    [Image Descriptions: A tweet from Alice Wong saying: "The delights of being disabled: I found out the BiPap machine I use at night and day (both models) are RECALLED (US only). Due to disintegrating foam inside!! That people...who need respiratory support...are breathing in." A retweet from Erik Ekins (QueerlyAutistic) saying: "The fact that people are finding this out through Twitter, about the machines that literally help/enable them to breathe."]

    SIGNAL BOOST for anyone who needs to see this:

    Here's a link to the recall page:

    ducktoothcollection

    Current as of June 14, 2021. Tweets are from June 15 and June 16, this reblog is on the 18th.

    Also, the tweet says "recalled (U.S. Only)" but the article says "recall notification (U.S. only) / field safety notice (International Markets)", so I'm guessing it's not that only machines sold in the U.S. have this problem, just that the terminology of the required warning varies country to country. This is probably worth looking at even if you're outside the U.S.

    locusimperium:

    A few years ago, when I was living in the housing co-op and looking for a quick cookie recipe, I came across a blog post for something called “Norwegian Christmas butter squares.” I’d never found anything like it before: it created rich, buttery and chewy cookies, like a vastly superior version of the holiday sugar cookies I’d eaten growing up. About a year ago I went looking for the recipe again, and failed to find it. The blog had been taken down, and it sent me into momentary panic. 

    Luckily, I remembered enough to find it on the Wayback Machine, and quickly copied it into a file that I’ve saved ever since. I probably make these cookies about once a month, and they last about five days around my voracious husband - they’re fantastic with a cup of bitter coffee or tea. I’m skeptical that there is something distinctively Norwegian about these cookies, but they do seem like the perfect thing to eat on a cold day. 

    Norwegian Christmas Butter Squares

    1 cup unsalted butter, softened

    1 egg 1 cup sugar 2 cups flour 1 tsp vanilla ½ tsp salt Turbinado/ Raw Sugar for dusting

    Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Chill a 9x13″ baking pan in the freezer. Do not grease the pan.

    Using a mixer, blend the butter, egg, sugar, and salt together until it is creamy.  Add the flour and vanilla and mix using your hands until the mixture holds together in large clumps. If it seems overly soft, add a little extra flour. 

    Using your hands, press the dough out onto the chilled and ungreased baking sheet until it is even and ¼ inch thick.  Dust the top of the cookies evenly with raw sugar.

    Bake at 400 degrees until the edges turn a golden brown, about 12-15 minutes. Remove from the oven. Let cool for about five minutes before cutting the cooked dough into squares. Remove the squares from the warm pan using a spatula.

    So I tried this recipe.

    And it is GREAT.

    It basically makes the platonic ideal of commercial sugar cookies, only in bar form. When I give them to people (which I do a lot, because this is one of those simple recipes where the results seem very impressive), I just tell them they’re sugar cookie bars.

    Life hack: add white chocolate chips and sea salt

    mxxnlit-witch

    I made these today for the equinox with sea salt caramel chips and they are simply amazing. Let’s see how long they last with six people in the house!

    Noting for later (as we need more butter for this, and probably won’t do a grocery shopping till the weekend).

    The OP version of this has become my go-to cookie for basically all things and I have a whole cohort of friends and colleagues who would murder each other to get them. Haven’t tried any add ons yet, since the base recipe is SO GOOD.

    This makes no sense

    maxknightley

    it literally could not be more straightforward

    thatguyfromthatwebsite

    It literally doesnt make sence, both have the same value, they're both $30

    sapper-in-the-wire

    I think the failure of many people to grasp an incredibly simple, barebones metaphor is demonstrating implicit bias very well

    This dude straight up stated the fucking answer and still can’t understand it, because he’s expecting the answer to be his own views lmao

    thatguyfromthatwebsite

    No im not expecting anything its just a badly frammed metaphor

    sapper-in-the-wire

    Bro you said the answer. Both have the same value despite different sizes. It’s simple. Basic. Elementary.

    thatguyfromthatwebsite

    But it never says that, it just asks you wich one is greater and the text ends there, wich leads you to thinking that one indeed has greater value then the other, and that the one with the greater value is the answear

    sapper-in-the-wire

    It asks you which one has the greater value and what is the answer to that question?

    thatguyfromthatwebsite

    Im not about to argue over a focken tit size metaphor

    sapper-in-the-wire

    Never underestimate the lack of reading comprehension on this site lmfao

    pruningthemindsgarden

    Yeah, it's not hard y'all. Hell I even have a thing for lactation and breast growth transformation kink, and I still get it. Also, and this can't be over-emphasized: the metaphor is accurate. As much as I may kink on those things, I also realize that there is no value difference between large and small breasts.

    Fuck I’m at a fencing tournament and literally a minute after I reblogged this my dad told me that he talked to the point people and I’m probably going to win a medal.

