THIS TOO GUYS. BE SAFE.

This is sorta manditory to reblog.

😳

This joint kills you faster than the bubonic plaque. True

thats because it was designed in the lab to do that

Oh jesus christ. Not one of these “Let’s talk about the symptoms without discussing the realities of the disease!” shit posts. All these do is make people panic and think their cold is some sneaky form of Ebola.
OKAY LISTEN UP YOU GUYS. ITS TIME TO PULL UP A CHAIR, TURN ON YOUR SCIENCE EARS AND:

(I’m using Bill Nye because this is gonna be a goddamn science talk and I know you people love nostalgia)
HERE ARE SOME VERY IMPORTANT FACTS ABOUT EBOLA:
EBOLA IS ONLY TRANSMITTED THROUGH CONTACT WITH THE BLOOD OR BODY FLUID OF AN INFECTED PERSON.This is why one of its nicknames is “the Caregiver’s disease”! Because most people who contract it are people who were taking care of an infected patient or handled bodies with Ebola. So the general rule of thumb to avoid Ebola (and dozens of other disease much more prevalant everywhere) is: IF YOU SEE BLOOD OR BODILY FLUIDS THAT’S NOT FROM YOUR BODY - DON’T FUCKING TOUCH IT.
THE EBOLA VIRUS HAS A SHITTY SURVIVAL RATE OUTSIDE A HOST. This means that once a strain of the virus leaves a person’s body outside through blood, vomit, snot, etc - it can’t survive very long at all. In fact many scientific studies find that it’s hard to estimate exactly how long it can survive because their samples tend to start to break down before they can even run tests. This means sitting on a toilet seat in Dallas will not get you fucking ebola. 
ONE OF THE MAIN REASONS THIS OUTBREAK HAS GOTTEN SO BAD IS DUE TO SHITTY HEALTH CONDITIONS AND INFRASTRUCTURE IN THE INFECTED COUNTRIES. And by shitty, I mean it’s hard to get clean water and supplies level of shitty. While we can argue about the shitty state of US healthcare (and it’s 100% valid discussion) - it really doesn’t compare to what these clinics have.
IT DOES NOT HAVE A 100% MORTALITY RATE. Yes, it can be very deadly (from 25-90%), but again, most of the reasons it’s been so deadly is because of the shitty health conditions pointed out in #3. But it is completely possible to survive through Ebola if you get proper treatment (which you shouldn’t have it in the first place if you followed #1).
NOT EVERY AFRICAN COUNTRY HAS BEEN INFECTED WITH EBOLA. In fact compared to other epidemics, the rate this one has spread is small (I mean it is tragic, no question about that, but objectively speaking it doesn’t even hold a candle to the Bubonic plague, Spanish Influenza, HIV/AIDS or even H1N1). The countries infected are Sierra Leone, Guinea and Liberia, all located in West Africa. And by infected, I mean about 0.0004% of their combined populations of 20 million are infected - which in pandemic terms this is tiny. So if you or your friends or your family who are either traveling or living in other parts of Africa you really shouldn’t worry about Ebola because- Africa is fucking huge.
THERE IS NO SOLID EVIDENCE IT WAS CONSTRUCTED IN A LAB. This is a conspiracy theory that’s been thrown out there in order to explain why it’s so deadly. People get anxious, and they blame what they can.
And that’s it! It pretty much boils down to it’s really not something to panic about - and you shouldn’t handle other people’s bodily fluids or blood without proper equipment. Which- you really shouldn’t do that at anytime, anyplace.

