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.

  • Tech journalist Paul Miller of The Verge is going offline for a year. As one final hurrah before his descent into the long darkness, he does an AMA. What might his cracking point be? What might pull him back into the Web’s addictive embrace? Porn. (/r/iama)

  • Zach Wahls grew up with two mothers. In 2009, he spoke up about the strength of his family at a hearing in the Iowa House, where representatives were discussing a resolution that would ban same-sex marriage and civil unions. Last night, he filmed an interview at The Daily Show with Jon Stewart—but not before asking redditors to help him think up questions for the host. (Number one: When will Stewart do an AMA?) (/r/AskReddit)

  • What evolutionary pressures caused dinosaurs to get so big? Reddit’s scientists can’t really answer this question with the authority they usually do, because all they’ve got is speculation. But Dashukta’s theory—that it’s largely related to dinosaurs’ avian lungs—is worth reading. (/r/askscience)

  • Speaking of thunder lizards, this photograph is probably the closest modern approximation of what a dinosaur attack would look like. (/r/pics)

  • Reddit, hear the plaintive cry of this librarian: his county library has discontinued the Dewey Decimal System. (But maybe that’s actually a good thing.) (/r/self)

  • Redditors discuss their favorite books. One of the site’s best novelty accounts pops up to illustrate the thread—why read the comments when you can look at a pretty picture? (/r/AskReddit)
