I love how potato in French is pomme de terre, which pretty much means “earth apple.”
like what stupid frenchman saw this:
and said “zis petite légume looks like a, how you say, APPLE! hmmm… but it grows in ze earth… HON HON HON! MAIS OUI! C’EST UNE POMME DE TERRE!”
j’adore comment ananas se dit pineapple en anglais, ce qui veut littéralement dire “pomme de pin”, genre quel type anglais a vu ça:
et s’est dit : “ow cette étrange big fruit ressemble à une, how do you say, POMME! hmmm… mais plutôt une pomme qui pousse dans les pins… HU HU HU! OH YES, IT’S A PINEAPPLE!”
(z’avez vu, on peut le faire aussi… hon hon hon!)
do you ever think really awful thoughts and suddenly become aware that you are not a good person
this is really selfish but
why can’t mental illness be like any other kind of sickness where you go to hospital and your loved ones come and give you flowers and tell you that they love you and hold your hand and make sure you get better
why doesn’t that happen instead of awkward silences and embarrassing tears and messy bedsheets and a bunch of other stuff no one actually talks about

I can’t find a single selfish thing in that.
IM FUCKIN LOSING MY SHIT
okay so we have chivalry, what’s it called when women do nice things for men because they feel like they have to? what’s the word for that?
aaaaaand nailed it
oh shit son!
wait so. okay. i know i’m not business minded like some but why does yahoo keep buying sites for massive amounts of cash and then abandoning them/shutting them down though
like business-wise how does that work. why would they do that. what do they hope to achieve.
or do they have so much money they have run out of butts to wipe with it so they have to spend it somehow
or do they plan to buy everything and delete everything then laugh onto the nothingness they have wrought
is ‘yahoo buys internet only to destroy internet’ going to be the timely plot of the avengers 2
like i’m seriously curious what’s going on here
yes but i heard tumblr is said to only have enough cash to run for a few months on its own
it needs a company to buy it
oh and quote: [x]
Of course, Yahoo might be able to push the deal through for $1.1 billion or just a little more depending on how the acquisition is structured. If it promises Tumblr’s CEO David Karp he can retain control of the company, provides the right retention bonuses, or won’t force Tumblr to shoehorn in integrations with Yahoo’s other properties, Tumblr may be more receptive.
