The results were published in Nature Neuroscience this weekend, and they’re pretty fascinating. Twenty-seven healthy adult volunteers spent multiple nights sleeping in a lab in Germany, where they eventually entered the REM (rapid eye movement) stage of sleep. About two minutes in, the researchers applied a weak 30-second electrical current directly to the frontal lobes of some of the patients. The others received a “sham current with no electricity.”

i’m seeing that self defense package thing and like it’s really a good idea but metal weapons and tasers are illegal in a LOT of places so i decided to make one that would pass school security or wouldn’t get you a ticket from an officer.. but i also wanted to offer something that isn’t always as violent or.. direct, i guess?

there are a lot of situations where brass knuckles or pepper spray won’t help or aren’t the way you want to go about it— in event of an emergency where you needed people’s attention, you feel like you’re being followed but you don’t want direct confrontation, you’re in a situation where people can’t see you but you still need help, etc, the alarm would work. it is also legal to carry on planes! so that way if you’re traveling, you’re not leaving home empty handed/defenseless; and it’s not anything anyone would recognize and try and grab away from you in event of an emergency. it’s got a convenient size that’ll work on a cellphone, too— which you’re more likely to have in your hands.

i specifically got plastic knuckles which are legal in more areas than metal ones and dog repellent grade pepper spray which is legal even where police grade is not— but obviously you should check with the legal status in your area if you have any concerns. these should be fine for most areas in america based on my research. 

i also included a variation in colours (black, black and blue) for people who don’t like pink or don’t feel comfortable carrying pink accessories but still want protection, which wasn’t available in the original set.

the other package going around is $23 w/o shipping, so I matched the price just to make sure that everyone who was planning to purchase that but couldn’t due to legal restrictions or personal setbacks (the taser in it has proven to be faulty and dangerous) could afford this one.

check it out!

the white house released this video on sexual assault that actually targets men, telling them not to rape, rather than telling women not to be raped. please watch this.

This is so fucking important, that I can’t even start to describe the happiness I get from finally seeing a major world government making a video that doesn’t tell women to not get raped, but instead tells men to not rape & to stop rape in the first place.

This right now, should be across Tumblr like a wildfire. It should be trending on Twitter and Facebook. This is good news. This is great news. This is, for once, a positive step towards educating people on a fucking huge scale about sexual assault.

This isn’t a solution. Rape culture isn’t gone. We can’t all just stand around and pat ourselves on the back saying, “We did it guys! We made the video! Job done.” - but for the first time in my memory, society is beginning to actively change its broken perspectives from the top level down. This is great. This is good news. This is a start.

This is fucking hope.
