Hardly news:

"Measles outbreak hits 21 states, District of Columbia, and is on track to surpass last year"

Praise the lord (god has a plan)!

Oh good! Another rearguard action coming up on EF. I've missed the "debates", a.k.a. banging my head against a brick wall.

Not strictly true; some people can't have the vaccine for medical reasons or it simply doesn't take, as in your case. That's why we need high vaccination rates to protect these very people. Anti-vaxxers are the worst of the worst; hateful, selfish, intellectually-challenged and over-privileged.

But they got rid of Osama Bin Laden, wasn't that worth the cause?

Re: Thanks anti-vaxxers, you twats

For a laugh, I checked out the Daily Fail article on this. The article wasn't too bad actually, but the comments...
Never read the comments. One was about vaccines containing glyphosate (wtf?) and the other that it was due to all the "shedders", because measles is a "live" vaccine, dontcha know? (wtf x 2). Oh, people.....

Shedders? As in people with a bit of dandruff, or people who are really into garden storage?
I always thought the second crowd were hell bent on world domination through hiding generations of tetanus causing rusty tools in places where children love to explore.

With the Flat Earthers, it's the other way round.

Best wind up on the internet!

I assume that's a (funny) Photoshop piece -- unfortunately.

But I do like these "related pages", from The Flat Earth Society's facebook page.

Here's another gem from The Flat Earth Society's facebook page; the world map as it truly ought to look. A couple of typos notwithstanding, I just love that they refer to the Northern Hemisphere.

That's an overall good thing. Genes of stupid people will not propagate as much.
