1849 firefly232 Specific to the **United Kingdom** only: You can live together and be 'common-law married' nope, not a legal state in the UK. You are married or cohabiting, but cohabiting has very little legal obligation or protection. E.G. Lived together with a partner for 40 years, moved into their house? Joint Bank accounts? . If they die without a will, their estate goes to their next of kin, not you. You are a **legal** stranger to them. This is why people who divorce and start a second relationship need to make proper wills and discuss how assets will be split. Edit to add: As has been highlighted in the comments, things are slightly different in Scotland...
3949 Sanshine13 Chloroform isn't really that helpful with kidnapping. It can make people pass out after some time, yes, but inhale a bit more of it and people die. That shit's being used for dissolving plastics, so yeah..
570 Pojinator89 Waiting 24 hours to notify the police about a missing person. If you have a genuine concern call ASAP.
2577 annidj668 A lot of people think people in witness protection get killed quite often when actually none of them who have followed the guidelines have been killed.
2220 NameUnbroken You could slip into a coma if you fall asleep after getting a concussion. Medical professionals try to keep you awake after head injuries so that they can assess the severity of your injuries, which they cannot do if you're sleeping. If you have a brain injury bad enough to cause you to go into a coma, it's gonna happen whether you try to stay awake or not. For minor concussions, rest/sleep is actually helpful.
126 scruit If the cop makes a minor mistake on a traffic ticket then it will be automatically thrown out in court. In reality, unless the mistake is major, the information will be corrected on the court record, or a new corrected ticket will be issued. The police/prosecutor may choose to not proceed, but that is their choice - and they could just as easily choose to correct and proceed. Minor mistakes like car color, make/model, name, address etc even plate number that can be easily explained as a simple mistake are generally correctable. The officer’s testimony in court can correct and override identifed mistakes in the ticket. To benefit from a mistake and be found not guilty, the mistaken version needs to be: - testified to in court - and fundamental part of the prosecution - and demonstrably false Example: - I get a pulled over for speeding in Alpha County at 23:50 on 2017-09-25 - The cop looks at his watch, writes down the time, then starts talking to me. - 20 minutes pass, then the officer looks at his watch to get the date and writes down 2017-09-26 - I now have a ticket that indicates I was speeding in Alpha County at 23:50 on 2017-09-26, which is 24 hours in the future. - I travel to Bravo County that night and get an unimpeachable alibi for 23:50 2017-09-26 - At my court hearing for the speeding ticket the officer testifies I was speeding at 23:50 on 2017-09-26 in Alpha County. - I provide my alibi showing I was unquestionably in Bravo County at 23:50 on 2017-09-26 directly disproving the officer’s case TBH, in this kind of case the officer or prosecutor could look at the next citation number after mine, figure out the mistake and still correct it.

417 razelbagel "If someone is having a seizure, stick a wallet in their mouth so they don't swallow their tongue" Don't do that. Don't stick things in people's mouths ever, let alone when they're having a seizure. Also do not hold them down like in the movies. You're just going to break something. If someone is having a seizure, remove any objects around them that you safely can do they don't hit their head but do not touch them (though if they're in a chair and falling out, lower them safely to the ground if you can). Take note how long the seizure lasts and if they have multiple, note how many and how frequently. Otherwise there isn't much you can do while they're actively seizing. Also, when the seizure is over the person might be extremely lethargic and confused. Also, CPR doesn't magically bring people back and shocking people doesn't start the heart. Both are extremely important and the earlier it's initiated the better chance the person has. But CPR is at its core a delay tactic to get the person to an ER/OR where they can fix the cause. I've said this on here before, but everyone should get CPR certified. Classes are $40 and a couple hours and the cert lasts two years and the sooner someone can provide quality cpr the better.

1507 cachaka Goldfish/fish can live in bowls. No. It's slow and cruel torture. Ammonia builds up because of lack of filtration and the incredibly small amount of water doesn't dilute toxins enough to be not as deadly. Their gills burn off and then they suffocate to death. Edit: Sort of to follow up... There's more to consider than just water quality when it comes to bowls and tanks. You want to get the best tank that you can afford and maintain. And if what you can afford and care for isn't up to the minimum requirements of your fish/pet, seriously reconsider getting one. Fish can survive in bowls, but can they live a happy, stimulating, and thriving life? Imagine living in a washroom stall all your life. Bowls are similar to that in my opinion. Things that you want to keep in mind when caring for fish is: do I have time to maintain the tank weekly? Will I be regularly testing my water to ensure it is good for my fish? Can I provide enough space for my fishies to swim properly? If I get a small tank and the fish I purchase are small but will become large in the future, am I willing to upgrade to the proper tank size? If you want to learn more about proper fish care, there are tons of subs with lots of info and awesome people that will go more in depth for you! r/bettafish and r/Aquariums are some good ones.
785 Owlbread That betta fish "live in puddles in the wild", so sticking them in a bowl of stagnant tap water is just fine. Nope. No. They live in rice paddies-- which are miles long and full of FLOWING water. They require a heater and filter. If you put them in a bowl of water, they will essentially suffocate in their own waste until they die. "But I had a betta in a bowl, and it lived for a year!" Yeah, and I had a puppy in a 2x2 kennel and fed it every now and then and it lived three years, so I must have done something right, yeah? Drives me nuts. An animal is not "living decor", it's a live creature. Do the research required to keep an animal healthy or don't have one at all. That simple. (Also, goldfish live years and years, and can get about a foot long. They need a pond or a very big tank. Stop torturing critters!)
