JABS is down again

This is the funniest thing I've seen in ages. Anthony Cox, scourge of Cybertigger, points out that JABS, when it's down, actually gives you a useful error message.

As he says: "However, one has to marvel at the insight that the forum's software has, even when it is broken"

ADODB.Recordset error '800a0bb9'

Arguments are of the wrong type, are out of acceptable range, or are in conflict with one another.

/forum/forum.asp, line 330

Maybe you have to be a geek to find that funny…

No, not be a geek, just be familiar with JABS

Sounds like the forum software has finally reached it's bullshit limit.

Maybe the server runs an AI and it just gave up the ghost as it did not find any I anywhere in forum.

There is a brilliant table on DC's Improbably Science site detailing deaths from various illnesses pre and post vaccination (Post 37).

It is here:

Even the "worst" vaccination offers you a 94% chance of not pegging out.

This table should be engraved on every jabbophobes forehead.

Interestingly enough very few of these illnesses/diseases seem to have been cured by homeopathy. Odd that isn't it ?

As far as I can see from that table, just looking at measles alone there are 23 million people alive who would have otherwise have died, most of them I guess in early childhood.

What a fantastic thing this sciency medicine stuff is and in contrast what a complete bunch of absolutely moronic tossers the jabbophobes are.

Uhm, John....

That link doesn't go where you think it goes. I have a general idea what said table looks like though.

To quote a comedian I recently heared: "There's a new trend in new-age land. Using homeopathy and nutrition instead of vaccines. Experts predict this will soon be followed by another trend: Dying of polio."

I just tried that link and it seemed to work. Not sure what happened there.

There was a bit in the Guardian today in their "how to beat the credit crunch" section in G2. It suggested saving money by making homeopathic medicines out of distilled water. Thats it, nothing else, no additives or ingredients, cures all known ailments.

At least they were taking the piss.
