Fundamentalists respond during the premier of Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey
This is why education and science communication are important.
I was laughing at this until it dawned on me that these people were not being ironic.
Now I’m depressed.
This scares me. ”[The Bible] seems way more plausible.” What? How unfortunate for those of us with a brain.
Actually you’re not considered dead when your heart stops beating. This is why many medical professionals still try to revive those whose hearts have stopped. Because medicine and science has found that death is not considered when your heart as stopped, but once all brain activity has ceased. Which is why they usually have around six minutes before there is no chance to revive. Because when the heart has stopped, your brain cells are deprived of oxygen and start to die.
Fetuses do not have regular brain activity until 25 weeks. At this point in gestation the only time an abortion would be performed is out of medical necessity to save the mother’s life, or to spare the fetus from a short and painful life. These only make up 1% of all abortions. And therefore by this argument, but with the knowledge of what is actually classified as death, a fetus isn’t ‘alive’ until roughly 25 weeks. Far after 99% of abortions are performed.
Please do actual research before trying to use emotional manipulative photos of babies that are born and NOT fetusesbefore parading it out and believing it as fact. Because you are only seriously misinforming yourself, and many others and furthering contributing to a movement that tries to control women’s bodies, when what they do with it does not affect you.
If you are so adamant about helping lives, try doing things for those who are in need and are actually sentient beings. Volunteer at a soup kitchen, donate to an organization that helps feed hungry children, support adoption of older children who are in foster care and are more likely to age out. But this? This does nothing.
Seizure First Aid.
Learn it. Share it. Know it. Use it.
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)
This is so important!
Really good friend of mine from work back home had seizures a few times on the job. This is crucial information.
I had a friend in college that suffered epilepsy (which I was unaware of at the time) and he stopped taking his meds because he felt fine. During class he had a seizure and fell out of his chair. I had never experienced that kind of situation before and didn’t know what to do. Luckily, I guessed right on how to help him but I didn’t time it. Unaware of his condition, I called 911 while another student came and kept him on his side because he was foaming at the mouth.
YOU NEVER KNOW WHEN YOU WILL NEED THIS INFORMATION. I sure didn’t.
I need to remember these sometimes.

It took me ages to figure out it was 101 not lol….
Words for me because while I’m not a parent I’m still a teacher.
Frozen Peas from SuckUK; a fantastic piece of design as metaphor (as well as a super convenient way to make a spherical ice “cube”.
If you truly love me you will buy this for me.
ALRIGHT TUMBLR PEOPLE LISTEN UP FOR FUN SCIENCE TIME!
Sphere basically take less energy to form because of SURFACE ENERGY. Sphere have a lower surface area to volume ratio. Because of this, ice sphere melt slower than your usual cubes. This is the reason at fancy fancy bars with those $30+ glass of bourbon or scotch may serve your drink using these instead of normal ice.
shut up you fucking nerd and let me enjoy the peas in a pod ice sphere mould
dont shut up nerd, it was informative and I learned something thank you.
