Heh, thanks. Don’t worry, this won’t keep me down for long. Just need a break, is all. Anyways, for the rest of you, this is the last message I’ll be responding to before I take my break. Once you see this, I’ll be off of Tumblr for a while. Not sure how long. It probably won’t mean much difference to my followers considering how little I post anyways, but hey.
Err, sorry, but if that was a reference, it flew right over my head. And really, it’s less the Tumblr folk and more me realizing that this site isn’t helping me. I’ve kinda had some anger issues in my past. It was bad enough that I was getting into at least three fights a year when I was in middle and high school.
I’ve been trying to keep my anger in check after that, so me losing my temper at something like that made me realize that I need to leave the site for a time and get my head back together. Don’t mind me, folks. Just move along and keep scrolling in your dashes.
“Joking around” is kinda hard to say with Tumblr. Anon hate is pretty damn common on this site (another reason why I’m tired of this place). I mean, you ever seen how Tumblr reacts whenever somebody posts that they don’t like Johnlock? It’s like punching a beehive, you’ll suddenly get a whole swarm of angry people coming into your ask box to attack you for one thing. I did get three other messages (well, two and one duplicate) that were less than kind from others. At least they weren’t on anon.
But seriously, I guess I really do need a break from Tumblr. I mean, I got angry at something like that. Pretty silly of me. Just shows that I need some time to just calm down and collect my thoughts.
Besides, I’ve got this huge backlog of games to beat anyway. A break could do me some good with that, as well as with studying for that final exam I have on Thursday. We all know how bad Tumblr is when it comes to procrastination. I’m sure I’ll come back eventually though. As much as I hate to admit it, this site is still good for finding some interesting fanarts, plus I still have an RP group to work with. Wouldn’t want to just abandon them to the winds because some people got angry at me. But yeah, enough of my rambling.
Perhaps I am. Then again, there are some people who believe that cutting a bar of chocolate a certain way can violate the law of conservation of mass, or putting your PIN Number in backwards can alert the police to your imminent danger. I just get really tired of all of this, ya know? I know I’m not the only one who’s fed up with Tumblr’s beliefs.
I mean, I’ve seen a lot of posts flying about that includes people posting insane beliefs and other people debunking those beliefs. As well as more passive-aggressive posts.
Look, what I’m trying to say is, I just want people to shut up with these kinds of things. There’s no real reason to post anything that constitutes false information. The joke simply was not funny the way it was presented. I guess I just kinda got fed up with all of it and unleashed my rage on the wrong post.
Look, if the OP ever reads this, sorry. It’s just tiring to see all of this. And you know what they say about pent-up emotions. They always come back to haunt you.
I guess I just need a break from Tumblr or something. This site isn’t really helping me out much, plus I don’t reblog a lot of things anyway. Kinda lack much of a reason to stick around.
Maybe so, but it’s kinda unnecessary if you ask me. I mean, it’s already pretty obvious how ridiculous that is, and like I said, some people on Tumblr are really fucking gullible. I mean, anybody remember that Infinite Chocolate gif that was floating about a while back? There were quite a few comments posted on that gif that sounded like they believed that thing to be true in seriousness.
I don’t think that one should have to prove a point about how stupid one’s advice sounds like by making an even more stupid post. People already stated how dumb that advice was back when that post was floating around. And there’s always that chance that somebody, somewhere is going to fall for it.
It’s better just to let those things die down. When that advice is dead, people will stop listening to it, and that’s the end of that. If a parody must be done, it should be done in a way that makes it obvious that you shouldn’t do this.
If, for example, that post had a frame showing that such advice doesn’t work, then they eliminate the chance that somebody’s going to fall for it, while showcasing quite obviously that it’s a parody. Personally, I also find it more amusing that way when it showcases that it’s a dumb idea.
I dunno man, I’ve just seen too much shit with Tumblr taking dumb posts seriously and spreading misinformation and lies. You put people’s lives at risk when you do that. Joke or no, Tumblr has proven itself to be gullible, and one should keep that in mind when making parody advice like that. You never know who’s gonna be dumb enough to fall for it.
Ah hah, right. Please, forgive me for assuming that Tumblr would ever give such advice in seriousness when they do stupid shit like fetishize gay people to a creepily obsessive degree, blame everything bad that ever happens on one specific kind of people (straight, white, cis-gendered males) and hold those specific people responsible for what their ancestors did while simultaneously not doing the same thing for any other minority regardless of what their ancestors may have done, the general reverse discrimination in general, and posting stupid shit that some gullible people would believe to be true and actually attempt to do if they were ever in that situation.
Clearly I’m the dumbass here because I don’t believe that Tumblr should spread such ridiculous “advice”, joke or not, because some people can actually fucking fall for this shit and get themselves in a whole lot of trouble for following advice that was intended as a joke. Please, do forgive me, angry anonymous. I am so worried about what a random person on the internet thinks of me who’s too cowardly to actually show his face to me.
Okay, here’s an obvious question: How the fuck does a VCR have the ability to alert the police if you put your tape in the wrong way around? I’m pretty sure a VCR didn’t have the ability to alert the police via that roundabout method. And furthermore, this information is fucking useless to 90% of people even if it were true, because seriously, people use DVDs and Blu-Ray now, not fucking VCRs.
At most, I can see the guy holding you at gunpoint to go, “Why the fuck did you do that?” before beating you over the head or something.
I don’t prescribe to any “past life” theories, but he seems a distinguished enough gentleman.
