Just found out that Tim Jacobus has high res versions of his nearly 100 goosebumps covers on his website! There’s no many cool details in them I’ve never noticed before.
I love that “if you’re a hostile shithead to strangers for no reason, people will treat you unkindly” is like a totally novel concept to tumblr users. Like did you all get socialized entirely on edgy social media dunks culture and simply don’t understand that people don’t enjoy being randomly insulted.
remember when this site’s code was so terrible that if someone sent you an anonymous message you could easily pull their IP address and location from it. or when people would code fake anon toggles on the ask page of their blog so when people would send them anon hate they’d get ousted. or the fact that we could edit people’s reblogs and literally change the entire text of anyone’s posts. that was so fun this site is weenie hut jr. now
“Thirty Years” by Tomatobird (2018)
This is a work of fiction and thus I have taken some artistic liberties in characterization and the presentation of the timeline of Jesus’ life while doing my best to be respectful to the texts while also framing it in a personal, creative way. That being said, historical notes and other thoughts below the readmore:
Finally somebody else saw it too
not sure why people find this weird, both are made for the human sitting in them to be able to do so relatively comfortably for long hours. It just happens to be that ergonomics don’t really change *that* much over the course of growing up.
Sorry its actually because gamers are little babies :/
Wrong that’s bc we’re all born as gamers but most are changed by society 😔😔😔
ive never watched buzzfeed unsolved but did the guys solve anything on the show?
no no that’s a bop, i love it
“Woman!” cried I, somewhat tearsome,
“Who are you to stand so fearsome
With your wavy locks of auburn hair and eyes of emerald green?”
Quoth the woman, “I’m Jolene”
*missing the charging port on my phone* don’t think about it don’t think about it don’t think about it
my two favourite things about this
- everyone knows what this is
- the scene was an adaptation of a scene from the original novel where instead of a charging port on a phone, it’s a winding key in a pocketwatch. I like to imagine people having this exact same kind of thought when they missed the watch keyhole 100 years ago
I want a relationship like this
The himbo energy here is impeccable
[Transcription: A well-dressed fancy lady and man stand facing each other in an old-fashioned movie*
Woman: “And now you want me to teach you jiu jitsu.”
Man: “If you don’t mind, Miss Plum.”
Plum, loud and excitedly: “IT’LL BE A PLEASURE.”
*She rips his tuxedo jacket off his shoulders, grips him aggressively, and yeets him over her shoulder in a jiu jitsu martial arts fashion*
Man: *Clasping her arms a few seconds later while she looks coyly at him* “Now, let me see. Um. Let me do it to you.”
*He appears very concentrated, the camera shifts to her soft smile and romantic music begins to play, accentuating a mood that he is NOT picking up on*
“Now, let me see first of all I, um,- I pull this down.” *He pulls her cardigan off her shoulders, her collarbone now exposed and she likes it that way, she looks very obviously at his lips, like this lady has absolutely zero chill*
“Now I do this!” *He jilts her shoulders into them so their faces are centimeters away, she looks like she would like to eat his face and he is still very concentrated but in a giddy boy way*
Him: “Then I hold you close!”
Him, confuzzled: “I beg your pardon?”
Plum: “Closer!! Close as you can!” *She is mentally having sex already*
Him: “Oh, yes.” *He searches her eyes for direction*
Him: “Now what do I do?”
*Miss Plum is absolutely beaming*
Plum: “Don’t you know?”
*She wants him to do things to her and he stands there mouth agape. You can see his one braincell struggling visibly in his hollow brain as realization of the century is dangling in front of him. He’s about to realize and then*
Him: “Of course! Now I apply the leverage!” *And he yeets her on to the floor*
*The music swells and fades, telling the audience that this man’s one braincell has failed him. Himbo of the century.*
Reblogging for the trasncript.
Here’s a thing on reality shifting, which is 111% real! Watch the YouTuber ‘Shimmey Shay’ pinned video. There was CIA docs about it and there’s a link to it in the pinned video.
IVE READ THE CIA DOCS IVE READ EVERYTHING FROM PROJECT STARGATE, THE CIA DECLASSIFIED THE PROGRAM IN 1995 AFTER THEY CONCLUDED THE RESEARCH WASNT USEFUL
ALSO THEY NEVER MENTIONED REALITY SHIFTING, THE CLOSEST THING THEY TESTED WAS SCRYING, WHICH THEY CALL REMOTE VIEWING. REALITY SHIFTING IS JUST LUCID DREAMING.
IF YOU DONT BELIEVE ME, HERES THE DOCUMENT CODE EVERYONE CITES FROM THE BEGINNING OF PROJECT STARGATE:
Okay but there are several reasons that are kinda interesting
1) fast food restaurants cannot advertise to children anymore, so that means no more bright colors and child friendly mascots
2) McDonalds and the like have been loosing ground to “fresh fast food” chains like Chipotle for the better part of two decades, and this style is meant to emulate that more clean, “mature” style.
3) Resale on property. See, fast food isn’t doing as well as it did in the 90s-early 2000s, and where it used to be fairly rare to have a fast food place close, now a days you might have a location close, and good luck selling the old, branded building to a completely different business. You know those closed Pizza Huts that just sorta sit there forever, very clearly having been a Pizza Hut? Well as it turns out, most businesses don’t want to buy a building that is recognizably from a different brand. You’d basically have to tear down the building and start over, a costly decision when there are plenty of plain looking spaces that you can buy/rent and put a lot less cost into renovations. So for a fast food chain now, it’s far better to have a plain “this could be any sort of counter service place, just change the signs!” In case you have to close that location and sell the building.
