Patient Kills Case Worker, Shoots Doctor Who Then Fires Back

To my Tumblr family and friends,

I know this doctor and nurse. They treated my brother. Dr. Silverman insisted that my brother have more time and was the one who finally diagnosed my brother and treated him effectively. Theresa was the nurse that not only cared for my brother but was one of my teachers while I was in nursing school.

These were people who worked in the extremely broken and underfunded mental health system. They work in a system that tells medical staff that patients can abuse you, threaten you, harm you, and we are to politely nod and work in pairs. They work in a system that doesn’t tell you that it’s a good idea to have a police escort for violent patients. They are medical professionals who are told we can be and will be abused and this is “typical” behavior. This is a broken system. And today, people died because of it. Can we protect everyone and stop every violent act? No, we can’t. But this man had a history of violence, a history of aggression. And because we can’t treat effectively and mental health is always put on the back burner, we will never know if we could have helped this patient.

Please keep these brave medical professionals in your thoughts and prayers.

My dad would tell me that when we were little and people would say to him “wow, four daughters, that’s a lot of weddings to pay for” (because traditionally the bride’s family would pay for the wedding), my dad would respond with “well, we’re hoping at least one of them will be gay so we can split the cost with the other bride’s family”
He said people never knew how to respond

Because of the weight of the ends of the forks, and how they’re distributed behind the penny (closer to the glass), the center of gravity of the whole system is actually shifted quite significantly. If I’m right, it would actually have to be right where the penny meets the glass. This mean, in a sense, all the “weight” of the system of the forks and penny is resting right on that point, rather than out in the air, so if you balance it, it’ll be stable on the glass.
SCIENCE.


…….Close enough

The difference between Science and Engineering.

I’m waiting for the can of WD40 to show up for engineering.
