Strangely enough, I haven't had the flu in over ten years either.
huh...
I get the flu once in a while, but I don't bother with the shot. As long as you don't spread it to other people, meh, that particular vaccine was intended for people who are unable to avoid contact for the duration of the illness, anyone else who is not at risk of severe complications from the virus don't benefit as much from it. The virus evolves too quickly, and since it's so infrequent within the population the immune system loses it's immunity after a while so it becomes redundant for many of us. I'm not a fan of unnecessary medications either, mostly because your body will build up a tolerance to many of them, and I'll wait until I can't live without it so I can live a bit longer.

Behavior and DNA sequences are completely different topics. I don't know why you're trying to compare the two.
Sexuality, be it homo- or hetero-, a not a factor of DNA. Neither is a learned behavior.
Hair color, skin, eyes, build, etc are based on our DNA.
Behavior, sexuality, etc are learned traits.
LOL...how does someone "learn" attraction?

The same thing happened to my new father in law and me, in construction.
Oops, I forget. Nowadays, in SoCal, it's no longer construction, it's construción.
OK, THAT's what it was. Not your dad. Got it. My bad.

Oh, I can't stand unnecessary medications. It's driving Americans medicinal drug addicts.

I have a buddy at work that swears by the flu propaganda bullshit. He gets the flu shot every year. And every year he gets the flu.

And I don't.

Pisses him off. He just won't listen to reason. He's addicted.

Gay sex is even more common in animals than homosexuality is. But both are pretty common.
You gotta give animals credit for not making up stories about omnipotent animal deities with a fixation about the sex lives of the given species in question.

First, it hasn't been demonstrated nor is there any evidence to support the anti-vaccer claims. Until you have evidence that actually demonstrates the vaccine "danger," there is nothing to address. That is why conspiracy nuts are a laughing stock.

Again, there is no evidence that vaccines are safe. Vaccines are known to contain heavy metals. That is reason enough to be weary about them.

Drug companies should not be allowed to advertise. People see these things, run to their doctor and beg for them, which the doctors are all too happy to prescribe because they get rewarded for prescribing it.

The flu shot is more dangerous than the flu. Latest finding show that it is only around 9% effective for those who would need it most.

Mercury is also in fish, and in higher quantities, should we ban fish? Of course this is all still a fallacy of equivocation.

I agree with this point, you also forget to mention that many doctors will take "perks" to try to sell specific brands. It's the case that all patients should be educated, not run with something they see, even if it's anti-medicine.

I got a flu shot this year for the first, and last time. Been sick all winter. I bought into the hype, and ended up really paying for it.

RR i heard THE FUNNIEST story today
can i share it?

ok, heres how it goes.
in a court of law in Flordia an atheist SUED religion.
yep, got a lawyer and sued religion.
His lawyer presented his case to the judge by stating that Christians had holy days but atheist had no special days.
Christians have Passover and Easter and Christmas
and Jews have Passover and Yom Kimper and Hanukka, but Atheist have nothing, no special days... and it isn't fair.
When the lawyer finished the Judge thought a moment and then stood up and slammed his gavel on the desk and said, "CASE DENIED"! the lawyer protested and said, "But judge WHY? it isn't fair atheists don't have a a special day."
and the Judge hit his gaval into the desk again and said to the lawyer, "Your client is woefully ignorant". Atheist have April 1st as their day.
cause Psalms 14:1 says " A FOOL hath said in his heart there is no God,...." so April 1st is april FOOLS day, there ya go, case dismissed!

HAHAHAHAHHAAHA! thats my kinda judge!

Having fear in getting hurt deosn't need to be learned.
Wanting a relationship with the same sex or opposite sex is learned.
Totally disagree. Not everyone is born with the same levels of testosterone or estrogen that might cause them to be attracted to the same or opposite sex. Hell some people are born neither male or female.
