i saw this on facebook and like

And also, I just want to point out how ridiculous tumblr drama is, it’s not something that could exist anywhere else. Like imagine if you went on Facebook and saw someone posted kin drama. Imagine if you went to school one day and people were having a fight over fandom shit. Can you picture any of this pointless shit happening anywhere but this trash heap of a site? How do some of you function irl honestly it’s beyond me.

Saw this on Facebook. I love their names. Hope this makes you smile! :)

That is extremely unusual, and I love the names they chose.

Dairy cattle often undergo treatment with various hormones to induce ovulation at the correct time for AI, so it’s possible she was accidentally overstimulated. She did well carrying four calves to term.

Unfortunately three of these calves are male, which means the heifer is likely to be a freemartin and consequently infertile, so they will probably not have long and productive lives on a dairy farm.

weird forgotten tumblr things

- don’t hug me i’m scared fandom with the humanoid notebook and clock
- fluffy chicken day
- those blue pictures that said ‘reblog if you’re in the ______ fandom!’
- all the tumblr island, tumblr university, etc. plans that eventually led to the planning of a tumblr convention which is what gave us the beautiful shitshow that was dashcon. the dashcon ballpit was overall tumblr’s best meme in my time on here imo, second only to sonic for real justice
- tumblr trick or treating on halloween¿?
- TUMBLR PROM
- everyone remembers mishapocalypse but remember the all-out war that went down a year later when people couldn’t decide if there should be another one?? that was honestly almost as scary as the actual mishapocalypse
- speaking of misha collins, when he posted his phone number online and this entire website collectively lost its shit. everyone had to post their text convos w/ misha
- FRANCIEUM VS FORFUTUREFERENCEONLY
- “the only adult supervision we have on tumblr is john green” (yikes)
- the time everyone was gonna purposely not post anything the sunday after the guy who played uncle vernon in the harry potter movies died because of the quote “no post on sundays” but then everyone like……forgot and posted stuff anyway
- the tumblr version of some nights by fun
- moreos guy
- when the 50th anniversary of doctor who fell on the same day as some one direction thing and everyone got really offended at this facebook post someone had screenshotted that said like “1d will be around way longer than ur shitty alien tv show” lmao
- “swiggity swag, what’s in the bag”
- when yahoo was buying tumblr and everyone was flipping shit and making posts saying shit like “yahoo better not go ToO fAR!!! they have an army, but we have a hulk!!!” honestly if i was yahoo and considering buying a website for more than a million dollars and then saw that that was what the userbase was like i would have backed the fuck out of that business deal
- those “men of tumblr” posts, you know the ones i mean
- when everyone hated miranda cosgrove?? was there a reason behind that or,,
- back in 2013 everyone was planning to do this “tumblr day” on march 5th where you were supposed to write a big t on your hand and then if you saw anyone else with it you were supposed to “hug and exchange urls” lmao. im pretty sure no one actually did this but if that doesn’t describe the general social climate of tumblr back then idk what does

Even if you called 6 months later at 3 am, I’d still answer; I’ll always care.

Reasons an FP/anyone may not have replied to you yet

I know that a lot of us with BPD- and other disorders such as anxiety, DPD, paranoia etc- can get really worried when those we care about don’t reply- or anyone! We worry they hate us, are angry, are leaving us, are hurt. So, here’s a list of possible reasons why they may not be replying that aren’t those! 

