The Arkansas Sleep Experiments

by reddit user nazisharks

To Those Who Sleep

This happened a few years ago. You may have heard rumors if you’re on campus. Some even circulated online. Nobody knew what really happened. Because I’m the only one who knows and I kept quiet. For a multitude of reasons. None of them matter now. Here’s what really happened.

The four of us were handpicked for this experiment by Prof. Richardson because we’d all studied under him, worked under him, and, as much as anyone can, earned his confidence.

He said this one was different. We had to keep it quiet. He wanted to keep details to a minimum. All he would tell us before going in was that he required a month of our lives and that if he succeeded sleep would never again be a necessity.

Something that will always make me very angry is when people misdefine an orientation that they don’t identify with and insist that they know better than people who do identify with that label.

When you have bi people telling you that bisexual means attraction to two or more genders/attraction to more than one gender, *listen* to them. Don’t insist that bisexuality is really, “attraction to men and women”, “attraction to cis men and cis women”, “attraction to only two genders”, “attraction to the binary genders”, “attraction to the two sexes”, or anything else.

When you have asexual people telling you that asexual means sexual attraction to no genders/lack of sexual attraction, *listen* to them. Don’t insist that asexuality is really “always just internalized homophobia”, “about sex shaming”, “attraction without wanting sex”, “not wanting to fuck”, or anything else.

When you have aromantic people telling you that aromantic means romantic attraction to no genders/lack of romantic attraction *listen* to them. Don’t insist that aromanticism is really “wanting no-strings-attached sex”, “fucking someone and not calling the next day”, “not wanting relationships”, “not loving anyone”, or anything else.

Listen to people about their orientations. Don’t speak over them about their orientations. Don’t redefine their orientations to suit your needs of a “discourse” talking point so that people with these orientations are more easy to exclude (or even outright demonize). Stop acting like you know our orientations better than us.

the most beautiful 3-syllable-poem ‘beijing you like’ by cutie top hyung~

I feel like Damian used to say really sexist stuff but Jason has somehow taught him not to by consistently trapping him…
“Stop acting like a girl.”
“What’s wrong with being a girl?”
“You know what I mea-”
“So why did you say it?”
“I just meant-”
“Do you really think so little of your sisters?”
“TODD. I DIDN’T MEAN-”
“WHAT WOULD TALIA HAVE TO SAY?”

Almost everyone in Hogwarts knew who you were because of your superb skills when it came to Quidditch. You played as the Keeper in your house’s team, and students always idolized you because of how you always manage to block the Quaffle no matter how fast it zoomed or how far it was from your initial position. Though even if the name Y/N Y/L/N was known throughout the school, no soul would think of associating you with Draco Malfoy — much less know that you were indeed dating him.

It was never yours and Draco’s intention to hide your relationship, and honestly, you weren’t really hiding it to be precise. People still saw you with him in between classes, sometimes in Hogsmeade, and in subjects that you shared with him. The only thing was, it seemed like they were the ones who couldn’t accept that Draco was your boyfriend just because of your differences.

“Y/N!” someone had called you the moment you got outside from the classroom where your last period (Ancient Runes) was held, running towards you in enthusiasm and mock surprise.

That someone happened to be Ernie MacMillan, a Hufflepuff student that you knew had unwavering attraction to you no matter how many times you turned him down.

“Oh, hi, Ernie.” you didn’t bother to hide the disappointment in your tone.

He beamed at you. “What a coincidence? I was just about to go down myself and then I saw you. Clearly, we’re meant to be.

You gave him an exaggerated laugh. “Highly unlikely, but whatever you say.” you smiled before attempting to walk pass him.

“Great match last time, by the way.” he immediately followed you, causing you to subtly roll your eyes. “The way you caught the Quaffle when you were so far away! Wow!”

“Yes, well, I really must be going now so —”

“I was actually wondering if you’d like to go to Hogsmeade with me this weekend?” he cut you off, knowing that you were going to ditch him again. “Come on, Y/N. Just one date. That’s all I’m asking.”

“Too bad you won’t have it.” said Draco all of the sudden, joining the conversation.

You sighed in relief at his presence, and he smiled, putting an arm around you and kissing you on the temple. He then proceeded into ignoring Ernie who was now gaping at the sight of the two of you, Draco grabbing your things so that he’ll be the one carrying it as you go to the Great Hall.

Ernie finally found his voice. “But you’re so nice! And he’s so …” he grimaced.

“He’s actually better than you’ll ever be, Ernie.” you stated, annoyed by how he was giving your boyfriend a nasty look. “And seriously, stop acting like you didn’t know I was dating Draco all along.”

“I thought it was only a rumor or some dumb excuse to reject me.” Ernie admitted.

Draco sneered at him. “She rejects you because she doesn’t like you, MacMillan. Keep that stuck in your head, will you?”

“I just can’t believe she’d put up with you.” Ernie scowled at him.

“Yes, because she loves me and apparently, picked me.” Draco smugly told him. “So, if I were you, I’d stop acting desperate and move on.”

