Fire, Guns, and Lit: Philip Clarke @ClarkePhil Follow As a teacher, I knocked myself out headbutting ceiling pretending to be a particle, star-jumping off a desk. I've set my arm on fire when lit ethanol trickled down sleeve, from my hand. l've burnt my ear listening if gas was coming out of a bunsen. Please don't give me a gun. 7:36 PM - 22 Feb 2018 103,197 Retweets 399,808 Likes ae) ▼ <p><a href="https://mornington-the-crescent.tumblr.com/post/171500516299/elpatron56-planetholland-why-are-you-even" class="tumblr_blog">mornington-the-crescent</a>:</p> <blockquote><p><a href="http://elpatron56.tumblr.com/post/171496607475/planetholland-why-are-you-even-allowed-in-a" class="tumblr_blog">elpatron56</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a href="http://planetholland.tumblr.com/post/171496491563/why-are-you-even-allowed-in-a-science-class-if" class="tumblr_blog">planetholland</a>:</p> <blockquote><p>Why are you even allowed in a science class if your too stupid to know basic lab safety techniques</p></blockquote> <p>“I’m retarded therefore everyone else is also one“<br/></p> </blockquote> <p>Don’t want a gun?

I don’t know everyone’s acting like the suggestion is to just hand out guns to every single teacher. Most people I’ve seen are just asking for the option to be available if they want to bring a gun of their own and go through the appropriate training. Think whatever you will about that but don’t misrepresent the argument.</p>

Breastfeeding, Cool, and Free: Leag lllusa.org NURSING STRIKES What are they and what you can do Nurse the baby in his sleep. This is probably the most commonly helpful suggestion. "Sometimes a baby who has been nursing happily for months suddenly stops nursing altogether, refusing the breast when it's offered. This is different than weaning because it happens so abruptly. Often the baby is clearly unhappy but still unwilling to breastfeed. This is a nursing strike.' Some causes include: Sing, rock, or dance with your baby with your shirt open or off so she may be relaxed enough to latch. Laying with both baby and parent naked in bed may also help. earache or stuffy nose loud noise that startled them while nursing change in milk taste change in lotion, perfume, orDon't offer for a day or so (while detergent Offer a whole new position or place-sitting facing you, in a baby carrier, laying down with baby on top, in the bath, on a bouncy ball, outside. . pumping to maintain supply) to let tensions cool.

This is a marathon of EVERY EPISODE (all 203) of <i>Teen Titans Go!</i> repeated 2.5 times in a row. Who asked for this? Who asked for “instead of a decent or just remotely tolerable Christmas schedule, maybe with some of those <a href="https://cnschedulearchive.tumblr.com/post/168612174975/lemme-tell-you-something-the-upcoming-christmas"><b>old specials we put on the app</b></a>, let’s just run a show we have already marathoned for almost every other major holiday or premiere this year for EIGHT DAYS??”</p> <p>I mean seriously, I’m just… shocked. This is seriously like, <a href="https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/133702618856816640/239881294710833163/unknown.png">a joke schedule I probably made to joke around on Discord once</a>. It even has the small bit of <i>Steven Universe</i>.</p> <p>Oh yeah, there’s <i>Steven Universe</i>. I hope you noticed that. I hope you noticed those TWO episodes it has, both being TV premieres (Sadie Killer, Kevin Party). 1 week before the <i>SU</i> half-hour special that will probably get super-hyped by CN. Those two episodes makes this schedule just even more absurd. The <i>TTG</i> marathon could have stopped that day. It could have stopped after <i>SU</i>. But nevertheless, it persisted.</p> <p>New Years Eve is the absolute stopping point for the marathon. <i>Unikitty!