what happened in roughly 1870 though
why was there temporary internet
with a few people searching for pokemon?

It’s a search of Google books, but the question still stands, what the Fuck happened in 1870

I CAN ANSWER THIS!!
In the Cornish dialect of English, Pokemon meant ‘clumsy’ (pure coincidence).
In the mid 1800s there was a surge of writing about the Cornish language and dialect in an attempt to preserve them with glossaries and dictionaries being written. I wrote about it HERE.


Information analytics FTW!

"tumblr is great except for…"

the neo-nazis? the violent misogynists? the white supremacists? the glorification of mass murderers? the blogs committed to telling marginalized people to commit suicide? the pedophiles?

"…the sjws."

ah, yes, clearly it’s the marginalized people trying to get rights. they are the problem here. because they’re occasionally overzealous. or something.

right, because having a history of harassing, threatening, and major hypocrisy in regards to their “cause” (which is just another bullshit way of saying a reason to be angry and self righteous) is clearly a display of being occasionally over zealous.

and like sjws actually help anyone by developing a gigantic victim complex

you can overplay other “bad things” about tumblr and underplay SJW bullshit all you want, you’re really just proving a point that this site is dead

a fairy tale where the princess stuck in the tower has nothing better to do so she just works out all the time and gets ripped and kills the dragon herself

Bad books on writing tell you to ‘WRITE WHAT YOU KNOW’, a solemn and totally false adage that is the reason there exist so many mediocre novels about English professors contemplating adultery.

burn everything with fire. then force el james to swallow the ashes
