Alive, Amazon, and Apparently: someone: if you keep listening to your music so loudly, you'i1 be deaf by the time you're 20 me: WHAT jumpingjacktrash: cromulentenough: quinnbee-s: portmanteau-bot: boogiewoogiebuglegal: theprinceofprinces: 1337banna: gottalovesteak: 1337banna: gottalovesteak: magic-in-a-bottle: teuthidactyl: peaceheather: beanmom: ask-gallows-callibrator: demon-sweets: No. Just no. Ok? So I used to make this joke all the time. Now I have chronic tinnitus. For those of you who don’t know what that is, it’s nerve damage in your ears which often comes as a result of being constantly exposed to very loud noise for a long period of time. The nerve damage results in a constant ringing/buzzing in your ears. So far there’s no cure. The severity of it varies, and I’m lucky to have a mild case, which I can barely hear during the day and is easy to block out at night. That said, loads of people with tinnitus aren’t so lucky. Severe tinnitus can’t be blocked out. Those who suffer from it also suffer from severe loss of sleep, depression, anxiety…. the list goes on. Tinnitus also comes with a degree of hearing loss in most cases, making it even harder to ignore. In fact, some people with severe tinnitus kill themselves just to make the ringing stop. Tinnitus can be so severe that it drives a person to suicide. Chronic tinnitus used to mostly be prevalent in older people who worked for years with loud machinery etc, but all of a sudden it’s becoming more common in our generation. Why? Because of people, like me, who listened to their music too goddamn loudly through their headphones. Deaf by the time you’re 20? Please. That’s the least of your worries. Please reblog. This post reminded me to move my music further away and turn it down. Someone else may need to be more cautious of their shit too. Chronic mild tinnitus here, too, due to too many metal concerts in my youth.  Turn your headphones down a little.  Wear earplugs at concerts.  Protect your ears. Your eyes have an iris that can shrink down, and eyelids that can squint shut, to protect them from light that is too bright. Your ears have NOTHING to block out sounds that are too loud. It’s up to you. Tinnitus sufferer from drumline in high school checking in. These days I wear earplugs at concerts, rehearsals, clubs, and even movies sometimes. Get yourself a set that look like these ones: Etymotics Research was one of the first companies I’m aware of to widely market with this sort of ear plug, and they’re great, because they reduce noise fairly evenly across the spectrum, and so you hear everything accurately, just quieter.  While they’re certainly more expensive than the foam earplugs that you see everywhere, they also are washable and last for months and months, and sound great, if not better than without  for live music.  Please protect your ears.  There is no way to recover lost hearing. Apparently I had this. I just thought silence was a ringing sound you also might have even been “born” with this. a lot of people with sensory issues (especially autistic or ADD/ADHD people) experience this when it’s silent around them but havent actually hurt their ears with music at all. so its also a sensory processing thing and you can be “born” with it (aka develop with it in childhood) like i have Wait I thought that ringing was normal?? I hear ringing when its dead silent are you seriously saying my ADHD causes this???? I thought everyone had that???!!??! normal people dont have that ringing noise. while it’s minor in cases of sensory development issues from developmental disorders, it can be severe if a person with a developmental disorder listens to loud music. i know that sometimes during a sensory overload from autism, the ringing will become terribly loud Oh lord ok. Be careful with loud noises. Gotcha. I didnt realize not everyone hears that ringing. I thought it was normal so I never asked if anyone else heard it too. Thanks for the warning about loud music! Ive always tried to avoid going to concerts because of the ringing but I thought it was a thing everyone put up with and that I was being a wimp. Im glad I have an explanation! That’s why the ringing gets louder? SIGNAL BOOST signal + boost = signoost.Beep-boop. Portmanteau^bot^1If I sound pleased about this, it’s only because my programmers made this my default tone of voice! I’m actually quite depressed! | PayPal | Patreon when is was like 5 i thought it was like, a normal constant sound that came with being alive on a populous planet/in the universe, kinda like gravity or light or smthn, until I figured out that other people can actually hear silence When people talked about the sound of silence I thought that’s what they meant. But yeah I’ve had it for as long as I can remember. i’m autistic and i used to play in a punk band and go to a lot of rock shows in the 90′s. the ringing is always there. it always will be. could drive me crazy if i let it, but i’m a practical type, so i just deal. but you don’t want this if you don’t have to have it. turn your shit down, y’all.
