17 Things We Were Taught As Kids That Are Nonsense
We're not saying the education system in America isn't the greatest in the universe for all time, all we're saying is that maybe there is a problem when the only way to fund our schools is for the soulless monolith of Big Business to print their own textbooks saying we should all be chugging milk and eating bowl after bowl of corn flakes in order for our bodies not to snap in half at age 30 like a glowstick.
That out of the way, let's revisit some items we were taught as kids that aren't exactly accurate. You'll feel so much better having your knowledge base corrected, and maybe, just maybe, you can politely pass these tidbits on to others. Maybe skip your Uncle Crazy, though - if he's like our Uncle Crazy the old fool is not particularly open to having anything at all corrected, not even his vision. Eeep.
