Q:Shut the fuck up about vaccinations. Not everyone has to have them, not everyone believes in them. Uneducated fuck.
You know, my homie and secret best friend Neil deGrasse Tyson said it best….
This isn’t an issue of belief or should even be up for discussion. It’s not a debate- like gravity or that the Earth revolves around the Sun isn’t up for debate. It’s a fact, whether or not you like it. Sorry bro.
And any ‘educated fuck’ knows that vaccines are necessary and everyone who can have them should have them.
Have a lovely day, sugar.
Actually there’s a lot of research and knowledge supporting the fact that vaccines are NOT necessary. It is simply another thing that today’s health system is super big on, just like hospital births and c-sections. And a lot of people actually have long term and short term complications from getting vaccines. Ahem.
Dang guys, you thought I didn’t check my activity log every now and then? Because I knew shit like this would pop up. And, I just finished my block exam and am feeling fiesty.
Actually you’re wrong. That ‘research’ is either completely fabricated OR grossly misinterprets the data OR uses shitty research techniques to get the data they want- all which are grossly unethical, in case you’re curious. I’ve got slides from a recent lecture on vaccines (aka why I am so fired up about this nonsense). You can check out the citations on each slide if you don’t believe me… something unsurprisingly missing from literally every anti-vaccine comment I’ve gotten and website that I have visited. Show me your sources, honey, and if you do, I will blow them out of the water because not a single one stands up to current scientific research standards.
There are however tomes and tomes of research for the safety end efficacy of vaccines. Don’t believe me? Look at a simple google scholar search.
So! Here we go!
Holy shit, it’s almost like vaccines SAVE SOCIETY MONEY. In fact, they give money back to society, along with the other programs indicated by red arrows. Which would be really weird for something that is just a healthcare fad like c-sections and hospital births.
And most people have no complications for getting vaccines, and if they do, most of them are short term. In fact, it is devilishly hard to prove an adverse effect was because of a vaccine. Why? Because it’s how we’re wired. We falsely see connections and causes where there are none (called a type 1 error; you are rejecting a true null hypothesis). People are more likely to attribute an adverse health event to a shot- even if that shot is the placebo and the numbers are just the background rate for whatever health event in the population.
And here is a graph showing the sample sizes necessary to prove that an adverse event is caused or related to a vaccine.
You know what, it was a really good lecture and I’m going to share more more relevant slides in case any one else feels like contradicting me.
These slides show the public health impact of vaccines. Note the differences between the historical peak and post-vaccine era deaths columns. Because saving literally thousands of lives is totally a conspiracy you should beware of.
And this is why herd immunity is so important! See how high it has to be for measles? Guess what we’re seeing outbreaks of thanks to anti-vaxxers? Don’t forget that one of the deadly complications of measles is SSPE.
Look how Hepatitis A infections in older adults when down after kids started getting immunized. Shocking! Could vaccines be… good for …. everyone????

Q:I read your Winter Soldier analysis, and I have a question : you say that "There’s a reason his code name is drawn from an investigation into one of the ugliest chapters of American history." Please help a non-American understand what you meant? I mean I obviously see the Cold War reference in the movie, but from what you've written it seems like something more subtle *within* the Cold War... shit, I mean just "Cold War" seems too evident and I can't find the deeper meaning?
Oh gosh, don’t feel bad, there are plenty of Americans who have never even heard of this.
The Winter Soldier Investigation was a 1971 veteran-organized media event intended to draw attention to the war crimes that had taken place in Vietnam. Directly inspired by the exposure of the My Lai Massacre (the mass murder of over five hundred unarmed civilians by American troops) in 1969, Vietnam Veterans Against the War (VVAW) brought together discharged servicemen from every branch of the military to discuss the atrocities they had seen and committed during their time in the war. They hoped bring these tragedies before the public eye, and to prove that American military policies led directly to the death and torment of civilians. Eventually a transcript from this conference made its way before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee during the Fullbright Hearings.
When Ed Brubaker, the author who wrote the original Winter Soldier arc, chose the name, he wanted something that would call up both cold Siberian winters and the atrocities of war. This fit the bill.
But the term itself, the idea of “winter soldiers”, was coined by VVAW as a response to the writings of Thomas Paine, who described the men who deserted at Valley Forge during the American Revolution:
These are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country, but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman.
A winter soldier is someone who will warm their hands over a meager fire and weather the cold. Someone who refuses to abandon their country and its potential, no matter what the personal cost.
So how’s that for a weird little twist? According to Thomas Paine—activist, political philosopher, and revolutionary—the real winter soldier is Captain America.

