Arguing, Ass, and Children: Camille Echols added 2 new photos. 22 June at 07:45. I've been relatively quiet on social media about the "Anti-vax" movement. I've seen smart-ass memes saying "why would my unvaccinated kids be a threat to your vaccinated kids if you're so sure they work?" THIS is why. There are people who cannot have live vaccines, like my daughter, who had a kidney transplant when she was 2 years old. She got one varicella vaccine but couldn't get the second because she was immunosuppressed and instead of developing immunity, she would have contracted the virus. She was exposed to a child with chickenpox this weekend and now we are in the ER. She's getting labwork, injections of immunoglobulin and then we have to wait to see what the infectious disease doctor says. The incubation period of chicken pox is 7-21 days. So even with all we are doing, she could still become sick in the next 3 weeks. And that would mean an automatic admission to the hospital for IV antiviral meds. She could become very, very sick from this. Please, if you are someone who believes your child will get autism from vaccines, PLEASE educate yourself. There isn't a single peer reviewed study that came to that conclusion. And the people choosing to skip vaccinations put children like my daughter at risk. She has been through SO much already. And this was avoidable. so Let me address the recurring questions: 01 contacted her transplant nephrologist regarding her exposure, who in turn consulted with the infectious disease team at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta and their solid organ transplant PharmD. It was the team's recommendation that I take Ashley to the ER to receive VZIG, which costs approx $5k and cannot be given outpatient. Titers were drawn prior to giving her VZIG. I never claimed that the child with chicken pox was not vaccinated. That is irrelevant. The resurgence of chicken pox, whooping cough, measles and other diseases that were nearly eradicated years ago is a direct result of a large percentage of the population deciding not to vaccinate their children without sound research the support that decision. As for those telling me to "educate myself," I am a pediatric RN with over 10 years' experience in transplant and chronic illness populations. I have had extensive education regarding vaccinations. I would not post about something I was ignorant about. .Those saying "it's just chicken pox, she won't die," please educate yourselves on transplant recipients. There are millions of people waiting for life saving organs. With those numbers, the odds are good that someone in your life has been affected by organ failure. <p><a href="https://black-girl-against-feminism.tumblr.com/post/169858354764/keyhollow-hannie-mylove-keyhollow" class="tumblr_blog">black-girl-against-feminism</a>:</p> <blockquote><p><a href="http://keyhollow.tumblr.com/post/163004744915/hannie-mylove-keyhollow-hannie-mylove" class="tumblr_blog">keyhollow</a>:</p> <blockquote><p><a href="http://hannie-mylove.tumblr.com/post/163002583620/keyhollow-hannie-mylove-keyhollow" class="tumblr_blog">hannie-mylove</a>:</p> <blockquote><p><a href="http://keyhollow.tumblr.com/post/162999957525/hannie-mylove-keyhollow-hannie-mylove" class="tumblr_blog">keyhollow</a>:</p> <blockquote><p><a href="http://hannie-mylove.tumblr.com/post/162998925645/keyhollow-hannie-mylove-keyhollow" class="tumblr_blog">hannie-mylove</a>:</p> <blockquote><p><a href="http://keyhollow.tumblr.com/post/162992998800/hannie-mylove-keyhollow" class="tumblr_blog">keyhollow</a>:</p> <blockquote><p><a href="http://hannie-mylove.tumblr.com/post/162991317210/keyhollow-illogical-bullshit" class="tumblr_blog">hannie-mylove</a>:</p> <blockquote><p><a href="http://keyhollow.tumblr.com/post/162989996495/illogical-bullshit-anti-sjw-movement" class="tumblr_blog">keyhollow</a>:</p> <blockquote><p><a href="http://illogical-bullshit.tumblr.com/post/162896691742/anti-sjw-movement-violent-darts-techno-gal" class="tumblr_blog">illogical-bullshit</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a href="https://anti-sjw-movement.tumblr.com/post/162887992421/violent-darts-techno-gal-memehumor-mom" class="tumblr_blog">anti-sjw-movement</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a href="https://violent-darts.tumblr.com/post/162637546645/techno-gal-memehumor-mom-gets-real-in" class="tumblr_blog">violent-darts</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a href="http://techno-gal.tumblr.com/post/162609433406/memehumor-mom-gets-real-in-facebook-post-about" class="tumblr_blog">techno-gal</a>:</p> <blockquote> <p><a href="http://memehumor.net/post/162520438508/mom-gets-real-in-facebook-post-about-why-the" class="tumblr_blog">memehumor</a>:</p> <blockquote><p>Mom gets real in Facebook post about why the anti-vaxxer movement is so dangerous for her daughter.</p></blockquote> <p>Also, if you’d rather make dead kids than have the possibility of your own kid become autistic you are garbage</p> </blockquote> <p>Vaccinate. Your. Fucking. Children. </p> </blockquote> <p>Honestly, just vaccinate your children, for themselves and others around them like above.</p> </blockquote> <p>Herd immunity is a huge part of how we came so far as a society. Don’t be a fucking medieval asshat. Vaccinate. Your. Kids.</p> </blockquote> <p>Vaccinate your kids you stupid stupid people</p></blockquote> <p>No.</p></blockquote> <p>Then keep them away from the rest of us. I also hope you never have children, because that should be considered abuse.</p></blockquote> <p>I have children. They aren’t vaccinated. I wasn’t vaccinated. Nor were my brothers and sisters or cousins. Vaccines do not prevent diseases. Modern sanitation and plumbing. Every country that still has these diseases are the ones that are underdeveloped. They bring them vaccines and it only makes them sicker since their immune systems are already weak. I also know several moms who are nurses who don’t vaccinate.