Educational Twitter Thread Tells Tale Of Epic Historical Slave Revolt

Writer Michael Harriot dropped some serious history knowledge on Twitter this past Saturday and left us with slightly bigger brains and some serious chills. The Bahamas have been heavily featured in the news following the devastation of Hurricane Dorian, and this Twitter thread gives some powerful background on the history of the storm-ravaged island nation. Michael Harriot's expert storytelling (even when limited to 280 characters) gives serious oomph to an already compelling black history narrative of slaves and ex-slaves sticking it to the man.

Blinking White Guy Memes Are Back, Dumber Than Ever

The seemingly immortal Blinking White Guy reaction memes are pretty damn timeless, but they've seen a huge resurgence this week, particularly on Instagram and in the r/dankmemes subreddit. This time around, the memes are being used to describe the first guy to ever do XYZ. The actions range from something as simple as sleeping to extremely specific meme references. While kind of basic and low-effort, the meme has become extremely popular, and is being twisted and turned into quite the formidable format. As with any meme trend, many people on Reddit are lamenting its popularity, but we definitely welcome most memes that require little to no brain power to understand.

People Are Trolling Twitter With Ridiculous Images Of What Cleopatra Looked Like

We love a good copypasta, and Twitter seriously delivered this week with this history-related meme. The text in question reads "Scientists at Harvard University have created this 3D Model depicting what ancient Egyptian queen Cleopatra may have looked like," and Twitter users have been pairing it with funny 3D images and pics of celebrities. It's a great joke. So great that many people don't realize that it's tongue and cheek, and actually protest the images. We love gullible know-it-alls. They add so much extra humor to memes like this.

Millennials Aren't The Worst Generation When Compared To Historical Disciplinary Records, Says This Twitter Thread

It's a tradition that the older generations have to hate on the younger generations for absolutely any reason they can think of. Doesn't matter what for, because it was just "better back in the day," in their logic. 

Self-described "recovering academic" Jenny Bann pulled up some hilariously enlightening historical records of the behavioral problems exhibited by 18th century male students in Scotland. 

Let's just say they're...less than wholesome and make Millennials look angelic in comparison.
