The 20 Biggest Subreddits That Are Still Worth Subscribing To

Most of Reddit is a cesspool of low-effort content, karma-farming bots, and hiveminded users who spew memes and clichés like their lives depended on it. But not all of Reddit is terrible.

If you stick to the smaller niche subreddits—subscribing to the ones that interest you and never venturing into r/all or r/popular—then you’ll find that Reddit can be quite useful and entertaining.

The problems often start surfacing when a subreddit grows too big: unrelated content that appeals to the lowest common denominator starts getting thousands of upvotes, and pretty soon the entire subreddit is derailed by low-effort posts.

But there are a handful of big and popular subreddits that have managed to maintain some semblance of quality despite an explosion in subscribers and popularity.

Here are the biggest subreddits that are still good in their own ways. We’re focusing on communities with 1+ million subscribers, and communities that aren’t just memes and junk.

20. r/subredditoftheday

Subscribers: 1+ million

If you’re always on the prowl for new subreddits to check out, you’ll want to subscribe to r/subredditoftheday. Every day, a new thread is posted that highlights a notable subreddit and why it’s noteworthy.

You might only find a few worthwhile ones every month, but that’s better than nothing—especially since staying subscribed and checking once a day requires zero effort on your part.

19. r/askhistorians

Subscribers: 1+ million

r/askhistorians is one of the most rigorous subreddits when it comes to factual replies that are sourced with real sources, not just blogs and random internet musings.

The moderators do a fantastic job making sure all replies are serious, and they frequently remove comments that are jokes, memes, or unfounded answers without proper sources.

If you often have questions about history, or if you want to learn more about history from the questions others ask, you’ll want to subscribe.

18. r/suggestmeabook

Subscribers: 1+ million

If you burn through books and often find yourself scrambling for more books to add to your reading list, r/suggestmeabook is one of our favorite ways to find new books worth reading.

All you have to do is post a new thread and explain what kinds of books you’re looking for. Any additional information, details, and context will help people provide better recommendations.

And if you’ve read a ton of books and want to help others out with your own recommendations, this can be a fun place to participate!

17. r/podcasts

Subscribers: 1+ million

For avid podcast listeners, r/podcasts is a must-follow community as the largest gathering of podcast fans on Reddit.

Most of the threads come down to people asking for suggestions, people giving their recommendations, or thoughts and discussions about specific podcasts. It’s a great way to find new podcasts.

There’s also the much smaller r/podcast community. You might prefer this one if you prefer a tighter group of people who aren’t as hiveminded when it comes to recommendations and discussion.

16. r/skincareaddiction

Subscribers: 1+ million

While r/skincareaddiction isn’t the perfect subreddit—it’s been the subject of a few controversies in the past—it’s still a solid resource for anyone who’s struggling with skin issues.

You’ll learn how to take care of your skin (especially your face) and help fight off acne outbreaks, dry and flaky skin, oily skin, unsightly blemishes, and more.

A lot of skincare products get namedropped here, and a lot of them are done as stealth marketing by shills. But as long as you keep your eyes peeled and do further research, it’s an informative place.

15. r/bodyweightfitness

Subscribers: 2+ million

Of all the fitness-related subreddits, I’ve enjoyed r/bodyweightfitness the most. They seem to have the most realistic sense of what’s possible in a given timeframe, and there’s little emphasis on equipment. It is, after all, fitness using your own body’s weight.

A lot of the value in this subreddit comes from the guides in the sidebar, but it can be helpful to browse the threads as well. Questions are asked and answered regularly, and you can throw in your own questions if you have trouble grasping bodyweight fitness.

14. r/netflixbestof

Subscribers: 2+ million

Feel like all the good stuff on Netflix has slipped away and now there’s nothing left to watch? r/netflixbestof is a great subreddit to check.

As you can tell from the name, it’s a place where people can talk about the best stuff on Netflix—movies, TV shows, anime series, documentaries, and whatever else.

People will recommend their own favorites and explain why they’re worth checking out, but you can also post your own request threads where people will suggest things to watch based on what you’re looking for. It’s a great way to get more value out of Netflix!

Related: The best Netflix Original movies

13. r/games

Subscribers: 2+ million

There’s no shortage of gaming-related subreddits, but r/games is the most solid option out of all the big ones.

