People Share The Craziest Times They've Seen Someone Overshare TMI On Social Media

Sigh...THEY'RE posting again...and as usual you know way more about them than you truly ever wanted to. You're already picturing someone, aren't you? Unfortunately, they're everywhere, and they must be stopped.

u/Feixuen asked:

What's the worst case of over-sharing you've experienced on social media?

Here were some cringey examples.



Two active duty soldiers who are married to each other, with completely open facebook pages start airing their drama about cheating on each other. Each admitting that they cheated on each other, how they are going f*ck each over in the divorce.

Their CO was on their facebook page, so was the garrison commander.

Both got UCMJ action for adultery.

But wait, it gets better. They were ordered to cease talking about the proceedings on social media.

What do they both do? They go to social media, continue to brag about cheating on each other AND put their commander, garrison commander, and respective JAG lawyers on BLAST.

They are both no longer in the Army, and yes they are divorced. It was truly epic, and they kept b*tching about their punishment, and everything. They basically both started digging a hole and didn't f*cking stop until they got to hell. They then b*tched about how f*cked they are.


A Saga

My half-sister. Every trashy detail of every trashy moment of her trashy life ends up on FB. Or it did before she blocked me for calling her on her bullshit. The final straw for me and my brother was when she posted "Well, my mom wouldn't send me money, so I'm homeless and freezing to death (it was September in North Carolina), I slept with some dude for money and now I'm pregnant." My step mother refused to send her money for drugs, she was homeless for stealing from her former roommates for drug money. She had also faked several pregnancies for drug money and sympathy. I can't say I'm sorry in the least that she blocked me before I could block her.


Defined By A Partner

Someone I used to work with posts a picture of her and her boyfriend every day on instagram with some lovey dovey caption at the bottom, and a count of how many days they've been together. Every month they celebrate their "anniversary".

When they broke up, she deleted every photo with both of them in it, leaving about only 3 photos left on her account.

She got a new boyfriend about a month later, and now she does the same thing with this new guy, and I swear to god I think she's been reusing some of the old captions she made of the old bf.


Unexpected Endings

Some guy I worked with constantly posted about his and his wife's fights. Every little detail of what was said, and what happened after. I think we he wanted us to sympathize with him but he came off as an *ss in most of the posts. Before I friended him on facebook he seemed pretty chill. But after reading those posts (which on some days came once an hour), I was worried that we'd get news that he murdered her and I started to avoid him at work.

After I moved on to another job I unfriended him. But a few years later, out of morbid curiosity I went to check his profile and they were still married and had two more kids.


The Worst Kind Of People


I was in the airport on my way home from another continent when I was scrolling through Facebook and read my aunt's post (not a message, but a Facebook status) about how my grandpa (who I was going home to stay with for a couple months) died that morning. Called my mom, who had apparently asked all family members to wait 24h before posting anything on social media so that I could have been told in person. My whole family was livid at this aunt for a while.

3 years later, my uncle (a brother to my mom and this aunt) died unexpectedly in the middle of the night. His adult daughter happened to be traveling to their house that day from her out-of-town home, so her mom asked all family to refrain from posting anything on social media until the daughter arrived so that she could tell her in person (and also prevent her from driving while distraught). The aforementioned aunt decided to ignore this request again, and my poor cousin read about her dad's death in a Facebook post when she stopped for breakfast.


Just An Entire Mess

I will never forget this post.

Old restaurant coworker, followed him because all of his life drama would go down on Facebook. People posting to his wall about how he stole a child's bike and ruined her birthday, his mom calling him out for drug relapses and stealing from her. All on facebook!

When he broke up with another old coworker, he took to facebook. He wrote a wall of text calling her every name in the book, talking about how he was going to miss her daughter, then finished with something close to this: "Good luck finding another guy willing to put up with your fish market smelling lady business."


A Most Unusual Color

A Facebook friend of mine posted that she was worried because her 15 year old sons right hand had begun turning a strange brown/orange color. There were pictures. She'd made a doctors appointment. She then explained it was because he was using his sister's tanning lotion. Only she didn't seem to realize the reason only his right hand was tan and not the rest of his body! So, she let all of Facebook know her son jacked off using tanning lotion.


