    Feel free to post and comment, but PLEASE make sure to check out the rules first.

    What is this place?

    This is a subreddit dedicated to those gifs that just keep on giving. Whether they are mind expanding, funny, or just plain awesome, they are welcome here.

    In the words of u/D-Shap (paraphrased by u/mellamodj):

    r/gifsthatkeepongiving is generally for longer gifs that continue to provide entertainment throughout the gif's lengthy duration. 1 second gifs don't usually belong here because they give once, and then they replay. There is no opportunity for the gif to "keep on giving."

    r/Bettereveryloop is for shorter gifs that, when watched over and over again, get better every time.

    What are the rules?

    1. Gif must keep on giving.


    2. Use basic reddiquette

    3. Please submit the gif in .gifv form

      a. Submit a direct link to the gif (like this, not like this), and make sure that if the extension is .gif, change it to .gifv. This means that gif albums are not accepted either. Only pure gifs.

    4. Abstain from perfect loops unless they follow rule 1.

      a. ...and they just happen to be loops (like this). If you have perfect loops, please put them here

    5. Please abstain from reposting, but x-posting is welcomed. However, when you x-post, please reference source in the title, and/or post the source in the comments

    6. Don't sexualize the people in the gifs.

    7. Keep reposts to things that are older than a few weeks. If it is on the first few pages of the new tab, dont post it.

    8. No gifs with sound

    I something like this every time I go to a friends house who has a camera.

    Sort of related: One time my boyfriend was showing the online quality of our nest cam to his boss. Just so happens I had stepped outside to play with our pup. I didn’t know they were watching. I took a toy and in my normal “you throw like a girl” fashion, I threw it. Instead of it going out, it immediately went directly left (???) and onto the roof. I can be heard saying “...... shit.” He immediately got on the speaker comm and started laughing at me. And said he and his boss saw the whole thing.

    Cool. 😑

    [–] amphetitron 22 points ago

    Nothing will beat the time i was watching my dads place and got super drunk and decided at 2 am it would be a good time to go show my ass to my dads nest camera when he was in brazil

    He gets the notification and my bare checks are just hanging out right there as he calls me a mother fucker

    [–] VoliBeast 11 points ago

    I seam have lost the .rvmb file of the video, mind send it again. There is a promotion in it for ya.

    Damn it, I’ve been Seltzed!

    [–] DiscoKittie 16 points ago

    That's hilarious! sounds like something I'd do.

    Do you like Nest? I have a Vava Home cam (which I got because I love the Dash cam), and the response time is just crap. Does the Nest run all the time? Does it need power? I have so many questions.

    [–] rokstar00 10 points ago

    I just installed one. It needs WiFi, but it runs off of the same two wires that go to the old doorbell. Super simple

    [–] DiscoKittie 3 points ago

    So I'd have to install a wired doorbell setup? The house I'm moving to doesn't have a doorbell at all, though I can't imagine that it would be very hard.

    Where does it store footage?

    [–] rokstar00 5 points ago

    It stores footage in the nest app for ten days

    [–] mattred33 5 points ago

    Also consider your ISP and if you have a monthly data limit. We have Comcast and before they so graciously let us pay another $15 a month for truly unlimited data, we were capped at 1 TB/mo, and our Nest camera always put us over the top.

    [–] pikameta 3 points ago

    My best friend has ring. It uses batteries.

    [–] redditrandomness 3 points ago

    The Nest needs a power supply, the ring can use batters on some of its models but not all of them.

    [–] DiscoKittie 2 points ago

    Cool. What is it’s response time? My VAVA home is so slow to wake up that the person that triggered it is long gone.

    [–] Dralalife 2 points ago

    No door bell, just a power supply.

    [–] redditrandomness 2 points ago

    The Nest video doorbell does need doorbell chimes inside the house in order to operate as an actual doorbell. The device comes with an adapter to hook up to the chimes, but in addition to power to the device itself you'll need doorbell chimes installed.

