I recently had to get an MMR booster shot, due to the fact that we have something of a measles epidemic going on around here. And the reason? Well, it turns out that all those scared parents in Europe who refused to get their kids vaccinated because they were afraid of autism-inducing jabs meant that measles there has reached something of a high. This, in turn, has lead to all of us getting it.

So thanks, worried moms and dads! You’re all responsible for an outbreak of a highly infectious disease in a country with high rates of immuno-compromised people. Congratulations on killing hundreds of people!
