Do evening naps make you indescribably sad? Have you ever gotten vertigo when you're lying down, perfectly still? Does it feel like your ears "reset" themselves sometimes? These are just a few of the unique sensations described on Reddit in a post that blew up overnight on Tuesday. If you've wondered whether other people experience life in the same way you do, this is the post for you.
It all started with a simple question posted on Ask Reddit: "What's a sensation that you're unsure if other people experience?" In less than a day, more than 37,000 users had commented on the post, describing feelings they weren't sure happened to other people and commiserating when they found someone who experienced the same thing. Sometimes, it was far more than a single person. From out-of-body experiences to hallucinations just before sleep, some comments brought together literally hundreds of people who had no idea others felt the same way.
This isn't actually the first time this question has been asked. Around this time last year, Reddit user Umikaloo created the exact same post on Ask Reddit, and it wound up being equally popular.
The lesson? None of us are as unique as we might think. Whether that's a good or a bad thing depends on the sensation in question, I suppose. The only way to find out is to read through the thread yourself, or check out the highlights below.
