Our psychological state allows us to see only what we want/need/feel to see at a particular time. What are the first three words that you see?
This would be an interesting thing to see other people try.
I got: Love, Beauty, Success
Took a few minutes but, popularity, lust???, and youth.
Love, Time, Sty.
'Cos I'm a busy little piggy.
what happened in roughly 1870 though
why was there temporary internet
with a few people searching for pokemon?
It’s a search of Google books, but the question still stands, what the Fuck happened in 1870
I CAN ANSWER THIS!!
In the Cornish dialect of English, Pokemon meant ‘clumsy’ (pure coincidence).
In the mid 1800s there was a surge of writing about the Cornish language and dialect in an attempt to preserve them with glossaries and dictionaries being written. I wrote about it HERE.
Wow, that was interesting! Thankyou for teaching me some Cornish today. :-)
“how the fuck are you making hd gifsets of a movie that’s still in theatres” a book by me
the sequel: “how did you make that gifset that episode aired 4.01 seconds ago”
the trilogy: “what the hell that awards show is airing this very moment where the fuck are all these gifs comings from”
The quadrilogy: how the fuck do you make gifs
- I’m far too busy reading misinformation and trolling to take half a minute to look up what the word actually means.
- it’s just a load of privileged middle-class kids looking for things to get offended about. As a privileged middle-class kid myself, I find this offensive.
- I love being feminine, and need a big strong manly husband to look after me! For anyone not so comfortable with their assigned gender role - tough luck, freaks.
- I’m not a victim of anything. While we’re on the subject, I don’t need hospitals because I’m not ill and I don’t need a legal system because I’m not a criminal.
- there are anti-discrimination laws now. And everyone always abides by and agrees with The Law, hence we live in a crime-free utopia with no prejudice or hatred of anyone.
- they all hate men and want to opress and castrate them; just like all Muslims are sucide bombers and all white people are Nazis. Anyway, I have to go and send some death threats to women’s rights campaigners now, bye.
- MY religion says YOU can’t.
- Feminists are so rude and agressive - whenever I try to talk to them, they keep saying I’m stupid and wrong and telling me to fuck off! I can’t imagine why…
- women in other cultures have it worse. Your concerns are therefore invalid.
- Femininsts are being brainwashed by a mysterious cabal that feeds them propaganda and tells them they’re ‘empowered’! I can’t explain who, how, where, when or why, but that’s what happens, trust me.
- I don’t want to politicise my gender and sexuality. Actually, why am I even joining in with this? Why do I have an opinion on something I’m not interested in?
- being primarily by, for, and about women, it’s obviously just a load of silly whining about made-up threats. They’re probably pre-menstrual or something. They’d feel so much better if they just lightened up and had a make-over party. Now, stop worrying your pretty little head about things you obviously can’t understand and put your apron back on, there’s a good girl.
I love this comics

It’s actually impossible to measure how many fucks a corvid give because there is no device sensitive enough to register such a tiny amount.
science/animal side of tumblr… explain to me the birb thing
Tail Pulling is a behavior noted in many corvids. The practical application is to create a distraction that will allow the birb to make off with the target’s food. Imagine being in the lunch room and a large fellow has a Twinkie you covet. You can’t just take it from him because he’ll defend his Twinkie. But if you thwap him on the back of his neck and then dash around to snag the Twinkie while he investigates, you stand a decent chance of enjoying spongey goodness. This is basically that in birb form.
Except corvids don’t only do this as a distraction. Sometimes they seem to just being doing it to mess with other animals/birbs. But to use my lunch room analogy, there are times you might thwap someone sneakily on the back of the neck just for amusement. Primates exhibit behavior that appears to be just be annoying other animals for amusement. Given how intelligent crows are, its not unlikely that this is a manifestation of an innate desire to just fuck with someone else for the fun of it. Such as this from the link above:
THANK YOU FOR THE BIRB KNOWLEDGE
This cheered me up, and I hope it will you.
…Hang on, ‘birb’? o_@ When did that become a word?
