So if you internet at all, you know about Reddit’s tradition of inviting on celebrities and Know-it-alls (and sometimes celebrity know-it-alls) for AMA sessions. If you internet at all lately, you may even know about the latest AMA to go viral. Too bad. I’m writing about it anyway.
Because Reddit is a sinkhole of evil, I’m going to source most of this from the best place on the internet for useless fluff: the Huffington Post (the Daily Mail and a few other places had coverage as well). According to HP, this all got started because Texas dad Matthew Clark found that his son Caleb tended to stick with the first answer he gave to any question, even if the question was 2+2 and the Caleb’s answer was 10. Find two pairs of two things? Have Caleb count the total? Didn’t matter.
Since Elon Musk thinks his thinky-thoughts can’t be wrong and he did a popular AMA, Matthew thought Caleb had all the necessary tools to be Reddit’s next font of wisdom.
And, in this case, we are all so glad he did.