and that’s not all kids
first of all, its worth noting that ebola infected monkeys have been in the U.S. for years. everything it contained safely to make sure nothing gets out into the public and nothing has. were pretty safe here.
the mortality rate is 9 out of 10.
Ebola Ziare is a Fillovirus, meaning it seeks to convert the cells into more virus. ebola targets the immune system similar to HIV, but ebola is much more explosive. vomit and bleeding are due to the virus converting cells in your body and your organs fail and shed their lining and liquefy.
the virus also tries to convert the cells in your brain which changes your personality drastically, sometimes to the point where you’re hardly yourself anymore. survivors have reported that they dont remember much and people who have know the deceased commented that they acted like autopilot zombies. the virus destroys the body and brain but not at the same time. in the case of “Charles Monet” (note, this isnt his real name, its changed to respect his identity) his body looked like that of a three day old cadaver inside, yet he walked himself into the hospital hours before the virus crashed his body. his brain was still fulfilling primitive tasks even though he was nearly dead. 
ebola has been appearing in micro breakouts since 1976 all over Africa but no one actually knows how its transmitted. some say its through contact with bodily fluids, but it can travel through simply touching the body of the deceased. still, you don’t have to panic about catching ebola. in the unfortunate case of Charles Monet, he bled out in the hospital.  when Doctor Shem Musoke tried to revive him, Monet vomited into the doctor’s eyes and mouth. a week later the doctor came down with symptoms and when tested, was found to be infected with Marburg’s disease (a related filovirus with a mortality rate of 1 out of 4.) The doctor recovered. its also worth mentioning that Monet vomited a lot on a plane the day before and none of the flight attendants who handled his vomit caught the disease or other passengers.
as for its origins, no one has ever found ebola out in nature, but many believe the creation of ebola was around Mt. Elgon. it could have originated in bats, insects, elephants, or anything, but it is hypothesized that it did not start in monkeys (though it definitely traveled that way.) it couldn’t have began in monkeys, because they die just as quickly as humans and an established virus like ebola could never survive for the 40 years it has, if its original host was so fragile, but here is a popular theory:
Marburgs, which spread through out Germany, is a sister virus to ebola. it found its way there through monkey traders who catered a ton of countries. the traders only gave visual inspections and often shipped sick monkeys to their destination. as for the ones who were visibly ill, those monkeys were released into the wild in the islands around Lake Victoria and when they were short on monkeys, they occasionally trapped monkeys from around those same areas. its likely that these monkeys of various breed and illness became the breeding ground that created Marburgs and they were recaptured and sent to Germany no one knows for sure, but its possible that ebola could have developed the same way. (a monkey catches it, it spreads to monkeys who are sick from other viruses, the virus mixes and becomes a super virus)
i’ve probably scared some people, but you should know that ebola isn’t airborne and the likely hood of you catching it, unless you in a heavily infected area, is slim.
if you want to know more about ebola from a credible source, i suggest the book, "The Hot Zone" by Richard Preston. its where im citing this from.
(also, to my followers, i know this bog has been domant for several months and your probably wondering why the first post i’ve made in a long time is ebola, but i’ve been fascinated by the virus since 8th grade. for that last month, i’ve been the going on and on about it to my friends, educating and re-informing, and a friend of mine directed me to this post because she thinks i need to get all these “ebola fun facts” out of my system, to people other than her. 
i know i haven’t done all the stuff i said i would, but things have gotten hectic and stressful and soul crushing and this was something to get my mind off stuff. sorry, i probably wont post much content after this either.)

WHY ARENT THERE ADULT-SIZED PLAYGROUNDS

LIKE EVERYTHING IS THE SAME AS A KIDS PLAYGROUND

BUT BIGGER

WHY DO WE NOT HAVE THOSE

theme parks. just. theme parks.

but u have to pay for theme parks

that’s the adult part

son of a bitch

ladies and gentlemen, behold

the St. Louis City Museum:

Playground for adults and children.

They even serve alcohol.

I know where we’re going guys

You don’t understand, i totally just lost my mind when this appeared on my dash.
City museum used to be part of F.I.R.S.T robotics championship in st. Louis and after the competition everyone would pile into busses and into this crazy mad house. Its insane, imagine 10,000 teens rampaging through here. If you think that big suspended arch tunnel looks sketchy, imagine how it felt crawling through there with twenty other people at the same time. And there is a TEN STORY slide. This isn’t the place for small children or people with claustrophobia. There are several tight tunnel ways and other craziness that will actually have you in fear of being trapped but it is so worth it.
BUT WAIT THERES MORE
Your thinking why is this called a museum when it clearly isn’t? It actually is. It is a “museum of the city.” All that stuff was built from recycled parts from st louis and the third floor holds an actual legitimate architectural museum of pieces of old buildings and features and there is also a full aquarium.
Its not just totally amazing and fun looking but its like part of st louis. Go there and you wont be disappointed.

