I want to be a white dad in a horror movie
Currently moving my brunette wife and our dejected children into an abandoned ghost factory for a fresh start
Honey, don’t worry about our daughter’s new habit of standing in front of the security camera in her playroom and murmuring about bones every night. That’s probably just something women do
Why shouldn’t our son play in the pitch black sub-basement that was walled shut with bricks until I started renovations? He’s a growing boy
Finally caving to my wife’s irrational fear and typing “ghosts?” into the Google search bar
Imagine being lost on the Enterprise all alone and it’s just miles and miles of corridors like this
Oh, let me tell you a story…
I was a production assistant on “Deep Space Nine”.
One day I was in a hurry, and decided to shave a half minute off my journey but zipping through a soundstage and out the other side. It was Stage Four, and held Ops, some personal quarters, Sisko’s quarters, the Cargo Bay.. and hallways.
It was lit, because we were moving there later in the afternoon. I began jogging through the corridor and stopped right in the middle, where I could see neither end of the set piece. Suddenly, I WAS THERE. I was on the station. It was a complete alternate reality feeling, almost deja-vu, a deep familiarity. I paused, and a chill ran down my spine.
But I was in a hurry, and my feet took me quickly to the end of the set, and I looked back… yep, just a lit set, all alone on the soundstage, nothing I hadn’t seen a thousand times.
And yet. I had been there. On the station. For a split second, I was no longer on Stage Four, on the Paramount lot, in the middle of Los Angeles. I was in Bajoran space, on a station in the stars. It was only a moment… but the feeling and the memory has never, ever left me.
Sometimes I wonder if anyone else experienced the same thing.
i think tumblr should have an @everyone feature. this would solve nothing and make everything worse
There was actually a bug on this site many many years ago that allowed you to send a reply to every post on your dash and everyone was threatening to unfollow people who partook in the glitch it was great
are any of us truly shocked tho
After a large dog “trained” with methods like his bit me in the face without warning, I’m just glad it wasn’t a person that got killed, tbh.
I’m currently lamenting the fact that people are inevitably going to interpret this as “not even a famous dog trainer can control pit bulls!!!!” and not “Cesar Milan is a hack who doesn’t know what he’s doing”.
Cesar Milan’s methods are infamous for backfiring - they rely on the completely bullshit idea of “alpha wolves” and dogs owners needing to make the dog associate them with discipline and strength instead of comfort and safety. It’s essentially about teaching the dog that its owner is an authority figure, not a family member. Pit bulls have genetic tendencies that make them susceptible to developing anxiety problems and, in the worst case scenario, canine PTSD. Discipline focused training can make that worse, which leads to aggressive behavior. I’m not a professional dog trainer or anything, I’m just autistic and obsessed with learning about animal behavior, and even I know “The Dog Whisperer” is and always has been a dangerous hack.
Remember everyone. The lesson to take away from this is “Cesar Milan is a hack fraud”, not “Pitbulls are inherently dangerous and must be exterminated”
In Super Mario 64, if Mario slides down into the big hole in the rolling rocks chamber in Hazy Maze Cave in a precise location, he will be caught on a piece of collision that will cause him to stumble infinitely in place. Since the pause menu cannot be used to exit the course due to the “exit course” option appearing only when Mario is standing still and the glitch causing perpetual movement, the only escape is to wait for the falling rocks to eventually kill Mario.
