Message 2081330 - Posted: 31 Jul 2021, 22:10:35 UTC - in response to Message 2081323.  

You should be getting yourself vaccinated for your own good health.

Body is a Wonderful Thing. Everyone is Different. One Person can get a Shot and ALL is FINE. Another Person gets Shot; Goes into CONVULSIONs and DIEs or Becomes a Veggie.

Indeed, anything is possible. However note, that great care and great effort and great testing have been done to be sure that the vaccines are as safe as they can be.

The vaccine safety is impressive with literally hundreds of millions of people safely vaccinated for a good healthy effect.

The number of people suffering bad side effects remains minimal. We're talking in the world of one-in-a-million chance of something bad. Note also that with so many people vaccinated, we now know all the possible (very) rare side effects and we have tests and treatments for that.

In contrast, we are now seeing nearly half of all people suffering the latest COVID variants suffering bad side effects and too many suffer bad long term 'side effects' from COVID.

So, what odds do you want? One-inna-million (vaccine) or 50:50 (COVID) chance for your side effects?


Medical Mistakes KILL Many per year. People with PHDs; MDs; RNs; etc. making an HONEST MISTAKE. Yeah.

For vaccinations, such problems are vanishingly rare if at all. You've got a worse chance of drowning on your bottle of water afterwards!


Big Pharma. MmmmmMmmmMmmmmm. Their 'Products' have left Many a Person........

Indeed, Big Pharma is a big greedy problem for too much of their business practices. And indeed, some of Big Pharma is profiting too much from COVID...

However, the vaccines are simple enough that ya really can't go wrong with them! (And there are no addictive properties!!)


I'll DECIDE what to JAB in my Arm...
Yep

Good, and good luck!


Stay safe folks!

... not to worry, I would have thought you have gotten the word.
AS Q stated you will get your manditory vacine which contains the mind controlling microchip which Bill Gates had developed. It uses 5G which has serrious Chinese connections, once engaged you will be rendered compliant.
What's not to like?

Hey! That needs a public health warning for satire/sarcasm and that all that is a joke and that "Q-Anon" are totally a joke!!

Meanwhile, in stark contrast to all that, reality is very real.

When I hear PEOPLEs Experience and Testimonials 'bout this 'Chip, then I can Make An INFORMED; PERSONAL; DECISION.

I'm Sure You and Q consider this FAIR. As Far a Bill Goes. MEH

Eh?

Yep

Eh?

We are a very long way away and many decades away from being able to make anything like 'nano-chips' or 'nano-bots'... That is still the stuff of Science Fiction (make-believe) movies!

There are some totally crazy conspiracy videos doing the rounds about supposedly 'reprogramming' your body cells... And those videos are all just bunkum to scare children.


Meanwhile, we have a very real natural virus (nothing to do with computer viruses!) doing the rounds that is making people feel badly ill. We have some real-world vaccines to give your body useful practice to stay healthy against the COVID virus. This ain't some mild 'flu'... We have a killing pandemic if that has somehow been missed!

You don't need to breathe it in deeply, just enough to get sufficient virus particles to the top of the lungs and it can either migrate deeper, or start to develop an infection there, then it can migrate deeper. Noting that there have been a few reports (allegorical?) where it didn't enter the lungs but got transferred via the oesophagus to the gut, where it set up an infected site and the victims suffered a rather unpleasant and extended dose of <well you can imagine> but no lung related issues.

Outside a few Moments Ago fO 'bout an Hour. Doin' some Daily Work. Part of my Twice Daily Air; UV; Exercise. In Fall/Winter with Mega Leaf
Falls, It takes 4 to 6 Hours divided between Two Outings.

I was in Street. I heard someone walking up Street from South. She, with dog passed me on East North East. I did not check breeze. Could of been from ENE. She said Hi. I said HI. Dog Looked at me. She spoke to Dog to Disinterest Dog in me. Cute Doggie.

Neither of Us and Dog were MASKed. I May have Taken a Deeper Breath/Breaths than Usual. She Was Gorgeous. She, Noticing an
UGLY OLD Man, surely Did Not Increase Breath. Unless my Ugliness and UnKemp Appearance bothered Her Negatively. A Supposition,
I Admit.

We were 'bout 12 feet from each other.

Thinking about it, My Breathing might have been Steady. Could Have Deepened by 10-20% Uncontrolled, due to above reason.

