Inflating a set of cat lungs

Lungs are by most accounts mundane. Everybody has them, few give it much thought. But sequestered within darkness of the chest cavity, enveloping the fluttering heart, there’s a incredible wonder to this oddly inflatable organ.

Dissection is a destructive process. Rudely excised from membranous mooring and nourishing vessels, the deflated lungs appear little more than bloodied meat; amorphous and exposed…….until a breath of air unfurls its secret glory. 

Here, a set of cat lungs is inflated with a straw. Comprised of hundreds of millions of microscopic air sacks called aveoli, Mammalian lungs harbor air capacity that is difficult to believe unless seen. The color of the entire organ lightens into a soft pink, as each microscopic sac fills with air.

A debt of gratitude is owed to cyborgraptor for her assistance in creating these gifs, as well as the students that help me film this demo. 

Public service announcement: You essentially have balloons inside your chest. There’s some really great anatomy GIFs and images on that blog, too.

The more I learn of how we we function, the more amazed that we do at all.

Shapes (1/?) Fall 2013

You have to let those feelings inside of you.  You have to let them be a part of you.  You have to accept them.  Then you can heal.

Look at the difference: In 1977 I bought a small house in Portland Oregon for $24,000. At the time I was earning $5 per hour working at a large auto parts store. I owned a 4 year old Chevy Nova that cost $1,500. Now, 36 years later that same job pays $8 an hour, that same house costs $185,000 and a 4 year old Chevy costs $10,000. Wages haven’t kept up with expenses at all. And, I should point out that that $5 an hour job in 1977 was union and included heath benefits.

How Porn Creates The John: Porn, Trafficking & the Social Construction of Masculinity with Ph.D Gail Dines

This. This. This.

I loathe the stereotype that being feminist means you hate men, because most feminists don’t, they hate the patriarchy and the two are not the same thing. It’s entirely possible to hate and want to change the system without hating the people who benefit most from it.

Can I also point out: “A lot of women consume written porn, both original content and fandom made, and draw a lot of their own porn, produce and shoot their own porn.” - youtube comment.

Don’t talk to yourself in such a way that if you did so to a friend, it would end your friendship.

If you had a friend dealing with the same things, you wouldn’t berate that person, say, ‘You’re not working hard enough,’ ‘You suck,’ or ‘You’re not as good as [whomever].’ You’d offer your friend encouragement, you’d try to point out all the things your friend did right, and how much progress your friend had made.

You should do no less for yourself.

Be very careful how you talk to yourself. Because you are listening.
