By far my favorite AMA is the [dude that did time in a Japanese jail](https://www.reddit.com/r/japan/comments/1t09ud/did_time_in_a_japanese_jail_ama/). Basically, guy is an English teacher working in Japan, and his jerk of a friend sent him some pot brownies in the mail from overseas without his knowledge. Marijuana is still *highly* illegal in Japan, and it gets confiscated by customs and he gets arrested. Japanese criminal system has a 99% conviction rate that relies entirely on confessions, and Japanese police are allowed to keep you for 23 days before they have to formally charge you for a crime or let you go, and you don't have the right to have an attorney present while they interrogate you.
Dude is a legend: he knows the police have zero proof that he had any knowledge of his friend sending the edibles, and they can only charge and convict him if he confesses. He endures intense interrogation 4-6 hours a day, 6 days/week, refuses to answer questions with anything but 'no comment' and even trolls the detective by telling long, rambling, nonsensical jokes that don't even translate well. At the end of the 23 days he is released, never having been charged with a crime and no criminal record. He was able to have his wife call in sick for him during the entire time so it had no impact on his employment as well.
that one about the guy who asked a question about barbecuing in the (i think it was) BBW sub and someone politely let him know it was a "sub for fat white chicks" and he replied "well shit yall have fun now"
Actually, and not to be condescending, bbw stands for big beautiful women, any skin color
oh snap. well, thanks for the clarification. my, uh, porn vernacular isn't so great. which I think i am okay with tbh
Well yall have fun.
Im a romantic sap so there was a post i kept returning to in TIFU - OP was along a lake and seemed to see a floating body from afar. Without thinking twice, jumped right in to save the ‘drowning’ person even though she wasn’t a expert swimmer. Only to realise that said drowning man was not drowning but was doing training and there had been other trainees so they had a laugh and i think the two hit it off from the last updates I saw
It was brilliant romcom writing and it fed my loveless life
Edit: omfg my very first award! I am humbled and undeserving thank you - manifesting my love life now
Edit 2: omg second award - is this how other awardees feel like? I’m one of y’all now 😭😭😭

The r/nosleep post by the ~~as~~ alleged search and rescue officer for the US forestry service. Essentially a ~~serious~~ series of spooky stories that are really well put together, and creepy:
Someday, I fully expect to come across a staricase in the middle of the forested wilderness.
Edit: Glad to see this is gaining traction! I thought I'd come to the thread too late, but it looks like people are hanging around a while.
Fun story: I did come across a staircase in a forest where I mountain bike, and I had read this series.
At first my heart dropped and my mouth went dry, but it was one of those little plastic staircases you can find in primary schools and kids play areas. So obviously someone else had read the stories and decided to put the stairs in the forest as a prank.
I still didn't go near it though, I just ignored it and rode on
I read a story about a girlfriend eating dinner at her boyfriend's house with his family, when they start talking about thier blood types. The girlfriend accidently reveals that the brothers can't be related to thier father cause of there blood type.. it destroys the family right in front of her.... They didn't stay together after that....
Man you can’t just say that and not give us a link
Here ya go
This is one of the most terrible stories I've ever read on Reddit. (Sorry the format. I'm using the mobile app).
Ahh that one. I felt so bad for that woman. I hope her life has gotten better since she sent her youngest away.
I remember that one, nothing but sympathy for the mother. I was also pretty pissed off about the smarmy dick moderator who called her a liar because he knew precisely fuck all about genetic disorders and just assumed she was lying. (I knew exactly what disorder she was talking about within the first few paragraphs and it’s not even my field.) I hope he’s not still a mod there.
Guy eats way too many edibles, then tries to make it through a normal dinner with his girlfriend's parents. A masterpiece of comedic writing: https://www.reddit.com/r/tifu/comments/7pafrt/tifu_by_stuffing_my_face_with_edibles_before/?utm_medium=android_app&utm_source=share
Ive never found it again but the guy who works at "unethical used car dealership" or something like that. With a cast of characters including Colossal Redneck, Ratman, Mr. Sarcastic and really shitty owners it was a really fun read
James Corden's AMA is an absolute treasure.
Is that the one where they rip him to shreds telling him what an asshole he is? Like people who have met him or worked with him?
That's the one. Every comment ended with "is it true you're a giant asshole" or some variety of that sentiment. Some where blunt and to the point, others were full creative writing exercises. But they all ended with that 1 sentiment.
Someone please help me find this…a person made a post about a time where they watched this overweight guy start exercising really early in the morning and then he meets this girl and they start running together and it was just such a wholesome story.
I think it was from r/offmychest or something similar. But I just can’t find it anymore. I need help :((
EDIT: I FUCKIN FOUND IT
The pregnant woman who was being investigated by CPS because of the father's past charges of drug possession. The CPS worker came to inspect her home and told her that her baby would be taken away from her at the hospital after birth. She posted on r/legaladvice asking what to do, and people told her that CPS does not investigate pregnant women, and the worker was a poser. Had those Redditors not helped, her newborn baby would be abducted and taken god knows where.
What’s terrifying is how many people were saying if she cooperates she should be fine. It sounds like the lady posing as a DCS agent would have an easy time convincing people it’s stand procedures. There was some incredibly incorrect advice on that post. With such a serious situation, who comments without 100% certainty? Thankfully there were quite a few former DCS employees who commented.

