Seriously tumblr you are some of the dumbest fucking people I swear to fucking GOD
Exposure therapy is one of the most common forms of therapy these days for anxiety/PTSD, and just because it didn’t work for YOU means you have the right to intentionally mislead all these other self-diagnosing idiots on here.
Jesus fucking CHRIST.

Yeah, there’s a difference between exposure therapy, which when done by someone who knows what they’re doing can be very effective and helpful and dragging your friend into a dark room and forcing them to sit alone in there for thirty minutes when they have a serious phobia of the dark and simply triggering an anxiety attack.
This post was referring to the latter. Not to exposure therapy, but to people intentionally triggering other people and calling it a cure when they are neither a licensed professional, nor know the first thing about how exposure therapy is done.
So please stop because you’re not making yourself look clever, you’re actually just coming across as a huge, self-rightous jerk. (And also you’re ableist language is not appreciated at all)

I’m just gonna say exposure therapy is a slow moving process. If someone is afraid of spiders, for instance, you don’t immediately cover them in spiders. You start by talking about spiders, then when they’re comfortable with that you show them a picture of a spider, then you show them a live spider, then you make them hold it. It’s not a one night process. It takes weeks, possibly months. Don’t jump to conclusions; do research before you say things.

Half-Mourning Dress
1910-1912
The Victoria & Albert Museum

What’s a “half-mourning” dress?  Mourning in the front, party in the back?

Half-Mourning was the third stage of mourning for a widow. She would be expected to mourn her husband for at least two years, the stages being Full Mourning, Second Mourning and Half-Mourning. The different stages regulated what they would be wearing, with Full Mourning being all black and with no ornamentation, including the wodow’s veil, and the stages after that introducing some jewellery and modest ornamentation. When in Half-Mourning you would gradually include fabrics in other colors and sort of ease your way out of mourning. 
Wow, I am happy you made that joke so I could interpert it as a serious question and have an excuse to ramble on about clothing customs of the past, I am a historical fashion nerd.

That’s very informative, but I’m going to stick with my original head canon:


I love both the informed fashion history and the hilariously off-the-wall halves of this post.

anyone else think it looks like

what?

The wheels take impact and stress off your legs, and the position helps your spine, but you’re still doing running motions instead of biking motions, so your legs are getting a good workout, and you can go for longer

Also, Superman

Kinda reminds me of that guy who made a cardboard Blue Falcon wrapped around a big tricycle.

Teen’s invention could charge your phone in 20 seconds

Waiting hours for a cellphone to charge may become a thing of the past, thanks to an 18-year-old high-school student’s invention. She won a $50,000 prize Friday at an international science fair for creating an energy storage device that can be fully juiced in 20 to 30 seconds.

Everybody, remember this face.Remember this name.If this becomes a commonly used & highly lauded discovery, at some point a White guy is going to take credit, even if he has to word it like “Improved upon a previous…”No no noFuck that guy.Remember this brown girl.Remeeeemmmmmberrrrr


What about her name? I keep seeing this all over my dashboard, but I’ve never seen it with her name in the actual post and not just in the link.

When I grow up I want to be Ming-Na Wen.

She’s the voice of Mulan, as if she wasn’t amazing enough.

She broke it with her fingers. Not a fist, her fingers.

Girl is 50 years old.

FIFTY. YEARS. OLD.

fun fact: When you break things with your hands like that you have t break your fingers on purpose before so that they heal stronger. So basically this woman is so badass she broke her hands just to do this. 

You asshat, you’re making it sound like she snaps her fingers in half. 

Martial artists like Jackie Chan and Bruce Lee (and yes, fucking Ming-Na Wen, that beautiful badass) will build up their bone strength by repeatedly (and fairly gently) striking sand, gravel, wood and steel - this creates tons of microfractures in their bones (smaller than even a hairline fracture) so the bones will heal over again and make the bones stronger and denser with increased deposits of calcium. 

This has to be done over long-ass periods of time, so the bones have time to heal, and none of the fractures expand into actual breaks. 

Oh, and she’s doing precise-ass kicks in HIGH HEELS. 

she kicks ass like a coursing river

with all the force of a great typhoon

With all the strength of a raging fire

As adorable as the dark side of the moooooooon

[Totally Confirmed] To make sure the group was stable enough to handle the intensity of a comback, SM hired a therapist to analyze EXO’s sanity levels. TCEF has received exclusive access to the notes the therapist produced after in-depth interviews with each member. The notes can be read below.
