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:

If you don't have any experience with construction, it can be pretty interesting to watch those reality HGTV shows (I know I'm addicted at this point). Some of the best episodes can be the one's where they open up the walls to find the builder didn't do anything right, causing a huge blow to the budget. The drama!

As someone who doesn't know much about building, and is dreaming of homeownership, Redditor Vast_Recognition_682 asked a question I wish I had thought of first.

Unless you've been a member of the armed forces, you may only know drill sergeants as uncompassionate leaders who yell at privates all the time.

Years ago I had a classmate who was a total daredevil... so much so that he would often injure himself. He once drove a bike in the direction of oncoming traffic, just for the hell of it. He got out of that episode unscathed––luckily. By contrast, I prefer keeping all my limbs, and still have them all. I wonder where he is now. Hopefully not too banged up. I did do some stuff unwittingly––like the time I stuck a fork into an electrical socket. I thankfully wasn't shocked too much. I was young and naive.

People told us all about the dangerous things they did when they were younger after Redditor Not-an-Ocelot asked the online community,
