Adventurous people will tend to give almost anything a try at least once, just for the sake of it.

Others might only be willing to try certain things if there was an incentive to do so, such as money or an exciting prize.

But more often than not, there are many things that people will absolutely never do, no matter the circumstance, no matter the amount of money offered.

Redditor chezjvr was curious what things would be an unequivocal hard pass for the Reddit community, leading them to ask:

"What will you never ever do under any circumstances?"

Hey, you never know...

"Lottery."

"Working at a gas station watching people blow their whole paycheck and win $200 after spending $600."

"Then celebrating by buying more."

"'I won $200!'

"B*tch you’re in the hole by $400, this week." - Crystalbow.

The sun is good enough for me.

"Use a tanning bed." - darecountydramaqueen.

My Health Comes First.

"Smoke a cigarette."

"My parents have smoked since they were teenagers and I had a terrible cough the entire time I lived with them."

"Since I've moved out, the cough is gone."

"Also my mom has COPD from smoking and has yet to quit, even though her dad died of COPD from smoking."

"I know how my mom will die and I hate it. I'm never touching that garbage." - UrdnotChivay·.

"A tame one, but smoke tobacco."

"My dad has always smoked like a chimney and I've seen what it's done to his lungs, his teeth, the way he and his clothes smell."

"I love the man, but there was no greater deterrent to me smoking growing up than seeing what happens to someone after 40 years of near-constant smoking."

"It's just disgusting."

"I'm not the sort of person who has ever done drugs more than a couple of times, and I stopped drinking years ago, primarily because I'm an a**hole that I don't like when drunk and high, but I'd still rather do those than smoke cigarettes, and it's frankly baffling that cigarettes are still legal and everywhere." - Koras.

There's Only One For Me.

"I would never cheat on my wife."

"My personal belief is that there is no morally acceptable excuse for doing so." - irish2685.

I Can Smell Your Lies

"Trust a fart."

"That’s my #1 life rule. Never trust a fart."- leftofthenormal.

I Do... NOT

"I will never marry you."

"We can be friends though."

"I’m cool with that."- Constant_Fig_8648.

Whether it goes against your personal beliefs, makes you feel uncomfortable, or just plain doesn't interest you, it's always OK to say "no".

It's highly believed that it is important to learn history as a means to improve our future.

What is often overlooked is that what is taught in history class is going to be very different depending on where you went to school.

And this isn't just internationally, even different regions of the United states will likely have very different lessons on American history.

This frequently results in our learning fascinating, heartbreaking and horrifying historical facts which our middle or high school history teachers neglected to teach us.

Redditor Acherontia_atropos91 was curious to learn things people either wished they had learned, or believe they should have learned, in their school history class, leading them to ask:
