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 an IAmA with a guy who believes love is blind, some Batman knowledge, some cool stuff to buy, the Subreddit of the week, and more juicy bits of goodness. So sit back and get ready for the Best of Reddit.
In this particular thread, a Redditor came into $100, and he wanted to find the coolest way to spend it online. The most popular suggestion comes from Reddit user That_Deaf_Guy. He suggests being the first person on the Internet to buy a copy of Winrar. Of course, this is not what you would call a useful suggestion, but it is funny nonetheless.
There are plenty of awesome suggestions tucked away in this thread, and if you have $100 burning a hole in your pocket, browsing this thread should give you some (odd) ideas. I have never heard of many of the items in the thread, but I must admit, there are some I am considering buying.
This thread contains spoilers, many, many spoilers. If you have not seen the Dark Knight Rises, or any of the other two movies in the Dark Knight series, do not click the link and read this thread. If you have seen them, and want to read a well thought out, eloquent description of everything that happened, this is the thread for you.
Of course, the thread also led to some awesome discussion from other Redditors. Plenty of knowledge can be ascertained from reading this. Again, if you have not seen the movies, do not click this thread. Seriously, go see the movies because they are amazing.
We have all been there. You meet a guy or girl, and you want to think of a way to make them notice you. You try your best to think of something truly impressive, and when you finally come up with something, it backfires in your face, leaving you feeling like a complete moron.
If you do nothing else with this article, just read this comment. It is a hilarious story that sounds so insane that it just has to be true. Of course, I recommend scrolling through the whole thread, because there are plenty of other stories, but this one in particular is just incredible.
I hate to admit it, but I have always been a little curious about what it would be like to have a blind significant other. Apparently, I am not the only one, because the questions came pouring into the IAmA. All the little things that come along to mind are asked in this thread. It is quite a fascinating read if you have ever wanted to see what life is like in this situation.
The thread talks about how he and his wife watch movies, whether he occasionally laughs at things she does, and how he helps her get along in their day-to-day life. It is a heartwarming and fascinating thread that is worth taking a read.
