Well, I’m going to go to the Edmonton Comic Expo in Sept. I’m soo excited! Jim Beaver, Mads Mikkelsen, Doug Jones, Alice Cooper, Simon Helberg, Kunal Nayyar, and soo many more are going to be there!
I’m soo excited!
I’ve never gone to a Comic Expo before, so I’m a little nervous. I got my brother to come with me. Which is nice because I plan on getting in line really early and I don’t want to be by myself. I’m going to get Autographs, pictures and videos. Seriously, I’ve already have a check list made out.
I’ll make sure to post up all my pictures after the Expo.
Because fat jokes are as awesome as rapey vampire jokes.
it’s not a fat joke he’s an actual elephant you idiot
from the show:
srsly, one of the best sight gags they’ve ever done
even if you know nothing about Hinduism, how do you not remember this?
I wanted to make I post I could link too whenever someone asks me this~
Seriously. Even if I was hella in shape, really healthy, no one would be asking for health or work out tips from me if I was fat. Stop assuming because someone looks like what society deems as ‘healthy’ or ‘fit’ that they are, it’s a lie, they are try to sell you things and make you hate and judge strangers. Stop buying into it.I love this so much, I have no words.
THANK you! Cause no one listens when a fat person tries to explain this.
I noticed, I’ve seen several fat people make a great posts about this, only to see their inbox being blown up with ‘YOU’RE JUST MAKING EXCUSES!’ it’s disgusting because it has absolutely nothing to do with the persons health and it’s fucked up to hid behind that bullshit faux concern because someone isn’t killing themselves to fit into what is considered ideal to make someone else more comfortable in consuming them as a product rather then treat them as a person.
reading the news and I CAN’T BELIEVE an Arizona gun instructor let a NINE YEAR OLD GIRL shoot a UZI MACHINE GUN (she lost control of it and a round killed the instructor) :-/ was just talking to my dad about it (former military dude) and he says even for soldiers Uzis are dangerous because…
Britain’s first black marchioness
This is: Emma McQuiston
And as that says, she’s this first black marchioness Britain has ever had.
But she’s not the only black royal
but THIS IS A BIG DEAL.
plus she’s getting snubbed like big time. The groom’s father didn’t even come. And she said things like:
“she has been snubbed by the British elite because of her ethnicity and background”
SO REBLOG IT, CAUSE SHE’S GORGEOUS AND EVERYONE SHOULD LOVE HER.
During the Bubonic Plague, doctors wore these bird-like masks to avoid becoming sick. They would fill the beaks with spices and rose petals, so they wouldn’t have to smell the rotting bodies.
A theory during the Bubonic Plague was that the plague was caused by evil spirits. To scare the spirits away, the masks were intentionally designed to be creepy.
Mission fucking accomplished
Okay so I love this but it doesn’t cover the half of why the design is awesome and actually borders on making sense.
It wasn’t just that they didn’t want to smell the infected and dead, they thought it was crucial to protecting themselves. They had no way of knowing about what actually caused the plague, and so one of the other theories was that the smell of the infected all by itself was evil and could transmit the plague. So not only would they fill their masks with aromatic herbs and flowers, they would also burn fires in public areas, so that the smell of the smoke would “clear the air”. This all related to the miasma theory of contagion, which was one of the major theories out there until the 19th century. And it makes sense, in a way. Plague victims smelled awful, and there’s a general correlation between horrible septic smells and getting horribly sick if you’re around what causes them for too long.
You can see now that we’ve got two different theories as to what caused the plague that were worked into the design. That’s because the whole thing was an attempt by the doctors to cover as many bases as they could think of, and we’re still not done.
The glass eyepieces. They were either darkened or red, not something you generally want to have to contend with when examining patients. But the plague might be spread by eye contact via the evil eye, so best to ward that off too.
The illustration shows a doctor holding a stick. This was an examination tool, that helped the doctors keep some distance between themselves and the infected. They already had gloves on, but the extra level of separation was apparently deemed necessary. You could even take a pulse with it. Or keep people the fuck away from you, which was apparently a documented use.
Finally, the robe. It’s not just to look fancy, the cloth was waxed, as were all of the rest of their clothes. What’s one of the properties of wax? Water-based fluids aren’t absorbed by it. This was the closest you could get to a sterile, fully protecting garment back then. Because at least one person along the line was smart enough to think “Gee, I’d really rather not have the stuff coming out of those weeping sores anywhere on my person”.
So between all of these there’s a real sense that a lot of real thought was put into making sure the doctors were protected, even if they couldn’t exactly be sure from what. They worked with what information they had. And frankly, it’s a great design given what was available! You limit exposure to aspirated liquids, limit exposure to contaminated liquids already present, you limit contact with the infected. You also don’t give fleas any really good place to hop onto. That’s actually useful.
Beyond that, there were contracts the doctors would sign before they even got near a patient. They were to be under quarantine themselves, they wouldn’t treat patients without a custodian monitoring them and helping when something had to be physically contacted, and they would not treat non-plague patients for the duration. There was an actual system in place by the time the plague doctors really became a thing to make sure they didn’t infect anyone either.
These guys were the product of the scientific process at work, and the scientific process made a bitchin’ proto-hazmat suit. And containment protocols!
reblogging for the sweet history lesson
Remember IT IS NOT A WOMAN’S RESPONSIBILITY TO PREVENT RAPE. In the world we live in, however, women should be empowered with any tools in order to protect themselves. Source for more facts follow NowYouKno
i think the best but also saddest thing about this is that MEN created this product to protect women from MEN
But he can’t have em, not today, not ever! XD
Love Mark’s quotes!
Mark’s quotes about the bunny were the best! XD And that Bonnie is my favorite animatronic psychopath. If you haven’t seen Mark play this game, you should, his commentary alone is hilarious! Can’t wait for the sequel to the game.
Congratulations for finally beating the game! :)
