Some pads have extra material on the sides (called "wings") that fold over the edges of your underwear to help hold the pad in place and prevent leakage.Some girls have periods with heavier bleeding, and others have lighter periods with less bleeding."If you don't know who Slenderman is, you're living under a rock," remarks one of the dozens of teens appearing in You Tube videos that are excerpted in Beware the Slenderman. The uncanny disconnect between what feels culturally ubiquitous on the internet and what is truly something everyone in the physical world knows about is central to the argument that many of the documentary's speakers make in one way or another: the internet has a unique ability to blur lines between reality and fantasy in the minds of children, even after the age at which those lines should be crystal clear. Emmy-winner and Academy Award nominee Irene Taylor Brodsky directs the HBO project, which follows the story of Anissa Weier and Morgan Geyser for 18 months, beginning with their arrests in May of 2014.
The teenage girls, Susana Cappello, Carolina Baigorri and Victoria Roca of Gulliver Preparatory High School, came up with this brilliant idea after Cappello heard about students being drugged at her sister’s college.
They wanted to create a way to test drinks on site without being too obvious and risk alerting the potential rapist.
Some pads are scented or come with a deodorant in them.
But these can cause irritation of the vagina or an allergic reaction in some girls.
According to statistics from the Centers for Disease Control, one in five women will experience sexual assault in her lifetime, and the Department of Justice has previously reported that 4.2% of victims receive date rape drugs.
To help lower the ridiculously high percentage of sexual assaults, three high school students have invented drug-detecting straws.
It's for this reason that Slenderman is often taught as a case study in the closing of the "Gutenberg parenthesis," a phenomenon named by Professor Thomas Pettitt of the University of Southern Denmark.
The Gutenberg parenthesis opens with the invention of the printing press — the advent of recorded language and discrete knowledge — and closes with the modern version of the internet, which, Pettitt claims, operates in the same manner as oral storytelling.
Victoria Roca, Susana Cappello, and Carolina Baigorri are all high school students from Miami who invented and patented a straw that detects date rape drugs.
