10 STRANGEST Subreddit Communities That Actually Exist

– [Matt] Oh man, if you
thought the internet was a weird place before,
yeah, keep watching. These are the 10 strangest
subreddit communities that actually exist. Number 10 is Enlightened Birdmen. Enlightened Birdmen is an
extremely weird subreddit where members of the bird species go to post Birdman propaganda and perform bird calls with their peers. Created on February 25th, 2013, the best part about the subreddit is that these so-called
Birdmen are in an imaginary war with the members of a rival
subreddit, Mad Mudmen. They fight for enlightenment and occasionally invade
each other’s subreddits with posts about hostage
taking or false alliances. The Birdmen have recruited
more than 43,500 members, vastly outnumbering the 7,800-plus Mudmen. A typical post will be
written in all caps, contain bird calls like
caw, scraw, or scree, and will involve
militaristic-style subject matter. The rules include lines like,
“Respect the All-Father,” “Destroy disobedient humans,” and, “Defend the hilltops at all costs.” This bizarre subreddit can be lots of fun, whether you’re with them or against them. Number nine is Where Did the Soda Go? On October 22nd, 2012,
a goofy infomercial gif was posted to Reddit’s /r/funny
and sparked a discussion about taking clips of
clumsy infomercial actors out of context. One example was a man
badly faking an accident with his food tray and dumping his snacks and soda all over himself. User NHFVX notice that
the soda on the tray seemed to vanish, prompting him to ask, “Where did the soda go?” Thus began the subreddit of contextually inaccurate
infomercial clips, Where Did the Soda Go? Currently, it has more
than 463,000 subscribers and is filled with gifs depicting how bad infomercial actors are at life. The best posts on the page are the clips that fit perfectly with their
new, more absurd contexts. For example, an elderly man accidentally dropping
his cane down the stairs in an infomercial becomes,
“The cane must die.” As long as there are
infomercials with bad actors, there will be new material
in this truly odd group. Number eight is Water
Flows over the Milk Jug at Just the Right Angle
to Create a Bubble. This subreddit has an unnecessarily
long and confusing name and involves something
that is mildly interesting, yet that mild interest
has gained the attention of more than 5,400 subscribers
since the page’s creation on January 28th, 2015. Despite what the title suggests, Water Bubbles posts aren’t exclusive to those created over milk jugs. All interesting homemade
or public fountain bubble images and videos are accepted. The group’s main intention is to simply appreciate water physics and how cool it is when
you’re doing dishes and you accidentally discover that you made a watery force field by holding a spoon under the tap. The extra long and messy
acronym name has caused issues for the group, with members
forgetting what it means and wondering why they keep seeing water flow posts on their homepage. Number seven is Monks Looking at Beer. Established on April 24th, 2015, the 23,800-plus community members of the subreddit Monks Looking at Beer have taken it upon themselves to document the amazingly
frequent occurrences in art and reality of monastery monks who examine their alcoholic beverages. The most common appearances
seem to be in old paintings of brown robe-clad monks taking great pleasure
in viewing their ales, with no modern smartphones or tablets to steal their attention otherwise. As the rules of the subreddit state, pictures of broken mugs or spilled beer must be tagged as unsafe for viewing. The use of all caps, memes, and rude language won’t fly here, much like an actual monastery, and will earn you a warning if used. Listening to medieval era monastery chants while browsing is encouraged, since it lends more authenticity to the monk watching
beer watching experience. Number six is Trees Sucking at Things. Not to be confused with
Trees Sucking on Things, Trees Sucking at Things is a fairly self-explanatory subreddit consisting of image
posts of different trees which suck at being or
doing certain things. Attributing blame to a tree might be a difficult thing in reality, but the 33,500-plus members
of this tree shaming community have found many creative ways of drawing attention to their failures. Since its creation on July 18th, 2012, Trees Sucking at Things will
allow photographs of trees as well as photoshopped images of trees. Some posts involve trees that suck based on where or how they’ve grown, while lots of other
posts involve odd growths on their trunks which
look like human anatomy and lead to them being blamed
for human-like inadequacies. If you thought trees could do no harm, check out Trees Sucking at Things, the community for disrespecting nature’s apparently worst
