Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, children of all ages; welcome to another fun-filled edition of the Best of Reddit. This is the weekly column where we look at some of the coolest shenanigans taking place on Reddit and share them with all of you. For anyone unfamiliar with Reddit, make sure to look at our handy Reddit guide and learn the ropes. For you Reddit experts, maybe you just missed these in your Reddit travels. Maybe you saw these and you just want to tell me how there is a million things I could have found that were better than the ones I choose. Either way, read on and be entertained.
This week we have a trip to Mars with the Curiosity team, historical misconceptions, motivating weight loss stories, the Subreddit of the week, and more juicy bits of Reddit goodness. So sit back and get ready for the Best of Reddit.
The Internet is abuzz with everything Mars lately. Ever since the Curiosity started beaming back photos of Mars, it seems we all cannot get enough. Well much of the team behind the Mars landing took to Reddit to answer questions from the community and fill us in on what is going on.
Even the infamous Mohawk guy jumped in and talked to the Reddit community. If you are a space junkie, or just someone curious about landing an unmanned spacecraft on Mars, you need to take a good look at this IAmA.
In daily life, we hear so many things stated as fact. Many of these so-called facts are not factual at all, and this Reddit thread is dedicated to clearing them up. History is one of those subjects that everyone is interested in, but so many people have so many things wrong.
This thread is packed to the gills with interesting facts about history that are actually true. If you have ever wanted to know a little more about some important historical stuff, this thread is perfect for you.
Awesome r/LoseIt Stories
LoseIt is a great place to hear motivational stories about people struggling, and succeeding, with a weight loss journey. Losing weight can be challenging, and some of the problems these people have face to meet their goals is truly staggering.
- 500 pounds cut almost in half (Male)
- Down 360 pounds with no help, how did he do it? (Male)
- That is a one crazy transformation (Female, somewhat NSFW in the album linked in original post, no nudity, but skimpy clothes involved)
- Short and sweet: jogged a full mile for the first time (Male)
Subreddit of the Week r/JusticePorn
Everyone loves to see people get what they deserve, and this Reddit is dedicated to exactly that. Call these results karma, justice, comeuppance, or whatever you want, JusticePorn is all about seeing the wrongdoers of their world get a taste of their own medicine. This is the place to see the less than stellar members of society get theirs.
Another fabulous week of Reddit nonsense is in the books, and I can only assume you enjoyed it. Please, let us know in the comments if you come across anything during your Reddit travels that you think is worthy of making the Best of Reddit.
