The invasion has begun.
Is that giraffe flirting with me?!
But analysts say paying such a big pricefor Tumblr, which in late 2011 was valued by its investors at $800 million, had better be worth it. Yahoo has a history of buying promising young companies only to let them waste away. Acquisitions under previous Yahoo chiefs such as Geocities, an early…
Well, as they say, nothing’s for free!
And of course something like this was bound to happen eventually—-Tumblr’s a commodity—-but one with individualism, lots of personality (-ies) and talent. And I hear some unspeakable things too! Controversy sells—-maybe they should capitalize on it here….
I just hope any advertising is more like gmail’s. I got off Facebook twice for many reasons. Advertising flung in my face was one of them.
Tumblr was like the Wild West and now the first Wal-Mart just rolled into town. Yahoo! (ooops, Yee-haw!)
I guess we’ll have to wait and see. Let’s just hope the “heart” isn’t ripped out.
Maybe I’ll make screenshots to preserve offline my tumblr diary.
It’ll be a sad day when people decide to leave tumblr for good. It all just keeps repeating itself. Some one makes a site, the community(bloggers) make the site into a wonderful place, then, the site is sold for money. Everyone will find a new place to socialize, and tumblr will slowly decay.
Look at this tree, man.
The Angel Oak Tree is estimated to be in excess of 1500 years old, stands 66.5 ft (20 m) tall, measures 28 ft (8.5 m) in circumference, and produces shade that covers 17,200 square feet (1,600 m2). From tip to tip Its longest branch distance is 187 ft.
In late December of 2003, security cameras at Hampton Court Palace, a huge tudor castle near London, captured a startling image. Security guards were unsettled to repeatedly find a fire door open when no one was apparently around. Upon checking the security tape, they were shocked by a ghostly figure, closely resembling King Henry VIII (who died in the 1500s).
Vikki Wood, a spokesperson for the Palace, said “We’re baffled too—it’s not a joke, we haven’t manufactured it. We genuinely do not know who it is or what it is.” They aren’t a ppc company, or even a company looking to gain from this oddity; they are just as baffled like most people who look at this footage.
A security officer, James Faukes, called the incident “unnerving,” and said they’d ruled out their costumed guides. “In fact, they don’t even own a costume like the one worn by the figure on the video. It was incredibly spooky because the face just didn t look human,” Faukes said.
I wanna go.
I love how Henry VII is STILL causing problems 500 years later. What a goober.
yessssssss this is perfect.
he’s all WHO ISN’T WATCHING THE FUCKING DOOR, MOTHERFUCK.
Close the door you’re letting the heat out.
