What did the strange kid in your school do to make them so strange? [NSFW]

  1. Would consume their juice boxes by spraying the juice on his shirt, and sucking the juice out of his shirt, in High School.

  2. Wore historically accurate British Royal Navy uniforms around campus a few days a week. He was a really nice guy, and very knowledgeable about history; pretty eccentric though.

  3. She hissed like a cat, scratched other students, and called the teachers “master”.

  4. Told everyone his name was Soulreaper. He was the self-proclaimed “gangster emperor” and a vampire. He would run around with his forearm over his face (like he was shielding himself from the sun with a pretend cape,) hide in the shade and hiss at people as they walked by. Sometimes he would charge them when he hissed and chase them away. If they didn’t run, he would do his little cape thing and flee back to the shadows.

    1. He snorted bird shit off of a car in the high school parking lot for $5.

    2. He got caught jerking off in the woodshop closet.

  5. Chronic nose picker. Anytime, anywhere, no shame.

    Pretty much only talked about hunting.

    Apparently he also got caught getting his dick sucked by a calf. That’ll put a damper on your social life.

  6. He tried to kill a classmate with a screwdriver. He also stuck cinnamon tic tacs up his nose. I can still hear the screaming.

  7. She would always have conversations with herself during class (often while the teacher was speaking). One day she showed up and had shaved the front of her hair so that it looked like she had a horrible receding hairline. After a couple of weeks like that she took to wearing Halloween wigs. She’d sometimes talk about her pet flying squirrel and nobody believed she actually had one so she started trying to take him to school with her every so often and always get into trouble. During lunch she would sit by herself at a table, pick a person out and literally mimic their every move for the entire lunch period. Very bizarre.

  8. Give everyone weird nicknames. I was poultry lizard

  9. He had cat ears glued into his hair and sat on the ground like Golum holding pieces of bread up to his face and nibbling on it like a cat. He seemed really startled when I invited him to sit with us and spoke quietly. Didn’t see him in our area after that much.

  10. Girl at my high school drove a hearse. She was goth. Her brother was caught with a “death list” and was expelled.

  11. He spoke like an old timey fisherman. He also played the accordion and the harmonica. He said he lived on a boat but I think he just loved the idea of it. He grew long 1800’s style sideburns and wore a sailors cap to school. He also spoke in a weird olde english type of way.

    Edit: to the people who guessed his name is Max, either we went to the same school or you guys are magicians

    Edit 2: this kid didnt get bullied at all because he was so weird. Everybody loved him but in all seriousness he must have been fucked up because he was like a pre-Titanic fisherman

  12. While on a school sports trip, we stopped at a Denny’s for lunch. He sat at a table by himself and shouted at the waitress to ‘get me another Coke, bitch’ like three times.

    He ate his burger so fast that it got stuck in his throat (I think). No biggie, he just pushed it down his throat with his fork, to the horror of the other nearby diners.

    That’s just one example.

  13. This one kid was really into the whole furry culture. He wore a dog collar and constantly drew pictures of anthropomorphic animals with huge breasts. He was also one of those people who pathologically lie.

    If you’re a furry, I mean that’s great and all but being out and proud about it just got him eaten alive in high school.

  14. Straight up whip it out and start jacking it in class.

If you screamed at the top of your lungs right now, what would some of the consequences be?

  1. I would scare the shit out of the man crapping in the stall next to mine.

  2. my mum would run upstairs with a knife ready to kil whoever was trying to rape/hurt/kill me. My cat would come trailing up behind her wondering if there was any food to eat in here.

  3. I’d scare my wife and kids, and then I’d have to explain myself.

  4. A mob would form, of angry students and security officers. Don’t scream in the silent zone of a library the week before midterms.

  5. You’d finally turn around.

  6. My work mate would say. “What the fuck was that about mate?!”

  7. Two Golden Retirevers would wake up and glare at me with their WTF look.

  8. My sister would throw something at me for waking her baby.

  9. My kids would freak out…then probably join me.

  10. I’m standing in the foyer of my college, and no one is really around. I guess that campus security would hear my echoing scream and come investigate.

    Edit: come to think of it, the crazy art professor might come find me and join in.

  11. My boss would think I’d nailed my hand to the wall, either that or just yell at me for being a stupid apprentice

  12. No one would hear me because I live by myself after that bitch Denise left me why did you have to go please come back

  13. Someone would probably tell me to shut the fuck up because I’m on a train.
    Or I’d get stabbed because that’s the kind of train line I’m on

You have $500 to survive for a year without going broke (you must have at least $0.01 left). If you succeed, you get $10,000,000. How do you do it?

