This is a summary of college only using two pictures; expensive as hell.

That’s my Sociology “book”. In fact what it is is a piece of paper with codes written on it to allow me to access an electronic version of a book. I was told by my professor that I could not buy any other paperback version, or use another code, so I was left with no option other than buying a piece of paper for over $200. Best part about all this is my professor wrote the books; there’s something hilariously sadistic about that. So I pretty much doled out $200 for a current edition of an online textbook that is no different than an older, paperback edition of the same book for $5; yeah, I checked. My mistake for listening to my professor.

This is why we download. 

Spreading this shit like nutella because goddamn textbooks are so expensive. 

not necessarily art related but as someone who couldn’t afford their textbooks this semester this is a godsend

REBLOGGING because after a little digging, I found my $200 textbook for free in PDF form.

friendly reminder that this exists since I know we’re all going back to college soon

Will reblog every time I see it.

Road de-icing salt is treated and what it has in it in addition to plain rock salt for the most part is urea (fertilizer) and other chemicals. Rock salt is ground down and in that process there would be pointed shards that could imbed in the orbit of the eye. With it having the chemicals and being organic the docs would want it out asap to prevent infection.

• Foreign body in the orbit. “Suspicion of this usually arises because of the circumstances surrounding the injury,” he says. “For example, if the patient was in a car accident involving broken glass or was hit with a beer bottle, glass fragments could be embedded in the orbit. If the patient was riding a bike and went into a tree, there could be wood fragments in the orbit. You should be especially suspicious if there are perforating wounds through the eyelids or globe.” Dr. Dolman says a CT scan or MRI can help to rule out the presence of a foreign object in the orbit; in most cases this type of problem would be managed by an oculoplastic or orbital surgeon.

"Management can be delayed in many cases," he notes. "If the foreign object is a small metal fragment such as a BB pellet, you may be able to leave it alone as long as it isn’t injuring the globe or pressing on the optic nerve. However, any material that’s close to the surface or impinging on structures, or is organic or copper, should be removed quickly to prevent inflammation or infection.”

This is super helpful - thank you!  I like how it breaks down different types of eye injuries as well (i.e. car crash, bike accident, beer bottle).  Kind of offers a point of reference.

So, from what I’m gathering, surgery would only be needed in this kind of situation if the eye became infected.  Right?  So as long as the initial saline flush was successful (although, as knitty described it, it wouldn’t be particularly pleasant!), and the followup treatment to prevent infection? (I’m assuming that you have to do some eye care after) was successful, then eye surgery wouldn’t be required.  But if an infection formed due to fragments still embedded in the eye, then surgery would be required.  Yes?  No?

The docs would probably do the surgery right away if there was a sliver of road type rock salt embedded in the eye once they figured out what it was. They wouldn’t know if it came straight out of the bag or out of the gutter; either way they’d want it out to keep infection from even starting, so yeah it’s possible a surgery could have been done within hours to a day later. Then there’d be a course of antibiotics or maybe even a imuno boot with the peanutbutter shot.

That makes sense.  Thank you!  Your input has been tremendously helpful (and it certainly clears up a lot of different things at once!).

Out of curiosity, what’s the peanutbutter shot?

The peanut butter shot is an injection of gamma globulin. It’s used to give a boost to the immune system. It’s given in the butt and it feels like you’re being given an injection of peanut butter through a needle the size of a sewer pipe. I got it in the military and it hurts like a sonofabitch. If you’re small it’s split into two shots, one for each cheek.

And now I know what both saline solutions are for and what the peanut butter shot is!  <3  Thanks, gaaz.

Welcome :) 

When my nephew got it last year in basic he said he scooted and rocked on his butt for like an hour trying to get the lump to go down. A friend got it when he got severe strep and had to record in a few days, he couldn’t walk without limping or sit comfortably for about three days.

Saline flushing : sterilized saline solution used to clean wound. Just like normal saline solution (sterilized) you use to clean normal cuts or nasal flushing or throat gargling. Normal tap water have chlorine and other chemicals and possible presence of bacteria and organism hence saline solution for cleaning cuts and scrapes. Eyes are fragile so they won't clean it with iodine (those brown solution) or heaven forbid hydrogen peroxide (old school and shouldn't be used anymore).

trufflemores:

Oh my goodness why would you put that in anyone’s eyes.  (re: hydrogen peroxide).

So, I’m getting the impression from all of this that a lot of it is dependent on the sort of chemical reactions that slushy+rock salt had more so than the actual impact injury itself.  Coming back to my lovely nonnie from before, a tree branch would be more of an impact-related injury.  Even though Blaine was slushied at close range (and with a fair amount of force, if you watch the gifs), it wasn’t actually that hard.  A tree can snap at you with quite a bit of force.  A liquid?  Not so much.  

But the substance was probably pretty lethal: as knitty mentioned, you’ve got the slushy components (sugar, corn syrup, ice - Kurt once described a slushy facial as “getting bitch-slapped by an iceberg”) and then the rock salt mixing together.  The rock salt causes scratches, the slushy further irritates said scratches.  End result: a lot of pain.  So they go to the hospital for a saline flush and that - would get the job done?  Or would further medical action be required?  It’s the substances that are the most confusing.  Would the rock salt be flushed out easily or would it require some sort of surgery?

