Apparently Christmas is a rare birthday. I wonder if it's a reporting issue or just that people don't want to have their kids on holidays. The opposite seems to be true for Valentine's.

And then there's the fact that September is one gestation period after Christmas/New Year's.

I don't actually think that she's truly to blame for everyone not vaccinating, but this is an "entertaining" site that tells how many children have become sick or died due to impropper or non-vaccination.

Disturbing, it's over 1000 kids.

The interesting thing that I read recently was that there might be problems with the Tdap vaccine. It's now the standard vaccine for Tetanus, Diptheria, and Pertussis replacing multiple vaccines that were used before. However, it looks like for pertussis, at least, it's much less effective than previously believed. Like you need to get a booster every three years instead of every 10.

  

Disgusting Excess

Here's the thing though, I don't know if these pictures of excess are actually disgusting or not. I mean, I kind of want these things. But I think I'd have better sense than to pay thousands of dollars for booze that you can buy for 10% of the cost.

I mean Patron Silver is only $50 in the grocery stores here. Unless I'm really missing something.

  

Top 10 Signs You’re Seriously Into Indian Cooking

  1. You can’t remember the English names for common ingredients
  2. No matter what someone asks you how to cook, 80% of the time your instructions begin with “Heat up a Tbsp of oil and add jeera. When they begin to sizzle…”
  3. You stop measuring ingredients when making roti.
  4. You say belan instead of rolling pin, tava instead of skillet.
  5. You no longer keep your pressure cooker in the back of the cupboard.
  6. You perfect that palm-to-palm flipping motion to knock excess flour off of your roti.
  7. You know what regions your sabzi’s come from, and you start cooking sabzi’s from places other than Punjab.
  8. The only time you say the word curry, it’s followed by “leaves.”
  9. You keep your seven most common spices in a masala dabba.
  10. In your mind, a complete meal consists of daal, a sabzi, and rice or bread.
