The weirdest vintage Halloween costumes

They just straddle the line between silly and horrifying

That first picture is giving me flashbacks to Ubu Roi and it’s terrifying

The lead story on the BBC News Magazine today is all about "The great 1980s Dungeons & Dragons panic". It’s a nice little summary of a situation which I wish we could all scoff at and say would never happen again with anything. Fat fucking chance.

"In 1982, high school student Irving Lee Pulling died after shooting himself in the chest. Despite an article in the Washington Post at the time commenting "how [Pulling] had trouble ‘fitting in’", mother Patricia Pulling believed her son’s suicide was caused by him playing D&D.
Again, it was clear that more complex psychological factors were at play. Victoria Rockecharlie, a classmate of Irving Pulling, commented that “he had a lot of problems anyway that weren’t associated with the game”.
At first, Patricia Pulling attempted to sue her son’s high school principal, claiming the curse placed upon her son’s character during a game run by the principal was real. She also sued TSR Inc, the publishers of D&D. Despite the court dismissing these cases, Pulling continued her campaign by forming Bothered About Dungeons and Dragons (BADD) in 1983.”

Whilst I knew about the general situation, I’d never investigated BADD before. So I did a bit of rooting around, and found this: a scan of one of BADD’s propaganda booklets, with commentary. PRIMARY SOURCES ARE THE BEST SOURCES.
If you’re even vaguely interested in the subject, I highly recommend you give this a read. It’s ludicrously fascinating… and a reminder of just how much effort people will put into crusades that are so fundamentally warped.

Can we all take a minute to hyperventilate over the fact that they put this signature move in the movie?

Yes we can.

This really gets my feels going. I just— Tony shoots at Steve without really talking about it first. They haven’t even known each other long. He shoots at him and Steve reflects it. Tony trusts Steve to do that, and to reflect it away from Tony, to use the blast to hit the enemies, to actually make this team thing work. Tony says he’s not a team player, but he is. He so totally is. He can’t even pretend he isn’t, especially when he does things like this.

Shanesha Taylor was arrested on March 20th by the Scottsdale Police for leaving her children ages 2 and 6 months in her car while she interviewed for a job. Ms. Taylor was homeless and could not access any child care. Her desperation to provide for herself and her children and her lack of options led her to take drastic measures in search of employment. Ms. Taylor needs support & help rather than incarceration and a criminal record that will surely decrease her chances to provide for her children in the future. We ask that Maricopa County use common-sense and provide support for Ms. Taylor and her children rather than punishment.
Shanesha Taylor is still in jail pending a $9,000 bond.

"A Sticky Situation" (1960) by Carl Barks

I like how advertising is literally still exactly as sexist as they’re joking about in this comic from 54 years ago.

This is such a fucking lifesaver. Been having this issue for over a year now, despite driver updates and reinstalls and etc etc etc… when this trick worked I wanted to do one of those football victory slams with my keyboard I was so excited.

PS: I don’t use whatever program is in the screenshot; I only use Photoshop! Its a Wacom issue though so I expect this works with any program that randomly loses pressure sensitivity.

For people having issues with their tablet. I wonder if this will also work for Monoprice users who don’t want to get the UC-logic Tablet driver
