This is the brilliant note a sassy seven-year-old schoolgirl left for her dad in her lunchbox – telling him "I not etting my sandwish because I hate hummas."

Pete Simson, 37, asked his daughter Pearl, seven, what she thought about her packed lunch that day, once she had returned home from school.

She told him she'd left a note in her lunchbox - and he thought it might be a cute thank you note, or a lovely drawing.

He was left laughing when he found a note addressed to "DAD" which said "I NOT Etting my sandwish because I hate hummas."

Proud dad Pete, from Bristol, England, said:

"Well clearly, she wasn't a fan on the sandwich I made her! This was after school this week."
"I asked her if she liked her packed lunch and she told me there was a note in the lunchbox!"
"I thought it might be a thank you or something but as soon as I saw the disheveled sarnie in there I knew something was amiss."

"The dark brown pencil it was written with should have been a clue, it was a foreboding color. I was both amused and horrified."
"Amused because she'd gone to the trouble to write it and the cute spelling, but also horrified 'cos she must have been Hank Marvin (rhyming slang for 'starving')."
"This is a very Pearl thing to do - she is what a casual observer might describe as 'sassy.'"

He joked:

"To her mother it's the sign of a strong woman but to me it's plain insolence. I should add my own mother made the worst sandwiches on crumbly bread when I was a kid, but I made damn sure I ate them."
"I suppose it's nice I'm following in a family tradition. Pearl also HATES sourdough, with that and the “hummas" she'll never be a middle-class icon."

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.