  • They’re asleep. This is kinda subjective to the time they’re in, but this included naps! Sometimes people fall asleep suddenly, or fall asleep before your reply
  • They’re busy. They made need to focus on something, or not be allowed on their phone. Or, they want to save their reply to you for when they can put their full attention on you and give a proper reply
  • They’re unsure how to reply yet. sometimes people need time to think of how to reply, and want to give a proper one
  • They don’t feel like talking to anyone right now. It’s not that they don’t wanna talk to you specifically- they may just be socially drained or want to focus on themselves! 
  • They’re not in a mental place where they can reply to you. This includes perhaps they’re dissociating, or can’t think straight to reply 
  • Their phone is dead. Plain and simple
  • Their wifi dropped. Same again 
  • They’re taking pleasure time. Video games, reading anything. Sometimes people need time to relax- it doesn’t mean that they don’t enjoy talking to you, they just wanna fully immerse themselves in their activity.
  • They’re interacting with someone/in a situation where it’s not appropriate to use their phone. Maybe at dinner, church, a lesson, anything
  • They suddenly have to deal with something urgent.
  • They forgot. I know this one is scary/hurts- but it doesn’t mean you’re not important to them! Maybe they saw your message whilst busy, thought they need to reply later, then forgot. Some people also have memory issues that mean they forget to reply to things.
  • They’re not logged into what you talk in. This goes esp for facebook/tumblr
  • They havn’t got your message. This can be for lots of reasons! Bad connection, app is broken, phone is slow, anything like that
i love you. [delete]
did you ever love me? [delete]
was i just somebody you used to make you feel better about yourself? [delete]
well, here’s me making you feel better about yourself: you’re the most amazing person i’ve ever met in my life. nobody could ever take your place. i love you more than words can say. [delete]
yeah, you fucked me over, but i still think you’re great. i don’t know if that says more about me or more about you. i don’t know if that makes me pathetic or kindhearted. i always saw the good in you. [delete]
i know i didn’t always act like you were important to me. i’m sorry for that. i’m sorry i didn’t shove it down your throat every day, tell you that you were worth everything to me; i’m sorry i held your mistakes against you so much. i’m sorry i didn’t realize you were struggling too. [delete]
you’re still the first person i want to tell anything to. like did you hear who our ex-friend is hooking up with? did you see that facebook status? did you see that car crash on route 29? did you know there are more microbes on your body than people on earth? [delete]
i know i said leave but i really meant i’ll be waiting for you to come back. my friends say it’s not permanent; i can go back whenever i want to. i know i can but i left for a reason. it hurts so much that you don’t want me. [delete]
i keep thinking i can convince you to choose me. who wouldn’t want someone who loves them this much? i want to shower you with compliments just so you realize what you lost. [delete]
but i also want you to know you’re special. i want you to know somebody loves you, even if they’re far away. i want you to know how you lifted my spirits by just existing. [delete]
but then i think: where’s my “i love you”? where’s my “thank you for existing”? where’s my “you’re special” and “i appreciate you” and “you’re important to me”? why am i always the one trying to make this work? why don’t you value me? [delete]
you told me you’d always answer my text messages, probably even in your sleep. i can’t believe someone so goddamn beautiful could do such ugly things. [delete]

“My father left us when I was two. The last time I saw him was my fifth grade graduation. I do know he’s alive because I found him on Facebook. Apparently he drinks a lot and goes to left wing protests. I’m not bothered by it. I think it’s funny. Sometimes I hope he comes looking for me just so I can turn him away. I did find an old journal recently from my childhood. It had The Powerpuff Girls on the cover. Inside were some pages where I had been practicing cursive, and I had written things like: ‘Why don’t you call me?’ and ‘Why don’t you like me?’ So it clearly bothered me then. Even though I don’t care now, maybe it’s impacted me in a way that I’ve yet to discover.”

The people for Tony Stark?

Okay, I was talking with my sister about how awesome it would be if in the wake of Civil War, that the people/public in North and South America, Europe, Asia, Africa, EVERYWHERE! Just showed a subtle but strong solidarity for Tony Stark/Iron Man using what Tony is super into. Technology.
Like, picture this:
Hashtags; Tony is trending for MONTHS.
“I stand for the man that stands with me👏🏽 #IStandWithTonyStark #CaptainAmericaWho?”
“#IronMan with a #ironwill for the people and what’s right!”

