"You're a mad scientist, what scientific experiment would you run if money and ethics weren't an issue?" –– This was today's burning question from Redditor Juco6954-, who showed us that there are truly some mad scientists among us!


"I'd restart..."

I'd restart Project Orion because spaceships propelled by nuclear explosions are awesome.

"If you're a mad scientist..."

Transferring minds to new bodies, with a goal of eventually ditching my old body before it dies of something or other.

If you're a mad scientist with infinite resources and your first goal isn't personal immortality, you're bringing shame to the name of mad scientists everywhere.

"I would..."

Giphy

I would want to see how a real life Hunger Games scenario and government like in the books works in real life.

"Kill all the power..."

Kill all the power to a major city like New York for an extended period of time to see how tribes form.

"Observe and learn..."

Raise a group of children from birth onwards and raise them without talking to them or have them hear any human language.

Observe and learn how and if they will develop a form of verbal communication.

"If I taught a monkey..."

If I taught a monkey how to operate and maintain a gun, then dropped him in a habitat of other monkeys and hidden gun caches, will he teach them how to use guns as well?

"Try and find a way..."

Try and find a way to make clean energy from giving people an endless supply of cocaine and putting them in a hamster wheel.

"Pay people..."

Pay people for a sleep study promising to help with their insomnia.

Lock them in a padded room and test how many times a person can listen to Baby Shark before they lose their minds.

"How many people..."

How many people can you peer pressure into joining a cult, and if this peer pressure cult could run on its own. Also, how would they go about sacrificing the weakest member.

"A metric ton..."

A metric ton of cancer research,

Anything and everything. Worked on rats? Straight to humans.

If it cures cancer in the end, f--- the lives lost. It's saving more.

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?
