imagine if prostate cancer research was marketed like breast cancer

women in “i <3 pegging” bracelets

"save the anal!"

I don’t understand this joke. Can someone explain it to me?

Not sure where the joke is, but…



Yeah.  That’s just gross.  Every breast cancer walk I go to, “save the ta-tas” has a new, demeaning slogan.  

I have a genetically-inclined friend, who at 34, is having a voluntary mastectomy in a few months.  It’s not about saving 2nd base.  Gosh. 

I don’t know what “pegging” or “anal” has to do with a prostate. [Nevermind that “anal” is an adjective, not a noun.]  

Here’s a newsflash, 34k people who reblogged this, the prostate isn’t in the anus.  Butt jokes, involving the prostate, do not make sense.  A friend of mine, at 43 years old, recently had his cancerous prostate removed. The robotic surgery pulled it out, through his belly button.

Lucid dream [is] a phenomenon in which the dreamer becomes aware they are dreaming and can potentially control their actions as well as the content and context of the dream. Lucid dreams are generally understood to occur exclusively during REM, the final phase of the sleep cycle that is most closely related to wakefulness and the one generally associated with dreams. Research on the prevalence of lucid dreamers suggests that if you’ve never had a lucid dream, you may be in the minority.


[Studies indicate] that practicing a physical activity during a lucid dream could improve performance in waking life.


The strategy laid out for actively training yourself to lucid dream [in the] 1991 book, Exploring the World of Lucid Dreaming … boils down to are identifying discrepancies from reality that can help you realize you are dreaming and, hopefully, gain conscious control of your dream. The first step, therefore, is to spend a few weeks recording your dreams and identifying these themes.

The Atlantic's Tiffanie Wen explores the latest research on lucid dreaming. Pair with this animated explainer of how it works, then dive deeper with Exploring the World of Lucid Dreaming. (via explore-blog)

I can only really recall this happening once. It was summer. Early 90’s. I was probably 17. I was having a nightmare where Freddy Krueger was chasing me.
I realized I was dreaming. Felt the bed under me. Could not open my eyes or move.
Finally I was able to sit up and open my eyes. Heart was racing.
I’ve been interested in this sort of thing for years, but never worked towards it.

I think what you are describing is more along the lines of Sleep Paralysis. Waking up from lucid dreaming isn’t that much different from normal sleep. At least not inmy experience.

I have Lucid Dreams a few times per month. I don’t make an effort to have them, but probably should. The benefits seem interesting. Of course, you’re lucid dreaming now, but won’t know the difference tomorrow when you wake up.

I’ve only had Sleep Paralysis a few times, and its the same every time. I know that I’m asleep, but I can’t do anything at all to wake myself up! It’s been years since this has happened, until last night. I think I finally moaned enough that my wife woke me up. I don’t get too excited about it, but its sort of horrible. I want to yell for help, but it won’t come out! Years ago, I started to realize what was happening and just decided to stop fighting -and go back to sleep.

I had forgotten about last night. Wow. What a coincidence.
