Life is full of questions and theories. Often, big, unexplainable moments are shrouded in mystery. People tend to try and weave a tale that makes sense, even when there is already basic reasoning. What can I say....sometimes we're really bored.

Redditor u/thats_a_doozy wanted to hear what odd ideas some people are concocting by asking.... What's the goofiest conspiracy theory you've ever heard?


Who?

Giphy

That white people are really just Indian albinos that got expelled from India a long time ago and settled in Europe.

Lol, what? TehArtistwannabe

WOOF!!!

Dog food companies routinely breed large dogs and dump the puppies randomly all over the country. If they get adopted, that's a new customer. If they wind up in the shelter, they still gotta eat. LiquidSoCrates

Idk this one sounds dumb but sorta plausible. BattlefieldNiblet

Fake News?

That Clinton rigged the election so Trump would win, because Trump is a Democrat plant into the Republican Party so the Democrats could actually be in control.

Because if you had the power to do that you couldn't just... rig it so you can win. BattlefieldNiblet

I heard the theory that they were in it together and than Trump was a puppet to make it really easy for Hilary to win and for him to promote his show, but then he unexpectedly went and won. argielurker

Breathe Deep. 

Oxygen is actually a hallucinogen and drugs like mushrooms are what reality actually looks like and are the only cure. jerrythecactus

Someone came up with this while on mushrooms. PaterMcKinley

Darth Moon....

The moon is a death star. This was the explanation: The astronauts heard a bell when they landed, thats it. OnwardFerret94

That the moon is a hologram. Ithasbegunagain

Hollow....

Hollow Earth. I had an old coworker explain his ideas on it to me one time and I had to bite my tongue and cheeks so I could let him finish without laughing. He thought there was an ancient race inside the planet. One day we're supposedly all going on boats to some hole in some ocean and we'll just kinda pop in the other side and gravity will still work and there will be ambient light. Dude was smart otherwise so I figured he took too much acid back in the day. He also would also randomly show me drawings for his perpetual motion machines. mercurus_

Drowning....

The coolest one I've heard of was that the Titanic never sunk, but its sister ship the Olympic was intentionally sank for insurance reasons, but then they botched the rescue so people ended up dying. Theres a pretty cool documentary on youtube about it. MasterChiefsUNSC

I Love Trees. 

That trees aren't real. The things we identify as trees are actually mediocre copies of real trees. Mesas are not geological features but the fossilized stumps of real trees. Why the giant real trees were eradicated in favor of the smaller, crappier copies isn't made clear. EuroLitmus

Ask Jackie. 

I worked with a guy who swore that the guy who was driving President Kennedy in Dallas turned around in the driver's seat and shot him point blank. He said all you had to do was watch the tape and it was plain as day. Stimperonovitch

I saw this documentary that I am 90% sure was completely crap. But there's that's 10% of me that's almost sort of convinced

Basically the theory goes the squad sniper was incredibly drunk the day JFK was driving around in that town and the assassin shot but missed hitting the car or something so then the squad sniper grabs his rifle spins around accidentally shoots JFK in the head.

And like I'm a good 90% sure it's crap but the documentary was really convincing and now I'm not even sure and it's freaking me out because I'm not even sure if I believe in this weird conspiracy theory I don't know what's going on anymore the moon is a hologram the Earth is fake and hollow Mars is flat Jupiter's actually 2 meters wide the lizard people control my local council immigration happens because of the central American banana companies nothing is real everything is fake and we all die eventually.

Pizza Yum.

Giphy

That Shane Dawson thing where he showed Chuck E Cheese Pizza is made up of salvaged slices of used pizza

I mean, when the pizza came to the table I laughed out loud. WiseWordsFromBrett

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?
