There's a new docuseries on HBO right now titled Q: Into the Storm and it's a truly maddening affair. In case you've been living under a rock, those who subscribe to the QAnon conspiracy theory believe that the Democratic Party is protecting a secret cabal of Satan-worshipping cannibalistic pedophiles who run a global sex trafficking ring and plotted to undermine former President Donald Trump during his tenure. That's a mouthful, right? And yes, it's as utterly absurd as it sounds. It's been entirely disproven, but that hasn't stopped people from believing in it––and plotting to overturn the results of the last election.

Check out the series if you're truly missing the last time you slammed your head into a wall and gave yourself a serious concussion.

After Redditor SusAlexBS (username totally checks out) asked the online community, "What's the dumbest thing that someone has tried to make you believe in?" people talked about their experiences.

When I was in high school, there was a rumor that a girl had broken into a guy's locker and set his belongings on fire after he broke up with her. (I'm still not sure if that's true or not, but I remember that girl and let's just say that I wasn't a fan.) There was another rumor that one of the guys was having an affair with one of the teachers (which turned out not to be true, thank goodness, because I don't think any of my teachers were dumb enough to lose their careers over a relationship with a minor).

After Redditor RM_Fan234 asked the online community, "What was your high school 'rumor' that turned out to be true?" people shared their stories. Notice a certain theme?

For the life of me, I can't understand why people think it's appropriate to ask a couple when they're going to have a baby. For one thing, it's intrusive as hell. You might as well just say, When are you guys going to be ditching the condoms? Secondly, you don't know what people may want for themselves. Some couples don't want to have children––some women definitely don't want children––and that's totally okay.

After Redditor sirous38 asked the online community, "What is the question you always avoid answering?" people told us all about the questions they get that irk them the most.

Ever herniated a disc? A few years ago I got to experience what that is like and it was horrible. In fact, I herniated two. 0/10––would not recommend. Physical therapy wasn't fun either, just so you know. Let's just say I'm thrilled that that period is behind me.

After Redditor organized_mud asked the online community, "What's the most physically painful experience you've had and what did it feel like?" people shared their stories.

After reading some of these, it's safe to say I consider myself very lucky. Ouch.

Children can be creepy.

Yeah, they're cute and all but deep down? They're thinking of ways to creep you out. Take the matter of past lives, for instance.

Years ago, I saw a film called Audrey Rose. It starred Marsha Mason as the mother of a young girl who appears to remember her past life as the daughter of a weird-@ss Anthony Hopkins. It was more of an unsettling drama than a horror film, but worth a watch.

After Redditor TapiocaTuesday asked the online community, "Parents, what spooky 'past life memory' has your kid uttered?" people shared their stories.
