Newborn baby stuns doctors by holding her own bottle (in the UK)

A baby girl has amazed doctors with her ability to hold her own feeding bottle. Two-week-old Ammra was able to grasp her bottle alone just three days after she was born at Queen’s Hospital, Romford in Essex, her mother Onyi Chiedozie said.The 20-year-old, who is using a combination of breast and bottle feeding, said doctors and nurses were stunned by the baby’s ability to master her strong grip so soon after she was born.

this baby is gonna be a brain surgeon when she’s like 10

For people who are like big deal, she held a cup.

My nephew didn’t hold a bottle till he was like one.  Most babies don’t know how to process gravity or the concept of if you grip the bottle it stays close to you where you can suckle it and if you tilt it back the liquid is accessible and it’s a lot to process for a baby okay.

This baby is way ahead in neuromuscular and cognitive development. She’s one of the xmen probably, it’s really amazing, the equivalent of a baby saying it’s first word at 2 months old ok it’s really amazing


I was standing
You were there
Two worlds collided
And they could never, ever, tear us apart



"The goal is not to turn kids into your kind of adult, but rather, better adults than you have been. Progress happens because new generations grow and develop and become better than the previous ones.”

From Adora Svitak’s talkWhat adults can learn from kids.” In her talk, Adora makes a case for why adults shouldn’t underestimate kids. And they shouldn’t. Kids are doing amazing things. Let’s just take a second to think about how Adora organized her first TEDxYouth event when she was just 12.

This weekend, young people around the world are attending, organizing, speaking at, and watching TEDxYouthDay events — TEDx events dedicated to the ingenuity of kids worldwide. Every year we’re taken aback by the amazing things that come out of these events, and we think you should be, too. Find a TEDxYouthDay event near you to attend or watch live online here.

actual footage of Anders in Dragon Age Inquisition


I seriously don’t get why people claim they accidently romance someone and later whine about it when Bioware been telling us what dialogue option does initiate the romance since Da2 (It’s seriously annoy me)

Aka the “I-need-a-fucking-huge-heart-in-the-middle-of-my-screen-otherwise-I’m incapable-of-telling-this-is-a-romance-dialogue-option, you mean?



CONFESSION:  I can’t believe that people got offended when David
Gaider described Alistair as a man-child. He plays with Gray Warden and horse puppets if you give them to him as a gift (in a most adorable fashion I must say), he seems to love his toys

As the person he responded to when he said it, and also as an Alistair fan that can see both his positive and negative aspects, I was not offended in the least. He also said that Alistair is sometimes “an asshole, incapable of self-reflection.” These points are right on the money as far as I’m concerned. That said, I did find it surprising because I had never seen him use such negative terms when commenting on Alistair.

But this is also the same person that took great pains to explain Alistair’s response during the Landsmeet to a player that A) has a well known forum history of hating on Alistair, and B) notoriously does not listen to counter arguments. He knows Alistair’s strengths, weaknesses, faults, motivations, and personality better than anyone, and he’s also able to have a multi-faceted view of his own character.

And frankly, those players should get over it. Getting offended on behalf of a fictional person is ridiculous.

(bolded by me)

Yes, yes, he is. Very much so, in some situations. Doesn’t make Alistair less an interesting character however, quite the contrary. Well-written characters always have their flaws, after all. I love him even more for that, tbh. Hence I always saw Gaider’s choice of words for Alistair as a good-natured, snarky jab, actually meaning that he is young and will learn, given the time. Maybe that is just me tho.

And omg, the user Butterfly Effect O.O Their hatred of Alistair on the BSN was/is next to legendary…if it wouldn’t be so one-track-minded and pathetic, that is. I had my fair share of encounters with this ‘lovely’ person as well over the years. …I mean there is hating a fictional character, and then there is Butterfly Effect, wronged 5-ever by Alistair Theirin and not shy to let you know of it. Again and again and again.

So it was a game-design choice to make the game more balanced/challenging? Good to know that the reasons for it are not founded in the lore, and much better this way, tbh.
