We all want to know who we are. To take advantage of it. It can take a lifetime for some. For others, just a few seconds. Even if they don’t own it.

520K people are members of a subreddit called r/ActLikeYouBelong. You must be wondering why so many. It has a lot of stories, pictures, and videos of people pretending to be someone else.

You will surely find it surprising how many of these evil geniuses get away with their crimes.




 

1. Beauty pageant contest for children.

 

2. The so-called “social media influencers”.

 

3. The reality T.V. shows. So shouldn’t have existed!

 

4. The subscription models for the products we purchase.

 

5. The Shark fin soup. Millions of Sharks are killed every year for it.

 

6. Gender reveal parties.

 

7. The ads that pop up towards the end of a video on YouTube.

 

8. Landmines. Lots of livestock and wild animals are killed because of them.

13. Bot calls.

20. Autoplay videos on platforms that aren’t even concerned with videos at all.

25. Cigarettes. So many would’ve lived longer without them.

 

26. Microtransactions on various apps. Especially the pay-to-win ones.
