They can leap 36 feet
As in leap forward 36 feet
They don’t jump 36 feet into the fucking sky do you know how terrifying that would be the human race wouldn’t have survived because we’d have all had heart attacks while still in Africa
I just spent two minutes laughing harder at this than I probably should have.
I am quite literally sobbing and laughing at the same time.
I’d gone so long without a major anxiety attack that I forgot how physically exhausting they are. My whole body feels drained and heavy, but my brain is in paranoid overdrive still and I feel too exhausted and simultaneously anxious to sleep. I am made of sandbags but my brain is just adrenaline.
I don’t like this feeling.
That Mysterious “S” Thing We Used to Draw (by the1janitor)
We used to draw this as kids and it’s always confused me. It still really bothers me tbh.
This is really creepy tbh.
yeah we used to draw these! around 2002. at the time i was told it was like the slipknot logo but now i know it’s totally not. but we did used to get in trouble for drawing them.
we never got in trouble with them. I had them all over my school planner lol.
(We did call them ‘super S’)
There’s this awesome book I read called ‘The People in the Playground’ which concerns the observations of an anthropologist on children’s folklore: the stuff that kids independently teach one another in school yards and playgrounds that has no real connection to adult lore and media. This is a great example of it, as are hand clapping and jump rope verses.
If you can finish the lines “Miss Mary Mack Mack Mack all dressed in black black black…” or ‘Hinky Pinky Ponky, Daddy had a donkey…”or “Miss Suzy had a steamboat…” or “Engine Engine number nine…”
stop and think about where you learned them.
It probably wasn’t from an adult or out of a book or in any formal way. It was from another kid; someone a grade ahead of you or someone’s older sibling or something. Who learned it the same way.
This is CHILD lore. Sometimes a fad will come and go in a single age cohort, sometimes it’ll last for generations. It’s kind of awesome.
Imagine a creepypasta or an SCP based on the mysterious ‘S’ thing and its memetic properties, though.
i used to see other people in elementary draw them but i never understood why and never did myself
Oh shit we totally did that in elementary back in the 90s.I was good at it and it was way popular.
We called it a GANGSTER S and teachers did not like it.
I never drew this thing, but every dude in elementary and middle school seemed to… I don’t recall it ever having a name, but it was all over kids’ binders and graffiti’d on desks.
