it’s a bind, you know

when people complain about representation they say “well, make it yourself”

but then when queer people only play queer roles and when jews write about jews and when black people make parts for other black people etc people ask “so are you ever going to step out of that niche? when are you going to make stuff for everybody?”

As someone who wants to study the human consciousness I found this very interesting.

Scott Routley was a “vegetable”. A car accident seriously injured both sides of his brain, and for 12 years, he was completely unresponsive.

Unable to speak or track people with his eyes, it seemed that Routley was unaware of his surroundings, and doctors assumed he was lost in limbo. They were wrong.

In 2012, Professor Adrian Owen decided to run tests on comatose patients like Scott Routley. Curious if some “vegetables” were actually conscious, Owen put Routley in an fMRI and told him to imagine walking through his home. Suddenly, the brain scan showed activity. Routley not only heard Owen, he was responding.

Next, the two worked out a code. Owen asked a series of “yes or no” questions, and if the answer was “yes,” Routley thought about walking around his house. If the answer was “no,” Routley thought about playing tennis.

These different actions showed activity different parts of the brain. Owen started off with easy questions like, “Is the sky blue?” However, they changed medical science when Owen asked, “Are you in pain?” and Routley answered, “No.” It was the first time a comatose patient with serious brain damage had let doctors know about his condition.

While Scott Routley is still trapped in his body, he finally has a way to reach out to the people around him. This finding has huge implications.

HOLY STEAMING SHITFUCKS

WHY IS EVERYONE NOT LOSING THEIR SHIT ABOUT THIS

What a fucking nightmare, just kill me.

I know a girl who was hit by a drunk driver and in that state for a year. When she woke up the first thing she did was tell off the doctor who tried to convince her mom to pull the plug. She heard *everything* while being called brain dead.

OH MY FUCK

Update pakistan; 
1. They are stopping people from giving blood to protestors who are bleeding out
2. They are forcing doctors not to report number of deaths and injuries
3. They have hit people with real steel bullets instead of rubber one’s
4. They are sending severely injured people home without giving them proper treatment

Making out with a girl for the first time is the coolest thing and the second coolest thing is driving home and getting aware of all the parts of your face where she was and tasting her lip balm on your lips. The third coolest thing is outer space.

Ok so I went to brunch with hawkwardly because we’re ridiculous hipsters like that. And we discussed more gender bent Newt and Hermann, and I just had to draw some more random head cannons. 

Lady!Newt would totally have large gauge tentacle earrings. Kate said she’d probably be really experimental with her hair (maybe shave suction cup patterns and stuff like that). Plus, maybe she has a large collection of wigs for funsies. I think she’d have all sorts of patterns leggings with scales or monsters or space on them. 

Lady!Hermann would have a sparkly/bejeweled eyeglass chain. Maybe a gift from Newt, which she complains is too showy, but secretly loves the bling. I think her trousers would look really cute in a more cigarette pant cut, but she keeps them a smidge too short to make sure she doesn’t get any entrails on the hems. She still rocks some wicked pairs of oxfords. I think she’d wear grandma blouses with scalloped collars, that are hella hip…but totally not on purpose. 

OKAY
