Homework is hard. It's boring. It's more work for young kids brains on top of the work they've already done in schools. Research from around the world has shown that it's not really that effective, and many of the world's highest ranking nations and schools have begun to do away with the idea of it entirely. None of that is going to help this little boy get out of having to do it for the time being, so the little mastermind called in some backup - from Alexa.

Yerelyn Cueva caught her son, Jariel, asking Alexa what the answers were for his math homework. She picked up her phone and recorded it on video, then posted the clip on Twitter jokingly asking if she should punish him now or later. The video took off! At the point of this article, the brief clip has over 8 million views and thousands of comments and shares.

Check it out.

People were honestly kind of impressed.

A few people posed concerns about mom's comment.

While there's no evidence that mom was serious about handing out whoopings, that little boy is absolutely serious about working his resources to his advantage, and for that we kind of have to tip our hats to him.

People may scoff at it now for simple subtraction, but as he gets older this sort of thing will absolutely come in handy. Knowing how to find the answers when you don't know the answers is one of the most useful kinds of intelligence a person can have - and this kid's clearly a genius.

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?
