Girls pose by a jail that recalls the witch trials of 1692 in Salem, Massachusetts. Photo taken in 1945.
I recently learned that the water in Salem was contaminated with the fungus from which LSD is derived and a legitimate theory for the whole thing is that everyone in the town was tripping balls
This might be the greatest thing ive ever seen on the internet
We did a whole massive thing on this in history. I believe the fungus in question is called Ergot and it’s terrifying. It makes your muscles spasm so when they had seizures that was the reason, not because they were possessed. One woman had to be strapped to her bed, she was seizing so bad. And, like ‘theybuildbuildings’ said, it had the same effects as LSD; as soon as you touch it, let alone consume it, it messes with your entire system. The worst thing is, you practically always had a bad trip. Many complained about bugs crawling under their skin or monsters emerging from the shadows to scratch and bite at them until they were screaming. It was a horrendous thing and the worst part is, Ergot is still around. It grows on crops and, if your wheat isn’t properly treated, it can be eaten and you’ll most likely experience the same as the women of Salem.
god i love history
We all know
SHAKESPEARE WROTE THAT ALL THE WORLD’S A STAGE.
HIS THEATER WAS CALLED THE GLOBE.
NOT ONLY WAS THAT LINE PHILOSOPHICAL AND DEEP
BUT IT WAS ALSO A FUCKING PUN
That’s pretty much Shakespeare in a nutshell. Is a line philosophical? Satirical? A pun? A dirty joke? Chances are, it’s all of the above.
there are no chances
it is most definitely all of the above
i love old science fiction because it’s all like “IT’S THE DISTANT YEAR TWO THOUSAND AND THREE AND MAN IS EXPLORING THE DEEP CORNERS OF THE UNIVERSE” like god bless you old sci-fi you had such high hopes for us
if i ever piss you off tell me
i want to be given the chance to make things right
don’t bottle it up because you feel like it’s easier
if it can be avoided just tell me
communication means a lot to me ok and i like everything to be out in the open
if you say your hair has never annoyed you to the point of wanting to shave your head you’re lying
drive thru employees definitely do not get paid enough for this shit they are sick of your nonsense
working at a drive through was the best 5 years of my life
So, real talk for a second guys
If you ever accidentally call 911, DON’T HANG UP. Stay on the line and tell the calltaker that you accidentally dialed. When you hang up, we either have to call you back or send out police which takes up valuable resources and wastes money. A simple “It was an accident” is all we need and everyone goes about their life much better
She looks like it’s her birthday right now she is all ‘OMG I GET TO FIGHT DRACULA WHAT EVEN IS HAPPENING’ :D
my neighbors are making s’mores and i heard one of them shout “HOLY SHIT IT’S ON FIRE” then a s’more smacked onto my window and slowly fell down
Someone felt fabulous
Best use I’ve ever seen of that gif.

do you ever get in those moods where you don’t feel like reading and you don’t feel like being on the internet and you don’t feel like watching a show and you don’t feel like sleeping and you don’t feel like existing in general
I ALWAYS have time for my wifi
What is it, you think, the Brits bring to Hollywood movie?
I genuinely think it’s because Americans think we’re inherently distrustful. They think: “Oh my god, your accent! You’re so sneaky.”
