Uh, no. He didn’t become a pornstar. Steve Burns actually left because he didn’t want to make a career out of a Childrens TV host for the rest of his life. He wanted to pursue his musical career. There was also the factor that Steve was also starting to lose his hair and he didn’t want that to happen on a TV show..in an interview he stated he was starting to bald..and in the show he began to start wearing hats more and more until he finally retired from the show and let Joe take over.
Steve never “died”, became a “Pornstar” or went to jail for drug possession..again all rumor.. He’s actually doing pretty okay, he’s been in a few things since that time, even a Youtube comedy series called The Professionals.

A GIF showing what it’s like to wake up with sleep paralysis.
You’re forgetting the terrifying hallucinations
As someone who’s had sleep paralysis multiple times, let me tell you that if your mind has woken up and your body hasn’t DO NOT ATTEMPT TO OPEN YOUR EYES. Wake your body up first by slowly trying to move it, wiggle your toes and hands, then gradually work your way up until your body is fully awake. Opening your eyes when you have sleep paralysis is hard enough, but when you do there is a good chance you can see hallucinations like this.
I also have been the victim of sleep paralysis too many times, its bad enough without hallucinations, and so i thought i would add some info on sleep paralysis for anyone who suffers from it.
As Shada said, wiggling toes and hands are good ways to snap out of it, although other small body parts work, even humming/talking (although things related to breathing might be more difficult). Just FOCUS on one part, its hard to regain control, but easy to become paralyzed again.
Once you can move again, dont go right back to sleep, you might get paralyzed again. Or have the worst dreams of your life. Turn on a light, do something relaxing, like reading a book. Its been said that looking at a light before sleeping can prevent sleep paralysis.
Sleeping on your back rises the chances of you getting sleep paralysis. If you get it a lot, pay attention to what position you are in when it occurs.
Hallucinations, the best part, arent just things like in the gif above. They could be anything from just dark shapes floating around, to scary monsters and demons to sounds and feeling like something is shaking/touching you. I’ve had an experience where it felt like my bed was shaking while a metallic screeching sound roared whenever i tried to breath. Solution? ignore it. Its all you can do. Hallucinations cant actually do anything to you, and you cant move again if you’re being distracted. And once the paralysis is gone, so are the hallucinations.
Most people dont really have to worry, they will only get it once or twice in their life. Maybe not even ever! :D
listen to the person above when they say you should NOT open your eyes, because chances that you’ll see something that is uniquely terrifying to you are strong. and if it’s really bad, you might even start seeing scary shit even when your eyes are closed
my tip is to imagine the most ridiculous image/scene ever and keep replaying it in your head, over and over again, like robert downey jr butt naked or hugh dancy being confronted by police for taking pictures of airport carpets, etcetera etcetera
trust me. it works
reblogging because this is important and because you mentioned Hugh Dancy and his ridiculous airport carpet obsession
No but really sleep paralysis is fucking terrifying. This is excellent advise I must keep in mind.
I’m so glad i know what this is now . I’ve had sleep paralysis atleast 7 times. The first time I had it I was under blankets and I couldn’t move my body and it felt like some one was cradling me to their chest and rocking my body . Scared the crap out of me, for the longest time i thought my room was haunted.
I’m totally trying these next time i get it thank you :)
They need to teach this to young children, because I had this problem mostly when I was very young, and I was scared it meant something was wrong with me. Or worse, that monsters were real. I used to open my eyes, not knowing it was a bad idea, and I would see what looked like something crawling up toward my head under the covers, and I could feel it moving, too. Most terrifying thing ever.
I haven’t tried all of these, so I can’t vouch. I know for my tuna salad that I make I do a mix of olive oil and mustard instead of mayo, but I don’t know in what universe Mustart is a straight up alternative to Mayonnaise.
For Salads, Avocado and Almonds are a great way to beef up the salad without adding bread!
