Time Traveler Memes Reveal Cursed Results of the Butterfly Effect

Even if you haven't seen 2004's The Butterfly Effect, you're probably aware of the concept in its title. It hails from Edward Lorenz' lauded work with chaos theory. Lorenz first popularized the idea in regards to weather, with the most famous example being that a sudden change in the way a butterfly flaps its wings can cause a tornado weeks later.

In pop culture, however, we associate the butterfly effect with Ashton Kutcher's dumb face and the horrifying consequences of altering the timeline. These memes tend to reflect the latter, and based on their cursed nature, we're, like, 100% sure that time traveling would be a mistake. See for yourself.

History Memes For Scholars Of the Past

Things seem pretty bleak in the present. Between the Covid-19 pandemic and the economic turmoil its caused, and the insane winter storms that have crippled Texas, we're kind of over everything. Gone is the youthful hope that we once had, our plans for the future. Traveling the world and learning about other cultures is also out of the question. If we don't want to think about the sh*tshow we're dealing with, and the future is uncertain, what can we turn to? You got it, the past.

While poring over history tomes and watching educational television shows are both fine and dandy, we prefer to get our fix via memes. And history memes are far from hard to come by. They're all over Reddit and Instagram, dropping some serious knowledge and inspiring some very  hearty chuckles. Though some of these memes may feel like they require a history degree to understand, we're pretty sure even a high school dropout would understand some of the other references. And hey, by scrolling through these memes you might even learn something.

Twitter Users Share Funny & Fascinating Tales From Their Ancestry

If you go back far enough in your genealogy, chances are there are a few interesting stories that are worthy of being shared with family members, friends - or even Twitter. Yesterday, we were hit with the motherlode of ancestral anecdotes on the Bird App, thanks to Jamie Schler.

The tales span centuries, from the Revolutionary War all the way to the misguided war in Vietnam. While they vary in tone (sad, funny, haunting), the stories share a common thread: being cool as hell. We've put a few of our favorite of the Twitter tales in this gallery, but you can take in a lot more fascinating tweets in the thread.
