    21 Tumblr Posts That Should Go Down In The Tumblr Hall Of Fame Because They're That Classic

    "Superwholock"? I haven't heard that name in years...

    Allow me to take you back. It was the early 2010s. Your parents thought you were asleep, but really, you were on your desktop logging in to Tumblr.com.

    USA

    You engaged in discourse. You were part of fandoms. You posted embarrassing personal messages and used GIFs before we were texting them to each other.

    It's okay. This is a safe space. You can admit it.

    You grew up and moved on. You forgot about your online persona. And yet...somewhere, deep in your mind, you cannot forget your roots.

    It's time to face our pasts, together. Allow me to take you down memory lane with 21 Tumblr posts that will unlock some deep-seated memories of a time that is gone.

    1. Let's take it alllll the way back to the start, y'all.

    2. Never forget how we lost post editing.

    3. Or the post that saved us all from snorting marijuana.

    Old photo of taylor swift saying it's someone's friend Becky who died from snorting marijuana — someone points out that it's taylor swift, and another replies "no its becky"

    4. Or the original Fyre Fest, Dashcon.

    6. Remember when Cole Sprouse did a social experiment on us?

    7. Or when British people found out about iced tea?

    8. If just this font made your stomach clench in fear and hate, you're not alone (don't worry, I won't make you scroll).

    9. If you have ever identified as a "superwholock," you may be entitled to financial compensation.

    10. I do miss that sense of camaraderie among fandoms, even if it makes me cringe.

    Someone asks for fandom help on facebook and every fandom joins in with things like "potterheads, grab your wands, whovians, hop in your tardises, supernatural fans, get the shotguns" etc

    11. You know, we never get enough credit for our contributions to the world of shipping...

    12. ...and to design fails that you would nowadays find on Reddit.

    13. I was legitimately angry that no one ever told me they liked my shoelaces. I had my response ready.

    14. Nor did I get asked to Tumblr prom.

    15. I remember seeing this and truly believing it proved Harry Potter was real.

    someone pointing out that a way to guarantee keeping magic things like doctors or wizards a secret would be to write stories about them so in google searches just the stories would pop up
    demiboycrutchie / Tumblr / Via rowing-away.tumblr.com

    16. I gotta admit, I still chuckled at this one...

    "tricking your parents into thinking you're reading but really you're on your phone" with pictures then different bizarre follow-ups like "tricking your parents into thinking you're on your phone when you're really just a book"
    rhthis / Tumblr / Via amillionnotes.tumblr.com

    17. ...and this one.

    heated knife that slices/toasts bread — someone wants to use it to stab, another says it would cauterize the wound, another adds that'd be good for torture, then someone just wants toast — they're labeled the 4 hogwarts houses
    picapixels / Tumblr / Via 1000000noteclub.tumblr.com

    18. This escalated quickly.

    someone saying they'll spell everyone's name wrong if they work at starbucks so they can't instagram their cups, then someone asking if they're satan, then people replying with things like "are we humans or are we dancer" and "i am iron man"

    19. TBT to the Russian spies...

    photo asking who would pay more for weed, east coast frat boys or hipster teens, and someone replying how you'd scam them both, then people pointing out that russian spies wrote the post

    20. This post went on a hell of a lot longer, but I feel like you need only a glance to fill in the rest of the post in your mind.

    "you fight like a girl" and "I'm sorry, i didn't realize that was a bad thing" with a ton of pictures of fictional female fighters/warriors
    penchant-for-raising-cain / Tumblr / Via presidentmellies.tumblr.com

    21. And finally, I leave you with this utter classic.

    picture of My Chemical Romance calling them emos and someone asking if they're MCR and another replying that not every group of emos is MCR, then them all realizing it really is MCR
