In war-torn regions or during medical emergencies, the metallic tang of blood fills the air, a stark reminder of human vulnerability and the fragility of life.

A user says, “The smell of someone bleeding out – unless you’re in the medical field or a serial killer. Blood in large quantities has an overwhelming, nauseating metallic smell.”

Away from the cacophony of urban life, a profound silence descends, broken only by the whispers of wind and the chirping of birds. This transformative experience is a rare luxury in our modern world.

A user said, “Absolute silence in nature. Two years ago, I stopped to fix my glove on a mountain while skiing. Everyone else had gone down by the time I was done, and the total silence of everything hit. There was no wind or other voices, and I couldn’t see anything man-made because it was a near white-out. Just me, the snow, and the shapes of the trees.”

In a crowded club, a random stranger sings along to your original song, creating a moment of unexpected connection and shared passion. This is a testament to the power of music to bridge the gap between individuals.

A user said, “A stranger coming to see you perform music and knowing the words to your song. It was wild waking up to this kind of response. Incredibly, so many people have experienced this from both sides of the fence. Thanks for the gold, stranger! I saw the notification and realized my coffee maker was overflowing, and I could not find it again to give a proper shout-out.”

A user said, “When I was a kid, I went to a friend’s house for dinner. Her dad was a neurosurgeon. He was talking about an operation he did that day, and I remember being so horrified. I was sitting at a table with a guy who, a few hours before, cut the top off someone’s skull and fiddled with their brains! I’ll never forget that creepy feeling of realizing what doctors do.”

For those living with chronic pain, the simple joy of moving freely and living without constant discomfort is an unimaginable luxury.

A user said, “If I’m interpreting “regular people” correctly, from my perspective – I see “regular people” as people who don’t have a chronic pain condition. The sensation that is a pain-free day or even a moment is like my whole body gets a vacation, a summer day, joy. Regular people take painlessness for granted.”
