Wild and Spicy Times Things Escalated Quickly

Yes, it’s true that it’s good for some things to go from zero to 100. A blender. A train. Your grades. The number in your bank account. Perhaps a President’s confidence ratings. In these particular cases, escalation is both accepted and welcome. But sometimes the upturn is unexpected, unsettling, or just plain bad. This is especially true when I’m PMSing and decide that my boyfriend isn’t paying enough attention to me, and he must pay. But strange and spicy escalation doesn’t just apply to moods. This kind of situation is very present on the internet. From weirdly dark tweets, to mind-boggling AskReddit responses, these memes and posts are a reminder that the world is full of some very strange and very creative people – who should maybe, just maybe, rein it in every now and then.
