    So what we ask of people -- it's not all that fucking hard -- is to avoid posting blatantly political shit (riser, that's a pretty obvious example; if you want to post shit like that, go to poliass). But we also ask people to understand that sometimes politics bleeds in because it just does.

    The fact that some maggots feel a thread on vaccination is inherently POLITICAL is fucking bananas. Just because a topic has been heavily politicized doesn’t make it political.

    Anyways, I’ll say it again: tons of good info in this thread. It’d be a shame to make it go away because some people can’t resist posting pictures of the POTUS and other people are so deeply offended by them they demand the entire thread be shunted into the corner.
    focus.

    I tested negative on Monday afternoon, felt fine on Tuesday afternoon, then tested positive on Wednesday morning (and again this afternoon, just for sport). These were all with rapid antigen tests, which I am glad we had sitting in the cabinet.

    Thank you.
    agreed, mostly -
    I definitely hope the thread can be preserved, even if at times posting to these threads might be suspended ;

    There do appear to be a couple of posters who seem intent on forcing a decision regarding these threads ; alternatively, I would ask that they be dealt with individually.


    also fellow posters, these forums are a service from TGR ;
    we are here through the Company's generosity and grace -
    abuse it, and we may lose the forums.

    my thanks to TGR. skiJ

    Portland area hospitals are slammed with patients testing positive for coronavirus, reaching numbers fast-approaching the peak of the delta wave.
    But even as the surge puts unprecedented strain on the hospital system, it appears those hospitalizations are, for the most part, for less severe cases than before.

    “I think it is fair to say that this is the most stress we have seen on our system since the beginning months of the pandemic,” Dr. Kevin Olson, chief executive of clinical programs for Providence Health & Services in Oregon, said in a statement.
    On Thursday, 393 people who tested positive for coronavirus were hospitalized in the region that stretches from Clackamas County to the coast, just 44 short of the peak hospitalizations Sept. 8. There’s no sign that hospitalizations are going down, and the region could easily meet, or even exceed, the previous peak.

    “We are seeing fewer patients in need of critical care,” Olson said. “Hospitalized patients are less sick than those in the delta wave.”
    But those numbers tell only part of the story, as hospitals struggle to find and keep workers.
    “We are in an extreme staffing shortage,” Olson said.

    Gov. Kate Brown said this week she will deploy 1,200 National Guard troops to 50 hospitals statewide to help make up for the shortage in workers.

    Are you offended?

    Anyway, back on track, maybe Omicron has peaked in some places?

    It's a lot harder to mop up a diaperload of fail than it was to shit it.

    How fucking dumb are you to think you just made a clever argument for MAGA? Very fucking dumb, that's how dumb you are and how dumb you think everyone else is.

    Is your mom dumb too?

    I hope your recovery is smooth. Did you throat swab or just nasal swab?

    I had a mildly runny nose this morning, which is typical for me during dry windy winter wx patterns like we have now. Just had a coworker (haven't seen him since early December) have similar symptoms and test positive with an at-home test today. We have 2 test kits left at home. Current plan is to test the night before (or early morning of) my next work day at the ski hill (Sunday). my household has been living in kn95 when needing to be indoors around people other than my household (I even shaved my beard to improve fit).

    as the mods mentioned there is always going to be some political nature to discussing a pandemic with regards to public health measures, the CDC, the individual state approaches, the courts etc. But we should be able to keep that from getting out of control.

    Indeed and total mortality stays exactly the same as it was before the COVID hoax began right?

    By the way, don't we all have to click on a waiver saying we agree to viewing potentially offensive content in the Padded Room? Seems like if you're willing to look at threads here you should be willing to live with some politics, religion, etc.

    See if we remain fair? We scolded riser for posting purely political shit in this thread, and your way to check for fairness is to post more purely political shit in response? Fuck off.

    What part of this:

    did you not understand?

    To be crystal clear, posting purely political shit in here is frowned upon. Posting more purely political shit to try and stick a thumb in our eye is even more frowned upon. We don't give a fuck who or what offends you or what pieces of flair you are wearing. Read this paragraph over 3 times before posting.
