The Vaccine War… on the internet

I almost didnt watch FRONTLINEs ‘Vaccine War’ last night. I made it to ~5 minutes in, but then they showed a clip of this dumb woman (Jennifer Margulis? Ya I read her papers in Journal of Immunology all the time. Oh wait, shes not an immunologist? Shes just some random nutbar? Ya, lets interview her…

Abbies deep, dark secret: Dr. Who makes me cry. Every episode. Every episode I end up bawling for some reason or another. So I always watch it by myself, and I make sure to have some ‘Family Guy’ or ‘Mighty Boosh’ ready to cheer me up afterwords. One of the worst is episode 158, “The…

BOOBQUAKE!… FAIL.

Well shit. I went to sleep last night, happy as a clam cause my young girl dreams of destroying the planet and everything on it were finally about to come true thanks to BOOBS… And then I wake up this morning. And now Im sure we are going to have to deal with The Accommodationists…

Rule #34 D: BOOBQUAKE!

University of Oklahoma luvs Darwin!

Hey you remember last year, OU had all these super cool presentations by scientists and evilution-themed activities for Darwins 200th birthday and the 150th anniversary of ‘Origin’?

Bill Gates luvs Pam!!

So last night Im playing on the internet, minding my own business, and I stumble upon this video of Bill Gates giving a gushing plug for Pamela Ronalds book, Tomorrows Table! **HIGH-FIVE!!**

Our vaccines are clean

I dunno if you guys know how good we have it today with vaccines. Let me try this analogy– Lets say you want to bake some bread. You have a basic recipe, so you know you need flour, yeast, water, and you make some really basic bread. Except the bread that comes out of the…

LABORATORY #1– Dr. Myra McClure recently did an interview with ABC Australia on XMRV an what its doing in humans. You probably dont know who she is– shes just a normal scientist, like the thousands of others going in to work every day that youve never heard of. *shrug* Apparently we are supposed to believe…

I dont like the US Senator from Oklahoma, Tom Coburn (lol, like I ‘like’ the other one, LOL!). Generic humanoid that cares more about being a robot than contributing anything useful and good to this planet. But when someone is right, they are right, end of story. Tom Coburn was right in this instance (video…

HPV: Vaccine>’Natural’ Infection

Vaccines rock. So many diseases my mom and dad, my grandparents had to deal with, had to fear– I never have to even think about. Viruses I read about in books, like a 5-year-old reads about dinosaurs. And I really, really appreciate this fact. Nowhere is this appreciation more vivid than with the HPV vaccine.…
