't 'wide' they were 'fat.'"

– LiZZygsu

"Have to agree. Lost 220 lbs, people make eye contact and hold open doors and stuff"

"And on the foot thing, I also lost a full shoe size numerically and also wear regular width now 😅"

– awholedamngarden

It's gonna take some getting used to.

Bones Everywhere

"Having bones. Collarbones, wrist bones, knee bones, hip bones, ribs. I have so many bones sticking out everywhere and it’s weird as hell."

– Princess-Pancake-97

"I noticed the shadow of my ribs the other day and it threw me, there’s a whole skeleton in here."

– bekastrange

Knee Pillow

"Right?! And they’re so … pointy! Now I get why people sleep with pillows between their legs - the knee bones laying on top of each other (side sleeper here) is weird and jarring."

– snic2030

"I lost only 40 pounds within the last year or so. I’m struggling to relate to most of these comments as I feel like I just 'slimmed down' rather than dropped a ton. But wow, the pillow between the knees at night. YES! I can relate to this. I think a lot of my weight was in my thighs. I never needed to do this up until recently."

– Strongbad23

More Mobility

"I’ve lost 100 lbs since 2020. It’s a collection of little things that surprise me. For at least 10 years I couldn’t put on socks, or tie my shoes. I couldn’t bend over and pick something up. I couldn’t climb a ladder to fix something. Simple things like that I can do now that fascinate me."

"Edit: Some additional little things are sitting in a chair with arms, sitting in a booth in a restaurant, being able to shop in a normal store AND not needing to buy the biggest size there, being able to easily wipe my butt, and looking down and being able to see my penis."

– dma1965

People making significant changes, whether for mental or physical health, can surely find a newfound perspective on life.

But they can also discover different issues they never saw coming.

That being said, overcoming any challenge in life is laudable, especially if it leads to gaining confidence and ditching insecurities.
