It's a fact of life that people can be brutal. Whether it's because a person is downright cruel or because he or she is drunk or angry, they can say some awful things.

My Indian aunt once mistakenly thought a cousin of mine was my daughter and told me American teenagers were trashy and stupid. I don't talk to that aunt anymore...

There is never an excuse to be that cruel, but that doesn't stop people from behaving that way.

Curious about this, Redditor Brilliant-End9428 asked:

"What is the most f*cked up thing someone said to you?"


No Excuse For Cruelty

"Mum's (59) boyfriend got mega drunk a few weeks back, told her that he was "only with her because he pitied her""

"Drunk or not, she wasn't having that. Back to being single."

– astrielx

Worst SIL Ever

"My sister-in-law was joking about how there aren't any male children that will "carry on the family name" when she knows full well that I lost my son at birth."

– otherm0ther

Wrong Reason To Have A Child

""You were our last attempt to save the marriage""

"Thanks, mom. Glad to know I was a failure straight out of the gate."

– Papa_Smurf87

Their Loss

""You're too ugly to buy ice cream from." - Some b**ch to me @ 15"

– Dividebynegativezero

Undeserving Of Being A Father

"When I was 11 my father (who I hadn't seen in 5 years b/c of divorce) showed up at a family Christmas and calmly asked me to not call him 'dad' b/c his new kids didn't know I existed."

– marshfield00

Grandmas Shouldn't Have Favorites

"I was 7 or 8 and I told my grandmother I wanted to be a doctor when I grew up. She told me I would never be smart enough and that I'd be lucky to one day be my cousin's house cleaner."

"My cousin was her favorite grandchild."

"I'm 32 and I still remember it so vividly."

– Jackie_13

ATM

"I hope you realize I'm only using you for your money"

--warlordwinters

No Good Reason For Saying This

"My grandmother and grandfather told 7yr old me if my mom kills herself and my dad dies in Afghanistan they would rather see me rot on the streets than taking me in"

– sugarhornyicetea

That's Not How It Works

"Just dont be depressed. Like bro..."

– SpeakablePerson

No matter who it was that said something that cruel to you, know that you deserve better (and that it might be time to cut someone out of your life).

The day Joe Biden won the 2020 Presidential Election, people literally took to the streets to celebrate, giving an idea that people weren't so sad to see his predecessor leave office.

Indeed, many think so ill of the 45th President of the United States, that people have a hard time even saying or writing his name.

Throughout his tumultuous, often headline-making four years in office, he was frequently referred to as the "worst President of all time."

But was he?

Redditor Unaball3r was curious to hear who the Reddit community considered the all time worst leader of the free world, leading them to ask:

"Who was actually the worst President in US History and why?"

It's hard to beat great sex.

But, particularly for singletons, sex isn't always easy to come by.

Then too, as far too may people know, there is also never a guarantee that sex is going to be great.

Luckily, sex is far from the only known form of pleasure.

Some might even say there are other things which are even more pleasurable than sex, and likely much easier to come by.

Redditor sparklingshanaya was curious to learn the things people find as or more pleasurable than sex, leading them to ask:

"What is an alternative but equivalent pleasure to sex?"

We all pride ourselves in knowing random bits of trivia.

While "useless knowledge" is the common parlance for these little fun facts we, often randomly, know, that seems an unfair label.

After all, who knows when a subject comes up in conversation, and you might be the only one who can answer a group question.

All thanks to the fact that you know a random piece of knowledge almost no one else on Earth seems to know.

Redditor Just_Free_Tea7 was curious to learn some of these obscure pieces of trivia, leading them to ask:

"What is a fact that you think barely anyone else knows?"
