1. The Pro
They get shit done. They carry a gram in their pocket at all times and another gram in their shoe incase they finish the one in their pocket. In the time it would take you to pack a bowl, they've already rolled two of the cleanest joints you've ever seen in your life. You'd call them a stoner, but that sounds like an insult and their propensity for getting high is much more deserving of praise than rebuke. They've clearly made a skill out of getting stoned. Also, even if you did want to insult them, you wouldn't because they usually give you weed and you're not ready to severe that connection just yet.
2. The One Who "Doesn't Know What They're Doing"
They start acting dumb long before the effects of the THC kick in. Despite the fact that you've gotten high with them multiple times, they still pretend like they're some naive do-gooder who never touches the stuff. After walking them through how to use the bong they've used countless times before, you have to hold the lighter for them as they inhale and ask, "Did I do it right?" They seem to think that the longer they play dumb, the longer nobody will notice that they're just a huge mooch, but the truth is that most people noticed ages ago.
3. The One Who Actually Doesn't Know What They're Doing
You know that this person isn't faking the fact that they don't know what they're doing because they try to act like they DO know what they're doing and fail miserably. Not only did they call it "herb", they also just put the lighter to the bottom of the pipe like it's heroine or something. When they finally do get some smoke, they cough for a solid 10 minutes in the most pained way imaginable. Since it's clear they don't do this much, you wonder why they started now. You start to think that maybe you inadvertently peer pressured them into smoking herb and feel like one of those douchey bad influences they teach you about in health class.
4. The Relapser
In a past life, they were a pro but then they grew up. They reached a point where getting high felt too childish and left it all behind....except right now for some reason. Maybe their kids are at their grandparents or maybe they had a really stressful meeting that day, but in either case they've decided to dip back into their old ways. Though they seem to be enjoying themself, it still feels a little bit awkward. Whatever muscle they had that made smoking with them fun seems to have atrophied, and now it just kinda feels like hanging out with your parents.
5. The One Who REALLY Enjoys It
You thought you liked weed, but not compared to this person you don't. They way it hit them, it seems like they have some sort of special chemical in their body for getting high that you don't produce. They laugh like a monster at every dumb thing they see. They eat food with an enthusiasm usually only seen in people who've been trapped in a dungeon all day. They question anything and everything about their own existence. They're having the time of their life. Honestly, you'd be jealous of them if they didn't look like such an idiot right now.
6. The One Who Doesn't
You've smoked with this person on many occasions and you don't know why. They honestly seem to hate weed. When they toke up they only seem to get the negative effects. They spend the entire looking paranoid and freaking out about their own mortality. They don't laugh once, or even make a noise. You don't know what it is their getting out of the experience, but it must be something because no matter how many experiences they have, they always end up coming back for more.
7. The Tryhard
You're not sure if they're actually high or if they just watched a Cheech and Chong movie once and are channeling that. They certainly WANT you to believe that they're high because they keep telling you over, and over, and over again. They kinda look seem like if your mom wrote a screenplay and included a stoner character in it. Their highness is so performed and over the top that you'd swear they were a really bad narc if they weren't one of your good friends. Smoking weed is fun, but it's not cool like this person thinks it is. Trying to act like it is demeans us all.
Katie and Grant are sick of all of CollegeHumor's BS and they're not gonna take it anymore! They're gonna start their own company, and things will be VERY SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT IF AT ALL!!!

1. You already know it's good
New shows are a gamble - sure, it might be getting lots of critical acclaim, but what if it just doesn't click with you? What if you're bored by the premise, or don't enjoy watching the characters, or find the dialogue lame? What if it just kinda sucks?
You know what DOESN'T suck? That show that you already know is great - The Office. You've seen it countless times, love the characters, know the storylines by heart, and can quote the dialogue easily. It's like an old friend at this point - it's comforting, but most importantly YOU ALREADY KNOW HOW GOOD IT IS, so there's NO RISK INVOLVED.
