Oh, the good ol’ education system – always keeping us on our toes, amirite? I mean, who can forget the days of learning cursive in grade school, and then suddenly, they’re like, “Nah, we’re done with that.” It makes you wonder how these kids these days even sign their names (wait, do they)?
And it’s not just cursive; there’s a bunch of stuff we were taught in school that’s either obsolete or turned out to be flat-out wrong. It’s a bit disheartening, really. You start to question if there’s any hope left for the rest of us. Thank goodness for the internet, I guess. Remember when they used to say, “YoU wOn’T hAvE a CaLcUlAtOr WiTh YoU All ThE tImE”? But now, we have like every answer to every test ever on our phones right now. So yeah, I guess the internet is good for some things after all.
Check out what some of the other folks on Reddit have to say about myths they were taught in school.
