We all know very well that things in this world tend to backfire. Call it a law of nature, a frequent twist of fate, or destiny. “Look who’s laughing now” is a phenomenon that has happened to virtually every one of us, and no matter what you do, it repeats again and again, and again.

The Reddit community “There Was An Attempt” is dedicated to precisely the comic absurdity of all the attempts in life that went against the plan, or turned in the wrong direction. Created in August 2015, the subreddit now has 1.9m members that are not immune to the funny attempts that “were there.”

“People enjoy the slapstick comedy of it. At the end of the day, everyone is laughing,” the subreddit’s moderator told Bored Panda in the interview that you can read in full below. And now we leave the stage to the ensued hilarity.

Bored Panda spoke to redditor u/F4T4-M0RG4N4, the moderator of the r/ThereWasAnAttempt subreddit, who said that the community has evolved a lot since it was created 5 years ago.

“When I first joined the team, it was mostly a screenshot sub. A few months back, there was some drama about how there were only three mods who ran the subreddit (which at the time had around a million members).” As a result, they invited more people to join the moderator team and removed the screenshot posts.

For those who’re wondering what, precisely, “there was an attempt” refers to, u/F4T4-M0RG4N4 explained that it’s basically about “someone attempting something but ultimately failing.”

Conceptually, it’s similar to “if someone tried jumping off a trampoline into a pool but when they tried to jump, the trampoline tore. In that case, you could say, 'Well... there was an attempt, at least' and that’s where our subreddit comes into play.”

The posts are mainly about “some people having a dumb idea, trying out that idea, and failing.” This misery is what makes it so funny.

Today, the moderator team only allows video submissions and cross-posts, “which are posts that were in one subreddit but were reposted to another (kind of like retweeting.” This format works better for r/ThereWasAnAttempt, since screenshots can more easily become reposts, for one.

Especially when there’s one similar subreddit that’s specifically for social media clapbacks and comebacks, but its content mainly features screenshots.When it comes to their 1.9 million member count, the moderator said that “I don’t think we have the exact same post frequency as, say, a meme subreddit.”

Partly, it’s because it isn’t easy to repost something from r/ThereWasAnAttempt. “I could probably look at the new section for r/memes and see quite a few frequent reposts.”

Christmas and Easter existed before Christianity.

Luuta
Community Member

Many Christian festivals are based on pagan rites and rituals. As the church conquered the world they subsumed the pagan beliefs of the territories they conquered. So, for example, Yuletide and the Scandinavian Crampus were twisted into Father Christmas and Christ's birth was changed to December 25th to match. This was done to make it easier to "spread the word of Christ" (conquer) the local inhabitants. Ironically, Christmas cards and trees were Victorian inventions and Santa's red cloak came from an advertising campaign for Coca-Cola (originally Santa had a blue cloak). The Harvest Festival, also celebrated in many churches, is a pagan celebration common in many countries, thanking the Gods for a bountiful Summer and Autumn. The Greek and Roman pantheons had their own harvest gods, but the belief was also common in most of Europe, including Britain, Germany and Scandinavia. The Green Man was subsumed into Easter, too.

The Arabic calendar and the original Roman calendar were very similar, I believe (if I recall correctly), but the Roman calendar was later changed from 14 months to 12, with a change in the number of days in each, to match what had been learned about astronomy. When Christ was born, not only was he born in Spring or Summer, but because December 25 back then would not be the same day as it is today. Christ being born on Christmas Day is a lie. As well as being shifted to match a pagan festival, the Western Calendar changed enormously since his lifetime. The Arabic calendar would probably provide the most accurate anniversary for his birth today.

But, in general, that is a somewhat rare exception, certainly not the rule. Most scientists tend to be atheists and agnostics. The people with the most evidence about the universe have not found any scientific evidence supporting any god claims.

The so-called christmas is actually a celebration of the winter solstice, an astronomical event. And it was hijacked by religious people from the pagans because the church-fathers couldn't keep people from having fun on that day. The jesus figure is really supposed to be a springbirth, since no lamming takes place in winter, and it's way too cold even in Palestine of yore when the figure is supposed to have been born. Other "gods" supposedly born at winter solstice are Krishna, Horus, Mithra among very many others. The jesus figure is only one of many.

The primary thing that is problematic about religion is when it is imbued into legislation (abortion, marriage equity, etc.) Atheism imposes nothing - on no one. Ask Jefferson. I do t know why this is an issue. We are all free to accept faith/religion (or not) in this nation - pretty unique. It’s called freedom. Folks sailed here because the Church of England and the Monarchy. Simply put. Idiots think Christianity is American. My native indigenous ancestors/tribal members(dad) say that stuff has done more harm than good. Mission schools : teach people (who were fine before white folks came) how to sew, launder, serve - and regime to their beliefs and languages. Ah, hell nah.

