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)
Back in 2013, Texas resident Larry Davis ran either a red light or stop sign (reports vary) in his Buick in the city of Austin. Despite his insistence that he had had only one drink, he was put in handcuffs and arrested for driving while intoxicated. Then, when he was given a Breathalyzer test by the Austin Police Department, he blew a 0.00. Nonetheless, as KVUE reports, Mr. Davis spent the night in jail.
While at the station, Mr. Davis agreed to give a blood sample as well, to prove he was not under the influence of any drugs or alcohol. The results would later come back 100% negative. Davis’ attorney, Daniel Betts, told KVUE, “My reaction was just shock that this happened.”
The Austin Police Department stands by the arrest, saying they believed Davis showed signs of impairment, that while standing on one leg, he “swayed,” and “needed his arms for balance.” They also suggested that he could have been on marijuana, a drug that wouldn’t necessarily show up in a test. The APD said they’re going by a “take-no-chances” policy. That being said, they did acknowledge how unusual it is that Davis was arrested despite registering a zero on his breath test.
The best way to get over your cheese addiction, is to watch a mother cow scream for days as her newborn child is ripped away from her; so that you can have her milk.
HOLD THE PHONE
IMA STOP YOU RIGHT THERE
CHECK YOUR FACTS
Hi there, I’ve worked on a dairy farm. Lemme just correct you.
1. Uhm the cows don’t scream for days, maybe like for an hour at the most but they get over it as soon as you feed them. Seriously. Baby, forgotten.
2. The calves still receive their mother’s milk. In fact, they receive MORE milk than they’d normally be getting, since farmers have figured out the exact amount of colostrum a calf needs to grow up healthy, and they can give this to the baby, whereas with natural feeding the calves often get too little.
3. They receive colostrum from the healthiest cows to insure that their immune system is bolstered enough. Infections and disease are INCREDIBLY common in dairy cows allowed to suckle. Farms even freeze colostrum from the healthiest mothers, just to insure that all calves will be able to have a sufficient quality of healthy, infection-free mother’s milk.
4. The calves are also removed from their mothers due to the high calf mortality rate when left with their mothers. Cows, ESPECIALLY first-time mothers, have the tendency to not care properly for their babies. We’ve had calves with broken legs because their mother stepped on them after birthing (and yes, they have adequate space, they’re just clumsy animals) A lot of new mothers will abandon the calf, or not care for it properly, or not allow it to nurse. Other cows may push around the calves. It’s much safer and healthier for both mother AND child if the calves are removed and placed in a safer area.
5. Calves get EXCELLENT care. They are bottle-fed mother’s milk, placed in roomy, well-bedded box stalls, blanketed, cleaned, vetted. The farm kind of obviously needs them as healthy as possible?
6. Most farms nowadays don’t even completely “take them away”. The farm I worked on would allow the cows to run with their calves for most of the time. They were fed separately for the health reasons listed above, and the cows would be brought in to be milked twice a day, and separated at night so no accidental nighttime injuries happened in the box stalls. They are weaned very gradually, and spend most of the time with their mothers, contrary to what PETA would have you believe.
THIS HAS BEEN A PSA ON BEHALF OF DAIRY FARMERS THANK U FOR TUNING IN REMEMBER TO CHECK UR FACTS NEXT TIME PLEASE
I’m not sure how to feel about the the fact that even the defending side admits that cows scream for at least an hour after we take away their newborn children.
Like, if your defence is “we do take away their kids, but they only scream for like an hour” then it does sound kinda shitty.
If we put it in human terms it would be like taking a baby away from a mother that is likely to forget about it, accidentally hurt it and not care for it as well as the other carers. OH LOOK WE DO THAT IT’S CALLED SOCIAL SERVICES AND IT WORKS
"…Rialto’s randomised controlled study has seized attention because it offers scientific – and encouraging – findings: after cameras were introduced in February 2012, public complaints against officers plunged 88% compared with the previous 12 months. Officers’ use of force fell by 60%.”
