Awesome subreddits

Reddit is a wild, wacky place. Dig a little into the many subreddits and you’ll find a bewildering array of topics tucked inside the clockwork juggernaut that is Reddit (seriously: who goes to /r/UraniumGoneWild?). Luckily the reddit blog has highlighted some little known subreddits. Here are a few of my favorites:

– I’m more surprised that this isn’t in Japan; robot waiters: because they have a better service attitude than humans.
– The first time lightning has been captured by an x-ray camera. Lightning has a cool (but expected) beam rising to the heavens.
– An awesome collection of japanese graphic design.
– For you math nerds: Terry Tao has come across an interesting problem in control theory.
