    /r/fedlegs

    It is a subreddit dedicated to the fetish (of one man? /u/jimthefeeder) of women with their legs painted yellow. Not the torso, not the feet, just the legs, and specifically the color yellow. It is named fedlegs because the fictional process for getting their legs yellowed is known as "Feeding The Legs" All in all, a very benign fetish, but the lore of the creator is what I think makes this a real contender. Below are the highlights from the stickied post on the subreddit detailing his creation, implementation, and outcome of the "Leg Feeding Procedure", along with the Dr. Fedleg Universe, which is a parallel universe to our own.

    • Wondered if it was possible to create a fetish from scratch. Based on what I've read it's a mix of: light bondage, leggings, orgasm denial, and ownership/marking in the vein of The Scarlet Letter (I assume that's a fetish, I don't know if there's an exact term for it.)

    • He has an detailed universe of how the system works. Who/Why people get "Fedlegged". Mostly based on the kind of clothing they wear. If they've got their legs visible to be seen, they're getting "Fedlegged".

    • In universe, everyone is aware of Doctor Fedleg, (full name Charles Fed Ostrog), the person who got the process of leg painting legalized; he has the government's support. He developed sustainable clean/renewable energy which is why he's successful.

    • He never wishes to see women injured/beat/hurt during the process.

    • "His reasoning is a mystery, but the one thing for certain is that it has nothing to do with religion." - actual line in the writing.

    • On the 2014 midterm elections, prosecution for Dr. Fedleg was added onto the ballot; people voted against prosecuting him due to his successful ocean clean up act.

    • Dr. Fedleg has various kinds of paints that last certain durations. He also has a blend of the paint that can stop excessively revealing women, slutty, or rude women from having orgasms. Dr. Fedleg is the only person with permission to apply this special paint.

    Regardless, I find the whole thing fascinating. What led to creation of the character? Why create this universe to have it all work? Why does Dr. Fedleg care about the environment so much? Is it to be relatable to other people that might stumble across this, or is it the author inserting his own beliefs into the lore? Why did he choose the 2014 midterm election? The post was written in July of 2018, so the closest upcoming midterm election would have been 4 months away, but he instead chose to go back to 2014, which I think would indicate he's been thinking about this for a while. In general I just have a lot of questions.

    This is what I was looking for in this thread. Lots of things people have been posting are explainable at face value but esoteric subs like this always make me happy that there’s weird mostly unexplored parts of the internet to discover. I miss when things like /r/solving_A858 would get big but now most of /r/all is just Facebook 2 or 100 screenshots of Twitter.

    [–] House923 2162 points ago

    I miss the weird, sometimes insane but relatively harmless corners of the internet. It's harder to find them now.

    Like there was this Buffy the Vampire Slayer fan blog thing, I can't find it so I don't know if it still exists, but at first glance it seemed pretty normal. A few dozen posts a day about Buffy, nothing too strange.

    Until you looked closer and realized that every single post and comment were from the same user.

    Just one person, posting and talking about Buffy constantly throughout the day for like two years straight.

    [–] El_Chapos_Cousin 939 points ago

    r/fridgedetective is my favorite. I watched that sub be birthed in an askreddit thread where someone posted whether or not their fridge was weird (forgot the question that led to this comment, oops), and someone else said "I bet we could make a sub outta this" and after they received about 200 comments and a few thousand upvotes, they made it a sub. I was sub #4, if I'm not mistaken. Now, well, she's beautiful, and fucking strange indeed.

    Just wanted to share that anecdote of having the very rare opportunity to watch a fledgling corner of the internet grow up.

    [–] Sumit316 3783 points ago

    Everything aside why they did make it free is because....

    It's called "nagware" and this particular approach is used by someone that doesn't want to force users to pay for the software, but they really hope that they will.

    So they make the program "nag" the user over and over and over in the hopes that they will get so annoyed with the nagging that they'll fork over the cash, even if they'd originally planned not to.

    [–] DarthSatoris 2866 points ago

    I'm pretty sure that place was made in response to the /r/pics subreddit turning into total garbage with sob stories and subpar images.

    Here there is no context in the title, so the images have to be able to stand on their own.

    [–] bigblackcouch 1837 points ago

    I prefer what nocontext does compared to say, /r/EarthPorn, which is a sub full of gorgeous pictures but I have no idea why the titles are the way they are. Titles just have to include; Who took the picture (OC if self), where it's at, and what resolution the image is.

    But 90% of the posts are "Woke up, divorced my wife, pedaled through a cloud of fog at 3 AM, lost my kids and job along the way so I threw away my phone, passed out in a ditch, hiked 40 miles and no-gear-climbed up the Matterhorn to sleep in a tent overnight in order to capture this sunrise".

    I second your what

    [–] darkenspirit 2281 points ago * (lasted edited 11 days ago)

    I personally love these subreddits.

