Just so everyone is aware, there is a bunch of misleading info being spread around re: ALS research - the “27%” figure is based on previous years’ annual funding; furthermore, the remainder goes to improving the quality of life of those suffering from ALS. Given that the annual funding is approximately 16M, that’s just over 4M spent on decreasing their suffering. It isn’t greed, it’s a lack of money.”

Shut up already.

The ALS Association has a 4-star rating from Charity Watchdog. 

And the next time you start to complain about a charity either a) working on multiple fronts (because that’s what ALSA does—both seeking a cure and helping people suffering now) or b) daring to have administration expenses—let’s see how long you can last, much less tackle a cause, without printer paper and an internet connection. 

As someone who has watched a family member die from a neuro-degenerative disease; funding to develop better wheelchairs and bedsore creams is *just* as important as funding research to cure the disease itself…

A friend of mine posted an update from one of HER friends to FB earlier.  Her dad has ALS.  The ALS foundation came out to see if they could put in a ramp for his wheelchair, but they couldn’t afford it because of the kind of ramp he needed for the kind of house they had.

This week they called back and said hey, the thing is, we suddenly have a bunch of money, so we’re coming out to build that ramp.  And they did.  She posted pics.

So if you feel like bitching about the ice bucket challenge…reconsider.

I remember all the Doctor Who fanfics I used to read where Rose often got badly stereotyped as a damsel in distress whom the Doctor had to swoop in and save and smooch but the way I remember Doctor Who 90% of their relationship was the Doctor just setting Rose loose on people who had done something to offend them and sitting back giggling in the corner as she shouted

A bunch of hopeless jerks said this baby was as good as dead. That makes this even better. <— Click the link for full article. :)

This is Biscuits. The little baby was found on the ground by someone just walking by on the sidewalk. Biscuits is a southern flying squirrel was half-dead, baking in the Florida sun. The man took her in immediately and began rehabilitating her. He was told by others that he didn’t have enough experience to save her and that she would die. As it turns out… they were all wrong. His love and devotion to this little squirrel saved her. Her recovery is one of the cutest things ever.

GUYS. My most amazing friend Kelly started a blog basically about all the weird things she’s found writing her dissertation on 19th c. morticians (officially called: “Men of Sorrow, Markets of Grief: A History of the American Funeral Industry, 1780-1930.”) She’s just getting started, but please give her a warm welcome to Tumblr! 

AAaaaa Kelly is amazing and this blog is probably going to be amazing!  If you love history- especially the weird, particular tidbits of history that make it so rich and oddly relatable- you should definitely check this out.
