I’ve always been interested in the ever dynamic classification of hate on Reddit. As the post modernist set of moralities continues to expand, more and more subjects, ideas, and opinions become taboo. A growing creep of egg shells in Reddit’s ecosystem. One particular subreddit spearheads the outrage operations: /r/AgainstHateSubreddits.
It being a new year, I wanted to get a clearer picture of the sub’s current targets. So I wrote a quick script to parse out all subreddits names from hot post titles and created a simple wordcloud. Font size emphasis is increased by frequency of occurrence.
A compilation of gravity force simulations. Animations show what happens to a stream of particles when the force of gravity changes, or the source of gravity moves. These simulations were baked using Blender’s physics system.
Flower like shapes and interesting stream knots can be seen forming in the video below.
A video compilation showing how fluid behaves at different resolutions. These clips were rendered using the cycles engine in blender 2.79. Two distinct structures were created for the fluid simulations.
I made some animations of crystallographic defect formations using equilateral spheres. Point defects, lattice regions, and other interesting patterns can be seen forming in the video below. This was created using Blender’s rigid body physics system.
Below is an animation of a laser bouncing around a triangle with open vertexes. A link to the Euler problem can be found at projecteuler.net/problem=202. This is just a visualization of the problem. This post does not contain an answer, or any algorithms.
I thought it would be interesting to see how specific subreddits are related to one another by their mods.
Here is an example of a single mod to many sub relationship.
Three root subreddits where chosen: r/The_Donald, r/AgainstHateSubreddits, and r/TheBanOut2018. Below are wordclouds showing what other subreddits share the same mods as the root subreddit. The font size is the scale for how many mods from the root sub are in another sub. The larger the font, the more mods they share with the root sub. For AHS and TheBanOut2018 clouds a mod relationship less than 4 where filtered out.
