Things That Seem to Take Ages

Our perception of time can be seriously altered by what's going on, especially if we're under incredible stress, experiencing uncertainty, or microwaving a burrito in a completely quiet house. Time and space can also change based on where you live, as evidenced by this Tumblr thread on cultures colliding over time and space.

Tumblr Thread Gets Way Too Existential about a Laminated Paper Towel

It's pretty well known that Tumblr can escalate quickly, such as taking a small thing and making it snowball into a grandiose rumination on life and everything. Just one image of a laminated paper towel inspired questions about life, existence and purpose.

43 Interesting and Sometimes Outrageous Vintage Food Advertisements

Some of these are kind of cool. Some of these are a little shocking. Some of them are gross. Some of them are straight-up weird. Post World War II America was a place of seemingly endless prosperity. How this attitude resulted with ads for putting Mayo on pears and putting chow mein in a can, we'll never know. The snapshot of the past is interesting enough, especially with some of the stuff here that never caught on.

Just look at them snap. Look at that painful, stilted movement. There's something strange going on behind those '80s eyes. It's almost as if they're thinking "look at us, we will never not be cool." Oh man were they wrong.
