20 Times People Were Wildly Confidently Wrong

I once went on a date with a guy who was otherwise absolutely fine, but he insisted that Texas was not a slave state.

Y’all.

The entire reason Texas fought Mexico was because the slave-owning settlers were not complying with MEXICAN LAW while they were IN MEXICO where slavery was OUTLAWED.

He was so absolutely sure that he was right on this topic that not even I, a history major, could get this TRUE FACT into his mind.

He would be such a perfect fit on r/ConfidentlyIncorrect, a subreddit dedicated to finding total wrongs on the internet. Get ready to stare blankly.