Non Validation Life

When my son was first diagnosed with stage 4 Hodgkins lymphoma I was texting with my mom while we were in the ER. My son asked that she not spread the news. So of course, the next day she sent out a family-wide email detailing everything, plus her own theories and conclusions. I got a call from my daughter who was stationed in Japan and was frantic. This was the first I had heard about the email because she didn't include me (because I was at ground zero, as it were). So I called my mom up and basically tore her a new one. Her reply was that it was just to family, but I told her that she wasn't supposed to tell ANYONE. She even told my 96-year-old grandmother, which could have killed her (but didn't). She later told me that my dad chewed her out too. So now I don't tell her anything unless it's past any crucial time. I can understand her wanting to get the word out for prayers and thoughts, but I don't live on the outside of my skin, looking for validation from social media.

Btw, my son is doing just fine, in remission for 2 1/2 years now.


A Serious Oversight

This was obviously a mistake but a few months ago I saw a guy on Linkedin who was sharing practically his entire employment and education history. He was attaching letters of recommendation and emails praising his work from supervisors. He added a couple of documents for his education and one of them was his school transcript. This transcript had his full name and social security number at the top.


Unfollowing Can Be Healthy


During his last weeks my grandfather was really unwell. He was a proud man at least with regards to his appearance and didn't like people seeing him so poorly.

The day he died my cousin put a photograph on Facebook of her son hugging him. Titled it 'pop's last hug'.

It's an uncomfortable picture. The boy has an expression that reads "I have been told to smile for the camera so here's a grimace" and my grandfather just isn't there in it at all.

I was pissed. He'd have hated to have that picture tor for everyone to see.

Even taking the picture was tasteless but sure whatever, but uploading it was disgusting. I silenced her recently after more uncomfortable oversharing. It isn't healthful for me to see her nonsense.


Chlamydia And Cousins

My cousin, asking her Facebook followers what she's supposed to tell the health department when she receives calls asking for the contact information of all the partners she's recently had sex with since she was diagnosed with chlamydia. In the comments, she went on to explain that she didn't even know some of the names of these men, let alone their phone numbers. The entire thing was her ranting about how annoying it was, along with asking for advice on what to tell the health department.

My first thought was damn girl, get your life together. My second thought was damn girl, ever heard of Google?!


Countdown To A Meltdown

A friend from the past completely melted down over a couple month period after visiting his family across country and deciding that his mother, who was battling cancer, wasn't being treated right by the rest of the family. He completely went at it with everyone and no topic or accusation was off limits.

And he was clearly in the wrong, completely off his rocker, and his family were just a bunch of regular people. One by one he called people out and publicly tried shaming them by spilling all sorts of past events etc. And one by one these people would eventually tell him off and suggest he get help and then block his ass. And he would just go harder on the next person. It became so f*cking ugly that myself and others just unfriended the guy because we couldn't watch it anymore. I've never seen anything like it before and doubt I will again. Complete sh*tshow.


This Is Why We Communicate


This person asked me to hook them up with my friend. I did, and the next day they proceeded to post on social media in detail everything they didn't like about having sex with them.

Like, it caused a lot of drama, some people saying it was their right to post it, others saying it was gross and over sharing. My friend felt totally humiliated and had no idea anything went wrong, because there was no communication. Meanwhile I felt horrible and responsible, and I was just begging them to take it down. Resulted in the person deleting their account.

Ive just, never seen anything like that in my life.


Jerkface McGhee

Friend of mine: his mother in law passed away. Grieving father in law goes into depression and stops paying rent, gets evicted, starts getting passed around the kids/grandkids.

My buddy doesn't like it when it's his turn, after 3 days goes on a rant "hey daughter A! Why am I stuck with YOUR father! You can't stand him either? Someone has to come pick him up in 24 hours before I toss him on the street! Daughter B, do you know he walks around the neighborhood and gets lost? I had to find him three times already! Daughter C Come get your free loader!!!!!"

Yeah, it's called dementia -.-


Ah, Racist Relatives

A VERY ANGRY and *also OCCASIONALLY RACIST older relative WHO types LIKE THIS,,,and doesn't NO HOW TO SPEL OR PUNCTUATE2 (and who I couldn't block, because it would offend decent family I do like) posted a very long rant after a 3-month absence about "Facebook jail" and "f*ck the police".

Turns out, she had made very time and place specific violent threats about harming Michelle Obama (who she has also called a man, a monkey, and a transvestite prostitute, to give you a sense of how classy she is) because the former First Lady had the AUDACITY to visit a city of several million in the state that said relative lives in. That she lives 4 hours away from. And never visits. And b*tches regularly about. The Secret Service followed up, and Facebook suspended but did not delete her account.

