"What's a question you hate when people ask you?" –– This was today's burning question from Redditor cooldood1410, who reminded us that there are certain things we'd rather not have to answer again.

People can be so nosy, right?

Perhaps life would be much, much easier if we all agreed to stay out of each other's business. (Easier said than done, we know.)


"Well, you see..."

"How can your stand sticking yourself to give yourself insulin?"

Well you see, death is pretty strong motivation.

"I'm colorblind..."

I'm colorblind. Anytime someone finds out about it they immediately point to something and go "WHAT COLOR IS THIS?!?" with the most annoying enthusiasm.

"No, I haven't been mishearing or misunderstanding them."

Giphy

I'm a twin. "How do you tell yourself apart?"

No, I haven't been mishearing or misunderstanding them. They've actually asked me how I tell myself apart from my twin.

"My answer..."

At work: "Are you done yet?" My answer, no matter where I am in the process, is always very sarcastically "Yep..."

"Stressful and awful..."

"How's the job search going?"

Stressful and awful and completely dehumanizing and I want to die, thanks.

"Why aren't you..."

Why aren't you in a relationship yet? Or the other one: why aren't you married yet?

I'm so tired of this question.

TheDustOfMen

"Nope."

So are you just home for the summer?

Nope. I graduated university 3 years ago and work here full time, thanks.

"When people..."

When people ask about my parents. Relatively young and don't have either of em. More of an awkward instance where the conversation can stall when I'm like, well they're no longer with us.

ReverendLoveboy

"An actual conversation..."

An actual conversation I had with some conservationist or missionary person.

Them: "So where are you from?"

Me: "I live around here."

"Sorry, I mean, where is your family from?"

"Los Angeles."

"No, I mean, where did your family originate?"

"Oh, the Philippines."

"I did some work there a few years ago. Beautiful country."

"I don't know. I've never been."

"I walk with a crutch..."

I walk with a crutch and also a limp and I get asked every single day what is wrong with me it drives me insane and makes me feel more self conscious than I already am.

"Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the hottest and dumbest of them all?"

I know that is not verbatim the original quote, but it is close to the original.

Brains and beauty are always intertwined.

So often people confess about wanting to be more of the other.

No one is ever happy where they are. Why are we like that?

If given a chance, like a Disney movie, how do you trade?

Is it superficial to want looks over knowledge? Or vice versa?

Let's get deep....

Redditor BroodyBatman wanted to know who was willing to give up a little bit of brains for a whole lot of beauty, so they asked:

"Would you give up 15-20 IQ points to be really, REALLY ridiculously good looking? Why?"

The world is not so big a place, is it?

While we like to think of ourselves as isolated in this billion plus planet, there can be a lot more crossover than we think. We call these instances coincidences, hoping to find the right word to explain what happens when a one-in-a-million chance occurs.

If there's over seven billion plus people in the world, turns out you can run into these 'coincidences' more often than you think.

Let me make a quick point about conspiracy theories: Do people understand just how difficult it is for many of the conspiracies they claim to believe in to come to fruition? We're talking global levels of cooperation here, by the way, and it's clear the world can't even get itself out of a pandemic sooo...

But thankfully, there are some more innocent comnspiracies out there. For example, a former classmate once told me that he was convinced he couldn't remember all the items on his shopping list because of shopping elves distracting him to buy other things he didn't exactly need.

To be fair, he was a little stoned at the time and I told him he might want to consider just writing and referring to a shopping list.

People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor ConcentrateNext1734 asked the online community,

"What’s a conspiracy that you believe, but the majority of people don’t believe or know about?"

Children are very impressionable. They're also little humans, remember, and all quite different. Some are more afraid of some things than others. When I was a kid, some of my classmates were utterly terrified of Chucky, the killer doll.

I think he worked the best in the first film and to a larger extent in the second, but after that? Those movies got a bit ridiculous, wouldn't you agree?

Well, the memories linger, as you can imagine.

People took us on a trip down memory lane after Redditor teacatpeng asked the online community,

"What’s something you saw (as a kid) that gave you nightmares for a long time?"
