Is there a certain age that people tend to get spine fusions the earliest, or is it just. When your body decides that its time for you to gain a ✨ new disability ✨
afghan hounds are such weird looking dogs it’s like if a politician’s wife made a fursona
they come in exactly two flavors and they are “35 year old midwesterner who wants to sell you some essential oils”
and “wizard in disguise who isn’t even trying”
WAIT I just found a third kind and it’s “your state alchemy license is getting revoked”
This is fantastic because aesthetically you are Correct, but every Afghan hound I’ve met IRL has been a Very Careful Doofus because they’re one of the few large dogs aware that they ARE large and capable of accidentally harming humans if they step on them wrong, but this cereberal awareness leaves you with a sense of unease that you can’t identify until a Rabbit or Squirrel appears and you realize this is an animal designed by the rutlessness of nature and the hubris of man to be one of earth’s fastest and most relentless predators that runs on Pure, Ecstatic Bloodlust, the oh-so-carefully coiffed fur whipping around and blurring its shape until it looks like a sylph, an incarnation of the wind itself, and that mental concentration becomes a terminator-like focus until it’s prey is cornered or just run to the point of exhaustion and it lays prone, panting on the ground and profoundly aware of it’s mortality and the hound stops, body unnaturally frozen over it’s quarry and it turns to look back at you, jovial and inviting, for you to come and fulfill the contract of millenia, to kill the creature it has so lovingly run down for you.
I just saw the coolest thing! There’s a company called Deaf Metal that makes jewelry specifically designed to accessorize hearing aids and cochlear implants! They’re made of hypoallergenic silver and use a cool little silicone sling to attach the jewelry to your existing device.
They create designs for people of all ages, gender presentations, and personal styles. For the hearing aid designs, they have designs that go behind the year as well as ones that slide onto the pipe going into the ear. They’re designed to be fashionable but not decrease function!
They advertise them as a way to both help you accessorize and to help you keep your hearing aids as findable as possible in the event that you misplace one, or in the case that your hearing aid slips off. Their safety chain options are available in both adults and children’s designs.
They’re designed by a Finnish HOH designer named Jenni Ahtiainen who has previously done accessory work for people like Snoop Dog & Bono. She believes that hearing aids & cochlear implants should be like glasses, you should be able to style them to your liking. All the products range in cost from $15-50 and if you only wear a hearing aid in one ear, many designs offer the option of purchasing an earring for your other ear so you can match! You can see her other design work at @gtiejenni and @gtieneckwear.
Deaf Metal sells & ships worldwide (USA, Canada, Australia, Great Britain, Norway, Finland, and France, to name a few) from their online store and their amazon shop. They also have some brick and mortar retailers that carry their designs in Norway and Finland.
You can find their website in this post’s sources.

in 7 years its going to be the 20s again so we can bring back swing music and the aesthetics of that era but keep modern values who’s with me
you can’t repeat the past
can’t repeat the past? why, of course you can! of course you can.

this is my post. do you know how it feels to have this be your post? do you understand the guilt i have to live with knowing this is my post? the weight on my soul as the decade popped into prominence with spanish flu … 2 !
do you know how it feels, heritageposts? are any of these heritage posts your own or are you just a curator of human misery? do you know how it feels to live knowing that of anything i’ve ever made, anything i’ve ever said, this has been seen by most people, and this will probably remain the case until i die? for this to be my legacy? can you relate? can you empathize?
but do you want to know the worst part? the absolute worst part of all of this?
we haven’t even brought back art deco into mainstream prominence. sickening
conspiracy theory: people on other social media sites keep saying tumblr is dead so they can mine us for resources without anyone else going to the source
half the comments on any given tumblr screenshot post are like “wow I miss tumblr, shame it died” and the screenshot is from, like, last tuesday
Fingers crossed, everyone
More positive signs
You look like a white Lin Manuel Miranda.
