Godwin's law - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

"Godwin's law (also known as Godwin's Rule of Nazi Analogies or Godwin's Law of Nazi Analogies[1][2]) is an assertion made by Mike Godwin in 1990[2] that has become an Internet adage. It states: "As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Nazis or Hitler approaches 1."[2][3] In other words, Godwin said that, given enough time, in any online discussion—regardless of topic or scope—someone inevitably makes a comparison to Hitler or the Nazis."

Oh, sorry about that.

Let's use Joseph Mengele instead.

Other common long term issues include lung damage, hepatitis, eye damage, SSPE (a long term 100% fatal condition)

So having the measles is not a minor issue, but it is also not a reason to panic. It is like a broken arm, it something to avoid but not necessary a reason to panic.

It should also be noted the people are very poor at assigning risk to common activities. Driving while fatigued or speeding is seen as having little risk because they are common practices, while flying scares some people.

I had the measles. And the mumps. And chicken pox. Unfortunately, it didn't keep me out of combat.

They aren't deadly you know (combat is...for some).

What's the cost of being off-school for a few days versus being stuck with a needle the size of the Empire State Building filled with yicky yellow stuff?

The Laws of Economics.

Opportunity Costs.

The money wasted on silly vaccines could be used for research for more important treatments or vaccines, uh, like, you know, cancer.

Economically...

It used to be that you had to get vaccinated to go there.

Now, you have to get vaccinated because they're coming here.

In droves.

Now, they're giving out drove shots.
