Mastodon is like that thing in pre-school where everyone holds the rainbow colored tarp thing and you throw it up and run inside

@ldopa IDK WHAT THE POINT OF THAT THING WAS BUT IT WAS SUPER FUN

@yo @ldopa super fun, coordinated activity - used for gym classes mostly. get kids to work together, follow directions, have fun, and wear them out.

@gzt @ldopa WE NEED AN ADULT VERSION THAT DOESNT INVOLVE TAXES

@yo @gzt yeah that’s what I’m saying mastodon is :p

@ldopa I have never done it and never saw it done! But my pre-school was in Russia

@Gargron is it too cold? I imagine Russia covered in snow year round

@Gargron @ldopa They're called parachutes, and it was definitely the highlight of gym class for me growing up! :heart_parrot: Here's a video of a class playing with one: youtu.be/uTrC4flY7Co

@ldopa @Gargron ours wasn't rainbow coloured and now i have questions about my old school 🤔

@ldopa I've worked in education for 15 years and have no idea what the point of that was.

@cambrian_era @ldopa I don’t know either but it was a lot more fun than any team sport they ever tried to teach us

@ldopa that was called parachute play (we literally used an old parachute) at my school and I’ll have you know we did that right up through sixth grade

@ldopa It was offset by the awful / weird old record they would sometimes play and make us not-quite-dance along to. All I remember about it was one part where the record said "cool wave!" and everyone was supposed to do this stupid jazz-hands move and we all hated it.

@ldopa what happens underneath? you have to click show more to know

@ldopa
I am, too. This seems to happen relatively seldom on Mastodon, in comparison to Tumblr, where we can still see "Do you love the colour of the sky?" reblogged at least once a year and joke parodies of it at least once a month.
Your post delighted me from the first readthrough and I'm glad it is thriving!

For me personally, it just evoked a rather lovely childhood memory in a very visual way, and also I think the analogy is valid.

You have done well...not only in this, but yeah, good work!! <3

@fountainofwonder that’s very true, the memes here move so quickly that posts don’t usually having staying power.

I am glad it seems to have connected with so many people! Thank you! :)

@ldopa oh shit i remember those in primary school! it was so much fun and i don't know why it was
