Tumblr Thread About Horrifying Monster Mold

So, the Elephant's Foot mold sounds like some sort of mythological Medusa-level monster. Sounds to me like a big heap of forbidden pudding. Seriously, no thank you. Here's to hoping we don't find ourselves one day in the future, being enslaved by black mold overlords. 

A quick Tumblr thread shares the story of a terrifying monster mold in Chernobyl | Text - The image is of a reactor core lava formation in the basement of the Chernobyl nuclear plant. It's called the Elephant's Foot and weighs hundreds of tons, but is only a couple meters across.

Tumblr Thread: The Unsettling Reason For Unrealistic Animation

Here we are yet again with the wonderful, wandering minds of the Tumblr world delivering just the kind of informative, and unsettling thread that really takes the brain for a trip. Apparently, there's an actual reason why us human beings can feel the cringe chills come on when animation seems to be too realistic. It's called the uncanny valley effect. What makes the effect so unsettling, is reflecting on why we could've developed that kind of "survival instinct" in the first place. Was it because there used to be some sort of alien monster thing scouring the globe back in the day that was a threat to homo sapiens' survival? Maybe so, maybe so. Check out some more gold from Tumblr with these cooks that bonded over their dysfunctional family members.

Life looks a lot different now than it did even twenty or thirty years ago. As recently as fifty years ago, even scientists had a hugely different idea of how the world worked. And a hundred years ago? Screw that, no one wants to live in a world without functioning toilet paper or high fives. On the flipside, there's also tons of stuff that's way older than people think.
