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

i love this photo because at first you think that she was going to get married but instead her husband to be left her, or something like that. but actually its quite the opposite. i clicked on the source and it brought me to an article explaining the story behind this photo, and shes not crying, shes hungover. her and her husband went to a football game on their wedding day, and got extremely drunk and partied all night. they took the subway home because they couldn’t drive. so no, its not a sad heartbreaking story, its a crazy joyful one. which in my opinion makes the picture even more amazing.

CAN PEOPLE PLEASE REBLOG THE PIC WITH THIS CAPTION^ AND NOT THE ONE WHERE EVERYONE IS SAD AND ARE LIKE “POOR GIRL GOD BLESS”

The world can make us all feel pretty helpless on a regular basis. But we’re not. Check out these amazing charities Kevin Church recommends here and consider donating a little something. It’ll make a real difference in someone’s life.

HOLY CATS! This is another important update to the 2014 Kevin Church Birthday Fundraiser To Help Kids To Read Good! Please read and donate! Thank you!

Superstar artist Joe Quinones has joined in the fray by offering up the original artwork for his famous Batgirl of Burnside pin-up!

This piece joins:

  • a page of original Superman comic book art by Stuart Immonen and Josef Rubenstein
  • an all-new sketch of Superman by Stuart (done with Copic markers on Stillman and Birn Zeta series extra heavyweight 270gsm plate finish 8.5” x 11”)
  • a 9”x12” commission by Tom Fowler (no art direction, you pick the character, he does the rest)
  • Rocket Raccoon and a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle, as rendered by Calamity Jon Morris
  • six copies of the rare variant cover of Code Monkey Save World as prizes in the 2014 Kevin Church Birthday Fundraiser To Help Kids To Read Good.

So, how does the 2014 Kevin Church Birthday Fundraiser To Help Kids To Read Good work?

All you have to do to qualify for a chance to win is donate $5 or more to one of the charities featured below before 11:59PM on August 18 and then forward your receipt to kevin.church@gmail.com after you’ve donated. You can choose any of these projects, or all of them. I don’t care. If you want to make a note during your donation that it’s for my birthday fundraiser, that would be nice, but it’s not at all necessary.

Winners will be chosen on the evening of Tuesday, August 19 and announced later in the week (We might be videoing the raffle portion, maybe? I need to talk to some people.)

Now, for the charities we’re raising money for this year.

This is a local nonprofit I heartily endorse
Horizons for Homeless Children is, as their website explains, a nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the lives of young homeless children and their families by ensuring that they are prepared for school success. They do terrific work in the local area and I’ve donated what I can to them in the past.

I also like these projects on DonorsChoose.org:
Check This Out! at Frances J Warren Elementary School in Tuscon, AZ, serving underprivileged kids in a very poor district with a wide variety books to help them discover how great reading can be. As of 8 on Saturday morning, this had $421 to go.

Notebooks for Writing at Mosaic Prep Academy in New York City, giving kids access to the very basics that will help them start creating worlds for themselves. As of 8 on Saturday morning, this had $833 to go.

More Books For Our Classroom Library in Gautier, MS, offering up literary options that will engage kids and let them learn how great reading can be. As of 8 on Saturday morning, this had $677 to go.

Creating a Classroom of Readers and Writers at James Bilhartz Junior Elementary School in Dallas, TX, helping fourth-graders get the basics to help them organize, read and write about library books. As of 8 on Saturday morning, this had $837 to go.

Developing a True Multicultural Perspective through Literature in Atlanta, GA, teaching teens about the world at large through works that offer alternative perspectives on our world. As of 8 on Saturday morning, this had $930 to go.

Please note: if you are a comics creator who would like to donate a book or original art or a commission or something to this effort, please let me know at kevin.church@gmail.com. I’d love to get some more incentives in place for donations.
