You hear the click of your door handle. Without thinking, you hurl yourself out of your desk chair to your bed. You toss whatever it is you don't want your parents or guardians to see, back into the shoebox you've had since 4th grade, and slip it under your bed. Fast, quick, and no questions asked. So, what did you hide as a teenager?


Reddit user, u/Slowbro63s, wanted to hear the horrifying, possibly disgusting, truth when they asked:

Teenagers, what is the worst thing you are hiding in your room?

A Clucking Mess

Giphy

Not a teenager anymore, but a girl I was friends with freshman year of college hid a live hen in her room for over a month.

Not Even I Can Find Them

A few years ago I hid 14 beers in my room. I just found them a couple months ago.

Apparently my hiding spot was so good I forgot about them.

Be Ashamed Of Your Dreams

honestly, a dream journal.

I'm Using All This Duct Tape For Something Else. Honest.

My mom's birthday present.

I'm setting up a pretend murder mystery for her (she's super into True Crime stuff) and if she found any of it she would think I was a serial killer.

You Know There's The Internet, Right?

Fresh Contraband

Febreeze.

I'm technically not supposed to have any, and god forbid my sister finds it, but what would I do with it? Idek who owns the febreeze. It's contraband because my sister likes to spray it in my eyes so now nobody is allowed to have it. I've been considering moving it into the garage.

How Does It Not Smell?

Probably the present we had to buy for a random classmate in high school. It was all food that I bought. But that person wasn't at school that day so I took it back home.

We meant to give it to him later but we forgotten about it. But yeah that was 5 years ago, and it's still here. I'm pretty sure that everyone else has forgotten about it.

Keep Your Nose In Check

Giphy

One time when I was 14 I had my boyfriend over (my parents hated him) when my parents were out to dinner. I asked them too many times when they'd be home and they smelled a rat. They came home early and as soon as the garage door opened I pushed him into my closet.

My parents found me in my room, blushing furiously with my top buttoned wrong. I had dogs. He was allergic.

He sneezed.

I was very grounded. For a long, long time.

At Least They Know About It Now...Right?

I had a porn magazine stash, it was locked in my desk drawer. I left home, forgot about it and then Mum called to say she was going to bring my stuff over and couldn't find the key to my drawer. Oh snap. It was on my keychain so I said hey don't worry about that I'll go through it next time I visit.

Couple of days later "Hey we found the spare key, I packed your stuff up and we'll be over to visit later".

She'd carefully packed up all the porn magazines in a box and didn't say anything about it. I asked her a few years later her reaction and she just laughed it off and said boys will be boys. My Mum's a true hero.

Just. In. Case.

Letters to relatives in the case something happens to me.

I'm a constant over thinker who worries about everything, so I wanted to be prepared in case someone murdered me or something. If someone found them now, they'd look like suicide notes

Have you ever been reading a book, watching a movie, or even sitting down for a fantastical cartoon and began to salivate when the characters dig into some doozy of a made up food?

You're not alone.

Food is apparently fertile ground for creativity. Authors, movie directors, and animators all can't help but put a little extra time and effort into the process of making characters' tasty delights mouthwatering even for audiences on the other side of the screen.

Read on for a perfect mixture of nostalgia and hunger.

AllWhammyNoMorals asked, "What's a fictional food you've always wanted to try?"

Some people were all about the magical foods eaten in the magical places. They couldn't help but wish they could bite into something with fantastical properties and unearthly deliciousness.

Nutritious

"Enchanted golden apple" -- DabbingIsSo2015

"The Minecraft eating sounds make me hungry" -- FishingHobo

"Gotta love that health regeneration" -- r2celjazz

"Pretty sure those are based off the golden apples that grant immortality. Norse mythology I think?" -- Raven_of_Blades

Take Your Pick

"Nearly any food from Charlie and the Chocolate factory" -- CrimsonFox100

"Came here to say snozzberries!" -- Utah_Writer

"Everlasting Gobstoppers #1, but also when they're free to roam near the chocolate river and the entire environment is edible." -- devo9er

Peak Efficiency

"Lembas" -- Roxwords

"The one that fills you with just a bite? My fat a** would be making sandwiches with two lembas breads and putting bacon, avocado and cheese inside. Then probably go for some dessert afterwards. No wonder why those elves are all skinny, eating just one measly bite of this stuff." -- sushister

Some people got stuck on the foods they saw in the cartoons they watched growing up. The vibrant colors, the artistic sounds, and the exaggerated movements all come together to form some good-looking fake grub.

The One and Only

"Krabby patty 🍔" -- Cat_xox

"And a kelp shake" -- titsclitsntennerbits

"As a kid I always pretended burgers from McDonalds were Krabby Patties, heck from time to time I still do for the nostalgia of it all. Many of my friends did the same thing." -- Thisissuchadragtodo

Cheeeeeeeeese

"The pizza from an extremely goofy movie. The stringy cheese just looked magical lol" -- ES_Verified

"The pizza in the old TMNT cartoon as well." -- gate_of_steiner85

"Only bested by the pizza from All Dogs Go to Heaven." -- Purdaddy

Get a Big Old Chunk

"Those giant turkey drumsticks in old cartoons that characters would tear huge chunks out of. Those things looked amazing, turkey drumsticks in real life suck and are annoying to eat."

-- Ozwaldo

Slurp, Slurp, Slurp

"Every bowl of ramen on any anime, ever." -- Cat_xox

"Studio Ghibli eggs and bacon" -- DrManhattan_DDM

"Honestly, any food in anime. I swear to god half the budget no matter what the studio goes into making the food look absolutely delicious." -- Viridun

Finally, some highlighted the things that aren't quite so far-fetched, but still far enough away that it's nothing we'll be eating anytime soon.

That tease can be enough to make your mouth water.

What's In It??

"Butter beer" -- Damn_Dog_Inappropes

"came here to say this. i was pretty disappointed with the universal studio version which was over the top sweet. it was more of a butterscotch root beer. i imagine butter beer to be something more like butter and beer, which wouldn't be crazy sweet, but would have a very deep rich flavor" -- crazyskiingsloth

Slice of the Future

"The microwave pizzas in back to the future two" -- biggiemick91

"I've been fascinated with those for years! They just look so good!" -- skoros

As Sweet As They Had

"The Turkish Delight from Lion Witch & Wardrobe. The real ones I had weren't bad but nothing special." -- spoon_shaped_spoon

"Came here to say this. I know it's a real thing, but I always imagined that it must have been amazing to betray your siblings over." -- la_yes

"You're used to freely available too sweet sweets. For a WW2 era schoolkid, it would have represented all the sweets for an entire year." -- ResponsibleLimeade



Here's hoping you made it through the list without going into kitchen for some snack you didn't actually need.

When a movie rakes in a ton of cash at the box office, the studio that made it has only one thing on its mind: "How do we keep shaking this money tree?"

Unfortunately, that means they make sequels, sometimes sequels on sequels on sequels.

Oftentimes I like to do my best Ghostface impression and aggressively ask people what their favorite scary movies are. Because I personally have a lot! At the same time, I'm also terrified that at any point, I could end up getting my head punched off by Jason Vorhees (Part 8 of the series--best one IMO).

I hate hypocrites. They are the bane of my existence. All you have to do is stand behind your words. How hard is that? You said them. I especially get peeved when people bloviate on a topic and condemn and holler but then when it comes to them doing it... silence.

Redditor u/ErrForceOnes wanted to know about the moments people chose to curiously "pay no mind" by asking... What is a GIANT hypocrisy that no one seems to mind?
