I gathered a compilation of interesting facts from various books I’ve read:

  1. It was previously thought that newborn babies weren’t conscious and couldn’t feel pain. So often circumcisions and surgery would be performed without any anesthesia. 
  2. The popular theory with consciousness and fetuses is that the fetus is sedated in the womb. They are bathed in a fluid that contains natural anesthetics and sleep inducing chemicals. 
  3. Locked in syndrome is when a person is completely aware but can’t move any part of their body except for their eyes. 
  4. Using transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS), researchers have been able to induce hallucinations in people, such as making them think they have smelled burnt toast or moved their arm when they really haven’t
  5. Psychosomatic is when a mental factor produces physical effects. The most bizarre, is pseudocyesis or when one starts to exhibits symptoms of pregnancy even though they really aren’t pregnant. 
  6. The thalamus and prefrontal cortex of the brain are thought to be vital for consciousness
  7. Your consciousness can only register one item at a time. Sure you can hold a baby and read a book at the same time, but usually one of the tasks will require less attention and be automatic (holding a baby). Think of it this way, you can’t read two books at the same time can you?

Hope you learned something!

That was my exact reaction when I read that to be honest

like, i guess this isnt even a particularly “”“adult”“” blog but theres something very unnerving about clicking through to a new follower and seeing “age: 14” on the sidebar.

who cares lmfao!!!!

What did they tell him!!! What can we tell him to make him cry harder

OKAY, HOLD THE FUCK UP.

THIS IS WHAT THE MEDIA DOES TO POSTS AND SUCH.

YOU PEOPLE ARE LAUGHING AT THIS MAN. WHY. BECAUSE HE WAS BROUGHT TO TEARS? I’M SURE IF THIS MAN WAS GAY, YOU’D BE ALL OVER IT.

YOU’RE NOT GETTING THE WHOLE STORY.

THIS MAN ASKED HIS FOLLOWERS ON SOCIAL MEDIA A QUESTION WHEN HE SAW THAT HE HAD QUITE A LOT OF LGBT FOLLOWERS. HE SAID, “IF YOU COULD CHOOSE WHETHER TO BE GAY OR STRAIGHT, WHICH WOULD YOU CHOOSE?”

AND THE RESPONSES MOVED HIM. THEY FUCKING MOVED HIM. THAT’S WHY HIS CRYING. I’M SORRY, BUT IF YOU PEOPLE ARE GOING TO SHIT ON HIM WITHOUT GETTING THE WHOLE STORY, I CAN’T TALK TO YOU.

HIS QUOTES ARE LITERALLY:

"Sorry, guys… It’s just… It’s sad."

"So, don’t take my word for any of this. Listen to them."

"And if you think being Gay is a choice, and you want to hide behind the Bible, show me the verse where God says being gay is a choice."

HERE IS THE ARTICLE

AND HERE IS THE VIDEO

I, AS A LESBIAN, AM FUCKING DISAPPOINTED IN YOU PEOPLE WHO ARE GIVING HIM SHIT.

IN THE VIDEO,

HE FUCKING SAYS “This video is about a kid who came out to his parents, and their… Their response was horrific.”

THIS MAN IS SOMEONE WHO CARES

AND THIS MAN IS SOMEONE YOU’RE HATING ON .

-

GET THE WHOLE FUCKING STORY BEFORE YOU DECIDE WHO YOU INSULT. AND, MOST OF ALL, JUST KEEP YOUR SHIT TO YOURSELF UNLESS YOU’RE 100% SURE YOU WANT TO SAY IT. 

/// rant over.

What are a band geek’s work hours?


8 to 5.

This would imply band kids have time to do things other than band and  that’s just not true.
