finally, it has appeared on my dash
Well that was unexpected.
I was not expecting this
no one ever does
I’m fine with this. If it means said place is complying with the ACA instead of trying to get around it by kicking their employees on to the exchanges via cutting hours to part-time, great. Here’s two dimes.
Twenty cents for a bill of over $20. So that employees get health insurance. This is a fucking ADVERTISEMENT for Obamacare.
I WISH restaurants would put up signs telling me they’re giving their employees health insurance. “Ask our employees about how we didn’t cut their hours and now they can see a doctor and afford medication!”
there’s a news headline generator that mixes words from real news headlines and they are fucking golden
these sound completely legit
Can we get a link to the generator?! This is hilarious!
EDIT: Did some googling and I think this is it: http://www.headlinesmasher.com/generator
Currently being swamped right now but you view what others have gotten via the best headlines button.
ESPN killed a trans woman. And the author was told “eh, just don’t do it again?” by everyone above him. He still has the job he used to kill a trans person because killing a trans woman isn’t bad press.
I want you to understand this story. It’s here if you can stomach the…

This is the first meme of 2014
i want to cry
HOW THE FUCK DID I KNOW IT WAS GOING TO BE THIS SONG
The anti-vaccine panic is literally causing children to die. All because of some bullshit beliefs popularized by celebrities with no actual knowledge of science or medicine that vaccinations lead to autism, which is also horrifyingly ableist. You’d rather risk your child getting sick from a disease that should have been wiped out decades ago than the slight (and completely untrue and unfounded) possibility that they might become autistic? Wario will annihilate you.
Guys, theres nothing wrong with not being vaccinated.
Your body was made to deal with this crap.
You wont die of a cold.
You wont get autism if you get vaccinated, because it wont mess up your genes.
Its up to the parents and child.
Get over it.
You are contributing to the problem with that attitude.
Around 1300 people, many of them children, in the US have died to easily preventable illnesses such as measles. Over a thousand times more than that have become infected and possibly had to deal with lifelong medical consequences. Although there is a small portion of the population that is unable to receive vaccinations for medical reasons, as many people as possible should be immunized. When the bulk of a population is immunized, this creates what is called herd immunity. Herd immunity ensures that those who are unable to be vaccinated can still avoid contracting a disease, because all the people around them are immune and will not transmit it to them.
Herd immunity occurs when roughly 75-95% (depending on the disease) of a population is vaccinated. When parents reject vaccinations for their children, even if the child recovers quickly and does not suffer any serious medical consequences from a disease, they may transmit it to someone else (who might not be able to receive a vaccination) who will. When parents refuse to get vaccines for their kids, they make herd immunity impossible and contribute to the spread of disease and child deaths.
Chemicals are not inherently bad. Chemicals are in everything. Chemicals make everything. There’s chemicals in everything you use, eat, drink, wear, and touch. The majority of these are harmless to you. A vaccine created by highly trained medical scientists and researchers is not the same thing as a vial of battery acid, as many fear-mongerers would like you to believe. Anyone who refuses to vaccinate their child is endangering their child’s health, as well as the health of the people around them, and that is outrageous and unacceptable.
Reblogging this, because it seems like a lot of people don’t understand what herd immunity actually is or that some people can’t get vaccinations but would still like to prevent their children from dying of perfectly preventable diseases.
Hi guys! Degree level scientists here to tell you about a little something in our industry called “peer review”
Peer review is where you publish your research in journals to be analysed and criticized by other scientists. The aim is to find as many as possible errors with the calculation and cause discussion about its validity. This helps make sure that there are is no way that bullshit papers can become seen as valid science.
The issue here is that the media reported the contents of his paper before peer review could be completed. The report that vaccines cause autism blew up in the media, causing many parents to panic and bad things in general to happen. When peer review went underway, NOBODY was able to replicate his results, even when done with the exact same methods as the original paper.
Later on, it was found that the scientist in question, Andrew Wakefield, had a conflict of interests and was deliberately falsifying evidence. The sample he used was found to contain a large number of children already diagnosed with autism. It was also found that he had performed largely unnecessary and painful tests on the children, including Lumbar punctures (a painful procedure where you remove fluid from the spine via a large needle in your back) without permission from the ethics board.
To put it simply, this guy was a massive dick and, when he was kicked out of every scientific research group in the country, wasn’t missed in the slightest
One of my favorite people in the world has been in a wheelchair the majority of her life because she had polio as a child. She’s had idiots try and tell her that if she HADN’T been vaccinated, she probably would be fine…completely missing the point that THE VACCINE HADN’T BEEN INTRODUCED WHEN SHE WAS A CHILD. IT WOULD HAVE HELPED HER. Y’ALL STOP BEING IDJITS.
This post is actually really important. Please read it and reblog it.
