We all had a teacher back in the day who claimed something was true that occasionally made you suspicious. As you have gotten older, you have learned that your skepticism was not unwarranted and that you were absolutely right to question some of the nonsense this so-called educator was spewing.
Over the years, we have all collected these bizarre “facts” that we have since disproven. They’re often fun anecdotes to share at a party. For instance, did you know I was taught that I was taught that I was going to go blind just because I didn’t eat carrots? That kind of ridiculous over-exaggeration is evidently very common in grade school. These folks shared the ridiculous concepts they were taught via this r/AskReddit thread. Keep scrolling below to see what they had to say. When you’re finished, feel free to take a look at more lists like this, such as this collection of shady industries.
