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.

"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?"