2. That new edgy, complex, challenging drama has hour-long episodes. The Office is only 22 minutes long!
Hourlong dramas are asking SO MUCH of you - especially in the age of streaming, where hourlong dramas are often ACTUALLY ONE HOUR LONG. At least network and basic cable dramas have the good sense to stick to around 44 minutes long (to leave room for commercials). An hour is a really long time to commit to an episode of TV that you may or may not enjoy - especially because that means you can't really listlessly scroll on your phone for a full hour, otherwise you won't be able to follow the plot of this new show you're unfamiliar with. But you know what ISN'T asking too much of your time? The Office.
The Office is a breezy 22 minutes - that's practically nothing! Even if it isn't your favorite episode, it'll be over before you know it - and you can chill and spend most of that time on your phone. Plus, it's got commercial breaks built in, so each section of the episode of nicely divided and sectioned off. Even the few hourlong episodes are pretty neatly separated into a "Part 1" and "Part 2" structure so you can stop halfway through if you feel like doing something else.
3. You don't really have to pay that much attention since you've already seen it like 20 times
You are so familiar with this show, it's not that big of a deal if you spend most of the time on your phone or making a sandwich or anything. You can drop in at any point in any episode and enjoy it, because you know the characters, you know the plotlines, and you can just enjoy the experience of watching The Office without having to pay constant attention to new characters, new plotlines, and other complicated background stuff that all the modern complex hourlong dramas shove into every episode.
4. You might catch a few jokes you missed before
And while you don't have to pay TOO much attention, you're so familiar with everything that you'll find yourself paying attention to the little details you may have never noticed before (since your eyes don't HAVE to be focused on whatever's in the forefront, 'cuz you know what's gonna go down between Jim and Karen anyways). Like in "Did I Stutter?", where Dwight's organizational chart has Creed's name in quotes, revealing that Dwight already knew that Creed was using a fake identity:
See? If you were watching Legion instead of an old episode of The Office, you wouldn't have caught that!
5. You can really deepen your appreciation for how much care and effort went into this show
The Office is a legit great show - the premise is so simple and restrained, it became a playground for actors, writers, and directors to really hone in on a bunch of relatable, strange characters and the relationships they had with one another. We spend a good chunk of our lives at work - and most of us, at jobs we don't really enjoy. To get through each day at a miserable, boring job, we have to rely on finding some simple pleasures - a friendship, a crush, little pranks, playing games, making fun of the boss, etc. The Office captured that incredibly simple truth so effectively and so perfectly, which is why it continues to be one of the most popular shows around years after it left the airwaves.
And each rewatch reveals more about the show, and about yourself as you move through life - whether it's appreciating the way the show evolves Ryan from a nondescript blank slate to a heedless self-involved douchebag, or how effectively the show landed the Jim/Pam relationship (getting together star-crossed lovers is usually a death knell for most shows - but The Office found a way to believably build their relationship and keep it sweet and delightful without introducing a ton of extraneous and unbelievable drama), or how they created one of the saddest, most infuriating, most lovable characters ever in Michael Scott. It's a great show, featuring some of the best, most insightful writing and acting you'll ever see.
Sure, that new hot cool show that everyone's talking about may be great, but in harrowing times like these, sometimes we just need a big warm comfy blanket, and that's what The Office is.
The real magic behind Reddit is that it is such a diverse mix of individuals, communities, and perspectives - if you know where to look. There exists a stereotype of an average Redditor - young-ish male, geeky, antisocial, and probably a little misogynistic / racist - but it's not an entirely fair one. Sure, you can find PLENTY of those types on Reddit (particularly amongst its most populous and casual subreddit communities, like r/funny and r/videos), but Reddit is FILLED TO THE BRIM with smaller communities that most visitors to the site/app may never be aware exist. There are over one million individual subreddits - and while many of those are abandoned or just extremely small, plenty are reasonably sizable and active. And specific. VERY SPECIFIC.
But amongst this multitude of subreddits, there exists one that is particularly unique - because it is SO specific, SO brutally honest and self-critical about itself, and...nearly impossible to remember the name of. Because it's an acronym that's 20 characters long. Of course, I'm referring to r/UNBGBBIIVCHIDCTIICBG.
