I think this is necessary to post. I see a lot of people “saving” bunnies.
"*Bunnies are one of the most frequently “kidnapped” mammal species.
*Mothers dig a very shallow nest in the ground that is easily uncovered when mowing or raking the yard. If you find a rabbit nest-leave it alone!!
*Mother rabbits only return to the nest two or three times a day, usually before dawn and right after dusk.
*To determine if they are orphaned, either place a string across the nest in a tic-tac-toe shape or circle the nest with flour. Check the nest the next day. If the string or flour is disturbed, the mother has returned. If not, take the bunnies to a rehabilitator.
* A bunny that is bright eyed and 4-5 inches long is fully independent and does NOT need to be rescued!
*If you find a bunny that does need to be rescued, put it in a dark, quiet location. Bunnies are a prey species and while they may look calm, they are actually very, very scared!”
Never knew this, keeping this for reference
As a student of Veterinary Medicine I can completely confirm this! Do NOT take them out of their nest unless you’re 100% sure that the mother did not come back for them after at least one day!
Brazilian artist Angelica Dass is attempting to catalog the entire range of human skin tones — to create what she calls a “chromatic inventory” of all humankind. More after the jump:
This past summer I participated in my Interior Design department’s Study Abroad program to Florence, Italy. I took a side trip to Paris, France with a few other students.
One of the places we decided to visit was the Palace of Versailles. The line for the tickets is off to the left in the Ailes des Ministres. I was not expecting what I saw, having studied the history of the architecture and interiors of Versailles (Baroque, Rococo, French Neo-Classical, etc.).
The spaces are a collaboration of Leonardo Sonnoli and Irene Bacchi. I love the light fixtures and silhouettes of the royals who once resided there. They somewhat remind me of a spider that mated with a centipede and produced a glowing centi-spider thing. Anyway, they were neat.
The walls have wallpaper that ignores parts of the boiseries and stoppes at the crown and base moldings. The wallpapers include motifs from the wallpapers located in the most famous rooms of the palace. There’s also a map of the property which shows the scale of the palace in relation to the gardens which are referred to as the Infinity Gardens… I wonder why….
My camera was short on memory and battery life (it died right after we got into the palace… boo), so I do not have photos of the wallpaper or silhouettes. BUT, I did some searching on the internets and found some!
They can be found here! It is also where I found some of the info I mentioned above.
I laughed to myself when I saw the silhouettes of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette (because they’re only of their heads… well, bust, but still!). I’m not sorry.

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.
