Entre #Halloween y el #DíaDeTodosLosSantos qué mejor que un hilo de películas de #terrordocente para amenizar este fin de semana. Eso sí, adminístrenlo con cuidado: su realismo puede afectar a su sensibilidad (si es que aún les queda alguna)...
1. El exorcista

Un tipo lúgubre es avisado para investigar a una familia que asegura que su hija "en casa se porta muy bien".
2. El resplandor

Tras un fin de semana sin dejar de corregir cuadernos, exámenes y cuanto documento manuscrito se cruza en su camino, un docente comienza a comportarse de modo extraño ante la mirada desconcertada de su familia.

What's scarier than ghouls, goblins, & 👻? 👀 Unqualified and extremely conservative nominees being confirmed to LIFETIME positions as federal judges. 😱

Their judgeships could have disastrous results for GENERATIONS. 😧 Meet just a handful of them. ⤵️

#Halloween #CourtsMatter
Extreme and biased: Sarah Pitlyk has gone on the record against alternative reproductive options, such as surrogacy and in vitro fertilization. She can’t be trusted to protect our health and rights. #StopPitlyk #CourtsMatter
We need judges who will protect our constitutional rights — not Steven Menashi who has spent his career working against them. Senators must stop his confirmation. #StopMenashi #CourtsMatter

(1/6) #HALLOWEEN THREAD 👇I have no doubt that you will see some PLAGUE DOCTORS lurking around dark corners this evening, so let's talk about the history of this creepy mask, and its connection with medicine.
(2/6) Although the plague ravaged Europe in the 14th century, killing nearly two-thirds of its population, the earliest textual description of the mask dates to the 17th century, when it was invented by Charles de Lorme, chief physician to Louis XIII.
(3/6) De Lorme imagined that herbs stuffed in the end of the beak would purify the air and prevent the doctor from breathing in harmful miasma, while the leather overcoat, breeches, boots and gloves would ensure that the skin was not exposed at any time.

It's now just before midnight here, and the #Halloween theme of today's #FolkloreThursday provides the perfect excuse for a thread on Malaysian #ghosts and other scary things. I will not include beings like the gergasi and bunian which are not ghosts at all but mythological races
One of the reasons for this thread is to give an authentic description of these ghosts from traditional folklore, the way they would've been imagined historically. This often differs from modern interpretations you'll find online or in movies and urban legends
Let's start with an explanation of terminology. The general word for ghost in modern Malay is hantu, although it actually means something more akin to "spirit" than ghost. Contrary to modern misconception, not all are bad or scary

This Halloween I look back to the Halloween of 1780 and the tragic tale of the HMS Ontario, which departed from Fort Niagara this day 239 years ago on route to Oswego, with 130 or more souls on board and loaded with a payroll of army gold. #Buffalo #WNY #History #Halloween
This is the height of the Revolutionary War, almost exactly one year before Cornwallis is defeated at Yorktown in October of 1781.
The HMS Ontario, at 80 feet long and with 22-guns, is the largest and most powerful warship on Lake Ontario (or any of the Great Lakes).

Hello, it’s #Halloween: when things go bump in the night, when international pumpkin sales soar through the roof, like a vampire bat on an ejector seat.

As if on cue, strange things have been happpening this week across the museum.

Buckle up.

🎃a haunted thread🎃

PART 1/2
Firstly, you might be aware of this, but in our garden we have two chickens. They live in a little chicken house. Their names are Lines & Puffball. These was chosen by Friday Fledglings, our under 5s group, who we should entrust with more infrastructure decisions than we do.
We have a group that tends to the chickens — a complex machine of many moving parts, that keep the chickens chicking over.

It’s kind of therapeutic, like an SAD light.

Life gets busy. Emails overflow. The soul blocks, spluttering like an old pipe.

¿Qué os parecen las máscaras que veis aquí debajo?
¿Sabéis para para qué sirven?
Como estamos de #Halloween quizá os apetezca un #HiloYTal para descubrir que hay máscaras imprescindibles para tratar el cáncer.
No asustan.
Pero ayudan.
En el tratamiento de los tumores cerebrales en ocasiones es necesario el uso de radioterapia.
Tras una intervención para quitar el tumor después se lleva a cabo el tratamiento adecuado para cada tipo cáncer.
La radioterapia es uno de ellos junto con la quimioterapia.
Mediante el uso de radiación ionizante se apunta y “quema” el tumor que no se haya podido retirar por inaccesible o porque tras la intervención permanece.
Estas cirugías, como podéis imaginar, son muy complejas. En ellas se procura la máxima resección con las mínimas secuelas.

