That’s it, I’m moving to London…
Take me with you?
Ah I love seeing actors in everyday life, all peaceful :3
Just King Arthur casually sitting over there. Nbd
Hugh Jackman is like “I’m onto you”
I’m packed and ready to go. When are we moving?
Licia Ronzulli, member of the European Parliament, has been taking her daughter Vittoria to the Parliament sessions for two years now.
I love how the baby’s style evolves and she is trying to give her input too.

Blood clot by James Archer
A thrombus, or blood clot, is the final product of the blood coagulation step in hemostasis.
Blood clotting is an important mechanism to help the body repair injured blood vessels.
Blood consists of:
-red blood cells containing hemoglobin that carry oxygen to cells and remove carbon dioxide (the waste product of metabolism)
-white blood cells that fight infection
-platelets that are part of the clotting process of the body
-blood plasma, which contains fluid, chemicals and proteins that are important for bodily functions.
Complex mechanisms exist in the bloodstream to form clots where they are needed. If the lining of the blood vessels becomes damaged, platelets are recruited to the injured area to form an initial plug. These activated platelets release chemicals that start the clotting cascade, using a series of clotting factors produced by the body. Ultimately, fibrin is formed, the protein that crosslinks with itself to form a mesh that makes up the final blood clot.
Blood clots are healthy and lifesaving when they stop bleeding. However, blood clots can also form abnormally, causing a heart attack, stroke, or other serious medical problems.
Most heart attacks and strokes result from the sudden formation of a blood clot on a waxy cholesterol plaque inside an artery in the heart or brain. When the plaque ruptures suddenly, thrombogenic substances inside the plaque are exposed to blood, triggering the blood clotting process.
Only on Tumblr could you find advice on being buried alive in the same post as advice on cereal dust.

Wound Man circa 1400s.
Before medical anatomical studies flourished in the Renaissance period, the physician had a Wound Man diagram. First appearing in European surgical texts of the Middle Ages, it was a schematic diagram that outlined the various wounds a person might suffer in battle or in accidents and served as a quick reference for treatment approaches.
