Kirzania: browneye: Some women really, really, really, really shouldn't have children.

Especially those over 40 who have been on anti-depressants for the last 10+ years.


What about under 40, but on anti-depressants for 18 years?

Wrong.  Cures for autism include:
1) Counting boxes of toothpicks.
2) Driving in the driveway on Sundays.
3) Blackjack hustling.
4) Judge Wapner.

You forgot underwear from K-Mart


Is Kmart still a thing?

Satan's Bunny Slippers: khonshu: little vials of essential oils

Oh lawd, I have a "more than an acquaintance/less than an everyday friend" that, while she's amiable enough, swears by those silly oils.  "Rub peppermint on your stomach for upset, lavender on your feet for leg cramps" etc.  They're harmless, but I don't buy any from her.



My niece puts them in the candles she makes and sells because they smell nice.
She's not a flake, but she will take advantage of flakes by selling them over-priced candles.

Jail time for the the mom may not cure her of her idiocy. It may lead to an aggrandized persecution complex.

I went to go find the study but apparently there is a new one that ... it seems like they don't totallydisprove the first, but say "not as likely as we thought."

The initial study made sense and the TL;DR version was "rise in anti-depressants correlates with rise in autism." No one had done any long term studies beforehand...

A couple weeks ago or so we had an article on this exact same thing, but it was focused on the Facebook group itself. Now it's someone who read it and actually did it.

If he is autistic, I am ashamed to be included in a group that man-child is in.

Some of us actually do lead productive, quiet lives.

I've never been medically tested, but I probably score a bit off-center on the autism and Asperger scales myself.  Why yes, I do write software.  How could you tell?

Didn't you hear?  Asperger's has been "cured".  Now we're just on the scale.  An article:

Smelly Pirate Hooker: P\
Also, how about -- instead of acting like nothing can be done about it -- we start actually prosecuting people for disseminating harmful shiat like this, both products and the marketing. Telling people to poison their kids to cure autism isn't a First Amendment issue. It's enabling child abuse. It should be pursued and prosecuted as a crime.


I don't see why they couldn't get got for practicing medicine without a licence

Some parents of kids with autism are desperate enough to try something like this because they're overwhelmed and undersupported.  Some of them just don't have the critical thinking skills to see through scams like Miracle Mineral Supplement.  Other things may be going on.  Raising some autistic children is an exhausting 24 hour a day job.  I'd be looking for a miracle, too, after missing sleep all week just trying to keep the kid safe.

But I would laugh and laugh if they come up with a vaccine for it.

I don't think you could vaccinate for it, but I honestly believe that early childhood and prenatal vaccines may actually decrease the complications and severity of autism.  Childhood disease is really hard on brain development, and we already know that schizophrenia has both a genetic and an environmental component, basically you have the gene that makes you vulnerable to schizophrenia, and then your mother has a sever fever during pregnancy which causes the brain to develop wrong.  You need both those things together, and I would not be surprised if autism works much the same way.


Well, you could. And then you'd end up losing things like the theory of relativity, computers, or the theory of gravity, along with a good undiagnosed chunk of the arts and other fields. Autism benifits society, and our trend of punishing autistic people for being autistic is just barbaric.

"MMS is a solution of Sodium Chlorite, which is then "activated" with an acid such as citric acid to create Chlorine Dioxide.
Both of these chemicals are industrial strength bleaches and are commonly used in paper mills to bleach wood pulp.
i1.wp.comView Full Size
While it is a bleach and used for bleaching purposes, MMS advocates claim that it is misinformation and endangering lives to call it bleach.
Jim Humble himself, and other MMS advocates such as Kerri Rivera, suggest a range of ways to take MMS depending on the problem, often suggesting using multiple at the same time. These include simply swallowing with water or juice, breathing in the vapors, adding to a humidifier, applying it to the skin directly, adding to eyes, vaginal and anal douches, and IV (intravenously)."