The main feed for this community is comprised of news—articles, videos, and tweets that showcase gaming content. You can discuss each thread in its own comments section, but most of the community discussion happens in the daily megathread.

I like this subreddit because it’s a great way to stay on top of gaming news without having to sift through the memes and low-effort content that plague other gaming communities on Reddit.

12. r/scifi and r/fantasy

Subscribers: 2+ million (r/scifi)
Subscribers: 1+ million (r/fantasy)

For lovers of speculative fiction, these two subreddits should be at the top of your list to check out. r/scifi is all about science fiction and r/fantasy is all about fantasy, and both cover all kinds of media: movies, TV shows, games, but mainly books.

These two communities are equal mixtures of news and discussion. You’ll find everything from blog posts to tweets to trailers to recommendation threads.

11. r/malefashionadvice and r/femalefashionadvice

Subscribers: 3+ million (r/malefashionadvice)
Subscribers: 1+ million (r/femalefashionadvice)

If you want to learn how to dress like an adult—which is not the same thing as dressing up—then r/malefashionadvice and r/femalefashionadvice are both extremely helpful.

Both communities are geared towards people who don’t know much about personal style, so a lot of the advice tends to emphasize basics, fundamentals, and timeless concepts.

You don’t have to obey everything they say. Learn what you can, incorporate the parts you like, and develop your own style.

10. r/boardgames

Subscribers: 3+ million

Are you a fan of board games who’s interested in an active online community about board games but don’t like the general attitude or atmosphere of BoardGameGeek’s forums?

Then r/boardgames is where you want to be. It’s a great place to explore your favorite board games, find new recommendations, make suggestions of your own, and just shoot the breeze about anything that’s even remotely related to board gaming.

While it’s nowhere near as organized as BGG’s forums, the community here is both welcoming and helpful.

Related: The most popular types of board games

9. r/eatcheapandhealthy

Subscribers: 3+ million

If you’re on a tight budget but you still want to eat healthy, r/eatcheapandhealthy is a must-subscribe community.

This place is a treasure trove of helpful and creative advice. You’ll learn all kinds of staple recipes that’ll stretch your dollar and fill you up in healthy ways, along with offbeat tips for unique snacks that don’t cost much and ways to save money while shopping for groceries.

It doesn’t matter if you’ve never cooked your own food before, or if you’re truly on a shoestring budget, or you have no idea what to do. This community is a solid starting point.

Related: The best meal delivery services and weekly meal kits

8. r/buildapc

Subscribers: 4+ million

Whether you’re thinking of building your own PC for the very first time or you’ve already built a few, r/buildapc is the best subreddit for tips and advice for everything related to building computers.

Not sure where to begin? Need help choosing between CPUs or GPUs? Want to know where to buy stuff while saving the most money? Want to share your own knowledge and expertise? Everyone is welcome and you’ll fit right in.

7. r/personalfinance

Subscribers: 14+ million

Are you living paycheck to paycheck? Does money stress you out? Want to take control of your spending but feel overwhelmed? r/personalfinance will get you on your feet and help you become the master over your money rather than its slave.

This subreddit is pretty much a one-stop shop for all things related to money: budgeting, credit cards, debt relief, mortgages, spending habits, retirement savings, tax questions, investing, and more.

There’s a lot to learn, but spend a year lurking in this community and reading through its threads and you’ll soon find yourself a lot more comfortable with money—and building a better life for yourself.

6. r/television

Subscribers: 16+ million

r/television is the all-encompassing subreddit community for TV shows, TV series, mini-series, TV streaming platforms, and more.

People are free to post their own discussion threads—and said discussions can be about anything related to TV—but most of the subreddit’s feed is comprised of articles, videos, and tweets pertaining to TV news.

It’s a great way to stay on top of TV announcements. But I also recommend participating in the weekly megathread where people talk about what they’re currently watching and ask for recommendations on what they should watch next.

5. r/askscience

Subscribers: 17+ million

Have a science-related question? Want answers from qualified scientists and experts, or at least people who know what they’re talking about and can back it up with sources?

r/askscience is great because the moderation team enforces two main policies: answers must be in-depth and supported by peer-reviewed sources whenever possible, and joke replies are not allowed.

