halloween is fast approaching, and sending screamers has become an increasingly popular trend over the past few years. while some people may enjoy them, they can also trigger anxiety attacks in others.
check the section/category of a video. if it’s under “comedy”, “prank”, “horror”, or something similar, close the tab immediately.
comments are also a giveaway. scroll to the comments section before playing a video. if comments are disabled, there’s a likely chance the video is a screamer. close the tab right away. if you see comments like “whoa, that made me jump!”, close the window! and if it’s impossible to disable comments, look for multiple comments deleted by the creator.
check out the video itself, while it’s paused. if it has very low music (this makes the audience want to turn the volume up, so the scream is louder and scarier), or if it has very small text (which makes you want to go into full screen), that’s a good indication that it’s a screamer. exit out and close the tab!
look at the content of the video. if the clip itself deals with the scary or supernatural, like a film about ghosts, you can’t be certain. be careful, and exit the tab if the content seems triggering. pause the video and forward all the way to the end. If everything is good feel free to watch. if a frame with a scary picture comes up, close the tab immediately.
if the video shows a room or picture, and invites you to “find what’s wrong in the picture”, or “find _____”, close the window immediately!
there’s a new trend going on where videos describing people reacting to screamers are actually screamers themselves. if you suspect this, scroll down and see the comments. if the maker of the video disabled comments to purposely lead viewers to believe the video is genuine, scroll down just enough to see the video time, so you don’t see the video itself. Turn the volume down, just in case it is a screamer, and if the video plays out and there’s no scream, it’s safe to watch.
check the time on the video. if it’s suspiciously short, exit the tab.
look at the related or recommended videos. if any of them fit the above, the video is a screamer.
anyway when a white famous person says the n word it’s not up to the white community to decide whether it’s offensive or not. sure, y'all can have your little feelings about it and whatnot but don’t sit here and tell US how to feel. this annoying ass trend of trying to gaslight us into thing we’re being over dramatic about a word that has demonized us for centuries has to stop because at the end of day white people will never be that word. y'all don’t ever have to worry about being called that in a derogatory way so let black folks determine the severity of the situation and stay tf out of it.
i’m over this Cool Tumblr Trend™ of making your entire internet experience about something you hate. take a deep breath and throw yourself wholeheartedly into something you enjoy. don’t let hate wear you out.
Because, like it or not, we're not all balls of sunshine all the time. We can be pure salt when we want to be.

Hey, Tumblr! We hope the week two prompts for Mental Health Month are treating you well. In the spirit of the theme, posting it for each other, we wanted to celebrate one of the most helpful communities out there: yours. You’ve helped shape Tumblr into an incredible community for support. To take a look into exactly how it’s flourished over the years, we teamed up with Fandometrics (@thefandometrics) to bring you some sweet, sweet data.
How you talk about mental health
Discussion around #mental health has steadily grown year over year since 2013, with a 248% uptick of original posts and reblogs made between 2013 and 2016. In that same time span, original posts and reblogs about#therapy increased 29%. Much of that conversation was rooted in real people sharing real stories. Emotional and honest stories, like how therapy can help you better understand your life, how to say good-bye to the wrong therapist, or the difficulty of making the sometimes daunting decision to begin therapy for the first time.
There has also been a significant rise in people seeking ways to take care of themselves. The self-care movement has seen huge increases in searches (733%) and original posts (567%) between 2013 and 2016. Over the past six months, we’ve seen total engagement (searches, original posts, reblogs, and likes) around the #self-care tag spike with correlations to holidays and events in the news:
240% increase the day after the US Presidential Election
321% in the days following Christmas and Hanukkah
561% in the days leading up to the Inauguration, and
342% in the days following Valentine’s Day.
Anatomy of a post
To get a better understanding of what the public-facing conversations consist of, we looked at the top posts for the #mental health, #positivity, and #self-care tags from the past few years. We noticed a few trends that continued to appear over and over again:
ok so I don’t get this trend of “hating kids”. It’s all over social media, everyone talks about how disgusting and annoying kids are and that kids are their “pet peeves” and so on. Let me talk about this once and for all.
- not to want kids of your own - not wanting a career that involves kids - not wanting to spend lots of time with kids of family/ friends -feeling uncomfortable when being surrounded by kids
It’s NOT OK:
-to be rude or showing that you’re annoyed to kids or parents. It’s hurtful and makes people (big or small) feel bad about themselves and their families - talk to kids like they’re stupid. Kids quickly pick up on things and it messes with their self-esteem -to be a dick and talk shit about kids. Other people might not share your opinion and get hurt -expose kids to inappropriate language/ tv/ etc just because you don’t care
-that you were a kid once too -that kids have done nothing wrong and the hate is growing within yourself -if you work with kids or in a school, being annoyed and rude to them will make them hate school and possibly screw with their future -working with kids in general if you don’t like them -that everyone has to be a kid in order to grow and become an educated adult -that there are old people that are probably annoyed by you and your actions and noises as well -that all kids are different and deserve to be treated as beautiful individuals -that all kids deserve a smile back, a friendly ear and help if they ask you to.
I love how a film that’s about a closeted boy manages to get over 8 million views in two days, was trending number 1 on YouTube and other social media platforms, won multiple awards, and has gotten viewers and critics BEGGING for a feature film, yet homophobes still have the AUDACITY to say “Nobody wants to watch queer romance.”
Ah, yes ! Jack McBrayer, a.k.a. “Does this man even exist ??” Seriously he’s such a nice, happy and smiling person, truely a real life Wander. His voice has such a unique and sweet tone !! Everytime he voices an animated character there’s so much life and happiness brought into them ! And I’d love to see him play Wander again ain’t that right @disneyxd ? I wish you all the love and luck you can have in a year my friend ! Happy birthday !
Over the Garden Wall is a masterpiece cartoon show, recieving a 9.2/10 in IMDb and 4/5 on Hulu and yet so underrated. While many people are talking modern shows like Star vs The Forces of Evil, Steven Universe, OK KO: Let’s Be Heroes, Duck Tales, Adventure Time, and so forth or even talk about older shows that are done like Avatar the Last Airbender, Gravity Falls, Teen Titans, etc.
My favorite ships in the Wander Over Yonder are Black Eye (Peepers x Sylvia) and Skeleton Dance (Wander x Hater). These pairings bring me a lot of joy and happiness, their chemistry and interactions amuse and inspire me so much. Also, that’s rare and pleasant case when my two OTPs support each other making the perfect space family! <3 And, of course, I want to see them developing their relationships in the 3 season! @disneyxd@savewoy
