31 Historical Truths We All Get Hilariously Wrong All The Time
If there's one course that we need in school, it's a history of hats! Everyone talks about how school needs to teach kids how their taxes work, but no one is paying attention to the fact that we're all walking around imagining the wrong hats on our ancestors! Cowboys weren't into the classic “cowboy hat” aesthetic until way later than movies have led us to believe, and Vikings never worse those classic horned helmets at all. (Joke's on us for thinking Hagar the Horrible was a documentary.) Do feathers on the head count as a hat? Because that means we've been imagining dinosaur hats all wrong too!
It's not JUST hats, though-- There are all sorts of historical truths we've been imagining incorrectly. It's not entirely our fault, we weren't there, and thereby only have pop culture to rely on. Below are some of the wildest examples, even though we're really stuck on the hats thing.
