Tumblr Thread: Becoming an Ant God

It stands to reason that if you saw a circle of ants chanting your name, you wouldn't just ignore it. Well, you shouldn't ignore ants in general; that's how you get ants. But still, if they formed a tiny circle and started praising you, it would be hard to let go. This tumblr thread takes the premise to its logical conclusion of roommate disputes being fought through the lens of ant holy war. Here's another good one about tumblr imagining aliens being fought off by wildlife.

Creepy And Strange Things People Saw Working Night Shift

Not too much good happens between the hours of 3 and 5 in the morning. If anyone is out and about, there's a good chance they're not out to shop for groceries or buy flowers for their mom. Sometimes people are out to lurk. Darkness does that. People see some creepy stuff working the night shift.

Uncomfortably Cursed and Wildly Misplaced Foods

Why should food be constrained by terms like "appealing" and "not horrible?" Why should food only go in a mouth? Why don't we put scrambled eggs in a shoe? It's all about breaking down paradigms man. Sure, a lot of these are horrible cursed foods, but sometimes it's time to really freak out the squares with some ham ice cream and peanut butter and jelly body art. Open up Satan's crock pot for some cursed foods.

Quick Tumblr Thread On How Dolphins Started

As we've all had hammered into our heads from an early age, dolphins and whales are mammals. Put extremely simply, dolphins started when some kind of weird pig/rat/wolf/hippo creature figured land was a bad move and there were more opportunities back in the water. That in-between thing looks like a failed science experiment. Nature has produced some strange things, like this cold-blooded freak-devil cave goat. For some mythological biology, here's Tumblr's take on dragon evolution.

funny dolphin tumblr thread | just-shower-thoughts kind dick move create animals require air, then confine them freaking ocean water-based-introspection Follow If are talking about dolphins they used be wolf like creatures due scarcity food they had hunt water so they slowly evolved into water mammals, dolphins still have claw bones but they are unnecessary and dolphins will get rid them with time and will develop abilities breath under water (This also partially applies whales)

Twitter Thread: Man Goes To McDonald's, Strange Drive Thru Adventure Ensues

Real or not, this Twitter thread about a man's strange journey through a completely bizarre McDonald's drive thru is definitely one for the books. Fast food establishments have an uncanny knack for attracting all kinds of unexpected situations in this wild universe. Sometimes it's just entitled customers that are pitch fits about a whole bunch of nothing. Other times, it's the actual employees and they're trying to sell you apple pies of McDonald's dollar menu, at a discount. 

A ridiculous Twitter thread about a very strange drive thru experience. | Josh Raby @JoshRaby 16h 's 1AM and decided wanted milkshake.

Intense Warning Signs That Should Likely Be Followed

There's no beating around the bush when it comes to spectacular hazards and ominous signs. It's pretty hard to ignore a sign that says "watch your step: open mine shafts" or "radioactive zone" or "step past this line and your mistakes are your own." The creepiest and most sinister signs often mean the most business. It just goes to show that paying attention is usually a good idea.

As explained in this video, the mouth movements you see can influence how you hear a particular sound, even if it's the same sound. It's the McGurk Effect at work, and much like Yanny/Laurel or that damn blue/gold dress it just makes us feel stupid to know how dumb our brains are.

Real-Life Glitches People Experienced

Sometimes everyday life gets altered in a way that makes us think we're living in a simulation. Sometimes it's just a creepy moment, sometimes it's a strange coincidence. Either way, sometimes something so strange or unlikely happens that we just have to wonder if we're living in a boring, crappy matrix.

George Lucas finally got his big break on the silver screen when he accidentally showed up in the middle of this short documentary called "Nuclear Waste: Fission Products & Transuranics from Thorium & Uranium" a few years back. Honestly he steals the scene.
