23 People Share What They Always Suspected About Their Families

Every family has secrets. Whether it is the family’s secret apple pie recipe, or the secret child who lives in the attic. Families try to keep a secret a secret by only teaching certain people the recipe, or tightening the child’s chains.

The thing about secrets, though, is that they get out eventually. Someone will leak the recipe, or someone might begin to wonder what those strange noises coming from attic are. 

Even if you try to keep these family secret from your own family member, they will piece it together eventually. After enough slices of apple pie or listening to the howling night after night, the clues start to add up.

To be clear, these are just examples that do not need follow up questions. I promise you, my family does not have a secret apple pie recipe. 

  1. She may as well just see this thing through

    That my mom really doesn’t like us but is still committed


  2. She failed, by the way

    That my mother attempted to kill me and my father, more than once.


  3. Shh.

    I think my dad might be a spy.

    He used to be in the airforce, where he was trained in radio comms and cryptography. He had a top secret clearance due to this job, and spent hours every day training in Wing Chung kung-fu.

    After he “left” he took up a a job with a company in some industrial estate, where he was unable to explain what it was he actually did, and was often sent overseas on “business trips”.

    I think something went down though, because he left and started working on some “small businesses” with a RAAF mate of his. At one point he moved to Malaysia for three months. Something else must have gone down, cause he stopped doing that and went into real estate.

    But I suspect he got bored, and got back into the game, because he started working for another “company” doing another job he can’t really explain, only now I think he’s a handler or something. He’s still sent abroad, but less often. He spends a lot of time at the office, and he’s always working on these weird projects using old radio tech.


  4. We need to have a talk…

    I saw on my younger brother’s birth certificate the “Previous Children From Same Parents” field blank. Either the doctors fucked up, I’m adopted or I’m the milkman’s son. Hoping it’s the first.


  5. He’ll be back any day now

    I think my father hasn’t really been searching the world for that one fine cigarette for twenty years now


  6. That is pretty dark

    This is pretty dark but I think my brother was molested by my grandmother. He slept in her bed until he was 12 and she babied him. Treated him like her husband pretty much.


  7. Let’s hear more about this

    That it is the destiny of the men in my family to kill at least one other person, whether because of duty, hate, or necessity. None of us have any criminal record btw.


  8. Just have someone else make the meal

    My aunt cooks the Thanksgiving turkey with the plastic bag of fowl innards still inside the bird.


  9. Did he know you were going to say this?

    I think my Dad might have superpowers and not telling me. His power, he can see the future.

    Many numerous times he has predicted otherwise unpredictable and unforeseeable events and knew things that you otherwise wouldn’t have been able to guess for a while.


  10. Seems unlikely

    My mother is a virgin


  11. Worse than death by Snoo Snoo

    They eat men. There is not a single man in my family. We are all a pack of women and I think they have developed a taste for blood and testosterone.


  12. Haha. Yes. Joking.

    Well, my father has consistently joked with us that he is an alien. Roughly 600 years old. I suspect he’s telling the truth.


  13. So long, everyone

    I suspect both my parents have exactly the life they want now that I’ve moved so far away. My father has my brothers. He was never thrilled with having a daughter. My mother essentially has no kids now since she cut off my older brother (my younger brother is not her son) and rarely speaks to me, if at all. My suspicions of her are based on more evidence, since she abandoned my brother and I as children.


  14. You all should go on Maury

    That my father isn’t actually my father. There was a time in the 70’s, when the sexual revolution was in full swing and before my holy-roller uncle had become a holy-roller, that my parents won’t talk about. But unsolicited comments have been made by people outside the family how I look more like my uncle than my father. And if you work backwards from my birthday, it would have taken place around Christmas time when the whole family was together.

    It’s not something I can really prove because no one old enough to remember that time is willing to talk about it. And even though I joke about it with my father, the idea of a paternity test is off the table. The only proof I have is when my mother had started to succumb to Pick’s disease and became really REALLY honest. But even then I can’t guarantee its true since at the time she would also tell us about the aliens that were outside her window. So my life may be a complete lie, or it could be all true. I have no way of knowing which it is.


  15. It was a different time.

    That my great uncle (my grandma’s brother) was gay.

    I would have never had an issue with it, but if he had came out to his family, it would have been a huge scandal.

    There isn’t any kind of proof of it, it’s just a feeling I always got from him (he never got married among other things). And I’m not the only (younger) member of the family that thought so.


  16. Oh, boy.

    I think my parents hate each other.

    At the start of September my mom wasn’t home and I didn’t have my phone and I forgot her number so I was trying to find a way to call her. Being the nosey little shit I am, I went on her computer and looked through her facebook for numbers of family friends that maybe I could call and get her number from.

