 Some of you are reblogging because you think its funny that programmers would talk to ducks. I’m reblogging because I think its funny picturing a programmer explaining their code, realizing what they did when they explain the bad code, then grabbing the strangling the duck while yelling “WHY WAS THE FIX THAT SIMPLE!? AM I GOING BLIND!”

AS A PROGRAMMER I CAN TELL YOU THAT THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT YOU FUCKING DO WE HAD TO BAN THE DUCKS FROM MY CLASSES BECAUSE EVERYONE WOULD FLIP THE DUCK OR THROW IT AT A WALL OR SOMETHING WHEN THEY FIGURED OUT THE PROBLEM IN THEIR CODE

My programming lecturer has a duck that he brings to the lectures on debugging. And people brings ducks to exams, since it’s allowed. Not as useful during an exam, but it does remind you to think through the problem as if you were trying to explain it to someone else. 
The exam invigilators always look really confused.

    The lie is over now.
    The truth is out.

    Its time to wake up and accept the fact that the people on the top, don’t have your best interest in mind. All they ever wanted, want and will want is money over your and your children’s dead body. Its Eugenics. Nothing new.

    Wake up and Care and Share before too late.

    you people are the reason why measles are back in new york

    If measile is back, then it should only affect those who aren’t vaccinated. But is affecting those who are. THINK.

    Vaccination doesn’t work, and even if it did… it only protects for couple years max.

    Don’t seek vaccination … but nutrition my friend. Nutrition is the true medicine.

    vaccines are bullshit and cause adverse reactions like death

    where is your proof

    hOLY FRICK YOU DONE PISSED ME OFF AND I DON’T GET MAD EASILY SO CONGRATS

    SIT YOUR IGNORANT FEARMONGERING SELF DOWN AND LISTEN UP BECAUSE THIS IS GONNA BE LONG

    THE HUMAN IMMUNE SYSTEM IS MADE OF TWO PARTS: THE INNATE SYSTEM AND THE ADAPTIVE SYSTEM. YOU NEED BOTH WORKING TOGETHER TO PROTECT YOU FROM DISEASES, BUT THE ADAPTIVE SYSTEM IS DESIGNED TO ONLY PROTECT YOU FROM THINGS IT’S ALREADY EXPERIENCED. IT CAN TAKE UP TO TWO WEEKS TO KICK IN AGAINST AN INFECTION IT’S NEVER SEEN BEFORE, AND GUESS WHAT FARTNUGGET YOU CAN BE DEAD OR SCREWED OVER FOR LIFE IN TWO WEEKS. BUT WHEN IT SEES A DISEASE IT CREATES MEMORY CELLS THAT REMEMBER THAT DISEASE AND CAN KICK IN IMMEDIATELY WHEN IT HAPPENS AGAIN, USUALLY QUICK ENOUGH TO PREVENT YOU FROM GETTING SICK AT ALL.

    THE POINT OF VACCINES IS TO USE A NATURAL BODY RESPONSE TO PROTECT PEOPLE BY HELPING IT DO WHAT IT DOES ALREADY. YOU USE ATTENUATED NONVIRULENT FORMS OF THE DISEASE TO PREP THE IMMUNE SYSTEM SO IT WILL REMEMBER HOW TO RECOGNIZE AND FIGHT THAT DISEASE IN THE FUTURE. THAT IS HOW YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM WORKS SO DON’T YOU DARE START CLAIMING THAT YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM MEANS YOU DON’T NEED VACCINATIONS. THAT’S THE ENTIRE POINT. YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM CAN’T DO IT ALONE. THAT’S WHY SMALLPOX KILLED 500 MILLION PEOPLE BEFORE VACCINATIONS STOPPED IT.

