Drawing is a hobby of mine so shoot me an ask if you got something simple in mind, and I'll probably draw it for you.
I also like science and occasionally help people with their calculus homework.
Also I'm Canadian, like 20ish, and am taking Mining Engineering, so except some geology stuff everywhere and if this blog goes dead I probably died in a mine.
HD drool never looked so good.
We’ll never look at dogs quite the same way again.
"According to reports, the sadly disfigured 26-year-old’s quality of life has been greatly diminished due to such a condition. Sources said the abnormal, visibly blemished creature has been repeatedly passed over for employment opportunities, frequently gawked at and harassed on the street by total strangers, and has faced near constant discrimination for over two decades, all due to the horrific and debilitating birth defect."
I fucking love Wonder Woman.
at a restaurant while u high like
"can i order this"
"would you like a soup or a salad?"
"WHATS A SUPER SALAD"
wasn’t it a matter of time though?
i think i’m missing something?
Okay so in the black community, when I woman wants to keep her hair from messing up, she wears a wrap. its a really hard trick if you arent used to it but thats beside the point. The next day, youre supposed to pull the pins out and style your hair appropriately. A wrap is only worn outside if you dont give a fuck about where you’re going.
A little while ago, Rihanna went to a red carpet event wearing a wrap, and (white) people took that as a new hairstyle, a fake pixie cut or whatever the hell they want to claim it as.
So now, here we are with white people thinking that a hair treatment method is a hair style.
Ida B. Wells did not die for this
I feel like I might get shit for this, but these are Puerto Rican women (as evidenced by their “Instituto de Banca” shirts - a tech school in Puerto Rico) donning el dubi-dubi, or ‘the wrap’. Latinas also do this, Puerto Ricans/Dominicans especially. There is no way we will ever think of it as a ‘new hairstyle’, you know? I have worn a dubi-dubi/wrap countless times, actually. The person who posted this on Instagram is an islander, and I think the commentary, if any, is supposed to be more about wearing the dubi-dubi in public, because that’s kind of a big deal on the island that you don’t leave the house wearing your dubi-dubi. I JUST had a conversation with my mother (who is straight from the island) about it the other day. It’s like an arbitrary etiquette thing, if you will. Like you don’t leave the house in rollers, that type of thing. I don’t think any of these women think of this as a new hairstyle (actually, if you’re a Puerto Rican woman from the island I know you don’t). Just a thought.
^same for Cuban women this is definitely not a new thing for afrolatinas and i’m pretty sure its the class taboo about showing it in public that’s being played with here
yeah, ive seen this going around w/ ppl getting mad and i was like, but clearly they’re……..so ok, im glad i was reading it correctly, lol. folks were just talking the other day on twitter how this is a pan-americas/caribbean/black diaspora thing.
I wish there was an express tampon/pad service, where if you were sitting around at home feeling disgusted with yourself because no transportation, -30C temperature, massive period, and NO SANITARY PRODUCTS, you could just ring someone up and be like “hey im making a mess over here can u bring me some tampons/pads pls” and they would be like “sure pal”. That’d be really good.
I guess my problems could be solved by getting into that diva cup/washable pad business but if you want me to be honest I’m a lazy fucker.
Essex social services obtained a High Court order against the woman that allowed her to be forcibly sedated and her child to be taken from her womb.
The council said it was acting in the best interests of the woman, an Italian who was in Britain on a work trip, because she had suffered a mental breakdown.
If you are not absolutely terrified and outraged by this you are wrong. The precedent this sets put every person on earth in danger.
oh my god read the article this is FUCKING HORRIFIC. she got back on her bipolar disorder medication and is in recovery but they won’t give her her child back “because of the risk she might relapse”. What you’re fucking saying with that is that mentally ill people shouldn’t even be allowed children even if they’re safe and well *just in case*, that we’re a permanent threat to ourselves and others even when we’re in treatment and recovery and living a stable life. I am FUCKING LIVID
Over a fucking panic attack. I’m fucking serious, all of this over a single panic attack. They took her baby in the most horrific way possible because she had a fucking panic attack.
From the Article:
She suffered a panic attack, which her relations believe was due to her failure to take regular medication for an existing bipolar condition.
It’s worth noting, that it’s very common for people on psychiatric medication to go off of their meds if they become pregnant, because of risk of side effects.
I bolded the above. I wanted there to be no one to think that she was being irresponsible for not haven taken her meds regularly. She did it for good reason, for the health of her own baby. And she got punished for it.
i fucking cant
So she did what was best for her kid, has ONE SINGLE PANIC ATTACK WHICH IS A THING THAT CAN HAPPEN TO ANYONE WHETHER THEY HAVE A MENTAL ILLNESS OR NOT and decide that they can literally violate her body in a horrific manner and take her kid away. But she’s the dangerous one.
Terribly sad. I hope this gets worked out in her benefit.
I can’t even imagine how terrifyingly awful that situation had to have been. Forcing a woman, against her will, to undergo sedation and then waking up in pain, without the fetus you’ve been carrying for 9 months? That’s beyond the pale. How much do the rights of an unborn fetus circumvent the rights of a full-grown adult? How much do we have to other the mentally ill, treating them (us) as less than human? She was literally treated like a breeding animal, with no cause of concern for her safety, mental health or well-being. Fuck. Fuck.
This is literally the stuff that horror movies are made of.
When K was relating this story to me, I couldn’t believe it until I read the article for myself. Have we really gotten to the point that a woman who, even just from the stress of being pregnant, has a panic attack can legally have her baby ripped out of her body and be thrown into a mental institution? Did we slip back into the 19th century, because I don’t recall any horse-drawn buggies going by outside.
This is why we need mental health reform. This is why we need women’s rights. This is why we need to treat fellow humans like fucking humans, not livestock to be cast aside when they seem a little “off.”
Neil Harbisson is the first person on the planet to have a passport photo that shows his cyborg nature — in his UK passport, he’s wearing a head-mounted device called an eyeborg. The color-blind artist says the eyeborg allows him to see color, and he wants to help other cyborgs like himself gain more rights.
Harbisson was born with a condition called achromatopsia, which means he sees everythingin shades of gray. It’s kind of like watching the world go by on a black-and-white monitor when everybody else has full color HD screens. He’s missing out on safety cues like the color of traffic lights, but more importantly he felt like he was missing an aesthetic sense of his environment. As an artist, he’s acutely aware of how aesthetics affect people’s moods and behavior — and so, nearly a decade ago, he set out to augment himself to see what other people see.
The result is that he sees in a way that nobody has seen before. His eyeborg attachment converts colors around him into soundwaves, which are transmitted to his inner ear via a vibration mechanism on the back of his skull. Essentially, Harbisson hears and feels colors:
"Each colour has a specific frequency that I can hear because of the Eyeborg. Infrared is the lowest sound and ultraviolet is the highest sound. I hear them through bone conduction. Basically, the sound goes to the back of the head and then my inner ear hears the different sine waves."
