I'm thinking the ancestors of the people standing on the beach when Columbus arrived might have been there first.
It is a sad misunderstanding :, ( he gets all the credit...
I'm not American, so correct me if I'm wrong.. Maybe the Finnish found America and told the French and the British Empire about the newfound land since the Finnish are not.. quietly capable of doing so.. That's what I heard
Okay I know that Colombus didn't discover America, but I forget who did. - AnonymousxcxcV 13 Comments
I love when people say, "if people evolved from monkeys, why are there still monkeys", like it is some great revelation that disproves human evolution. Nobody who paid attention in class, or had a teacher who was any good, thinks that evolution theory means the family tree of human beings includes a chimpanzee.
Humans think that people evolve from monkeys because we share like 40% of there DNA or something, but rats share 90% of our DNA and we apparently didn't evolve from them. God created every living creature on Earth. Even though we can't see him we Christians KNOW he is there. It's simply called faith.
We came from some ape-like creature, then the universe or something was like, " Hey let's make this into a freaky animal that's unusually evolved, and lets see if they could do stuff with their brains." Then the Internet was born. God did not make us out of monkeys, you Neanderthals.
Chimpanzees and bonobos specifically take the share of 99% shared DNA while gorillas are 1% lower as 98%, 75% mouse genes in particular if you calculate it a certain way, cats are 90% while animals like cows and dogs are around 80-82%. Drosophila, the fruit fly, share about 60 or 62% DNA sharing so kinda like chickens. But I don't know the truth so I agree with @Excited.
My English Teacher already said that a lot is not a word!
Really? We'll if the word is used so much and people think it's an actual word then it must be classed as a word - Harri666
I am still in elementary. We have learned all of these, except this one!
Beeen taught this. - LemonComputerV 5 Comments
There really is a difference, I promise. It's not a matter of preference.
I was an idiot to think that primary school would teach people this. Why don't 14 year olds don't know this? - ArtyLily
Your and you're isn't a huge deal, but this one can change the course of a statement in great lengths.
There-somewhere as in over there
They're-they are doing something
Oh, yeah, I hear you, folks. Loads of idiots who would come in to a test going "no idea what you're on about". Good reason for that. You're lazy, stupid, useless idiots. - PositronWildhawk
It's amazing how much patently false stuff people believe. How much false information circulates on Facebook because people don't take the time to see if it is false before reposting. You wouldn't have gotten away with turning in a report in school where all your 'facts' were things you heard other people say. You had to reference credible sources and cite them in a bibliography.
Remember that lesson as an adult so you don't look like an idiot for propagating stupid urban legends or spreading potentially harmful propaganda. Snopes.com... Bookmark it.
Some people are so STUPID! - jada13

It's amazing how much stupid stuff people do and how much time they waste because they don't bother to read the words right in front of them.
I always do this. The instructions may take you long to read, but it'll at least save time to fix it than figuring it out on your own. by the way, YouTube tutorials don't really count as instructions, the person could get something wrong in them, which will effect you too. - BlueTopazIceVanilla
My friend zack got a 10/25 on a test because he didn't read the instructions
More people are beginning to find out that this is wrong. However, I just feel disappointed in my generation when they say that Africa is a country. Africa has 1 billion people, and many distinct cultures. For example, you won't find a Zulu warrior in Morocco. - ethanmeinster
So many people think its true
Who the heck thinks that Africa is a country instead of a continent? - Anonymousxcxc
I didn't knew Africa was a continent, up until 2nd grade. - Chatsa2V 5 Comments
We were all taught to do our own work and not copy off of others. So why does everyone feel it is okay to steal the work of others? Quote people, sure, but give credit where credit is due.
In first grade a girl copied me every time we had a test.
I learned that it is illegal. - Goatworlds
Maybe people would make fewer stupid decisions of they had a better understanding of probability
Health class skipped over this in favor of "how to eat healthy". - MrLoser
They told us but nobody listens.
We were talked about this every year in elementary school. - Skullkid755
My health teacher said that! - GoatworldsV 1 Comment
Everyone is special for their Looks, talents and personality, or is that unique... - DapperPickle

Yeah, the bombing of Pearl Harbor was when America got involved in it. The actual war started in 1939, I know it had something to do with Hitler's rise in the Nazi party, but I can't remember the exact details. - Anonymousxcxc
It started by Germany invading Poland. I learned it in seventh grade. - 906389
World War II wasn't started by Pearl Harbor's attack. It just lead the United States and it's defensive pact-doers into the war. - doodie
Or better yet, read what you have written out loud.
It happens all the time that when writing, people leave out words, change tense, create run on sentences, etc. Take a few extra minutes to proof read things after you have written them, even if it is just a Facebook post. It's worth the effort so you don't come off as being an idiot.
