Man’s Sarcastic Last Words Before Being Hanged Emerge Online, And People Can’t Even

Daniel Summers, self-described “medicine & health columnist” and “cranky pediatrician,” recently found religion.

He found his patron saint, anyway:

Twitter

Here’s Klaas Meijer’s original tweet:

A little history lesson, courtesy of Wikipedia:

Thomas de Mahy, marquis de Favras (March 26, 1744 – February 19, 1790) was a French aristocrat and supporter of the House of Bourbon during the French Revolution. Often seen as a martyr of the Royalist cause, Favras was executed for his part in planning against the people of France and is known for saying ‘I see that you have made three spelling mistakes’ upon reading his death certificate.

Ring any bells? No?

Well, old Thomas got some newfound respect on Twitter, because spelling is serious business:

Summers chimed back in:

And Twitter learned about another badass:

Summers heard from the “well, actually” crowd:

So he clarified his intentions:

And he summed up the unexpectedly epic thread nicely:

Maybe Thomas wasn’t such a great guy IRL, but for spelling geeks? He’s our jam.

Twitter Comedian Digs Up A Bunch Of Racist Tweets From Donald Trump Dating Back To 2013

A Twitter user posted some really disgusting old Tweets from — you guessed it — none other than 45:

Let’s take a closer look at these.

Don’t got to this original tweeter’s profile. Seriously. You’ll want to break something.

 This “editorial” is what we like to call “Completely Made Up To Get Attention”:

And, of course, don’t forget about his wish to reinstate the death penalty in New York specifically for the Central Park Five, a group of teenagers (four black, one latinx) who were exonerated in the rape of a white banker by a DNA test in 2002 after their 1989 conviction.

Donald Trump is a white supremacist. There are no other words for it. And people like @Freeyourmindkid want to make sure the world knows.

Woman Dyes Her Face Pink With 'Washable' Paint And The Internet Wasn't Kind

If you plan on putting paint anywhere near your skin, make sure it’s body paint. Some paint may say that it washes off of skin, but they’re usually talking about small amounts of paint you accidentally get on your arm. Poster paint probably isn’t going to wash off easily, as Twitter user Leah recently discovered… 

People were relentless in their mocking.

You Can Now Get Pumpkin Churros At Disneyland And People Are Pumped

Think you’re too old to go to Disneyland? You won’t be when you see what they’re offering in terms of food this fall, including lots of spooky treats—and most importantly, pumpkin churros.

In retrospect, it seems crazy that this already wasn’t a craze sweeping the nation. Churros are deliciously sweet and flakey and cinnamon-y anyway—they’re a perfect vessel for pumpkin-y fall yumminess.

According to the Disney Parks Blog, that’s not the only thing the park will be offering in advance of Halloween—you can also munch on treats such as a “Monstermallow Donut,” a “Bat Wing Raspberry Sundae,” and a “Mummy Macaron Ice Cream Sandwich.” 

But if you’re too far away from California to pop into the Anaheim resort and eat yourself into a coma, I am pleased to tell you that Bobby Flay, bless his heart, has a recipe for pumpkin churros you can make yourself. It even includes a chocolate-coffee dipping sauce, which hopefully sounds adult enough to scare your children away from enjoying these sweets. 

But if you are planning to go to Disneyland soon, HelloGiggles writes that it appears the pumpkin churros are available at the Cozy Cone Motel in Cars Land at California Adventure.

Donald Trump Wore A Mismatched Suit And Twitter Dragged Him

The President of the United States has, in the past month, considered cutting the refugee cap to the lowest level a president has ever set, seemingly equated counter-protestors with actual white supremacists, and publicly went back and forth over whether he planned to end DACA. People have lots of issues with all of that, but right now, let’s talk about fashion. Specifically—did Donald Trump wear a mismatched suit to his meeting with Sen. Tim Scott?

