Okay that’s awful.

House said something like “Schizophrenics don’t have self-sacrifice, so that rules out schizophrenia.”

WHAT?

That’s sort of like “She understands what other people think, she can’t be autistic.”  Only worse.

Most episodes of House are awful in some way related to disability.

He basically believes that he has an unbounded right to do whatever he wants to patients.

Weird, I just started watching House myself. (It came out 10 years ago but I never watched it until this week when I noticed it on Netflix streaming and got curious). But that schizophrenia comment made me o_0 too. Even though in some ways that particular episode made kind of an interesting point about how probably lots of people get immediately written off as “crazy in some severe but unspecified way” without anyone bothering to find out what’s going on with them. Or look at how what they’re doing/saying makes sense in a certain context. Etc. But the whole idea that people with a schizophrenia DX are “incapable of self-sacrifice” or whatever is just bizarre. My guess is it was lazy plotting/writing but still.

Rambling now, but for all his flaws, one thing I do kind of like about House’s character is the fact that he really REALLY tries to stop people from dying. Regardless of his reasons, I’d much rather have a doctor like that than one who would too easily encourage signing DNR forms, etc.

(Also — and this just hit me today — the whole show is essentially a modern take of Sherlock Holmes in a medical setting. House -> Home -> Holmes; Wilson -> Watson, even.)

This crescent moon pendant is accompanied by a blue, galaxy pendant. Accented with a filigree pattern, this necklace makes a perfect accessory. Hung on a chain measuring 21” - 24” in length. Sold on Etsy.

Ooh.

that moment when you see the phrase ‘kick your fanny’, interpret it in the British sense rather than the American one and get confused. », ~K.

My mother (a British subject most of her life) always got extremely embarrassed when the term “fanny pack” came up, back when those little waist-pouch things were popular.

Whoah.

I’d honestly love to say that this is an April Fool’s joke letter, but sadly this rant from someone in dire need of a large, steaming cup of calm-down-dear is in fact very, very real.


Hey, if this is a trend, BRING IT! (Says the person who regularly apologizes to random objects anyway if she walks into them, etc.)..

amazing sleeve

Not as cool as a *real* robot arm, but awesome-looking nonetheless. I can’t imagine having the patience to sit through that much tattooing, even assuming multiple sessions were needed.

Holy crap! Is that real? It looks awesome but getting a tattoo that big in that location must have hurt like a melonfarmer.

This is an image that looks best with the hands placed in that position (otherwise the spread-apart holes don’t look that good) so I’d guess it’s body paint since not many people would get a tattoo for the sake of looking interesting in a certain pose

Ah, yes, that all makes sense. And looking at the full size version of the image, I can see what looks like brush strokes (meaning, yeah, this is more likely body paint than a tattoo). I hadn’t even noticed the hand-positioning aspect, though. Which also makes sense, though I have seen some amazingly badass “biomechanical” tattoos that have a similar “interesting stuff revealed under skin” effect. Though those are usually made to look fine in any position.
