Today’s top item in Book News: Ginny Weasley, the freckly, flame-haired girl who later marries Harry Potter, grows up to be a sports journalist, according to new writing from J.K. Rowling on the website Pottermore. (Login required.) The stories are Ginny’s dispatches from the 2014 Quidditch World Cup for the magical newspaper The Daily Prophet. “Not a single Quaffle thrown, not a single Snitch caught, but the 427th Quidditch World Cup is already mired in controversy,” she writes. “Magizoologists have congregated in the desert to contain the mayhem and Healers have attended more than 300 crowd members suffering from shock, broken bones and bites.”

Also today, Ian McEwan on having dinner with Salman Rushdie during the fatwa, and James Salter remembers Peter Matthiessen. Read more here.

Please reblog if you know anyone who might take party drugs.

Yo some more helpful tips from another EMT!

1) Its illegal for an EMT to report certain personal information to other non-medical professionals. This includes telling friends your address, whether or not you are HIV positive, and telling the cops about drug use. Thats right, EMTs and paramedics can’t tell the police if you took molly or even if you did illegal activity that’s dangerous to others, like drunk driving. We honestly don’t care if you shot up heroin - we just want to make sure you’re ok. 

2) Do some research on the drugs you’re interested in. There are a lot of websites that have extensive information on drugs, like Erowid, which not only tells you the effects (positive and negative) of the drug, but also the duration and the dose from threshold to heavy. 

3) Be careful with some drugs, like MDMA (ecstasy/molly), which is commonly found in a pressed pill form and can be mixed with a lot of other materials. If you’re thinking about taking molly at a party or rave, I suggest getting it from your (hopefully trusted) dealer beforehand. That way you’re getting it from a trusted source and can also check to see if that particular pill is on Ecstasy Data.

And LSD, while not a usual party drug, can sometimes actually be another similar hallucinogen, like the NBOMe series, which are active to the microgram like acid but is 4x more powerful on blotter paper, and taking this much will cause a bad trip. Acid has a slight metallic taste, or no taste at all, while NBOMe is very bitter. 

4) Many drugs (like stimulants, MDMA, and LSD on occasion) can cause hyperthermia, which is super dangerous if you’re in a place like a rave, surrounded by other hot bodies and dancing for hours without taking a drink. Remember to break for water if this is your situation to avoid this, and if you start to feel feverish and under the weather, cool down immediately. 

Be safe and enjoy!

Also look up all drug interactions before taking anything. Combining certain anti-depressants with certain drugs like ecstasy can cause serotonin syndrome, which can be fatal. 

How on earth did this find its way onto my dash?

Stop fucking around with heroin. Please. Too many people I know have already been victim to it.

Okay looks like i’m seriously going to have to MAKE IT WELL KNOWN ABOUT THESE BINDERS.

See these tags? They are the emblem of a binder company that sells very, VERY cheap binders. Why do I have a problem with this company? The material they choose to use to make binders out of.

That material is not stretchy or elasticated whatsoever. They are basically the same as an ACE bandage and caused me problems quite similar to said bandages. What problems you say?

  • Skin tears, rubbing, bruising, swelling etc.
  • Irritates skin and causes rashes and general soreness, pinches skin, etc.
  • Trouble breathing, constricting, unforgiving material.
  • Only for smaller cup sizes (small C MAX)

The longest i’ve been able to wear one is for two hours and I couldn’t breathe properly, I had rib bruising afterwards and my breasts were so sore that without support afterwards the ache was killer. I am only a large A cup.

This material is NOT binding material and not good for your skin elasticity either. It hurts, it pulls, it scratches, it’s painful. Please please PLEASE do not get these binders, they can do by the names of:

SHO/XX/FE/JJ/JJ’s/E.V.A/OZ/Whorl Weave/GL/SOHOEVA (bolded are the most common names)


Please remember a good quality binder is made of stretchy material, you are able to breathe properly and while they cost more, your body will thank you for it in the future! Good quality binders come from:

  1. Underworks (which I will forever recommend the 967)
  2. LesLoveBoat (good for zipper binders!)
  3. T-Kingdom (also good for zipper binders and different types)
  4. Mansculpture (hook and eyelet binders too)
  5. MangoProducts (another one I recommend!)


I’m not attacking you if you can’t afford a better quality binder but please do not use these for long term use, save your money and get a good quality binder. Dysphoria will only worsen if your body isn’t taken care of :C
