“I have Asperger’s, but I wasn’t diagnosed for a long time. I was a polite child. I found it easy to concentrate at school. I had some problems socializing but that’s pretty normal for children. But my problem is that I’m too transparent. I kept trying to fix people. I could never just stand aside and let things be. I kept telling people what was wrong with their lives. I thought I was helping them. I just wanted everything to be in order. But I accidentally stirred up so much negativity. Now I’m sometimes afraid to talk to people. I don’t want to cause any problems. There’s no danger in what I just said– is there?”

An AU where everything is all fine and dandy, and they go to school like normal kids do?? that’s all I ask for c’mon

Part 2

Imagine children of Hephaestus being born with parts of their bodies being made of metal. It varies how weird or horrific the placement of these parts are. Many children with born with metal limbs build better, more stylish ones for themselves

Imagine children of Aphrodite that are born with the power to change their appearance, but they can’t control it. They change when their emotions are high or just randomly throughout the day. Sometimes they’ll have two different faces and not be able to do anything about it

Imagine children of Apollo being literally made of light. There’s always a soft glow coming from their eyes, nose, and mouth. They get hard to look at when they’re mad but they also make good flashlights

Imagine children of Ares who just casually spill blood all the time. Out of their mouths, ears, eyes, and noses. Just randomly, no warning. Sometime random small wounds will open up on their arms, legs, and faces. New campers are very scared of them

Imagine children of Athena who physically shut down from information over load; they can’t move, can’t speak, don’t even breathe so their brains can review all the things they know. When they’re in this state you can literally see words and pictures flash across their eyes. Don’t disturb them in this state, it won’t be good for either of you

Imagine children of Demeter who have flowers and other flora growing out of their bodies. Little roses (thorns and all) growing out of their heads, lilies growing from their shoulders. Sometimes their hair will start turning green

Imagine children of Dionysus with grape juice for blood. When they get older, it ferments and turns to wine. They can will vines to grow out of their bodies, though the grapes on those vines will make anyone else sick

Imagine children of Hermes who talk so fast, their voice can’t catch up. They’ll be talking and suddenly, their voice gives out. But they still keep talking. When they stop, their voice keeps going once it’s able to catch up

Imagine children of Hades with see through skin. All the bones, veins, organs, and everything is visible. Sometimes, depending on a lot of things, their skin is more translucent than normal

Imagine children of Poseidon being born with aquatic features; scales, gills, webbed hands/feet, slimy skin, etc. Some are able to go fine without water, while some need it or they get sick. They won’t die but they will be quite miserable

Imagine children of Zeus who are made of lightning. You can see it under their skin, jumping from one body part to the next. Their eyes have lightning and them always look like colored storm clouds. Touching them is always an endeavor in trying not to get shocked too badly

Imagine really cool side effects to being half all powerful God

old mcdonald had a farm E-I-E-I-O

and on that farm he

slaughtered, raped, confined, mutilated, tortured and exploited innocent beings because 99% of animals come from factory farms with little to no rules for “animal welfare” and there is no such thing as humane slaughter anyway - also it’s not a mutually beneficial relationship if one party is killed to serve the other for profit

and he was one of the main contributors to green house gas emissions, rainforest deforestation, fresh water usage, grain usage, water pollution, species extinction, ocean dead zones and waste production

You get what you are given. And it might be wonderful… and it might be painful. And it might be both.
—  Amelia Shepherd (Grey’s Anatomy Season 13, Episode 17: Till I Hear It From You)
Hot new Lazytown episode plot

The children find a box, and it is NOT all distorted and bendy, but is actually a normal cube shape. 

The children are scared.

They show the box to Sportacus. He has no idea what to make of it. 

No one has seen a regular-ass box before.

The whole town is scared. 

A Palestinian boy sleeps on a mattress inside the remains of his family’s house.

‘A sand storm approached the Gaza Strip, and the first thing that came to my mind was the people living in the remains of the houses that were destroyed by Israeli shelling during the 50-day war in 2014. The densely-populated Shejaiya neighbourhood was almost empty, like a ghost town. The picture of the boy asleep there shows how difficult life is for these people. No one can imagine a boy could sleep in these conditions. But it’s normal for the children now.’

