People Are Sharing Their Craziest Childhood Stories And How Did Any Of Us Survive?

Kids always have these weird quirks, and when I mean weird, I mean, really weird. So weird that you have no idea where they picked up the quirk.

When I was three or four, I have distinct memories of sneaking into the bathroom to eat toothpaste when no one was looking. I don't know why I liked the taste of Aquafresh so much, but I just did.

When my son sits down, he does so in reverse-"Indian Style," with his knees flaring out to the side. I don't know how he gets his legs to do that, but just seeing it freaks me out. 

Eating things that shouldn't be eaten and sitting in a way that makes adults grimace, however, are pretty "normal" childhood behaviors compared to some of these stories that people are sharing on Twitter.

The thread was kicked off by @prinxeMu who recalled the time they showed just how far they were willing to go to not listen to their mom.

The moral of the story? @prinxeMu doesn't like being told what to do, even if it means destroying their hand in the process.

People started sharing their own tales of childhood insanity that revealed a lot about their character.

Whether it was a dangerous love for enthusiasm and sweets that lead to smashed teeth.

Or hating sock-creases.

Some children displayed stalwart problem-solving abilities from a young age.

While others were a bit more...unique.

Like being a serial couch-butterer.

Some kids had an obsession with changing outfits multiple times a day.

A behavior that followed them all the way into adulthood.

It's when this happens that my mom or dad would say, "See? What did I say? You see what happens?!"

There was this very precocious 4-year-old.

A precociousness that sometimes leads to nightmares.

Yeah maybe a 1st grader shouldn't be reading this.

A fun day at the pool goes sour.

But not sour enough to stop swimming.

Some were much less dramatic though.

Then there was this adorable story about religious guilt.

Everyone always loves a good bully revenge story.

Equally impressive is that they were able to throw a decent punch with their shoelaces tied.

RecircHumorForget France, Memes Are The Real World Cup 2018 Winner

If you were like pretty much everyone in the world, you were probably let down by the fact that Croatia didn't have their storybook ending in taking home first place in the 2018 World Cup. Sure, France had an amazing team and all that, and the contest's youngest MVP player, Mbappé, even donated all of his winnings from the tournament to charity—so I guess it's hard to be too upset with the competition's end result.

And even though everyone played their hearts out (except Egypt, I mean, they went again Saudi Arabia and the results were just embarrassing), there was a clear winner this World Cup and it actually wasn't even any of the teams. S

ure there's a first, second, and third place result, but all of those accomplishments pale in comparison to the wonderful memes that sprung up as a result of this glorious tournament.

More than a few were thanks to Brazil's Neymar.

RecircHumor22 Images That'll Give You Bad Luck Just By Looking At Them

I grew up in a marginally superstitious family who brought some beliefs and hocus-pocus superstitions from the old country. I couldn't make too much noise late at night for fear of attracting a "jinn." I couldn't point at cemeteries or stare into a mirror for too long or my face would become deformed, and heaven help me if I was ever mean to or disobeyed my parents or grandparents, because then I'd be looking at a cursed life that would ruin me until the day that I died.

But the idea of "back luck" or stepping on cracks, walking under ladders, or stealing a black cat's macchiato isn't something that my family really bought into. Sure, we believed in supernatural stuff and the idea that karma gets back around to mess with you or your kids, but "bad luck"? 

No honey, it isn't luck that's ruining your life, it's an unseen species of metaphysical monsters that exist in a different plane we know little about—but they are mentioned in the Quran, so be careful!

There are phenomena so unfortunate that simply looking at images of them will cause the same bad luck to befall you. So on this Friday the 13th, gaze upon these pictures with extreme caution.