For the same reason Christians happily accept days named after Pagan Gods - Tiu/Tyr's Day, Woden/Odin's Day, Thor's Day, Freya's Day, Saturn's Day. Even Sun Day and Moon Day have pagan origins for the names even if they're not literally named after Gods. If a day is a national holiday it's a national holiday and I get to take it as a holiday regardless of its origins. The fact it's based around Christian mythology has no more effect on my ability to take it as a holiday than the fact that day names are based around Pagan mythology stops a Christian using those names. When you successfully get the days (and months in some cases) renamed because the origin conflicts with your beliefs then you get to complain about me not working on Christmas.

Some religions don’t use medical care as it goes against their religion! I was in hospital once and a Johoviah’s witness was on the same ward. She didn’t realise she was supposed to be having tests, staying the whole week and possibly having surgery. She wouldn’t even be weighed! Let alone have a blood test or anything else. They don’t accept other people’s blood or organs etc so no transfusions or transplants. She tried to convert the whole ward though. Each to their own unless you try and ram your religion (of any kind) down my throat. I have a faith and that’s it

There was a time when christianity ruled the world and it was called the Dark Ages for a f-u-c-king reason. Science and the enlightenment drastically changed christianity's stranglehold on humanity for the better. The fundamentalist, dark age christians were as bad or worse than muslim extremists. Science greatly tempered religion. Don't ever forget that. Every time an abrahamic holy books makes a scientific claim, it fails. The catholic church used to kill people for saying the sun is the center of our planetary system. The popes have had to revise many of their positions as scientific evidence mounted. God claims are shrinking into the gaps of the knowledge we do not yet posses, becoming a god of the gaps. Study the history of religion; it tends to push back against science hard. Are you forgetting that christians have tried to and some continue to try to stop stem cell research?

At the end of these day, everyone needs a time to rest and celebrate certain milestones in the year and in their lives. The various belief systems in existence today provide a handy common denominator for most people, especially when financial institutions have to work on the same days for international business. I think Christmas is fabulous for families and children, not as a religious festival, but as a time to rest, celebrate and reflect. And I think Christians have an much a right to do the same at that time, even though the reasons behind it being then are bloody and false. Today, it's just a time for families.

Science is not an object of argument against faith. Science is God's work, but because God's work can be explained does not disprove its context. For example, I am taking biology and it is blowing my mind at how these cells seem to have a mind of their own to make us like what we are, much less the fact that different atoms and molecules have different properties to produce the same outcome almost every time. Pretty much each individual molecule has its own role, and they come together to serve another role. Everything is so organized. To call all of this an accident is beyond me. Anyway, we can pray for science which can lead us to the answer we are seeking under His discretion. There is some science explained so far during Jesus' death, but you can look it up for more information.

No, do NOT encourage them. Too many people already try to just pray and then lose the people they love because God or not, good people die when they won't help themselves.

Christmas is literally a festival celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ, and we have just adopted those traditions into Christmas. Christmas would be Christmas without all the other things.

God created man who devised scientific medical care. Through God, all things are possible.

If through god all things are possible, can you pray to god regrow an amputee’s limbs? Can you name a disease god has cured? Science has actually cured some diseases.

Universities are a Christian idea. The God of the bible created the scientific, mathematically complex universe.

Yes, that's why he wrote "π = 3" in his bestseller. Because he's big on mathematical complexities.

Yeah that's cause science is evidently from religious books and if you like to ponder over who created nature at first, who caused Big Bang, why human are not immortal, why do we have spiritual entities, who created the concept of time and why we can't reverse it, seconds minutes. God exists, if you don't believe it not judging you I just want u to ponder over it.

Just because we are not able to fully understand certain concepts right now doesn't mean we never will and it makes no sense to just throw up your hands and say "must be god floating around up there!" From history it's clear ancient humans thought lightning and thunder were the gods being upset at them, so they would make a sacrifice. Now we understand it is just small bits of water colliding causing electric charges. There is always an explanation whether we know it or not. It's not some mystery man in the sky.

Am proudly a Muslim just like a Christian proudly a Christian and also like an atheist who is proudly an atheist!!!!!!! It's our believe when people think about freedom of speech, they forget about hurting other people's religion, but when we stand for our rights we are themed as paranoid. Just leave us alone, stop looking for trouble which you wouldn't get and exercise Human Rights fairly not partially degrading other people's religion. I quote everyone is different yet you try to make everyone the same religion, race, tribe all " Differences matters, yet that makes us who we are, denying our differences is denying the truth " I am A PROUD MUSLIM, it's me not you allow me to practice my religion in peace and stop popnosing on my affairs, everyone deserves right to religion just as u think!

Flawless! And you should be able to make a audio contact with other people in real time so you can tell them, instead of typing a message for them.

But actually this is a technique I used in customer service. For example when you put a customer on hold to go get more info, you ask them if they’re happy to wait. When you get back you thank them for waiting. If you say “sorry for the wait” it suggests you did something wrong, when really you were just doing your job. It leaves a different impression on the customer and genuinely impacts satisfaction.
