🐝: weavemama WHIO-TV @whiotv Do you know what to do if you're bitten by a tarantula hawk wasp? on.whio.com/2tjwp8X 7/3/17, 3:13 PM BY A WHAT artistil THATS ALL THE BIG SCARIES IN ONE BUG TFFF JU 1petulantkitten Give it a dime, apparently. 1petulantkitten Had to go research this thing, and the answer to what to do if it stings you is scream. from Wikipedia- "One researcher described the pain as ".. immediate, excruciating, unrelenting pain that simply shuts down one's ability to do anything, except scream. Mental discipline simply does not work in these situations. In terms of scale, the wasp's sting is rated near the top of the Schmidt sting pain index, second only to that of the bullet ant, and is described by Schmidt as "blinding, fierce [and] shockingly electric"." momma-crow Soooo0o..dissociate to escape or? thesallowbeldam It's laying eggs in you. prokopetz Let's back up a second and fully appreciate that description. The Schmidt sting pain index, a widely used classification system for the bites and stings of ants, bees and wasps, is literally the personal ranking system of a guy named Justin Schmidt, who goes around letting bugs sting him for science. Like, that's this Thing as a scientist. In one entry, he describes the sting of the common bee as "almost pleasant, [like] a lover just bit your earlobe a little too hard." In another, the sting of the yellowjacket is described as "hot and smoky, almost irreverent. Imagine W. C. Fields extinguishing a cigar on your tongue.“ So when the Schmidt sting pain index characterises the sting of the tarantula hawk as "blinding, fierce [and] shockingly electric", well, now you know what your standard for comparison is! moonsofavalon this is fascinating but when do we kinkshame Justin Schmidt surprisebitch Justin Schmidt is the epitome of masochism Source: weavemama 296,127 notes 🐝

solacekames: 8:08 AM PDT 8/16/2019 by Kareem Abdul-JabbarThe NBA great and Hollywood Reporter columnist, a friend of the late martial arts star, believes the filmmaker was sloppy, somewhat racist and shirked his responsibility to basic truth in ‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.’Remember that time Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. kidney-punched a waiter for serving soggy croutons in his tomato soup? How about the time the Dalai Lama got wasted and spray-painted “Karma Is a Beach” on the Tibetan ambassador’s limo? Probably not, since they never happened. But they could happen if a filmmaker decides to write those scenes into his or her movie. And, even though we know the movie is fiction, those scenes will live on in our shared cultural conscience as impressions of those real people, thereby corrupting our memory of them built on their real-life actions.That’s why filmmakers have a responsibility when playing with people’s perceptions of admired historic people to maintain a basic truth about the content of their character. Quentin Tarantino’s portrayal of Bruce Lee in Once Upon a Time in Hollywood does not live up to this standard. Of course, Tarantino has the artistic right to portray Bruce any way he wants. But to do so in such a sloppy and somewhat racist way is a failure both as an artist and as a human being.This controversy has left me torn. Tarantino is one of my favorite filmmakers because he is so bold, uncompromising and unpredictable. There’s a giddy energy in his movies of someone who loves movies and wants you to love them, too. I attend each Tarantino film as if it were an event, knowing that his distillation of the ’60s and ’70s action movies will be much more entertaining than a simple homage. That’s what makes the Bruce Lee scenes so disappointing, not so much on a factual basis, but as a lapse of cultural awareness.Bruce Lee was my friend and teacher. That doesn’t give him a free pass for how he’s portrayed in movies. But it does give me some insight into the man. I first met Bruce when I was a student at UCLA looking to continue my martial arts studies, which I started in New York City. We quickly developed a friendship as well as a student-teacher relationship. He taught me the discipline and spirituality of martial arts, which was greatly responsible for me being able to play competitively in the NBA for 20 years with very few injuries.During our years of friendship, he spoke passionately about how frustrated he was with the stereotypical representation of Asians in film and TV. The only roles were for inscrutable villains or bowing servants. In Have Gun - Will Travel, Paladin’s faithful Chinese servant goes by the insulting name of “Hey Boy” (Kam Tong). He was replaced in season four by a female character referred to as “Hey Girl” (Lisa Lu). Asian men were portrayed as sexless accessories to a scene, while the women were subservient. This was how African-American men and women were generally portrayed until the advent of Sidney Poitier and blaxploitation films. Bruce was dedicated to changing the dismissive image of Asians through his acting, writing and promotion of Jeet Kune Do, his interpretation of martial arts.That’s why it disturbs me that Tarantino chose to portray Bruce in such a one-dimensional way. The John Wayne machismo attitude of Cliff (Brad Pitt), an aging stuntman who defeats the arrogant, uppity Chinese guy harks back to the very stereotypes Bruce was trying to dismantle. Of course the blond, white beefcake American can beat your fancy Asian chopsocky dude because that foreign crap doesn’t fly here.I might even go along with the skewered version of Bruce if that wasn’t the only significant scene with him, if we’d also seen a glimpse of his other traits, of his struggle to be taken seriously in Hollywood. Alas, he was just another Hey Boy prop to the scene. The scene is complicated by being presented as a flashback, but in a way that could suggest the stuntman’s memory is cartoonishly biased in his favor. Equally disturbing is the unresolved shadow that Cliff may have killed his wife with a spear gun because she nagged him. Classic Cliff. Is Cliff more heroic because he also doesn’t put up with outspoken women?I was in public with Bruce several times when some random jerk would loudly challenge Bruce to a fight. He always politely declined and moved on. First rule of Bruce’s fight club was don’t fight — unless there is no other option. He felt no need to prove himself. He knew who he was and that the real fight wasn’t on the mat, it was on the screen in creating opportunities for Asians to be seen as more than grinning stereotypes.

