What Happened to r/place?

The internet has the power to unite and tear us apart on a whim. It is an ongoing social and technological experiment that changes every day. Of all the communities on the internet, Reddit is among the most popular. You can find a subreddit for almost any topic you can think of, niche or otherwise. Into cars? There’s r/cars for that. Into trees warping around man-made objects? There’s r/TreesSuckingOnThings. But today, we’ll be taking a look at a subreddit that took the internet by storm this pa

2025: The World Enslaved by a Virus

This is the worst film I have ever seen Though there are many bad Christian films, this film is universally hated by Christians and non-Christians alike. There is a long-running scare tactic that has been perpetuated by conservatives. It’s the idea that the government is somehow going to ban Christianity. Why? There is no logical answer to that, but this film attempts to give us an answer anyway. Add COVID-19 into the mix and you have the perfect shit-storm for a truly awful movie. The acting

The QAnon Queen of Canada

“I am the head of state, commander in chief and head of government and queen of Canada replacing Queen Elizabeth the second of England who has now been executed for crimes against humanity,” Romana Didulo states in a video posted to YouTube on Sept. 17. There isn’t much information about her childhood or adolescence. It’s as if she appeared out of thin air and began spouting nonsense. Where did she come from? What was her childhood like? Does she have any friends or family? She has amassed app

The Fall of Ice Poseidon

Live-streaming pioneer “Ice Poseidon” tragically ended his career a few days ago when it was revealed that he had scammed his fans out of $500,000 via a crypto scheme. When confronted on the issue, Ice Poseidon admitted to what he had done but showed no remorse. Ice Poseidon told “Coffeezilla” he could give the money back but had no intention to because he was looking out for himself. So, who is this lanky idiot? To understand that, we need to take a trip back to 2015. Buckle up, buckaroo. Pa

What the Fuck is Wordle?

Everything I’ve learned about Wordle, I’ve learned against my will If you’ve spent any time on Twitter during the last few weeks, you’ve undoubtedly come across a World post on your feed. With the recent acquisition of Wordle by The New York Times — for an undisclosed seven-figure sum — it’s about time we looked into this cultural phenomenon. According to Wikipedia: “Wordle is a web-based word game developed by Welsh-born software engineer Josh Wardle. Players have six attempts to guess a five

Do Nintendo Hate Their Fans?

I fondly remember conquering new worlds in Super Mario 64, when I was younger. What a time to be alive. With titles like Mario, Donkey Kong, and Zelda, Nintendo has undoubtedly given us some of the greatest intellectual properties of all time. Nintendo gave me some of the fondest memories of my childhood. So, why does it feel like they don’t give a shit? How can a company responsible for so much happiness treat their fans the way they do? Let’s have a look. Nintendo is notorious for striking You

Why the Internet Collectively Dunked on Aaron Rodgers

QUICK HISTORY: Rodgers was passed over by 49ers during the 2005 NFL Draft, with San Francisco selecting Utah’s Alex Smith, instead. This resulted in Rodgers being drafted by the Packers, a team he never wanted to play for. When asked whether he was disappointed that the 49ers didn’t draft him, Rodgers provided a response that is sure to haunt him until his dying days. Question: “How disappointed are you that you will not be a 49er?” Answer: “Not as disappointed as the 49ers will be that they

How to be Successful on Medium

You don’t have to write an article everyday As far as I know, there is no evidence to suggest that daily posting is more effective than occasionally posting. This comes down to the “quantity vs quality” argument. I’ve been writing as much as I can and I think you can do both. Some articles take longer to write, while some I can write in an hour or two. Some articles are less than 500 words, while others are closer to a thousand. Make an effort to engage with other people Engaging with other w

My First 30 Days on Medium

I’ve been writing on Medium for a month now and I thought I’d share my experience with all of you. I published my first article on the 15th of December, 2021. Since then, I’ve gained around 90 followers and written a total of 25 articles, excluding this one. I suppose it’s a marathon, not a sprint. I haven’t hit 100 followers yet. I’m not sure what to think of that. There seems to be a lot of you on here that have done it in a week, or so you claim. Maybe I’m doing something wrong? I don’t know

The Rise of r/Antiwork and The Great Resignation

If you’ve spent any amount of time on Reddit lately, you’ve probably come across the r/antiwork subreddit. It’s even been featured in the news. But what’s all the fuss about? What do they want? First, let’s look at what the movement is about. The subreddit can be divided into two groups: the progressive far-left and the Liberals. Old vs. new. Idlers vs reformists. While reformists want better working conditions and higher wages, Idlers want modern work as we know it, abolished. Critics of the

Top Things to do in Vancouver

Being a native Vancouverite, I think I am qualified to speak on the topic of travel activities in my city. Do I like Vancouver? It’s complicated. But every year thousands of hopefuls flock here to look at the mountains, look at the water, and look at the trees. They eventually leave when they realize how expensive everything is here and that the scenery doesn’t cover the living costs. It doesn't help that Vancouver is known as the "boring city." Anyway, here are the top things to do in Vancouver

On Being a Canucks Fan

I remember getting a Kirk McLean goalie mask miniature with my McDonald's Happy Meal. I still have my hockey card collection from all those years ago as well. If you grew up in Canada, chances are you fell in love with hockey at some point. If you grew up in the ’90s, you probably spent a great deal of time playing outside. I loved to play street hockey with the kids on my block. I’d go outside after school and bang my hockey stick on the asphalt alleyway. One by one, kids spilled out of their h

The Future of Driving

Modern driving feels slightly archaic. We stay between lines painted on the road and we all agree to obey the rules of the road. But what happens when one of us doesn’t? Accidents occur. How can we make driving safer, cleaner, and less chaotic? In this article, we will explore the current state of driving as well as the future of automobiles in general. Insurance is expensive. With driverless cars, individuals would no longer have to pay for insurance. The onus would be on the companies operati
