Weird, Silly and Stupid Tumblr Gems

At their best, radically random Tumblr gems are like a big crazy thought salad, with specific historical facts and pop culture references mingling with weird photos of animals in strange situations, as well as some surprisingly dark musings on bones for good measure. These totally bizarre and random Tumblr nuggets have no direction and they should be no other way.

Quick Tumblr Thread: Intellectual Elitism Gets Called Out

This quick and funny Tumblr thread addresses the absurd and unnecessary nature of intellectual elitism. Just cause some writing isn't the most popular thing in school (or anywhere else) doesn't mean that it doesn't possess value. Some folks accept that, some folks don't.

Tumblr Thread: Raging Nerds And An Orangutan

One does not simply bring up the Orangutan at an Edgar Allen Poe conference, unless they are ready to brandish their sharpest mental swords, and to debate, breathlessly, until there is steam coming out of their ears, and fire in the pit of their hearts. Yes, the Orangutan has a bit of a reputation in the community of Edgar Allen Poe academics. Saying "Orangutan" at a Poe conference is basically equivalent to muttering "Voldemort" at Hogwarts. Tis a big no-no. If you're looking for more wild Tumblr threads, check out the recent thread where Tumblr went full mythological scientist on dragon evolutions. Fun stuff.