At over 400,000 subscribers (as of this writing), it ranks amongst the top 250 of all subreddits - despite having one of the most convoluted and impossible-to-remember names. It gets immediately referenced in the comment threads of other subreddits frequently (namely r/gifs and r/pics). And the reason is because referencing it is basically users either being incredibly honestly about themselves, or calling out everyone else for their incredibly specific reaction.
You see, the subreddit's acronym stands for "Upvoted Not Because Girl, But Because It Is Very Cool; However, I Do Concede That I Initially Clicked Because Girl."
The general ethos of the subreddit (if that acronym is still escaping your grasp a bit) is summed up by the mods with these three rules regarding the type of content allowed in the sub:
The Post Should Be Interesting
If it's being upvoted at a percentage above 75%, then it's more than likely interesting. However, submissions that focus mainly on bland or titillating content will be removed. That includes fail posts, which are not allowed here. Also, if you want to see girls in yoga pants doing typical yoga moves that most yogi can do, there are other subs for you to subscribe to. Any post being removed to the above can result in a one year ban on your account. Low-Voted posts will be removed.
No Sexual Attention or NSFW Content
Do not post comments or titles that sexually objectify women in any way. Do not make sexual puns. Do not post NotSafeForWork content anywhere in this sub. Do not link to any nsfw content or subs. And don't be surprised if you get a one year ban on your account or shadowbanned on flagrant comments for ignoring this rule.
The Post Must Reference A Female
This sub is more than just a thumbnail and the post itself is more important than a thumbnail. This sub is popular and old enough now that it is obvious you clicked because of girl just because she was posted in this sub. However, in keeping with the theme of the sub, if a girl is not visible in the thumbnail, then put her in the title somehow. Keep in mind that just because you don't see her in the thumbnail doesn't mean she can't be seen by other people using different devices.
So basically - it's a subreddit for a very specific type of behavior that exists on Reddit, unique to their platform. Before clicking on a media link (for videos, gifs, or pictures), people get a smal thumbnail that previews what the content will look like. More often than not, thumbnails that feature a seemingly-attractive woman TENDS to get more attention and engagement than the average post (as someone who's made lots of internet content at CollegeHumor and Dorkly and has seen traffic reports and analytics, this rings EXTREMELY TRUE to me). But the kind of content that is just that - an attractive lady - is a little dull. This subreddit is for people who clicked to see the attractive woman, but ENGAGED with the post by upvoting because the gif or video featured something particularly impressive or cool. It's deeply honest and revealing - there's a certain sadness in admitting you were just clicking something because you were mildly turned on by a small thumbnail, only to find out the woman you were objectifying is actually a talented individual who has a lot more going for her than her looks, serving as a reminder that all women (and people in general!) have richer inner lives and things about them than just their appearance.
r/UNBGBBIIVCHIDCTIICBG was created a little over three years ago by Redditor/mod Nuke_The_Moon, inspired by a comment by AboutHelpTools3 during an inventive back and forth in the comment section of a submission to r/gifs that involved a pretty woman...who was HELLA good at smoke rings:
The amount of times that subreddit is casually referenced in the comments of dozens of subreddits (although still namely r/gifs) is pretty astounding - while there are plenty of other subs dedicated to such specific sets of emotions, none are anywhere near as popular as UNBGBBIIVCHIDCTIICBG. It's a pattern of behavior that grew so common and well-understood, that a 20 character acronym subreddit instantly became one of Reddit's most populated and active communities. And the nice thing that - while there IS a tendency to reinforce certain beauty standards amongst what gets upvoted - the core philosophy of the subreddit is to appreciate talent and skill OVER just someone being attractive, and to admit you're a horny loser who needs to be better when you're on the internet.
So sit back, relax, and enjoy a few of UNBGBBIIVCHIDCTIICBG's best offerings:

1. Cookie Monster never actually eats any cookies.
Cookie Monster is one resident of Sesame Street who actually lives up to his name, but not in the way most people might think. He's not a monster who loves cookies - he's the monster that all cookies should fear. For Cookie Monster doesn't love eating cookies - he just wants to DESTROY them.
Cookie Monster never eats a single cookie. He never ingests any of them - just mashes them up in his hideous black maw and spits the chunks back onto the floor so that no one can enjoy them. And he does this whenever he sees any cookies - and does it to EVERY cookie there is. He doesn't leave any behind for anyone else - he must ruin ALL OF THE COOKIES. He is truly a monster.
