Biology’s cruel joke goes something like this: As a teenage body goes through puberty, its circadian rhythm essentially shifts three hours backward. Suddenly, going to bed at nine or ten o’clock at night isn’t just a drag, but close to a biological impossibility. Studies of teenagers around the globe have found that adolescent brains do not start releasing melatonin until around eleven o’clock at night and keep pumping out the hormone well past sunrise. Adults, meanwhile, have little-to-no melatonin in their bodies when they wake up. With all that melatonin surging through their bloodstream, teenagers who are forced to be awake before eight in the morning are often barely alert and want nothing more than to give in to their body’s demands and fall back asleep. Because of the shift in their circadian rhythm, asking a teenager to perform well in a classroom during the early morning is like asking them to fly across the country and instantly adjust to the new time zone — and then do the same thing every night, for four years.

This is why you have every right to be tired.

Researchers now see sleep problems as a cause, and not a side effect, of teenage depression.” - from the artcle!

But the U.S. education system won’t shift its schedule because it’s literal horse shit

For months, the Ebola epidemic was a terrible problem Today, the CDC confirmed the first case of Ebola diagnosed in the U.S.: a man who was traveling in Liberia and is now at a hospital in Dallas. Should you panic about Ebola now? Nope, and here’s why.

The bottom line is that Ebola spreads only through the direct contact with bodily fluids—making it a whole lot harder to spread than the airborne common flu. We also know exactly how to stop Ebola; the crisis in Africa has gotten so bad due to lack of healthcare infrastructure.

#medblr/healthcare workers, know the facts — cuz you’re going to be bombarded with panic-laden questions about Ebola now.

I was referring to the Warhammer universe as a whole not just the Astartes,

There are two factions which are gender exclusive.

Space Marines are 100% male….

At least eldar have like ninety percent of their leaders female in the lore at least of what I’ve read

From what I’ve seen since I’ve been into 40k, if female Space Marines were introduced, I can see the following happening:

- Adepta Sororitas will likely take a back seat and will once again become a supplemental army rather than a full army, making them lose every ounce of potential they have in becoming a powerful all-female faction.

- It will take precisely one million and fifteen years for GW to include female miniatures for non-Space Marine factions because they’re not Space Marines.

- The massive focus on Space Marines will likely get bigger and to me this huge focus is slowly but surely killing 40k.

"Honestly, I fail to see hatred for any real life group in the 40k universe…"

There’s so much wrong in this one phrase. I’m not even sure where I’d start to dissect it.

Females are in fluff equal. All races are equal. Sexuality in the imperium at large and in other factions (unless local planetary laws) is a non issue…

When someone i rp with though the 40k ffg rpgs tries to be a male ecclisiarchy warrior, or female space marine, then and most only then is there proper gender differences in this franchise.

As for making an issue of gender and Sexuality, that is for citizens and the imperial guard etc. Astartes and sororitas, and especially ad-mech, Care not for such.

"I want control taken away, I want to be completely owned, to have all my rights and privileges revoked." 
I get it, I really do. When I started in D/s as a sub this is how I thought as well. The thought of setting up rules, limits, and a safe word distracted from My fantasy. 
I didn’t want to know that by uttering a word I could stop the scene, because that meant that I was not responsible for what was happening to Me, and part of the appeal to surrendering control was giving up that feeling. 
But as I’ve said in many posts before, fantasy and reality are very different. 
Safe words and limits are there to protect both partners in a relationship. They are an important part of a D/s relationship and should not be neglected because, “Oh, it’s just a basic scene.”, “He knows exactly what I want anyway.”, “she said she didn’t want to be given a choice.”
I swear to you, I understand the desire and the appeal, but to keep all those involved safe, know your limits, agree upon a safe word or signal beforehand, and know that if anyone fights you on this, they are not someone you want to entrust your safety to. 
Simple as that.

"No one will miss me", "I’m better off dead"

When I worked at a non-profit that handled suicide prevention, I had access to the donation records. Each month, a specific man donated 15$ to our organization. It was like clockwork.. same day, same man, he had been doing this for over 4 years. It always seemed odd to me but I never questioned it… until I saw a note attached one month. "For Noah- Dad"

his donation was once his child’s allowance.

I can promise you, they would miss you for the rest of their lives.
