Do you know how to read, old man?

Frank DiSalle has again sought to redefine the word clueless:

Do you have any evidence that the reason these people got measles was because they, or their parents, believed there was a connection between autism and vaccine? Is anyone investigating the possibility that the vaccine was ineffective, either because of some defect in its manufacture, or some modern change in certain people’s physiology?

Yes, because these are all strong possibilities after the same vaccine has been used for fucking decades, idiot.

And WTF is an anti-vaxxer?

Someone who doesn’t like vax, obviously.

I used to live next door to a compulsive asshole who would not let a half-hour go by between the time his garbage was collected and he’d loudly bring the can back from the curbside to his backyard.

I didn’t think about him for a long time until today.

Funny how memory works like that.

Here’s the rules.

I’ll keep the post on the page for a week, and you folks vote.

The second part is, the first person to e-mail me the winner of the vote gets loverly California Valencia Oranges grown in my backyard.

The second person gets loverly California lemons, grown in my backyard.

You can see where I’m going with this.

Oh, and it’s Zython FTW today at Ollies’ place:

Why would you say they’re not governed by probability, then cite an example of how probability works?

Jeralyn slept through her science classes

Jeralyn banned me a while back, so it’s with some satisfaction that she demonstrated today she thinks having an active social life in the ’70 or her law practice makes her an expert on neurobiology:

If the meth high produces a memory, so would the meth crash, which is a very powerful and miserable experience. Who would seek to replicate that memory?

Because the meth is gone out of the system by the time the meth crash takes place, so the same memory formation biochemistry is missing.

And this is a member of our so-called ‘educated’ class in this country.

We might as well invite the Chinese to come over and hand them the keys to this country instead of waiting 20 years from now.
