Even though we always root for the hero in film, television and books, it's often the villain which lingers in our memory.

From Captain Hook to Regina George, it's hard not to admire their calculating, duplicitous ways, not to mention their often snazzy attire.

Interestingly, the villains who often terrify us the most are those that we find ourselves relating to in some capacity.

If it doesn't necessarily justify their actions, in the end, being aware of what led them to become what they are makes us all the more fascinated, and even more terrified of them.

Sometimes, we might even find ourselves flat out rooting for them... Is Miranda Priestley really the Devil in The Devil Wears Prada?

Redditor Chadderbug123 was curious to hear people's favorite villains who, deep down, may have been right, leading them to ask:
"What villain was terrifying because they were right?"

Sometimes the best part of rewatching your favorite movies, particularly after a significant lapse of time, is noticing things you didn't notice before.

Such as the fact that Ferris Bueller''s Ed Rooney might have only been making sure that a mischievous socio-path didn't get away with constantly feigning illness.

Or that The Parent Trap's Meredith Blake's anger might have come from the fact that she was nearly drowned by a pair of 11-year-olds.

Making one question, who is the real villain here?

Foods With Textures That People Can't Stomach No Matter How It's Served

Sometimes not liking a food is just a matter of trying it prepared a different way—sautéed instead of boiled, raw instead of cooked, chopped up really small.

But sometimes there's just no way to hide the texture of a particular food and, if you don't like it, it will ruin any dish it's a part of.

We have a problem with guns.

Not just America, but humans in general.

Too many lives have been lost.

That's why it's so scary to think about a moment when one is directly pointing at you.

And you lived to tell the tale.

This might not surprise you much but you should never trust the glass in hotel rooms.

A relative of mine refuses to use glasses and would rather drink out of cups she brings with her. She said it was because hotel cleaning staff are so stretched for time that they will clean the glasses with the same rags they'd use to clean the bathrooms.

When she said that, it put me off using glasses put out in hotel rooms ever again.

But that's not the only horror story from the land of hotels, five star or otherwise.

Adult Problems People Were Woefully Underprepared For

As teenagers, most ambitious pre-adolescents looked forward to life beyond high school where the freedom for them to live their lives without the supervision of parents or guardians awaited them.

But when they barreled through phases of teen angst, obtaining driver's licenses, and finally being able to see an R-rated movie without sneaking into one, nothing could really prepare them for adulting.

Being told how to be an adult is one thing. Navigating through adulthood on your own, however, can be a very sobering experience.