Going against the “being free means I need to walk around half naked for validation; many soulless drunken encounters” in-crowd, & putting a thinking cap on: ♟

Q❓🤔Is the #DeepState nothing more than one global, “Mr Robot Evil Inc company”, with an office in every country❓
Is that MeBeE why, there’s this ostensible, one co-ordinated unfolding worldwide plan to:
🔹 Close borders to the competent, but let in as many unemployable hijacked-state illegal aliens I mean rapist thieving mercenaries to dry up taxpayers birthrights,...
... disenfranchise them, and of course DISARM them; so the invaders can finalize their 1984 takeover❓(Like, there’ll still always be serf jobs for hapless liberal picketers: think 🤩 ewekkas, pedopizzas, funding usury, drugs & that “TrueBlood”🧛🏼‍♂️🧛🏻‍♀️ market )

Even when passing out #Halloween candy, Donald Trump is a complete dick.
How empty and soulless a man Trump is to derive pleasure from bullying little kids in Halloween costumes. Fucking asshole.

Notice how he skips over little Spider-Man so he can mess with the kid that’s a minion. And some aide has to come pick up the candy. POS.
To be clear: what Trump is doing here is abuse. It may not be abuse you recognize, but that’s what it is.

by Robert Herrick, 1648

The hag is astride
This night for to ride,
The devil and she together ;
Through thick and through thin,
Now out and then in,
Though ne'er so foul be the weather.
A thorn or a burr
She takes for a spur,
With a lash of a bramble she rides now ;
Through brakes and through briars,
O'er ditches and mires,
She follows the spirit that guides now.
No beast for his food
Dare now range the wood,
But hush'd in his lair he lies lurking ;
While mischiefs, by these,
On land and on seas,
At noon of night are a-working.

With #Halloween approaching, what haunts you? I often worry about how quickly #animals are going extinct, and especially #frogs. Here's some of the ways your support can help me prevent then from becoming #environmental ghosts: #FridayFeeling #FrogFriday
Did you know? Many baby #frogs (tadpoles) act as “river lawn mowers” by grazing on algae and plant material that falls into rivers. Their presence helps protect clean water which people and #wildlife both depend on. #FrogFriday
Also, #frogs may help control the spread of human #diseases spread by #insects, like #malaria, dengue & Zika. The tadpoles of some frog species are carnivorous & kill mosquito eggs & larvae. Keeping frogs healthy can help keep people healthy too #OneHealth

A THREAD 🎃🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿

"All Hallows Eve is by the Welsh called ‘Nos Calan Gaeaf,’ meaning the first night of winter. It is one of the three nights for spirits, upon which ghosts walk and fairies are abroad." 1/

#Wales #Halloween #HalloweenCountdown #folklorethursday
(I'll be updating this thread daily as we count down to Halloween, and all quotes are courtesy of the great Wirt Sikes 1880 unless otherwise stated)
On #Halloween (Nos Calan Gaeaf) in Wales: "ghosts walk, fairies are abroad, mysterious influences are in the air, strange sights are seen, and in short goblins of every sort are to be with special freedom encountered."

#thread This may surprise many, but one of the richest books of Christian Theological insight (in my opionon) is the Exorcist by Peter Blatty. The movie too has some strong theological insight as well. Here are some of my favorite moments from each.
"What we give to the poor is what we take with us when we die."
“What seemed like morning was the beginning of endless night.”

It’s #Monday, I’m boozing it up at a 4 seat bar, the #barkeep is a long pourer, and I’m all fucking set if I get something stuck between my teeth.👇🙃 #RandomThoughts #drinking #OutAndAbout
Shooting the shit with a friend, she’s proud to be doing well with her plants - unusual for her.

The key was a #video explaining the benefits of pruning.

She needs REASONS. She got them.

Apparently, pruning in a particular manner stimulates growth hormones.
Of course, this led to me initiating a discussion about the #movie I just watched on Hulu, called “The German Doctor.”

The main character was Josef Mengele. #ThisHappened

People, this is why I’m known in my circles as “The Black Hole Of Conversation.” SMTH
