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."

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."

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.

When at work we all often come across situations where you say... "I did not sign up for this!"

I'd never sleep again.

Where I went to school there was a special program that the super smart could enroll in.

It was called 'The International Baccalaureate.'

It's an intense program of elite classes, taught by the finest minds, and triple the homework of everyone else.

It was assumed that every student in the program would go onto rule the world.

Some did. Some most definitely did not.

Others cracked under the pressure of the program and fell apart by sophomore year.

So you never know.

The Kindest Things People Have Ever Overheard About Themselves

There are plenty of backstabbers and those who are purported "friends" throwing you under the bus to save their reputation.

Who knows what else is being said about you behind your back? Is that paranoia? Perhaps.

When we're feeling insecure, we tend to assume the worst about the people we include in our circle. Maybe it's time to stop that.

Because as it turns out, for the most part, people are kinder than we give them credit for, and not everything being discussed about you behind your back are always bad.

We've all had our moments where it took us an embarrassingly long time to grasp a concept.

Something we can laugh off after a few minutes, days or years.

However, sometimes we might encounter people whose grasp of reality, logic and common sense is so off the rails, that we still have trouble shutting our jaws.

We're talking "next-level stupid."

Mind you, this doesn't necessarily mean that these people are stupid themselves.

Rather, they find themselves in a moment where they don't come off looking like the sharpest knife in the box, leaving all those around them dumbfounded.

And inadvertently providing stories which will last them a lifetime.
