A new billboard went up in Times Square and it has people talking. In big black letters, the sign proclaims, "NO GAYS ALLOWED."


If the sign seems shocking, that is the point! Under the larger letters, a message reads "STOP Alliance Defending Freedom. Learn more at NoGays.org."

The goal is to shine a spotlight on the conservative Christian legal group Alliance Defending Freedom, or ADF which the Southern Poverty Law Center describes as a hate group against the LGBTQ community.

The ADF encourages businesses to deny service to LGBTQ people and criminalize homosexuality. If that seems ridiculous in this day and age, consider a hardware store in Tennessee, Amyx Hardware & Roofing Supplies in Grainger County, which hung a "No Gays Allowed" sign in their front window.

A spokesperson for Citizens for Transparency, Caleb Cade, told NBC News:

"ADF has been leading that war for a long time, with tens of millions of dollars to do it."

The nogaysallowed.org also has an informational video.

If we don't stay vigilant, this could be a glimpse into the future but people are conflicted about the message.











If the goal was to get people talking, it's working.

There are few things more satisfying than a crisp $20 bill. Well, maybe a crisp $100 bill.

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.
