Reddit Digest: Nov. 25, 2011
Who’s the only person smarter than a fifth grader, why dogs aren’t fooled by television barks, how to deal with abuse behind bars, and other useful tidbits from the social news site.
Reddit may be a global phenomenon, with 30 million unique visitors and close to 2 billion page views a month, but the social news site showed its American roots yesterday. Overdosed on tryptophan and wine, U.S. redditors took a collective Thanksgiving break yesterday, and the site was relatively quiet.
Thankfully, the site’s international contingent stepped up to the plate. As America gorged on turkey, Reddit continued to buzz.
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 redditor wants to know how he can take on Pelham jail in Georgia, where he says he was briefly incarcerated and abused. Another inmate of the prison recently died in solitary confinement. He was only 17. “You need legal advice, which Reddit cannot give you,” writes one, echoing the general sentiment. (/r/AskReddit).