    VACCINES DO NOT CAUSE AUTISM HOLY FRICK THERE HAS NEVER IN THE HISTORY OF MEDICINE BEEN PROOF OF THAT AND I CHALLENGE YOU TO SHOW ME SOME. THERE WAS ONE DOCTOR WHO PUBLISHED A STUDY IN 1998 SHOWING VACCINES MIGHT CAUSE AUTISM. IT WAS FAKE AND PROVED WRONG OVER AND OVER AGAIN AND IT WAS DISCOVERED THAT HE USED UNETHICAL AND INVASIVE PROCEDURES ON CHILDREN AND HE WAS BANNED FROM PRACTICING MEDICINE. 

    THE DIAGNOSIS OF AUTISM HAS IMPROVED SINCE 1970. CORRELATION DOES NOT IMPLY CAUSATION. YOU KNOW WHAT ELSE HAS INCREASED SINCE 1970? INTERNET USAGE. MAYBE THE INTERNET CAUSES AUTISM, IF YOU’RE GONNA USE THAT LOGIC.

    AND HOLY FRICKING HECK EVEN IF YOU REALLY BELIEVE THE LIE THAT VACCINES ARE LINKED TO AUTISM, ARE YOU REALLY THAT SCARED OF AUTISM THAT YOU’D RATHER YOUR CHILD DIE HORRIBLY OF A COMPLETELY PREVENTABLE DISEASE THAN BE AUTISTIC

    THIOMERSAL IS AN ORGANIC MERCURY-CONTAINING COMPOUND THAT WAS USED AS A PRESERVATIVE IN VACCINES IN CONTROLLED AMOUNTS BECAUSE GUESS WHAT DOUCHECANOE EVERYTHING IN THE WORLD IS CHEMICALS AND THESE GUYS ARE PAID TO KNOW HOW TO COMBINE THEM PROPERLY. IT WAS NEVER SHOWN TO CAUSE AUTISM AND THE SIGNS OF MERCURY POISONING ARE WELL-KNOWN AND NOTHING LIKE WHAT PEOPLE ARE CLAIMING VACCINES DO. EVEN SO, IT WAS PHASED OUT OF VACCINES IN 2001. THE ONLY ONE THAT EVER STILL USES IT IS THE INFLUENZA VACCINE AND GUESS WHAT? AFTER A CRAPTON OF TESTS DONE BY PEOPLE SMARTER THAN YOU WHO ACTUALLY KNOW WHAT THEY’RE DOING AND HOW CHEMISTRY AND MEDICINE WORK, IT WAS FOUND THAT THE ONLY SIDE EFFECT WAS- WAIT FOR IT- SLIGHT REDNESS AT THE INJECTION SITE.BECAUSE AGAIN, THIOMERSAL IS NOT PURE MERCURY YOU ABSOLUTE TURDSTAIN AND IS NOT THE LEAST BIT COMPARABLE TO TOXIC WASTE. AND DO YOU EVEN KNOW HOW MUCH 25 MICROGRAMS IS? THAT’S 0.000025 GRAMS. GRAMS. THAT IS AN ABSURDLY SMALL AMOUNT. I CAN’T EVEN CONVEY HOW SMALL THAT IS. PROBABLY THE SIZE OF YOUR BRAIN.

    IM NOT TOUCHING THE BILL GATES THING BECAUSE I DONT KNOW ENOUGH ABOUT IT. SOMEONE ELSE CAN DO THAT FOR ME. OR YANNO YOU COULD GOOGLE IT AND ACTUALLY EDUCATE YOURSELF FROM OBJECTIVE SOURCES AND NOT SOURCELESS FEARMONGERING JPEGS REPOSTED SO MANY TIMES THEY’RE ALMOST COMPLETELY ILLEGIBLE.

    HEEYYYYYY GUESS WHAT ALL THE FOOD IN THE WORLD WON’T HELP YOU IF YOU’RE THROWING IT UP OR CRAPPING IT OUT OR IF SOMETHING COMPLETELY UNRELATED TO FOOD IS KILLING YOU FROM THE INSIDE OUT. YEAH MAN PEOPLE NEED FOOD AND WE SHOULD HELP MORE WITH THAT BUT YOU ALSO GOTTA PRIORITIZE THINGS THAT KILL SO MUCH MORE EFFECTIVELY THAN STARVATION.