</p></blockquote> <p>Congratulations, you and yours may be the patient zero that will bring ruin and death upon a whole city, or more. </p><p>Modern sanitation and plumbing help. If you notice, polio didn’t stop being a problem until vaccines. </p><p>You have no proof for that.</p><p>I know several parents that swear by beating their children and using garlic instead of medications.</p><p>You’re increasing your and your kids risk of death, as well as the kids around you, by a lot. You are being protected by the very herd immunity you argue against.</p></blockquote> <p>Look up herd immunity origins. That’s not what it is. Did you know the polio vaccine is know the leading cause of polio related paralysis? Look it up. NPR article. Honestly there is so much to discuss I can’t even get into it. Just don’t believe what you’ve been told. The research and proof is out there. Look up the vaccine inserts themselves. If vaccines actually worked (which actually have very low success rates) and were totally safe- then I would be fine with it. But as it stands, there are way too many risks and not even discussion or concern for their safety. The vaccine makers don’t care if they are safe because they cannot be sued.</p></blockquote> <p>I know herd immunity origins. I’m a biologist. The basic meaning is when a majority of a group is immune to a disease, thus a disease is not able to spread efficiently. Vaccines work with your natural immune system. They create the antibodies just like your body would if exposed to the contagion. Vaccines aren’t magic, they’re a very dead very small amount of contagion. They are safe, tested with blood collected from horseshoe crabs, as their blood has special clotting properties used as its immune system in order to identify any other contagions, especially living ones, that could cause problems. </p><p>“On rare occasions, if a population is seriously under-immunized, an excreted vaccine-virus can continue to circulate for an extended period of time. The longer it is allowed to survive, the more genetic changes it undergoes. In very rare instances, the vaccine-virus can genetically change into a form that can paralyse – this is what is known as a circulating vaccine-derived poliovirus (cVDPV).</p><p>It takes a long time for a cVDPV to occur. Generally, the strain will have been allowed to circulate in an un- or under-immunized population for a period of at least 12 months. Circulating VDPVs occur when routine or supplementary immunization activities (SIAs) are poorly conducted and a population is left susceptible to poliovirus, whether from vaccine-derived or wild poliovirus. Hence, the problem is not with the vaccine itself, but low vaccination coverage. If a population is fully immunized, they will be protected against both vaccine-derived and wild polioviruses.</p><p>Since 2000, more than 10 billion doses of OPV have been administered to nearly 3 billion children worldwide. As a result, more than 13 million cases of polio have been prevented, and the disease has been reduced by more than 99%. During that time, 24 cVDPV outbreaks occurred in 21 countries, resulting in fewer than 760 VDPV cases.”</p><p>TLDR: People like you cause that polio shit</p><p>Vaccines are very successful. Find me a peer reviewed legitimate scientific study that states otherwise. </p><p>The vaccine makers can be sued and care very much, hence they reason incredible amounts of horseshoe crab blood is harvested every year to test batches. Vaccines are here to help you. It’s not a boogie man.</p></blockquote> <p>If you do not vaccinate your children, keep them away from the public. Just because you want your child to to die an early death, it doesn’t mean that we want the same.</p></blockquote>

Anaconda, Bad, and Books: REMEMBER Turn your computer off before midnight orn 12/31/99. BUY theangrymunchkin: musicalluna: cumaeansibyl: all-things-olicity: forloveofreason: shananaomi: jaybushman: spytap: ralfmaximus: faisdm: the-most-calamitous: jibini: top-lotad-breeder: chocogoat: what. why? someone pls explain to me pls i wasnt born yet in 1999 why turn computer off before midnight? what happen if u dont? y2k lol everyone was like “the supervirus is gonna take over the world and ruin everything and end the world!!!” This is the oldest I’ve ever felt. Right now. WHAT THE FUCK DO YOU MEAN YOU WEREN’T BORN YET IN 1999. Ahh the Millenium bug. It wasn’t a virus, it was an issue with how some old computers at the time were programmed to deal with dates. Basically some computers with older operating systems didn’t have anything in place to deal with the year reaching 99 and looping around to 00. It was believed that this inability to sync with the correct date would cause issues, and even crash entire systems the moment the date changed. People flipped out about it, convinced that the date discrepancy between netwoked systems would bring down computers everywhere and shut down the internet and so all systems relying on computers, including plane navigation etc. would go down causing worldwide chaos. It was genuinely believed that people should all switch off computers to avoid this. One or two smart people spoke up and said “um hey, this actually will only effect a few very outdated computers and they’ll just display the wrong date, so it probably won’t be harmful” but were largely ignored because people selling books about the end of the world were talking louder. In the end, absolutely nothing happened. Oh gosh. I’ve been a programmer working for various government agencies since the early 1990s and I can say with some confidence: NOTHING HAPPENED BECAUSE