Let me tell you a tale for a penny…
Actually, let tell you about another one of my all time favorite movies: The Devil’s Carnival created by Darren Lynn Bousman and Terrance Zdunich, the people who also created Repo! The Genetic Opera.
I don’t know what it is about these movies but I absolutely love them.
I was so happy when I heard that last year the TDC/Repo tour was coming to Sacramento, ON MY BIRTHDAY. I was lucky to go, I even had Terrance Zdunich sing happy birthday to me in between the movies.
Probably my favorite part in TDC is the Hobo Clown’s song “A Penny For a Tale”
This is like the cutest thing ever. It’s from the gif-set I reblogged.
Taking its first steps, and after successfully doing so, the chick goes “Yay!”
It’s so freaking cute.
Serenity: Unfortunately, I was not a senshi. Usagi is the first Sailor Moon that we have ever had. My guardians were my good friends. They were very dear to me, I’ll never forget them.
so someone once called my old english teacher immature (because at this point he was spinning around on a wheely chair) and he said:
“Yeah, but the truth is we never really grow up. We just masquerade as adults because that’s what we’re expected to do.”
and to this day that is the single most profound thing i have ever heard uttered by someone dicking around on a swivel chair
Anti-vax claim: Because most dangerous diseases have been virtually eliminated in wealthy countries like the United States, vaccinations have basically become unnecessary.
Debunk: It only takes a few cases for an outbreak to resurface in a population with low vaccination coverage. In fact, due to anti-vaccine paranoia, there’s been several measles (red) and whooping cough (green) outbreaks in the US recently.
Importantly, getting vaccinated protects those around us. A small number of the population are unable to be vaccinated (small children, the elderly), so their protective barrier is vaccinated people around them who stop the spread of the disease. This concept is known as “herd immunity.”
Immunise or die. There is no grey area.
Worse than that. For a lot of this stuff, if/while you yourself are healthy, it’s immunise or KILL.
