like hungry hippo hungry

One time, there was very large crowd next to one of stair cases in my high school. The crowd was all chanting "Fight! Fight!" and soon the teachers took notice. They had to fight their way through the crowd to get to the center of the commotion. Turns out it was an elaborate prank of a couple kids playing Hungry Hungry Hippos.

We had a submission like this about YuGiOh one time

I have a young woman who loses all fingers on her right hand to an automatic saw at the slaughterhouse she works at. First-aid is denied since employer is callous, so instead she dips her hand into boiling water to 'cauterize' the wound, and waits for hours until she can return to her shack. I was thinking that since she'd still have her base knuckles, she could tape sticks/bits of plastic/metal onto her nubs (living near a junkyard) to serve as cheap 'prosthetics'. Is this plausible?






Bandages will do the job JUST FINE

Shirt sleeves. Cut up socks. A rag. ANYTHING*. *clean


As for finger prosthetics, honestly, even though she’d lose the fingertips, the stumps themselves might be able to accomplish what she needs. They’re still her fingers, just shorter. She can do lots of things with them. Honest. (Finger prosthetics are usually for appearance’s sake, not necessarily for functionality.) 

We’ll get to this, but, cauterization on stumps isn’t a great plan. Cauterization literally burns the flesh and the skin, damaging the exact part that needs to heal over. And fingers won’t bleed enough that some direct pressure won’t stop the hemorrhage.

By the way, there’s nothing saying she can’t do this, just that it’s a terrible idea. 

Also: as much as I love Half-Life and Vortigaunts, have you considered the name TheHungryHungryVortigaunt? Like a hungry hungry hippo, but a vortigaunt? (I am often a Hungry Hungry Homo…)

Hope this helped!!

New & Improved FreeBook: 10 BS “Medical” Tropes that Need to Die TODAY!  

anonymous asked:

I do not know if this has been said before but I think Humans compared to aliens would be more competitive in nature. We have so many games and sports. Try explaining some of our board games like risk, monopoly, sorry or even hungry hungry hippos to Aliens. Then also there are games we make up on the fly to escape boredom.

Yo, that’s a really cool idea! Aliens might be very surprised or concerned about how very competative humans are! Especially when they lose - I’ve seen games of Dread Pirate go very south with my family because one of us got angry at another person who just ruined their chances of winning, and I’m not even going into the monopoly games.

Made up games might be pretty strange to aliens too! Though there might be a difference in reaction to the kind of games little kids play (Like, pirates, knights, and other make-believe games), and other games that adults and teens play (Like, “lets see who can spot a green car first” and things like it). I wonder how they’d react to games like I Spy or Animal, Vegetable, Mineral?

Dean Winchester and naked dudes

A catalogue of the times Dean Winchester has happened upon the naked male form:

In 1.07, a half naked man offers to let Dean paint him. He declines, puts his reluctant little brother to the task and sits back to browse through a magazine called Backside. Dean steals a few looks, not that subtly. We cut from the scene to the image of half-naked Christ on a cross.

In 2.05, we get full frontal Ash. The scene is curious. Sam and Dean are heavily contrasted. Sam bangs on his door and calls his name several times, but he doesn’t answer. Dean waltzes in and knows the magic word, calling Ash by the name Dr. Badass, intuitively knowing what Ash needs. He answers the door to Dean immediately.

Stark naked.

Sam is taken aback briefly, but schools his eyes to Ash’s face and goes about his business like it’s no big deal. Not Dean.

Dean… gets a load of Ash’s goods and screws his eyes shut. His reaction is overblown. He avoids looking at the man in an extremely pronounced way. His reaction is not in proportion to what is happening in the scene. The casual viewer will read this as evidence of upstanding heterosexual Dean Winchester having a moment of gay panic. That’s not even close to what’s happening, though, when you take in the context, the framing scenes. Because just afore, he had dodged the eyes of Jo, his designated female love interest at the time, in the same way. A lot of people missed the way Jo and Ash were framed and off-set for Dean. He basically has the same reaction to Jo and to Ash, but Ash is way more naked.

And afterwards? After Ash puts on some clothes, Dean is hovering behind him (again the scene is set with Dean between Ash and Jo), way closer than he needs to be while Sam is casual, all business, sitting at the table. A heterosexual dude that just burned his eyes with unwanted mandick would not have positioned himself like Dean did. Dean isn’t acting like a man who got an eye.full of something he didn’t want to see. Dean is acting like someone who saw something that hurt.

In 5.07, Dean checks out a naked dude and tells him he looks great.

It has been pointed out several times how needless it was for Dean to uncover the man’s nakedness with regards to the case. The thing we don’t talk about in connection with this episode is how Dean doesn’t check out the two Asian hookers, not while they’re on the bed as the boys barge into the room, and not while the girls are exiting the room. Asian hookers, which we have been lead to believe are his fetish of choice. His attention is focused on Cliff the whole time. And while he’s passing his judgement on Cliff as hey leave, he takes one last look, I’m sure wanting to make sure the birth mark is still there, through the robe.

In 5.14, Dean checks out a naked dude’s dick again.

Again, his reaction is contrasted with that of Sam. We get no reaction shot of Sam toward dick, and his level of non-comfort with being hugged by a naked man is in proportion. No one likes it, Castiel says.

