bill-swift - September 2, 2012

A couple of days ago, President Obama logged on to Reddit and fended off questions from Reddit users as part of the sites 'IAmA' series. If you're not familiar with the site, it's basically where famous or influential people go online and answer questions or chat with the users of the site.

The President logged on at 4:30 and attracted so many users and questions that he brought down the site. It was definitely an impressive feat for Reddit and probably a huge plus for Obama's campaign. Anyhow, if you missed it, here are a couple of silly questions that some people asked the President. And because they were so silly, some of them didn't really warrant a response.

Interested in future IAmA chats? Director Rian Johnson (who directed the up-and-coming Looper starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is scheduled to be online on September 14th, while music producer Hans Zimmer (who's behind the soundtracks of Gladiator, The Dark Knight, and Inception, among many others) will also be available on the site sometime in the future.
