Redditor fungiside was in the right place at the right time to capture this awesome image of a giant digital billboard during a video calibration test. We’re pretty sure this is a lot more fun to look at than whatever advertisement was subsequently displayed.

"The video is a test to make sure all of the individual panels are working together to make one complete picture. And actually, if you look about a quarter of the way up from the bottom, you will notice a horizontal line going all the way across and breaking the pattern. This is what they are looking for when doing a test like this."

I just read the rest of that AfterEllen article and I literally cannot stop laughing at the idea of Blaine dating manpaincreys. I just…. This has to be performance art, right? Ryan Murphy is just sitting on his throne of tears punking all of America, right?

What I have made for you here is a handy guide to Glee’s final season. You can find the key over at AE! 
For example: 

6) Rachel and Kurt will leave their lives behind in New York City and return to McKinley High School to wallow in the small town mire they spent four entire seasons plotting to leave behind. Yes, that’s right. Glee has decided to take a piss on the one single thing it has been consistent about for six years: Rachel and Kurt’s desire and drive and ability to Make Their Dreams Come True. I mean, in some ways of course the writers were going to do this. They’ve made it clear that Will Schuester’s half-witted, mansplaining, petulant, banal, casually racist/sexist/biphobic/transmisogynistic wanker personality is the beacon to which all true heroes should aspire—so why not have Rachel and Kurt abandon their successes in the greatest city on earth to come home and coach their high school show choir? Maybe Mr. Schue can give them a crash course on how to gyrate with students while singing about how awesome it is to date rape!

Glee’s ability to out-worst itself really is legendary.

The Catch 22 with poor people and clothes is that if you wear “expensive” looking or upperclass coded clothes, rich people claim that you don’t need help and are taking advantage of welfare.  But if you wear “cheap” looking or lower class coded clothes, then they see you as “trashy” and tell you that it’s your presentation and manner of dress that are to blame for classism and discrimination against you.

I am so tired of these leftist men, the ones who are smart and sensitive and funny and being all those things, who know exactly what buttons to push, what political buzzwords to use, what to say to manipulate the women around them into protecting them from accountability for their predatory actions because there are SO MANY of you
