I feel like you just need to look in the right places on Reddit. The Front Page is obviously hellish. I'm subbed to /r/shittyaskscience, /r/ShowerThoughts, /r/notinteresting, /r/picturesofiansleeping, and /r/AskReddit. I obviously don't take it seriously, and use Reddit to "vent my inner troll." The only subreddit I comment in with a somewhat-serious manner is /r/AskReddit.
