She's 16 years old. She's from Sweden.

She's got 187,000 followers on Twitter.

She's leading the movement against climate change and her name is Greta Thunberg.


Her fight against climate change began last summer when she began protesting alone outside of the Swedish government until they joined the Paris agreement.

Since then she has inspired students just like herself to join the fight to save the planet. Student-based protests have broken out in Australia, Belgium, Germany, America, Japan and most notably the UK, all thanks to Greta.

More and more people are listening to her message. In fact, her Twitter following shows just how much influence she has.

At 187,000 followers, she has more followers than Green Party leaders Jonathan Bartley and Sian Berry combined. Not only that, she's rapidly approaching the same amount of followers as the Green Party itself.

Greta has Aspergers and selective mutism, but she has not allowed either of those things to stop her from speaking out.

In fact, it is her choice of words that resonate so powerfully with so many.

In a recent speech, when addressing the idea that adults want to give children hope, she stated:

"I don't want your hope. I don't want you to be hopeful. I want you to panic. And act as if our house is on fire. Because it is."

People are in awe of the young woman's passion and fortitude.










Greta has her next global mobilization planned for March 15th.

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.
