I could care less about the arguments back and forth about the flu vaccine causing autism (I don't believe it does personally from what I've seen). I abstain from getting a flu vaccine every year because I think it's retarded as fark to inject your body with a vaccine to a minor annoyance. Vaccines should be only for the life threatening or body crippling ailments, the stuff we got vaccines for as kids.

Just because they have a vaccine for a minor inconvenience, doesn't mean you should inject your body with it. I'll let someone else be the guinea pig.

First off, sorry for your loss. shiat happens and it's never good. My little Quinn is alive and well (and female, guess the name is multi gender) and vaccinated and while I dread the chance of an allergic reaction with each of my children I would do it again each time. They work, Allergic reactions / adverse reactions happen, and when they give you the odds they sound great until it's yours. So it sucks.

However, I'd take that odd with any of my child if it kept the much more larger odds of them dying by the things they protect against. They aren't million to one odds when you get some of the ones you're being vaccinated against, or the others.

You can go fark yourself for blaming Obama for this though, that's idiotic. Vaccines have been required by law for over 40 years, as I have them and I'm over 40 years old and to go to school in the 70s I had to have them. nixon was in office, he's a republican. It's his fault.

You do realize the influenza kills? That on average 200,000 people will be hospitalized every flu season? That in any given year 3000-50000 will die from it?

The flu is not a minor inconvenience, it is a major farking killer.

Only in the first world is influenza considered a minor inconvenience, and even here, people still die from it sometimes. It's actually a much more dangerous disease then the cute little nickname we've given it would seem to imply.

You can go fark yourself for blaming Obama for this though, that's idiotic. Vaccines have been required by law for over 40 years, as I have them and I'm over 40 years old and to go to school in the 70s I had to have them. nixon was in office, he's a republican. It's his fault.



For those of you who are new to the "Quinn on the piano" meme, here's the original thread. Here's a google list of some of the copypastas of the original thread. I think Quinn has so far been killed by lawn darts, drunk drivers, black feet, BBQ Gas tank explosion, and Kim Jong Il. This is the first time that I am aware of that Quinn has died as a result of Obama mandated vaccination,

Slaves2Darkness: CrazyCracka420: I could care less about the arguments back and forth about the flu vaccine causing autism (I don't believe it does personally from what I've seen). I abstain from getting a flu vaccine every year because I think it's retarded as fark to inject your body with a vaccine to a minor annoyance. Vaccines should be only for the life threatening or body crippling ailments, the stuff we got vaccines for as kids.

Just because they have a vaccine for a minor inconvenience, doesn't mean you should inject your body with it. I'll let someone else be the guinea pig.

You do realize the influenza kills? That on average 200,000 people will be hospitalized every flu season? That in any given year 3000-50000 will die from it?

The flu is not a minor inconvenience, it is a major farking killer.


You realize that the annual disease normally called "the flu" is actually gastroenteritis, and not influenza?

Slaves2Darkness: Anti-Vaccine quackary? Well duh you can't really expect much out of Christians, and most congress critters are Christians. I mean anybody that believes in magic has an inherent bias against science, so of course they can't be counted on to think rationally about vaccines.


DIAF you moron. Vaccinated populations as a percentage are much higher in Western (read: mostly Christian) nations.

It may not be clear to CrazyCracka420 or others, but healthy adults getting the vaccine greatly reduces the mortality of children and elderly, by making it difficult for the virus to spread.

You don't get the flu vaccine just to prevent a minor inconvenience to yourself, you get it to help the entire community.

Here it is. Somehow I'd missed all this the first time around.

Long story short: a thread on the Duggars losing a baby brings down the standard Fark-hate. Posts come in from an incensed Farker whose wife had lost a baby a few years ago, including a picture of the small memorial shadow-box (which contains, among other things, the remains). This post is confirmed real, and an unusually mean-spirited meme, even for Fark, is born.

Your housemate does not have the flu. Influenza is an upper respiratory illness, not a gastrointestinal infection. You use the term housemate, so perhaps you're a Briton? If so, then in all probability, he/she has rotavirus, since that is something of an epidemic in England just now.

Well then, once you've excluded that group, there's really nobody opposed to vaccines left, so...

Seriously though, I have heard the argument put forth that because vaccines have all but stamped out certain diseases, the risk of side effects is supposedly higher than the risk of not being vaccinated, so it's safer for the child to avoid the vaccine than to get it, despite the fact that not getting it increases the risk of actually needing it.

Autism: the role of cholesterol in treatment.

Cholesterol is essential for neuroactive steroid production, growth of myelin membranes, and normal embryonic and fetal development. It also modulates the oxytocin receptor, ligand activity and G-protein coupling of the serotonin-1A receptor. A deficit of cholesterol may perturb these biological mechanisms and thereby contribute to autism spectrum disorders (ASDs), as observed in Smith-Lemli-Opitz syndrome (SLOS) and some subjects with ASDs in the Autism Genetic Resource Exchange (AGRE).

