Hi, I'm Alex. I'm 22 and hail from Melbourne, Australia. I'm a
massive geek with my main passions being science-fiction, fantasy, history and space exploration.

My main fandoms at
the moment are: Marvel, Batlestar Galactica, Orphan Black, Orange is the New Black, Star Wars, Star Trek (show & movies). I also like many others which you'll see around on
my tumblr too.

I also adore cute things, pretty scenery and old things. This tumblr really is a mix
of all of that.

A transplanted heart does not respond to atropine
This is because atropine affects the vagus nerve (parasympathetic innervation of the heart), not the heart itself.
Since a transplanted heart is not connected to the recipient’s nerves, atropine will have limited or no effect on the donor heart. Neither will vagal stimulation like Valsalva maneuvre or carotid massage
Eventually however, there may be some regeneration of nervous innervation to the new heart; mostly sympathetic, but also parasympathetic nerves. In that case, atropine might work.
But the treatment of choice in hemodynamically significant bradycardia in heart recipients, is pacing (according to ACLS guidelines).


Found this hanging around on my wall, check it out guys.

Rejection

Um. So I’m probably one of the few folks who doesn’t think this is adorable. At all.

I think it’s fucking scary how this little boy keep pushing himself on her after she CLEARLY doesn’t want to be bothered with his ass.

And the adult behind the camera doesn’t intervene at all because it’s ‘cute.’

And how analogous it is to when grown ass men don’t take fucking no for an answer, no matter how much we push and shove and say no.

This is not cute. This is an absolute disregard of this little girl’s boundaries.

In the very bottom left gif you can see he’s smiling/laughing. Like this is some kind of game.

I would bet money that the person filming this is laughing and encouraging him.

This is how we teach boys not to respect women’s spaces.

She sure doesn’t look like she’s fucking laughing.

It’s impossible for me to not view it like that too…

Rape culture starts early

We praise baby boys for invading baby girls’ bodies and space. Girls learn from the onset that their body is designed to be invaded, and boys are the invaders. Why should this magically disappear when boys become men and girls become women? It doesn’t. After all those years of practice, it becomes simultaneously more violent and subtler. The violation of women’s bodies becomes so commonplace that hardly anyone bats an eye at it.

This little girl literally throws the boy from her yet he refuses to accept that his advances are unwanted. Boys never learn beyond this, but girls are quickly taught that even overt rejections will be ignored.

They are children. They don’t know any better. I bet when you were children this happened to you/ you did this. Honestly. Grow up

the issue isn’t that they’re children and don’t know any better, it’s the fact that the adult standing by doesn’t reprimand the boy at all. The proper thing to do would have been to take him aside, and tell him that no means no, and if she doesn’t want to be touched, then don’t touch her.  Because he “doesn’t know any better” he should be taught what is right and what is wrong, but that is not happening here.

This is fucking creepy.
