Twitter Thread: Mentally Dealing with 6 Months of Global Crisis

For a lot of people, daily life doesn't look like how it used to, and it won't go back to normal tomorrow or the next day. Aisha Ahmad explains that part of getting through it is having a strategy to deal with that 6 month wall and learning how to adapt to a somehow stagnating but also everchanging reality. If it's worth anything, here are some wholesome memes.

Tumblr Thread: Hitting Terminal Meme

Memes are a sort of ephemeral form of communication. Most of them need some sort of context in order to operate well. As this tumblr thread shows, the further we get from some, understanding them becomes a form of cultural anthropology. These ones still mostly make sense though so it's still pretty funny. For more tumblr stuff, here are some random tumblr gems to tumble through.

Tumblr Thread: The Still On-Patrol Submarines

There's a tradition in the U.S. navy that no submarine is lost at sea, and every Christmas a broadcast is sent out to all the crews of those subs still on duty. Naturally, tumblr took it and made it into a whole ghost ship thing, which is somehow macabre but also heartwarming. Why not, people see some unexplained stuff at sea. For a totally classic navy story, here's a Navy operations officer who pulled the laziest move ever.

Tumblr Thread: The Convenience of Repurposed Greeting Cards

As convenient as a greeting card can be, it's a shame they only make them for boiler-plate events like birthdays and holidays. Sometimes you need a greeting card that gets at a more specific issue, and you have to use your creativity to devise a low budget solution. With a flick of a pen, any card can be expertly repurposed.

Twitter Thread: The Time Ruth Bader Ginsberg Talked Smack

Following the passing of Ruth Bader Ginsberg, people were compelled to tell stories of the supreme court justice's impact and legacy. In this instance we have a guy sharing his time working with the justices in a fantasy baseball league. The thought of having a petty fantasy league moment in such an official setting is surreal.

Some individual clerks did.

Tumblr Thread: Extreme Chompin' T-Rex is Living His Best Life

If there's one nice thing about being an adult, it's that you can bankroll at least some of your childhood dreams.

Tumblr Thread: Snoop Dogg Appreciation

The career of Snoop Dogg is long and interesting, and he's managed to work his way into popular culture in a way unlike anyone else. Tumblr fawns over his more down to earth aspects, his cook book, and the fact that Martha Stewart is a convicted felon while he isn't. You can never be too sure of what kind of golden moments will come out of the world of Tumblr.

We can see how this person would have a bit of an issue over the use of a stick of butter in a recipe.

Dude Orders Garfield Toy, Gets Bags of Sand

To be perfectly honest, we thought that Garfield hype had lived a long life and died but for some reason there's still straight-up Garfield-themed restaurants out there that sell merch and are on Twitter. This dude was trying to buy a plush toy when somewhere along the line, someone made a mistake and he got pounds and pounds of sand. The time and frustration that go into constant shipping errors can become a madding roller coaster, like this guy who ordered boxes and kept getting granola.

Tumblr Thread: Pokémon Drawn to Actual Scale