ITS FIVE YEAR MISSION
TO GET SPOCK AND KIRK OUT OF EVERYONE ELSE’S HAIR FOR FIVE WHOLE YEARS
SEND THEM WHERE NO-ONE HAS BEEN BEFORE; THERE WILL BE NO-ONE FOR THEM TO PISS OFF
MAYBE THEY’LL EVEN GET SOMETHING USEFUL DONE

HAVING THEM OUT OF THE WAY IS A RELIEF
Oka, I plan on following everyone on tumblr
Please reblog so I can make this happen
SIGNAL BOOST THIS THING!!!
well if this is true, you shall be the one who is the one who is the one t discover whether tumblr has a following limit.
i want to see if this will break the notes
There is a follow limit. Last I heard, it was 5000, but there was also a daily follow limit (100? )
The bomb is dropped
The kittens sort of soften the blow.
this is the shittiest post ever. please unfollow me if you agree with this post also shame on OP for using cute kittens for this garbage post
not sure what it is exactly that makes this post so shitty? Because it’s promoting actual equality? instead of saying that you can call everyone else shit because you are part of an oppressed party you can say you are equal to them doesn’t exactly sound like a shitty idea to me.
i love this.
The problem is that this addresses something that happens a tiny proportion of the time (people in oppressed groups thinking they’re better than their oppressors) in such a way as to equate it to something that happens practically all the time in our culture (the privileged treating the oppressed as inferior).
To equate these, even implicitly, is to reinforce the unjust status quo, and silence those seeking equality, all in the name of equality. Which, yeah, is a pretty shitty thing to do.
make him ursulaor maleficient
no he will be a pretty princess.
Maleficent will be GLaDOS. With a body that isn’t a potato, for a little time.
The Luggage and Lu-Tze are totally just going to be random side characters that derail plots.
hilariousaccidental pun in my history exam;
“Henry VIII’s marriage to Catherine Howard was cut short in February 1542”
I am a terrible person
No you’re not a bad person, that’s nothing worth losing your head over.
It was a decent enough pun, but a lack-luster execution.
Nice job, guys. I’m laughing my head off.
oMG WHAT IS HEIR?????
I’m never going to escape this text post
OH MY FUCKING GOD OH MY GOD OH MY- I AM CURRENTLY SHITTING ENOUGH BRICKS TO BUILD ANOTHER FUCKING ASGARD ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME
YOU GUYS OMG
RAGNAROK!!! IN THE LEGENDS THOR, LOKI, ODIN EVERYBODY DIES AS THE FIRE GIANTS AND FROST GIANTS FIGHT IN AN EPIC BATTLE THAT WILL DROWN THE NINE REALMS AND THEN NEW WILL RISE FROM THE SEA AND FEW GODS WILL HAVE SURVIVED
Thought you ought to know
oh for fUCKS SAKE SUPERNATURAL
By the way.
"Few gods will have survived" is true.
Thor is not one of them.
He succumbs to Jörmungandr’s deathly breath at the same time that the world serpent finally dies (presumably of blunt trauma, since the cause of death is fighting Thor). Well, OK, he’ll walk nine steps after he kills it, but since its breath poisons the sky it still kills him.
titan arum and rafflesia produce the largest flowers in the world and both have the nickname “carrion flower” for creating odors that smell like rotten meat so stick that on your head and crown it
I love the flower crown meme but this made me laugh so damn hard.
