so what the hell is this post about OP?
Blackheads are accumulations of horn and tallow. The black dots are because of the pigment of the skin and is not filth. They are annoying but are also easily prevented and removed. We are going to mingle-mangle some pretty basic ingredients almost everybody has at home. You are going to need the following things: Something like a tray A spoon Toothpaste (the brand doesn’t matter) Salt
So how do we remove them OP?
Put some salt and Toothpaste in the tray and start the mixing. Don’t make too much though, just enough to cover the spots you want to scrub with it, because Toothpaste can be a bitch to clean out of your tray. Now we have our mixture you can start aplying it on the blackheads. Leave it on for about 5 minutes, and yes the stingy feeling is normal.
After feeling like a retard for having toothpaste on your face for 5 minutes, start massaging it in a circular motion. Clean your face with warm water, and after that rinse it with cold water to reduce your pores size. Your nose might look a little red now, but after 10 minutes or so the result is a nose (almost) free of blackheads. if it doesn’t work the first time, it’s cheap and harmless so trying it again is always an option, just give your skin some time to recover. I hope this helps you :)

Once a group of 50 people was attending a seminar. Suddenly the speaker stopped and decided to do a group activity. He started giving each one a balloon. Each one was asked to write his/her name on it using a marker pen. Then all the balloons were collected and put in another room. Now these delegates were let in that room and asked to find the balloon which had their name written, within 5 minutes. Everyone was frantically searching for their name, colliding with each other, pushing around others and there was utter chaos. At the end of 5 minutes no one could find their own balloon. Now each one was asked to randomly collect a balloon and give it to the person whose name was written on it. Within minutes everyone had their own balloon. The speaker began— exactly this is happening in our lives. Everyone is frantically looking for happiness all around, not knowing where it is. Our happiness lies in the happiness of other people. Give them their happiness; you will get your own happiness. And this is the purpose of human life.

So my dr gave me contacts that adjust and shift colors so that a Color blind person like myself can see colors to some extent as I am red green deficient. I can’t stop smiling or crying and yea that’s my natural eye color. I guess it’s not like a deaf person getting to hear for the first time but it’s new for me and I am very excited about it. This is a PSA to other colorblind folk there is something that can sorta help. Imgur I cried when I could see “red” this has been a huge deal for me and I know selfies are down voted to hell but fuck it all I can see colors and that’s something with being so happy about. http://www.color-blindness.com/2008/03/29/improving-color-vision-with-lenses-for-the-colorblind/ http://www.colormax.org/corrective-lenses.htm http://wearecolorblind.com/article/oxy-iso-glasses-review/ http://www.colour-blindness.com/solutions/cure/ http://www.colour-blindness.com/other-eye-illnesses/cures/glasses-contacts/

