The whole world around us, all the facts and things in it, from the point of view of our knowledge, is divided into three categories: what we are not sure of, what we are sure of, and what we are ready to swear to defend with our life. That very hill to die on. And such beliefs are different for various people, of course.
The so-called "Socratic paradox" goes that "I know that I know nothing" and is attributed to the great Greek philosopher Socrates. And still, even the great skeptic, denying the possibility of any knowledge, in the end, as we remember, took poison, defending his own convictions. Of course, one should not be so radical, but still, each of us has our own truths.
And so, a few days ago, a thread appeared in the AskReddit community, the author of which asked a question about just this: "What do you swear on your life to be 100% true?" Today, the thread has over 42.6K upvotes and almost 28.5K different comments, and what is an indisputable truth for some may well be perceived by others as a very controversial issue. In the end, so many people - so many opinions.
Bored Panda has carefully sifted through the sand of the original thread's numerous comments in search of the golden grains of the best, most popular, and weightiest comments, so now feel free to scroll to the very end of this list, mark the most interesting submissions for you and, of course, leave your comments. After all, you, we are almost sure, also have your own truths that you would bet are 100% true!

#12History is written and preserved and distributed by the winners.
Humans are capable of lying, twisting facts to show themselves, places and people they like in a good light. Modern world has PR agencies for rich and connected.
Combine the two and history as we know it is a twisted version of what really happened.

#21People don't *genuinely* care about deaths of strangers they don't personally know or haven't met. If people had the option to choose to sacrifice 10 lives of people they have never met to save 1 they love, they would do it without hesitation - they probably wouldn't admit it out loud, but they *would* agree to it.

#30Black Bears are learning that they could benefit from a friendly relationship with humans after seeing how easy domesticated dogs and cats have it. They are in the early stages of trying to domesticate themselves.

#31There is always someone better and worse than you at everything. Be humble when winning.
Edit: Bolt is a legend. Just as all of the world record holders through the decades are. Maybe not at this moment, but maybe tomorrow or next decade they will be someone better.
My Dad told me this when I was a young one. I always believed it to be true.

#39I went to DreamWorks studios when I was 11 to give a presentation of my animation skills. Nobody ever believes me when I tell them that story. I swear I’m not making it up, it really happened.
To keep it brief, I took an online animation course and the company that made the course liked it so much that asked me to be a model student for a business deal with DreamWorks to use their IPs in their courses. They flew me out to LA for free, I got a private tour of the studio, and I even got to meet two animators who were working in animation tests for Trolls (which came out 3 years later). I even got to see concept art for the Captain Underpants movie, which had just started development at the time.
To this day I still think this is my life’s peak and it’s all downhill from here.
I wanna clarify that while this is the animation I made, I DID NOT MAKE THE CHARACTERS, ASSETS, OR STORY. The course instructors provided all of that and told me what to animate. I just made them move. However, I did add a lot of unique details and elements on my own, such as having the secondary character throughout the whole animation and having them jump into the spaceship at the end.

#40About 25 years ago I saw a black panther jump across the road in front of our car, it was about 20ft away and we just missed it.
It jumped from out of the bushes on the left , landed in the middle and then jumped clean into the bushes on the right.
It was about 4ft long with a tail almost as big. This was at night and my gf and me saw it clearly in the headlights

#42Hollowing out the entire moon to build a theme park inside of it would be a good idea
Also I'd turn the entire surface into a large hotel
