Top Ten Everyday Aspects of Life That Would Be Weird In a Backwards Universe

PositronWildhawk
Imagine these things acting where time runs backwards. They would certainly be bizarre.

The Top Ten

1 Pregnancy

This would be a tough ordeal for both child and parents. When the kid ages backwards, it shoves itself up into the mother, before the baby shrivels into nothing, and nine months later, or earlier, splits into a sperm and an egg, the former of which promptly shoots back up into the father. A backwards world would be odd. - PositronWildhawk

This doth fair maketh the eyes water..."It shoves itself up into the mother..." Such grace, such style...
This would be bizarre and extremely traumatic for all involved. Thank goodness this is impossible! - Britgirl

2 Money

Money would be avoided like the plague in a backwards universe, as when you buy things, you are in fact selling them, and vice versa. So throwing out your money would make you richer. But you'd also be unable to buy something unless you sell it. - PositronWildhawk

3 Education

When you graduate, you're basically confirming in a backwards universe that you don't need your knowledge anymore, and over your backwards courses, you lose it into thin air as your teachers teach it backwards. And you'd begin to lose your degrees as your exams are undone, until at the end of your life, or after your reverse education, you're no longer toilet trained. Horrific thought, right? - PositronWildhawk

So we may say here that this backward education's main aim would be how to make fools out of geniuses. The dumbest one would excel in academics. Sounds really crazy and weird and fun at the same time. - Kiteretsunu

4 Healthcare

But with Trump this is gonna change, isn't it? He wants to make America great " again "!

This can be a minor irritation, like a doctor taking your cough pills away while your throat feels like sandpaper; or it could be an immoral armaggedon, like it would be if surgeons were to implant a pus-filled appendix into you BEFORE applying anaestetic! - PositronWildhawk

5 Puberty

Would not like to have that happen backwards. - PositronWildhawk

That would be so awkward. - funnyuser

6 Memory

How would anyone live with memory capacity acting back through time? - PositronWildhawk

7 Invention

Objects from light bulbs to cars would simply disappear from existance. - PositronWildhawk

8 Menstruation

I don't know how it feels forwards, but I can imagine that backwards would be a lot worse. - PositronWildhawk

9 Crime

Criminals would put money into vaults and seal them up, or might suck knives and bullets out of corpses before they come to life. - PositronWildhawk

10 Digestion

You would have to sit on a toilet before crap rises from the drain and into you, which would materialise into pieces of food, which are fused together by your teeth before you pull it up your throat and out of your mouth. I think I'll pass. - PositronWildhawk

See this is why I like the world even with it's problems! Do you what would make me hate life? Having your poop being shoved up your butt every time you try to eat something! But where is the poop if it's not being sucked up yet? It's not in your rectum.
