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

"The reason women are turning you down for casual sex seems to be that, for one thing, a lot of you are calling them sluts afterward. Also, a lot of you aren’t bothering to try to be good in bed."

Terri Conley, professor of psychology and women’s studies at the University of Michigan ( link )

There’s a new Spider-Woman variant cover that is, er…. less than good. But(t) we had fun with it, anyway.

Hit the link for the rest (as well as for actual, serious commentary on the cover).

So. Wrote this up today. Later on, professional comic artist Vasilis Lolos decided to comment on the post, then called himself a troll and was obviously just there to start some trouble (a no-no on The Mary Sue comment policy), so I banned him.

Then he signed up for another Disqus account to say some more.

All of his comments are still on the post except for one where he linked off to some adult comic art and this second-account one.

Then he decided to chat me up on Twitter.

So, yeah.
