(If you're interested you can check out Scott's Cheap Flights here, but honestly zero pressure!)

As a token of my appreciation for Reddit's incredible ongoing support (not only mentions, but all five of SCF's team members are Redditors), I would be honored to donate my time today and help you find specific cheap flights, or answer any general flights/travel questions.

(Sorry for having to abort the post earlier this week right after it went up, but wanted to make good on my promise so am here for y'all today!)

And don't worry, I will do my best to answer every single question. No Woody Harrelson here!

Proof I'm Scott: http://imgur.com/a/96Hhm

Proof I'm a professional cheap flight finder: Featured on the LA Times and Conde Nast Traveler

And some of the best deals we've sent out in the past month:

  • NYC/LA/Boston/Atlanta/Miami/Denver to Paris for $340-$403 roundtrip (normally $800+)

UPDATE: Wow RIP inbox. You guys (and gals!) are the best.

In response to those who were asking about Europe/Asia and elsewhere, Scott’s Cheap Flights includes flights departing not just USA & Canada, but also Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and (coming soon) Asia and Latin America :-)

UPDATE 2: Scott’s Cheap Flights' website is experiencing an intermittent Reddit Hug of Death :-) apologies if it goes slow but should be fully functional now!

UPDATE 3: I promised 7 hours and it's been 7 hours, but goddamit you guys are amazing so let's keep this party going. As Bill O'Reilly loves to say Fuck it let's do it live!!

UPDATE 4: Alright y'all this has been wonderful. 13 hours in and if I don't pull myself away from the computer my fiancee will leave me and take the puppy. Much love, you fabulous Redditors :-)

Ask me anything! http://www.topiama.com/r/5573/i-am-yoshiki-songwriter-music-producer-drummer Hi Reddit, I’m Mike Weinholtz, the democratic candidate for Governor of Utah! I’m running to get back to the real Utah values of taking care of one another and building a better future for our families. It’s time to put an end to pay-to-play special-interest politics and a state leadership that’s too focused on partisan theatrics to listen to the voices of its own people, which is why I’ve rejected all corporate money to my campaign. I’m passionately committed to improving our schools, cleaning up our air and water, making sure all Utah families have adequate healthcare and being a better steward of our public lands.

For those who aren’t familiar with me, here are some issues that I’m passionate about:

Legalizing medical cannabis and prescription drug reform

Affordable healthcare for all

Quality education

Protecting our public lands

I’m happy to answer questions from Utahns and non-Utahns alike from 6-7 PM MST.

MusicI am composer and technologist BT. My new album is _ AMA http://www.topiama.com/r/5542/i-am-composer-and-technologist-bt-my-new-album-is Hi, we are candidates of the Icelandic Pirate party and we have an election coming up on the 29th of October. These are exciting times in Icelandic politics because we are dealing with a post recession economy and the aftermath of the Panama papers leak where the Prime minister had to resign due to his connection with offshore accounts.

The Icelandic Pirate party got 5% in the last congressional election and are currently polling as the largest party at just over 20%. The amazing thing about that is not only that the Pirate party is the largest political party (by a slim margin) but also that the Independence party which has historically been the largest party by far is only polling at around 20%. The political landscape in Iceland has rarely been as exciting and the possibility for change is real.

We have MPs Birgitta Jónsdóttir and Ásta Guðrún Helgadóttir and candidate Smári McCarthy here to answer your questions.

UPDATE: Thanks for all the questions so far! We're signing out for the evening, but we'll monitor the thread tomorrow at least and respond to any new questions. There are a few questions that haven't been responded to yet ─ don't worry, we'll get to them! Thanks again, and more fun soon! - Smári, Ásta and Birgitta.

Request[AMA Request] Matt Furie, creator of Pepe the Frog http://www.topiama.com/r/5493/ama-request-matt-furie-creator-of-pepe-the-frog Hey guys. We're assuming most of you didn't watch us on X Factor, but we'll make a long story short.

We were both going to college and making music in Florida when we saw an ad for a Simon Cowell singing competition. We never thought about making it on the show, or the repercussions, but we thought if we sent in a video that some producer would see it and hook us up with someone to work with in LA. (The naive logic of kids who knew NOTHING about the business.) Months later we get a phone call to audition in person, and eventually we find ourselves in LA. Simon Cowell becomes our mentor and we stumble our way through being on live television (FYI: it's not as fun as it sounds) and end up winning the whole thing. Us = "WTF?!"

Prior to being on the show, we had never written music together, so we also stumbled our way through putting an album out. We were signed to Columbia Records and Syco Records, had an army of people telling us what to do, had huge photo shoots, music videos, we played the Today Show, Radio City, went on two tours with Colbie Caillat, Andy Grammer & Rachel Platten.... and then no one talked to us for 3+ months. We found out we were dropped through a text message to someone we had just met who had a friend at one of the labels.

So we got dropped by our labels, agency, lost our publishing deal, and our manager all at once. After having some significant, not mind blowing but significant, success. We spent some time thinking and now we have new management that rule, but we're doing everything else independently now. We just released an EP to get music out while we work on a full length.

You can buy it here: https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/as-seen-on-tv/id1138118582

Or listen for free on Spotify cause we're good with people streaming our music.

Ask us whatever you want! Proof: https://twitter.com/AlexandSierra/status/784091326006427648

EDIT @ 11:55am PST: We're starting rehearsal now, but we'll come back to this and answer more questions during our breaks!
