Can we just take a moment and appreciate the way they’re not trying to hide the fact that she just birthed a human being so now her body’s going to be different?

K, thanks.

A tip from your favorite nurse

(that’d be me)

Always have eggs in your fridge

You just never know when someone will split their head open

Or cut their finger while cooking

And so on

See that membrane there?

While the blood is gushing - hold pressure and crack open an egg

Peel that there membrane off and put it on the wound (continue holding pressure)

The membrane will harden and keep the wound closed until you can get to the ER for stitches

If you even need them that is

Nature: 1, Band aids: 0

You’re welcome.

I did some research on this (because I do that now, fucking science get out) and it seems that this was done in the early 1900s somewhat frequently. It was used as a way to treat just about any kind of skin wound, from burn to cut to in at least one case an ulcer. It actually helps the wound heal not by preventing blood loss but by replacing part of the skin tissue and helping it grow.

It also helps in healing scars and reducing their visibility.

Whoah science.

Neato.

Supercool.

Also, if you have a splinter, smack one of these things on there and it will draw it out of your skin. No more messing around with pliers.

it will also suck the poison stuff out of mosquito bites and stop them from being itchy

I’ve always identified with the pirates who don’t do anything but especially bc of this quote

Pa Grape: Not so fast you lazies! Today we’re doing a little something. 
Larry the Cucumber: Not again! 
Mr. Lunt: We did something yesterday! 
Pa Grape: All you did was order Chinese. 
Mr. Lunt: Hey! It’s hard to say ‘moo goo gai pan’. Whoops! I did it again. I’m beat. 

LIKE. SAME.

“In 1921, early suffragettes often donned a bathing suit and ate pizza in large groups to annoy men…it was a custom at the time.”

TIME TO REVIVE A CUSTOM

Um… not correct at all…

Well… it was taken in 1921, but that’s a pie eating contest at Tidal Basin bathing beach in Washington D.C. It’s part of the National Photo Company Collection. (source)

Oh, and 1921 wouldn’t be early suffragettes, wouldn’t be a suffragettes at all, because women gained the right to vote in 1920, the year before this photo.

Dear feminists: Check your history. The suffragettes knew what was up, so get it right. Anything less is a disgrace to their memory.

Growing up Vincent Van Gogh was ALWAYS one of my favorite artists, and not to sound cliche but “Starry Night” was, and still is, my favorite piece of his. I also grew up watching Doctor Who episodes my dad had recorded on VHS. So, when the two collided, it was blew my mind by how magical it was, and to this day “Vincent and the Doctor” is one of my ALL TIME favorite episodes! Now if only The Doctor had a chance encounter with Oscar Wilde!
