Not all babies are created equal, as we learned when Redditor amazinghunter495 asked the online community: "What's the best way to tell someone their baby is ugly?"


"When my little sister..."

Giphy

When my little sister was a baby, she had quite an ugly face. My grandparents thought as much so instead of calling her a "pretty baby" or a "cute baby", they called her a "nice baby" because apparently she smiled a lot.

Moral of the story: whenever you see an ugly baby, but you don't want to make the parents feel too bad about it, call it a nice baby.

"I had friends..."

I had friends who definitely had an unattractive baby. He would get called "precious" a lot, but never "cute," "handsome," or "adorable" like other babies. That's how they knew he was ugly.

"He looks..."

He looks like Caillou.

"Your offspring..."

Your offspring is off-putting.

"When my child..."

When my child was an infant, we were having dinner at a pizza place and he was in his baby seat. The server eventually took notice and said. "Aww he looks just like you. Is he yours?" I replied, "No. I thought he looked like me too, so I took him." She didn't make much conversation after that.

"Our baby..."

Giphy

Will look out for this. Our baby is 2 days old and looks like a 40 year old accountant. He literally looks like he was born with a receding hairline and a sour demeanor.

I got in before the Winston Churchill comments.

"I always think..."

I always think babies look like aliens or old men. Don't you agree?

"Scratch it..."

Scratch it behind its ear and say, "Where'd you find it?"

"Exactly."

"What's that baby's alibi?"

"What?"

"Their alibi. What is it?"

"He/she doesn't have an alibi."

"Exactly."

"A woman got on a bus..."

A woman got on a bus holding a baby. The busdriver said: "That's the ugliest baby I've ever seen." In a huff, the woman slammed her fare into the fare box and took an aisle seat near the rear of the bus.

The man seated next to her sensed that she was agitated and asked her what was wrong. "The bus driver insulted me," she fumed. The man sympathized and said "Why, he's a public servant and shouldn't say things to insult passengers." "You're right," she said. "I think I'll go back up there and give him a piece of my mind."

"That's a good idea," the man said. "Here, let me hold your monkey."

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.
