Why did every movie as a kid make me think that I would have to slide down massive wires/cables like this in order to escape mortal danger....
Just kidding, they're black straws. #moviehacks#illusions#misconceptions
Day 670. Weak. Pathetic. Deceptive. Self- centred. Greedy. Ill-willed. Abusive. Destructive. More than 60% of alcoholics suffer in silence, avoiding treatment because they fear public scrutiny. The stigma is strong, alive and well: Alcoholics are bad because they've made a conscious decision to escape from reality. If you're an Alcoholic, you're branded, negatively by the public at large. We've all felt the eyeroll from across the room, heard the rumours, and been the butt of countless jokes. -An observation: With popstar Aaron Carter's recent DUI charges, I noticed something interesting. In the realms of my personal social media, I noticed a great divide. Those who've never been impacted by addiction were quick to call Mr. Carter out, calling him every name in the book, poking fun at him for his destructive behavior. Whereas, those in the recovery community were quick to offer prayers of hope for Carter's well-being and future. I'm not condoning drinking and driving nor am I validating any damage done by anyone under the influence. But, the reaction of Carter's downward spiral by the public and media in general is a stark reminder that the stigma surrounding addiction is engrained in our culture. There is a brightside, however. It lies within our commitment to recovering out loud, without fear, stepping out of the shadows into the light. We're not lying, cheating, dumpster dwellers. Alcoholics and Addicts are doctors, lawyers, soccer moms, Church goers, teenagers, seniors, etc. They're you. They're me. I'm Pete. I'm a father, uncle, friend and brother. I'm an Alcoholic and I'm proud to share my recovery in an effort to let the world know that addiction and mental health are nothing to be ashamed of. #peteonrepeat#stigma#darkness#light#shadows#aaroncarter#misconceptions#liveoutloud#fear#courage#wedorecover
Religion is a consciousness of God. People who are not religious expect those who are to have a higher moral compass. This is what makes them respect their religion. However, when these religious people fall short of the expectations, the non-religious are dissapointed. Why? Dissapointment comes when deliverable is below expectation. There is a big misconception about God worldwide. Religion is man's explanation of God. Why must man explain God? God is big enough to explain himself more than any being on earth. God doesn't need to be defended. He can defend himself. The God of heaven and earth doesn't need his creation to defend him. He can defend himself. We continue tomorrow. #misconceptions#Godspeaks#Godislove#Godisreal#godisgood#God#Gotquestions#defender#religion
Have you heard anyone say "That's the way I am. I can't change." It's a funny statement but it doesn't have a strong foundation. Man inherits nature. Nature from surroundings, nature from parents. A nature can be changed no matter how deeply rooted it is. We walk according to laws put in us which are enforced by nature. Proud person, stealing, angry fellow. What about the thoughts of the heart? How can that be handled? Salvation is deeper than making a man moral. There are a lot of moral people who don't know God. There is a big misconception about God worldwide. God made man a free will. Meaning man can choose. Why? When you create your own being do whatever you want. What is salvation and what is being moral? Watch this space #misconceptions#Godspeaks#love#godisgood#Godislove#Gotquestions#laws#nature
New blog post. Find out all about why I'm an actual real life hero.... in my daughter's eyes anyway. Check it out, link in bio, obv!
Have you got any hilarious stories about childhood misconceptions? Do give us all a laugh and share....I'll give you a hint about mine, my daughter thinks I carried lots of water in a fire.
Get the full gist at
www.bigdanmcdon.wordpress.com ...The fact that you perform songs that bring tears to people's eyes doesn't make you a music minister. The fact you compel the crowd to speak in tongues during your performance doesn't make you a music minister. The fact that you always look serious with a permanent frown on your face, lacking a sense of humor doesn't make you a minister. Let me shock you.....the fact that you lay hands on folks while you perform, doesn't make you a minister. So what then makes you a minister?! #theprojectsalt#musiccareer#musicminister#gospelmusic#churchmusic#misconceptions
You deserve people in your life who understand you at your core. Who don’t have misconceptions about your personality or your intentions. People who not only “get you” but also care about your wellbeing and won’t betray your trust.
What I realized in the last two days; #misconceptions
You are responsible for how your children turn out.
Actually, You aren't. Children create themselves far more than the world creates them. That's why your children are so different from each other
Kids are rational.