With the way Blaine was grinding the heels of his palms into his eyes, he could have pushed a piece in deeper than if he’d just covered his eyes.

That tweet convo between Dana Delaney, Chris Colfer et al has me missing Captain Colleen McMurphy. Sigh. 

Seriously, everyone was citing her recent work when the “Who’s Dana Delaney?” questions started, and I’m all MOTHERFUCKING CHINA BEACH!

I think what I love the most is that she’s in her fifties. She is the ultimate member of the Tumblr Geriatric Ward and the Disrespectful Fan Girl club and I love her for it. She put in words what we all think, if we’re being honest. He looks 17 and he’d be worth every penny.

Yes! She shall forever be the mascot/patron saint of the Tumblr Geriatric Ward. All hail Dana!

All hail Dana! And yes, China Beach!

Can we also note that she was in Wild Palms, a mini-series _so_ early 90s it was based on a comic strip in Details, had David Lynch as one of its directors, and featured a cameo from William Gibson?  And it was about virtual reality, Los Angeles royalty, and celebrity cult religion that was totally supposed to be Scientology?  And the future looked and sounded like the early ’60s?

God, that miniseries was a glorious piece of crazy.

Don’t forget the weirdness that was ‘Exit to Eden’

2014 Kurt Hummel Big Bang 

Title: Signs of Things Unseen 

Author: marauder-in-warblerland

Betas: gluttonous-penguin and amongsoulsandshadows, my betas, my cheerleaders, and my comrades in arms.

Artist: gaazhagens

Summary: It’s been four years since high school and Blaine’s resigned himself to being “too intense” for anyone who matters. That is, until he meets a young actor whose life has become a constant performance. Tomorrow, Kurt will fly to New York and Blaine will go back to class, but for fourteen hours, all of Columbus is their playground.

Warnings: Finn Hudson as a minor (if pivotal) character, background Samcedes, platonic Blam, light D/s and power play, I won’t list specific acts here, but I’m happy to do so for anyone who asks. My Columbus is intentionally fictional. All walking distances are made of words and fairy dust.

Notes: Thanks to @chiasmuslovesme for commenting on an early version of chapters one through three, as well as to orangegirl22wowbright, and foramomentonly for their writing motivation when the boys refused to color within the lines.

I’m still gonna finish that last art piece. Real life went a little weird.

I know a lot of people were happy to see Kurt displaying a sex drive for a minute, but don’t you think it’s dumb as mayonnaise for the writers to let him rub his ass all over Santa’s dick when most days he only barely gets to hug his fiance like a brother? Also, he was roofied and tied-up on the bed, and even though the ropes were tinsel, that doesn’t make it any less awful. Glee thinks sexual assault imagery is the funniest damn thing.

The Backlot 5x08 recap (x)

I´m going to, for the second time, ask everyone reblogging this to look up sympthoms of being roofied. Kurt wasn´t. Not trying to take anything else you feel about the episode awy from you, you get to have feelings, but it´s really not okay to perpetuate these lies Heather pulled out of her finger to highlight her point. It´s not true, okay? And it´s insulting Kurt as well as assault survivors.

(and before you ask, it´s insulting to Kurt because while he was saying yes, he was doing so consentually, and by taking that away from him, you´re taking his right to decide what he wants away, and guess who ended up doing that?)

Do. the. research. Please.

(via anothersillyromantic)

My cousin’s girlfriend was roofied this year. She literally stepped away for a second, thought her boys had her drink, they thought she did, and the next thing she literally was not in control of her body, her thoughts, or her autonomy. Luckily, the guys she was with recognised the symptoms, and got her home as quickly as they could. She looked - apparently - like she’d been hit by a truck the following day, and felt worse. She was drugged. It’s not a hangover. She was sweating, babbling, shaking, and physically not herself. 

The Kurt of this situation was not on the come down from being roofied. He wasn’t really on the come down from being drunk. He was buzzed when he took Cody to his room, but he was 100% in control of the situation, up until he wasn’t.

That does not diminish your reaction to what happened to him. The situation was gross. I don’t feel like it was played for a cheap laugh. You were supposed to be horrified, and shocked, and upset. Hopefully, you were all of those things, because having your autonomy stripped from you is terrifying, even if you were not physically violated, the threat that it could have happened is traumatic enough. (I have another story for that one, if you’re interested.) Kurt’s emotional trauma was more on an embarrassment level. 

Santana saying she felt like she did after she got roofied bears examination. Examination of sex and women (and sex and Glee in general) would be interesting.  

But stripping Kurt of sexual autonomy because one person in the loft said “roofied” isn’t cool either.

fun fact: the reason that the plural of goose is geese but the plural of moose is not meese is because goose derives from an ancient germanic word undergoing strong declension, in the pattern of foot/feet and tooth/teeth, wherein oo is mutated to ee. however ‘moose’ is a native american word added to the english lexicon only ~400 years ago, and lacks the etymological reason to be pluralized in that way.

Moose - a badly enunciated version of Mooz. So the plural of Moose is Moozoog.
