  4. Microwave the soaking apples ntil soft, about 4 to 5 minutes. Drain the apples and then pat them dry.

For it begs the question, how did I ever find you
Drifting gently through the gyre of the great Sargasso Sea, Atlantic Ocean
You got me writing love songs
With a common refrain like this one here


few things make me as mad as people pushing the old “vaccines cause autism” nonsense (bonus rage points if they call autism a “sickness”)

and not only because it’s factually inaccurate, which it is, but also because it implies that dying from polio or something is BETTER than being on the spectrum (which, wtf?), and because it means we have to spend time refuting this crap instead of focusing on helping kids with ASD, and because it discourages people from vaccinating and thereby protecting their kids against actual illnesses which can kill you.

anyway, in case you’re wondering: vaccines don’t cause autism.