Back on track (just kidding)

So im back home in California and robotics has ended.
So that means i can get back to razia’s shadow and that spg thing i started and never finished right?
Ha
Hahahaha
No
Unfortunately im swamped with all the other things i didnt have time for before, like school projects and various other things i have to catch up on.
It looks like my hiatus is extended to the end of school because i simply dont have enough time in the world.
Im a very busy person.
Being idle is unnatural for me.
I laugh at all the people who have senioritus!
Just kidding, i cry longingly to senioritus because i would be all over that if it weren’t for so many things riding on the completion of my activities.
I have a tendency to dig my self into holes i cant climb out of.

You do not understand how much I want to give up right now.

justme1panda:

My GPA is so bad and my grades are so bad and I’m going to fail pre cal after missing a week for championships. And I’m here for two weeks then I’m missing another week of school for ISEF. What is the point anymore

The whole point is people who qualify to ISEF get into MIT and do great research. I’m the fluke who doesn’t deserve to be there. 

i wouldn’t be so stressed about MIT. me and my friend were talking about it while we were walking around scholarship row at the competition. he says that the people who are accepted get in because of impression. sure, a good portfolio of the things you’ve done and a list of classes you have passed will get you noticed, but what happens is that they send an alumni or someone to do an interview with you. its the interview that decides if you get in or not. as long as you sound like you know what you are talking about and that you are genuinely dedicated to what you are studying, they will accept you.

justme1panda said: AHHH I'm from team 418 Purple Haze and we're in Curie. What about you?

OH MY GOOD GRACIOUS! im drive coach of team 4486 Blue Prints and the roster says that we are allainced with you for our first Qualification match (match 16) 

THIS IS SOO EXCITING!!!!!

So frustrated. There’s a chance I’ll get a full paid research internship to Trentino, Italy for the summer and I have to miss it because debate camp.

justme1panda:

When I saw Trentino, I was like ‘Is that in California??’. Then I realized the comma was BEFORE the Trentino, and I was like wait….this isn’t in the U.S. 

A part of me just wants OUT. Of my life, of knowing these people I know, of being where people know me. I just want to hide. Italy would be as far away as this little Texan girl could get. 

sometimes, getting out sounds like a sweet escape. i wanted out when i was a freshmen. i wanted a new start, an new image, and new life and a new future, so i changed schools, but it wasn’t as sweet as i thought it would be. i DID make friends, and in the end im happy with my decision, but it was hard. i was lucky to find people who accepted me, because there where a lot of people who didnt. it was almost to the point where i wondered if i should change back and go back to the meritocracy i had before. jumping out of my life could have ended very badly and in some aspects, it did. my NEW image somehow came off as know-it-all even though im not that smart. people came to expect a certain level of effort from me all the time and i was easily guilt tripped into joining clubs and competitions that i wanted no part of. i was volenTOLD to be part of the Rotary Model U.N and tried as hard as i could to get out. it became a huge brick on my already heavy workload. 

i dont know what Debate Camp is, but i assume it costs money to go. and i also assume you already paid for it. talk to your parents about trying to switch. see if you can get your money back. tell them how much this could influence your future and how valuable this chance is. how much good it will do. if you cant, then you obviously have to knuckle under and go to the camp, but if you can, you might be able to change your summer around.

i also know nothing about this internship. are your a senior? if your not, then maybe the offer will be there next year and you can go.

either way, i know how it feels to want to just hurry up and leave the house, move out, and never talk to your family again, but even when you do, you will probably find yourself coming back. it sound great, out there in the real world but its not. its hard. you will always need someones support. dont be too eager to just leave, or you’ll regret it

I have a confession.

justme1panda:

I have been bullied. And the worst of it was done by adults. I didn’t even think it was bullying until I finally told another adult and she told me that the bullying wasn’t acceptable. The thing is that I should have told the leading mentor sooner. But they already did their damage and I feel more worthless than ever. Words hurt. Actions hurt. Sometimes your snap judgments destroy people. 

