Twitter Thread: Even Vampires Hate The Bottom Of The Ocean

Not even vampires are down with the prospect of kicking it at the bottom of the sea. I mean, it's understandable. It seems like too often we're hearing about some new, unfathomable monster being discovered in those dark and murky depths. It's pretty much the underworld. So, it's reasonable that immortal beings would eventually end up taking a permanent hiatus from exploring that area. 

For some more gold from Tumblr check out this Tumblr post about a barista encountering a real life mad hatter.

For a different direction of a grandma story, here's a cringey guy who tried to correct a Japanese grandma on her own pronunciation of Japanese.

Dungeons and Dragons lets your most creative friends come up with amazing ways to send you on adventures. Sometimes dungeon masters take the story far enough that it actually draws out a real emotional response from the players. People think a lot about fantasy worlds, like how this guy proposes that wizards are a bunch of magic snobs or this thing about dwarves having intelligent super beards.
