Best of Reddit - Introduction:
There are so many great threads on reddit, every single day, but soon they disappear into the void - for the very nature of reddit itself. This is a place to save what I find most “useful” in a given week.
I’d bet that the quality of this panel is gonna vary a lot on a week by week basis, but I hope that overall it’s gonna be worthwile — you’ll be the judge of that.
• How compression works
• Askreddit thread about soldiers war story
• 25 years of old dungeons and dragons maps
• Cinema and the use of CGI
• A guy finds out that he’s colorblind
• Google map layer of LOTR filming locations
• Wait before saying that you have it on video, after having an accident
• Great conquerors playing risiko
• Popular sites report a fabricated reddit story
• Why gardens are illegal in New Zealand
This is probably the best thread of the week, so hilarious how everyone seems perfectly legit while answering.
Bonus: I was about to publish when the news about Star Wars 7 broke out and since I’m a huge fan I can’t refrain from commenting on it here. The teaser of episode 7 has been released, I can’t deny that my reaction hasn’t been positive at all. It seems like something for toddlers. If the whole movie is like this it’s going to be a no go for me, sadly. I still hope they wanted to make fun of us with it… On the other hand everybody else on reddit seems to think that the trailer is great.
