This is so accurate. At school, we literally have children who will watch our facial expressions to see if them falling is as bad as they think it might be.
CORRECT CHILD INJURY PROCEDURE:
- do not react. at the most, maybe wince and go “ooooh”
- go over to the child to assess panic level and severity of injury
- if they’re like, dying, remain calm, but they’re probably not.
- look them in the eye and ask, “you okay?” they will nod. possibly all teary-eyed. then ask, “are we gonna need to cut it off?”
- the child is thrown off. if they giggle, you’re in the money. if they do not, put a bandaid on and do some sympathetic patting. they are probably a little teary. let the sad little bug sit out for a minute. they will quickly get bored.
- works every time
Eventually the 20th Century History class at Starfleet Academy stops being a fringey elective and becomes a required course, and all the cadets are like “this is so irrelevant, why do we have to learn this” and anyone who’s been around for a while is like “there is an 812% chance that you will time travel to the 20th century during your Starfleet career”
"but the temporal prime directive"
"At the very least you will get trapped a holodeck program based on the 20th century, and you will need to know all these weird idioms"
"But why is it only the 20th - "
"We don’t know why it’s only the 20th century we have a whole corps of scientists trying to figure out what’s happening with that it seriously makes no sense but in the meantime, knowing how to work a combustion engine is pretty much guaranteed to save your life so get the hell on that."
Tweet 1: I can see a lot of people either avoiding Plan B & ending up pregnant or attempting to take multiple doses & getting sick.
Tweet 2: anyone w a credit card (not everyone, I know) can/should use ella ella-rx.com they’ll ship it overnight $45
SIGNAL BOOST. Ella is another form of emergency contraception/the morning-after pill. It’s more effective than Plan B and can be taken up to FIVE DAYS after your mishap, rather than three days. Please spread this around; with all of the anti-choice legislation flying about and how difficult it can be for some people to get Plan B even OTC (like minors, people living in small towns, etc.), this might be the only way a lot of people can get their hands on the morning-after pill.
I’ve also read that Ella is more effective for plus size people.
This is important. Ella works for everyone. Plan B is not effective for people over 176 pounds. Protect yourself
Boosting the shit outta this.
hey collaterlysisters this smells a little like bullshit to me, could i get a second opinion
It’s 100% accurate: http://www.popsci.com/article/science/fyi-why-doesnt-plan-b-work-heavier-women
Ella still loses effectiveness beyond a certain weight; it’s just a higher threshold. I can’t recall the the exact number and am at work, and don’t have a moment to hunt the information down, but definitely thoroughly research Ella if you are choosing it due to the weight restrictions on Plan B’s effectiveness.
False rape accusations are an anomaly.
True rape accusations are a norm.
You’re, quite literally, more likely to be killed by a comet than falsely accused of rape.
Re-blog now, read later.
"Because 1 in 33 men will be raped in his lifetime, men are 82,000x more likely to be raped than falsely accused of rape. It seems many of us would do well to pay more attention to how rape culture affects us all than be paranoid about false accusers.”
"Coincidentally, my first lesson will be the same as all my other lessons. Now, repeat after me: Qui fugiebat rursus fugiet - or, in modern terms: He who fights and runs away, lives to flee another day.”
Wow, now I feel super-excited about the idea of a Discworld/Harry Potter crossover fanfic where Rincewind teaches the ill-fated DADA class. Heck, he’s so used to winding up in impossibly difficult situations and somehow surviving, he might actually become the first person to survive long enough to teach the class two years in a row (if it weren’t for the fact that he’d probably have fled Hogwarts long before then).
The other school staff might also have something to say about his insistence on referring to his new place of employment as Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizzardry. (Possibly even Wizzzardry.)
I feel that with Rincewind’s luck, taking on a job that is pretty definitely cursed would not be a great plan O.O
