What truly astounds me about Covid is everyone's over reaction to it.  We do not need mandatory lockdowns or masks.  The risk of getting it (and/or dying from it) is no higher than contracting the common flu.  People are already reporting getting it with less.. or even no symptoms at all.   This should tell any sane, rational person that we humans are naturally developing a resistance to it.

PS, I wont bother responding to any emotional pleas.  I've heard them all.. they mean nothing
If you had any brains you would be dangerous.
Wait a minute- you refuse to wear a mask or social distance...
you are dangerous.
I hate to say it Kornhole- but grow a brain.

Knock off the personal attacks. They don't convince anyone of anything.
It wasn't a personal attack. It was an attack on stupidity in general.

Come on. If I said "grow a brain, RC" wouldn't you think I was making a personal attack on you?

If you just said "People who refuse to wear masks or social distance are dangerously stupid" it would not be a personal attack.

^ Yeah- your right.
I just get emotional at times.
I know that's not an excuse-but I meant what I said .
But I'm not sorry I said it. Because that would be a lie.
And unlike some leaders in this country- I can't lie. It just feels wrong to me.
And me insulting people is not comparable to morons who don't care about anyone's health.
If they are spreading bulls**t- and I refute them- kick me off the board.
Aw f**k! I did it again! I called him a "moron"! Dam I need therapy, maybe!

But yeah- grow a brain...not a cool thing to say.

I should have said "grow a brain in a lasagna pan"!

Why do I get the feeling that you'll start taking this seriously after someone close to you gets it and goes onto the ventilators?

When a person says they don't care if people die- and quote phony numbers- no matter how emotional or how it effects others in a personal way-that person has a cold heart.
I ain't talking about you,Zap. Your crazy, but so am I. I'm talking about Kornholio.
Oh f**k s**t dam! I forgot- I can't say bad things to people! It might hurt their feelings!  Buggedout

3,243 Americans died of COVID-19 yesterday.
For perspective - that is the death toll of 9/11, the OKC bombing, and about a half dozen or more school shootings combined.
And folks still won't take commonsense, every day precautions that could limit the spread.
They'd rather argue about abortion, or the election, or peddle conspiracy theories than acknowledge this killer that's stalking us.
America has become the idiocracy of the world.

On a bit more positive note, I talked some to somebody I know who is a PhD in virology/bacteriology stuff, and works in gene sequencing and editing.  He is well versed in vaccines and relevant information, in other words.  He went over the university he works at and their presentation on vaccination rollout plans they have and related research. 

General gist I can remember - new vaccines use the same mechanisms and contents as other ones, there shouldn't be any surprises with it.  Much, much, much safer than getting Covid, including long term complications people theorize about (theoretically possible, but unlikely - and Covid itself can give them).  Oh, they still don't 100% know if it blocks transmission (some viruses, even if you're vaccinated, you can still catch it temporarily and spread it to others while not suffering ill effects), so it probably will not be "you're vaccinated, no need for a mask any longer" - that won't happen until herd immunity is achieved, most likely.. 

Expect restrictions to varying extents throughout 2021 as we get there.  But, we WILL get there.  End is in sight, even if it still feels far off.

Oh, final bit on the vaccine - the one they were talking about is two shots, and the second shot makes some people sick enough they missed work the day AFTER they got it (day of was fine).  A minority, but it happens.  Think like the after effects flu shots give some people, but worse.  Just something to be aware of.

Beginning Wednesday only grocery stores will be open and there's a curfew from 9 pm - 5 am. No fireworks on New Year which I'm fine with.

Bellyaching in order to bellyache is indefensible.  Of course, your question will be regarded as an "emotional plea".

An emotional plea, for math.   *nods*  Got it.
