We can all generally agree laws are there to protect us. After all, no one would enjoy being murdered, having their stuff stolen out of their car, or getting smacked around like professional wrestlers. Not all laws are great, though, and not everything is outlawed that should be. That's right. We're calling you out, people that won't get off their phone when ordering food in line.


Reddit user, u/JasonBeKillin, wanted your opinion on what should be against the law when they asked:

what's something you wish was illegal?

How Is This Still Happening?

Robo-calling

DangerouslyDia

Opened comments to type exactly that answer. So infuriating.

Apparently the FBI and IRS are very interested in speaking with me...from their Nigerian office.

Wasting All That Digital Ink

All the spam mail in my mail box. I don't like that some of the most import documents in my life come via usps and in that same box is 5 different pieces of mail that are spam and 15 that are ads for sh-t I'd never buy.

Pay All The Time

Salary employment where they 'expect' you to work an extra 5 to 20 hours a week every week.

"70% Off...$500..."

You know those ads on the internet that say there's a store clearance sale and everything is 70% off but when you follow the link the shirts are like $60,it's like "You mean to tell me the regular price for this shirt is $200?!"

That.

"I Decided To Treat Myself Today To [insert product name]"

Celebrities endorsing stuff lying about how the product was effective for them!

"Just Bring In 7 People..."

MLM businesses

Pyramid and Ponzi schemes are illegal, but MLMs have managed to slip through a loophole even though they're basically the same thing

We Have No Idea How To Handle It

Those mycleanpc.com scams.

It doesn't do anything to your computer at all but slow it down and do a fake scan. How can blatantly lying about your product be legal to advertise?

Lots of people confuse "illegal" with "can be stopped by current law enforcement techniques."

"You're Full-Time At 32 Hours A Week"

Cutting employee hours to avoid giving full-time benefits/pay.

"I Chose This Life For Myself. I Promise."

Beauty Pageants for Children.

I'm so happy to know I'm not the only one who thought "Toddlers in Tiaras" was the most disturbing thing to ever be on television.

Ugh...The Worst

Bright a-- blue headlights, my night vision isn't great to begin with but once I have one of those

A: "Herp de derp look at how boss my truck is!" people or B: Fast and the Furious wannabees, with those f-cking things and they start reflecting off my mirrors and glasses I cant see sh-t.

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?
