Reddit, how would you feel about a law that bans radio stations from playing commercials with honking/beeping/siren noises in them? by san69cor in AskReddit

Usually it involves a trial period of prohibition. When I brought this up like a year ago not enough agreed it was a problem, but I might bring it up again since so many people seem against it this time around, so clearly there is a good chunk of the community that dislikes these too.

I'm a mod here and I hate these stupid circlejerk questions, unfortunately, the way this is written doesn't really break any rules. It borders closely on 5, but not enough to warrant removal. Trust me I would love nothing more than to pull the question, but unless we make a rule to prohibit these, I can't.

What would be the worst items to find in a second hand store? by MattyLeeT in AskReddit

A jigsaw puzzle with a single missing piece. It's so frustrating to put a lot of time into something only to never be able to fully complete it.

A voodoo doll that looks like you and is wearing your clothing.

What is a green flag in someone that makes you think 'they're a good person'? by twows995 in AskReddit

[–]-eDgAR- 52 points53 points  (0 children)

They don't make fun of someone because of something they enjoy because it's "not cool".

For example, this scene in Freaks and Geeks when Daniel finds out about them playing Dungeons and Dragons, he doesn't make fun of them for doing something they clearly loved, in fact he asked to join them.

What two characters played by the same actor would be most freaked out if they suddenly switched places? by twilighttruth in AskReddit

If their brains switched bodies I think Christian Bale in The Machinist and Patrick Bateman in American Psycho would be a fantastic freakout. Imagine Bateman waking up rail thin in a shitty apartment and how badly he would flip out. Craziest Freaky Friday ever.

Leonardo DiCaprio's characters in Titanic and The Revenant.

Imagine Jack finding himself fighting for survival in the harsh wilderness and Hugh finding himself on this lavish beast of a boat.

Teachers of Reddit: What's the weirdest thing a student has accidentally send instead of/with his/her homework/assignment? by ReneAnd in AskReddit

[–]-eDgAR- 1581 points1582 points  (0 children)

This wasn't to a teacher, but I almost accidentally sent this gif instead of my resume when I was applying for a job. I was straight out of college and didn't really know what I was doing so I had my resume saved in this random folder that I used as a catchall for things. The gif was right next to my resume alphabetically and I misclicked on it when attaching. Good thing I realized what I had done right after I hit send and Gmail has the option to unsend if you are fast enough.

What’s the weirdest sex dream you’ve ever had? [NSFW] by otrable in AskReddit

We both turned into cartoons, but the world around us stayed the same. Felt like being in Who Framed Roger Rabbit? and banging Jessica Rabbit

What is something extremely dangerous that most people aren’t aware of? by sammp27 in AskReddit

Tires in general, just look at some of the posts on /r/tiresaretheenemy. Your life could easily be ended by a random tire flying off of a semi and hitting you.

What is something that you think about often but never talk about? by ARatherPlumpMango in AskReddit

[–]-eDgAR- 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I often wonder how the world would be if humans had giant bushy tails like squirrels. I could see people styling their tails to stand out, teenagers rebelling against their parents by dying their tail some crazy color ("IT'S NOT A PHASE MOM!"). Magazines would covers like "12 Tail Looks Perfect for Summer" and "Miley Cyrus Shaves Her Tail". People on dating apps and websites would be listing their tail length as a new stat like they do now with height. It just cracks me up to think about how ridiculous the world would be, but I don't talk about it much to people because it's weird.

Yeah, from 2007 and I remember it still somewhat used up until late 2012

What's the most dangerous risk you've taken in your life? by MirkoPrime96 in AskReddit

[–]-eDgAR- 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I mean I've been tested for STDs and I'm clean. The pregnancies I'm saying is because these were in college with girls from campus, which was small. I would eventually see them around and never saw any of them pregnant, but I can't say for sure if any of them did and then got an abortion or something, but I do know that none of them came to me about it.

I've had drunk, unprotected sex on several occasions with girls I had just met. I'm lucky to have never picked up any STDs or unwanted pregnancies.

What's something you're proud of? by vzsax in AskReddit

[–]-eDgAR- 49 points50 points  (0 children)

Most people I know can barely keep track of a pair of sunglasses over a summer, but I have had mine for over 13 years. This is them and I got them at the thrift store when I was 17 for $1.50 and they used to say Trix on the side so I guess they were from the cereal. As you can see they have swirls on them, but most people don't notice that until later on. I was so well-known around campus for my sunglasses that the college newspaper did a joke interview with me for their April fools edition.

What is a subject that you have extensive knowledge on but never get to talk about? by SalamiSandwhich in AskReddit

[–]-eDgAR- 90 points91 points  (0 children)

Hard to pick just one, but Dahmer is definitely at the top of the list after reading "My Friend Dahmer" which is a graphic novel written by a guy that went to high school with him. It's interesting reading the account of someone that was close enough to observe them before they killed their first person. It's the almost hesrtbreaking story of this weird kid that was having troubling urges and problems at home that led to alcoholism at an early age that no one did anything about. If you want to check it out here is a link to it

Serial killers. I find them fascinating, but outside of reddit I never really get to talk about them with other people without seeming weird.

Also The Twilight Zone. I've seen every episode multiple times and have read "The Twilight Zone Companion" cover to cover a few times. Here's a fun fact not many people are aware of about the show:

The Twilight Zone was one of the first television shows to feature a nearly all-black cast on a dramatic show that was was not dealing with racial issues. This was all because of Rod Serling who was quoted in saying, "Television, like its big sister, the motion picture, has been guilty of a sin of omission. Hungry for talent, desperate for the so-called 'new face,' constantly searching for a transfusion of new blood, it has overlooked a source of wonderous talent that resides under its nose. This is the Negro actor."

The episode that achieved this, "The Big Tall Wish," was part of the first season of the show and was awarded the 1961 Unity Award for Outstanding Contributions to Better Race Relations.
