Great_Milenko: Don't forget the pro DDT crowd.


It makes it much easier to crack the eggs for your eagle omelet in the morning, I'm not seeing the downside.

rubi_con_man: Awesome. I look forward to competing with another billion people a year for work.


You have a job that a billion other people can do?  Have you ever thought of developing a skill, or are you just emotionally attached to that fry daddy?

I got a malaria on my pinky toe once, it wasn't pleasant.  I guess I'm immune now.  Most people get it when they're kids, and then they never get it again for the rest of their lives, but when I was growing up we were too poor to afford horse riding lessons, so I didn't get exposed until I was about 28 1/2 years old.  Now my favorite kind of cheese smells like soiled underwear.

Well, you have to admit that Jenny McCarthy's kid being stupid is an inexplicably extraordinary event, and requires an extraordinary explanation. I mean, how can such a thing have come to be?

HotIgneous Intruder: Aquapope: HotIgneous Intruder: More profitable to treat the disease than its cause, right?
Big Pharma: Always. Always turn a profit at the expense of public health.

A vaccination is treating the cause of a disease.  You knew that, right?

Vectors, how do they work?
Mosquitoes carry the malaria virus. Mosquitoes are the vector.
Letting the vector live is like telling people to stop washing their hands because we can treat their inevitable resultant sickness with a shot.
Which will cost money, I'd bet.
Step 3: PROFIT.


This just in: MALARIA IS NOT CAUSED BY A VIRUS

the way you worded that the vaccine kills 600,000 a year. Nice Comma usage.

I'm sure wiping out all mosquitoes would have no ecological consequences whatsoever and would be totally doable.

Does it turn people with traumatic brain injuries into homicidal maniacs?  No?  Please proceed.

What kind of work do you do where 600,000 equals 1,000,000,000?

I didn't need a malaria shot growing up and I did just fine. Why the hell should we give these shots to them? It'll just make them self entitled lazy brats.
