Cherry-picked instead of the “randomly selected” that the page implies? Sure. Maybe. Cynical me admits that’s possible.
BUT these stories are also just as likely true. These experiences I’ll never understand are some people’s daily life.

“We should be careful, though,” caution says, parroting the words fear whispers. “We should be wise as serpents.”
Yes, let’s. Wise as serpents, we’re to be–but not actual snakes.
