Titillating Fact: Energy drinks have exceptional effect on me and cause me to code like a madman.

Things he's loving:

1. Pranking my friends on Facebook! I made this site as a joke weekend project, and it sort of took off (partly thanks to Chris Gayomali's excellent article here). People from all over the world have made more than 5,000 creative pranks. I love to see what people come up with next.

2. ESports What is ESports? ESports is what you get when you mash competitive elements of sports and video games together. I'm a big supporter of ESports and would like to see it grow. With the recent TI4 tournament considered a success by ESPN, I can see ESports growing nicely each year. Currently I'm in love with League of Legends due to its ultra-competitive nature and what its parent company, Riot Games (ranked no.4 in 25 best companies to work for in 2013), is doing for the world of ESports.

3. Reddit Can't get enough of it. While I browse the front page almost daily, I do have a few special subreddits I would love to share.

  • AskReddit: There are sooo many incredible topics everyday. You will learn so much about the world and people around you.
  • WoahDude: This section is filled with incredible things that will make you say "woah."
  • Explain Like I'm Five: This section will take any question you have about a complicated subject and explain it in a way a five-year-old could understand. (Well, not exactly, but in very simple terms.)
  • Photoshop Battles: Who doesn't love Photoshop? This is a nice section where you are presented with an image and asked to edit it in creative ways.

Shameless Plug: If you want a different way of browsing Reddit, checkout another one of my projects: Randomdit
