Can we all just take a minute to appreciate how RIDICULOUSLY talented my little sister is. Like, holy shit, you guys. She manages to do this with hands that are barely working right now, and lives with constant pain in her entire body. So proud of her, and her talent.
Can we talk about how Cap and Bucky have opposite masks?
Cap has mouth and eyes exposed, forehead covered. Bucky has mouth covered and eyes painted black, his forehead exposed.
What a lovely symmetry.
But the symbolism too. Cap’s is a helmet, protection, to keep him safe from physical harm. Bucky’s is a muzzle to keep him silent and anonymous and on a leash.

real quick, i decided to do one more Torterra for Ventura County—where I live and go to school. Just for the hell of it.
the grass is this green in the suburbs, at least ahhaa
the goal of the non-binary petition is flawed, this one is much more realistic and has a serious concrete goal that will help people definitely more than harm them (which the nb petition has the possibility of doing)
Portal 1 is $2.50
The bundle for both is $6.24

This is black lipstick.
Not any black lipstick though, its only $9.95 on etsy from a lovely store named Etherealle.
Im sure if you’ve ever purchased black lipstick before the main issue is getting something very pigmented that won’t rub off easily. Well, this is the perfect stuff. In the photo I only had to apply one layer of it and it rolled on smoothly and doesn’t feel oily or waxy at all!
I’ve taken a drink of sweet tea, kissed and touched my lips with my fingers just before this picture,and its still black as my soul.
Not only is it the dream lipstick, Etherealle also included a small sample baggy of blush that normally costs $2.80 in their shop for free! (As if the lipstick wasnt perfect enough.)
So heres a link to their shop for all of you lipstick lovers and cosplayers in need.
And This Is Why You Shouldn’t Get Sick In America
Many believe that the US healthcare system is the best in the world. Not so according to the World Health Organization’s ranking of the world’s health systems. The US doesn’t even rank in the top 25. It ranks 37th and is the most expensive in the world. I would argue that even if we had the best healthcare system in the world, what good is it, if no one can afford to access it.
Most companies are buying 60/40-policys for their employees these days, but even if you are lucky enough to have good insurance with 80/20-policy coverage, that 20 percent your responsible for can drive you right into bankruptcy as easily as the 60-40 policy given the cost of healthcare.
Insurance cost have been going up dramatically in the last two decades, long before the new Affordable Healthcare Act has taken affect, in some cases as much as 35% per year.
But have you noticed the latest trick the insurance companies have roll out?
Yes, Higher Deductible… most averaging $5,000 per year, per person, but I have seen some as high as $10,000 per year. For those of you that are wondering, this tactic is specifically designed too stop you from using your insurance. It reduces the insurance companies out of pocket liability by shift costs onto consumers, especially those dealing with chronic illness such as diabetes and arthritis. Consequently, because consumers can’t afford the deductible they will avoid necessary care to save money.
Although insurance companies are a problem, the real crook is the healthcare system it self. A corrupt and bloated system desperately in need of reform!
OKAY SO I KNEW THAT TECHNICALLY IN AMERICA THAT YOU PAY FOR HEALTHCARE BUT LIKE THE IDEA IS SO BIZARRE TO ME THAT I’D NEVER CONSIDERED THAT YOU’D GET… A BILL?????? FOR BEING…. ILL?????????? I LITERALLY DON’T
how can anaesthetic cost that much??
how is this legal??
WHAT? And I thought having to pay £7 ($11.55) for stronger prescription allergy meds instead of £4 ($6.60) for the less effective store-brand ones was ridiculous.
You have to pay for the ambulance!?
This is JUST the ambulance. With insurance.
The death of a cell.
This picture is an amazing 3D illustration of apoptosis. The word “apoptosis” originates from Ancient Greek ἀπό, “away from” and πτῶσις, “falling” and it is a regulated process of cell death.
There are two ways of cell death: necrosis and apoptosis. Necrosis is a form of traumatic cell death that results from acute cellular injury, and it usually causes inflammation, because of cell’s content released outside in the extracellular fluid. Apoptosis, on the other hand, could confer advantages during an organism’s lifecycle and it produces cell fragments called apoptotic bodies that phagocytic cells are able to engulf and quickly remove, before the cell’s content spills out onto surrounding cells, causing damage.
A cell initiates intracellular apoptotic signaling in response to a stress, which may bring about cell suicide. The binding of nuclear receptors by glucocorticoids, heat, radiation, nutrient deprivation, viral infection, hypoxia and increased intracellular calcium concentration, for example, by damage to the membrane, can all trigger the release of intracellular apoptotic signals by a damaged cell.
Research in and around apoptosis has increased substantially since the early 1990s. In addition to its importance as a biological phenomenon, defective apoptotic processes have been implicated in an extensive variety of diseases. Excessive apoptosis causes atrophy, whereas an insufficient amount results in uncontrolled cell proliferation, such as cancer.
