We're all not geniuses.

Everybody has varying degrees of knowledge and brain power.

And that is ok.

Though some of us are really lacking in any sense and every once and awhile people like to sugarcoat that fact when they call us out.

"Bless your heart."

That's a big one in the South. Means... "I like you, but Lord are you missing marbles."


RedditorMrMadJokerwanted to know the most creative ways to describe people who lack a few IQ points.

They asked:

"What's your favorite euphemism for a dumb person?"

"You're missing a few pieces of the puzzle."

Said to me from my Geometry teacher. Now I know what he meant.

And... he was right.

Advancements in science happen every day in every way.

But often it feels like we are still so far behind.

How have we not cured so many diseases?

Shouldn't we know more about space?

What is Jello really made of?

So much to ponder and understand.

Maybe one day.

We all have a bucket list of what we'd like to see cured or invented before our last breaths.

Let's discuss...

Redditor yoda2060wanted to discuss all the science that needs to be devoured before the sand runs out of the hourglass. They asked:

"What scientific achievement you would like to see before you die?"

Fast fashion is terrible for the environment, one of the largest polluters of clean water globally because of its all too common use of cheap, toxic textile dyes.

It also places producers under more and more pressure to manufacture more and more clothes on massethe people working in the factories that make this stuff are being paid a pittance, contributing to much of the wealth inequality in less developed nations.

Additionally, it's estimated that the textiles industry produces 1.2 billion tonnes of CO2 per year and that just two percent of all fast fashion emissions can be reduced through recycling. Ouch. Time to change habits, right?

People shared their thoughts on this and other topics after Redditor urmomsucked asked the online community,

If you make too many funny faces, your face will stay that way permanently.

Watch too much tv and your eyes will fall out.

Break a mirror and it's seven years of bad luck.

These are among the many myths and superstitions we heard as children, more often than not from our parents and teachers as a way of scaring us into behaving.

But while there is not one ounce of truth to any of these tall tales, there are many who still believe them, and many more.

Redditor RedditPersonIf was curious to learn what superstitions people continue to believe are true, leading them to ask:

"What myths are obviously false, yet most people still believe they are true?"

Who hasn't looked at a scarf someone knitted for a loved one, a flawless homemade birthday cake, or an immaculately planted garden and thought, "I wish I could do that"?

But you'd never dare try to attempt it yourself, knowing that it's well beyond your personal skill set.

But is it?

Intimidating as they may seem, some skills might be deceptively easier than they appear to be, or might come more naturally to you than to many others.

Redditor halfmoon599 was curious to hear what skills people believed to be much easier than they seem, leading them to ask:

"What skill is actually easier to learn than what other people think?"
