Covid

Come to think of it, I had a chat this evening at the skatepark with a lad in his early 20s who won’t get a vaccine as his mum is a mad anti vaxxer, as he said himself, and he wants to do something right by her after all the hell he put her through as a kid apparently. He went on to say that he’d spent the summer in Scotland’s Western Isles, learning Scots Gaelic, (which was pretty easy for him as he’s fluent in Irish), and now that he’s back, he can’t get over the ongoing restrictions here, with nightclubs still shut, yet Scotland still has 11/20 of Europe’s worst infection rates. Still, he wants to go back to uni here to study, yet can’t do it person because the rest of the class of 6 want to remain remote and he can’t fathom how not having a vaccine is now “interfering with my education”.

True, it’s a choice to get one, albeit loaded with a social contract to not be a plague vector, but actively denying proven scientific research and fact with Youtube videos is not a personal choice, it’s fucking delusional.

Loads of people in martial arts are doing this “Im fit, herd immunity, its only fat people dying” etc. Totally backward

This will only get worse with Joe Rogan catching it, being apparently dosed with Ivermectin or whatever it’s called, and getting better. The Vitamin D, exercise and time in the sauna/ice bath bro science will be unbearable for years to come

Where does his chin end? Haha

it’s a bit of a bummer but it’s interesting to see natural selection at play via social media. Also, the similarities are so great across all the people featured there. Almost all meme-recyclers and they just parrot the same old shit. It’s hardly individual thought going on there at all.

Also, it’s telling that so few people are talking about vaccines in the ‘i lost my brother in law today’ posts. They’re all just ‘he was a kind man who would help anyone’. And actually it’s pretty obvious that they wouldn’t even help themselves off the fucking couch 99% of the time.

Some good news…

the Denver Post reported that Enyart was a practiced and brutal provocateur who once used a show on cable television to mock by name people who died of Aids.

So the child has been coughing most of the day and got a raised temperature, we’re certain it’s a cold (first week of proper school) but we wanted to be sure so we took her to get tested about an hour ago and it ended with me covered in cheese pizza puke.

Poor little bugger was mortified. The staff were really good about it, I imagine it was the most excitement they’d had that day. She was happy as she got a shit load of stickers, tried to explain the importance of keeping them in a shoebox and never sticking them in anything but she is 4 after all.

I have some stickers I’ve been saving as they will only look good on certain car bumpers/rear windows

We had the same thing earlier in the year. Our boy didn’t enjoy the experience at all (it was his second time having a pcr), but soon changed his tune when we walked out with a stack of rainbow stickers!