You can really ask about any field of science, including biology, chemistry, earth science, medicine, physics, social science, and more. If you’re an expert in a scientific field, you should participate!

4. r/gadgets

Subscribers: 18+ million

r/gadgets is a news aggregation subreddit for all things related to electronic gadgets. There are no text posts allowed here, so discussions can only take place in the comments for links.

And that’s what makes this subreddit good, even with so many subscribers. The moderation team ensures quality control on submitted links, making this an excellent way to stay on top of gadget news without drowning in memes or low-effort posts.

It’s also why r/gadgets is generally higher quality than other popular tech-related subreddits like r/technology.

3. r/explainlikeimfive

Subscribers: 19+ million

r/explainlikeimfive (often abbreviated as “ELI5”) has blown up over the past few years into one of the most popular and most active subreddits on the entire site.

Want to know how something works but you can’t understand the stuff you find on Google? Ask about it here and people will try to dumb it down, explaining the answer in a way that should make sense to even five-year-olds. (Figuratively speaking.)

No question is too stupid to ask, but the sidebar does put forth a few restrictions on the types of questions you can ask, so make sure you read them before asking anything.

2. r/movies

Subscribers: 25+ million

The cousin to r/television, r/movies is the main gathering spot for movie fans to discuss all things related to movies.

The moderation team is pretty active, and they’re quick to create review megathreads whenever new movies are released. These megathreads are fun and interesting, allowing people to share their thoughts while a movie’s buzz is at its buzziest.

The rest of the subreddit is comprised of trailers, news, recommendations, and general discussions about specific movies, genres, or trends in the movie industry.

1. r/videos

Subscribers: 25+ million

If you’ve spent any time on Reddit before, then you’ve likely come across dozens of videos from r/videos already. Simply put, this subreddit is a dumping ground for cool videos.

You’ll find things like:

  • Movie and TV trailers
  • Comedy sketches
  • Video essays about anything and everything
  • How-to videos and explanation videos
  • Memes, parodies, and general nonsense
  • Nostalgic videos from the past

I recommend starting with the top posts of all time in r/videos to see some really cool, really informative, and really weird videos.

r/technology | 7.8 million members

Disclaimer: All views expressed on this blog post are my own and does not represent the views and opinions of my employer.

 

If you are into anything related to tech, you’d know that technology is an overarching topic that could branch into different subtopics that could branch into different subtopics that could branch into different subtopics that could branch into different subtopics... (And no, my keyboard isn’t stuck on ctrl+v).

 

If you haven’t been living under a rock, you might have heard of this thing called Reddit. Explaining it for what it is could be complicated so... it’s fun analogy time! Imagine you’re going to a buffet with different types of cuisine and because you’re adventurous (and, let’s be real, you want to get the most out of your money), you try to get a piece of everything on your plate. Your plate is like Reddit. The food on your plate is all the bits and pieces of the internet. They don’t call Reddit the front page of the internet for nothing.

 

Reddit is a useful website for following any type of news, but we’re only interested in one thing - tech.

 

What are some of the best technology-related subreddits, you ask? Well, you’ve come to the right place. Here are some of the best tech subreddits you should be following right now!

 

best tech subreddits to follow

 

For all things technology.

 

This subreddit talks about… well… technology. From recent news, trends, to even scandals related to the tech world, this subreddit has it all! It can get a little too political in there so click at your own risk!

 

tech

The goal of r/tech is to provide a space dedicated to the intelligent discussion of innovations and changes to technology in our ever-changing world. We focus on high-quality news articles about technology and informative and thought-provoking self-posts.

 

If you have visited both r/technology and r/tech, you’d notice that r/technology should be what r/tech is. Like they said in the description, the moderators of r/tech keep the conversation intelligent while revolving around the steady pace of innovation that we are experiencing nowadays.

 

Personally, I think r/tech isn’t as active as r/technology but sometimes that’s actually a good thing as posts tend to be of a higher quality. 

 

gaming

A subreddit for (almost) anything related to games - video games, board games, card games, etc. (but not sports).

 

All. Things. Video. Games. (and a sprinkle of board games and card games here and there!)

 

At 22.6m members, r/gaming is a community where people share anything and everything about video games. This is also the perfect subreddit to visit when you’re looking for objective takes on newly-released video games, board games, or card games. Moderators of this subreddit is also a bit more lenient when it comes to the content that they let their members post. The first rule of the subreddit is to post gaming-related content, which could mean cosplays, artworks, memes, among other things.

