MSDS Misuse Monday

So the plan is that this will be a regular ‘quick posting’ – in other words, any Monday when I have time for a blog post but not a long one will result in an MSDS Misuse Monday.

What this means is that you get a suggestion of what to make with a bunch of links to relevant Material Data Safety sheets.  Of course, those of you who are smarter than the entire global scientific and medical consensus already know what an MSDS is so I’ll need to ask for your patience while I catch the sheep up.  I won’t be long.

MSDS

Thank you, Wikipedia.

many people think that a scientfic consensus

Thank you, Logic Of Science.

 

Today, we’re going to start with an easy one – a particularly  flavourful cheese on toast.

Naturally, you’re going to need bread, and some cheese.   You’ll also want a bottle of smoky bourbon sauce.    Put cheese on bread and toast bread/melt the cheese under the oven.  Apply smoky bourbon sauce to serve.

 

MSDSes to read:

Yeast
Flour
Water
Milk
Buttermilk
Cream

And … you get the idea.

Polly Tommey won’t judge parents who murder their disabled children. That’s part of the problem

A random blog - run by an Autistic Against Anti-Vaxxers.

Brain Right BrainLet’s just jump right to the video clip. Because it needs no introduction, it is just so wrong:The speaker is Polly Tommey. Polly Tommey has a long history of bad autism advocacy. When people think of the autism parents who just do advocacy wrong, they are thinking of people like Polly Tommey. She’s been a voice in the “vaccines-cause-autism” movement for a long time. She’s worked with Andrew Wakefield (whose unethical actions in relation to disabled patients at his hospital lost him his medical license. To name one of his many failures). This in itself demonstrates bad judgement and poor reasoning. Recall that Andrew Wakfield fictionalized an account of a parent murdering her autistic child, framing it as an act of love.But the low point of Polly Tommey’s advocacy career came when she and Andrew Wakefield “helped” a family in crisis. They were working on a reality…View original…

So….this is the blog post that is homework from another disqus commenter.

A random blog - run by an Autistic Against Anti-Vaxxers.

So I was challenged to watch twenty videos on the #HearUs tag and things of that nature by parents of autistic kids because supposedly, the parents are the ones actually personally affected.  Logic would dictate that actually, it is the Autistic kids/autistic kids/kids with autism who are the ones actually affected but I digress.

Score at the moment:  0/20 videos watched. No, I don’t believe vaccines cause autism.

So the first one I have chosen to watch is a woman called Gladys or at least, called Gladys for the purpose of this case study.   Name withholding for privacy reasons is a thing that is perfectly legitimate.  I do not know whether this mother did or did not.   I am simply saying that if she did then no blame attaches to this since claims stand or fall on their own merit.  So yes, I watched Gladys’ story.

So Gladys wants…

Quiz – Test Your Knowledge – Corrected

A new organization in Wisconsin has created a quiz to help test vaccine knowledge.

Unfortunately, the creators of the quiz appeared to have drawn on incorrect sources. To help set the record straight, we provide the correct answers, with references for further follow-up.

Still think that encephalitis and autism are the same? 3 of 3.

Well, they’re not.   Sure, the same body part is involved and both may involve certain difficulties in common.   But the fact is that saying encephalitis and autism are the same is like saying that a broken ankle is the same as a club foot – the same body part is involved and both can make you limp.  End of story.

And no, this isn’t comparing brains to feet – it’s comparing… well…comparing two diagnoses to comparing two diagnoses.  The issue is about the structure of the argument, not what the argument is actually about.