2. Vegetables are sentient...but they're still food.
Here's a weird thing about the larger Muppet-verse as a whole - what's the deal with food? Vegetables and fruits are often seen being eaten as normal food, but then other times....we see that vegetables and fruits are sentient beings, who can talk and think and move, all on their own accord. So are the vegetarians in the world of Sesame Street still essentially carnivores? They're killing and consuming actual living, thinking beings - which is actually A LOT worse than most IRL carnivores, because at least (most) animals that are slaughtered for meat can't CONVERSE WITH YOU about the morality of all of that.
But the vegetables on Sesame Street CAN. And maybe you think there's a difference between sentient and non-sentient vegetables that is just never really made clear, right? WRONG. They have specifically indicated that the talking vegetables not only are the same as the food vegetables, but they are in fact ENCOURAGING PEOPLE TO EAT THEM AND THEIR BRETHREN.
In the season 42 episode, "Veggies Revolt", a piece of broccoli leads a protest on Sesame Street, complaining that vegetables aren't being eaten enough. Time after time, the vegetables freak out when other people decide not to eat their veggies, or say that they don't like to eat veggies. The veggie horde is only satisfied once all of the people on Sesame Street start eating vegetables again and sing a song in praise of how delicious and nutritious eating vegetables are.
Yes - they love to hear that people ENJOY CONSUMING THEIR BODIES FOR SUSTENANCE.
3. The Count isn't what you think he is...
I mean, I get it - he's a "count" in the mold of Count Dracula and his whole thing is that he loves counting. That's a nice enough pun, but does it justify a VAMPIRE LIVING IN THIS QUAINT UPPER WESTSIDE NEW YORK NEIGHBORHOOD? There is really nothing like The Count - everyone else is cute nondescript "monsters" or animals, or actual people. There are no other evil creatures of legend hanging around Mr. Hooper's store - just The Count.
But here's the really crazy thing about The Count - he's NOT a vampire.
Yes, you read that right. The fangs, the fondness for bats, the castle...all just a coincidence. According to the 2001 edition of Sesame Street Muppets Drawing Guide, the official reference for drawing Sesame Street characters, The Count is specifically "not a vampire." This is likely to do with the fact that this is a show for children, and within the last few decades became more cognizant that it might be a little freaky for young children that a character on Sesame Street is feasting on the flesh and blood of virgins at night.
Complicating things is a recent Wired video, wherein the cast of Sesame Street answers often Googled questions about them - including "is the count from sesame street a vampire", to which The Count responds:
So - generally - he DOES identify as a vampire, but doesn't suck blood or have any of the weaknesses to traditional vampires, and technically isn't an actual vampire (even though he claims to be). That's the deal with The Count.
4. The Muppet characters are living in a state of arrested development Hell
Sesame Street is a unique franchise, in that it has consistently been on the air, creating new episodes, for nearly 50 years now. 50 years! That's an incredible feat, and a testament to the quality and care that has always gone into the show. But that also brings up some very strange questions - why are all of the Muppet characters trapped in a limbo-esque existence?
Time moves forward on Sesame Street - the human characters age and die, technology gets updated, and references stay with the times. The only thing that doesn't change are the Muppets themselves. And it wouldn't be THAT big a deal for many of them - Oscar the Grouch, Bert & Ernie, etc. are all adults who have matured, so their state of frozen semi-immortality isn't quite that big a deal. But it IS a big deal for the "child" characters, like Big Bird and Elmo.
Big Bird is supposed to "represent" a six year old's perspective, and Elmo is meant to be a character that's around three years old. This is to make the show relatable to younger viewers by having characters who act, think, and view the world the same way they do. Big Bird needs help understanding broad concepts about the world (famously, understanding death), while Elmo needs more basic help - learning things about shapes and colors and numbers. But here's the thing: Elmo has been learning his numbers and shapes for DECADES now. And he's not getting any smarter.
