NuttierThanEver: Approximately 40000 children died in Africa last year due to measles alone

Sure, but I bet NONE of them got autism from thimerosol!

The Thimerosal/autism belief is a good example how people will continue to hold a belief, even after it's been proven wrong.

As someone who just is getting over Chickenpox at the age of 42, I can't tell you how much I am pro-vaccination, and how much anti-vaxxers make me want to jump on their throats until their heads pop off.

CSB: Sister had it when she and I were really young. Mom did everything to make sure I got it, it never appeared. Ergo, wow, Znuh, you must be immune. This was a wrong presumption.

Fast forward to 42 year-old Znuh, who visits Dad, who has a 'mystery rash' and refuses to see the Doctor. Surprise! Mystery Rash was Shingles; cue to a confused me wondering what that blister on my noggin is.

It's been two weeks, EVERYWHERE was covered, and yes, I mean everything, everywhere. The oatmeal baths, the incessant itching, the myriad of horrible pustules. I wouldn't wish it on ANYONE.

Mom's a former RN. The trouble with all you idiots is the quality of life is so damn nice now, that you're questioning things that were sunk deep into the ground that contributed to us reaching where we are, now. Things like vaccinations. Glass-Steagall. Taxing the Rich.

I've got a lion-repelling jacket; it works because there's no lions around. Just because something doesn't give a 'surface' appearance of doing something crucial, doesn't mean that it isn't. Stop ripping out the machinery that gave you such a nice today. The more you tug, the more we're rocked on a deeper level. We're all led through misery only so you can go, at the end, 'Oh, that's why we did that in the past'.

You farking anti vaccination morons.
