I wonder if he could hear it go off

/r/place event ended

For those who don't know it was an event where reddit users could only put one pixel at a time every 10 minutes, became every 5 minutes later.  It is actually a fairly interesting study into how humans cooperate and function on a field of limited resources, in this case pixels and what those pixels make up

The final picture

Animation of how mad people were over the US flag, which seems to be the flag that took the most abuse

That's really fascinating -- it's just like watching a colony of living things grow and compete.   It's funny to see the seething mass of pink and black that occasionally settles into OSU.

Wow, this is so much interesting!
I wonder what's wrong with USA flag though. Also I can't see many flag that I expected to see :)

Nothing really, the internet just seems to have bandwagon hate towards the U.S.

I think a lot of people don't hate USA, but they hate Donald Trump.

I think a lot of people don't hate USA or Donald Trump, and most people who hate Donald Trump (outside US of course), hate USA, always have.

I'm not a huge fan of the US. What bothers me most is our bipartisan system, which spends more time fighting over itself than getting stuff done. And Trump... he's a different story.

Random Comedy thing:
Sometimes I wonder (at school) if I'm in a school or a Insane Asylum. In short, it's absolute madness. I remember a few months ago some kid randomly pushed another kid onto the track so hard that I actually had to hold him back. Pretty much if you took that one scene from Toy Story 3 (I can't remember what it's actually called) and put the older kids faces on the kindergarteners and you have a accurate representation of my school.

I just discovered Youtube has 360 degree videos. I wish I had VR goggles.
