What Really Grinds My Gears: Reaction Memes #StarTrek #meme

If you enjoy this post, please retweet it.

Once again, you kids have wandered onto my lawn, so I need to set you straight. Consider the following meme.

I get it!

In this meme, Kira Nerys (in the first column) is reacting to what’s going on in the second column, yet her reactions are placed to the left of the Bluetooth devices. How does that make sense? While not all cultures read left to right, most do, and more to the point, ours does. Ergo, the meme shouldn’t be organized this way. Nevertheless, this is how they usually appear, and when they don’t, I’m assuming someone made a mistake. Try this, and see if a better mental picture forms in your head.

“But Rob! She’s subtly facing the wrong direction!” Not really, assuming the camera is panning from the ear to her (which makes the original image wrong for a different reason), but if it really bothers you, then flip the image, Picasso. I used MS Paint for all of this.

Doesn’t this work much better? Get it straight, dipshits.

It ain’t fun growing old.

The New Meme . . . Reclaimed by the Superior Man #StarTrek #StarWars

So, all you nerds know the new Anakin-Padme meme, right?

It’s a good meme. People have made good use of it. But you know me, so now it’s time for an upgrade.

Okay, maybe reclaimed isn’t the right word. Stolen.

A Useful Meme: Apathy #meme

If you enjoy this post, please retweet it.

Going forward, Sundays are lazy days for me. I either post something silly or other people’s work. Usually both. Today, I provide a helpful statement you may want to use as a response to the drivel often posted nowadays.

May be an image of text
Please ignore the unnecessary ink.

To make this easier, I’ve copied the text below so that you can simply copy and paste it. I changed the text a bit to express the idea using the least similar text possible. Can’t help it.

The Amazon River is 3,977 miles long, running through barely explored areas of the rain forest, and leaking its water through the porous limestone. The water flows into the depths of the earth, forming underground pools almost a mile below the surface. Evolution has resulted in the development of small, blind fish that have never seen the sky, sun, or surface of the earth, and thus isolated from human interaction.

These fish care more about this than I do.

Or don’t use it. I don’t care.