    Eventually this led to me going through her e-mail (I know I know this was wrong but I needed to call her it was urgent) I found an e-mail to my dad titled “I don’t love you” I read it over and over again, completely in disbelief. They fought sometimes but they always seemed so happy, I quickly copied the message and saved it to a google doc.

    I haven’t confronted them about it, it’s eating me up inside, but I’m afraid they’re only holding it together to keep me and my sister happy and if I confronted them they would get a divorce. I just can’t do that to my sister.


  17. I think we may all be oops babies

    I was going to be aborted. My mom hates babies and she wanted a career. I was an opps baby and it kinda slipped out of my dad’s mouth. I don’t blame her though.


  18. That adjective does make this better

    That my parents are functioning alcoholics.


  19. At least they found someone after finding someone

    I’m pretty sure both of my parents are having affairs, and I’m not sure if they both know or they don’t. I’m not sure which one makes me feel worse.


  20. Family road trips must have been quite an experience

    My dad ran drugs (cocaine) over the border into San Diego in the 70s. His best friend spilled the beans to me one night working on my car after a few barley pops.

    Mentioned how they used to smoke grass and that they were bringing kilos and kilos of white into the US and that it was so damn easy at the time.

    That being said, I over heard him one time talking to a close friend of his that had just gotten a great life insurance plan. My dad says ‘oh they’re not going to know about it until I’m gone. Its so much that they’d want to off me in a quick minute. I saved and saved and saved.’

    I’m convinced he has a decent amount of cash waiting in an out of country bank account for when he retires and for my siblings when he dies. He’s very secretive when it comes to his income and spending. I grew up upper middle class and never really worried about money (I hope that doesn’t sound douchey, just trying to describe it).


  21. Are you sure you don’t believe this?

    i don’t anymore, but when i was little I thought my dad was Indiana Jones


  22. This a legitimate horror movie

    Something traumatic happened to me when I was around 5.

    I have a blank spot about 7 or 8 months long. I have clear memories of before and after. During the same time, my older sister and brother left home (16 and 17).

    My youngest brother who is about 8 years older than me alluded to it but wont say what. My Mom acts like she doesnt know what I am talking about. My Dad wouldnt say shit, and he died several years ago.

    I dont have any idea what it could be, but 40 years later ill wake up really terrified over an unknown face and fear of nothing in particular.

    I remember moving into this house and later moving out, and almost nothing while we were there. My memories from the time we left that house are fine.


  23. Genes don’t lie


    I’m late to the party, but here goes. My suspicion started in 9th grade biology when we were learning genetics, specifically attached/detached earlobes. Mine are attached, whilst my parents were detached. This didn’t add up for me, and always left a question in the back of my mind.

    Fast forward to 2015, dad died in 10, and mom’s health is rapidly deteriorating. I was visiting mom in the home December 27 for XMas and her birthday (28th). She tells me that I was adopted, and that my “cousin” is my real mom, and her two kids are my siblings. I was 39 when I finally got proof to something I always suspected.

    Genetics are never wrong.

This Woman Named Barbara Looks Exactly Like Barb From 'Stranger Things' And People Are Freaking Out

Perhaps one of the greatest injustices of Netflix original shows was the apparent demise of Barb in Stranger Things. No apologies for the spoiler alert — it’s your fault for not watching yet). 

The one character who seems to have a good head on her shoulders (and who doesn’t get caught up in personal drama) perishes! Naturally, the good people who sit on couches and binge watch new Netflix shows were pretty outraged by this development. 

But one Redditor has some evidence that is making Stranger Things fans feel a little bit better… Perhaps Barb lives and is thriving today!

Redditor jujuness uploaded the following photo of a coworker and it is blowing everyone’s minds. 


And it gets crazier. The photo is captioned:

My coworker brought in her senior picture from the 80’s. Also her name is Barbra and goes by Barb.


We knew that season 1 couldn’t be the end of Barb!

The photo has blown up overnight; the Barb doppelganger received over 400,000 views. 

Reddit was relieved to hear the news, especially after the months of uncertainty about Barb’s fate. 

I think we finally found Barb.


Oh thank god she’s safe. Can’t believe it, but she’s a tough cookie.


She was in accounting the whole time.


But what is life like for her now?


Christmas lights would really start to trigger some ptsd


This calls into question those disclaimers are the beginning…


“Any similarity to actual persons, living or dead is purely coincidental…”
Yeah, right!


This level of similarity is no coincidence. 

Do the producers of the show know about this??

Someone tweet this shit at the official ST account.


They might have to change the storyline, now. 

#BarbLives, everyone.

