if you’re like me and deal with bad anxiety I recommend RRcherrypie's videos (food warning by the way, like 99% of their videos involve food or food-like items) they're strangely calming and interesting to watch. it's a good way to distract me from whatever I'm anxious over, and I hope it may help for someone who may need it
PSA - PLEASE READ AND SPREAD HE WORD!!!
IF YOU SEE THIS PLANT AT ALL, DO NOT TOUCH IT!!!
Giant hogweed (Heracleum mantegazzianum) is an invasive herb in the carrot family which was originally brought to North America from Asia and has since become established in the New England, Mid-Atlantic, and Northwest regions of the United States. Giant hogweed grows along streams and rivers and in fields, forests, yards and roadsides, and a giant hogweed plant can reach 14 feet or more in height with compound leaves up to 5 feet in width.Giant Hogweed sap contains toxic chemicals known as Furanocoumarins. When these chemicals come into contact with the skin and are exposed to sunlight, they cause a condition called Phytophotodermatitis, a reddening of the skin often followed by severe blistering and burns. These injuries can last for several months, and even after they have subsided the affected areas of skin can remain sensitive to light for years. Furanocoumarins are also carcinogenic and teratogenic, meaning they can cause cancer and birth defects. The sap can also cause temporary (or even permanent) blindness if introduced into the eyes.
If someone comes into physical contact with Giant Hogweed, the following steps should be taken:
If a reaction occurs, the early application of topical steroids may lessen the severity of the reaction and ease the discomfort. The affected area of skin may remain sensitive to sunlight for a few years, so applying sun block and keeping the affected area shielded from the sun whenever possible are sensible precautions
- Wash the affected area thoroughly with soap and COLD water as soon as possible.
- Keep the exposed area away from sunlight for 48 hours.
- If Hogweed sap gets into the eyes, rinse them with water and wear sunglasses.
- See a doctor if any sign of reaction sets in.PLEASE, DO NOT JUST READ AND SCROLL! THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT AND POTENTIALLY LIFE-SAVING INFORMATION!!!
Extra note: if you live in Oregon, New Jersey, Michigan or New York and see one of these, call your state’s department of agriculture to report it, and trained professionals will come kill it before it can produce seeds and spread.
Frankly, if you see one in general, probably call your DOA and see if there’s a program in place.
Do not burn it, because the smoke will give you the same reaction.
If for some ungodly reason there isn’t a professional who can handle it for you (and please, please use a professional), the DOA of New York has [this guide] for how to deal with it yourself.
please tag your snk, snk is an alright series but it makes me really uncomfortable because its creator is a war crime apologist and has trivialized the murder of millions of koreans, chinese, indonesians, filipinos, vietnamese etc and its really disturbing to see literally every day how the snk fandom does not care and is pretending nothing is wrong with that
also id like to apologize for generalizing the snk fandom; i did not intend for this post to gain attention or become a hub for information and therefore let my emotions get a little ahead of me, and it seems that the biggest problem is that most people do not know anything about this
i’m reblogging this again because after reading up on these links, i’m pretty overwhelmed. i know just about everyone i follow posts snk and loves it, but personally i really can’t be a part of the fandom anymore.
i know, for me, my beliefs and biases bleed into my stories and reflect my heart. i find my own work so close to who i am that i really can’t accept this kind of behavior and racism from an author i previously supported.
plus Mikasa’s character, one of my favorites, is pretty ruined for me. being named after a battleship that had control over Korea, her story seems disgustingly contrived, given that she is almost sold into sex slavery as a child and THAT is precisely some of the war crimes committed by Japan to Korean women. in essence, Isayama respects and admires war crimes and believes Koreans should be thankful to Japan for colonizing them.
that’s fucked up, dude.
i would appreciate if people tagged their snk, too. thanks guys.
yep yep i still post snk but i do tag all of it and it really disgusts me that so many people in the fandom (even who ARE aware of all this shit) continue to put isayama on a pedestal
PLEASE tag your snk because it VERY REASONABLY MAKES A LOT OF PEOPLE UNCOMFORTABLE + ANGRY
