When the global pandemic hit in march of 2020, countless companies saw themselves going under.

Sadly, some companies, from a wide variety of businesses, simply couldn't adapt to working under the parameters of social distancing, or couldn't adapt in time, resulting in them permanently closing their doors.

Many people were sad to see these companies close, while many others were even sadder that some companies managed to pull through and stay open.

Indeed, long before Covid-19 wreaked havoc on the world, some companies and corporations people felt were actually detrimental to society would be doing the world a favor by going out of business.

Redditor param_T_extends_THOT was curious to find out which companies people fell into this less than prolific category, leading them to ask:

"Which company could go out of business tomorrow and it would be to the betterment of this world?"

Be it poor customer service, questionable business practices, or just plain fraud, it's hard not to agree that any or all of these companies would not be missed should they close their doors.

After all, when a health and wellness brand openly tells you that some or all of its products may not actually improve your health or wellness, that just about says it all.

Redditors know this all too well, and are sharing the worst relationship advice they've ever gotten.

It's easy to assume things about history since we weren't actually there. We're taught to believe everything we read, but often times, it takes more research to figure out the truth.

There are a lot of historical figures we believe were bad based on what we first read or heard. However, upon further research, we find out they weren't actually that bad.

Some of them got a bad reputation even though all they did was make a mistake. Others just weren't appreciated for their ideas and inventions during their own time. Some of them are even heroes!

It seems Redditors did some of that extra research and are ready to share their findings.
