Modern poetry is all about experimentation. As writers are also known to procrastinate on their own work, there has been an increase in (very) short poems over the centuries.

Some conversations are at their most entertaining when heard one-sided, fragmented, or completely out of context. On Reddit, a group of people share the most unforgettable things they have overheard by chance. 1 I was out walking one evening, and passing by the scene of an altercation heard the following: Officer: Why did you bodyslam that guy? Fighter: Because I couldn't pick up the earth and hit him with it. - uncledahmer 2 A friend of mine had this happen: He was sitting on the metro in one of those where you sit face to face to eachother. It's him, an old lady, a punk & a young woman with her child.

Many of us have heard of the sinister origins behind favorite nursery rhymes, but some of the stories are much more interesting than the rhymes themselves. Here are a few good ones. 1.

The rhyme "Goosey Goosey Gander" refers to Catholic priests looking for places to hide to say Latin prayers, which they were not free to recite even in their own homes. 2.

Eventually, it was catastrophically destroyed, giving us the rhym...
Out of all the billions of people on this planet, many love to share their common bits of advice and wisdom to help the rest of us get along. The problem is that people are horrible. The next time someone tells you to do the following, think twice before acting. 1. "Just say what's on your mind." No. If you always said what was on your mind, you would end a lot of your friendships and alienate everyone around you--especially if you're prone to mood swings or have a temper.
