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"

There are few things more satisfying than a crisp $20 bill. Well, maybe a crisp $100 bill.

But twenty big ones can get you pretty far nonetheless.

Whether it's tucked firmly in a birthday card, passing from hand to hand after a knee-jerk sports bet, or going toward a useful tool, the old twenty dollar bill has been used for countless purposes.

I realize that school safety has been severely compromised and has been under dire scrutiny over the past decade and of course, it should be. And when I was a student, my safety was one of my greatest priorities but, some implemented rules under the guise of "safety" were and are... just plain ludicrous. Like who thinks up some of these ideas?

One of the golden rules of life? Doctors are merely human. They don't know everything and they make mistakes. That is why you always want to get another opinion. Things are constantly missed. That doesn't mean docs don't know what they're doing, they just aren't infallible. So make sure to ask questions, lots of them.

Redditor u/Gorgon_the_Dragon wanted to hear from doctors about why it is imperative we always get second and maybe third opinions by asking... Doctors of Reddit, what was the worse thing you've seen for a patient that another Doctor overlooked?

When we think about learning history, our first thought is usually sitting in our high school history class (or AP World History class if you're a nerd like me) being bored out of our minds. Unless again, you're a huge freaking nerd like me. But I think we all have the memory of the moment where we realized learning about history was kinda cool. And they usually start from one weird fact.

Here are a few examples of turning points in learning about history, straight from the keyboards of the people at AskReddit.
