There's a popular new subreddit over at Reddit
that's all about dumbing it down. ExplainLikeImFive is a gathering place for interesting questions and simple and patient answers. It has blazed onto the Reddit scene, attracting more than 22,000 readers in the first 13 hours (when this post was written).
There are already a bunch of great questions, and here are a few of my favorites so far. A quick warning: some of the language on Reddit can tend toward the salty variety. If f-bombs disturb your sensibilities, you might want to pass on these.
I'm going to keep my eye on this subreddit for greener Q&As and will share them when the mood strikes.
is another excellent subreddit for the inquisitive reader.
