History Memes For The Ages

More and more history is being made every day, so naturally people are gonna make history memes about it. Sure, it's probably more helpful to learn about the Spanish Inquisition in an actual book, but history memes are pretty good too. They're like 90 percent as good, probably. Yeah, that sounds right.

IT Guy Learns Machine Is Stuck On In "Explode" Setting

It's not crazy to wonder, maybe there's a way to avoid having a piece of equipment risk explosion if one computer monitor fails. Not trying to be pushy here, but it's a thought. Tech support sees its own share of nightmares, and we should thank them every day for solving the problems everyone else seems so inept at dealing with. For another fun tech support story, here's the tale of Miss Jones.

Twitter Thread: The World's Most Ridiculous Bird Names

This fun Twitter thread from @Stu_Bot3000 runs a quick study on some of the world's silliest bird names. Suffice to say, we had no idea there were these kinds of bird names running amok out there. It's as if some of the folks in charge of naming these birds have some sort of vendetta against birds, because some of these names are just brutal.

Un-Fun Facts to Quote Around Respected Colleagues

Knowledge is power, and some weird knowledge has the power to alienate strangers. Knowing how bleak, desolate, painful and precarious the world is can be a lot to handle, but it might make people think you're smart. That's kinda cool, right? Some facts are too sad, which is why it also helps to know wild sex facts to quote during an awkward silence.

Tumblr Thread: Sensory Deprived Brains Turn Into Hallucination Factories

Anyone who has ever experimented with one of those radical sensory deprivation tanks or chilled out in a pitch black cave for a hot sec will know that your brain gets bored very quickly and starts to churn out some trippy hallucinations to keep itself preoccupied till you return to the land of light. It's just a bit of a disorienting thing to mull over. Maybe this is why some people in this weird universe insist that reality as we experience it is nothing more than our brains' best guesses at what's actually happening. Like a collective hallucination of sorts. Even if that's the case, we're still all in this hallucination together. So might as well be a kind human being and enjoy the ride while it lasts.

Thread Explains Why Celebrities Always Look Better In Clothes

So the reason you think you look like a pile of dog crap in the same shirt as Hugh Jackman is cause all celebrity clothes are tailored specifically to fit them. Bunch of bastards. I guess the answer is to either get your clothes tailored like actors and models or to stop trying to look like you belong in a magazine. Or just give up on the whole thing, fashion is stupid anyway.

History Memes to Become One with Time

Knowing some history isn't just a good way to place yourself in the context of your world, it's also a great way to get really specific references in the form of history memes.

Tumblr Thread: Fur Clothing Vs. Vegan Clothing

This informative Tumblr thread shines light on the reasoning behind some people choosing to wear fur clothing, in spite of the controversy such a fashion decision can generate. Sounds like it boils down to the longevity of the clothing, and also how fur can potentially be most effective at keeping someone warm when they're trying to brave a dangerously cold Canadian arctic tundra. 

A Tumblr thread about the real reasons behind people wearing fur clothing. | teaboot Follow understand why people dislike leather and animal products. But leather is such good resource?

Tumblr Thread: Ask Culture Vs. Guess Culture

No can be a complete sentence. This informative Tumblr thread does a deep dive on the differences between "Ask Culture" and "Guess Culture." At the very least, it'd be nice if some folks read this and are able to learn a helpful thing or two about being a more functional communicator. It can give someone who has a hard time saying no all kinds of anxiety if you continue to ask and ask, and guilt trip on top of that. Learning to accept a "no" right off the bat, is a crucial thing in life. Check out some more gold from Tumblr with these cooks that bonded over dysfunctional family members.

Tumblr Thread: Crazy Reason People Believe In Witches

Man, this Tumblr thread shines light on the fascinating, potential reason that so many people were possessed by the notion that witches are real. If you currently believe they are, no judgment. That being said, this thread points out there was some intense fungus poisoning going on that could've contributed toward nasty convulsions and hallucinations. What a trip.
