Flappers Dancing the Charleston atop the Sherman Hotel, Chicago, 1926 -
namraka:
Flappers were a “new breed” of young Western women in the 1920s who wore short skirts, bobbed their hair, listened to jazz, and flaunted their disdain for what was then considered acceptable behavior. Flappers were seen as brash for wearing excessive makeup, drinking, treating sex in a casual manner, smoking, driving automobiles, and otherwise flouting social and sexual norms. Flappers had their origins in the liberal period of the Roaring Twenties, the social, political turbulence and increased transatlantic cultural exchange that followed the end of World War I, as well as the export of American jazz culture to Europe. From Wikipedia
The Charleston is a dance named for the harbor city of Charleston, South Carolina. The rhythm was popularized in mainstream dance music in the United States by a 1923 tune called “The Charleston” by composer/pianist James P. Johnson which originated in the Broadway show Runnin’ Wild and became one of the most popular hits of the decade. Runnin’ Wild ran from 29 October 1923 through 28 June 1924. The peak year for the Charleston as a dance by the public was mid-1926 to 1927. From Wikipedia

Really need to click for the hi-res to see how the globe of water sucks up the light and shoots the light back at you, :)).

Somebody tried to stump this squid by putting it in front of a background that its camouflage mechanisms could never hope to imitate…
So it turned itself transparent.

stick it to the man, Squid.

"Right-handed people live an average of 9 years longer than left-handed people"?

This is because most pieces of equipment, especially power tools, are designed for right-handed people, iirc

nice

It’s so hard being a leftie in a right-handed world :’(

Lefties unite.

Left handed people rule

Lefties united forever!

Fuck lefties. ABOMINATIONS

Excuse you.

The lefties will be the next thumb cat regime. But it is better because we already exist.

I think it is safe to say you are no longer a special snowflake for being a lefty

I think it is safe to say shut the fuck up and don’t tell people they’re not special

I think its safe to say don’t act like a good person fighting for people to be special but telling someone else to shut the fuck up

I think it’s safe to say you know you been on tumblr too long when being left handed/right handed starts an argument lol
