Real Heroes = Who is Edward Jenner a rant by Beardy

A man with real super powers


 Intro to all things BEARDY!
Lets begin with an introduction first!   Hi I am an old as dirt, comic jerk.  The Toylab crew calls me Beardy so CALL ME BEARDY.  I look like I belong on Duck Dynasty but couldn't shoot a gun to save my life.  After meeting the Toylab crew at their weekly Nerdfast meetings in Denver I began discussing with them the idea of creating my own damn blog.  But hell, that's hard for an old timer like me.  Instead they have graciously allowed me to post my rants HERE!  The following is a non scientific, anecdotally infused diatribe by yours truly.  If people like my rants I will post more and if you don't, well go F$&# yourself and have a nice life you F$#$ing A#$ hole.


Who is Edward F$%&ing Jenner

If you don't know who Edward F$#&ing Jenner is shame on you, you are likely alive right now only because of Ed's contribution to science.

Imagine Florence in the 17 hundreds, its a bustling place, full of people, culture, art, a generally awesome place.  Now imagine that those happy Florentines get exposed to Bubonic plague.  Now imagine that 60% of their population was dead within a few months.  Imagine as the survivors create mass graves where people are stacked in huge piles like human lasagne.

This is not a mental exercise, this actually happened.  This happened in Florence and all over the world.  A terrible plague hit and the population was cut in HALF.  Imagine that F%$#ing Sh#%!!!! Imagine half of your family, freinds, and co workers all suddenly dieing a gruesome death.  Boom dead.

This was a common occurrence in the world prior to Edward F$%#ing Jenner!

Edward Jenner improved upon the process of innoculation and created the Vaccine and proving out its success.  This contribution has an immeasurable change to the world.  Everything from age distributions, health, and population levels have been drastically altered due to the vaccine.

What Ed basically did was improve upon older experiments that took cow pox and injected into people.  The people did not get sick, only a slight fever from the injection.  Ed than experimented and found that those people were immune to small pox. 

Ed thank you!

A Florentine chronicler relates that,
All the citizens did little else except to carry dead bodies to be buried [...] At every church they dug deep pits down to the water-table; and thus those who were poor who died during the night were bundled up quickly and thrown into the pit. In the morning when a large number of bodies were found in the pit, they took some earth and shovelled it down on top of them; and later others were placed on top of them and then another layer of earth, just as one makes lasagne with layers of pasta and cheese.
The accounts are remarkably similar. The chronicler Agnolo di Tura ‘the Fat’ relates from his Tuscan home town that
... in many places in Siena great pits were dug and piled deep with the multitude of dead [...] And there were also those who were so sparsely covered with earth that the dogs dragged them forth and devoured many bodies throughout the city.

Vaccinations RULE!
Finally i would like to bask in the glow of the power of vaccines over history and the extremely tangible evidence of their power.
