Oh man, if I stopped using reddit I would be at least twice as productive as I am. On the downside I'd be significantly less laden with interesting, but useless, facts. Also: if awesome was a thing then this picture would be that thing and I would be looking at it.
If it weren't for reddit, I don't think I'd have any opinions on anything, except maybe pasta sauces. It's just too good at what it does, and if you're at all interested in anything, there's a subreddit for it. My favorite obscure subs are /r/GGGGG (dedicated to and conducted entirely in the letter G), /r/BowlofLemons (self-explanatory, but with a few anarchic bowls of limes) and /r/Counting (they count. There's also /r/CountingUpdates to let you know where the thread counting to infinity is).
Also, thank you very much. I can't think of anything witty to add.
There's a reason they call it the "front page of the internet". Holey Moley, I'd better subscribe to /r/countingupdates before they reach infinity. I don't want to miss that. How do you even find out about these subreddits? Many of them seem like rare albino animals which you see once then never again, but enjoyed the experience while it lasted, except for that vulture that kept circling the sky as if the albino animal was about to die of starvation (unsubscribed to).
Also, no really, if you did commissions I'd commission you. Do you do commissions?
/r/Counting should really be a default subreddit. I think I found most of these through the random button, or through them being mentioned in comments or X-post titles.
A lot of them are like rare albino animals, while /r/funny or /r/gaming are more like elephants or gorillas—interesting, but not something completely novel to see, since they're in practically every zoo. In the end, either the vultures get them, or you discover it's not albino after all, but just a paler subspecies that's growing in number daily before it becomes a common sight. That happened with /r/MildlyInteresting; it was at first truly mildly interesting (someone got a few hundred points for a plastic bag stuck in their tree), but then it got bloated with subscribers and became pretty much /r/pics, /r/funny and /r/wtf rolled into one with only the very extremes left out. It's reached the point where someone made a /r/truemildlyinteresting.
Commissions? I don't right now, primarily because I've no idea at all how they work. I get the basic concept of being paid to do something, but how's this carried out? Paypal? Also, I'm absolutely terrible with deadlines and organization, and I'd be guaranteed to forget something. School is starting soon, too (I'm not telling which! I could be a sixth grader, or an undergrad), so that's not boding well either. But if I could figure out a good way to work it out, I could.
It's sad when things get ruined by popularity</hipster>
Paypal, Western Union, wire-transfer, whatever you like really, you're the boss when it comes to what you will or won't accept. Your reasons for not doing commissions sound similar to mine, so I can totally empathise. Still, a drawing by the fabulous ~NaesOne is one thing that is certainly on my wishlist, for I am a collector of the awesome and interesting. (Not that I keep a physical wishlist or anything, that would be weird).
Sometimes, nothing even changes and you get jaded to the point where it's all disgusting. I was subscribed to /r/atheism for a while, and thought it was full of intelligent, thoughtful people. Then began to get a little annoyed (a post equated studying theology with being a fundamentalist, and therefore stupid) and unsubscribed for a while, but still felt it was an all right place. Then I actually went back to the sub, and said "what the fuck?" Nothing had changed, but all those people who'd seemed intelligent were actually extremely shortsighted and crude. My beliefs hadn't changed at all, just how I handled them. I am now proudly subscribed to /r/circlejerk and /r/TheHallsofSagan, which catalogues the ridiculous, self-righteousSO BRAVE stories /r/atheism tells itself. Stories like this lovely little anecdote here.
I could setup a PayPal account for it, sure. I still have no idea what kinds of prices people usually ask for this stuff. How much would you want to pay? I'm extremely flattered that someone would pay money for my weird-ass sketches. Is there anything in particular you'd want in it?
Yeah, I've long since stopped bothering posting in /r/atheism (and very rarely read the comments). It's only useful for the occasional news posts that manage to get through. I do actually remember reading that particular story on /r/atheism a while ago, and thought "it's somewhat of a nice story, but definitely not true".
I recommend /r/TrueAtheism/ , there seems to be a more intelligent level of discussion, in fact I don't think I've ever seen an image macro on the sub, and people know how to up/downvote correctly. It's a lot more dry than /r/atheism, but that is probably in its favour.
Would it sound too fanboyish to say that I would purchase every single thing in your gallery if I had the ability to?
I almost always go into the comments of every post, and quite a few of them are actually rational, pointing out the OP's mistakes or oversights. The rest, though, are all going off about how Europe is the free, lawless land of wanton, beer-laden public sex and hot tubs in a BMW. They also haven't been to Europe, but that's definitely still the case, and anyone who disagrees is a fundie.
I'm subscribed to /r/Trueatheism as well as /r/Freethought and /r/Skeptic; I don't visit them much, but they show up on my frontpage. /r/Skeptic isn't actually about atheism, though, but more about debunking those Facebook memes—the ones about how we should all panic because as studies show, toothpaste contains flouride, flouride contains the letter U, the letter U stands for Uranium, and Uranium gives you cancer, so spread the word that TOOTHPASTE GIVES YOU CANCER OH MY GOD
I should probably spend more time inside the actual /r/TrueAtheism sub, rather than letting it come to me.
Of course, there's crap everywhere. One of the "controversial" posts in /r/MyLittlePony is an advice animal entitled "Scumbag Twilight," reading:
"CAN LIFT UTAH'S MAJOR
MAKES BABY DRAGON PUT AWAY BOOKS"
or something to that effect, an in they comments they were insisting to people that there's a constellation called Utah's Major.
Nah, not too fanboyish at all. Too fanboyish would be if you bought them all and paper maché'd them onto your body, then ran busy intersections while screaming my username. I might have to deny knowing you, then.