    BURN BAGEL BURN

    harukami

    I need to follow up to say I reblogged this last night, and this morning I got some of the best news of my life, like, a life dream come true news thing.

    Bagel what are your powers

    acabosetotal

    FUCK, I though it was just another lucky meme but LISTEN. Since a week ago I was waiting a phone call to confirm me if I got a job or not in my university. I reblogged this yesterday’s night “just for fun and because I don’t want any bagel to be mad with me”, and today’s afternoon, while I was losing my time as always, the professor I was supposed to work with called me and asked me for my personal information to start working with her.

    THE BAGEL POWERS ARE WAY TOO MUCH FOR THIS WORLD

    the-philosophers-bone

    I GOT A JOB THE DAY AFTER MY QUEUE POSTED THIS THE FIRST TIME AND I JUST REALIZED IT WHEN I SAW IT AGAIN HOLY GOD

    black-is-beautiful18

    I never knew there was a Black Music Month, which happens to be this month, so I thought why not share songs that I listen to. I’ll try my best to share one for every day of the month.

    June 1st: La Negra Tiene Tumbao by Celia Cruz. I’ve always seen this song as like an ode to Black women and I love it. I also love Celia Cruz lol.

    June 3rd: Chloe x Halle are my girls! I love their bond as sisters and friends. Their personalities are just so cute and positive. Let’s not forget their fierce harmonies and how talented they are. Don’t Make It Harder On Me is from their 2nd album Ungodly Hour. I love this particular performance cuz it kinda reminds me of Black girl groups from the 60s like The Supremes. They’re amazing.

    June 6th: Once again I am late but that is ok cuz YALL get two of my favorite songs today. The first one is I Want To Be Evil by Eartha Kitt. I can’t really explain why I like this song but it’s fun and I love to have fun.

    Current Mood: Crying While Watching Blue’s Clues Pride Song

    personinthepalace

    It’s sung to the tune of The Ants Go Marching One By One song!!!

    Another reason why Blues Clues and You is like the best reboot ever

    slytherinawayfromyou

    some highlights from the notes 💖

    metalheadsforblacklivesmatter

    Stop.

    Oh, my god. I’m already crying with asexuality included.

    Now you’re telling me other groups feel the same way?

    There’s legit tears down my face.

    metalheadsforblacklivesmatter

    The more you look at it the more you love it.

    The drag queen is holding a BLM sign.

    There’s a Hijabi on the all races float (and if you look closely at the flag, I think the owl is indigenous).

    One of the babas is disabled.

    They could have just stopped at including all the flags.

    But no. They said “I don’t care if they’re animals. I’m going to make it very clear we’re including all races and disabled people.”

    And it’s such small details, but they’re there.

    -fae

    metalheadsforblacklivesmatter

    Found 2 more hidden BLM flags.

    And I consider myself pretty versed in queer identities, but even I don’t know what some of these flags are.

    Which really shows that you’ve never had the opportunity to feel validated like this, and that makes me love it even more.

    -fae

    nicnacsnonsense

    I already made my own post about this as well, but it seems like a good idea to add the info on this post too, since it’s really taken off. There are (at least) 30 different flags plus assorted other representation. They include:

    Pride, Progress Pride, BLM Progress Pride, Lesbian, Gay Man

    Trans, Nonbinary — Dolphin wheelchair user, Top surgery beaver

    Gender Queer, Genderfluid, Intersex Demigender, Demiboy, Demigirl, Bisexual, Pansexual, Asexual, Demisexual, Gray Asexual, Aromantic — Blind bird

    Bigender, Genderflux, Omnisexual, Neutrois, Maverique, Pangender, Drag — llama(?) with prosthetic leg

    Trigender, Ally, Two-Spirit, and Gender Questioning — Hijabi owl and Native American owl

    trans-bloblobber

    I’m so fucking happy for the LGBTQ+ kids that have things like this to let them know they’re valid

    fushi7hesushi

    This much representation including stuff I’ve never fucking seen before

    and in a KIDS show, like that’s insane, people will finally grow up knowing it’s ok to exist

    Blues clues did their research, said LGBTQ+ rights and fucking meant it bruh

    I don’t think Winry gets enough credit as a genius. Like, automail would need her to understand engineering, robotics, anatomy, and particularly how nervous systems work, and she’s technically a surgeon. She was already a regular helper at Pinako’s shop when she was 11. At 15, she walked into a town full of top automail experts and impressed all but one of them with a rush-order arm she’d made. Then, she took over one person’s shop so thoroughly, her customers won’t even let someone else make the outer casings. On top of that, she read medical books as a child and not only understood them, but retained enough of it to successfully deliver a baby years later even though that had nothing to do with her preferred field. And she didn’t have any help from the Truth.

    Winry might not be an alchemist, but she’s a medical and engineering genius and somebody needs to tell her that right now.
