“You need to believe in things that aren’t true. How else can they become” - Hogfather, Terry Pratchett
a true classic

sometimes i think thank god tumblr follower count is hidden, people over on twitter let the numbers go to their head so much
also tumblr numbers mean nothing considering thr amount of bot followers
even funnier when someone on tumblr expects you to treat them as royalty for having a lot of followers like they are not also a tumblr user
fandoms purists have never watched doctor who and it SHOWS
These people haven’t been hardened by a media property where half of the writers hate the other half’s ideas and they duke it out with the shows cannon, there’s a third half of the writers that ignore the rest and just do whatever they want anyway. And they’ve been doing this for 50+ years. The main characters home planet has been destroyed at least four times possibly more, there are entire spinoffs based on breaking cannon, the current show runner was basically killed in effigy on the show in the 7th doctors run (30+ years before he took the role lmao), the main characters backstory has been changed so much so often that one writer made an entire book to explain why it doesn’t matter. IN 1999. We’re simply on another level
‘wah wah this was out of character i don’t like the ship’ lmao go listen to zagreus. what is canon but a massive fucking joke?
Somewhat deluded Doctor Who fans - “Doctor Who has canon… it has rules!”
Doctor Who creators -
oh, Doctor Who absolutely has canon. it has a superabundance of canon! Doctor Who is thirteen quarreling canons in a trenchcoat wired together with string and duct tape, and honestly, I’d expect nothing less of it.
I know I’ve made a post about it before but I can’t find it but the most like, bonechilling thing you can ever experience is the Silence when you’re walking in the woods. Like it’s the woods there’s always birds and bugs and frogs and shit but sometimes it will just go completely dead silent. Sometimes it feels like even the breeze stops. Like the animals can sense a predator nearby that’s even bigger and scarier than you.
So in SE Michigan there’s a MTB Trail called the DTE Foundation Trail just north of Chelsea,MI. I have a couple segments in my pinned post so you can see what kind of trail it is.
For a mountain biker it has three major sections (more still under development including connectors to a larger network, but i digress.).
* Green Loop - easy flow
* Kame - big climbs, big downhills with jumps, super flow, technical climbs - intermediate
* Winn Loop - long flow with grinding climbs and long downhills, technical features. - intermediate
* Sugar Loop - fast flow and major speed but more technical- difficult
The usual flow is you start on the green loop and move onto the Big Kame, then the Winn, then the Sugar, then back up the loops to the trailhead.
How is it relevant to the Silence? Well the west side of the Winn Loop.
Things just happen there. I’ve been to DTE so many times and the uneasy feeling never goes away on the West side of the Winn. I’ll pass riders who have taken some bad falls and require a medivac. There’s a spot where the forest looks pretty open but it’s quiet.
Unless there’s a storm moving through the area, you don’t hear anything.
See in the distance there?
That used to be a trail and after the tree fell over no one opened it back up.
There’s always this heavy… musk.. in that area specifically. I know the smell of deer and it isn’t that. Something else lives in the area and it creeps me out.
Part of me thinks this is the range a mountain lion but those sightings are super rare and have been mostly a little bit more east.
The most perplexing thing is that this is really close to Sugarloaf Lake and there are some people living out there so there shouldn’t be a reason for this unease…
I’m not the only person that’s felt it but yeah there’s something really not right with the forest there.
the energy these have is like nothing I have ever seen
I know they probably mean ‘pull over first’, but they’re sure as hell not saying that.
nsw has ‘stop. revive. survive.’ but vic has ‘powernap now’. My dad, of course, decided to pretend to sleep every time we passed a sign in vic…
4got my fave
new ‘live laugh love’ motto just dropped
you are kidnapped by henchmen because your boyfriend/girlfriend is a super hero, but the villains are your parents who just now recognized you as your BF/GF has arrived to save you and now you have to explain the situation to everyone while the henchmen watch barley stifling their laughter
There’s this feeling I sometimes get watching humans do the cool things that humans have been doing for thousands of years. It makes my chest expand and my heart thud and I love it. I love this.
sea shantys will never not be so cool to hear i dont care
I'll treat nazi collaborators the same way as I treat Nazis, spicing hairs for the enemy is a ugly look tho
Y'all always think that having no nuance is the same as being hard-line but it actually just limits your ability to understand your enemy.