Here is the little chick on the first day. My brother had been out jogging, and found it on the sidewalk. It was actually still attached to part of its shell and some dried membranes. Clearly freshly hatched, we were unable to locate the nest in the group of trees above us. **NOTE** if you find a bird this young, it is best to try to locate the nest and put it back in. There is a myth that you can’t touch a baby bird, because the parents will reject it due to the smell of humans.
Since we were unable to locate the nest and have experience with this kind of thing, we (myself and my mother, who I enlisted to help with this endevour) decided to try and raise the little thing. Aren’t baby birds cute in an ugly kind of way? We kept the chick in a homemade incubator, carefully controlling the humidity and temperature. We decided she was a she (though we were never able to find out if it was male or female), and called her “Dumpling.” All baby birds look very similar, so we had no way to really know what kind of bird this was. We’d have to wait and see how she grew, and what her feathers looked like.
Baby birds eat a lot! We fed this chick primarily with crickets, mealworms, waxworms, caught insects, and a commercially available liquid formula for chicks. We fed the chick every 30 minutes for 14 hours/day, simulating what she would get in the wild. Just imagine what that means! This was just one chick, and most songbird broods will have anywhere from 2 – 5 chicks. The amount of insects songbird parents need to catch to feed their chicks (and themselves) is a bit staggering when you think about it. Since the parents don’t feed their chicks overnight, we didn’t either. This is opposed to many mammalian babies that need to be fed regularly around the clock.
You can see here the amazing development of the wing feathers in just a few days’ time. Also, she had a hilarious wispy mohawk of down feathers that got even more ridiculous when she got a little older. She would start squawking to be fed every 30-45 minutes. An interesting note: instincts are fascinating with these animals. Even with the poor coordination and closed eyes, this chick knew enough to back up to the edge of the nest we made for her and poop over the side, so as to not dirty the nest.
By day 5, Dumpling was able to sit more “sternal” (on her chest with the legs tucked under her body) with more stability. Look at the changes in the feathers in just another 24 hours! She is actually starting to look like a bird! Her eyes were starting to open just a little bit by this time, as well.
Here is a nice shot of the amazing continued development of her wing feathers. You can see them encased in a cornified sheath. Once the feather gets to its final size, this sheath disintegrates and the feather is allowed to spread open.
Overnight, all of the feather sheaths fell away and -tada!- we have a bird! You can see here as well that she has a bent lateral toe on her left leg. Not much to be done about that in a bird this small, and it really didn’t slow her down at all.
“FEED ME!!” At this point, she was eating 3 large crickets +/- waxworms at every feeding. I’ll attempt to make a gif later from some video I have of her scarfing them down.
By this time, we were able to stop using the incubator. Since her body was covered in feathers, she was able to regulate her body heat on her own. The tufts of chick fluff and the eternally grumpy expression that baby birds have was hilarious.
We moved her into more of a conventional cage, and gave her more materials to explore. She was really happy, despite her expression.
She was able to officially perch for the first time! Definitely a big step in the right direction. She doesn’t have much of a tail yet, so her balance isn’t great, but she had a really strong grip and could hold herself up there very well, bad toe and all.
She was a very sweet little bird, and enjoyed perching on our hands, early on. You can see some sprouting millet seeds in the background, which we added to her diet to continue to increase the variety of food she was exposed to. By this point, we actually didn’t have to feed her as often. We would hand feed her every 1-2 hours, and place worms in the cage for her to forage for in between times.
Almost 2 weeks from hatching, and she is now perching very well! You can see that her strength and balance has improved even compared to Day 11. Her legs are more upright, showing a better perching posture. This “hocks up” posture is very characteristic of 14-day old songbird chicks, so she is right on schedule.
She is starting to look more mature. That hilarious baby down is disappearing. Now that she is over 2 weeks old, I’ll start skipping days.
Here she is in a larger cage that she graduated to. We put in freshly cut branches so she can have a variety of perching options, and can explore the leaves and twigs like she would in the wild. By this point, she is hopping and flying around the cage like a professional. **NOTE** Any of you with pet birds, it is very important to have a variety of perches. The best ones are branches you cut yourself from non-toxic trees. It’s great, healthy enrichment for your pets!
We started placing her cage out on the deck to get her exposed to the wind, the sun and other birds.
This is one of my favorite pictures of her, showing her wonderfully patterned feathers. By this point, we decided she was likely a White Crowned Sparrow. It is a species of bird that is common around here, but you don’t see them often because they don’t come to bird feeders regularly. They are a migratory species, traveling south for the winter. We were hoping to get her fit for release in plenty of time to make that trip.
Another lovely side view of her, showing her feather patterning. It provides for great camouflage as they flit among the trees.
By this time, she was completely off of eating crickets (showed absolutely no interest in them), and her diet was more seed and worm-based. She was also eating on her own, completely. She actually didn’t let us feed her anymore, which was a good sign.
She loved all of the new leafy branches we’d put in for her. A large part of their diet in the wild is tree buds, and she’d go after those immediately whenever we put fresh branches in for her.
At this point, she was essentially releasable. However, there were some expected storms rolling in over the next few days, so we decided to keep her for a few days longer to give her the best chance.
Day 36 – Release Day
After storms the night before, Day 36 dawned beautifully. Confident that the weather was going to be nice for several days, and that the recent rainfall would give her plenty of drinking and feeding opportunities, we decided this would be the perfect day to send her on her way! We drove to a nearby nature preserve about a mile from where she was initially found and where we knew there to be others of her kind.
Bye Bye, Dumpling!
We opened the cage door and stepped back. After a few minutes, she hopped out and flitted immediately up into a tree. She didn’t hesitate at all. She immediately started exploring the branches, biting at tree buds and hopping from branch-to-branch like a wild bird. Pretty soon, we lost sight of her. Hopefully, you enjoyed Dumpling’s story, and learned a little about wild birds. I can’t stress enough that you shouldn’t try to raise wildlife of any sort unless you’re trained to. Find a local wildlife rehaber or veterinarian to help you out! Please let me know if you have any questions, and I encourage you all to enjoy natures little miracles that are all around you!

