Ideals

Blog for general things, my life, what I find cool, things I find inaccurate, questions no-one asked but I'm answering anyway, welcome. Cis white female sexuality undefined, judge my commentary.

Today I was reading one of those “10 medical signs you should not ignore” articles, that come up every now and then and I came across something that made me a little bit happier with the world. 

The usual ones were there, triggers for heart attack, asthma, etc, and the last one was Depression. Like that’s so important, because I’ve read a fair few of those, and none have ever mentioned that depression can be really harmful, and you know, that is an important change.

An interesting way to see who you’re sharing time with. The link slowly spins: xkcd.com/1335/

Changes based on daylight savings though, right now (July), the difference between Sydney and Munich is 8 hours not 9 hours, because Europe is on daylight savings and Australia isn’t. But in European winter and Australian Summer, it’s 10 hours.
Essentially the fluctuation is at most 2 hours though, because Munich is in the +1 time zone, and Sydney in the +10, and they never have daylight savings at the same time. Daylight saving adds an hour, which puts Munich as essentially +2, making the difference 8 hours. Or in European winter, Sydney becomes +11, where Munich is +1, a 10 hour difference. 
Essentially, southern hemisphere summer makes jetlag and phone calls a real pain in the ass

ok

so if a bisexual dates someone of another gender, they’re really straight and looking for attention

and if a bisexual dates someone of the same gender, they’re really gay and calling themself bi out of internalized homophobia

and if a bisexual is polyamorous, they’re the reason bisexuals “can’t be trusted”

and single bisexuals are predatory liars

what the fuck are we supposed to do

preach.

You know, I had never experienced this, then a while ago, I was at a party, it was a totally open group of people and then the conversation turned to bisexuals, suddenly everyone in the group was saying some pretty awful things, and it sorta stunned me. with comments like “stick to one gender, it’s good enough for the rest of us” and “they just want attention” and it was just a bit shocking, being bisexual and having several bisexual friends, that people can be so ignorant, like it’s as much a matter of choice, as being gay or lesbian or straight, it’s literally never a choice.

Ok so I’m in Munich with my Dad, and there is me, my Dad, my Dad’s girlfriend, and her kids and her mum in this apartment and it’s stressful as shit. Like I don’t want to be here. I’ve been here a week and I want to go home because everyone in this apartment is always fighting and I’m never alone.

Like I’m here for another 2 and and half weeks, and I just want to get on a plane today and go home to Sydney where I fight with my mum and I have friends and at least it’s not this unfamiliar environment. 

Like I remember why I have avoided coming here for 2 years now

It’s odd, I’m in Germany and watching a program about Australian outback truckers. It’s dubbed but you can still semi hear the base track, and like the contrast between the dubbing voices with no accents and the base track with accents is pretty funny.

I’ll reblog this in the morning, when Australia is actually awake, but…

I collaborated with some fellow political tragics on this info-thing about the Abbott government’s proposed changes to Medicare and the pharmaceutical benefits scheme, based on this study from the University of Sydney (PDF).

There’s also a single-image version, on my website.

Please reblog and share however you can! Even if you’re not Australian but you like the cute animals and maybe some of your followers are Australian, for example?
