Twisted Tuesdays: Animated Gif Apocalypse Rorschach Test

by Tracy Vanity

I’m really glad I don’t know how to make animated gifs because I spend enough hours a day dicking around on the internet. Thankfully there are people out there who have dedicated their time to the art of animated-gif-creating so I don’t have to bother learning and can just repost their shit.

Since this is the 1st Twisted Tuesday of the year I wanted to do something other than post twisted videos. Believe me, I have like ten years worth of fucked up youtube vids to post. And there will be plenty of time for that…

For this post, I want to get reader/lurker involvement. One or more of these various moving images should inspire your fingers to fly across the keyboard in response, be it a simple “wtf IS that?” to an anecdote about your life, to a made-up story that just slapped your ass. Anything. Whatever your reaction is, post it! You can even do it anonymously if you’re shy.

So I’m going to post 13 animated gifs with an accompanying Roman numeral so that you may reference it in your response if you so choose.

Just like you, I don’t know the origin of most of the shit I come across and just add my own interpretation. That’s really what the internet is here for: fuck context, it’s all about your reaction…an internet Rorschach test if you will. Just post your immediate reaction to anything you see.

Now on to the Animated Gif Apocalypse!

Twisted Tuesdays: It’s Ok, You’re Going to Die

by Tracy Vanity

With the recent tragedy that has happened in the U.S. and the upcoming Maya Apocalypse, I thought it best to post something to ease your minds.

Sometimes you just need the MGM lion to sit you down and put shit into perspective.

I find this video soothing and helpful, especially while trying to get through the worst month of the year.

Thank you MGM lion!


Twisted Tuesdays: Zombies in Nature

by Tracy Vanity

Zombie insects are nothing new but scientists keep discovering new organisms that burrow into some species’ brain, makes them do crazy shit, and kills them off in some Kafkaesque/Day of the Dead/Aliens way that makes you go “wow nature is a real sadistic cunt!”

Example –

Cordyceps fuck up some ants:

Sir David Attenborough is the shit. He should be the only one allowed to narrate everything in life. EVERYTHING! I love that man. I’ve seen that video dozens of times and still shiver in disgusted amazement. Imagine being an ant, chilling, looking for food for your colony, and then your friends frantically tell you to get away from them, and then some fucking fungus breaks through your entire body and kills you? That would be pretty fucked up wouldn’t it?

Cordyceps don’t just zombie invade ants though, here is what they do to unsuspecting tarantulas:

I just read this article about a European gypsy moth caterpillar virus that makes a caterpillar climb to the tallest part of a tree where “their diseased bodies split open, raining infected caterpillar guts onto the leaves and branches below.”

By doing this, the caterpillar guts have a higher chance of raining down on other caterpillars and infecting them and then they go and climb and explode their guts onto their pals until the whole tree becomes a zombie caterpillar apocalypse. This National Geographic article has more details on that particular strain of zombie insect infection.

I tried to find video of that but could only find pics of the aftermath:

It’s not just killer fungi that insects need to watch out for, here are some jewel wasps turning roaches into their zombie bitches:

They can also do it to spiders:

Still not creeped out enough? Live Science has a gallery of zombified ant species, Scientific American has a whole slide show of zombie animals, and here is an article on zomBEES.

Enjoy, sleep tight! Be glad you aren’t an arthropod. Humans have nothing to worry about…right?
