Lemon juice works the same way, and can also stop flashbacks and panic attacks. If you can sneak away to a bathroom and take a quick shot of lemon juice, it can snap you back into the present. And hey, a squeezy bottle of lemon juice is pretty portable.

Hello Ye Cutest Arm Nubs Mcnubbycutes.
EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE OKAY.
Steven Moffat Appreciation
One of the most touching tributes to come out of the Doctor Who 50th special was the one to the fans through the character of Osgood. There, in the background of what was the most important negotiation in history, without anyone noticing, Osgood saved the world.
She could have easily sabotaged the Doctor’s plan by telling Kate to check her pockets, but instead of choosing to divide, Osgood chose to be kind. Becoming the bridge, the one who was willing to connect with what everyone had been so afraid of.
She had been neither cruel nor cowardly. And I think that’s why Steven wrote her in wearing the scarf. Because, really, anyone, anywhere, through kindness and courage, can be the Doctor. If that’s not the greatest tribute to the fandom, I don’t know what is.
Also - for those of you who are not aware#Osgood is the daughter of Sgt. Tom Osgood who was a UNIT technical officer serving under Brigadier Lethbridge-Stewart#Sgt. Osgood was called in to assist in the rescue of the Doctor & Jo Grant and with the Doctor’s help#he devised a way to get past the heat barrier surrounding them#successfully saving their lives#He later became a scientist advisor for UNIT - where his daughter followed in his footsteps.#Also like her father - Osgood’s first name wasn’t given on screen.
geografia is a product series out of Japan that employs geography, topography and the earth as themes. Their range of products draw on special processing techniques and printing technology methods. They aim to attribute a tangible shape allowing its user to experience information.
These globes start as flat packed pieces of die-cut paper board. Each one has a different emphasis in the information contained on the globe, affecting how you relate to it. Many are dual-language (English on one side and Japanese on the other) and also include information about the inner composition of the planet itself. Very fun to assemble, admire, and a nice gift for the map-obsessed.
Illuminating the Holiday Season in Japan
In Japan, Christmas lights, called “illuminations” (イルミネーション) in Japanese, go up as early as mid-November and can remain on display as late as March. Businesses, main streets and big parks go all-out with spectacular LED reveries and exquisitely decorated Christmas trees for passersby to experience. The illuminations play an important role in creating the festive and romantic mood of winter in Japan and they are more astounding with each passing year.
The Kobe Luminarie (神戸ルミナリエ) in Kobe, Japan, is one of the most striking displays every year. Kobe hosted its first illumination festival in December of 1995 in memory of the Great Hanshin Earthquake which struck the region in January of the same year. The Italian-designed illuminations were donated by the government of Italy, and the soft, solemn glow of the hand-painted lights became a symbol of remembrance and hope. The Kobe Luminarie was originally meant to be a one-time event but, with the strong request from local citizens, it has become an annual event now its 19th year.

Cast members who have played minor roles in the televised Doctor Who universe who have gone on to play major ones (and vice versa). No other show has as dedicated or rich a history of reusing talent, and it really wouldn’t be the same without it.
This doesn’t even include people like Lohn Levene, whose face was hidden when he played Cybermen and Yetis before taking on the recurring role of Sergeant Benton; or Naoko Mori, whose earlier appearance in Doctor Who was retconned into being Toshiko Sato, the same character she plays in Torchwood; or the dozens upon dozens of people who have played aliens and multiple one-off characters in a variety of stories throughout the show’s history, in both the classic and new eras (sometimes even both).
That would be nigh on impossible.
I have nothing against the goodness in the hearts of other people. However, I would like to explain how it feels to be on the receiving end when I am befriended out of the goodness of your heart. First of all this doesn’t a friendship make because…
Color me surprised! NOT!