 

pcgaming

A subreddit for discussion of everything PC gaming related.

 

I have to admit that I’m an r/pcgaming addict. In my opinion, I think playing with a mouse and keyboard is much more intuitive compared to playing on a controller. (Or maybe I just suck using the sticks?!)

 

Is this subreddit worth your time? Simple answer is YES! If you're interested in the latest games, reviews, and updates/patches then r/pcgaming is perfect for you! The great thing about this subreddit is that it has zero tolerance when it comes to sugarcoating. If members of the community have played a game and wanted to review it, they will say it how it is. And they don’t just stop at saying how good or bad a game is, they would also talk about the microtransactions that happen in-game, user experience, optimization, and other things that influence the overall gaming experience.

 

tech support

Stumped on a tech problem? Ask the tech support Reddit, and try to help others with their problems as well.

 

This subreddit is heaven-sent. It’s impossible to count the number of times that I have visited this subreddit to troubleshoot my gaming laptop, my phone, and my console. From complex things like ransomware attacks to simple things like uploading photos to your Google account (yes, this is an actual post on r/techsupport) - the community is happy to walk you through the ins and outs of your issue. Very nice mods too!

 

 

Welcome to **Tales From Tech Support**, where we share our stories of *Incredible Feats* of Networking Heroics; * *Tech Troubleshooting* Under the Direst Circumstances; * *Unsolvable Problems* Cracked by Sheer Genius and/or Pure Luck; * *Moral Support* after Having Dealt with Difficult Clients; * And of course, **Stupid User Stories!** We've got a bit of a lull in the queue just now, so kick back, grab a cold one, and share your best tales among friends here at TFTS!

 

This subreddit is arguably one of the most hilarious subreddits to ever exist! Don’t believe me? One of the most popular posts of all time (15.9k upvotes, 1k comments, at the time of writing) is about a client asking IT support to fix “Google Bing.” Yes.

pcmasterrace

Welcome to the official subreddit of the PC Master Race. In this subreddit, we celebrate and promote the ultimate gaming and working platform. Ascent to a level that respects your eyes, your wallet, your mind, and your heart. Ascend to… the PC Master race.

 

Okay, I might be a little biased but I absolutely love this subreddit! It’s full of great humor that often takes the mickey out of consoles and how unpredictable they can be. *cough* Red Ring of Death *cough*

 

The community at r/pcmasterrace is helpful, informative, and generous. This subreddit is known for giveaways and random acts of gaming kindness!

 

By the way, this subreddit wins the award for most creative tagline EVER.

 

“May our framerates be high and our temperatures low.”

 

build a pc

Planning on building a computer but need some advice? This is the place to ask! r/buildapc is a community-driven subreddit dedicated to custom PC assembly. Anyone is welcome to seek the input of our helpful community as they piece together their desktop.

 

I have nothing but praise for this subreddit. I have had nothing but good interactions and overall great experience with this community. Everyone has been helpful and patient with any question I asked. A random stranger from r/buildapc once spent at least two hours walking me through the different types of video cards, what an SSD is, and what types of processors are compatible with what I wanted to do with my machine. All for FREE. I told him I wanted to Venmo him for his time but he said he really just enjoys putting a PC together. What a human being.

 

So if you’re torn between getting a RTX 2060, 2070, or even the 3060 - this subreddit is for you!

 

web design

A community dedicated to all things web design. For more development-related questions, try r/webdev.

 

This subreddit is pretty straightforward as it talks about web design and web design related issues.

 

According to WhatPixel, “You’ll find lots of beginner posts (in r/web_design) asking how to set up servers or what to do after buying a domain name. But for all of these beginner threads, you’ll still find plenty of genuinely interesting questions and cool webapps. If you’re a web designer this is a must-subscribe community. It’s very active with many professionals lurking in the shadows. If you have any questions about the web design industry or how to make it as a web designer, this is the community to ask.”

 

 

A community dedicated to all things web development: both front-end and back-end. For more design-related questions, try r/web_design.

 

If you’re a budding web developer, r/webdev is the perfect subreddit for you! The community is helpful when it comes to learners that are trying to make it in the web development field. This subreddit covers the three main specializations of web development: front-end, back-end, and full-stack.

