Always better to be forewarned! You are going to feel dumb so look at this first before you scroll down.
Featured here are some pieces of invaluable (?) advice doled out by Actual Advice Mallard, a male duck, one of the animals featured on the subreddit ‘Animal Advice’.
Animal Advice is one of the seven humors and image sharing subreddits of the San Francisco, California, USA based entertainment social networking service and news site ‘Reddit’, started by Steve Huffman and Alexis Ohanian and currently owned by Advance Publications through its subsidiary Conde Nast Publications.
Before you judge Actual Advice Mallard, remember it has reached its iconic status on Advice Animals by virtue of votes it has received from people like us.
Items appearing on Reddit’s pages are submitted by its members and are open for voting exclusively by its members. The up voting and down voting by the members are netted off to determine the rank of every item and is one of the factors that determine which items appear on which page and at which serial number. The other factors are age since submission and the total vote count.
The speed at which new items appear and the frequency with which rankings change is an indicator of the popularity of the site.
Now a further piece of warning before you slide down the page – the mallard’s advice ranges from the banal and the bizarre, to a few interesting and even smart ones – if you ignore the worthless truisms. Have a good excursion!
