It can be hard to slog through the plethora of mediocrity to find a truly good sci-fi and fantasy series, but finding a truly good one can be nearly life-changing.
Save some time by checking out some of these series if you're looking for something with substance.
Redditor Apart-Scale asked:
"What science fiction or fantasy show is worth watching?"
"Red dwarf if you want a comedy"
"Rimmer: go to red alert"
"Kryten: are you sure sir, it does mean changing the bulb"
"Yeah but they were sometimes also deadly incisive."
"Take 'Thanks for the Memory'. As a drunken lark, Lister gives unlucky-in-love Rimmer the memory of being involved with a girl named Lise Yates. Happy at first, Rimmer eventually figures out that none of this ever happened to him but to Lister. Even knowing this, Rimmer remains devastated because 'The woman I loved most in the whole world ... loved you.'"
"The whole sci-fi trope that 'you are what you remember, so be careful fucking with it' - never seen it put more clearly. When it was good, Red Dwarf was amazing."
"I don't think I've managed to cook seafood in my whole adult life without singing 'I'm gonna eat you, little fishy!' at it."
"Cat is truly an inspiration to us all."
"Utopia (UK). very good and very underrated."
"This is absolutely the correct answer. It's worth watching for the music alone, some of the most deeply unsettling audio you'll ever hear in your life, reminiscent of that one creepy alien song from Annihilation everyone keeps putting in their spoopy TikToks. Cristobal Tapia de Veer (what a fuckin name) is a criminally underrated composer, and this is his best work by far."
"The opening scene perfectly sets the tone for the rest of the show: quiet menace, deep dread, utter callousness, and the insinuation that all life is cheap and disposable, even that of children. If you like that scene then you'll love the show, although "like" might be the wrong word."
"While it ended sooner than the creators wanted it to, leaving plenty on the table for further exploration if they ever decide to bring it back, the story is fully complete and doesn't leave you with massive blue balls like so many shows that have been abruptly cancelled. And it's a show that will stick with you for years, made all the more relevant given the situation the world is in at the moment."
"The Expanse. So good."
"It's like a game of thrones in space only the books are essentially finished so it doesn't get the sharp drop in quality."
"One of the most important things about The Expanse is that the book writers are actively involved in the show's production - they're executive producers and write the script. They acknowledge weaknesses in the books and adjust the show to improve the plot and narrative. They also allow the characters to develop organically and take the actors' talents and insights into consideration while writing the show (for example, Drummer and Ashford were both given bigger roles in the show because the writers were so impressed with their performance)."
"They understand the source material better than anyone, which is why Season 3 was basically two books condensed into 10 episodes, but it was still so good. And they aren't hung up on their own egos and let the universe and characters take a life of their own."
"And Warehouse 13!"
"I just started watching this week, and I love Eureka! Already binged the first two seasons. It's refreshing to see a generally positive storyline that is pro-science without being dark and dystopian."
"I love that show. Jack carter saving the town from b movie sci fi conundrums caused by out of this world science projects gone wrong. His only tool to fix things…. His 'every man' logic."
"Stargate SG-1. 'Window of Opportunity' is the best episode of TV I've ever seen."
"SG-1 will always be that show. I grew up with it and I’ve rewatched the entire show at least five times since. Last year my husband and I watched it together, first time for him, and he agreed that it was one of, if not the most enjoyable tv show of all time."
"The cast has great chemistry, not a single episode is a serious dud, and as a young girl it was an absolute pleasure and privilege growing up with Samantha Carter as a female role model."
"Even universe is okay, but SG-1 is the best."
"Dark is my favorite show of all time. It’s a Netflix original and in German; it’s a time travel show that fully embraces the paradoxes a lot of other media dealing with time travel tend to ignore or avoid. It’s a truly beautifully complex show with some of the best and most shocking twists I’ve seen on television."
"The casting is also absolutely phenomenal. The show spans over 100 years and shows multiple generations of characters. Younger and older versions of characters genuinely look like the same actor at different points in their lives."
