You know how it goes: you're getting ready to shave, all lathered up and about to take that first razor swipe, when you see a sign saying not to use the water because it is literal poison, and also you have the best abs on the entire planet.

We've all been there, right?


No?

Okay maybe not, but that's what happened to extremely hot actor Sam Claflin. And the photographic proof of the bizarre situation has inadvertently taken the internet's thirst to a code red.

Claflin is the 33-year-old actor you may remember from The Hunger Games films, in which he played the character of Finnick, as well as the BBC series Peaky Blinders where he plays real life villain fascist and Nazi sumpathizer Oswald Mosley and the most recent remake of Charlie's Angels.

He is also extremely hot.

He was shaving the other day, as one does, when he came across a sign posted on the sink reading:

" Do not use the tap water – there is anti freeze in the water lines! Use the hand sanitizer provided."

Ominous!

WTF, right? Why is there antifreeze in the water? Is Sam Claflin shaving at a Superfund site?

So, Sam did what any normal person would do in this day and age: posted a photo of the bizarre notice to Instagram.

And absolutely nobody cared...

...about the antifreeze that is, because HOLY ABS GOOD LORD SWEET MERCY WOWOWOWOWOW *drools*

Claflin's post quickly racked up hundreds of thousands of likes and scores of comments.

Not one of which pertained to the odd and possibly dangerous subject at hand.

It was just straight-up, pure, uncut, unadulterated, unfettered THIRST.

And who can blame them?

Who can reasonably be expected to FOCUS on the problem at hand when those delicious abs are staring them in the face? Claflin has no one to blame but himself.

Judgment for the defendants.

Even some of Claflin's celebrity friends were no match for this ab-solutely ab-ominable-in-a-good-way ab-undance of... well, abs.

But perhaps the true measure of the power of Claflin's abs was the fact that Razor company Gillette had to profess its thirst, too.

So, there you have it folks: if you have abs and you're going to post something to Instagram pertaining to a possible threat to your life, make sure you put on a shirt first.

Well that was a close call. That is everyone's main life mantra. If you really think about it, you'll know it to be true. Everyday we live, is another day we've survived, and death isn't the only thing we frequently sidestep. I have lost track of the amount of times my heart has almost gotten me into trouble. If I had been able to be with the people I thought I wanted in the past, I'd be in a mental ward right about now. Dodging a bullet doesn't even begin to cover it.

Redditor u/Not-an-Ocelot wanted to hear about the times that have made people give some extra thanks by asking... What's the biggest bullet you've ever dodged?

When your time is up, your time is up. And when we march off into the afterlife it feels like everyone wants one of two or two things. People want to go out in a blaze of glory and/or in peace and without pain. I don't know if both is possible but I'll choose option two please. What I know for sure is I definitely don't want to be smoted by a stupid death. Like, Lord, please don't let me die choking on fried chicken and an XL frozen Appletini at the Dallas BBQ because I was laughing to hard at my own jokes. Please.

Redditor u/BlueD_ wanted everyone to fess up about the times they almost met their maker in a less than dignified manner by asking... What's the dumbest way you almost died?

We may not know it, but sometimes things that seem routine or are just one of our personal habits can really hold back our lives.

One little change to cut those things, or to include new things, can really change the quality of our lives for the better. We have to be willing to drop old routines, which is hard and scary; and we need to be willing to accept new ideas into our space, which is also hard and scary.
