Twitter Thread: People Show Their Age With Things Young People Wouldn't Get

Sooner or later, everyone becomes a relic of a bygone era. There's a moment we all have when some new way to play a movie comes out, and we remember the now-obsolete technology when it was new. It happened with VHS tapes and it will somehow happen with all-digital content. It's sort of exciting and sort of scary, but to make ourselves feel safer at the end of the day we can always indulge in powerful images of sensory nostalgia.

Twitter Thread: Strict Parenting Sets Kids Up For Failure

It's not completely outside the ordinary to see people end up acting like little rascals in response to the airtight confines of strict parenting. There's something hardwired into so many of us that creates a situation where we find ourselves rebelling just for the sake of being defiant. So, you put a kid in an environment where they're regularly being told what they can't do, with little room being left for them to let their wings fly, and you've pretty much got a situation ripe for rule breaking behavior. Naturally, this Twitter thread about how strict parenting can have the capacity for setting kids up for failure later in life, made some waves on Twitter.

Twitter User Demands Drawings of Bepantsed Vulture, Gets Them

There is actually a legitimate medical reason for giving the vulture its pants, but that is buried under the undeniable spectacle of a bird wearing pants. The concept was all-consuming enough for Chappell Ellison to demand artists renderings of the panted vulture, and what came of it was, well, more vultures in pants. Nice. It's reminiscent of the time people were asked to share their art and draw a duck.
