Here on NMR’s Weekend Edition, we’re always looking for the weird stuff on the web. Maybe because it’s the weekend, maybe because we ate too much paint as a kid, but we like ODD. On Sundays, we dredge up the strange and amazing that YouTube has to offer with our YouTube Treasure Hunter series. We highly recommend it if you like WEIRD nostalgia. On Saturdays, we focus on one of the best sites for weird content: Reddit.

Reddit is sort of a catchall of the web — all the world’s information, disinformation and cat pictures filter through there and users of the free site upvote or downvote the information based on how interesting they find it. This usually winds up in some pretty strange stuff being upvoted to the front page. But to get REALLY WEIRD you have to crawl down into one of the many subreddits out there — and there are thousands.

Like the Parisian catacombs, you can truly get lost in Reddit’s subterranean layers. That’s why, each Saturday, we’ve dedicated ourselves to presenting you with one unusual subreddit for you to explore at your leisure.

Caution: Some of the stuff found within might be VERY NSFW depending on the subreddit we explore. If it’s an entirely NSFW or nasty subreddit, we will warn you below.

Also, if you’re working today, you deserve to look at NSFW stuff!

Subreddit’s best feature: Aside from the fact that cataloging people with giant foreheads is pretty funny, this site doesn’t use a traditional upvote/downvote feature. Instead, they simply ask if the picture in question/comment is a praiseworthy “5” or merely a lowly “4.”