i was bullied by an adult mentor from another team in the middle of regionals. (our team has a sworn silence to never talk about what exactly happened or which specific team it was, but it happened.) i was bullied again by someone else just yesterday. our school is in a business park and we wanted to use this lot so we could hold a rummage sale to raise money for a senior trip. this lot has never been used and has always been empty so whats the big deal, right? well im there watching the stuff (all alone) when my mom and sis decide to show up and this guy from one of the businesses comes up to them (who are looking around) and starts throwing a hissy fit about how we aren’t supposed to be here. apparently his business owns the lot and their complaining that we are here even though one of my teachers sent an email to all the business in the area asking them if it was okay to use the lot. i get in the middle of it and tell him that they have nothing to do with the sale and then he starts throwing a fit at me. it was after i successfully shooed him away that i reflected on the moment and really appreciated what a jerk he was. my mom and sister could have been random customers and he went to yell at them. who does that? and after he knew that i was the only one that had anything to do with it he continued to yell at me, a child. a grown man yelling at a child. how pathetic could a person be to target kids? 

but strangely enough, im thankful for my run in with the mentor during competition. i saw what pathetic was and watched my mentor back me up and tell him off. i saw what standing up against a person looked like; what being aggressive was. so when this guy approached me at the rummage sale i used what i learned and told him off.

in the end i dont feel bad. granted it sucked when it happened because they used their age to make me feel so little, but now im proud. im proud that i took action, and most importantly, i can walk away from this knowing that i am a better person then they are. that they are the lowest of the low and are not worth any more of my time.

yes, you should have told someone sooner, but you also need to learn how to deal with thing yourself. dont let them tell you what to do. if they insult you, then insult them back (i dont care if they are an adult, when they act like that then they are acting like a child.) call out their B.S. But, of coarse, you don’t HAVE to be aggressive. you can calmly tell them that they are acting un reasonable or immature or just tell them how you feel.

i know its scary. when my mentor encouraged me to go back to that other team and tell them whats what, i was terrified and begged him not to make me, but he had my back and gave me courage. he taught me how to fight.

focus your fear and turn it into energy. use it to fuel your courage, but if things turn sour, dont be ashamed to cry. make a scene and attrack attention. people will see what they are doing, and it will make your bully look bad.

I doodled the center piece of our table at breakfast at the Crowned Plaza Hotel. I was gone for a day and a half at the Rotary Model U.N which was pretty fun. Basically you are assigned a country and you research the background of it. Then your given resolutions that the U.N has drawn up to solve a crisis and you analyze it from the eyes of your country and decided if you agree or disagree. (Example: my country is too poor to be forced to pay this stuff) You propose amendments to the resolution and to the rest of the delegates and meet up with other countries with similar ideas in meetings called a “caucus.” You can also send noted to other countries. You team up to find a peaceful resolution that makes most, if not all parties happy. Me and my partner were assigned Spain and were part of caucus one, otherwise known as “america and it’s groupies”
Its sounds boring but you can mess around with it too. 
For example, we created a third party organization to assist countries that dont have the economy to creat things like strong Cyber Security, called the Secure World Assistance Grant (or SWAG) and the preamble for Caucus 3’s resolution to our Cyber Attack crisis (where people were trapped in elevators, trains, ect. Because of a shut down of power) included the acronym TRAPPED or The Rails Are Probably Powerless, Everyones Dead.
It was also fun that some teams took portraying their country so seriously. Like North Korea totally betraying their caucus just because they could.

So spring break ended which means so did my internship. It was a lot of fun but i don’t have a car so i didn’t really know what to do for my awkward hour long breaks besides go back to work. Instead i made a little Tony from Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared and i think he came out really cute. The red across his face and his hair took the longest amount of time. I tried three different things before deciding how to do his nose and (even though you cant tell) his head is HUGE. Covering the surface area of his head with hair was painstaking.
Anywho, i hope you enjoy
The probability of me making a Paige is possible but not likely. Just like my attempt at a Sora plush from Kingdom Hearts 2, the body details are a piece of cake, but the hair is a nightmare.

Robot practice in orange county.
Code orange had a big field set up in a warehouse so a couple near by teams came to practice.
It was fun and included:
War lords and super nurds, who are both practicing for the las vegas regional, and code orange and us (blue prints) who are qualified for st louis.
There was another team too but they didnt play (i think they were the king bots) and code orange had two decoys too. A drive base with a lawn chair that could be used to practice assists, and their shelled out bot from 2012’s rebound rumble that people stood behind and pushed to act as defense.
the practice was really helpful.
We got to play with and against each other and we got good at truss shots to human players and in bounding but we have some code issues to work out. Tomorrow