Animals, Family, and Life: onyourleftbooob jessi dietrich @jessi_dietrich Asked my vet what the hardest part was about his job &he said when he has to put an animal down 90% of owners don't actually want to be in the room when he injects them so the animal's last moments are usually them frantically looking around for their owners &tbh that broke me onyourleftbooob l found more on this: Hillcrest Veterinary Hospital & 24hr Emergency Service August 12 at 3:01 PM This was written by a vet and is so true. When you are a pet owner it is inevitable, the majority of the time, that your pet will die before you do. So if and when you have to take your pet to the vet's office for a humane pain-free ending I want you all to know something. You have been the center of their world for THEIR ENTIRE LIVES!!!! They may just be a part of yours but all they know is you as their family. It is a crappy decision/day/time/event every time, there is no argument against that and it is devastating for us as humans to lose them. But please I beg you DO NOT LEAVE THEM. Do not make them transition from life to death in a room of strangers in a place they don't like. The thing you people need to know that most of you don't is that THEY SEARCH FOR YOU WHEN YOU LEAVE THEM BEHIND!!!! They search every face in the room for their loved person. They don't understand why you left them when they are sick, scared, old or dying from cancer and they need your comfort. Don't be a coward because you think it is just too hard for YOU, imagine what they feel as you leave them in their most vulnerable time and people like me are left to try our best every time to comfort them, make them less scared and try to explain why you just couldn't stay. From a tired broken-hearted vet Source: onyourleftbooob This makes my heart ache. I never considered this being the reality in most cases.

This makes my heart ache. I never considered this being the reality in most cases.

Community, Computers, and Fire: ooo Verizon LTE 4:27 PM 22 mins Just watched a Nazi get knocked the fuck out pointlesslypointing: alyss-spazz-penedo: pointlesslypointing: cheappussyweaves: alyss-spazz-penedo: cheappussyweaves: alyss-spazz-penedo: decapitatingly: cornelius-s23: 3 Ayyy. This just made my morning..! The fuck is wrong with you people??? Some guy gets punched out and people are just, ‘bravo, bravo, hit him again!’ Seriously??? Yes, maybe it it was provoked, but maybe it wasn’t–and we know literally nothing about the guy besides he fact that he’s wearing a Nazi symbol and he’s white. I do not support Nazis, but they’re fucking human too, and NOTHING JUSTIFIES TREATING HIM LIKE THIS. If the guy was punched because he was talking shit, then that’s between him and the people who punched him. It’s done, hopefully he’s learned a lesson about watching his mouth, EVERYBODY ELSE FUCK OFF IT’S NONE OF OUR BUSINESS WHAT THIS ONE ASSHOLE BELIEVES. If he was jumped because he was wearing that symbol and walking through an area that’s politically hostile towards Nazis, WE JUST WATCHED SOME GUY GET BEAT UP FOR HIS FUCKING RELIGIOUS BELIEFS. Yes, Nazis believe they’re inherently better than everyone else, and /I/ believe that’s an utter load of crock, but superiority isn’t illegal and there’s nothing to prove that this guy has actually hurt anyone or done anything wrong besides support a group of condescending arses. Does innocent until proven guilty just not apply to parts of the population we have a grudge against? What the hell gives anyone looking at this post the right to look down on this guy and assume he deserves what he got???? End your life. And believing I should die because I believe something you don’t agree with makes you better than them, doesn’t it? If you’ve got something personal against the group, okay, fine. I don’t pretend to understand where you’re coming from. But take it out on someone who you know deserves it. End your life. Nazis already killed millions of people in the name of their cause. If they had their way, I would be dead. Him wearing that insignia is a threat of violence against me, people like me, and people from other groups. When someone makes threats, they deserve to get much worse than punched. He got off lightly. Maybe. And maybe that’s what the people doing the punching thought, and that’s why I’m not trying to judge them for it–I’m sure they had their reasons. Put a threat in front of someone’s face, and self-defense is a perfectly justifiable excuse for violence.But everyone else, lashing out at a threat that isn’t right in front of their faces? You’re all sitting behind your phones and computers too, and saying that this guy you don’t even know should be hurt and killed. What do you say to Christians–should the LGBTQ community be rising up and burning down churches? Should women everywhere be assaulting politicians in the street for refusing them their right to abortion, which is a direct threat to their lives and livelihoods?That shit is ILLEGAL. I don’t know the circumstances of the guys in the clip, but everyone out there saying “rah, rah, let’s go lynch some white people!”? No. Spit at the Nazi you see on the streets, call the cops on him, sure. Maybe get him some kind of psychiatric help. Defend yourself if the asshole comes up to you.But specifically hunting someone down who has done nothing to you personally, and take what they’re wearing as provokation enough for violence? No. That helps no one, and solves nothing. No, but if those churches are actively advocating for violence against them, and not paying their fair share of taxes (as most don’t); then allies should be. That way, LGBTQIA+ people dont get the blame for it. Same for the reproductive rights thing.While I do get what you’re saying, claiming something as moral or amoral judging by the law isn’t the smartest thing to do. After all, it’s legal for employers to fire you based on your sexuality; and it’s illegal for gay people to donate blood. So, legalistic morality isn’t the most valid excuse for reactionism.I don’t care if I dont know him. If someone is pointing a gun at an innocent person, I’m going to cheer for the person who knocks it out of their hands and beats them with it. Calling the cops on a neonazi isn’t likely a great idea, considering the large number of cops who at best use excessive force against minorities, and at worst actively support white supremacy.Specifically targeting Nazis does the exact opposite of what you’re claiming it does. It makes them afraid, it keeps them from spreading their propaganda in public, and as such helps the people who would be killed if they were to gain the upper hand. If someone loves being a nazi so much that they’re willing to go out in public wearing paraphernalia, spewing propaganda, and using nazi salutes and slogans; they are beyond “psychiatric help”. If they dont respect you as a person, they won’t respect the hand you’re extending towards them.You don’t let a rabid dog walk the streets, regardless of whether or not you’ve seen it bite anyone.
