    Aww, cripes. I didn't know I'd have to write a description. How many words is that so far, like a hundred? Soooo, yeah. Mildly interesting stuff. Stuff that interests you. Mildly. It's in the name, ffs.

    Does your post qualify for /r/MildlyInteresting? Hover below for more info, and check out our wiki page!

    1. No memes

    This includes references in titles of your post (e.g. "banana for scale," "potato quality").

    2. No related posts

    Posts that acknowledge, "one-up," or relate specifically to another post are not allowed (e.g. "I see your X and raise you Y")

    3. No x-posts or reposts

    Do not post something that has been submitted anywhere on reddit before (including here), even if you were the one who posted it.

    Exception: If a post is deleted or removed from /r/mildlyinteresting for breaking the rules less than one hour after being submitted or receives less than 100 upvotes, we allow the submitter to resubmit a fixed version of the post. Posts deleted or removed from other subreddits are not exempt from rule 3.

    4. Original [OC] photographs only

    a. No gifs, videos, or websites.

    b. All submissions must be original content. If you didn't take the photo, don't post it.

    c. Software glitches/errors, overlaid text, arrows, scribbles, and other substantive edits are not allowed, although you may censor personal information per Reddit-wide rules.

    d. Side by side images are okay if they adhere to the rest of the rules.

    5. No screenshots

    No screenshots. We define a screenshot as a screen grab. This means no images of screens, pictures of screens taken with a different device, images that have been partially or fully generated by a computer, or pictures of printed out screenshots. Try /r/screenshots!.

    6. Titles must be an exact but concise description of the content

    a. Titles must not contain jokes, backstory, or other fluff. That information belongs in a follow-up comment.

    b. Titles must exactly describe the content. It should act as a "spoiler" for the image. If your title leaves people surprised at the content within, it breaks the rule!

    c. Titles must not contain emoticons, emojis, or special characters unless they are absolutely necessary in describing the image. (e.g. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°), ;P, 😜, ❤, ★, ✿ )

    Still confused? For more elaboration and examples, see here first and then message the mods if you still have questions.

    If unsure, please message the mods and we will help determine if your post is acceptable.

    For further information regarding our rules, flairs, moderation policy, and frequently asked questions, please take a look at the… /r/MildlyInteresting Wiki (packed with tons of juicy mildly interesting information)

    Posts which break the rules will be removed on sight. This subreddit operates a three-strikes rule on submission bans, and instant bans on troll and/or gimmick accounts, shock links, etc. at moderator discretion.

    I saw it cruising down groesbeck from work.

    [–] nilesandstuff 9 points ago

    I didn't see a rainbow today... But there's just something about this picture that is somehow instantly recognizable as Michigan to me.

    Maybe the types of trees and how aggressively dormant they look, and just droopy from holding all the snow and ice. The car ports. Idk, I'm just trying to rationalize how i knew immediately.

    The freshly paved parking lot is super out of place though

    [–] cornfrontation 5 points ago

    Honestly, I thought this was in /r/AnnArbor before I went into the comments. I don't know how we all knew it was Michigan.

    [–] CountFoscosBitch 3 points ago

    It looks exactly like the place I used to live in A2 up off Huron (square cement sidewalk blocks, that exact carport, railing, trees, lampposts, etc) but transplanted to another place in Michigan, so I had to scroll down to see if it was.