The first story on Reddit I read that raised the hairs on the back of my neck was **"The Office in the Middle of Nowhere"** A guy was hired to clear some bushland on a massive farm in Australia when he and the farmer spot something odd on the property. It was a shipping container, power generators running and security cameras around it just sitting under some trees. They break in to find it was...something very disturbing. You can read about it: https://www.reddit.com/r/LetsNotMeet/comments/1t2uwq/the_office_in_the_middle_of_nowhere/
Does anyone remember the post in r/relationship_advice by a young woman who was eating with her boyfriend at a restaurant and he ordered scrambled eggs (I think) but the cook prepared them in a different way and then in another different way after the boyfriend complained?
And then the whole thing escalated completely, the boyfriend got really mad and they left, but in the following days and weeks he kept going back to the restaurant and ordering scrambled eggs just for the cook to prepare them in every way possible other than scrambled, until it culminated in a fist fight between the boyfriend and the cook. That story was such a wild and slightly homoerotic ride but sadly I can't find it anymore :(
This one about a man who discovered that his wife was cheating and started collecting a bunch of evidence until he could destroy her whole life (and he did it successfully)
Giving everyone a heads up - just read the first post , his updates just further show how much of a hot head and sociopath he is. Complete waste of time.
a woman feared for her non adult sons life because she caught him fucking his uncle (her brothers) wife, they were rural farm folk, and she feared he would literally kill him, but couldn't live with the guilt of not exposing the adult woman she felt was preying on her son.
im gonna need a link for that dawg
I always loved this one:
It's a story about an old guy who played basketball at a YMCA, and said he knew Magic Johnson. No one ever believed him, and one day a bunch of semi-pros were beating everyone's ass and being jerks about it. Old guy goes and calls Magic Johnson, Magic shows up and absolutely dominates them.
There was one where a guy wanted to have a open relationship with his wife. The wife was against it but he convinced her just so he could bang this one girl on tinder. Well the the tinder girl ghosted him while the wife was bringing a bunch of dudes home. Everyone was calling him a dumb ass and rightfully so.
Even in successful open relationships - women are almost always going to have a much easier time finding additional sexual partners.
It's just how the ecconomics of sex work. Men, you have been warned lol.
There are a bunch of these. The worst one had the OP insulting his partner, he didn't though she could pull guys like that since she was "only a 4/10" and should be grateful at least he wanted to bang her.
7 hours. This post sent me down a rabbit hole I didn’t emerge from for 7 hours.
Company-wide email meltdown from auto-responders, still makes me laugh to this days, poor IT guys.
As an IT professional, that is beyond hilarious.
If you or a friend lose someone in your life, gotta read this.
Of all the posts shared here, this one was the one that genuinely got me. It's so accurate. It was devastating to read but in a very comforting way. Thank you u/GSnow
You are welcome.
I need to tell you. What you wrote was probably the one thing that helped me the most through one of the most tragic deaths of my life. I don't know why, but it was. So thank you.
You are welcome. Even ten years later, the fact that people still find it helpful and applicable to such a variety of difficult experiences... that fact continues to surprise me. I'm grateful to you for telling me.
There was a story about how a diving location is one of the deadliest in the world. OP describes what happens when people go in there.
The chilliest part is the last line which goes something like....you have died in clear waters of calm seas in under 4 minutes.
I'll try to dig up the post.
Edit: Found it...it was actually a comment on a post...
Reminds me of the little unassuming patch of river in... England? I think it was England. Except it's incredibly deep and there are rapid currents below the surface. They say it has a 100% fatality rate, but it's hard to estimate, since whatever comes in doesn't tend to come back out, including corpses. And the thing is that it doesn't look any different than any other river.
I think it is called Bolton Strid. The fact that we don't know how deep it is makes it even more scary.
Jesus fuck man. OP of that comment is an incredibly talented writer.
The post by u/morbidmommy11 where she is dealing with a crazy husband and FIL who are so sure that she's going to die in childbirth.. it was terrifying to read.
I still sometimes check to see if there was an update... I hope she's ok
this is the post that actually prompted me to create a reddit account so i could message OP and ask if she was okay. i was so disturbed. i wish we had any indication that she and her baby are okay
That one freaked me out. I couldn't imagine being in that situation.
I came looking for this one. She never updated after her post, and I can only hope she and her child are off living their best lives away from the father and father-in-law.
I still think about her a lot. I hope she's ok.
The original post, if anyone wants to read it
The most downvoted comment on reddit, from r/StarWarsBattlefront
At the release of star wars battlefront II 2017, most things were unlocked by paying for loot boxes. The game has become a lot better since then, and is actually really good now, but it never fully recovered from its rocky start…
Legendary amount of downvotes. EA at its finest.
I'm happy to have clicked on the link and see I downvoted that comment 3 years ago. Fuck EA
I hope you, like I, felt a sense of pride and accomplishment at that downvote you gave EA.
F- them sideways.
It also got the Guinness world record for the most downvoted comment in history.
Drunk dude does his own ama. He started on but nobody came so he started asking himself questions then answering them. All the [deleted] users are him.

