Kids not only SAY the darndest things, but they also BELIEVE the darndest things. Like seriously, did anyone EVER actually believe in the Easter Bunny? That one's definitely not real, unlike Santa. Santa is totally real and you can't change my mind.

u/Drakonish asked: What's the stupidest thing you believed as a child?



Story checks out.

That brown cows made chocolate milk and black cows produced coffee. The more white a brown/black patched cow was, the more milk in the chocolate milk/coffee.

I actually believed this one too. Glad I'm not the only one!

Drakonish

True facts.

Giphy

Narwhals were a mythical creature like unicorns.

Upon further investigation at 11, they're real.

Am adult. Can confirm.

That adults know everything.

True, I clearly remember looking at family friends, teachers, etc thinking how serious and trustable they were. Analyzing now the behaviour of a good percentage of them is kind of sad. Especially regarding my parents.

castigamat

Um......what?

That pepper made food hot and salt cooled it down.

No idea where I got this from but it did lead to me not wanting to eat a lot of diners cause I put to much salt on them.

UltraNachos

Well, technically, you're not wrong...

Automation_Junkie

I mean, you could, it would just cost a lot.

I thought that once we grew up, we could decide what we looked like. I wanted to look like Selena- man was I disappointed when I learned I would be stuck with my face my whole life.

Well if you bring 1000 gold to the Thieves' Guild...

So innocent, so stupid.

Kids are born just due to adults getting married.

My wife often tells a story about how she thought women got pregnant when they put a wedding ring on. She once told a lady it was impossible for her unmarried daughter to be pregnant without a wedding ring. She probably sounded so pretentious.

I STILL believe this.

I believed that inanimate objects had feelings for WAY longer than I should have. I didn't wanna be "mean" to them, lol

I used to make sure all my stuffed animals were tucked into bed with me because I didn't want to hurt anyone's feelings for having a favorite doll and bear. I did that until I was almost 12....

Wait....they don't????

Women give birth through their bellybutton.

Hey, it is a hole in the stomach. I knew it had something to do with babies. If you think this is crazy, my twin brother thought you gave birth through your mouth when at first.

It's amazing what CGI can do these days.

I believed that actors would dress up as cartoon characters to film cartoons

MouseDonut

This is like, a universal belief of kids.

That it was illegal to turn on the interior lights of a car in the dark.

There was definitely some adult/parental influence to this notion.

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?
