“Any time you put something over your face, you’re going to adopt a personality and a physicality that has nothing to do with acting. It allows a performance to be free.”—Tom Hardy (via lullabiesfromdresden)
when i was in second grade we sat in tables of four, facing inward, and i sat across from this boy who was obsessed with pokemon
we had pencil boxes, and the fad at the time was to put stickers all over your pencil box, but our teacher was staunchly opposed to this and she’d make us take them off if she caught us putting them there
so one day the kid across from me got caught with like 20 pokemon on his pencil box and the teacher was like “you need to get organized, take those off”
and i have this incredibly vivid memory of this little fuckin boy taking 20 pokemon stickers and methodically pressing them inside his notebook like you’d press leaves or flowers
and he was whispering to himself “i can’t change the past, but i can protect the future”
Two more men seem to have been cured of HIV through bone marrow transplants, according to news out of the International AIDS Conference.
This is in addition to Timothy Brown, who earlier underwent similar treatment that seemed to have removed HIV from his body. Researchers are preparing to study other HIV-positive people who have undergone bone marrow transplants to look for similar results.
The two men who were being treated at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston for cases of cancer at different times. One of the men is in his 20s and was infected at birth, while the other man is in his 50s, and has been infected with HIV since the early 1980s. After each receiving bone marrow transplants, the men also remained on their antiretroviral medication regimens, according to NBC News.
Within eight months of their respective transplant surgeries, it was discovered that the patients’ cells were replaced by cells from the HIV-negative bone marrow donors. The men also now show no signs of HIV in their DNA or RNA. Levels of HIV antibodies have also decreased.
