The Avett Brothers performed “Skin and Bones” on The Tonight Show!
50 Years ago today, The Beatles played their first live performance on American Television at The Ed Sullivan Show, with 74 million people tuning in.
Yes and No. If there were anything like enough people getting flu shots to approach herd immunity, then it would be a disservice for you to not get a flu shot. But that is in the case, so you shouldn’t worry about it.
Studies have been done in which large percentages of school children were immunized and it decreased the hospitalization (and deaths) of many older people. It turns out that immunizing children against the flu is actually more effective at keeping elderly people healthy than immunizing elderly people.
Two reasons for this:
- Elderly people have crappy immune systems and so the most effective way to keep them healthy is to prevent them from being exposed in the first place
- Children are DISEASE FACTORIES! They go to little communal disease-sharing facilities called schools and spread each-other’s boogers in their eyeballs because they are disgusting.
The moral of the story is…children kill old people.
