Sometimes people let their minds run wild when thinking of others.

How do people even conjure such nonsense?

It feels like every person can actually be living in their own personal tabloid.

The things humans will believe.

Redditor redditusernameiforgo wanted to hear all the tea we sip about ourselves.

So they asked:

"What is the weirdest rumour you heard about yourself?"

A lot of my rumors were dull. I'm disappointed. Tell me yours.

"That I had 6 toes. Not on one foot, but in total."


Bad Kiss

"Somebody spread a rumor that I purposefully gave their cat acid by making out with the cat while I had acid on my tongue. They claim their cat has never been the same. I have never french kissed a cat and I would never risk poisoning an animal."


"I notice you don't deny the acid though."



"That my best friend and I had a threesome with this one dude in high school. Until the day I heard that rumor, I had no idea who that guy was."


"There was a rumor that I had sex with a random guy too! Apparently he was the one who started it. When I heard it, someone had to point him out to me because I’d never seen the kid before in my life… smh."


You're Alive!

"That I was dead. I got in a bad car wreck in high school and an off duty nurse was first in the scene. She happened to have a white blanket to cover me up with because I was laying on the ground and it was cold. A classmate drove by and saw my car and a body under a white blanket. I missed the next day of school because I was too sore. When I came in the day after that everyone gasped and said they heard I had died in a car wreck."

"I got Shingles in 7th grade. I was taken out of school on 9/8/2001. Didn't come back for 2 weeks. Apparently, there was a rumor started that I was one of the pilots on 9/11. Kids are wild."


People have more imagination than they give themselves credit for.

Was it you?

"There was a rumor In my high school that I slept with all my friend's moms. Had several classmates who I didn't really know come up to me and with grave concern ask if I slept with their mother."


I love mom

"I killed my mother. This went around in high school. While I was in high school. Like somehow I was going to be there in class with them if this were remotely true. It kept me from getting bullied though. FYI I called my mom yesterday and sang happy birthday to her, so..."


The Twin

"That I was a criminal with a warrant and needed to be in jail. Then the cops showed up because, low and behold, in the paper there was a person who looked f**king exactly like me with a warrant. Got cleared up real fast, but damn if I don't have a near identical twin jacka** out there."


"My mom had frequent visits from the cops because a local petty criminal had the exact same first middle and last name as her. F**king rough being the good clone."


In French

"In school in Ireland a girl asked her ex about me because we were in the same class and in a bid to put her off he told her that I was French, that I wrote poetry, I payed chess and being half English I ate crumpets all the time."

"She still dated me and it made for very interesting conversation on our first date so it kinda backfired on him. What emo teen wouldn’t want to date a French guy who writes poems??"


For Calamari?

"That I was breeding octopuses for their ink to use in my printer. Spread it myself though as a joke in school, but it caught on and the whole year below me believed it and even asked about it to my friends. Been a while ago but still makes me chuckle."


Oh gossip, it keeps fun alive.

What's the weirdest rumor you've ever heard? Let us know in the comments below.

They leave out so many juicy tidbits when teaching history.

Even when we get into college years, there is still a ton you don't hear about until you're a senior citizen.

There should be a "History: XXX" class.

I had to suffer through World Civ. Geesh.

A little extra naughty goes a long way in education.

So tells us some sassy secrets.

Some children get everything handed to them on a silver platter by their parents.

Resulting in their spending their living life without a care in the world, and seemingly zero consequences, and more often than not, full of entitlement.

Some might call these children the luckiest in the world?

But are they?

After all, most of these parents will eventually cut their children off when it's time to enter the real world.

Resulting in their being faced with a cold, hard dose of reality they were not prepared for.

People Break Down Which Things Aren't A Religion But Folks Treat Them Like One

We as humans seem to worship at the altars of many.

Religion is religion.

There is a history and a purpose behind it.

Have we gotten out of hand with treating other aspects of life in a Godlike manner?

