At this point, I don’t even think Bill Gates could afford to by clues for everyone that needs them.
This is off the Bermuda Triangle, where 16+ ships washed up on a sand bar. The mystery is still unsolved
Actually the mystery of the Bermuda Triangle has been given a scientific explanation: methane vents which have been discovered in that region.
Methane reduces the density of water, causing ships that would normally float, to instead sink.
Methane, when in gas form, messes with the electrical components of aircraft, causing them to fail and sometimes fall right out of the sky.
Methane also causes the water to turn a ghostly greenish color, and the “ghost ships” reported to be seen are simply green reflections of the ships that scatter the bottom of the triangle.
Fucking science, man.
Science explanation is cool and all, but it doesn’t make it any less creepy. D: Haha
Attention rebloggers: You have been PUNK’D.
This is NOT off the Bermuda Triangle. What you are looking at are the Tangalooma Wrecks, fifteen vessels that have been intentionally sunk to make and artificial reef, break wall and diving spot.
It is off Moreton Island which is off the coast of Australia and nowhere near the Triangle.
The science may be nifty (and only one possible scientific theory), but your geography sucks, OP.

No excuses, just do it! Plus, it doesn’t hurt that dried cranberries > Twizzlers.
yeah good fucking luck finding all that healthy shit at these prices, whatever is listed here is way out of date price-wise, i checked while i was at work just to make sure
plus a lot of these are name brand vs. generic which is kinda cheating if you ask me
christ just eat what you can afford if its not going in your body why do you give a shit this photoset makes me so angry
what some people dont get that is a lot of these prices depend on where you live and what season it is
I know for goddamn sure that bag of cranberries costs like $3 near me, and that bag of potatoes is more like $8 on its own
y’all can suck my dick
Reblogging because one day I ma going to take these to Walmart and do an actual item by item comparison, because I know that most of those things cost way much more.
Morning Star grillers=$4 here
16 os Cashews=$10 here.
Strawberries=$5 here. There. that’s $19. I can afford tax on my order and that’s it. I’m out. I know because I actually BUY these things here. WHere the fuck do people come up with these totals? Where do they live? And this is bloody KANSAS. This is not the middle of a big city.
Of course, TWO meals at a fast food place come in at close to $20 here, much less FOUR. I have no idea where these people live.
I want to know where the hell OP shops because I need to go there from now on. Eating healthier IS WAY more expensive here for me. Even if it is off brand. My husband and I know because we try our best to do it anyways on our small checks. And as for Twizzlers… not really good for you BUT did you know you burn more calories chewing the candy (or you’re supposed to) that you get from eating it.
Yeah, these prices are wildly inaccurate, at least in NYC, LA, and nothern Massachusetts.
Maybe they are true in other places though? Places other than tumblr, I mean.
Jesus God, this shit makes me furious. Apart from the fact these prices are wildly inaccurate, stop it with the judging and self righteous bullshit, when it comes to what other people put in their own goddamn mouths. Yes, I think we should be making an effort to feed our children more nutritious foods, but these fucking graphics with the check-marks and xs and the snooty LOOK HOW EASY IT IS TO BE HEALTHY, WHY ARE PEOPLE SO DUMB AND LAZY subtext can fuck off. If I want some damn crinkle fries, I’m gonna eat some damn crinkle fries and that little red X can kiss my ass.
And let us not forget that the generic brand pictured there is from union-busting, retaliating, exploiting, and sexually discriminating Wal-Mart. So if our OP is going to be crusading for the health and well-being of humanity, perhaps s/he should have picked a more socially responsible company to make up prices from, hmm?Source: fitbxtch
Dear TotalFilm - I think misunderstand what “pointless” actually means. That, or you really fail at thematic comprehension, story arc and the Hero’s Journey. I give you a few of these, (Darwin and Newt, maybe) but really? Easy Rider? T2?
I think your gripe is the way these deaths were handled, or the way they were later made irrelevant or silly because of sequels or prequels - which, by the way, is the last thing you should base a list like this off of.Source: totalfilm
Say What Now of the Day: IMDb user (and possible troll?) brian__007 posted a comment yesterday in the message boards for Peter Jackson’s upcoming prequel The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey that accused Lord of the Rings of ripping off Harry Potter. Brian’s rant quickly racked up more than 100 comments and was deleted, but not before the Internets captured a screencap.
Here’s the manifesto in full:
Overall, I like Lord of the Rings. However, I do feel that Tolkien kind of rips off Harry Potter in many ways. There are several parallels, such as elves, dwarfs, wizards, goblins, trolls, magic (especially invisibility), etc. Sauron is referred to as “Dark Lord” just like Voldemort is. There is also the elder white-haired bearded wizard who serves as a mentor, Gandalf, who is reminiscent of Dumbledore. Some of the character names are similar, such as Wormtongue as opposed to Wormtail, too. There is even a gigantic spider (Shelob) at the end of “The Two Towers” that reminds one of Aragog from Chamber of Secrets. I even noticed that the plots of both series begin with the protagonists’ birthday. Now I see that Tolkien, this unoriginal bastard, is coming out with The Hobbit in December. This would be fine, but why didn’t he just write this book first to begin with? I still like Lord of the Rings, though–don’t get me wrong–but I wonder if Tolkien has ever said in interviews whether he borrowed elements from Harry Potter. I’ll be watching the extended DVDs later this week and I think he’s featured on the commentary track, so I look forward to that.
The weekend: suave, sophistica- what do you mean it’s MONDAY?
A lot of people seem grumpy about my latest comic about online gaming as a girl.
I wasn’t implying that girls suck at games. I was implying two things:
- When girls play, often times no one takes them seriously.
- If they screw up, often times the room is filled with lonely dudes who say things…
Regardless of your personal experience, you’re still perpetuating a damaging and sexist stereotype. And that’s still wrong.
I think what some people (including me) are annoyed at is that you say, ”often times the room is filled with lonely dudes who say things… ” when the vast majority of female players I know tend to get the opposite reaction. They’re insulted, derided, threatened and treated just as poorly, if not worse than you are. Not because they’ve made a mistake, which, by your reasoning would make it “fair” (which is still wrong, but that’s another rant), but because they’re women.
I get that you weren’t intentionally trying to insult female players, but I say again - LOL-NOPE.Source: oatmeal
