Consider pockets, purses, backpacks, totes, and clutches. They vary in their sizes, zipper approach, use of leather, and the extent to which sequins and rhinestones are involved.

But common to all is that they allow everybody to carry bizarre sentimental crap and not worry about strangers judging them for it.


There's the usual phone, wallet, keys that always make the cut. Subtle weaponry makes an appearance in the daily luggage a good amount of the time too.

But after those few unanimously valued items come the strange things from one's past and the shameless hobby equipment.

This is really lame honestly, but I always bring blank cards with me and give them to people that I see that are having a hard day or that have helped me with something.

Earplugs.

Our hearing is more fragile than we think and it's very easy to get permanent damage resulting in tinnitus.

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.

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.

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?

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?
