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.

NSFW Details About Historical Figures Left Out Of History Books

It's very popular to create rumors about certain historical figures to which there is no concrete evidence.

Such as the sexual orientation of Abraham Lincoln or the alleged illicit behavior of Lewis Carroll and Hans Christian Andersen.

Understandably, these mostly baseless, though not necessarily false, theories are left out of history books.

However, there are facts about legends of history which have, indeed, been proven true, but are also left out of history books.

Namely, because it's not the sort of information many would consider in polite conversation, let alone be talked about in schools.

Even if it is no less fascinating than anything else we might learn.

Conspiracy Theories People Absolutely Believe Are True

We've sure been hearing the term "conspiracy theory" a lot lately.

And if history has taught us anything, it's that it would do us all good to avoid them altogether as they are rooted in falsehoods tied to clandestine government plans and sinister plots–which, yeah, doesn't sound good.

But like anyone spinning a rumor, people tend to latch on to spurious information that cannot be verified by science or fact because it's just easy to go along with it without taking the time for research.

But there are some conspiracy theories that do make us wonder if there is something to them.

You don't have to be acquainted with someone to know enough about the kind of person they are.

Observing their attitude around people or what clothes they wear can easily give away a stranger's temperament that identifies them as either superficial or genuine.

Of course, being judgmental based on one's appearance is not an unfair assessment. However, you know deep down inside, we all have the predisposition to do exactly that.

Affairs and infidelity are sadly a more common part of life than we care to admit.

People cheat. it seems to be part of the human condition.

Are we meant to be monogamous?

That's a story for a different article.

I say though, if you're going to cheat... have some basic human decency.

Don't cheat with people you all know.

And how are BFFs not automatically off limits?
