Just a bit of escapism

With American Independence Day around the corner, and the customary fireworks, here’s a look at the chemistry of gunpowder and its role in pyrotechnic displays: http://wp.me/p4aPLT-lMAdapted from the quick and dirty graphic I created for the ask from wonderousscience - note that in that graphic, I accidentally swapped the percentages for potassium nitrate and charcoal! This graphic shows the correct percentages.

think I might be done butchering the opening of the story thing…perhaps this will help me get farther than twelve pages in before throwing my hands up in defeat and starting all over again.

HOW TO SURVIVE A HEART ATTACK WHEN ALONE Let’s say it’s 6.15pm and you’re going home (alone of course), after an unusually hard day on the job. You’re really tired, upset and frustrated. Suddenly you start experiencing severe pain in your chest that starts to drag out into your arm and up into your jaw. You are only about five miles from the hospital nearest your home. Unfortunately you don’t know if you’ll be able to make it that far. You have been trained in CPR, but the guy that taught the course did not tell you how to perform it on yourself..!! NOW HOW TO SURVIVE A HEART ATTACK WHEN ALONE… Since many people are alone when they suffer a heart attack, without help, the person whose heart is beating improperly and who begins to feel faint, has only about 10 seconds left before losing consciousness. However, these victims can help themselves by coughing repeatedly and very vigorously. A deep breath should be taken before each cough, and the cough must be deep and prolonged, as when producing sputum from deep inside the chest. A breath and a cough must be repeated about every two seconds without let-up until help arrives, or until the heart is felt to be beating normally again. Deep breaths get oxygen into the lungs and coughing movements squeeze the heart and keep the blood circulating. The squeezing pressure on the heart also helps it regain normal rhythm. In this way, heart attack victims can perhaps buy precious time to get themselves to a phone and dial 911.

also:  heart attack symptoms for women/trans men/dfab people are often different than the ones listed here!  it’s more common for them to have jaw, neck, arm, stomach, or back pain, and they tend to experience more of an uncomfortable squeezing or fullness in the chest rather than crushing pain.  other more common symptoms include heart palpitations, fatigue, shortness of breath, sweating, and nausea.  these symptoms are often overlooked by those experiencing a heart attack because they deviate so much from the more well-known symptoms, often leading them to delay treatment and potentially put their life at further risk.  make sure you know these facts in case you or a loved one will need them in the future!
