What does the dox say?

The other day, a friend of mine wrote a blog post about how an anti-vaccine Facebook page was taken over by someone who worked their way up to admin privileges, locked out all of the other admins, and then started posting goat memes, a practice known as "goating". My friend had been invited to take part, but by the time he took a look, the goating was well underway. All he did was write up a blog post describing what had happened, mentioned in passing that he had enjoyed watching events unfold, and giving a history of how goating started.

And for that, he was doxed.

Donald Trump's "Massive" Vaccines

This will be a very brief post. As I was reading Orac's post about Donald Trump's anti-vaccine musings, one thing kept jumping out at me. Trump kept talking about "massive shots" that kids get, going so far as to say that "tiny children are not horses". I get the impression that Trump has either never seen an actual vaccine syringe or he is so terrified of needles that when he did see one, his interpretation of reality was so warped he imagined it to be some huge monstrosity.

At any rate, I put this image together to illustrate what I think is going on in Trump's mind. Enjoy.

Oh, and as a side note, do you know how hard it is to find images of doctors practicing good hand hygiene by wearing gloves while administering a vaccine?
