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.

Tumblr Post: Humans Need Their Plant Friends

Those plants do a whole lot more for humans than just providing oxygen. This post claims that plants are also invaluable when it comes to humans keeping a grasp on their sanity. It turns out that the plant doesn't even have to be real. Just being able to merely look at something resembling a plant helps keep the mind's corridors from being overran by the ghostly howls of pure insanity. Check out some more random gold from Tumblr with this thread about vegan clothing vs. fur clothing.

Twitter Users Share Their Thanksgiving Traditions

There's no doubt that Thanksgiving is completely different this year for most of us. Many folks have been forced to cancel their plans to see family members. This is a time that's testing us all, and certainly making us dig deep. But with this tumultuous rollercoaster comes an eventual state of acceptance, and a recognition that this storm too shall pass. Before it does, it's on us to find ways to still have fun during the holidays from the safe and cozy confines of our respective homes. Plus, if any family members bring up awkward topics during a potential Zoom Thanksgiving Dinner, you can just pause your screen and blame it on bad reception. That's quite the clutch get-out-of-jail-free card right there.

Tumblr Thread : Trees Are Low Key Monsters

If there's one inevitable and unsettling takeaway that you'll likely have from this Tumblr post about various kinds of trees, it's that trees are very weird and we should all be slightly frightened by them. This post reminds us of the other Tumblr thread about the monster plant that is the Kudzu. Maybe one day, humans will peace out from earth, take our troubles elsewhere, and leave the arboreal overlords to roam and rule over the earth.

Tumblr Thread: People Who Ask vs People Who Guess

As it turns out, there are different ways people try to get the things they want, and they don't always line up perfectly.

Things That Are Way Newer Than People Think

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.
