  • Study: Whooping cough vaccine fades in 3 years – “The whooping cough vaccine given to babies and toddlers loses much of its effectiveness after just three years — a lot faster than doctors believed — and that could help explain a recent series of outbreaks in the U.S. among children who were fully vaccinated, a study suggests.”
  • 4th grade Christian science book explains electricity – How could I not post this when Rebel 16 described it as: “It’s like a training manual for Christian Juggalos. “Fucking electricity, how does that work?””
  • Be a sexy hamster for Halloween – It’s that time of year again, when the latest batch of sexywhatever costumes arrives to make us wonder about the sanity of the people who design them.
  • On physicists and gravity – This made me laugh, like pretty much every SMBC comic.

      1. It actually sounds more like quote-mining some scientific literature for stuff that sounds imilar (but leaving out the boring or difficult to understand part where the literature actually continues to explain: fuckin’ electricity: how does that work).

  2. For someone who is more creative and artistic than I am, I have some suggestions: sexy bloody tampon, and sexy Jesus. Please do it this year while it will still be ironic, but who knows how soon these sexy costumes will be mainstream.
