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."

The truth matters.

Something one would think was a given in modern society.

Yet all over the world, there are people so unbelievably stubborn, that they simply refuse to believe the facts.

Sometimes even when presented with evidence.

This could be for something menial, such as refusing to believe that a cotton candy was actually invented by a dentist.

But sometimes, refusing to believe the truth could have serious consequences, up to and including climate change, the effectiveness of masks, and the disproportionate amount of gun violence in the US.

Redditor Lady_Of_The_Water was curious about the many things, both frivolous and serious, people refused to believe were true, leading them to ask:

"Whats something someone thought you were wrong about and ridiculed you for it, but it turns out you were right?"
