The internet as we know it subsists on fakery and facsimile. Only one of those two f’s is really relevant to what I’m gonna post here but I wanted to say both because it had a nice ring to it when said out loud. ‘Subsists on fakery and facsimile.’ It sounds like something a movie villain in love with the sound of their own voice and a penchant for the dramatic would say. ‘You people think you’re so righteous and superior, yet despite your airs you subsist on ffffakery and fffffacsimile as much as a run-of-the-mill ffffalse god!’ Spending a lot of time on the badlands of the internet, and seeing them evolve over time with new settlements popping up here and there, you learn to be cultivate a certain…healthy mistrust…when wandering through a new settlement. Your hand resting lightly on the revolver by your side as you take step after curious-yet-trepidatious step, you eye the locals peeking out through windows and from their card games in the saloons. ‘Ok, ‘Am I The A**Hole Town’, you sound promising, and I wanna trust you, but you know, some of you might look trustworthy enough, but I dunno about everyone else.’ In other words: Whenever I find a new internet cave that makes me laugh or otherwise delights me, I desperately want my hard-honed instincts to be wrong, and for all of the treasures contained within to be nuggets of real gold, rather than some movie prop department yellow-spray painted cardboard. And that’ll be enough of the metaphors, and we’ll move smoothly to a case in point: The Twitter account, Live From Snack Time, which documents the best, most oddly poetic quotes that a teacher in NYC overhears from their kids. Here, go for a wander, but keep your hand on your gun:
