Reddit has a new sub-category that allows anyone to post examples of first world anarchists from both the human as well as the animal world alike. Simply put, many of these are silly rules that may have been too strongly worded, or in the example above, someone who decided to eat an "After Eight" mint at 7:59. Other examples include: disobeying a no thumbs up notice and a "No China on Patio" sign. Continue reading to see them all.

You read that right, fire officials say that a man from West Seattle actually used a lighter and a can of spray paint to kill spiders in his laundry room when the house went up in flames. Fire crews originally battled the blaze from a distance after learning there may be ammunition inside, and were eventually able to extinguish the fire, but not before it did significant damage to the structure.

Another week, another batch of strange knockoff products that actually exist and should be avoided at all costs, especially if someone on Craigslist tries to pull a bait and switch at night in a dark parking lot. First up, we have "Deats by Nani", which almost certainly pale in comparison to the real Beats By Dre.