Maybe the skyrocketing rate of autism coincides with the rate of pregnant mothers eating low cholesterol diets?

They don't give two shiats about children dying painfully of easily preventable diseases. The selfish bastards just want those obedient Oprah-watching herps and derps to go to the voting booth and push THEIR button, so that can sit in that comfortable chamber and collect all that PAC money, salary and pensions.

The first antivaxers are dead, most likely; it's hard to remember sometimes that vaccines have been around for over 200 years.

This presents a problem, because the originators of the modern form of the antivax movement likely aren't just making this crap up. The ones who did that were their forebears: what the modern antivaxers are guilty of is confirmation bias, not wholesale fabrication. This is unfortunate, because it means you can't just expose them as frauds: they actually don't know they're wrong. Instead you have to disprove the hypothesis, which is a much harder task.

Well, this guy won because he's got an R next to his name and his district is probably pretty red from years of gerrymandering.

Kucinich was elected year after year because he had a D next to his name and his district was in deep Blue urban setting until his district was gerrymandered out of existence.

I abstain from getting a flu vaccine every year because I think it's retarded as fark to inject your body with a vaccine to a minor annoyance. Vaccines should be only for the life threatening or body crippling ailments, the stuff we got vaccines for as kids.

Just because they have a vaccine for a minor inconvenience, doesn't mean you should inject your body with it. I'll let someone else be the guinea pig.

You are an idiot or a troll. The flu causes/contributes to thousands of deaths a year.

A whole "thousands" of deaths a year? My god, call the wahmbulance.

Hey only 32k people died in automobile crashes in 2010. Which is near the number of flu deaths. I guess we should call the whambulance for them too huh? Only a few thousand.

Idiot.

Any parents who don't get their kids vaccinated, short any valid and specific reason, should be treated like lepers.

That is all.

We did. Lots of safety features on cars these days.

Vaccines are like the airbags, seat belts, and crumple zones of your body's defense system. They won't stop you from dying if it is a severe enough incident, but on average, you'll be ok.

The Polio vaccine was once contaminated with monkey viruses because it was grown on monkey kidneys. The monkey virus SV40 causes cancer. 50 million people were potentially affected. Government has known about it and covered it up for 50 years

Vaccines are a good moneymaker for special interests. I would think that Republicans would be in the minority for this cause.

I'd be willing to bet that it's slanted to science hating bible thumpers who believe the Earth was created in 6 days. All of them are authoritarians which almost always equates to Republicans.

Does power lead to the kind of ego that causes you to exert your crazy beliefs on people, or is it the ego that drives you to power so you can exert your crazy beliefs on people?

Is there any way to force a modicum of humility on these farks?

We need a good plague anyways to remind people how farking good we have it right now.

I think a massive whooping cough outbreak would be great. It'd kill tons of babies and people with compromised immune systems, while not killing healthy adults.

Antivaxxers would be brought up on criminal charges. Vaccines would become mandatory, and herd immunity would be restored.

/shame we have to kill some people to make it happen but there is no other way to get it done.

First people take Babyquarium seriously, and now people are quoting Landover Baptist's website as factual proof of a Christian Church's position on anything. (It's a satire website. It's like quoting the Onion to say that America voted Kim Jong Un the most beautiful man.)

I got my Tdap and Flu.

I pass out when given shots and did this year as well. It's a stupid phobia I thought I had under control. Nope.

This year's one hit me hard. I was wiped out the next day, and my arm where the Tdap went was hurt all week.

Noticeably F.A.T.: CrazyCracka420: A whole "thousands" of deaths a year? My god, call the wahmbulance.

The point it that most of those deaths are pretty easily preventable. Sure, the flu might only cause 0.0001%* deaths in the US, but with a very small amount of effort that number could be 0.000000001%*. So, why the f*ck aren't people putting forth that effort?

/*Yes, those numbers are pulled out of my ass. The point still stands.

huh. Odd. The only antivaxxers I know are Scientologists. Every single Christian I have ever known vaccinates their children, is happy to go to doctors and take full advantage of medical science, and doesn't particularly have any issue with science in general.

Extremists and fundamentalists, on the other hand, regardless of what religion/school of thought they claim, "can't be counted on to think rationally about" anything. So I guess that puts you in the extremist camp, since you clearly cannot be counted on to think rationally about anyone who believes in a power greater than... you?

leviosaurus: For those of you who are newtboucher:
You can go fark yourself for blaming Obama for this though, that's idiotic. Vaccines have been required by law for over 40 years, as I have them and I'm over 40 years old and to go to school in the 70s I had to have them. nixon was in office, he's a republican. It's his fault.


For those of you who are new to the "Quinn on the piano" meme, here's the original thread. Here's a google list of some of the copypastas of the original thread. I think Quinn has so far been killed by lawn darts, drunk drivers, black feet, BBQ Gas tank explosion, and Kim Jong Il. This is the first time that I am aware of that Quinn has died as a result of Obama mandated vaccination,
