Lupus (SLE) is an inflammatory disease caused when the immune system attacks its own tissues.
Lupus (SLE) can affect the joints, skin, kidneys, blood cells, brain, heart, and lungs.
Symptoms vary but can include fatigue, joint pain, rash, and fever. These can periodically get worse (flare-up) and then improve.
While there’s no cure for lupus, current treatments focus on improving quality of life through controlling symptoms and minimizing flare-ups. This begins with lifestyle modifications, including sun protection and diet. Further disease management includes medications, such as anti-inflammatories and steroids.

Possible Origin of Grell’s Chainsaw

Grell having a chainsaw has always been interesting to me, and it seems clear that Grell modified it herself as William lists modifying it without proper procedures as one of her crimes.

I would also think that Grell modifying her scythe was more recent since William didn’t seem to know about it prior this event.

What’s interesting, is that Grell is not shown with any death scythe, chainsaw or otherwise, prior to the conflict with Sebastian and Ciel, even in Madam Red’s flashbacks.

Grell is shown with no visible death scythe during all this time. Now there was a chainsaw like device invited in 1930 used to assist women in childbirth. Considering that Madame Red has performed abortions, she’s probably worked in gynecology. She has most likely delivered, which meant she might have used or was at least aware of this advice.

What if the idea for Grell’s chainsaw came for Madam Red although Grell was actually the one to do the modifications.

anonymous asked:

What age do you think parents should let their children make their own decisions about their body? I'm 17 and not allowed to go on hormones.

Kii says:

“Making decisions about their body” is a very broad term, as it can include not only transition, but getting modifications such as tattoos, piercings, and plastic surgery. However, I think a parent should always trust a child’s decision on hormones and trans-related surgeries. If a child is deemed old enough for hormones/surgery by a doctor (which is usually at least 13 years old for hormones and 16 for top surgery, bottom surgery is usually not given to minors, though this all varies by doctor), I think the parent should trust their decision. I have my own decisions on the non-trans related things listed above, but they don’t really relate to this blog so you can message my on my personal if you want to know my opinions on that.

Mark VIII Errant Power Armour

The Mark VIII Errant pattern is an update to the Aquila Mark VII pattern armour, the first suit of new Power Armour produced by the Imperium since the Horus Heresy, thus illustrating the extreme stagnation of Mankind’s science and technology over the past ten millennia since the fall of Horus and the Ascension of the Emperor. Mark VIII armour is distinguished by a raised collar or gorget at the front, and enhanced armoured plating for the Mark VII’s torso power cables which were vulnerable to weapons fire. The new pattern also addressed the vulnerability issues of the Mark VII’s neck joint, which had been know to act as a “shell-trap”, (a round could hit the chest armour and deflect up into the neck joint). The new gorget required a new helmet design, which caused problems for backward compatibility with the earlier helmet types, which cannot be easily fitted to a Mark VIII neck joint without extensive modification. Mark VIII armour has gone into only limited production thus far, and is seen in limited numbers on the battlefields of the late 41st Millennium. Full versions of this armour are almost never seen; however, it is common to find parts of it being used by Space Marine officers. It has had limited deployment thus far, so tends to be reserved for Veteran Marines as a sign of their rank. Thus far, Mark VIII suits have mostly been issued to Sergeants and higher-ranking Astartes officers, and as such the appearance of the Mark VIII has taken on an air of authority amongst the Adeptus Astartes. The Mark VIII is not widespread in the galaxy yet and it will take quite a few Terran centuries before the Forge Worlds of the Imperium have brought every Chapter up to the new standard.

skitchy sketchy 5 min art 20 minute writing seems legit

ok so
he would come from a model line that is relatively limited and they were built for very nsfw purposes and thus they are more organic-feeling in terms of skin and such. very squishy. even comes with fake-heartbeat and body heat simulation. and because tastes are different they come with a shitton of possible modifications

cavoc had a human face once but he got really tired of people changing his face and that’s pretty much how he developed his ‘little shit’ abilities by convincing the people he lived it at that time to get his body modifies the way he wanted. certainly lived as female-presenting at some point but wasn’t too happy with that because he looked at human males and was like “you know what? thats hot shit i want to look like that. i am that.”

got rid of his face because he thinks mechanical humanoid facial expressions are bothersome and thanks to a really good display that now serves as his face and to databases he can adopt any face he feels like at the moment and also display stuff like symbols

eventually decided to do his own thing which prompted humans to think he was some kind of robohooker now when in reality he didnt want to be a ‘thing’ to own. he’s too dominant for such things to be comfortable with that.
so he just does his thing

SAS jeep, North Africa WWII.  I’m fascinated by this for several reasons. The modifications to the ¼ ton are well thought out in detail even to removing the windshield to prevent a betraying glint of reflected sunlight, the obvious firepower of the vehicle, and the relatively low cost rendering a very favorable tooth to tail ratio.  Damn good idea.


The Dark Exact Tarot

Decided to modify this already pretty cool deck, by doing black edging with a permanent marker. And I’m happy to say that it turned out great. 

In the first picture you can see it halfway done, and in the last one it’s compared to the traditional Rider-Waite-Smith deck. 

If you want an intellectual stimulating, post modern and minimalistic “goth” deck, this is highly recommended. Perfect for the urban eclectic witch, or even the daring chaos magician who wants to try out some nocturnal witchcraft.  

The cards are maybe more like regular playing cards in size, but their thickness is alright, and it sort of fits with the modern aesthetic anyway. It does have a funny smell, sort of chemical, but then again, I think that sort of fits the whole style of the deck, and in a weird way, it make the experience more three dimensional. 

I won’t bother doing a full review, I just want to share this cool little piece of art with you. I’m sure you’ll appreciate it you have the same tastes as me :)
