The Human Library is a global movement
for social change where ‘readers’ across
the world can ‘check out’ human ‘books’
to tell them stories about their lives. It
was designed to encourage positive
conversations that can help challenge
common prejudices and stereotypes. Source

what happened in roughly 1870 though

why was there temporary internet

with a few people searching for pokemon?

It’s a search of Google books, but the question still stands, what the Fuck happened in 1870

I CAN ANSWER THIS!!

In the Cornish dialect of English, Pokemon meant ‘clumsy’ (pure coincidence).

In the mid 1800s there was a surge of writing about the Cornish language and dialect in an attempt to preserve them with glossaries and dictionaries being written. I wrote about it HERE.
