A write-in candidate for the US Kentucky Senate is bringing his controversial message to voters.
"There is no anti-semitism in America!"
Vice President Joe Biden drew fire from a prominent Jewish group on Tuesday after he described unscrupulous bankers who prey on servicemen and servicewomen deployed overseas as “Shylocks” — a term frequently condemned as an anti-Semitic caricature.
Well that’s awkward.
I constantly wonder about epileptic people. Like, how severe of a flashing does it have to be to trigger a seizure? Can the colon thing on a digital clock set it off? Because on some clocks those flash. Or like when there’s a power outage and the digital clock is reset - can that trigger a seizure?
What do you do when you’re driving or in a car and an ambulance or police car or firetruck pass by with their sirens and lights? Cover your eyes? Do you have to cover your eyes or quickly pull over to cover your eyes? What about the flashing lights that go off during a fire drill at school?? Or the roadwork signs that flash. Or what if there’s a lightning storm???
I don’t even have it and I don’t even know anybody who does, but I’m like panicking for them oh my goshI am genuinely concerned
luckily not all epileptics are triggered by flashing lights, but i can definitely inform you on this.
the type of epilepsy that is triggered by flashing lights is called photosensitive epilepsy (PSE)
a clock would not be enough to trigger it. usually the lights have to be flashing much quicker. a police car is enough to trigger a migraine for me, and i usually just avert my eyes. another thing that is triggering for me while driving is the sun flashing between the trees. it acts like a strobe light. as for fire alarms, the noise and the lights are triggering. although the lights are slow moving, they are bright and the noise is piercing, so it stresses my brain and can cause a seizure. road signs, usually not for me, because of how small they are and because of how slow they move. same for lightning storms. they move slowly. however, if it is an obnoxious storm, i cant look at it.
it differs from person to person, as all brains are different and have different triggers, but this is my experience.