I had forgotten this one and I have tears from laughing again
There is a post about a woman who's daughter was allergic to coconut. The grandmother was watching her and put coconut oil in her hair. The daughter was found dead and swollen from the allergic reaction. It's. Fucking heartbreaking story.
Edit to add the link: https://rareddit.com/r/JUSTNOMIL/comments/7qmed5/you_can_come_over_again_when_you_bring_me_my
What's worse is the grandmother was warned repeatedly about it but she decided she didn't believe in allergies.
God, I hate those "don't believe in allergies" people, there are e.g. some who try to sneak allergens (e.g. peanuts for a person with deadly peanut allergy) into allergic people's food just to prove their point etc. It's just so despicable (and dangerous). Also, even if you don't believe in allergies, why is it so fucking hard to respect others' boundaries??
There was a guy in my class in school who was allergic to nuts. According to school rumours he ate a snickers on purpose because he wanted to see what the fuss was about and got airlifted to hospital.
Kids are fucking stupid. When I was in kindergarten my grandfather died. He was my favorite person. I told my teacher that I wanted to jump in front if a truck so I could visit him in heaven. I had to see a psychologist for a little while and they eventually came to the conclusion that I was just dumb and didn't know what death was. The one psychologist kind of scolded my mom saying to stop coddling me and let me know my grandfather isn't coming back and death is permanent or I might be stupid enough to actually run into traffic.
I remember this. The title was something like 'You can see me when you bring back my daughter'. Absolutely heartbreaking post. I can't even imagine.
There was that one about the kid asking how to dispose of several gallons of chloroform- someone gave him advice, post was deleted right after though I think
How the hell do you get several gallons of chloroform? Also, do you remember when it was posted? Maybe the way back machine can help
Cleaning out old biology lab rooms. They had some shit in there. I came across a full quart of chloroform during an inspection. Acid bottles were crystallized so bad that we couldn’t even see labels.
Opened the chloroform up, threw the bottle into the vent hood and let that crap evaporate.
It’s pretty easy to get rid of
Edit: it was a little more in-depth than just “opening up the bottle” and letting it evaporate. It was evaporated in small quantities over a couple weeks. Keep in mind, this was over a decade ago, and was the recommendation we received from Flinn and a local university
There was a self post by a guy who been posting to reddit for years, but had never received a single response or an upvote. He concluded that he was just really bad at reddit. It turned out that some setting on his account was preventing anyone from seeing his posts and comments.
This hit the front page and thousands of redditors went back through his history and responded to everything as well as upvoting him to the sky. The comments were unbelievable and ~~entirely~~ overwhelmingly positive. If anyone has the link lease let me know!
It used to be one of the top posts of all time until they fucked with the algorithm and posts regularly get many more upvotes. Here's the link: https://old.reddit.com/r/tifu/comments/351buo/tifu_by_posting_for_three_years_and_just_now/

