    President did an AMA on Reddit today

    Not really bringing it up as a political topic, but move it if necessary (and I can't link it from my phone).

    I can only imagine all the Reddit mods still twitching from the itchy trigger fingers as they waited for the assault from the trolls. I'd love to see all the deleted posts (or maybe not), or at least find out how many benign posts went down in flames. I'm sure their mods are still jumpy from the experience!

    Let me guess what the average reddit user wants to now.


    What is your view on legalizing marijuana?

    What is your view on Internet freedom?

    Whats you beer recipe?



    All the important topics.../

    He answered the last 2... Well he said the beer recipe is coming out soon, and of course is pro freedom. The first was probably asked but I don't think it was addressed.

    I didn't read much, but I think the grammar police made an appearance.

    someone with a unique perspective (say, someone who is blind, worked an interesting job, or is somewhat famous) will give a brief intro or explanation of their "uniqueness" and then answer questions from the Redditors. Some of them are pretty interesting. This one had a lot of good questions, but he only answered for like 30 minutes - I think I saw 8-10 responses? Understandable, of course, but was hoping for a few more!

    It's a website where people post pictures of cats hoping people will give them upvotes that don't mean anything.

    You must be getting lazy and just glancing over all the threads with cats. I see them all the time. This is probably my favorite one:

    I'm not aware of any betting capabilities, they do have frozen yogurt though.
