Shakantula Devi, popularly known as The Human Computer, can calculate complex math problems using only her mind. Her father discovered Devi's extraordinary talents when Devi was just three years old, while trying to teach her a card trick. In 1977, at Southern Methodist University, she was asked to give the 23rd root of a 201-digit number. At the time, a special computer program had to be written to perform such a large calculation alongside Devi. She answered (correctly) in 50 seconds. Devi has received no formal education.

7. SUPER VISION

Veronica Seider's ability to see with extraordinary acuity came to light while she attended university in Germany. To give you an idea of just how well Seider can see, picture this: If you have perfect vision (20/20), picture the level of detail you can see from 2 feet away. Seider can see this level of detail from 20 feet away. In fact, she can see detail up to 1 mile (5260 feet) away. Bet you she never gets lost in a crowd.

9. ECHOLOCATION

Ben Underwood could play basketball and football, ride a bicycle, and skateboard. The catch? Ben was blind. Diagnosed with retinal cancer at age two, Ben had his eyes removed, rendering him completely blind. At the age of five, he developed echolocation, and could detect the objects around him by clicking his tongue and listening for the echo.

10. THE HUMAN ANVIL

Gino Martino is a professional wrestler with a bizarre ability. He can smash through things with his skull. Gino has had cinder blocks jack-hammered off his head, bowling balls dropped on his head from heights up to 15 feet, and has used his forehead to drive spikes through 2x4s wrapped in sheet metal. Ferraro first discovered this ability as a teenager when he crashed head first through a large oak door.

It's highly believed that it is important to learn history as a means to improve our future.

What is often overlooked is that what is taught in history class is going to be very different depending on where you went to school.

This frequently results in our learning fascinating, heartbreaking and horrifying historical facts which our middle or high school history teachers neglected to teach us.

Redditor Acherontia_atropos91 was curious to learn things people either wished they had learned, or believe they should have learned, in their school history class, leading them to ask:

If only we could bring them back.

Redditor hetravelingsong wanted to discuss our new normal in this hopeful "endemic" phase. So they asked:

Is there a GOD in the sky?

What if they've been right all along?
