Before the internet, you could go into the library and feel overwhelmed. There's so much information in all these books, and there's no chance you'll ever get to read them all! But now that we have not just a library's worth of information in our pockets but the information of all the world's libraries combined in our pockets, we have to just shrug our shoulders and acknowledge that we're not going to know everything. Sorry.
That's why depositories like Reddit's /r/InterestingAsF-ck subreddit are so important. They collect all the most interesting information that could have so easily slipped past you and serves it up on a silver platter.
We've collected some of the most interesting pictures the subreddit's ever produced. Get ready to look at these pictures, nod your head, and go, "yes... yes, this is interesting."

There's magic everywhere — even inside rocks.When this Redditor split open a rock, they were able to show off the stunning opal inside. Meanwhile, the only thing I ever find inside the rocks I split open are more of the same rock or, one time, the key to my neighbor Keith Everson's house. (He hid his spare inside a fake rock. Pretty smart, if you think about it.)
