As someone who wants to study the human consciousness I found this very interesting.

Scott Routley was a “vegetable”. A car accident seriously injured both sides of his brain, and for 12 years, he was completely unresponsive.

Unable to speak or track people with his eyes, it seemed that Routley was unaware of his surroundings, and doctors assumed he was lost in limbo. They were wrong.

In 2012, Professor Adrian Owen decided to run tests on comatose patients like Scott Routley. Curious if some “vegetables” were actually conscious, Owen put Routley in an fMRI and told him to imagine walking through his home. Suddenly, the brain scan showed activity. Routley not only heard Owen, he was responding.

Next, the two worked out a code. Owen asked a series of “yes or no” questions, and if the answer was “yes,” Routley thought about walking around his house. If the answer was “no,” Routley thought about playing tennis.

These different actions showed activity different parts of the brain. Owen started off with easy questions like, “Is the sky blue?” However, they changed medical science when Owen asked, “Are you in pain?” and Routley answered, “No.” It was the first time a comatose patient with serious brain damage had let doctors know about his condition.

While Scott Routley is still trapped in his body, he finally has a way to reach out to the people around him. This finding has huge implications.

You find yourself in a group of people standing next to a cliff.

Suddenly, someone pushes another person, sending them over the edge. Thankfully, the victim is able to hold on to the edge rather than fall to their death, but nobody makes a move to help them or stop the perpetrator. Everyone, including yourself, simply stands there watching.

Angry that they’ve been pushed, angry that nobody is helping them as they struggle not to fall, the victim screams, ‘Is anybody going to fucking help me??’

That gets everyone’s attention. ‘Why are you mad at me?’ one person asks. ‘I didn’t push you.’

'Nobody is going to want to help you with an attitude like that.'

'You're just as bad as him.'

Nobody makes a move to help.

The victim screams in frustration, their fingers slipping. ‘You’ve got to be fucking joking!’ they shout as they lose their grip.

'You catch more flies with honey than with vinegar.' You say as you walk away.

Welcome to the anti-sj/’real justice’ movement.

Man, I love that one Disney movie

marauders4evr:

That opens up with chanting in a different language

image

image

With the royal family

image

image

And the adorable children

image

image

And the tragic death(s)

image

image

And then our hero runs away

image

image

And sings a really catchy song about being free

image

image

Without realizing that the kingdom is in ruins

image

image

And is being ruled by a villain who wants to be king

image

image

A villain who is really good at causing guilt trips

image

image

image

image

And so our hero goes back

image

image

And they all live happily ever after

image

image

It’s such a great movie

I hate this show

Oh, a guy that thinks it’s absolutely normal to dress however he wants because gender norms are stupid and it should be totally normal for a guy to dress in skirts just because they are cute, just like women dress in pants.

How dare he

bad tumblr justice strikes again

Princess Jellyfish is adorable and entirely about loving who you are and being you. It’s like top tier adorable.

If you wanna talk shit about Kuragehime we gonna fight because it is a wonderful uplifting show about inner beauty, and if the translated phrase “I’m perfectly normal” blows away all the other fantastic messages for you, maybe you’re
looking for a problem amongst a show that is distinctly about promoting freedom of expression in spite of gender