It appears he did, unless it’s some really weird trick of the light. Why? How? Doesn’t the White House have employees whose job is to tell the president “don’t go out like that?”

And of course, even Barack Obama, the president GQ probably made in a lab, wore a tan suit once.

By the way, as Someecards‘s Orli Matlow points out, it’s kind of nice that we’re having this dumb fashion conversation about a male politician, right?

Woman's Side By Side Photos Prove Clothing Sizes Are Meaningless

Women’s clothing sizes are ridiculous, and pretty much a roll of the dice. Men have it pretty easy, dealing with small, medium, or large, while women have varying measurements that don’t really seem to match up between different brands.

Instagram user Mira Hirsch, a body-positive activist from South Africa, knows this pain all too well. While shopping recently, she found two pairs of pants marked the same size, but which had very different results…

And people seem to agree, with the post attracting more than 3,500 likes in 24 hours. Commenters were very supportive:

Trump Supporters Tried To Boycott Stephen King’s ‘IT’—It Didn’t Work Out So Well

Famed horror author Stephen King has had a shaky relationship with President Trump and his supporters for some time now.

Unafraid of tackling Trump’s policies, King even managed to get himself blocked on Twitter by the President in August, prompting him to “ban” Trump from seeing two of his then-upcoming movies: ITandMr. Mercedes:

In retaliation, Trump supporters took to Reddit to organize a boycott ofIT:

Many users were down for the boycott:

Although others wanted to see it as long as no money went to King:

In the end, though, their boycott attempt was a total bust. IT has become a runaway smash hit, opening with a massive $ 123 million haul over the weekend in the U.S., according to Variety, and is expected to rake in an additional $ 62 million in foreign markets.

In fact, it’s on track to become the biggest opening weekend ever for a supernatural or horror film.

But that didn’t stop King fans from trolling Trump and his followers:

Given the horrors the country has already seen, perhaps there’s a certain clown that could step in for Trump:

Next time, don’t mess with King:

There Is A Hidden Meaning In The Division Sign You've Probably Never Noticed

On Monday, Twitter user Abdul Dremali tweeted an observation about the division symbol that quickly went viral for making everyone see their childhood math lessons differently.

According to BuzzFeed, there’s some anecdotal truth to this idea. While the symbol, known as an obelus, was once used to signify uncertainty in a quotation or even subtraction, it isn’t clear why it was eventually adopted as a division symbol in 1659. But math teachers have used it ever since to help teach students that division is just making two numbers into a simplified fraction—and it isn’t the only symbol in which Twitter users have noted a clever design.

And guess what—‰ is called the permille and ‱ is called the permyriad. You can see how they get their names—per cent means per hundred and per mille means per thousand, derived from Latin. A “myriad” is an outdated way to say ten thousand.

That one’s not technically math, but I bet you never realized that (or, at least I didn’t). For many of these, I just wish I knew the meanings of the symbols when I was struggling in elementary school math.

Everyone Is Freaking Out About Killer Sex Robots

Today, The New York Post announced that hackers might be able to someday reprogram sex robots and use them for murder. And the general consensus on Twitter seemed to be “good.”

Apparently, cybersecurity lecturer Dr. Nick Patterson said in an interview with Star Onlinethat sex robots are actually much easier to hack into than computers or phones are. “Hackers can hack into a robot or a robotic device and have full control of the connections, arms, legs and other attached tools like knives or welding devices,” he said. So, um, don’t add knives or welding devices to your sex doll.

“Once a robot is hacked, the hacker has full control and can issue instructions to the robot,” Patterson continued. 

Believe it or not, sex robots are already a very real thing, thanks to companies like RealDoll (which has one of the most fascinating, creepy Instagram accounts I’ve ever seen—think 50 percent sex doll wet teeshirt shots, 50 percent technicians holding fake eyeballs). So this future is already theoretically possible.

In the dolls’ defense, however, you can’t get them pregnant, so let’s just say that sex is risky no matter what.
