It's always fun to see the mistakes people made way back that look so dumb/naive/ridiculous in hindsight.

I'll start one: When Planck decided to become a physicist, he was told by a physicist named Phillipp von Jolly that in "this field, almost everything is already discovered, and all that remains is to fill a few holes," so it was pointless to become a physicist.

Then Planck went on to create the quantum theory.
