The Bystander Effect - The Bystander Effect is a social phenomenon in which a person (or persons) are less likely to offer help to another person (or persons) when there are more people around who can also provide assistance. Many people believe that, when there is an emergency and lots of people are present, the people in need are more likely to get assistance. However, this is not the case. Rather, the more people there are who can help, the less likely each person is to offer help. Thus, when in a group, people are less likely to offer help than when they are alone.


I’ve experienced this firsthand on more than one occasion, both as the person who needed help and the person who saw someone need help.I learned that I keep a very clear head in emergencies, and despite my innate shyness/introversion I have no problem taking charge in such situations. Frankly, it surprised me more than anyone.

Paul McGann (the 8th Doctor) with the 9th and 10th Doctor’s sonic screwdriver up his nose.

If that will sonic away my sinus congestion, I’ll need one until allergy season is over.

So your pubes can be a main anime character too

now the carpet can match the drapes

Don’t be acting like you don’t want blue pubes

RAINBOW PUBES HERE I COME

I gave the blue Betty dye to my sister when she was getting married, for her “something blue”. Her husband said it was like going down on Cookie Monster.

She got a full wax job done on her honeymoon.

Lynched by my existence? Ouch. Likely.

Buried alive by meth addicts.  Sounds like I made it to Breaking Bad :D

Crushed by hugs. 

Buried alive by…living? O.o

Suffocated by living

So I'm not sure who actually cares about this, but...

sherlockedgallifreyanofasgard:

I’ve recently been trying to lose weight to get healthy. I stopped caring for a while after my dad died and went from 125 at age 17 to 173 earlier this year. I decided a month ago to get healthy and feel better, and as of today I’m down 12 pounds to 161. My target weight is about 130-135 (I’m 5’4)…

I know how you feel. My big weight gain happened when my son was hospitalized after a suicide attempt. I put on about 30 pounds in 2 months. I’ve been going to Weight Watchers for about a year. I start doing really well then my mother starts to sabotage me. I start to gain again and she lays in with nasty comments.

Let me know if I can help at all. Even if you just need to vent to someone who gets it.

I don’t know where all these notions that asexuals are trying to rule the world came from

personally, I’m aiming a bit smaller

I just want to rule the ENTIRE TRI-STATE AREA!

yeah well I’m going to SET FIRE TO THE SUN!

I am fairly certain that would require the use of a
SET-FIRE-TO-THE-SUN-INATOR

a vortisaur?

RAMSAY THE VORTISAUR!?

Someone artistic needs to draw a baby vortisaur in a little fedora now.

I DIDNT EVEN NOTICE THAT

Yeah they’ve been together a while now

I thought he was married with kids??

he was married to annie milner, divorced in ‘06 i think, and they have two boys, jake and joe…i thought him and Susannah broke up, but maybe they got together again.

I don’t think he and Annie actually divorced. At least that’s what she said on Twitter a few months ago.

If I don’t marry Paul McGann soon I will explode I swear.
The feelings I have for him are ridiculous. He’s so lovely and I’ve now met him four times and flirted with him *wahey* my mum told us off though *no mum I love you but no*
I want to marry Paul and his bristly face and receive bristly kisses on a daily basis. Sorry for being weird…

I am not sure his wife would like that.

the best pranks are the super harmless ones

like why would you pull someones pants down in public or like put them in danger or humiliate them when you can just baffle them by leaving tiny plastic camels all over their house or taping bill cosby’s face over every single face in  every picture in their house?

Last year the seniors had a mariachi band follow the principle for 3 hours

There’s a bonus feature on one of the Phineas and Ferb DVDs (I think the Christmas one) with a video of the cast and crew covering their boss’s entire office with post it notes, including the computer monitor, the chair, etc., while he was on vacation.
