My Top 3 Trending Tumblrs for October

There are many Tumblrs I follow. But as with any social media followings, I can really only care about a few at a time.  Here are a few of my favorites that have been getting more of my re-blogs lately.

1. Kim Jong Il Looking at Things

It’s exactly what it promises. With plenty of stock photos ripe for some photoshopping.  Here’s mine:

2. Shit that Siri Says

STSS shows the smart and not so smart responses of Apple’s new voice controlled personal assistant. These convos remind me of Cleverbot, except more clever.

3. Actually, You’re the 47%

In Response to “The 53%,” the Tumblr set up as the 4chan of anti-Occupy Wallstreet, “Actually You’re the 47%,” highlights the fact that the contributors to the original blog don’t really know if they pay income taxes or not.

“I created a preliminary test to help people figure out if they are in the 53%. Question 1: Are you a babysitter?”

Ylgesias notes on the “only 53% pay income taxes” number trending:

Most people think of the taxes that you pay when you “do your taxes” in April as being your income taxes. It is, in fact, a consolidated income tax and payroll tax. Thanks to some temporary tax cuts implemented during the recession, a very large share of American workers currently have only payroll tax liability rather than income tax liability. So through sleight of hand, you can convince many more than 53 percent of the people that they are part of the put-upon “53 percent” forced to bear the burden of a nation of slackers.

And a bonus Tumblr, for everyone who likes the overlap of hot girls and people that assert their First Amendment by protesting:

Hot Chicks of Occupy Wallstreet.
