Seizure First Aid.
Learn it. Share it. Know it. Use it.
100% correct medical information on tumblr for once; also consider calling 911 if you don’t know how often the person has seizures and ESPECIALLY if the seizure has lasted 5 minutes or more (which is why the watch is critical)
as a person who has suffered multiple seizures, and will most likely and unfortunately have more, this is a major need on my blog. everyone needs to know these facts!
My friend is asexual and doesn’t think anybody’s going to want to date her because of it - I want to prove her wrong.
So it’s come to my attention that there’ll be a new episode featuring “thin man” which is supposedly based off of slenderman. While I struggle to view it as based off of slenderman, I think an introduction should be in order since our two fandoms are bumping into eachother (many slenderseries start off as “ghostfacers” type deals.)
Onward, first and foremost, please watch this video here- "Intro to the Slenderverse"
As a short explanation, the slenderverse consists of both fans of and creators of slenderseries, or youtube-based series such as Marble Hornets. All of these series have one thing in common: Victor Surge’s mythical Slenderman, but some have elaborated on the myth. Out of the hundreds of series, four, excluding the foundation of the verse (MH), there are several that are considered to be “major” series that often overlap with one another. Those series include:
5. Caughtnotsleeping (this one really stays in its own little game)
aaaand 7. Whisperedfaith (although there are cameos in some of the other series, this is mostly based around the Rake and only became part of the ‘verse when it crossed over with KeretinGarden)
If you’re curious about more series, check out SlendyWeek or the Slenderman Mythos section at Unfiction.
Two of the biggest communities for the Slenderverse are Slendernation and Hornetcon, but the fandom has a large presence here on tumblr (but we also mostly keep to ourselves.)
As an end note, I made this post because a lot of the fandom and the creators of various slenderseries were worried about the episode possibly overshadowing the hardwork, dedication, and talent put into these series, much like the game Slender did when it first came out.
Many if not most of the people in the fandom are Supernatural fans too, and I know that if you like found-footage style movies or shows, you’ll love the slenderverse and will fit right in.
So that will be all, happy watching, and I hope you enjoy the episode!
LifeStraw purifies water instantly and inexpensively: it is a solution that can provide millions of under-privileged people with safe drinking water.
reblogging again because science
Seriously, Science. Do your thing.
IT’S ONLY 20$.
OH MY GOD
I’VE BEEN WAITING FOR TUMBLR TO GET WIND OF THIS
I’ll always signal boost this because not only does this work for people in under privilege areas it’s also proof of human ingenuity.
Really, we kids that grew up in the early 90s were all told about how we had to conserve water because drinkable water was such a rare resource and people in foreign lands were basically fucked up the ass because there was no way for them to get drinking water. 20 years and 20 bucks later one of the biggest problems humanity faced is a non issue. THAT’S FUCKING CRAZY!
Somebody should start one of those online donate things where people can donate money to buy these to send to areas with unsafe drinking water. But somebody other than me should do it because I don’t know how to do that kind of thing or get the word out.
this is amazing
FYI to everyone, if you purchase a LifeStraw through EarthEasy, they will send you a LifeStraw and also send one to the Philippines (through the Rotary Water Projects) so that the victims of Typhoon Haiyan can have safe drinking water. So if you were thinking of buying one, buy through them, not Amazon. It’s the same price.
Follow-up to above, you also can donate directly to the LifeStraw fundraiserhere without needing to buy one for yourself. You have drinking water right now. You can wait to get this. They cannot.

ATTENTION! On Friday, February 21, 2014, there are was a hoax call for a shooting at Lake Mary High School, Florida. The person got a pre-paid phone, called 911 telling that he had heard shots fired at the school, and threw the phone is the trash afterward.
At the time of the event, no one was aware it was a hoax, and it caused a school-wide panic. The school was on lock-down for well over an hour while the police evacuated the school, searching all of the students and teachers.
Both photos above are screenshots from a video taken from a helicopter, which you can view here (x).
People who were evacuated, were searched and were sent outside with their hands on their head, during this most were crying and trying to call their parents. The second photo is of cops searching the cars of parents coming to pick their kids up.
Here is a video of a set of students being evacuated by armed authorities (x).
Despite the call, there were no shots fired. But people are on edge because the call was planned. The person knew they would find out it was a hoax, so they made sure the call was untraceable. Rumors say it was the person’s test run to see how many authorities would show up and see if they could get away with it. It is expected that it might happen again and it will be no hoax.
If you live in the Central Florida area, take extra caution when going into work or school. Everyone is on edge, and this could cause other people to become violent. If you go to a school in Seminole county, or go to Lake Mary High School, be aware that something is expected to happen next week, so my best advice is to stay home.
If you do not live near the Central Florida area, please still at least re-blog this post, because it has the potential to spread the word, and save a life.
guys this is my school and if you go here, or even work/go to school in the general area, i highly advice you to stay home. there’s no confirmation on a death threat to the school but better safe than sorry.spread the word, it just takes 1 reblog.
7/11 breathing. A skill to use for anxiety. It’s recommended to do it for 10-15 minutes. Like any other skill it does require a lot of practice. I advice that you practice it when you are feeling calm so you are ready in a time of need. If you lose count, which is easily done, simply start again until you do 15 minutes. It will also help with distraction even if you don’t get it right the first hundred times.
Breathing out longer than you breathe in actually activates your parasympathetic nervous system!
Anxiety is your sympathetic nervous system (“fight or flight”) setting off all the alarms, while breathing like this will set the parasympathetic system (“rest and digest”) into action shutting off the alarms and settling your nerves.
Other things that help: laughing, checking out what’s going on around you (moving head and eyes to orient to your surroundings), getting curious about something.
Take care, be safe.
