Sometimes we make decisions that seem hilarious in the moment but end up being not so cute in the real world.


That is exactly what happened when Reddit user bradimal decided that, when he got his new license in the state of Washington, he would sign his signature as three cat heads. Literally. He drew three cat heads and by some miracle it passed through the system and he received his license with the hysterical signature.

Things weren't as funny a few years later. Here's how it all went down:

"In 2015 I had to renew my license and thought it would be funny to do cat heads as my signature, so I did. For the past 3 years I just forgot about it unless I had to show my ID and they pointed it out. They would laugh and say, 'haha I can't believe they let you do that!' and I would be like, 'yeah, yeah, yeah, let me in the bar now.' I have always signed my name with my regular signature/scribble, not cat heads. This hasn't been a problem until today when I had to sign my mortgage papers. The signing agent looked at my ID and shook his head, he was not amused. I tried to explain that 2015 Brad never imagined he'd own a house. So the dude has to call the title company headquarters and explain the situation all while my real estate agent is laughing her ass off. I had to sign 3 cat heads over 30 times today. Here is pic http://imgur.com/I6olEcY and here is my ID http://imgur.com/xmOmU5n TL;DR had to sign all my mortgage papers with my legal ID signature, which is 3 cat heads."

The story made it across social media platforms.




People could relate.





Not everyone was buying the cat story.


We never thought about this.

Here's a thought.


Well, that's true.

But then, wasn't having fun what started this whole mess?

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?

Redditor u/Animeking1108 wanted to discuss how the education system has ideas that sometimes are just more a pain in the butt than a daily enhancement... What was the dumbest rule your school enforced?

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.
