Mod Post Rules of the Subreddit. If these are broken, your comment/post will be removed and you could be banned. You should read this before posting.
Posts must be interesting as fuck (IAF)
This is a purely subjective rule. Just because you find something IAF does not mean it belongs here. It's impossible to define what is IAF, but for a general idea browse the top posts of all time from this subreddit. It's easier to define what isn't IAF, here are most of the things that are NOT IAF.
The content of a post (image/gif/video/article) and title must be interesting and interchangeable. The title must describe the content of the post. A post which has the content of a portrait of Albert Einstein with the title listing all of his accomplishments is not interesting as fuck, the content must show those accomplishments. The content of the post must show/depict what the title says.
Things that aren't IAF
mildly interesting things, kinda interesting things, interesting things
Social media screenshots, or screenshots in general.
No unnecessary sound
Memes, funny things, edgy content
Things that are purely cute
Things that are NSFW
Click bait, "Top 10 best X"
Just because something is old does not inherently make it IAF.
Hold your phone a certain way to see an image, or shake your head to see an image, or light mod/dark mode pictures
Note: Breaking this rule usually just means your post gets removed. (extreme violations, as in you have no idea what belongs here will get you perma banned)
Titles Must be descriptive
Titles should describe the content of the post. If you're going to claim facts/interesting as fuck stuff in the title the image/gif/video/article/content should show that claim in some way. Titles like "Wow, this is awesome", "top 10 best posts EVER" will get you banned. This isn't a click bait subreddit. Titles that "piggy back" off of other posts, like "Since we're posting Mcdonalds...." will also get you banned. You also shouldn't include where you're cross posting it from, just throw a source link in the comments.
We don't need unnecessary information in the title, just describe what you're posting.
Note: Breaking this rule will get you a temp ban in most cases (combined with other broken rules, or multiple offenses will mean a longer temp ban or permanent ban).
If needed provide a source
If you can't completely explain why the content of the post is IAF please comment with more explanation. If your post claims something that most everyone can't easily confirm from reading your title and viewing your content please provide some type of proof of what you claim. Do not claim ownership or creation of something you did not create. Do not post false or misleading information
*Note: Breaking this rules will get you perma banned in most cases. *
Pretty self explanatory, don't post spam, don't spam the subreddit with many links. If you're solely posting to promote yourself/sell something you will be banned.
Note: Breaking this rule will get you permabanned.
No gossip or tabloid type material
This isn't the place for celebrity news, or general "TIL" type posts.
Note: Breaking this rule will get you temp banned in most cases (combined with other broken rules, or multiple offenses will mean a longer temp ban or permanent ban.)
No text on images/gifs/videos
In most cases text on an image is useless. It can be put into the title or into the comment section. Text on gifs is sometimes useful, but still preferred to put information into the title and/or into the comment section. This also encourages discussion. There are some exceptions to this rule, mainly dates or little labeling on images/gifs/videos. Youtube videos are not allowed
Note: Breaking this rule will get you temp banned (combined with other broken rules, or multiple offenses will mean a longer temp ban or permanent ban.)
It's perfectly fine to disagree with anyone about most things, but there is no need to insult the person. Debate/discussion/talk about the idea/content, not the person. If someone is arguging in bad faith, concern trolling, baiting, general trolling, or just being a rude individual REPORT THEM, DO NOT ENGAGE with them.
Note: Breaking this rule will get you at minimum temp banned, the more offenses/worse they are means the longer the ban (combined with other broken rules, or multiple offenses will mean a longer temp ban or permanent ban.)
Other things to note:
If the moderators feel you/your post(s)/your comment(s) are harming the subreddit they will be removed.
This sub filters new users in order to remove spam. If you are a new reddit user, please gain some karma and wait before posting. This is to prevent spam and new users who don't understand reddit
The rules are final, there is no debating them, doing so could increase your ban.

r/interstingasfuck will be joining the subreddit black out starting june 12th to protest the potential upcoming reddit changes
Due to recent API changes announced by Reddit, r/interestingasfuck will be joining the 48 hour subreddit blackout starting June 12th which extends through June 14th. Reddit’s API changes affect more than 3rd party apps. To name a few, the API changes also affect NSFW and 18+ tagged content not being available via the new API, the helpful (and unhelpful) bots, users with accessibility limitations such as the visually-impaired, and potentially moderation tools and RES. During this time, r/interestingasfuck will be put into private mode. You will not be able to view r/interestingasfuck, nor have the ability to submit posts and comments. The moderation team will be monitoring the situation and will re-evaluate after the initial 48 hour period. In the event the blackout is extended, please visit the desktop version of r/interestingasfuck, where a status update will be left via a custom private subreddit message.

Baby green heron learns how to use ladder after falling out of tree.
We have a family of green herons living in our oak tree. We’re in a residential area without water so it is rare to see them, especially nesting. One of the babies fell from the nest. We noticed it in distress and unable to fly up or climb the trunk. We spent an hour setting up various objects as ramps for it to try to get in the tree. The ladder finally did the trick.