This is one of the best stories on Reddit, and the responses to it are just as great. I just wish I knew what happened to those girls afterwards...
You guys remember that r/prorevenge story (I think?) about a guy hired to do a very specific and skilled restoration on a historic building, and this new contractor comes in and demands they stop working to get him a coffee? It was a great read, and that contractor got royally fucked by his own hubris. Anyone have a link?

Fuck me. That was a rollercoaster and then reading your spoiler really hit me hard, felt like I knew the man by the end of it, Mark and David seemed like really good blokes that you’d want a pint and a laugh with.
I know who you're talking about, it looks like the account has been deleted. The OP was injured in a car accident and eventually died, the final few posts were by his wife explaining that.
Wow, I remember reading the original post. Odd to feel hurt knowing he passed and I didn’t know him.

and his wife's version of the story
This one is extremely disturbing, but it was a post from a man looking for advice on leaving his wife. Not too long after, he posted an update that his wife murdered their children.
u/JasonInHell. The original post and account were deleted.
And if anyone should doubt that it was real (because a story like that certainly sounds like it could be a troll), he linked to [news stories](https://www.christianpost.com/news/mom-allegedly-kills-children-so-husband-couldnt-get-custody-after-divorce-171728/) that matched up with his original post. Just incredibly tragic.
For those wondering, the mother who killed the kids in cold blood is currently in prison serving out a sentence of 120 years. Sounds like it will be a life sentence.
>Originally Brandi Worley pleaded not guilty and had a trial scheduled. In January 2018, Brandi Worley pleaded guilty to murder. On March 19, 2018, Judge Harry Siamas of the Montgomery Circuit Court sentenced Brandi Worley to 65 years for murdering Charlee and 55 years for murdering Tyler, giving her a consecutive total of 120 years in prison. Jason Worley stated "All I care is to never see [Brandi Worley] again. Out of sight and out of mind."
She called 911 and said “I stabbed myself and killed my two kids”… she told her husband “now you can’t take the kids from me” after he went upstairs.. she confesses to the murders when a sherif shows up to her house after the 911 call..
And she pleads “NOT GUILTY!” WTF.
Edit: I understand you can plead to specific charges and there are tactics involved, but still. She didn’t seem like the person who was ashamed of it.
[Spousal Revenge Filicide](https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/abs/pii/S1359178916300556)
> “Spousal revenge” killers murder their child apparently out of a desire to cause harm to their ex-partner, the child’s other parent. Standard explanations of these killings fail to provide an adequate solution to what I call the problem of spousal revenge filicide. This is the problem of how a killer comes to take their rage at their former partner out on their own child and how that child can be dehumanized to the point of murder. Although the dehumanization of the victim is acknowledged to occur, why it occurs is not well understood. Here, I offer an hypothesis that the killer fails to represent their child as a moral subject with a mind of their own. This is due to a deficit in the killer’s capacity for person perception which is, by hypothesis, pathological. As such, the killer experiences the child as an object, rather than a person, which is of significant emotional value to the other parent.
That shit was on the news too. It wasn’t some troll.

