A rafter drifts under Vatnajökull, Iceland’s largest glacier. Iceland sits athwart the volatile Mid-Atlantic Ridge, where the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates pull apart, creating an extensive and active volcano zone.
the accuracy hurts.
Notice how Shan Yu doesn’t even question it or make a comment about “BUT YOU’RE A GIRL” he just instantly goes into a “I’LL TEACH YOU TO KILL MY MEN AND STEAL MY VICTORY” rage and I think about this a lot sometimes
((Well that might have to do with the fact that he’s a Hun. Women among the Huns had higher status than their Chinese counterparts and even some of their own men. Women were free to hunt and fight along side of the men, could choose their own husbands and divorce him if she choose to. There were even records of clans being led by women leaders. So for Shan Yu Mulan is just another soldier))
thank you, history side of tumblr.
He also might not have been able to see very well, due to whatever horrible disease has taken hold in his eyeballs.
Pretty serious Wilson’s Disease judging by the copper buildup in in irises, and apparent melanocytosis localized to his sclera.
Thank you medical side of tumblr
… I have never heard this. I’m not saying it’s not true, just that I’d like to verify it before I start telling it to people. So I will start looking into that pronto.
Followers, any thoughts/contributions?
Reblogging this here to look for further input. Followers? Anyone who is smart have any insight here? My instinct is that depression and anxiety may not be the same neurologically as things like ADHD, etc, but they change how the brain works and how that person functions in society, and I would consider them neuroatypical for those reasons. Thoughts?
I can understand the reasoning that not all mental disabilities are inherently what the NT labels are going for, and I agree, but it’s difficult to draw that line in the sand. If what is trying to be distinguished here is a physical difference versus a chemical difference… it’s going to be hard to parse out at this point in what we know about brain structures. Your brain’s plasticity, particularly early in life, makes it very difficult to tell whether your brain was neurotypical at some point, and your experiences shaped your neural connections and brain anatomy differently (which then reinforce those experiences, which then reinforce those connections).
Even in the ones that are more chemically based, the origins of a lot of disorders are not uniform, even if genetic predispositions exist. From my understanding, anxiety and depression can be the result of injury or genetic inheritance/structural issues just as much as they can be a “chemical problem” in a typically-developed brain. I also don’t really understand how bipolar disorders could be considered non-NT but depression is NT? Bipolar disorders involve neurotransmitters just as much as anxiety and depression do, since depression is part of the bipolar experience.
I’ve often wondered about the Neuroatypical vs. NT label and whether it was appropriative to apply it to experiences that weren’t ASD-related. So I’m not saying the asker is wrong, I just don’t know if it’s helpful to point to “neurotransmitter disorder” versus non-neurotransmitter disorders as the defining point?
I am allistic with depression and anxiety, though, so I make no attempt to speak for or over anyone. Just weighing in with my understanding of psychology.
I remember when I thought people in their 20’s were adults. Now all of my friends are in their 20’s and everybody is just kind of fumbling around bumping into each other, trying to figure out where the free food is
Excellent gif use
have you ever gotten to that certain point in the school year where you just
Ah, yes. The second day.
You mean halfway through the first day?
This whole scene is gold.
This wasn’t sherlock….this was Benedict
one time my religion teacher who has a monobrow asked me “what the hell did you do to your hair?” because i had a blonde streak through it and i said “what the hell did you do to your eyebrow” and he sent me outside
when i came back in he asked everyone what monotheism was and i said it meant a religion that worshiped one god because mono means one as in monobrow and he sent me out again
