Bored Panda has compiled a list of some of the most creative ways people proved their rightness, and it'll prove that sometimes you have to work to earn vindication.

From a contractor vouching for his cabinet's sturdiness to a guy showing a police officer how sober he is, these people were brave enough to do whatever it takes in the name of truth. Scroll down to check out the effort it sometimes takes to convince others, and vote for your favorite submissions!