People view the footage of the airport battle from the grainy cameras posted all over like crazy because someone uploaded it to YouTube. It’s not the best but you can see how team cap just didn’t pull any punches and how Tony had tried to talk despite not hearing what he’s saying. He looks broke , trying to hold everything together.
People lose their minds when they see Cap’s team charge first and when Rhodes falls from the sky and Tony dives after him.
The comments light up and bbbuuuuurrrrrnnn team cap.
“lmao what a fucking joke. tony is trying to talk to him and do you see this guys body language? he’s not hearing anything. Dude wouldn’t even listen to a team member let alone 117 countries”
“LOOK AT THEM, THEY LET THE HYDRA WITCH BITCH ON THEIR TEAM IN NOTHING FLAT BUT GOD FORBID THEY LISTEN TO IRON MAN”
“Yooo, legit they just kept flying after seeing War Machine go down like that? I saw Falcon turn around but I don’t care man, you’ve LIVED and FOUGHT with this dude and he’s obviously seriously hurt and you just keep flying away in the jet you stole??? Cowards. Pathetic.”
“They really look like they’re trying to kill the real heroes. Fuck I’m glad we have Iron Man and Co. with us”

People organize a day online; through tumblr, twitter, insta, Facebook, any way to get the news out that you wear red on this day and you just subtly grab a pen and draw a circle in your palm for a repulsor just like Iron Man’s. And everything blows up that way. News networks talk about it and talk show hosts, the paper has articles on how the public is showing an unimaginable support for Iron Man and the rest of his team that stayed and fought for them and continue to fight for them during the revision of the Accords.

And I want it to be on the news so much that team cap has to watch it and has to know how much everyone loves Tony and what he’s doing and how he went about it. And how he is an actual hero who did his best and how much the public believe and appreciate him.

Flute news - Circular flute

So I just saw a photo on facebook of what I thought to be something done on photoshop…

What  you are seeing is in fact real… four flutists playing a circular flute with a woman dancing in the middle… That was the rehearsal and this is the performance:

Looks like some kind of Pagan ritual
and here are what the flutes look like:

So now the question is:  :) What are your thoughts?

Active example of how “exposure” from reposting doesn’t really work.
Sure, it’s 200 more likes than I would have otherwise, but the numbers hurt: of the 17 THOUSAND people who interacted with the artwork (and more who simply viewed it), only 200 of those were invested enough to check out the original artist. 1.17%. One percent.
I even have the piece in question on my FB page, and it has 25 likes and no shares. Amazing

So no, reposting does not help expose the artist. It’s not ‘free advertising’. Reposting steals the fire that artists need - people follow reposters for the amazing art they share, but not the artists for the amazing art they create. Numbers absolutely matter, especially in a business sense. This is my job, and I need MY posts out there so people know I am also a real, living person, and not a neat piece of art they saw on facebook once.

can we all stop vilifying social media? yes, i’m a millennial, and yes, i’m on social media a lot. i like talking to my sister, five thousand miles away, on facebook, and i’ve got about 300 dog videos saved that i tag my friends in so they can smile. yes, i take selfies, and yes, i love posting them on tumblr and instagram because i love myself and i find no shame in sharing that. yes, i’m on twitter a lot, because i like seeing that people around the world think and say and feel. not only their 4am toilet thoughts, but that of the world around them. i like social media because it connects me and it’s closely related to my job industry.

and guess what? even if i didn’t have a reason for being on social media a lot, even if i just liked it for the sake of liking it, why the hell does that give anyone the right to say that i’m dumb or uncivilized or immature?

SKAM S04E07 Clip 4 - Someone is attacking us

GIRL: …they used 300 000 on a bus and now they’ve split up.

GIRL2: I totally agree. Like, if the whole school saw my chats, I would fucking die. I got on Facebook and went through my chats to see how much shit I’ve talked about people and there’s so fucking much!

GIRL3: You have to be extremely careful about what you write.

VILDE: How many times have you called her now?

INGRID: Probably a hundred.

VILDE: You’ll use up your data.

INGRID: No, I have this data plan where everything is included.

EVA: Is she answering?

INGRID: No.

GIRL4: Is she active on Facebook?

VILDE: She was earlier, but not now.

GIRL4: Because you sent her a message on Facebook, didn’t you?

INGRID: Yeah, lots. She hasn’t seen..

VILDE: She hasn’t seen them.

INGRID: No.

GIRL4: Have you tried calling her parents?

INGRID: No, I haven’t, but maybe I should go over to her place later today.

GIRL4: That’s a good idea.

