remember when u were like 11 and the only thing u wanted was a lava lamp
did you know that there are multiple instances of scientists taking pettiness to another level by naming species after their rivals
there is a species of mussel literally called ‘Fat Warburg’ just because some early 1900s dude thought this would be an appropriate way to insult his nemesis
Carl Linnaeus was not above jabs at personal enemies by naming certain species for them. For example, he named a weed that produces a nasty smelling fluid, Siegesbeckia, because he had a grudge against German botanist Johann Siegesbeck.
did you send this to yourself
I bought my friend an elephant for their room.
They said “Thank you.”
I said “Don’t mention it.”
Is there a joke here that 15 thousand people get but I don’t?
no fucking way
when i was in year 5, i did a speech on clumsiness for my school’s public speaking contest and to be clever, i tripped on my way to the stage dropping my note cards all over the place, but then i pulled the real ones out of my pocket saying ‘if you’re going to be clumsy, it pays to be prepared!’
everyone lost their shit and i got second place
If you got second place who got first… Did they talk about fire safety and burn the stage down or something
You can’t force a meme, but you shouldn’t keep it hidden away from the world, either.
