"Dear Glasses-Wearers of reddit, what do people without glasses take for granted?" –– This was today's burning question from Redditor CuteAmbassador, and it's an interesting one because it's true! People who don't wear glasses really don't know how annoying it is to not be able to see properly. I can confirm: I wore glasses for 20 years and am now enjoying life as a member of the seeing populace. It's pretty stellar and is, more than anything, a great relief.


"Laying on the couch..."

Laying on the couch to watch tv without smashing glasses into your face.

"The fact that..."

The fact that when you wear glasses, you have two looks: with glasses, or without. If She's All That taught us anything, it's that the glasses are holding you back and as soon as you take them off and let your hair down you will immediately be transformed into the erotic goddess who was lurking inside you all along. Yeah, not so much.

There's occasionally that moment at the start of a relationship when they see you without your glasses on for the first time and realise that, rather than finding 1990s Rachael Leigh Cook under those lenses, they've actually shacked up with a squinty little mole-woman who's now pissed off she can't see anything.

"Not having..."

Not having your vision obscured by fog when going from a very cold to a very warm environment.

Condensation forms on your lenses and, in humid areas, can be really fucking annoying.

"Being able..."

Being able to watch your haircuts progress.

"Walking in the cold..."

Walking in the cold with their face covered and still being able to see.

"Not having to pay..."

Not having to pay to see.

"You don't need your glasses..."

You don't need your glasses to find your glasses when you lose your glasses. You may think Velma is funny with the "Oh no, my glasses" bit but it is so true.

"Not needing to..."

Not needing to wipe a piece of glass every few hours. Like how the hell do glasses get stains so quickly?

"Cooking."

Cooking -- checking a boiling pot to see how the noodles are softening up without steam covering my glasses and blocking my view.

"Swimming..."

Swimming and being able to see literally anything.

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.

U/Tynoa2 asked: What's your favourite historical fact?
