As i'm still unsure about what idea to go with, I have taken the top 4 from my list and have tried to expand them. So far I think the parent and teacher ideas are strong contenders for a comedic route and the medical ideas (doctors and body) are better suited for a more factual route.
- Missing toys are really in the bin
- 9 times out of 10, your toy was just too grubby to keep. The toys didn't go on holiday, really they just went in the bin
- Your drawings were terrible when you were little
- Just a small white lie but it you did get better with age
- Carrots don’t make you see in the dark
- Vitamin A promotes good eye health, and carrots contain beta-carotene, which the body converts to Vitamin A. Just a little white lie to help you out.
- They had a life before you
- Its hard to believe that they had a life before you but they did. Go ask your grandparents.
- Needles DO hurt
- If you move it will hurt. If you tense it will hurt. If you flinch it will hurt. You get where I’m going with this.
- No 2 people are a like - even with illnesses
- A cold actually mutates between each person so you can often get the same strain of cold back off the person you gave it to!
- They’ve seen it all before
- You’re often not the 1st person to come in with a bump on your head or a scraped knuckle but they’ll treat you the same as the person before and the person after
- Vaccines are important
- Without vaccinations, we’d still be dealing with a lot more nasty diseases.
- Your BMI is not an accurate measure of your health.
- In this instance, one size does not fit all.
- You can become allergic to anything at anytime!
- Its a strange but true fact although it is often quite rare. Just because you’ve eaten an apple every day of your life doesn't mean that tomorrow you could suddenly become allergic to them!
School / Teachers
- Taxes are real - and they're important too
- A lot of young adults today don't understand taxes. Where was a basic tax class in school?!
- Rent is A LOT of money
- You might have done a ‘fun’ activity in class adding up how much money you need for furniture but they neglect to tell you that rent is a lot of money too.
- Finding a job is hard
- Just because you have good grades doesn't necessarily mean you’ll get a job.
- Coursework doesn't get easier
- It will always get harder as you continue to learn new things
- The Pythagoras theorem isn't as important as you thought
- Nor is algebra
- Unbalanced fractions
- Pi. (unless spelt P. I. E.)
- On average your body needs 7-9 hours of sleep per night.
- Without sleep, your body suffers.
- You need fluids. Dehydration is a real threat. Try to keep your body topped up with drinks
- Lack of fluids can cause constipation, headaches, fatigue, and even kidney disease
- By eating fruits and vegetables, your body might be making its own aspirin
- People who intake benzoic acid, a natural substance in fruits and vegetables, make their own salicylic acid, the key component that gives aspirin its anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving properties.
- You need to look after you feet
- Each step puts up to 1.5 times your body weight on your feet, which are shock absorbers that bear 60 tons of pressure every mile you travel.
- The best age for learning was from birth till you were 12
- This is when our brain are primed to learn everything to ensure our survival. Of course you can still learn things after this age but it can be harder.
