Some people might have wondered why I am not posting or reblogging since a while.
Well… I am first not feeling well, seasonal depression and so on, therefore not motivated enough to browse around this site. Next… I pretty much started to dislike browsing through my dashboard. There is so much shit on it right now, mostly very defensive, hateful stuff. It just seems to me people who had good intentions at first (social justice, my friends) have turned against it by 180 degrees and have started to use the same semantics as right winged conservatives they hate so much to shut people off.
I am really tired to read things like “more white kids should be bullied and hanged”, “killing isn’t bad when the people deserve it”, “you are not allowed to have your own opinions and if you do we will terrorize and bully you” and other medieval times worthy crap. As a victim of year long intensive bullying and sufferer of sociophobia this shit really makes me fucking angry and tumblr becomes just a totally unfriendly place to me.
Of course I could just unfollow those blogs or block the content, but really… I think it’s better for me to just leave tumblr for a while and maybe come back when the flame wars have ended. I am also part of the community since circa. 2010 (back then with my Visual kei images blog). Tumblr has changed very drastically since then. It’s not as exciting, new or enjoyable as it has been and especially the community became more vile. Even shitty narcistic snob artists on Devaintart can cope with criticism more than the people here.
So we all kinda just ACCEPT that swimming pools are kinda gross on a microscopic level, right? Well, prepare yourself for the mathematical proof of that gross-ness.
The E. coli in the pool didn’t necessarily come from a bowel movement, Hlavsa said — and this is why it’s important to actually obey the signs that virtually everyone ignores about showering before going into the pool.
“The average person has about .14 grams of feces on their rear end,” Hlavsa said. “If that rinses off into the water, the amount from one person might not be that much. But as more and more swimmers introduce it that much, it does become an issue.”
She’s actually done the math.
“Let’s imagine 1,000 kids go to a water park. They have as much as 10 grams of feces on their rear ends,” she said. “We are now talking about 10,000 grams or 10 kg. That translates to 24 pounds of poop in the water.”
So one important rule – never swallow the water from a swimming pool. “Basically, these pools are big bathtubs we all share together,” Hlavsa said.
24. Pounds. of Poop. in the Pool.
(Worst Dr. Seuss book title ever, btw).
Think I’ll stay home and run through the lawn sprinkler instead.
That’s why I am not going swimming in swimming pools since 4 years XD
