These really can’t be said enough.
Like, literally, it can’t be said enough, because feminists continually say this is a symptom of “hte patriarcheh” without realizing that no, it’s 100% feminist-pushed legal doctorine.
Oh, tumblr loooooves the whole “if you aren’t attracted to (blank) you are (blank)ist.” Which is hilarious because it assumes that people have control over who they are attracted to. Um, yeah, the entire gay rights movement would like to have a word with you about that….
jokes are most certainly illegal. knock knock you say? ill tell you who’s there. the fucking police.
Trying to get this on as many social media platforms as possible.
A Fight to Survive TBI: The Story of David On the Road to Recover from Traumatic Brain Injury.
August 24, 2012 drastically changed my life. What happened that evening has left David in a vegetative coma and I am desperate to save my son’s life and future. David was pistol whipped, had his jaw broken and then his unconscious body was robbed. Though David regained consciousness, he was incoherent and rushed by ambulance to UMDNJ trauma center in Newark, New Jersey. It was there that he underwent emergency craniotomy surgery to alleviate the pressure from his swelling brain.
He is currently living in a sub-acute unit at a nursing home being fed via a gastric feeding tube. He is no longer entitled to physical therapy because he has shown no signs of progress. This means each day he lies in bed approximately 19 hours and sit in a wheelchair for 5 hours with no physical stimulation aside from being dressed and his diaper changed.
The importance behind physical therapy is that it will help him maintain his muscles and joints; to achieve his goal to attain flexibility, balance and coordination free from pain or suffering, so that he may lead a normal life again; performing all of his daily activities with minimal or no difficulty and without dependency. It can even help with his cardiopulmonary and neurological functions.
With prolonged treatment, it is possible for him to regain a large share, if not all of his mobility and it will improve his overall fitness and health.
David’s survival depends on continued physical and mental stimulation therapies which most insurances are not willing to fund long term. The lack of such treatment poses a direct threat to David’s ability to return to a life that extend beyond sitting in front of a television for hours on end in a nursing home. He deserves better.
His recovery is destined to be a long and arduous one, with no guarantees. But in order for him to have that chance, he needs, aside from a miracle, funds for aggressive physical therapy, a private neurologist and a specially designed vehicle for myself to accommodate his wheel chair.
Please join my family in our fight to get David the medical and physical treatment he needs. The amount we are now trying to raise is just the beginning for David and we could use your support. Thank you!
Please reblog, donate, and pray for David #teamwu
Dad made his son a hand with a 3D printer for $10 instead of paying tens of thousands for a prosthetic.
The way the boy smiles when he says “I’m like a cyborg.” just melted my heart. People are printing robotic hands. It’s the future. We live in sci-fi.
is it durable, tho?
Some 3D printed plastics are highly durable and can withstand massive impact and shock, so this is incredible.
This is fantastic. Not only did someone work on this project and post it to the internet for free but I’m guessing that this father found access to a 3D printer for free in order to make the hand. This just goes to show you the difference that can be made around the world by caring more about helping others than profit, and it didn’t seem like (the one we saw) creator was hurting for money or anything by making that decision.
"misandry can’t exist because spell check thinks it’s not a real word!!"
Well transphobia, genderfluid, and ableist aren’t counted as real words either. Just saying.
Good job pet store. That is what’s up.
I worked in a pet store for 5 years, and every Easter our rabbit sales went up exponentially. I can tell you from experience that almost half of the rabbits we sold were brought back in as early as two weeks after they were adopted. Some people let them loose, and some people send them to a shelter. People need to understand this very statement, and truly think about it. A rabbit is a big commitment, and should not be a fad or seen as a compulsory pet.
I cannot like this anymore than once, but I sure as hell hope people will spread this message, because it’s important as hell. I used to hand out care sheet BOOKLETS to everyone looking to adopt, and it prevented many of them from adopting in the end.
This goes for any animal, holy hell big underscores and exclamation marks. Huge props to this pet store for trying to put their pets before sales instead of shelling them out like candy.
Same for dogs. Stop starving your dogs because you think every animal in the world could be vegan.
the darkest part of this comic is the realization that they were both right
I got chills
(CNN) — Uncertainly over the fate of missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 was further compounded Saturday by reports that two men whose names matched those on the passenger manifest had reported their passports stolen.
After the airline released a manifest of the 239 people on the plane, Austria denied that one of its citizens was on the flight as the list had stated. The Austrian citizen was safe and sound, and his passport had been stolen two years ago, Austrian Foreign Ministry spokesman Martin Weiss said.
Similarly, Italy’s foreign ministry confirmed that no Italians were on the flight, even though an Italian was listed on the manifest. Malaysian officials said they were aware of reports that the Italian’s passport was also stolen but had not confirmed it.
On Saturday, Italian police visited the home of the parents of Luigi Maraldi, the man whose name appeared on the manifest. The police official said that Maraldi had reported his passport stolen in Malaysia last August and had obtained a new one.
Update: Two people who boarded Flight 370 using stolen passports appear to have bought their tickets together, records show.