While Sesame Street is a paradise for most, it is Hell for Big Bird and Elmo - and they're too "young" to even comprehend that. They are not growing or maturing or retaining any learning - they are forever trapped in the minds of children, incapable of aging or reaching adulthood. They are stuck being taught BASIC concepts about the world every single day, with no signs of any of it sticking.
It's almost like they're all vampires - which would actually be a decent fan theory: the reason why no one questions the Count's presence is because the Count turned EVERY Muppet on Sesame Street into a vampire too, and he is their unquestioned master and sire.
5. I STILL CAN'T FIGURE OUT HOW TO GET TO SESAME STREET.
An upper westside neighborhood where everyone seems to live in brownstones, regardless of whether or not they seem to have jobs or any money? A nice, crime-free NYC neighborhood that hasn't been gentrified to hell by wealthy developers? Where neighbors are friendly and help one another? ANSWER THE PREMISE OF YOUR THEME SONG, FOR GOD'S SAKE: HOW DO I GET TO THIS MYTHICAL PLACE?!
WARNING: SPOILERS FOR THE MOVIE "A QUIET PLACE", OBVIOUSLY.
1. Why not set up camp near the waterfall or river?
We know there are relatively few ways for humans to protect themselves against the "Death Angels" who wiped out civilization as we know it - being extraordinarily quiet at all times, very specific high pitch frequency sounds, and consistently noisy areas, like the rushing water of a river or a waterfall.
So, hey, maybe instead of living on a farm (where there are no natural background noises to drown out any accidental noises you may make, like say a falling picture frame), why not set up camp next to a waterfall? Not only would you be a little freer with your ability to talk and make noise, but you WOULDN'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT DYING WHEN YOU'RE 8 MONTHS PREGNANT AND TRYING TO GIVE BIRTH WHILE REMAINING TOTALLY SILENT. For real - Evelyn was 8 months pregnant, and they KNEW giving birth would be a possibility at pretty much any moment. She'd given birth THREE TIMES BEFORE, and my guess is she understood that the birthing process can be a little bit painful - especially when you live on a post-apocalyptic Earth and have no access to doctor, anesthetics, or anything that could dull the pain.
If they didn't want to set up permanent camp by a waterfall (and I'm not sure why they wouldn't, given the circumstances), they should have AT LEAST set themselves up at a temporary one there once Evelyn entered her third trimester.
2. Why were newspapers printing headlines like "Sound is the key" when that would mean they knew the sound of the printing press would attract the monsters?!
A Quiet Place does an extraordinary job at giving the audience all the exposition they need without any characters actually having to say it, simply from the detritus left behind in the ruins of society. The grocery store is largely ransacked, except for crunchy noisy bags of potato chips and the like. And, notably, there are old newspapers strewn about - about how society was falling and that "sound is the key."
But it's that last headline that gives me pause - because if newspaper journalists knew the monsters were attracted to sound, you know what would be a TERRIBLE idea? Continuing to run a mass-scale printing press to get the message across, because those kind of industrial machines are LOUD. AS. HELL. You know what else is loud? Newspapers - made of a kind of paper that crinkles and crunches very easily, making a decent amount of noise if you were flipping through one.
Honestly, it's pretty impressive the monsters didn't destroy every printing press in the world (along with killing all the people who ran it) on day one.
3. How do they fart? Or poop? WHAT HAPPENS IF THEY SNORE?!
Consciously, the Abbotts are able to control themselves to a pretty extreme degree, to the point where they basically don't make any recognizable noises for something like a year and a half (barring one sliiiight misstep involving a toy rocket). It's really impressive - but I'm still not sure how exactly they account for the more "involuntary" noises the human body can make.
I'm talking about farting, pooping, and snoring. Sometimes, I just have a real nasty fart, and I can't help it. Sometimes, my poop is loud as hell and that's just the way it is. Especially with Regan, the deaf daughter - sometimes I THINK I'm doing a quiet fart, but then it comes out and it's loud. Would Regan even be aware?
But at least those two things are happening while I'm conscious, and I could hold a pillow up to my ass or something if I really had to. But then comes snoring - and I got no way to deal with that. Do the Abbotts always have one person stay awake, ready to throw a pillow on any family member who might snore? Do they all just happen to be perfect sleepers who never snore?
