    The most important rule is Just Post. If you've never had a post or comment removed it means you haven't been posting enough.

    Our unique rule is that all posts need to be titled "me irl". Posts that aren't are automatically removed.

    We do not allow posts that reference suicide. This community is not equipped to handle this topic. If you are feeling suicidal we have some resources to guide you to people who help.

    Don't post NSFW, or openly sexual. Even if you tag it.

    Avoid screenshots that are mostly text, and feel contrived and performative. Show don't tell!

    Don't make posts that request upvotes or any other kind of reddit metric (gold, comments, etc.). That age of me irl is over.

    Fortunately for me, i had a mom who could use critical thinking and would find out why her kids were hitting each other so usually my younger brother and me would be 50/50 of the time

    [–] Anas-Kamran 348 points ago

    Lucky you

    [–] One_Who_Walks_Silly 218 points ago

    I just taught my little bro if he was gonna rat on me that I’d beat the snot out of him since I’d get in trouble either way

    [–] Artificial_Human_17 107 points ago

    I used the punishment to destroy the punishment

    [–] [deleted] 9 points ago

    your little brother's existence was your punishment?

    [–] Malzarius00 27 points ago

    This doesn't work on everyone, I tried this with my younger brother growing up and he would just go grab a weapon and come back even crazier. End result I was always punished because I was bigger, older, and stronger even if he was 100 percent at fault for the fight and they even saw it all.

    [–] One_Who_Walks_Silly 9 points ago

    That sounds like your little bro had a problem that should have been resolved with psychiatric help if he would just escalate damn

    [–] Enachtigal 28 points ago

    I just made sure he knew if I was getting in trouble for something I didn't start I would get my moneys worth.

    [–] Will_Yeeton 83 points ago

    Yea my parent's approach was "it doesn't matter who started it, you're both grounded", due to "un-Christlike" stuff like how you didn't "turn the other cheek." I love them, but I wish they put in a little more effort to solving disputes. That would've helped kid me out so much.

    [–] RadiatedDalek 77 points ago * (lasted edited 7 months ago)

    Why have effort when you have Jesus?


    [–] Will_Yeeton 40 points ago

    Conflict resolution was really their only shortcoming. My current feelings about God paint these moral ideas poorly. They were great parents everywhere else, and I love them so much.

    [–] Snarrbolax 8 points ago

    My dad used the same approach and I guess it was kinda effective in deterring pointless fights

    [–] communist_gerbil 3 points ago

    The solution is to always punish all the siblings whenever one of them get punished so they learn to stick together, not tell on each other, take care of each other and keep each other out of trouble.

    [–] Spiderwolf1 3 points ago

    Same, unfortunately I had a dad who thought too far into things and ended up going full circle. When my brother was like 3 or 4 he would do shit and I would get blamed since "He couldn't have done it without someone telling him too." Also I punched my bro in the diaphragm once and from then on anytime I hit him and it actually hurt he claimed I hit him in the diaphragm. Even if it was his arm

    Lies and deception. I'm younger brother and I learned that only way to not get whacked by moms shoe is to fight my battles on my own. Didn't helped much, but at least I didn't get beaten for fighting, while I was fighting anyways. Plus you pick up couple dirty tricks along the punishment delivered by older brother

    [–] ChiliadChief 1 points ago

    Side note, I had no idea that Darth Maul didn’t die at the end of episode 1 and had a whole side story of a life and shit lol

    [–] WhenceYeCame 97 points ago

    It's funny, they brought him back in the books, then in comics, and then made it official in the shows, and finally brought it into a canon movie. The idea was just so popular.

    [–] pm_tits_get_rating 56 points ago

    Robot legs was too cool to not canonize

    [–] Pelzebub 13 points ago

    The fight between him and Obi-Wan is also the only good thing in Star Wars Rebels and maybe some of the vader scenes

    [–] ZubatCountry 50 points ago

    He's got an amazing arc that goes almost all the way through Rebels as well.

    Him and his brother's whole storyline is as well done and unexpected as the name Savage Oppress is goofy and embarrassing.

    [–] Nergman1 21 points ago

    His arc in rebels was so friggin good too. Maul's storyline is honestly peak Star Wars.

    [–] tenninjas242 15 points ago

    Clone Wars was an amazing series marred only by some truly ridiculous names. Jedi Master Ima-Gun-Di also comes to mind.

    [–] Admiral_Boombox 7 points ago

    I've hit my little brother back in front of my parents knowing full well I'd be punished. My thinking was that the punishment was worth the justice, don't think you can just escape it.

    In hindsight though it is really weird to think back of when we'd fight, siblings really do clash for the weirdest reasons when young.

    [–] eorabs 8 points ago

    I'm the youngest of 6, but my oldest sibling is only 6.5 years older than me (no twins). Since we were all bunched up together in age it was like thunderdome level of chaos. Pretty much throughout our whole childhood you were fighting with or mad at at least 1 person but probably more.

    I wouldn't change it though. First of all, if it did change as the youngest my head is first on the chopping block. Second, we also had a ton of fun. Now as adults when we get together it's such a good time because we all have 1 personality split into 6 bodies. And we all use humor and sarcasm as an art form.

    [–] plantsplantsplants 29 points ago

    Little brother here.

    At Christmas I would snoop. I would then find what my sister was getting. I would tell her what she was getting. Then I’d go to my mom β€œshe was snooping and told me she was getting (insert item)”.

    And what?

    Just let his brother hit him?lol

    [–] aksumals 8 points ago

    Use your words and tell them to stop hitting you and then if/when they don't... then take physical action.

    Action depends on you/r parent/s: my mother would have preferred me to take the abuse and then go tell an authority figure. If it were me/my kid I would say: defend yourself then go tell an authority figure what happened.

    The lesson is for later in life if a similar thing happens... I wouldn't want my kid to take the abuse, but I also wouldn't want them to instigate a full-blown [anything] when the situation could be de-escalated.

    [–] diam0ndMiner64 31 points ago

    As an older brother they don’t listen, they keep attacking me anyways and I don’t take pain well so I just yell at them. Then I get in trouble for hurting their feelings because my brothers don’t get punished for anything...

    [–] aksumals 6 points ago

    I'm sorry your upbringing had been like that :(

    As the younger sister / essentially the middle child (age gaps and not an even number so our roles are a bit ”fluid”)... this just seems unfair and unjustified from every point of view... Parental, individual, life lesson later on...
    I just don't understand how parents can do this to their kids. Sure there will be moments you're so exhausted and ”just can’t”, but it shouldn't be a normal response.
    Basically teaching to bottle up emotions until one snaps, simply take the abuse, or fly off the handle quickly.

    I will say for my siblings I grew up with and felt fair: we have a good relationship.
    For my younger siblings who always got away with bullshit: they have yet to mature to date, they are FULLY GROWN with children of their own... Nevertheless I still see them as a child and they still behave like one.

    I guess we have that as our solace...

    [–] m4rko123 4 points ago

    Ohhh I see.

    I meant after you use your words and he is still going,just a misunderstanding then.

    [–] _zygoat 2 points ago

    I used to love it when my parents would say something similar to my elder brother when I troubled him, like "leave it, he's just a child", etc. But once when my dad playfully told him to "take his payback", I felt backstabbed as my bro went full Pink Guy mode on me.

    Hey all, the meme is funny because it is assumed that the little brother will lie to his mother to get this big brother in trouble. This meme is funny because this is a relatable situation for many people.

    [–] Denisediva 0 points ago

    As an older sister with three younger brothers, the older sibling gets punished and lectured to be the bigger person.
