Grevor  ·  2298 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Human beings are scary

This is exactly why /r/HFY is my favorite subreddit on Reddit. Some of the coolest sci-fi stories where the Human species does awesome things.

Grevor  ·  2299 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: What are some other image hosting sites like imgur that are safe

Thanks for the anony.ws link. I think I'll really enjoy that website more than imgur.

Love listening to Jason Silva talk about crazy concepts. Heard him on the Joe Rogan Experience years ago and have always been a fan. Some things he says are quite looney but viewed purely as entertainment, is such a great experience. Follow him on Twitter for some solid ideas/discussions he has as well as retweets.

"...so for every star in the colossal Milky Way, there’s a whole galaxy out there. All together, that comes out to the typically quoted range of between 1022 and 1024 total stars, which means that for every grain of sand on every beach on Earth, there are 10,000 stars out there."

Absolutely mind boggling. Always nice to get a fresh dose of reality in relation to one's infinitesimal existence.

I couldn't agree more. I feel like every time New Horizons has a new update I get all giddy with joy like a child. I'm so pumped for each new photo that gets released!

Grevor  ·  2299 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Any paranormal/scary stories you could share?

http://www.angelfire.com/trek/caver/page1.html - Ted the Caver is a classic. So worth the read!

If you don't swat that bounce out of here, you're a punk.

Grevor  ·  2299 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: 10 Explanations For UFOs Weirder Than Aliens

The multidimensional and Future versions of ourselves are pretty commonly discussed in the crypto scene. Pretty wild theories out there for great entertainment if you're into that stuff. I love it, it's my guilty pleasure. Cryptozoology is like my Jersey Shore. I love it, but rarely ever tell people.

Grevor  ·  2299 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Who came up with the "hub" voting system? It's so cool!

I very much enjoy it as well. As a new member it's quite refreshing to see a down to earth community that doesn't encourage the goal of acquiring fake internet points.

Thank you so much, no idea how I didn't notice that. You rock!

Grevor  ·  2300 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: If this is the beginning of the end for Reddit, then Reddit deserves to die

Humanity Fuck Yeah and all the other scifi related subs are my only subscriptions now. For conversation, I think I'll stay here.

Grevor  ·  2300 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: A short doc about a young blacksmith who use the Damascus technique

Absolutely love watching the artisanal craft of blacksmithing. I find myself in a hole where 3 hours latter I'm surrounded by tabs of those who's crafts are far more interesting than my own.

I too am hoping to find a bit more niche communities to visit related to science fiction and short stories. Just commenting as a reminder to check back. Thanks! Good luck to the both of us!

Lurked around for a few hours this morning and decided to take the plunge with a new account. Hello all!

Grevor  ·  2300 days ago  ·  link  ·    ·  parent  ·  post: Reddit changes community guideliness, bans subreddits.

This is massive circle jerk that's on the front page of Reddit right now is the catalyst to finally make me jump ship. As a user who switched during the Digg 4.0 fiasco, i've been so tired of the same junk constantly posted to Reddit this last 2 years. I'm hoping as once active user slowly dwindled into a non-poster I can make a smooth transition here at hubski and finally start contributing some content to other individuals again.
