Same-sex couples dancing in music videos are typically no big deal in American media. P!nk's newest video, for the track Secrets, would hardly make waves in many places - but Turkey isn't one of them. Officials at the Turkish Radio And Television Supreme Council (RTUK) were so offended by the video that they're issuing fines to channels that play it.

Much of the world sees P!nk as the encouraging "cool mom" of music, but Turkish officials worry that she's potentially a bad influence on kids. The Council claims that the video features "erotic dance figures of a homosexual nature" and believes that young people could be confused and negatively influenced by the imagery. As punishment, the Council has fined at least one channel 17,000 Turkish lira. That converts to just over $2750.00 USD. The video features couples, some same sex, dancing against a graffiti wall. At some points, the dancers grind against one another and the male dancers are sometimes shirtless. P!nk, herself, dances with another woman while "pinned" to the wall.

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?

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.