The Hufflepuff boy flushed, obviously defeated. “This ain’t over, Malfoy.”

“Of course, it is.” he scoffed.

You weren’t used to boys fighting over you that you found it amusing just to watch them argue and see Draco win. His words made you blush and you were probably grinning like mad, completely inappropriate for the scene in front of you.

Before things can get off had though, the tension in the air obvious as they both stare each other down, you softly patted Draco’s chest.

“Let’s go get dinner. I’m starving already.”

Draco nodded, fixing his eyes on Ernie one last time. “See you around, MacMillan. Hate to break the news that no one’s getting laid tonight. Well, not in your case, that is.” he chuckled, walking away then with arms still secured around you.

Once you were far, you nudged him on the ribs and he quirked an eyebrow.

“Thanks for saving me back there. He was starting to get pretty rude.” you admitted. “Not as rude as you were but …” you joked then, making him snort.

“You love me either way, right?”

“Hell yeah, I do.”

I was explaining the Batfam to someone, breaking down the characters, laying out the main timeline, blah blah blah, and I mentioned how “Dick Grayson was eight when Bruce took him in after his parents were killed,” and this guy scoffs and goes: “You don’t know what you’re taking about. Dick was twelve. Girl’s need to stop acting like they know comics.”

I grabbed my phone and shoved this in his face from the Wikia page:

“Dick Grayson was an eight-year-old circus acrobat, the youngest of a family act called The Flying Graysons of The Haly Circus . Dick joined the act at a very young age, having been trained in acrobatics from birth. Before one appearance in Gotham City, in which The Flying Graysons were the main attraction, they were asked to pose for a photo opportunity with Jack Drake and his family, including their young son, Tim Drake. From that time on Tim’s one and only hero in the world was Dick.

While on tour in Gotham City, he overheard "Boss” Tony Zucco, a well-known and feared crime lord, threaten the performers unless the circus’s owner paid protection money. The owner refused, and that night Dick watched in horror as his parents’ high wire snapped, sending his parents hurtling to their deaths, all while many of Gotham’s elite watched on. Young Dick felt responsible, because he failed to warn his parents in time.“

The guy got really mad and was like: "but in the cartoon-!”

“He was also eight when Bruce took him in. Fight me, you ass.”

He turned really red and I was like: “Yeah, which one of us needs to stop acting like they know comics?”

And he walked away.

Don’t you dare try to tell me I don’t know something about my ALL TIME FAVORITE CHARACTER simply because I’m a freaking girl.

Reminder

WITCHCRAFT IS NOT A SUBSTITUTION FOR MODERN MEDICINE

It pains me to an extreme that people on this site will ask others “hey what can I put in a tea for a divination?” or “What should I put in a tincture for this and that?”.  
1.) PLANTS AND HERBS ARE MEDICINE, STOP ACTING LIKE YOU KNOW HOW TO PRESCRIBE THEM LIKE A PROFESSIONAL
2.) You do not know any of these people on the internet, they could potentially give you something dangerous.  Like every single tea or tincture that says put mugwort or st johns wort in it, they do not know your medical history, they do not know how it will effect you, and I doubt most of these people will even know how those plants could effect you.
3.) How do you know that these people have any sort of medical knowledge or experience?
4.) Witchcraft is not and will never be a substitution for modern medicine.
And hey, if you are that interested in phytotherapy GO STUDY IT IN A PROFESSIONAL SETTING AND NOT ON SOME BLOGGING WEBSITE  

Medicine has come so far, go to your doctor not tumblr.

As Always

Reminder;

Killing Stalking was NOT made to represent all LGBT+, mental illness, etc. so please stop acting like it is and acting like this Manhwa, which is incapable of doing anything other than exist, is attacking you.

The fans, the creator, the F I C T I O N A L characters and the Manhwa haven’t done anything to you, so stop acting like its effecting you.

If you don’t like it, then just blacklist the tag and don’t read it. You don’t need to attack people because you have a different opinion from them, and your opinion does not equal fact, so stop acting like it is.

Do not act like fiction and reality are the same thing.

You’re basically saying that Fictional characters are More important than real people.

If you really want to help, do something for the REAL people who are being abused.

Attacking people for liking a Manhwa is not going to help in any way.

You don’t even know what fetishizing means, so stop acting like you do. Stop acting like you know everything. And for Christ’s sake, stop acting like abuse survivors, LGBT+, mentally ill, etc. people who don’t agree with your opinion are invalid. If you really think you’re helping by telling people what they went through and what/Who they are is invalid SIMPLY because they don’t agree with you, you’re only making things worse.

You being mentally ill, abused, LGBT+, etc. Does not give you a free pass to do whatever you want and attack anyone you want. You being a “minor” doesn’t make it right. NOTHING makes it right.

So just stop.