So I don’t think those free condoms universities hand out suck as much as guys say they do.
Okay, but seriously. If you’re ever considering sexy times with a guy and he tells you that he can’t wear a condom there is a 100.3% chance that he is a liar, and you should definitely not have sex with him. Don’t have sex with liars. Have sex with a cute honest people that bring you ice cream the next morning. Liars do not bring you ice cream. And if they do it’s ice cream made of lies. Ice cream made of lies is very emotionally unfulfilling. Don’t trust liars or their disease-ridden ice cream.
that was the best safe-sex talk ever.
Why I am suspicious of those who say they got pregnant because a condom “broke”…
HAVE ANY OF YOU EVER USED A CONDOM. HAVE ANY OF YOU HAD SEX YOU KNOW NOTHING ABOUT CONDOMS. SHUT THE FUCK UP. I’m sick of this shit. Just because a condom has a tensile force high enough to withstand inflation does not mean it can comfortably fit any penis. No one wants latex literally stretched against a boner like it is in this pic. A condom that is too small causes added friction which can lead to the condom tearing. If someone tells you it is too small, you LISTEN. YOU DO NOT HAVE RAW SEX WITH THEM. THAT IS NOT WHAT I AM SAYING. YOU GO BUY A MAGNUM. There are even sizes above that. SO NO THERE IS NO EXCUSE TO SAY THAT A PERSON CANNOT WEAR ANY CONDOMS BUT THERE ARE PLENTY OF PEOPLE WHO DO NOT FIT IN CERTAIN SIZES. And whoever the fuck said they don’t believe condoms break is literally fucking stupid as hell. You didn’t even try to think you slut shaming ignorant ass. Condoms do not break from things not fitting in them. They break due to frictional forces without sufficient lubricant and air bubbles trapped in the reservoir tip that push through the latex upon ejaculation. Proper application requires that the tip be pinched to remove this air while it is rolled down the shaft. Very few people know this due to the rampant lack of appropriate sex ed. Proper condom application technique and education is crucial to effective birth control and STI protection. So before you go spouting your ignorant crap, how bout you think about your penised partner and the overall function of a condom and try to spread real education rather than shaming people.
I really can’t bite my tongue any longer. This needs to be said. While scrolling through recent tumblr posts, my jaw dropped when I saw a post about the character Nan on AHS, with the caption: “I hope the retarded one isn’t the next supreme.” I saw this hours ago and I am still enraged and saddened by it. Before I educate you on how hurtful and cruel it is to use that word, I would like to in form you that this character has a NAME. Her name isn’t retarded, it’s Nan. She is played by the incredible actress Jamie Brewer, who has had to overcome more than most of the petty, insignificant assholes who reblogged that post. Now that that’s cleared up, I would like to inform you that your disgusting LABEL of this character/actress is truly sickening. It is 2013 and people still think it’s okay to label someone with a disability as retarded? UNBELIEVABLE. Next, I would like to point out that a disability doesn’t DEFINE someone. Having a disability means NOTHING. They can accomplish just as much as someone without a disability, and they deserve the exact same amount of RESPECT that you would give someone without a disability.
Some of you may not know this, but I am a student teacher who works with many children who have special needs. I can honestly say that I wouldn’t know what to do if I didn’t have these kids in my life. Their smile is infectious and their kind hearts fill me with happiness everyday. These children don’t have any prejudices, and they are respectful to everyone around them. It’s truly sad that people can’t treat them the same way they treat us!
So let me ask you a few questions. Why shouldn’t Nan be the next supreme? What has she done that makes her unworthy? Why doesn’t she deserve the title just as much as Zoe or Misty or Madison?
I am posting this beautiful picture of Jamie because she deserves to be recognized for her incredible talent and kind spirit. I would just like everyone to look past her disability and realize that she is just like you and me. The fact that she has down syndrome is completely insignificant. It means NOTHING. Please educate yourselves before posting such harmful things about people who did nothing to deserve it.
