Kate Middleton has been on maternity leave since April. During her first public appearance since giving birth to son Louis, for an event known as a "mini beast hunt" at St. Stephen's School in London, a little girl asked Middleton, "Why are they picturing you?" The Duchess knew exactly what to say.


Most of the children were stunned by Middleton's presence, but one curious girl was far more interested in the fleet of photographers who seemed to follower her around.

When she asked the Duchess what all the hubbub was about, Middleton responded:

They're picturing you cause you're special!



Kate's outing with the children was chock-full of adorable moments.

While the Duchess sat with a group of youngsters on a log, one girl demonstrated her finest royal manners by showing her how to properly drink from a cup with no hands.

Zoe Stroud, who hosted the mini beast hunt as interim Head of Sayers Croft Forest School, commented that Kate "was lovely" –– though she said the only mini beast she managed to find on the hunt was a slug! (But she did see a frog under a log.)

Twitter was excited to see Middleton back from leave!




Middleton's failure to find a nice spider was surprising considering her adventures with children George and Charlotte in their backyard!

According to Stroud:

She really gets what we are doing here and said she often takes her children on spider hunts in their garden, which they love. They can spend hours out there.

Our apologies, Duchess. Maybe you'll find a better "beast" next time around!

"Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the hottest and dumbest of them all?"

I know that is not verbatim the original quote, but it is close to the original.

Brains and beauty are always intertwined.

So often people confess about wanting to be more of the other.

No one is ever happy where they are. Why are we like that?

If given a chance, like a Disney movie, how do you trade?

Is it superficial to want looks over knowledge? Or vice versa?

Let's get deep....

Redditor BroodyBatman wanted to know who was willing to give up a little bit of brains for a whole lot of beauty, so they asked:

"Would you give up 15-20 IQ points to be really, REALLY ridiculously good looking? Why?"

The world is not so big a place, is it?

While we like to think of ourselves as isolated in this billion plus planet, there can be a lot more crossover than we think. We call these instances coincidences, hoping to find the right word to explain what happens when a one-in-a-million chance occurs.

If there's over seven billion plus people in the world, turns out you can run into these 'coincidences' more often than you think.

Let me make a quick point about conspiracy theories: Do people understand just how difficult it is for many of the conspiracies they claim to believe in to come to fruition? We're talking global levels of cooperation here, by the way, and it's clear the world can't even get itself out of a pandemic sooo...

But thankfully, there are some more innocent comnspiracies out there. For example, a former classmate once told me that he was convinced he couldn't remember all the items on his shopping list because of shopping elves distracting him to buy other things he didn't exactly need.

To be fair, he was a little stoned at the time and I told him he might want to consider just writing and referring to a shopping list.

People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor ConcentrateNext1734 asked the online community,

"What’s a conspiracy that you believe, but the majority of people don’t believe or know about?"

Children are very impressionable. They're also little humans, remember, and all quite different. Some are more afraid of some things than others. When I was a kid, some of my classmates were utterly terrified of Chucky, the killer doll.

I think he worked the best in the first film and to a larger extent in the second, but after that? Those movies got a bit ridiculous, wouldn't you agree?

Well, the memories linger, as you can imagine.

People took us on a trip down memory lane after Redditor teacatpeng asked the online community,

"What’s something you saw (as a kid) that gave you nightmares for a long time?"
