GUESS WHO GOT SEVEN SHIRTS FROM TEEFURY IN THE MAIL TODAY
What if, instead of tropical fish tanks, you had a live video stream of a section of coral reef? Every time you “fed” the fish, it would be a button you clicked to donate to the reef’s protection. As more you “feed” the fish, you’re granted more access to other reefs. And nightvision cameras are included so you can see your wild pets at night too without disturbing them with harsh lighting.
Perfect for folks like me who love fish, but do not love cleaning tanks.
Let’s be real, in a time before the internet people didn’t have more adventures and make more meaningful connections. They watched TV and listened to CDs. Before that they listened to records and read magazines. Before that they listened to the radio and read bad dime novels. Before that they embroidered or some shit.
People have been staying inside and ignoring other people for as long as there have been buildings.
this is it. this is the most important gif on tumblr.com
no okay but let me tell you a story
so at school I’m generally a pretty quiet person. I talk to a few people, I have a few friends, but I keep to myself a lot. So anyway, during lunch I’m on tumblr mobile, and this thing comes up. I put the gif onto full screen, and kind of half laugh at it. Then this guy who I have literally never talked to before walks by and then slowly back up and starts looking at my phone screen. I try to explain what I’m looking at, but really, how the hell do you explain this? Anyway, he waves over one of his friends so his friend comes over and looks at it. I’m still sitting in my chair, and we are all still completely silent. Soon more people begin to gather. 12 people, to be exact. 12 people, many of which I have never spoken to before, standing in a large, silent, ritual-esque circle around my iphone which is playing this gif on loop. After about five minutes, the first guy goes “how long is this?” and I was like “uh, its, um, its a gif, so it kind of goes on forever.” he nods and says “perfect”. These were the only words spoken throughout this whole event.
also, having spoken with both parents about the shitshow that is Lucy, we are all in full agreement that Luc Besson and the writers did absolutely zero research on Taiwan and that the movie is not worth our time or money.
like dad told me: they didn’t realize that Taiwan is one of the safest places in the world, below Sweden?
and the look on mom’s face was laugh-out-loud hilarious.
I hope to hell this movie tanks in Taiwan, if not everywhere.
#why I will never watch lucy#why you shouldn’t support lucy#because fuck luc besson and the creators for depicting my ancrestral homeland as a crime-ridden hellhole#and backdrop for your white heroine#all so she can murder Asian guys and be in the right because of authorial fiat#at least they’re not running the you speak English BS ad anymore#but they should be ashamed for having that scene in the movie#because it’s fucking ridiculous#that’s like being in the US and shooting someone in the head for not speaking Mandarin#except if Lucy shot the guy in the head she would be all over the news for it#because GUN CONTROL IS A THING over in Taiwan#if she’s so goddamn smart and superpowered#why didn’t she realize that she’d draw attention to herself that way#OH WAIT#THIS IS A MOVIE THAT COULDN’T GIVE A FUCK ABOUT EVEN LOOKING AT THE WIKIPEDIA ENTRY ON TAIWAN#clearly my expectations are way too high here (via isanah)
I’m so fucking mad about this movie.
Because when I first heard “ScarJo gets superpowers” it sounded awesome.
But then everything about it was awful and racist and fucked up.
