I rarely have a visceral reaction to a TikTok but this one… this one got me
List of wild things in this video:
- The guy whose computer screen you can see at the start is looking up “what to do if a dog has rabies”
- The unbroken wall of hydroflasks in front of the teacher’s podium
- Good Mythical Morning poster
- Inexplicable “NO TALKING DURING RAZOR LOVE” sign
- The guy next to the videographer just has the letters “WBOEOADRS” in giant font on his computer screen
- The teacher knowing to pause for booing after he mentione Ashe County Middle School
- The kid that yells “I hate them!” enthusiastically
- A sign that says “NO FREAKING” with a picture of two stick figures having sex
- Hand-painted “educasion is overated” poster
- The fact that the class knows to say “standing by” when he tells them to stand by
- The woman literally waiting outside the door to hand over the dog
- The tenderness with which he handles the dog before he announces its imminent demise
- “DO YOUR BUCKING VOCAB”
Do you guys remember when we thought 2016 was going to be one of the weirdest years of our lives? It’s fucking wild to me how it turned out to be just the opening scroll text of our Star Wars of weirdness.
You know when a TV show has been going on for a while and each season the stakes get higher and/or more implausible and we all deride them for being unrealistic?
Are you saying by September it’ll be my turn to battle God?
Fuck it, I’m ready, let’s go.
Fucking hell, which season of Supernatural is this and how can I get this shit cancelled??
Well, this whole post really aged interestingly.
Back in the 1960s, a Harvard graduate student made a landmark discovery about the nature of human anger.
At age 34, Jean Briggs traveled above the Arctic Circle and lived out on the tundra for 17 months. There were no roads, no heating systems, no grocery stores. Winter temperatures could easily dip below minus 40 degrees Fahrenheit.
Briggs persuaded an Inuit family to “adopt” her and “try to keep her alive,” as the anthropologist wrote in 1970.
At the time, many Inuit families lived similar to the way their ancestors had for thousands of years. They built igloos in the winter and tents in the summer. “And we ate only what the animals provided, such as fish, seal and caribou,” says Myna Ishulutak, a film producer and language teacher who lived a similar lifestyle as a young girl.
Briggs quickly realized something remarkable was going on in these families: The adults had an extraordinary ability to control their anger.
“They never acted in anger toward me, although they were angry with me an awful lot,” Briggs told the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. in an interview.
Across the board, all the moms mention one golden rule: Don’t shout or yell at small children.
Traditional Inuit parenting is incredibly nurturing and tender. If you took all the parenting styles around the world and ranked them by their gentleness, the Inuit approach would likely rank near the top. (They even have a special kiss for babies, where you put your nose against the cheek and sniff the skin.)
The culture views scolding — or even speaking to children in an angry voice — as inappropriate, says Lisa Ipeelie, a radio producer and mom who grew up with 12 siblings. “When they’re little, it doesn’t help to raise your voice,” she says. “It will just make your own heart rate go up.”
Even if the child hits you or bites you, there’s no raising your voice?
“No,” Ipeelie says with a giggle that seems to emphasize how silly my question is. “With little kids, you often think they’re pushing your buttons, but that’s not what’s going on. They’re upset about something, and you have to figure out what it is.”
Traditionally, the Inuit saw yelling at a small child as demeaning. It’s as if the adult is having a tantrum; it’s basically stooping to the level of the child, Briggs documented.
Elders I spoke with say intense colonization over the past century is damaging these traditions. And, so, the community is working hard to keep the parenting approach intact.
good morning, nerds
“One day,“ you said to me, “I saw the sunset forty-four times!”
And a little later you added:
“You know– one loves the sunset, when one is so sad…”
“Were you so sad, then?” I asked, “on the day of the forty-four sunsets?”
But the little prince made no reply.”
The Little Prince, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
This project took me a couple days and a LOT of shuffling through my own stack of little prince books/DVDs, along with a lot of googling ( I have a history full of French, English, and Japanese google searches :’’-0) to find as many little princes as I could! there’s probably still a lot of them out there I missed though ha.
The whole point of it came from how I noticed that in the book, the aviator called the little prince ‘’his little prince’’, and it made me think about all the different ways people interpret and draw their own little prince — like we each have our own, our little prince!
david tennants so funny to me cuz hes like. a very private and quiet person. and all characters they call him to do are like mr slutty mcthot
David Tennant can do three things, be a detective, a serial killer, or wear very tight pants
i always think the venn diagram is Slut, Sad Dad, and Serial Killer.

yes happy thanksgiving blah blah blah today would be a great day to donate to our indigenous and first nations communities, buy from indigenous and first nations businesses, and check out the #next150 challenge
OP’s links are for First Nations communities in Canada. If you can donate please do so, the treatment of the Natives at the hands of the Canadian Government is disgusting and I would argue is a genocide. If want to support First Nations in the United States of American I’ve donated to https://www.firstnations.org/ They have a long history of helping Natives rebuild and grow their communities.
If you have the funds, consider make a donation to either organizations.
this is a great addition thank you @celestial-millennial
me, age 10, raised catholic, accompanying my friend to her non-denominational church’s weekly wednesday night youth event in a “church” with a carpeted auditorium with a stage and a pastor playing the guitar and singing christian rock songs about how jesus loves you no matter what
my favorite comments from the tags:
I used to go to nondenominational Bible school for a week each summer and let me tell you:
Protestant videos ain’t shit
Nearly depleted funds may cause a group of volunteers providing aid to Navajo and Hopi families during the pandemic to halt care package distribution within “a matter of weeks," the organization announced on Monday.
