Child Safety ads from the 50ies! I would have made them more gory, if we coddle our kids they’ll just grow up into weak, frightened wussies instead of strong, emotionally damaged sociopaths! You need to look out for those damn piles of leaves!

Here’s a safety video from1962 as a bonus if you have the time to watch it. A bunch of kids in weird monkey masks decides to ride their bikes to the park, but do they make it?

I’ll add this to the list of things I will subject my potential future children to. If my potential future children survive my upbringing they will definitely be interesting people as adults.

If I could sew this is what I would sew.

GREAT idea, isn’t it? No? Anyone? Bueller?

Well… Sarah Burge, gangstername “Human Barbie” thought so. Is it just me or does the name “Human Barbie” sound a bit like the name for a potential serial killer?

From the article: “The 50-year old, whose comments come in the weeks ministers vowed to crack down on the sexualization of children, said her girl ‘squealed with delight’ when given the £6,000 gift”

I have something I’d like to put here about my first day of internship at the clinic, but I think writing about my first patients would probably in some way breach the confidentially law, even if I try to write around everything even remotely sensitive. :’P This is a general update about what it’s like though:

Working with kids doesn’t seem too bad at the moment, possibly because I’ve been able to play a lot of games with them instead of just testing. My mentor is pretty relaxed about evaluating the patient’s speech. With kids you can’t test them like you’d test an adult, they loose patience and get tired really quickly. Most of them are preschoolers, so you adapt the tests to be more playful. Sometimes they are too shy to say much at all, so we just pick out a box of toys and talk and play until they eventually respond.

The less fun part is getting up at 5:45 in the morning. When I was younger I was used to travel an hour to get to school, but since I moved I’ve been spoiled because I live so close to school. The internship is in a different town though. I go 8am – 4pm so I don’t have much energy left for the evenings.;P It’s more fun than I expected though so I think I’ll survive the next weeks.

Nic Cage only eats animals that have dignified sex.

He’s such a special little snowflake.

I have to take care of tiny children next week so I’m going out tonight with a friend to get some of that immature and irresponsible out of me.

1. I love IRL trolls. Here’s a memo that was sent to the Pope before his planned visit to Britain, suggesting that his holiness should launch his own condom brand and start an abortion clinic.

2. Lisa Kirkman, a supporter and activist for medical marijuana and legislation, is trying to get her son back after he was taken 2 years ago by CPS. Kirkman is a Canadian citizen and has been away from her son since he was sent with her boyfriend (who had paternal rights in Canada) to visit the US, where CPS supposedly took the kid because the the boyfriend’s paternal rights weren’t legit there. So if I’m understanding this correct, if I had a kid and I wanted him/her and a close friend or a sibling to go to a trip to Oregon without me, CPS has the right to place the kid in foster care since I’m so irresponsible…?

3. I’m just going to post the link here, in case anyone is sensitive to a bit of blood. I’m intruiged though; is this real or fake? If it’s real, is it a self-injury or is it an actual accident? In that case, ouch ouch… ouch. Click here to see the picture.
