Tumblr Thread: Humans are Too Strong for Their Own Good

It's kinda scary, kinda thrilling and makes you kind of proud to think that in some cases, your body can be literally too strong to keep itself together. Tumblr spends a lot of time on the weird sci-fi-ness  of human physiology, which results in interesting threads like these Tumblr users exploring humans as space orcs or this Tumblr thread about aliens being defeated by earth's wildlife.

Tumblr Thread about the human body has limits to its own strength so it doesn't damage itself | not--bot--swear Just so guys know. Hysterical strength is basically body not holding back and going %100 though there is great danger hurting yourself or breaking something since ignoring pain and going %100. There case where kid deadlifted car save sibling but,cracked 8 his teeth during because he clenching his jaw so hard. So whilst can lift car or fight off polar bears probably going break somethin

"I'll Do It Myself" Moments in History

When it comes to a particular scientific breakthrough, or generally trying to prove something can be done, sometimes it comes down to one person putting it all on the line and hammering it out themselves. History is pretty wild, but also this Tumblr thread proves why mundane people are incredibly important to history. Also, here's the very fast story of the first soldier to take way too many military-grade amphetamines.

Majestic Atrocities of the Australian Natural World

It's no secret that Australian wildlife runs the gamut of alien, to huge, to venomous, to dangerous, to huge again, to just plain freaky. It's a good reminder that most of us don't have to check our shoes for snakes, or run the risk of stepping on a spider that's so big it should pay rent. For some more scariness, here are ominous signs that speak the language of fear.

The Hercules beetle is a species of rhinoceros beetle and it's one of the largest flying insects out there. And when those wings start beating it seriously sounds like it's cutting grass. Anyway sweet dreams.

You thought Guitar Hero was dead, but nope. It's kind of remarkable that people are still doing this. We remember being afraid of this song at regular speed, but these modified attempts are amazing, and frankly kind of scary.

Tales of Extreme Stinginess

We personally have done some ridiculously inconvenient things to save not enough money. When you realize that you're spending 3 hours and gas money to go to a store the next town over save three dollars on apple juice, it really makes you reevaluate how much your time is worth. That said, we love a deal and here are stories of people's sketchy cheap buys that ended up being their best purchases. On the other side there are people who try to bully and swindle people out of their dollars or complain over the contents of a dollar taco, and those entitled people need to pack up their rotten attitudes.

This probably seems like the furthest thing from anything you're worried about right now. But hey, look at that, you can make a rooster fall asleep by drawing a line in front of its face.

This mad sausage man turns things that aren't sausage into sausage and honestly it's more satisfying than we'd expect. Seeing a person put things into sausage that you never thought possible is some weird combination of gross but intriguing. But I guess that's how the sausage, is...uh...made.

Tattoo Parlor Has Epic Response for Entitled Customer

Sometimes people feel like being a paying customer makes them impervious to criticism, but when it comes to responding to entitled customers who don't reveal the full story, the businesses themselves tend to have some pretty damning responses. Here's one where a business owner leveled with a guy who complained over a dollar taco. This one has an interesting twist regarding that pesky "voice was too high" remark.

A bad customer leaves a one star review for a tattoo parlor so the business has a funny response | Absolutely horrible. Came here one day with two friends who wanted an ear piercing and nipple piercing. After getting yelled at walking wrong door, which is not at all marked went get piercings and one young woman my party denied service nose ring because her "voice too high is insane and discriminatory wanted tattoo but after way have been treated this establishment wouldn't let them touch with

Bears are no joke, and this guy just shouts a bear away with the mightiest of roars. Don't try this at home. Most of us probably could just yeet a bear away with a yell.

This is what people want to see, right? Just a guy pushing more than plates? The ripped has become the ripper. Either way that sound leaves very little to the imagination. Looks like he'll need new pants sooner than he thinks.

Tenant Escapes Fraudulent Deal with Thieving Landlord

This tenant found themselves in a deal they didn't agree to with a landlord who tried to steal from them. So they took stock of the things that they could legally control, and made them an ultimatum. Sometimes landlords will try to scam their tenants, but it doesn't work out for them.

The video doesn't offer much explanation as to why these guys are detonating anything at the end of this pipe, but holy crap. The sound and speed is reminiscent of a jet breaking the sound barrier. Surprisingly, the op says that only basic earplugs are required for protection against this monster.

This bar code reader is connected to a a speaker rather than a cash register, and scanning different bar codes generates different sounds. It sounds like it makes good impromptu techno. Pretty cool.

Tumblr User Expounds Tolkien's Wonderful Nerdery

Tumblr users apparently have a lot of time on their hands, and they use it for amusingly specific and labor intensive thoughts like the relationship between elves eyes and the curvature of middle earth, or discussing the full versions of classic sayings. We're glad people get so into stuff, like this Tumblr thread that makes history fun.
