Sometimes when people speak, they leave you stunned.

You have to wonder what is running through people's minds.

Compliments are lovely until they sound like a reason for a restraining order.

Redditor dannydevitocuddleswanted to hear about the things people have said to others, thinking they were trying to make a person feel good, but just left bewilderment. So they asked:

"What's the weirdest compliment you've ever received?"

I lead with simple honesty when complimenting. Be me...

Umm...

"Was told I have a beautiful brain while doing a paid MRI study."

"I guess seeing the brain is just really cool for that person. Maybe it was the fact that he was seeing a real life active brain and the person using it, when usually any other picture of a brain is from an unloved textbook. It’s crazy to think that our whole world is stored in like five pounds of sentient flesh."

"One of my daughters’s classmates saw me walking into school. When he found out I was her mum he said to her, 'Man, your mum looks like she could snap someone in half with those legs!' Thank you, leg press machine!"

"I've been chubby for years but when I was younger I was in gymnastics. Early high school I went to a friend's house for a little get together grill party thing. Some of the kids were dancing and tumbling and whatnot in the huge lawn they had. I proceeded to do a long a** string of cartwheels as I could still do it even as chubby as I had gotten. My friends were stunned. It was great xD."

Sound Off

"I have a perennial baby face and am a pretty quiet/shy individual but have a deep voice. Someone in one of my classes held the door so I said thanks. The girl holding the door did a double take and shouted 'WAIT THATS WHAT YOU SOUND LIKE???' And honestly that'll stick with me for the rest of my life."

Many people value solitude, and having time to themselves.

For others though, loneliness can be a crippling feeling.

Having no one to talk to or spend time with can get wearying after an extended amount of time.

Something many people know more than ever after the global pandemic hit in spring of 2020.

But while some people simply succumb to being lonely, others will find ways to help them cope with, if not completely forget, being all alone.

Redditor No_Blackberry_6286 was curious to hear the different ways people have of coping with their loneliness, leading them to ask:

In this day and age of advancement, it's crazy how so many things leave our heads scratching.

Like how in 2022 is such and such still around?
