On December 18, Rodger Sherman, a sports writer for The Ringer, tweeted out a question which revealed a little-discussed aspect of college life: every college campus's tendency to paint its own squirrels as remarkable or special in some way.


Immediately, thousands of people flocked to the thread's comments section, telling stories of their college's squirrels.


It seems every squirrel is special in the eyes of its home university.


Many University Twitter accounts replied to the thread, making the case for why their squirrels were superior.



A few schools touted scientific statistics, saying the presence of black squirrels was truly unique!


Others simply couldn't stop themselves from replying, though they knew they were playing right into Sherman's hand.


The University of Rochester sadly has no squirrels...only "groundbois."

While some squirrels are adorable, it seems others can act downright dastardly.


Many Twitter users wrote posts defending college squirrel's honor!



Looking at some of the pictures posted by college students, no one can argue these squirrels aren't...a bit unusual.




It seems squirrels are cool no matter where they are! As Sherman sarcastically wrote after his thread went viral:

"Congrats to every college on having the only special squirrels in America, they are definitely not regular-a** squirrels"

Children tend to believe just about anything they hear.

That there are monsters under your bed, watching too much TV will make your head explode, and silly faces will be permanent if you make them too often.

The sky is truly the limit when it comes to silly things that children will believe.

Some call it naivitée, other's youthful innocence.

But it's hard not to look back with embarrassment on certain things we believed as a child, that today might simply seem dumb.

Redditor Disastrous_Toe_6548 was curious to learn the multitude of silly things people believed when they were children, leading them to ask:
