Scientists examine a 15-year-old girl who lived in the Inca Empire, then was sacrificed and remained frozen for 500 years….
Unearthed in 1999 from the 22,000-foot summit of Mount Llullaillaco, a volcano 300 miles west of here near the Chilean border, their frozen bodies were among the best preserved mummies ever found, with internal organs intact, blood still present in the heart and lungs, and skin and facial features mostly unscathed. No special effort had been made to preserve them. The cold and the dry, thin air did all the work. They froze to death as they slept, and 500 years later still looked like sleeping children, not mummies.
This is “the maiden” and she is extraordinary. After a CAT scan or two it was determined that she had tuberculosis. Do you know what this means?!?!? It means that tuberculosis was a preexisting condition and not initially brought over to the Americas by Europeans. WOW
My husband is going to make me drive him to the shoppette.
First time driving his car with him in it… pray for me.
- “Eat” the damn Play-doh cookies.
- Slurp the invisible soup.
- Pretend that they’re not causing grievous bodily harm as they “brush” your hair.
- Always be serious when asked what you’d like for dinner, and never say something silly like rabbit soup. Because they will go get their stuffed one off the bed, put it in your best pot, and fill said pot with water. Then place it on your desk.
- Greet their make believe friends and ask how their day was.
- Always kiss the teddy bear goodnight. It has feelings too.
- Always pretend to die when they shoot you.
- If you are having a fake war with them and you shoot them and they say they can’t die because they are invincible, you don’t shoot them again, because they are invincible.
- Yes, their drawing does look like a butterfly, not a bunch of jumbled up lines.
- Them pounding on the piano is the best thing you have ever heard.
no but seriously it’s very important to a child’s development to not be shut down by parents and other caregivers
I quit Viola when I was in Orchestra because I heard my mom say she thought the sound of me practicing was obnoxious/annoying [because I messed a lot, because I was learning].. then my teacher started sitting me out of pieces for concerts because I didn’t know them well enough because I wouldn’t practice .. I never told my mom that. I know she didn’t mean it the way she said it.. but I was young. and I didn’t want to be a bother.
Meet 9-year-old Joshua. He recently had to go in for surgery and was so nervous that he brought along his stuffed wolf. The wolf had a tear in its leg, so Joshua asked if his doctor could do a wolf surgery too. His parents said ‘no.’
But when they walked into the recovery room to see their son, they discovered the little wolf laying next to him; this time, with a surgical mask, a little cast, and surgical quality sutures in his leg.
We think the entire surgical staff deserves some serious respect and love for this act of kindness.
Couple of things, First of all, I drove to pick him up! Even went into 3rd gear for the first time despite being pretty scared about doing it. On that side of post though the speed limit is a little higher so it kinda forced me too. a-queen-named-kingsley areann92 woo0!! Only stalled leaving the house but it was weird like the car had a hard time at first, Matt said it’s probably cause it was really cold out cause apparently his car likes to be temperamental in the cold. After it did that on the way out, I guess it was warmed up enough because I didn’t have any other problems. But I drove all the way to the other side of base, on main roads. Farthest I’ve driven so far in his car.
just wanna get rich enough to buy my mom all the shit she deserves and then die
Thanks to my blood sugar & blood pressure crash this morning I haven’t been able to do much of anything.
It’s been 4 hours and I’m still so light-headed & dizzy that I have to keep catching myself on the wall to make sure I don’t fall over. But my nausea is gone, which I am very thankful for.
On the positive side, I started reading the Wicked series by Gregory Maguire and I’m about 10% of the way into that. Not quite what I was expecting but it’s pretty good so far.
This will FOREVER make me laugh.
omg the notes tho
IM SHARING THIS FUCKING TWICE IN A ROW BECAUSE YOU HAVE NO FUCKING IDEA HOW PERFECT THIS IS.
Re-dyed my hair finally! Back to black :) I’ve been dying my hair black since I was about 12-13 but I hadn’t done it in about 8 months so my hair was really brown and nasty looking (imo) and I tied my blue away from the dye when I did it so I managed to not color over it! ^_________^