"Dark is amazing. It's also one of my favorite shows ever, and the only show that I've ever had to (and been willing to) take notes and refer to character charts while watching haha. So complicated, but so good"
"They really do! There were times where I thought maybe it was the same actor in good make up."
"Great show but I recommend marathoning it. Don't leave gaps between seasons or you may get confused. It's a show you need to pay attention to."
"Nobody mentioned Babylon 5? It’s a little old, but that show has some of the best space opera storytelling out there!"
"Not only is B5 fantastic, original and pioneering, it's getting a update/reboot from the original show runner soon! Can't wait to see B5 in a modern reincarnation."
His Dark Materials
"His Dark Materials. If you get hooked, the 3 part book series is insanely good. Would NOT recommend the movie though, complete trash in my opinion."
"By far my favorite trilogy. I stopped halfway through the second season I just didn't find the characters fitting for the roles they played. I guess the story become to personal for me the way I imagined it from reading. Lee Scorsby Grumman, and even Will or Lyra all just didn't fit and it took away from the immersion. The episode where Lyra first gets to the north I thought was excellent however."
"My favorite book series! I’m very pleased with how the show turned out as opposed to the movie."
Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency
"Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency"
"It was a mind trip! My mum and I started it while having dinner, and we were so confused and intrigued we kept going. It hit midnight and I just wanted to go to bed BUT THE DOG?? BART!? We ended up watching the whole thing in one sitting 😂"
"So glad someone mentioned this show. Great cast, good balance of comedy and drama, just weird enough not to be off putting. Could have gone many more seasons"
"I’m shocked at how good Arcane is."
"since so many people have either commented that it’s the best series ever or highly overrated, let me say the obvious: it’s not for everyone. I understand many of the criticisms, and would disagree with anyone who acts like it’s perfect. It is pretty original and well-produced."
"Arcane is amazing! That show shocked me since I’m not at all into league of legends and I really ended up enjoying it! It’s also great to see the animation medium expanding out into more diverse styles and genres!"
"If anybody is avoiding it because it's animated and loosely tied to a video game they are missing out big time. It's the best fantasy TV series since the early seasons of GoT."
"Well written characters with great voice acting, great attention to detail and rewatch value, and possibly the most aesthetically stylish TV show ever."
"Battlestar Galactica - the one from the early 2000s with Edward James Olmos."
"My favorite episodes of any show were Exodus 1 and 2 near the start of season 3. Never been so much on the edge of my seat."
"The music and pacing of that space battle, ending in silence as the camera pans back from the Galactica, about to be overrun by multiple baseships…."
"….and then the missiles streak by. The Pegasus comes roaring in. And the drums begin to pound."
"Absolutely frakkin’ awesome."
"The show with a ridiculous like 50+ years of Harvard education amongst the writing staff."
"To this day I still feel the urge to limbo after successfully filling out paperwork."
"I still to this day will never understand how Simpsons was more popular and kept airing. Simpsons was great but Futurama was Matt’s masterpiece."
The Twilight Zone
"The Twlight Zone.
"Over 60 years later and so many of the episodes still hold up so well because of the great writing."
"The annual New Years Day marathon on SyFy is awesome."
"Spent the entire day on the couch watching It. So awesome."
"The hell is this so far down the list?"
"Firefly turns 20 this year. We're getting old af."
"The fact that Firefly isn't a slam dunk top answer shows just how old I am and reinforces the fact that teenagers are taking over."
"GET OFF MY DAMN LAWN!"
"It's on Netflix"
"Very character driven and has an ending (albeit brutal and bittersweet). Worth it if more cerebral stuff with an action scene every now and then sounds fun."
"I've been mentioning this for a year or so and no one has heard of it. So, so, soooo good."
"I know right?"
"Small Canadian broadcasted sci-fi shows usually don't grab the public consciousness (unless they're American funded ones that just film up there like Stargate or Battlestar Galactica to save a little $$$)."
"I was so glad I watched it and was reduced to tears by some of the developments this show took at the end. It's definitely a favourite of mine now."
"Maybe saying it stars the guy from Will and Grace and he's completely different might spark a fire of interest to potential watchers too."