Time travel AU with Obi-Wan raising the twins while as a bounty hunter is basically everything I want in a fic. And if he travels to CW era while the twins are babies, basically, there's very little physical differences between him and CW era!Obi-Wan. I'm now laughing at the thought of has-no-fucks-left-to-give Ben Kenobi bursting into the galaxy and confusing everyone because why is Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi suddenly a bounty hunter?!?

this was basically me, coming up with this fic. ben just wants the entire galaxy to fuck the fuck off. He has no patience for literally anything, his entire world are baby luke and leia, who adore their Nobi, and are really good at playing ‘hide and seek’. 

the council reacting to the idea that fucking OBI-WAN KENOBI has gone off the rails and is obviously super fucking attached to these two kids, SKYWALKER’S KIDS

padme and anakin silently screaming because apparently those are their children??????? WHAT THE FUCK!!!!!!!!!

obi-wan kenobi silently screaming because suddenly his attachment to anakin is blatantly on display for anyone to scrutinize (sorry buddy everyone else can see it, you’re the only one you’re fooling anyway)

the only reason the council even becomes aware of Ben Kenobi is because Ben makes a splash, he can’t even help it??? plus two tiny REALLY FORCE-STRONG BABIES

the jedi: let us have the babies, kenobi

ben: ??? how about you go fuck yourself, you let all the younglings die :\\\

dancing-thru-clouds  asked:

So wait. Uncle Popeye got beat up by a gamecock? Aren't those things like, three pounds soaking wet?

OH NO ITS BETTER THAN THAT.

Popeye got beat up by an AMERICAN WOODCOCK, which is…  I’ll allow this video to explain:

They walk like that because any reasonable carnivore looks at that and goes “That can’t possibly be food.”  They’re also called “Timberdoodles” have nearly rear-facing eyes, upside-down brains, and go “PrrrEENT”.  They’re basically real-life cuddly cryptids,

and they’re like, 8 ounces. Tops.

BUT POPEYE MANAGES TO FUCK THIS UP.

Popeye got it into his head that he should train Grandma’s weirdo terrier mix “Spooky” to be a bird Dog, mostly because grandpa wouldn’t go hunting with him after Popeye shot him in the foot.  Grandma, already having two children, two normal cats, a profoundly stupid cat, a canary and a tarantula to look after, decided to let Spooky go with him.  

“She’ll be good supervision for him.”  grandma said.

We’re not sure what made Popeye think Spooky would be a good bird dog, because if all the dogs of the world were one together, what was left over was Spooky, to paraphrase my favorite Celtic fairy tale.  She was about 35lbs of smooth-coated solid black with long legs and half a tail.  She was named “Spooky” for the white patch on her chest that grandma said looked like a ghost late at night.  Spooky never barked, only made agitated garbage disposal noises and whistle-snorts.

But off into the Ohio Woods Popeye goes with Spooky, who is less than thrilled with this because she’d been a stray before, and was now very pleased with this new life of couches, indoor heating and fattening table scraps.  She does Not Like the woods.  The woods are cold and wet and full of ticks and she’d rather be at home, under the radiator perhaps.  

Eventually, they come across a woodcock, not in the woods but in the parking lot of the 7-11 after getting lost in the woods and deciding to get a slurpee and hot dog instead.  Spooky is halfway through eating her hot dog, sees the Woodcock derping along, and decides that Processed meat is better than whatever the fuck that is, and goes back to her hot dog.

Popeye decides to *demonstrate* what Spooky is supposed to do… by getting on his hands and knees and trying to jump on the woodcock to catch it with his mouth.

Spooky decided that this is madness, and goes home to collect my grandmother to come save his ass.  This was impressive, as spooky had no sense of direction and a slurpee cup stuck on her face when she arrived. 

By the time Grandma got down there, Popeye had gotten clawed in the face, pecked directly in the eye, eaten pavement, had the police called on him, and broke his wrist.

She did, however, get to see the bird as it came down from the roof.  It perched on his ass, Prreent-ed, and shat on him.

Electronic waste is poisoning poor workers. Now, biodegradable circuitry could help. 

  • Electronic waste is a serious danger to humans, animals and the environment.
  • The waste releases toxic chemicals like lead, and it’s already endangering the health of people in countries including India, Pakistan, Vietnam, Ghana and the Philippines, where there are informal recycling industries dedicated to burning and dismantling these abandoned parts.
  • Recycling printed circuit boards has led 80% of children in Guiyu, China — one of the world’s largest recycling sites — to suffer from respiratory ailments.
  • One study found that nearly 82% of Guiyu children had blood lead levels higher than normal.
  • Mostly women and children work at these digital dumping grounds, and they make only about $1.5 a day.
  • But now, a group of scientists in California are trying to fix that problem with new biodegradable circuitry.
  • With a little bit more development, this means that things like electronic sensors — which let your Apple Watch detect your pulse, for example — could basically melt into the ground someday, without releasing toxic chemicals. Read more (5/9/17)

Here’s a fun game you can play at home!

Regard the following statement:

“It’s wildly inappropriate to teach children about that sexual orientation.  It’s not based in who you love or want to have a relationship with, but just about sexual attraction.  It’s not normal.  Children don’t experience sexual urges, so there’s no reason to let them hear about that until they’re older.  It’ll only confuse them and trick them into thinking that they’re something they’re not.  Children can’t experience those things, and we shouldn’t risk letting them think they can lest they expose themselves to situations and knowledge they can’t handle.  It’s predatory and abusive to teach that to children.  The people who want them to know about this are sexualizing them and trying to recruit them into their community.  They are stealing children’s innocence under the guise of education and acceptance.  Children who are exposed to this will think of everything sexually instead of in terms of love and bonding.  We have to protect our children.”

