That cherry tree thing is a myth, for those that didn't know.


No1ofIntrst

But the minecraft isn’t


DERPSQUID9

Of course not.


justapassingguy

I don't even know the story. I know that the guy from your money did chop a tree one day, but what's the deal with that?


rebel-and-astunner

Iirc, the story is like Washington chopped down his dad's cherry tree, he was like "wtf happened to my tree" and Washington was like "yeah that's my bad" and the father was happy he was honest about it


justapassingguy

Huh TIL... Who would've think that Mr. Washington is also the founding father of the "LOL So Random" culture


pistonpython1

Yo, its a myth but its also code. Why would Washington chop down a random tree? Chopping down a cherry tree was code for 'popping a girl's cherry' back then.


Burritozi11a

I ain't even gonna try to unpack that


LegoCactus

Wait, what? Do you have a source for that?


pistonpython1

I have no sources to back that up at the moment, but lets think through this. Why would Washington cut down a tree? Firewood, or maybe some other 1700's reason maybe, but that does not explain why he would need to come clean about it to his dad. If he needed to come clean about it to his dad, it was probably a mistake or something he decided to do in the heat of the moment (such as banging some 1776 lady). If I fucked with my parents garden then admitted to doing so in the 21st century, I would not be lauded as some great truth teller as Washington was. Clearly his apology for his actions represented something larger than "I killed a tree", otherwise it would not have been so important. There was no such thing as conservation in the 1700's (that I am aware of at least). So why would Washington's father care about the tree? Even if he did for sentimental reasons, what scenario can you imagine where Washington had to cut down THAT tree? And why did it have to be a cherry tree?

So is the Revolutionary War. We just kind of edited the Brits' maps and snuck away.

Minecraft inflation art? No, Washington was obviously into vore.


goblin_lookalike

damn you even noticed the lack of periods


MurdoMaclachlan

TBH at this point, when I'm transcribing I often see the individual characters more than properly process the words or sentences, so it didn't really register that there weren't any. I don't know if that's concerning or not :P
