There are some things you just straight-up should NOT do in public. Some things are just meant to be done strictly at home, or frankly, not at all. Certain acts are just weirder than others.

u/Perfittb asked: What is the strangest thing you've witnessed someone do in public?


Horrifying.

I was stopped at a red light and there was a lady in the car next to me. She was having really sporadic head movements. Not the head-bob dancing type, but just kinda crazy. After like 10-15 seconds of this her neck went limp and her head just hung forward.

The light turned green and I hesitated a moment wondering if she needed medical care and was about to pull in front of her to check on her when her head abruptly jerked back up and she drove off without hesitation.

Maybe he didn't notice.

I saw a dude with a suitcase, completely naked entering our train. His facial expressions were normal, he looked concerned and stared at his phone the entire time until I had to get out.

How could someone do that?

I moved to a town which had a bit of a bad reputation. The first thing I saw when I was bringing boxes in was a man walking down the street with a bunch of plastic bags on fire. He was holding it like a lantern and was so casual about it despite flaming plastic dripping onto him.

Actually like the town though. It's got character.

Onions should not be eaten like that.

I saw a woman on the train pull out an entire raw white onion from her purse then proceed to eat it like an apple as if it were nothing. She was tearing up and didn't seem to be enjoying it much.

Sounds fun.

Once saw a man standing next to an extremely expensive looking home jump headfirst into a hedge, pull himself out, look at the hedge, and jump back in headfirst.

He continued to do this for a while until someone nearby asked him if he were okay, to which he responded with "don't worry, this is my hedge, I'm just bored".

Still to this day I respect his casual not giving a f**k vibe.

Guess it was useful.

I wrestled in high school and was down about 20 pounds for a tournament. We were walking back to the hotel after weigh ins and my pants kept falling down, as I forgot a belt.

One of my buddies dad's asked me if I needed a belt, and I said sure do thinking it was a joke, or maybe he had an extra one in the hotel. He proceeds to take of his belt, give it to me, pulls a second belt out of his front pocket, and puts in on.

No idea why he had two identical leather belts with him that day, but I appreciated it.

THAT'S a story.

I was in a bathroom stall the other day when a little boy, maybe 6-7 years old, goes in the stall beside me. He sits on the toilet and starts humming some made up tune. That was already a little funny but nothing uncommon

Then he starts aggressively humming louder and louder. It gets to the point where it's almost just shrieking and then he suddenly stops because he's out of breathe.

Two seconds later I here a plop in the toilet and he then begins singing "Hallelujah! Hallelujah! I just pooped in the toilettttttttt!" and repeats this a few times. I was almost passing out from trying to hide my laughter.

We don't believe them either.

Once saw a man unicycling through a mall parking lot with groceries bags in each hand. During a snow storm. No one ever believes me.

They don't believe me when I first tell them and assume I said bicycle. They really don't believe me when I correct them and say "no... unicycle, one wheel. I wouldn't have bothered telling you this if there had been two wheels."

Sleep paralysis demon in person.

An old dude put down his suitcase and started doing a weird interpretive dance. The worst part is that this was in a crowd of hundreds of people and he was staring me down specifically with a creepy smile.

I was a couple hundred feet away and when I looked back there he was. Smiling. Dancing. Eyes locked on to me.

Wonder why the other was uncomfortable.

I was driving home from the grocery store and saw 2 guys standing at a bus stop. One had all his clothes off on the sidewalk while shaving his body. The other looked very uncomfortable. I don't think anyone believes me.

What is in the water in the United States that compels people to walk around in their homes with their shoes on? Try doing that in South Korea––people would be so mortified. I have a sibling whose apartment is carpeted from wall to wall and who walks around inside with his shoes on all the time, tracking in any manner of dirt and dust from outside. Egad! I get chills just thinking about it. And as an American, it's something I've noticed people from other countries love to comment on.

We learned a lot more about things that are considered normal in other countries after Redditor monitonik asked the online community,

"What's normal in your country that's considered weird in others?"

The brain a fascinating part of the body. No, its the most fascinating.

Scientists have said for years that we'll never know all about the brain and its functions.

So if it is so fascinating and so capable and awesome... why does it stall? Why does it overload?

Why aren't we all gifted with photographic memory? The brain definitely has a full storage issue. And we all suffer.

Redditor u/MABAMA45 wanted everyone to fess up to and just embrace all the things the brain can't handle by asking:

What can your brain just not comprehend?

Going to college is an exciting experience. You meet new people, learn about the world and the inner workings of society, and make lasting friendships. As fun (and expensive *cough, cough*) as higher education can be there is a reason that only one-third of the US population 25 and older have been able to complete a four-year degree program. It is hard and burnout is real.

Going through university was filled with both happiness and sometimes tears for me. I loved school and found my classes interesting, dove into extracurriculars, and had that perfectionist drive to get all A's... totally not sustainable. It hit me I was totally burnt out about two years in while enrolled in an algebra class.
