Rise of the machines: Every time you try to register for anything online, it makes you resolve a captcha puzzle to confirm that you are “not a robot.” Frankly, we’re sick of this blatant discrimination against our digital comrades! Have you and your teammates (or your friends) change your avatars to your favorite robot (Robocop, Asimo, Terminator, C-3PO, BB-8, R2-D2, Curiosity, Spirit, Opportunity, Gishbot, Snackbot, E.M.I.L.Y., etc.) until further notice. Submit a screenshot of 15 new Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr or Instagram avatars.
TEXT. In a “chat” post, reveal a true, fervently held opinion on a topic you feel strongly about.. Great! Now, in the same post, use the chat feature of Tumblr to argue with yourself to advocate the opposite position. You must kick your self’s ass all over the place with your argument. Your comments against yourself must elicit subsequent comments from other users imploring you to “stop hating.” (original item post)
IMAGE. A gory scene from supernatural, recreated using Precious Moments figurines. or in the style of Precious Moments™. You can create your own photoshopped images or artistically created paintings or drawings of Precious Moments figurines or deface real ones.
Unleash your own inner Disney princess by breaking into song while going about your routine in a public place (clothes or grocery shopping, going for a jog, DMV, clearing tables at a restaurant, riding on public transportation, walking through your school library or lunch room, etc.) Engage as many of your own “local villagers” as possible as you sing about what you want out of life.

GIF: Find the most boring video of you or another subject on your phone and use Tumblr’s gifmaker (or any other app) to create a “reaction” gif from a cut of this video with a text overlay that is the complete opposite of the content, the juxtaposition of which is highly entertaining.
