Tumblrers' epic snarky responses to "No Wifi Talk to Each Other" sign


It starts with "NO 'TELEPHONES'. TALK TO EACH OTHER. FACE TO FACE ONLY. WRITE A LETTER, SEND A TELEGRAM TO YOUR MOM, PRETEND IT'S 1860, LIVE."

It swiftly moves through "NO 'WRITING' TALK TO EACH OTHER. THROW A ROCK AT YOUR MOM. PRETEND IT’S 10,000 BCE. LIVE" and heads to "NO 'MATTER'. EXIST IN THE VOID WITHOUT PURPOSE OR MEANING. THERE IS NO 'YOU', ONLY THE VAST CONCEPT OF NOTHING. TIME DOES NOT EXIST. BE."

    I assumed that it was a case of their wifi being down, and they got so sick of the whining and incessant questions as to when it would be back up, that this sign was put up as a "just fucking live with it for a while, it's not going to kill you" message.
    Which I frankly see absolutely nothing wrong with.
    This does kind of reinforce my whole "tumblr: worst fucking place on the web" stance, and I'd like to add more likes to the first commenter's complaints about their commenting system.

  5. Outside still exists. It even has a subreddit.
