When the 2017 adaption of Stephen King's It was released, it quickly became a smash hit.


The movie breathed new life into the classic story, taking a different approach to the book and the 1990 miniseries. Instead of alternating between the characters as children and adults, the movie focused on the adventure of the kids only.

The film brought the chills, the scares, and most importantly, the memes:

This is somehow both hilarious and terrifying at the same time.Giphy

It's only natural that fans would be excited for the next film, which will focus on the adult story. In the two years since, the adult cast has been announced with the child actors even meeting their future selves.

Everything was in place.

Then Stephen King set the mood.





Thursday finally came, but the trailer wasn't released right away. Instead, we got a teaser for the teaser.

Several media companies received an unexpected package in the mail. The boxes were shipped by DHL and appeared unexpectedly light.

Almost like they could float.





The boxes each had two red balloons filled with helium. Upon opening the box, the balloons would fly out, startling the opener.

These are a reference to the creature from the movies the kids know as Pennywise the Dancing Clown. The titular It would use these balloons to lure children, announce his presence, or inspire fear.

And I'd say they got the same reaction in real life.





Considering how scary the first movie was, this kind of extra tension was probably unnecessary.

Shortly after these videos were shared, the first trailer for It: Chapter 2 was released. It has received praise, with many talking about how excited they are for the new film.

But there is only one deep cut that will make some of us happy.



It: Chapter 2 will be released on September 6 of this year. It stars James McAvoy, Jessica Chastain, Bill Hader and Isaiah Mustafa.

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.
