conspiracy theory: people on other social media sites keep saying tumblr is dead so they can mine us for resources without anyone else going to the source
half the comments on any given tumblr screenshot post are like “wow I miss tumblr, shame it died” and the screenshot is from, like, last tuesday
TIL the song “Hotel California” by The Eagles has no real meaning. The band wanted to create “sort of like an episode of the Twilight Zone”, and “"We decided to create something strange, just to see if we could do it”.
And by golly it worked
Holy shit wait a second. Are you telling me that my literal childhood understanding of a cursed castle-like hotel filled with doomed souls trapped in a sisyphean nightmare was actually more accurate than all the pretentious “it’s about drugs and Hollywood” interpretations I had forced on me later?!
Hah, the cops are stuck in a Captiva
What a chump. That’s probably punishment enough for being a pig
So recently the mayor of my city placed a bunch of sharp stones under a bridge commonly used by homeless people to escape the harsh tropical storms we experience during the summer
A priest decided that was an utterly anti humanitarian course of action (rightfully so) and so his solution.. was to destroy those rocks with a hammer.
I’m not Catholic (in fact, I grew up Jewish and am now atheist) but I feel this is what religion is supposed to be about. Using the divine to help humans behave a little more… human.
I love that this is totally illegal but nobody is gonna convict a priest for helping someone out
i am begging my american followers to learn about tax brackets
Especially how they disincentivize growth and upward mobility.
you have not learned about tax brackets
alright i got this reply so fast i think i need to address this explicitly. tax brackets do not mean you will make less than before when you get a raise! say your income is taxed at 20% but have a 30% tax bracket starting at $10k, this means all the money you make up to 10k is taxed at 20%! anything above that, minus 10k, is taxed at 30%. the $10k you made remains at 20%, unaffected by the higher tax bracket. if you made exactly $10k you’ll have $8k after taxes; if you made $11k that’s 10k at 20% and 1k at 30%, so $8700! you should never turn down a raise because of tax brackets!
it surprised me when i learned this! but it also surprised me that i didn’t already know it because it seems so obvious in retrospect! it’s almost as if…some people…profit from us not knowing it
listen I’m just dreading the day when they’re gonna screw us over and close this site for lack of use. you already see people talking like “oh I miss Tumblr” all the time like we’re not still RIGHT FREAKING HERE enjoying our fandom shenanigans in real time…like half the memes on Twitter and Insta are just reposted from here??? uh?? what is that saying???
like I KNOW that Tumblr usage has plummeted and half the blogs that follow me are probably dormant by now. I know that. but if other social media outlets aren’t gonna learn a thing or two about hiding follower counts or allowing tag-based organization or ACTUALLY SHOWING POSTS IN CHRONOLOGICAL ORDER FOR ONCE, then I don’t want them touching this one
seriously what on EARTH are you talking about
