What do most people seem to really dislike that you enjoy?

When it rains on my day off. I love the idea of not feeling forced to leave my house because I should be productive on my day off. Rain also really relaxes me when I’m home.

My sense of humour.

I saw both the Disney Star Wars movies when they first came out in theaters. I thought they were awesome, my friends thought they were awesome, even my parents enjoyed them. We all thought they were the shit, and still think that. Then I got on Reddit and found out where my state's salt budget went.

Snow. It's the weirdest thing--I loathe winter with a passion, but when it snows, I love it. My reasoning is that if it's gonna be this asininely cold, it might as well snow. It snowed here two days ago. The roads are still a sheet of ice. Everyone else it pissed and won't stop complaining, but I'm actually really enjoying it.

Other than grocery bags, what is something your household seems to hoard for no apparent reason?

past due bills. You'd think they'd learn I have no intention of paying them by now

Sauces. Want some mild and hot Taco Bell packets? Chick Fil A Sauce? My house is the spot.

Bobby pins. They're freaking everywhere.

We seem to have twice as many hangers as we have clothes.

MyPackage and 2Undr have little pouches for your boys to keep them from sticking to your legs and shit.

You can bring one person back from the dead, no strings attached. Who would you choose?

That's a tough one.

My Mom and Dad both passed away in the last two years.

I don't know how I'd choose between them.

My youngest son. He would have been one year old in a few weeks.

My fiancé’s dad.

In movies, gunshot casualties usually "drop dead". What is the actual process of a death by gunwound on the body?

In movies, gunshot casualties usually "drop dead". What is the actual process of a death by gunwound on the body?

"Ouch"...pain...pain...blood drain..."ouch"...slowly passing out...possible death. If it is a small caliber bullet, the longer the process and it depends on where you are shot, if the bullet passed through, and what type of bullet. Sometimes you won't even know you were shot if you didn't see or hear the gun go off.

I'm going to assume it's bleeding out, if it hits an artery or the heart you would bleed out almost instantly. Any other location, like stomach or liver would be extremely hard to recover from depending on the time period of the movie. Piercing the stomach would mean death in a Western or Civil war era movie, but I don't know about modern day. It would definitely hurt like a bitch though, which can be an explanation to your "drop"

If you are shot through the head, you will be almost instantaneously killed. You would lose all body function and "drop dead".

College professors of Reddit, what’s an astonishingly intelligent argument/ observation a student of yours has made in an essay or a paper?

"Astonishingly intelligent arguments/observations" are never made in essays/papers required for a class.

I taught at a large state school and I have to go with this. Might be different at universities with students of the Ivy League caliber.

I do remember a large number of amazingly horrible papers.

Might be different at universities with students of the Ivy League caliber.

It's not. Ivy Leagues are incredibly easy to do well in once you've been accepted; their median grades are a lot higher than most state schools because they curve to a higher average (Harvard, for example, curves to a B+)

A student said weed cured cancer then I gave him a medal then I ripped a bong in front of the class

Women of Reddit, what is the worst thing a female friend has done to a man, did you speak up about it?

Kicked a bloke so hard in the nuts he peed blood. No reason, she just thought it would be 'funny'.

When over the age of 18, anyone found to falsely accuse someone of rape should be sentenced to time in prison (2 - 3 years IMO).

Attempting to get someone wrongly convicted of rape is almost as immoral and disgusting as the act itself.

Not a Woman but a girl I dated never returned my copy of Watchmen and I’m still kinda upset about it.

not a woman, but I've known three separate women that have falsely accused men of rape. granted, all of them were teenagers, so maybe girls and boys would be more apt than women and men.

Two were because of religious parents who found out they had consensual sex. the other was due to her boyfriend finding out she cheated on him.

What haven't we yet integrated in our daily routine that would be more useful/beneficial than brushing our teeth?

What haven't we yet integrated in our daily routine that would be more useful/beneficial than brushing our teeth?

I think reading's a big one. Reading on a daily routine really helps with memory and critical thinking. It's a hard habit to incorporate into our routines though, because I think we're inundated by other things that draw our attention much more easily (i.e. games, tv, phone, computer, etc.) I tragically fall into the latter category too, but I really want to integrate reading into my daily routine because I think it's like exercising for our brains. You learn new words, you get to experience stories by other people (and sometimes AS other people), and there's nothing you lose in reading.

I think back to my early 20s, and being out at some bar. And being around that one girl, and we all know her, who has to shriek out "Woooo!!!" after every shot.