You can stop pretending, you can stop acting like you care. I know you don’t. I know I’m your backup plan and I’m sick of it. I thought you were different, maybe that’s why I’m hurting so much, but it doesn’t matter because I don’t mean as much to you as you made me think I did. Have fun with her because I’m done letting you break my heart.

Aries: At some point, you have to open up again. You have to stop pushing everyone who tried to get close to you away, because while you like being alone right now, you’re going to hate being lonely when the cold sets in. Winter is coming, my dear.

Taurus: Bandage your wounds yourself. Don’t let their sweet words be poison dripping onto already open wounds, and do not let them trick you into a sweet daydream that will be twisted into a nightmare. You know better than that, and it’s time you started showing it.

Gemini: I know that you hate what you see every day in the mirror and it makes you want to destroy yourself, but sweetheart, you truly are a beautiful work of art. I just wish you could see that, because you can look at anyone else and see that their eyes light up when you walk into the room.

Cancer: Do not let someone control you like that ever again. Never let someone’s word have such a big say over your life again, because it’ll only lead you right back into every place you’ve been trying to escape from. Take this as a lesson, and move on.

Leo: Close your eyes; it’s time to finally sleep. I know you’ve been to hell and back, and your nightmares seem to haunt you even more when you’re awake, but you can rest now. You’ve won this war, you’re the survival story, and it’s time for sleep now.

Virgo : Please find your self worth, wherever you’ve hid it. Even if it’s at the bottom of the bottle you keep hidden under your car seat, or in that pipe that resides in your nightstand drawer, or in the lips of the girl you don’t fucking love, find yourself again and know that you’re stronger than all the shit you’ve gone through.

Libra: Stop obsessing over the thoughts of every past you could have had, and of all of the bridges you never quite walked on, and be happy with the road you are on, because looking back will never serve you or them any good. It’s time to get your knees to stop shaking and start moving forward again.

Scorpio: It’s time you stopped using your thoughts to cut yourself open again and again. Stop using your memories to find brand new ways to hate yourself, it’s time to stop using the past like an exacto knife, and time to use it to smile, for everything that happened and everything it caused.

Sagittarius: It’s okay that you can’t seem to find your home, and that your skin still feels like a jail cell. You’ve been fighting demons for so long that you don’t know what peace really feels like, and I am so proud of you and everything you’ve done. It will be okay, my love, you are truly a hero.

Capricorn: Maybe those ghosts that you’ve been trying so desperately to keep locked inside your closet and gagged with old t-shirts, are truly trying to help you instead of hurt you once more, and it’s finally time to sit up and listen, because they know you and they know how to help.

Aquarius: Yes, they still think of you. Yes, they still miss you. But now it really doesn’t matter, because you’ve already burned that bridge, and ran so far away from all the things you’ve done, going back now would be pointless. You made the right choice, now please start acting like you know it.

Pisces: Stop trying to run away from everything good in your life, and everything precious that you dearly love, simply because you’re so terrified of destroying what little good exists in your world. The good that exists is there to stay. You can not destroy it. It is not glass, it is not fragile; you can not run from this.

“Before season 2 starts i want to remind everyone in the fandom that there wont be any angsty writing like in your fics, none of your Headcanon will be confirmed in the show, most of your ships won’t be together and please don’t get mad at the writers for it. Re watch the first season because it seems that the fandom has lost the track that Ladybug Is a family friendly show that is aimed at young audiance, it’s not a Show Like Avatar or Voltron. so just stop acting as if you know the show better than people who CREATED it.” 

dear abled people,

you’re allowed opinions, you’re allowed to be allies but please don’t speak over us. I dont care if you work with disabled people, care for a disabled person, are related to a disabled person or are dating/previously dated a disabled person. None of this gives you the right to speak over actual disabled people on issues concerning disability. stop acting like you know better than actual disabled people because of your relationships with disabled people.

                                         sincerely, 

                                   a disabled person,

        who is tired of being spoken over by our so-called allies.                                                                           

Y’all’ve gotta stop acting like you love Louis or could do more for Louis than Harry has/can. You’ve gotta stop acting like you know more about them or what they’ve been through or how that’s affected them than they do. You all are tearing yourselves apart and stressing yourselves out and being angry at Harry when you know nothing about the past few months, past year since hiatus, since things ramped up. You’ve gotta stop assuming. I’m mad about a lot of things pertaining to 1D and Louis and I will not stop screaming about them. My boy deserves better and I can’t wait for him to get it. But Harry? He ain’t do anything wrong. And you’ve gotta stop treating him like the villain. At the end of the day, Louis’s /his/ boy, you know? He’s got him. They’ve got each other. And it’s hard to watch but all we can do is sit back and be there, supporting him. Loudly. But turning your back on Harry in the name of Louis?? That’s not being there. That’s just making things worse I might even say. If they don’t see their professional lives as a competition, why should you? I get being mad and disappointed and sad at all Louis has been though and is going through – God knows I am too – but you’ve gotta stop directing all your hatred at that boy when there are /plenty/ of people it should be directed to. Just. When’s enough gonna be enough for you?
