Known mainly as a place for Libertarians, jailbait creeps and fans of gore to swap tips on growing weed, photos of under-13 swim teams and videos of Mexican gang members having their throats cut by members of rival cartels, Reddit also has a cute tradition where members state their -sometimes weird, sometimes not- occupations and say 'Ask Me Anything' (AMA). People then, err, ask them anything, and everyone learns a little something from it. 

Recently, it's become pretty standard for directors to do AMAs about their upcoming movies. Good old Harmony Korine took a break from hanging out with Worst Guy Ever David Blaine to answer some questions about Spring Breakers. He was being deliberately obtuse, which is something Bob Dylan invented in 1965, and that's always fun to watch, check it out (via):
