I was vaccinated for polio and smallpox way back when in the '50s, and I've never contracted either disease.

I've never contracted either disease and I've never been vaccinated, what's your point?

Can some feminists please defend this woman and start a flamewar allready?

I mean, really. We got a psycho stabbing chick and people are talking about vaccines for farking sake.

As a result, their kids are as defenseless against smallpox as the first natives that greeted Pizarro.

U.S. natives born after 1970 were not vaccinated for polio. Notice how all the people older than that have that neat circular scar, and those younger don't have it?

It's also not always the parents.
The MMR vaccine is not routinely given to Australians. A friend of mine had all three diseases as an adult. The mumps may have left him sterile, as well.

/more proof that "common knowledge" is a misnomer

trezor: Can some feminists please defend this woman and start a flamewar allready?

Errr, how exactly? I mean, I'm a feminist...and I'd a run her biatch ass over about 75 times before the cops got there.
2005-06-18 12:26:20 PM  
Well geez...If he had the use of one hand, what did he need a girlfriend for?
2005-06-18 12:27:45 PM  
I mean really, go find some STAIRS and scream at him from the other side of them. No stabbing required.

Tactical positioning is underrated.

Oh nothing. Only possible way I could see this thread turn amusing. However unlikely that was to happen.

When smallpox was wiped out, relatively few people were actually immunized. What they did was do mass immunizations in the areas surrounding an outbreak, forming a firewall around the disease. The disease could still spread within that containment area, but soon ran out of viable hosts and died. So even though there were a ton of people without the vaccine outside of the wall, they were safe due to the containment of the outbreak.

Since nearly everyone born in the 50s and 60s was vaccinated, where could the diseases go? If there isn't an available host, the virus dies, so even when down the road there are a ton of hosts available that aren't immune, the disease is already gone. So the vaccine did it's job back then.

Besides the fact that the old vaccinations have worn off, the other problem is that Russia weaponized its stockpiles, breeding mass quantites of the disease and finding the most deadly strains. They may have also genetically modified the disease as well--smallpox is one of the easiest diseases to genetically engineer. Chances are that if the Russian strains were released in the U.S., it would blow through any new vaccinations.

If he wasnt in a wheelchair you might get some killer sympathy from the Uberfems. This seems inexcusable.

"Medina has a pending federal immigration case in which she's accused of illegally entering the country."

Wow. That's a shocker.

2 less illegals to worry about.

Man oh man... If there's one thing I learned from dating all the Latina women I dated when I lived in the barrio in San Antonio (broke airman in the USAF, base was, like most military bases, in the shiatty part of town) is to *never* piss off a Latina with a knife.

Sorry for the threadjack, but this little Russian news nugget is too good to pass up (with pics):

Some of the more humorous captions:
"A wet Moscow Lolita has just got out of the fountain"
"Hot Muscovites bathe in public fountains to escape from the summer heat"
"Now here are some schoolgirls who decided to undress and bathe in a
fountain, because it is very hot"

very hot indeed

My cats hate you right now Tupuli. In my case, however, you've won my undying gratitude. :)

Everyone is missing the point.

A cripple with polio was able to get a girlfriend and I'm not.

Ouch, dude. Have you considered therapy? Russian mail order?

Nope, Dworkin's dead. Her sorrowing widower is on an intergalactic cruise and is too cool to see you right now.

I bet he slept on his back to avoid penetration.

Never know, he coulda been a serious asshole.

/well, he hurt me initially with his words

This guy worked at a Mcdonald's in Bloomington. All the Mcdonald's in the area are having a fundraiser to send his body back to Guatemala because nobody else wants it or nobody else can afford it. I think it is still in the city morgue because there is no one to release the body to. They should pull a Reno 911 and Fed-Ex it back.

2005-06-18 03:37:17 PM  
So -that's- what happened to him.

Who knows, maybe he was asking for it.
2005-06-18 04:17:16 PM  
This guy and I had the same doctor here in Bloomington. I was talking to one of the nurses and she said "off the record" that he could barely raise his hand to mid-chest.

This biatch just wanted to kill him.
2005-06-18 04:32:28 PM  
wow a guy with polio in a wheelchair and the use of one arm has a girlfriend... and i dont...
2005-06-18 04:55:59 PM  
A diseased guy with one working arm in a wheelchair sounds helpless, but you never know. There could be mitigating circumstances.
2005-06-18 05:00:14 PM  
Shiv me up
here in my chair,
I ain't goin' anywhere;
Little `Lupe' don't you frown
Here's that visa that I found.

Tegucigalpa was your home
But you felt the need to roam
With that knife into my junk,
Pull it free
You know I'm sunk.

Mi uno buena mano
Wouldn't quit.
Like your dress,
It wouldn't fit.
Pick your panties
Off the ground.
Shiv me up
On my way down.

/Apologies to Mel Tillis
2005-06-18 05:02:08 PM  
Wow, good thing he conveniently left a note stating "Death to Lupe" before his would-be murderous wheelchair-powered rampage.
2005-06-18 06:34:17 PM  
The boyfriend in question.

I liked this better when it was called To Kill A Mockingbird, minus the polio.
2005-06-19 12:33:58 PM  
Okay, the feminists won't defend her....

Are any Hollywood stars available?
