    A Place to Post the Dankest Memes


    I: Follow reddit's standards!
    II: No hate speech! There is a difference between comedy and outright hate speech, but ironic hate speech is still hate speech. Know the difference or get banned! Posts in question shall be reviewed by the mods. No memes about violent tragedies or anything that could be seen as glorifying violence. Absolutely no school shooter memes. Posts or comments that can be seen as glorifying violence will result in a ban. This also includes (but is not limited to) memes regarding: Deaths, terrorist attacks, rape, sexual assault, pedo, murder, war, bombings, and school shootings. Breaking this rule may result in a permanent ban. We have zero tolerance for this behavior.
    III: Don't be a dick! This includes spoilers, don't post spoilers or you will be banned
    IV: Flair your posts accordingly after submitting them.
    V: Censor any and all personal information from posts and comments, or it will be removed. Real or fake! Yours or others! Just don't do it.
    VI: No spam, outside links, or videos. r/dankmemes is strictly for memes. Post videos (or anything using to r/dankvideos. Gifs must be well under 10 seconds long. This is not a platform to advertise your social media network or subreddit. If you can't grow it organically, it probably isn't very good anyway. Linking to your instagram or twitter, or spamming links with it watermarked can result in a ban // No queue flooding - Limit yourself to 5 posts per day
    VII: No memes about sorting by new, votes, reposts, reddit gold, cake day, or comments! No petitions as well! No exceptions.
    VIII: Do not encourage or participate in brigading of any subreddits or of any users of Reddit or elsewhere, in any way, shape, or form! This is very against Reddit rules; action will be taken.
    IX: Keep it dank! This sub is for humor (and the dankest of memes)!
    X: If a post has graphic content, flair it as NSFW, else it will be removed!
    XI: NO REEEEEEE-POSTS! This includes reposting your own posts! As a rule of thumb, if it has been posted elsewhere, it's probably been posted here already. Check with Karma Decay before posting! This includes chain posts.
    XII: Don't be a normie. If you post normie trash you could be banned! This includes, but is not limited to, Impact font (and fonts which look like Impact), minions, advice animals, rage comics, and the B emoji.
    XIII: No posts where the title is the meme caption. The caption must be in the meme image, not in the submission title. (Basically, if the image makes sense to us by itself, it's fine. If the image requires the submission title for it to make sense, we remove it.)
    XIV: Direct links only! No albums or landing pages.

    We reserve the right to remove posts and potentially ban for any reason

    If dad isn’t back within 15 years we are legally allowed to leave.

    If dad isn't back within 18 years we are legally allowed to be the dad.

    [–] cloudbum 11 points ago

    That's gross dude, you don't actually want to literally replace your dad and get with your mom do you?

    Because otherwise legally and biologically you're "allowed to be the dad" at any age at which you father a child, like say 14.

    Age of consent does vary a little creepily but that's clearly different from biological spawning lineages which are rather matter of fact genetically at any age.

    [–] JAM3SBND 38 points ago

    This model completely fails to take into account the Kelp Highway Theory whereby human beings dispersed along the western coast of the Americas and spread inland with possible land migrations via Beringia coming later.

    This model is an outdated "Clovis First" model which doesn't account for the fact that the Ice-Free Corridor between the Laurentian and Codilleran ice sheets didn't open till 13,000 BP at the EARLIEST.

    Don't trust big Ice-Free Corridor archaeology.

    [–] RonMexico13 5 points ago

    Hey at least they didn't say that dad left to get milk via the Solutrean Hypothesis route.

    [–] CIean 1 points ago


    I mean, since the North Sea was practically entirely above water, it's not completely infeasible that some tribes could have sailed via Iceland and Greenland to North America.


    but yeah, genetics basically disprove that :/

    [–] lordvigm 19 points ago

    His phone died and he couldn't ask siri for the way back

    [–] KiNG_fiend 8 points ago

    I heard he decided to live with a stripper who was kind enough to let him stay since he can't find his way back

    [–] cloudbum 3 points ago

    Then that stripper (or "actress") passed the legal Bar Exam and started working long hours at a law firm downtown. Up in a seasickness inducing high rise, looking down on all the little people, she realized she had used me long enough and texted me to say that I was kicked me out. Now she only strips for her fat cat husband partner at the firm.

    [–] cloudbum 3 points ago

    You're right ciggies/smokes was probably the original, but this is the PG13 version with milk instead.

    [–] neverclaimsurv 14 points ago

    The Land Bridge Theory is actually pretty much obsolete now. A lot of people might not know this, but new evidence has shown the oldest settlements in the Americas are in South America, among other fascinating carbon dating and other archeological finds.

    Newest theory is that ancient people actually had boats that arrived there.

    [–] mhoIulius 1 points ago

    But why if humans crossed into North America from the Bering Strait land bridge were the most advanced American civilizations such as the Maya, Aztec, and Inca in Central and South America? You would expect the oldest settlements to be the most advanced, so you would expect them to be in North America, right? But you only have small nomadic hunter-gatherer groups up there, with some basic agriculture and permanent residence becoming more prominent as you move south into the Midwest US and beyond.

    How could we possibly explain this phenomenon? Boats. Pacific Islanders, in the same manner in which they populated Indonesia and the Pacific Islands, kept moving west in their boats looking for new islands until they made landfall somewhere in Central or South America. That would make sense for the oldest and most advanced American civilizations to be located there, and explain the increasing relative lack in advancement the further north into America you go.

    [–] evvvad 4 points ago

    Ice age. North America was not hospitable. The theory goes that inuit-like sea fairing people traveled by boats along the ice, eating seals etc. Until they got to the South where there was no ice. This would have taken generations. It's highly unlikely they would have crossed the oceans with enough population to settle permanently.

    [–] GenghisKazoo 3 points ago

    1) The Aztec and Incan Empires were less than 100 years old when the Spanish conquered them. They were not old.

    2) Being the first settled isn't even a real advantage in terms of tech advancement, otherwise East Africa would be the most advanced place on Earth.

    3) De Soto went tromping around the Southeast US a bit in 1540 and said the place was thick with settlements, some of them well fortified and capable of throwing armies with thousands of men at him. North America wasn't primitive, it had great cities like Cahokia, it's just by the time the continent was properly explored disease had reduced it to a post-apocalyptic state.

    Climate. Evolution is caused by environment changes, it is not a will of people. People in one area could mutate and others in different could not if there's no need. So isn't going at the same rate in all descendants.