 

programming

A subreddit for all questions related to programming in any language.

 

At first glance, the subreddit already showers you with a lot of information regarding the basics of programming. The subreddit’s pinned post is mainly geared towards people that are new to programming or are new to the subreddit. Doesn’t matter where you fall in those categories, the subreddit surely cares to you!

 

So, if you’re trying to learn about C++, JavaScript, or Python on your own - this subreddit’s the perfect place to start!

 

Special mentions:

r/Android | 1.7 million members

Android news, reviews, tips, and discussions about rooting, tutorials, and apps. Generic discussion about phones/tablets is allowed, but technical-support and carrier-related issues should be asked in their respective subreddits!

 

At 1.7m members, it would be a massive injustice to leave out r/Android! The subreddit talks about anything and everything about Android as an OS, Android news, and Android as a business. The moderators of this subreddit also own a variety of gadgets that carry the Android OS so you wouldn’t run out of references.

 

If you have any questions about your Android device, no matter what brand you have, this is the perfect subreddit for all of your Android needs!

 

 

r/apple | 995 thousand members

An unofficial community to discuss Apple devices and software, including news, rumors, opinions, and analysis pertaining to the company located at One Apple Park Way.

 

While there is a dedicated r/iOS subreddit, it’s worth noting that r/apple is much more active and has a much more all-encompassing vision compared to the r/iOS subreddit. For me, the best use of the r/apple subreddit is for the latest Apple news and its daily tech support thread. The moderators do a great job on monitoring questions about the members as well as provide advice on troubleshooting for devices that are acting up.

 

If you have any questions about your Apple device, this is the perfect subreddit for you!

 

r/msp | 41.5 thousand members

Resource for IT Managed Services Providers

 

For an MSP like ourselves, we appreciate subreddits like r/msp. Why? Because it gives us a glimpse of what the industry is like and what people are currently talking about! We’ve been a member of r/msp for about three months now and while we love the latest news about the managed services industry, we also love to see people posting about their issues and other people contributing to solving them!

 

If you’re into managed IT services or you own a managed IT services provider, and you’re not subscribed to r/msp then you’re honestly missing out.

 

Here at ETech 7, we love to freshen up our content now and then. If you enjoyed this type of content, make sure to let us know by emailing us at [email protected] or by following our socials.

The best subreddits you should subscribe to in 2021

Reddit — the self-proclaimed “front page of the internet” — has something for everybody.  Whether your interests are popular and mainstream or niche and obscure, we can pretty much guarantee that you’ll find a community of other enthusiasts on Reddit.

No joke — there are vibrant communities dedicated to everything from appreciating the beauty of statistics to curating clips of people doing things they immediately regret. So rest assured, there’s something on Reddit you’ll like. The trick is wading through all the nonsense and finding the good stuff — so we compiled a modest list of the best subreddits Reddit has to offer.

r/Futurology

Like reading about technology, but don’t care about Apple’s latest earnings report or the latest Facebook controversy? Skip your visit to /r/technology and head on over to Futurology. It’s all about the biggest, sexiest, and most ambitious technologies that humanity is currently working on.

r/Nonononoyes

In this subreddit, people post clips of times when things appear to be going horribly wrong, but then disaster is somehow averted at the last minute. This can be anything — cars narrowly avoiding catastrophic accidents, miraculous recoveries from athletes, or even animals escaping from predators. You never know what you’ll find in this sub, but it’s always exciting.

r/ReverseAnimalRescue

This one is fun for the whole family. Basically, people take videos and GIFs of people rescuing animals, then run them in reverse to make it look like they’re actually putting them in harm’s way. And since you’re just watching a reversed clip and not a true depiction of the actual event, you don’t have to feel guilty about laughing when the guy stuffs a kitten down a sewer drain, lowers a kangaroo into a swimming pool, or drops a bear onto a trampoline and sends him flying up into a tree.

r/NatureIsFuckingLit

Photo of brightly colored peacock sitting on ground

There are a lot of good animal-related subs on Reddit, but r/NatureIsFuckingLit is definitely the best place to go if you’re after fascinating, awe-inspiring, and downright impressive footage of nature. It’s basically Earth’s greatest hits, conveniently presented in a collection of pictures, GIFs, and short video clips.

