The Isolator by Hugo Gernsback July 1925 issue of Science and Invention. The Isolator was designed to help focus the mind, particularly when reading and writing. The helmet not only eliminated all outside noise, limited sight to just one line of text at a time, but it also pumped in oxygen. (via Kitschy Kitschy Coo)

So proud of my mother for doing her own research after I sent her that meme. A sign she hung in her car window.
Is this true?
Not only is it true, it gets worse. The Susan G Komen For The Cure Foundation has actually successfully sued “competing” charities, because (paraphrasing) their “message or branding was infringing.”
You read that correctly: they took money that people had donated to cure cancer, and hired attorneys with it, to sue ANOTHER group of people trying to find a cure for cancer, who, in turn, had to us their donated money to hire their own legal counsel to defend themselves.
Yeah signal boost because not enough people know about this and seriously FUCK SUSAN G. KOMEN THEY ARE THE ACTUAL WORST

Susan G. Komen foundation is bullshit and a perfect example of corporate greed. I do not nor will I ever donate to this asses.
