Sir, I need to know where I can get some business hammocks.

    a chromecast

I've had one for a while now, and it's great ... when it works. For some reason I have more problems with the wifi where I work now, so the connection to my Plex media server isn't stable enough. I've moved my Intel NUC into my living room instead, and while it is a more complicated user experience (keyboards and mouses and stuff!), it is more stable. Plus it gives me more options.

The ease of just using my phone to play anything on my Chromecast was awesome, though.

    all my plans continue on regardless of the outcome of this

I've never really had plans more than a year or half a year in advance, and it sounds like you have more detailed plans? Like a plan for many years ahead? I'm just curious.

Yesterday I watched a couple walking towards the city center, and it hit me that it will take years before my wife and I can ever again walk like that - alone and without worrying about our kids. We have one 2 year old and one 10 days old.

Not that it's necessarily bad - it's just different. We chose to get kids, and we love them. It's fascinating how much your life changes when you have kids, and how fast it all seems natural. I hardly remember what it was like to have no obligations.

    silly internet drama

I'm not so sure this is the correct classification, the Internet is a very real part of our lives, and Reddit has millions of users - so it's not some old lady telling you how to dispose off your doggie doodoo.

It would make sense to shower in the evening, as to not drag all your greas into bed, but whenever I do that I have to shower in the morning as well, to freshen up.

When we were talking about traveling at work, I mentioned that I went to China once, and realized that that was 20 years ago.

That last comment by Yishan was particularly interesting - there must be a lot more going on internally at Reddit.

    more circle-jerky than reddit is now
Mind. Blown.

    I guess my fundamental question is what on Reddit is worth paying for?

People are heavily invested in the communities in the subreddits. You can get communities for free elsewhere, you can't get those specific ones. And let's not make this a discussion on the quality of the subreddits, the users obviously think they're worth spending a lot of time on.