If we call TERFs “Nazis” and have no other analysis all we’re doing is inviting them to platform TERFs of color and Jewish TERFs to decry the “slander”.
If we say TERFs are collaborating with Nazis over their shared hated of trans people then they can’t do that. Platforming people that Nazis hate just demonstrates that there are people in the movement willing to put aside their own safety for the sake of their hate movement.
And then we can move toward making that collaboration more labored and difficult.
But yeah, I suppose just pointing at people and shouting “Nazi” probably does something too.
ppl managing to live where they grew up is really bizarre to me
Hi! Croatian here. As an inland country, I found a job processing uranium. We have a lot of it.
God I wish I was processing uranium in Croatia
I think about this post every day
Hey, another Croatian here! Croatia has a coastline and I can’t find a single mention of uranium in Croatia. I don’t know what kind of paralel universe this person is from.
this is entrapment
two equally delightful paths here:
1) a very simple and genuine “i like your shoelaces”, which tells me that you are either a lesbian or a very cool ally
2) “i like your shoelaces” followed by the pronounced grimace of one recalling their past sins, which tells me that you were a 2012 tumblr user. i now hold the power in this conversation and you are at my mercy.
if you know about 2012 tumblr how do you hold any power in any conversation
well, stucky fanfic url, the trick is to not let them know that you are also cringe
this is the most poignant burn ive seen all year
So I’m currently
enslavedemployed by a cable company, and I can offer a few pointers:
- Find a copy of the customer agreement online. Read it. Have the “big cats in boxes” YouTube video on standby so that you can renew your will to live periodically while reading it.
- Focus on the sections about cancellation
- Examine any terms regarding early termination fees, notice required, proration of the time between cancellation and the end of the billing period, and equipment return policies.
- Send a letter requesting cancellation to your carrier via certified mail. Include the date you wish for it to be cancelled. If you are not the account holder but have power of attorney, or the account holder has died and you are managing their estate, send copies of the relevant documentation with the letter.
- The day after, when it isn’t cancelled, call back. Ask for “retention” or “loyalty” and when asked why, state that you wish to cancel.
- They’ll ask you why you want to cancel. Say “I don’t want to discuss it, I just want to cancel my service.” (note: there are times when it pays to disclose your reasons; my company will waive all early termination fees and penalties if the account holder is being entering military deployment or a nursing home. Check their policies.)
- They’ll offer something nice. Bundles, discounts, free channels, etc. Say “as nice as that sounds, and as much as I appreciate the offer, I just need to cancel my service.”
- When they deflect again, ask how to return any leased equipment. They’ll launch into another spiel about that, thankful that you aren’t making them process the cancellation. Write down the process – they’ll either tell you to bring the equipment to a local office, or they’ll state that they are sending recovery kits. If it’s the latter, ask for the address that the recovery kits return to and write it down (you want to use the recovery kit if you get one, since it’s prepaid, but if they aren’t sent you’ll want to be able to return the equipment yourself.)
- After all of this has transpired, state “As I stated in the letter sent via certified mail on [date], I am ending our contractual relationship and terminating this subscription. Has my cancellation order been processed?”
- If the cancellation order has not been processed, tell them to process it. Listen to their spiel. Ask for the date that it will be terminated.
- Hang up, wait thirty minutes. Call back, ask if your account is pending cancellation or not. If not, ask to be transferred to retention and ask for a supervisor. Demand that your cancellation be processed and advise them that a complaint will be filed with the FCC if it is not.