SANA: What’s up?

INGRID: We can’t get ahold of Sara.

VILDE: She’s just embarrassed people have seen all the shit she’s written about people.

EVA: Are we really sure it actually was Sara writing all those things?

GIRL4: I don’t know about everything, but that thing about how she hoped Iselinn would switch schools.. She wrote that to me too.

GIRL5: And she wrote the thing about Olivia being pedo to me too.

GIRL4: Did someone hack our account?

EVA: Fuck, how creepy.

VILDE: It’s creepy that it has been published, but I think it’s even more creepy that we have a bus boss who has written so much whit about people on the bus.

EVA: I’m ready to quit the bus. I can’t be bothered with this drama.

INGRID: No, hello girls, it’s so fucking important that we don’t let this ruin us. There’s someone attacking us and then we have to stand together as one bus.

GIRL4: Yeah, but it’s really serious to share those chats. Isn’t that illegal or something?

[TALKING OVER EACH OTHER]

ISAK: Is there any drama?

SANA: Yeah..

ISAK: I heard something about Sara posting some shit about the girls on Instagram.

SANA: Yeah, it’s.. Believe me, you don’t want to know.

ISAK: That I don’t fucking want. But are you ready for the mock exam?

SANA: Yeah! You too?

ISAK: I’m Stephen Hawking on Red Bull are you crazy? Yeah! Talk to you later.

[DELETE YOUR ACCOUNT FOR GOOD]

WHATEVER terms.

I don’t know if it’s just me, but for a long time I had the “whatever terms”, as I like to call them, completely mixed up. Instead of saying “doesn’t matter to me!” I’d pretty much respond with “IDGAF” (sorry friends ^^). So let’s throw away that “어쩌라고” and get a little more nuanced with our responses. (Heads up! Sth = Something)
Let’s take a look -

상관 없다 – To not matter (I don’t mind)

A: 한식 먹을래, 중식 먹을래? / Do you want Korean or Chinese food?
B: 상관 없어, 난 둘다 좋아. / Doesn’t matter, I’m good with both.

A: 이 유리병 뚜껑을 잃어버렸는데 어떡하죠? / I lost the top to this glass bottle, what should I do?
B: 상관 없어요. 어짜피 버리려고 놔둔거에요. / It doesn’t matter, I put it there to throw away anyways.

아무렇지 않다 – To not be affected

A: 사람들이 뒤에서 너 얘기 하는거 들었어? 나라면 너무 화날거 같은데. / Did you hear what people were saying behind your back? I’d be pissed if it were me.
B: 그냥 할일 없는 사람들이라고 생각하면, 아무렇지 않더라고. / If I just think of it as people with nothing better to do, then it doesn’t affect me.

신경 안 쓰다 – To not care / not think about sth

A: 페이스북 보니까 네 전남친 새여자친구 생겼더라. / I saw on Facebook that your ex-boyfriend got a new girlfriend?
B: 아..몰라,  이제 신경 안 쓸래. / Ah.. I don’t want to care about it anymore.

A: 출근할때 너무 복장에 신경 안 쓰는거 아니에요? / Aren’t you being careless about what you wear when you come into the office?
B: 죄송합니다, 매니져님. / I’m sorry, (manager.)

관심 없다 – To have no interest in sth

A: 페이스북 보니까 네 전남친 새여자친구 생겼더라. / I saw on Facebook that your ex-boyfriend got a new girlfriend.
B: 아 그래? 근데 노관심 (관심 없어). / Yeah? I really don’t care (IDGAF).

A: 톰씨도 좋아하는 걸그룹 있어요? / Tom do you have a favorite (k-pop) girl group?
B: 아.. 다들 TWICE 좋아하던데, 저는 그런데 관심이 없어서요.. / Ah.. it seems like everyone likes TWICE, but I have no interest in those groups.

As always these aren’t word-for-word translated and are much more nuanced, therefore each translations wording varies a bit. (FUN FACT: If you replace every response with 어쩌라고 you get the worst possible response.) I hope these examples help you out, and more posts coming soon!

saw this on facebook but with a not so much hockey concept so I had to make my own version
