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.

  • Lula Mott can you tell you what she was doing in World War I (getting in fights, apparently) and that women’s fashion was most stylish in the ‘30s and ’40s. She’s 100 years old and answered every question redditors asked her yesterday. (/r/IAmA)

  • Speaking of the elderly, here’s an old-time redditor’s long story about the way things were. ” It was small enough that you’d see the same names posting over and over again; you could get a sense of people’s personalities over time from their posts,” nostrademons writes. (/r/AskReddit)

  • This may be the most detailed legal analysis of the Trayvon Martin case you will read all week. (/r/DepthHub)

  • American media is struggling to understand how Robert Bales could have killed 16 Afghans. But “when Muslims kill Americans, the reason is simply: primitive, hateful evil.” That article is a hot topic at r/TrueReddit and r/worldpolitics over the past day. But EatATaco says we shouldn’t direct let this discrepancy lead to hatred for the media. “I think everyone needs to look at this and realize that they do this themselves. It is human nature to justify the actions of those on your side and demonize your enemies . . . demonizing the humans behind the media for doing this stems from the same desire of those people to demonize islamic militants.” (/r/TrueReddit)

  • This is how to properly transport trucks. (/r/China)

  • What happens to the brain during orgasm? (/r/askscience)

  • Reddit thinks Billy Nye the Science Guy is an asshole, and there’s apparently a whole bunch of anecdotal evidence to prove so. I think it’s time for a Bill Nye AMA. (/r/IAmA)

Did I miss something? Let me know in the comments.
