“Memes Aren’t Facts”

Small side note to non scientific fact-based communities: please inoculate your kids immediately; stop spreading the disease of idiocy

Idiocy is not a disease but a condition in which the intellectual facilities are never manifested or have never been developed sufficiently to enable the idiot to acquire such amount of knowledge as persons of his own age reared in similar circumstances are capable of receiving
– Jean-√Čtienne Dominique Esquirol