WE WORKED VERY HARD FIXING SHIT THAT MOST DEFINITELY WOULD HAVE BROKEN ON 1-JAN-2000. One example I personally worked on: vaccination databases. My contract was with the CDC to coordinate immunization registries — you know, kids’ vaccine histories. What they got, when they got it, and (most importantly) which vaccines they were due to get next and when. These were state-wide registries, containing millions of records each. Most of these systems were designed in the 1970s and 1980s, and stored the child’s DOB year as only two digits. This means that — had we not fixed it — just about every child in all the databases I worked on would have SUDDENLY AGED OUT OF THE PROGRAM 1-JAN-2000. In other words: these kids would suddenly be “too old” to receive critical vaccines. Okay, so that’s not a nuke plant exploding or airplanes dropping from the sky. In fact, nothing obvious would have occurred come Jan 1st. BUT Without the software advising doctors when to give vaccinations, an entire generation’s immunity to things like measles, mumps, smallpox (etc) would have been compromised. And nobody would even know there was a problem for months — possibly years — after. You think the fun games caused by a few anti-vaxers is bad? Imagine whole populations going unvaccinated by accident… one case of measles and the death toll might be measured in millions. This is one example I KNOW to be true, because I was there. I also know that in the years leading up to 2000 there were ad-hoc discussion groups (particularly alt.risk) of amazed programmers and project managers that uncovered year-2000 traps… and fixed them. Quietly, without fanfare.  In many cases because admitting there was a problem would have resulted in a lawsuit by angry customers. But mostly because it was our job to fix those design flaws before anyone was inconvenienced or hurt. So, yeah… all that Y2K hysteria was for nothing, because programmers worked their asses off to make sure it was for nothing. Bolding mine. Absolutely true.  My Mom worked like crazy all throughout 1998 and 1999 on dozens of systems to avoid Y2K crashes. Nothing major happened because people worked to made sure it didn’t. Now if we could just harness that concept for some of the other major issues facing us today.   this meme came so far since i saw it this morning. god i love tumblr teaching tumblr about history. As a young Sys Admin during Y2K, I can confirm that it was SRS BZNS.  I worked for a major pharmaceutical company at the time.  They spent millions of dollars on consultant and programmer hours, not to mention their own employees’ time, to fix all their in-house software as well as replace it with new systems.  Sys Admins like myself were continually deploying patches, updating firmware, and deploying new systems in the months leading up to Y2K.  Once that was done, though, the programmers went home and cashed their checks. When the FATEFUL HOUR came along, it wasn’t just one hour.  For a global company with offices in dozens of countries, it was 24 hours of being alert and on-call.  I imagine that other large organizations had similar setups with entire IT departments working in shifts to monitor everything.  Everyone was on a hair trigger, too, so the slightest problem caused ALL HANDS ON DECK pages to go out. Yes, we had pagers. For hard numbers IDC’s 2006 calculation put the total US cost of remediation, before and after, at $147 billion - that’s in 1999 dollars.  That paid for an army of programmers, including calling up retired grandparents from the senior center because COBOL and FORTRAN apps from the ‘60s needed fixing. Also note that there were some problems, including $13 billion in remediation included in the figure above.  Some of these involved nuclear power plants, medical equipment, and “a customer at a New York State video rental store had a bill for $91,250, the cost of renting the movie ‘The General’s Daughter’ for 100 years.” Y2K was anything but nothing. @figure-forever tfw you do your job so fucking well that everyone thinks you weren’t necessary in the first place :( salute our COBOL cowpokes and other Y2K wranglers, they saved all our asses another important lesson we learned: a shitload of stuff in the ‘90s was still running programs from the ‘60s and ‘70s. it’s hard to justify the expense and trouble of a massive upgrade when things are working “fine” – easier to say “well, I suppose we’ll need to change at some point, but not now” and if things really are working “fine” you can let them go on for a while but every so often you run into something like Y2K where the software simply wasn’t designed to handle certain eventualities. can’t really blame the programmers, either. if you were writing shit in the ‘60s, would you expect people to still be using it in the science-fiction year of 2000? that’s not a real year! you might be dead by then! so, y’know, you don’t always need the latest and greatest for everything you’re doing – how much power do you really need for an inventory system? – but regular upgrades are a Good Idea nerds quietly saving the world. this is superhero nonsense i love it Y2K is a large reason behind the tech boom of the 2000’s. Think about it, tons of programmers and such suddenly in demand? That “oh it’s ok for now, we don’t need to update” attitude thrown out the window? You get a turn from the let’s keep updating what we have to let’s get something new we have to update less, except that doesn’t stop with a single new thing. It becomes a trend, oh you’re having that issue well buy this new one it will never have that issue, oh you’re having issue x buy this new version we fixed issue x as well as that issue, and so on. Not saying it’s a bad thing at all, just saying it really kick-started the hastened technological path we’re on now.
