Also this was perfectly timed for me to listen while gardening, so thanks for that. 

Also also I generally recommend this subreddit as a constant source of entertainingly bizarre shit (as well as the usual daytime talk show drama); I kept running into things for weeks after the recording that made me go, "GODDAMMIT THAT WOULD MAKE A GREAT DOC!"  I may need to do a sequel...

Though as a warning a lot of the stuff is really depressing "My relationship is great except that my partner is an obvious abuser, how can I change?" :(

"Jerkoff buddies" definitely came up in the Fleshlight episode. It might've also been in the porn forum, but there were multiple people who like Fleshlights who also wanted to jerkoff with another guy (but NO HOMO).

That one was kind of the insufferable crown jewel. 

(I was a little disappointed that the Cthulhu plushie one didn't end up in the ep, since that one's both WTF and filled with nerds falling all over themselves to talk about what quirky stuff they do with their toys.  Oy vey.)

After listening to the episode and reading the doc, I want to believe that one of the reasons r/relationships is this way is because of how emotionally and spiritually dead you need to make yourself to avoid grabbing your monitor, shaking it, and screaming "DUMP THE MOTHERFUCKER RIGHT FUCKING NOW IT'S NOT ABOUT THE CAT FOOD SCOOP IT NEVER WAS OH MY FUCKING LORD" at every post.

To be fair to the subreddit, it seems like the majority of commenters are reasonable people who give good advice (which is usually "WTF that's seriously fucked dump their ass!").  Just, reddit being reddit, there are ALSO weirdos who see nothing wrong with the situation or want to rescue a fair m'lady or whatever, and those are the ones I chose to share, because the sane ones aren't funny.

This subreddit is a never-ending source of aaagh and lulz. For the last couple of years friends have been finding awful posts and posting them in an irc channel, so this podcast felt like a normal day, especially the reactions.

One of my favorite parts of /relationships is the sheer number of posts which are all "I'm a man in my late thirties dating a barely legal college student and she's so immature! How do I change her??!"

It just keeps popping up over and over and over.

I really hate that everyone on that gaming girlfriend post ignored the fact that she just wanted to spend more time with her piece of shit boyfriend.

Though I guess I don't know why I expect Reddit to grasp such deep social intricacies.

Shell Game, May 24, 2017, 12:44:03 pm

Remember that we (and our content providers) are selectively choosing the awful stuff from threads like that. The vast majority of actual responses in that thread were from people just as bothered by the pure shittiness of that boyfriend as all of us were (although with more "I wouldn't do that to you, m'lady" tone to it)

Yeah it's surprisingly hard getting good comment threads on r/relationships, because like 98% of the posts are sane and reasonable people who have somehow managed to continue posting on reddit.

Fortunately, there's always that 2% where someone's Spidey Sense went off and they said, "Wait! Someone is covering my area of interest!  THE INTERNET NEEDS MY TERRIBLE OPINIONS!"

And, y'know, all the beautiful, beautiful OPs with their baffling problems.

Haha. That's really true. Actually now that I think of it I recall listening to the r/legaladvice ep and was like "Huh. Well actually I've found myself surprised by how often people get really good advice from people with law backgrounds." But then I remembered that the most hilarious/ridiculous stuff usually comes from the OP.

Shell Game, May 25, 2017, 07:09:49 pm

I occasionally go to r/legaladvice, when the advice is bad it's usually because it's just incredibly judgmental and assumes our justice system works perfectly. If you're asking for advice there on something that has a more complicated answer than "yes, you're fine" or "no, get a lawyer and/or stop breaking laws" then, unless you get lucky and get an actual good commentator, you are going to get bad advice. It's just not crazy, stupid bad advice. The fact that the people doing the upvoting/downvoting, and therefore choosing who drives the conversation, are mostly not lawyers themselves but just random redditors also really hurts the place for genuine legal advice.

Still, I'll give it credit. It's a perfect place to go if you have a question that's complicated enough that you can't figure it out yourself, but simple enough that you don't want to actually talk to a lawyer about it.
Title: 247: r/eally_sorry_about_that
Post by: Puppy Time on May 27, 2017, 01:38:33 pm
r/legaladvice is awesome for the same reason as r/relationships: to just read the entries and wonder "Why???"

ETA: Another legaladvice episode would be great.  Maybe I'll do one of those, much as I feel bad for always going back to the reddit well.  It's just got such a great combo of awkward turbonerds and a high enough population to contain multiple weirdoes!

Post by: blunge on May 31, 2019, 04:56:13 am
There's also that weird thing where the OP doesn't feel they're getting the right answers and try to game the system by crossposting to other threads and using that feedback to slam the original responders, and then melting down when the tactic fails,.
