So I have been having something of an emotional wibble this evening, for various reasons, most of which probably tie into stress. Anyway. So what do I do to try and chill out? Watch two of the most emotionally crippling episodes of Band of Brothers.
Seizure First Aid.
Learn it. Share it. Know it. Use it.
100% correct medical information on tumblr for once; also consider calling 911 if you don’t know how often the person has seizures and ESPECIALLY if the seizure has lasted 5 minutes or more (which is why the watch is critical)
This is so important!
WHERE are they getting this stuff !!
oh thank god you interrupted it
See this guy? This is astronaut Ron McNair, and he was awesome.
In 1959, when he was nine-years-old, he single-handedly desegregated a South Carolina library by going in, picking some books, trying to check them out, and refusing to leave until he could take the books with him.
He went on to be a physicist and became the second African American in space when he flew on STS-41-B aboard Challenger in 1984.
When he was selected for STS-51-L, which was to be his second mission, a special piece of music was composed for him to play on his saxophone for what would have been the first original piece of music recorded in space.
McNair tragically died in 1986 when the shuttle disintegrated seconds after lift-off, claiming the lives of all seven members of the Challenger
"this baby came out of you but im not 100% sure its yours"
the answer is because of misandry :(
you guys are making fun, but look at this person. the black semi-military clothes, the relaxed deathhawk, they obviously come from the grim cyberpunk future where this is a legitimate question
Also, women do sometimes have to have DNA testing for that exact purpose. This is how the Lydia Fairchild chimerism case was discovered.
Oh my god
can you IMAGiNE walking in to something like this?
So my school put on a Silent Disco once, and it was one of the most hilarious experiences of my life. Admittedly it is probably slightly different in that everyone just downloaded a play list and we all tried to start them at the exact same second. But that didn’t work so we all danced to the music and it was fine, but like, people would start dancing crazy for sudden song dynamic shifts that you hadn’t gotten to yet, and just… it was hilarious.
But the best part really is taking your headphones off, especially during a song that everyone knows. Because everyone is singing and yelling to the song and without the music there, they sound like a bunch of drunk, yowling cats. It’s awful and hilarious.
The rest of the world doesn’t have silent discos?
Silent discos are amaaaaaazing. I went to one once and they handed out headphones that were connected to three different DJs, so you could just switch DJs whenever you wanted to. And it’s great because if you ever want to talk to someone you can just take your headphones off and there won’t be loud booming music.
oh my GOD
I CAN’T BELIEVE PEOPLE DON’T KNOW ABOUT SILENT DISCOS DOES THE REST OF THE WORLD LIVE UNDER A ROCK OR SOMETHING
My friend went to one when he was in England for like a month.
Do I smell a class fundraiser?
OH MY GOD WHY DON’T WE DO THIS
WHY HAVE I NEVER HEARD OF THIS
of course no one heard of silent discos. they’re silent
Silent! At the disco
You can also have multiple DJ’s and a switch on the headphones, so the same group of people can listen to three different DJ’s.
My knees are still fucked. My arms are all tight down the forearms and weak from carrying heavy-ass plates all the way to the gardens and back for 8 hours after a whole winter of not having to do that. My knees are fucked. My shoulders ache, probably from aforementioned plates (seriously, those plates are fucking heavy. Slap a 14oz steak or a mixed grill on them, and you’ve got impressive weight right there). I’m dehydrated. Did I mention my knees are fucked?
I really don’t think I can do today.
I found caffeine made everything better when I worked for ‘spoons. Or at least tolerable. Granted, they decided I wasn’t cut out for the job at the end of the probation period (and I agreed), but 60p cans of Monster helped so much. Also granted, I am a horrible caffeine fiend, so this may just be me being a pusher. In which case I am sorry.
A workable fuck-ton of male archery references (per request).
[Please note that the top two images of the white statues are for weaker bows; typically, the bow will have a stronger pull weight. The front arm would be fully extended and straight, and the hand gripping the arrow would not be pinching the arrow itself.]