"Fringe really has it all: Each episode with a stand-alone storyline, but with an overarching storyline discreetly in the background, great character development, an amazing and eclectic cast, suspense, great visuals, keeps you guessing, heart warming, emotional and plenty of well placed humor."
"Easily one of the best sci-fi series."
"Misfits was a super fun show and I enjoyed it a lot."
"All 3 UK series of Being Human are good."
"Premise sounds like a joke: 'A ghost, a werewolf and a vampire rent a house'."
"Loved Being Human, sad the US couldn't just show the original instead of a remake."
"Farscape. The answer is always Farscape."
"The problem with Farscape was that you had to have watched from the beginning to really appreciate what was going on - you couldn't jump in at any point like Star Trek or Stargate - I mean with those it helps, with Farscape it was pretty much nonsense if you didn't know the story."
- Star Trek
- Star Trek: The Next Generation
- Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
- Battlestar Galactica (2003)
- Stargate SG-1
- The Expanse
- The Orville (Star Trek + dick jokes)
- Doctor Who (2005) (but to be honest I got kind of burned out after "The Day of the Doctor" (2013). There are just so many doctors and so little time!)
- BABYLON 5 (for the love of god do yourself a favor)
- Firefly (short-lived, ill-fated)
- Lexx (the weirdness of Farscape + more dick jokes and sexual innuendos at every turn, but actually kind of a cool
- Space: Above and Beyond (short-lived, ill-fated)
- Odyssey 5 (short-lived, ill-fated, starring RoboCop)
- Travelers (made by the Stargate guys)
- Dark Matter (ill-fated but had 3 seasons, also made by the Stargate guys)
- Andromeda (just watch the first 2 seasons, it goes downhill after there)
- Other Space (a Yahoo! comedy/sci-fi starring your favorite young AT&T commercial actors and actresses (Milana Vayntrub and Karan Soni). Plus the guy from MST3k. Plus Eugene Cordero, who also stars in.....
- Star Trek: Lower Decks (the best Star Trek to come out since
Golden Nominee for Most Unexpected:
- Final Space (Yes, it's animated. Yes, it's kind of slapstick. But there's something very alluring about equal balance of drama and comedy set in a hard sci-fi environment. Plus the cast is out of this world and the story is genuinely interesting. One of those rare gems, kind of like Babylon 5, where the storytelling and music and characters all blend together wonderfully).
- Earth: Final Conflict (unique blend of sci-fi and...I guess crime drama? More cerebral and slow-burning, kind of like X-files)
- Seven Days (a sort-of Stargate SG-1-like secret government program to send one man back in time 7 days to prevent any disasters from ever happening. Very unique concept)
- Alien Nation (solid 80's buddy-cop crime drama, with the twist that there are a bunch of refugee aliens living among humans now.)
- Star Trek: Voyager (good for families, moderately consistent quality with a few really good episodes and a few really bad ones).
If you're a sci-fi or fantasy fan and haven't watched some of these series, consider giving a few of them a try.
There are some really excellent shows that you might have missed because they didn't get a lot of hype.

We've all played the "What I would do if I was rich" game.
You've imagined a trillion scenarios for what you would do (after you paid off your debt, of course) with wads of cash. In your imagination, you've given money to friends, started charities or businesses, and probably bought your fair share of imaginary real estate.
And that's all just the basics. We haven't even gotten into all the rich-people hobbies you could take up like SCUBA golfing, sailboat customization, or learning how to melt down antique jewelry to make gem-encrusted bongs for yoga Wednesdays at the gym-slash-coffeehaus.
Reddit user BabySuperfreak asked:
"What's your fantasy 'rich person hobby'?"
Reddit is absolutely right there with you, folks.
CarpentrySeason 4 Wow GIF by The SimpsonsGiphy
"Woodworking, which I already enjoy. But I'd have a huge workshop with all of the expensive tools."
"It's fun to figure out how you could spend increasingly large amounts of money on a hobby."
"$10k? Sweet garage shop."
"$100k? Build a huge shop and tweak it out. Loan it out to people who don't have access to shops."
"$1M? I have no idea. Train under the best woodworkers in the world? Visit exotic locales to see how materials/supplies are produced?"
