One of the funniest things to witness is a little kid psyching themselves to run into a splash-pad fountain unit. And just as they are running towards it, the fountain turns off and they don’t get remotely wet.

THIS MAN IS A GIFT
I highly recommend finding this whole segment because this isn’t even the best part of his whole bit on the wage gap.
We all have that one friend…
Wow - can’t believe no one ever figured this out before. Can’t wait to try this for ourselves!
This is just crazy. Anyone else found this?
THE BEGINNINGS OF KAWAII
No, no, you have no idea. It actually IS the beginning of the whole so-called “kawaii culture”. And it started because girls started using mechanical pencils, which provided fine handwriting. After being banished (more precisely, during the 80s), this kind of writing started being used in products like magazines and make-up. And, during this time, icons we usually associate with the whole kawaii industry (like the characters from Sanrio) came to life too.
And what many people don’t realize is that this subculture was born as a way for young girls to express themselves in their own way. And it was also used as something against the adult life and the traditional culture, often seen as dull and boring and oppressive. By embracing cuteness, these young girls (and adult women, after a while) were showing non-conformation with the current standards.
So yep. Kawaii is important, and it all started with cute, simple handwritting a few hearts and cat faces in some girls’ school notebooks <3
NO OK THIS IS SO IMPORTANT!
This is also how the kawaii fashions started! Girls began dressing in cute and off beat styles for themsleves, they were criticized by adult figures telling them “you’ll never find a husband if you dress that way!” to which they began to reply “Good!”
All the japanese subcultures and fashions that evolved out of this became a rebellion to tradition and the starch gender roles and expectations the adults were forcing on the younger generations. As early as the 70s and still to this day you’ll see an emphasis on child-like fashion and themes in more kawaii styles and the dismissal of the male gaze with styles like lolita (a lot of western people assume lolita is somehow sexual due to the name of the fashion, but ask any japanese lolita and they will tell you that men hate the style and find it unattractive which is sometimes a large reason they gravitate towards the style - they can express their femininity and individuality while remaining independent and without the pressure to appeal to men)
Its so so so important to understand the hyper cute and ‘odd’ fashions of Japanese girls carry such a huge message of feminism and reclaiming of their own lives.
so are you telling me that Japan’s punk phase was really the kawaii phase

- i find it pretty fucking inconsiderate that my grandchildren haven’t used time travel to visit me.
- and frankly, i’m a bit offended.
- AM I NOT GOOD ENOUGH FOR YOU GRANDCHILDREN?
- WELL FUCK YOU
- MAYBE I WON’T EVEN HAVE KIDS AND YOU WON’T EXIST
- HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT THAT
what if we have tho
what if we just didn’t know they were our grandkids
what if your best friend has to constantly remind themselves not to call you grandma/grandpa
why did you throw your wedding ring in the ocean
you could have pawned it
you could have had this emotional breakthrough while the pawnshop person was handing you 100 dollar bills
The hottest things I’ve ever been told.

in my senior drama class i had to play gordon ramsay for a film project but we could only film in school so we had to try to find a closed off room to use. the thing is the room wasn’t exactly soundproof and apparently someone heard us and that’s the story of how the vice principal and four freshmen walked in on me wearing a chef’s hat and yelling at my friend because her squid was so raw i could still hear it telling spongebob to fuck off
did you get an A
Benadryl, when taken in high volume, causes hallucinations so vivid they are indistinguishable from reality. - weird, interesting & funny facts
SIGNAL BOOST the hallucinations of benadryl are known to take every fear and of yours and put it into a hallucination like monsters forming from objects, objects trying to grab you, some people have experienced suicide situations (like thinking a beloved one committed suicide), pretty much anything the far deep back of your mind is scared
THERE IS NO PLEASANT HIGH OFF OF BENADRYL and from personal experience I wouldn’t wish it on anyone. Do not try it because its a cheap high, its a terrifying high. I don’t support any form of drug use but I know I can’t stop people so please just be safe!!!
so basically benadryl at high valume is a boggart?
I HAD PROBLEMS WITH THIS FROM TAKING 2 WHEN I WAS USED TO TAKING 1 SIGNAL BOOST THIS
Just don’t do this kids. And adults. Thanks.
Medicine boggarts. Stay safe from them.
Rebloging to signal boost this…both in case anyone considers deliberately trying to get high off these or just to let people know to be careful of how many they take of these in general
Do not do it
You will wind up like those dudes in The Dark Knight who think buying drugs from a man in a Scarecrow mask is a good idea O.O;
Um…I can verify that an OD of benadryl can cause hallucinations. When I was 6, the pharmacy screwed up and gave me twice the dose I should have. I ended up with some weird hallucinations including an elephant in our hallway, my cousins being lost, a scary grandfather clock in my bedroom, me playing with a kid who apparently was dead, and there being marbles on my pillow.
