Vaccine Infographic by Leon Farrant.
I often speak with patients who tell me that they do not wish to be vaccinated because they do not see the point, that it is a farce, that it can cause autism (it does not), despite educating and informing them of the reasons behind it.
In the same way that people who did not grow up during the great wars of the mid-twentieth century have little frame of reference as to what the toll of total war can be, neither can a newer generation of people who have never seen the effects of polio, smallpox, and measles ravage humanity. For many people in the developed world, these are just distant, faded memories captured in the pages of medical textbooks.
I sincerely hope that the understanding of why we vaccinate does not become lost over time, that people need not fall victim to these preventable diseases; otherwise, the suffering, the challenges, and the research that went into developing these vaccines were all for nothing.

i feel like i bring this up a lot and no one really gets me - so i must not be explaining it well - but transportation is a huge factor in climate change and we need to move beyond this car culture to make serious, necessary reductions in the CO2 level in the atmosphere. however, with the way our communities are built, it is impossible for most people to do without cars - people need them to get to work, food, friends. drastic changes needs to be made in the physical structure of our communities to make them human-sized and not car-sized - to replace cars with walking, biking, and public transport. tackling climate change is a huge and complicated project.
tldr everything is fucked up and we have a lot of work to do(via voorwaarts)
An old Boston T map peeks out from underneath the broken remnants of a recent edition, somewhere along the Orange Line in May 2013. It’s interesting to see that while the two maps occupy the same physical space, their use of it is much different. The older, simpler map fills up its space with bold lines and large type, while the modern map is more geographically based and complex — with the addition of bus routes and the Silver Line — and the type on it is correspondingly smaller.
