Library Themed Humor to Check Out

As we get older, most of us tend to think less and less about libraries, and in a way that's regrettable. It's a confusing trend too, because as we've gotten older, our desire to take advantage of free things has only gotten stronger. Knowledge is power, or something. Here's a twitter thread of a librarian's insights about the general public.

Hilarious Tweets From The World Of Hogwarts

This wonderful Twitter account takes a look at the world of Hogwarts without the rose colored glasses. We can easily forget how much darker the humor in the iconic movies would be with just a few elements changed. In all fairness, Harry Potter did possess an uncanny knack for always using the Expelliarmus spell in circumstances that certainly called for something with a little more pepper in it.

Fictional Characters People Genuinely Hate

Sometimes a character is created to be hated by design, and you have to hand it to the creator for making such a realistically hateable person. Other times the character's actions over time build up until you realize that putting them in a realistic context implies that they're something like an irresponsible traitor to their family. For more thoughts on media, here are simple plot holes that ruined movies for people.

Entitled Dude Demands Textbook, Doesn't Realize He's The Problem

This guy is given multiple opportunities to share the book, and after being shut down for a legitimate reason decides to get super rude about it. All thing aside, this sounds like a really bad strategy to get access to a textbook. Some students don't get it, like when this rude entitled student exploded when denied a classmate's project. The world has its unfair share of entitled people who need to abandon their nonsense.

Entitled guy demands textbook and then gets rude | kinda important be library most tomorrow though if want join way can both use don't work well library, sorry s too loud general areas but too quiet silent areas wouldn't mind if came my house could work

Regrettable and Dumb Spelling Fails

School wasn't fun for any of us, but in the long run it can pay to know how to spell really basic stuff and not look like a moron in public. On a daily basis, people come in contact with a lot of spelling fails that make us curse our education system. At least spelling fails make someone feel smart.

With commentary from SciManDan, we're taken through an amazing journey as a flat earther rips up a children's science book that he deems to be round earth propaganda in a Target. He buys the book anyway, so while he seems content with his incredibly limited world view, what he truly fears is the wrath of a Target manager watching him destroy product. Just kinda makes you sad.

Tumblr Physicists Theorize About Curvature Of Middle Earth And Legolas' Scary Elf Eyes

Tumblr physicists took things a bit far when they theorized about the curvature of Middle Earth, and why Legolas' scary elf eyes are so haunting. Sometimes it's best to just accept the fantasy world as it comes. Now we can all await the day that Flat Earthers adopt the, "we're actually elves" theory.
