These are mostly just mean …but kinda funny.
Job postings that only use male pronouns.
See, this is why using “they”, while technically incorrect, can often be the least worst option.
Armchair travelling to Ballardian locations.
Documenting history through photography.
Celebrating 125 years of National Geographic, this Tumblr blog is a curated collection of photography from the archives. Many of the pictures are being published for the first time.
A collection of those appalling doublespeek announcements that sites and services give when they get acquired. You know the ones: they begin with “We’re excited to announce…” and end with people’s data being flushed down the toilet.
Another Tom Scott project:
I had to take one more quick, cheap shot — and I think a Tumblr blog is the quickest, cheapest shot it’s possible to take.
I think there might be some subliminal messages hidden in these album covers.
Documenting all the ways you could die in a choose-your-own-adventure book.
Celebrating the work of the tireless men and women who shorten headlines so they’ll fit on your iPhone.
The not-so-new-but-hella-fun aesthetic.
Quadrants created by two crossed lines in an X formation. Hardcore.
The Old Aesthetic. It’s eighties-tastic!
I’m sure there’s a theme connecting all of these pictures. I just haven’t figured out what it is yet.
This is wonderfully random: illustrations used to illustrate patent applications but without the context.
These lovely doodles from Carla give me Fernweh for Germany.
There’s two years(!) of doctored headlines here. Yes, it’s puerile but it’s also very funny (to my puerile sensibilities).
You can’t have a zeitgeisty internet meme without cats.
Yeah, it’s an easy target …but the cumulative effect is very funny.
Holy sh!t. Did you see that interstitial? That was dope. Refresh, refresh!!
Beautiful, funny, and disturbing Gilliamesque animated .gifs.
A twitter for the Long Now from Russell Davies. You can submit an answer to the question “What are you doing, you know, more generally?” to:

Sometimes the good folk at HTML5doctor.com get asked questions that might be better suited for a real, medical doctor. These are those questions.
Funny but creepy. Freepy.
Where men meets moustaches meets hair meets moustaches meets hair meets MOUSTAIR.
Yet another reason to host your own content instead of sharecropping; danah boyd wakes up one morning to find her Tumblr account has been moved to a different URL.
There appears to be an endless supply of subject matter for this.
Brilliant; just brilliant. Connor O’Brien remains skeptical about the abstract permanence of “the cloud.” The observations are sharp and the tone is spot-on.
If your only photo album is Facebook, ask yourself: since when did a gratis web service ever demonstrate giving a flying fuck about holding onto the past?
Garret Murray turns the snark up to eleven. "People post ridiculous 'art' to Tumblr. These pieces frequently make it into Popular. I reblog them here and call them out for being stupid."
Tumblr has just added a shedload of new features.
