Water-stained violin proven to be the one that played Nearer my God to Thee by Wallace Hartley as the Titanic sank is found. [x]

It is the instrument that he played as the ship went down in the Atlantic, and that he later used as a buoyancy aid once Titanic went down.

The violin was discovered only by chance when the son of an amateur musician found it in his attic. It was given to his mother by her violin teacher and was left gathering dust.

The discovery was almost too good to be true, prompting experts to have the relic forensically examined by some of the most revered scientific bodies in Britain.

Now, after seven years of testing at a cost of tens of thousands of pounds, the water-stained violin has been proven to be the one played by Hartley on the night of the tragedy.

These pictures show how incredibly well-preserved the rose wood violin is despite its age and it being exposed to the sea for 10 days after the sinking.

There are two long cracks on its body that are said to have been opened up by moisture damage.

The photos also show the corroded engraved silver plate screwed onto the base of the fiddle that provided scientists with they key proof of its authenticity.

The historic violin, said to be worth a six figure sum, will go on public display at the Belfast City Hall, where Titanic was built, at the end of March.

Negotiations are also under way to exhibit it in museums around the world including America. It is likely to be auctioned off in the future.

Titanic experts have described it as the most important artefact associated with the infamous liner to have come to light.

❝ Wound Types, Stages of Healing, & Treatments


Reformatted for easy reading. Link to original at bottom of page. Many of the treatments listed are under the assumption one has access to hospitals and doctors.

Wound: from the Old English word, wund

Wound healing consists of an orderly progression of events that reestablish the integrity of the damaged tissue. The initial wound touches off a series of programmed, separate yet interdependent responses to the injury, including inflammation, epithelialization (growth of new skin), angiogenesis (blood vessel regeneration), and the accumulation of matrix, the cells necessary to heal the tissue. Many wounds pose no challenge to the body’s innate ability to heal; some wounds, however, may not heal easily either because of the severity of the wounds themselves or because of the poor state of health of the individual. The Life Extension Foundation has designed this protocol to support and enhance the healing of internal and external wounds that fall into this category. (For related information on how to support the body’s ability to heal and rebuild itself, refer to the Catabolic Wasting and Muscle Building protocols.) Any wound that does not heal should be examined by a healthcare professional because it might be infected, might reflect an underlying disease such as diabetes, or might be a serious wound requiring medical treatment. Always inform your healthcare provider of all supplements and treatments you are using.

Types of Wounds

Although all wounds follow roughly the same healing process, there are many different causes of wounds. Partial-thickness wounds penetrate the outer layers of the skin (the epidermis and the superficial dermis) and heal by regeneration of epithelial tissue (skin). Full-thickness wounds involve a loss of dermis (deeper layers of skin and fat) and of deep tissue, as well as disruption of the blood vessels; they heal by producing a scar. Wounds are classified by stage. Stage I wounds are characterized by redness or discoloration, warmth, and swelling or hardness. Stage II wounds partially penetrate the skin. Stage III describes full-thickness wounds that do not penetrate the tough white membrane (fascia) separating the skin and fat from the deeper tissues. Stage IV wounds involve damage to muscle or bone and undermining of adjacent tissue. They may also involve the sinus tracts (red streaks indicating infected lymph vessels).

One medical term for a wound is an ulcer. An ulcer is an open sore on the skin (or a mucous membrane) that causes destruction of surface tissue. An ulcer can be shallow or deep and crater-shaped. Ulcers are usually inflamed and painful.

Traumatic Ulcers

  • An injury caused by any kind of accident (or trauma) can result in a wound that affects the skin, blood vessels, bones, muscles, soft tissue, or organs that may result in development of an ulcer.

Commonly confused medieval weapons, a powerpoint by me.

Now stop screwing them up, seriously, or I will put a medieval weapon in your head.

THIS is a WAR SCYTHE, a scythe actually used in combat. Notice it is not a useless piece of shit and is an actual functional weapon.

The only reason why death is pictured with a FARMING scythe is because he harvests souls.

One more side note, at some point in my life I really should learn how to use photoshop. Perhaps I can make something better to tribute things/ideas I want with photomanips, or at the least, I can edit the images I draw better.

But so far, I can’t find much use of photoshop when I’m satisfied with paint sai. Or maybe I just haven’t explored it as much as I can.

When you feel my heat, look into my eyes
It’s where my demons hide, it’s where my demons hide
Don’t get too close, it’s dark inside
It’s where my demons hide, it’s where my demons hide (x)

More of my awful and lazy attempt at calligraphy, forgive me.

To partner with Cael’s ”Monster”, here are Enaya’s “Demons”, inspired by the song by Imagine Dragons.

Side note: I seem to have forgotten if I should spell her name with an “I” instead of a “Y”.

Brienne of Tarth

If I told you what I was, would you turn your back on me?
And if I seem dangerous, would you be scared?
I get the feeling just because everything I touch isn’t dark enough
If this problem lies in me… 

This song just echoes Cael’s thoughts, and I had to make this! I’m planning another Imagine Dragons inspired art later on.
