Real doctors show us just how fed up they are on Jimmy Kimmel's late-night show.

"I cannot f*cking believe we have to make this PSA."

Jimmy Kimmel noticed something silly going on in California...

And he got serious about it. Well, as serious as Jimmy Kimmel can get.


It's true. And not just in California either.

Haha. That's funny. And obviously he's joking...

That part is no joke. Measles is back.

Interesting, Jimmy. But you're not a doctor!

He's not really a credible source on vaccine stuff, and he doesn't expect us to take medical advice from him. (That seems like a terrible idea, actually.) But he does wanna get doctors involved in the vaccine debate, cause, like, they go to school for this stuff.

So he invited a group of real doctors onto his show to talk vaccines.

Hear them out and decide for yourself! And apologies in advance if you haven't finished "Breaking Bad."*

UPDATE: The video made some people very, very angry...

...people who are against vaccinations, specifically (which there seem to quite a few of these days). There were tweets and comments and lots of Internet freak-out over what the doctors had to say about the vaccine debate.

Jimmy Kimmel got so much feedback, it prompted him to update his message.

Because of course he wants to have the last word. You can watch it here:

*You should still finish "Breaking Bad." It is soooo good.

In America, one dumb mistake can hang over your head forever.

Nearly 30% of the American adult population — about 70 million people — have at least one criminal conviction that can prevent them from being treated equally when it comes to everything from job and housing opportunities to child custody.

Twenty million of these Americans have felony convictions that can destroy their chances of making a comfortable living and prevents them from voting out the lawmakers who imprisoned them.

Many of these convictions are drug-related and stem from the War on Drugs that began in the U.S. '80s. This war has unfairly targeted the minority community, especially African-Americans.

Climate change is happening because the earth is warming at an accelerated rate, a significant portion of that acceleration is due to human activity, and not taking measures to mitigate it will have disastrous consequences for life as we know it.

In other words: Earth is heating up, it's kinda our fault, and if we don't fix it, we're screwed.

This is the consensus of the vast majority of the world's scientists who study such things for a living. Case closed. End of story.

How do we know this to be true? Because pretty much every reputable scientific organization on the planet has examined and endorsed these conclusions. Thousands of climate studies have been done, and multiple peer-reviewed studies have been done on those studies, showing that somewhere between 84 and 97 percent of active climate science experts support these conclusions. In fact, the majority of those studies put the consensus well above 90%.

Two years ago, a tweet featuring the invoice for a fixed boiler went viral because the customer, a 91-year-old woman with leukemia, received the services for free.

"No charge for this lady under any circumstances," the invoice read. "We will be available 24 hours to help her and keep her as comfortable as possible."

The repair was done by James Anderson, 52, a father-of-five from Burnley, England. "James is an absolute star, it was overwhelming to see that it cost nothing," the woman's daughter told CNN.

I live in a family with various food intolerances. Thankfully, none of them are super serious, but we are familiar with the challenges of finding alternatives to certain foods, constantly checking labels, and asking restaurants about their ingredients.

In our family, if someone accidentally eats something they shouldn't, it's mainly a bit of inconvenient discomfort. For those with truly life-threatening food allergies, the stakes are much higher.

I can't imagine the ongoing stress of deadly allergy, especially for parents trying to keep their little ones safe.
