    Testicle Baby

    From Redditor u/Acceptable-Attorney

    When you have a baby you have to push one of your testicles out and it became the baby egg. I had no idea how I was my parent's third child.

    The Dark Side Of 'Cocoon'

    From Redditor u/jdnursing

    I remember watching the movie cocoon with my grandparents. I could not have been more than 4. For some reason I deduced that in order to become adults, children had to die in these pool cocoons and be reborn old. I freaked my cousins out and had a whole group of kids crying at a holiday party over our impending doom. Ruined Christmas pictures that year.