    YOU SHOULD BE HAPPY THAT WE’VE GOT ALL THESE VACCINES NOW. PEOPLE WHO LIVED IN THE 1700’S WOULD BE CRYING TEARS OF JOY IF THEY HEARD THAT WE HAD WIPED OUT SMALLPOX AND POLIO AND WE COULD PREVENT ALL THESE OTHER DISEASES. LOOK AT THAT LIST. THAT’S NOT A LIST OF POISONS. THAT’S A LIST OF THE DISEASES WHOSE BUTTS WE’VE KICKED AND THAT DESERVES THE BIGGEST HELL YEAH IN THE HISTORY OF MEDICINE.

    EXCEPT NOW MORONS LIKE YOU ARE BRINGING THEM BACK. YOUR BIT OF NON-LOGIC THERE JUST PROVES HOW LITTLE YOU UNDERSTAND THIS. THERE’S A THING CALLED HERD IMMUNITY AND IT’S JUST AS IMPORTANT, IF NOT MORESO, THAN INDIVIDUAL IMMUNITY. SOME PEOPLE CAN’T GET VACCINES DUE TO HEALTH ISSUES. WE’RE PROTECTING THEM TOO WHEN EVERYONE ELSE DOES BECAUSE IT CAN’T SPREAD. BUT LET’S TALK ABOUT HEALTHY PEOPLE, SINCE THAT’S WHAT YOU’RE ASKING ABOUT. DO YOU KNOW HOW FAST DISEASES MUTATE? WITHIN LESS THAN FIVE YEARS FOR SOME. AND IT’S CAUSED BY A THING CALLED SELECTIVE PRESSURE. SELECTIVE PRESSURE IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU GET A TWO WEEK DOSE OF ANTIBIOTICS AND ONLY TAKE TEN DAYS’ WORTH BECAUSE YOU FEEL BETTER AND YOU KNOW BETTER THAN THOSE SILLY DOCTORS. WELL GUESS WHAT? YOU DIDN’T KILL ALL THE BACTERIA AND NOW THEY’RE FREE TO GROW AGAIN. AND SINCE THEY’RE THE ONES THAT SURVIVED, THEY’RE NOW IMMUNE TO THE ANTIBIOTICS AND FREE TO SPREAD THAT TO OTHERS. CONGRATS BUTTMUNCH YOU JUST RUINED IT FOR EVERYONE BECAUSE NOW IT’S MUTATED AND SPREADING AGAIN AND THE ANTIBIOTICS DON’T WORK. THE SAME THING HAPPENS WITH VACCINES. IF PEOPLE LIKE YOU KEEP AVOIDING VACCINES, IT GIVES DISEASES LIKE MEASLES A TOEHOLD IN THE POPULATION TO MUTATE AND SPREAD AND CAUSE ANOTHER EPIDEMIC

    VACCINES DON’T WEAR OFF AFTER FIVE YEARS I DON’T KNOW WHERE YOU’RE GETTING THAT INFORMATION BUT HOLY JEEZ IT’S JUST PLAIN WRONG. THE CLOSEST THING I FOUND ON GOOGLE WAS SOME CONTROVERSY ABOUT THE HPV VACCINE LASTING 6-9 YEARS AND EVEN THAT WAS UNDER SCRUTINY AND NOT EVERY DISEASE WORKS THE SAME WAY. SOME ARE FOREVER, SOME REQUIRE BOOSTERS, ETC ETC. I COULD GET INTO WHY BUT THIS HAS GOTTEN LONG ENOUGH SO LET’S BRING IT BACK TO PEOPLE SMARTER THAN YOU HAVE STUDIED THIS AND BUILT ON CENTURIES OF MEDICAL PROCESS AND THIS IS WHAT THEY DO FOR A LIVING SO I THINK THEY MIGHT KNOW A BIT MORE ABOUT IT THAN YOU

    P.S. NUTRITION? NUTRITION? I’LL JUST EAT THIS APPLE AND IT’LL FIGHT ALL THESE BACTERIA AND VIRUSES. OR MAYBE POTATO CHIPS CAUSE MEASLES. STOP AND LISTEN TO YOURSELF HOLY CRAP. 

