Some argue that there are normal question, and then there are stupid questions. Others say there are no stupid questions at all. I say there are questions that need to be asked, and then there are questions that nobody asked, but it’s nice there are discussions around it.

TikToker @ShowerThoughtsWMike pointed out that people often forget that there was once a time when glasses weren’t a thing, which potentially explains many historical myths and legends.

And this raises a good question—what is a myth that ended up being a result of poor eyesight? While we can’t say for sure, the internet sure as hell tried to speculate on the question, giving rise to a pretty fun Twitter thread.

Manatees, mermaids were most likely manatees.

Also migraines sometimes makes people see "auras". You see someone that seems to be shining with a supernatural light and suddenly you're "punished" with extreme pain for "laying your mortal eyes upon divinity".

Mountain lions scream like a woman when in heat. It is terrifying if you don't know what it is.

Was at the dinosaur exhibit once at a museum in the city and they had recently added a pterodactyl to the collection. I was looking up at it and thinking to myself that I’d probably hide if I saw something that big coming towards me, when a woman next to me says “Imagine that thing flying over you and taking a dump..” I actually imagined that for a couple of seconds and then cracked up laughing. I think I said you’d probably want to make sure you could swim..
