facts-i-just-made-up:

Here, a mother oil drilling platform is seen nursing its young.  Most offshore rigs have a gestation time of nearly 3 years, and will protect their young from pirates and protesters up to their tenth year, suggesting a highly developed intelligence and nearly mammalian qualities, suggesting to some that they may be cetacean rather than fish.  In fact they are neither, being mostly mechanical with only a few biological components which some suspect are parasitic rather than symbiotic. When fully grown, the young platform on the left will produce up to 8,000 gallons of oil an hour. It may live well over 75 years.

Keats

literarystarbucks:

Keats goes up to the counter and orders a venti iced Caramel Frappucino. He sits down at a table by himself, sighs dramatically, and doesn’t drink it.

Shakespeare

literarystarbucks:

Shakespeare goes up to the counter and orders a large cappucino with cinnamon. “Sir, we don’t have larges here. We have ventis,” says the barista. Shakespeare stares at him. “What’s in a name?” he asks.

Twain

literarystarbucks:

Mark Twain goes up to the counter and orders the quintessential American coffee, but under a fake name. He leaves it there. No one is allowed to drink it for 100 years after he leaves.

Tolkien

literarystarbucks:

Tolkien goes up to the counter and orders a Teavana Shaken Iced Blackberry Mojito Tea Lemonade. All of the hipsters inside the shop overhear and immediately go up and order the same thing. Tolkien is enraged and storms out, screaming that everyone misunderstood what he was trying to order.
