shoutout to every time i wanted 2 kill myself but i spent hours taking selfies to distract myself instead!!!!!!! there will be times you do not want to be the star of your own story but you are the star and it is important to be present or to try to be present, make evidence of you trying, it is not easy to try, it is not easy to exist, you do not move on, you move through, you break down the weight and despair into something tangible and you have to surround yourself in the evidence. you exist you exist you take up space! right where you are! i love the space i take up i love the space my friends take up, i miss the space my friends took up, it will never be filled, nobody can fill it. heavy weights. i will fight every time it gets hard because i know that beyond the stupid fucking grossness of depression there is a big big big endless fire of rage and love i have to share with the world i will not let it go out not ever not even by myself. i will fight every inch of the way and i will look back and i will be able to say i can’t believe i survived myself
Kids are putting Drano, tin foil, and a little water in plastic drink bottles and capping it up - leaving it on lawns, in mail boxes, in gardens, on driveways etc. just waiting for you to pick it up intending to put it in the rubbish, but you’ll never make it!!!
If the bottle is picked up, and the bottle is shaken even just a little - in about 30 seconds or less it builds up enough gas which then explodes with enough force to remove some your extremities. The liquid that comes out is boiling hot as well.
Don’t pick up any plastic bottles that may be lying in your yards or in the gutter, etc.
Pay attention to this. A plastic bottle with a cap. A little Drano. A little water. A small piece of foil. Disturb it by moving it; and BOOM!! No fingers left and other serious effects to your face, eyes, etc.
Please ensure that everyone that may not have email access are also informed of this.
Clear the area around it. It will explode on its own in time.
Once it explodes, do not make contact with the liquid inside. If needed, flush it away with large amounts of water.
Do not try to detonate it. You’ll probably be disfigured.
I’ve seen what these can do. The acidic liquid inside can strip the paint off a car.
when i visited vancouver these were everywhere. it’s not a fucking joke they’re actually scary
Just a reminder that there are awful shitty people out there doing awful shitty things to everyone else
there was a bunch of these at disneyland
i found one in my back yard, when i let my dogs out, i pulled them back inside, took my cousins bb shotgun and shot it from a safe distance (i was in my house and shot from the screen door. When it went off, my family and neighbors came running to see if everything was ok. I told them what happened and to watch out for them.
These things are not a joke! When we went to check the damage there was a fucking hole in the ground. The dirt in my yard is like CLAY.
Aevin Dugas has spent the last 14 years growing her hair and her record-breaking natural afro has entered Guinness Book of Records.
Aevin says her hair is inspiring legions of women to ditch chemical straighteners and ‘go natural’. Her hair is 4ft 4ins around. She says that when her hair is stretched out to its complete length and pressed, it goes down to her butt.
Her jaw-dropping look brings her attention wherever she goes but it does have its drawbacks as she often gets it caught in trees, car doors and people’s earrings. Despite loving her hair, she has to tie it back while driving as it is so difficult to see past it. It can also take two days to wash and dry. She shampoos it and then uses up to five conditioners, then puts it into two French braids and from then it takes about two days to dry.
Her biggest joy is inspiring young girls to stop using chemical straighteners, which can cause long-lasting damage to hair. She said: ‘I don’t know why but there’s something very important to me about little girls appreciating my hair and then wanting to wear their hair the same. I tell them there is nothing that I did special, there is no magical formula, we are born with our hair like this.’
