Most people want to leave their mark on the world.

The best way is probably to accomplish historically significant things.

But we can't all be famous—or infamous.

There's one opportunity for all of us though to leave a lasting impression by crafting a clever epitaph for our eternal resting place.

Adults Explain Which Things Every Teenager Should Know

We often look back on our teenage years with mixed emotions.

Our final years where we could enjoy our youth, and live largely without responsibility and just enjoy being a child and all that came with it.

Of course, we might also look back on things we did as teenagers which we are less than proud of today.

Or things we wish someone had told us, so that we may have avoided falling into those unhappy situations.

We all pretended to be sick at least once when we were children to get out of going to school to avoid a test, game, or assembly we'd been dreading.

Some people still might not have given up the habit of feigning illness, as a means of avoiding work or other occasions that they are less than eager to attend.

Sometimes, simply telling people that you're "sick" is all the information you need to share to get out of it.

Non-disclosure agreements, or NDAs, are legally binding contracts that establish confidential relationships.

For most people, it’s not a big deal. NDAs are often signed at the start or end of an employment opportunity or during a sale of a product or technology you own. They mainly protect creative, business, or intellectual properties.

However, another function of NDAs is to guarantee silence on more high profile or nefarious events. For example, Stormy Daniels was asked to sign an NDA so that events that transpired between her and former president, Donald Trump, would be kept a secret. In most cases like these, the person who signs the NDA also gets a sum of money for their cooperation.

In these cases, the reason for the NDA is usually wild.
