I’ve seen a lot of posts on my dash tonight about users who are threatening suicide, with other Tumblr members posting in effort to try to get ahold of them. I think you all should see this:
IF THERE IS EVER A TUMBLR USER WHO HAS POSTED A GOOD-BYE MESSAGE, SUICIDE NOTE, VIDEO, OR ANYTHING OF THE SORT, PLEASE FOLLOW THIS POST.
1. Scroll to the top of your dashboard.
2. See the circular question mark icon at the top? It’s the third one over from your home symbol. Click on that, and a screen similar to the one in the picture will come up.
3. Where you can type in questions, the box with the magnifying glass at the top, type in the word “suicide.”
4. Click on the first link that shows up. It should say, “Pass the URL of the blog on to us.”
5. Type in the user’s URL and tell Tumblr admin that the user is contemplating suicide and has posted a message indicating that they are going through with it or will be attempting. Hit send! Tumblr administration will perform a number of actions to contact the user and take the necessary steps to prevent the suicide.
TUMBLR: THIS COULD SAVE A USER’S LIFE. PLEASE DO NOT IGNORE SUICIDE THREATS.
Reblog this to keep other users aware. Suicide isn’t a joke, and neither is someone’s life. If you didn’t know this, someone else may not, either. Pass it on.
People who grew up trick-or-treating with siblings and friends, did you guys do candy trades at the end of the night?
When we were young, my siblings, cousins, friends, and any other kids at our house on Halloween (we were kind of THE household in the family/neighborhood where ppl would gather for events) would gather around in a circle after trick or treating and dump our candy into piles on the floor/table. We’d sort the candy into stacks of different types and then negotiate and trade some of it with each other for a preferred candy someone else had. It was a tradition we did this almost EVERY Halloween, from when we were about 5 or 6 to when we grew out of trick or treating in our late teens.
I know that word carries negative weight for some people, but come on guys, READ THE ROOM.
isn't it insane though how schizophrenic people are viewed as violent and dangerous by the majority of society when in reality schizophrenic people are nearly 14 times more likely to be on the receiving end of violence than to be the perpetrators...
Ok, I’ve heard the story of the invention of potato chips countless times, and I too had no idea he was black until just now, but there’s more;
I vaguely remember reading about George Crum and his invention of potato chips in a cartoony children’s picture book when I was in elementary school (I can’t remember what the book was called), and Crum was literally drawn as a white blonde guy. W T F.
