Did you know on average the human body needs 8 positive touches a day to survive? This includes: hand shakes, a hand on the shoulder, a hug, a kiss. etc. So you people saying, people that are depressed are just upset because they don’t get attention, in a way, you’re right, when your body lacks positive touches it can stunt your growth and affect your mental and emotional development. Give a hug.

I’m trying to find this great graphic I saw ages ago about types of fanfic, where, say, the source text would be a continuous line, and an augmenting fanfic would be a line that takes off at at angle, or an AU would be a line separate from the canon line—does this ring a bell with anyone?
So, I need some help/advice. I'm talking to this self-identified Libertarian (young white college guy that I used to go to school with). I responded to that picture going around with the military people and the caption about how they make less than minimum wage but "you want fifteen dollars for putting a burger on a bun." I've already seen that too many times to laugh it off, and explained (perhaps a bit irritably) that the situations aren't the same and that minimum wage workers (cont)
(cont) just want a living wage and the ability to, you know, go to the doctor or buy their kid a new pair of shoes without going without hot water or food. Well, aforementioned Libertarian is the brother of the lady who originally posted the picture, and took issue with my post. Long story short, he’s made two major claims: That the idea that everyone deserves a living wage is “dead wrong”, and that raising minimum wage, and I quote, “has never improved quality of life for any group in the entire history of the united states.” I have, of course, requested some unbiased sources to support that allegedly irrefutable historical fact, and while at this point I would not be surprised at links to a libertarian think tank or a dismissive dodge, I would appreciate some sources to provide in return, or at least some advice on bowing out gracefully before I kick a wall and lose all hope for humanity.
I tag all of my posts about the minimum wage so that sources are easy to find for cases like this. Check it out!

Science has found that compressing the cells in breasts will decrease the chance of malignant cells growing in the tissue. So playing with boobs can help prevent breast cancer. So play with your boobs! Play with your partner’s boobs! It’s healthy!
In February 2008, a 37-year-old Swiss woman who had never been vaccinated against measles arrived in Tucson after a visit to Mexico. She developed breathing problems and a rash and went to a local hospital’s emergency room. They suspected she had a viral illness and admitted her.
Here’s what you have to know, to understand what happened next. Measles is extremely contagious; up to 90 percent of unvaccinated people who are exposed to it will get it. And if someone nearby has it, you will get exposed — because coughed-out measles virus can travel across a room, and hangs in the air for hours. The best protection against spreading measles in a hospital is putting someone in a negative-pressure isolation room, which is engineered so no air can leak out into the rest of the hospital. It took two days to get the Swiss tourist into isolation, because measles is rare enough in the US that it was not the hospital personnel’s first thought.
A 50-year-old woman who had spent an hour in the ER at the same time as the Swiss woman caught the disease from her. Patient 2 got taken care of, went home, and started feeling feverish nine days later. She had difficulty breathing and thought at first she was having an asthma attack, so she went back to the hospital and was admitted for two days. That she had measles would not be discovered until six days after that.
While she was in the hospital, Patient 2 unknowingly infected a 41-year-old health care worker who took care of her — and who was scheduled to get a measles-vaccine booster shot that very day, because the hospital was also caring for the tourist. Patient 2 also passed measles to an unvaccinated 11-month-old boy who was in the same ER while she was waiting to get checked for asthma, and to two unvaccinated siblings — 3 and 5 years old — who were visiting their mother on the same hospital floor after Patient 2 was admitted.
Patient 3, the health-care worker, passed measles to a 47-year-old woman in her emergency department — who later ended up in an intensive care unit with measles pneumonia — and later to a 41-year-old man in his home. Patient 4, the toddler, gave the virus to an unvaccinated 1-year-old while they were both in the same pediatrician’s office. Five other people were infected somewhere in their everyday lives: a 2-year-old boy who had never been vaccinated and who also ended up in an ICU with seizures brought on by high fever; a 9-month-old and an 8-month-old, also unvaccinated; and two adults, 35 and 37, who might have gotten one dose as children, but had no documentation of receiving a second dose.
Those 14 are just the confirmed cases. In addition to them, there were 363 suspected ones, and today’s paper makes clear authorities believe there were more illnesses than they know.
My daughter’s previous pediatrician told us that one person with measles in their waiting room not only could infect practically everyone else in the waiting room at the same time as the child if they were not vaccinated, but could also infect everyone who came into the waiting room for up to 13 hours after the child left. It’s extremely contagious and does not require direct contact. Just being in the same room as someone who was sick several hours after they are left is enough to get sick. And serious complications are not that uncommon.
So while anti-vaxxers are refusing to vaccinate their kids because of a side effect—seizures brought on by high fever—of the vaccine that is extremely rare, they put their kid, and any other unvaccinated kid, at risk of having the exact same complications from an actual illness where that complication is much more common…plus a ton more complications.
