Reddit is a social media that many know, but I feel like I don’t know enough people who use it. It’s an interesting website where you can find anything and everything. The great thing about it is you can specialize your dashboard to only show what you’re interested in, broad or specific. You don’t follow people, you follow subreddits, or specific pages dedicated to a certain topic or theme. From r/aww to r/LaserCleaningPorn, I can guarantee there’s subreddit out there for you. 


Here’s a few of my favorites in which I love getting lost:


This sub is dedicated to roasting people, all in good fun! People upload a photo of themselves and ask to be roasted. They definitely provide plenty of laughs and might even help you improve your own roasting skills.


This sub is dedicated to people posting about their fights, conflicts, and arguments for the internet to judge whether or not they are the asshole (YTA) in the situation. Some of them are incredibly ridiculous, such as a guy who could not understand why taking home his girlfriend’s entire lasagna wasn’t cool, to more serious topics, like ruining someone’s wedding. You can either simply read and laugh, like I do, or decide to join in on the decision whether the original poster (OP) is the asshole or not.


Learn something new everyday with this sub. People quite literally simply just submit interesting and specific facts they’ve learned and want to share. Today I Learned (TIL) a 16 year old survived a five hour flight inside the landing gear of a jumbo jet from San Jose, California to Maui, Hawaii. He blacked out on takeoff and the plane went to 38,000ft meaning temperatures of 75-80 below zero and a lack of oxygen probably leading to “a state of suspended animation.” WHAT THE HECK?


If you aren’t aware, The Onion is a news site that only posts satirical articles. However, on r/nottheonion, they only post articles that are so ridiculous, you would have sworn The Onion wrote it. For example, National Geographic hired Jeff Goldblum to walk around and be professionally fascinated by things.


Such pure and wholesome posts of people just being genuinely awesome people. This sub will definitely restore your faith in humanity.


This sub is completely dedicated to people asking thought-provoking questions. Whether they’re deep and serious or weird and a little too personal to ask in person, they’re fascinating to read and usually elicit some fun reactions.


Basically nothing but badass images of how awesome nature can be. Sometimes it’s terrifying, but it’s also pretty freaking awesome.


While r/natureismetal is insanely awesome, r/AnimalsBeingDerps is hilariously awesome in its own way. Videos, photos and gifs of nothing else, but animals acting like complete idiots.


Interested in more subs? Subreddit of the day can help you find new and interesting subs to join, whether small or big, new or old. r/BrandNewSentences got my attention today.
