How I got 10k post karma on reddit with (and without)

Profile image made by AI Gahaku Back in 2006-2007 my friend and I put together a spreadsheet of 20 or so high-level achievements called “Everything’s a Contest”. This included goals like “Photograph a live grizzly bear in the wild”, “Have something named after you”, and “Get 10,000 (post) karma on Reddit”. Despite our heated discussions about what should be on this list and the criteria for success none of us ever really did anything substantial to complete any of these goals.
