Crazy, Doctor, and Dogs: vaspider When I was ten years old, a dog bit the back of my head. The doctor said, within earshot but out of sight- he didnt think I could hear him-that had the dog's teeth been a little longer, they could have gone in under my skull. Hit my brain stem. Killed me, crippled me I don't know whether or not he was right. All I know is that for a decade and a half after that, I harbored a complete and unreasoning terror of dogs. It didn't matter how big they were, or how tame, or how kind. Someone else could assure me that they were the best dog in the world, that they knew the dog that he would never hurt anyone, and it didn't matter, because I was convinced that any dog could suddenly turn on me, bite me hard enough to kill me There were two dogs I slowly learned to trust during that time period. And eventually, I learned to understand dogs again, to understand their body anguage, to like them again, because my husband convinced me to get a puppy, to raise a dog from when it was smal, that this would help me get over my fea No one ever told me I was crazy or irrational for not wanting to be around dogs after l'd been attacked and nearly killed by one. No one. For fifteen years, it was understandable that I would be afraid -terribly, unreasoningly afraid - of dogs. A dog attacked me. I bore the traumatic scars. I found dogs terrifying unpredictable. I could not trust any of them no matter how kind they'd beern to my friends, no matter how well-recommended they came or how well they'd been raised not to turn on me and injure me When I was fifteen, I was raped. Do I even need to finish this? goddess3 THIS IS WHAT I SAY ALL THE FUCKING TIME AND NO ONE UNDEFSTANDS What some people really need to understand

Children, Cute, and Facts: pervocracy child handling for the childless nurse My current job has me working with children, which is kind of a weird shock after years in environments where a "young" patient is 40 years old. Here's my impressions so far: Birth 1 year: Essentially a small cute animal Handle accordingly; gently and affectionately, but relying heavily on the caregivers and with no real expectation of cooperation. Age 1- 2: Hates you. Hates you so much. You can smile, you can coo, you can attempt to soothe; they hate you anyway, because you're a stranger and you're scary and you're touching them. There's no winning this so just get it over with as quickly and non- traumatically as possible. Age 3-5: Nervous around medical things, but possible to soothe. Easily upset, but also easily distracted from the thing that upset them Smartphone cartoons and "who wants a sticker?!!?!?" are key management techniques. Age 6- 10: Really cool, actually. I did not realize kids were this cool. Around this age they tend to be fairly outgoing, and super curious and eager to learn. Absolutely do not babytalk; instead, flatter them with how grown-up they are, teach them some Fun Gross Medical Facts, and introduce potentially frightening experiences with "hey, you want to see something really cool?" Age 11 14: Extremely variable. Can be very childish or very mature, or rapidly switch from one mode to the other. At this point you can almost treat them as an adult, just... a really sensitive and unpredictable adult. Do not, under any circumstances, offer stickers. (But they might grab one out of the bin anyway.) Age 15 18: Basically an adult with severely limited life experience. Treat as an adult who needs a little extra education with their care Keep parents out of the room as much as possible, unless the kid wants them there. At this point you can go ahead and offer stickers again, because they'll probably think it's funny. And they'll want one. Deep down, everyone wants a sticker. mikkeneko This is also a pretty excellent guide to writing kids of various ages Child handling for nurses

Anaconda, Future, and Juice: Not everything will be 100% accurate SPACE DID NOT TRY OUT. SORRY FOR THE CONFUSION Rascal wasn't happy that OGE was brought in without any try outs. xac agreed Rascal would baby rage. Rascal was straight up bought from Spitfire. He didn't have a say and was wasn't happy about the move? Rascal didn't perform well enough early on so not much changed. xQc felt players had no say in the team. Doesn't think they should get a new support but try another support and another off-tank. Rascal talked a lot in matches but wouldn't listen When the team would complain Kyky said there wasn't much he could do. Space eame in for tryouts- xQc was praying Space. xQc, Custa wanted him to come into to the team. But obviously they didn't have any say When Fuel starts to play like garbage, Effect develops a different play style. More aggressive, more "soloQ" it was unpredictable but sometimes it could work. Literally no plans during games some times. Lots of arguing. Chips just disappears. Custa was the only consistent good thing about the team. Doesn't understand why they risked trading him. ase Thump Seagut He pve up gcd treaming oppotuntsan 'sn e ench xQc feels really sad now he's talking about his release from OWL. Loved the Fuel. Doesn't have anything left. Didn't scrim much when he was in the team. Sacrificed the Juice just like Seagull but he never saw a "future". This is actually really sad... He said "What's left? Just the experience?" His parents didn't believe in him... xQc didn't want any handout while being in the team. He wanted someone to believe in him. The only reason he played against LAG was because the owner said fuck it he was unbanned Doesn't understand why OWL didn't hire someone to monitor player behavior. To give warnings to things like TriHard7 If anybody from Blizzard is listening to this. Please fixed ranked. Role distribution is a mess. SoloQ for main tanks sucks. He feels it's hard to scout for new talent. Its one wave of players and that's it. He wouldn't be able to find a good Main Tank that isn't already on a team. Cocco has his own problems. Doesn't believe Mickie was given the proper guidance to re-new his play style and knowledge of D.va. The success earlier on wasn't because Mickie was on Winston but because Seagull was on D.va AKM is a soldier bot. Only works if the team pockets him shddragons: j_jon on reddit summed up xqc’s stream
