Tumblr Thread: Thomas The Pain Engine

Those poor trains. As it turns out, the world of Thomas the Tank Engine was much darker than it might've appeared at surface level. Yes, we're talking a dark dystopian zombie train apocalypse kind of setting. Poor Smudger legit got turned into a generator after refusing to show off. If that isn't some kind of twisted way to scare kids into following the rules for fear of grave punishments, I don't know what it is. Whole lot of yikes, indeed. 

An entertaining and dark humored Tumblr thread about Thomas the Tank Engine | frog-and-toad-are-friends My favorite thing about Thomas Tank Engine is canonically takes place train post-apocalypse where Island Sodor is only safe zone totalitarian dystopia which steam trains are routinely killed and their body parts are sold or cannibalized repair If think kidding need read original books leonfroid could please direct source would feel much better if this validated.

Tumblr Thread: The Uniquely Depressing "Fun Pizza" Saga

Tumblr User Rants about Dangers of Deregulation

They say that safety regulations are written in blood and it gets way worse than a few OSHA-defying safety fails. Big companies don't exactly have your best interests at heart, and there's a whole boatload of evidence from the early 1900s to confirm that. For some less dark history, here's tumblr making history fun.

Guy Unsure What To Do With Dad Ash Brick, Comments Section Gets Morbidly Hilarious

We're not exactly sure how relatable this problem is, but at least they have a sense of humor about it. I guess the lesson here is don't wait too long to scatter a loved one's ashes. And I guess the other lesson would be "don't expect helpful solutions from the internet." Facebook commenters can deliver pretty serious burns, like the time they roasted this ad for having an absurd model with a comically tight shirt.
