Inventions That Are Hardly Ever Used For Their Intended Purpose

One of the things that makes human beings unique is our ingenuity. For example, the famous cookie tin/sewing kit. A variety of medications, toys and uh, personal products are inventions that are now used for something other than their intended purpose. That doesn't make them any less useful. It means people are good at adapting. People are also pretty dumb, which is why we have so many brilliant ideas that were stupid upon review.

Tumblr Thread on Statistics Is a Necessary Dumbness Test

Math is hard for some folks on tumblr, but sometimes they really get into it, like the time they did the math on forging a literal blood sword. It's super common to see a headline along the lines of "smoking drywall dust increases risk of boneitis by 300%" which sounds extremely scary. But that number only means something if you know the potential boneitis risks of drywall smoking in the first place. We're not super good at math, but if the risk is only .05% and an increase of 300% raises it to .2%, just go ahead and smoke all the drywall dust you want.

don't smoke drywall dust. Also boneitis is a fictional disease from Futurama.

Oh boy, too many feels at once. May River rest in peace.

In the emotional Twitter thread Burgess highlights some of the ways that they managed to infuse River's genuine characteristics with Fallout 4's Dogmeat character.

Twitter Thread: Triscuit's Backstory Is Legit Electric

If there's one way to set yourself apart from the competition, it's clearly to make the extra effort to literally have your biscuits be baked by electricity.

Weird Internet Stuff To Peruse, Amuse and Confuse

There have definitely been some unintended consequences of connecting billions of people in an electronic network of images and symbols. Like, sure it's given deluded weirdos places to groupthink themselves into complete derealization, and for some reason ticket prices have all these weird surcharges now. But also, the internet has provided cursed weirdness from its depths. That's something, right?

So, black holes do crazy, reality-defying things like squeezing matter to a literal vanishing point, trapping light so that there's no point of escape, and just casually warp time and space itself. Naturally, a discussion involving Leonard Susskind, Professor of Theoretical Physics at Stanford, is bound to be a mind-blowing one.