Just throw a playstation at your kid.: See this?. This is what we need less of. People who mistake discipline for abuse. If a child does something wrong. They should get a smack. Its quick, easy, and they'll immediately know not to do it ever again. This kid was ruining his life by not studying and getting bad grades all because he wanted to play some fortnite. I would have thrown the PlayStation at the child if he told me he wanted to waste his life rather than study like he was supposed to. He made the kid destroy what was distracting him from his schoolwork. So the kid would learn to prioritise studying over a useless game that could be broken in a few seconds. My niece gets the same thing, she is a little older than one but already knows whats right and wrong because she was disciplined. Starts grabbing someones phone? You can just say no and she will put it right back and leave it because she knows the first time she did it and didnt put the phone down she got a smack. Starts pulling cords? We can say no and she will walk away because she knows when someone says no to her she should stop what she is doing. Accidentally hurts herself slightly? She wont cry and make a big deal over nothing because she knows we dont baby her around and she will just suck it up and keep playing. Discipline is essential for parenting, it is NOT abuse to slap your child if they do something wrong. If you disagree. Stop trying to be a parent. You're just raising a generation of failures Reply - 20h Like Just throw a playstation at your kid.

Epic gamer moment: To parents and/or adults on r/teenagers. Rant I just have to get this off my chest, as I wanted to post this for months. • When your kid shows you a meme, that's NOT and invitation for you to look through their phone. • DON'T refuse your kid's help to clean, then complain saying "You never help me with anything". If you don't want their help, they hear that you don't want help and are trying to respect you. • Don't respond to a teenager's problems with "I was a teenager, too.". Yeah, you were, but things aren't the same as they were in your days. • The Ok Sign Is Not Offensive Don't Punish Your kid for • If a kid complains about something, "It's that phone" is VERY UNLIKELY to be the reason • If your kid gets bad grades, it's probably not a good idea to punish them by taking away their electronics. It's better to either find out what's happening and THEN decide whether to discipline or not. If they're getting bad grades because they can't understand what they're learning, HELP THEM. If they're getting bad grades because they're cheating and refusing to work, THEN you can punish them! For pete's sake, this should be common knowledge! I shouldn't even have to put this on the list! • Video games are NOT causing violence. Heck, Frozen 2 once ended with teenagers getting into a machete brawl. SOMETHING DIRECTED AT KIDS WAS So it MORE LIKELY TO CAUSE VIOLENCE THAN MODERN ENTERTAINMENT. • I can't even stress this one enough. If you're pregnant and don't want to keep the baby, DO NOT ABANDON YOUR CHILD AFTER IT IS BORN OR ANY LATER THAN THAT! I don't know how many people do this, but it sickens me that some people may actually do it. I shouldn't have to list this, and it breaks my heart that some people will give birth to a child only to leave it in a random area while they do whatever. Foster care and adoption exist for a reason. • Repeat after me: Multiplayer video games cannot be paused, and I can't punish the teenager for not being able to control that. • ***"***I carried you for 9 months", "I'm older than you", and "You are being disrespectful" ARE NOT VALID EXCUSES IN AN ARGUMENT! AGE DOESN'T MATTER IN AN ARGUMENT, WINNING A CONFLICT IS NOT DISRESPECT, AND YOU CHOSETO HAVE A CHILD! • Don't ever tell your child "If you tell the truth, I won't get mad" (or something like that) if you don't mean it. All you're ever doing is decaying their trust with you. Thanks for coming to my TED Talk, have a good day. I like this one Epic gamer moment

Mom comes up with a totally healthy way to discipline her children: December 18 at 8:42 PM 9 When my kids get grounded.. its a "legal" process. First, they're "Arrested and booked" (includes a mugshot, an orange T shirt and fingerprints) then, they're granted a "Bond", which if they own something of value such as a cellular device or etc they can bond themselves out using that item otherwise they'll need a sibling to do so for them. After bonding out they're given a "Court date" usually a month out and they're returned their item of value while they await court. THAT ITEM WILL BE WHAT THEY'RE GROUNDED FROM AT THEIR SENTENCING. If a sibling has offered up their item, then the sibling loses it.. Only certain items are eligible to be used for a bond such as phones, favorite hoodies, game systems, or guitars. I've recently decided to begin posting it on the "News" aka social media, Once "court comes" they're given "time served" on up to "life".. depending on their behavior while "out on bond" and whatever the sentence would be in real life for a comparable charge. (i google it) For example, if the sentence would be 1 to 3 years, they will be given 1 to 3 months. If the CRIMINAL 12/17/2019 sentence is 1 to 3 months they will get 1 to 3 weeks and so on. Unless their lawyer is able to get the charge thrown out. At bonding, I also issue a "community service" they can do, and it should be completed by their court date since it "looks better to the judge". Community service only counts if theyre wearing the orange trustee shirt. i let them chose 24 favors or 24 hours. I also keep record of everything of decemt caliber that they've said or done mean or good while out on bond and "bring that to court" At court, I dress the part and I make them do the whole shabang. they take the oath and we preside. siblings are the jury if needed, usually if they've been good and completed the community service AND they've pleaded guilty then their "lawyer" can usually get the charges thrown out. Trust me guys.. it's great. I get great joy out of this lol... infact, my trustee is making brownies for me as we speak... some folks beat their kids others take their phones, others banish their kids to their rooms for weeks.