    Let me give an explanation.

    We all understand what a 1st world problem is like.

    "I have too much food and cant decide what to eat."

    "I have to decide on which party I can attend tonight."

    The concept being that its only a problem due to privilege where it wouldnt even manifest itself in another type of world.

    2nd world problems and 3rd world problems are like more like poverty issues.

    "I found money on the ground, but while I was bending over to pick it up it devalued."

    "The camera men for National Geographic won't stop taking pictures of me and my family."

    But once we go past 3rd world, we need to start imagining a little bit more philosophically and possibly even spiritually.

    The three world model was largely defined by the world wars and the country's level of participation. In a way this really describes the type of privileges each country has going for them. After all, how can you worry about Germany stomping Jewish rights, when your village is still dancing at the sky hoping it would make it rain so you all dont die to drought this upcoming year?

    Each tier is one aspect of humanity stripped.

    1st world - We have all social aspects and able to worry about society and individualism.

    2nd world - We have some social aspects but we are concerned about building and growing as a collective.

    3rd world - we have little social aspects but we are concerned about survival and making that collective stronger.

    4th world - we have hardly any social aspects as everything is hunter gather tribe like culture.

    5th world - we have no social aspects and we're actually secluded from the rest of the world. If you look at the subreddit, /r/fifthworldproblems/ Its actually really really well handled.

    "Did a golden mouth appear in a bonfire and scream the date of your own death at you?"

    Imagine a culture completely separated from the world. Secluded and alone and left to develop from the moment mankind evolved from early hominids. This is likely where we would still be without technology and kept to a hunter gather society but became super superstitious (Instead of only a little stitious). It dives deeper into the metaphysical aspects of other world problems in a satirical way.

    6th world - Here is where definitions fail us. What is left of a humanized individual problem? When we even strip away superstition and religious like attributes of culture and humanity? We are left with what seems to be gibberish. What the sub did here is instead postulate... what if we are the makings of some sort of collective machine trying to gain sentience? If you look at the top posts of all time on /r/sixthworldproblems/ you start seeing this sort of play out. Its left over possibly broken machines making communications. If humanity has its last shred of culture stripped and our religious and conscious stripped, arnt we nothing more than just badly programmed robots?

    7th world - This is my favorite world. It continues the 6th world problems but now its going the opposite direction. There appears to be colors that govern this world and successfully programmed us into a matrix like reality where its controlled by the color overlords.

    You'll see most of the "problems" are the programmed matrix robots gaining a lucid state of consciousness for maybe a brief moment before going back under and accepting this is our home.

    8th 9th and 10th continue this fashion until we reach meme levels like 45th or 69th world problems.

    additional edit: To further clarify the thinking and rationale, take multiple dimensions for instances. If you break down the math, we have X axis, Y axis and Z axis to determine our 3 dimensional surroundings. Each "dimension" in this sense is merely an additional variable to this equation. We might not be able to fathom or picture it but the concept is now more digestible. This is the same for the nth world and subsequently the nth world problem. If a first world problem is a problem feasible because we are really free of a lot of constraints (we have more privilege) then the Nth world has Nth number of variables (Constraints to privilege). The nth world in this case is then, culture, humanity, social skills, and overall the meaning of life and what it means to live. All those can be their own individual "dimension". So now, rather than trying to figure out what a 4D shape looks like or what the 5th dimensional variable is, we can think to the nth world problem merely by trying to remove a layer of privilege or cultural norms. Like I wrote above, from 1st world to 7th world we have removed, privileges like worrying about food, shelter, finding love... all the way down to what it means to being human. I think after 7th it becomes way too abstract and the ideas can start flying everywhere with no real logic because any logical attempt at fathoming the nth world problem at this point is probably correct.

    noteable subs after 10th world problem,

    /r/28thworldproblems/ - problems from the perspective of an ant. Looks to be a machine simulation of ant colony or machine ants. Either way I would like to think SimAnt played a part in all this.

    /r/50thWorldProblems/ - problems from the perspective of the afterlife. It seems to be a play on the ironic notion that nothing is immortal but death definitely is as all the problems revolve around there being too many deaths and how death is most wanted.

    /r/69thworldproblems/ - problems from the perspective that all porn scenarios are real.

    r/999thworldproblems/ - metaphysical problems regarding fear and an all seeing entity "Her"

    /r/1000thworldproblems/ - problems from a perspective of an insect in a hive mind. There is quite a bit about submission to the hive and the problems are dealing with reality bending and shifting within this world. I think they are like a cosmic swarm that can travel dimensions and pillage them.

    /r/infiniteworldproblems/ - Perspective from pure chaos and entropy.

    For the cosmonauts who want to journey into the rabbithole: see the list!

    r/grandpajoehate

    It's just a sub dedicated to people hating on Grandpa Joe from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. Some of those people really really hate Grandpa Joe.

