The internet is filled with trolls and liars who find joy in deceiving others. But it's also home to plenty of truth-seeking sleuths, ready to call out those who spread lies and pranks. On Dec. 31, 2015, Redditor KnightofSunlight posted a photo of a man holding an object to the subreddit r/WhatsThisThing, a forum which asks the help of the internet to identify random objects. In the thread it was quickly determined that the object was actually a land mine, sending Reddit into full-blown freakout mode as many feared for KnightofSunlight's life. It didn't help that KnightofSunlight, an active Redditor before the post, went completely quiet after submitting the photo.
