Women's fashion has always been a difficult and frustrating thing.

If you aren't familiar with women's clothing, it's very different than men's: the material is much thinner, sizing makes approximately zero sense across brands, and very rarely do the clothes have pockets--or they have fake pockets, which is even more infuriating.


But one woman was on a mission to alleviate some of that frustration during her wedding.

In a viral post (that has now been shared upwards of 3,000 times) a bridesmaid tweeted a picture of her and the bride's wedding party, "My friend got married last month and her dress and the bridesmaids' dresses ALL HAD POCKETS."


And people were SO thrilled that they could not stop talking about it on Twitter.






"And yes, we did use them for storing snacks, thank you for asking."

But why don't women's dresses have pockets?

"I honestly believe the fashion industry is not helping women advance," said Camilla Olson, director of CO LLC, a high fashion firm.

"We [women] know clearly we need pockets to carry technology and I think it's expected we are going to carry a purse. When we're working we don't carry purses around. A pocket is a reasonable thing."







"I find it discouraging," Olson said. "Fashion looks selectively at who they let in and keeps women at a certain place. It's not helping women move forward in the workplace."

Olson also says she believes industry trends will soon change:

"More women are expecting and demanding pockets. I was hearing more about pockets on the runway in recent shows. Pockets are becoming more interesting, but they aren't the size to carry around an iPhone, much less an iPhone [6] Plus."






These dresses were purchased from David's Bridal.

"You'd never expect to hire suits for guys and then 'add pockets' as an extra," Eva Paterson, the bride in the photo, said of her decision to purchase the dresses. "These dresses prove that it's possible to look beautiful, feel amazing, and be practically equipped for the day, and I hope it encourages other brands to up their game on this as well."

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?

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.
