Foods Being Eaten Improperly

Sometimes we discover things that we didn't realize we were passionate about. For example, there's a right and wrong way to eat a burrito, and no one is allowed to argue otherwise. Sure, there are people out there making cursed foods from lucifer's larder all the time, but to go as far as to eat basic stuff the wrong way? That's asking for a fight.

Tumblr Thread: Strange Horticultural Technique Is Terraria IRL

Look at those guys. This strange horticultural technique called Espalier aims to grow trees in a flat manner, which can end up increasing fruit yield, and maximizing or minimizing sunlight exposure. Tinker around with that sunlight exposure, and you're actually able to capitalize on more fruitful growing seasons. With all the benefits of Espalier having been noted, there's no getting around the fact that it does look like a real life take on the infamous video game, Terraria

Check out some more weird tree lore with this Tumblr thread about how trees are low key monsters.

'Jurassic Park' But With Ferrets Instead Of Dinosaurs

We'd watch it. We also would just like a moment to thank photoshop for existing and for people who decide to create such random works of art. The internet wouldn't be the same without those people. 

For some reason, someone out there has decided to take the Jurassic Park and Jurassic World films and replace the dinosaurs within them with giant ferrets. We're not even mad about it, we'd absolutely watch this new franchise in a heartbeat! 

Giant ferrets just quadrupled our hearts for these adorable fuzzy cuties. Who wouldn't want a park full of giant, possibly ferocious, ferrets to hang with?

The Largest Bullets People Dodged

As not-total-idiots, we spend a lot of time worrying about making the right decision. Sometimes we can thank ourselves for avoiding a bad situation, and sometimes it's totally up to random chance whether we dodge a huge bullet or not. Everyone has a moment in their lives that the think about "man if that had gone just slightly differently I'd be in some serious pain right now." Hindsight is 20/20 and life is just a constant act of dodging massive bullets.

Creepy Warning Signs That Mean Serious Business

We live in a world of unconventional hazards. It might seem cartoonish to think that you might get hit by a propeller, get bit by a plague-carrying rodent or fall down a hidden mineshaft. If those weren't things that could happen, we wouldn't need ominous signs that mean serious business. While sometimes horribly weird and unsettling, these creepy and ominous signs are doing their job.

Fun and Frustration with The English Language

The English language has some confusing peculiarities to it that result in English struggles, but heck, most languages have some phonetic and semantic weirdness winding through them. And English isn't the only strange language. Here's a post defending the English language and how it's not the only weird language out there.

Tumblr Post: House Guest Discovers Secret Staircase

There's something just plain old spooky about discovering a hidden staircase or suspect deadbolt that someone at some point in history went out of their way to hide from everyone. In this case, we're encouraged by the fact that those scratch marks apparently indicate this was likely some tomfoolery. For some more gold from the world of Tumblr, check out this Tumblr post about how spiders rule the world's cranberry bogs.

Total Strangers People Will Never Forget

It's weird that we're surrounded by people all the time, but it's against social convention to have a meaningful relationship with any of them. As rare as it is, people will take time out of their lives to make more of an impact than being just a face in the crowd. Some of these interactions are strange encounters, others are wholesome, but the one thing they all are is memorable.

Inanimate Objects that Look Like Other Stuff

Why do we get joy out of seeing things in other things? Is it because we want to imagine we're surrounded by friendly objects? Is it because it's like a fun visual puzzle? Maybe it's because we're just wired to see faces? It's very apparent in these inanimate objects with a whole lot of personality.

People's "No One is Gonna Believe This" Moments

It's hard when something extremely strange or unlikely happens, because you want to tell someone without sounding like a liar or moron. People are right to be skeptical, but why would anyone lie about walking in on a vested goat eating a roll of toilet paper? You've got moments like these strange events people can't explain logically that make you think, "how am I gonna tell anyone about this?" It's so hard to explain rare and unlikely moments that went against the odds.
