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.
CAN YOU LITERALLY BELIEVE HOW FUCKING STUPID THEY ARE

Just incase anyone out there was looking for them.
My motto is “What would Tyler Oakley do?”
The real question is “What wouldn’t he do?”
This is so important!
I never know what to ask and end up looking like a fool cause I don’t have a question prepared.
Don’t be me.
EXCUSE ME BUT THIS RING. NO ONE NOTICED IT?????
Actually I’ve seen people mention it since the first episode.
It’s Capaldi’s wedding ring. He never takes it off, even when acting.
To add to the story, he refuses to take it off because when his acting career was struggling, his wife never gave up on him. When he landed his first major gig, he decided to not take it off, to represent he was there because of his wife’s support.
harry and hermione’s relationship is so important because it shows that two characters can love each other deeply but not in a romantic way and there are not enough boy/girl unconditional, innocent friendships like that in books and that is why i am refusing to accept that J.K. wanted them together

A reservoir of water three times the volume of all the oceans has been discovered deep beneath the Earth’s surface. The finding could help explain where Earth’s seas came from.
The water is hidden inside a blue rock that lies 700 kilometres underground in the mantle, the layer of hot rock between Earth’s surface and its core.
Some geologists think water arrived in comets as they struck planets, but the new discovery supports an alternative idea that the ocean oozed out of Earth’s interior layer.
OH MY GODDDDDDD -NERDS OUT-
That’s where the lizard people live
WHAT THE FUCK
I just wanna point something out.
You know how you always see those pictures of the strange types of fish that live in the deep, deep sea?
like this one
or this one
and this one
If any and if possible imagine what the fish look like in the DEEP, DEEP sea.
I’m smelling a million dollar creepy story.

you know what that means?
My new favorite gif
A woman from Dallas woke up as a quadrupled amputee after giving birth.
How on earth did this happen?
It turns out that a common Group A strep infection had set in and was eating away at her body. Her husband made the decision for surgeons to amputate her arms and legs in hopes that they could save her life.
There are a lot of holes in this story, but I could not find a reputable news source to give more information.
One insightful comment on the video says: It’s called Sepsis, it’s a systemic infection affecting the blood, essentially her entire body was infected. The body tries to save vital organs by pulling blood supply to the core and away from the extremities, they die off and require amputation.
I HAD THIS AND ITS FUCKING AWFUL.
I’ve half of all hospital deaths are attributable to this, please god read up on it. It’s just a stupid blood infection that often goes unnoticed with warning signs such as flu like symptoms, nausea and diarrhoea.
My friends mum died on Christmas Day from it after going to A+E with a urinary tract infection.
It can be treated simply with a course of antibiotics if caught early but if not, it can take hold and kill you within 8 hrs.
Please be aware.
It often goes by unnoticed
Jfc is Canadia even real
