As winter storm warnings drop across the USA, better bundle up tight... because Bullet Sunday starts... now...
• Return! Dan Harmon is back to running Community after having been canned from it last season. And even though only two new Harmon episodes have aired, it's clear that the show is going to be as good as it ever was. If you're not watching the show... or quit after Harmon left... it's time to jump back onboard.
Just don't remind me that Troy only has three episodes left before his character is written out...
• Good Bye. Was really sad to learn that James Avery died this past week. Immortalized as Will Smith's "Uncle Phil" on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Avery was an actor who somehow managed to hold his own in scenes that would seem impossible to do so...
So long, Uncle Phil.
• Snack! ZOMG! THESE NEW SARA LEE DEVIL'S FOOD CREME CAKES ARE LIKE CAKE AND CANDY IN ONE! LOVE THEM!
And are as bad for you as you'd imagine them to be. Oh well. At least they don't have DISGUSTING LARD like Hostess snack cakes do.
• REALLY? Speaking of things that are bad for you... When it comes to stupid fucking idiots, it's pretty tough to top Jenny McCarthy. She advocates not vaccinating your child (based on bad, inaccurate information) under the guise of "saving children from autism"... but then turns around and glamorizes smoking and nicotine addiction with her Blu e-cig commercials...
For the children, I'm sure.
It's bad enough that her anti-vax idiocy is spreading illness and death... now she's promoting an unhealthy habit too? I'm guessing that whoring herself out for huffing gasoline is next. All she has to do is find somebody to pay her to make an ad for it.
And... I think I'm done. I'll just let that last bullet sink in a bit...
I love comments! However, all comments are moderated, and won't appear until approved. Are you an abusive troll with nothing to contribute? Don't bother. Selling something? Don't bother. Spam linking? Don't bother.
It’s a silly thing, but some people see e-cigs as a positive because they are healthier than regular cigarettes. Of course they are. So is crossing the street without looking each way. On the autism thing…I’m not informed enough to make a call. I’ve got a nephew that got really sick after his vaccines, but I don’t think anyone knows for certain either way on the subject.
Yeah, we kind of do. “Sick” is not the same as “autism”… and study after study after study after study shows that there is no link between vaccines and autism. But idiots like Jenny McCarthy (whose son, it turns out, DIDN’T EVEN HAVE AUTISM IN THE FIRST PLACE) are still clinging to a study done ages ago that has been debunked many, many times that says there is. For years Jenny McCarthy has scared people into not having their children vaccinated, which results in needless suffering and DEATH. And despite being confronted with mountains of evidence and having her crackpot theories thoroughly investigated and debunked, she IS STILL SPREADING THIS STUPID CRAP… AND PEOPLE STILL BELIEVE HER! I can only guess she’s in it for the money, like her e-cigarettes, because keeping the lie alive means she can sell more books and book more speaking engagements. What a wonderful human being she is.
I didn’t really get into it, but he also has been diagnosed as being on the autism spectrum as well as getting really sick right after the vaccines. I believe that those on both side of the argument are so firm in their belief as to not even listen to the other side. My personal take is that more studies need to be done. That’s all. I just don’t think we know enough.
The same take, by the way, that the CDC has. That there needs to be more research on the subject. They cite the study by the IOM from 2011 that stated “the evidence favors rejection of a causal relationship between thimerosal–containing vaccines and autism.”, but that more research still needs to be done in cooperation with various public and private entities.
(Some might take that article as the CDS covering their asses. That might be the case too. Or they could genuinely feel that, while the evidence available today refutes the link between the two, continued research is the way to go.)
Btw…I’ve got no real horse in this race. I think my nephew is fine. He seems a lot like me when I was young. Which could be telling.
McCarthy actually “reversed” her stance on vaccinations and autism this week. Well somewhat. She says she no longer thinks they cause autism but they do need greater research and oversight. She’s still a moron.
McCarthy is a harm to society. Or at least uninformed parents that took the medical advice from a Playboy Playmate. I do admit that she makes a good guest on Howard Stern. But all entertainment aside, she’s a buffoon.
