Tumblr: spreading the world apart, one group at a time.
THIS is the shit that bothers me with tumblr
Okay so, where I live (Canada, Newfoundland) we have the smallest ponies.
And the biggest dogs
Here’s a size comparison for the Newfoundland dog
That is a full grown dog and pony together LOOK AT THAT!
Now if you don’t think that’s the greatest shit ever I don’t know what is!
Canada is the greatest place on earth
stop taking bucky’s metal arm away
stop taking charles’ wheelchair away
stop taking clint’s hearing aids away
disabled superheroes are important stop sucking please
I read this wrong and I was just picturing them all confused as to who keeps taking their stuff.
"Steve have you seen my arm anywhere?"
"Nope, sorry Bucky. By the way, have you seen Clint’s hearing aids? He hasn’t been able to hear a damn thing all day"
It’s probably rocket
P.S. The real world isn’t going to accommodate you and your “comfort.” When you get off Tumblr, there aren’t any trigger warnings. Wearing a nametag with your “gender identity” on it would be absolutely laughable. You’ll have to learn to be an adult and deal with people without being psychotic and wishing death on them.
Rebloging twice because people should have to read this more than once
SOMEONE SAID IT
This is an enormous chain and I’m sorry, but I need to say this:
The laws in the Old Testament were set forth by god as the rules the Hebrews needed to follow in order to be righteous, to atone for the sin of Adam and Eve and to be able to get into Heaven. That is also why they were required to make sacrifices, because it was part of the appeasement for Original Sin.
According to Christian theology, when Jesus came from Heaven, it was for the express purpose of sacrificing himself on the cross so that our sins may be forgiven. His sacrifice was supposed to be the ultimate act that would free us from the former laws and regulations and allow us to enter Heaven by acting in his image. That is why he said “it is finished” when he died on the cross. That is why Christians don’t have to circumcise their sons (god’s covenant with Jacob), that is why they don’t have to perform animal sacrifice, or grow out their forelocks, or follow any of the other laws of Leviticus.
When you quote Leviticus as god’s law and say they are rules we must follow because they are what god or Jesus wants us to do, what you are really saying, as a Christian, is that Christ’s sacrifice on the cross was invalid. He died in vain because you believe we are still beholden to the old laws. That is what you, a self-professed good Christian, are saying to your god and his son, that their plan for your salvation wasn’t good enough for you.
So maybe actually read the thing before you start quoting it, because the implications of your actions go a lot deeper than you think.
This is a theological point that doesn’t come up often enough.
Blatant racism (apartheid) and misogyny
I think this is unintentional racism due to poor projection of design. The left side of the image is supposed to portray how a Denny’s ad would have looked 60 years ago, due to them celebrating their 60 year anniversary.
Most men you see in ads from the 1950s era (Denny’s was founded in 1953), are clothed in business uniform attire with the larger glasses and combed over hair. Everyone read newspapers, it was the main source of news, as found in the mans hand. The child has short hair, and looks over-enthusiastic about his dessert, another factor found in ads from that era. Also, the logo at the bottom on the left-hand side is their old logo.
Now on the right-side, they take a more modern, 2013-style ad choice to show today. The man is more casual, as in most ads today. He doesn’t have a particular hair style. The child is dressed more comfortably (not necessarily, but in my opinion, that would be more confortable) with medium-length hair, something you would have never seen in ads. also, modern logo at the bottom. and I think it’s good that the modern family isn’t white.
White family on the left, not racist, factual, in my opinion as a graphic designer. If I’m getting from this image what the designer was trying to portray, I see what they were trying to do, but they could have done a better job.
Don’t call racism on everything you see, until you know what they’re trying to show.
Fucking tumblr ladies and gentlemen.
is it wrong that i completely understood the ad’s motive at first glance - the racial makeup of the typical american has completely changed and i thought it was really poignant actually that it shows fathers taking their sons out for dinner instead of showing the traditional role of women with children
i thought the point was just then and now and two dads smiling at their kids enjoying some fucking dennys.
tumblr needs to learn it’s also damaging to fling around accusations of racism ignorantly. don’t be so quick to say things are racist. I’m a poc and I liked it that they used a non-white father and son duo in the second picture- I mean the whole going to a diner and drinking a milkshake has a very American association- suggesting that the modern, far more diverse country today is just as 100% American as the 1950s old school Americana.
gunna have to call bullshit on this
ive never seen anyone actually calculate just how many spiders spiders georg would have to eat per day in order to affect global spider eating statistics to the extent that he does
it adds so much to be able to envision exactly the speed at which he consumes them
The estimated world population is currently 7 BILLION people. If each person were to eat 3 spiders a year, then 21 Billion spiders would have to be consumed on an annual basis.
While your estimation of Spider Georg’s spider intake-per-day is good with that math, you forgot to include some factors, leaving your conclusion sorely lacking!
The population of Cambodia is 15,205,539. In that country, fried spiders are often sold at street vendors! thus, those millions of people are actually eating 1-5 spiders per week, or 52-270 spiders a year leaving the average spider intake in that country at ~ 4,896,183,558 spiders per year. (I’m giving leeway for people who don’t care for spiders, and also for people who love eating spiders, + tourists who want to try crazy shit when they visit)
The people of Piaroa in Venezuela also eat spiders on occasion - Maybe once a week, likely less. So…14,000 people, A spider every two weeks, 7,000 spiders a week...365,190 spiders a year.
This has already reduced Spiders Georg’s spider intake to 44,990,277 a day!
That is indeed some interesting information you’ve provided.
However! Those statistics are irrelevant to truly defining the scope of spider consumption throughout the world.
You see, during the normal storage of food, like grains and nuts, we have a hard time keeping vermin and insects out of those stores. Those creatures live on the plants, after all, and are also collected during harvesting.
The United State’s FDA enacted regulations to make sure the insect and vermin content within various foods was as low as possible for the public’s safety, but also reasonable for the companies to abide by.
Here are some examples f
Pizza sauce: 30 Fly Eggs Per 100 Grams
Chocolate: 60 Or More Insect Parts Per 100 grams
Peanut Butter: 1 Or More Rodent Hairs Per 100 Grams
Frozen Berries: 60 Percent Can Contain Mold
Cranberry Sauce: 15 Percent Can Contain Mold
Potato Chips: 6 percent Rot Pieces By Weight
Pasta: 225 Insect Fragments In 6 Or More Samples
Popcorn: 20 Or More Gnawed (by rodents) Grains Per Pound
Paprika: 75 Insect Fragments Per 25 Grams
Wheat: 9 Miligrams Or More Of Rodent Pellets (poop) Per Kilogram
I’d like to direct the Jury’s attention to the fact that there are actually quite a few insects that people eat without realizing, contained within their normal food supplies.
Since ‘Insects’ in this case could mean anything from grasshoppers to ants, Spiders are also included.
In the end, the average person inadvertently consumes about a pound of insects each year (and remember, individual bugs are quite light), leaving the average spider consumption PER HUMAN at between 10 and 70 spiders per year.
As you pointed out in your statistics, people around the world have different customs and viewpoints when it comes to insect and arachnid consumption.
Even if he did consume 10,000 spiders per year, Spider Georg is still only dining on 27 spiders per day - perhaps an enthusiast, but not strange in the scope of the world.
I rest my case.
this post is more important to me than anything in my life right now.