- If more than an hour has been spent on the phone, file a complaint at FCC.gov. Forcing a customer to continue a service outside of the terms stipulated by the contract is illegal and the FCC hates it.
This went from really funny to “holy fuck what kind of nightmare dystopia do we live in that we need to be educated on how to get a company to actually cancel an account with a company that bills you monthly” really fast.
did you know that hyenas loaf like cats do? look it up there's pictures
This is the best fact I’ve ever heard thank you so much anon

Thread was missing my fave part.
i’m actually wheezing at all of this
Me, refusing to leave tumblr: sir, this is my emotional support hellsite
beepboop. censorbot approved
“Me, refusing to leave: sir, this is my emotional hell” is a funnier text post than my original one, good job censorbot.
Victor refusing to make the Monster a wife because he was worried they’d breed is such a cop out. Like, you’re cobbling together body parts from charnel houses. You can just not give her any ovaries. You can just spay her like a cat. Why are you this dumb Victor. You’re a doctor.
the implication that victor spend weeks giving the monster a working dick is also extremely weird
Something to remember is that Victor didn’t just give the monster a working dick! He wanted his creation to be made of the best parts of men-it’s why the monster is made up of so many different pieces rather than one fresh corpse, why he’s so large, and why Victor is disappointed that he isn’t beautiful.
So, what does this mean? It means that Victor looked at the dicks of various corpses, testing not only to make sure they work, but also to find what he considered to be the best corpse dick. Does this mean the monster was extremely hung? Or did Victor simply pick the dick that seemed most attractive to him? Did he memorize the appearance of the dicks, or did he line them up to compare?
We’ll never know, because the original story never touches on the subject, and it’s one of the few flaws in Mary Shelley’s work.
I know I started this conversation but I’m so sorry I did
Considering we know who Mary Shelley was spending time around I guarantee this was a CONVERSATION that she actively and adamantly refused to actually include in the text
Well, there is ONE adaptation which includes this very discussion.
I feel it’s my duty to make sure everyone sees this because the still images don’t do the comedic timing of that pause justice.
Gene Wilder was a comedic master.
A rare example of a movie with absolutely NO poor performances, and every single member of the cast firing on all cylinders.
Thats just how Mel rolls. All his movies are great.
Also Victor *wasn’t* a doctor. He dropped out because nobody was taking his ideas to create life seriously
A good Christian man walked into Walmart and was offered a mask by the store greeter. The man politely declined saying God would protect him from Covid. Later the man went to his doctor for a routine check up. The doctor told him everything is fine and they also have all three different types of the Covid vaccine if he would like one. Again the man politely declined saying God would protect him from Covid. A few weeks later the man fell very ill. He went back to his doctor and to his disbelief was diagnosed with Covid and admitted to the hospital. After days of holding on he finally fell victim to his illness. When the man reached the gates of heaven God was there waiting for him. The man asked God why he didn’t protect him from Covid? God looked at him and said, I had people offer you free masks and three different vaccines to choose from you dummy. Also you’re going to have to quarantine in hell for a few weeks.
Let’s do a Wild Hunt larp where we kidnap Jeff Bezos and release him in the forest and then give all the larpers (who are amazon employees) weird masks and motorbikes painted to look like fucked up horses and wolves.
Somewhat disturbed at how fast this post started picking up notes.
don’t set out food if you don’t want us to eat
i love that i can’t write the word fuck on facebook without risking getting zucced and here I’m greeted everyday by posts like this
i agree that jameela makes great points at times, but she’s also the same woman who thinks the likes of laverne cox are women just because they identify that way. you can’t be a woman who calls out the deep-seated misogyny of society while also saying that any male who “feels” like a woman is one, and his opinions on womanhood automatically become relevant.
I hope you and all TERFs shit your pants in public too.
buddy her thinking trans women are women is a bonus not a flaw
i was expecting something actually bad and harmful when they started talking like “but she thinks vaccines cause autism” not “she knows trans women are women”
