Everybody is missing at least one piece of common knowledge. Something that almost everyone knows, but for whatever reason slipped through the cracks of your brain. For example, after 26 years on earth, I only just realized that Tums — a medicine for stomach aches — is short for “tummy.”
We asked Chivers on Instagram to chime in with the things they realized embarrassingly late in life. I’m partially ashamed to admit that I didn’t know a lot of these, either.
Side note: wayyy too many of you didn’t know pickles came from cucumbers. We appreciate the honesty but good lord.
