Everyone has their travel bucket list.

The list of places they absolutely must visit before they die.

There are those, however, who also have a rather different list of destinations.

The places that have no intention to visit.

Be it for safety concerns, language barriers, or simply that there's nothing at these places that calls to them, there are places some wouldn’t dream of spending the time and money to visit.

Redditor TrooperJohn was curious to hear which places were at the very bottom of the list of travel destinations for his fellow Redditors, leading them to ask:

"What is a popular tourist destination you have no interest in visiting?"


Oasis in the desert? No thank you.

"Dubai."

"Why and whats special about it?"

"Its a modern city in a desert."- Maximum_Calendar_791.

"Dubai."

"A fake city with fake people, no human rights, where the world's tallest buildings hide corruption and slavery in their shadows."

"It's like someone decided to take every problem of mankind and concentrate it in one spot."- PayNoNoticeOfMe.

"Dubai one i think it is ugly two I would die in two minutes of me being there I can't stand anything above 40 c°."- BookWormPerson.

One of the seven wonders is one too many for me.

"The pyramids. "

"Too many horror stories of Egypt."- Aemiom.

Landlocked.

"Not really a destination, but taking a cruise."- Shortbus_Playboy.

Mountains aren't really my thing.

"Everest."

"Just why."

"You use a bunch of money to get in there them come down."

"And trash your whole way there. It's literally a corner in the Earth insufferable for humans and we still made a way to go there to trash it."- ACLullaby.

It's in my own backyard... but still not interested.

"I have lived about 15km away from the Burj Khalifa ever since it was made."

"I could not care any less besides the occasional pointing out the 'shiny tall building' to my nieces.- legolosss.

The pictures are enough for me.

"Mount Rushmore."

"Friends who've made the journey to Mount Rushmore mostly say it was no big deal and not worth the effort or expense to travel there."- Back2Bach.

Hustle and Bustle? No thanks.

"Anything busy.'

"Whether it's cities, structures, I don't care."

"I'd rather go to a boring empty quiet place than a place full of people."- TheSmeep.

They're watching us.

"That creepy a** place in Japan with all the realistic dolls."

"No thank you."

Some dream of paying a visit to these places.

Others hope they never have to set foot there, and will choose to leave it to the other millions of tourists.

To each, their own.

You know what would be great?

If society could just stop with arbitrary dress codes. If you're not working with the public, why should you have to dress up so much? If you're a police officer, then it makes sense that you'd wear a uniform that identifies you as a police officer. If you're Ted from IT who sits in the backroom all day, I really don't see why you have to come in every day in a suit and tie.

Let's just toss them out, shall we?

People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor Levels2ThisBrush asked the online community,

"What should be socially acceptable but isn't?"

As much as many of us don't like to disrupt the status quo, there is only so much time a person can tolerate a miserable situation before things become so unbearable that they ultimately have to peace out.

For some people, it takes a while for them to reach a breaking point. Eventually, there comes a time when they realize their self-worth is more important than continuing to please others who don't appreciate them for the sake of keeping up with appearances.

As we enter into the summer months, people now have to decide whether or not they want their morning coffee to be hot or iced.

Lucky for them, it's delicious either way.

One could make an argument that foods that are equally delicious hot or cold are perhaps the best, or at least the most reliable.

And this can include foods which are not customarily sold both hot and cold (cold pizza anyone?).

Redditor NectarineOther4989 was curious to hear which foods people enjoy either hot or cold, leading them to ask:

"What is something that tastes good both hot and cold?"

People Dispel Common Hoaxes Some Folks Still Believe

Those who are truly superstitious have trouble shaking off customs which others might find somewhat silly.

These include holding your breath when passing a cemetery, throwing salt over your shoulder after spilling it, or not stepping on cracks for fear of breaking their mother's backs.

But even though it has been irrefutably proven that there is absolutely no validity to these superstitions, these same people will likely never stop performing these customs.

Nor will some others ever stop believing myths and hoaxes which have likewise proven to be one-hundred percent false.

Redditor Jimbo_Jigs was curious to learn the things people will never stop believing, despite ample evidence to the contrary, leading them to ask:

"What is proven to be a hoax but people still believe it to be true?"
