Your social media feed is, to a large extent, a reflection of your personality. You see posts made by artists who inspire you, athletes whom you admire, and publishers that provide information on the topics you care about.

So whenever something pops up there that doesn't align with your values and interests, it sticks out like a silly misplaced emoji in a serious conversation. However, sometimes people run into things that they find are so far-removed from their casual online experience that they feel as if they just discovered a UFO artifact.

Turns out, one platform is particularly rich with these "surprises," and I think you can already sense which one. (Hint: it belongs to Meta.) And there's a whole subreddit to prove it! So to show you just how wild and unpredictable it can be, we invite you to take a look at what the 2.3 million members of r/TerribleFacebookMemes have been reposting. Oh, darn it, I gave it away. Anyway, here you go!

There's no reason to be a d**k to the person just trying to do their job, but they're not wrong.

I don't have the money to pay the dozens of active helpers (not shown on photo) a decent wage to make this possible. I also won't gain the necessary momentum on crowdfunding to pay for this.

In a post titled, 'Return to our Roots,' the moderators of r/TerribleFacebookMemes said that "originally this subreddit was about Boomer memes," but it went through quite an intense period.

"It was about memes so painfully unfunny and out of touch that you would choke on a minion if you had to endure one more cry-laughing emoji on a sad post."

However, since the mods allowed members a lot of freedom, over time the community began to transform "into some kind of unholy abomination where ... most of the posts ... are just outright racism or transphobia."

Wow! So I should alter my whole appearance and style to suit other people's tastes, rather than to suit myself? Never heard that before!.... said no woman ever 🙄

So the moderators had to intervene. "Somewhere in February, a smarter-than-average subscriber in modmail alerted us to the fact that Reddit has a terms of service and today we alert you to that too," they explained in the post.

"Subreddits can get banned and users can get sitewide suspensions for the [things] we feature here. Even if it is meant to laugh at. Even if we explicitly say that agreeing with the bad memes is forbidden."

To be fair, I know so little about computers and programming,I'd probably do that. I'm sure I could make even the toughest, most experienced tech support cry like a baby.

"For some bizarre, unfathomable reason, we do actually like this place," the mods continued. "We want to keep it. We want to see it prosper. So we need to go back to our roots."

They announced that they're working hard to eradicate any racism, transphobia, homophobia, and other issues you could've noticed there. Now, "all posts have to follow the site-wide rules."

This post was made in March, and it seems that they're trying their best to live up to it, even if some relics from the past remain.

Of course, just like other generations, boomers are much more diverse than these memes suggest. Some of the life experiences, and thus worldviews, of a senior in Toronto likely bear little resemblance to one from Tokyo.

After all, this generation has gone from using landlines to flip phones to smartphones and from typewriters to desktops to laptops.

I read that putting on an oversized condom can lead to accidents since the material folds, and then breaks from the friction.

I want to be honest, I don't care what a woman is. I don't care what a man is either. I don't even care what I am. And you know what? It doesn't matter who identifies as what, nobody is hurt by just being friendly to each other

At least it feels like its going in the right direction, that you should not be allowed to compete with females if you went through puberty as a man. More and more high level female athletes speak up about it. How it sucks to train so hard you whole life for a man to come in and break records a woman might never be able to match.

Plus, they aren't hostile towards younger generations 'just because' and aren't criticizing them as much as it sometimes might seem in the media.

Yes, 48 percent of boomers think that a person's chances of success depend more on their merit than factors that are outside of their control, but so do 44 percent of Gen X, 41 percent of millennials, and 40 percent of Gen Z. So there's no big generational divide on this question.

So maybe we should cut them some slack too? After all, every basket of apples can have a variety of aromas, flavors, and textures.

I would much prefer my warriors to be both. I want my warriors to have very well developed critical thinking skills. I want them to understand and create good strategies. I want them to have empathy. I do NOT want them to be mere animals acting on brute strength only I want them to recognize bad orders that shouldn’t be followed when they’re given, instead of acting like robots given their programming and not questioning it. It’s like the people who claim to be doers, not thinkers. That’s not the flex they think it is. Because things work out much better if you do the thinking BEFORE the doing.
