1950s Japanese Toshiba Typewriter

 
In the 1940s, Toshiba began producing index typewriters with massive, horizontal cylinders containing thousands of symbols.

One edition, the BW-2112 (watch the video above) was a particularly advanced model with keys in three languages: Japanese, Chinese, and English.

Unfortunately, Toshiba stopped producing the model when it switched to a Western-style keyboard in the mid-1950s that instead had 48 Japanese Kana characters, making devices like this one exceedingly rare.

I can’t even imagine how complex insides of this thing must be.

MARVEL Upcoming Movies…

The Eternals: The costumes of the next heroes are revealed | Marvel,  Avengers movies, Marvel costumes

Marvel didn’t just drop the first look at Eternals.

They also teased every Marvel film that will be released from now until May 2023. HuffPo describes Marvel’s three-minute video, which is narrated by the late Stan Lee, as a “sizzle reel,” which is an accurate description for those who get very excited over this kind of stuff.

At nearly two minutes into the video, we get those teaser clips from upcoming movies like Black Widow (out July of this year), Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings (September 2021), then Oscar-winner Chloé Zhao’s Eternals, which opens with a clip of Salma Hayek in a cowboy hat and riding a horse, then transitions into our first introduction to all the Eternals, a superhero squad. Angelina Jolie plays Thena.

There’s also release dates for Spider-Man No Way Home (December 2021), Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness (March 2022), Thor: Love and Thunder (May 2022), The Marvels (November 2022), Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania (February 2023), and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 (May 2023). Those are literally all sequels or follow-ups, by the way.

You know what, I’m honestly shocked they didn’t also announce a sequel to Eternals at the end, since everything gets a sequel.

Eternals 2: Never Stop Never Stopping, in theatres July 2026…

And it will still premiere before Angelina and Brad Pitt have finalised their child custody situation.

Pure Feelings

I had a day off yesterday and I spent it mostly sleeping, because like a vampire, I sleep during daylight. At some point in the afternoon I took a nap and had a dream… I dreamt of Max.

In my dream he came to visit me, and when I saw him I smiled and felt too much… So much that I woke up feeling all those emotions that turned into sadness when I realised it was just a dream.

Yeah, I actually felt sad because deep inside I do miss him still.

And because I refuse to feel that way I did what I do best in order to change my mood… I had sex with someone else!

After months of not using a hookup app, I downloaded one. Needless to say I never slept again because I always get tons of messages.

As matter of fact over 1000 guys were looking at my profile since last night

Yeah, it’s kinda very easy to find sex, which is also why I never keep those apps longer than a week. It’s just too overwhelming.

Anyway, the guy last night was very easy going and seemed to like a lot my eyes and soft skin by the constant compliments. He recently broke up with his girlfriend, but after meeting me he couldn’t be happier (his words lol).

Also, I have this other straight Russian dude wanting to do me for the last few days…

Long story short my subconscious always reminds me that I still have pure feelings in my impure body… Not cool.

#ComingOut

A record-breaking number of gay and bisexual teenage boys are out to their parents.

A new study, published in the Psychology of Sexual Orientation and Gender Diversity journal, shows that 66 percent of those in this demographic (ages 13 to 18) are out to their mothers, while 49 percent are out to their fathers.

This is a marked uptick from older generations. In the 1990s, for example, 40 percent of boys were out to mothers and less than 30 percent were out to fathers, the study noted.

Yeah, when I was young a big majority was in the closet. But those were other times… GenX was not too accepted/accepting. Millennials were mostly cool and fine.

But GeZ is remarkable open about sexuality.

In other words this is evolution! Which is simply amazing.

Hopefully with Generation Alpha these studies won’t longer exist.
