tearlessrain:

Hey the thing I reblogged earlier reminded me to mention this:

I can promise all my followers that I do not post or reblog jump scares, ever, because A) I don’t like them and they suck, and B) I know at least a few of my followers have anxiety in one form or another and I’m not going to be that jerk.

So yes. There will be no jump scares from this blog, just wanted to ease your minds preemptively.

Seriously, it kills me when I see people hold scientists up as pinnacles of logic and reason.

Because one time the professor I was interning for got punched in the face by another professor, because mine got the funding, and told the other professor his theory was stupid.

This same professor told me to throw rocks to scare the “stupid fucking crabs” into moving so we could count them properly.

SCIENCE

thank you

this is one of the best comments this post has recieved

I have witnessed:

Two professors hiding around a corner and snickering, “Shhh, here she comes!” While a female professor approached and, when she finally found them, she proceeded to scream while pointing from one to the other, “You! I called your office but you weren’t there! So I tried to call YOUR office to figure out where HE was but YOU weren’t there!”

Two grad students standing outside a closed and locked door yelling, “Come out of the damn office. You haven’t left for days. If you didn’t have a couch in there I’d be concerned as to where you were sleeping!”

A religious studies professor apologizing for being late to class because, “security stopped me because I’m dressed like a hobbit”

Watched a professor snort the results of my experiment to determine if I had the right final compound.

Two archeology professors toss priceless fossilized teeth back and forth in an attempt to figure out who is smarter by “guessing the type of tooth and species of animal before it lands”

Multiple fully degreed individuals throw dry ice at one another in an attempt to be first to use the lab/get that piece of equipment/or change the iPod song.

A genetics professor build furniture out of stacks of paper and planks of wood because she is that far behind in grading papers/responding. One of the impromptu furniture pieces housed a fish tank.

I could go on but I think that covers the larger portion of the insanity…

Every time it comes around on my dash, it gets better.

I have had a professor buy a huge fuckoff bottle of rum during fieldwork in Costa Rica and let the undergrads get wasted because “you’re not underage in Costa Rica and we’ll be up all night with the bats anyway!”

- Same professor hung a bat from her headlamp and wore it as a decoration for an entire night. 

- A whole swarm of older women - and these are women with PhDs and world-renown bat experts, the bigwigs - all, to a woman, go to the formal charity dinner at an international research symposium in Toronto in late October dressed in skimpy Batgirl costumes. Because Halloween was that weekend, you see.

- At a different conference, a professor get blackout drunk and pass out on the side of the road. 

- “Yeah, we have to say we did it properly for the grant but to be really honest, Miracle-gro works better.”

- Teaching lab: we had liquid nitrogen for a demo, and after class the professor, the other TA, and I spent a good two hours freezing and breaking things in it. 

a chemistry class begins with 30 students nine months later just six of us left sitting on tables dipping paper into contaminated chemicals to see what happens when we burn it teacher making idle suggestions while he marks our work

"go to the fume hood thing, yeah now put some potassium in chlorine" can i burn the results sir? "fuck it sure whatever its tainted anyway"

The prof I’m working for just asked me if I knew how to pick a lock, and when I responded “yes” she replied, “see, this is why I hire the former delinquents instead of the suck-ups. You’re actually useful.”

I then let her into her office.

I once had a friend who was a physics professor at a prominent local university. One time, he got bored, made a super low-friction spinning stool, and created what was essentially a 30 pound gyroscope in a suitcase.

Then we all took turns playing with angular momentum until we puked.

Dear tumblr staff, here are some things that would be nice and make a lot of users happy:

  • ability to selectively make your posts unreblogable
  • ability to completely delete your post as well as all subsequent reblogs of that post
  • ability to disable fanmails. Not everyone wants to be interactable. considering these can be used to send phishing and malware links they also present a security risk to users.
  • a deeper and more helpful Ignore feature that addresses some of the current grievances that people have voiced with it’s functionality
  • nobody has ever wanted to reblog a text post as a link

Seriously. Disable fanmail and an actual blocking system. (And yeah, that last one. Really now.)

For those of you who just tuned in (or missed the 1 or 2 posts I made about this a week ago), I started physical therapy. My therapist told my that my spine is pretty fucking flexible, to the point where my ligaments aren’t doing their job, blah blah blah, core strength exercises. MEANWHILE, I’ve been googling shit about hypermobile joints, and there’s a lot of scary shit out there.

I know some people aren’t very flexible, but is that really all that unusual? SOMEBODY PLEASE PROVIDE SOME PERSPECTIVE I JUST DON’T UNDERSTAND.

Helloo someone with EDS3 here, try to discuss this with your doctor! Like I went for years undiagnosed because I was a dancer, and hypermobility is very common among dancers, but dislocations that happen frequently (ie more than once every 3 months) without any trauma (such as falling or something) isn’t! But if you have any questions about EDS, there is a huge community on here of people who have it! Though we are obviously no substitute for talking to your GP or rheumatologist! :)

See, the dislocations are what trip me up. I’ve never had any, as far as I’m aware. My hips do weird shit every once in a blue moon that might be subluxations? Like, they feel like they slide really far and there’s a sharp pain and something I can only describe as tension that radiates through my whole hip, but the pain doesn’t last and it’s only tender for a day or two. Also, judging by what my brother’s finger joints can do, I can pull all my finger joints out of socket, but there’s no pain.

The more I write this down, the more I realize I really ought to make an appointment with my GP :P

Yeah best thing to do is ask! Because even if it isn’t EDS, it could still be joint hypermobility syndrome which should be addressed as well! I was dislocating things for years but didn’t think much of it because I was always able to put it back in myself. I didn’t even think of it as dislocation! I thought of it as “my shoulder hurts and feels off, it just needs to pop!”

The best thing to remember though is it isn’t as scary as it seems! Being diagnosed with either thing isn’t some sort of scary life sentence. :)

It’s not nearly as freaky as some of the other things I’ve thought I might have, tbh. All of the potential negative long-term effects I’m seeing for EDS-III are things I was already expecting to happen to me just from watching my mom and her siblings (or I’m already experiencing them, so I know I can survive those!). At this point, I’m just weirded out by all of the stuff I didn’t realize was unusual!

I swear I’m going to stop googling shit soon and go to sleep, but I honestly didn’t know that other people’s hands don’t do this? But according to this video, it’s a rare congenital malformation?
