So many fictional couples end up in tragedy, it's almost hard to keep track. But many shouldn't have gotten together in the first place.


Take Romeo & Juliet, for example - two teenagers who killed themselves because their parents disapproved of their relationship. Really? Go on Maury. Or Anakin Skywalker and Padme Amidallah - they had to have known it wasn't going to end well.

We know which one wears the pants.

Giphy

And once you acquire certain things mentally, you regret it.

How much 411 have you come across over time that made you think... "How can I unlearn that?"

Yeah, not possible.

Knowledge is power and sometimes it's a nightmare.

Don't we have enough to keep us up at night?

The truth matters.

Something one would think was a given in modern society.

Yet all over the world, there are people so unbelievably stubborn, that they simply refuse to believe the facts.

Sometimes even when presented with evidence.
