I love how Linda and Sam are legitimately terrified of that while Kevin and Dean look extremely let down that Buzz Aldrin had made a demon deal.

Up until this moment I thought Crowley was talking about Buzz Lightyear.

Buzz Lightyear.

I THOUGHT HE MEANT BUZZ LIGHTYEAR TOO OMG

please tell me you know who Buzz Aldrin is

I don’t know whether to laugh or cry rn

fun facts!

  • ADD and ADHD are the same disorder, Attention Deficit Disorder was officially renamed Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder in 1994. Many people use ADD to refer to Type One presented here, and ADHD to refer to Type Two, but they are the same core disorder.
  • In many cases where ADHD carries into adulthood, it’s a genetic issue [My grandfather, mother, siblings, and I have all been diagnosed with ADHD], though this does not always occur.

hello yes this is me

more fun facts!

  • there are a lot of talks about how ADHD is overdiagnosed, and that may be true for boys, but for girls ADHD is severely underdiagnosed.
  • older studies mostly looked at hyperactive boys and that’s the perception we have of ADHD. because of this many girls will go undiagnosed until adulthood.
  • most girls/women who have ADHD are inattentive type. they tend to be introverted, disorganized and daydreamers. 
  • girls will internalize these as personal failings and teenage girls have a much higher rate of suicide and self harm because of it
  • ADHD is often comorbid with anxiety and depression, both of which are caused by the failings from having ADHD
  • depression can present itself differently in people with ADHD. it’s more of a discouragement from constantly failing, but it can be just as debilitating.

And another thing!

  • ADHD is usually perceived as a lack of focus… however, individuals with ADHD have a tendency to "hyperfocus" on activities that their brains find stimulating
  • Sometimes this hyperfocusing behavior lasts for extended periods of time, and so the person may require some kind of system to help them "snap out of it" if it’s causing them to spend too much time on any one activity, or if they are neglecting other tasks
  • Hyperfocus can be used to one’s advantage-with the right tools

And so…

“People who think ADD means having a short attention span misunderstand what ADD is.

A better way to look at it is that people with ADD have a disregulated attention system.”

-Kathleen Nadeau, Ph.D.

Q: [In The Gone Fishin’ Job] why was it Hardison who stops them from getting on the train, when it was Eliot who’d sussed out the bomb earlier on and knew the militia would be using it very soon? It seems like Eliot should have been the one to make them go back rather than having Hardison need to convince him.

A: Eliot’s priority was to get Hardison out of there, whether he’d admit it or not. Hardison’s decision to go back probably did more to cement their friendship than anything else in the last two years. Although, again, neither would admit it. - John Rogers x

Long before he told him, Eliot knew Hardison was smarter than any of them. He knew Hardison could do almost anything he wanted to if he put his mind to it.

The reason Eliot’s always angry at Hardison when he tries to do things other than hacking is not because he doesn’t think Hardison can do them; it’s because he’s worried sick that Hardison will get himself in trouble for using his heart more than his brain.

Which is funny considering that in The Gone Fishing Job he would’ve put loads of people in danger rather than risk Hardison’s life. Another thing Eliot would never admit is that they are rubbing off on each other.

"Women are the niggers of gender," the email said. "If you killed yourself, I wouldn’t even fuck the corpse."

I blinked at my phone, fighting simultaneous urges to hurl my phone across the room in anger and cry. Later that day, someone texted me my address — telling me they’d “See me when I least expected it.”

I haven’t been out to my car at night by myself since January 2nd.

My name is Brianna Wu. I lead a development studio that makes games. Sometimes, I write about issues in the games industry that relate to the equality of women. My reward is that I regularly have men threatening to rape and commit acts of violence against me.

This is not good. This is not even remotely okay. This is awful.

While toy libraries target younger children, libraries that offer video games draw teens. A librarian at the Houston Public Library tells NPR that offering game consoles and iPads “results in a 15% to 20% increase in the circulation of books.” The games themselves also seem to help struggling readers, with some reading text in video game format “that was up to eight grades above their reading level,” says Constance Steinkuehler, an associate professor at the University of Wisconsin.
Having gaming available at libraries has other advantages as well. It gives lower-income youth the chance to play games they may not be able to afford; offers teenagers a safe place; and helps teens understand that the library is a place where they can belong.
