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.


Cool!

They said the next war would be ours.
And I agreed, although I didn’t know what it meant at the time.

Two friends of mine already in the hospital, and one I will never see again. It’s surreal.

War is war. In the end, nobody wins. But sometimes we don’t have any other choice, and that’s what makes it so terrible.

So I visited the local manga store after not going there for years (because of the lack of money) and thought I’d check out if they had any art books.
The people there said they keep hardly any art books on their shelves because they take so much space but ordering them is definitely possible.
I took a look at the pile of just four books and I found something I couldn’t even dream about finding.
The Okami art book.
Even online its availability is uncertain at best so finding it in the store was a jackpot. And it wasn’t too pricey either.
Definitely the best thing I’ve found and purchased in a looooooong time.
IT’S SO BEAUTIFUL
