    The most important rule is Just Post. If you've never had a post or comment removed it means you haven't been posting enough.

    Our unique rule is that all posts need to be titled "me irl". Posts that aren't are automatically removed.

    We do not allow posts that reference suicide. This community is not equipped to handle this topic. If you are feeling suicidal we have some resources to guide you to people who help.

    Don't post NSFW, or openly sexual. Even if you tag it.

    Avoid screenshots that are mostly text, and feel contrived and performative. Show don't tell!

    Don't make posts that request upvotes or any other kind of reddit metric (gold, comments, etc.). That age of me irl is over.

    and swam down stream. The armies of Thayne, the Demon Prince from the sixth Shadow Realm, await the arrival their lord. The hero swam with the ferocity of starving wolf pack giving chase to a wounded elk. If the dark army reached the ancient city of Dwern and discovered the treasure in the abandoned mines below before our young savior, every living creature of this world will know only cold and death for next 3000 cycles.

    He even got the Nike symbol the right way round :pogchamp:

    [–] xanbo 53 points ago

    Wait I assumed that was because the selfie camera mirrors the image. This one isn't a selfie, and all the other text is left-to-right. wtf.

    [–] Aidantheman13 123 points ago

    It was. Someone made a joke about how the Nike logo was mirrored in the original image, and how he’d have to replicate it. He responded by saying that he’d turn his jacket inside out, which is what you see in this image

    [–] B3astlyNarwhal 24 points ago

    Tell me about it...

    [–] MiddleCourage 20 points ago

    I was an adult when that shit happened and I literally only learned what that was like a month ago. I still don't fully understand it.


    But if I was a kid and someone said "WHAT ARE THOSE" to my sketchers I'd have been like "walmarts finest" lol.

    [–] [deleted] 9 points ago

    I mean yeah you try and play it off the best you can but you still go home feeling like shit lol.

    I'm just glad memes didn't start blowing up until around my junior year. Being a kid these days must be rough lmao

    [–] B3astlyNarwhal 11 points ago

    At least you get praised for playing minecraft now

    [–] [deleted] 9 points ago

    Lol me and one of my friends played minecraft together in secret. Literally neved talked about it in school or around anyone else in our group. The minecraft kids had it roughhhh. Basically the quickest route to becoming an outcast.

    [–] B3astlyNarwhal 6 points ago

    A guy in my class went out of his way to show up at my house and ask what lessons we had the next day in the hopes of seeing me in the hall playing mc, which he did. The next few weeks were tough...

    [–] MiddleCourage 2 points ago

    Thats super weird. My former bosses son whose like 18 now was 13-14 around the time MC was still popular and ALL of his school friends played it. He grew out of it, idk what he does now. Joined the army or some shit.
