Here on NMR’s Weekend Edition, we’re always looking for the weird stuff on the web — and on Saturdays, we like to 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 thousands of subreddits out there.

(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.)

Today’s Reddit Mystery Spot:

                                       r/OddlySatisfying

If you’re someone who watches the logo bounce around their TV or computer in “sleep mode” just hoping that it will perfectly hit the corner of the screen, well, I have the perfect subreddit for you. Even if you don’t do that though, you’ll still find something zen about this subreddit which caters to harmony in life and nature.

The name Oddly Satisfying perfectly encapsulates the majesty you feel when something has a feng shui appearance of synchronicity. It’s no secret that subliminally we find things that are aligned to be more aesthetically pleasing — faces, nature, robot p*nises, whatever.

Totally riddled with NSFW: There’s not even a nice pair of symmetrical boobies here. It’s all family friendly. 
Violent, morbid or outright evil: You might scream “The Devil!” at how well some of this stuff works out, but nope. 
Okay for kids: Yes! Kids should be allowed to bask in the majesty of a world in alignment as well as grownups.

Is it active: nyDefinitely a happening place — I’d say it’s oddly satisfying how so many oddly satisfying events occur in life. 
Friendliness of community: Satisfied people apparently don’t seem to feel the need to be mean, it’s quite refreshing.
Funniness of comments:

Subreddit’s best feature:

Here it is the content. A component of a lot of subreddits is the commentary — people pontificating on the images, that draws in participants and/or makes the subreddit come alive. At r/OddlySatisfying, it’s all about watching beauty and life intersect.
