do you ever just listen to someone’s problem and you have nothing to say except “I’m sorry” because there is literally no way for you to help and you get sucked into a vortex of guilt and despair because you are useless
US army doctor returns arm to Vietnamese soldier fifty years after he took it as a souvenir.
there are so many intersecting levels of fucked up here
It’s important to note that when Hung, an injured North Vietnamese soldier, went to the doc, he was on the brink of dying from a bullet wound infection in that arm. Instead of letting the enemy die, Axelrad amputated him.
Hung spent six months recovering, almost a year helping American doctors, and then provided medical services for the rest of the war.
Not saying it’s not fucked up to take a dude’s skeletal remains with you, but cool to know a bit more of the back story on this duo. Keeping what you amputate off ain’t common practice. Returning it means Hung can be buried with the arm. In Asia, there is a bit of tradition to be buried whole (which is why organ donation is frowned upon).

I’ve literally stopped talking mid-word in a story and no one has noticed.
All the time
I do not know the individual involved in this, but, as an EMT, I feel compelled to post things like this. Wear a damn helmet, guys. I know you may think you look awesome and all the ladies will love how reckless you are, but you’re honestly just demonstrating just how little you value your own life. I know this horse has been absolutely beaten to death over the years, and I’m sure that my words won’t change some of your minds, but just look at the damage sustained by that helmet. Now imagine if your face was put through the same situation. While the helmet merely had part of it ground away by the sheer friction involved, your skull would be pudding. End of story.
TLDR Version: Wear a freaking helmet.
thank goodness that harry potter is around when life gives you hell
Whenever anyone is talking about how feminist Avatar is they always forget how within the first 4 minutes of the first episode Sokka says ‘Leave it to a girl to screw everything up’ and the Katara calls him sexist and gets so mad she destroys an iceberg and finds the Avatar and basically Katara calling Sokka out on his shit started the whole show
