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.


I just love that this post happened to find the ONE HUMAN ON THE INTERNET who had the answer to this question

I love ginkgoes. They are such neat trees. Their flat, bifurcated leaves are unmistakeable with their parallel venation and fan-like shape. The coolest thing about ginkgoes is how old they are. They arose in the hey day of the seed ferns, long before flowering plants come onto the scene. Fossils of identifiable ginkgo-like relatives date all the way back to the Permian, some 270 million years ago. In fact, ginkgoes were long thought to be extinct until a few very small populations were found growing in remote areas of China. Whether or not these represent wild populations or forests cultivated for 1000’s of years by monks is still up for debate. At least one population is believed to be wild, hanging on in a historical glacial refugia in the mountains.Another cool thing about ginkgoes is how they reproduce. Ginkgo trees are either male or female. The males produce cone-like structures. The pollen contains mobile sperm with flagella, a characteristic only present in cycads, ferns, and mosses. The sperm are carried on the wind where they land on the female ovules and swim to the egg in order to complete fertilization. These similarities with the basal plant lineages is a clue to the classification of ginkgoes in the greater scheme of life on this planet. The fact that they do not produce actual fruit makes them morphologically a type of gymnosperm, but that is about as certain as experts are at this point. The outer shell of the seed is fleshy and full of butyric acid, which causes them to smell like rancid butter or vomit. It can be overwhelming, which is why most people prefer to plant male trees.