  1. 500 USD is the same as 32000 Indian Rupees roughly. Which is almost 2700 Rupees a month. I currently live with my parents and spend about 2000 Rupees a month. I don’t even need to think of a new way. I’ve already won with the 500 USD.

  2. Simple. I tell my friends the deal, offer to split it with them, and live with them for the year.

  3. ok, so a 12 pack of Ramen noodles is 2.22 at walmart, a storage unit in my area is 19.99 a month. If I eat 2 packs of Ramen a day and sleep in the storage unit on a cot, with 4 blankets also bought at Walmart cause it gets cold in NY and If I didn’t spend any other money for the year I would have 32.54 left at the end of the year.

  4. I will barter with people. You give me two potatoes, I’ll weave you a nice basket. Give me a piece of steak, I will weave you an even nicer basket.

  5. Step 1. Find a farm that will let you work on it in exchange for food and board.

    Step 2. Work on that farm for one year.

    Step 3. Profit..

  6. 360 packets of 60p ramen.

    The rest goes on sugar free gummy bears to assist bowel movement.

  7. Blanket: $9.88

    FABERWARE Stove Top: $29.92

    Pots and Pans: $19.88

    20 lb Bag of Rice x 10: $89.80

    10 lb Bag of Potatoes x 10: $17.70

    4 lb Bag of Oranges x 5: $19.90

    Tent: $20.97

    Backpack: $29.97

    I would spend $238.12 before taxes (or about $260.74 after taxes). I would get a library card, spend my days there, use the water fountain there to fill up my pots and pans to cook my rice and potatoes. I’d have a 1/4 lb potato every day and about half a pound of rice every day. I’d have one orange a week. If need be, I’ll get more supplies with my remaining money. I’ll camp out in a tent in our local woods.

    EDIT: I wouldn’t buy all the potatoes and oranges at once, I’d buy them over time. And maybe I’ll get another blanket, or get beans as well. I still have plenty of money.

    EDIT 2: After reading a lot of responses, I decided to edit it a little:

    Blanket x 2: $19.76

    FABERWARE Stove Top: $29.92

    Pots and Pans: $19.88

    20 lb Bag of Rice x 15: $134.70

    Tent: $20.97

    Backpack: $29.97

    Beans x 4: $31.92

    Lard x 2: $11.76

    Vitamin C: $9.00

    Gym Membership: $120

    This comes out to $427.88 (or $468.53 after taxes).

    EDIT: Now I feel bad that someone wasted 1/100th of their year supply to give me access to /r/lounge.

  8. Surprised nobody has said steal shit. I would just steal shit.

  9. Super easy since I live in Venezuela. Get ready because its MATH TIME.

    Minimum Wage in Venezuela = 4500 BsF

    USD to BsF rate = 1$ = 250 BsF

    That’s fucking right motherfucker, 500$ equals to 27 minimum wages. That means I can live with DOUBLE the minimum wage PER MONTH? And Still have some extra money? Pfffff easy as fuck.

  10. Well, if I have to feed myself for a year and can’t get help from anyone, go to prison, earn a living, etc. that would give me about $1.50 a day for food.

    That isn’t too terrible. A 50 lb bag of rice is under $20. Cook it over an open fire and camp for a year.

    If push comes to shove, you can buy bags of sugar and tubs of butter and just eat that straight to get extra calories.

  11. I would buy milk, flour, vitamins, and boil them down into little energy balls to sustain me. Boom, only used $60.

  12. Spend most of it on weed to sell and continue living with my parents

  13. Id offer my folks $1 million to let me move in with them and feed me for a year.

  14. Rob someone, get locked up for a bit, repeat, get out a millionaire. No brainer.

  15. Live in a 3rd world country such as Sierra Leone where the average income is on $340 a year. If they can survive there, I will find a way to survive as well.

  6. >When your time comes to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song, and die like a hero going home.

Which profession has the potential to create the scariest killer?

  1. Long distance truck drivers. They are disproportionately over-represented as serial killers. Because they commit their crimes in multiple jurisdictions, it’s harder to connect the murders, and harder to trace them to the killer. There are also sex workers who frequent truck stops, who provide an easy target. Scary stuff.

  2. Sound strange but nurses, I’ve read about several of them that would overdose patients and kill them, they are also the least likely suspect.

