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.
Also, if you have a splinter, smack one of these things on there and it will draw it out of your skin. No more shitting around with pliers.
it will also suck the poison stuff out of mosquito bites and stop them from being itchy
woaaah i didnt know!! awesome stuff :D
Did not know the mosquito bite or splinter thing! EGGS—IS THERE ANYTHING THEY CAN’T DO?
They cant fix the economy
THE FUTURE IS NOW
it’s almost 2014 already are we still arguing on whether to give female characters the equal amount of screentime on movies as male characters
THIS IS NOT EVEN UP FOR FUCKING DEBATE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
pls mom don’t hate me
The content of this comic is heartbreaking but the art style is kinda hilarious. Could you please tell me what to feel?
Actually me too, I find this heartbreaking and hilarous at the same time this is so weird.
ABOUT AMENDMENT 1
What the Language of Amendment 1 says:
"Nothing in this Constitution secures or protects a right to abortion or requires the funding of an abortion. The people retain the right through their elected state representatives and state senators to enact, amend, or repeal statutes regarding abortion, including, but not limited to, circumstances of pregnancy resulting from rape or incest or when necessary to save the life of the mother."
What the Language of Amendment 1 means:
Amendment 1 is carefully worded in order to deliberately confuse voters about the real intention and motives of those behind the amendment. The people and organizations supporting Amendment 1 have clearly said that they believe all abortion should be illegal, no matter what. When many people read the Amendment, they believe that there will be guaranteed exceptions for women who are victims of rape or incest, or when a woman’s health is in danger.
In simple terms, Amendment 1 says two things:
1) There is absolutely no right to abortion, and Politicians can pass laws for exceptions in case of rape or incest, or when a woman’s life is in danger, if they choose to.
2) There is no requirement that they do so. There is not even an exception for extreme cases like when a pregnant woman needs treatment for cancer.X

As someone with a uterus in Tennessee this bill frightens, concerns, and horrifies me to no end. We need to raise as much awareness as possible before its time to vote in November so that as many people as possible know and can keep them from slipping this in at the poles! Please, even if you don’t live in Tennessee, signal boost this post. Planed Parenthood has been hosting phone banks, neighborhood sweeps, tables, and more to try to raise awareness, and your help could be vital to this cause.
