I saw some frosted tips out there this morning.
Smashmouth, is that you?
Damn, Shotwell was fancy!

i mean before the yuppies came in and fucked it up
i mean before the black people came in and FUNKED it up

…and they say global warming isn’t real…
Looks like the Mission has been on about 100+ year downhill slide…
That was the result of a period of volcanic winter caused by the 1883 eruption of Krakatoa. There were record blizzards worldwide.
So I was reading this thinking “uh, I think you got the years wrong, dude” and then fell into a Wikipedia rabbit hole learning about the 1883 Krakatoa eruption. Holy shit balls, that affected world climate for 5+ years after the event! That’s insane!
this is why i love our commenters
