On Health Reports

Ugh. Health report on smallpox. Which leads to...

Daily Irony: In 1902, more people died from the vaccination of smallpox than the disease itself.

This is actually true.

HI SAM!
I hope you don't find this odd, Hannah B gave me a link to your site. According to her, we'll get along fine because of our liberalness? Yeah, k. It was nice getting re-acquainted with you on Monday (don't worry band is a lot more fun than drills) and I'll see you next Monday!

Anonymous said...

yes because liberals are always friends...?

that seems to be generalizing. it's like saying people with glasses get along. or people that like cats or something.

Jen said...

O_o ??? I'm not any anonymous at all.

Carissa who has a genius sister said...

my sister (emily) says that the reason that is is because the number of ppl who got the disease went down, and the number of ppl who got the vaccination went up. Also, i say, wouldn't some of the ppl who got the vaccination have gotten it neway?
