On August 19, composer and sound designer Marc Straight introduced his dad to the world of modern gaming.

Though his dad was a fan of video games during the "SEGA CD period" of the early 1990s, his no nonsense descriptions of modern staples quickly gained the admiration and amusement of the gaming community.


Straight took to his Twitter account to share his father's insights like this one about the "action-adventure survival game" No Man's Sky.

His father had a unique way of putting things into perspective, like his take on God of War.

Marc's dad calls it like it is. He found Overcooked overrated.

Sometimes, his descriptions were so true they were painful, like his take on Dark Souls 3.

But his father also got to know a little bit (too much) about his son through the process...

This dad's got mad dad joke comedy SKILLS.

There are few things more satisfying than a crisp $20 bill. Well, maybe a crisp $100 bill.

But twenty big ones can get you pretty far nonetheless.

Whether it's tucked firmly in a birthday card, passing from hand to hand after a knee-jerk sports bet, or going toward a useful tool, the old twenty dollar bill has been used for countless purposes.

I realize that school safety has been severely compromised and has been under dire scrutiny over the past decade and of course, it should be. And when I was a student, my safety was one of my greatest priorities but, some implemented rules under the guise of "safety" were and are... just plain ludicrous. Like who thinks up some of these ideas?

Redditor u/Animeking1108 wanted to discuss how the education system has ideas that sometimes are just more a pain in the butt than a daily enhancement... What was the dumbest rule your school enforced?

One of the golden rules of life? Doctors are merely human. They don't know everything and they make mistakes. That is why you always want to get another opinion. Things are constantly missed.

Redditor u/Gorgon_the_Dragon wanted to hear from doctors about why it is imperative we always get second and maybe third opinions by asking... Doctors of Reddit, what was the worse thing you've seen for a patient that another Doctor overlooked?

Unless again, you're a huge freaking nerd like me. But I think we all have the memory of the moment where we realized learning about history was kinda cool. And they usually start from one weird fact.

Here are a few examples of turning points in learning about history, straight from the keyboards of the people at AskReddit.

U/Tynoa2 asked: What's your favourite historical fact?
