Re: Coronavirus

Chuff, how should I reply to this ?? hmm ? I could say somethig like " I understand you Chuff...you have to live almost like an incel with a flaccid micropenis and that causes frustration. Bitterness. Emptiness."

But I cant type something like that because that's not my style.
What I can suggest instead of typing random insults you could say " FD you are wrong there and there.. all is wrong.. or please can you give more info on this/that" .
So please, continue writing your emails.. I know you'd like to keep on writing more e-mails to the Local and cry and weep how you want them to bring back some bullies here so you can feel cool again.

Well you did write it, very clearly, so saying people are 'incels with a flaccid micropenis' clearly is your style. And yes, you do appear to have the mental age of a child. Also, your last sentence makes absolutely zero logical sense, although I am not sure that sound logic is something that can be ascribed to any of your garbled pseudo-scientific posts.

Re: Coronavirus

Did I type to you "you are this or that, micropenis or not" ? No. I didnt.

You on the other hand, came after my post to tell me how I have an IQ of a child, agonising breakedown..

My answer to you was an illustration meaning words typed in a figurative sense.

Is that hard for you to comprehend? But I do feel how you sort of agree with that and I'm not surprised at all, ..

Remember how you were crying not long ago and you were asking for the members of the forum to sign the petition you crafted for the Local

The rule you should re-learn here is: if you dont like what someone writes, someone thinks, the way they joke, etc. then ignore it or come and attack what they write/say not the person.

Re: Coronavirus

From a risk management perspective it's nice to have 50% of the population vaccinated and the other half unvaccinated. Anyone remembers never put all your eggs in one basket? I know I will read like a psycho but diversification is OK for investing, why not for humans?

Imagine scenario 1: vaccine is safe and effective. Unvaccinated people will die at a higher rate than vaccinated one, vaccinated people keep humans alive. Imagine scenario 2: vaccine has bad long terms consequences, and the unvaccinated ones keep humans alive.

I chose to get the vaccine because I believe the probabilities of the vaccine to be safe and effective are high. But, I don't know it for sure. Unvaccinated people are eggs on a 2nd basket.

Anyway, there's something worse than a few more deaths per 100K people this year: social division. I guess there's people in the CH federal council thinking about how to minimize the death count. This is a worthy goal. But, dividing people is not something good in the long term.

We (the people) should be united, not divided. If someone unvaccinated could not enter the cinema, restaurant of hockey arena, well.....screw them, I won't give them my money until every one can enter.

Re: Coronavirus

Here we are dealing with coronacrap covid illness, exchanging information, hunting graphs in the morning, stats, quotes, we're more on the pubmed.nih.gov than on any other site...

And Chuff, just decided to pop in, does not contribute to the discussion for at least 20-50 pages back, launches some below the waist insults..and now what ? you want us to flood the topic for 2pages doing pingpong ?

That's not childish that's just showing some utter ignorance and biterness.

If you have something to tell me then pm me and tell me all you think, dream about me and even give me some advice since obviously you think you've got a high IQ

I am not a fan of the passport thing, but I will certainly not limit my freedoms to show solidarity with someone who chose not to get vaccinated.

Another preprint paper finds the natural immunity to be significantly higher than that from the vaccines.

Also supports the strategy in Switzerland of previously infected receiving a single dose of the vaccine, although the sample size of this group is quite small.

Comparing SARS-CoV-2 natural immunity to vaccine-induced immunity: reinfections versus breakthrough infections

https://www.medrxiv.org/content/10.1....24.21262415v1
The elephant in this room is they selected the "natural immunity" unvaccinated group who were reinfected from the Israeli database of confirmed COVID-19 cases.

Since the people who were infected and not vaccinated are mostly young so if reinfected were likely asymptomatic and therefore would not be tested and entered into the Israeli database of confirmed COVID-19 cases.

The study admits this, I quote;
Quote:
we might be underestimating asymptomatic infections, as these individuals often do not get tested.

Re: Coronavirus

komsomolez, it just a matter of time when you will realise how the vaccine is not a gurantee for anything.
Let's say, you will avoid someone unvaccinated because they represent -danger- but you will be around vaccinated people.

But the vaccinated person can still have the virus since you know, in the basic description of the vaccine it says : you can still have the virus but you will not have the fatal form (your body will make sure you fight the infection)

Therefore there is no difference from the two. Both can catch covid.
Researches at MIT have found how fragments of genes of the corona virus can enter our chromosomes.

It's not precisely a freedom if freedom has an expiration date. Is it 1 year? If so, my freedom expires on July 1st 2022.

The covid certificate is similar to a driving license, which is a privilege, not a fundamental right.

Another story. Wife just told me that in one of the schools where she works, they plan to make a show in a theater by early October. It will be fun if half the parents and grandparents cannot enter the theater.

Well, I'm not hurt. I'm just a passing traveler around here. One of the privileges of being a rootless expat. Let's see what happens.

What else is to be expected though? This from the people who gave us "you should wear your mask to your table, but may take it off once you're there". Basically like being given a corner of the Swimming Pool to p**s in, and that's with the assumption masks work!

Notice restaurants will be expected check Covid Passes, but nothing about trains and busses. Again, like everything in this Pandemic, it makes zero sense.
Once again the boring daily moan about masks.

Somebody posted recently EF is getting more interesting but some still post the same old boring stuff day after day after day.....

Re: Coronavirus

Britain is starting to pay the price for the lockdowns:

Quote:
Deaths in Britain above average for sixth week running

Experts warn that a year of healthcare disrupted by the Covid crisis may now be beginning to show

A total of 10,372 deaths in England and Wales were registered in the week ending Aug 13, according to the Office for National Statistics. This is 14 per cent above the five-year average – or 1,270 more deaths. Of those, 544 are due to Covid, with the majority from unknown causes.

Separate data from Public Health England suggest that heart disease, diabetes and cirrhosis are well above normal levels, with health experts concerned that conditions left untreated last year may have begun to claim lives.

Charities have consistently warned that a health timebomb was looming because people could not access appointments or operations at the height of the pandemic, while many stayed away because they did not want to burden the NHS.

Prof Carl Heneghan, director of the Centre for Evidence-based Medicine at the University of Oxford, said the Government should be worried about the persistence of the effect and be investigating what is causing the high non-Covid mortality.

He said: “I think we’re now seeing the effects of delayed and disrupted preventive care coming through.”

Between May 2020 and May this year, deaths at home from diabetes, Parkinson’s disease, dementia and Alzheimer’s disease were 60 per cent higher than the 2015-19 average.

Surely that is "with" dementia and Alzheimer’s disease not "from".