</i> premieres on the 1st and will start getting all the attention for a month at least. So there’s an end. But still. Eight. Fucking. Days. I don’t mean to curse on a blog about, well, Cartoon Network. But still. EIGHT. FUCKING. DAYS.</p> <p>I-I try to find silver linings in every terrible CN schedule. Like that one from <a href="https://cnschedulearchive.tumblr.com/post/163517491970/normally-i-wait-until-sunday-to-post-this-stuff">August</a>. “At least they’re giving <i>OK K.O.! </i>a lot of trust!” But… I don’t… think I can find a silver lining in this. <i>SU </i>is just aired because it was advertised so and that they need to air those episodes before “Lars of the Stars” and “Jungle Moon” the week after. So, here’s my attempt at a silver lining for this… you don’t need to watch this. You could be watching <a href="https://cnschedulearchive.tumblr.com/post/168612174975/lemme-tell-you-something-the-upcoming-christmas"><b>the holiday specials that CN posted on their app</b></a>. Make your own schedule out of that. I could watch “Hey Hey It’s Knishmas” all the doo-dah day if I wanted to.</p> <p>Yeah, I know. The silver lining is basically “don’t watch CN this week.” But, yeah. It’s got to the point where that’s my suggestion. Good luck trying to catch a Christmas special on Boomerang, btw. <b><a href="https://cnschedulearchive.tumblr.com/post/168612174975/lemme-tell-you-something-the-upcoming-christmas">Just the app or cable on demand.</a></b></p> <p>2017 has been one heck of a year for the network. You had two new shows! <i>Ben 10</i> and <i>OK K.O.!</i> First show is alright, second show is amazing! Then <i>Teen Titans</i> showed up! Then the original <i>Ben 10</i> showed up! Then <i>Regular Show</i> showed up after ending in January! Then <i>Ben 10</i> and <i>Regular Show</i> disappeared quickly. But that was expected. The bigger surprise is that <i>Teen Titans</i> is still on the lineup.</p> <p>But the schedule had problems. <i>Teen Titans Go!</i> marathons were getting longer. More frequent. More pointless. I thought there would be some nice stuff for Christmas. I thought the <a href="https://cnschedulearchive.tumblr.com/post/168612174975/lemme-tell-you-something-the-upcoming-christmas"><b>holiday specials they put on the CN app</b></a> were a good sign.</p> <p>I shouldn’t have hope.</p> <p>Merry Christmas!</p> <h2>Here’s what’s new that week:</h2> <ul><li> <i><b>Steven Universe</b></i> - Friday (12/29) at 7:30p</li></ul><h2>Top… 2:</h2> <ol><li> <i><b>Teen Titans Go!</b></i> - 384 - 99%</li> <li> <i><b>Steven Universe</b></i> - 2 - 1%</li> </ol><p>I don’t usually post schedules from over a week from now, but I just had to for this. I don’t think anything will change on the schedule. Maybe the order of which episodes air, but that doesn’t really matter. If there’s something more drastic, like, say, CN ending the marathon early for some surprise reason, I’ll be there to change the pic.<br/></p> </blockquote>

Celtic, Driving, and Heaven: Adrian Bott @Cavalorn Follow l did some research into 'the veil between the worlds' a while back. Not a single example of a pre-Victorian use 5:53 AM -30 Oct 2017 53 Retweets 115 Likes O@ ⑤ 垂線) Iweet your reply Adrian Bott @Cavalorn 12h Replying to @Cavalorn The concept of 'thin places' (where the 'veil between worlds' is thin) was even worse - deemed 'ancient Celtic', actually invented in 1938. 