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.

"Goodbye" signs in various language seen at Disneyland's "it's a small world" attraction

All languages have certain words that roll so beautifully off the tongue.

It's no wonder why listening to vocal arias from operas and oratorios–which are typically in languages other than English–can be such a satisfying experience.

Examples coming to mind that are pleasant to the ear include, "Un Bel Di Vedremo" from the Italian opera Madame Butterfly and "Au fond du temple saint"–a duet from the French opera, Les pêcheurs de perles.

Movies are one of the greatest things in the world. I honestly believe that. And I think a lot of people will agree.

However, when talking about movies, a lot of people aren't thinking about documentaries.

Documentaries are movies about the real world, where the cameras capture candid moments, experts are consulted on the subject matter, and the end result is the viewers always learn something new.

My favorite is the documentary series Wild Wild Country, which never ceases to entertain me, no matter how many times I rewatch it. I’m not the only one who loves them, of course.

My best friend found her whole worldview had changed after she saw Blackfish for the first time. My brother pulled up his entire GPA after doing a report on Jon Cartwright’s Lighting Up the World, and of course, no health class was complete without a viewing of Supersize Me.

Redditors love documentaries too and were ready to share their favorites.