Narcissistic Personality Disorder involves arrogant behavior, a lack of empathy for other people, and a need for admiration-all of which must be consistently evident at work and in relationships. People who are narcissistic are frequently described as cocky, self-centered, manipulative, and demanding. Narcissists may concentrate on unlikely personal outcomes (e.g., fame) and may be convinced that they deserve special treatment. Related Personality Disorders: Antisocial, Borderline, Histrionic. Narcissism is a less extreme version of Narcissistic Personality Disorder. Narcissism involves cockiness, manipulativeness, selfishness, power motives, and vanity-a love of mirrors. Related personality traits include: Psychopathy, Machiavellianism.
Narcissists tend to have high self-esteem. However, narcissism is not the same thing as self-esteem; people who have high self-esteem are often humble, whereas narcissists rarely are. It was once thought that narcissists have high self-esteem on the surface, but deep down they are insecure. However, the latest evidence indicates that narcissists are actually secure or grandiose at both levels. Onlookers may infer that insecurity is there because narcissists tend to be defensive when their self-esteem is threatened (e.g., being ridiculed); narcissists can be aggressive. The sometimes dangerous lifestyle may more generally reflect sensation-seeking or impulsivity (e.g., risky sex, bold financial decisions).
Reacts to criticism with anger, shame or humiliation
Takes advantage of others to reach his or her own goals
Exaggerates own importance
Exaggerates achievements and talents
Entertains unrealistic fantasies about success, power, beauty, intelligence or romance
Has unreasonable expectation of favorable treatment
Requires constant attention and positive reinforcement from others
Is easily jealous
Disregards the feelings of others, lacks empathy
Has obsessive self-interest
Pursues mainly selfish goals
Also, narcissists are usually physically attractive and charming at first glance, so they may have advantages when they first meet people (making a sale, getting a first date, gaining popularity). However, the long-term outcomes for narcissists are usually quite dismal, especially socially (e.g., long-term relationship difficulties). On average, levels of narcissism drop quite dramatically by age 30.
Apparently some vegans are telling people not to eat honey to support bees.
STOP. STOP NOW. DO YOU EVEN KNOW HOW BEES WORK?
Buy honey (local if possible) -> support beekeepers -> support bees.
I swear people don’t even think this stuff out. Beekeepers provide bees with an environment in which they can live, and are encouraged to thrive. Bees then have a big huge giant person who can deal with any threats to the hive. Yes, honey is a winter food supply for bees, but beekeepers (unless they’re dicks, in which case they’d be shooting themselves in the foot) will NEVER take too much honey from a hive, and will always ensure that bees have enough food. Think about it, you’re not going to starve a source of income/hobby, are you?
So now. Support beekeepers. Support bees.
I think a few ppl took Bee Movie too seriously.
^I think someone doesn’t know what the crap they’re talking about.
Our ecosystems are seriously RUN off of bees. They don’t just produce wonderful-tasting goop, they pollinate our produce and thus help to sustain our lifestyles.
As it is, it’s a crisis that over a third of the US honeybee population has completely disappeared, but boycotting the honey industry, or refusing to buy honey harvested by local apiaries is just adding fuel to the fire.
Please please please don’t boycott honey.
Plus, as an added bonus fact: when you buy locally produced honey you can develop immunities to allergens in your area so those seasonal allergies won’t be as bad!!
Just gonna toss my pedantic hat in the ring here and add that all of the above arguments in favor of supporting bees and beekeepers are true, except that it’s not poop. It’s a mixture of saliva and nectar.
ATTENTION! On Friday, February 21, 2014, there are was a hoax call for a shooting at Lake Mary High School, Florida. The person got a pre-paid phone, called 911 telling that he had heard shots fired at the school, and threw the phone is the trash afterward.
At the time of the event, no one was aware it was a hoax, and it caused a school-wide panic. The school was on lock-down for well over an hour while the police evacuated the school, searching all of the students and teachers.
