“There are two questions a man must ask himself: The first is Where am I going? and the second is Who will go with me? If you ever get these questions in the wrong order you are in trouble.” — Sam Keen (via wordsnquotes)

A Pythagorean cup looks like a normal drinking cup, except that the bowl has a central column in it. It was supposedly invented by Pythagoras of Samos (yes, that one). It allows the user to fill the cup with wine up to a certain level. If the user fills only to that level, the imbiber may enjoy a drink in peace. If, however, the user gets greedy, the cup dumps all the wine into the unfortunate victim’s lap.

Pythagoras sounds like a real asshole.

“I love that sweet smell of decay that surrounds me in forests and woods. A kind of mulchy, deep, rich rot that has no connotation of death or ending, but rather of life and age. A sense of perpetual destruction and rebirth.” — (via wadulisiwoman)

no but imagine if you drank too much at a bar and then passes out on the floor and no-one could find your pulse so hours later you woke up in the ER or worse a morgue

Dude fake murders. Frame people. Scare the shit out of everyone. Pretend to be dead.

fail gym because you dont have a pulse for them to measure

CPR class: “can i have a volunteer?”
Halloween…be a zombie. Without a pulse. Hell yes.

… How could you possibly not have a pulse if blood were pulsing through your veins? I’m not a doctor but I think that has to be happening for you to live.

It’s because the blood flows continuously instead of in bursts.

It is called a ventricular assist device (VAD). It is used to replace the function of a failing heart  or for short term use, typically for patients recovering from heart attacks or heart surgery.
