Tumblr: a magical website with the bizarre, the hilarious and the unexpected. Think you've seen it all? Think again. The best one-liners, random threads and weird thoughts are yet to be discovered.
Learning a language is hard enough as is without factoring in all of the colloquialisms that aren't natural for a non-native speaker. The following posts make fun of translations from English into other languages, but let's not forget how ridiculous English is; you gotta admit that "frog's umbrella" makes a lot more sense than "mushroom"...
Ever wonder how cats became domesticated? Or why on Earth humans decided to bring in the adorable and small predators into our homes in the first place? You've come to the right place!
Tumblr user, Koryos, who studies animal behavior, has written this extremely informative post about how the once-mighty predatory now sits indoors pampered.
It's actually quite fascinating and Koryos has done a wonderful job of explaining it so well!
Get ready to learn!
Women are truly warriors during that time of the month. We have to deal with a lot of blood and sometimes ridiculous amounts of pain that no man will ever fully understand. It's like getting metaphorically stabbed in the uterus every month. But at least you know you're not pregnant! Sounds fun, right?
TGIF, y'all! One of our favorite ways to blow off steam after a long week of work is by watching prank videos. Unfortunately, most "pranksters" on Youtube have started to pull immature, and frankly cruel, pranks like throwing away their boyfriends' video games or girlfriends' makeup. That ain't the kind of pranking we're into. We're into the stuff that will pack a mental punch instead of actually hurting someone. Of course there are a few exceptions that prey on stupid people, but nobody's perfect. This batch of tweets, memes, and gifs is just the kind of silly fun we're looking for when it's time to take a load off.
While we absolutely adore @PetFoolery and especially enjoy his Pixie and Brutus series, it's always fun to see something new! @PetFoolery took a hilarious and extremely weird fact from Tumblr and decided to bring it to life.
Let's just say... it did not disappoint.
One thing that pretty much all of us Millennials can come together over is our deteriorating mental health. The planet is dying, our parents ruined the economy, and none of us will ever be able to retire. It's no wonder that many of us have to see therapists. The good that's come out of that, however, is that we've managed to de-stigmatize therapy - there's certainly something to be said for that!
Alright, this is downright, straight up, all around impressive. And the final result was good enough that you could tell the trees were pretty happy. Tumblr users are a creative bunch, doing stuff like writing an alien invasion story where the aliens are fought off by wildlife or expounding on wacky historical facts. Seriously, following along with MS Paint is brilliant and highly commendable.
Ever have those days where you want something to do but you don't want actually think? That's when we start to re-watch The Office for the sixth time and zone out on our phones. This selection of memes and tweets is perfect for anyone looking to mindlessly scroll through content while pretending to do something like watching tv or catching up on work. We got you.
