Seeing as there’s been shit going around recently about self-diagnosis (yet again) and most of it is from a pretty US centered view (not that there’s anything wrong with that, the majority of the English speaking community on tumblr is american), I just think a few…
The absence of women in history is man made.
Babe Ruth: "I don’t know what’s going to happen if they begin to let women in baseball. Of course, they will never make good. Why? Because they are too delicate. It would kill them to play ball every day."Can we take a moment and appreciate Babe’s face? He looks so confused. “What just happened? How was that possible?How can I eliminate my competition?”
How the Geneva Drive (the mechanical step that makes the second hand on a clock work by turning constant rotation into intermittent motion) works.
As an engineer, this makes me happy.
If only one loop of this gif were equal to one second…

is the best decision i have ever made
Man this is rather fascinating.

If you ever feel like you’ve fucked up just remember that a whole TEAM of people designed this cash machine to be 15 inches off the ground and no one along the way thought ‘maybe this has a design flaw’
Yes. Here in the UK people call them cash machines, I know that’s an odd concept to get your head around but I think together we can do it
actually thats really handy for folk like me, just saying
yea, i just love how something that inconveniences abled people is considered a flaw, but something that is literally exclusive of disabled people, to the point where it renders us unable to do these things without help [if at all], is just considered the norm; there’s no pictures of ATM’s that are way too tall or made without braille, broken elevators, completely inaccessible entrances, &etc. floating around on this site, referring to them as flawed [or, lets call it what it really is: morally reprehensible], because abled people have the world so tailored to their needs, they don’t even see that shit - and when they do, they just shrug their shoulders and think, ”eh, oh well”.
i’d love to line up all the people who used that and ask them ”gee, isn’t it extremely hard - not to mention, humiliating - to use something that is so obviously made for everyone not like you, that they didn’t even care how it would affect you? now take the 15 seconds you spent at that machine and apply to the whole fucking world.”
the anti vaccination movement basically consists of random people with no knowledge of medicine going “I can medicine better than doctors” and it would be hilarious if it wasn’t literally killing people
you dont need vaccines, I havent had any and Im still doing great
wow, what a compelling argument. you’ve got me
in other news, i am still alive therefore death must be a myth
- Do you prepare what you’re going to say in advance, especially for transactional conversations like buying something?
- Do you use the same phrases or wording repeatedly in similar situations?
- Do you have stock responses that you to use to answer certain questions, always saying pretty much the same thing?
- Do you reuse phrases from book, movie or TV characters?
- Do you listen to how other people respond in certain situations and then use similar phrases or replies when you’re in that situation?
- Do you have conversational rules that you follow, sort of like a decision tree in your head?
- Do you approach certain kinds of conversations like a script for a play, where each person is following a certain part?
All possible signs of scripting.
On the left we have the lyrics from Robin Thicke’s Blurred Lines. On the right we rape survivors participating in Project Unbreakable, showing the various things that were said to them by their rapist.
i think this is the most powerful photoset i’ve ever seen on tumblr.
Reblogging until you understand why this song is so vile
This is what a REAL rape prevention campaign looks like
All the awards.
DO ME A HUGE FAVOR AND REBLOG THIS!
This is perfection in a campaign
I love how they included a situation where a guy could’ve gotten raped. People don’t seem to realize that males get raped too. It’s less common, but it happens. That is what sets this campaign apart from others.
I will always reblog this, seriously, share this.
