Reddit Digest
Russia's "Valley of Death," Matt Damon's strangest fans, and imaginary Atlético Madrid jerseys made real—all in today's Reddit Digest.  

With 30 million unique visitors and close to 2 billion page views a month, it's safe to say a lot happens on the link-sharing and discussion site Reddit every day. There are more than 90,000 sections on the site; a single discussion alone can sometimes attract more than 10,000 comments.

How can anyone keep track of it all? Our daily Reddit Digest highlights the most interesting or important discussions from around the site—every morning.

  • A photographer in r/photography issued a screed against pretension in his field, and says the end of it as a profession is nigh. “If you want to be a photographer—wonderful, good, yes, do that, I can't recommend it enough. But I do not think we will last.” (r/photography)
  • After a redditor laments his only way of getting online is through a cracked Android phone, a kind soul in r/favors gives him a free computer. (r/favors)
  • r/TodayILearned has been on fire lately. Some gems: Scientology creator L. Ron Hubbard accidentally fired on Mexico when he was in the Navy. One April Fool’s joke involved lighting hundreds of tires in a dormant volcano. Russia has a “Valley of Death” that, while not radioactive, causes symptoms like radiation poisoning.  Michael Jordan’s famous “Jumpman” logo is actually of him, not dunking, but performing a ballet move.

  • A redditor in r/soccer Photoshops some dream jerseys for Atlético Madrid. Not only did the Spanish media report these as real—and controversial—new jerseys, an Asian factory made bootleg replicas. (r/soccer)

Angry woman riding Splash Mountain was born to be a meme
Splash Mountain sucks. It’s, like, six seconds of actual ride. It features the jankiest animatronics in the entire amusement park. The line is always way too long, and there’s a chance you’ll spend the rest of the day soaked in that dirty, recycled log-flume water. It’s a bottom-tier attraction propped up by the same weird nostalgia that convinces people the Haunted Mansion is still a worthy endeavor in 2016. Seriously, fuck Splash Mountain.
