Please come back when you've done enough research to show convincingly that the authors of those pieces weren't making them up, drunk, stoned, hallucinating, sleep deprived, or simply bonkers.

The following is one of many YouTube videos purporting to show "glitches in the matrix".
Several of the samples are just of the coincidence type (a man carrying a shopping-bag just happens to be followed by an identically-clad man carrying a shopping-bag in the same manner, two cats exhibit identical behavior in turn, etc.).
There are a few samples supposedly showing "freezes" of the type described in the first reddit link (original post)...

* 'glitch-frozen' dog at timestamp 1:59 (direct link)
* 'glitch-frozen' dog at timestamp 4:56 (direct link)

Personally, I don't think that anything in the video represents compelling evidence of glitches in the matrix. For instance, two 'frozen' dogs probably says more about canine nervous systems than it does about the matrix. Still, it's an interesting watch for those who like to ponder day-to-day oddities.

Here, it's related and it's cool, and edumacational, so watch this video.

What's to debunk? Either we're in The Matrix or we're not, and unless Morpheus come a'callin you'll never know. Pass the blue pill, please, it's all good here.

Seems like some people don't get the point these metaphysical theories. It's really nothing more than a thought experiment that might have some have some explanations about reality. They can't be proven (and conversely), disproved. It's nothing more than a belief and that's it.
