"they'll sweetly drown you if you get too close"

Let’s play a game called “I’m totally joking, but would do that in a heartbeat if you were into it”

Each week a woman in Hampshire, England, suspends two coconuts on string from a washing line and watches the squirrels go crazy, according to Sky News.

She said: “I make a large hole in the coconut so that they can get into the flesh. The first time I saw them feeding I nearly died laughing, they looked just like a pair of spacemen.

Tapeworm parasitic infection following daily sashimi diet for years.

The initial complaint this Chinese man presented with were a stomach ache and itchy skin. After further testing, the doctors came to the discovery that his body had been completely invaded with tapeworm parasites. 

The encysted larvae were embedded deep within the man’s tissues, save for his brain, which would have resulted in the more serious complication of neurocysticercosis.

This man turned out to be an avid sushi eater and ate raw sashimi on an almost daily basis for years. 

What???????

DNA signature found in ice storm babies
The number of days an expectant mother was deprived of electricity during Quebec’s Ice Storm (1998) predicts the epigenetic profile of her child, a new study finds.
Scientists from the Douglas Mental Health University Institute and McGill University have detected a distinctive ‘signature’ in the DNA of children born in the aftermath of the massive Quebec ice storm. Five months after the event, researchers recruited women who had been pregnant during the disaster and assessed their degrees of hardship and distress in a study called Project Ice Storm.
Thirteen years later, the researchers found that DNA within the T cells - a type of immune system cell - of 36 children showed distinctive patterns in DNA methylation.
The researchers concluded for the first time that maternal hardship, predicted the degree of methylation of DNA in the T cells. The “epigenetic” signature plays a role in the way the genes express themselves. This study is also the first to show that it is the objective stress exposure (such as days without electricity) and not the degree of emotional distress in pregnant women that causes long lasting changes in the epigenome of their babies.


Hmm. Definitely worth further investigation.

I went to the Indian food store today with my mom and I stumbled upon these, among a dozen other skin whitening products marketed towards both men and women. I’ve always known Fair and Lovely is a thing but Fair and Teens, a skin whitening product targeted specifically at young girls, makes me so so sad. That image alone comparing the before and after images of skin tone is so sickening to me and only perpetuates the shadism desi people experience every day in an effort to look as white as possible because apparently the only way to be beautiful is to be white. It just makes me so angry that products like this exist and that they’re indirectly responsible for a lot of young brown girls internalized hatred for their skin and their race. Speaking as someone that’s been there, please don’t fall into this trap. Your skin is beautiful no matter how dark or light it is.

I mean this in the nicest way and I totally love you and your blog but do you never get sad about always just being the other girl? That no one wants you and only you? You're never going to come first to any of the men in your life and you're never the first choice. That would be too much for me.

derangedbabydoll:

Obviously I’m extremely needy and demanding and sometimes I get sad but I think that if I was someone’s only choice then I’d mess it up so badly. No one deserves to deal with all of my issues on their own.

My dynamic with my owners and others works well because there’s literally no way that I can fail. Not much is expected of me so I can’t really go wrong.

This is so sad.
There could be someone who would becable to not only deal with but embrace your issues. But you’re not even giving them a chance to show you.

Your soul is like a never ending December but I’ve grown to love the cold.
Other girls wouldn’t risk getting sick for you but I’ve been sick for you, even when I’m sick of you..
It’s not healthy.

(The theraflu is in the kitchen,
In the cabinet but do you want Jamal to get it?
Brandon? James or maybe the cashier you eye-fucked at BiggieMart?)

You love to bring my demons out to play but yours aren’t as friendly; they linger in our sheets, telling ghost stories of how they almost made you stay.
Sometimes I wonder if you only come home because you know the door’s unlocked.

(Even if it’s locked
I still have the key to your heart,
The skeleton clutching my chest
To remind me where you belong,
I can’t excuse my demons
So just dance with them.)
