Vintage Tumblr Themes

My name is Ashley, but you can call me Lully. I'm 22-years-old. I'm an artist who is heavily inspired by the dark side of humanity, Victorian era culture, foreign culture, and the spiritual. My blog is full of my inspirations, my rants, my opinions, my fandoms, and every so often, my art. Feel free to look around!

Pictured here is the remains of one of the most mysterious abandoned locations in Monroe County, Tennessee—the Coker Creek Sanitarium. This enormous ruin sits on top of an isolated mountain some 4 miles above civilization in the small mountain community of Coker Creek.
According to what I’ve recently been told, this location was part of an extremely ambitious project that had been planned out by an eccentric local physician named William A. “Doc” Rogers sometime during the 1940s. Doc was well known for his projects, which often resulted in failure. His TB hospital was no exception. A Coker Creek woman recently messaged me and informed me that her parents actually helped Doc to build his hospital. She recalled as a young child walking through this building and seeing numerous hospital beds, wheelchairs, and other medical supplies. She spoke of seeing wheelchair ramps and even a nurse’s station, which lies in ruins a short distance away from the main hospital. There were even plans of building a major road that would’ve connected Coker Creek and Tellico Plains to the hospital. A helipad was also being built further up the mountain. For whatever reason, Doc suddenly abandoned his project and moved back to Tellico Plains during the 1950s, leaving behind the TB hospital that he had built. It burnt down sometime during the 1980s when an arsonist set fire to it.

Have you ever played a video game where you have to sleep to recover? They only let you do it if everything is safe. Otherwise they won’t let you sleep. You’ll get a message, saying “You cannot sleep now, there are monsters nearby.”

Now, remember the last time you just couldn’t get to sleep?

I do.

Don’t you fuckin do this to me

So it’s 3AM and It’s just occurred to me that the most telling scene in the entire Harry Potter franchise is the scene following the announcement of the participants of the Triwizard tournament.

When Harry’s name is pulled out of the cup, literally one of the first things he is asked is “did you ask an older boy to put your name in the cup for you?" or something to that effect, insinuating that, that was something nobody prepared for and that it was something that totally would have worked if anyone had been smart enough to figure it out.

However, in an earlier scene a student is turned into a hundred year old man when they try to artificially age themselves with a potion and put their name into the cup. Meaning someone trying to dangerously age themselves with potion they aren’t familiar with was something the teachers genuinely considered to be more likely than someone asking for fucking help from another student.

In other words, the wizards in Harry Potter’s world are so reliant on magic that it doesn’t occur to anyone save for people like Harry that asking for help is even an option in a given situation. This explains why wizards are so fucking ass-backwards at everything, they’re so confident that their magic is capable of doing everything for them that it has never occurred to fucking anyone that perhaps asking for help from the muggle world might be of some use.

Think about it, the wizarding world hasn’t changed in hundreds of years while in that same space of time the muggle world has figured out fucking space travel. I know it’s a cliché to say to say someone could have fucking shot Voldemort, but seriously, somebody totally fucking could have, he killed like 50 people, he was effectively a terrorist, if anyone in the wizarding world bothered to ask for help from the muggles instead of just telling them there was an invisible asshole flying around shooting death curses at everyone, they may have been able to help. 

Pretty much the only reason Voldermort thinks he’s better than muggles is because he’s able to kill them with impunity using magic, something he’s only able to do so easily because muggles don’t understand what magic is. Voldemort is basically like a fucking disease, he’s an invisible, lurking entity preying on mankind from the shadows like a cowardly piece of shit. You know what else did that? Smallpox and we stomped that to death the second we understood it. That’s the difference between muggles and wizards, when muggles don’t understand something, they figure it out.

And here’s the kicker, the only reason muggles don’t understand magic at all is because the wizarding world deliberately withholds information about it. However, even if the wizarding world kept doing that, it’d only be a matter of time until a muggle figured out what magic was and how to stop or harness it because that’s what humanity does, it pushes past what we think is impossible to see what’s on the other side. We didn’t understand the sun as a species originally and now we use it to power satellites and smartphones.

The wizarding world isn’t a realm of infinite possibilities, it’s a universe of strict limitations where boundaries are never questioned. The muggle world is where the real magic happens. That’s why during the course of the Harry Potter books, which are set between 1991 and 1998, the muggle world (our world) discovered dark matter, cloned a sheep and invented fucking MP3s while the wizarding world were literally paying some dipshit to figure out what the purpose of a rubber duck was.

Wow, I really shouldn’t think about this stuff when it’s like 3AM, it gets kind of dark.

great stuff :D

Makes me want to find the post about the science wizards and the muggleborn students at Hogwarts again
