    For real. I really hope Asspenis is independently wealthy or at least owns his own dental practice because I'd feel terrible for his employer.

    Wouldn't the employer just contest it? Voluntarily choosing not to comply with work requirements...

    I know a guy who recently got fired for falsifying his vax card. Young guy, good job, family and a nice house, but a total dumbass. Now a few of his buddies at the same job are refusing to get vaxxed and will be fired as a result. These guys were already punching above their weight in these jobs, and they'll probably not see that kind of money, benefits, etc for many years to come, but at least they didn't submit to getting a vaccine!

    And they're going to blame Biden and the Dems for all of it, everything that has ever and will ever happen to them, without taking a good long look in the mirror. So much for personal responsibility.

    Overheard today:

    Omicron is right out of a lab, a stripped down version of Covid that has been modified to be highly infectious, relatively benign and gives your immune system a big boost against all known variants. This was all a test.
    You learn so much interesting shit talking to people.

    Some background.

    He was a plumber installing fire suppression and a Grizzly Bear of a man. Genial enough but not someone you wanted to start an argument with. His claim is that "they" have realized that the vaccine won't stop the experiment and it has gotten out of control so now the remedy is an engineered virus to enhance everyone'ss immune system. And this is just another way to confirm that they can now control the populace through the manipulation of virus. Then he started down the road of mind control etc.

    It was about that time my phone rang.

    Nice that phones can go off without making a sound these days.

    My wife has been implementing the suggested "but did they die?" to similar effect. So far 100% effective at changing the subject, in fact--downside is it seems the next subject is politics. I may suggest an earpiece so she can use the incoming call option.

    You gotta judge the situation but I just listen and then give a blanket, “Nope.”

    "For most of history, infectious disease has been one of the central realities of human life. Jared Diamond’s Guns, Germs and Steel (1997) is overly deterministic, but the basic point it makes about the importance of contagious illness to human history remains valid. The map of our planet was shaped by infectious disease: Cortés gets most of the blame/credit, but it was the viruses he brought with him that destroyed the Aztec empire. It’s not just in the past and at population-wide scale that such illnesses have shaped humanity. Both my parents’ lives were fundamentally altered by infectious disease. My father caught polio in childhood in Africa and spent a year in bed with a leg brace; my mother caught tuberculosis as a young woman in Dublin and spent many months in a sanatorium. Her fiancé, whom she’d met in the sanatorium, died. Stories like this were not unusual among people born in the early decades of the last century. One of the main reasons global life expectancy has more than doubled since 1900 is that we have vaccines against diseases such as polio and TB.
    The weird world – Western, educated, industrialised, rich and democratic – has responded poorly to Covid, and part of the reason is that the weird world had been existing at a distance from this central reality of human history. As Adam Tooze points out in his brilliant book Shutdown, 91 per cent of deaths in the contemporary West are from noncommunicable diseases like cancers and strokes and heart attacks, many of them illnesses associated with modern lifestyles. The equivalent figure in sub-Saharan Africa is 34 per cent. We have a generation of leaders in the West who have no visceral understanding of the risks posed by infectious illness. In addition, as David Runciman has pointed out, politicians and government don’t get credit for the disasters and failures they prevent. The combination of these two factors – generational obliviousness and the bias away from the good governance of prevention – goes a long way to explaining why the UK government, despite having had the possibility of pandemic at the top of its risk register since that register was instituted in 2008, was so woefully unprepared for an event it was its job to predict and either prevent or mitigate."

    The world is perfect. Appreciate the details.
