Teachers are the sages we take for granted. They take little to no cash in order to shape the lives of children who do not share their DNA. And they do their duty with diligence and fortitude. Many teachers impart life wisdom in the simplest of ways and the simplest of sentences.

Redditor [aveconks][1] asked What is the most famous line of one of your teachers that you will never forget?_Take a minute and think back. You'll remember this person if you try hard enough. _


I don't know about most famous, but definitely my favorite was when some kids were describing the beginning of Skyrim to our Math Teacher.

Student: So it starts with you as a prisoner that is about to get executed, but just before they kill you a dragon shows up and starts destroying the city

Math Teacher: Oh, So kinda like Shrek?

Teacher puts on an orange hat. "This is my highlighter hat. If I am wearing it, what I'm saying is important."

And it was true, he would just randomly put it on mid lecture.

One day in an algebra class I had a cold, and the teacher offered me some tea to help. I politely refused, but then jokingly said, "back in the old days, they didn't have all these meds and teas to help, how did THEY deal with being sick?"

The teacher replied, "They didn't... they died."

I had some tea after that.

"If you are what you eat then I'm fast, cheap, and easy."

My general studies teacher used to say this all of the time. And it's pretty much the only thing I remember from her classes.

It was my senior year of high school and my girlfriend had recently broken up with me. The art teacher had told me _"Let it go little by little like small boats off to sea." _It withstood the test of time and I still remember it word for word almost a decade later.

During the midterm for my college geography course, our professor told us a joke to lighten the mood.

"If Russia invaded Turkey from the rear, would Greece help?"

Nothing lightens the mood more during a test than an sex joke.

"There will be nothing about enzymes in the test next week"

Next week stares at Q1-20 on the enzymes section of the test.

My legal writing professor, who had a reputation for being unreasonably demanding, said something along the lines of, I'm going to teach you how to do things the hard way, so it's even easier to do it the easy way. I feel bad for people who only learn how to do things the easy way because it will feel impossible to have to do it the hard way.

My grade 7 teacher told me this in response to the whole "Practice makes Perfect" statement. _"Practice makes better, nobody's perfect" _

My calc teacher in high school kept a list of places he would never go to ever again. Walmart was on it because he said they over priced eveyrthing. Burger King was on it because they moved their HQ to Canada to avoid taxes. By far the best one was 7-11. A 7-11 was build across the street from his favorite convenience store (can't remember the name) and to get to said store he'd have to do a u-turn before the intersection. However, since the 7-11 moved there a median was placed which didn't allow a u-turn. So, he'd have to now go around a block to get there, so he hated 7-11. About half a school year went by and he told us that 7-11 was off his list. Why? Because his wife bought him a banana slurpee. No joke he said this, "Hey class, 7-11 is off the list because of banana slurpees."

Don't worry, the worst thing that could happen is you survive and have to live in constant pain.

Advancements in science happen every day in every way.

But often it feels like we are still so far behind.

How have we not cured so many diseases?

Shouldn't we know more about space?

What is Jello really made of?

So much to ponder and understand.

Maybe one day.

We all have a bucket list of what we'd like to see cured or invented before our last breaths.

Let's discuss...

Redditor yoda2060wanted to discuss all the science that needs to be devoured before the sand runs out of the hourglass. They asked:

"What scientific achievement you would like to see before you die?"

Fast fashion is terrible for the environment, one of the largest polluters of clean water globally because of its all too common use of cheap, toxic textile dyes.

It also places producers under more and more pressure to manufacture more and more clothes on masse–the people working in the factories that make this stuff are being paid a pittance, contributing to much of the wealth inequality in less developed nations.

Additionally, it's estimated that the textiles industry produces 1.2 billion tonnes of CO2 per year and that just two percent of all fast fashion emissions can be reduced through recycling. Ouch. Time to change habits, right?

People shared their thoughts on this and other topics after Redditor urmomsucked asked the online community,

"What should people seriously stop buying?"

If you make too many funny faces, your face will stay that way permanently.

Watch too much tv and your eyes will fall out.

Break a mirror and it's seven years of bad luck.

These are among the many myths and superstitions we heard as children, more often than not from our parents and teachers as a way of scaring us into behaving.

But while there is not one ounce of truth to any of these tall tales, there are many who still believe them, and many more.

Redditor RedditPersonIf was curious to learn what superstitions people continue to believe are true, leading them to ask:

"What myths are obviously false, yet most people still believe they are true?"

Who hasn't looked at a scarf someone knitted for a loved one, a flawless homemade birthday cake, or an immaculately planted garden and thought, "I wish I could do that"?

But you'd never dare try to attempt it yourself, knowing that it's well beyond your personal skill set.

But is it?

Intimidating as they may seem, some skills might be deceptively easier than they appear to be, or might come more naturally to you than to many others.

Redditor halfmoon599 was curious to hear what skills people believed to be much easier than they seem, leading them to ask:

"What skill is actually easier to learn than what other people think?"
