There's a button on this Reddit page. If any of the 492,558 participants (and rising) presses it, the timer gets reset to 60 seconds and the game starts over. You can only press the button once. I've seen the timer go as low as 55 seconds before someone presses it, which is impressive.
Question: ...But what exactly is the button?
Answer: It is simply an experiment to see how long it takes before someone pushes the button. The timer resets itself to 60.00 seconds when someone, including you, pushes the button. We have not seen it go down to 0000 yet. So don't do it! Fight the urges! Don't be a weakling like me! Reddit won't explode, I swear.
This is the only strategy I can come up with, guys. We must all work together and form a mighty faggot! Before you non-pushers judge me for pushing the button, I had no idea what the button did or what it is altogether, and I'm guessing those who are pushing the button right now don't know what it is and does either.

Most tech-media takes on the iPhone’s 10th anniversary are bland and self-congratulatory, but I like Tom Warren’s at The Verge. He laments how Apple’s pocket computer killed his inner nerd. As a youngster, he’d be constantly tearing down and building computers, even in the sweltering heat of summer. But now… …All of that tinkering and […]
