Humans are curious creatures and sometimes have more questions than answers. Over the centuries, however, we've accumulated quite a bit of knowledge. So if someone needs a quick fix of information, they can always open the Bible or an encyclopedia. Or Reddit. More and more people are turning to /r/AskReddit in search of the truth, and while the responses they get don't always seem scientifically sound, they're as hilarious as the funny questions themselves.

Want to know how to make friends? Best ask Reddit! Or what was ruined because too many people started doing it? Funny Reddit users will answer! If you're not afraid of slipping down the Reddit advice hole, check the compilation below at your own risk - you might get addicted to these top Reddit questions and answers quickly. So, scroll down to get the answers and upvote your favorites!

I believe this must be pounds, and then it would be 135 kgs to 81 kgs. Does not sound bad!

From a man to ladies: you might think the hints you give are very obvious, but they are not! And if you like a man, make the first step yourself. Don't get upset if a man doesn't get your "obvious" hints.

What a horrible thought, and what a waste for that room. I would turn it into a cozy area to play video games that I do not have time for, read the books I always wanted to read, and spend time with loved-ones when days are too stressful.

My favourite is (translated by me to English so sorry that it might sound like it): A man walks into the surgical ward in a hospital saying: "Hello, I think I'm a moth." A nurse replies: "I'm sorry, this is the surgical ward, psychiatry is on the third floor." "I know but you had the lights on."

While I was in Venice I was walking with a friend. Suddenly, we hear some boys commenting on our bottoms just behind us in our mother language. Now I'd make a snarky comment back at them. We were just too confused to do this then, sadly. I still get real embarassed just thinking about it.

Taiwanese friend and her sister were in an elevator in Taiwan, gorgeous foreign guy gets in. Friend teaches Chinese, so she knows many foreigners in Taiwan speak Mandarin, so she and her sister start discussing the guy's looks in Taiwanese (difficult language to learn, so most don't). Elevator stops, guy gets out, turns around, and in fluent Taiwanese thanks them for the compliments .

at the italy area in epcot, all the employees speak italian. they were talking trash about this older woman in the shop who kept bragging about having italian great grandparents or something. at one point they were so fed up with her i just burst out laughing, and their eyes widened in panic. so i responded in italian "that's hilarious! i was just thinking the same thing" and we all laughed loud enough that the other customers started staring.

I'd just had a spectacular new hair cut. Washing my hands in a shop bathroom, an elderly lady said laughingly to her daughter in Welsh 'Look at that girl's hair!' I replied in Welsh 'What's wrong with my hair?' Elderly woman was horrified, 'I didn't know you could speak Welsh!' (yeah, obvs.) We were in Cardiff, the capital city of Wales. Not everyone is a Welsh speaker here by any means, but why take the risk?!

My aunt moved to the UK when she was 23-4 (it was around 2000) to work as an Au-Pair. She's Hungarian and made some friends (also Hungarian Au-Pairs) and they went out one day somewhere, the story is my aunt has a small tattoo on the back of her neck and they were standing in a queue and there was a bunch of teens behind them, one of them speaking out loud in Hungarian: "look this girl has a tattoo on her nape" and a friend of my aunt's turned to them: "and she also understands what your talking" 😀😀😀

I was in a hostel in London and two girls came in the room. They asked me of direction to their beds and I helped them (in english or course). I continued with my business. They then got to their bed and started to talk about quite personal things in Finnish, which is my native language. I didn't want to embarrass them, so I just hid my stuff (like thoothpaste) with Finnish logos or text and continued the week with some juicy stories and gossip. It was quite nice to hear familiar language as I was traveling for few weeks alone.

I was at a library, lady next to me spoke to her child in French and pointed at my hair saying that is what it would end up like if he didn't take care of his, I turned around and just politely said "Qu'est-ce que tu a dit?" Safe to say they hightailed it out of there

I'd just had my hair done at a top salon, and was feeling mighty fine. Whilst washing my hands in a department store ladies' room, and older woman shot me a quick glance in the mirror, and said to her daughter (in a 'what the h£ll has she done to herself?! tone of voice) in Welsh 'Look at that girl's hair!' I did a double take, and fired back - also in Welsh - 'What's wrong with my hair?' Cue acute embarrassment and many grovelling apologies from the woman. The odd thing is - we were in Cardiff, the capital city of Wales. Why on earth would she think no-one else could speak Welsh?

worked at a second hand shop in Ireland. a customer asked me for a specific lace. never heard of before, didn't know what he wanted and send him to a colleague. so may he could help. he just left the shop and came back to me to ask where i come from. told him, that i'm from Germany. The next moment he answered in perfect german (with saxon dialect) that he could have said that to me right away... :D

My sister's cat suddenly seemed to get fatter overnight. We thought it was doing the above until one day we found it fighting with another cat - which looked exactly like it, but thinner. Things went 'click' and we realized we had been feeding an impostor who kept chasing my sister's actual cat off when he tried to come home. Smartest thing I've ever seen an animal do.
