what happened in roughly 1870 though

why was there temporary internet

with a few people searching for pokemon?

It’s a search of Google books, but the question still stands, what the Fuck happened in 1870

I CAN ANSWER THIS!!

In the Cornish dialect of English, Pokemon meant ‘clumsy’ (pure coincidence).

In the mid 1800s there was a surge of writing about the Cornish language and dialect in an attempt to preserve them with glossaries and dictionaries being written. I wrote about it HERE.

I just love that this post happened to find the ONE HUMAN ON THE INTERNET who had the answer to this question

Homemade Rollercoaster David Chesney Projects Design Hobbies Rides Wheeee Minotaur Backyard projects Engineering DIY
archiemcphee

archiemcphee:

19-year-old Queen’s University engineering student David Chesney spent four years building a wooden roller coaster in his parents’ backyard in Toronto, CA. He calls it the Minotaur and it was built using used scrap wood, steel plating and his uncle’s tools. The homemade coaster measures 12 ft tall and 92 ft long and features two ~12 ft drops. Chesney says the coaster’s steel car can reach speeds of 20 km/h.

“My dad didn’t like the idea at all from the beginning,” Chesney explained to the Toronto Star. “Mom was kinda, ‘Uhhhh, I guess so.’ I don’t think that either of them understood the scope of what I had in mind.”

“It just got bigger,” he added. “Then it got to the point where my parents said ‘it’s huge but you’ve gotten this far so just finish it and then take it down after.’ ”

archiemcphee

archiemcphee:

Since 1997 UK-based artist Gerry Judah has been creating gravity-defying car-themed sculptures for the annual Goodwood Festival of Speed in Sussex, England. Each dynamic piece features cars that appear to have been frozen in time in the midst of racing across the surface of large-scale steel structures.

Visit Gerry Judah’s website to check out more of his creations.

Head over to Twisted Sifter for more photos and information about each of these awesome automotive sculptures.