    THANK.YOU.

    As a Biology major I was about to go into a huge rant but I’m glad to see it was already done :)

    Captain Capital Letters up there brings up some good points people, listen to them.

    I can’t begin to tell you how badly I wish I could just repeatedly reblog this until it spread across the internet. I will probably schedule it to reblog in the future for a few weeks but still. I want to put it EVERYFUCKINGWHERE. 

    As a biochemist I feel obligated to reblog this every month, so any of my new followers would know how vaccines work.

    As a microbiologist who spent last summer with fucking whooping cough because some jerk at the county fair didn’t vaccinate their kid, I feel the need to reblog this.

    Fun facts about herd immunity!

    In 1927, some baller scientists/mathematicians put together the SIR model for epidemics. Basically, every population has individuals that can be put into one of the three groups: susceptible (you haven’t got the disease but you could), infected (you have the disease and are currently spreading it to other people), and recovered (you had the disease and either got better or died). The flow of individuals from S to I to R was a pretty good model for how diseases could spread through a population—once S dropped to a certain level, the epidemic would stop because no one else could get sick. 

    Around the same time, doctors started noticing that diseases like malaria or measles would follow these strange cycles. For example, if you had a dry year and there were almost no mosquitoes (and therefore almost no malaria) followed by a wet year (hella mosquitoes and hella malaria), the resulting epidemic would be much more devastating than usual. That’s because taking a year “off” from the disease meant that a whole bunch of people were born who weren’t exposed to malaria and the S group would grow. Then, when people did get sick, there were way more susceptible people running around and it was way easier for infected people to spread the disease.

    But! If you got the S group down to a small enough size (not even zero!), you could prevent a disease from spreading, simply because it was unlikely that Joe Infected would run into anyone susceptible to his disease. The best way to do this is by vaccinating, because although dead people are pretty bad at spreading diseases in the long term, everyone would rather be alive and vaccinated. Thus, the theory of herd immunity was born: get enough people vaccinated that a couple infected people walking around can’t infect the people who are vulnerable to the disease. AND ANTI-VAXXERS ARE SCREWING IT UP. Now, someone with a depressed immune system might actually run into someone with whooping cough at the drugstore AND THEY MIGHT DIE BECAUSE OF IT.

    Vaccinate. your. kids. 

    I don’t usually reblog this stuff but, as someone with a shitty immune system, can I reiterate that this is important? And since everyone else has jumped on the vaccines, can I also reiterate that if you are given a course of antibiotics, FINISH THE WHOLE DAMN COURSE. If you don’t and what you’ve got mutates we’re all back to square one and suddenly a lot more people are susceptible! And the mutation can make it hardier, stronger, maybe even more deadly. We really don’t want that.

  6. Now I need a new tv show to obsess over. Damn The Listener for finishing. (Still impressed that Craig produced most of season 5.)

    Or I could go back to watching Lost Girls…

  7. I just finished the Listener and WHAT. WHAT EVEN. WHAT JUST— GAH.

    I NEED MORE. MORE. AT LEAST FIVE MINUTES. JUST- MORE

    This drives me mad. I used to work in a bookstore, and was talking to my coworker and he just yelled out “stop flirting with me!” at this ridiculous volume and it was humiliating because 
    1. I wasn’t
    2. I got in trouble for acting unprofessional 
    3. He embarrassed me in front of a line of people
    4. And he only stopped insisting that I was flirting when my boyfriend (who is now my husband) said, “dude, trust me, she’s not flirting with you” to him

    That asshole respected my BOYFRIEND saying I wasn’t flirting more than he respected me saying it and I was the one who was talking! The whole scene got me in trouble at work. And the most ridiculous part is we were talking about a fucking book. In a bookstore.

