what happened in roughly 1870 though
why was there temporary internet
with a few people searching for pokemon?

It’s a search of Google books, but the question still stands, what the Fuck happened in 1870

I CAN ANSWER THIS!!
In the Cornish dialect of English, Pokemon meant ‘clumsy’ (pure coincidence).
In the mid 1800s there was a surge of writing about the Cornish language and dialect in an attempt to preserve them with glossaries and dictionaries being written. I wrote about it HERE.


I just love that this post happened to find the ONE HUMAN ON THE INTERNET who had the answer to this question

Blast From the Past: “Evil Overlording for Dummies”

neopiantimesreviews:

Welcome to the first installment of our Blast from the Past series! The Neopian Times has had a very long run, much longer than some users may realize. Did you know that (according to New Features) the very first issue of the Neopian Times was released on 25 January 2000—a mere three months after the site itself launched?

Unfortunately (or perhaps fortunately) the very oldest issues are lost to the ravages of time, but everything from Issue 23 on of the old old Neopian times has been preserved nearly intact for your reading… erm… enjoyment. (Let’s just say the quality standards of today’s NT were a little more lax back then.)

Our aim with Blast From the Past is to bring to light some old classics and hidden gems that may have gone unnoticed by newer users. We’ll be linking to them and discussing why we chose them to recommend to our followers.

So, without further ado, here’s our first recommendation!

okay but when you have holocaust survivors and people who were activists during the civil rights movement supporting mike brown and then KKK members and neo nazis supporting the officer you should be able to figure out which side is the right one.
