donate life

I, (my name), have signed up with the Donate Life California Organ & Tissue Donor Registry. Please join me in saving and enhancing the lives of thousands of people in need of your help. It took me only a few minutes to sign up — minutes that could mean years of life for someone else.

To sign up or for more information, please visit www.donateLIFEcalifornia.org.

I did this a while ago, August 31. I just forgot about posting it here until I was cleaning out my e-mail inbox today. *snerk* Also I haven’t really updated this blog in a while, so … here’s something!

The main reason I didn’t sign up earlier than this summer was I wasn’t sure if a family member wanted my body for a funeral and a burial plot. >_> But meh. I just signed up for it. Before that, a minor reason I didn’t even put the pink dot on my driver’s license was that I had to fully accept that I’m really gonna die eventually. *laugh*

knucklecracking

Euwww, got this from something on MSN about knuckle cracking:

The sound you’re hearing is actually two sounds (researchers put microphones up to knuckles to confirm this). The first sound happens when you pull your joint and create a bubble. The second sound is the bubble popping. Joints are where two separate bones meet. Ligaments and connective tissue hold them together, in kind of a bath of thick fluid. When you pull apart a joint, it creates extra space for the fluid. So, that first bubble forms. When the bubble appears, the liquid pushes back on the ligaments, snapping them back into place.

:O I didn’t take any course on the human body; I didn’t know there was a “thick fluid” between joints. It’s things like this that make me not want to move … *coughweirdcough*

My thumb knuckle hurt for the longest time today. :( After math. :b
