This week, most of Georgia was a panic after receiving
barely an inch like 30 feet of snow. Many cars wound up in ditches on the side of the road, including some pretty heavy duty haulers. One driver of a Dodge Challenger was unfazed though, as he sped bravely through two semi-trucks careening off the road. If any major Hollywood studio out there needs a stunt driver, you know who to call...
He says it all started from one Titanic photo but quickly escalated from there. When redditor mmsspp decided to recreate some of the best scenes from Hollywood blockbusters with boss's dog, Wrigley, he proved that having a pet-friendly office can be awesome...awesomely distracting!
Look out! Here comes another meme, and this one's a doozy! Beerdrummer posted a picture of his wife as a child on Reddit and it went a little out of control. Nothing like an included caption like, "My wife looked like a 60-year-old woman as a child," to be the catalyst of something amazing (though looking at the photo, I'm not sure the obvious could have been stated any more clearly).
What an amazing story of one's rise to fame...it's too bad she'll only ever know about it if she finally convinces her son to come over and get her Prodigy account to work.
In the wake of today's fatal shootings at the Washington Navy Yard that left at least a dozen of people dead, several Redditors apparently began organizing a manhunt in an attempt to identify the shooter under the newly launched /r/findnavyyardshooters subreddit, though it was promptly banned from the site after many ignored the community's only rule which stated "NO PERSONAL INFORMATION ABOUT LEADS UNLESS YOU'RE REALLY SURE." While many seem to agree with the site administrator's decision, reminding themselves of the infamous sleuthing that took place earlier this year during the Boston Marathon bomber manhunt, others on the site have raised questions over whether it was meant to be satirical from the beginning, given the tongue-in-cheek tone of several posts (like this one) that made their way onto the subreddit prior to its removal.

In following Californian congresswoman Zoe Lofgren's crowdsourced path to legislation, U.S. Representative Darrell Issa is asking for Reddit's help to draft a bill known as The Internet American Moratorium Act (IAMA), which would create a two-year halt on any new rules or regulations governing the Internet (see highlighted portion). For more info, check out the congressman's AMA (Ask Me Anything) discussion on Reddit, which will begin tomorrow on Wednesday, November 28, at 1030 a.m. (EST).