Turn off anon I just want to burn you to a crisp with hell fire
that bitch really just drop the baby like that
yeah they drop them in like a real fall into a pool its an infant self rescue course its scary as hell to watch but it teaches your baby not to drown
No seriously it really is amazing. It’s called ISR Self Rescue. I’ve seen multiple parents on social media decide to do this with their babies as young as 6 months (they gradually get up to the “throwing” into the pool) and it’s so awesome watching it.
It literally could be a lifesaver some day. One time I watched a security camera video of a dad playing in a pool with his kids and his toddler, who had been sitting on the slide, fell in and the dad didn’t notice for at least 30 seconds… But this little toddler automatically knew what to do and started floating on his back. When the dad noticed, he immediately grabbed him, but the reason this toddler didn’t sink or drown was because of the infant swim lessons his parents had presumably put him in.
Obviously floaties and parental supervision would still help, but you can’t rely on those 100% of the time.
Oh thank you so much for explaining i was so worried
Crazy factoid: Babies are actually born knowing how to hold their breath and use swim-like movements when submerged. Yeah. It’s a primitive reflex that they lose (if not enforced) at ~6 months.
Obviously, do not submerge your infant in water without an expert, but what these lessons are doing is encouraging and honing natural reflexes. These babies are perfectly safe, and I honestly think this is a really responsible parenting move. Accidents happen. Floaties don’t know which side is up. Parents are humans, not robots, and especially with more than one kid, sometimes you look away for a minute. It happens. But lessons like these minimize the risk involved.
Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie: “Black Lives Matter is doing something really important.”
Nigerian novelist and short story writer Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie is sharing her thoughts on the striking difference between how Black people are seen in Nigeria and America and the importance of the Black Lives Matter movement on Channel 4 News.
Where to begin with all this
Sometimes I purposely have headphones in with no actual music to stop people from trying to talk to me. Enraging.
What incel wrote this article.
This is the only appropriate reaction since he wanna be all up in my face.
Even that image they have, the woman looks SUPER UNCOMFORTABLE. How do you even justify this garbage???
Describing gender as a spectrum implies that there are people whose gender cannot correctly be displayed in digital media because it falls outside the RGB colour gamut.
Shrimp genders are 100% valid, but that’s not quite the analogy I was going for.
It’s like… okay, everybody knows how human colour vision works, right? We have three types of colour receptors in our eyes: one responds only to red light, one responds only to green light, and one responds only to blue light. Thus, any colour that humans can see can be modelled as a combination of red, green, and blue light in varying intensities. Simple.
The trouble is, that’s not how it works at all.
In reality, each of the three types of colour receptors in your eyes responds to a range of wavelengths. In some cases, those ranges can be very large:
As shown in the preceding diagram, they don’t even peak at red, green and blue; the peak sensitivity for L (”red”) receptors, for example, is somewhere in the yellow-orange range, while S (”blue”) receptors’ sensitivity peaks at deep purple.
Red, green and blue were chosen as primary colours simply because those are the three colours that most effective “isolate” each type of colour receptor. That is, if you wanted a colour of light that gets the strongest response out of the L receptors, with the least amount of spillover to the other two kinds of receptors, you’d pick red.
The upshot is that the RGB colour model is merely an approximation of the visible spectrum. It can display lots and lots of colours. However, there are also lots and lots of colours it can’t display, because there’s no combination of red, green and blue light that produces quite the same reaction in your colour receptors that the true colour would.
So how good is that approximation?
In the preceding diagram, the grey semi-ellipse represents the range of colours that a human with typical colour vision can see. The inset coloured triangle represents the range of colours that the RGB colour model can approximate. If you tot up the areas, that’s pretty stark: the RGB colour model can approximate nearly seventeen million distinct hues and still excludes the majority of the visible spectrum.
Like, these aren’t colours that only shrimp can see. There are probably objects within arm’s reach of where you’re sitting whose colours cannot be approximated by the screen you’re reading this post on.
Now consider the gulf between “the range of genders that exist” and “the range of genders we have the language to describe”. I’m not saying it’s a good analogy, but it’s one that hits home for me!
