Flying Every time I hear about UFO sightings, I think about this video:



That's a 57 year-old Avro Vulcan Bomber that has been out of service since the 1980s. Note how saucer-like it looks at some angles. Imagine the stuff that governments are testing now that we have no idea about.

Chantelle Rants Apparently, there is a shortage of people like this:



It's horrific to realise that in this century, in this millennium, there are still people who believe that the way to cure a broken mind is by ridding them of demons.

Chantelle Rants Apparently, how it works is, if you live at the Vatican, you're free from any nasty legal issues that may have cropped up while you allowed thousands of children to be raped at the hands of your minions.

Chantelle Rants Meet Lama.



Well, actually, you can't meet her, because she's dead. So let's talk about her and remember her and see if we can't come up with a way to prevent what happened to her from happening to anyone, anywhere, EVER AGAIN.

Her father was worried that she wasn't a virgin, so he savagely beat her and raped her. She arrived at the hospital with a crushed skull, broken bones, burns and burns. Her rectum had been torn open and then her father had tried to burn it shut. It took ten months for her to die from these horrific injuries. DID I MENTION THAT SHE WAS FIVE-YEARS OLD!

Horrified? Offended? Sickened? Good, you should be, let's continue.

Flying This is impressive footage of what an emergency landing actually looks like (all of the people on board escaped with minor injuries). Note where the cell phone ends up during the landing. Hence the reason securing the cabin is always part of the checklist.

Pump up the Volume The cost of bad timing is pretty steep sometimes.

Chantelle Rants That's all love is, after all, a mix of chemicals coursing through our bodies and causing reactions that we big-brained humans have decided to call love.

Where to go from the topic of love? To mental illness, of course! One of the markers of several mental illnesses, is that of trouble within romantic relationships. (Check out http://www.cmha.ca/mental-health/understanding-mental-illness/ to see the various mental illnesses and their traits.)

As I've spent the last couple of years understanding my own mental health and all the how and whys surrounding my illness, I've come to FULLY realise that there are no easy answers and no cut and dried diagnoses. While depressive episodes come and go, they will build upon one another. Imagine if you cut yourself and it slowly bled and then healed, bled and then healed, each time becoming worse and more likely to fester with infection. That is the case with mental illness. When it doesn't get treated, it just get worse as the years pass by. While depression is what finally took me out, it was likely childhood ADD that led to the depression and anxiety I've experienced most of my life. ADD would not have even been on the table when I was a child, it wasn't even something that had a name. I was simply “over-sensitive” and “high-strung”. To give you an idea of what I experienced as a child, I was already having problems with insomnia as early as six. Many children have night terrors when they are three or four but mine have continued into adulthood. I simply have never been able to turn my brain off at night. As a child, I would lie awake worrying that the house would burn down, worrying that a nuclear war would occur, worrying that my cat would escape while camping and not come home. At school, I was terrified of ever publicly making any sort of mistake whether it be in class or in the gym. My sense of shame has always been crushing.

We're Okay PZ, Thanks for Asking

Chantelle Rants Because of the following video, PZ Meyers is worried about Canada:

It's nice that he's concerned.