"I just want my own bandsaw and I'll be happy, but yeah it's my dream to have my own little shop in a quaint little building in my backyard. It would be the cutest girliest little grandma-core workshop out of a fairytale picture book."
"I'd have little organized stations for everything and it would be so satisfying!"
"I've built a pretty decent 'shop' through marketplace and estate sales. Taken a while but I have most of the major tools I need. Affording wood is another story"
Want To Grab Lunch?
"I want to be a 'lady who lunches'."
"You could even step up your game and do 'Brunch' on Sunday! They would say 'wow she is so rich'.”
"Word. Except I think I would hate those people and just lunch w people who are self-employed artists and/or homeless."
"Those are the only two groups you'd eat lunch with?"
MiniaturesStartup Miniatures GIF by Mighty OakGiphy
"I love building miniatures. I helped my dad build a few models as a kid. Then I stumbled onto those miniature rooms you can buy on Amazon. Surprisingly cheap for the decent quality. I've done about 10 of them and have another 20 on my wishlist."
"I went to a hobby store the other day in search of a material for a custom mini, and my friend brought to me a giant box of a model of the Enterprise. For $1200. 3 months' rent."
"I know my first stop after winning the lottery"
"As a gamesworkshop fan I feel you. I’ve got a wishlist too."
"Being rich, you could build 1:1 scale miniatures."
SailingSewing Bee Hello GIF by The Great British Sewing BeeGiphy
"Sailing sounds fun as hell"
"Sailing is fun as hell. I’ve been crewing now for about 7 years."
"Sailing is cheap. It is owning a boat that’s expensive. I pay $350 a year for access to my local club’s boats if I do want to go take a boat out myself."
"Boat owners frequently spend $350 on parts for a single event, and people always need dependable and reliable crew."
"I’ve even gotten flown out to tropical places and had my accommodations paid for at bigger events! I don’t even own a boat, just pull lines!"
"If you live near a racing community, you can get into sailing at the cost of maybe some sandwiches for the team, or occasionally replacing sunglasses you drop in the drink, you just need the right attitude."
"I agree, but only during the day as the ocean according to videos seems pretty terrifying looking at night"
"Sailing is it for me too, particularly cruising. I'd like a nice, 45 ft catamaran that I could cruise around on with the family."
"I have more immediate ambitions to get a little beach cat (Hobie cat, etc) or a dinghy and improve my sailing skills."
"My local 'yacht club' has a learn to sail class that's pretty affordable for a two day introductory class and going out sailing twice (~$100). I did it last year, but I'm considering doing it again as I didn't exactly consolidate my skillet with practice in between."
"Traveling. I know it isn’t much of a hobby, but traveling can be very expensive, and I’ve always wanted to travel the world."
"Beside the cost, getting time off from your full time job can be very hard. I want to spend the summer traveling in XYZ, not fly in, have a couple of days looking around then fly back to work. There's no time to really relax and enjoy the experience"
"Be one of those people perpetually on vacation."
"I'm with you on that. I see all the wonderful places to travel and will never be able to go to them. At least many are on streaming channels now."
"Traveling without budget or ANY money worries. I'd like that. No more sh*tty third-grade hotels and public transportation *joys* and just enjoying the trip."
"I'd travel the world till I physically can't lol that sounds fun"
Esthetic Farmingcalfs GIFGiphy
"Owning a hobby farm/garden with *small breeds of farm animals (mini cheviot sheep, serama chickens, bantam call ducks, miniature jersey cows) *lush vegetation (english garden/new cottage style landscaping) *an orchard with a huge range of different kinds of each fruit and climate controlled greenhouses for plants that wouldn't grow in my region"
"Would they be miniature fruit trees? I want the small animals walking amongst the small trees with small fruit."
"I would love it to have ducks, cats, dogs, rabbits anything to be honest and just watch them enjoy their time and play around. A small pond for the animals to cool down, big trees for nice cool shadows and also some fruits that drop for them etc."
"I'd like to have a large collection of really cool fossils. The really neat ones are expensive."
