Dumbest Things People Get Upset Over

It's no secret that people tend to take things too personally. A statement about your own favorite TV show will be interpreted as an attack on their favorite TV show. An attempt to pass someone on the freeway can turn into an impromptu drag race. Here are some incredibly minor and absurd things people tend to react to as if they've been slapped in the face. There's just some petty stuff that that people are extremely passionate about.

Tumblr Thread: Dude Actually Having Fun In an Old Picture

As ridiculously out of place as it seems, this picture is actually confirmed by the American Museum of Natural History as being totally legit. In a world where every single photo of old-timey people is dour as hell, it makes sense to actually have fun with it. The saddest thing is that, with the photo being about 120 years old, we don't get to talk to this guy. For more interesting history stuff, here's a Tumblr Thread that makes history fun.

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.

Twitter Thread: The Human Body's Evolutionary Leftovers

Awesome, our bodies are like natural history museums. Apparently, we're brimming with evolutionary leftovers, and Dorsa Amir mapped out a way to play around with some of these in a fun Twitter thread.

Tumblr Explores Human Nature with "Knife Roomba"

One of Tumblr's favorite things to do is expound on human nature in discussions, essays and threads about the role human beings as team "hold my beer" in the universe. It's generally regarded, out of self interest and flattery that we're basically badass space orcs. These kinds of discussions go on to describe Earth as the type of planet whose wildlife could fight off an alien invasion. So in this context, the idea that a human ship would have a knife Roomba affectionately referred to as "Stabby" not only makes perfect sense, but sort of makes us want to get one right now.

Tumblr thread describes sci fi humans as having a stabbing knife roomba | sepulchritude on topic humans being intergalactic “hold my beer" species: imagine an alien stepping onto human starship and seeing space roomba with knife duct taped onto just wandering around ship doesn't have any special intelligence s just normal space roomba. there are other space roombas on ship and they don't have knives s just this one. knife space roomba has full clearance every room ship. occasionally crew members

Creative Tumblr Thread Imagines Earth As Space Australia from Alien Perspective

It's compelling and somewhat flattering to think of Earth as the most dangerous place in the galaxy, with humans being the only ones crazy enough to tame it. This thought brings fun ideas such as the idea of humans as super resilient space orcs, or the idea that aliens trying to invade Earth could be stopped by local wildlife. It's informative, fun, and somewhat self indulgent.
