People Share What Truly Has A 0% Chance Of Ever Happening

When a friend is feeling down in the dumps, our instinct is to console them with optimism.


While our intentions are good, the problem is that, in most cases, we wind up offering a glimmer of hope, even if we know with absolute certainty, that it may never happen.

We can only hope that "things will get better" because it just has to. And there are other things that have absolutely no guarantees in life, and we should never mention them.

Curious to hear what those may be, Redditor ThriftyGeo69 asked:

"What truly has a 0% chance of happening?"

These would make life easier. But clearly, life is not easy.

Unless we have the alien technology readily available, we will never be able to time travel.

Conceptually, it just never makes sense to visit the future, which doesn't exist.

And how can you visit the past without theoretically disrupting a life event?

That's why the idea of time travel is romanticized a lot. I'm open to hearing arguments.

People Explain Which Lessons Aren't Taught In History Class But Should Be

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:

Is it even possible?

What are reaching back to?

Life pre-Covid.

Those were the days.

If only we could bring them back.

Redditor hetravelingsong wanted to discuss our new normal in this hopeful "endemic" phase. So they asked:

"What’s something random you miss about pre-COVID times?"

What do you believe?

Is there a GOD in the sky?

Is he guiding us and helping us?

Life is really hard. Why is that is a big entity is up there loving us?

Atheists have taken a lot of heat for what feels like shunning GOD.

What if they've been right all along?

Maybe let's take a listen and see what they really think.

Redditor __Jacob______ wanted to hear from the people who don't really believe all that "God" stuff. They asked:

"Atheists, what do you believe in?"

The list of what irritates me is endless.

I mean... breathing too loud or dust can set me off.

But I'm not alone.
