'Never Again' Tales Ranging From Silly To Very Serious

We've all got our fair share of "never again" moments. Some might be related to debauchery, for example, swearing off tequila after an unfortunate binge-drinking episode back in college. Some may involve moments of staggering stupidity. Other "never agains" might be a little more serious, like refusing to work in a restaurant or in retail. This r/AskReddit thread covers all of those bases and more, with plenty of "facepalm" moments to keep things light.

People Share Shady Secrets From Their Industries

It's no surprise that many professions cut corners and do some sketchy shit to make an extra buck or save themselves a hassle. Many businesses claim their wares are homemade when they're actually mass-produced, or in food, pre-prepared and frozen. Some places commit highway robbery by upcharging at a serious margin. These are some pretty widely accepted (albeit unfortunate) truths. But u/CircleBox2, in the name of demystification, asked redditors to share the darkest secrets from their industries. And some of them are shadier than we expected.

Very Dumb Things People Once Believed

Humans aren't perfect. We make mistakes. We goof. And sometimes our gullible natures get the best of us. Redditor u/Vinyl_BunBuns provided us with ample proof of this gullibility yesterday with an especially entertaining r/AskReddit thread. They asked followers of the page to share the absolute dumbest things people have believed. And while some of the examples are a testament to pranksters and impressionable child-minds, others are a wonderful reminder that kids (and adults) have absolutely incredible imaginations.

While we miss the lack of responsibilities that came with childhood, and being blissfully unaware of the absolute shit-show that is adulthood, we don't miss the weird and debilitating fears we grappled with when we were young..Redditor u/Shay_la_da reminded us of those phobias when they asked the AskReddit community to share the ridiculous fears that tortured them as kids.
