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."

What is in the water in the United States that compels people to walk around in their homes with their shoes on? Try doing that in South Korea––people would be so mortified. I have a sibling whose apartment is carpeted from wall to wall and who walks around inside with his shoes on all the time, tracking in any manner of dirt and dust from outside. Egad! I get chills just thinking about it. And as an American, it's something I've noticed people from other countries love to comment on.

We learned a lot more about things that are considered normal in other countries after Redditor monitonik asked the online community,

"What's normal in your country that's considered weird in others?"

The brain a fascinating part of the body. No, its the most fascinating.

Scientists have said for years that we'll never know all about the brain and its functions.

So if it is so fascinating and so capable and awesome... why does it stall? Why does it overload?

Why aren't we all gifted with photographic memory? The brain definitely has a full storage issue. And we all suffer.

Redditor u/MABAMA45 wanted everyone to fess up to and just embrace all the things the brain can't handle by asking:

What can your brain just not comprehend?

Going to college is an exciting experience. You meet new people, learn about the world and the inner workings of society, and make lasting friendships. As fun (and expensive *cough, cough*) as higher education can be there is a reason that only one-third of the US population 25 and older have been able to complete a four-year degree program. It is hard and burnout is real.

Going through university was filled with both happiness and sometimes tears for me. I loved school and found my classes interesting, dove into extracurriculars, and had that perfectionist drive to get all A's... totally not sustainable. It hit me I was totally burnt out about two years in while enrolled in an algebra class.
