The Average Person Thinks They Can Survive for 2 Weeks in the Wilderness
The average American thinks they can survive for 16 days alone in the wilderness. But... only 17 percent surveyed feel “very confident” in their ability to start a fire with flint. Just 14 percent feel the same about their ability to identify edible plants or berries in nature. While 52% are confident in their ability to identify different types of plants and trees, researchers put that to the test and discovered many weren’t quite as knowledgeable as they claimed. Only a quarter of respondents could identify a black oak leaf, while just 35 percent correctly spotted poison ivy when seeing it in a photo.

(TOPIC STARTER)... "What Made You Straight Up "Nope" Out of a Relationship?"
Reddit user u/MistaPwickles asked: "What made you straight up "nope" out of a relationship?" Replies include: "She threatened to stab me. "We were dating for a month." "She taped photos of her ultra sounds of a child she lost custody of with masking tape around my apartment on her first visit to my apartment." "He put a gun in my face and threatened to kill me. Noped right out even though we had been married for years and had kids. I wasn’t going to be around for the day he actually pulled the trigger." "She completely stopped showering because “punks don’t shower” and would then put massive amounts of patchouli on herself to the point where I have developed almost a fear of patchouli." "When my now ex wife came in to the living room where I was sleeping on the couch after a fight and started lunging at me. She asked me if she reminded me of my stepdad who used to come in my room at night and stand over me before he dragged me out of bed by my ankles. He would then put the boots to me for whatever sins I had committed that day." "She was the only person I had ever shared this with. She went out of town for work 2 days later and when she came home I was gone and in another state. It was remarkable the amount of abuse I put up with to that point. It dawned on me then that if he had returned to my life I wouldn’t let him hurt me so there was no reason to let her abuse me either." "My brother took a girl to a high end sushi place and his date ordered 3x the food as he did (he just got a grilled salmon). She ate almost none of it and at the end she said she ordered all the extras so she could “take some home for tomorrow”. When the waiter showed up for the bill she excused herself to go to the bathroom. The waiter asked my brother if he wanted to split the check and at that point my brother did the right thing and stuck her with $100 worth of sushi and booze. The girl returned to see a huge check at her seat." "He canceled my order meal while I went to the bathroom because he thought I ordered too much. It was just small extra dumpling." "She kept waking me up over and over all night trying to have an argument with me. "The argument was about me going to sleep." "She picked me because I had the same first name, general appearance, and lived in the same area of the state as her ex fiance, of two years, that she had just been dumped by a month before we met. I felt even more offended about all of that than just being straight up rejected." "He told me I was stupid for “believing in dinosaurs”."
Woman Throws Away a Million Dollar Lottery Ticket, Gets it Back
A Massachusetts woman who accidentally tossed out a $1 million lottery ticket eventually collected her winnings thanks to the kindness and honesty of the owners of the store where she bought it. The woman bought the $30 Diamond Millions scratch-off ticket in March at the Lucky Stop convenience store in Southwick near where she works. The woman said, ”I was in a hurry, on lunch break, and just scratched it real quick, and looked at it, and it didn't look like a winner, so I handed it over to them to throw away.” The ticket ended up laying behind the counter for 10 days. The son of the store’s owners said: ”One evening, I was going through the tickets from the trash and found out that she didn’t scratch the number. I scratched the number and it was $1 million underneath the ticket." The woman is a regular customer, so the family knew immediately who had discarded it. They asked her to come to the store and they told her about the ticket. She said, "I was in total disbelief. I cried, I hugged them.” The store gets a $10,000 bonus from the state lottery commission for selling the winning ticket. The woman says she gave the family an additional reward. She's saving the rest for retirement.

'Friends' Star Matthew Perry Slammed For 'Bad Taste' With COVID Merchandise
“Friends” star Matthew Perry promoted more merchandise Monday ahead of this week’s HBO Max reunion special. But some fans are not pleased that the 51-year-old actor is modeling a black T-shirt with the Chandler-emphatic question, “Could I be any more vaccinated?” After he posted the image to Twitter and Instagram, fans called him out for linking the reunion with vaccinations during the coronavirus pandemic, which has recorded more than 167 million cases and topped 3.4 million deaths worldwide. One commented wrote, “Making money from a t-shirt relating to vaccines is in bad taste. Could I BE any more annoyed,” while another said simply, “i love you but this tshirt is not it haha.” One respondent noted, “Just propaganda machines for life huh? That’s all celebs are anymore.” Others chipped away at Perry’s marketing efforts on Instagram — where his post was “liked” by his “Friends” castmate Jennifer Aniston — saying, “they are monetizing their sudden rise in popularity because of the reunion. Just capitalism at work here, nothing new.” And another simply asked, “Why would I give a multi millionaire even more money?”