plant-based life form. Number five is Cucumbers Scaring Cats. Cucumbers Scaring Cats is the subreddit dedicated to sharing gifs and video clips of cats getting startled or intimidated by garden variety cucumbers. It isn’t exactly common knowledge that cats find cucumbers
unpredictable and threatening. But weirdly enough, it’s common enough that there’s a large subreddit community built around the topic. With upwards of 30,600 members, tons of dark green
gourd-fearing scaredy-cats have been shared on the site since the subreddit’s
creation on July 17th, 2015. The strangely hilarious
posts usually involve people testing the theory
by placing a whole cucumber on the ground behind their cat while it’s eating or distracted. The reactions range from uneasiness to full-on jump scares
and fleeing in terror, which make you briefly question the ethics of the experiment. If you’re a cat owner and
have cucumbers in stock, try combining the two and recording it. You might just have comedy gold. Number four is GGGGG. This subreddit that has five Gs is filled with nothing but the letter G. All of the posts involve
photographs of the letter G or edited images and gifs of
where Gs are generally used. There are no visible
rules on the subreddit, but it seems obvious that any posts with letters other than G
or that link to something that doesn’t involve the
letter G are removed. Since its birth on January 24th, 2010, the GGGGG community has grown and currently has over 19,000 members. Some of the all-time posts
involve editing clips of Wheel of Fortune where the
contestant only requests Gs and the board reveals a bunch of Gs and comic panels where
speech bubble dialogue is changed to lines
of, you guessed it, Gs. The odd part about this subreddit is that there are no real
reason for their obsession with the letter G. They just find joy in typing it out and noticing it in the world. It’s best not to try to understand it. You just gotta go with it. Number three is OOER. OOER, created on October 12th, 2011, is a subreddit with the
most annoyingly difficult, confusing, and ugly layout
that you’ve ever seen. Navigating the page is nearly impossible, with images, text, and backgrounds seemingly blending together in a soup of colored comic sans chaos and the words, “Oh man, I am not good with
computer, please help,” appearing everywhere. Moving your sock cursor around
makes things even worse, since scrolling over links causes them to grow 20 times their size. The community has over 33,000 members who have impressively
managed to somehow find and click the subscribe button
without making it disappear under oversized text boxes. OOER’s posted content doesn’t
make much sense either and usually revolves around
general incompetence, lots of broken English
spelling, and glitchy visuals. The astounding brokenness of this page is what draws people in and repels others. Number two is Totally Not Robots. This robotic subreddit community does an excellent job of acting
out what it would be like if androids started to use social media or if the internet bots
chatted to each other in online forums. Totally Not Robots has over
114,800 human members to date, all of whom write posts and comments in an overly formal and unnatural way. They like posting memes
about their favorite things, like breathing in and out, alternating right and left leg movements in order to reach a destination, and eating food for sustenance. The page is also home to janky and awkward versions of trending memes, as well as gifs of people making unintentionally robotic
motions in public or on TV. If you ever want to initiate
your laugh sequence, try Totally Not Robots, the
subreddit for human people. And number one is Fifth World Problems. If you’re big on internet browsing, you’ve probably heard
of First World Problems, the humorous meme for lame issues that people living in privileged
countries take for granted. There’s a subreddit for those memes and there’s a subreddit
for Second World Problems, which take on a Soviet, Russian,
or Eastern European theme. This trend continues into the Third World and even Fourth World group
that talks about issues as members of a primitive human tribe. It seems that the increase in levels creates a bigger disconnect
from the problems of reality, and that really shows
in Fifth World Problems, the subreddit where a horribly
crafted mascot named Zalthor is hailed as the new god. The problems posted here
make little to no sense and they’ve been that way
since the group’s creation on April 25th, 2011. The subreddit’s 65,800-plus
member community seem to take the perspective
of intergalactic lifeforms, which is bonkers. And that’s it. Thank you guys for watching this. Drop a like if you feel like it. And on the right, you’ll find
two of my most recent videos that you can click right
now if you wanna watch more. And don’t forget to subscribe because I’ll have a brand
new video for you soon. Take care, bye!