"Oooh, good thought. You know there's a tech billionaire somewhere (I'm blanking on which one) that got really into collecting gemstones after he got swindled into buying some fakes."
"He found the geology of them fascinating and now he has the biggest jewel collection outside of a royal family and was in a documentary talking about them."
"I think pure geekery unfettered by financial restraints may my favorite use of a large fortune."
"Like a complete T-Rex skeleton and a complete Triceratops skeleton and make them fight like action figures... I'm not going to judge."
Preservation Of WildlifeHappy Feel Good GIFGiphy
"I'd really like to hire a ton of experts to help me find and preserve a wildlife habitat with all native species."
"Get rid of all the invasive plants and whatnot and make it how it was before we got here. I'd be the anti gardener."
"Same goals club! I’ve got a good 100 acres chugging away just woods. Have had several offers to buy it but they’re gonna have to wait til I’m dead."
"Last guy asked me why I wouldn’t sell. 'Because somebody already lives there sir.' Him-' but your house is way up there.' Me- 'yea but the birds and bugs live here.' Also learned that old people get pissed off when young people own land and don’t develop it into housing editions. 'People could live here!' People could live somewhere else too."
"Mine is similar: I want to make a huge bee sanctuary filled with all sorts of wildflowers and plants, with an absolute ton of pollinators like bees, butterflies and moths."
"Also all sorts of other interesting plants like oak trees and wild grass."
"Yours is my favorite I think :)"
'Paying' It ForwardTalking Season 3 GIF by The SimpsonsGiphy
"Anonymously paying debts or giving things to people in need."
"Robin Hood, that you?"
"I'd help with that if I could!"
"I think it would feel pretty amazing to sit in a bankruptcy court and pay off a defendant’s judgment. Idk how it works, though, like whether you can make a payment anonymously on someone else’s behalf."
"I wouldn’t pay off debts (other than to immediate family members), but I like the idea of randomly paying for groceries or gas for strangers."
"Especially at the last week or so of each month. Have some type of set up so I could have an arrangement with a store’s manager to call down to the cashier to just tell the customer after they scan everything, 'It’s your lucky day! You don’t have to pay!'."
"Operating a maker space that enriches the community and enables everyone to have access to tools and space to create anything they need / want."
"oh yeah my husband and I have talked about doing this"
"I'd love to have this for music. Like a rehearsal complex for certain younger artists I see potential in."
"Also have a recording studio nearby as well. Just try to develop some sort of niche community of musicians that focus on certain aspects of music"
"Have all the stuff like drumkits, guitar amps, all that in each room already (kind of like a normal rehearsal space you pay for). Maybe even some cheaper guitars so that even if you don't have money you can use them"
"Maybe do some community events with all the people, and who knows. Maybe some amazing bands or groups could come from it."
Alright bougie broke friends, it's your turn at the mic.
We know what Reddit would do for hobbies if they got rich, but what about you?
Anybody suddenly feel like funding a documentary into Tevin Campbell's life, music, and how homophobia robbed him of a bigger career and the community of a cornerstone personality?
No? Just me and my love for Mr. Campbell acting up again?
When it comes to expressing love, there is a multitude of ways to go about it. Most people stick to the classic: using the words "I love you."
But that's not the only way.
Using thoughtful gestures, love languages, special messages, or even just remembering little details about another person are all great ways to express love.
Curious about all the different ways of expressing love, Redditor sadesspresso asked:
"What is the best way to say “I love you” without actually saying “I love you”?"
"The moon is beautiful...."
"Some old japanese man told me some story and 'the moon is beautiful ' is supposed to mean I love you...."
"Minä rakastan sinua"
"Just say it in another language, and keep learning new languages."
Through Their Stomach
"I made your favourite food"
"This is the way. I bake my husband his favourite treats even though he’s the only one who likes them. That way if he’s having a blah day at work he opens his lunch and feels love"
"Definitely the way! I would love to just receive some homecooked food without having to ask first!"
Pride And Pride
"I’m proud of you"
"My wife pulled me aside after an especially brutal day at work and hugged me and whispered this in my ear. This was two weeks ago. I'm still floating."
Appreciating The Superstitions
"Kissing my husband goodbye before he goes to work."
"I read somewhere that men who kiss their wives before leaving for work live five years longer than those who don't. So even if I'm not a morning person, I drag myself out of the bed to make sure that I give him a kiss before he leaves for work. It might or might not be true, but I wish to do everything I can so he could live longer because I kinda like him."
"I kiss him when he arrives at work. He will live long."
Using Their Love Language
"There are different kinds of love languages aside from saying I love you. Giving gifts, physical touch, doing acts of service or nice things for them, and spending quality time. I think for me, time is such a selfless love language, because you’re showing that person that they are actually worth your time. And it doesn’t have to spent doing anything extravagant."
"Figuring out their love language and doing something that speaks to them most."
"Depends on what their love languages are. That shi* works."
"Remembering the small details."
"Remembering their likes and dislikes, favorite color, personal style, etc. Using the knowledge to please them often."
"The best way is to show how you care."
"Eg, you're making a coffee or cup of tea and you make one for them without asking, because you already know they'll say yes if you ask."
"Or they're working outside in the sun and you come out with a cold drink for them."
"Small things that show you're thinking about them."
"Surprise them with their favorite food or snacks/dessert. Ask them how their day is. Do their chores before they notice."
"Making sure their phone is fully charged for them before they leave the house."
Getting Home Safe
"Text me when you get home"
"This. My BF and I say this every time and do text each other when we do get home."
I Choose You
"If I had to choose between rescuing you or my PC from a fire, it'd only take me 10 seconds to choose you."
"I cleaned out the cat’s litter box so you don’t have to."
"According to my wife... Doing the dishes."
"Came home from work yesterday knowing I had to do laundry."
"In my apartment complex that just means walking up a flight of steps, walking down an outdoor hallway, and unlocking a door to the laundry room. But it's such a pain in because you have to set alarms for yourself and come back out to move the clothes to the dryer and collect them before you even get to worry about folding them."
"So yesterday I came home from work and my bf had done my laundry for me. He didn't fold it, but it was sitting, clean and done, by our bed ready to be folded and put away. No alarms, no trips, just a quick little in-place chore and it was over."
"That to me is love."
Well, after all, actions speak louder than words.
It doesn't have to be all about action, however. Just finding a new way to say, "I love you" can do wonders for you and the people you love.
Humans, we fall in and out of grace with one another constantly.
But there are reasons.
At first, you can really like someone.
Enjoy their company and spend tons of quality time with them.
Then one day, they drop the facade and show you some true colors.
Then respect goes out the window.
RedditorMissMona_69 wanted to talk about all the people we can longer be face to face with.
"What types of people have you no respect for?"
I can't stand hypocrites. I lose all respect there.
"People who fake mental illnesses for attention."
"SO TRUE. In middle school, I had a friend who faked mental illness. Screwed up my perspective on mental illness and I'm still trying to change that."'
"People who don’t understand the difference between opinion & fact and assume that their opinion is a fact."
"For some reason, I see a crap ton of this in a horror movie group I'm in. Horror is such a subjective genre with many various subgenres and the number of people that just absolutely crap on movies and state their opinions as fact is annoying as hell. Of course the music groups I'm in do the same thing too."
"People who can't admit they are in the wrong and sidestep by blaming you for something that happened years ago."
"My mom does it to me too. If she screws up, she blames me, and once proven wrong, she immediately brings up how I screwed something up from like 14 years ago, and somehow uses that to make me feel like it is my fault."
"People who take advantage of old, senile people. What caliber of piece of crap must you be. Cowards, I spit on you."
"I used to work in supportive housing for folks with various disabilities, one day a client came to be crying because he didn’t have rent for the month. The reason?"
"He was scammed by someone pretending to be from social security. They called him to say that he had to pay back money from a (fabricated) overpayment or he would go to jail. It was extremely sad. Also saw lots of lonely elderly folks get scammed by internet 'girlfriends,' F**k scammers."
