    Repurposing a spambot for buying random crap

    Guy created a bot to spew random shit to a twitter feed, then decided to use it to buy him random shit off Amazon instead.

    This is pretty weird, but it's always interpretable as art (it's a metaphor for the role of the conciousness in our consumption society, and it interacts with society by mutating the popular items list in an unpredictable way, bla bla bla). However, it's also cool in a creepy way.

    Now I'm curious: what *is* the dumbest thing you've seen on tumblr?

    It's really hard to pick (but the random Amazon purchase is not anywhere close). I'd probably go with otherkin. And "the best of social justice" is a nice survey of them and the runners up.

    That is utterly weird, and one of those things that I would like to unsee. Suddenly, I'm seeing advantages to Iran having an atomic bomb.
