Forget First World Problems. Fifth World Problems are irritations of Lovecraftian proportions. Stuck between alternate dimensions? Plagued by neighboring hyperlizards? Is your quantum state beginning to crystallize? You've got Fifth World Problems.

This has been my new favorite subreddit for the last few weeks. It's fun to subscribe to, since it means random batshit insanity will be mixed in with the normal links on the front page.

Hmm. On quick browsing, I begin to suspect all the questions about how to face sudden domestic "Fringe event" disasters are their version of our "should I eat it or not" AskMe's. Fun!

I think I just failed my SAN check. On the other hand, I never knew Marmaduke and cosmic horror went together so well.

I think I've found a new favorite subreddit. It's like the Church of the Subgenius on a bad tequila drunk.

Marmaduke and cosmic horror

Whew! For a while there I was worried I wasn't going to have any nightmares from which I could not awake tonight.

Problem solved~

I'm not sure if this meets the high literary standards of r/firstworld-, secondworld-, thirdworld-, fourthworld-, futureworld-, and r/ancientworldproblems.

Marmaduke and cosmic horror

Also available in Clifford the Big Red Dog flavor.

Dear AskMe,

There are many large colonies of of insignificant entities populating a planet I desire to be eventually awakened on and then casually annihilate. Is it safe to DEVOUR THEM?

Ah, good. Hopefully there I can find some resources for setting up a schedule for carpooling to Lost Carcosa.

And there's actually already a Sixth World Problems, where things appear to have gone from bad to worse.

Just wanted to step back in here and say: don't peruse this for an extended period before turning in for the night.
