HOW CAN WE BE HAPPY ?
Once a group of 50 people was attending a seminar.
Suddenly the speaker stopped and decided to do a group activity. He started giving each one a balloon. Each one was asked to write his/her name on it using a marker pen. Then all the balloons were collected and put in another room.
Now these delegates were let in that room and asked to find the balloon which had their name written, within 5 minutes. Everyone was frantically searching for their name, colliding with each other, pushing around others and there was utter chaos.
At the end of 5 minutes no one could find their own balloon.
Now each one was asked to randomly collect a balloon and give it to the person whose name was written on it.
Within minutes everyone had their own balloon.
The speaker began— exactly this is happening in our lives. Everyone is frantically looking for happiness all around, not knowing where it is.
Our happiness lies in the happiness of other people. Give them their happiness; you will get your own happiness.
And this is the purpose of human life.
Measles has surged back in Europe, while whooping cough is has become a problem here in the U.S.
Childhood immunization rates plummeted in parts of Europe and the U.K. after a 1998 study falsely claimed that the vaccine for measles, mumps and rubella was linked to autism.
That study has since been found to be fraudulent. But fears about vaccine safety have stuck around in Europe and here in the U.S.
NPR maps the resurgence of preventable diseases due to public ignorance and lamentable misinformation about vaccines.

this is such bullshit
VACCINATE YOUR FUCKING KIDS
What’s interesting here is that somewhere along the way, people decided Autism is worse than some truly fucked up diseases. Vaccines don’t cause Autism, but, IF they did, there’s something clear and possibly disturbing being said about what people feel is the true worst case scenario.
But vaccines don’t cause Autism. So protect your kid. These diseases? Are supposed to be basically dead. We beat them. And some idiots still spreading this false bullshit about vaccines are ruining that.
The Whooping Cough resurgence is scaring the shit out of me. And that’s cause I am allergic to the vaccine for it.

Emilio “El Indio” Fernández Movie Posters
The Academy Awards is right around the corner, and so it’s appropriate to pay an early tribute to El Indio Fernández, the real life muse of the Oscar statuette.
Fernández’s storied life is reflected in these posters from a few of his most popular films in the ’40s.
