Is friendzoning the worst or best thing to happen to your friendship?

A now-deleted male Reddit user asked "How to not give a fuck about being rejected/friendzoned?" after finding out that a close female friend was not interested in him romantically. A female user, ObscenePenguin, had this to say in response.



"She's not friendzoning you. You've girlfriendzoned her. Now then, it's a fact universally accepted that most dudes would bone their female friends given the opportunity- however, seeing a female friend only as a girlfriend is girlfriendzoning.

She's not rejected you, she's still your friend. She's just turned you down for a date. She's probably sitting at home thinking 'WTF, have I been girlfriendzoned here? Has this dude only been nice to be for the last 5 months so he could get into my knickers? Was our whole friendship a lie? How am I going to get over this?'



It sucks to be in the girlfriendzone, the more it happens the less you trust men. Seriously, it's shit.

Secondly, she's turned you down because she doesn't fancy you. She said it was because you didn't smoke because she didn't want to hurt your feelings, it was probably the first thing that popped into he head.

So, then - what to do?



You need to remove this girl from your girlfriendzone. Let that shit go. Stay stoic. You can control how you feel, but you cannot control how she feels. Every time you catch yourself thinking about her, imagine her scratching her arse and sniffing her fingers, or picking her nose and eating the boogers- whatever it takes. For the love of God, do not start smoking to impress her.

Romantic rejection sucks, bro, but it's not about you, it's about her-so there's nothing you can do.

Now's the time for a little self improvement. Stop using the term 'friendzone', when women hear it we translate as 'immature neckbeard with misplaced sense of entitlement' - it's not attractive. Dealing with any kind of rejection is a challenge, and challenges are what make us tough."

There are few things more satisfying than a crisp $20 bill. Well, maybe a crisp $100 bill.

But twenty big ones can get you pretty far nonetheless.

Whether it's tucked firmly in a birthday card, passing from hand to hand after a knee-jerk sports bet, or going toward a useful tool, the old twenty dollar bill has been used for countless purposes.

I realize that school safety has been severely compromised and has been under dire scrutiny over the past decade and of course, it should be. And when I was a student, my safety was one of my greatest priorities but, some implemented rules under the guise of "safety" were and are... just plain ludicrous. Like who thinks up some of these ideas?

Redditor u/Animeking1108 wanted to discuss how the education system has ideas that sometimes are just more a pain in the butt than a daily enhancement... What was the dumbest rule your school enforced?

One of the golden rules of life? Doctors are merely human. They don't know everything and they make mistakes. That is why you always want to get another opinion. Things are constantly missed. That doesn't mean docs don't know what they're doing, they just aren't infallible. So make sure to ask questions, lots of them.

Redditor u/Gorgon_the_Dragon wanted to hear from doctors about why it is imperative we always get second and maybe third opinions by asking... Doctors of Reddit, what was the worse thing you've seen for a patient that another Doctor overlooked?

When we think about learning history, our first thought is usually sitting in our high school history class (or AP World History class if you're a nerd like me) being bored out of our minds. Unless again, you're a huge freaking nerd like me. But I think we all have the memory of the moment where we realized learning about history was kinda cool. And they usually start from one weird fact.

Here are a few examples of turning points in learning about history, straight from the keyboards of the people at AskReddit.
