When two weirdos find each other, that's true love.

Let's face it: It's rather refreshing, even soothing to be with someone who understands your eccentricities and might even join in on them.

But to the outsiders who are looking in... it's just weird, okay?

"What do you do with your SO that isn't normal?" –– That was today's burning question from Redditor FinSonic, and we're wondering if they should have even asked.


"Dated a Swede..."

Dated a Swede for a few years. When he taught me how to say "I Love You in Swedish," "Jag Älskar Dig," I remembered how to pronounce it by saying it as Jog Racecar Day. For the rest of our relationship whenever we wanted to say "love you" or would give each other cards etc, we would just say Racecar.

"It's like kissing the void."

We do 'inverted kissing'. Instead of kissing the lips, one of us surprises the other by opening their mouth big and covering the other party's puckered up lips.

It's like kissing the void. It feels really uncomfortable and it's hilarious. She always does it to me when I'm expecting a kiss.

Bonus points if you can kiss the void for over 5 seconds or have your open mouth over their mouth for a long time. We discovered this when I jokingly opened my mouth during a kiss and she started laughing and going 'noooo'

"We have a 17 year running game..."

We have a 17 year running game of stealthily pinning a clothespin to the other's clothes. Sometimes, no clothespin for months, and then bam. One in your armpit.

"She then hid it somewhere..."

Penis drawings. I don't remember who started it but we hide the same penis drawing for the other one to find. She put it in my suitcase when I went away on a hunting trip with my buddies and I had to explain why I had a crudely drawn wang on a sheet of notebook paper packed with my socks. When I returned I hid one in the bottom of her underwear drawer and it took her a few months to find it. She then hid it somewhere and I haven't found it yet, that was five years ago. She told me I'll find it eventually but I'm afraid of where it might be. I have told her that if she dies before me that she is getting buried with it and I win.

"We often..."

We often just stand in each other's way for no reason other than to be annoying.

"I also make weird faces..."

We sometimes will randomly talk to each other in different accents. Mostly scottish. We are canadian.

I also make weird faces at him and he laughs. It feels good to be silly and weird around him and him not making me feel stupid about it.

"It devolved..."

We invented rock, paper, scissors with kissing!

Mouth closed= Rock

Mouth open= Paper

Tongue sticking out= Scissors

It devolved in to doing it randomly so that we could catch each other by surprise and win!

"We have a mating dance..."

We have a mating dance that has gotten increasingly elaborate in the decade we have been together. Example moves: slapping one's own butt, moving one's arms like a choo choo train, one handed clapping.

Some of the moves go out of fashion year to year, but we have a significant repertoire.

"Well, I just wrapped her up..."

Well, I just wrapped her up in a brown blanket, rolled her back and forth in bed and told her "Shhhhh be bread, it's okay, just be bread, shhhh, loaf-girlfriend, it's okay to become bread" while she cackled and screamed "I DON'T WANT TO BE BREAD."

"We sneak up on each other..."

We sneak up on each other and bite each other on the neck to assert "dominance." We use the "dominance" to win trivial arguments like who do our animals love more.

There are few things more satisfying than a crisp $20 bill. Well, maybe a crisp $100 bill.

But twenty big ones can get you pretty far nonetheless.

Whether it's tucked firmly in a birthday card, passing from hand to hand after a knee-jerk sports bet, or going toward a useful tool, the old twenty dollar bill has been used for countless purposes.

I realize that school safety has been severely compromised and has been under dire scrutiny over the past decade and of course, it should be. And when I was a student, my safety was one of my greatest priorities but, some implemented rules under the guise of "safety" were and are... just plain ludicrous. Like who thinks up some of these ideas?

Redditor u/Animeking1108 wanted to discuss how the education system has ideas that sometimes are just more a pain in the butt than a daily enhancement... What was the dumbest rule your school enforced?

One of the golden rules of life? Doctors are merely human. They don't know everything and they make mistakes. That is why you always want to get another opinion. Things are constantly missed. That doesn't mean docs don't know what they're doing, they just aren't infallible. So make sure to ask questions, lots of them.

Redditor u/Gorgon_the_Dragon wanted to hear from doctors about why it is imperative we always get second and maybe third opinions by asking... Doctors of Reddit, what was the worse thing you've seen for a patient that another Doctor overlooked?

When we think about learning history, our first thought is usually sitting in our high school history class (or AP World History class if you're a nerd like me) being bored out of our minds. Unless again, you're a huge freaking nerd like me. But I think we all have the memory of the moment where we realized learning about history was kinda cool. And they usually start from one weird fact.

Here are a few examples of turning points in learning about history, straight from the keyboards of the people at AskReddit.

U/Tynoa2 asked: What's your favourite historical fact?
