why does this have 32k notes? it’s just a picture of a knife in a ranch bottle, is there some unspoken joke that 32 thousand people share? what is going on here, i dont get it. it’s just a fucking picture of a knife in a ranch bottle. is there some spiritual connection people have to this picture? is there some ominous and mystical reasoning that this has 32 thousand notes? do people reblog this because it makes them look like some indie blogger? or is there just something funny to this? someone please explain

The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings but shorter tempers, wider Freeways, but narrower viewpoints. We spend more, but have less, we buy more, but enjoy less. We have bigger houses and smaller families, more conveniences, but less time. We have more degrees but less sense, more knowledge, but less judgment, more experts, yet more problems, more medicine, but less wellness. We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom. We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values. We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often. We’ve learned how to make a living, but not a life. We’ve added years to life not life to years. We’ve been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet a new neighbor. We conquered outer space but not inner space. We’ve done larger things, but not better things. We’ve cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul. We’ve conquered the atom, but not our prejudice. We write more, but learn less. We plan more, but accomplish less. We’ve learned to rush, but not to wait. We build more computers to hold more information, to produce more copies than ever, but we communicate less and less. These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion, big men and small character, steep profits and shallow relationships. These are the days of two incomes but more divorce, fancier houses, but broken homes. These are days of quick trips, disposable diapers, throwaway morality, one night stands, overweight bodies, and pills that do everything from cheer, to quiet, to kill. It is a time when there is much in the showroom window and nothing in the stockroom. A time when technology can bring this letter to you, and a time when you can choose either to share this insight, or to just hit delete. Remember to spend some time with your loved ones, because they are not going to be around forever. Remember, say a kind word to someone who looks up to you in awe, because that little person soon will grow up and leave your side. Remember, to give a warm hug to the one next to you, because that is the only treasure you can give with your heart and it doesn’t cost a cent. Remember, to say, ‘I love you’ to your partner and your loved ones, but most of all mean it. A kiss and an embrace will mend hurt when it comes from deep inside of you. Remember to hold hands and cherish the moment for someday that person will not be there again. Give time to love, give time to speak! And give time to share the precious thoughts in your mind. And always remember, life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by those moments that take our breath away.

19th Century Morphine Syringe 
Morphine was isolated from opium in 1803 by Frederick Wilhelm Adam Serturner in Germany, who called his creation ‘morphium’, which was later shortened to morphine. Morphine was only about one-tenth the weight of raw opium but it was ten times stronger.
Morphine first became available in the United States in the 1830s but its popularity surged several decades later. The drug was frequently used to treat wounded soldiers in the Civil War and some developed a lifelong addiction to the drug. In addition, widows and family members of soldiers who died in the war often took morphine or other opiates to deal with their grief.
Morphine was commonly used in the second half of the 19th century, particularly after the development of the hypodermic needle, which was introduced in the United States in 1856. At that time, doctors believed that since injected morphine did not travel through the digestive system, then there would be no craving for the drug, and thus, morphine would not be addicting. Of course, they were wrong in this assumption.
People in the 19th century also took morphine as a treatment for sexually transmitted diseases, such as syphilis, as well as for a broad host of other diseases and medical conditions, such as sciatica, cholera, hernia, and even sunstroke.
Americans could purchase syringes by mail from catalogues, and some fashionable women carried their morphine syringes in special pouches attached to their belts or sashes. Many individuals, including physicians, had no idea of the dangers that were associated with reusing needles. Because of this lack of knowledge, unsterile needles caused severe skin abscesses in many users.
