Thursday afternoon, the city of London was enraptured by the antics of the daredevil rock climber known as the French Spider-Man. Alain Robert, a 56-year-old man known for ascending skyscrapers without the aid of safety equipment, illegally climbed to the top of the Salesforce Tower.

The climb took the better part of an hour, as onlookers below watched in anticipation. This isn't his first skyscraper ascent. Robert is known for his urban climbs. He began in the '90s climbing up buildings such as the Petronas Twin Towers in Malaysia and the Sears Tower in Chicago.

He often climbs without permission or permits, with no equipment outside of rock climbing shoes and chalk, and to a supportive and captivated crowd.


Not everyone is happy with his climb, however.

Upon reaching the top, Robert was arrested on suspicion of being a public nuisance. His manager, Bryan Yeubrey, was not surprised, stating, "Now he will be arrested and go to court. Hopefully they will not be too hard on him because actually he is a really good guy."

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.