2 26 51 Adrian Bott @Cavalorn 10h Obviously if 'the veil between worlds' is a Victorian invention then the belief that Samhain is when 'the veil is thinnest' is equally bogus 1 8 21 Adrian Bott @Cavalorn 10h Currently trying to track down the earliest reference to Samhain being the time when the veil grows thin'. Suspect it will be in 1970s. 10 2 28 Adrian Bott @Cavalorn 10h The fact that we unwittingly view ancient seasonal celebrations through a lens of 19th century Spiritualist Christianity is a big deal to me 1 Adrian Bott @Cavalorn 10h Marking Samhain as 'the time when the veil grows thin' isn't perpetuating Old Ways, it's misrepresenting them 1 6 25 Adrian Bott @Cavalorn 10h So far as I can tell, 'the veil' as a theological concept began as 'the veil between Earth and Heaven' & was co-opted into Spiritualism.. 4 6 Adrian Bott @Cavalorn 10h in which context it served an almost theatric role as the barrier between the desired-for ectoplasmic manifestations & the attendees 4 13 Adrian Bott @Cavalorn 10h Point I'm driving at is that this belief that mortal & spirit worlds were divided by a 'veil' is COMPLETELY ABSENT from such lore as we have 1 7 Adrian Bott @Cavalorn 10h The insistence that the earthly & mortal is in one place & the spiritual & eternal is in another is being IMPOSED on the old traditions Adrian Bott @Cavalorn 3h Nowadays we don't think of spirits' or Gods' realms as physical places, but as planes'. But back then, the Gods lived on Mount Olympus. 1 3 15 Adrian Bott @Cavalorn 3h Heaven was believed to be as physical as Earth. Hell could be reached through openings in rocks. The whole cosmology was different. 4 18 Adrian Bott @Cavalorn 3h Human experience of the world was such that the place where the Gods lived was imagined to be a place like this, only not near here. 3 3 9 Adrian Bott @Cavalorn 3h Of course, now that the Earth is mapped, we needed to imagine otherworlds as 'higher planes'. It was the only place for the unknown to be. 3 Adrian Bott @Cavalorn 3h The idea of superimposition, borrowed from photography, was a convenient analogy for how people thought the spirit world interacted w/ ours. 4 17 Adrian Bott @Cavalorn 3h The less magical the world was believed to be, the more it became necessary to posit a division between us and the realms of wonder. 2 9 21 Adrian Bott @Cavalorn 3h Hence the Spiritualist concept of the Veil, born of parlour room seances & now retrospectively cast as a key element of Samhain. 10 Adrian Bott @Cavalorn 3h But here's the thing. The Sidhe, the 'people of the mounds', were believed to live in the mounds. The tumuli. A *physical* reality. 2 4 16 Adrian Bott @Cavalorn 2h There was no pious division of things into the mundane & the spiritual; the idea of the mundane hadn't been invented yet. 1 5 Adrian Bott @Cavalorn 2h Mundanity is a product of modernity, and the Spirit Realm behind its sodding Veil was only imagined as a necessary contrast (& salve) to it. 8 23 Adrian Bott @Cavalorn 2h In summary, Samhain is not a time when the Veil grows thin, because there never was a Veil in the old tales, and magic was *everywhere*. 4 Adrian Bott @Cavalorn 2h This isn't meant as snark or cynicism. People learn this stuff and pass it on in good faith. Just please interrogate what you inherit, ok'? 2 3 19 Adrian Bott @Cavalorn 1h It's not necessary to buy into the whole 19thC metaphysical hooha of a Veil in order to appreciate the tales of, say, fairie folk riding. 2 8 Adrian Bott @Cavalorn 1h And there's certainly no suggestion that the trolls who descend from their fastnesses on that night do so because the pesky Veil is thin. 2 7 <p><a href="https://caledoniaseries.tumblr.com/post/166973938572/unauthorized-magic-this-thread-is-so-good" class="tumblr_blog">caledoniaseries</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a href="http://unauthorized-magic.tumblr.com/post/166963134224/this-thread-is-so-good" class="tumblr_blog">unauthorized-magic</a>:</p> <blockquote><p>This thread is so good. </p></blockquote> <p>THIS. ^^ </p> <p>As a folklorist, this kind of thing bothers the hell out of me. <i>So much </i>of what people think of as <i>ancient</i> is Victorian era or newer.