“That’s not true. It’s less than a penny. It’s 0.8% of the federal budget. You can’t even cut a coin small enough to represent how much money is spent on foreign aid. It’s not that much…”
“Now this idea that wars or natural disasters; tsunamis, earthquakes kill most of the people, that’s wrong. It pales, it’s dwarfed by the number of people killed by preventable diseases.”
“This (11%) represents the number of kids, 5 years old or younger, that die every year from non-communicable diseases; cancer, things you inherit.” “But ALL of this. Most of the circle is kids dying, 5 years old or younger, dying of communicable, preventable diseases.” “This is where we can change the world.”
“People think that we’ve been sending money to Africa for decades and nothing’s improved. Things are as bad as they ever were. Well that’s a MYTH, when you can show statistically that child mortality has gone down over the last couple of decades by a factor of 2. Been cut in half. Those are the data.” “We have a real opportunity to leave the world better than we found it, to dispel these myths and move on to improve the quality of life everywhere. So let’s prevent the diseases. Let’s address a preventable disaster.” Source: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UL4zoo8xijc Note: I do not wish to start arguments among the imgur community by sharing this information. Just want to spread awareness.

I had to say good bye to this little guy this morning :(
How I first found him in Mexico. He was dirty, scared. hungry and lonely. I was on the hunt for some beer and a little white flash caught my eye. He must have sensed that I was the gringo for him. He pulled out all the stops and danced and hopped and licked me like crazy.
When I got him back to my hotel room.
More assurance that he chose me, and not the other way around.
tiny squishy face
more relativity. Mom and sisters GS/Lab mix. Loves him.
I’m the happiest thing that’s ever happied!
“I hate everything”
He was just chilling under the blanket while I watched a show about wolves. This was his face for about 10 minutes after they first started howling.
struttin wit a stick
This is this afternoon… what? You thought he was dead? I have to say good bye to him every morning. I work.

February 9, 2010. On vacation in Boulder, CO. I was getting pants out of the trunk of my friend’s car when another car lost control on ice & crushed me in between. I remember thinking ‘that wasn’t so bad,’ but when I looked down my right leg was gone. It was severed & lying underneath the car.
It was a long 20 minutes waiting for an ambulance to get up the canyon. My friends & strangers passing by had tied a tourniquet, then covered me with blankets & jackets. I was on a life flight when these were taken by my friends who were with me.
About a week post accident. Efforts were made to reattach, but it was unsuccessful. I was put in a medically induced coma for a week after going into septic shock. It was officially amputated on Valentines Day.
First time out of bed, 2 weeks post accident. 10 surgeries by this time, mostly in reconstructing efforts. My surgeons saved a part of my ankle & grafted it below my knee to give me a chance at not having an above knee amputation.
I was transferred back to a hospital in Utah for 3 weeks of inpatient rehab. Parts of my leg began to die, so I had to go into a hyperbaric chamber 4 hours a day for a couple weeks. Altogether I was initially in the hospital for 6 weeks straight.
Despite treatment,some parts became necrotic, & I was readmitted beginning of April 2010.
After the dead parts were cut off, I used a wound vac between bi-weekly debriding surgeries & daily wound care.
