    1. Why have shingles later when I can get mumps now?

      I had to get a titer a few years ago and the results surprised me. I had to get the MMR again–this was for entrance into ASU.
      [Jokes go here..]

  1. the families called the legislation "draconian," with one protester claiming that lawmakers supporting the bill are "brainwashed."

    Big Immunity!

          1. I have not. There's a few similar the last couple years according to the Amazon. May have to get a set.
            The librarians keep suggesting fiction to read and nothing really grabs me.
            By the way, guessing you've heard about these Jasons Sci dudes DOD don't want, but ENER does?

  2. OT: One thing I like about my morning covfefe shop is a number of pickers show-up in the morn. Today a fellow was toting an early 80s G&L (George & Leo) ASAT with the saddle-lock bridge and 3-bolt neck pocket. Whoot!

  3. FWIW:

    George Conway [ Mr. Kellyanne ] tweets : Deranged Donald is at it again…………
    and it's a trending hit. .

  4. One of these anti-vaxxer idiots showed up at the LA Times Festival of Books and asked a question (at an unrelated panel, of course.) She concluded her moronic comment with "if parents don't have a choice they will leave California." Sadly, I was the only one who yelled "GOOD!" but that may just have been because others were too polite to do so. Fuck the anti-vax crowd, and I feel sorry for their kids FFS.

    1. How much do I love this?

      I imagine a big seesaw, and at one end of this seesaw is on the ground with a basket half-full of big rocks in it. The other end of the seesaw is up in the air. It’s got a basket one-quarter full of sand. And some of us got teaspoons, and we’re trying to fill up sand. A lot of people are laughing at us, and they say, “Ah, people like you have been trying to do that for thousands of years, and it’s leaking out as fast as you’re putting it in.” But we’re saying, “We’re getting more people with teaspoons all the time.” And we think, “One of these years, you’ll see that whole seesaw go zooop in the other direction.” And people will say, “Gee, how did it happen so suddenly?” Us and all our little teaspoons.

      1. Serious meso cell just blew through here, went from dead calm to screaming sideways wind, rain and hail in seconds, ripping leaves and branches off trees, then went to calm drizzle in 5 minutes. Surprised that didn't spawn a tornado, but there's bonafide ones walking around NE and SW of me. I think I'll wait a bit before traveling home.

    1. Hey, I just postcarded that area–PA 12 is having a special Congressional election, though the odds aren't good for Team Blue. But I hope everyone will be OK!

        1. I only had one fun and inspirational science teacher. He taught a few of us how to make LSD (relax, it was still legal at the time) and regularly set off fire alarms by burning stuff with fire. Good times.

          1. I've engaged in a few discussions, and it's pretty easy to see that there are some people still unclear about what it means to identify as a liberal.
