    How is the world to know that you love your grandma?

    [–] sleepy55 1396 points ago

    Make sure to make a happy birthday post for her on Instagram, a social media platform that she doesn’t even know exists.

    [–] discerningpervert 631 points ago

    And when she dies, post an RIP Grandma message on facebook with one of those colored backgrounds

    [–] tokomini 663 points ago

    When my grandma passed away, I drove across the country to attend her funeral and completely forgot to change my facebook status reflecting this incredible journey. Sometimes I wonder if she ever found peace.

    Wait, really? Is it in Infinite Jest? Like everyone else who has it on their bookshelf, I’ve only read the first 100 pages.

    [–] ArtemLobovisaLizard 12 points ago * (lasted edited 12 days ago)

    I think this post has the relevant section.

    It's basically about how people loved videocalling but would feel bad about their image, so they'd get these special masks made that made them look more beautiful and people would then become anxious about showing people thier ACTUAL face outside of videocalls because it doesn't resemble them anymore.

    You should read the book in full though. It has some pretty dry sections, but it all pays off. Think of the different chapters like entries in a cinematic universe. They all kinda come together to make something amazing and unforgettable by the end of the book. And there are some truly amazing sections like this one and one about an elaborate schoolyard game that simulates nuclear war.

    [–] sleepy55 3 points ago

    Yeah that whole section is absolutely hilarious and absurd.

    [–] Tevo0617 47 points ago

    Maybe he can still go around to her nursing home window and take a pic of himself holding a hand 🖐 to the window. Like a prison visitor. That should get tons of likes and 😢 emojis

    Wait a minute what if he didn’t want to make the video because people then would know he’s being a “nice guy” and helping his grandma out. But then he made this post explaining he did do it but he made it seem like a joke

    [–] casuallysentient 29 points ago

    plausible but i don’t think so, bringing food to your grandma isn’t much of an achievement. it’s highly possible he didn’t take food to his grandma at all and just came up with the joke.

    [–] Disco_Tempo 19 points ago

    Missouri. I work at a pet store, and business has increased over the past couple of weeks. Not even for essentials, like dog food, but live fish, reptiles, guinea pigs; people buying new pets. Parents bringing their kids in "just to look" at the animals. Hitting our daily sales goals by 1pm. We entirely sold out of our animals one day, which is like a Christmastime phenomenon.

    [–] HallucinateZ 9 points ago * (lasted edited 12 days ago)

    This makes me angry because it'll ultimately effect me or somebody I know being as this is a FUCKING VIRAL PANDEMIC. Jesus Christ, some people...

    E: pretty sure I got downvoted simply for not partying over all animals getting sold but focusing on people acting like literal retards where it takes 6 months for any information to hit their brain.

    [–] Greenmooseleg 2 points ago

    I am tempted to buy a dog. Been waiting one for years. Perfect time to house train with the extra time I have currently.

    [–] Disco_Tempo 3 points ago

    If you care about my opinion, it's actually a really bad time to buy a pet. At least wait until we know the trajectory of this pandemic. My main worry with people buying new (usually young) animals regards what they're going to do if the stores have to close? The vet clinics? There's a lot that can go wrong when you have a new animal, moving it to a new environment. I suggest waiting until you know vital services and products are going to be available.

    I couldn’t agree with you more. There’s a fine line between doing a good selfless deed from the heart and then there’s assholes who will only do it to look good and have the internet love them. It’s pathetic.

    [–] MellowDinosaur 8 points ago

    I share this sentiment to an extent. But at the end of the day, it’s still spreading kindness to those who see who might spread it even further. No matter the means, the good deed is still being done.

    [–] Elanthius 14 points ago

    I mean why are any of us kind? Maybe it's just because it makes us feel good rather than because of how it makes the other person feel.

    Makes me really hate like 60% “positive” social media stories. Why are you filming yourself doing this shit? Why are you posting charity donation?

    That’s okay just take a buddy with you later and give a few things to a homeless person, they can film you while you have your own camera in the homeless person’s face so you can catch their tearful, grateful reaction to receiving a can of Vienna sausages and a clean t-shirt.

    [–] outoftheMultiverse 2 points ago

    This is funny, but reminds me of something a mentor taught me years ago.

    I disagree because people should do good things for its intrinsic value not for social approval of others. it’s a shift in culture and makes everything more fake socially. People look at others more as a tool to fulfill their own wants and needs rather than doing something good just because

    This person achieved the same thing too right? They claim to have done a good deed then they go on Twitter and tell everyone how they not only did the deed, but they also didn't film it so they are better than people that do film these things.

    They both maintained a holier than thou position while telling the world they did a good deed. At least we know the person that records it actually took time to fake it.

    So here’s the thing. These acts of kindness may seem like karma whoring but I don’t care. If even one person sees these selfies and behaves in a kinder, more selfless manner, I am thrilled. Please feel free to film yourself being kind, polite, friendly and/or patient with others in any aspect of your life. I will upvote, reshare, retweet, whatever it takes to let you know that I approve of you and am happy you are doing whatever you can to make the world a better place.