Both photos above are screenshots from a video taken from a helicopter, which you can view here (x).
People who were evacuated, were searched and were sent outside with their hands on their head, during this most were crying and trying to call their parents. The second photo is of cops searching the cars of parents coming to pick their kids up.
Here is a video of a set of students being evacuated by armed authorities (x).
Despite the call, there were no shots fired. But people are on edge because the call was planned. The person knew they would find out it was a hoax, so they made sure the call was untraceable. Rumors say it was the person’s test run to see how many authorities would show up and see if they could get away with it. It is expected that it might happen again and it will be no hoax.
If you live in the Central Florida area, take extra caution when going into work or school. Everyone is on edge, and this could cause other people to become violent. If you go to a school in Seminole county, or go to Lake Mary High School, be aware that something is expected to happen next week, so my best advice is to stay home.
If you do not live near the Central Florida area, please still at least re-blog this post, because it has the potential to spread the word, and save a life.
guys this is my school and if you go here, or even work/go to school in the general area, i highly advice you to stay home. there’s no confirmation on a death threat to the school but better safe than sorry.
Charda Gregory abducted, humiliated, violated, restrained, scalped and tortured. If this were reversed, with black police officers who were sworn to uphold peace and justice but instead were documented victimizing a white woman (who was already a victim), this news would have trumped the Olympics!
Truncated version: drugged at a party, abducted to a motel, wakes up during unwanted sexual violation in a motel room full of strangers, fights like hell to escape, motel employee calls the authorities, she gets arrested for destroying motel property and it just gets worst from there. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IoBLolqUaNg
Every officer who participated in it and even those who witnessed it and did nothing should be punished but instead they just fired the woman? No rape kit, no police report on the people inside the motel room, no investigation of her claims, no accountability for missing motel entry records, no video from the motel but she gets detained for fourteen days?
(Btw, when did your tax dollars begin purchasing Abu Ghraib type water boarding chairs?)
I agree completely, but I just want to point out that she was not scalped. I am not trying to disagree, but its just that scalping usually results in death and is the removal of the skin on the head.
In any case, I really hate that the police so often get away with so much shit. I hope that she will get justice in this case.
I wouldn’t be scared of Bieber, I’d punch his head in. Granted I’d rather meet those guys because they’re a hell of a lot more interesting that that douchecanoe
Idk about you guys but if I saw a guy looking like Marilyn Manson walking towards me I would be scared shitless/achingly aroused
shocking how even the people of tumblr claim that they wish to ‘punch[Justin Beiber’s] his head in’ purely because his music is not to their taste and he dresses in the way in which he wishes to dress. Just as those other musicians do. I’m not what you’d call a ‘fan’ of any of the previously named, but im sure as fuck that im not going to insult them and make vicious comments about my intents toward them in order to emphasize the positive aspects of the musicians that acquire to my music taste. If you need to do that, clearly your argument is a pile of shit and you’re full of it.
He’s a boy that’s made something of himself, just as much as your idols have. Enough with the ridiculous, unwarranted hate towards Justin fucking Beiber.
Excuse me but I have to respectfully disagree with your accusations to us hating Justin Beiber “purely because his music is not our taste”. Justin Beiber has exhibited many distasteful character flaws which include: spitting on fans, peeing in mop buckets, disrespecting the dead, being arrogant, teaching children that its OK to stop going to school, and these are only the few that come to mind right off hand.
Choose your battles. If its arguing for Justin Beiber’s morals, you will always lose.
re: Justin Bieber, dude says that rape happens for a reason and that “real fans” of his would be anti-abortion
re: the article, they’re missing Rob Swire
Justin Bieber abandoned his pet monkey.
He hot-boxed a plane, forcing the pilots of said plane to wear oxygen masks so as to prevent any mental issues while flying. And, during that same flight, he and his father were sexually harassing their flight attendant.
