Brain injury can result from various things:
head trauma from car accidents
stroke (when an artery in the brain ruptures)
anoxia (loss of oxygen supply to brain)
poisoning (binge drinking) 
A coma is when a patient cannot be roused. The body continues to exhibit reactions however. For example, in coma patients, reflexes such as gagging and pupil contraction retain present. This means that atleast the unconscious circuitry in the brain is working. 
A coma can lead to 4 things
Fast Recovery: exactly what it sounds like, the patient is conscious once more
Vegetative State: there is no responsiveness, although the patient can now exhibit complex reflexes such as yawning and eye movements. The patient might even smile, cry or frown with no obvious cause. Neurologists consider this behavior reflexive, as the spinal cord may generate involuntary movements 
Locked In Syndrome: a condition in which a patient is aware but cannot move or communicate verbally due to complete paralysis of nearly all voluntary muscles in the body except for the eyes
Brain death: total absence of brain stem reflexes. There is a flat EEG line and the patient can’t breathe. Neurons start to degenerate quickly and melt away. Currently this step is irreversible. Most countries identify brain death with death. 
A vegetative step can lead to two things
Minimally conscious state: characterized by some evidence of awareness of self and/or the environment. During some periods they can maintain control of their actions. They can respond to a verbal order and follow a mirror with their eye. Their behavior can be variable. Some days they will show signs of being aware and others days not at all. 
Permanent Vegetative State: implies lack of recovery and a prolonged vegetative state. In rare cases there will be conscious but uncommunicating patients. See below.

I got to see my boyfriend’s grandmother go through a minimally-conscious-sometimes-unresponsive state the day before she died. She could breathe mostly on her own, but she was unresponsive the whole day except for two minutes where she had the energy and awareness to hug her daughter *my boyfriends mother* and tell her not to cry because she’ll be okay. She died at 5AM on Christmas morning

had to shut a bitch down today

And that’s how public shootings and school shootings and shit like that happen. I’m not saying that this dude is not creepy as fuck, but this is not the way to handle this! He didn’t say anything mean (on purpose), and when you shut him down like that how the fuck do you think he’s going to react? He must know he’s somewhat creepy, but when a complete stranger that he adores tells him so vividly how creepy he is, that must wreck his world. I’m just saying I wouldn’t be surprised if he bought a gun (legally, but that’s a different issue) and went in to the store he knows you fucking work at. Just be nice to people fuck.

Alright, you know what? I don’t want to reblog this post. I want this post to die. And I have never once reblogged to reply to someone else’s comment on this post. But this one? This one I’m fucking gonna, because how. dare. you.

Are you seriously one of those slimy, inhuman grease traps of a human being who blame VICTIMS OF SHOOTINGS FOR THE FUCKING SHOOTINGS

Don’t you EVER come at me and try to tell me that I need to be responsible, personally responsible, for the mental satisfaction of the kind of monsters who would do something like that. Don’t you ever tell me I have to let myself be uncomfortable around people who LITERALLY STALK ME and put on a big smile and let them down gently because in your twisted little brain it is MY JOB TO KEEP THEM FROM KILLING PEOPLE

H O W   F U C K I N G   D A R E   Y O U

YOU are the problem. YOU are the kind of person who justifies that kind of senseless violence by saying WELL IF SHE HAD JUST GIVEN HIM A CHANCE

IF SHE HAD JUST FUCKED HIM

IF HE HAD JUST ‘GOTTEN SOME’

HE WOULDN’T HAVE RAPED HER/SHOT THEM/DONE IT

Are you fucking proud of that? Are you proud that that’s the tiny drop you choose to drop into society’s bucket? 

I don’t care if it ‘wrecked his world’ when he was called out on his socially unacceptable, disgusting behavior. I don’t caaaaaaaare

His actions are HIS actions. His actions are HIS fault

the next time I see a tragedy like the elliot rodger shooting on the news, I’m gonna think of all the vile comments from people online that say it all could have been avoided if the people he threatened and menaced would just relinquish their bodies and their comfort and their personal space for him, and I’m gonna  s e e   y o u r   f a c e  and I hope you fucking know it.

Don’t you ever talk to me. I am sick to my stomach over your fucking bullshit.

So much venom in such an appropriate response

This now pretty much makes this sort of misrepresentation at least 10 times worse since this is coming from somewhere where you can experience wildlife.

