A tip from your favorite nurse
(that’d be me)
Always have eggs in your fridge
You just never know when someone will split their head open
Or cut their finger while cooking
And so on
See that membrane there?
While the blood is gushing - hold pressure and crack open an egg
Peel that there membrane off and put it on the wound (continue holding pressure)
The membrane will harden and keep the wound closed until you can get to the ER for stitches
If you even need them that is
Nature: 1, Band aids: 0
I did some research on this (because I do that now, fucking science get out) and it seems that this was done in the early 1900s somewhat frequently. It was used as a way to treat just about any kind of skin wound, from burn to cut to in at least one case an ulcer. It actually helps the wound heal not by preventing blood loss but by replacing part of the skin tissue and helping it grow.
It also helps in healing scars and reducing their visibility.
Also, if you have a splinter, smack one of these things on there and it will draw it out of your skin. No more shitting around with pliers.
it will also suck the poison stuff out of mosquito bites and stop them from being itchy
woaaah i didnt know!! awesome stuff :D
Did not know the mosquito bite or splinter thing! EGGS—IS THERE ANYTHING THEY CAN’T DO?

fake movie meme: a swashbuckling adventure starring natalie dormer, katheryn winnick, gugu mbatha-raw, and lucy liu; with laverne cox, q’orianka kilcher, rachel hurd-wood, and anne hathaway.
the sauvage sisters once had a reputation as the most fearsome pirates to ever terrorize the caribbean colonies. but their luck’s run out. now grace (dormer) and columba (winnick) have found themselves stranded in port elizabeth after a mutiny led by their treacherous first mate, mercy sampson (liu).
cooking up a tale about having survived a shipwreck, the sauvages throw themselves on the mercy of the settlement’s most important family, the porters. while catherine porter (cox) is glad to welcome them, her niece amelia (mbatha-raw) doesn’t buy their story for a moment.
amelia has more important things to worry about, though, especially once her little sister felicity (kilcher) is kidnapped. along with felicity’s wealthy fiancee miss gravesend (hurd-wood), amelia seeks help through commodore elinor godwin (hathaway) of the royal navy.
but grace and columba recognize mercy sampson’s work in the kidnapping, and they know that even the royal navy doesn’t stand a chance at rescuing felicity. it takes a pirate to take down a pirate, and the sauvages were - are - damn good pirates.

if you complain about “skinny shaming”, do you speak up when you hear a fat joke?
More and more we’re seeing strong female black characters enter the silver screen, leading the charge with shows like Scandal, Sleepy Hollow and How To Get Away With Murder. And that’s awesome. It is. But they follow a similar format where the characters are very smart, tough, and able to tumble with the roughest.
And if feminism has taught me anything, being a “girly girl” is just as cool as being a strong girl, and that sometimes those two don’t have to be mutually exclusive. With all these very “serious” roles, I feel like we need to take notice of Candice Patton as Iris West on The CW’s The Flash.
The character of Iris is presented as your “every” girl. In fact, I found her to be the most relatable character on the show despite being a 6’2” tall Korean guy.
From many points, I love how her character is presented. She’s hip and trendy, and has a touch of the “lazy” blues (the whole blahhh i don’t wanna do thisssss), has a romantic relationship with an older man that is also her father’s partner and is NOT shamed for it by Barry, and she is a good and smart person.
But here’s what Candice Patton brings to the role: She fills all of Iris’ character traits but then adds a whole extra personality with her acting. I found it to be very prominent in Episode 2 but she is WICKEDLY charming. I mean, I’m pretty sure she’s charming the hearts out of viewers because she’s got a VERY good genuine smile that MATCHES Barry’s genuineness, and that is perhaps Candice’s biggest contribution. Making Iris someone who matches with Barry’s genuine goodness, but not having to resort to being the same person.
And it’s nice to see that. It’s nice to see that a person of color is a love interest for the white male hero. And it’s even MORE AWESOME knowing that she is straight up canon his future wife. So a POC love interest that isn’t just some “arc” but is actual OTP? Hell yes!
Feminism and POC representation is more than just “casting black people”. It’s casting black, Latinx, Asian, etc. people in ALL kinds of roles. So that means both leading AND supporting AND main love interest.
