An ovarian cyst, which measured over 30cm in length, removed from a 19 year old female patient during a laparotomy. 




And here I thought the photo’s of the 8kg one that came out of a 23 y/o PT was big.
All I can say is:  Damn.


Holy SHIT.

Rewind

Take shorter steps and be conscious to keep them consistent in end width. Moving and shooting puts more on foot dexterity and core strength as opposed to trying to get into a three-gun stance every time. The forward or diagonal progress will make up for much of the stance loss if you drive the gun and use your core.Getting where you want to go while moving and shooting is important, but ultimately accelerating the short steps works better than taking strides.Awesome .gif, btw :D

"There’s so much beauty in a storm" 

I wonder if this is how the Yellowstone volcano will look then?

I would risk death to see that, then.

Depends on how she goes, but more than likely any displays like this will be hard to photograph as most people close enough will have already been killed by blast effect or pyroclastic flows if/when Yellowstone goes.

Still beautiful.

Hearing Assessment - Rinne and Weber Testing
use a 512 Hz tuning fork for both assessments 
Rinne Test
place tuning fork near the ear, and then on mastoid process
ask where it is heard louder?
normal = air > bone, conductive defect = bone > air 
Weber Test
placement of the tuning fork on top of the head, equi-distant from both ears, ask the patient where the sound is heard and is there any difference between sides
Normal = heard equally in both ears 
Conductive = heard best on the affected side
Sensorineural = heard best on the unaffected side


# of times I’ve actually used this in practice: 0.Still useful info.

Definitely was expecting a dirtier gif than that.

Uromastyx likes her belly rubbed

this is a fucking lizard getting her belly rubbed if you don’t think that’s the cutest shit then get out of my blog

LOOK AT ITS LIL ARMS FLAPPING AWWWWWWWW

This animal is not happy! ): This is a panic/defence mechanism, this is probably really freaking the poor thing out.  i’ve seen multiple reblogs of this post informing people of that, so I thought I’d let you know.

This is a Uromastyx, their defence mechanism is to INFLATE their bodies and move them as if they were “belly dancing” as they release air through their mouths letting a “haaaaaaaaaaaah” kind of sound until you leave them alone. If you don’t they’ll HIT you with their spiky tail.

This Uromastyx is exposing its belly on their own will, what it’s doing first is smell the hand to see if it’s someone they know. Since it is (remember the belly is the most vulnerable part of their body) and knows the person won’t harm them, it exposes the belly for the rubs.

And I talk from experience, I have an Uromastyx Acanthinura. It took me forever to get mine to trust me enough to allow me pet him and let me pick him up (and then teach him that my mum (he used to react aggressively towards her presence just by smelling her hand) that my mum was to be trusted).

TDLR; the Uromastyx in the gif trusts their owner and allows the owner to rub the belly, that isn’t how Uromastyx defend themselves

I get so happy when people with actual facts, knowledge, and experience explain things to those who do more talking than understanding.

I’m so fucking elated that this lizard IS actually enjoying tummy tickles. I’ve gone my entire life being sad because people kept saying this was a discomfort display. I’m so happy that the lizard is happy. I’m so happy.

The only animals who expose their softest, most vulnerable parts as a threat display/defense mechanism while also basically immobilizing themselves are usually poisonous animals or close mimics of poisonous animals, and Uromastyx is neither.

Usually such a display is also colorful.

But yeah how fucking cute is it that a little lizard will sniff your hand to make sure you’re the right giant

The idea that reptiles are dumb and emotionless is far too ingrained even among hobbyists and scientific professionals.

We always suspected that the Fed govt was killing cattle and burying them…which is why they tased and beat the people who tried to stop their convoy to investigate. Now, the truth is coming out. This pic of a grave from Assembly woman Michelle Fiore. BLM’s Daniel love and his people will be going to jail -Guerilla Media Network

For those unaware, these are photos of Cliven Bundy’s cows killed by the Bureau of Land Management in Nevada. 

Fucking figures

One day it’ll be us in those graves instead of the cattle…
