When we say ‘Hitler’, what do you think of? World War 2? Holocaust? Definitely not report cards, right? Well that’s about to change.
We chanced upon a rather interesting thread on reddit a while back and we couldn’t help but share it with you.
It makes you wonder just how bad were his grades that he decided to wipe his derrière with his report card?
So does it make me a bad person if I see something about Hitler and think “Damn, I wish I’d thought of that”?

So… how does it feel to relate to this guy?

Not exactly what we were looking for, but we’ll take it. But as it turns out, the author of the post was kind enough to provide us with a link in the title. So we followed it to its source and here is where it led us.
