22 Totally Bonkers Things People Actually Believe

The thing about our beliefs is that they’re just that: ours. This isn’t about religious affiliation or anything dangerously extremist. This is about stuff that matters, like believing that talking to your computer will make the internet work faster, or thinking that what you do while watching a football game affects the outcome. Some of these might be superstitions passed down through generations, and some might be unconscious habits you’ve developed over time that you can’t seem to shake. Whatever the case may be, these beliefs aren’t rooted in any kind of evidence whatsoever. 

Redditors, of course, have shared their wonkiest beliefs — from the existence of jackalopes to what’s happening in an alternate universe — and there’s nothing you can say or do to change their superstitious minds.
