Irritated People Share The Biggest Unresolved Scandals The World's Forgotten

Everyone loves a good, juicy scandal; especially if it doesn't involve us personally. This way we can just watch and comment from afar. Life is fraught with scandal. You don't have to be a person of notoriety either but it's the scandals that reach the public spotlight we can't help but be addicted to. Every year there is some twisted event that has more twists and turns than an Agatha Christie novel. And half the time what ends up most aggravating is the never ending cliffhanger!

Redditor \EyYoDasGayMane was dying to know... What is the biggest unresolved scandal the world collectively forgot about? O.J? JonBenet? Russia?! We may never know.

GET THAT CREDIT IN CHECK...

Equifax lost the personal data of almost every single adult. This is data we didn't give them permission to access.

They are still in business.

SHOW ME THE $$$!!!

About 10 years ago two men with Japanese passports were caught trying to smuggle $134 billion in forged bearer bonds into Switzerland in the trunk of their car! They were caught by Italian police and we still don't know anything about who they were, where the bonds came from or why they were being smuggled.

WHERE IS THE JUSTICE BAYER?

The pharmaceutical giant Bayer sold a drug for hemophiliacs that ended being contaminated with HIV. Once learning of the contamination, instead of ceasing sales entirely, the company choose to only discontinue the drug in the US (where the evidence of the contamination and associated deaths had come from) and proceeded to market the product in Asia and Latin America. Many patients contracted HIV and ultimately died of AIDS because of this decision. To my knowledge, no one from Bayer has ever been prosecuted.

TRILLIONS OF QUESTIONS....

Paradise papers!!! Trillions of dollars. All over the news for a couple of days, then nothing. Haven't heard a peep about it since.

SPEAK UP TOM CRUISE!!

All deaths related to Scientology.

THAT'S WHY I TAKE ADVIL...

The 1982 Tylenol Cyanide poisonings that killed several innocent consumers and put manufacturer Johnson & Johnson in crisis mode. Their handling of the aftermath is considered a textbook example of competent crisis management. It led to the market introduction of a wide array of safety packaging. No arrests ever made.

THEM & RUSSIA...

ISIS buying Twitter ads.

rConspiracyIs4Shills

ISIS is still rather active on Twitter.

Just check the replies to tweets by Iraqi agencies (government, army, football, etc.). Scary amount of ISIS propaganda.

How does that happen? Does some terrorist all call Twitter and be like, yeah I'm a jihadist and I'd like to place an ad for new jihadists. And Twitter is all, please hold for the sales department.... WTF????

YOU'RE SHADY AMERICA...

When the American government paid internet companies to install internet all over the country in the 90s or something and they didn't actually do it all. Nobody really remembers it but it was one of the biggest scandals America has ever seen. Sorry for incorrectly spelling I'm bad and lazy. Also I totally forget what it was called. I'd love if someone remembered.

WHERE ARE THE GIRLS?!

What happened with the "Save our girls" thing? The African warlord kidnapping schoolgirls for, I forget what. He also did the comical thing about cleaning this teeth with some kind of stick on videos.

Also did Sean Hannity ever get waterboarded for charity?

The Boko Haram/Chibok schoolgirls kidnapping. 276 abducted, 112 still missing. A little over a hundred have been released, many probably dead.

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.

U/Tynoa2 asked: What's your favourite historical fact?
