The man with metal blood.
Eric Virkeliglangtnavn of Norway is unique among the seven billion people on Earth: He likes Nickelback. No but seriously, he has fucking METAL BLOOD.
In normal blood, hemoglobin bonds with oxygen to carry it to cells. In Eric’s bloodstream however, hemoglobin is not present. Oxygen in his blood cells is instead carried by Gallium, which forms an identical bond. Scientists remain uncertain how Mr. Virkeliglangtnavn contracted the condition, but some theroize that his mother listened to Darkthrone while pregnant.

because after it happened we placed higher restrictions on gun ownership
because that’s the logical fucking thing to do
There was a split second there where his like, “wait, what? bro what are you doing?”
On more serious note, PTSD dogs for veterans are so fucking therapeutic. They’re like the one person you can spill your guts to and never worry about ever being judged or have that secret divulged. There are times when I definitely prefer the company of a dog over a human.
Therapy animals save lives.
These dogs are even still so much more amazing. They check rooms before their handler enters, so they can clear it to help the person feel safe. Like in the gif, they are there when panic attacks or nightmares occur, to be something for the person to help ground themselves on, or yes just to turn on the lights. Even more amazing, many people are able to reduce their medication when they have a PTSD service dog there to help them. These dogs are useful for not just veterans, but also victims of abuse, accident trauma, natural disasters, and others. Their training allows them to be useful in situations where medical assistance is needed, as well. Some PTSD dogs are trained to recognize repetitive behaviours in handlers, and signal the handler to break the repetition and stopping the behaviour and possibly injury.
Service dogs in general are just awesome. Remember to respect any that you see out in public. They are not there for you to walk up to and play with, even the puppies!
I was reading an article of a service dog helping a person with schizophrenia. she stated that when she was seeing or hearing things and notices the dog is not reacting in any way, then she is able to ground herself, realizing what she was experiencing was not real and could work through it easier and is more able to ignore the delusions. And she pointed out she feels more comfortable with a service dog as well because well, dogs don’t judge and get angry for things like this
I teared up about this whole post to be honest.
i’ll never not reblog this post. it is so important.
I cried a little about this
the fact that people call Iggy Azalea the Queen of rap (or whatever the fuck her shitty music is) after having like 3 popular songs is a perfect example of white privilege. Singers like Nicki Minaj are amazing and have stayed on top of the game for years but because she’s black, everyone makes fun of the way she talks, the way she dresses, and the way her body is.Literally nobody is calling iggy azalea the queen of rap
Thousands of irrelevant people are
