In Wednesday’s Reddit Digest—life as a military doctor
Reddit’s military veterans share their stories, Buzz Aldrin plans an AMA, and a strange type of spam pops up in today’s Reddit Digest.
Want to read Reddit but don’t have the time? Our daily Reddit Digest highlights the most interesting or important discussions from around the social news site—every morning.
A 50-year-old man who stripped naked at a TSA scanner is making the news, but it looks like r/WTF was the first place to actually break the story, thanks to a behind-the-scenes photograph posted by hexum88. (The photo is NSFW, of course.) (/r/WTF)
“Military personnel of Reddit, what misconceptions do civilians have about the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan?” AbiteMolesti asks. The replies from Reddit’s military veterans are fascinating, particularly this thread started by a former military doctor. “Most people think Army doctors sit in bases, I did not,” redditor Wellies writes. “I had a very different war. The way I kept going was to think that I am not going home from this but I will make damn sure my patients are.” (/r/AskReddit)
On a somewhat related note, redditor Killfile delves into how a photographer’s creative lighting use made veterans look more “battle-scarred” than they really are. (/r/DepthHub)
Redditor FentonCrackshell’s 9- and 10-year-old students have a lot of questions about all manner of things: yawning, atoms, the Big Bang. Thankfully, the commenters at r/explainlikeimfive have a lot of answers. (/r/explainlikeimfive)
Bill Corbett, one of the brilliant comedic minds behind Mystery Science Theater 3000 and RiffTrax, answered a whole ton of questions yesterday. Are any types of films that are off-limits to these champions of movie mockery? Here’s Corbett’s answer. (/r/IAmA)
Did I miss something? Let me know in the comments.
