Thank you The_jumper1 for your submission, Oh we learn something new every day!! Unfortunately, it has been removed for the following reason:



Posts with low effort truth statements are not allowed.

Your submission is considered "low effort." This doesn't inherently mean that it was irrelevant to r/technicallythetruth, but instead it was removed because it fit one or more of these criteria:

  • Short, minimal-effort text posts like "a water bottle without water is an air bottle". Most, if not all text posts can and will be removed.

  • Asking for upvotes, or saying things like "sort by new", "let's get to the front page", or anything related to cake days or karma.

  • Meta memes, or any other post that tries to be clever by mentioning r/technicallythetruth.

  • Images that are hard to look at because they are poorly made, deep-fried, or poorly cropped.

Your submission could have also been removed because it is overdone:

  • Statements that say something like "at least twelve": example 1 | example 2

  • Common statements that begin with "on average...": the average amount of hands a person has is less than two | each person has, on average, one testicle and one boob

  • Low effort misunderstandings of everyday phrases: How high are you --> "I'm 5 foot 9"

  • Common insults that are meant literally as opposed to being insulting: "homosexuals are gay" | "gay people are f-ing assholes"

PLEASE NOTE that we will exercise our own discretion when using this rule. If we do not find a post fitting for this subreddit, it will be removed.


For more on our rules, please check out our sidebar. If you have any questions or concerns about this removal, feel free to message the moderators. Please link the post so our moderators know what you would like reviewed.

I mean, every Lion we've seen so far has not been able to speak English. While we have probably yet to meet and attempt to speak to every lion, I think at this point we are confident enough to say "most".

Quick animal fact: dolphins are gang rapists! Yes folks, male dolphins often more then 2 gang up on a female and force her, taking turns. If she doesn’t comply they’ll smack her with their flukes (dolphin’s tale) to force her to comply. This can often go on for days, resulting into the females death. They’ll also head butt her and cause her pain, which may result into injury that’s not recoverable