It's all too serious sometimes.

Not everyone can afford an upscale night on the town with a swanky menu.

Sometimes the menu is simple and concise.

And it may need to be repeated 3-4 times a week.

The money and food struggles are real.

But that doesn't mean you can't consume foods that are yummy.

Redditor bADDKarmal wanted to discus the foods that signal some life issues but are still yummy.

So they asked:

"What is the best struggle meal?"

Pea soup. My grandma made it with just water, a bag of peas and some spice. So good.


butter get GIFGiphy

"Toast with butter and sugar."


"My dad would always make toast with butter and brown sugar. Toss it in the oven to get a crisp and it was magical."



"Spam and rice. The poor hawaiian kid special."


"I agree with the rice part, but Spam is insanely expensive. It's like $5 a can minimum around here. Not Hawaii."

"A bag of beans that costs $2 or less, some tomatoes and spices. Will last longer, be more filling, and not give you a sodium overload. Honestly, most things go good with rice."


"Had this for lunch today and threw in a couple of eggs too!!"


For food reason...



"I know this is a bit gourmet relative to this, but try the Shin Ramyun brand ramen some time. It is so freaking good, especially the Black one. It's surprisingly close to standard restaurant ramen. About 2 bucks, bigger portion than most ramen. I saw some people doing a huge ramen tournament, and Shin Ramyun won. For food reasons."


"Yes pretty much any Noodle will do. Straight fire."


The Best Basics

"Red beans and rice."


"I was going to say, as long as you have beans and rice, you can live off of that alone for a very long time or potatoes by themselves has more nutrients than any other 1 food and can keep you alive longer than anything else. Potatoes has kept kingdoms and countries from starvation through times on war, droughts, and high inflation."


Good easts...

Grilled Cheese Meme GIFGiphy

"The comfort food I had when poor as hell was grilled cheese that you dip in warm tomato soup. Taste like pizza, I still do it from times to times."


Everyone needs comfort and this food.

The Fav

"Frijoles from a pot with fresh Pico and a tortilla is my fave. Or queso fresco, tomato and onion in a tortilla."


Oh Shin...

"Ramen, alternating out the seasoning and sauces you use each time."


"Try Shin Ramyun. It's bigger and costs a little bit more. But it blows the others out of the water. Especially the Shin Ramyun Black one. Has some vegetables and mushrooms in it."

"I saw Good Mythical Morning do a ramen tournament and Shin Ramyun won. Wasn't surprised at all. You can find it at any Asian market, but it's pretty common in other stores these days. International section often has it."

"It's pretty similar to the ramen you would order in a little mom and pop restaurant. Put an egg in it if that's your thing, but it's good as is."


That’s life...

"Soft fried egg added to a tortilla with cheese and salsa, put back into the pan for a minute to get the tortilla crispy."


"Nice. I do this too but with beans instead of salsa."


"I toast my tortilla first using a skillet. Try that. I sometimes add a slice of ham. That’s life. No salsa for me though."


Use Jiffy

"A couple of cans of tuna (in oil or water, as you like), drained. Prepare a box of macaroni and cheese (the deluxe if you can swing it). Add a little finely chopped onion, half a bag of cooked frozen peas, salt and pepper. Give it a dash or three of celery salt if you have it, really makes the dish. Heat it through, stirring occasionally, serve."

"Hey presto, stove top tuna casserole. Tuna packed in oil will give a better flavor and be more calorie dense. Deluxe mac & cheese has the cheese goop in a pouch instead of the cheese powder. If things are really tight use a couple of boxes of the powder sort."

"Also, beans and cornbread. A bag of pinto beans is cheap, do them in a slow cooker if you have one. Add a little bacon if you have it. Make the cornbread from scratch or use the Jiffy cornbread mix. Yum."

"Ground beef, egg noodles, and packet gravy mix. Can feed a family of four."


"Ground beef is not cheap these days though.


Now I'm hungry. Who else?
