Reddit, the most popular message board platform on the internet, receives an average of more than 540 million daily visits.
Conservatively speaking, it’s safe to assume that such traffic will generate billions of comments on a monthly basis. However, most posts are likely to be part of the haystack.
Now, suppose you are a horse, which would you eat first? You’ll probably want to stay away from the things people love most.
As a tip, a recent Reddit article listed the top-rated comments from the previous year, and there’s a popular subreddit that records the highest-rated comments of all time. Thanks to them, you can discover some of the most interesting and top-rated reviews.
Here are the top 5 with context.
one. Everything Is Good With Rice
A witty joke at the right time can win a lot of votes. Especially if you manage to break the joke in one of the high-traffic subdirectories like /AskReddit.
Such is the case with the comment below, whose rank is over 35,500. The opening poster (OP) asks the question: “What delicious dish would be disgusting if eaten with rice?” One user replies: “Ice. Rice is great with just about anything”, which got a lot of votes.
But then the opening poster responded: “This had to be cooked for various reasons. I boiled the rice with ice and was left with the rice – 10/10.” Proving that there is no food that won’t go with rice. This comment earned the poster a Reddit gold award.
2nd. A Story About Kevin
This post begins with a loaded question from the OP: “Who is the dumbest person you’ve ever met?” While you’re waiting to read a bunch of stupid stuff, you can’t make up the story below.
A teacher comes up with a wonderful story about a boy named Kevin. After a long post about an extraordinarily low-intelligence boy, the teacher lists all the incredible things about Kevin.
For example, there is a place where Kevin rings the teacher’s phone without turning it off. So when the teacher calls the number, the phone rings. Still, Kevin wouldn’t admit to stealing it. He wouldn’t claim that the ringing phone was his. Instead, Kevin begins to deny that the phone is ringing. This is just one of many anecdotes shared in response to the original question.
The post is now 5 years old and on reddit the poster has won 3 platinum awards, 13 gold awards and 7 silver awards.
3. Best Life Choice
Not all upvoted comments have to be funny. Some touch on personal stories like this comment, which got almost 70,000 votes. The OP asks about other people’s best life choices.
One interpretation goes back to the kindergarten years. The OP had to choose a reward for good behavior, but instead of choosing a mini gumball machine, the OP decided to choose something else. Thanks to this choice, he gets this warm and cheerful feeling that recurs to this day. You really have to read the post yourself, so we won’t spoil it.
4. Don’t “roast” the OP
“Roasting” in this context is when another Reddit user is joking with the opening poster. This comment received nearly 63,000 votes, effectively roasting the OP.
The OP describes a situation where he went to hug a girl but quickly grabbed and waved her hand, possibly to avoid something more intimate. “What are the most desolate places in the world known to man?” It was embarrassing for him to ask.
To which one user replied: “Your bed, I guess.”
5. Disneyland Stupid BUT
The opening poster begins by saying that he played Goofy for a long time at Disney World, which sounds like something fun. Then a comment requests a retelling of a magical moment at Disney World, which changes things.
Adam tells the heartbreaking tale of two teenage girls who survived a tragic accident. The story chronicles the joint efforts of those working at Disney World to make their day magical. This is a great story and currently the top rated comment of all time.
Above and beyond the comment, the whole thread is amazing and definitely worth reading.
