enrique262: Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant Disaster, liquitadors, soviet personnel in charge of the clean-up operation, “the liquidation”, of the disaster, are sent onto the rooftop of the stricken reactor 4 building to clean it up of highly radioactive debris, many coming from the inside of the destroyed reactor itself, as to ensure minimal working conditions could be established, enabling workers to begin construction of the containment building around the stricken reactor, the Sarcophagus.  These men, sent after remote-controlled robots originally tasked with this mission constantly broke down due to damage from the heavy radiation, were nicknamed bio-robots, and worked in such heavily radioactive environment, they couldn’t afford more than a minute of working time each on the rooftop, as more than that would ensure absorption of a fatal dose of radiation. Notice the white flashes at the bottom of the pictures, remnants of the radiation itself present in such alien, hostile environment, which was so strong it reflected itself onto the film inside the cameras, as stated by the journalist behind these pictures, Igor Kostin. The world’s most dangerous job, in the world’s most radioactive place, during the world’s worst nuclear disaster, these men, perhaps unknowingly in many cases, rose to the challenge and ensured the world would never known the horrors they suffered during that fateful year of 1986 in the Ukraine.  : enrique262: Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant Disaster, liquitadors, soviet personnel in charge of the clean-up operation, “the liquidation”, of the disaster, are sent onto the rooftop of the stricken reactor 4 building to clean it up of highly radioactive debris, many coming from the inside of the destroyed reactor itself, as to ensure minimal working conditions could be established, enabling workers to begin construction of the containment building around the stricken reactor, the Sarcophagus.  These men, sent after remote-controlled robots originally tasked with this mission constantly broke down due to damage from the heavy radiation, were nicknamed bio-robots, and worked in such heavily radioactive environment, they couldn’t afford more than a minute of working time each on the rooftop, as more than that would ensure absorption of a fatal dose of radiation.

This isn'tthe scene of a massacre it's just a vet's office where a horse had a nosebleed. Horses breathe heavily through their noses, and their bodies contain a lot of blood, so a human nosebleed that soaks a couple paper towels equates to a horse nosebleec that looks like a crime scene.

fvckthisreality: zacharielaughingalonewithsalad: cellarspider: twinkletwinkleyoulittlefuck: purrsianstuck: During the Bubonic Plague, doctors wore these bird-like masks to avoid becoming sick. They would fill the beaks with spices and rose petals, so they wouldn’t have to smell the rotting bodies. A theory during the Bubonic Plague was that the plague was caused by evil spirits. To scare the spirits away, the masks were intentionally designed to be creepy. Mission fucking accomplished Okay so I love this but it doesn’t cover the half of why the design is awesome and actually borders on making sense. It wasn’t just that they didn’t want to smell the infected and dead, they thought it was crucial to protecting themselves. They had no way of knowing about what actually caused the plague, and so one of the other theories was that the smell of the infected all by itself was evil and could transmit the plague. So not only would they fill their masks with aromatic herbs and flowers, they would also burn fires in public areas, so that the smell of the smoke would “clear the air”. This all related to the miasma theory of contagion, which was one of the major theories out there until the 19th century. And it makes sense, in a way. Plague victims smelled awful, and there’s a general correlation between horrible septic smells and getting horribly sick if you’re around what causes them for too long. You can see now that we’ve got two different theories as to what caused the plague that were worked into the design. That’s because the whole thing was an attempt by the doctors to cover as many bases as they could think of, and we’re still not done. The glass eyepieces. They were either darkened or red, not something you generally want to have to contend with when examining patients. But the plague might be spread by eye contact via the evil eye, so best to ward that off too. The illustration shows a doctor holding a stick. This was an examination tool, that helped the doctors keep some distance between themselves and the infected. They already had gloves on, but the extra level of separation was apparently deemed necessary. You could even take a pulse with it. Or keep people the fuck away from you, which was apparently a documented use. Finally, the robe. It’s not just to look fancy, the cloth was waxed, as were all of the rest of their clothes. What’s one of the properties of wax? Water-based fluids aren’t absorbed by it. This was the closest you could get to a sterile, fully protecting garment back then. Because at least one person along the line was smart enough to think “Gee, I’d really rather not have the stuff coming out of those weeping sores anywhere on my person”. So between all of these there’s a real sense that a lot of real thought was put into making sure the doctors were protected, even if they couldn’t exactly be sure from what. They worked with what information they had. And frankly, it’s a great design given what was available! You limit exposure to aspirated liquids, limit exposure to contaminated liquids already present, you limit contact with the infected. You also don’t give fleas any really good place to hop onto. That’s actually useful. Beyond that, there were contracts the doctors would sign before they even got near a patient. They were to be under quarantine themselves, they wouldn’t treat patients without a custodian monitoring them and helping when something had to be physically contacted, and they would not treat non-plague patients for the duration. There was an actual system in place by the time the plague doctors really became a thing to make sure they didn’t infect anyone either. These guys were the product of the scientific process at work, and the scientific process made a bitchin’ proto-hazmat suit. And containment protocols! reblogging for the sweet history lesson Reblogging because of the History lesson and because the masks, the masks are cool : :Doctor Sohna le vononr Quis non doberctjche egihey an anges tiabwngt artar Eucß nasmeen langen Sc u hurmit deutar figrasmanthian.und georaucl fvckthisreality: zacharielaughingalonewithsalad: cellarspider: twinkletwinkleyoulittlefuck: purrsianstuck: During the Bubonic Plague, doctors wore these bird-like masks to avoid becoming sick.

-Theory- - This will contain minor spoilers for Civil War and Spider-Man: Homecoming - So let's start. So following the events of Captain America: Civil War, Cap (Spoiler Alert) leaves his Shield with Tony Stark after his line "You don't deserve it. My father made that Shield!" So this raises the question. "What weapon will Cap have in Infinity War?" Well most think Tony will just give Cap his Shield back. Which would be stupid honestly, I mean Tony's not gonna forgive a fight like that just in an instant. (At least he shouldn't. Not right away) - "So, here's my brilliant theory." So if you look on my first slide you'll see two pictures of Caps Prototype Shield (Spoiler Alert) that was mentioned in Spider-Man: Homecoming. (Top pic is from Avengers bottom from Iron Man 2) So obviously Tony has been working on a new Shield for Cap ever since they found him in the Ice. But in Spider-Man: Homecoming, Happy said (something like this) "Cap's new prototype Shield." So I think it's safe to assume that Tony finished whatever he made. Now obviously he's not just going to hand it over to Cap after Civil War. (That and he probably has no clue where he is) So here's were Comic Book Accuracy comes in Now the Russos already borrowed this element in Civil War, but I think it's worth a redo. So in the Comics Cap Looses his Shield (Slide 3) and Sharon Carter brings him a photonic energy Shield. Now this Shield can change into an energy staff. Now in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Seasons 3 & 4 Phil Coulson uses an Energy Shield (which he does in the comics as well) So we know the technology exists. Now add a little Tony Stark design to it. "Bing Bang Boom." (I like how I keep using CA: TFA Quotes) So, Tony designs Cap this Shield bc he's Tony. He likes to make stuff. (Iron Man 3) Sharon Carter steals this new tech brings it to Steve. Also one piece of Evidence I found to support this is in the Leaked Avengers: Infinity War trailer, Cap is Catching an energy staff. Now whether this is just an attackers weapon, or his New Shield it's unclear. But he is holding an energy staff. - Comment your thoughts on this theory below.
