I ate an organic frozen pizza and then I couldn't stop counting toothpicks for like 3 days.

Well, people who eat organic food are usually insufferable assholes, so this seems legit to me...

desertfool: Shostie: "Hey, guys! Check out this thing we found on Reddit!"

Seriously.... I'm seeing more and more stuff that started on Reddit in the "News". It least it saves me from ever having to visit that site, but it's getting disturbing.

To be fair, it's io9 (a Gawker Media site); ALL Gawker Media sites seem to be "Hey, guys! Check out this thing we found somewhere else!"

It's like vomiting to let people know how awesome that steak was, and then pointing to where on the menu you ordered it.

It would be interesting to throw this up on a health conspiracy forum and watch how quickly those pseudoscience nutcases go all hard science and bleat how correlation doesn't equal causation...

desertfool: How many times have you seen on CNN or Fox or MSNBC them credit a Fark thread? But Reddit, it happens more than I am comfortable with.

It's worth it when they quote the comments though.

fusillade762: Are you feeling alright? That's the shortest post I've ever seen from you.  By a factor of about 100.

LAUGHTER OL this is because I was recently provided the vaccination which has caused to me the autism and the shortness of replies.

MaudlinMutantMollusk: wickedragon: MaudlinMutantMollusk: The numbers don't lie

But people love to lie with numbers.

Truer words...

People can only lie with numbers if the people they are talking to don't understand math, statistics and logic. Unfortunately, that is most people.

I dunno, if vaccines are so great, how come the manufacturers are completely indemnified against any lawsuits, including for wrongful death? And why did they have to push that as a rider on an unrelated bill? Also, why is it heresy to request double-blind studies on vaccines? What are the people who know these vaccines best, the makers, scared of?

Yes it is suspicious isn't it.  Vaccine makers know their vaccines cause side effects, including sometimes FATAL side effects and brain damage.  They know it so much a system (VARES) has been set up to report adverse reactions.  But has anyone ever actually heard of vaccines being changed because someone reported a reaction?  Nope.  Not a single ingredient is changed.  The report databses simply allow the vaccine companies to monitor parents who don't support vaccination.  Suffice to say I don't think they are monitoring them for benevolent reasons.

Uhm. Maybe I'm reading the numbers all wrong and stuff but WHICH increase in Autism?
I've been reading really hard on this now, which for me is going through two peer reviewed articles on it and they didn't conclude that there was an increase in Autism at all. Whats up with that?
Is Jenny McCarty ... wrong?!?