r/Gifs

We tried not to put too many default subreddits on this list, but r/gifs is too great to overlook. As one of Reddit’s largest and most active subs, it’s filled with a nearly endless torrent of content from all over the web. And that’s what makes it great. On any given day, r/gifs offers a glimpse into what’s happening not only on the internet, but also in the world at large. If something important, amazing, or memorable happened today, you can bet that a relevant clip of the event will end up in this sub. It’s all here, in the quickest and most easily digestible format possible.

r/Instant_regret

If you like clips of people doing stupid and misguided things, then immediately regretting their decisions, then this sub is for you. It’s glorious — you can basically sit back and marvel at how dumb some people are, while simultaneously feeling better about your own decision-making skills.

r/PhotoshopBattles

Even if you’re not good enough at Photoshop to participate in the “battles,” this sub is definitely worth a visit. The premise is pretty simple: Users submit pictures that are ripe for Photoshopping, and then other members edit and remix the images before posting them in the comment thread. The results are almost always funny, and some are downright impressive.

r/MemeEconomy

This sub is pretty funny. Basically, users talk about memes like they’re stocks, and facetiously try to predict which memes will become popular (or fall out of favor), often with overly enthusiastic, trading floor-style exclamations such as “BUY BUY BUY!” or “SELL SELL SELL!” It’s mostly a jokefest, but buried beneath all the meta-hipster snark and satire, there’s also some good social commentary on trendsetting, virality, and internet culture. Then again, maybe we’re just reading into it too much.

r/IAmA

Probably the most famous subreddit, r/IAmA is a place for people from all walks of life to do informal Q&A sessions. AMAs — short for “ask me anything”– attract all sorts of characters, and are a great way to get firsthand knowledge about what it’s like to be a firefighter, a corporate whistleblower, a NASA scientist, etc. In recent years, the subreddit has even become famous for celebrity AMAs. If you want to hear Jeff Bridges’ advice on how to make a marriage last, or for some reason want to ask Patrick Stewart whether he’d prefer to fight a horse-sized duck or 100 duck-sized horses, those are opportunities you’ll find on r/IAmA.

r/askscience

Like history, science can be a difficult subject to study on your own. As such, why not seek the wisdom of experts? Answers on /r/AskScience are backed up by peer-reviewed sources, ensuring they will be trustworthy, and the rules stifle any attempts to take things off-topic or spread misinformation. Whether you have questions on physics, biology, or any other aspect of the natural world, there is likely someone on this subreddit willing to provide an informed answer. A knowledgeable community and strict rules also help keep AskScience one of the most informative, civil forums on Reddit.

r/DataIsBeautiful

Visualization is a big part of conveying statistics to an audience of laymen. Data sets can be difficult to parse if one is not trained in statistical analysis, but a pie chart or line graph can communicate information about trends quickly and easily. For people who are enthusiastic about statistics or those who just want to grasp information at a glance, r/DataIsBeautiful is a great subreddit to subscribe to. The charts and graphs are usually of high quality, both aesthetically and methodologically. The subreddit rules also require that visualizations must link to the corresponding data sources, so it’s easy to scrutinize the methodology behind the stats. The subject matter covers a wide array of interests, including everything from charts of climate trends to statistical breakdowns of the latest television shows.

r/listentothis

The internet has enabled a greater proliferation of music than ever before. From pop icons to obscure bands, it’s all theoretically just a few clicks away. But with so much info flowing, the signal-to-noise ratio can be horrendous. How can one find musical pearls without having to wade through so much muck? Audiophiles looking for music off the beaten path will find themselves at home on r/listentothis, a community for sharing songs and artists. Posts span a variety of genres, some of which can be quite odd indeed. If terms like “jazzcore” and “djent” intrigue you, dive down the rabbit hole of r/listentothis.

r/Books

rows and rows of bookshelves filled with books

On r/Books, you can find the latest information on popular books and authors, as well as discussions on literature from Homer to Jonathan Franzen. The subreddit regularly features Q&A sessions with notable authors. Perhaps most importantly, r/Books follows the Sage’s Rule of Reddit, banning memes and other low-effort posts and requiring that comments maintain a basic level of human decency. Bookworms with an internet connection will find few online communities as nice as r/Books to satisfy their literary needs.

r/TheOcho

Remember that running gag from the movie Dodgeball, where the dodgeball championship tournament aired on a fictional sports channel called “ESPN8: The Ocho“? Well, somebody decided to take that joke and run with it on Reddit. It’s a subreddit where users post video clips and GIFs of obscure sporting events you’ve probably never heard of. Browse through its posts, and you’ll find stuff like “shovel boarding” and “bike football.”

