Behold, 20 of the funniest YouTube videos ever

Mashable

Reddit continues to remain the internet's best dumping ground for some of the funniest content out there. While Reddit has produced some great original material, users on the site equally love to pay tribute to amazing content on other sites. This happened when Redditor u/sporite went onto to the Ask Reddit subreddit to get a general idea of what videos--viral or not--always manage to make Reddit users laugh hysterically. The result was a thread that contained a buffet of the best YouTube videos that are absolutely hilarious. Animals, Vines (RIP), and plenty of fails are just a few of the highlights of the entire 1000 comment thread.

Mashable

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.
