Nurses after a patient suffers a miscarriage.

This picture is legit. Look up Pink Balloon Photography & Design. It was taken in 2014 and it’s titled, “When We Wept”. She apparently is a volunteer photographer for a foundation called Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep, which is a group dedicated to doing memorial photography for parents who are suffering from the loss of a child. The photographer herself got her start after suffering a miscarriage in January of 2010 after being 25 weeks pregnant.

I went to school with a lot of people who became nurses and I have a lot of respect for them. Right after she got out of nursing school, this one girl had gotten a job at a nursing home. Later, she got a job at an area hospital. I can recall her posting about a few months into her job that one of her favorite patients died at the nursing home and she witnessed them taking their final breaths. It bothered her so much because I can remember her posting about it on Facebook. Mind you all, she didn’t post who they were. All she said was, “I lost my first patient today.” Comments of support came flooding in from other fellow nurses and nurses who has been in the profession for years.

Nurses are human. They’ll form attachments with their patients. When the patient dies, they may not outright show emotion on the outside, but it probably tears them up on the inside.

NYPD in rainbow colors is the most literal version of wolf in sheep’s clothing

It happened





i’m reading a very manly 1950s account of a hunt for el dorado but i’m thirty pages in and the narrator has already described his traveling companion as “handsome” 4 times, “extremely handsome” twice, “exceedingly handsome” once, his voice as “quietly husky” and “a husky whisper,” his fingers as long and deft, his body as “tall and cat-like,” and his eyes as some variation of ice-blue at least three times.

just men being dudes. dudes being pals. it’s great. this is great.

“Ever since he had aimed that gun at my throat, I had liked him immensely. And now I liked him even better.”

oh my god

“I awoke when a beam of light fell across my eyes. Jorge had come into my room carrying a lighted candle.

‘I’m going with you,’ he said quietly.

‘I can’t pay you.’

He smiled. ‘I thought I was a partner?’”


according to apparently every adaptation of a search of el dorado, i think we can conclude that maybe the real el dorado was the homosexuality we found along the way



fun fact: the reason that the plural of goose is geese but the plural of moose is not meese is because goose derives from an ancient germanic word undergoing strong declension, in the pattern of foot/feet and tooth/teeth, wherein oo is mutated to ee. however ‘moose’ is a native american word added to the english lexicon only ~400 years ago, and lacks the etymological reason to be pluralized in that way.

Oh baby.  Keep talking dirty to me.


telling women to “stay in STEM!!!(/academia in general)” is completely useless if the men in academia still aren’t taught not to disrespect women in academia, harrass them, devalue them, abuse them.

like this may come as a surprise but…so many women who enter academia leave it not because women as a whole lack motivation, but because it is an actively hostile environment for them lmao

Re-blog if you can write in cursive.


I heard cursive is dying. I want to see who still uses it.




can waterbenders bend oil
can earthbenders bend glass
can airbenders bend sound
can firebenders bend mixtapes

Yes, waterbenders can bend any water based material, as shown when Katara bends ink (Book 3, Chapter 16, “The Southern Raiders”) and soup (Book 3, Chapter 8, “The Runaway”). so as long as the oil is water based (baby oil, cooking oil, etc) then yes. If you’re talking about oil like for a car, then no, they can’t, because it isn’t water based.

Glass is made of sand and earthbenders can bend sand (Book 2, Chapter 10, “The Library”) and furthermore earthbenders can bend the earth particles in metal (Book 2, Chapter 19, “The Guru”) so it stands to reason that they can bend the sand particles in glass. There is a question of whether or not they can still bend it because it is a very purified form of earth and another pure form of earth, platinum, is unbendable (LOK Book 1, Chapter 7, “The Aftermath”). However, when the sand is turned into glass it becomes crystalline (sand is mostly quartz particles after all) and we know earth benders can bend crystals (Book 1 Chapter 5 “The King of Omashu” when Bumi bends the creeping crystal).

Yes, airbenders can bend sound. This is shown when Aang bends sound by using his Appa whistle and extends the range of the sound (Book 2, Chapter 15, “Tales of Ba Sing Se”).

Firebenders can bend heat (Book 3, Chapter 6, “The Avatar and the Firelord”) which leads me to believe that they can not only bend fire mixtapes but can also control how fire a mixtape is by making it hotter.

Damn, pohlarbearpants did the research

unpopular opinion but people try to cover up the fact that many 18th century white women, while not having the same power as their husbands, were still awful racists. they’re constantly portrayed as being “’ benevolent masters ”’ who took pity on the people they were keeping enslaved and were the exact opposite to their emotionless husbands, and it just isn’t true. white women participated in vile treatment and the oppression of black men and women just as much as men did. and by calling them ‘pure babies who could do no wrong’, etc, it isn’t helping get rid of the stereotype either.

 to quote directly from Olivia A Cole’s blog when she was discussing the issue: “But white women whipped black bodies. They burned them. They posed next to the murdered bodies of black people who were lynched. They called people n*ggers. They scratched faces. They separated families. While wearing their pretty dresses, they ruined lives.”

The Founding mothers are perfect examples of this.

Martha Washington is this feisty broad who took care of herself while always being there for her powerful hubby, right? Well, yeah. She also had no desire to release her own slaves, gave young women as WEDDING GIFTS, & only released her husbands slaves early because she was afraid someone would assassinate her to get freed early, in accordance with George’s will.

& Dolley Madison was the charismatic first lady who lit up rooms with her decadent outfits & strong, extroverted personality, getting even her reclusive hubby to join in on the fun, right? Well, yes. She was also the one slaves FEARED at Montpelier, to the point where a hired chef caught some of the slaves stealing food & threatened to tell Mr. Madison. They laughed, until he threatened to tell DOLLEY. 

Women could be as bad as their husbands.

Women could be WORSE than their husbands.

& frankly, if you don’t believe they had the agency to be horrible, horrible racists, you’re playing into their husband’s belief that they didn’t have agency at all.