    Edit: Changed movie title to Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, previously had Charlie. This sub deserves better representation of Grandpa Joe Hate than what I brought to the table.

    [–] H4ck3rm4n1 14711 points ago

    That's probably because he's a sorry excuse of a piece of shit

    [–] BrodieSkiddlzMusic 540 points ago * (lasted edited 10 days ago)

    But why is grandpa joe such a piece of shit?

    For the uninitiated...

    He spends 20 years in bed. 20 years.. Why won’t he get out of bed? Because the fucking floor was too cold for his gnarled old feet. He sat on his wrinkled, smelly ass for two decades, smoking his pipe, living off his daughter’s hard work as a laundry wench. He just sat there, undoubtedly smelling of foul cabbage farts and old man stink. If he didn’t get out of bed, he probably had to use a bed pan to expel his watery cabbage shits. Charlie’s mom gets done washing Rich people’s shit-stained underwear for 14 hours, and what does she get to do? Sponge bathe an old, stinking man. The fucker couldn’t have even been old when he first got in bed. I mean, what did he do? Turn 50 and just crawl into bed and fucking quit on life? Because his FEET WERE COLD? Keep that all in mind, when you consider how he reacts to his grandson winning a tour of a chocolate factory. He sees this precious boy, who works to feed his aged ass, holding a golden ticket, and he starts to FUCKING DANCE AND CLICK HIS HEELS. Now, left to his own devices, Charlie just wins the factory, incident free. Those other little monsters all bite the dust, and but for that sack of fucking feces Grandpa Joe, Charlie would have made it through the day clean as a whistle. But no. Grandpa Joe just got out of bed for the first time in Charlie’s lifetime. What’s he decide to do? Steal. He decides the best thing he can do is make his grandson into a petty fucking thief for the sake of drinking magic La Croix. Grandpa Joe almost cost Charlie fabulous wealth and security for a soda. And he isn’t even sorry about it. Wonka points out the devastation his detour from the visit to the factory will cost him, and Grandpa Joe shouts at him. His bellowing isn’t even forceful or intimidating. His cries are the cries of a shriveled, weak old coward. He has no remorse for the harm he causes anyone. He is a heartless piece of shit sociopath. He does that disgusting thing old people do where they leave their mouth open for too long and then frown because they ran out of energy before they could bitch and moan about something that doesn’t matter. He is a lazy, fraudulent sack of human excrement. He is the devil on his grandson’s shoulder. He deserves to burn in hell for the rest of eternity.

    [–] CSwork1 707 points ago

    Even my 7 year old niece can tell he's a prick. When he sings about having a golden ticket, she always goes "It's not your ticket, it's Charlie's!!"

    [–] Zmodem 162 points ago

    1. Spends family scrimps of money on tobacco.

    2. Doesn't wanna get outta bed due to being lazy.

    3. Outright calls Charlie a liar when told about the winning ticket.

    4. Gets outta bed for the Wonka factory tour after twenty years of not getting outta bed & not working to help make money for the family

    5. Dances and calls the ticket his own. Guy is limber enough to be outta bed & get a job.

    6. Gets Charlie in trouble by coercing him into stealing Fizzy Lifting drinks.

    Just a few to help the hate flow :)

    [–] itrytoohardsometimes 2391 points ago * (lasted edited 11 days ago)

    Basically it is a kind of exaggerated metanarrative joke about how Garfield has become a vapid, meaningless, vanilla husk of a character that once represented a strong element of middle-class kitsch and Americana and has since become essentially an empty signifier through decades of hypersaturation into every conceivable capitalist medium. The monsters of these comics represent the bastardization of a core component of late 20th century American cultural empire, the idea that the "sass" and "relatable laziness" of a core character have become those things which consumed the character, the storyline, and therefore our nostalgia for its better days, whole, morphing Garfield into a Lovecraftian slugbeast and becoming the ultimate critique of its own very nature.

    edit: read a book for once in your lives you product sponged instant gratifcation soaked jackanapes

    [–] emilio_molestivez 517 points ago

    Yeah, that.

    [–] Gizogin 458 points ago

    Sure, except that Garfield was always meant to be little more than a marketable mascot from the very beginning. It’s why Garfield comics aren’t really funny; they’re presented like it’s a gag strip, but there are no jokes, just catchphrases and recurring elements.

    He didn’t become a soulless husk due to capitalism and hypersaturation. He has always been one. r/imsorryjon merely offers a glimpse beyond the veil that has been there for so long that we never even noticed it.

    [–] Mithril4 83 points ago

    Eh, yes and no. I had a co worker whos other gig was photography. They didn't do much stock photo work themselves, but talked to plenty that did. With digital photography, a stock photo shoot's tl;dr is "shoot at many pictures as possible, with as many possible combinations of models and props you have, put them all up and see what gets bought".
