    As a follow-up to my last post about Queen Anne’s Revenge, here is the man himself—the terrible Edward ‘Blackbeard’ Teach. I show him in close-up so you can see the slow-match fuses he used to weave into his whiskers and set alight before attacking a ship. You can find him in P is for Pirate, now available in bookstores—or drop me a line in the comments for an autographed copy. Pirate captains were elected by their crews and could be voted out. To keep his crew in line, Blackbeard constantly showed himself to be more fierce, more outrageous than anyone else on board.

    Hepatitis C (HCV) is a viral disease that affects the liver. It is four times more common than HIV & 170 million people around the world are infected with it. It is transmitted through blood-to-blood contact and can be contracted through medical and dental procedures, piercings, tattoos and acupuncture, if the instruments aren’t properly sterilised. HCV can also be sexually transmitted and pass from mother to child during pregnancy and birth. In its early stages, 2/3 of people don’t experience any symptoms and often don’t realise they have the virus until they have more serious…

    Even a small amount of alcohol has an effect on your body. When you drink, alcohol is absorbed into your bloodstream and distributed throughout your body. A tiny amount of alcohol exits your body in your urine and your breath. You absorb alcohol more slowly if you eat, especially if the food is high in fat. However, if you drink more than your body can process, you’ll get drunk. How quickly alcohol is metabolized depends on your size and gender, among other things. Alcohol consumption causes physical and emotional changes that can do great harm to your body. The long-term effects of alcohol…

    Depression. That is not a word I normally associate with myself.  Or, I should say, I don’t think about it much.  Which is rather interesting considering that I am taking an anti-anxiety / anti-depressant medication. But I initially sought out medication for anxiety.  And I can remember my doctor making the flippant remark that Paroxetine helps with depression too, but I didn’t think more about it beyond the “hmmm… okay,” phase. I was worried about the anxiety. And I take Paroxetine, in my mind, to help control my anxiety. Then, the gastrointestinal fireworks happened this past…

I did the days deeds and by 1 o’clock had fulfilled my duties and my idle hands awaited me.

    TW: alcoholism, drug use, hate crime Hi Taylor- A bit about my story- let’s keep it anonymous, even though people who know me will be able to piece together my identity. My father was 39 when I was born, my mother 38. I am my dad’s firstborn, my mother’s tenth. I didn’t find out until much later that my mother’s first husband had been murdered, my mother was the prime suspect, as she had plotted his death before. My parents were both serious alcoholics, but maintained a surface of normalcy ( think Mad Men). I do not remember ever not being terrified of my mother. Her rages, her…

Truth is they hit the nail on the head with the lyrics on this one (see below for the lyrics as I doubt you can decipher them out of the noise). When your using, anything is a reason to use. Tartar Control claim to be God-fearing Mormons from Salt Lake City who spread religion through the power of punk rock, and if you go to their website that really seems to be their thing.

    Foundation of Life.  Triangle, Geometry, Quantum Physics. I am aware of the terms of psychology, this awareness has been ages of indoctrination.  Tell me what the definition of Locus of Control”  is, all the while, distancing me from its form.  I know what locus of control means.  I know how to play it out.  I also know how to counsel others on how to achieve control, within their own lives. Causing “locus” to rear its beautiful head, in my life,  has become a decade long challenge.  “The dark seeks out, my name.”  The dark has always sought me/called…

Yes to infinity. Drugs and drinking gave me a way out of the misery that everything is momentary, fleeting, diminishing as soon as it starts.
