Robert De Niro (not dead, just an idiot)

What the fuck Bobby, making shit films not enough for you now?


#2

Absolute ice burn by the writer to choose Meet the Fockers :joy:
Not a fan of “I guess” in a supposedly serious article mind


#3

It’s clearly quicker to draw up a list of people in Hollywood who aren’t idiots/arseholes/really terrible people


#4

It’s a snarky blog, it’s their house style.


#5

Oh I’m aware. State of that industry pal.


#6

Burn it all down.


#7

Might be wrong, but isn’t he usually pretty reasonable/lefty on things?


#8

Early Bananarama lyrics needed more work.


#9

Yeah, but anti-vaccination stuff is sometimes a feature of Lexit types


#10

What proportion of people know the ins and outs of the arguments, though.

Few, i’d suspect.


#11

When you realise you’re sharing a stage with a man spouting crazy shit.


#12

There’s a strong anti-vaxxer/pro-homeopathic medicine wing amongst the like of the Greens etc.


#13

Vaccinations have eradicated diseases like polio and saved millions of lives and there is no evidence they cause autism.

What other “ins and out” are there?


#14

Let’s wheel this old thing out again:


#15

Wellllllllll I’m 100% aware homeopathy isn’t medicine or real, but as a placebo I know it’s dramatically improved the anxiety of some people I know - almost completely. And I think if it works for something so completely personal/psychosomatic who am I to judge.
And then I wonder that if it does genuinely help people why couldn’t it be on the NHS, and then my mind starts boggling.


#16

Homeopathy for treating anxiety is not the same as vaccinations though.


#17

Oh sure, never said it was. Just that while some lefty loony lexity new agey types are dangerous some are more reasonable. Anti-vaccination is obviously horrendous.


#18

The placebo effect is a known thing though - and can be administered for a fraction of the cost, and a lot more safely than quackery like homeopathic medicine.


#19

*effect


#20

I’m sure there is although I feel homeopathy being so widespread might add to its placebo effect somewhat. I should add I don’t actually support it being on the NHS it’s just weird how humans work.
