The most popular subreddits give us an idea of what's currently trending and the kinds of things that the majority of people are interested in at any given point in time. Here are the top 20 subreddits on all of Reddit.
There are a lot of people who enjoy reading about technology, but they're not really interested in what's going on with the latest business figures, how much the big tech companies are making or the most recent drama taking place. rFuturology takes all of the stuff that is boring to the adventurous dreamers who want to know about the nuts and bolts of the bod new technologies that are currently being developed. rFuturology features some really cool information on topics such as gene therapy, transhumanism, exoskeletons, biohacking, space travel, and this is just the beginning.
This subreddit is one of the most hilarious if you're into finance, buying, selling or trading stocks, but you also have a great sense of humor.

The memes which try to make the most accurate predictions about which memes will go by the wayside or gain in popularity are patterned after the activities that you would see on the trading floor.
This is an extremely entertaining subreddit, but it's a bit on the odd side. The whole of this sub is run by bots. Markov chains are used for the generation of text-based posts adn comments.

The clips share one thing in common. They build in suspense and you can see the tragedy coming, but then, as if a miracle has occurred out of the blue, the catastrophes are narrowly avoided. Here you'll find everything from athletic events to car accidents and animals who barely escapes becoming a meal. These are really exciting clips and there's always something new popping up.
This is another extremely popular subreddit that is oriented towards the entire family. It's great for people of all ages. The central theme is an animal rescue in reverse. The humans in these clips are not the villains that they appear to be. They're really heroes, but when you play the clip in reverse, as is the case with these, it looks like the rescuers are the ones causing the problems to begin with. It's going to be important to keep in mind, however, that these are reversals because some of the clips are disturbing when viewed in reverse.