Included with the rant were several pictures of her topless 75 year-old self wearing a confederate flag skirt, flipping off the camera while literally sh*tting on a picture of the Obama family.

I'm glad she did it, because Facebook then deleted her account.


To Cause A Downfall

To preface, my sister has always been self-obsessed, maladjusted, "woe is me, nobody understands me", moody, straight up batsh*t. Hella dramatic and no amount of attention anyone gives her will ever be enough for her.

She just recently went through a terrible breakup (he cheated on her and is a sociopath POS, but as always, 2 sides to every story and she's not blameless) and made a new Instagram account and posts the most painful, cringey poetry as a way to express her feelings towards men. It's like a middle schooler's diary...she's 30.

One of the worst,

"Don't promise to not hurt me Every guy that has promised they wouldn't hurt me hurt me. So don't promise you won't. And eventually when you do I won't have to call you out for breaking your promise to not hurt me...

This is how girls are ruined"

Always uses the hashtag #poetrybyme. Like, girl, I wouldn't be claiming that poem if I were you. My other sister and I get great laughs out of the terrible writing and my dad can't even talk about how absurd she is on social media. Hence why I rarely ever post on any platform now.


Who are your social media oversharers?

Have you ever found yourself in an argument so stupid and/or pointless that you were sure you were being punked? Like you keep looking away from the other person to check your surroundings for places Ashton Kutcher and a camera crew could come popping out of?

You're not the only one.

u/Anti-hollowkid asked: What is the dumbest argument you've ever been in?

Brace yourselves, folks. Some of these arguments are breathtakingly bonkers. The sheer number of people who are willing to argue with someone over provable facts and what that other person likes or doesn't like is just ... stunning. It's stunning, you guys. Just not in a good way.

I Know What I Like


My wife and I once argued over whether or not I liked mustard on my hot dog. I was for me liking mustard, she was against me liking mustard.

The argument lasted way longer that you could ever imagine it would.

A Stair Step

My brother and I argued if our staircase had 13 or 14 steps, based on an argument about if the floor of the second floor counts as a stair-step or not. We still have no solution.

- RazerWolf04

My dad is a stairbuilder and I spent many summers working at his warehouse, so I can clear this up. 14.

My husband and I have this thing where we only say "I love you" on Saturdays. Every other day it's "I love you, but only on Saturdays." I don't know how it started, but it's been going for 11 years now.

We're both shiftworkers, so sometimes we have to stop and think what day it actually is. We had an argument recently over whether it was Saturday or not. I said it was Saturday, he said it was Friday. It was Monday.

- FormalMango


I remember when I was about 13 my parents had an hour-long shouting match that ended with them almost getting divorced. The issue? Whether or not the nation of Iraq has a coastline.

My mother arguing that Iraq had a coastline, while my stepdad argued that it did not. This was back in 2004, and they are still quite happily married to this day. That incident is something they look back on and laugh about, and both of them admit it was really a pretty stupid thing to argue over.

With an ex:

"I owe you $80 for the bills of ours that you pay, and you owe me $40 for the bills of ours that I paid. Here's $40 in cash; we're even."

She did not understand this.

I literally had to go get another $40 out of the ATM, and hand the $80 to her. Then I had her hand me the $40 she owed me.

"Now how much do you have in your hand?"

She still didn't understand.

She somehow has a college degree.

Mini Wheats

When we were kids my brother and I got in a physical fight because he said I like mini wheats and I insisted I didn't. His argument was that I always sang the mini wheats song and I was deeply offended that he wasn't aware that it was just stuck in my head but I hated the cereal. I actually did like the cereal I'm not sure why I was arguing with him about it but I remember how genuinely angry I was.

- shicole3



I'll tell you about the only legal trouble I've ever been in, the fight that got me arrested. It started over whether we should return a box of crayons or not, and to this day I don't have any idea how it escalated to the point of the cops being called, but they were and I was the one taken in.

That's Unfair

My boyfriend insisted that when two people are in an argument and one makes a point so reasonable and logical the other one can't disagree with it - it's unfair. I tried, logically and reasonably, to explain several times why that is just winning the argument, proving your point thoroughly and is completely fair.

His answer was that I was being unfair.

