Tumblr Thread: When In Doubt Ask The World's Craftspeople

We love an educational post from Tumblr every now and again. In this case we have a wonderful Tumblr thread that pays homage to the world's craftspeople. You know, the people that gained their expertise through firsthand experience, and not necessarily what you can learn within the rigid confines of a textbook. This Tumblr thread might inspire you to reach out to those folks in your life that gained their wisdom through actual life experiences, and not what they picked up in the world of academia. For some more fun from Tumblr check out this thread about the ageless matriarch that is Mamaw. She's a gem that must be protected at all costs.

With Father's Day right around the corner Jimmy Fallon decided to start up a Twitter thread that has people sharing the very best and absolute worst advice that they ever received from their dads.

You know, like they could've been telling their own kinds of dad jokes that just ended up completely missing their mark. Speaking of dad jokes, check out these punny dad jokes that outpunned themselves

Restaurant Owner Has Special Wing Sauce Just For The Complainers

There's always gonna be someone who says a thing isn't spicy enough. So why not give them an opportunity to fly too close to the sun and get burned? Some customers will stand by their bad decisions, like this customer who demanded an extra hot tea and actually accepted it. But sometimes customers are so rude with their demands that they get the royal treatment like this rude gentleman who demanded no ice and got less than that.

You can tell that it's about to get very interesting and treacherous when the hydraulic press makes that weird noise, and the obsidian starts to "give." I mean, let's be real: obsidian put up one hell of a fight.

Opossums That We Weirdly Identify With

Why is it that so many people find opossums so relatable? Is it the fact that they're a sometimes adorable reminder of an ugly world? Maybe it's that in a sense we all feel like we're trashborne. Maybe it's the anachronistic reality of being an ancient, fuzzy, rat-tailed non-racoon with a mouth full of horrible teeth and the reputation of a coward? Who knows, but there's just something about them that says "us."

Tumblr Thread: The Chaotic Evil Architect

Some buildings are horrible to look at and other building decisions are just weird, bad and dumb. And then there's the kind of architecture that can actually destroy things and hurt people. Tumblr gets into the interesting work of Rafael Vinoly. For another story on artists of chaos, here's the story of the world's most hated elitist artist Anish Kapoor and his bean.

Vegan Wants Wedding Guest's Vegan Meal, Gets Rejected, Pitches Fit

As far as stories about vegans stirring up some unnecessary drama goes, this one right here very well might take the cake. What we have is one wedding guest who is pretty much just minding their own business, only to later on be bothered by another belligerent vegan who naively assumes that they'll just be able to have another person's vegan meal. Well, that's not really how the world works. What is it with weddings bringing out the very worst in people

Thanks to recent monsoon rains in Mumbai, the conditions were perfect for a sinkhole to open up riiiiight under some unfortunate person's car. True to its name, that sinkhole did what it does best. It's a little unnerving to imagine that at any time the ground could just open up and swallow whatever it wants, but what choice do we have? Should we not touch the ground? It's the ground.

Clearly, this gopher was just trying to get his work done for the day. Unfortunately (or fortunately for us), the pit bull had other plans in mind. I just love how calmly he continues to pester that gopher. The fact that things don't seem to escalate into any kind of dangerous situation is nice too. Just a couple pals muddling through a simple miscommunication problem.

While it'd be wildly easy to fake this whole situation, it's kind of a fun idea to entertain. Honestly, this video reminds us of that recent post about the dude who very well might've wandered into an artificial, government fabricated town. Like, if you ever find yourself in that situation, do you just proceed to have as much fun as possible with it, or what? I feel like that's the move. Shout out to TikToker @kilianandmaruta for this video though.

Tumblr Thread: Don't Mess With Fully Orbed Owls

You can learn something new every day from the wonderful, ever wandering minds of the Tumblr world. In this case, we have a quick yet educational breakdown on why you definitely don't want to mess around with owls. If it seems like an owl has assumed an aggressive demeanor, and is pretty much squaring up against you...that's because it probably is. Honestly, picturing this particular owl swimming around a lake with those big eyes is already kind of terrifying. For some more gold from Tumblr check out this Tumblr post about how random knowledge can end up being super clutch

Rude Customer Won't Move Car, Karmic Justice Ensues

This isn't the first time that we've seen some beef break out in a parking lot over someone's inability to be a reasonable human being, and simply move their car out of the way. We're sure that it won't be the last time we see it either. In this case though, the customer clearly messed with the wrong dude. Just picturing the look of panicked wonder that must've flashed across this dude's face when he saw the ramifications of what he'd done. Oh boy. For another petty revenge-inspired parking lot drama check out this post about a parking lot bully who sniped a driver's parking space, and then the petty revenge that ensued

Perspective-Twisting Images of Doubletakery

Is that a toxic sludge spill or just a swan with its head in a pipe? Is that a yacht or a clothes iron? Is that a pyramid or an umbrella? Double take moments like these are a constant source of eye confusion and they'll never let up. There'll always be someone out there with their arm in just the right place to make it look like a butt. That's just the nature of skewed perspective.

Personality Traits That People Can't Stand

Is "likeability" a totally inherent trait or is it a cluster of behaviors? Probably a little of both. Basically anyone who acts selfishly, lies a lot or stirs up unnecessary drama is going to be a hard person to be around. At the same time, some behaviors feel rude but really aren't. For a shortcut into people's values, one good test is always the shopping cart theory of morality.

History Memes That Are At Least Historically Funny

History memes aren't for everyone. Maybe all the plebeians with their Slim Jims and reality television will have their minds sated by relatable content, but not the brooding, dour historian. No, the historians among us will only draw pleasure from history memes for the historically inclined. Yes, the only thing that can light up the brain of an enlightened one is history memes for the splendiferously learned. That and maybe some fancier, beefier Slimothy Jameses.

Old Lady Complains About Young Neighbors, Young Neighbor Claps Back

Anyone who has ever had some elderly neighbors knows that it can end up being an environment that's unfortunately ripe for dealing with all kinds of petty complaints. That goes without saying that not every old person is going to make a whole fuss out of having young neighbors. Just some of them. And oh boy, does this old lady sound like she was having a particularly moody day. Well, all that moodiness resulted in her getting called out pretty harshly. Maybe too harsh, or perhaps justified? You be the judge.