Just give me ONE scene of John Krasinski taking an extremely cautious dump, that's all I ask.
4. Why didn't they try to abort the baby? Or use EXTENSIVE birth control?!
Okay, this is something of an unsavory question, but one I couldn't help wondering during the film - WHY IN GOD'S NAME WOULD THEY ALLOW THEMSELVES TO HAVE A BABY?!
Beyond the reality of the birthing process being LOUD and PAINFUL and DANGEROUS AS HELL (no doctors can be a REAL problem when you need a c-section), it's what comes after that could cause the most trouble: the baby itself. Have you ever tried explaining to a newborn baby that they MUST be quiet or everyone will die? Hint - it will not work out. Babies cry. A LOT. And loudly. And there is no way you can reason with a newborn.
So...they obviously probably shouldn't have been having any sex without extensive birth control (and really, I find it a littttttttttle hard to believe they were ever feeling too sexual in the nightmare hellworld they were in JUST A FEW MONTHS after their youngest child had been brutally murdered by A LITERAL MONSTER), but when Evelyn did figure out she was pregnant (cue images of trying to stay silent while heaving during morning sickness), why didn't they do anything about it?
Keeping the baby meant endangering EVERYONE'S lives - Evelyn, Lee, and their two other children. It wouldn't have been that difficult to find some pharmaceutical drugs that would essentially act as a chemical abortion, to spare themselves the risk a baby would present.
Or, of course, JUST GO LIVE NEAR THE GODDAMN WATERFALL.
5. They sure planted A LOT OF CORN with no machinery or technology (and in PERFECT rows, too), huh?
Listen - they probably had A LOT of time on their hands, given they couldn't talk or do anything that would make noise, but the idea of planting THAT MANY CORN FIELDS with such perfect precision AND ALSO HARVEST IT without using any machinery and without making any noise strains believability a bit too much (I realize I'm saying that about an alien-monster movie). The film mostly does a great job at worldbuilding and displaying (with great attention to detail) how the Abbotts have managed to survive and the lengths they've had to go to, so the fact that John Krasinski and Emily Blunt have somehow John Henry'd all 20th century farming innovations WHILE REMAINING TOTALLY SILENT is a bit much.
6. How were RACCOONS still alive?!
Raccoons are noisy goddamn little critters - and while pretty much every other kind of animal bit it over the course of the year-and-a-half the movie covered, somehow RACCOONS were still alive? Raccoons are loud as hell and don't give a damn about anything - there is no way they would have made it THAT LONG (although the movie does obliterate the poor lil guys pretty much immediately after introducing them).
7. So a shotgun and some high frequency noise was able to kill the creature? BUT ALL THE WORLD'S MILITARY MIGHT COULDN'T FIGURE OUT SOMETHING AS EFFECTIVE?!
We know the combined might of all the militaries in the world couldn't fend off the monsters - all of the technology and power they had were worthless when going up against these beasts. But, then again, they never tried "high pitched noises" and "shotguns" apparently? Given their armor clearly doesn't cover their entire bodies, wouldn't just a bunch of flamethrowers and bombs been pretty effective against them, even without the high-pitched noise?
8. How is John Krasinski THIS FUCKING TALENTED?!
So, let's get this straight: not only is John Krasinski one of the most charming, effortlessly funny leading men in sitcom history, but he's one of the most gifted, compelling dramatic actors around? AND ALSO HE DIRECTED THIS THING?!
I guess it shouldn't come as the biggest surprise - on The Office, he was able to communicate more with a facial expression than most actors could do with a full page monologue. His whole deal has been honing the ability to say so much without saying anything at all - a talent that provides endless returns in both comedy and drama. And goddamn, was this a beautifully directed film. So many scenes dripping with tension, using sound in ways few films have ever thought to do. Crafting fully-developed characters and relationships using only visuals - and having them still be so likable and captivating. Oh, and also HE CO-WROTE THIS?!
So - he was an integral part of one of the best sitcoms ever, he just started his directing career with one of the best debuts ever, and OH YEAH he's a handsome lumberjack man who made me and everyone else in the theater weepy as hell. Also he's TOTALLY JACKED:
No one should be allowed to be THIS talented and THIS handsome.