A story of a guy who spent $16,000 on a mobile phone game that almost ended up with his wife leaving him. I don’t want to spoil too much of it and I recommend reading the whole thing for yourself. It’s a crazy story but an even better lesson of how easy it is to become addicted to gambling.

I think the guy documenting his spiraling into a full blown heroin addiction was one of the most disturbing and impressive things I read here. I forgot the name of the account unfortunately.
I found it. He did a bunch of AmAs. The last is four years ago. Hope he‘s doing well.
Oh god i forgot about this. That was a heartbreaking one for sure. Didn't it start with him using once for research or something like that?
He says in his final update that he downplayed his substance use in his original thread. He was in denial about his alcohol and weed dependence. He says that had his life been going better he never would have tried H at all. I think that is the real takeaway from all of this. If you need help, please get it. Don't self medicate, no matter how strong you think you are.
I think it started with him just trying out of curiosity or something.
And yes, it was heartbreaking to read.
There was this story about a girl that was kidnapped as a child. And she was saved by some random guy in a stairwell who absolutely kicked the kidnappers arse. She was saved just because one dude had the social awareness to notice that something was wrong. I need to read it again but cant seem to find it sadly.

Hey I'm the OP of the mentioned reddit post. Sorry I don't use reddit much so sorry if I say the wrong things or whatever. I recently have been getting a ton of messages and questions so I guess I'll answer them here if that's okay. When I posted the story of what happened to me around a week or two later someone claimed to know the "Cigarette Guy" a few days later it was confirmed to be him and we exchanged information and talked on the phone. I posted a few updates but I guess it broke the rules of the subrettit so it was deleted. Since then I didn't post much updates because I'm not sure what is or isnt against the rules and I'm not sure what people are curious to know about the situation.
Edit: I'm getting a lot of questions. Most of them I answered previously and some of them would be better for Cigarette Guy to explain himself. I talked to him earlier today and we came to the conclusion the easiest way would be for him to do a livestream of some sort where people could ask questions to him directly. Maybe he would start the stream later today, tomorrow, or some other time. Let me know suggestions as to what app or site he should use to stream or the best time for everyone. I appreciate everyone's interest in this situation.
How did the conversation go with Cigarette Guy? Was he happy to hear from you? Did he manage to stay out of jail?
The conversations went good. He's a very enthusiastic, funny and insightful person. Sometimes he says things that make me change my entire way of thinking. He has managed to stay out of jail. Although he was in jail when he was a lot younger.
Cigarette guy seems like an incredible anti-hero, with the "police don't like me" and my imagination filling in the blanks, but a hero nonetheless.
Man, I wish you both the best.
This kind of story creates a link that is like nothing else between you and Cigarette Guy. Nothing weird, just something very few people can truly understand. He probably saved your life, and that's something that is respected and honored since the birth of humanity and in every civilization. Live a great life !
Incredible story. And also thank god your dad picked up on the weirdness and got the story out of you, and then got you away from your mother. Hopefully the rest of childhood was much less... eventful.
Here's a link to the update they posted: [https://www.reddit.com/user/throwaway-exrac/comments/dogu5d/finding\_the\_man\_who\_saved\_my\_life\_as\_a\_child/?utm\_source=share&utm\_medium=web2x&context=3](https://www.reddit.com/user/throwaway-exrac/comments/dogu5d/finding_the_man_who_saved_my_life_as_a_child/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=web2x&context=3)
From what I could gather, yeah. Initially "Cigarette Guy" didn't trust them but then he did and he was excited to meet them I think.
I think this is what you are talking about..which is so strange because I just heard this story today on a YouTube channel.
Edit to add: The channel is urmaker. I originally started watching him for his 911 series, though beware it is disturbing. Once I ran out of those I checked out his other content and just watched the video containing this story yesterday morning.
Here is the link to the video https://youtu.be/fQp5t3hLEkc it is the first story in the bunch

Their arrival date was supposed to be yesterday.
Probably why Jeff Bezos is leaving.
Perfect top response: “Of all the things that didn’t happen, this didn’t happen the most.”
Ok guys did anything freaky happen yesterday!?
Nothing as far as I know in North America. Biz Markie died. Did they take him up?
Ya well after the way things have been going on Earth I'd change my plans too
Jack and Gina looking down at us from their X-ray walled UFOs thinking "what the fuck?" as the world burns.

