The internet was originally created for military purposes, and later expanded to be a communications tool for researchers and the like. But we all know that the guys behind the project knew its ultimate goal was so folks could share awesome stuff on it.

And as soon as folks figured out how to make that work, Reddit came around and eventually so did r/Awesome. r/Awesome is a dedicated community, currently with around 1 million members, that shares everything that its members think is awesome.

Whether it’s something they found in real life or on the internet, something they themselves or their friends created, or even experiences of any caliber—it finds its way to this subreddit for everyone to partake in and enjoy.

We’ve gone through the subreddit in search of the best of the best things people found that just had to be shared, and compiled a list of them which you can find below. And if you’re going that way, give your favorites an upvote, comment, and share this article with your friends if you think your relationship with them is awesome.

If you’ve been diligent in reading this article, you’ll already more or less know what r/Awesome is all about.

But in case you missed it, r/Awesome is a lovely part of Reddit (a social news aggregation, content rating, and discussion website) that is dedicated to all things awesome.

No, seriously, there are effectively very few limitations as to what you can find there. The description says that it is a subreddit “for everything that is awesome!” and the only rule the moderators are asking folks to follow (apart from the technical no gore, no smut, and no screenshots requirement) is to post “things that are incredibly rare or cool, not some ordinary cats, chicken, scenery, drawings or t-shirts etc., they are not awesome…”

Sure, you can argue with the chicken part, but the content is ultimately up to the users to judge. More or less.

In general, the subreddit is home to mostly visual content. This ranges from people’s personal artistic endeavors and creations to feel-good and positive news to places people visited and were left in awe by to just regular memes and impressive things found around the internet.

Much of it has a positive twist to it—in the vein of restoring faith in humanity, or humans being bros to each other—but in other cases it will be things that most don’t see or even think about, a certain kind of new experience that is, at the very least, interesting and satisfying.
