Sad Keanu Meme Accidentally Makes It Into Ukrainian Textbook

We all inherently know that sweet, sweet Keanu Reeves belongs in the annals of history, but his recent appearance in a Ukrainian history textbook was decidedly unintentional - and is receiving a lot of attention on Twitter. According to the BBC, Twitter user @jigsawdeaad was perusing the textbook and spotted Sad Keanu in a famous photo of New York iron workers taking a break from building a skyscraper. 

Though most people on Twitter shared the photo in the spirit of humor and because, well, Keanu, some people were not so pleased with the error. On Facebook, some people expressed their disappointment that publications are relying on quick Google searches to fill the educational tomes. While the publishing company claims the error came from one of their designers, the book's author, Ihor Schupak, came out to express that he'd been well aware of the blunder.

"When the designer who worked with me on the book's illustrations showed me that photo with Keanu Reeves, I didn't notice that small detail at first," he wrote on Facebook after the photoshopped photo was noticed and widely reported in Ukraine. "But when I understood the meme, I decided to keep it."

Whether or not that story is true, the whole thing is incredibly entertaining. And just more proof that Keanu Reeves is immortal.

Depressing Twitter Thread Details The High Costs Of Education In America

Getting a college education in America can completely ruin a person financially, as times just aren't what they used to be when our Baby Boomer parents were our age. This Twitter thread is depressing as hell, but highlights the reality of being in an outrageous amount of student debt.

The solution to all of this? It may be time to encourage today's high school kids not to attend traditional college and go to trade school or community college instead!

Tumblr Thread Reveals True Meaning & Full Versions Of Classic Proverbs

I can't remember the first time I was told that "curiosity killed the cat" but it was probably by my mother. The petite neurotic woman was convinced that at any moment something terrible was about to happen to one of her brood. While it's been many years since I realized the adage was antithetical to a rich and full life, it wasn't until this Tumblr thread that I realized there was more to the proverb. As it turns out, the phrase is not meant to ward off healthy curiosity. The thread doesn't stop the splainin' there, either. We've never felt more sure of ourselves regarding the use of tired proverbs. Knowledge truly is power.

tumblr thread about the full version of classic proverbs | curiosity killed cat is actually not full phrase actually is"curiosity killed cat but satisfaction brought back" so don't let anyone tell not be curious little baby okay go and be interested world See also: Blood is thicker than water- blood covenant is thicker than water womb. Meaning relationships formed by choice are stronger than those formed by birth.

We often lament the current state of healthcare in the United States, but judging by these social media posts, we need to take a much harder look at the state of our school systems. These morons either cut all their Sex Ed classes or even worse - didn't have access to a sexual education program at all. 

For more cringey ignorance, check out these abominable posts we shared last year.

Twitter Thread Exposing Fish Fraud Is Both Eye-Opening & Revolting

We've got some seriously bad news for fish-lovers. According to a report from nonprofit Oceana, over 20% of 449 fish that they tested were mislabeled, exposing some pretty serious "fish fraud." This is a staggering percentage, especially when considering that less than 1% of fish is tested for fraud. There's a huge chance that the expensive fish you're ordering while dining out is cheap - or even, according to this related Twitter thread from a biology professor, dangerous. There are fish out there that will hurt you to eat. And, as @AwesomeBioTA's class discovered, some of this "fish" is almost too disgusting for words.

Louisiana is one of the most impoverished states in the country and the tweet had people asking why the school wasn't making more of an effort to put that money toward education, or at the very least paying the athletes.

Here are some of the reaction tweets.

16 Educational Kahoot Memes That'll Make Any Student Giddy

If you're old and aren't familiar with what "Kahoot" is, it's a user-generated educational quiz game played by students all over the world. Once a student creates a quiz, aka a "Kahoot," it generates a pin number that others can enter into their computers or mobile devices in order to join in. A trivia question with four multiple-choice answers pops up on a communal screen and players can pick their answer. 

As you can probably guess, students go nuts over this game - probably because it's a hell of a lot more interesting than sitting in class listening to a boring-ass teacher talk for an hour!
