Finland is in dire need of Christmas elves. But, in lieu of the real thing, they'll settle for you, dressed like an elf, spreading yule-tide cheer in the months leading up to the big day. Lapland Safaris, a Finnish travel company, is looking to hire full-time elf impersonators to brighten people's moods during the Christmas season and, honestly, the gig sounds pretty perfect.


The job listing on Lapland's website informs readers:

An Elf is at the same time an entertainer, a guide and a mythical creature of Christmas.



Applicants should expect to become a "guide and mythical creature" from November 2018 to January 2019, starting with an intense elf-training session at the Arctic Hospitality Academy.

According to the application:

Training includes learning the required elfing and communication skills.

Surely no one with true Christmas spirit will be confused by that.



If Lapland choses you after the rigorous elven boot-camp, they will supply you with a shared apartment and a discount at all Lapland-owned stores and restaurants.



You may be wondering—what kind of events does an elf facilitate? Some of the classics include "skiing, ice fishing, snowmobiling, and Northern Lights-gazing."



Sound amazing yet? Well, there's one catch: it's gonna get cold.

Elves will get the chance to help pick their destination from a list of cities that includes "Saariselkä, Levi, Rovaniemi, Hetta, Olos, or Ylläs," but no matter where you end up, it's gonna be very VERY chilly.



If you want this job, you'd better apply quick because Twitter wants it very badly!

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.
