You teach me how to play your game.
“Except you can’t show a topless woman on TV - and you can’t defibrillate a woman in a bra. So victims of heart attacks on TV are *always* male. Did you know that a woman having a heart attack is more likely to have back or jaw pain than chest or left arm pain? I didn’t - because I’ve never seen a woman having a heart attack. I’ve been trained in CPR and Advanced First Aid by the Red Cross over 15 times in my life, the videos and booklets always have a guy and say the same thing about clutching his chest and/or bicep.
And people laugh when I tell them women are still invisible in this world.”
re: feministing - for women, heart attacks look different
Things I did not know, but should.
This is a post that might save a life.
My mom worked for 25 years as an ER nurse and is convinced that a lot of women die simply because folks only know heart attack symptoms that occur in males.
I think this is the best pic ive ever seen in my life thus far.
African American doctors attempting to save the life of a Klu Klux Klan member:
This photo left me speechless, this is what respect is.
Such a powerful photo. It just goes to show that through the eyes of charity, humility, and selflessness, we realize that anyone’s life is worth saving.
I never thought this post would get so many notes. I just admire the meaning that is attached with this powerful picture.
Yep, just have to reblog this everytime i see it on my dashboard.
please reblog. amazing.

Floaters are deposits of various size, shape, consistency, refractive index, and motility within the eye’s vitreous humour, which is normally transparent. At a young age the vitreous is perfectly transparent but, during life, imperfections gradually develop. The common type of floater, which is present in most people’s eyes, is due to degenerative changes of the vitreous humour. The perception of floaters is known as myodesopsia. Floaters are visible because of the shadows they cast on the retina or their refraction of the light that passes through them, and can appear alone or together with several others in one’s field of vision. They may appear as spots, threads, or fragments of cobwebs, which float slowly before the observer’s eyes. Since these objects exist within the eye itself, they are not optical illusions but are entoptic phenomena.
I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR THIS POST MY WHOLE LIFE
Finally know what they are!
I went out to lunch with my brother today. Things got interesting.
*Takes our orders, then looks at us playfully.* "I'll get a candle, it'll be more romantic."
"I'm not his date, Angelo."
*Pauses, raises an eyebrow* "... I... Was wondering if you'd like to get coffee?"
"Black, two sugars. I'll be upstairs."
*Grinning* "Richard Brook was fake."
"Moriarty was real."
*Looking back and forth between us, confused*
"I believe in Sherlock Holmes!"
"I fight John Watson's war!"
The Waiter and I in unison:
"And we both wait for the day that Holmes will walk back through the door!" *Highfive*
My brother and the rest of the diners:
"..." *Not getting it* "... What...?"