Now guess!  Is the above statement:

A) From homophobes regarding homosexuality in sex ed

or

B) From aphobes regarding asexuality in sex ed

?

Can’t tell?  Neither can anyone else!  Making someone’s sexual or gender identity out to be all about sex has long been a tactic of bigots spreading hate in the name of protecting the children.

I found out today that the videos I’ve made discussing bisexuality and coming to terms with my sexual orientation are no longer available in age restricted mode because they are considered “potentially inappropriate.” The purpose of those videos is to educate people about LGBTQ issues, and more specifically, to show people questioning their own sexualities that they’re not alone and they are valid and normal. The fact that children and teens who may be questioning their own orientations may not have access to them is absolutely heart breaking to me. When I was younger, seeing LGBTQ characters represented in media meant everything to me. My first exposure to “homosexuality” was in a repressive catholic school environment where teachers repeatedly taught me that being gay or queer was a sin and would land you a one way ticket to hell. I didn’t even know bisexuality was a *thing* until high school. I was forced to cling to shows like Degrassi and, admittedly, Glee (problematic aspects of the show aside) to get a small understanding of my own sexuality and see parts of myself represented that I had yet to come to terms with. Representation is important and YouTube is a special form of media where LGBT perspectives and experiences are widely shared and accessible to everyone. I’m honestly devastated that questioning gay/queer/bi kids might be restricted from seeing videos that could inform, support, and affirm their experiences and help them feel a little less alone.

Let’s Talk About ADHD

Of all the mental disorders out there, none is taken less seriously than ADHD. Lots of people believe that it’s made up. Some people believe that ADHD is nothing more than bad parenting. And plenty of people believe that it’s an excuse to medicate otherwise normal children. But here’s the thing:

ADHD is a very real disorder, and it profoundly affects the lives of those who have it. 

Let’s look at some facts about people with ADHD:

- 35% of teens with ADHD will not complete high school - that’s double the dropout rate of average teens.

- 30% of kids with ADHD will fail a year of school, or be required to repeat a grade.

- 45% of kids with ADHD get suspended from school at some point.

- Only 5% of teens with ADHD will earn a college degree, compared to 28% of the general population.

- Only 0.06% of people with ADHD will earn a graduate degree, compared to 5.4% of the general population.

- They have four times as many car accidents as the general population.

- They are 4 to 9 times more likely to go to prison.

- They are 11 times more likely to be unemployed.

- 61% will be fired at some point, compared to 43% of the average population.

- They earn, on average, $2 less per hour than their non-ADHD counterparts.

- They run a significantly higher lifetime risk of depression, anxiety, and antisocial disorders than people without ADHD.

ADHD is not a made-up disorder; it is a very real thing that has a profound effect on the lives of people who have it. 

So what other myths about ADHD are floating around?

- Contrary to popular belief, ADHD is under-diagnosed. While there is some evidence to suggest that little boys are being over-diagnosed with it, girls are being grossly under-diagnosed. Teachers and parents’ are quick to recognize the disorder in boys; girls with ADHD, on the other hand, are dismissed as ‘ditsy’ or ‘spacey’, preventing them from getting the help they need. Doctors estimate that ADHD occurs equally in boys and girls, but boys are six times more likely to be diagnosed and treated.

- ADHD is not a childhood disorder. Studies have found that anywhere from 30% to a whopping 80% of childhood cases of ADHD continue on into adulthood, affecting sufferers for the rest of their lives. Even when cases don’t continue, the education gaps created in early years can affect a person long into adulthood.

- ADHD is not caused by diet. The vast majority of cases of ADHD are genetic. Other major causes include prenatal exposure to alcohol, and traumatic brain injuries. No cases are caused by food dyes, or excessive consumption of sugar.

- ADHD is not a “short attention span”. People with ADHD do not lack attention spans, they lack the ability to regulate their attention. When people with ADHD discover an activity that highly interests them, they can focus on it single-mindedly for hours, ignoring all other activities, much like you’d see in autism. 

- ADHD medication doesn’t turn kids into “zombies”. At least, not if they’re on the right one. The medications prescribed for ADHD are not addictive or dangerous. In kids with ADHD, the proper dose of of the right medication can ease symptoms and allow children to regulate their attention and control their impulses. Untreated children with ADHD are more likely to grow up to be drug or alcohol addicts; medication significantly reduces that risk. 

ADHD is one of the most common mental illnesses that any of us will encounter, but despite that, it remains poorly-understood, and is not treated as a serious disorder. People have grown skeptical of the disorder entirely, and look down on cases of ADHD as poor parenting or simple ‘drug-pushing’. The reality is that ADHD can make it extremely difficult to lead a normal life or achieve goals, and no one should look down on the treatments that make it possible for so many people to function.