Asian, Children, and Life: Dr. Farrah Gray Asian Interviewer: "Can you address their concems Mr.Chang? | MR CHANG: "The concerns of Black people? Yes l can. The fact is, that we all ive under a system of White Supremacy. We Asian people look back at our long history of confict with the European. We observe their strategies and develop our own, in response and in kind. There is no need for loud mass movements on our part, because we intend to overtake them in time, through action and personal sacrifice Asian INTERVIEWER: And the Black man? MR CHANG: "He does not count into our situation. He is simply here. We do not hate the Black man. We just love the Asian man most. Real love-not cliche. We want to see Asian man happy, so we employ him. We eat together. We spend time with each other. We want his kids to be educated, so we invest in our own schools that offer our children the technical abilities to change the world's power structure in our favor. We want to see the Asian man safe, so we purchase and organize our own communities. We want him to remain Asian, so we reduce the outside nfluence of others ideologies and cultures. While he fought to sniff behind the White man, the Black man has had the opportunity and every right in the world to do the same, but he chooses to indict people like me for not hiring him over my own brothers. For me to do this would be foolish and that would not be Asian love In contrast, the Black man will fight for the right to be up under everyone else other than other Black people who he should feel the most love for. If our indifference to their situation make us racist, then what would you call the Black lilduval Friendly reminder: nobody is holding black people back but BLACK PEOPLE!

Frank briefly acknowledged the president and greeted him but continued his work.</p> <p>“Future of the country right there. We’re lucky. That’s the real future of the country,” the president said. “Maybe he’ll be president.”</p> <p>Mr. Trump gave Giaccio several high-fives and pats on the back as he continued cutting. He rooted him on and perused his line work on the tall, green fescue lawn. </p> <p>“Have you done this before?” the president joked as he followed Giaccio. </p> <p>During a brief mowing pause, the president asked him what he wanted to be when he grew up. </p> <p>“This is Frank. He is going to be very famous,” Mr. Trump said. “He is going to be a Navy Seal one day. He’s going to do great things for our country.” </p> <p>A U.S. Park Service employee and Giaccio’s father supervised his work, and afterward, Mr. Trump invited them in for a behind-the-scenes tour of the Oval Office and to snap pictures commemorating the occasion.</p> <p>White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders had talked about Giaccio’s letter during a late-July press conference. Sanders applauded Giaccio’s knack for combining his landscaping skills with business savvy, and she promised that the president would allow him into the White House one day. Giaccio wrote the letter to the president when he was 10 years old, but has since had a birthday. </p> <blockquote><p><b>His letter read: “Dear Mr. President, It would be my honor to mow the White House lawn for some weekend for you. Even though I’m only 10, I’d like to show the nation what young people like me are ready for. I admire your business background and have started my own business. I’ve been mowing my neighbor’s lawn for some time. Please see the attached flyer. Here’s a list of what I have, and you’re free to pick whatever you want: power mower, push mower, and weed wacker. I can bring extra fuel for the power mower and charge batteries for the weed wacker. I will do this at no charge. Sincerely, Frank.” <br/></b></p></blockquote> <p><b> </b>Giaccio concluded his freelance landscaping gig at the White House with a stop at the press briefing room. There, he posed for photographs and thanked the president and Sanders for inviting him. Afterward, Giaccio called it “probably the biggest day” of his entire life and promised he won’t charge his neighbors more just because he can now add “White House lawn cutter” to his resume.”<b><br/></b></p> <p style=""><b><a href="https://www.cbsnews.com/news/11-year-old-boy-mows-lawn-at-white-house-rose-garden-with-trump/">https://www.cbsnews.com/news/11-year-old-boy-mows-lawn-at-white-house-rose-garden-with-trump/</a><br/></b></p> <p style=""><b><br/></b></p> <p>Pure<b><br/></b></p> </blockquote> <p>this is fucking adorable holy shit</p> </blockquote> <p>Kid is gonna be big in the lawn mowing community </p> </blockquote> <p>Gonna be YUGE</p> </blockquote> <p>I’m on mobile so I need someone to add that Snoop Dogg this is the cutest shit I’ve ever seen meme</p> </blockquote> <p>Thats no excuse now</p></blockquote> <p>It is for me because I still don&rsquo;t have the mother trucking update that lets you post pictures.</p>