Definitely not a wolf at all.

This is DEFINITELY a WOLF because it is MY wolf. I got it from a BREEDER in CANADA and I have PAPERS that say it is 100% WOLF! MOM was 49% WOLF and DAD was 51% WOLF so my WOLF is 100% WOLF. You guys are so STUPID. I AM the OWNER so I know BEST.

What a pretty husky

If lightening is close enough to you that you feel your hair standing up, you’re probably already fucked. 

I’m gonna add my own useful thing here: Women often experience back and jaw pain while having a stroke, instead of the left side pain/numbness in males

This is not how you transport pigs. They’re excellent jumpers for their weight and structure, and it’s a fucking miracle that pig didn’t break its back or neck upon landing

Type in “Pit Bull” on Tumblr search and I don’t find a single dog that is actually a Pit Bull.
So, here are some quick tips to help the world of Tumblr know what the hell breed of dog you don’t own.
Quick points to help:
-If your dog is “blue”/”blue nose”, it is most likely NOT a Pit Bull
-If your dog is over 65lbs, it is most likely NOT a Pit Bull
-If your dog is “Razorsedge”, “Gotti”, “Gator Mouth”, it is NOT a Pit Bull
-If your dog is ABKC or AKC registered, it is NOT a Pit Bull
-If your dog is UKC registered, it is most likely NOT a Pit Bull (despite what the papers may say)
-If you adopted your dog from a shelter, it is most likely NOT a Pit Bull
-If you bought your dog off Craigslist, it is most likely NOT a Pit Bull
-If you ‘rescued’ your dog off the street, it is most likely NOT a Pit Bull

Over 90% of dogs claimed to be “Pit Bulls” are NOT in fact Pit Bulls. No matter what your shelter says, what your ‘papers’ say, what your backyard breeder says, what your family says, what your friends say. Learn the breed, because I doubt you own a Pit Bull.
If your dog does not meet the following criteria, do not call it a “Pit Bull”:
-AADR/ADBA/APDR/Sporting Dog registered or registered under a similar registry
-Matches this standard http://www.adbadog.com/uploads/conformation%20_%20weightpull%20pic/2008%20conformationBreakdwn.pdf
-Is working bred, and you know that for a fact
-High drive
-You have the dog’s pedigree, know how to read it, and it does not trace back to any American Staffordshire Terrier
-The pedigree traces back to fighting dogs (yeah, I said it. If there aren’t fighting dogs in your pedigree, you don’t own a Pit Bull)

Honestly, unless you purchsed your dog DIRECTLY from an APBT breeder who exclusively breeds working stock with pedigrees on hand and ADBA (or the like) registered dogs, then by christ, DON’T CALL YOUR MUTT A PIT BULL.

What is your dog if it isn’t a Pit Bull?
Possibly a Staffordshire Bull Terrier, maybe an American Staffordshire Terrier, could be an American Bulldog, quite likely an American Bully, or probably just a bull-breed mix.
Above are a couple sets of pictures, side-by-side examples, of breeds frequently (and improperly) labeled as “Pit Bulls”, along with the only REAL “Pit Bull” (the American Pit Bull Terrier).

Questions or comments, feel free to ask. After many years with the TRUE Pit Bull breed, I’m more than qualified and happy to help

I agree with part of this but the part about meeting ADBA/AADR/etc standards is bull shit. The APBT is a WORKING DOG not a SHOW DOG. If you have a dog bred for show I don’t care what standard it fits, calling it an American Pit Bull Terrier is a disgrace to the breed. The APBT is not made to be bred for looks.

Also, there are gamedogs with AmStaffs back in their pedigree several generations, and they’re more APBT than any “well bred” ADBA showdog will ever be.

An old dogman saying: “It’s not how the dog is bred, it’s WHO BRED IT and WHY!”

A++++++++ post

that first pit though wowWOW

Friendly reminder to the papers-thumping people with wolfdogs and APBT’s especially, my friend had her vet sign papers that pedigreed her husky as a chihuahua. Papers don’t mean shit

White Tigers - On the Verge of Extinction

White tigers are extremely rare, so much so that they are the only type of tiger that are more present in captivity than in the wild. SLC45A2 is the gene responsible for their unique pigment. The trait that carries this gene out is autosomal recessive, so two white…
