A couple days ago, Harrison Ford did a Reddit AMA to promote his new movie ‘Years of Living Dangerously’. And this being the internet, he was of course asked as to who shot first— Han or Greedo?
I think we would all like to know: Who shot first? Han Solo or Greedo?
I don’t know and I don’t care.
Redditor KF2 came up with an amazing description of living life with depression for those of you who might not understand, but are perhaps more familiar with role playing game mechanics. Definitely worth a read.
There are plenty of internet meme generation apps out there for iOS and Android and I don’t know maybe Windows phones, but there’s only one imgur and now there’s an official imgur meme generating app for iOS, complete with more memes than I’ve seen in any other similar programs. After the ban of Quickmeme from Reddit thanks to spambots, imgur launched a web meme generator and an Android version last summer, and now iOS users can get in on the hot action.
WARNING: The condition is known as diphallia, and yes, there are pictures. Most people who have diphalia have one penis that’s full sized and one little barely formed penile nub. But this guy on Reddit has two full sized, fully functional dicks. And yes, he can stick both in the v, or on in the v-hole, the other in the b-hole at the same time. Holy shit.
// that’s enough internet for the month
Join us on Wednesday, April 23rd at 10am PST for an AMA (Ask Me Anything) with the director of Birdemic 2:The Resurrection, James Nyugen. The film, destined to be another cult classic, has “romance, horror, awkward sex, deadly birds, zombies, and a giant jellyfish.” Birdemic 2: The Resurrection picks up on the catastrophe of the first film when a flock of eagles and vultures wreak havoc amidst blossoming romance in Hollywood, California, leaving bloodshed and destruction wherever they hover in the sequel to the cult smash hit Birdemic: Shock and Terror.
Reddit has been democratizing internet news for a while now and it’s still gotta have ads to pay the bills. But at least now you can upvote or downvote ads. See an ad and hate it? Downvote it and you’ll never see it again. Hopefully this will give advertisers feedback on the kinds of ads that annoy people, because they seem to have no idea at all whatsoever.
Last week, Dave Grohl did an AMA on Reddit and in the middle of the normal AMA chaos, a roommate of one of the members of the Pittsburgh band Winter Brave linked to one of their songs, asking Grohl to give it a listen. He did, he loved it and Winter Brave kinda blew up over night.
At age 14, Aaron Swartz co-authored the first set of specs for RSS. He then went on to co-found Reddit and later founded DemandProgress.org, the leading voice against the SOPA and PIPA internet censorship bills. He died by his own hand yesterday at the age of 26. Today, the internet has lost one of its great talents and assets and protectors. RIP.
