I think everyone knows that you’re supposed to “life with your legs not with your back” but for a lot of people who don’t usually lift things I think they might not know what that means. It means you’re not supposed to engage your back muscles to lift, at all. Your back is supposed to remain completely straight when moving heavy things. Don’t bend over to pick up something heavy; instead, squat and use your leg and arm muscles to bear the load. I’ve thrown out my back before and trust me on this, you don’t have to be carrying something super heavy to hurt yourself, and it’s not fun. And there’s no shame in simply pushing something across the floor instead, or getting a second person to help you.
For anyone in SoCal or the Southwest, excessive heat warnings have been issued for Phoenix, LA, Las Vegas and record temperatures have already been recorded. Stay safe this week and make sure you’re aware of the signs of heat stroke and heat exhaustion!
I know you guys want to catch them all, but I don’t appreciate feeling scared and unsafe when I hear someone in my backyard. This is my private property and it’s supposed to be my safe haven, my home is off limits.
That goes for any private property.
I understand how important this game is to you, now please understand how important my safety is for me. I also don’t want any of you to get arrested or hurt because you wanted to catch a pokemon.
Just please be reasonable while playing this game. Please.

So… what does this mean? I’m not sure about other countries, but the agency of health in Canada has deemed borax unsafe, and recommends that it should not be used for children’s arts and crafts, especially including slime.
CRAP I’VE USED THIS STUFF CRAP CRAP WILL I DIE?No, you won’t. This is just an advisory, and it’s prolonged exposure that isn’t healthy for kids or expecting women. Just don’t use it from now on.
Well, how else will I make my slime?There are so many other liquid starch based and plasticine based recipes out there that work just as well, if not better! I’ll make a masterpost of some soon.
BE CAREFUL FRIENDS, SLIME SAFE, AND SLIME HAPPY!
******Even if you aren’t an avid tumblr slimer or slime account, boosting this would be much appreciated!
Just wanted to let you all know - I’m sure I’m not the only one who has been getting inbox spam lately - starts with ‘hi’ or similar and if you reply you quickly end up with a request for photos or private chat. They have blogs with nothing on, fairly nondescript urls and a selfie of a young woman as their avatar.
I wanted to give my advice for younger/vulnerable people on here, so I hope you’ll forgive me sounding like your mum.
Here’s my suggestion, if you get a message from someone you don’t know and who isn’t following you, with an empty blog:
Don’t reply to the message.
Mark it as spam if you want to - I’ve started doing that.
Don’t ever send pictures of yourself.
Don’t feel pressured into chatting with someone you don’t know or sharing anything personal.
I have no clue what the gain is for people doing this but I guess they are hoping people will get talked into sharing images.
Stay safe. If you’re not sure something is a good idea, it probably isn’t - trust your instinct. If you feel uncomfortable, stop. Ask someone in real life that you trust - a parent, a responsible adult..
Look after yourselves and avoid nonsense.
