Though Mostly Sherlock. Feel free to drop me an ask! ((especially if you're from MA because I swear there is no one in this fucking state)) I love hearing from people. Hugs to you all!
Since Halloween is coming up soon, I figured I would try to make a small guide on how to tell if something is a jumpscare video or not. Please keep in mind that this isn’t 100% accurate, and the best thing to do is use your own judgement.
That said, usually a video contains a jumpscare if:
It tells you to look closely or to turn the music up, or already has small/poor quality images and quiet music
If it’s on Youtube, the comments and ratings will either have poor reactions (ex. “wtf is wrong with you!!! that scared my (insert younger family member here)”) or be disabled.
The most recently circulated one (a flashing/screaming image of Jeff the Killer) is a .swf file, so if you’re sent a suspicious link, hover over it. If it ends in .swf, it’s best to just not open it.
The most popular jumpscares are “Relaxing Car Ride,” “Scary Maze,” “Subliminal Images and Music,” “Michael Jackson Ghost,” “Kikia,” and “Where’s Waldo?”
Also keep in mind that Youtube now enables automatically-repeating videos, meaning that some screamers may repeat themselves over and over until you close the window (in non-Youtube instances, the site may even make it to where you can’t close the window, meaning that you or someone else has to unplug your computer).
Someone messaged me recently about tinyurls, and how people have been using them to send people jumpscares. If you have a concern regarding a tinyurl, add preview. to the beginning of the url (including the period!) so that it will show you what the link leads to! for example, if the link was “tinyurl.com/6c8nryl”, you would type “preview.tinyurl.com/6c8nryl” (for those who are worried, the url leads to cuteroulette)
plz keep in mind that the riots in glasgow are not simply no voters…they’re extremists….. it’s the orange order… not no voters in general… plz make that distinction. the orange order is bad. people who voted against independence aren’t. even if u disagree, ur general run of the mill no voter is not out there rioting. keep in mind there were like 3 million no voters… stop lumping them all in w/ the orange order
Scotland has been building up to voting on whether they should become Independent from the United Kingdom since 2012, the Idea’s been in the works since the ’50s. Yes voters want to be independent, No voters want to stay in the UK.
Quiz many Americans on how the federal government works, and you might as well be asking them about rocket science. A recent poll of 1,416 adults from the Annenberg Public Policy Center of the University of Pennsylvania released Wednesday shows that a grave number of Americans show “great uncertainty” on “basic questions” about how their government functions — including stuff that any middle schooler, let alone a voter entrusted with electing the most powerful people on the planet, should know.
This is the threat. British nationalism. Not Scottish nationalism. In the city that voted Yes. Back to this kind of Glasgow. Nazi salutes and chants about the famine.
Stabbing of a Yes voter, scuffles with the police, nazi salutes, fascism, bigotry, hatred, intolerance, Saltire burning and young women being terrorised on the street. To think Wednesday night the same square was full of families, hope and laughter. These are the brave guardians of our United Kingdom! Better together eh? Not with you lot.
Friends if you are around tonight, be safe. Glasgow City centre is not safe.
"Glasgow deserves to burn for voting Yes" is a quote from one of these guys, which is fun.
Guys!! Keep the message going around on Tumblr that Glasgow is super unsafe rn! Please!! Thanks guys! I’m just really scared for everyone!! I’m so sorry to spam with all this Scotland stuff but it’s really dangerous at the moment! Thank you!!
