England, Fake, and Gif: So when Rowling tweeted this back at him, most people assumed she was messing around Luke @lukekocura.4 Sep 2015 Said the millionaire on her gold iphone in her mansion J.K.

Ready to get owned? 6:42 PM-4 Sep 2015 40,534 Retweets 59,056 Likes 0.9匍80e0悉@ Before responding, Rowling had researched the man behind the troll, Luke Kocura, and found out he was struggling to make mortgage payments on his modest home in Sheffield, England. Unless he turned things around within two years, he was at risk of foreclosure Rowling then closely monitored his situation, which, sure enough, only got worse. So two years later, she pounced, assuming Kocura's mortgage, repossessing the house from the bank, and now she owns it. To celebrate the long-game owning, she tweeted this at him: J.K. Rowling @jk_rowling Follow @Lukekocura I was unduly harsh before. The place isn't a shack. It's more of a hut.

4chan, America, and Anime: Researchers Studied 160 Milliorn Memes and Found Most of Them Come From Two Websites A study of hundreds of millions of images from Reddit, 4chan, Gab, and Twitter reveals how memes spread. Samantha Cole Jun 12 2018,10:27am 产ブ Researchers at University College London developed a new way to measure how memes are made and spread. What they found won't surprise anyone who's peered into the darker parts of the internet in the last few years: The most toxic, yet most effectively spread, memes are first shared on two places, the subreddit r/the_donald and 4chan's "politically incorrect" forum, called /pol/ Smug Frog Meme Image Cluster 1 Cluster N Figure 1: An example of a meme (Smug Frog) that provides an intu- ition of what an image, a cluster, and a meme is.

I agree. If everyone can remember something this simple, we could save some folks.<br/><br/>STROKE IDENTIFICATION:<br/>During a party, a friend stumbled and took a little fall - she assured everyone that she was fine and just tripped over a brick because of her new shoes. (they offered to call ambulance)<br/><br/>They got her cleaned up and got her a new plate of food - while she appeared a bit shaken up, Ingrid went about enjoying herself the rest of the evening. Ingrid’s husband called later telling everyone that his wife had been taken to the hospital - (at 6:00pm , Ingrid passed away.)<br/>She had suffered a stroke at the party . Had they known how to identify the signs of a stroke, perhaps Ingrid would be with us today.<br/><br/>Some don’t die. They end up in a helpless, hopeless condition instead. It only takes a minute to read this…<br/><br/>STROKE IDENTIFICATION:<br/><br/>A neurologist says that if he can get to a stroke victim within 3 hours he can totally reverse the effects of a stroke…totally. He said the trick was getting a stroke recognized, diagnosed, and then getting the patient medically cared for within 3 hours, which is tough.<br/><br/>RECOGNIZING A STROKE<br/><br/>Remember the ‘3’ steps, STR . Read and Learn!<br/>Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to identify. Unfortunately, the lack of awareness spells disaster.<br/>The stroke victim may suffer severe brain damage when people nearby fail to recognize the symptoms of a stroke.<br/>Now doctors say a bystander can recognize a stroke by asking three simple questions :<br/><br/>S * Ask the individual to SMILE ..<br/>T * = TALK. Ask the person to SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE (Coherently) (eg ‘It is sunny out today’).<br/>R * Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS .<br/><br/>If he or she has trouble with ANY ONE of these tasks, call the ambulance and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher.<br/><br/>NOTE : Another ‘sign’ of a stroke is<br/>1. Ask the person to ‘stick’ out their tongue.<br/>2. If the tongue is ‘crooked’, if it goes to one side or the other that is also an indication of a stroke.<br/><br/>A prominent cardiologist says if everyone who gets this e-mail sends it to 10 people; you can bet that at least one life will be saved.<br/><br/>And it could be your own.</p> <blockquote> <blockquote> <blockquote> <blockquote> <blockquote> <blockquote> <p>First reblog post that actually saves a life.</p> </blockquote> <p>This is a life-saving post.</p> </blockquote> <p><i>the more you know</i></p> </blockquote> <p>yeah don’t think that this can’t happen to you or someone you know if they’re young. my cousin’s wife is 33 and she had a stroke last year</p> </blockquote> <p>I’ve had a stroke.

Truganini was the last full-blooded Palawa, but that doesn’t mean they are “extinct” as those reductive infographics would have you believe. Doesn’t matter how much milk you put in a cup of coffee, it’s still a cup of coffee, and just because Tasmanian aboriginals today are mixed race doesn’t mean they’re not still aboriginal with a living culture and a strong connection to their ancestors and their history. </p> <p>On Bruny Island, Truganini’s birthplace, which the Nuenone people called Lunnawanna-Alonnah, there is a thriving cultural centre called Weetapoona. The government restored land to Tasmanian aboriginals a few years back. There they are doing some fantastic work to revive their customs, work with archaeologists, as well as achieve reconciliation. </p> <p>Colonists certainly committed incomprehensible atrocities. Kidnapping, rape, murder, massacre, theft of land, even theft of aboriginal bodies. Not content with taking their lives and exiling them from country, they took bodies as trophies and sent them across the sea, away from land and ancestors. As a way of excusing their atrocities, perhaps, colonisers spread the idea that Tasmanians were the most backward and least evolved of all human beings, making them valuable “specimens.” It was Truganini’s greatest fear that she would be made a souvenir after she died, and unfortunately her fears came true. It took many, many decades before her body was returned to country. I could go on and on, but my point is that it is so important that we don’t spread this idea of extinction and acknowledge them instead as a living culture who must be allowed to define themselves, their past and their future. Spreading nonsense and reductive half-truths like the one above only makes it worse. </p> </blockquote> <p>OP is either an idiot who can’t do research or a liar.</p></blockquote>
