It's time to end the IRS. It's just a bureaucracy and one we so not need. Replacement taxation system. It can happen. Email your congressman.

Vaccines and math. Good stuff to know.

My comment:
I know quite a few of the vaccine conspiracy theory crowd and am very happy to have this math based retort!

However, I can tell you this part is going to be contentious:

“Vaccines are really, really safe. None of the horror stories told by anti-vaccine people have any basis in fact. Vaccines don’t damage your immune system, they don’t cause autism, and they don’t cause cancer.”

Because lots of people do not trust the messenger when it comes to vaccine safety. You can point to all the studies you want, they will find where either the government or a big corporation has its fingers in there. Then they assume the data is manipulated for some devious purpose. Some people think vaccines are a massive profit center so big companies are manipulated data to cover up issues with them. Others fear the government wants to use vaccines as a way to give people mind control drugs (or other such things).

Others are just driven by fear and a ‘where there is smoke there is fire’ mentality. And its not hard to find smoke about vaccines as plenty of influential voices are spreading lies.

This paranoia is hard to overcome.

Cartoons in Support of Paris Satire Mag Charlie Hebdo in the Wake Of Murderous Attacks

In the wake of the tragic terror attack at French satire paper Charlie Hebdo, the media has had a range of professional responses. While some responded by printing the images of the incendiary cartoons for which the magazine was targeted — and indeed, view it as a necessary show of solidarity — others have opted for censorship of the images. We’ll update with more responses as they come in.

#CharlieHebdo #JeSuisCharlie
Publications have responded in vastly different ways in the wake of this morning's horrific shooting.

This is how to hire a bunch of quality code monkeys. But someone still needs to tell them to do the right thing. 
A way of killing creativity in software engineering or of weeding out code-posers?
