There is a vaccine for pneumococcal pneumonia that keeps getting advertised over the muzak network at the King Soopers and Safeway.

Re: Antivaxxers

So I had an argument with my 'Homeopathic Practitioner' friend this evening who is, surprise, surprise, an anti-vaxxer. The 130 people who died in the Philippines 'died of pneumonia and meningitis.' Both of which there are vaccines for. And, if I understand correctly, both are more dangerous in peo...

Re: Familiar spirits

We had one of those that was activated by the pressure of the cat laying on it. They kinda liked it but they frickin' love the non-electric one that's a fuzzy mat with a thermal reflective layer sandwiched underneath.

Re: Recommend a good translation

The Fitzgerald was the standard when I read it in college. I recall it being pretty tedious, but I'm not sure whether that was Fitzgerlad's fault or Homer's.

I don't see what's anti-Semitic about "It's all about the benjamins, baby" (specifically in response to Greenwald's tweet) -- that's such a well-known hip-hop slang term for $100 bills (or large sums of money in general) that even *my* white self has known about it for years.
