Oh, Twitter

Man, it’s been a while since I’ve seen something that made me just go “HAH” out loud. I love it.

Darwin Day

It’s Darwin Day today!

So of course Wolfram Alpha makes a cool thing.

My name as species:

  • Mammal: MARMOTA CAUDATA
  • Bird: ALAEMON ALAUDIPES
  • Reptile: ANOLIS CALIMAE
  • Amphibian: DENDROBATES CLAUDIAE
  • Insect: CHRYSENDETON CLAUDIALIS
  • Arachnid: AMAUROPELMA CLAUDIE
  • Crustacean: ANTILLESIA CARDISOMAE
  • Fish: APHYOLEBIAS CLAUDIAE

Amphibian is my fave.

Sorry, today I gave a 90-minute calculus midterm at 6:00 and then spent like three hours grading it afterwards. Fun times.

YOOOOOOO

So remember sometime last year when I made that compilation of my favorite Vines?

I made a new one.

It’s basically the same as the old one, but I added a few new Vines that I’ve discovered since then and took out a few that I no longer really laughed at.

SO HERE YOU GO AS IF YOU ACTUALLY GIVE A PISS

10 Year Challenge

“But moooom, all the cool kids are doing it!”

Unlike about 10% of the fads on the internet, this one isn’t deadly. You just post a pic of yourself from 2009 and compare it to one from the current year (2019, obviously).

GO!

01-13-2019

One thing to note about these comparison pictures (for myself and probably most people doing it) is that the first picture was probably taken with an actual camera, while the second was taken with a phone camera. So that might affect things.

ANYWAY.

Observations:

  • My poor industrial piercing is gone.
  • I am legitimately more tan than I was in 2009. 2009 me thought walking was a stupid waste of time and only really went outside to catch the bus to campus. 2019 me spends 4+ hours per day walking outside.
  • I think I look better with bangs, but those goddamn bangs were so hard to deal with.
  • No gray hair yet! I’m shocked.
  • My facial structure looks a little bit different in every aspect except for my lips. My lips look exactly the same.
  • Mo’ glasses, mo’ problems.
  • My eyes look waaaay darker in the 2019 version, though I’m pretty sure that’s mostly lighting. My eye color does vary from day to day and they’re rarely as green as they are in the 2009 version, but they’re definitely not that 2019 dark in all lighting.

WOO!

Talcum in the Middle

(THERE NATE I USED IT AS A BLOG TITLE, HAPPY NOW? Haha.)

I think I’m going to get off of Facebook for a while. It’s all cringy drama and people announcing pregnancies anymore. And I don’t give a crap about either of these things.

Marbles

Hahaha, oh my god, I laughed way harder at this than I probably should have.

Jenna Marbles is awesome.

A Thing I’d Never Thought I’d Say:

I prefer Twitter to Facebook now.

Reasons:

  • Of the 40-ish friends I have on Facebook, most of them are either using Facebook to be passive-aggressive to another person or are pooping out kids and posting exclusively about pooping out kids (or, in one bizarre case, passively-aggressively pooping out kids). I have no interest in any of those things.
  • On Twitter, I follow The Royal Society, Calgary Transit, a few pedestrian-promoting groups, some of the AH guys, Stats Canada, other stats groups/dudes, and a fair number of baseball pages/people. So y’know, things that are interesting and drama-free.

(Except for baseball. Sometimes baseball has all the drama.)

So yeah.

OLD MEMES DIE HARD

So I’ve been having a really shitty time as of late, but this video brought me much joy. What’s better than one meme? An older meme. What’s better than an older meme? A new meme and an older meme mashed together in glory.

(Sorry, I’m boring.)

What in the absolute hell, YouTube

Appropriate at 4 AM? No.

And yes.

END

Reeeeeeeeeally not having a good month, y’all.

Not good at all.

So I’m going to bring this back, ‘cause I need its hilarity to keep from jumping off the balcony.

 

UGH

Stress = to the max. So here are some YouTube videos that got me laughing.

The end.

Steamed Hams

I love the internet. I love when the internet takes a thing and makes a meme out of it.

Example: the “steamed hams” scene from an old episode of The Simpsons (“22 Short Films about Springfield,” 1996). Observe the original clip:

 

And memed…

 

“Steamed Hams but There’s a Different Animator Every 13 Seconds”

 

“Steamed Hams but Chalmers is Obsessively Investigative”

 

And this freaking masterpiece of the internet, “Steamed Hams Inc.” Seriously, it’s so good. Watch it. It will change your life. I love the creativity of humans.

Thanks, Weebl.

This thing is like 800 years old. Explain to me why I couldn’t get it out of my head today.

I am sleep deprived and this is hysterical

The sleep deprivation and the hilarity of this Vine may or may not be related.

There have been a lot of these kinds of posts lately, sorry.

More 5 AM madness

Sock, sock, sock, sock, sock, sock, sock, sock

S H O E S ! !

Vine Compilation!1!1!1!!!!!

Hello.

So watching Vine compilations has been a big thing for me over the past few months, ‘cause I miss Vine and there are a lot of compilations on YouTube.

But I’ve never seen a compilation that had all my favorites and none of the ones I didn’t find funny, so I made my own.

Because that’s what I do instead of working sometimes.

Enjoy.

[Edit: I made a new one that has more favorites, so that’s what I’m linking to here]

 

NumaNuma

GUYS.

It has been THIRTEEN YEARS TO THE DAY since Numa Numa Dance.

According to Wiki, the video was first posted to Newgrounds on December 6, 2004.

Doesn’t 2004 sound FOREVER ago? I was still in freaking high school.

The internet was a simpler time then.

Came for the Meme, Stayed for the Scream

Haha, oh my god.

Just…just give it a few minutes.

Okay, first of all, I had no idea “electric-country-pop” was a genre the human race was capable of.

Second of all, even the first set of screams sound legit; it’s only that one at 2:38 that makes me unable to take this seriously. Or makes me take this too seriously, one of the two.

Edit 1: I WOKE UP WITH THIS STUCK IN MY HEAD WHY
Nothing is better at 7:45 AM than “AAAAAAAAEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAEAAAAAAAEAAAAAAAAA!” It represents how I feel at that time of the morning, at least.

Edit 2: Wow.

Thumbs go up, thumbs go down, I’M THE STRONGEST MAN IN TOWN

Sometimes I feel very sad.

Then I remember that this video exists and I feel infinitely better.

REEEEEEEE

Have I ever posted this on here? I found this like 400 years ago and I re-found it tonight. It’s probably the lack of sleep, but I was laughing super hard at it.