Lol what the shit. Alien bro "hey can you like, call your dad please, we have a certain level of secrecy we have to uphold here ayyy"
I had a calendar reminder for this yesterday. I didn’t remember making it. I should probably plug in my carbon monoxide detector.
This one's always stuck with me; the stranger under the bed. Creeps the shit out of me thinking about it.
I would just like you to know that I was just reading this while home alone, in bed, the power went out all across town and everything was plunged into blackness. That is all.
[This](https://www.reddit.com/r/AskReddit/comments/oc7rc/have_you_ever_felt_a_deep_personal_connection_to/c3g4ot3/) one, where a user lived a happy life with a wife and children only for it to all be a coma dream.
This is one of the first stories I remember reading on reddit. I was searching near death experiences and found this. Thank you for reminding me.
oh my god that is terrifying. building a life from the ground up only for it to be ripped away
I've had dreams where I'm with my wife for weeks or months, doing all our normal things and it feels wonderful. Then I wake up and realize she's still dead. More than once. It's both amazing and soul crushing at the same time.
Sorry for your loss :(
I know it's not quite the same, but I have dreams like this about my exes (like from a decade ago) sometimes. It's always such a strange feeling too, because I wake up in love with them again - like the real feelings of our relationship came back, even though I usually don't even think about them anymore, except in passing. It takes a few hours to shake it off and go back to normal.
Our brains are pretty amazing.
The guy that talked a girl out of an abortion but then complains that he has to raise the kid alone after she told him that she plans on giving him full custody.
I always wonder what happened to the kid.
Edit: Thanks for the awards, I totally didn't expect this to get this many comments and upvotes.
Normally r/legaladvice is pretty strict about non qualified legal advice comments. Moral judgement and rubbernecking is usually left for r/bestoflegaladvice.
But oooh boy the amount of moral judgement in that main thread is delicious. OP was such a fucking asshole that even the mods were like "go to town on him boys, this douchebag deserves it."
Part of one reply:
>Dude, seriously. Your living in cloud cuckoo land.
I just saw [this one](https://www.reddit.com/r/TalesFromYourServer/comments/hsiisw/kicking_a_nazi_out_as_soon_as_they_walk_in/?utm_medium=android_app&utm_source=share) yesterday in a comment on another post. It explains why allowing one nazi in your bar will turn it into a nazi bar.
It was a little harrowing because I worked at a place where the manager was too chicken to kick out a nazi and it undermined the whole staff's trust.
If you're having a crap day, go here and just start scrolling.
Lmao, thanks for linking this, I've been laughing a solid 10 mins straight.
>Another time after work I got into the passenger seat of my car and waited a good 2 minutes to be driven home before realising I was alone
One time I woke up in the middle of the night thinking "oh shit, I forgot to drink the dish soap". Waddle waddle to the kitchen, "wait.. what"
We have Tide pods now.
Once in college I made the 25 minute bus ride home and the moment I stepped off, I realized I had driven to school that day.
Every now and then something will remind me of this and I’ll read it again. Truly crazy story
That’s crazy. I wonder what happened to the son.
What are the options for parents in these situations? Survive until they are 18 and then kick them out?
Yes. Or hope they can get in enough legal trouble to go to jail. Some group homes exist for those with lots of mental health issues, but at his age, I’m not sure there are any.
Jesus, that's nuts.
I forget what its called, but there is a thread where a guy makes an account just to roast the people on r/grilledcheese and how most of the things that they post are in fact melts. He then tells his life story about how he's been eating grilled cheeses 40+ years and that the thread was in fact a disgrace
Hey I was 21 at the time & I'm 27 now. I'm old but not that old!
Well my dude it seems like you succeeded. I checked /r/grilledcheese and for at least the first 2 pages there are no melts in sight.
I only wanted to bring balance to the force
Not the same one, but another great post about grilled cheese: https://www.reddit.com/r/AskReddit/comments/itkz9f/what_is_the_worst_way_a_restaurant_had_screwed_up/g5g1qha/
This woman goes to order a grilled cheese at a hospital cafeteria and the cook has no idea what she's talking about. Tries making it on a hamburger bun.
Damn this reminds me of when I first came to the US. British but I don't think my accent is *that* strong. Went bowling with the future inlaws and was hungry, went to get some food. Menu has a burger at the top so when the lady gets to me and asks what I want, I respond like any human with 'I'd like a burger please.'
She looked at me in confusion. 'A what?'
I look at the menu, sure enough first item is a burger. Look back. 'I'd like a burger.'
With a look of supreme boredom and confidence she responds 'oh, we don't do those.'
I look at the menu. Look back at her. Menu. Her. 'A hamburger? First thing on the menu?'
'Oh sure.' Goes to make it.
I have absolutely no idea what she thought I said, and have no idea how someone can have the utmost confidence to apparently mishear me twice, and decide I was clearly asking for something that did not exist.
Edit: I'm enjoying all of these replies, and the attempts to transcribe British accents is amusing and pretty on point. This was in the Midwest, as some have guessed, and I have found that sometimes I genuinely have to put on a cowboy accent to be understood.
Reading this thread makes me realize there hasn't been a new legendary Reddit post in quite a while
I’m surprised the 12 foot party sub guy hasn’t shown up, that one wasn’t too long ago I think
Edit: Someone [linked](https://www.reddit.com/r/AmItheAsshole/comments/ca7bdz/aita_because_i_ate_more_than_my_share_of_a_6_foot/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=ios_app&utm_name=iossmf) it below! It was actually 6 feet but still