This episode was about hunger, and while Dean described himself as well-fed and Famine theorized that Dean had a void inside, he looked like a hungry-hungry hippo throughout the episode with regards to men. Make of that what you will.

In 5.19 Dean gets a full frontal view of Ganesh, who tells him it’s not a peep show. The god had a very large trunk.

Dean is surprised since he thought he saw an elephant. But he does not look displeased by what he saw.

In 6.14 Dean stops to check whether the male mannequin doll is anatomically correct. It isn’t. Dean checks out the doll’s junk three times just to be sure.

In 7.16 Dean volunteers with due enthusiasm to retrieve a cursed object from a man and leaves Sam to retrieve one from a woman. The cursed object is a gentlemen’s magazine, so Dean goes in with the expectation of seeing something erotic. It is revealed that Dean caught the man in medias res, likely masturbating himself to death. Dean does not elaborate to Sam on what he witnessed. Make note that when ever they split up, Dean usually makes the first choice and picks witnesses that are sexually attractive to him.

In 7.23 Dean gets to see Castiel naked, covered in bees, which he reports to his brother. Dean’s line can be parsed in two different ways: either Castiel showed up on his car naked or that Dean swears on his car that Castiel showed up naked. The likely scenario is that it was in answer to his prayer because the line is giving in response to Sam’s suggestion that they try calling Castiel again. In either cae, Dean seems much more perturbed by the bees than the nakedness.

In 8.16 Dean sees Shane-Prometheus naked in the morgue, laid down on a table, dead. After he wakes up, he wraps a thin morgue cloth around him, which is the only thing he’s wearing when Dean hauls his ass back and slams him against an operating table. Dean attempts to keep his eyes above the guy’s neck but isn’t entirely successful. Later he checks out the man’s rear as he exits the motel room and projects on Sam his desire to perform a cavity check on Shane.

In 10.01, we’re shown that demonic Dean Winchester is comfortable with allowing another man to see his nakedness. 

In 10.12, Sam comes to Dean with a case of missing naked people. As far as Dean knows, they’re all men. The one confirmed case Sam shows him is a man, whose photo Dean enlarges.

External image

And then Dean tells his brother: “About time this gig got an R-rating“ before handing the tablet back to him. R-rating for nudity. Regarding naked men. To spell it out for you: he’s not passing judgement on the idea of naked men, he is expressing a wistful yearning to have more naked men in his life. He’s come a long way.

I hear you, Dean. I hear you, man.

We come a full circle in 10.21 where Eldon Styne bears himself to Dean, conducting himself in an aggressively sensual manner because he’s a creepy sexual predator.

He not only shows his naked midriff, he also calls attention lower on his body by mentioning the “Bunch of extra muscle, especially in the legs.“ The natural inclination for any observer, especially one conducting an investigation on weird shit, would be to see this extra muscle for himself. Dean, though?

Dean looks at neither his midriff nor at his legs. An he doesn’t convulsively screw his eyes shut like he did with Ash. He keeps his eyes on the man’s face. Professional. Only, he’s doing the opposite of what any straight dude would do in the situation. He’s keeping himself in check. If naked dudes were something that did nothing for him generally, he wouldn’t need to check himself. He wouldn’t need to not look at the dude’s weird surgical scar and his extra leg muscles. But Dean is into naked dudes. So he doesn’t check out Eldon Styne because Eldon Styne is the job.


Don’t let her fool you, she had a full meal before these treats arrived. 

at times like these, I tell her she’s my hungry, hungry, hippo


BoJack: So what you’re saying is, everything is society’s fault, and we as individuals never need to take responsibility for anything?

Diane: Uh, no. Not exactly. I was just saying that–

BoJack: Yeah. I like that. I didn’t do anything wrong, because I can’t do anything wrong, because we’re all just products of our environment, bouncing around like marbles in the game of Hungry Hungry Hippos that is our random and cruel universe.

Diane: Wait, no, that’s not even what I’m saying–

BoJack: Yeah, it’s not my fault. It’s society. Everything is because of society!

Diane: BoJack, that–

Todd: Dude, just let him have this.

BoJack: Hooray! Everything is meaningless! Nothing I do has consequence!

I feel like for every person I don’t like and get irritated with speaking, I somehow come up with long insult names. It’s amusing.

Anyways. Going to that dinner thing now. Super hungry like a hungry hippo. Gonna die of fooditis.

SOTW: The Duel

SOTWs are supposed to be for Wednesdays, “it’s still Wednesday Pacific time!” in a bind, but I did not account for one thing.

I’ve been the designated family ‘tech person’ since I was a teenager, and that was fun (my brother: why is my computer broken? me: …it’s malware from porn sites. It’s just…it’s all porn sites. I hate you for making me do this. Mom: tape this for me! me: I can…download it?), but word of advice: never, ever reveal you are good at Excel. Especially when your mom was given a crazy next day deadline and types 30 words a minute to your 80. It leads to working until literally three in the morning for free because what are you going to be like, “no, person who gave birth to me, I cannot help you.”? I WAS A DIFFICULT BIRTH. I OWE HER FOREVER.