  3. I do Air Traffic Control, and people always talk about the redundancies and safety of flight for all passengers…. But I’ve experienced a completely different story. Someone who works in my profession could literally point 20 B737s right at each other and the pilots wouldn’t have any idea. You would just tell them that it was a vector around weather. Now, when some planes get close there will be a thing called a TCAS that will alert the pilot of traffic, but if there are 20 aircraft all pointed at the exact same spot, you could guarantee many of them would hit or maybe stall to try and avoid another aircraft. I belive the largest amount of deaths caused by an Air Traffic Controller is somewhere around 600 deaths and that person was sane. If you pointed that many planes to one point in the sky, you would have a complete disaster. It feels very weird for me to even talk about this.

    Edit: Just so everyone understands, this is something that is highly improbable, but possible, maybe on a much smaller scale. I’ve seen so many close calls in my seven year career and none have been reported on by the news. I fortunately have never been one of the controllers to lose situational awareness and let something like this happen. I work with military aircraft and commercial flights every day. We also have civilian aircraft who are VFR, meaning they just avoid other planes visually. I also want it to be known that I am working in South Korea and it’s so much more complex here than it was stateside, mainly because of the language barrier. I get Chinese and Korean pilots that can barely speak English (the international air traffic language) and it can be pretty scary. Also Korean fighter jets are possibly the most dangerous pilots I have ever seen. They will sometimes just do whatever they want and you have to try and separate commercial airliners from their random routes that they decide to take. These pilots are supposed to listen to us, but rarely do. It’s also worth noting that in the southern United States there are tons of training military pilots who have been known to do the same thing. We train people from the Middle East, who also know very little English and can sometimes do some pretty crazy things. Anyway, safe flying! There are actually great controllers in the sky making sure that nothing terrible happens.

  4. Pig farmer. Never trust a man who keeps a pig farm.

  5. Cab drivers have made my list. My SO and I stayed in KC, MO for a weekend last summer and the front desk manager recommended a new cab company with “ultra-competitive rates”. Naively, I called the number and scheduled a cab to drive us to a concert as well as pick us up when it was done. When they arrived that evening, we quickly realized it was just a dude with a “TAXI” sticker on his mid-90’s model mini-van. We should’ve just hired another service then and there, but we were in a rush and figured it wouldn’t be a big deal. On the way, this guy starts asking if we have GPS tracking on our phones- in case he gets lost- and if there’s anyone else in our group who’d be waiting for us. About three quarters of the way there, he literally pulls out a flask and asks if we “want a swig”. After we both declined, he didn’t speak to us the rest of the ride. Needless to say, we ended up hiring a different service on the way back to the hotel, but it made me realize how bad things could go if you let your guard down at the wrong time and for the wrong people.

  6. Definitely a hitman

  7. Pizza Deliverers….we open our doors to them without thinking twice.

    Edit: Apparently reddit is full of a bunch of detectives.

  8. A forensic investigator of some sort. Basically like Dexter. They know exactly how not to get caught.

  9. Butcher, you learn to cut/get rid of leftovers and you can choose the cannibal option

  10. Dentists. As if they aren’t scary enough as it is.

  11. Psychologist/psychiatrist. If Silence of the Lambs, Batman and Criminal Minds have taught me anything, it’s that you especially don’t want to be killed by somebody with that kind of knowledge.

    *fixed

  12. Failed art student.

  13. Shit dude lawn care for real. We are constantly carrying tarps full of leaves and stuff in to a big box truck. It wouldn’t be hard at all to get rid of a body that was prepared for it. Tons of power tools and other really sharp utensils laying around too. Plus we lay a lot of sod, so there is a good burial spot. There could be bodies all over the city under freshly laid sod. BUM BUM!

  14. Kindergarten teacher

  15. Lunch lady.
    Dispose of the evidence, and keep everybody fed…

[Serious] Redditors who have been on a gameshow or any contest on TV, what were some behind the scenes “rules” that they tell you before they send you out before the cameras?

  1. Cash Cab – it is not completely random. They stopped me on the street and asked if I wanted to be on a show about the city. Me a some friends would go to a location and talked about current events. They set up a phone interview to test subject knowledge ( really to gauge question knowledge ). I was told to arrive at a location to film with a friend. When I got there they said a band was playing on a patio nearby affecting their sound levels. They hailed us a cab and said it would take us to the new location. Boom!!! – lights and cameras as soon as we got in.

  2. I tried out for Jeopardy once. They said they deliberately make the qualifying questions much harder than what you see on the show because 1) they want to find people who are actually smart and not just lucky, and 2) people get kinda stupid when you put a TV camera on them.

  3. I know on The Price is Right men were instructed not to hug Bob Barker, women were encouraged to.