- ShyAcorn

Pure Masochism

How the ch in masochism is pronounced. My friend caught me saying "masoKism" while he would say "masoSYism."

To be fair, he grew up speaking French, in which the ch in masochism is pronounced in "his" way. But he insisted that I was the wrong one here and that was just infuriating.

Emailing NASA

A woman was adamant that looking at the big solar eclipse on the television was unsafe unless you were wearing glasses. She wouldn't believe us and insisted on emailing NASA to check.

A Non-Standard Ruler? 

I worked for a company that made signs. We had a customer ask for signs that were 7mm wide that were to go on a door. Our sign makers figured the order meant inches because 7mm is pretty small, so made them 7 inches. I got a phone call from the customer who went mad at me for making them the wrong size. So I put a reorder through for 7 mm.

Argued with the sign makers over it but they eventually agreed to do it after I shown them the order in writing. I even had the customer put her complaint in writing, reiterating the size they wanted.

7mm signs went out and a day later I get the customer on the phone literally screaming at me.

Cue the dumb argument - we ended up having an argument over how big a millimetre is, and obviously everyone in the office were laughing, but this customer just wouldn't accept it and said we must be using a non-standard ruler to measure.

Ended up being escalating to the sales department manager who refused to issue a refund. We still don't know what they actually meant.

This Unusual Vegan Argument

Was in a pub with a few friends, and some random Dude dropped an ear, and somehow figured I'm vegan. Well, people like him are the reason I usually avoid mentioning it. He came up to me and insisted on starting a discussion about veganism. He claimed that by the end of it, I would be eating meat again.

He listed some stupid arguments, I told him I was not convinced and then tried to keep on drinking beer with my friends. He followed me, and wanted me to "try to convert him to a vegan." I stupidly listed some of my reasons thinking it would make him go away. He told me he still was not convinced, so I was like whatever. Again, I really just wanted to drink beer with my friends.

That dude followed me all night and expected me to try make him vegan. Doesn't matter what I said, and all the reasons that for me are obviously good enough to be vegan. He'd be just like "No, that doesn't convince me, therefore your argument and how you life is stupid."

Didn't matter how often I told him that I honestly don't care; 5 minutes later he would come up to me again "I'm still not vegan, so veganism is stupid, all your arguments were stupid, now give me a good reason to become vegan!" At one point, I was literally yelling at him that I don't give a single flying f about what he eats and why, that it's in no way my responsibility to "turn somebody vegan" and in no way his business what I eat.

Honestly, for that dude, I would have bought a whole ham, just to shove it up his stupid annoying face.

Monty Python

In college my roommate and I argued about a line in Monty Python & the Holy Grail. The scene with the Black Knight where the line "Alright, we'll call it a draw" is uttered. We argued about who said that line, whether it was King Arthur or the Black Knight.

It went on for hours longer than it should have because I was stubborn and refused to admit I was wrong.

Albert or Arnold

Below Sea Level

I live on an island and when you go upland and you look out the sea looks like it's higher than or on the same level as the land. It's just a weird perspective thing because of the horizon. One day some kid says that it's because the island is under sea level.

I'm like wtf bro all of us would be with the fishes. He argues that no that's not true and if I just go upland I'll see. We then spend a good 5 minutes of my time arguing about it until I decided to leave this kid in his stupidity. He even said we shouldn't believe everything adults tell us and sometimes we need to think for ourselves.

This kid was older than me and was going to a good school. Lost my respect for him ever since then.

Someone tried to fight with me over how to spell my name.

Now, my name is in a lot of languages with slightly different spellings. I would have accepted any of those spellings, but this one was just... Not even close. It didn't make any logical sense.

An analogous example is if my name was Thomas and someone was insisting it was spelled Tomash. And not just the name Thomas in general, but that me specifically, on my birth certificate, was named Tomash. I know how to spell my own name.

I swear to god, it went on for like an hour.

Whales Are Mammals

I was in an online chat room one day, and we were talking about whales. I commented on how whales are mammals and the next thing you know, someone was arguing with me and trying to convince me that a whale was a fish.

No Balloons For Grandma

My cousin and I argued over a balloon going to Heaven. We were at his big sisters prom send off and he let a balloon go and it went high into the sky.

He then said this balloon will go up past space and go to Heaven and reach grandma (God rest her soul). And I was like no it's not and it's probably not even gonna reach space. Releasing balloons is terrible for the environment and kills/harms so much wildlife.

