In other words, I'd rather my photos look so purple that I'm repeatedly told to turn off the filter ("... it's not a filter") then to have all the whites stand out. If I could rewind to 5pm yesterday, I'd tell myself to grab my phone, too.
Now all the photos of me, from the event, look like I've moved onto the heavenly after-life.

So my parents have a program on about scams in the UK. One of which covers fake cigarettes.
Essentially the fake part being that the strip inside the paper (which is meant to reduce how long a cigarette burns once it is lit and left in order to reduce the chances of someone falling asleep and the cigarette setting a sofa alight) is not there. In the program's run a woman talks about her mother who dies when she falls asleep and one of these fake cigarettes falls from her hand and she burns to death.
Now while I appreciate that the fake cigarettes might have contributed to this, it's also mentioned that the woman in question had already had two strokes at around 50 and was pretty shaky anyhow. And most importantly, they never once demonstrate the effects of the fake cigarette burning longer on the exact same sofa the mother burned to death on....in fact they never test it on any sofas throughout the entire section.
So my question is: Why bother with that story at all? What purpose does it serve when they in no way proved that the lack of a limiting strip inside the paper contributed to the death in some way. For example a few years ago a man about 12 houses down from us set fire to his house the same way, but his cigarettes were officially available ones and even though they burned out quickly it still lasted long enough to set fire to his particular sofa. Maybe it was the material, but without a test within the show they cannot back up their claims.
This also brings into question if there is any other risk for fake cigarettes that real ones don't already carry; is it a scam to slowly poison yourself unofficially? Perhaps the tobacco inside is....of poorer quality in some way and with more contributions of rat shit than normal, but since they never mention that I can only assume not.
Sounds like someone paid a lot of money to make sure people smoke the right kind of cigarettes....wouldn't want to undercut the legitimacy of any tobacco companies.
This bullshit is all over the place and if even I can pick up on it something is wrong.'Consciousness is not simply a sensory-perceptual affair, a matter of mental imagery, as the contents of our mind would have us believe. It is deeply enmeshed with the brain mechanisms that automatically promote action readiness' - Jaak Panksepp

Today is the day when I officially acquired my 4th bruise. Oh yay!
I actually managed to acquire 4 bruises within a period of one month. I'm such a pro when it comes to accidents, ain't I?
Bruise Number One: I was at my workplace, I didn't notice the machine in front of me, I bumped into that machine, and I ended up having one big bruise on my knee
Bruise Number Two: I accidentally hit my knee onto the metal thing when I was about to sit down in the bus
Bruise Number Three: A bamboo pole fell onto my head. Thank goodness I didn't bleed, but I have to end up doing an Xray scan to check for any concussion.
Bruise Number Four: The bus was moving, I couldn't keep my balance, and I ended up hitting my knee onto the chair