    One time, my ex boyfriend had a crush on some girl, and said that he thought he might have “a chance” with her.

    When I asked him what made him think that, he said “Well, she talks to me.”

    And this is why it is so difficult to be a girl and be friends with men who are attracted to women.

    Can we also add that this is why a lot of women do the resting bitch face when out in public. Cause dudes swear a glance or a smile is flirting.

    So yesterday something that perfectly illustrates this happened. I work at a fast food place and this guy comes in at 7am on a Sunday, still probably drunk from the night before, and when I smiled and said goodmorning he said “Did you just say that because you’re being paid to say that?” 

    I repressed my urge to sarcastically answer, and said “Nope, I just enjoy saying hi to everyone!” To which he responded, “Oh, so you weren’t flirting with me then.”

    Dude, I’m not flirting with your gross 7am-on-a-Sunday-ass, trust me.

    My defense mechanism when I’m uncomfortable at work is to smile, so I did that and said “Is there anything I can get you this morning?” to which he responded,

    "There, you just smiled! What does that mean?"

    At this point I was fed up, so I said, 

    "I smile at everyone sir, its just what I do. What can I get you, coffee, a bagel?"

    And he said “I’m gonna be watching to see if you smile at everyone. I don’t like it when girls lie to me” and then ordered a coffee and a muffin like he hadn’t just said something at 11 on the “Is this guy a serial rapist” scale (where 0 is ‘no’ and 10 is ‘Yes, run away as fast as you can right now.”).

    Then he sat there for another hour and a half, staring at me from his table. When he got up and left he came back to the counter, and said “You do smile at everyone. That’s fucked up.” and walked out.

    I can’t even be innocuously polite and pleasant to people at my job (where customer service is the number one thing we are supposed to be focusing on) for fear of this shit happening. What happens if he had decided to wait until my shift was over? 

    New Rule: If she’s at work, SHE’S NOT FLIRTING WITH YOU.

    Ditto the above. I used to have shifts in the mall I worked at during the same times as this guy over in a temporary stall. The second time he came over to buy something he bought an icecream (cheapest menu item), ate it, waited around for a good ten minutes, bought another, ate it, then started a conversation with me while I was cleaning the counter (and therefore not able to disappear into the kitchen). A customer eventually appeared, I served them (which took several minutes), went back to cleaning and the guy came back to try and talk again. I tried to hint that I didn’t want to talk, that I had work to do, etc. but I was still trying to be polite so apparently he didn’t get the message.

    After about 40 mins of lurking around our shop he asked me out. Thankfully when I said no he backed off rather politely, but I noticed him still staring at me from his stall the next week.

    a) I had only served him twice, b) I didn’t even know his name and c) he completely freaked out my co-worker who was younger and smaller than me and did spend the entire time hiding in the kitchen.

    Also: university.

    I’m studying Software Engineering which is a double-whammy of predominately male environment plus has the added bonus of a lot of group work. And I figure that, since I’m going to have to work with these people for 2-5 months I should do my best to be polite and helpful, etc.

    I’ve had more guys ‘flirting back’ to me in the last year and a half than in the rest of my life, and the entire time I’ve just been trying to not step on anyone’s toes.

    I actually got the stink eye from a female friend who apparently thought I was flirting with her male friend (note: friend, not boyfriend) when he ended up in my group for a month. I wasn’t. I am not trying to get a boyfriend, I am not flirting with anyone and yet by being polite and trying to get along with teammates it was assumed I was? I’m sorry, no.

    Politeness does not equal flirtation.
