I have to unplug/replug and drag along THREE IV pumps whenever I want to so much as go to the bathroom. Ugh.

I love how this post is like “Oh, clean up some of the nastiest, hard to clean shit with coke!” but doesn’t mention “Hey, you actually ingest this stuff that can clean CORRODED CAR BATTERIES.”


Heyyy this is because when you put carbon dioxide to make the carbonated water, you get carbonic acid. Carbonic acid varies in how much the pH is, especially in the different coke products. Strong enough to dissolve rust but not steel or any of the metals mentioned here.

But here’s the thing, carbonic acid is not one of the 6 strong acids. You know what is one of those? Hydrocholric acid. You know where you naturally secrete hydrocholric acid? Your stomach. Hydrochloric acid is some nasty stuff and WILL eat away at a screw if allowed to soak long enough. If you ever got just drop of a diluted solution on your skin in chem lab, then you can see where that would happen very easily.

The stronger acid wins. Your tummy is fine when you drink coke. Your tummy makes acid strong enough to fuck that corroded battery up. It can handle a can of coke. Please don’t swallow a screw or something to test this tho, please.

thank you science side of tumblr <3

Seriously. You could probably do all of these with lemon juice (citric acid) or vinegar (ethanoic, or acetic, acid) just because acids work in pretty similar ways. Actually, when you see people recommending vinegar as a household cleaner? This is what it’s doing!

Also, as someone who has accidentally inhaled hydrochloric acid fumes, TRUST ME, THE CARBONIC ACID IS MUCH BETTER.

Every time I see a hysterical post on modern food I just kinda point and laugh

Because dude. Dude.  You know what you breathe in and out every fucking second to survive? Oxygen. An incredibly corrosive gas that is probably responsible for more deaths across the history of the planet than anything else. Not only that, it’s a biproduct of photosynthesis. You literally rely on plant excretions to survive

Do you know what most of your body is made up of? Water. Which, given enough time, will destroy anything.

That morning coffee you like? Well shit, caffeine - lifeblood to many - is actually an incredibly potent nerve toxin (If you’re an insect). Plants actually produce that shit as an insecticide.

That refreshing zing from citrus?  Acid.  That juicy smack of a tomato? Acid and cadmium.  That tart in an apple? Arsenic.  That seasoning you put all over your fish and chips? Acid strong enough to destroy seashells - life that has evolved to survive living in a salt-drenched sea.

Stop being a tit and drink your damned coke.

Had a gastroscopy this morning. Instead of spray-numbing your throat, they now give this amazing sedative that knocks you out for about 10 minutes. So much nicer.

On the other hand, I was so nauseated all night that I couldn’t sleep at all. Even with all the anti-emetics, so much as turning my head made me feel like I was gonna puke. It was not fun.

So this other nurse tried to start an IV and he had no technique whatsoever. No bedside manner. He even tossed the bloodied needles onto my nice blanket. D:

shiftymctwizz asked: Why are you upset about your dad finding out, if you don't mind my asking?

Because I posted this a couple weeks ago and then suddenly he calls the nurse’s station out of the blue while I’m here in the hospital. I didn’t tell him I was here and couldn’t figure out who did (I know now, however) so I was mostly caught off guard and it freaked me out.

My nurse just came into my room and told me that my father called. I would very much like to know who told my father that I am in the hospital and/or how he knew to call me here. I don’t imagine it was anyone here but still. I need to vent.

This is not cool and I’m kind of freaking out.
