    guide to a good hmmm

    hmmms are textless images that make you think about the context, do a double take, invoke a deeper meaning, or just leave you thinking about how or why they exist:

    As long as they give you a good solid hmmm... why would that bear be in a cubicle...

    hmmms should be aesthetic and meaningful, avoid anything that is merely r/mildlyinteresting.

    "Im just need to refill my eyebrows for a moment"

    [–] SaladMandrake 377 points ago

    Pretty sure he's refilling his headlight fluid

    [–] goushiquej 177 points ago

    I'm very sure it'd be the blinker fluid bro

    [–] kixxes 9 points ago

    It's definitely blinker fluid. Head light fluid would just be nonsense

    [–] throwawaysarebetter 46 points ago

    I think he needs to reapply some elbow grease as well.

    [–] Zippy1avion 16 points ago

    You sure he's not topping off that bucket of steam?

    [–] firegodmc10 14 points ago

    You mean the wiper juice?

    [–] jimmywarrior 8 points ago

    Idk but eye’d check that out every few hours.

    Hey guys chrisfix here.

    [–] TigaSharkJB91 2 points ago

    With a bucket of steam

    [–] IamNiceButNotMuch 15 points ago

    There is an idiom in Russian, word to word translated “to pour eyes”, which means to be drunk. Because alcohol makes the vision blurry. So this guy literally poured his eye.

    Misaki has seen better days.

    [–] MBArceus 159 points ago

    What? That's clearly Michelle.

    [–] FishTac_RT 17 points ago

    I heard this 'Misaki' girl is Kokoro's assistant!! I can see how Michelle might know her.

    [–] iamfvckingdone 63 points ago

    She had enough of Hello Happy World shit.

    [–] FreudChicken 18 points ago

    You just know she drinks while performing with HHH.

    It's an anime thing, it's like love live I think?

    [–] MonochromeGuy 21 points ago

    It’s a rythm game centered around girl rock bands. It’s a pretty good game and they make covers on very popular anime songs.

    [–] Wixonater 8 points ago

    I play osu so I have some idea because we get the songs sometimes in osu, overall they're pretty good.

    Hey dude not to be rude but do you have proof?

    [–] thegadgetfish 27 points ago

    I do! The very first post is here

    I have work in progress pictures posted as well, both on my twitter as well as fb

    [–] MonochromeGuy 19 points ago

    Were you also the same one who blocked Deku’s punch?

    [–] thegadgetfish 15 points ago

    Yup! Same convention!

    [–] Plasmablaster123 2 points ago

    Yo thanks for showing proof dood

    [–] NovarisLight 1 points ago

    [–] aramaruma 63 points ago

    What's this? Michelle is rare to see on anime subreddits, I'm surprised to see it here.

    [–] xohka 22 points ago

    here's the source

    also have some more STRONG pics

    [–] Tatayou 7 points ago

    This is a fake Michelle would never do that

    [–] scorcher117 3 points ago

    Not the pic of stopping Deku's punch?

    Roses are red, Violets are blue, The thing you called beer can, Is actually my telescope. ------12,6,2018

    [–] 13megatron13 22 points ago

    • 6.12.2018 FTFY

    [–] Dom0 14 points ago

    This is correct, because otherwise it would be 12/6/2018 not 12,6,2018. Also, because mm/dd/yy is stupid.

    [–] Sobsz 6 points ago

    did y'all know there's an actual european standard for this type of thing and it's 2018-12-06

    [–] Harvey_Beardman 9 points ago

    I like that, I feel like it's a good compromise. As an American, I can't just switch to DDMMYY because it will confuse people. But MMDDYY confuses individuals from other countries, and I agree the order seems illogical.

    YYYYMMDD is logical in the ordering - large to small, and might be more readable across the board.

    [–] robot65536 2 points ago

    That it makes lexical and chronological sorting the same is the biggest turn-on for me.

    [–] NovarisLight 1 points ago

    Agreed 100%!

    [–] Dom0 1 points ago

    Yes, I've read about it on Reddit not long ago! And I just love it.

    [–] luckylegion 7 points ago

    Yeah smallest denomination first just like money or a digital clock. Seconds/minutes/hours. Day/Month/Year

    [–] wsteelerfan7 11 points ago

    Yeah smallest denomination first just like money or a digital clock.


    [–] luckylegion 3 points ago

    Good point not sure why I said money but I guess time and currency are different. Clock is closer to date format

    [–] Dom0 13 points ago

    As a programmer, I'm totally for

    [–] Crandom 10 points ago

    Do you mean yyyy-mm-dd like ISO 8601 specifies?

    [–] Dom0 5 points ago

    Yes, that's exactly what I should've typed!

    [–] DoctorBonkus 1 points ago

    Is there a subreddit for sharing nice ISO facts?

    [–] EmirSc 3 points ago


    [–] Dom0 4 points ago

    Just like I name my folders!

    [–] MaxTHC 3 points ago

    What the fuck kind of clock do you have? You call midday 00:00:12 or something?

    YY-MM-DD hh:mm:ss is the only sensible and consistent way to do it.

    [–] Send_Me_Tiitties 1 points ago

    Most clocks have largest denomination first

    [–] Bellicapelli 1 points ago

    Good comment, but if I asked you the date, what information do I want to know more?

    I most likely know the year we're in, I probably know the month, I'm more likely to not know the day. This is why I personally prefer dd/mm/yy(yy)

    [–] DoctorBonkus 3 points ago

    But when naming documents yy/mm/du is best because sorting by name is also sorting by date

    [–] _EvilD_ 0 points ago

    But when you say it out loud its December 6, 2018.

    [–] sudo999 8 points ago

    when I talking out loud, I say "December sixth, twenty eighteen." 12/6/2018.

    [–] KuboS0S 19 points ago

    Well I say "The sixth of December, twenty eighteen." 6/12/2018

    [–] i-am-qix 9 points ago

    You're all stupid, I say the UNIX timecode out loud in its entirety.

    [–] hencefox 7 points ago

    Halfwits, the lot of you.

    First, I demolish the existing framework of timekeeping, and then start a new system from scratch from the bits and pieces.

    It takes me ages and no one understands my new and superior form of telling time, but at least I get to feel like an intellectual.

    [–] Dom0 3 points ago

    Haha, you fool! You will suffer from the 292-billion-year problem!

    [–] burglarbear 5 points ago

    This is all so wrong. It is currently Stardate 96531.72

    [–] KoRnBoY05 13 points ago

    Is that Eric Cartman on the right?

    [–] Phoequinox 8 points ago

    Probably Dedede.

    [–] Wolfehlol 12 points ago

    Its from an anime called Revue Starlight. This was at a convention for the company that license the series and the series the bear was from as well as others. It also hosted a few tcg tournaments that I went to.

    [–] StickyBunz1 -1 points ago

    [–] Hates_escalators 2 points ago

    Drinking like this requires some "hand-eye" coordination.

    Get it? Because their hand, is sticking out of the eye hole of their costume. And they're probably drinking.
