Porn Habits of Gamers, How to Get Rid of Trump, and War of the Mudskippers

Plus: GoPros in Space, Scotch with Glacier Ice, and "$ave Dat Money"!
 

Happy Sunday,

This was a good week for redemption stories on Reddit. A photo of 14-year-old Ahmed Mohamed in handcuffs (after bringing a clock to class) went viral on r/pics, and within hours he was getting offers to visit The White House and an internship at Reddit, and eventually an apology from his local police department.

The mystery of a friend’s lost phone was solved, and although that guy didn’t get his phone back, a random redditor now has to eat 30 mayonnaise bananas—so there’s that.

And finally, the brave soul who took pictures of all the exposed butt-cracks at a ‘Magic: The Gathering’ tournament (and got banned for it!) just got reinstated. To quote user Sgt_Scruff in that very thread: “What a time to be alive.” Yes indeed, Sgt_Scruff, what a time to be alive. Huzzah.

We also interviewed the man handing out resumes in front of Busch Stadium (the one that front-paged last week) to learn more about his story and just what lengths he’ll go to to support his family. And we released Volume 8 of our Ask an Admin column, titled “Porn and Positivity.”

We’re creating more and more original content on r/upvoted, so please subscribe and let us know how we’re doing and what we should report on next!

  WOULDYOURATHER A Would-You-Rather for the Ages
I’ll take the information. Then I’ll parcel it out into tiny pieces (none of which reveals the actual information), build a religion around it, and rake in trillions.  martifo

User martifo posed this head-scratching “would you rather,” and redditors answered decisively. They also pondered another tough choice: being fluent in every human language vs. being able to speak to animals. (User lordolxinator explained how they’d use their power to get rid of Donald Trump and help pandas make love.)