This Aunt Caught Her Niece Sleeping On Her Head And People Are Freaking Out

Halloween is fast approaching, and people are pretty easily spooked this time of year. Twitter user Mikaela Long recently babysat her niece and was understandably concerned for her own safety when she looked at the monitor to see the baby sleeping on her head. 

Remind you of anything?

People were pretty terrified by the whole thing.

While others saw an opportunity.

The child’s mother told Buzzfeed that the girl has been doing this a lot lately, so there’s probably nothing to be worried about. “She’s been quite acrobatic lately,” she said. But said that like us, she has no idea why she actually sleeps on her head. “I think it’s just her settling down and getting comfortable,” she said.

People Are Breaking Their Phones To Take Selfies While High-Fiving Themselves

You’d think people would be careful with something that can cost in excess of $ 500. But after Twitter user Seth Schneider was able to take a picture while he high-fived himself, people are trying to do the same and breaking their phones in the process. 

It all started with this tweet, which acquired more than 170,000 retweets. 

And people were quick to take up the challenge…

And this guy took it one step further…

Somewhere, Tim Cook is smiling thinking of all these phones that need to be repaired.

15 People Revealed The Juicy Details Of Their Sexcapades In Cars

If things are getting a little stale in the bedroom, a change of location never hurts. But romantic beach encounters or hotel getaways are a little difficult to organize, so, sometimes, you have to go a little high school — car sex. 

We’ve all done it at one point or another. Maybe we didn’t have an empty room available or just liked the thrill of possibly getting caught. Ahh, memories. 

Well, the people of Whisper are no different. They confessed to their juiciest and naughtiest car activities and it’s giving us major nostalgia:

Archaeologists Just Unearthed A Skeleton Mosaic Telling People To 'Enjoy Your Life'

Hey, you wanna see the chillest skeleton of all time just kicking back and relaxing?


That’s what archaeologists just dug up when they were excavating a site on the Turkish-Syrian border. The mosaic dates back 2,400 years, but if the inscription on this picture of our laid-back, boney bro proves anything, it’s that human beings haven’t changed.

Because it translates to “Be cheerful, enjoy your life”. The artwork was discovered in what is believed to be the affluent Greek-Roman city of Antiocheia.


In the photo there’s two other figures, one, dark-skinned, and unfortunately eroded by time. The other, white and rocking a toga, reaching for a crescent.

Demet Kara, an archaeologist who helped discover the amazing mosaic, said in an interview with the Hurriyet Daily News said that the three figures represent what upper-echelon Roman peeps valued above all: bathing and eating.

“In the middle scene, there is a sundial and a young clothed man running towards it with a bare-headed butler behind. The sundial is between 9pm and 10pm – 9pm is the bath time in the Roman period. He has to arrive at supper at 10pm. Unless he can, it is not well received. There is writing on the scene that reads he is late for supper and writing about time on the other.

In the last scene, there is a reckless skeleton with a drinking pot in his hand along with bread and a wine pot. The writing on it reads ‘Be cheerful and live your life.'”

It turns out that long before we were using skeletons as memes, the ancient Romans were too – they thought skellies were hilarious.


Like this booze-loving skeleton with two jugs of wine who’s ready to party to death.

Or this skeleton laying down next to his scythe seductively with the phrase, “Know thy self” inscribed beneath him.


All right, that seems a little more creepy than anything, but seriously, that sexy skeleton pose is kinda hilarious in a macabre way.

Kara says she’s still studying the site’s findings with her team but that they’ll be publishing their findings soon. Hopefully it’ll be an awesome collection of ancient party examples. Oh, and more skeleton memes. (h/t sciencealert)

19 People Explain Why They Prefer Having A Friend With Benefits Over A Relationship

There are varying degrees to any relationship we all hold nowadays. Sometimes, we split the type of relationship we keep with certain folks and get the full experience of interacting with one pleasant person by keeping them in rotation. I do this with different groups of friends, and do everything in my power to make sure that none of them ever meet to keep everything in balance.

Recent years has seen a movement that has existed for ages be named and become more popular. FWBs, or friends with benefits, are exactly what they sound like. They’re people that are cool to hang with and simultaneously get physically intimate with, sans post copulating issues.

Some people are too busy to keep a relationship healthy, or are no longer interested in having one at all after one too many negative experiences, but still have certain primal needs that still need to be addressed. There are plenty of reasons to go this route, but here are 19 of them from people that already chose to stick with the FWB lifestyle, at least for the time being.

Unfortunately, some people cross those lines…repeatedly.  Despite having access to many other beds for sex, these people seem to be hooked on hooking up in someone else’s bedroom.

  4. Translation: Once

  5. Probably the same reason they enjoy doing it there too

  11. Condumb