SFW porn subreddits

Don’t let the awkward naming scheme scare you off. These subreddits provide high-quality photographs covering a variety of subjects. Abandoned buildings, wildlife, machinery, and of course, food; there are subs for all these and more. Whether you’re a photography enthusiast or simply someone who wants some nice backgrounds for your desktop, these subreddits are a treasure trove.

r/Games

Although not as popular as r/Gaming, r/Games is a far better place to go if you want a discussion about video games. This is largely due to its strong moderation. The result is a forum primarily composed of articles and discussions about the gaming industry and the technical aspects of the medium. Like many video game communities, r/Games can be prone to occasional bouts of mass hysteria, but strict rules and moderation keep things civil overall.

r/HoldMyRedbull

This is arguably the best of the HoldMy[drink] subfamily. The granddaddy of them all was r/HoldMyBeer, which is a community dedicated to gifs/videos of drunk people trying things they probably shouldn’t attempt — all while visibly intoxicated. The popularity of this first sub inspired people to create various offshoots — including ones like r/HoldMyCosmo (the same idea, but specifically for videos of women), and r/HoldMyJuiceBox (kids trying and failing to do things).  r/HoldMyRedbull is slightly different, and features people doing extreme, death-defying stunts — and usually succeeding.

r/BrandNewSentence

If you want an extra dash of off-the-wall humor in your life, subscribe to this community. The premise is that people share clips — usually from social media posts and news articles — that contain sentences/phrases so outlandish and creative that it’s likely that they’ve never been written before. If it’s your first visit, sort by Top>All Time and have yourself a good scroll — we guarantee you’ll enjoy it.

r/PraiseTheCameraMan

There are plenty of subreddits dedicated to sharing incredible video footage, but this is one of our favorites. Instead of just focusing on the content of the video, this sub is all about upvoting outstanding camera work. This means it’s effectively a compilation of jaw-droppingly gorgeous clips that’ll make you go “What?! How the hell did they get that shot?!”

r/battlestations

Acer Predator XB3 Gaming Monitor review

Battlestations are desktop computer setups, and this subreddit is filled with ideas about how to arrange your own desktop computer space for maximum beauty, efficiency, and coolness. While many of these setups are focused on gaming, that’s far from the only thing you’ll find. There are plenty of people showing off their office computers, at-home workstations, and systems meant more for general entertainment. It’s a great place to find inspiration, new gadgets to add to your computer setup, or solutions for fitting a great battlestation in a smaller space.

r/todayilearned

TodayILearned is filled with interesting facts that can easily take you down research rabbit holes for hours, providing readers with bite-sized facts that, well, lots of people don’t know. Much of it is science and history, but topics cover all kinds of fields. If you like the idea of learning new stuff every day, this is the place you should be.

r/RenewableEnergy

This subreddit is a great place to stop by and learn the latest about environmental technology, new green ideas, super-smart sustainability efforts, and similar topics. While much of the subreddit is devoted to the latest regulations, environmental startups, and the latest green technology, you can also find answers to common sustainability questions and much more.

r/Showerthoughts

We’ve all had those experiences where we drift off in the shower and have a peculiar — perhaps even profound — thought. This subreddit is made to share such thoughts. It’s not really about facts, but about unique (sometimes funny and often thought-provoking) perspectives that can make you rethink things.

r/100yearsago

You can use this subreddit to view posts about what happened 100 years ago. History buffs will always find something new to learn each day, and they can have a ton of fun browsing this forum full of fascinating photos, quotes, newspaper clippings, and more from a century ago (currently the 1920s, of course, which has alot to offer). If you have a passion for history or just want to bone up on your trivia, this is the subreddit for you.

r/nextfuckinglevel

The name itself basically covers the entire vibe of this subreddit. If you need a pick-me-up or a bit of inspiration, r/nextfuckinglevel will truly deliver.
