Covid is Over (If You Want It)
« on: November 27, 2021, 04:58:33 PM »
"To me, it feels like the nation is on the verge of collectively exhaling after what can only be described as a physically arduous and psychologically burdensome 24 months. We’ve lost some family and friends, we’re all a couple years older, our perspectives have shifted - yet, if you’re reading this, you’re one of the billions of members of the human race relentlessly marching forward.

Together, we have dealt with an assault on our senses for nearly two years and, this holiday season, it’s time to just let that shit go."

FSUW are not for entry level daters. FSUW don't do vague FSUW like a man of action so be a man of action  If you find a promising girl, get your butt on a plane. There are a hundred ways to be successful and a thousand ways to f#ck it up
Kiss the girl, don't ask her first.
Get an apartment not a hotel. DON'T recycle girls

California Governor Gavin Newsom has contracted Covid. I am not in California
any longer. California was among the most shutdown states in the USA and
correct me if I am wrong but Gov Gaslight Newsom received two vaccine shots
and two boosters, and now has Covid. 



I think that most people can now agree that there is nothing you can do to
avoid getting it and that all vaccines can do is to lessen the severity of the
illness.

You can get any infection despite being vaccinated. No vaccine is 100% effective. Smallpox is gone despite having a 5% failure rate. Polio was 10%. Immunity doesn't mean "I'm 100% never going to get this". It essentially boosts your own immune system to be prepared for the infection. You may notice they all work differently. Certain vaccines take 4 shots over several years. Some 1 shot. Some change yearly. If you do get the disease it will be far less severe. I've had asshole spiting in my face in the ER TRYING to give it to me.

One can be hit by lighting, your odds are pretty good & in some cases it might be desirable. Regarding Polio the vaccine is close to 100% effective.

Pity there is not a vaccine for ignorance.

I'm not anti vaccine at all.
However ,
I don't know anyone fully vaccinated for covid19 ,that hasn't caught covid19.
So with that being a small not important sample,I still feel pretty strongly it's not  as effective  as the seasonal flu shots in terms of efficacy in not contracting the virus.
Its  seems agaisnt all.odds for those I know to be some minority/ anomaly.


I don't doubt it lessens the symptoms.
I've also had a friend pass away that was vaccinated  and an aquantence that was vaccinated and lost his toes after being on a ventilator and in ICU for extended time.

I take about 5K IUs of vitamin D3 on a daily basis. If you look on Youtube you'll find a large number of medical doctors recommending vitamin D3 for Covid.

According to these doctors vitamin D3 not only lessens your chance of catching Covid it also lessens the severity of Covid if you catch it.

Taking D3 might also reduce the risk of catching other respiratory diseases such as the flu.

I am fully vaccinated and have never caught it. I have friends who are fully vaccinated, and they have never caught it neither. Not as large sample size as in thousands of people. 
3) There has been no "threat" to invade Ukraine. The US invented that and fed it to a complicit media.

That's one of the dumbest statements I've ever read. Then you imply I'm ignorant. Post your bona fides. I'll give you 37 pages of transcripts if you want.

El stupido, you are indeed ignorant. I contracted Polio in 1972 in Connecticut. I am now battling PPS.

Save/spare us your 37 pages use it for toilet paper.

Contrarian is correct. Though I should note I have lectured in University to students.
