Some people like sweets, some people like alcohol, some people are willing to spend extra money a month just to have full access to all 14 seasons of their favorite obscure Canadian detective show.

You don't judge us, we won't judge you.


Reddit was asked:

"What is a guilty pleasure for you ?"

...and ... like ... we honestly feel kind of bonded in non-shame over this stuff.

Because it's all just SO GOOOOOOOOD!

It's Britney ...

"Playing Britney Spears’ music on 11 when I’m in the car all by myself. Especially 'Work Bitch' when I’m on the way to work an extra shift."

-nancydrew1224

"Toxic is an undeniably fantastic song."

-TheBrontosaurus

"It's such a weird mix of elements. Obviously you have Britney's pop singing, but it also mixes harsh strings with synth electro and a lot of rock elements. It blurs several genres together, and accordingly fits well next to other genres of music."

-Nambot

Those Golden Arches

"McDonald’s"

"I regret my choice right after finishing my meal. But not enough to prevent me from going back the next week lol"

-Candidmirror12

"Why did you say the word? I've been clean for three months straight!"

-realfoodman

"Yep."

"I get a craving 2-3 times a year. Same damned order every time. Large #1 value meal with a coke and a cheeseburger."

"I love their little chopped onions"

"Did you know that the Coke syrup formula for McDonald’s is different than what you get at home or other restaurants? It’s actually sweeter per McDonald’s request and specifications"

-mlgbt1985

Can't Run

"The Tremors anthology. Bad B-rated horror but god DAMN do I love me some graboids."

-BolognaIsNotAHat

"The first movie is legitimately excellent. The rest are stupid syfy level movies that are still a ton of fun."

-Taynt42

"The second one is also not terrible. Felt like a well measured escalation. The 3rd one on, though... SMH."

-Hotarg

"You ever have something be so bad that it loops itself back around into being awesome? That's this."

- [Reddit]

Perfect Mood Lifter

"Watching kid shows or disney movies even though I'm an adult."

-BanGinGDreams

"Phineas and Ferb."

"I honestly love to cruise the country side with my biker group, smoke half a pack, get home crack a beer and see what Phineas and Ferb did today."

"I'm a 28 year old man."

-Tiger_In_Maine

"Cartoons are good for the soul. Visually pleasing to watch. Good stories. Usually have some safe humor. Always end on a feel good tone. The perfect mood lifter when you're feeling down."

-GingerJayPear

Go Go Power Rangers

"Power rangers lore."

"I'm 28, can't get myself to sit through the kids shows anymore. But man did I love the series growing up and like keeping up with the new stories and seeing how it's going."

"My significant other would pretty much leave me if she found out how much I'm still addicted to keeping up with a show that I should have dropped 20 years ago."

-PN-DUBS

"Full stop, check out the comics. They were made for people that watched it as children and are adults now and they are honestly nothing short of incredible between the art and storylines. They do some really rad stuff."

-ForSafeKeeping220

Digging

"Picking my nose. I know it’s a bad habit but it’s nostalgic"

-VictoryIsMudkipz

"Kinda same it's not just gross but I also feel like it makes my nostrils bigger so I feel even more guilty 😭"

-getawaycar7H13

"There are two kinds of people in the world. People who pick their nose and liars"

-energy_falcon

Terribly Delicious

"Bad coffee."

"Like you go to a chrome-plated diner by the interstate and the coffee is made of cheap, stale grounds that has been on the hot plate or 3 hours. Something about it is super nostalgic."

-MutantOverlord

"Hell yes. I'll get like 5 refills on that tiny ass cup, tyvm"

-stoncils_

"Just terrible enough to want another cup."

Later

"Procrastinating….I hate myself for it"

-Usual-Difference9135

"I was going to comment the same but figured it could wait."

-C0rnD0g1

"I usually have two or three things on the go at once. So when I feel like procrastinating, I switch to one of the other things. My job has become literally me always procrastinating."

-StGir1

T.Swift

"I, on some occasions, belt out Taylor Swift’s 'Our Song' when I’m alone"

-nenolpunk

"I do it too but with 'The Story of Us' "

-SoonlyXo

"Taylor Swift's old songs are the best songs"

-AwesomeSpindleberry

"It’s this or 'Teardrops on My Guitar' because wow. Hit me in my teen feels."

"Who is Drew? I don't know, but I’ll sing about them regardless"

-nenolpunk

Hipster ASMR

"Before I discovered ASMR, I used to secretly watch videos of makeup tutorials because they made me feel relaxed. I'm a guy who's never worn make up in my life."

-SXOSXO

"I'm a man in my 30s. I love the cosplay tutorials from Alyson Tabbitha."

-amadeus2490

"Literally same!!! I watch NikkieTutorials or Naomi Jon! Like I personally don’t wear make up but I love the art behind it"

So tell us, what's your pleasure? And do you HONESTLY feel guilty about it?

Go ahead and talk about it in the comments, I've got a certain Canadian Detective to check up on.

Never miss another big, odd, funny or heartbreaking moment again.

Many people lie or exaggerate about seemingly little things. For example, I've wondered if many are lying or at the very least stretching the truth about the number of partners they've had.

One of those strange things where half of the people are lying and making the number higher, and the other half are lying and making it lower.

It's funny, isn't it? But you do you! What do we know?

People shared some of their thoughts with us after Redditor SleepingOmibozu asked the online community,

"What's something you're 100% sure most people are lying about?"

I once met a guy who, by all accounts, appeared to have given up. And by that, I mean that they had pretty much decided that life basically ended in the 1970s and early 1980s. He had no interest in modern technology, was remarkably out of the loop when it came to technology or even current events.

This was all very frustrating to witness, but he was actually proud of himself! Proud to not know much–if anything–about the modern world. (And then he complained about how he kept having trouble finding a job.)

It was quite the flex–an unimpressive one at that.

People Who Avoided Getting COVID Share How They Think They Did It

When the global pandemic hit in March of 2020, everyone hoped that after two weeks or so of social distancing, cases would begin to drop and things would quickly get back to normal.

And though life is slowly getting back to what it once was, cases of COVID-19 continue to ebb and flow.

It almost feels like everyone must have caught COVID-19 at least once by now.

But even three years in and with multiple variants, there are still a very lucky, select few who have yet to test positive for COVID-19.

Redditor jwa8808 was curious to hear how those who have yet to see two red sticks on their rapid tests have managed to avoid catching COVID-19, leading them to ask:

"For people who have never caught covid even once, what's your secret?"