He got really mad and defensive and started telling me to google it and do my research and I'm like I don't have to google it you idiot. He was mad at me for a good week.

Spontaneous Dolphin Existence


How dolphins reproduced. It took me a few solid minutes of explaining to her that dolphins have reproductive organs and that they did not just pop into existence. The argument began with her saying she wanted to work with sea creatures.

Personally, I hope she was messing with me cause I lost a little faith in humanity that day.

Andre 2000?


I'm late, but I saw this question and instantly remembered that I was booted from a Facebook group because I called someone out on a lie that was not only bull, but extremely pointless. She was friends with the moderator and they made the case that my argument over such a little lie was more of a problem than the lie itself (though they didn't refer to it as a lie.)

The woman said that she used to babysit for Andre 3000 and that his name was Andre 2000 - but he changed it after the year 2000 had passed. This was so easily disproven it was ridiculous. Their debut album came out in 1994 and he was already going by Andre 3000 at that time.

The argument wasn't a huge long drawn out thing, but the fact that either of us were on Facebook at separate times meant that the responses were over a long period of time so this argument lasted a few days.

It was stupid.

Stars Like Our Sun

I was arguing with my grandpa about stars he didn't believe that there are other stars like our sun. Basically he thought there is only the sun, the moon and the earth.


Richard Nixon

I have a degree in history. I mostly focused on nationalism. Wrote a 50 page paper on it and Richard Nixon with around 50 100 sources. Looked at micro film for hours on end. Part of the paper focused on how Nixon being chair of the house committee of Unamerican Activities was used as a powerful weapon to use against political enemies. It also inspired Joe McCarthy. Have had people tell me I was wrong and Nixon was never elected to a position besides the president and Joe McCarthy came before Nixon. I stopped trying to talk history to people.

I also know quite a bit about the history of the Balkans its amazing how many Serbs refuse to believe Tito did anything wrong.

Wrote 100 page paper on nationalism in Israel. Its frustrating to talk about because for some reason a lot of people think Palestinian firing rockets randomly into Israel is ok but if Israel retaliates the people get up in arms over a targeted air strike that kills 3 people.


Balloon to Heaven

My cousin and I argued over a balloon going to Heaven. We were at his big sisters prom send off and he let a balloon go and it went high into the sky. He then said this balloon will go up past space and go to Heaven and reach grandma (God rest her soul). And I was like no it's not and it's probably not even gonna reach space.

And he got really mad and defensive and started telling me to google it and do my research and I'm like I don't have to google it you idiot. He was mad at me for a good week.


Binder Clips

I got into an argument with a co-worker over how we were attaching two pages of a letter together: small binder clips or paper clips.

He felt that paper clips would leave a "dent" in the paper when removed, but binder clips won't. He refused to staple them together. I felt that binder clips would also leave a "dent", so we might as well just use the paper clips.

It ended with him saying: "Do what you want [me], I don't care!" and storming off.



Once got accused of faking being Jewish. Why? I have no clue. We argued over the course of a month, any time I'd bring it up and she heard about it, she'd begin going after me for "faking it".

My mother's side is ethnically Jewish. Grandparents were practicing.




3 friends and I once got into an argument about how to pronounce Nutella. It lasted for about 3-4 months. It was hilarious how serious we took it, it'd get heated but never for real serious.

I think someone even called the company that made it to check, or that may have been for the Cheetos company. We were really bored in high school.


Lingerie Boxes

Late to the party, but there it is.

I'm a manager at a small store. We're only 4 working there, so my team and I grew very close and we joke around a lot. Once during a slow shift, my employee and I had an argument because we were looking at the lingerie boxes, and I thought that two specific boxes had the same woman on it, but she was 100% positive they weren't the same person.

Looking back, I don't know why it was such a big deal to us at the time, but we even called another employee who lives across the street to come and tell us what the heck was up with that. Turns out I was right, and she was pretty salty about it. It was a great night.


Wicked Witch of the West

I almost got into an argument with an old girlfriend over Glinda the good witch from Oz. She insisted that Glinda was manipulating Dorothy to assassinate the Wicked Witch of the West and convince the Wizard to leave to create a political void she could fill.

I conceded the issue when I heard the whole premise because I thought it was too damn stupid to get worked up over.


Keep Your Hands to Yourself

Just the other day I legit got in an argument with my co-workers on why I don't like my butt being grabbed by anyone (I'm a guy). Seriously.