"YES! Here is where the true rage comes in! I live in a beautiful city and the amount of litter is revolting. It makes me so angry. I never chuck anything on the damn floor as there will undoubtedly be a bin nearby. It’s just laziness and carelessness."
Why do people litter? It's so gross. Save the world.
The Real Truth
"People who speak 'truth' without trying to understand perspectives outside their own."
"Along those lines, people who describe themselves as 'brutally honest.' Nah, chances are you're just an a**hole."
"People who are rude to wait staff and people who leave their shopping carts around the parking lot."
"I have always believed there are two types of people, those who return the cart to the corral and those who don’t. And this simple action tells me more about a person than a 2 hour long conversation."
"People who have no introspection and always play the victim."
"So I see you have met my brother. In the process of being sentenced for armed robbery but he still blames his pregnant gf with some bs about how it was to support them and regularly busts out the alligator tears to get our mom to put money on his books."
"People who crap on retail workers or lowest wages just to feel better than them with no reason, screw them all."
"I had a coworker like this, dude was brainwashed into believing the franchise license and stock when the giant corporation had very negative company health and it reflected... Most popular chains in retail encourage low wage and try to establish an odd seniority hierarchy."
"People who smoke around children, especially in the same car."
"I 100000% agree with you and I’m a smoker. I don’t care if it’s cold, raining, windy, hot I’m going to stand my a** outside and have a smoke. I don’t smoke inside my house and I never have."
"I think you’d like to meet my neighbor that lives downstairs. She smokes all day long with an infant strapped to her chest."
Well this is a long list of nonsense people. Steer clear.
What would you add to the list? Let us know in the comments below.
So many animals are only dangerous because of their need for survival or hunger.
Humans make the relationship with the animal kingdom worse.
Is there no way to co-exist?
One Redditor wanted to discuss aspects of the animal kingdom.
"Which animal gets undeserving hate?"
Tigers and lions. Have you seen the videos of the tigers and lions who have bonded with their human? It's possible.
Bless Youbat flying GIF by eve_agramGiphy
"Bats. They eat billions of insects. You should be thanking them."
"Vultures, eating dead bodies might seem ugly to some but other animals do the same thing but also murder them so how is just finding something that’s already dead and eating that worse, also eating a carcass removes deadly diseases like botulism from the environment."
"I always show my appreciation to the local goth turkeys."
"Blob Fish... they just get yeeted out of the water and the massive pressure difference makes them look 'strange.' Kinda rude I guess. Like if we get yeeted into space and Aliens would laugh at our disfigured forms and print T-Shirts of it."
"I think I read somewhere that the pressure change causes their cells to explode and that’s why they look so horrific after being pulled out of the water. Dunno how factual that is."
Not the Villain
"Hyenas, partially because a whole generation grew up watching them help kill Mufasa lol."
"I've seen people arguing this before but people hate hated hyenas years before the lion king came out. They were constantly used in folklore as villains and opportunist and were often considered unlucky in most african cultures."Eaglekingoftheskies

"Crows. Yes, I understand the caws can be annoying, but they're far more intelligent than a lot of people give them credit for."
"Possums! They eat pests and won't typically bother you unless rabid or provoked."
"Quick reminder then you need to specify which kind of possum, because not everyone here is from America. There a lots of possums here in Australia but they are completely different from the American kind in temperament! Only annoyance with possums here is if they get into your roof. Meanwhile in New Zealand, possums are ALWAYS a pest."
Bad Movie Vibes
"The guy who wrote Jaws ended up writing another book explaining how misunderstood sharks are. Because the movie Jaws scared everyone, and fishermen began to hunt sharks, making them endangered."
"I was gonna say this! They're not bad guys they are just doing shark stuff! It's the freakin' dolphin types you gotta watch out for. Orcas will kill for fun. A shark is just trying to eat and don't see that well."
"Black Cats.They aren't evil and they don't bring bad luck."
"It's a frequent mistake, but black cats actually bring good luck and blessings from The Void!
"Be sure to tell all your friends. If we work together to insist that black cats are good luck, we can help turn over the discrimination. Also, I have proof that they are good luck - whenever I see a black cat I become happy. Coincidence? I think not!!"
