Thursday’s Reddit Digest—”Community” star Gillian Jacobs double dips
A grandma gets a subpoena for pirating porn, the Game Theory of Batman, and why lightning bolts aren’t straight.
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.
Redditors want to know: Why is President Obama keeping a Yemeni journalist in prison? “Remember in 2009, when the USA launched a drone strike in Yemen and both governments lied and said it was a strike by Yemeni security forces? Yeah, the journalist who blew the lid on that is currently a political prisoner. Even worse, Obama personally requested he not be released,” madcat033 writes. (/r/worldpolitics)
An article on Game Theory, John Nash, and why the Joker is our savior leads to a fascinating r/science discussion. “i would sign up for a master’s level class in ‘game theory of batman,'” rats_in_boxes concludes. Who wouldn’t? (/r/science)
A porn company has apparently served a subpoena to this redditor’s grandma, who “is on oxygen and can barely send an e-mail without help,” for illegally downloading porn. You are not your IP. (/r/AskReddit)
Lucas Gonzalez, the three-year-old whom Reddit rallied to support last December, underwent his bone marrow transplant yesterday. He’s doing fine—as fine as a sick little kid can do. Here’s the full update from the family, and the discussion on r/Assistance). (/r/Assistance)
You won’t enjoy this thread. But you should read it, anyway. At, r/TwoXChromosomes women share stories of rape and sexual assault, prompted by one redditors submission to the Unbreakable Project. (/r/TwoXChromosomes)
Both of Jacobs’ posts were more popular than Pulitzer Prize winner Jesse Eisinger’s AMA. So was an interview with an LED lighting expert. Hey, LEDs are cool and all, but that’s a little disappointing, Reddit. Especially considering Eisinger was no slouch. (/r/IAmA)