Basically fast food places look like this now because fast food is an industry that is well past it’s peak profits, and businesses must plan for their eventual closure and for their building to simply be absorbed into the next trend or monopoly.
This makes sense but also there’s an urgent care in my area that has the pizza hut roof
In the same vein of cave paintings having children’s handprints higher than their height suggesting them being lifted up or sitting on the shoulders of adults, there’s footprints in Australia dating to the Ice Age showing a group of adults and children walking to a body a water, and one child breaking away from the group to seemingly skip in a wavy path until rejoining the group
This is like 20 thousand years ago! And the joy and happiness of going to water made this child playfully skip along! It’s universal! Dancing their way back to their family!
In a language we will never hear, a culture we’ll never know, with thoughts and ideas we can only imagine! There are millennia of untold moments of happiness, of human connection and warmth that are gone forever. But they still happened! Did that family even notice the tracks they left? How could they have known that that one day their impossibly distant descendants would be able to see the imprints they made?
Another set of tracks in the same area shows three men hunting a giant kangaroo, running at incredible speeds, but one of them had only one foot! They jumped along on one foot, every so often an imprint from a stick appearing. How did they lose their limb? An accident? A fight? A predator? Was it completely gone or maimed? Was it from birth? Either way this person was cared for by their family and was able to heal and participate fully in life! They most likely felt grief when their family member lost the use of their limb! Who cared for them? Who gave them the stick to help them walk? What kind of joy did their family feel when they made a recovery? Did someone shape and carve the stick? They certainly worked all of their other wooden tools, something as essential that would have been too.
This was during the ice age when Australia became a brutally cold, dry desert. Their entire food system had to change. By all indications it should have been a stark and difficult life of little resources. But no! They worked together! They looked after their wounded and sick! The speed that these hunters were running at was incredible and means they were well fed and healthy! A millennia of helping one another and caring for one another and all we can get are tiny glimpses of these moments did they catch the kangaroo did they laugh and congratulate each other when they did how happy were they to bring it back to their families I just
There were people who survived trephination long enough for bone to regrow over the hole. Can you even imagine the care that must have required, in prehistoric times with no sanitation or tech or medicine? We have proof, in the form of human remains, that disabled people who couldn’t have walked or fed themselves survived for years in the Stone Age. We have cave paintings that were clearly made by an adult and a child together, one teaching the other.
The past was brutal, but that doesn’t mean everyone who lived in it was.

Ralph Breaks the Internet is already a horrible movie but I just can’t begin to imagine how bad it will age
Imagine 30 years from now having to explain to people that Disney was trying to do something DARING by exploring Internet World so they made an “emotional” scene where the main character reads mean comments about him by people who dont even know he’s a sentient creature and just consider him a dumb video game meme
This is so fucking innacurate bc if ralph were real people on twitter wouldnt be hateposting about him theyd be drawing his cock
Good lord whatever you do don’t look in the notes of this post 😭
Twitter (2020) VS the Hays code (1930)
Maybe the Hayes code wasn’t that bad
Imagine knowing this little about history. The Hays code we’re so apparently keen to bring back included the following:
- “Miscegenation” (interracial relationships) were not allowed.
- Sex hygiene and venereal diseases were not appropriate subjects.
- Homosexuality was not to be depicted.
- Ridicule of the clergy was not allowed.
- Religion could never be depicted in a mocking manner.
- Words like “God,” “Lord,” “Jesus,” “Christ,” “hell,” and “damn” could not be used unless it was in connection with religious ceremonies.
But yeah let’s fucking bring back the Hays code because sex is evil. You fucking lemmings. The point is that the Hays code was a horrible, immoral piece of bullshit that was only there to enforce white supremacy and Christianity on screen, and the reason people compare you to them is because of this absolutely brain-numbing tomfoolery.
Good lord, we’ve really reached “maybe the Hayes code was good” levels of purity culture. Yikes.
Because of the Hayes Code, women were no longer portrayed as independent beings. Instead they were reduced to mere appendages to men.
Some references: Wikipedia, The Hays Code Made Hollywood Hell On Earth For Women, Uncensored: Gender Roles and the Dismantling of the Picture Production Code, A Series of Splices, The Origins of Classic Hollywood’s Male Gaze
It’s driving me nuts because I can’t find the quote, but one of the rationales for the Code I read in a film history book was (paraphrased) “If it’s not fit for a child to watch, then it’s not fit for anyone.” And gosh, doesn’t THAT sound familiar…
Homosexuality actually could be depicted under the Hayes Code! By irredeemable villains!! Or people who died because of it!!!
If you’ve ever wondered why media has so much sh*tty stereotypes about homosexuality and villainy, or the bury your gays trope exists, well look no further than the Hayes Code and its wide reaching impact on generations of media makers! Our current rating system? Was actually an improvement on the Hayes Code.
Feel free to miss me with that bullsh*t, thanks.
Wasn’t the code also enforcing that you had to show a bad person receiving punishment for their evil, evil deeds? In “The Bad Seed” for example a little girl murders one of her classmates for petty reasons and gets away with it, despite her mother trying to kill her after discovering the truth (with sleeping pills I believe). In the movie version a bolt of divine retribution struck the kid down.
I can see why that kind of morality would appeal to tumblr
youtube with these non skippable double ads and instagram showing a sponsored ad every 2-4 posts you scroll through like….this is agonizing
and the fact that you can’t read conversations under a popular tweet until you scroll past 6 same freaking ads that you see under every other popular tweet
bc i’m nosy and the replies are sometimes funnier than the actual tweet