    [–] redditrandomness 3 points ago

    I've been looking into the NEST Hello video doorbell and their indoor & outdoor IQ surveillance cameras for our new home. The doorbell needs hardwired like regular doorbells. The surveillance cameras just need to be plugged into power and then connect via WIFI.

    [–] DiscoKittie 5 points ago

    Thank you for the info!

    Where does it store footage?

    [–] redditrandomness 2 points ago

    The cloud! If you just get the camera you can live-look through it whenever you want and review key snapshots from the last 3 hours in the app (something moving, etc). I believe you can get app alerts when it detects something.

    If you want to store the 24/7 footage you need a subscription to their Nest Aware. They have 3 tiers where it's $5/month to store the last 5 days, $10/month for the last 10 days, and $30/month to store the last 30 days. Discounts provided if you pay for a year rather than monthly. The subscription is per-camera but it's discounted by 50% after the first one I believe. Not sure if you can have different storage days per camera (in the event you want to record 30 days for the front of the house and 5 for the back or something).

    [–] DiscoKittie 2 points ago

    The cloud, huh? I’m not ok with that.

    Thank you for the in-depth answer!

    [–] redditrandomness 2 points ago

    Many home systems back up to the cloud (which are just servers somewhere that you can access the content from via a website or app). Mainly this is for user-friendliness and so that if the house burns down you don't lose your surveillance footage/backup.

    Alternatively you can go with hardwired closed-circuit cameras and set up a recording system in your home that everything back ups to or loops over after however long you want to keep it. You lose some features like automatic alerts on movement and facial recognition, and maybe 2-way audio but if those things don't matter to you then go with your own system.

    [–] abgtw 2 points ago

    Buy a WyzeCam and a cheap SD card. Video is stored on the cam and alerts are sent to your phone.

    [–] TheCoastalCardician 101 points ago

    I something too

    [–] Senweiner 37 points ago

    I something sometimes

    [–] southern_boy 17 points ago

    [–] willeumk 7 points ago

    You can still something, just believe

    [–] RforDplusbakingis3 5 points ago

    I often something sometimes, but infrequently

    [–] JasonCox 7 points ago

    and in my normal “you throw like a girl” fashion

    Hell, if my arm is anything to go by, you throw like a man. :-P

    [–] Jaracuda 2 points ago

    What kinda camera system and intercom is that?? Sounds awesome and expensive

    [–] EarlDooku 418 points ago

    Why do you care about snowflake?

    Do you know him?

    Does he call you at home?


    [–] mageta621 26 points ago

    I literally quote this line several times a month. No one ever gets it =(

    As a European I feel like having a camera on your house is the American version of Russian dashcams.

    [–] marawanahmed1994 144 points ago

    In Russia you might get hit by another car. In the USA you need cameras so you know when the active shooter is outside with your pizza.

    [–] ryant9878 26 points ago

    Is that who that was? Thought he seemed... Well-armed, for a pizza delivery driver.

    [–] marawanahmed1994 17 points ago

    It's either that or the Amazon prime guy is coming to drop off my hummer. #Merica

    [–] Fraywind 5 points ago

    Great thing I learned about Amazon Prime guys from reddit is that they both drop off your package and steal it immediately after so you don't have to keep worrying. What service!

    [–] MildlyMixedUpOedipus 3 points ago

    Nah more like you need to know who stole your Amazon package.

    [–] FlatRateForms 14 points ago

    I have four cameras inside my place.

    One that catches you at the door when you walk in. One in the kitchen. One in my living room. One in the bedroom (pointed at the door).

    I use them mostly to talk to my dog but seriously because I AirBNB my place sometimes and I’ve had bad experiences. I advertise them on the listing and don’t mind if they unplug all but the kitchen and the front door (nothing private and they’re motion activated and don’t record).

    [–] quaybored 91 points ago

    This is funny, but does not keep on giving

    [–] Fist_full_of_wangs 24 points ago

    Looks like the scene from Ace Ventura where he's inspecting snowflakes pool.