Kids are nuts. Don't try to reason with them. While you play by their rules, carefully pass your message across
Forced to speak while the demons cried
Outward fear exposed from deep inside
Ready to fight and be a good girl
She knew if she spoke, that next she would hurl
Don't say breathe, relax or chill
For the demons inside refuse to be still
Choice is not present
Free will has been chained
Despite all her efforts her illness remains
Ruled by society she has to obey
All while her demons are let out to play
Toyed by intentions of others who say "You'll get better if you alter your way"

MISCONCEPTIONS SURROUNDING COFFEE! Do you have them? Most of us do! But it's okay ☺️ let's learn! -------
I recently had THIS happen to my coffee! My coffee is the medium roasted coffee under the dark & oily coffee. Without even tasting the coffee, someone threw their coffee on top of my coffee stating "I can tell my coffee is a higher quality just by looking at it, so I'm putting mine on top to try and help the bad coffee already in the machine." this a big time misconception but why? Any thoughts? Please comment! There are no bad comments, this is for fun and learning. 👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼
HAPPY SHARK AWARENESS DAY!
Jaws has hands down always been one of my favourite movies (along with most other shark movies 😂). But did you know this movie is actually partially responsible for the decline in population and misconceptions of sharks today?
After this movie hit theatres, beach goers declined dramatically. Shark fishing tournaments were started, as it was believed great whites were human tracking/eating machines. This growing shark hunting trend dramatically reduced all shark species over the following decades (many species by 50%, some up to as much as 90%!).
One inadvertent benefit linked with this drop in shark numbers was that scientists became aware of the need to learn more about sharks. This resulted in increased funding for shark research, improving our understanding of shark biology.
"Jaws was entirely fiction. Knowing what I know now, I could never write that book today. Sharks don't target human beings, and they certainly don't hold grudges." -Peter Benchley, author of Jaws novel.
"So wait, you worship Satan and make sacrifices?" "Haha so you ride a broomstick right?" "Oh don't cast a spell on me!" "You're going to Hell!" "Wow that's scary, so like, do you ever Hex people?"
Commonly asked questions and statements. I'm none of those things. In fact, I'm typically an awkward, anxious, cynical mess. I just happened to be a witch. I don't practice Black Magic, nor do I have a desire to. I'm a healer more than anything. Pagans don't worship Satan. We don't believe in Hell; though technically it's hell on earth. Our Pentacle doesn't represent Satan; each point represents one of the elements. In the center of mine in particular, it's the Tree of Life. I celebrate our 8 Sabbats. I'm not religious; I'm spiritual. I don't cast spells or hexes. I perform a few basic rituals, and use my psychic abilities to help others. I've been in the lowest places; I personally don't want to see others suffer the way I have. I'm proud to be a Pagan witch; and I'm proud to wear my Pentacle. I'm more than happy to talk to anyone about what I am; end the stigma that witches are evil or we only practice Black Magic. .
There is a law in man that opposes God. Yes, laws that oppose God the creator. In democracy, there are things known as state and federal laws. There are some laws that affect the whole nation while in some states, that law does not hold true. E.g. death penalty for criminals. When it says man died, it doesn't mean man failed to exist, it means man was disconnected from God. When your phone battery is empty, you say your phone is dead. Why? Because it is not connected to a power source. There are laws in operation in man. There is a law of life and there is a law of death. This is where the Messiah comes into play. For a child is born to us, a son is given to us. The government will rest on his shoulders. And he will be called: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9v6 #Godislove#misconceptions#Godspeaks#love#godisgood#messiah#God
Healthy eating can be fun and can taste good. Common misconceptions: all fat is bad, heavy calorie meals will make you fat and carbs are the devil..... The best times to indulge and enjoy yourself a little more is before a session of exercise or shortly after. High intensity exercise sessions have been observed to cause reductions in immune function (short term) and therefore make individuals more prone to colds and upper respiratory tract infections. One way to counter act this is ensuring you are eating enough calories per day (including after your exercise session) to give your body's immune system the greatest fighting chance at remaining strong and efficient. The appropriate knowledge and understanding can offset common misconceptions that may actually be hindering your aims and goals. Train wise and eat wiser 👍🏼 #science#sportscience#nutrition#healthyeating#misconceptions
