A while ago, I decided to explore Pinterest, a site where people (mostly women) who like sharing things that other people make can share things with other people who like sharing things that other people make. In Part 1,¬† I got through the first column of interests and decided it wasn’t for me. However, I like to do a thorough investigation of things before I make up my mind. So, today, I’m going to torture myself some more complete my investigation by going through the second column of interests to see if there is anything worthwhile.

Humor

I like humor. I find things funny. I’ve also been told by people who are not me that they find me funny from time to time. Let’s see what the pin board has on the subject of humor:

Random Pinterest Sample:

some e card,

A some e card, Jennifer Lawrence (?), British accents, a not funny quote, a not funny Supreme Court justice, hacking candy (?), not funny Alabama

Am I missing something? I don’t find any of that remotely funny.

Illustrations & Posters

Uh oh. This one is probably going to annoy me since I do illustrations.

An advertisement for booze, paint swatches

An advertisement for booze, paint swatches, a Marshall amp, a Facebook cover, something Walt Disney, a beaded skull.

While the skull is actually pretty cool, that is not a poster nor an illustration and the rest of them are basically yawn.

Outdoors

As always, I’m afraid to look. There will probably be a bunch of pictures of living rooms if the rest of the categories are an indication.

Random Pinterest Sample:

a trailer shaped piggy bank.

A fox, 50 essential plants to know about, “hiding”, recoil, a trailer shaped piggy bank, vegetables that save you the most money to grow yourself.

Hm. Well, two of those things are actually useful: 50 plants for food and medicine and vegetables that save you the most money by growing them yourself. The rest, as expected, is mostly junk. Still, 2 useful things is more than I’ve found anywhere else on the site.

Photography

I like photography.

Random Pinterest Sample:

not a photo

A pasta recipe, huts on the sea, not a photo, not a photo, babies, lanterns, little girl.

Products

Eesh. I’m afraid of what’s in here.

Random Pinterest Sample:

A cereal bowl that keeps the cereal and milk separate (?), Game Boy coasters, a bluetooth shower speaker, a wreath, a corn cutter, houseboat, a vase, a camera.

As expected, nothing I would actually buy.

Quotes

I really don’t want to look at this category.

Random Pinterest Sample:

Yoko Ono and John Lennon, Jennifer Aniston, Breakfast Club. I didn't actually read and of these; I just wrote down the ones I recognized.

Science & Nature

I’m terrified of what Pinterest has labeled as Science…

Random Pinterest Sample:

A forest, a ring, Antelope Canyon, Greenland,  penguin, Iceland.

Fortunately, there’s not much science in there.

Technology

I love technology. I have a feeling I’m going to hate Pinterest technology though.

Random Pinterest Sample:

Hello Kitty toast, B2B marketing, a knife, a faux shrub AC concealer, sandless beach mat, printables to help blogging, high-tech furniture with built-in TV & computer, DIY Star Trek door.

It’s even worse than I would have figured. Hello Kitty toast?

Travel

sigh.

Random Pinterest Sample:

France, Scotland, Rome, Virginia, Norway, Indonesia.

France, Scotland, Rome, Virginia, Norway, Indonesia.

I’d like to go to any of those places (except Virginia – I’ve already spent too much time in Virginia).

Videos

I like videos.

Random Pinterest Sample:

Birthday card, Doctor Who, kettle bell workout, Iron Butterfly,"if guys were like girls" "France regulates light usage" (?), birthday cat.

Birthday card, Doctor Who, kettle bell workout, Iron Butterfly,”if guys were like girls” “France regulates light usage” (?), birthday cat.

Yay! I finished! I have made it through all of Pinterest’s major categories! I’m excited because that means I never have to visit that site again! Fuck you, Pinterest.

And that’s how I learned, once and for all, that my vagina, while practical and functional, is just not very social.
