People Divulge Which Things They Swear To Be True Even Without Tangible Proof

Whenever someone requests you to back up whatever wisdom or knowledge you just imparted, you somehow doubt if whatever you verbalized is actually true.

Without explanation, sometimes you just know things to be absolutely true. Call it your gut or strong spidey sense, but many of us have these moments where we are at a loss for words but innately know something to be undeniably accurate.


Curious to hear examples of this, Redditor TheToastyNuts asked:

"What do you swear on your life to be 100% true?"

These Redditors had very specific memories or thoughts.

Upon Reflection

"I look good in the mirror. I look terrible in photos."

– thepresidentsturtle

What Are The Odds

"That the printer will always run out of ink or that the paper will get jammed when you're already rushing and stressed."

"Happens all the time."

– PresentCrab2517

Rigged Dispenser

"The makers of baby wipes intentionally wrap them in a way so when you pull 1 out the container you get 2-3 and waste them because they are a bitch to put back in."

– Ducati0411

Uncooperative Cart

"Every cart I pull at Walmart has at least one square tire."

– SettledWater

Shoppers And Drivers

"The way people drive and the way they use a shopping trolley are directly linked."

– KatrinaMystery

Downward Spiral

"If I’m having a bad day it can always get worse."

– TheeJimmyHoffa

The beauty of the movie going experience is the fact that we all have different interpretations. Some, however, are very unique.

Goonies In Theaters

"The first time I saw the movie The Goonies in theaters, there was slightly more footage to the movie. Just a few camera angles and scenes here and there. I watched the movie twice in the same theater during the original run, and only opening night had the longer version. 2 weeks later when I saw it again, they played the normal version that is considered official now."

"Edit: Looks like I could definitely be right"

– justinsayin

Honey, I Forgot The Scene

"I swear there was originally a scene in Honey I Shrunk The Kids where the neighbor dad flicks his cigarette butt over the fence and nearly burns up his own son. It's not on any home release I've ever seen."

– heatherbyism

If there was an evolution about America's favorite snack, we missed the memo.

Altered Taste

"They changed the Reese’s recipe."

– whippedcreamcheese

Consistently Inconsistent

"The chocolate is hit or miss - sometimes it's amazing chocolaty goodness and sometimes it's all crumbly and tastes like ash. But NOBODY ELSE KNOWS WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT AND GOOGLE DOESN'T EITHER."

– wellfork

That Waxy Flavor

"A lot of candy companies have switched to vegetable oil instead of cocoa butter in their chocolate and it makes a huge difference in taste (I think). The candy with the vegetable oil always tastes and feels waxy to me."

"I've thought they changed the recipe for Reese's for awhile now too. The ingredients still show cocoa butter though so maybe they changed something else. They're certainly not the same."

– Zozo061050

I find that if you ever change lines at the grocery store because the one you're in seems longer than the others, you are gravely mistaken.

Because the moment you step out of line, the new line somehow becomes much longer.

Come on. We all know this to be 100% accurate.

There is nothing people hate more than when a major turning point in their favorite TV show is spoiled for them.

Friends were undoubtedly lost over the fate of Derek Shepherd on Grey's Anatomy, fights broke out over who killed Omar Little on The Wire, and the identity of "A" on Pretty Little Liars.

The anger of these devoted viewers becomes more and more ironic with each passing year, as they eagerly rewatch these shows on a semi-regular basis.

Despite knowing every possible twist, turn, surprise kiss, or unexpected death.

This time, however, they don't care, as the mark of a good show is one that creates a world we just want to reenter over and over again.

Perhaps the lack of any possible "spoilers" only increases our enjoyment.

The Worst Parts About Being Left-Handed

Roughly 12 percent of the world's population is left handed.

Studies have shown that being in this distinct minority comes with a number of advantages.

Indeed, four the last seven Presidents of the United States were all left-handed,

And considering Phil Mickelson, Rafael Nadal and Oscar De La Hoya are all left-handed as well, it seems lefties are at an advantage on the field or in the court or arena.

Though, if you were to speak to a left-handed person about their experience, they'll more than likely bemoan all the disadvantages of being a lefty.

Of which, there are admittedly several.

The Best Sitcom Characters Of All-Time

There is little more comforting than lounging on the sofa, and binging your favorite sitcoms.

What ultimately makes sitcoms so comforting, in addition to the clever writing and improbably affordable apartments, are the characters.

Why Friends continues to gain a new legion of fans, even nearly 20 years after its finale, is the fact that those watching often want Monica, Chandler, Rachel, Ross, Joey and especially Phoebe to actually be their friends.

Or wish their own friends' dynamic was more like that iconic sextet.

Indeed, people would be much less hesitant to show up for work if they knew The Office's Jim or Pam would be waiting for them, or think that their school days might have been more pleasurable if taught by Abbot Elementary's Janine Teagues.

Characters who are so lovable, it almost breaks our hearts that they aren't real.
