  • Violence in New York: a redditor in r/NYC watched a man die after getting hit by a subway car. “It was… awful. Blood and intestines covering the platform.” Another in r/Brooklyn was beaten up fighting off muggers. (r/NYC)


  • r/pics comes through.  “Can you help me find this tourist? I snapped this pic riding on a cable car in SF.” The tourist, or at least her doppleganger, is spotted almost immediately. (r/pics)
