As you certainly know by now, in “The Hunger Games,” Katniss Everdeen is a teenage girl living in a dystopian far-future America where children from slave communities are forced to slaughter one another on television for the amusement of the wealthy. Katniss is moody, rebellious, deeply committed to protecting her mother and baby sister, and can incidentally shoot a man’s eye out through his windpipe. Right now, millions of nice young ladies all over the world want to be her. This should probably worry Rick Santorum more than it seems to.
But don’t skate through your torn cartilage, that’s just stupid and means you will need surgery…
If they took a poll about the Second Coming, Brighton would probably vote against that too – The Sun, 1988

This film is going to kill me, I can tell. I think it’s going to be worse than reading the books…
TEN DAYS. I HAVE TEN DAYS UNTIL I SEE THIS FILM AND IT KILLS ME. I HAVE TEN DAYS TO LIVE.
So I hit my head pretty good at practice on Saturday and I think I got a slight concussion… Do you think I should buy a new helmet??
It’s probably not nessecary. When helmets say things like “single impact rated”, they’re talking about mountain-biking-level impacts, BMX, that sort of thing. Roller derby really doesn’t come close to those kinds of speeds and impacts. Generally, it takes about five derby-level impacts to cumulatively reach the level that you need to replace your helmet (like me, right now. I recently had my 7th blow to the head and I’m replacing mine now).
However, if you’ve got a matt/rubber finish helmet and you’ve put stickers on it, that will weaken the plastic, so replace one like that after only two or three hits!
If you play/are a fan of/post things about roller derby, reblog this.

Except you can’t show a topless woman on TV – and you can’t defibrillate a woman in a bra. So victims of heart attacks on TV are *always* male. Did you know that a woman having a heart attack is more likely to have back or jaw pain than chest or left arm pain? I didn’t – because I’ve never seen a woman having a heart attack. I’ve been trained in CPR and Advanced First Aid by the Red Cross over 15 times in my life, the videos and booklets always have a guy and say the same thing about clutching his chest and/or bicep.
And people laugh when I tell them women are still invisible in this world.
Things I did not know, but should.
They put up some awesome billboards in austin a few months ago showing the signs of a heart attack that women will feel. And I know they were effective because I was in the car when mando saw the billboard and said “Man I had no idea women had different symptoms for heart attacks!”
Way to go city of mine 🙂
Even better? A woman having all the “classic” (read: male) symptoms of heart attack is more than twice as likely to be sent home from the ER than to be checked out, EKGed, and examined.
Because we’re just hormone-addled hysterics. 🙁
i do not endorse feministing but factual quote.
Let’s talk let’s count all the times that my grandma was having mini heart attacks but they sent her home with a diagnosis of severe acid reflux tho… Let’s count em… three. And this was only discovered after the big kahuna heart attack came.
It’s so aggravating especially in my experience, with what i know about how women in my culture are raised, we tend to be able to tolerate far more pain than men because we are taught to grin and bear it. So they can miss me with the hormonal hysterics BS. This bs is why I am talking to the women in my family about advocating for themselves, and advocating for them until they can for themselves.
REBLOGGED FOR LOVE AND JUSTICE
woah I had no fucking idea
reblogging partly because of the feminism, partly because the medical information is so incredibly important that everyone needs to know the difference between the symptoms of male and female heart attacks
Reblogging because of facts, and because it makes me feel a bit sick that the media’s aversion to boobs could be killing women. Nice. Thanks, TV executives. Thanks a lot.

You’ve probably seen it before. I don’t care. I love it!
This is still the greatest hit I’ve ever seen, and not only that, it’s brilliant to watch Beyonslay just skating in a pack – anyone who says big girls can’t juke and jump with the rest of them can watch this, and then bite me 😀
I also enjoy the fact that the video is titled:
“Rice Rocket takes a ride on Beyonslay”