They went on about "I don't mind it. Mike and I do it all the time and we don't care." Yeah, that's nice dude, but I'm not you, and there's something called "Keep your hands to yourself" (which was taught to a good portion of us growing up). Just like how Karen wouldn't like it if I touched her boobs or her grabbing your crotch or frankly ANY area you wouldn't like being grabbed, keep away. In general, you should not be touching me in any areas after I've told you not to several times before.

So unless you're sleeping me or dating me, keep your damn hands off my toosh.



My best friend and I argued over whether or not telekinesis was possible. Her argument was that humans don't yet know what the human brain at 100% usage was capable of, and that telekinesis was inside the possibilities.

I said the brain does use 100%, just at different times.

We didn't speak to each other for four days.



How dolphins reproduced and whether or not ghost existed (back to back with the same person). It took me a few solid minutes of explaining to her that dolphins have reproductive organs and that they did not just pop into existence (the argument began with her saying she wanted to work with sea creatures).

How it shifted to the existence of ghosts is a solid and reasonable question to ask (I don't remember why). I had to then proceed to tell her that ghost hunting TV shows do not constitute as undeniable evidence.

Personally, I hope she was messing with me cause I lost a little faith in humanity that day. This was in high school SO... hopefully she was kidding.


Dogs and Chocolate


I told this stupid woman that chocolate is toxic to dogs. She went on to tell me how a little bit will just make them hyper and then they will calm down. I told her to google it. Her and her bf shut right up. Now they have a kid. Good luck, Jeremy and Andrea. morons.

I should also add that this argument started because Jeremy was giving his tiny dog chocolate and I told him it was toxic.


Is water wet?

My roommate and I have a recurring argument over whether or not water is wet l, and whether or not a person is considered wet underwater.

For the record, it is no to both questions.


Mission Trip

A kid a church telling me about the mission trip I went on. Not only was I not on that trip, but I had never been on any mission trip. We were good friends, so it's not like he would've mistaken someone else for me.

He insisted I was there as if an entire week long trip would just fall out of my memory. He even had stories of things we'd done together. I'm not sure if he thought I was lying, joking, stupid, or crazy, but I was pretty sure he was some combination thereof.


Dragon Tales

One time I got into a shouting match with my mom and little brother in the car. The issue? The names of the two-headed dragon from the PBS kids afternoon show Dragon Tales. I swore it was Zack and Macie.

It was actually Zak and Wheezie. I don't even remember why we were yelling about it.


Green Or Yellow?

When I was about 15 or so my mother and I spent about 20-30 minutes arguing about the color of a shirt. We agreed it was blue/green, but to me it was just a shade more blue, while to her it was just a bit more green.

Turns out, your eyeballs yellow as you age and hers were 24 years yellower than mine, so I think that skewed her color vision.


Stars In Their Multitude


I once got in an argument over whether or not a line from the song "Stars" in Les Mis says "...but mine is the way of the lord" or "mine is the way of the law".

I didn't even really care what he thought but he was so adamant and cocky that it got me heated. By the end of it we were shouting at each other and I had to apologize, which I think is what he wanted the whole time.



My brother is colorblind. And he CONSTANTLY tries to correct me on what color things are.

"Hey could you hand me that red _____?" "that's orange" "no, it's red" "orange" "YOU CANT EVEN KNOW".

It is the base of our most common and heated arguments.


Hot Water

About five years ago, my girlfriend (now wife) once had a very intense argument about whether or not hot water cleaned things better than cold water.

She genuinely believed that water temperature didn't matter. This is someone who has not one, but two masters degrees.

We argued for something like 2 hours, and we seriously almost broke up over the whole thing.

I had an argument with a girl IN THE MIDDLE OF A BIOLOGY CLASS in high school about how humans are not mammals. She thought a human was a human and we are not mammals because "mammals are animals and humans are not animals"

I tried explaining to her the difference between reptiles and mammals and how humans fall under the mammal category to try and educate her... but she just wouldn't listen.

I still have no idea why the BIOLOGY teacher did not get involved...


Solid Or Liquid?

Some classmates and I got into a heated debate as to whether or not the human body could count as a soup, salad, or sandwich. The teacher got mad at us, but hey! All we were doing was watching a movie.

For the record, my logic lays with soup- Liquid contained within a solid, at a hot temperature.
