But no seriously guys, this is how (in my case at least) I ended up dying 8 yards of wool, 10 yards of silk, and 2 skeins of silk embroidery floss in a single day.

    You know, my homie and secret best friend Neil deGrasse Tyson said it best….

    This isn’t an issue of belief or should even be up for discussion. It’s not a debate- like gravity or that the Earth revolves around the Sun isn’t up for debate. It’s a fact, whether or not you like it. Sorry bro.

    And any ‘educated fuck’ knows that vaccines are necessary and everyone who can have them should have them.

    Have a lovely day, sugar. 

    Actually there’s a lot of research and knowledge supporting the fact that vaccines are NOT necessary. It is simply another thing that today’s health system is super big on, just like hospital births and c-sections. And a lot of people actually have long term and short term complications from getting vaccines. Ahem.

    Dang guys, you thought I didn’t check my activity log every now and then? Because I knew shit like this would pop up. And, I just finished my block exam and am feeling fiesty.

    Actually you’re wrong. That ‘research’ is either completely fabricated OR grossly misinterprets the data OR uses shitty research techniques to get the data they want- all which are grossly unethical, in case you’re curious. I’ve got slides from a recent lecture on vaccines (aka why I am so fired up about this nonsense). You can check out the citations on each slide if you don’t believe me… something unsurprisingly missing from literally every anti-vaccine comment I’ve gotten and website that I have visited. Show me your sources, honey, and if you do, I will blow them out of the water because not a single one stands up to current scientific research standards.

    There are however tomes and tomes of research for the safety end efficacy of vaccines. Don’t believe me? Look at a simple google scholar search.

    So! Here we go!

    Holy shit, it’s almost like vaccines SAVE SOCIETY MONEY. In fact, they give money back to society, along with the other programs indicated by red arrows. Which would be really weird for something that is just a healthcare fad like c-sections and hospital births.

    And most people have no complications for getting vaccines, and if they do, most of them are short term. In fact, it is devilishly hard to prove an adverse effect was because of a vaccine. Why? Because it’s how we’re wired. We falsely see connections and causes where there are none (called a type 1 error; you are rejecting a true null hypothesis). People are more likely to attribute an adverse health event to a shot- even if that shot is the placebo and the numbers are just the background rate for whatever health event in the population.

    And here is a graph showing the sample sizes necessary to prove that an adverse event is caused or related to a vaccine.

    You know what, it was a really good lecture and I’m going to share more more relevant slides in case any one else feels like contradicting me.

    These slides show the public health impact of vaccines. Note the differences between the historical peak and post-vaccine era deaths columns. Because saving literally thousands of lives is totally a conspiracy you should beware of.

    And this is why herd immunity is so important! See how high it has to be for measles? Guess what we’re seeing outbreaks of thanks to anti-vaxxers? Don’t forget that one of the deadly complications of measles is SSPE.

    image

    Look how Hepatitis A infections in older adults when down after kids started getting immunized. Shocking! Could vaccines be… good for …. everyone????

    image

    Ahem.

    Anti-vaxxers are a danger to the world and we need to stop them tbh

    GODDAMMIT. I AM SICK OF THESE ANTI-VAXXER SHIT GOBLINS.

    VACCINATE THOSE WHO CAN BE VACCINATED TO PROTECT THOSE WHO LEGITIMATELY CANNOT.

    I DON’T GIVE A FUCK IF YOU THINK YOU’RE A SPECIAL SNOWFLAKE FLOATING AROUND IN YOUR SPARKLY CLOUD OF YOUR OWN SELF RIGHTEOUS FARTS THAT WILL PROTECT YOU FROM DISEASES LIKE POLIO.

    GET. A. GODDAMN. CLUE. THEN GET VACCINATED. VACCINATE YOUR SPAWN.

    YOUR BATSHIT BELIEFS ARE KILLING PEOPLE.

    In my opinion, refusing to vaccinate a child who can be vaccinated is tantamount to medical neglect. I am 100% done with being nice to anti-vaxxers. We need to bring back exiling people. Andrew Wakefield and Jenny McCarthy are the first to go.

    Welcome to forced injections, courtesy of your friendly neighborhood liberal.

    You’re goddamn right. Nothing says individual freedom like infecting newborns with measles because you’ve got your head jammed so far up your Ayn Rand-hypnotized, objectivist, unvaccinated butthole that vaccinations are suddenly LibertyStompers™ and therefore, causing an epidemic is no big — even though the parents of those too young to be vaccinated, or people who are immunocompromised don’t even get a choice about exposing themselves to harm from your special snowflake irresponsibility.

    So yeah, if it’s Typhoid Mary² or “forced injections,” roll up your sleeve, wankstain.

    TEAM FORCED INJECTIONS

    because really if you’re not on TEAM FORCED INJECTIONS you are on TEAM SMALLPOX AND POLIO

    that is not a cool team

    I’m usually in that 10% who gets ridiculous side effects without actually be permanently dangerous, and I still get vaccinated.  Because not being able to successfully grasp things with the arm of my injection site for a day is a lot better than getting tetanus.

    Also, there are legitimately people who cannot vaccinate and rely on group immunity, so if you choose to not vaccine despite being healthy, you’re not just putting yourself in danger, you’re potentially increasing the risk of exposing kids with cancer, auto-immunes, etc. to these diseases who have no chance to fight them off in the first place.  Maybe smallpox is no big deal to you, but I’m pretty sure it would flat out kill any of those immune-compromised kids.

Here’s some pictures of my Asajj Ventress cosplay from WonderCon! These are all off my phone camera, but I’ll have some really great photos to share soon from some amazing photographers!!! =D I was so excited to have finally finished this costume. It’s truly been a labor of love and I am so happy with how it turned out! I hope you all enjoy!

ahhhhhh, my favorite Star Wars villain.  This costume came out great!  I need to go back and finish mine, but the makeup is soooooo involved!

I’m suddenly struck with how if you remove the subtitles this just looks like a vintage anonymous hookup in a gay bar

with the subtitles it looks like a vintage hookup in a gay bar

And together they are entirely too cute.

steve, bucky and sam going out for early-morning jogs. every time steve and bucky pass sam, they yell “ON YOUR LEFT” and “ON YOUR RIGHT” respectively. sam gets increasingly frustrated. but after a while, steve and bucky realise they haven’t passed sam again, and he’s nowhere to be seen. and they start to get worried, fearing the worst, until suddenly they hear a shout “ON YOUR ABOVE, ASSHOLES” as sam swoops overhead, leaving them behind
