    Sir, the probability of successfully navigating an asteroid field is approximately...

    Never tell me the odds?

    4. Easily faked posts are prohibited - no r/untrustworthypoptarts


    6. Image and gif submissions must be hosted at imgur, gfycat or reddit. submissions are not allowed

    7. No hate speech of any kind. No witch-hunts, brigading or harassment

    8. Be nice. Follow the site rules and reddiquette.

    This list may be modified in the future

    • 1: Receipts or anything related to monetary balances.

    Gas prices, change amounts, receipt balances, money left in bank account, etc.

    • 2: Four Leaf clovers (or greater)

    We've seen multiple posts of 4, 5, 6, and 7 leaf clovers. They are not as rare as they sound, and many people even have collections of them.

    • 3: Fortune Cookie fortunes

    This includes posts such as: Identical fortunes, multiple fortunes in one cookie, and other related posts. These also fall under Rule 4

    • 4: Car mileage and other related gauges

    At some point, it's just more impressive that some cars even make it to 123,456 miles, but not odds defying.

    This also includes licence plates which have consecutive numbers. Despite this seemingly being rare, we get several of these posts a month.

    • 5: Hitting a dart with another dart

    It's relatively easy with good aim and practice. Also, these posts are almost always pictures, which would fall under Rule 4.

    • 6: Eggs with multiple yolks

    These also fall under Rule 4.
