    The Fundamental Question of the Pandemic is Shifting

    We understand how this will end. But who bears the risk that remains?

    I have a ski acquaintance who is currently a tech and in school to be an RN who is refusing to get vaccinated until it is mandatory. He is convinced it will become mandatory eventually. I asked him why wait if you are going to get it anyways. His answer is that he’s worked in the hospital for the last year plus around Covid and he hasn’t gotten it yet so why would he get sick now. I asked him if he really thought the vaccine wouldn’t improve any immunity he may already have, and he seemed to have not really thought about that. I was incredulous.

    Well, since it was a friggin' DOCTOR (Tenpenny) that was leading the magnetized mob, why would you be surprised that some nurses followed their leader????? I bet Rand Paul is pissed he didn't say it first.

    She may have a point, given that fertility in the US and around the world is declining. (Some of that is voluntary, of course. Some is due to bad sperm and sperm counts I believe.)

    It seems that, like the anti-maskers and anti-vaxers, those who have been on the "liberal" side of Covid issues are reluctant to change their views as the facts change. (Covid isn't actually a liberal or conservative thing of course, but we seem to have made it one.)

    Does that mean my tin foil hat sticks better if I'm vaccinated?

    Countries with more than 1M population. I mean, technically we're second in the world since Malta with its 500,000 people is 70-something-percent vaccinated, but Canada could do this entire population in a day. So fuck Malta.

    Canada has fucking killed it with getting vaccines in as many people as possible, as soon as possible. I know the conservatives would have us believe otherwise, but that pesky Trudeau and his pals have done admirably in securing doses for the country.

    They are. The second doses are increasing exponentially.

    Ontario cranked out ~200k doses yesterday (new record), with ~130k being seconds. This is being done in 'hot spots' where the Delta Variant exists. I predict Canada will be the safest country to be in for the next 2-3 years, if you care about COVID.

    Maybe he's waiting for FDA approval, which hasnt happened yet.

    That's really great news for Canada. I think these types of charts will eventually need to be updated/changed to adjust for the vaccines that were administered that aren't as effective. for example, Chile and Brazil are heavy on Sinovac.

    On a bulletin board outside the post office of a very upscale CT. town. There's a little place next door that sells twenty dollar cheeses.

    The world is perfect. Appreciate the details.

    LOL! Those symptoms sound like puberty, pregnancy, old age and menopause all rolled into one aka life.

    BTW - what is "sweat gland radiation penetration?" Sounds naughty.

    The whole reason for 5G is to reduce the cost of laying fiber pipe to your house is zero. Well, one. And another one is to make an army of Rosemary's babies.
