So what is the least amount of power that has ever gone to your head?" Replies Include: "Making people yawn is fun. I’ve also noticed that sometimes dogs will yawn if you do it in front of them." "My wife cannot sneeze if anyone tells her "Bless you" before she sneezes. I actively have to stop myself from messing up her sneezes..." --"My ex partner used to say “red balloons” EVERY TIME I needed to sneeze. It cancelled my sneeze upload and now I require insane amounts of concentration and for people to literally look away in order to sneeze."
"Being in the front of a line of cars, rolling a little forward then watching the cars behind you slowly pull up one by one. Hilarious power." "When my wife talks, you can give her anything and she will take it unconsciously. No matter what it is: diaper, used hanky, half eaten food, trash … most of the time she won’t realize it until minutes later and then gets mad at you. As of now I haven’t found anything she won’t take." "Everytime we made bratwurst I suggest sex. Now Everytime we make bratwurst my wife wants to have sex. It's the little things that keep a marriage going after 15 years." "I have the ability to know which Tupperware will fit the leftovers within 5% of its maximum volume. It infuriates my partner because they can’t understand how I could be that accurate every single time." "I put a child lock on my trashcan to keep my dog from eating trash and I am drunk with power." "Offering people chewing gum without chewing some yourself will make them feel self-conscious about their breath, and puts them on the back foot, mentally. It's surprisingly effective, and it feels like having a certain level of power over someone, but it's also not very nice."

Replies Included: "A friend and I were passing out Halloween candy when two probably 13-year-old girls walked up in tie-dye sweats, hair in a bun, holding Hydro Flasks.

GUYS: "How Would You Feel If Your Girl Got You Flowers?"
Reddit user u/lolkristin asked: "How would you feel if your girl got you flowers?" Replies Included: "I bought my boyfriend roses to celebrate his promotion. he was just like "why?" haha..." "...as a man, I rather receive something with more practical uses. I got it, flower has a deep meaning and all, but I prefer lunch or some other items such as a belt or a book." "Once the girl I was seeing got me some flowers as a 'sorry' for missing our date - because of things totally out of her control too. I nearly cried, I loved it so much. We were pretty casual too, at the time. The next time she gave me flowers was on valentines day, as she flew up from her city to see me, on a tiny private plane. White flowers in her hands when I picked her up off the tarmac." "I have always thought a small plant was a far better gift than flowers. Flowers are nice for a few days then die, but a plant can remind you of the gesture for a long time, each time you tend to it." -- "A plant is an obligation. Don't give plants unless you know they will be appreciated." "I bought a guy a bouquet of red roses, as he mentioned he had never received flowers and would love to receive some someday. He was thrilled and put them in a vase and tended to them so well that they lasted weeks and weeks! He was just so happy for a beautiful gesture of my affection that he could look at everyday. Not all gifts have to be practical but I would say maybe gauge if the receiver likes flowers and might like to receive something like this, as gifts should always be targeted to the likes of the receiver." "I'd feel pretty. Oh, so pretty. I'd feel pretty, and witty and..." "I'd be happy, she cares about me. Sometimes it's the intention behind an action that matters." "I'd accept them and tell her it's not my thing but also make sure I let her know how much I love and appreciate the gesture. Also tell her to get me bouquet of churros next time or anything else I could eat, wtf am I supposed to do with flowers."

High School Edits Clothes Onto Female Yearbook Pictures
A Florida high school made edits to 80 yearbook pictures, adding clothes onto photos of female students without their consent. Bartram Trail High School is getting slammed by parents after editing pictures for what the district claims are students “out of dress code." A photo of one female student was changed to add more covering to her chest area. Most of the edits added clothing to chest and shoulders. And the editing is not high quality PhotoShopping. Parents say the alterations are so obvious that students are making jokes about them. District officials said Bartram Trail reserves the right to digitally adjust pictures, and they opted to alter the pics rather than leave them out of the yearbook. The yearbook sold for $100 each. The high school faced a local controversy earlier this spring over its dress code, which parents said unfairly targets female students.
