People Who Sleep Naked Share Their Emergency Exit Plan

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"

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."

People Explain Which Scientific Achievements They'd Like To See Before They Die

Advancements in science happen every day in every way.

But often it feels like we are still so far behind.

How have we not cured so many diseases?

Shouldn't we know more about space?

What is Jello really made of?

So much to ponder and understand.

Maybe one day.

We all have a bucket list of what we'd like to see cured or invented before our last breaths.

Let's discuss...

Redditor yoda2060wanted to discuss all the science that needs to be devoured before the sand runs out of the hourglass. They asked:

"What scientific achievement you would like to see before you die?"

Fast fashion is terrible for the environment, one of the largest polluters of clean water globally because of its all too common use of cheap, toxic textile dyes.

It also places producers under more and more pressure to manufacture more and more clothes on masse–the people working in the factories that make this stuff are being paid a pittance, contributing to much of the wealth inequality in less developed nations.

Additionally, it's estimated that the textiles industry produces 1.2 billion tonnes of CO2 per year and that just two percent of all fast fashion emissions can be reduced through recycling. Ouch. Time to change habits, right?

People shared their thoughts on this and other topics after Redditor urmomsucked asked the online community,

"What should people seriously stop buying?"

If you make too many funny faces, your face will stay that way permanently.

Watch too much tv and your eyes will fall out.

Break a mirror and it's seven years of bad luck.

These are among the many myths and superstitions we heard as children, more often than not from our parents and teachers as a way of scaring us into behaving.

But while there is not one ounce of truth to any of these tall tales, there are many who still believe them, and many more.

Redditor RedditPersonIf was curious to learn what superstitions people continue to believe are true, leading them to ask:

"What myths are obviously false, yet most people still believe they are true?"

Who hasn't looked at a scarf someone knitted for a loved one, a flawless homemade birthday cake, or an immaculately planted garden and thought, "I wish I could do that"?

But you'd never dare try to attempt it yourself, knowing that it's well beyond your personal skill set.

But is it?

Intimidating as they may seem, some skills might be deceptively easier than they appear to be, or might come more naturally to you than to many others.

Redditor halfmoon599 was curious to hear what skills people believed to be much easier than they seem, leading them to ask:

"What skill is actually easier to learn than what other people think?"
