CPRWeird poll to have, huh?CPR3 years ago in Personal More Like This
There's an advert on UK television at the moment, sponsored by The British Heart Foundation, talking about chest compressions, and how people should do that if they haven't been trained in mouth-to-mouth.
The background research for the video was quite interesting:
A new poll conducted across the UK and involving 2,000 respondents showed nearly half were put off from performing CPR because of a lack of knowledge.
A fifth worried specifically about the thought of the kiss of life or about contracting an infectious disease.
Four in 10 people were worried about being sued if they did something wrong, even though the BHF argues no such case has ever succeeded in Britain.
"Thirty thousand people have a cardiac arrest in the UK every single year and half of those are witnessed, but in most cases no-one acts, no-one knows what to do, people panic."
This information got me thinking.
I had a basic First Aid course... over four years ago now. Chest compression CPR
Ahab's Crosshairs Crude TutorialI'm writing this from memory, so I apologize if it's not very good. Also, I made the gun in probably one of the most inconvenient ways you could do it, so it may be better to disregard this entirely.Ahab's Crosshairs Crude Tutorial3 years ago in Personal More Like This
First off, materials.
* One board, about 2 1/2 inches thick, around 10ish (estimate) inches tall by however long you want the gun
* One thick dowel, about 6 inches longer than you want the harpoon to be
* One functional pellet-gun scope
* A few short, thin dowels
* Two large bolts
* A ton of wood glue
* ALL the acrylic paint
* Finish spray
1. Sketch out the shape of the rifle onto the wood. I did this by scaling it up from the picture on the MSPA wiki. It took DAYS to get it how I wanted. You will have to cut off the handle.
2. Cut it out.
3. Sketch out the handle on one of the scraps, cut that out too. Attach trigger dowel with a hole and glue.
4. Drill holes where the handle attaches to the gun body. Use wood glue to glue in dowels, then "plug them in" to matching holes in

Somehow, this silly page has hit 9 million views!
Just to be absolutely clear, I do not think the views make me any better than anyone else. I mean, I'm sure some of those are from people who don't even like me. But I guess my point is that it's crazy to imagine that this page has been opened up that many times, and I can't help wondering where all these hits have come from. And I just feel so grateful that a select few people in those millions have come to be irreplaceable friends to me.
It's been a wild ride with all of you guys through all this time. To me this isn't just a page where I simply showcase my artwork or the cosplay photos my friends and I come up with. This site has opened up so many opportunities for me, and has introduced me to some of the most wonderful people I've met in my life.
It's been a journey, and my interactions with the people here have taught me more than I can express.

Interview with Dante Basco on CraveOnlineHere are the answers relevant to Avatar and Korra:Interview with Dante Basco on CraveOnline3 years ago in Personal More Like This
What’s going on with “The Legend of Korra?”
We just started the new season, I think third or fourth episode. I have a role in it and I’m always proud to be a part of the “Avatar” family. Everything is hush-hush with it always. I’d get yelled at for even talking about it but I’m excited. I love the new show. I think they did a great job and I can’t wait to see how the fans take to it.
Is that a great way to revisit a world and play different characters in it?
Yeah, totally. It’s one of those things to be a part of, like the Star Wars thing. Or Harry Potter, to be a part of something that was phenomenal in its own way, a world that someone creator or these guys created. No one was

the short version,
Korrasami is Confirmed!
from Michael Dantedimartino:
Now that Korra and Asami’s final moment is out in the world, it seems like an appropriate time to express how I feel about it. I didn’t want to say anything right away so the audience could experience the finale for themselves.
The main themes of the Avatar universe have always revolved around equality, justice, acceptance, tolerance, and balancing differing worldviews. In subtle and maybe not so subtle ways, Avatar and Legend of Korra have dealt with difficult subjects such as genocide, child abuse, deaths of loved ones, and post traumatic stress. I took it as a complement when Joanna Robinson of Vanity Fair called the show subversive. There were times even I was surprised we were able to delve into the really tough stuff on a children’s TV network. While the episode
Sexuality Polls?WARNING FOR THE RAMBLINGS OF A TIRED, ILL PERSON!Sexuality Polls?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So, you may wonder why I made the polls about sexuality.
From the age of 12 to 16, I was straight. I was always straight, and always going to be straight. I only dated guys, and that was the way it was stuck in my head.
Then at 16, things started changing. I was in a relationship, but I also found myself attracted to girls. In appearance, especially, I found females more appealing than males.
At around 18 or 19, my attraction to men started fading entirely, replaced purely by an interest in women.
At 20, I ended my straight relationship to be with Jenn. By this point, I only found women attractive.
Now I'm 24, and once again, I'm on the fence. I find both men and women attractive visually, but I'm not SEXUALLY attracted to any of them. The only person I honestly find sexually attractive is Jenn. She's female, so I suppose that labels me as a lesbian, as I am quite literally only attracted to females.
But what if, in another world, Jenn

Romano x Reader: Happiness comes from...You pouted, shirt starting to cling to your back, laying on the grass. You looked up at the sky, the last speck of light had disappeared from the sky and multiple stars were shimmering as they came into view. You sighed, rolling your head to look at the truck to see Lovino simply not caring, texting on his phone. He finally grabbed the pillows and blankets out of the open trunk. He threw them to the ground, not caring where they landed. Your pout increased. Lovino and you had been friends for what seamed like forever, you two were best friends, somehow along the way you had developed feelings for the pizza loving, hot-headed Italian. You had invited him to star gazing, so now you lay in a field out of town, him grumbling sensless, Italian curse words.Romano x Reader: Happiness comes from...2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Guide for SNK OCsOkay...so I'm not an expert in necessarily making original characters, but because of my heavy theatrical background, I have sat through HOURS AND HOURS of character development classes back in my theater days. I have been an actor, writer, and director, and I can assure you, character development is a HUGE thing you need to consider. This is especially true for making your original character.Guide for SNK OCs1 month ago in Personal More Like This
A question that often gets asked is:
"How to I make my OC interesting without them being a Mary-sue/Gary-Sue?"
I am going to take you step by step with each aspect to consider regarding SNK original characters.
Remember, this is taking place in Europe. Try to pick a European name that seems to make sense. Having a Russian or Turkish OC wouldn't be too far off the mark either. However, their language and/or customs would likely be lost since they are within the walls with Europeans. Think of Mikasa; she was asian, yes, but you didn't see her eating with chopsticks and saying "Konichiwa Eren-
