Tumblr Thread Explains How The Color Magenta Technically Doesn't Exist

Tumblr gets in real deep sometimes. Sure, a lot of it is just memes and thought exercises, but some threads get into stuff like the historical concept of the color purple in rhyming fashion, or how modern cats became domesticated. So anyway, here's why magenta is a made up color based on your brain just doing its best.

Screw fancy software, apparently you can create a new club banger with just a small piece of metal. The next question is: When does the album come out?

One screw up and it's all over. Broken faces and trombone parts all over the place. This is probably the best trombone performance you'll see where they never have to play a single note.

Dog Learning To Talk Through Custom-Made Soundboard

Wait, what?! We've heard of parents teaching their infants sign language to communicate at an early age, but teaching a dog to talk? That's definitely something you don't see everyday. Or ever. 

Christina Hunger, a speech-language pathologist, has devised a soundboard to help her dog Stella literally tell her things. Things such as being too tired after playing and would like to take a nap, or instead of playing she would rather like to be eating, or even she'd like to go outside. 

Dogs, like all animals, are always trying to communicate with us humans in their own way but with Hunger's soundboard, Stella is quite literally getting her voice heard.

Company Creates Soap Bars For Literally Everyone (36 Soaps)

And if you can't find one that suits you, A. you're either lying or B. you'll definitely find some for people you know. 

We still think you're lying, though. 

Whiskey River Soap Co. is different than all other soap companies out there. Why? Written on their website, the company "was founded more than fourteen million years ago in the outskirts of Ancient Rome by a ragtag group of freelance gladiators, stray dogs and out-of-work magicians. Apart, these charlatans were nothing but lazy ne'er do wells akin to a modern-day cable company, but when they encountered one another by chance at the dumpster behind the monster truck rodeo and picked up that legendary tube of half-used superglue, they formed a bond that would last throughout the ages, and even be featured on the History Channel as incontestable proof of alien life."

Name another soap company you know that has such a rich history! 

Okay, maybe they weren't being 100% honest. However, and more importantly, they claim to "very much admire magicians, monster truck rodeos and superglue."

You had us at 'superglue'. 

So starting over, Whiskey River Soap Co., they make wonderful scented soaps and candles, that hopefully also make you laugh. They have also recently introduced a new line of pocket journals. Now, they're "all about creating our own products locally because we're not just selling you a funny label wrapped around something mass-produced in China."

Way to go, Whiskey River Soap Co.! We love you guys already.
