Fun fact time:
This is called Orthostatic hypotension, it’s caused by a sudden fall of at least 20 Torrs (2,666Pa) in systolic blood pressure, or 10 Torrs (1,333Pa) in diastolic blood pressure when a person stands up from a sitting or reclining position
Hey, this is a really thoughtful suggestion, so thanks for that. We do post about current events, even though we don’t have a section for it on the blog. I’m pretty sure we’ve done, or at least reblogged a post on the Higgs boson (or rather the Higgs Field), and we’ve done at least some other current event posts.
But the main reasons we don’t (currently) have a separate “Current Events” tag are…
- Things in that tag would slowly become unfit for the tag as time progressed, so it would be a difficult tag to accurately maintain.
- Both of us are at college right now and it gets pretty hectic. We do have some free time, but when we do we’re usually too exhausted to put a lot of energy into this blog, which is why most of the posts are reblogs right now.
- Since most of our post volume is consisting of reblogs, the tag would be heavily composed of other blogs’ posts for a while, and tumblr is notorious for spreading semi-accurate, or twisted information, especially with current events. So it would be impractical to start that tag until we can make more of the posts for it ourselves because the amount of research that vetting other posts requires is comparable to the research we need to write them ourselves.
