That was a question in the What-If book (although it was on a planetary scale).

TIL (well, YIL) that because of his various cameos Stan Lee is the third highest grossing actor of all time (and has, by far, the best film average). http://www.the-numbers.com/people/records/

So nothing to do with his earnings, but the total gross take of all the films he's been in is the third highest? Makes sense. Weirdly worded though.

The chart of actors who've been in the most grossing films in a supporting role is fun. Check out number 2 - he's only done voices for animated stuff and things like Transformers. Who is he? No fucking idea!

2 Frank Welker 29 $4,086,206,421 $140,903,670
3 Hugo Weaving 18 $3,834,951,387 $213,052,855
4 Gary Oldman 17 $3,513,567,164 $206,680,421
5 Warwick Davis 14 $3,506,957,852 $250,496,989
6 Jack Angel 18 $3,436,121,459 $190,895,637

He's Scooby Doo!

(And also "the animal noise guy". He "voiced" Nibbler in Futurama, for example. He was a number 1 for quite a while.)

Yes, I knew Frank Welker was Nibbler right away. He's on some of the Futurama DVD commentaries and he's incredibly prolific.

Also Uni from the Dungeons & Dragons cartoon - which is the same noise, come to think of it.

Speaking of voice actors, Harry Shearer might well leave The Simpsons.

He voices (among others) Ned Flanders, Principal Skinner, Mr Burns, Waylon Smithers, Lenny, Jasper, Otto, Kent Brockman, Reverend Lovejoy, and Julius Hibbert.

Reddit is currently self-destructing due to DRAMAH.

This is a good subreddit for info: https://www.reddit.com/r/Blackout2015/

It'll turn out that the woman who was fired was stealing or something else that warrants firing. Mark my words

Ugh, Christ, there's some properly hysterical stuff on there; not least a poll of how many people want the fired person to replace the CEO (why? what's the point of even asking that question?) and a thread hilariously entitled "They're probably just going to try to wait it out. KEEP THE PRESSURE ON UNTIL IT'S RECTIFIED. Downvote everything on the frontpage that isn't about this (and upvote everything that is). We can basically ruin their website: BECAUSE WE ARE THEIR FUCKING WEBSITE."

They're quite right, of course. The list of blacked-out subreddits is pretty enormous.

Happy 4th July, Reddit execs!

Reddit is an unusable, unreadable nightmare. How the fuck can you follow anything on that link?

This is so true. The mobile version of the site is much MUCH better.

(And not the shitty Beta version either)

I like the beta mobile version.

Obviously I use RES to view the main site, as I'm not insane.

Pao (the CEO) has resigned, so they're half way there.

The other half was always going to be the difficult one.

Bwa-ha-ha-haa take that pitchfork mob!

"Wong posted the particularly illuminating missive in response to today’s official announcement that the site isn’t supposed to be a “bastion of free speech.” With the overarching message of the post being—way to get rid of the only person actually fighting for you, idiots."

Depends if you consider hundreds of thousands of users to be a 'pitchfork mob', and those were the ones who could be bothered to sign the petition. It didn't seem that Pao was a good CEO at all, what with her history of spurious sexual-discrimination lawsuits (that she lost) and using her newfound reddit power to prevent salary negotiations (because women aren't as good at it).

I'm been watching the drama unfold. yishan is revelling in his ex-ceo ability to declare his superior knowledge a bit too much. More than once he's said something that's been directly contradicted by people that actually work there (like saying a board member was Pao's boss where it's actually the other way around), and other such chuffing nonsense.

The fact that voat.co is pretty much an identical reddit clone just demonstrates that in terms of the technical platform provided, there isn't much novelty about anything the management does. I'd say the site's success, beyond it's self-feeding notoriety, is just the ability to stay up under load for the majority of the time. Everything else is pretty much built by users.

Not really. The board appoints the CEO, and the CEO is responsible to the board.

Don't argue with me, argue with the ex-ceo disagreeing with the incumbent staff. I haven't made a single post on reddit about the ongoing guff. It's mostly just a content and link aggregator with comments and dank memes.
