"Just another boring afternoon" by David Chandler
Flying cars were once new,
But now it’s “just what you do”
Same for living on an alien moon.
Once you get used to it,
It all becomes old, you admit
And now it’s just a boring afternoon.

Flying cars were once new,

But now it’s “just what you do”

Same for living on an alien moon.

Once you get used to it,

It all becomes old, you admit

And now it’s just a boring afternoon.

The best photos from hobo Nick Kleckner’s journey across America

Nick Kleckner has spent the past five months as a hobo on the move, walking from the shores of Jacksonville, Fla., to the California coast. Along the way, the 25-year-old’s using Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to update his followers on his journey.

“It just kind of started as a way to keep my friends and family updated,” he told the Daily Dot. “When I started, I had eight followers on Twitter. Now I have four or five thousand.

“I just kept them updated, but it started spreading. All of a sudden, I started getting feedback from people around the world who I didn’t know—people contacting me and sending me messages to say how inspiring it’s been.”

Kleckner started snapping photos somewhere in the middle of Texas. Since then, his photostream has played out as one of the truest representations of western migrations and hobo life in existence. The Daily Dot sorted through the masses and fit Kleckner’s best and most iconic shots into the Storify below.

Zach Anner teams up with Reddit for travel show

Remember Zach Anner? The YouTube funnyman with cerebral palsy made Internet headlines last fall when millions of online voters picked him to get his own travel show on the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN).

But shortly after “Rollin’ With Zach” debuted, the Internet forgot about this comedian for a while. Perhaps because his most loyal fans on YouTube, Reddit, Twitter, and 4chan don’t watch OWN, the show got canceled after just six episodes.

Now Anner has a new plan. Instead of making the Internet come to him, he’s taking his show to the Internet. He’s teamed up with Reddit cofounder Alexis “kn0thing” Ohanian to create “Riding Shotgun,” a crowdsourced online travel series.
