Here's 5 interesting subreddits.

Reddit is an interesting place. You've probably heard of it and even used it, but check out these 5 interesting subreddits. You just might learn something cool.

1. /r/wicked_edge

This subreddit is dedicated to the art of wet shaving. This type of shaving usually uses older shaving gear, such as safety razors and straight razors. I've switched to using a safety razor myself, and love it so far. It's much, MUCH cheaper than buying all those multi-blade cartridges and much more satisfying.

2. /r/MechanicalKeyboards

Keyboards used to be based on mechanical switches, but most modern keyboards you buy use a rubber membrane under the keys. Pressing this down onto the circuit board completes a circuit. Recently, mechanical keyboards have been a roaring comeback. People like the way they feel and sound much better than membrane keyboards. I plan on getting one myself soon.

3. /r/Futurology

This subreddit is dedicated to study, speculation and information on future technology of all kinds. A very interesting read.

4. /r/privacy

Privacy is a pretty big subject right after, post-NSA revelations. There's a lot of really useful information here on the subject.

5. /r/unexpected

A pretty funny read, a lot of stuff that's... what... unexpected. Just note that the links should be considered NSFW, whether they're marked that way or not.

There's my list. Did I miss any? Let me know what you think in the comments below.

Game Theory: Are Gamers Killing Video Games?

I've linked this on Twitter, but I wanted to post it here to make sure I can get as many people to see it as possible.

Whenever a sales report comes out that shows Nintendo isn't doing so well with their Wii U, I think about this video. Gamers everywhere shout "WE WANT NEW STUFF!" then when Nintendo gives us something new, gamers shout "THAT'S TOO DIFFERENT! WE WANT THE SAME STUFF!"

This video explores the subject better than I can, so I won't rant any more. Just watch it. Let me know what you think.

A list of things that should never be said online ever again.

It really is time for these to die, don't you think? A man can dream...
