Meet your new mayor.

The town of Fair Haven, Vermont, has sworn in its honorary mayor––a three-year-old goat named Lincoln.

According to town manager, Joseph Gunter, the "position" of pet mayor was conceived as a fundraiser for a playground and evolved into an opportunity to impart a knowledge of civics to young children.

Lincoln was fitted with his very own mayoral sash when his handlers took him to the town hall for his swearing in. Town Clerk Suzanne Dechame and the select board were on hand to deliver the oath of office.

Oh, and Lincoln defecated on the floor during the ceremony, which is peak 2019.

That's a rather bold move immediately after taking office, and clean-up was left to the police chief and other attendees.

Goat starts term as pet mayor

Lincoln's already ignited quite the conversation on social media.

Again, this is peak 2019, ya'll.

No context is the best context.

We see what you did there.

Goats for America!

Oh, gurl. You dodged a bullet, didn't you?

Don't be hatin'.

We wish Lincoln well as he serves the rest of his term, and unlike his famous namesake, we hope he avoids theaters in the near future.

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.
