Thanksgiving is near at hand, which means many young people will be preparing one of the year's biggest meals away from their parents, perhaps even for the first time.

Thankfully, moms are always there for us, even when our knowledge is noticeably lacking...

Perhaps our mother's willingness to help make a good dinner at all costs is what makes this next prank so funny.

All over the nation, kids are trolling their moms by texting and asking how long to cook their thanksgiving turkey in the microwave.



The mothers' reactions were priceless.



Some mothers just told their children to keep it simple.



You can hear the disappointment in these mother's texts...


This mother immediately jumped to Defcon 5.



Some children lost their turkey privileges.


There were also a couple moms who knew their children well enough to roll with the punches.

Twitter was laughing their heads off at each mom's reaction.

Don't worry, mothers—we know our stuff!

Well, at least most of us do.

Some, some of us...what's the number for the Butterball Hotline?

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.

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.
