Sometimes there are puzzles we solve right away. Other times, there are obvious things right in front of our face that we didn't even know were puzzles. People on Reddit were asked about really obvious things they just figured out. Their answers were a mix of hilarious, shocking, and informative. Who knew "walk the plank" was so existentially terrifying?

    Santa's Funneling The Information

    From Redditor u/currentlydownvoted

    That parents have children write letters to Santa so they can figure out what to buy them for Christmas. I can’t believe how I never put that together after 32 years on this earth I just thought it was fun little tradition..

    Carrots & Almonds

    From Redditor u/Canwerevolt

    I recently realized I was allergic to carrots. I just thought they made everyone's mouth numb, you know, just like almonds.... I also learned recently that I have an almond allergy.

    Judgmental End Credits

    From Redditor u/Tetrapawd

    I must've been around 11-12 years old, when I realized that "in order of appearance" during the end credits of a movie doesn't list the actors/actresses by who is the most good looking.

    That's Mr. Nat Geo To You

    From Redditor u/fffffffffrrrr

    Up until last year I thought Nat Geo was a person. I then realised it was short for National Geographic.
