I don’t know if I’m becoming a grumpy old man but I don’t understand a lot of current pop culture.
Am I weird? Am I alone on this one?
Somebody validate my feelings!
And in the meantime, check out what these AskReddit users find strange that everyone else seems to think is normal.
1. Just can’t do it.
“Cheering in a crowd.
I just can’t bring myself to woooooooo!”
2. Kinda weird.
“As a dog owner and cat owner I sometimes look at them and think, “there is literally an animal living in my house whose ancestors ran free and hunted other animals and it is just laying upside down all cute on its bed beside me and also can’t eat unless I give it food”.”
“The entire concept of laughter.
Why does our face contort and our diaphragm spasm when certain things happen?
And how do our brains decide what things are funny and what things aren’t?”
4. Weird and wild stuff.
“Our stomach naturally produces hydrochloric acid. It’s corrosive and can burn through your skin and tissues. Buuuuut our stomach lining is covered in mucus to prevent us from eating inside out.
Have you seen hydrochloric in a science experiment? That chemical reaction is insane! Makes sense as we eat meat, bones and catrilage sometimes.”
5. It’s amazing!
“Birds having a built in GPS system.
They can fly south for the winter, then fly back to the exact same tree up north.”
6. Does a body good.
“The fact that humans drink other animals’ milk. Like that liquid isn’t for us.
People find the thought of drinking human milk gross but it’s especially formulated for us.
It’s something that should he consumed for nutrients when we’re babies, not a regular drink.”
7. Pretty cool.
“Languages, or just talking in general.
The fact that we’ve given meaning to a bunch of random sounds made by our vocal chords is bizarre when you think about it. Like, how did this even start?
How were we able to decide what should be called what? For example, how did we decide that a rock is called a rock or that the sky is called the sky?”
8. The digital age.
“The Internet. How it works, and also just the whole concept of it.
Complete strangers on literally the other side of the planet can interact with me almost instantaneously.”
9. Sloppy kisses.
“Kissing. I mean, I like it. It’s nice.
But honestly, who was the first person to say “let’s mash my mouth against your mouth and see what happens”?”
10. Never thought about that…
Like, there are these random squiggles and we can instantly interpret them into complex thoughts, concepts, feelings, emotions – from people we’ve never met or sometimes even heard of before.
11. All I have to do is dream.
Whole worlds, people following some kinda plot. Coming to same places in different dreams, sometimes years away.
Then we wake up and puff! Off it goes”
12. One of the best parts of life!
I have two dogs that I love to death but when I really think about it, I realize they’re just two random animals that I saw one day and said “yeah I like that one” and put them in my home against their will and I give them food regularly and smother them with more affection than I give to other people.
And those two random animals seem to think that’s totally dope and show signs of liking me back.”
I don’t know why. Your teeth are the only part of your skeleton that you can see. You bleach ’em, you lose em, you put metal racks on them so you remold your bones to the shape that society finds visually appealling.
There’s a fictional woman that breaks into your house to pay you for these bones. It sounds like a straight up sociopath. We get film on them that calcifies & solidifies & makes other bone-like material. Like teeth are weird, dude.”
What do you think about this?

Thanks a lot!
