The internet has changed a lot in the past few decades, but taking a screenshot of something absurd or hilarious has never been more popular.

Lots of memes get their start from the simple act of pressing a few keys or holding down some buttons and taking a snapshot of a text exchange, social media post, or website. It’s the perfect way to capture the gist of a conversation in an instant, and it’s easy to do. Luckily for us, there’s a whole subreddit devoted to sharing the funniest screenshots people have gathered from the web. Here are a few of our favorites.

1. “Oh hey, famous scientist guy. Didn’t see you there.”
