There are many theories about the realities of our existence. We can all agree that our actions have consequences. But taking this to the next level is one simple way of trying to understand the concept of the "Butterfly Effect." Discourse about the concept started 45 years ago, as per American Scientist, when Edward Lorenz asked at the 139th meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science: “Does the flap of a butterfly’s wings in Brazil set off a tornado in Texas?” It soon became a part of popular culture as the 2004 movie by the same name gave us a mind-bending experience.

In our day-to-day life, however, this translates to something less dramatic but still consequential. One small incident snowballs into a major life event. It's always interesting to look at the moment when your life changed drastically. One Reddit user wanted to know about the "real-life 'butterfly effect' stories, what happened and what was the series of events and outcomes?" The stories range from hilarious to outrageous.
