I’ve received over 20 fan mail in an hour with the title “Check This Out” followed by a TinyURL link. When clicked on the link, you get a “Tumblr” login page saying your session has expired.

I’m working on applying for an industrial design program at a college. My focus is on creating tools that can help assist disabled folks by increasing ease of access to…life. So what I’m looking to find out is whether folks have thought “If only ____ existed…” and what that ____ was, or what you were trying to do when you thought that. OR the things you consistently have trouble doing in the world, where some kind of object could assist in the process.
Also! Please boost if you can?
boosting myself because i think i posted it at an awkward time
DO NOT DRINK, BATHE WITH, LAUNDER OR EVEN BOIL YOUR WATER.
THERE HAS BEEN A CHEMICAL LEAK. AREA HAS BEEN DECLARED A FEDERAL EMERGENCY.
- WATER IS TOXIC IN WEST VIRIGINIA DO NOT USE IT. AT ALL.
I know I’m not American but I know some of my followers are. I just wanted to give you a heads up. Please let your loved ones in the area know.

I was expecting this to be fake, but it’s real- water for about 300,000 in West Virginia is unusable.
If you’re in West Virginia, be sure you have plenty of bottled water. Even if you aren’t, spread this around.
Also, they’re telling you it’s safe to flush your toilet with this water, but you should be more cautious. The chemical has a reasonably high vapor pressure (about a fifth of the vapor pressure of alcohol.) [Source]
This means it has significant evaporation at room temperature, and this chemical will cause difficulty breathing as it permeates the air. It’s obviously not economically feasible to flush your toilet with bottled water, so cover your toilet bowl with cellophane while it’s not in use.
It will not evaporate at a ridiculous rate; its vapor pressure is about 1.2mmHg, which isn’t anything too crazy. But you should not allow it time to evaporate. Cover any open pools of tap water inside your house. You need not cover anything outside.
If you’ve had uncovered pools for a while, you may want to consider major ventilation of your house, however, this is not necessarily economically feasible given the temperature and cost of heating. But be aware of respiratory symptoms.
Stop reblogging the following ***incorrect image***, because it is literally putting people’s lives as risk:
The above is the number for the Baltimore Crises Intervention Center. They cannot help homeless people. They help people who are having depressed or suicidal thoughts. They are currently being overwhelmed with thousands of calls from people they cannot help, blocking out calls from mentally distressed people who desperately do need their assistance. If you have incorrectly reblogged this information, please take responsibility and post a correction.
Even if you haven’t incorrectly reblogged, please consider signal boosting this anyway. The only way to combat that incorrect post is to make the correction as widespread as possible.
