Tumblr User Assumes That Sauron Isn't Sexy, Gets Told the Truth

It's a story as old as time. Someone tries to make a point about popular fiction. Another person makes a bold claim. Then the rest of us all get to learn that a bunch of people have a thing for the bad guy from Lord of The Rings. It's reminiscent of these tumblr users who had questions about gay Klingons or this quick tumblr post that asked the hard questions about centaurs.

Tumblr Thread: Elves Are Flat Earthers For A Reason

As it turns out, Legolas doesn't need to worry about that silly horizon. Nor does any other elf in Tolkien's wild word. Tolkien lore actually shines light on the true nature of elves, and their ability to see the world as a flat disc, while everyone else sees it as a globe. Pretty fun stuff. Check out some more gold from Tumblr with this thread about the crude king of satire, Skweezy Jibbs.

We've got a new contender for "things nobody would think to ask for but are still fun": Uruk-hai from Lord of the Rings overdubbed with normal voices. If anything it makes them seem more approachable.

You might think that you've cringed hard before, but you haven't seen this dude try to get a class riled up before an exam, before. All of his fiery, emboldened passion is met with a devastating tidal wave of gross indifference from the rest of the classroom.

This is just magical. Lord of the Rings fans' dreams just came true. The Zoom reunion brings together so many of the familiar faces from the Lord of the Rings movies. Plus, it seems like a lot of the cast genuinely gets along with one another in real life.

Tumblr Thread: Elves Are Flat Earthers With Scary Eyes

This fun Tumblr thread has physicists banding together to illustrate the absurd reality of what elves eyes might look like, while factoring in the curvature of Middle Earth, while they're at it. The resulting picture is an unsettling one, for sure. All in all, it's fun to see how ridiculous things can turn out when logic is applied to a fantasy world.

Tumblr users apparently have a lot of time on their hands, and they use it for amusingly specific and labor intensive thoughts like the relationship between elves eyes and the curvature of middle earth, or discussing the full versions of classic sayings.

Tumblr Physicists Theorize About Curvature Of Middle Earth And Legolas' Scary Elf Eyes

Tumblr physicists took things a bit far when they theorized about the curvature of Middle Earth, and why Legolas' scary elf eyes are so haunting. Sometimes it's best to just accept the fantasy world as it comes. Now we can all await the day that Flat Earthers adopt the, "we're actually elves" theory.

Twitter Thread Explains Confusing Parts In Lord Of The Rings Like They're A DnD Campaign

If only the stories didn't predate DnD by 20ish years right? That being said, maybe this will clarify some of the murkier points throughout Lord of the Rings, for anyone who found themselves confused, while having a decent grasp on DnD knowledge.
