aglynny:

True story - I busted my head open years ago and was rushed to the ER. There was one other woman sitting there with no discernible injury (I’m not saying she wasn’t injured, just that I couldn’t see) and as the nurses are rushing me in with my head profusely bleeding, you hear the woman say “I was here first, but sure, take her” and one of the nurses snapped back “Head injuries take priority!”

I got rushed straight through a very busy A&E once with a suspected ruptured appendix (fortunately it hadn’t ruptured but it did need taking out) and the looks I got from people who had been waiting hours were vile. I was a child and because I wasn’t showing trauma signs they all go mad. It’s crazy.

A Tibetan Monk blesses the deer that gather around him and someone snaps a picture. Upon viewing the picture they notice a rainbow had appeared.

potbelliedgeek:

So my mom is shopping in a supermarket, wearing a full hijab and jilbab (commonly misnamed as a burka) and the whole time she is there, this kid is staring at her. Won’t stop staring. Just looking with wide-eyed shock. The lil feller isn’t any older than four.

She doesn’t think much of it, she is used to far worse than just a few stares. Until the very end when the kid and his mom are behind her in the checkout, and he leans up and whispers loudly:

“I LOVE YOU BATMAN”
