Some one night stands are unforgettable.


Unfortunately, the reason a one night stand is memorable is not always great.

Redditor u/DD275 asked was very specific when they asked... "People who had one night stands on September 10 of 2001, what was the next morning like?" And people did actually have stories of trysts that turned tragic.

10. "He was spending the night in Jersey City..."

"Not me but an old friend. He was spending the night with an friends with bee of his in Jersey City (he lived in Brooklyn at the time). Long story short they literally wound up watching everything happen from the roof of her building."

9. "Trapped in the house with two crying women..."

"I used to work with a guy who this actually happened to. He was in DC so the Pentagon bombings were more what he was dealing with. It was apparently an older woman and she immediately called her friend over to commiserate and had put his clothes in to wash so he was trapped in the house with two crying women in front of the tv wearing nothing but a woman's robe."

8. "I woke up first..."

"I woke up first, saw the news, and had to go back into the bedroom to wake her up and tell her what was happening. That moment felt very intense. I had the feeling I had a dire responsibility to choose my words very carefully. We spent the next few days together. Then we dated for a couple of years and got married. We're still married and have a little family."

7. "I would have never been born..."

"Fun Fact: Both my parents were in the military at the time. If it wasn't for 9/11, then they would have never been stationed at the same military base, never have met, and I would have never been born."

6. "My news took a back seat..."

"I actually lost my virginity on Sept 10th 2001. I woke up the next morning excited to tell my buddies about my night. I didnt know about the attacks until I got to school and our teacher was listening to the news...obviously my news took a back seat to the attacks, until lunch time."

5. "She was from NY..."

"I got laid because of the 9/11 attacks. Quite literally i would not have met this woman if not for the attacks. She knocked on my door asking to watch the news because she was from ny and didnt have a tv of her own."

4. "There was a girl on a lot of missing posters..."

"There was a girl on a lot of missing posters back then. She went missing on 9/11 but didn't have any reason to be at the towers. Around 2011, they finally learned that she had a one night stand with a guy who worked in the towers and brought him lunch the next day. Terrible timing. She was from a conservative Indian family so hadn't told them where she was."

3. "Everything turned into a ghost town..."

"I woke up to a phone call from my mom, who didn't know where I was, saying "we've been bombed." I was a teen at the time and thought we were all just going to die. The weirdest part of that day was how everything turned into a ghost town. Driving home. No cars. Everything was closed. It felt like everyone died and I had missed it. I've never felt that same fear since that day."

2. "I'll never forget him..."

We met on 9/10 and he stayed the night at my house. He was a friend of a friend visiting from Seattle. We spent most of the day together in shock, eyes glued to the news. He went back to Seattle two days later and we haven't spoken since. I don't even remember his name but I'll never forget him."

1. "It was awful..."

"Not that awkward. It was awful and the awfulness was very...humanizing. We watched tv and had coffee. Nobody went to work (we were in nyc). We met up later that week. Stayed friends for a while. I just remember how sad it was."

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.

"What never fails to piss you off?"
