What’s The Most Blatantly Incorrect Thing That You Were Taught At School?

Sometimes schools don’t get everything right.  That’s why Reddit users shared the incorrect things they were taught growing up:

  • If someone’s bullying you, ignore them and it will go away. – AnUnfinishedSentenc
  • That a large number of strangers would be offering me free drugs. – frezzhberry
  • That Christopher Columbus was some brave and heroic explorer. It got corrected in high school, but that’s what we learned in elementary school. – Beeftech67
  • That you should run from alligators in a zig zag, as they will try to follow you and it will slow them down. Apparently, Mythbusters looked into it and generally, alligators aren’t going to run after you. – allycakes
