5 Reaction GIF Sites For When You Just Don’t Know What To Say

Reaction GIFs are a crucial part of Internet communication that help provide emotion where mere text cannot. Many people may say that they are over-used and tacky. However, where punctuation can make the difference between “Yes.” and “Yes!”, reaction GIFs help with the areas in-between.

4 Websites That Cause The World To Implode Whenever They Are Down

The Internet is like its own little country, and its many websites are like public squares for its thousands upon thousands of citizens. However, what if these public squares were all of a sudden to shut down? Perhaps these squares are not so much squares but more like little highways with roadblocks.

After all, we had “finished the fight” and were told that Halo was meant to be a trilogy. But one day, a video popped up on the Internet, and we all discovered that it was an actual, real-live, true-blue Halo 4 trailer!
