So many people in America dream of one day being part of the 1% of ultra-wealthy billionaires who control the vast majority of wealth throughout the world. One Tumblr user, however, was fairly certain many of the people pining after the lifestyle of a billionaire weren't completely aware of just how much money the world's wealthiest people had. The Last Meme Era told Bored Panda:

Basically I guessed that most people probably don't have a clear concept of what a billion dollars actually is, and if I could put it into practical terms that are easy to understand, people would be shocked at just how rich the world's wealthiest people are. Hopefully people might be moved to become more socially engaged if they had a better picture of how society distributes economic resources.

The Last Meme Era then began to drop some shocking facts on all of us:

People Share The Dumbest Rules Their Strict Family Enforced

Growing up, my parents insisted that I take my brother with me everywhere I go. The idea was that he, as a boy, would offer some form of protection.

The reality was that all he did was make my life miserable and create dangerous situations.

Now, this isn't his fault. This is 100% on our family, their built-in patriarchal B.S. (sorry latin people, you know I'm right - we have so far left to go) and their refusal to believe in medicine.

My brother was younger than me (by 5 years, that's a good chunk during childhood) and smaller than me, but because he was a boy he was automatically granted more freedom.

He could go out alone with his friends, I could not. He could date, I could not. He could do things outside of school and church, like martial arts classes. I was only allowed school activities or church activities.

What made the whole thing worse, though, was that his younger age and diagnosed but untreated ADHD meant that not only was he not "protecting" me when they would force him to come as my chaperone - he was creating problems.

People Confess The Food They Can't Buy Because They'll Eat The Whole Thing In One Sitting

I cannot be trusted with chocolate marshmallow cookies.

I don't even like marshmallows, but something happens in my brain when I bite into it and I no longer have an ability to say no. It doesn't even matter what brand - could be Mallomars, or pinwheels, or whatever your local store brand is.

Doesn't matter, just put it in the freezer and walk away. It's best you forget about it, because you'll never see the box again.

People Confess Which Rules Have Been Created Because Of Their Actions

We all did wild things when we were young. Many of us still do wild things now.

Some of these actions were against the rules. Other actions weren't exactly banned but were frowned upon. And some actions were so crazy, no one thought about having a rule against them at first.

Sometimes, we do something so out of the ordinary that a rule is created so it won't happen again. These are often the best stories.
