It's a shame that only 17% of Americans sleep naked...


Sleeping in the buff can help you fall asleep faster, reduce your risk for yeast infections, and even improve your relationship with your partner, according to Huffpost. Maybe losing the clothes at bed time is a good idea after all...

Unless, there's some kind of emergency that requires you to make a quick getaway. Redditor u/Nazamoth had some concerns about sleeping nude, and so asked, "People who sleep naked, what is your plan in case of a fire or murderer?"

10. Business as usual, but naked

Giphy

"1. ⁠Use a fire extinguisher, naked.

2. ⁠Fight the intruder, naked."

9. Break out or break the intruder

"I have a bat next to the bed.

1. ⁠Intruder? Use bat.

2. ⁠Fire? Use bat."

8. Be intimidating

"Sleeping naked literally is my plan in both those cases.
If the house is on fire I assume it would be warm, probably excessively so, by already being naked I have few seconds advantage on the heat becoming unbearable.

If a murderer enters the house while I'm asleep I figure the best course of defence is to scare them off, I'm not by nature a frightening man, but I figure to a nighttime intruder an angry naked guy running at you b**** swinging freely would be somewhat intimidating."

7. Fearless nudity is dominating 

"Intensely stare at whatever the threat is and assert dominance"

6. Make the threat feel guilty for disturbing you 

"Whip out my cocktail sausage to make the fire and/or burglar leave me alone because of guilt."

5. Keep it sexy

"In case of fire I just put on clothes. In case of murderer. Well I can give a sexy distraction so i can KO him."

Deamonette

4. Keep your wits

"I don't understand the question? Why would it be any different if you had clothes on. I'm not gonna let myself be murdered or stay in a burning building because I'm too embarrassed that I'm naked."

3. Life comes full circle 

"I'm going out the way I came into this world"

Kaidenshiba

2. Use your hidden talents

Giphy

"Perform the helicopter maneuver in hopes that it intimidates the potential murder, or blows out the fire like a 5 year old with their birthday candles."

1. Do what you gotta do

"Same thing just nude"

Gwob4

"This. As a firefighter, this really happens, and honestly, we don't care as long as you're safe. Taking that extra time can really make the difference between living and dying. We have blankets just for this reason.

Besides, if you're actually burnt or injured chances are that you are going to end up naked at the ER anyway, and its saves us a few minutes."

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.
