what happened in roughly 1870 though
why was there temporary internet
with a few people searching for pokemon?
It’s a search of Google books, but the question still stands, what the Fuck happened in 1870
I CAN ANSWER THIS!!
In the Cornish dialect of English, Pokemon meant ‘clumsy’ (pure coincidence).
In the mid 1800s there was a surge of writing about the Cornish language and dialect in an attempt to preserve them with glossaries and dictionaries being written. I wrote about it HERE.
I just love that this post happened to find the ONE HUMAN ON THE INTERNET who had the answer to this question
I did a search of Google Books from that time period a while ago, and it looks like Polemon was also misread by the OCR engine in a few places
and now for the AU outfits: what if Eight had not abandoned the HAT?
Think of this ditz, he would wear it everywhere.
And have hat-measuring contest with other Doctors.
Let’s all take a moment to imagine the faces of his companions had he decided to stick with the hat
Possum: *listening to Big Finish*
Possum: OMG this is non-linear storytelling is so annoying. I get that the story is supposed to be about irregularities in the timeline but this has crossed the line from “a bit wibbly wobbly” into “completely nonsensical”. FFS the musical cues don’t even match up! This is the WORST audio I’ve ever heard!
Possum: *tosses iPod into drawer in extreme irritation*
Ten minutes later …
Possum: … the musical cues don’t even match up …
Possum: *retrieves iPod*
Possum: *examines iPod*
Possum: *takes iPod off shuffle*
Possum: *nonchalantly starts audio again*
So after listening to that person’s beautiful, slowed down version of Murray Gold’s ‘Hello I’m the Doctor’, I decided to do some wibbly-wobbly timey-whimey music stuff of my own. I DON’T KNOW WHAT I JUST DID.
THIS IS SO GORGEOUS I CAN’T
IT’S LIKE GALLIFREY. IT SOUNDS LIKE THE TIME LORDS. IF THE TIME LORDS WERE A SONG AND NOT A TITLE/RANK OF A SPECIES THIS WOULD BE THEM. BEAUTIFUL AND DEEP AND SAD AND DANGEROUS AND POWERFUL AND AT TIMES HEAVENLY.
I’m just laughing madly because that description of the Time Lords is so far off the mark.
If Time Lords were a song they would sound like:
- Babies whining about who has the best toys
- Elitist country club members arguing about the help
- The sound made by a bag of dicks
Oh my god. Yeah, I was about to comment on how inappropriate that description was, but it seems I was beaten to the punch.
Those are the Time Lords.
yeah · Time Lords are basically a parody of the Old Boys' Club · Still they have their moments · time lords · gallifrey · doctor who · doctor who meta · audio ·
Happy Birthday, dear Tony, wherever you are <3
We will always love you!!!

I really need an early Five story with a cricket battle to the death between the Doctor and the Master with the Master wearing this
As a retail worker we’re always working hard to make the customer’s experience better, but what can YOU, the customer, do to help make your own experience better as well?
1.) Be polite when requesting attention.
*I’ve had customers tap me with their carts, clear their throats, and even grab my sleeve to get my attention. **N*O*P*E** There is NO reason to touch me! REFRAIN FROM UNNECESSARY PHYSICAL CONTACT. It’s rude and can startle people. Clearing your throat, tapping your foot or standing behind me quietly until I turn around is also extremely rude. Treat us with some respect, just like you would your friends or family.*
2.) Exercise patience:
*Things are not always available right away. This is just life. Sometimes your size or your fave brand of guacamole is not on the shelf yet. Give us time to go retrieve the object. We’re TRYING to help you! We’re being taken away from important tasks to go retrieve one item out of hundreds, sometimes THOUSANDS, just for you! So please be patient.*
3.) Do not leave when we go to get something for you!
*If the item will take a while to find, we’ll tell you to browse while we go get it. If we say it’ll be just a minute, don’t walk away and wander the store. We’re wasting precious time tracking you down! I’ve wasted 10-15 minutes chasing customers down who just walked away even though it took me 10 seconds to go grab the thing they wanted. That’s a big deal, because that’s basically a whole break you are erasing from my 8 hour shift. *
4.) That said, we’re not doing nothing all day:
*Most retail workers have a set amount of tasks for the day. My schedule at work is JAM-PACKED. Customer assistance and service is NOT my only job! I don’t sit around and wait for customers to ask me something. Usually, when someone needs something, I am breaking away from 4 hours of work (which I have to complete in 3 hours) to assist you. Again, exercise patience and realize we’re not just hanging out all day. We’re working.*
5.) Realize what ‘good customer service’ means.
*Customer service does NOT mean we are required to sit there and take abuse. If you insult, harass, or slander us, we are not required to accept that. The customer is NOT ALWAYS RIGHT. We are here to provide you with guidance and product knowledge, not to be hit on, harassed, or inappropriately touched. Check yourself before you wreck yourself!!*
6.)Realize Retail Workers have bad days too.
We’re working for less than a living wage and receiving abuse from customers daily. Just like you have rough days, so do we! That brings me to…
7.) We’re HUMAN! Not work machines!
All you need to do is to be empathetic and understanding. Had a bad experience? Shrug it off. We do it DAILY. Getting one bad experience at a store you shop at 3 times a week is NOT a big deal. We’re dealing with bad experiences all the time just catering to you. And we get paid like literal shit to do it. So get over your shit.
Quick tip for those who may not know, Kamala Khan’s first name is pronounced ‘Kam-La’ as opposed to ‘Ka-Ma-La’
Might not seem like a big deal, but she’s the first (and thus far only) South Asian superhero to have her own title, and the closest thing some of us have to representation in comics, so I really hope people get her name right :)
Anyway, can’t wait for issue #7!
• SERIES FINALE! It’s been a hard road for the New Warriors, and after fighting the Evolutionaries, and saving the planet once or twice, things reach their shocking conclusion!
• After months of battling, the New Warriors finally find some measure of peace, but will it last?
So let me get this straight. We had a book out there, a fun all ages book, featuring a cast of characters with diverse personalities. A cast of characters that was more than half POC. One of the only cast that actually included a character with disabilities. A book with humor and drama and featured heroes saving the day on a regular basis rather than just fighting each other.
And none of you bought it?
Internet, I’m very disappointed in you.
And as for all the New Warheads out there, all the fans who supported this and told people about it and tried to keep it alive. Well I salute you, and just because the series is gone doesn’t mean these characters have to die. Keep them alive, tell people about them, demand that they appear in future titles. Maybe these heroes will be back one day, maybe they’ll be back in a book that Marvel actually tries to promote (because that was certainly one of the problems) but until then, keep them alive.
This is such bullshit. So mad that this is happening
wait what? over so soon · This is one of the best hero books I've been reading lately · It didn't seem to get much buzz compared to say Ms Marvel · that's a shame · New Warriors · Comics ·