They only noticed her because she had brightly dyed red hair. Her friend, whom she had gone hiking with, was later found dead
Today you, Tomorrow me! The story of a guy being helped on the side of the road by a lovely Mexican family who would take nothing return!
I was going to post this
Out of all the fucked up shit on Reddit
This is the most wholesome shit I’ve ever read
Someone made a post about how they purposely like to block speeding cars and drive slow to make them mad, and a tree aborist gave probably one of the best responses I've ever read and has stuck with me.
Read this for the first time just the other day, it feels like one of those stories you never forget.
Holy shit that is terrifying. My husband does tree removals for a living and is getting his arborist certification. I have no idea what I would do if this happened to him or his crew. Holy shit.
Lumberjack is one of the deadlier professions out there. The best thing anyone can ever do for safety is to avoid complacency. Always assume that today is as deadly as the first time you picked up your chainsaw.

This is the kind of gold I was hoping for!
You know you have been around Reddit too long when every single link is something you have read already
I mean, everything at the r/MuseumOfReddit will surely be of your interest, but if I have to think about one, the first that comes to mind is the story of the poop knife over at r/TIFU
Poop knife is a classic.
Okay there was a Relationship Advice post from a woman who thought her boyfriend was drugging her. She woke up with marks on her thighs and she was feeling increasingly erratic. The top comment was an exterminator explaining that bed bugs can cause paranoia and psychosis! And that the marks on her legs looked like bed bug bites. Terrifying.
Edit: Legal advice not relationship

The one on r/tifu where some guy found and watched vr porn of his wife's sister and got caught. He then posted about it and was giving consistent updates and it was looking good like his wife was about to forgive him... until she found the post, got on his Reddit account and edited the post to make it say it's her and left a long rant about how much of an idiot he is for posting it on Reddit. I can't find it but if anyone can please reply with the link.

I don’t remember the story, it was a lot of pictures about a tunnel under someone’s house and it was the first time I read the words “here’s a banana for scale.”
Who was the one guy who would go into random subs, and give a really sincere, in depth response, but it always ended with his dad beating him within an inch of his life. He always tricked ya and it ended with something along those lines. Was great material
EDIT: u/rogersimon10 Go read his posts they are just strange and wonderfully funny somehow hahaha so good
EDIT 2: many people have also mentioned u/shittymorph. Same idea but his end in mentioning how in 1998 undertaker threw mankind off a steel cage lololol. Excellent excellent material. Hahahaah he tricks em every time too
You left out the best part: his dad invariably beat him with *jumper cables*
Legendary, hilarious trolling by u/RogerSimon10
