Can we just appreciate that this bad ass president didn't die until 3 days after being shot. Zombie Lincoln for 2016

He was pronounced dead the morning after, but still a valid point.

(If you get the reference to a certain kind of Lincoln you're awesome.)

Im still not sure why some tumblr comments have hashtags. are they just trying to be cool? or does it make finding that comment easier?
User avatar #16 to #9 - Hreidmar (10/08/2013) [-]
I believe it's because they link their posts on other social media sites. It has a practical purpose, despite apparently common opinion that everyone on Tumblr sucks cock, etc etc.

It helps searching for comments by a particular subject.

Seeing as Dracula was written in 1897, after he asked "what's a movie" he'd probably ask "what's a vampire"
#32 to #31 - Crusader (10/08/2013) [-]
Because Dracula was the first vampire of course, it totally wasn't just a new story using old lore.
#33 to #32 - teranin (10/08/2013) [-]
Dracula POPULARIZED vampires. It is unlikely that an obscure romanian fairy tale based on an obscure dropped part of an apocryphal writing from the bible was something Lincoln had knowledge of pre-dracula without the benefit of internet.
User avatar #34 to #33 - Crusader (10/08/2013) [-]
Except it wasn't just Romanian.
Tales of Vampires or other undead monsters were common throughout the USA at that time (Mainly zombies, ghouls, etc.)
And lastly Lincoln was a scholarly man, he most likely would have some idea of what it was.
#36 to #34 - teranin (10/08/2013) [-]
Yes, Dracula is of course based on the Romanian legend, specifically. Which is based on millenia of various tales. However, the concept of vampires WAS NOT popularized in the united states until Dracula, with the exception of a few isolated cases of crazy people in New England in the 1890s (well after Lincoln's death).

Lincoln was a well-read man, but he was a lawyer and is best known for studying law, religion, and philosophy. He was not known for a predelection toward fictional novels, especially not superstitious flights of fancy. I'll admit, he certainly COULD have known what a vampire was, but that is not even remotely close to as likely as you are suggesting.

The literary vampire first appeared in 18th century poetry, before becoming one of the stock figures of gothic fiction with the publication of Polidori's The Vampyre (1819). Ripped right off wiki.
#44 to #38 - teranin (10/08/2013) [-]
yes, a british short story printed in a magazine. Surely, it pulled in a man who enjoyed reading Locke and Burke, it being printed in the country he lived in and presented in a highly intellectual light. Or, maybe, it's light, slow-building popularity outside of the united states during the later years of lincoln's life didn't draw his notice in the slightest. Now, if he had been alive when the play came out in 1920, maybe... But we know how his record is on plays.
User avatar #45 - thisistheguy (10/08/2013) [-]
Well it was based on a true story so I don't think he'd react that much