Nasty CV might have Sailed Over and Dropped into my Lungs or Belly. Don't know at this Moment. Later will Tell.

I AGREE. I Had NO CONTROL of Her Breath or Mine. Because We did NOTHING to Separate Farther. Bad on Us. Taking Chances.

Whew!!!!!!

I could of Moved Farther Away when I heard them Coming. I DID NOT. BAD ON ME.

I'm Thinking 'bout My Deep Lung Recesses and My Belly Right Now. I'm getting Nervous and Frankly Scared. Again Time will Tell.

No Control and Lack of Foresight and Decision May have DONE ME IN.

Oh Well. Deep Thoughts. Baby!!!!!

Yep

May we All have a METAMORPHOSIS. REASON. GOoD JUDGEMENT and LOVE and ORDER!!!!!

Officialdom gone crazy. Anglers must pass police vetting, sit security test, have two negative Covid tests and pay for four security guards to fish at Admiralty Pier, Dover
Anglers have been told they can only fish on a pier they've used for over 100 years if they pass police vetting and sit a health and safety test.

The restrictions on Dover Sea Angling Association (DSAA) members have been set out by The Port of Dover which blames security threats for the change.
The long list of the hoops to jump through includes having two Covid-negative tests, paying for and providing four security guards, and not being allowed to take fishing knives or scissors - an important part of their tackle.
...
Using £180,000 of its own money, its members paid for repairs and later spent more money on toilets - an investment of £250,000 in total excluding rent.
As such they feel they are stakeholders and should be factored into any decisions about it.

...Yep. All depends not on what is said but how old one is. Case in point is what is actually said in the report.
He told the newspaper it "was commonly used when I was a kid, with a different application".
As for the label "LGBTQ", have a problem with that.
L = Lesbian
G=Gay - so in modern context,all Parisians are gay?
B=Bisexual
T=Transgender - back in the day, it was taken to mean transvestite (Just think Lou Reed - good song until it was pointed to many of us back then what it was all about - still a good song though).
Q=Queer (back in the day, we knew about the LHBT's & Q was for nut jobs as in "queer in the head".
So let's look at language both spoken & written.
WTH are you to make suggestions to my choices? Do you know about vaping/e-cigs?
It's not just harmless water vapor. The "e-juice" that fills the cartridges usually contains nicotine (which is extracted from tobacco), propylene glycol, flavorings and other chemicals.
Oh, that's all right then.
So I smoke.
I do not smoke in vehicles belonging to others - I do not smoke in any vehicle I'm driving with passengers.
I do not smoke in other peoples homes.
Any one that tells me, in my own home about smoking is shown the door - T/S if they don't like it.
BTW, thanks for the implication that I'm bent. Showed it to the missus, she still can't stop laughing.

Indeed so.

The glycol isn't really needed but seems to be a big thing for some to emulate that old steam train chuff-chuff cloud effect. The rest of the mix in there have their associated health hazards, but all to a far lesser extent than the unholy burnt cocktail produced when flames and smouldering are used. The more elaborate vaping devices give control of the vape temperature and allow a personalized mix for whatever effect you might want, all without actually burning anything. Still does biological damage, but much less so than the old brimstone ways.


... BTW, thanks for the implication that I'm bent. Showed it to the missus, she still can't stop laughing.

Good you appreciated the humor for the example of context. (Certainly no implications intended!)


With our ever evolving language and the changes to the assumed meanings for words, how soon before some of our films are seen as being embarrassingly 'out of place' for their use of the old meanings of language? For myself, various of the old TV sitcoms are now just unwatchable cringe worthy, rather than funny/humorous as was the case back in the day...

None was actually taken. Glad you saw the point I tried making.
The problem today is that too many, especially in the media, both broadcast & print, make implications/dubious reporting that target the inexperienced/lack of knowledge out there that take offence as they "perceive" it to include them.
I don't use the term ignorant for the simple fact, we are all ignorant in our own way. We just cannot know everything, it is impossible for the human brain to comprehend.
I still enjoy winding up intellectuals regarding the Lancaster bomber, especially at air shows.
It never existed - as a designed aircraft.
Too many just do not stop & think - main reason for that is that they are too full of themselves.
I look forward to the day when whacko/weirdo/queer(in the head) become taboo in language.
The day that its replacement in today's climate of course, will be hilarious & one which I'll take full advantage of, the same way I do with xenophobic.
